System Sensor i3 sounder and relay smoke detectors apply the guiding principles of installation ease, intelligence, and instant inspection in a series of specialty conventional devices.
Installation ease. Throughout the i3 series, installation is simple with its installer-friendly base and plug-in design. The base accommodates a broad range of back box and direct mounting options and provides ample space for pre-wiring the device. To complete the installation, the i3 detector plugs into its base with a simple Stop Drop ’N Lock action.
Intelligence. To reduce the likelihood of nuisance alarms, all i3 detectors are equipped with both drift compensation and smoothing algorithms. These capabilities minimize both short- and long-term causes of nuisance alarms such as RF interference and dust accumulation. When connected to the C2W-MOD2A loop test/ maintenance module or an i3 Ready™ panel, 2-wire i3 detectors can generate a remote maintenance signal when in a maintenance or freeze trouble condition. To measure the sensitivity of any i3 detector, the CSENS-RDRA displays the reading, in terms of percent-per-foot obscuration, within seconds.
Instant inspection. The i3 line’s red and green LEDs simplify local status indication during power-up, standby, alarm, maintenance and freeze trouble conditions. When in alarm, i3 sounder models generate an 85 dB temporal tone. If connected to the CRRS-MODA reversing relay/synchronization module, all i3 sounders on the loop will activate when one detector is in alarm. Additionally, the CRRS-MODA synchronizes the output of all i3 sounders to ensure a clear audible signal.
Should the application call for differentiating between a local and a general alarm, the i3 line offers an isolated thermal model, which initiates a local alarm when smoke is detected, and a general alarm when the thermal sensor is activated.
