The XP95 Duct Probe air sampling unit is designed for use with 60 conventional smoke detectors for XP95 smoke detectors.
Note: This unit is not supplied with a Detector, please order this separately.
The unit enables smoke detectors to be sited within ventilation extract ducts in order to assist in the prevention of the spread of smoke by the ventilation system (as required by building regulations) and in addition to form part of the fire alarm system.
When designing fire detection systems incorporating smoke detectors in air sampling units reference must be made to Standards such as BS 5839: Pt1: 1988 or locally acceptable Codes of Practice.
Under no circumstances should a duct smoke detection system be used as the sole method of detecting fire, Open area detectors must also be used.
- The air sampling unit enables smoke detectors to monitor ventilation ducts without subjecting the detectors to high air velocities which could alter their sensitivity.
