  • 2. 

    The VESDA-E has a new detection chamber called the flair chamber. The Flair chamber was built on Xtralis’ core competencies of Image processing, optics, interpretation of light and:

    • A.

      Video Transmission

    • B.

      Air Sampling

    • C.

      Electronics manufacturing

    • D.

      Particle Counting

    Correct Answer
    B. Air Sampling
    Explanation
    The correct answer is Air Sampling. The VESDA-E has a new detection chamber called the flair chamber, which utilizes air sampling as a method of detecting particles in the air. This chamber is built on Xtralis' core competencies of image processing, optics, and interpretation of light, but the crucial aspect of the chamber is its ability to sample the air and analyze it for any potential threats or hazards.

    Rate this question:

  • 3. 

    The VESDA-E has the greatest sensitivity range of any Xtralis air sampling smoke detector to date. The VESDA-E sensitivity range is:

    • A.

      0.0015-6.25%obs/ft (0.005-20%obs/m)

    • B.

      0.0003-6.25%obs/ft (0.001-20%obs/m)

    • C.

      0.008-6.25%obs/ft (0.025-20%obs/m)

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. 0.0003-6.25%obs/ft (0.001-20%obs/m)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 0.0003-6.25%obs/ft (0.001-20%obs/m). This is because the VESDA-E has the greatest sensitivity range among all Xtralis air sampling smoke detectors. The sensitivity range refers to the ability of the detector to detect smoke particles in the air. The wider the range, the more sensitive the detector is to detecting even small amounts of smoke. Therefore, the VESDA-E has the ability to detect smoke particles ranging from 0.0003%obs/ft to 6.25%obs/ft, or from 0.001%obs/m to 20%obs/m.

    Rate this question:

  • 4. 

    The VESDA-E Fire 1 Alarm Threshold can be more sensitive than the VLP Fire 1 Alarm Threshold by:

    • A.

      100 times

    • B.

      50 percent

    • C.

      25 Pascals

    • D.

      15 times

    Correct Answer
    D. 15 times
    Explanation
    The VESDA-E Fire 1 Alarm Threshold is 15 times more sensitive than the VLP Fire 1 Alarm Threshold. This means that the VESDA-E system can detect smoke or fire at a much lower concentration or pressure level compared to the VLP system. This increased sensitivity allows for earlier detection of potential fire hazards, providing more time for evacuation or intervention measures to be taken.

      25,000 sq. feet (2300 sq. meters)

    Correct Answer
    C. 20,000 sq. feet (2000 sq. meters)
    Explanation
    The maximum area a single VESDA-E detector can protect is 20,000 sq. feet (2000 sq. meters). This means that the detector is capable of covering an area of up to 20,000 sq. feet, providing effective smoke detection and early warning in case of fire. It is important to note that exceeding this maximum area may result in reduced detection capabilities and compromised safety.

    Rate this question:

    Together with the Flair smoke chamber and newly designed aspirator, the VESDA-E will allow for longer pipe runs compared to previous VESDA detectors. What is the maximum allowable aggregate pipe length for a single VESDA-E detector using a branched sample pipe network?

    • A.

      1312 feet (400 meters)

    • B.

      1500 feet (450 meters)

    • C.

      2624 feet (800 meters)

    • D.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. 2624 feet (800 meters)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 2624 feet (800 meters). The explanation for this is that the VESDA-E detector, along with the Flair smoke chamber and newly designed aspirator, allows for longer pipe runs compared to previous VESDA detectors. This means that the detector can cover a larger area with its sampling pipe network. Therefore, the maximum allowable aggregate pipe length for a single VESDA-E detector using a branched sample pipe network is 2624 feet (800 meters).

    Rate this question:

  • 14. 

    When mounting a VESDA-E detector to the wall a minimum of 2 inches (50mm) of space is required between the ceiling and the detector. If a Stax module is to be added to the top of the detector the minimum space between the detector and the ceiling shall be:

    • A.

      3 feet (1 Meter)

    • B.

      2 feet (60 cm)

    • C.

      1 foot (30 cm)

    • D.

      .5 foot (15 cm)

    Correct Answer
    C. 1 foot (30 cm)
    Explanation
    The correct answer is 1 foot (30 cm) because when a Stax module is added to the top of the detector, it requires additional space between the detector and the ceiling. Since the minimum space required between the ceiling and the detector without the Stax module is 2 inches (50mm), adding the Stax module would increase the required space. Therefore, the minimum space between the detector and the ceiling with the Stax module would be 1 foot (30 cm).
