BEFORE INSTALLING thoroughly read the system wiring and installation manuals and the Smoke Detector Application Guide which provides detailed informa on detector spacing placement zoning and special applications wiring must be installed in compliance with all applicable local codes and special requirements of the authority having jurisdiction using the proper size AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS and EBF Detector Bases Gauge inches 155 mm EBF inches 102 mm EB to 18 AWG 0.9 to 3.25 mm2 This manual should be left with the owner user of this equipment base Model EBF Figure 1A mounts directly to 31 2 inch and 4 inch boxes 4 inch square boxes with or without plaster rings and single boxes To mount remove the decorative ring by turning it in either direc to unhook the snaps then separate the ring from the base Install the base the box using the screws supplied with the junction box and the appropri mounting slots in the base Place the decorative ring on the base and rotate in either direction until it snaps into place base Model EB Figure 1B mounts to 31 2 inch octagon boxes square boxes with plaster rings and European boxes with 50 60 and mm screw spacing Install the base on the box using the screws supplied the junction box and the appropriate mounting slots in the base 1A EBF 6 INCH MOUNTING BASE 1B EB 4 INCH MOUNTING BASE Ohio Avenue St Charles Illinois 60174 Fax 630.377.6495 conductors used to connect smoke detectors to control panels and acces devices should be color coded to reduce the likelihood of wiring errors connections can prevent a system from responding properly in the of a fire For signal wiring the wiring between interconnected detec it is recommended that the wire be no smaller than AWG 18 However screws and clamping plate in the base can accommodate wire sizes up AWG 12 If shielded cable is used the shield connection to and from the must be continuous by using wire nuts crimping or soldering as for a reliable connection Figure 2 for proper base wiring Make electrical connections by stripping 3 8 of an inch 10 mm of insulation from the end of the wire use strip molded in base sliding the bare end of the wire under the clamping and tightening the clamping plate screw Do not loop the wire under the plate The wiring of the detector base should be checked before the heads are installed in them The wiring should be checked for conti and polarity in the base and dielectric tests should be performed The includes a space for recording the zone address and type of detector installed This information is important to set the address of the detector that will later be plugged into the base and to verify the type required that location 2 WIRING THE BASES REMOTE ANNUNCIATOR 3 3 DEFINITIONS SLC in out RETURN LOOP SLC in out FEATURE detector base also includes an optional tamperproof feature that when prevents removal of the detector without the use of a tool To ac this feature simply break off the tab on the lever on the detector base in Figure 3A and install the detector To remove the detector from the once the tamperproof feature has been activated place a small bladed into the small hole on the side of the base and push the plastic see Figure 3B This will allow the detector to be rotated counterclock for removal The tamperproof feature may be defeated by breaking and the plastic lever from the base however this prevents the feature being used again 3A ANNUNCIATOR RA100Z remote annunciator is connected between terminals 3 and 4 using the lug terminal packed with the remote annunciator The spade lug termi is connected to the base terminal as shown in Figure 4 It is not acceptable have three stripped wires under the same wiring terminal unless they are by a washer or equivalent means The spade lug supplied with the RA100Z is considered acceptable See Figure 2 for proper installation 4 WIRE SCREWDRIVER HERE REMOVE DETECTOR WITH SPADE LUG 3B OFF TIP OF LEVER ACTIVATE TAMPER PROOF refer to insert for the Limitations of Fire Alarm Systems System Sensor 03 11
