The 1000 Series Test Tunnel

1000 Series Test Tunnels

The 1000 Series Compact Fire Detector Test Tunnels are based on the same technology as our reference tunnel, the 2800. They are, however, smaller, bench-top designs.  The 1000 series test tunnels are ideally suited for performance testing to EN54-7 and EN54-5, for factory production control, and can also be used in test and R&D laboratories.

  • Smaller bench-top design
  • Integrated control electronics
  • Test to EN54-7, EN54-29, EN14604 and EN54-5
  • Perfect for R&D pre-compliance testing or low-volume production testing
  • Comprehensive technical support
  • Enables manufacturers to comply with AVCP requirements
  • Full training, calibration, service and maintenance packages

The following variants are available in the 1000 Series:

1100 smoke detector test tunnel: This designed for testing optical smoke detectors to EN54-7 or EN14604 at room 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).

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).

More 1000 Series Information

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).

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).
