ASD (Aspirating Smoke Detection) Systems
Aspirating Smoke Detection (ASD) systems work by drawing air specimens, using a fan or extractor pump, through sampling points (small holes drilled into pipe work) throughout the protected space, to a detector sensing chamber. This allows an ASD system to deliver extremely early notification of a fire, enabling inspection within the earliest possible phase.
ASD alarm sensitivities can be designed to adjust to various levels, allowing use in areas requiring much more sensitivity than traditional detection methods, as well as those where sensitivity is normal.
This form of detection is ideal for non-volatile conditions as well as in computer system cabinets to provide alerts as to whether computer cabling, or certain computer components are getting past critical temperature points.
