First users hail arrival of new smoke detector tester
Since its launch at Firex International in June, Solo 365 has proved a hit with service and maintenance companies quick to try the new product and explore the benefits it offers. With features unseen in any other tester, Solo 365 is designed to enable faster, simpler and cleaner functional testing of smoke detectors.
It’s instant; on-demand smoke generation means only the smoke needed to activate the detector is generated – resulting in less wasted smoke, faster clearing and the end of detector contamination. Unique features include a clearing mode – to push unwanted, remaining smoke away from the detector after testing and an auto-LED torch which makes for easy testing in dark areas.
Among the first users of Solo 365 was Ryan Wilson of Wilson’ Electrical, early feedback from Ryan focussed on the speed and simplicity Solo 365 bought to his daily detector testing. Watch the video for more and to see the product in use
Ryan’s not alone with his feedback, with engineers from Protec and Aspect Fire among those to have also enthused about the product – commenting particularly on its slim-line design and clearing mode.
The appeal of Solo 365 is set to widen further with the launch of an ASD adaptor later this month. This specially designed accessory replaces the clear cup on the tester – allowing for the smoke to be easily directed into a sampling hole along an ASD pipe run and for a functional test of the ASD system to be carried out.
