Needle flame testing device NPG DIN EN 60695-11-5


  • Tests with a needle flame for evaluating fire hazard.

The device is used to evaluate the fire hazard by imitating the effect of small flames which can occur during faulty operation of devices and machines with a needle flame. The testing flame is the fire source to which a specimen is exposed for a defined period of time. The flame is confirmed by the testing arrangement and the calibration device. The temperature on the copper block is measured by a type K mineral-insulated metal-sheathed thermocouple (Class 1) under IEC 60584-2. The calibration device can automatically measure the time interval from 100°C to 700°C and determine the average value of three measurements. The calibration device does also have a digital and analog temperature output which can be used to determine the time intervals externally. The power supply is provided by an IEC-320 AC power cordset 100-230 VAC (50/60 Hz).
