Fire Alarm Test #24
 
03:07
Test of a Simplex 4100 ES voice system in walk-test. The speakers sound out the address of each device tested. Also the key switches on the walls are remote test switches for duct detectors/dampers. The switch makes it easier to test them without having to take them apart. On another note, I apologize for the delay in uploads as I accidentally had all my saved footage erased. Im working diligently to get new videos out to you guys so please bear with me. Thanks again & more soon to come!

Smoke Control Damper Test/Demo
 
02:11
This is how an HVAC controlled smoke damper functions under general alarm conditions. Damper is actuated via a relay in the duct detector. I had the signals disabled as to not disturb occupants at the time. FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER: https://twitter.com/safetech0415

Fire Alarm Test #9
 
04:00
Video of a Simplex 4100 U system being tested in walk-test. All devices were part of a pre-existing 2001 system. The horns sound out the zone number each time a new zone is activated. If the same zone is tripped consecutively in walk-test, you will hear 2 short blasts.

Elevator Fire Service Demo (All Phases)
 
08:14
Demo of the basic fire service features we as technicians and inspectors have to check on a regular basis on any passenger or service elevator. Most of these features are often interfaced with the buildings fire alarm system or as is the case in this video, have a separate FACP dedicated specifically to these functions.

Fire Alarm Test #41
 
07:33
Test of a 4005 System in an old school building. Original panel to this facility was a Simplex 2001-8032 as noted by the old cabinet next to the current panel. The bell heard towards the end used to be an old trouble bell. It is now re-routed to the 4005 to sound in general fire alarm.

Silent Walk-Test Demo (4010 ES)
 
05:11
Demo of how the silent walk-test feature on a Simplex fire alarm panel works and logs test data. This is a good feature to use when not trying to cause a disturbance in the facility your working in. For this video I'm using a 4010ES panel.

Smoke Detector Sensitivity Test Demo
 
03:47
A smoke detector's sensitivity is a measurement of the threshold in which the unit will alarm upon detecting smoke. In this clip, I am demonstrating a test method used to measure sensitivity in a hardwired smoke detector. The equipment being utilized is a SDI TrueTest testing device. This device is designed to introduce a metered amount of smoke into the detector until it alarms. At this point, I take the final % measurement on the screen and it tells me the particular smoke detector's sensitivity value. Most AHJ's require a record of this information in addition to each smoke detector falling within proper sensitivity range per manufactuer's reccomendations. In this clip, you can see the 2098-9201 smoke detector gave a final value falling with the device's specified range of 1.5-3.6% obscuration. As for addressable systems with addressable smoke's, real-time sensitivity is generally accessable for download at the panel. FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER: https://twitter.com/safetech0415

VESDA Air Sampling System Test/Demo
 
06:18
Field demo of a VESDA Xtralis air aspirating smoke detection system in a large data center. System is interfaced with the main 4100ES network. While its operation is detailed in the video, the overall premise of VESDA is early smoke detection in areas where it counts, i.e. high dollar tech appliances/servers.

Fire Alarm Test #36
 
13:20
Test of a Simplex 4002 system in an old behavioral health facility now used as an activity venue/conference center. The pull stations seen marked "FIRE PULL" were custom spec'd by the facility years ago so patients wouldn't pull the alarm. With the key, only certain staff had access. Also, I apologize if I sound out of breath in spots as prior to this, I was running up & down stairs numerous times helping the sprinkler guy who was there with me.

Fire Alarm Test #50
 
14:09
Test of a 4100U system in an industrial facility. Original panel was a 4100 classic which was later upgraded following various building expansions. Most of the original areas are equipped with mechanical horns whereas in the plant and production floors you have sirens which are all coded by the head end at a very low pitch as to keep a standard tone throughout the complex. Each section of the plant is covered by its own transponder. A few of those can be seen in this vid.

Test of a Simplex 4100 ES system in a hospital. Originally a 2120, this system is now very complex as it has been modified numerous times throughout the years as new additions were added or renovated. Special note: This system is NOT in walk test. My partner was at the system's TrueSite computer silencing every 10 seconds or so as to not cause too much of a disturbance to occupants while testing.

Fire Alarm Test #46

Testing what’s left of a 4002 system at a local college. Unfortunately, the 4002 was replaced a few years back by another company with a much cheaper/less effective DMP panel. The panel itself along with its numerous sub-units & battery housings aren’t even worthy of being shown in this vid. Nevertheless, Simplex regained the contract and most of this system has been saved from further de-construction. The various electronic horns heard in areas were in adjacent newer wings.

Test & panel demo of a EST Quickstart system with my coworker setting off devices throughout the building. These panels definatly live up to their reputation. That being cheap... As you can tell, each time I would hit reset many devices would't clear as i've seen components to these systems at times notorious for re-alarming and not returning to a normal state after a long period of time. Furthermore, generate cause for programming issues if a device were to fail. FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER: https://twitter.com/safetech0415

**Update to this video: I've noticed many comments regarding the sound of the alarms. While the power output/sync on the panel may have a slight effect please note all devices were in compliance. This is a very noisy facility in which sound carries. The echo inside is the primary reason for the seemingly odd difference in sound.

Facility has been added onto through the years with different wings & outer buildings connected via monitor ZAM. **Special note: The test in this video was strictly for purposes of signal testing. All pull stations were functionally tested 6 months prior and at other times during a recent project. Therefore, keep that in mind before commenting about how I should pull each station prior to opening. Thanks. FOLLOW ME ON TWITTER: https://twitter.com/safetech0415
