Description of Fire Alarm Trainer
A two zone Fire Alarm Trainer control panel to Fire Alarm Trainer is mounted on the front of a glass reinforced plastic panel. One detector zone consists of a temperature detector and rate of rise temperature detector mounted in a fire retardant glass reinforced plastic case. The case has an internal divider and separate heater lamps designed to raise the temperature within the enclosure above the detector limits. Fire Alarm Trainer activates the detector and sets off the alarm system.
The second detector circuit consists of a manual call point followed by an optical smoke detector and ionised particle detector mounted in a similar box to the heat detectors. Apertures at the base of the box allow combustion products from a match or lighter or visible smoke from the generator supplied to be injected into the enclosure housing the two types of detector.
Experimental Capabilities of Fire Alarm Trainer
1. The Fire Alarm Trainer enables the following exercises to be carried out.
2. The Alarm Wiring Kits allow vocational students to wire detector, alarm and control panel circuits using either Low Smoke Zero Halogen fire resistant cable or the more common mineral insulated Copper Cable.
3. The detector and alarm components may be connected and commissioned to a control panel board as part of a complete kit or alternatively plugged into two connectors provided on the unit control panel.
