The System Sensor 5623 135°F Fixed Temp, Dual-Circuit Mechanical Heat Detector
SensorÃ‚™s 5600 series mechanical heat detectors offer a low-cost means
for property protection against fire and for non-life-safety
installations where smoke detectors are inappropriate.
series offers a full-line of configurations to accommodate a broad range
of applications. Both single- and dual-circuit models are available for
low- and high-temperature ratings with either fixed temperature or
combination fixed temperature/rate-of-rise (ROR) activation. The ROR
element of the fixed/ROR models is restorable to accommodate
To satisfy a variety of installation needs, the
5600 series easily mounts to single-gang and octagonal back boxes. And
these models accommodate four-square back boxes, when used with a square
to round plaster ring. The reversible mounting bracket permits both
flush- and surface-mount back box installations.
The 5600 series
provides clear markings on the exterior of the unit to ensure that the
proper detector is being used. Alphanumeric characters identify the
activation method, as well as the temperature rating, in Fahrenheit and
Celsius degrees. Fixed temperature models are identified FX, while
combination fixed/rate-of-rise units are marked FX/ROR. The 5600 series
also provides a post-activation indicator in the form of a collector.
When the detector is activated, the collector drops from the unit,
making it easy to identify the unit in alarm.
