Wiring Explained

The Ei160e series of smoke and heat alarms require a 230V AC mains power supply. Up to 12 alarms can be hard wire interlinked on one circuit.

To obtain a mains feed, the first alarm can be connected to the nearest lighting circuit using 2 core and earth cable. From this alarm, 3 core and earth cable is required for all additional alarms, which allows for the hard wire interlink to work. Please see the diagram below:-

Alternatively, the alarms can be hard wired using a dedicated circuit from the distribution board.

It replaced my old type that was out of date My only criticism was that the new version is a different shape so the whole unit had to be replaced which meant that I had to engage an electrician to fit which cost me an extra £40 pounds.

Very pleased with product but access for wiring has very limited space for six 1.5 mm cable loop. This item, and more i have ordered, are a replacment for the EI151TL and these had plenty of room for terminations.
