﻿Guide to aspirating smoke detection
Wagner’s 20-page A5 guide to aspirating smoke detection is described as an invaluable guide for consultants, fire-system designers and installers. It provides an introduction to ASD technology, European standards, designing and installing ASD systems, applications and an overview of ASD products.
ASD systems draw air samples continuously through a series of pipes with sampling hoses at regular intervals. This air is analysed for smoke particles, enabling fires to be detected at a very early stage — often before there is visible smouldering, an open fire occurs and before intense smoke develops. Such early detection is vital for mission-critical and high-risk applications.
