Fire/CO alarm interface explained

Aico, fire alarm, carbon monoxide

A brochure from Aico explains how its Ei414 fire/carbon-monoxide alarm interface, which is very popular in the social-housing sector, works and provides an installation overview showing how simple it is to install the interface. It looks at the three most common safety systems to connect to — fire panels, telecare/warden call systems and sprinkler systems.

One of the most widespread uses of the Ei414 is to integrate a BS 5839 Part 6 fire-alarm system with a Part 1 panel-based system installed in communal areas of a property. The E414 can be used to maximise safety by ensuring that the communal alarm can be heard within each property, but without allowing alarms in individual flats to activate those in communal areas or within the homes of other tenants.
