Testifire allows for simple,
compliant functional testing of fire detectors. Suitable for smoke, heat and CO testing
it increases productivity on site and is the world’s leading solution for compliant testing of multi-sensor detectors.
Testifire is the world's first 3-in-1 detector tester with optional communications module and audit trail facility. Its design enables fast and efficient testing of Smoke, Heat or CO fire detectors and, with the ability to test with these stimuli sequentially or simultaneously, it is also the perfect tool for testing multi-sensor detectors. Smoke, Head and CO stimuli are all created in the single unit that is Testifire. There are no pressurized canisters of gas and stimuli are generated as required using processes fueled by replaceable capsules. Testifire is the result of several years of technological development and since launch, has continued to develop in response both to market feedback and new materials and technologies. By far the most advanced tester available, Testifire is UL certified and approved by leading detector manufacturers from around the world.
Testing with Testifire aids compliance with codes and standards globally. "The detectors shall be tested in place to ensure smoke entry into the sensing chamber and alarm response" NFPA 72 2002 Table 7-2.2 (Test Methods) 13.g.1 "Each smoke detector shall be tested for operation by introducing smoke or simulated smoke to the detecting chamber in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions" CAN/ULC
Overall significant time savings and productivity enhancements though: - deployment of latest-technology stimuli generation and delivery - replacement of multiple tools with a single tester - dramatic reduction in detector and system resent times through use of clearing mode • Substantial reduction in test times though combined stimuli deployment on multi-sensor detectors • Unique ability to activate detectors using complex interdependent sensor algorithm
