Advanced Detection System

Scorpion Smoke Detector Test System
Scorpion® is a unique, functional smoke detector test system for Aspirating Smoke Detection (ASD) systems that solves a number of long standing challenges, assists compliance with international codes and standards and delivers radical time, cost and disruption savings.

Scorpion is a micro smoke generator permanently installed adjacent to a sampling hole on an ASD pipe, typically at the furthest sampling hole. The smoke generator is connected to an access point mounted at a convenient, easy to access location at ground level.


Functional testing of the smoke detector is then easily and safely achieved from the Access Point (with an Engineer’s Controller) whenever required.

Scorpion makes testing detectors in lift shafts, warehouses, factories, or secure areas as simple as testing a detector within easy reach.
