Product Overview

The Ei164, Ei164RC and Ei164e were mains powered heat alarms with a lithium battery backup. Since all Ei160 series alarms have been discontinued, original manufacturer Ei Electronics (also known as Aico in the UK) has designed their new Ei3000 range of alarms to be fully backward compatible with the Ei160 series that it replaces, including the Ei164 heat alarm.

The new Ei3014 heat alarm is the perfect, recommended replacement for the Ei164. The new alarm can hard-wire interlink with any remaining Ei160 series alarms in your system, and fits directly onto your existing Ei160 base without any need to rewire. The heat sensor technology in the Ei3014 is designed for places where dust, humidity, and normal household fumes may trigger smoke alarms, such as kitchens, lofts, garages and workshops.

  • Power: 230V mains powered with back-up battery
  • Back-up Battery: Self-charging lifetime battery
  • Warranty: 5 year warranty
  • Suitable for garages, lofts, workshops and kitchens
  • Replacements also available for the Ei161 and Ei166 mains powered smoke alarm
  • AudioLINK technology allows users to extract real time data to their smart phone or tablet
  • Heat sensing thermistor detects high temperatures and is immune to nuisance alarms from everyday fumes
  • Fits onto your existing Ei164 alarm base (easi-fit base included to keep as a spare)
  • Memory feature – easy to identify an alarm that has previously sounded
  • CE and Kitemarked to BS 5446-2: 2003
  • Performs its own self-checks every 48 seconds ensuring the alarm is functioning correctly
  • Piercing 85dB warning alarm at 3 metres
  • Large combined test and silence button

The simple installation process of the Ei3014 replacement alarm removes the need for an electrician. However, power to all alarm circuits should be cut before removing and replacing any mains powered alarm.

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.

FAQs (2)
Q. How can we test the alarm to make sure it is working?
A.

The manufacturer's recommendation is to test the alarm by pressing the test button. This will simulate a heat input at the heat sensor. You can also test it with a hair dryer but make sure that the hairdryer is kept away at a suitable distance from the alarm. Do not attempt to test the alarm by using open fire or excessive heat as this may damage the unit.

Q. What type of electrical cable is required to carry the mains supply and trigger signal for the wired alarms?
A.

For the mains supply of the first unit a 2-core earth cable would be sufficient. For the connection between the alarms a 3-core earth cable would be required
