SB-46 1430014 Smoke Base - 46mA draw @ 24vdc Use with all Potter release panels. Not for use with PFC3000, 5000, 9000 series panels. Check other panel manufacturers compatibility listings
The SB Series is a 6" polarized base with annunciator output featuring a current limiting resistor, transient protection and a blocking diode to enhance annunciator function. The SB Series Smoke Detector base is designed specifically for use with the Potter Smoke Detector Models IS-24, PS-24 and PS-24H.
These detectors will not work without power. They must be properly connected into the signal initiating device circuit of a fire control panel that is listed as being compatible by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. These detectors will not sense fires which start where smoke does not reach the detector.
Fires on other building levels, within walls, on roofs , in chimneys, or on the other side of closed doors may not be detected.
Fires from explosions, improperly stored flammable liquids, escaping gas, arson or fires resulting from inadequate fire protection practices may not be detected.
Smoke detectors should be tested upon completion of installation and at least semi-annually thereafter, in accordance with the section of “Inspections, Tests, and Maintenance” in NFPA-72.
To Install the Detector: Insert the detector into the base, turn the detector clockwise until it locks, then tighten the vandal resistant allen screw.
Caution: These units must be installed and maintained in accordance with all applicable NFPA standards, local codes and any authority having jurisdiction. Please refer to NFPA- 72 Standards for Automatic Fire Detectors for installation guidelines, and testing procedures.
