Service Tools

To assist the installer and service personnel in locating heat actuated sections of the Protectowire Linear Heat Detector, or portions of the Detector which have been actuated, we offer two portable test instruments the APL-90 and MFL-92.

The CTI Calibration Kit is designed to calibrate each zone of Confirmed Temperature Initiation Linear Heat Detector and feed cable on the CTM -530 Module. This kit does not come standard when ordering the CTI Linear Heat Detector or the CTM-530 Module and is considered an add on item, though highly recommended for installers and facility managers.

APL-90 – Alarm Point Location Meter Adapter

Converts almost any digital multimeter into an alarm point location meter. Allows the general actuated (shorted) area of Digital PHSC Protectowire to be located by displaying a distance reading in feet or meters to the actuated point.

Compatibility
C Compatibile with CTI "Confirmed Temperature Initiation" Linear Heat Detectors
F Compatibile with Fiber Optic Linear Heat Detectors
D Compatibile with PHSC and PLR "Digital Linear Heat Detectors

MFL-92 – Manual Fault Locator System

Allows an actuated (shorted) point of Digital PHSC or CTI Detectors to be accurately located. A signal generator is connected across the detector. A receiver then monitors the signal by tracing along the detector run with a pick up. The audible signal is lost at and beyond the actuated point.

CTI Calibration Kit (Test Probe & Jumper)

Test probe and miniature jumper designed for feed cable and zone calibration. Should be used with the CTI Detector (CTI) only.

Applications in Action
Transportation
"Protectowire Linear Heat Detectors provide a rugged and versatile proximity fire detection option for the transportation industry. With a resistance to a variety of automotive fluids, solvents, and environmental elements, as well as a flexible design, Protectowire is an ideal choice for tight spaces and extended runs. The detector is both vibration and abrasion-resistant which allows it to be placed inside engine compartments. A long service life and easy annual testing means there is minimal downtime or disruptions. Our vast experience across a wide range of applications is why Protectowire is the preferred choice for smart transportation companies."
