“Testing & Verification of ASD Products In Different Environments”
Presented by: Josh Dinaburg, Hughes Associates, Inc.
Sponsored by: Xtralis
Several models of aspirating smoke detectors (ASD) have been comparatively evaluated for alarm sensitivity in various operating environments. Tests have been conducted evaluating sensitivity in very early warning applications and moderate to highly contaminated environments. Accelerated life cycle testing in high contamination atmospheres was also conducted. Testing monitored the impacts on detector sensitivity resulting from both hardware contamination and software response, including both drift compensation and alarm threshold adjustment software. Sensitivity test results for various models of ASD will be presented and discussed as part of this webinar.
