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 alarms where applicable. However, if possible it is recommended that any alarms connected via interlink cable 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 (12)

Q. Please could you explain how the repeater function works on the Aico/Ei radio interlinked detectors.

A. Hello. The radioLINK repeater function allows the smoke alarm to "repeat" the radio frequency signal around obstructions. This stops the signal from becoming blocked and ensures that all interlinked alarms can be reached. This repeater function is built-in to the the Ei168RC radioLINK base (with Ei140, Ei160 or Ei2110 alarm), the Ei600 series of radio interlinked battery powered smoke and heat alarms as well as the Ei262 and Ei208WRF carbon monoxide alarms as standard. When house coded, the system works itself out which alarms are to act as repeaters - it's not something you set up yourself.

Q. Does this alarm conform to BS 5446 part 1 as recommended by the Fire Service?

A. BS 5446-1:2000 was withdrawn in 2008 and replaced by BS EN 14604:2005 to conform with European standards. These alarms are fully compliant with BS EN 14604:2005.

Q. Can the Ei600RF series be connected with a CO detector?

A. Yes, the Ei208WRF CO detector is suitable and we recommend that you also install a Ei412 locator switch to allow you to find out if an alarm was caused by CO gas or by a fire.

Q. What is the difference between Ei3100RF radio-interlinked smoke alarm series and the Ei600 series of radio-interlinked smoke alarms? Why does one cost much more than the other?

A. The EI600RF series are a later model and on top of all the features that the Ei3100RF offers, the series has the possibility to use the locate feature in the control switch, making the product more similar to a BS5839 part 6 Grade A alarm system. Additionally, the Ei600 series smoke alarms are offered with a true ten year life sealed lithium battery which makes the alarms acceptable in most circumstances as a BS5839 part 6 Grade D fire alarm system. This offers a substantial saving to customers, as it replaces the need for an electrician installing mains powered alarms.

Q. If the radio interlinking signal on one unit fails will the units still work as stand alone units.

A. Yes, should the radio interlinking signal fail the units will continue to sound independently should they detect a fire.

Q. Can a wireless router interfere with the radio interlinked alarms?

A. A wireless router is very unlikely to interfere with the signal of your radio interlinked alarms, as the RF signal of the smoke alarms is digitally coded.

Q. Do the radio interlinked units give out a constant signal all the time and does this decrease the battery life more than a non-interlinked alarm?

A. Yes, radio interlinked alarms are periodically sending and receiving signals from other units in the network and therefore the life of the battery is reduced. Units with alkaline batteries should have the batteries are changed annually [unless they are fitted with a sealed 10 year battery as eg in the Ei600RF series].

Q. Do I need to take out all the batteries in my radio-interlinked alarms before adding a new alarm into the system?

A. No, you do not need to remove all the batteries. Just simply press the house code button on all the units. Please ensure that the batteries have full power as this could render the house code process incomplete.

Q. Where more than one radio-interlinked battery operated smoke alarm is installed, if the battery in one alarm failed would the other alarms be affected?

A. If one alarm was to malfunction the other units would not be affected, if it was due to alarm failure. If the fault was with the radio-interlinking signal, then all alarms that are in the chain after the faulty alarm would be affected and they would not go off.

Q. Do the Ei600 series alarms need 230v or do they just use battery?

A. The Ei600 series of radio-interlinked alarms are completely battery operated. This means that they do not need to be wired up to the mains circuit. On the website, we offer the Ei600 series with a standard 9v battery or with a 10 year lithium longlife battery. The standard 9V batteries last approximately 12-18 months depending on how often the detectors are tested. The lithium battery units are sealed and last 10 years i.e. the full lifespan of the detector.

Q. Would the Ei600 series be suitable for installation in flats? The system needs to be grade A or grade D.

A. The Ei600 series does not conform to grades A & D, it conforms to grade F, relating to battery operated interlinking smoke detection. Both grade A and grade D systems relate to mains powered interlinking alarm systems. The alarms that would be suitable for your application are the Ei140 series and the Kidde Firex.

Q. What is the difference between an ionisation and an optical (photoelectrical) smoke alarm?

A. Ionisation smoke alarms detect fast flaming fires and are suitable for landings. Optical smoke alarms detect slow smouldering fires typical for burning soft furnishings. Optical alarms are suitable for living rooms and sleeping areas and are used near kitchens as they are less prone to false alarms. Please note that ionisation alarms contain a small amount of radioactivity.
