The FIRE STROBE 2000 signal is received optically by line of sight. The range varies with the ambient light and intensity of the strobe emitter.
A typical range varies from 150 feet to 500 feet. The detector will not allow false operation with unwanted signals from radio interference
and/or flashing headlights or loud sounds.

The acquisition time from the emitter light source to the discriminate module is approximately 500ms.
