Trutest is the world most technologically advanced field service test for smoke detectors It enables fire alarm technicians to the sensitivity of installed smoke detectors quickly easily and above all professionally TEST DETECTOR FUNCTION AND SENSITIVITY sensitivity can and does drift leads to false alarms to late alarms or no The need for functional testing introducing a smoke type is well recognised detectors shall be tested in to ensure smoke entry into the chamber and an alarm Testing with smoke or aerosol shall be permitted as test methods the requirement for sensitivity checks also clear in national standards shall be performed to that each smoke detector is its listed and marked range NFPA 72 1999 Table 7 2.2 Test Methods 13 g 1 is essential that routine tests are to ensure that the degree of sensitivity to fire maintained and users should themselves on this point NFPA 72 1999 Table 7 2.2 Test Methods 13 g 1 BS 5839 Part 1 1988 29.4.1 its measured introduction of smoke aerosol to the sensing of the installed detector enables the functional and checks to be combined a single cost effective test revolutionary product Trutest not only a smoke test aerosol through the vents the installed detector to the sensing chamber operates using a precision closed loop system measuring smoke obscuration and feeding back to a controlling microprocessor Reduces false alarms a huge in the industry Verifies the protection you from your detector Battery operated and light Simple to use Suits most detectors Calibrated in ft Tests installed detectors Self calibrates before testing Measures actual sensitivity leading device adds to sys TO BOTH CONVENTIONAL AND INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS DETECTORS detectors have no means of measuring their own sensitivity Their sensitivity drifts and so it should be tracked over a period of using Trutest DETECTORS the fire system panel of an intelligent system enables at best a check of the value of air response levels It does not the condition of the vents or ability of the detector to receive smoke into its sensing chamber Correlating an unmeasured smoke e g hand held can of smoke with a panel interrogation also does not produce a quantified test as US NFPA 72 confirms detector sensitivity shall not be measured using any device that administers an unmeasured concentration of or other aerosol into the detector NFPA 72 1999 7 3.2.1 introducing a measured and controlled smoke stimulus into the sensing chamber Trutest enables cross references to be made the independent Trutest readings and the analog readings from the system panel Only in this way can a true test of systems be achieved TEST MEASUREMENT standards permit sensitivity test frequencies to be extended after proven stability This relies on tracking drift which can be done only by actual sensitivity readings Trutest does not need two tests to check upper and lower limits which in itself does not establish actual Just one test provides an actual reading in ft which can be year on year to establish drift Other features include auto self calibration before each test telescopic adjustment to over 20ft 6m battery charge for a complete day testing all hardware
