Aspiration Smoke Detector

The ReadySET air aspirating (sampling) smoke detector is a central detection unit that actively draws air from a protected area through its sampling pipe and monitors the stream for the presence of smoke and other products of combustion. It can accommodate up to 10 sampling holes along a maximum pipe length of 164 ft (50 m). 

This versatile device brings all the benefits of aspirated air sampling to life safety applications – without the custom design requirements normally associated with this type of detection. Pre-engineered to meet a wide range prescribed application scenarios, ReadySET is an ideal solution for mission critical settings like assembly areas and laboratories, as well as large spaces like atria, and applications where concealed detection is desired. 

Thanks to advanced features that make it virtually impervious to dust and dirt, ReadySET is ideal for use in hostile environments that would disable other kinds of smoke detectors. Forward scattering optical detection adds early warning capability without the risk of nuisance alarms normally associated with high sensitivity smoke detection, while exclusive environmental compensation technology adds a high degree of reliability to an already rock-solid detection solution. 

ReadySET is sophisticated enough to handle even the most demanding jobs, yet simple enough to install without the burden of time-consuming engineering work. Predefined application scenarios clearly diagram how to lay out the pipe and where to drill the air intake holes. Field-configurable for a range of settings, it connects to any fire alarm control panel through dry contact relays. 

Standard Features 

For the installer… 

  • Simple installation without the need for a PC 
  • Simple relay for interface to other fire detection and control equipment 
  • Quick mounting to the wall by way of just three screws
