Ruskin: Classic Damper Inspector™ & Webinars


The Classic Ruskin Inspector™ is designed with the user in mind, providing an advanced tool that simplifies installation and commissioning of fire/smoke dampers.

The FSDPC panel operates on an embedded platform and utilizes solid state technology for optimum reliability. This commissioning guide outlines responsibilities for the electrical and installation contractors for 24/7/365 continuous monitoring and automated testing of fire/smoke dampers.

To support NFPA and fire code requirements for scheduled testing, all fire, smoke and combination fire/smoke dampers shall be wired to a monitoring and testing system (MTS) capable of continuously monitoring the health and status of all life safety devices within the network. The MTS shall have an automated testing feature with a 24 hour integrated time clock to facilitate staged testing during scheduled shut down events. The system shall also include a manual test feature to facilitate inspection of a single damper within the network. MTS shall be connected to a set of contacts at each device.

Contacts shall be linked directly to damper blades to ensure positive blade position. MTS shall be programmed and commissioned by a factory authorized commissioning agent following established ISO9001 standards.
