This is the Aico Ei100C ionisation smoke alarm, a hardwired alarm with a dual ionisation chamber and a 85dB noise level. It operates on the principle that electrical current flowing between electrodes in the ionisation chamber is altered when smoke particles enters. It is sensitive to all domestic fire types, and is especially sensitive to fast flaming fires.
Ionisation alarms are triggered by light smoke particles from fast-burning materials like paper or wood and are an essential component to having full-home protection from fire hazards. They are particularly useful for installation in bedrooms as they will quickly detect if a material such as bedding has caught fire.
The alarm comes supplied with screw fixings and it is simple to install. The battery removed indicator is a very important feature: if the battery has been removed, a pop-up warning flag appears and it is not possible to replace the alarm cover until a new battery has been fitted.
The Aico Ei100C is fitted with a TEST button to facilitate frequent testing of the alarm. The sounder automatically stops sounding when smoke particles are no longer present in the chamber; this is useful in case of nuisance alarms from cooking fumes, and so on.
The 9V battery is included; when it nears the end of its life, the alarm will emit a short beep every 40 seconds to indicate that the battery needs to be replaced.
It is a low maintenance device, with an automatic ‘self-test’ that tests the smoke chamber and will bleep at regular intervals if any fault is detected. There is an automatic reset facility within the alarm that will return the alarm to its normal mode after smoke has cleared from the alarm sensor unit. The Aico Ei100C is quick both to react to fire and also to turn off its alarm when it is clear that any danger has passed.
This hardwired smoke alarm can be connected with up to 12 other 9V battery-powered Aico alarms, provided they also have the interconnect feature. Some of the Aico Alarms it can interconnect with are the Ei100CNP, Ei103C, Ei100TYC, and Ei3105TYC.
