Aspirating Smoke Detection (ASD) Systems

A variety of methods exist for functional ASD testing.  None of these are specifically designed for purpose and as a result often provide inconsistent results.

Gaining access to test aspirating smoke detection systems cannot only be disruptive – but can also require significant time and cost to arrange and carry out. Our Scorpion solution changes this, offering a consistent and reliable method of testing without disruption and the additional time and cost usually associated with testing.
