FireVu 500 30 Metre N Heptane Fire Detection Test Video
This test was performed using the mid-range 35 meter detection FireVu 500 viewing a TF5 N Heptane test fire.
Reducing false alarms
The test was conducted at the BRE Watford independent test facility looking down a 100metre concrete slab allowing numerous tests to be conducted at various distances from the detector. Here the N Heptane was placed 30 metres from the detector and as can be seen in the video an alarm response was received in less than 20 seconds. A full day of tests was conducted and during that period no false alarms were received as a result of sun-light, people movement or any other activity.
