The performance of smoke detectors in computer rooms

Heikki Ahola

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

Smoke detectors have been compared in an environment similar to a real computer room. Four different test fires were used: smouldering transformer coil, smouldering cable, smoke bomb producing white smoke and flaming polyurethane foam. The test samples included optical and ionisation point-type detectors, optical beam detectors, channel detectors and sampling detectors.
