Damper Controller Addresses NFPA Requirements
The Ruskin ADC105 addressable damper controller meets NFPA 80 and 105 life safety remote damper testing requirements. The ADC105 is an addressable module that works with SIMPLEX ES fire alarm panels. With the ADC105 connected to a SIMPLEX fire alarm system, it allows continuous monitoring and alarm capability if something should go wrong. The ADC105 allows for the periodic testing that is required in NFPA 80 and NFPA 105.
Ruskin has always been the leader with remote addressable life safety damper monitoring and testing equipment. Ruskin released its Validator system in 2006 and Inspector system in 2012. Now, the ADC105 works directly with the current or new SIMPLEX ES addressable fire alarm panel. Since the SIMPLEX ES fire alarm system is already part of a building's automation, adding the ADC105 to any smoke or combination fire smoke damper makes this a low-cost addressable controller, saving testing and maintenance costs.
The ADC105 works directly with SIMPLEX ES fire alarm panels required by building codes. Adding this simple addressable damper controller to a new facility or retrofitted building will reduce maintenance costs to test and maintain life safety dampers.
