SCORP 1001 Scorpion Point Head Smoke Detector Tester

SCORP 1001 Scorpion is a universal functional test solution for challenging-to-accessibility type smoke detectors. Scorpion is forever mounted adjacent to the detector it is designed to test and can be fitted as a retrofit or as part of a new installation. The smoke test is then run from a particular location each time when needed. Scorpion activates smoke detectors (ionization and optical/photoelectric technologies) from the world’s major manufacturers. These consist of detectors utilized in smoke activated fire doorway closing programs. A Scorpion set up uses its personal cabling – maintaining it different from the fire detection system.

How does it work?

A Scorpion Head Device is linked to an easily accessible Control Panel or Access Point, which is where the Service Engineer interfaces with the Scorpion System. The Control Panel or Accessibility Point can be positioned near the Fire panel or control and indicating gear, allowing the Engineer to check each the smoke activation from the Scorpion as effectively as its impact on the detector.

A Control Panel can handle up to 8 (eight) Scorpion Head Units situated up to one hundred meters away relying on cable kind used.

An Engineers Portable Controller, utilized in conjunction with an Access Point, provides an alternative solution for sites with only a little quantity of difficult-to-access detectors. In these cases, every Scorpion Head Unit is forever wired to an Access Point, again situated up to one hundred meters away dependent on cable kind utilized.

The technique is driven and activated via the Control Panel or Engineers portable Controller utilizing a detachable battery pack or battery baton, leaving the technique inert when not in use – stopping accidental or malicious activation.


  • Smoke generation tailored for functional testing of point type smoke detectors
  • Adjustable smoke time to suit characteristics of system under test
  • Clearing function enables quicker reset and reduced repeat alarms

Testing capacity

  • In excess of 240 tests (of 15 seconds) per Scorpion Head Unit

Suitable detector types

  • Optical / photoelectric
  • Ionization

Appropriate Stimulus

  • Benign particulate avoids material contamination
  • Consistent, repeatable stimulus from one test to the next
  • Approved by world-leading detector manufacturers


  • The only way to activate hard-to-access smoke detectors in accordance with  codes and standards and without the need to work in inaccessible situations
  • True functional testing using stimulus with wide smoke particle size, range, and characteristics to activate different detector technologies
  • Resolution of access issues avoids conflict with safety (access) and security rules

Pedigree & Approvals

Scorpion is designed and manufactured by the world’s leading (and only ISO 9001 registered) specialist manufacturer of fire detector test equipment.

Detectortesters work closely with detector manufacturers from around the globe and have done so for many years. Scorpion has been tested and proven to work with a number of manufacturers’ systems, with more being added continuously. Please contact us if you need confirmation of your requirements.
