Mains Powered Smoke Alarms & Heat Alarms with Alkaline Back-up Battery - BRK 600 Series

Discontinued Product - No Compatible Replacement

Please Note: BRK have withdrawn from the European market and there is no compatible alternative that will fit into your existing system. Since it is not possible to interlink alarms from different manufacturers, new alarms will be needed throughout. The recommended replacement for the whole discontinued BRK 600MBX range is the Kidde Firex series. This will require an electrician to replace your old BRK bases for new Kidde bases.

Product Overview

The BRK 600MBX series of mains powered alarms are available with ionisation, optical or heat sensor and feature a 9V alkaline back-up battery. Kitemarked to the latest British Standards, these BRK mains powered alarms are suitable for installations complying to BS 5839-6 Grade D2 and can be hard wire interlinked to form a smoke alarm system. Once interlinked, if one alarm detects a fire, it sounds and triggers all other interlinked alarms to also sound.

  • 230V mains powered with 9V alkaline back-up battery (included)
  • Kitemarked to BS EN 14604 (smoke alarms) and BS 5446-2 (heat alarm)
  • 5 year manufacturer's warranty
  • Please note that BRK are no longer manufacturing new stock for the European Market and while the products will have a 2018 manufacturing date they still provide a full 10 year lifespan and full warranty cover from date of purchase
  • 690MBX and 660MBX include slimline twist-fit base suitable for flush mounting
  • 670MBX includes push-fit base suitable for flush mounting and surface trunking
  • Suitable for installations complying to BS 5839-6: 2019 Grade D2
  • Available in three versions:
    • Ionisation smoke alarm (670MBX) responds quickly to fast flaming fires - used in landing areas
    • Optical smoke alarm (660MBX) responds quickly to smouldering fires - used in bedrooms, living rooms and hallways
    • Heat alarm (690MBX) responds to rate of increase in room temperature - used in kitchens and garages
  • Test and Hush Button Feature (Heat alarms only have Test functionality)
  • Up to 12 alarms can be hard wire interlinked within a single system
  • Suitable replacement for DETA alarms:
    • DETA 1151 & 1111: BRK 670MBX Ionisation Alarm
    • DETA 1153 & 1113: BRK 660MBX Thermally Enhanced Optical Alarm
    • DETA 1155 & 1115: BRK 690MBX Heat Alarm
  • Please note: alarms are sold separately
  • Product warranty and life commences from date of purchase
  • This alarm is also suitable for the updated 2022 Scottish legislation for fire alarms in homes

Please note: the packaging may show a product code of 770MBX and include a push-fit base but the alarm itself is still a 670MBX, as shown on the sticker on the back of the alarm head, and it is still compatible with existing twist-fit bases.

Please note: for surface-mounted wiring such as trunking the base plate included with these alarms is not suitable; please see the BRK 700 series with push-fit base instead.

Awkward fitting because of plug size. I already had two smoke detectors fitted 20 years ago of the same manufacturer. The new ones didn't come with a back plate and so I had to adapt the existing one's to fit the new alarms. This was because the plug in on the new ones was considerably larger than the old ones, which made them difficult to fit.

Does the job The only demerit is that their white and my ceiling's white are very different whites. One oddity: The test button only tests this individual alarm's siren, not the others in the circuit. The others test the entire system. Thus it makes you wonder of there is a misconnection
