Tyco Group—Simplex photoelectric smoke detectors and sensors
What are the defects?
The issue resulted from circuit board cleanliness during the manufacturing process. Residual contamination from a soldering process was not fully removed during a cleaning process. This contamination can potentially lower the sensitivity of the device to detect smoke under both high heat and high humidity conditions.
