Product Discontinued

This product has now been discontinued and has been replaced by VESDA-E VEA Aspirating Smoke Detectors.

Please note: spares for EF-FT1 Aspirating Smoke Detectors are still available and part numbers can be found below.


The EF-FT15 is a unique 15 pipe high sensitivity air sampling smoke detection system, capable of sampling from up to 15 individual, identifiable areas or cabinets simultaneously. The system uses unobstrusive, easy to install 6mm O.D. microbore flexible tubing to transport smoke to the detector, enabling fast and efficient installation - particularly in difficult to access, aesthetic or architecturally restricted locations. Depending upon application, pipes can be left open-ended or terminated with high quality, attractive, flush chrome-plated or colour coded sampling points.

Unlike conventional air-sampling systems, the EF-FT15 uses an enhanced vacuum pump to draw air from the protected areas, making the system ideal for use in applications where high air-flows or differential pressures are present. The wide, dynamic range of the internal laser detector enables the product to be configured for use in many different environments at various levels of sensitivity.

Depending upon application, the product can be supplied with or without internal power supply and batteries, a variety of interface cards/relays for connection to external services, together with the option to control or monitor the system remotely using localised RS485 repeater stations and/or a TCP/IP link.

Additional Features

  • Localised central detector for ease of maintenance
  • Sampling pipes individually fault monitored
  • Early warning detection
  • Wide sensitivity range: 0.001 to 20% obscuration per metre
  • 4 programmable alarm thresholds per pipe/channel
