Wiring Explained

Mains powered Ei Electronics smoke and heat alarms require a 230V AC power supply and up to 12 alarms can be hardwire interlinked in one system.

To obtain a mains power supply, each alarm can be connected to the nearest lighting circuit using 2 core and earth cable with a separate, dedicated interlink cable connecting all alarms. However, if possible it is recommended that the alarms are all powered from a dedicated circuit from the distribution board using 3 core and earth cable for safety during maintenance, as the interlink cable will carry power from live alarms on other power circuits.

It replaced my old type that was out of date My only criticism was that the new version is a different shape so the whole unit had to be replaced which meant that I had to engage an electrician to fit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