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.

Easy to fit as a replacement and look good Bought 2 as replacements for 20 year old EI151TL. They covered over where the old alarms had been even though they were square so did not need masking plates. Work fine.

Seems OK but thankfully not activated In that frequent battery changes are not required , that is good and unit is more stylish. Otherwise OK. A keener price for multiple similar units would enable a change of the older units.
