The 1000 Series Compact Fire Detector Test Tunnels are based on the same technology as the 2000 Series. They are, however, smaller, bench-top designs with control electronics integrated into the structure of the tunnel. The 1000 series test tunnels are ideally suited to performance testing to EN54-7 and EN54-5 for factory production control, but can also be used in test and R&D laboratories.


They are supplied assembled and virtually ready to use. The PC base unit is pre-configured, and most of the wiring is already in place on the tunnel. Clear instructions (and our support where required) enable most users to start using their tunnel without one of our specialists having to be present.


• Smaller bench-top design
• Integrated control electronics
• Ideally suited for performance testing to EN54-7, EN54-29, EN14604 and EN54-5
• Assembled and ready to use
• Comprehensive technical support
• Enables manufacturers to comply with AVCP requirements
• Optional training available

The following variants are available in the 1000 Series:

 

  • 1300 heat detector test tunnel:  This is designed for testing to EN54-5 with a starting temperature range from 250C to 550C.  It is capable of carrying out testing for grades A1 to C to EN54-5 from the typical application temperature.
  • 1400 combined smoke/heat detector test tunnel:  This is designed for testing to EN54-7 and EN14604 from 250C to 550C, and to EN54-5 with a starting temperature range from 250C to 550C (as for 1300).
  • 1700 heat detector test tunnel with cooling:  This is designed for testing to EN54-5 with a starting temperature range from 50C to 550C.  It is capable of carrying out testing for grades A1 to C to EN54-5 from the typical application temperature, and low temperature start tests for suffix R detectors.
  • 1800 combined smoke/heat detector test tunnel with cooling:  This is designed for testing to EN54-7 and EN14604 between 00C and 550C, and to EN54-5 with a starting temperature range from 50C to 550C (as for 1700).


The following additional options are available:

1000 Spare hatch with fixed mounting plate for up to 6 detectors (for 1100 test tunnel).
1001 Spare hatch with fixed mounting plate for up to 6 detectors (for 1300-1800 tunnels).
1002 Hatch with rotating detector mount for directional dependence testing, or for tests at a selected orientation (for 1100 test tunnel).
1003 Hatch with rotating detector mount for directional dependence testing, or for tests at a selected orientation (for 1300-1800 tunnels).
1004 Spare rotating detector mount (for use with 1002 or 1003).
1006 Airspeed meter (‘anemometer’) with analogue output integrated into the software.
1007 Interface and mount for MIC (standard reference for ionisation detectors).
1008 Optical scatter smoke sensor and software extension to enable simultaneous optical smoke and heat ramp testing (for use with 1400 and 1800).
1009 Dazzle test rig (non EN54-7 version for R&D application only).
1010 Hatch and motorised rotating detector mount with software control (for 1100 test tunnel).
1011 Hatch and motorised rotating detector mount with software control (for 1300-1800 tunnels).

The overall mechanical parameters are as follows.

Overall size of tunnel: 2.10m long * 0.70m wide * 0.93m high.
Internal cross section of duct (1100): 450mm wide by 290mm high.
Internal cross section of duct (1300-1800): 420mm wide by 260mm high.
Working volume cross section for smoke detectors: 360mm * 200mm.
Working volume cross section for heat detectors: 300mm * 75mm.
Extract via 150mm diameter flexible duct (requires a back draught shutter on exit).
