Requirements for testing of smoke detectors vary by country, the common need is for a functional test where smoke, or simulated smoke, is introduced through the vents of the detector to the sensor.

Functional testing is required by all national standards around the world, including BS: 5839, DIN 14675 and NFPA 72. A functional test should be carried out using an appropriate test tool which is designed for purpose and will cause no damage to the detector under test.

There are now two products within the Solo range that allow functional testing of smoke detectors – both of which are approved by leading detector manufacturers:
