  • EMC performance to EMC 301489-3
  • 5 year guarantee

Product Description

The Ei168 RadioLINK Base transmits a radio frequency (RF) alarm signal when the unit attached to it senses fire. When it receives an RF signal from another Ei168 Base, the attached alarm will sound. It therefore eliminates the need to install long interconnect wires between all the alarms on different floors in different rooms.

The Ei168 RadioLINK Base is designed for use with the Easi Fit range of mains powered alarms. The Ei168 itself is also mains powered and has rechargeable lithium cells for back-up in the event of mains failure.

The Ei168 base will normally be wired to the nearest mains circuit in the ceiling (usually the lighting circuit). The alarm is then slid onto the base rather than to its mounting plate. As many as twelve units can be interconnected in this way

The RF range can be extensively improved by either adjusting the wire antenna or by converting the base into a 'repeater' i.e. re-transmission of the RF signals. The Ei168 has built in circuitry to aid suppression of voltage transients and RF interference.

Operation

  • In normal standby mode the amber indicator will light to indicate transmission of an RF signal
  • In code mode, the amber indicator will flash to indicate the number of other RF alarms that have been 'learned' in the system
  • The red indicator on the alarm attached to the Ei168 Base will flash rapidly to show an alarm condition for the smoke detector
  • The amber light will flash every 10 seconds to indicate that the battery back up is depleted

Applications

The Ei168 RadioLINK Base transmits a Radio Frequency (RF) alarm signal when the unit attached to it senses fire. When it receives an RF alarm signal from another Ei168 Base, the attached smoke or heat alarm will sound. It therefore eliminates the need to run long interconnect wires between all the smoke alarms on different floors and in different rooms.

It is designed for use with the EasiFit range of Mains Powered Smoke/Heat Alarms. The RadioLINK Base itself, is also mains powered and has rechargeable Lithium cells for back-up in the event of mains failure. The RadioLINK Base will normally be wired to the nearest mains circuit in the ceiling (usually the lighting circuit). The Smoke/Heat Alarm is then slid on to the RadioLINK Base rather than to its normal mounting plate. As many as 12 units can be interconnected in this way.
