Sensitivity Tester Trade-In Program
Using detector testers to check the sensitivity of fire alarms is not only required by code but will also give you greater control over the sensitivity of the fire alarms you’re inspecting. SDi understands the importance of measuring the sensitivity of smoke detectors quickly, accurately and efficiently and offers one of the best detector sensitivity testers on the market with Trutest. With our Sensitivity Tester Trade-In Program, SDi invites users of competitive sensitivity testers to trade-in their tester in exchange $500 off the purchase of a new Trutest 801 OR a free re-calibration at the end of year one ($799 value). Similar to other testers on the market, Trutest is both UL listed and NFPA compliant.
Trutest combines functional and sensitivity testing in one convenient package by adding smoke aerosol to the detector’s sensing chamber. Some detector sensitivity testers need to test the detector multiple times to get a reading on whether the detector has drifted in sensitivity. This, in itself, does not give an accurate reading of how sensitive the detector truly is. These two-test detectors can only tell you how much the detector has drifted since the first test, but it will not tell you whether that means the sensitivity is wrong now or was wrong in the past. With only one test, Trutest lets users measure the sensitivity of smoke detectors quickly, accurately and efficiently.

Trutest is a high quality electronic test instrument and as such, regular calibration and servicing as well as care in use are essential. Regular
calibration ensures reliability, and continuing accuracy in use. It is recommended that this product be returned to an authorized service
center annually. After 5,000 tests the unit will automatically shut down until it has been serviced.
Trutest requires calibration by SDi’s Service Department annually or after 5,000 tests (whichever is sooner).
SDi will not be sending out reminders to re-calibrate the Trutest after one year. We recommend setting a reminder in your calendar.
If your Trutest reaches 5,000 tests, the unit will automatically shut down until it has been serviced for re-calibration.
