    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies the requirements for the design, construction and performance of aspirated system type smoke detectors, used in automatic fire detection and alarm systems.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for the design, construction and performance of aspirated system type smoke detectors used in automatic fire detection and alarm systems. This Standard covers multi-point aspirated systems and their associated detector and control facilities. Single-point detectors installed with probes in air-handling ducts are not included.NOTE: Some of the requirements of this Standard are more onerous than those nominated in AS 1603.2 point-type smoke detectors as one multi-point aspirated detector can be installed to cover the total area nominated for one AZF in AS 1670.
