Belimo damper actuators and most of the valve actuators and sensors meet UL 2043 requirements. The National Electrical Code Section 300.22 (c) requires electrical devices in plenums to be tested to UL 2043 for low smoke generation. Underwriters Laboratories’ UL 2043 is the Standard for Fire Test for Heat and Visible Smoke Release for Discrete Products Installed in Air-Handling Spaces.
