Product Discontinued

This product has now been discontinued and has been replaced by VESDA-E VEA Aspirating Smoke Detectors. Please note: spare parts for IFT-15 Aspirating Smoke Detectors are still available. Please contact Eurofyre for further information, servicing and training.


The IFT-15 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 IFT-15 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.


The ICAM IFT-15 is fully approved by VdS for safe use and installation in any European Union country and bears the CE mark to show that it complies with all the applicable Directives including the CPR, EMC and the Low Voltage Directive (LVD).
