SBI – Single Burning Item

Fire-testing system for determining the reaction of building products to fire when exposed to thermal attack by a single burning item, in accordance with EN 13823

The SBI from NETZSCH TAURUS Instruments GmbH is easy to operate, offering innovative control and data acquisition options in an intuitive format with ample user guidance. The high-resolution color touch display on the “SBI Control“ cabinet allows for measuring and control with the integrated Single Board Computer, Windows operating system and SBI software. There is thus no longer any need for manual controls such as switches, controllers or buttons; the status of the testing system is clearly displayed and the systems prevents any critical operating errors. The storage, analysis and recording of all test data is handled entirely via the control unit. Well thought-out details along with the use of high-quality materials guarantee the SBI test system a long product life and a low degree of wear and tear.
