Apollo Fire Detectors, the world-leading independent fire detector manufacturer, has added an EN54-20 approved Point Based ASD to its range of specialist detection products.
The Aspirating Smoke Detector (ASD) is an essential tool when it is impractical to place the detector head in situ.
The point based ASD has an IP65 enclosure, which provides protection against ingress from the environment. The code protection controls and bespoke removal key provide protection against vandalism and tampering.
Available in two variations, both use Discovery optical detectors and are fitted with a mini-switch monitor which allows for the monitoring of fail-safe fault relays. A maximum of 50m of sampling pipe can be utilised on a single chamber (ASD-1) and the dual version of this product allows for two 50m sampling runs (ASD-2).
The ASD is designed to operate in a wide range of environments and is often used in secure facilities where anti-ligature and anti-vandal are requirements; in lift shafts where access is difficult; in wet or dusty environments or in clean environments where access is restricted.
Neil Taylor, Sales & Marketing Director for Apollo, said: “We are delighted to have launched the Aspirating smoke detector. It adds another dimension to our product range and enhances our reputation as a world-leader in the development and manufacture of fire detection equipment.”
