    Aico AIE146RC Details

    Aico EI146 Mains Optical Alarm with 9v Battery Backup Easi-Fit base 9V Alkaline Battery back up High performance optical chamber with integral insect screen Test/Hush button Advanced suppression and calibration technology Interconnectable to other Ei mains powered alarms Built in auto self test feature Low power cell warning Kitemarked to BS5446-1:2000 5 year guarantee Product Description The Ei146 is an Optical Smoke Alarm that runs on 230V AC mains power and has a 9V alkaline battery back up in the event of mains failure. The 9V battery will last for up to 4 years in standby mode and capable of powering the smoke detector for up to 2 years in the event of mains failure. The Ei146 is supplied with the Easi-Fit base that allows very quick and simple installation of the smoke alarm combined with simple detector head removal and replacement. The Easi-Fit base automatically connects both mains power and battery as the detector head slides on to the Easi-Fit base. The Ei146 has other advanced features such as high performance optical chambers fitted with integral insect screens to reduce the chances of false alarms as well as the ability to interconnect up to twelve alarms to allow all alarms to sound if just one of the interconnected alarms should be triggered. The Ei146 has built in circuitry to aid suppression of voltage transients and RF interference to further reduce the chances of false alarms under such conditions. Applications Designed for applications where the budget is a key consideration and there is no requirement for lithium power cell back-up the 140 Series provides an alkaline battery back-up instead of rechargeable cells. Further cost savings are possible through the use of Ei's innovative and totally unique Easi-fit technology as there is no need to purchase additional wiring enclosures mounting kits leads or connectors. In a field where time is money the fact that Easi-fit alarms are simpler and quicker to install ensures even greater savings.
