The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) provides testing, approval and certification programs to assure respirators used in the workplace meet the right standards. In an effort to keep workers safe, NIOSH programs are continually developing new knowledge on occupational health and safety and transferring this knowledge into practice. Flame testing is an important component of determining the challenges faced by workers and providing solutions.
In this video, the iCONN Systems iMATE i12 connector undergoes the flame test.
The direct flame test shows that even in direct contact with a flame, the assembly keeps the LED lit up. Additionally, when the flame is extinguished, the assembly cannot continue to glow after three seconds. These products need to be heat resistant, as they endure direct contact with flames when on a firefighter running into a burning building. This heat test is critical to firefighter safety because these products must have the ability to keep the equipment that saves their lives operational, heatproof and flame resistant.
iCONN Systems provides custom-designed, application-specific connectors and cable assemblies. We understand that off-the-shelf products can limit your designs, and that not all applications are the same.
