Does the detection depend on the orientation of the enclosure?

  • The smoke chamber and smoke detector are not orientation dependents, but the mechanical design of the enclosure will affect the detection orientation, because it's going to have a direct effect on the airflow of the system.  For example, you don't want to place a large obstruction right next to the sensor and chamber because it will take extra time for the air to naturally flow around that, and increase your alarm time.
