Aico expands range of multi-sensor fire alarms with Ei660i and Ei660iRF

Aico has expanded its 600 Series of multi-sensor fire alarms with the Ei660i and Ei660iRF battery-powered variants.

Aico-MultisensorEi660-22The new additions are said to boast all of the same benefits as the rest of the 600 Series, but in a self-contained battery-powered unit. They were developed to meet demand for battery-powered multi-sensor fire alarms within the range, the company explains.

The products are a complementary addition to the multi-sensors within Aico’s mains-powered 3000 Series, and include the same heat and optical smoke sensors to offer ‘total fire protection’, with an ‘increased resistance to false alarms’.

Michael Wright, Product Development Manager at Aico comments: “Our new Ei660i and Ei660iRF models continue our innovation of multi-sensor alarms across our product range. The lithium battery-powered alarms complement our existing 3000 Series mains-powered multi-sensor alarms and provide users with improved fire response and reduced risk of false alarms. We’re delighted to be able to launch the products as part of our new 600 Series and provide users with our proven and award-winning multi-sensor technology across both mains and battery-powered alarm series.”

The Ei660i is a stand-alone device, while the Ei660iRF includes built-in RadioLINK+ technology, offering wireless interconnection with compatible Aico alarms via radio frequency.

The new products also feature a built-in dust compensation technology. The self-monitoring dust compensation mechanism allows the alarm to tolerate up to twice as much dust contamination than a conventional optical alarm, claims Aico. The optical sensor chamber continually self-monitors minute changes in dust levels, automatically recalibrating the alarm’s trigger point when necessary to reduce false alarms.

Both the Ei660i and Ei660iRF also include Aico’s AudioLINK+ technology, to get real-time data directly from the alarm head via a mobile app, reporting on information such as activations, sensor status and record of testing.
