Product Description

What is a RadioLINK base?

The Ei168RC RadioLINK Base is an easi-fit mounting plate with built-in RadioLINK technology. It provides wireless interconnect between alarms, i.e. when one alarm is triggered, all alarms in the system sound.

RadioLINK Technology

It is mains powered unit with a rechargeable lithium cell back-up, to be used instead of the easi-fit base to enable the alarms to have RadioLINK capabilities. The Ei168RC RadioLINK base is compatible with the 140RC Series alarms – Ei146RC, Ei144RC & Ei141RC.
The 160e Series and Multi-Sensor Fire Alarm use a RadioLINK Module, Ei100MRF, directly into the head of the alarm to gain RadioLINK+ capabilities instead of a base.
Once all the alarms have been installed the RadioLINK system is secured by a special House Coding function to safeguard the system from interference from other RF systems.

Interconnected Alarm System

The Ei168RC allows for easy expansion of an existing hard wired interconnected system. A mixed wired and wireless system is often referred to as a hybrid system. To set up a hybrid system, simply fit one Ei168RC base to an alarm in the existing alarm system and any new alarms with Ei168RC bases. Once installation is complete House Code the alarms together into a system. If any alarm, hard-wired or wireless, is now triggered it will sound all the alarms in the system.
