Developed by Ei Electronics and manufactured in Ireland, the heat detector comes with a 10 Year Lithium battery that is non-replaceable. The Heat Detector is perfect for kitchen use as compared to Smoke Detectors, it is activated by detecting intense heat from a fire. As smoke is really common in kitchens, the Heat Detector will be ideal as it will be less prone to a false alarm as compared to a Smoke Detector.
The Heat Detector will alarm when the temperature reaches 580 degrees celsius. It will automatically reset and silence the alarm when the temperature drops below this limit.
A red indicating LED will flash once every 40 seconds to show that the alarm is powered and it has performed an automatic power supply test. The built-in sounder will provide a minimum sound output of 85dB(A) @ 3m.
The alarm is not powered until it is twisted on the mounting base, thus avoiding battery power consumption during storage and prior to installation.
When used in a RadioLINK configuration, Ei603TYC heat alarms and other RadioLINK smoke alarms must be house-coded. This will avoid interference and interconnection with other RadioLINK systems.
Pressing and holding the “Test” button will check the sensor, electronics, and sound of the horn.
