The Ei414 provides an interface between an Ei Electronics RF system and an external device such as a panel, a warden call or telecare system. An RF system consists of Ei Electronics Alarms and accessory devices that are linked using a proprietary RF protocol. The Ei414 must be coded to the other RF devices in the system.
The Ei414 can be powered by either 230VAC or 11-30VDC and has a Lithium battery back-up which will provide power supply for up to 4 weeks in case of power failure.
The Ei414 decodes “Fire”, “CO” and “Fault” signals from the RF devices and activates the relevant relay.
The contact inputs (whether the voltage free or the DC voltage is used), when activated, will result in the Ei414 transmitting a wireless Alarm signal that will sound all the Alarms in the RF system
The 414 contains a dip switch which specifies whether it delivers a pulse signal or a continuous signal to the Fire and CO Relays. It also determines whether a hard-wired trigger input will activate the fire relay or not.
The Ei414 has a 3 position key switch. In the “off” position, the EI414 will not respond to any RF signals received. In the “on” position, the Ei414 will respond to any RF signal received (except Test). In the “test” position, the Ei414 will respond to a “button test” signal.
The Ei414 uses advanced radio transceiver technology with unique software coding to transmit, receive and repeat the RadioLINK RF protocol. This ensures a robust “mesh” of RF signals and reliable paths of communication. The house coding feature confines the RF communication to designated devices only, thereby avoiding the inadvertent activation of neighbouring alarm RF systems.
Important: Ei Electronics devices are not designed to fulfil the role of a critical component of a BS5839-1 system’s requirements such as sound pressure level in a property, or to form a necessary component of an evacuation or other life safety procedure.
