Fire testing system for measuring the heat release and smoke production during the flame spread test of vertically mounted bunched cables and insulated wires according to EN 50399 and IEC 60332-3



KBT Measuring and Control Unit

The innovative control and data acquisition of the KBT from TAURUS Instruments features easy operation and intuitive user guidance. Operation at the measuring and control cabinet “KBT Control“ with integrated Single Board Computer, operating system Windows 10 and the KBT 2016 software is carried out via high resolution color touch display. Therefore the manual controls such as switches, controllers and buttons are no longer needed and the condition of the testing system is clearly displayed and critical operating errors are prevented by the system. With the control unit all test data is completely stored, analyzed and recorded.

Well thought out details, combined with the use of high quality materials guarantee a long product life and a low degree of wear and tear of the KBT test system.
