A Modern Solution to Evolving Smoke Safety Regulations
This whitepaper presents the new regulations governing smoke alarms, and it describes how ADI's smoke detection module is designed and tested to meet the new UL-217 8th Ed.
In the paper, you will find an in-depth description of the new regulations, as well as diagrams of the software and the data aspects of the CN-0537 smoke reference design ( rigorously tested to meet these new specifications). This is done by analyzing research fire data collected at the smoke testing facilities of Underwriters Laboratories (UL) and Intertek Group plc. These test facilities and the test procedures are in accordance with the UL 217 specifications for residential smoke alarms.
