Ademco's manual fire alarm stations are designed to be non-code single action devices for use in UL listed fire-alarm applications. The attractive die-cast aluminum-alloy housing meets ADA pull requirements and has been tested at Underwriter's Laboratory.
For ADA compliance, manual stations must be mounted less than 48o anove the floor for front wheelchair access and less than 54o above the floor for side wheelchair access.
A key reset feature on the 5140MPS-1 is designed for positive authorized resetting action. The key is designed to operate and match Ademco controls. The 5140MPS-1 utilizes a terminal block for secure terminations. The 5140MPS-2 is furnished with an Allen hex fitting and is equipped with wire leads.
Two alarm deterrant break tubes are supplied with each manual station; one tube is visible from the front and the spare is stored in a compartment within the unit.
Pulling the handle down causes the manual stations to latch in the down position and to close the normally open switch. The handle is restored manually by using the key to unlock the station and pivot the station forward for resetting the pull handle to its normal position. The crush tube is then inserted into the cavity the station assembly is then locked in the normal upright position.
The 5140MPS-1 and 5140MPS-2 manual stations are contructed of a durable die-cast aluminum-alloy and provide a neat and distinctive appearance. The housing is finished in red with white raised lettering and the "T-bar" handle is white with raised red lettering for enhanced visibility. The units are adaptable to both surface and semi-flush mounting configurations.
Mounting Semi-Flush Mount
Most semi-flush mount installations can be attached to a standard single-gang switch box using two 6-32 screws inserted through the slots that are centered on the unit's metal mounting plate. Semi-Flush Mount
Use Ademco Backbox model no. 5140MPS-BB for surface mount installations. The Backbox has four pre-drilled mounting holes of 0.187 inch diameter and conduit knockouts. Secure the Backbox to a wall with screws of size 8 or smaller. After the Backbox is in place, attach the conduit.
The housing is locked by using a key or Allen wrench lock. Unlock the housing by turning the key clockwise and swinging down the front of the housing to make the sheet metal mounting plate accessible. Mount the metal plate to the Backbox using the four 1/4" long 8-32 screws (suuplied). Dimensions: 4.75"H x 3.12"W x 2"D
