Ei168RC RadioLINK Alarm Base

The Ei168RC RadioLINK easifit base is designed to be used with the Ei140RC series Alarms to enable them to communicate wirelessly with other Ei Electronics RF devices.

  • RF Base for Ei140RC series
  • Interconnect up to 12 devices
  • Transmits, receives and repeats RF specific data
  • Uses mesh architecture and proprietary RadioLINK protocol
  • Unique House code feature
  • Easy to install

Compliant with Radio Equipment Directive 2014/53/EU

The Ei168RC is an Easi-fit mounting plate with built-in RadioLINK circuit compatible with the Ei140RC serie. It enables the Alarms to communicate wirelessly with other Ei Electronics RF devices, i.e. when one Alarm is triggered, all Alarms in the RF system sound.

It is mains powered with a rechargeable battery back-up with a visual low battery indicator.

The Ei168RC also supports remote Test, Silence and Locate messages coming from an Ei Electronics RF device.

The Ei168RC is a short range device using a transceiver 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 RF devices only, thereby avoiding the inadvertent activation of neighbouring Alarm RF systems.

The Ei168RC allows for easy expansion of an existing hard-wired interconnected system. Simply fit an Ei168RC to one of the existing Alarms and fit the additional Alarms with Ei168RC bases and house-code the RadioLINK Alarms into a system. If any Alarm, wired or wireless, is now triggered it will sound all the Alarms in the system. A mixed wired and wireless system is often referred to as a hybrid system.
