VoidAlert TM heat sensitive sensor-wire is installed through the protected area between the VoidAlert TM Remote Indicator and VoidAlert TM Test Point. The Test Point is typically installed in an accessible location to facilitate ongoing engineer maintenance.
The VoidAlert TM ‘Test-Point’ incorporates a keyswitch with ‘normal’ and ‘test’ positions. Operation of the key switch tests the system for both ‘Open Circuit’ and ‘Fire’ conditions. In order to fault test the sensor-wire, the ‘test’ mode key position is selected and a simulated fire signal is generated to activate the Fire Alarm System. VoidAlert TM can be interfaced with all types of Fire Alarm System including conventional and addressable.
The VoidAlert TM Remote Indicator illuminates when the system is activated.
