Honeywell has introduced the commissioning of a regulatory laboratory for testing fireplace panels that was assessed by UL, a world security science chief. The ability is claimed to be first-of-its form laboratory within the APAC area, and the second for Honeywell outdoors of america. Honeywell Expertise Options (HTS), the engineering and expertise growth arm of the corporate, operates and manages the lab.
Rajeev Bhandari, senior director of constructing applied sciences engineering, HTS mentioned, “Hearth panels are required to conform to UL 864, the usual for management models and equipment for fireplace alarm programs. Receiving UL approval of the HTS lab for distant witnessed testing signifies that UL assessed and certified the Honeywell laboratory for constant and competent operation of the laboratory, for UL to make use of that take a look at information in certification initiatives. This helps keep away from the logistics of transport and travelling and will help cut back product cycle time from six to 9 months to 4 months.”
To determine this laboratory, HTS’ present electromagnetic interference/electromagnetic compatibility and environmental laboratories have been calibrated in keeping with trade requirements and engineers obtained applicable UL coaching. The primary product to bear the UL witnessed testing is the ANN-80, a compact, backlit, 80-character LCD fireplace annunciator that mimics the fireplace alarm management panel (FACP) show. This can be adopted by a number of fireplace system initiatives from Honeywell’s Farenhyt, Morley and Gamewell FCI product portfolios.
