The Ei413 Panel Module provides an interface between an Ei Electronics RF system and a suitable security or fire panel system.
A RF system consists of Ei Electronics Smoke, Heat, CO Alarms and accessory devices that are linked using a proprietary RF protocol. The Ei413 must be House coded to the other RF devices in the system.
In addition to panels the Ei413 can also trigger modems, valves, magnetic door holders, etc.
The Ei413 requires an 11-30VDC power supply which is normally taken from the panel.
It decodes “Fire”, “CO” and “Fault” signals from the RF devices and activates the relevant relay. The relays are wired to input terminals on the panel.
The NO contact inputs (whether the voltage free or the DC voltage is used), when activated, will result in the Ei413 transmitting a RF Alarm signal that will sound all the Alarms in the RF system. These inputs are activated by an Alarm signal or a Test signal from the panel.
The Ei413 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.
