The Ei168RC RadioLINK Base is an easi-fit mounting plate with built-in RadioLINK. It provides wireless interconnect between alarms, i.e. when one alarm is triggered, all alarms in the system sound. It is mains powered unit with a rechargeable lithium cell back-up, to be used instead of the easi-fit base to enable the alarms to have RadioLINK capabilities. The Ei168RC RadioLINK base is compatible with the 140RC Series alarms – Ei146RC, Ei144RC & Ei141RC.
The 160e Series and Multi-Sensor Fire Alarm use a RadioLINK Module, Ei100MRF, directly into the head of the alarm to gain RadioLINK+ capabilities instead of a base.
Once all the alarms have been installed the RadioLINK system is secured by a special House Coding function to safeguard the system from interference from other RF systems.
The Ei168RC allows for easy expansion of an existing hard-wired interconnected system. A mixed wired and wireless system is often referred to as a hybrid system. To set a hybrid system up – Simply fit one Ei168RC base to an alarm in the existing alarms and any new alarms with Ei168RC bases. Once installation is complete House Code the alarms together into a system. If any alarm, hard-wired or wireless, is now triggered it will sound all the alarms in the system.
