RECOMMENDED LOCATIONS OF ALARMS 1.1 Locate an alarm for each separate sleeping area in the immediate vicinity of the bedrooms. Try to monitor the exit path as the bedrooms are usually farthest from an exit. If more than one sleeping area exit, locate additional alarms in each sleeping area in the immediate vicinity bedrooms. 1.2 Locate additional alarms to MONITOR any stairway as stairways act like chimneys for smoke and heat. 1.3 Locate at least one alarm on every floor level. 1.4 Locate an alarm in every room where a smoker sleeps. 1.5 Locate an alarm in every room where electrical appliances are operated (i.e. portable heaters or humidifiers). 1.6 Locate an alarm in every room where someone sleeps with the door closed. The closed door may prevent an alarm not located in that room from waking the sleeper. 1.7 Smoke, heat and other combustion products rise to the ceiling and spread horizontally. Mounting the alarm on the ceiling in the center of the room places it closest to all points in the room. Ceiling mounting is preferred in ordinary residential construction. 1.8 For mobile home installation select location carefully to avoid thermal barrier that may form at the ceiling. For more details see Mobile Home Installation (Section 2). 1.9 When mounting alarms on the ceiling locate it at least 300mm away from the side wall and 300mm away from any corner. (see diagram) 1.10 When mounting alarms on a wall, use the inside wall. The recommended position is between 300mm and 500mm off the ceiling. (see diagram) NOTE: The performance of smoke alarms mounted on walls is unpredictable and this mounting position is not recommended when ceiling mounting can be implemented. 1 _V1:_ :42 PM Page RECOMMENDED LOCATIONS OF ALARMS 1.11 When mounting the alarm at the apex of a sloping ceiling it should be located at least 500mm away from the apex but should not exceed 1500mm (see diagram) Locate smoke alarm at both ends of a bedroom hallway or large room if the hallway or room is more than 9m long Do not locate smoke alarms in kitchen areas due to potential nuisance alarms from cooking fumes. INSTALLATION OF SMOKE ALARM IMPORTANT: INCORRECT ORIENTATION OF SMOKE ALARM MAY DECREASE OPERATIONAL EFFECTIVENESS 2 _V1:_ :42 PM Page 3 2. MOBILE HOME INSTALLATION 2.1 Modern mobile homes have been designed and insulated to be energy efficient. Install smoke alarms as recommended (refer to RECOMMENDED LOCATIONS). 2.2 In older mobile homes that are not well insulated compared to present standards, extreme heat or cold can be transferred from the outside through poorly insulated walls and roof. This may create a thermal barrier which can prevent smoke from reaching a smoke alarm mounted on the ceiling. In such units, install smoke alarm on inside partition between 300mm and 500mm from the ceiling. 2.3 If you are not sure about the insulation in your mobile home, or if you notice the walls and ceilings are either hot or cold, install alarm on an inside wall. For minimum protection, install one alarm close to the bedrooms. For additional protection, see SINGLE FLOOR PLAN. NOTE:TEST YOUR SMOKE ALARM OPERATION AFTER MOBILE HOME VEHICLE HAS BEEN IN STORAGE, BEFORE EACH TRIP AND AT LEAST ONCE WEEK DURING USE. 3. AVOID THESE LOCATIONS 3.1 Do not locate your alarm in the garage - products of combustion are present when you start your automobile. Use Lifesaver Heat Alarm in this location. 3.2 Do not locate your alarm in front of forced air supply ducts used for heating and air conditioning and other high air flow areas. 3.3 Do not locate your alarm less than 500mm from the peak of an A frame type ceiling. 3.4 Do not locate your alarm in areas where temperatures may fall below 5 C or rise above 45 C, or in humidity higher than 85% as these conditions may reduce battery life. 3 _V1:_ :42 PM Page 4 3. AVOID THESE LOCATIONS 3.5 Avoid dusty areas, dust particles may cause smoke alarm to false alarm or fail to alarm. Use Lifesaver Heat Alarm in this location to avoid false alarms. 3.6 Avoid very humid areas or near a bathroom, moisture can cause false alarm. 3.7 Avoid insect-infested areas. 3.8 Do not locate alarm within 0.9m of the following: the door to a kitchen, the door to a bathroom containing a tub or shower, ceiling or whole house ventilating fans, or other high flow areas. 3.9 Avoid locating near fluorescent lights or other electrical equipment. Electronic magnetic interferences or noise may cause nuisance alarms or chirping Smoke alarms are not to be used with detector guards unless the combination (alarm and guard) has been evaluated and found suitable for that purpose. 4. FALSE ALARMS 4.1 This smoke alarm is designed to minimize false alarms. Smoking will not normally set off the alarm unless smoke is blown directly into the alarm. 4.2 Combustion particles from cooking may set off the alarm if the alarm is located close to the kitchen cooking surface. 4.3 Large quantities of combustion particles are generated from spills and overboil. 4.4 An alarm with a Hush Control device is preferable near a kitchen environment for this reason. 4.5 If the alarm does sound, check for fire first. If a fire is discovered, escape quickly and call the Fire Brigade. If no fire is present, check to see if one of the reasons listed above may have caused the alarm. 4 _V1:_ :42 PM Page 5 5. HOW TO REMOVE SMOKE ALARM FROM BASE PLATE 5.1 Look for SLIDE TO REMOVE. 5.2 Remove Tamper Locking Screw if installed. 5.3 Push firmly towards arrow until smoke alarm unhinges from base plate. 5.4 To re-install smoke alarm follow FIGURE 2 procedure 1 to 3. See page INSTALLATION WARNING: THIS SMOKE ALARM MUST BE INSTALLED BY QUALIFIED (LICENSED) ELECTRICIANS ONLY. 6.1 Wiring Instructions: In the interests of safety, this smoke alarm and all wiring must be installed by a licensed electrician in accordance with the relevant requirements of the SAA Wiring Rules - AS DO NOT connect this smoke alarm on the base plate without the presence of 240V mains power This Smoke Alarm can only interconnect with LIFESAVER Model 5000, 5800, 5800RL, 3000, 4800RL Smoke Alarms; Heat Alarm model HA240 and visual Signaling Device model SL240 and isolation relay model RK10A/9. Interconnection with other brands may cause damage or result in a shock or fire risk and void warranty Due to noise from electromagnetic interference, up to 24 units of smoke alarms and compatible products may be interconnected. 5 _V1:_ :42 PM Page 6 6. INSTALLATION There are five terminals in the supply terminal block, marked 9V, A, SW, N, LOOP. It is important that the alarm be wired correctly to ensure correct operation. Incorrect wiring to the Smoke Alarm will damage the unit and void the warranty A total maximum of 250 meters (820 feet) of wire can be used in interconnecting smoke alarms All final sub-circuit conductors including the signal conductor must be a minimum size of 1mm² with 250V grade insulation Interconnected Smoke Alarms must be connected to the same final subcircuit Do not use any wire that could later be confused with the normal house wires for the interconnect wire. For example, green/yellow earth wire Do not connect AC power wires to SW interconnect terminal. These will damage smoke alarms Do not connect the SW interconnect wire to any device, except the SW interconnect terminal of smoke alarm. Otherwise, smoke alarm will be damage Switch wire (SW) only can drive the RK10A/9 and smoke alarms Do not connect 9V wire to AC power or SW interconnect terminal.these may damage smoke alarms Smoke alarms should be interconnected only within the confines of a single family living unit. If smoke alarms are interconnected between different units, there may be excessive nuisance alarms. Residents may not be aware that smoke alarms are being tested or that it is a nuisance alarm caused by cooking, etc. 6 _V1:_ :42 PM Page 7 6.

INSTALLATION Note: For interconnection of smoke alarms to Fire Panel or Auxiliary devices, use only LIFESAVER Isolation Relay Model RK10A/ This Smoke Alarm can be interconnectable only with other LIFESAVER models of Smoke Alarms; whether it be of Ionisation or Photoelectric design. Interconnection with other brands may cause damage or result in a shock or fire risk When interconnected all Smoke Alarms will sound upon activation WARNING: This alarm cannot be operated from power derived from a square wave, modified square wave or modified sine wave inverter. These type of inverters are sometimes used to supply power to the structure in off grid installations, such as solar or wind derived power sources. These power sources produce high peak voltages that will damage the alarm PSA recommend the smoke alarms to be installed on its own subcircuit to avoid false alarms and nuisance chirping that may be caused by electromagnetic interferences from other electrical equipment. 6.2 Mounting Instructions: Separate Smoke Alarm from mounting base by sliding cover (in direction of arrow) with one hand on the back of the mounting base and one hand sliding Smoke Alarm(See Fig. 1) Connect supply cable to terminal block and fix terminal cover Align and slide smoke alarm up onto mounting base (Fig. 2) then slide in the reverse direction of arrow to ensure proper connection Switch on power and check the green light on alarm cover.

Other interconnected units may have activated the alarm. Check other smoke alarms or devices. HUSH button is pressed. Smoke alarm will silence approximately 30 seconds, during this period may chirp once. And then the alarm will automatically exit hush mode. Smoke alarm chirp every 40 Seconds. May indicate low battery status. Replace the battery. Fault Red light is SOLID If the red light is constantly solid for more than 15 minutes and there is no sign of alarms. Could mean a potential fault with the unit. Replace the alarm. _V1:_ :42 PM Page BATTERY INSTALLATION, REPLACEMENTAND TEST 8.1 Battery Installation The smoke alarm uses one 9V battery to automatically provide back-up power to the alarm if AC power fails. The battery will operate the alarm for approximately one to three months with AC power off The smoke alarm has a low battery indicator that will cause the unit to chirp and flash the Red LED at approximately 40 second intervals for a minimum of 7 days. Missing battery with main power connected will cause the unit to chirp and flash the Red LED at approximately 40 second intervals Replace battery when chirping occurs. To ensure proper operation, the battery should be replaced once a year To replace battery, remove alarm from mounting base(see section 6.2) and remove the battery from compartment. Replace the old battery with a new one USE ONLY THE FOLLOWING 9-VOLT ALKALINE BATTERIES FOR REPLACEMENT: EVEREADY/ENERGIZER 522 DURACELL MN1604, MX1604 These batteries can be purchased at your local retail outlet or supermarket. Australia Patent S/N Caution: Use only specified batteries. Use of different battery RED BATTERY LEVER may have a detrimental effect on operation or may Australia Patent S/N cause the battery to explode resulting in injury or fire. 13 _V1:_ :42 PM Page BATTERY INSTALLATION, REPLACEMENTAND TEST USE ONLY BATTERIES SPECIFIED ON THE LABEL Fold Red Battery Lever down into compartment with fresh replacement battery. If the Red Battery Lever is not held down in the battery compartment by the battery, the smoke alarm will not close and will not be operational. Battery can only be inserted in one direction, ensure polarity is correct. WARNING: Use of inferior batteries or incorrect types may cause a malfunction of the alarm. When replacing the battery and on reconnection of the detector to the base plate, make sure that the detector is fully connected and flush with the base plate. Verify that the Green LED is ON after reinstalling the alarm on the base plate. 8.2 Battery Test: Switch off mains power. The Green LED on the smoke alarm will be OFF Test alarm by pressing on the Test Button for a few seconds. This should sound the alarm If the battery module has a fault, the alarm will chirp every 40 seconds Watch the Red LED for about 40 seconds. It should flash at least once Switch on mains power only when smoke alarm passes the above tests. The Green LED on the smoke alarm will come ON. NOTE: NO USER REPLACEABLE PARTS INSIDE. NOTE: WEEKLY TESTING IS RECOMMENDED! 14 _V1:_ :42 PM Page V TERMINAL AND REMOTE TEST & HUSH WARNING: THIS TERMINAL IS NOT ISOLATED FROM THE MAINS SUPPLY V TERMINAL This first terminal (Yellow) has a 9Vdc positive output and can be used for the following applications: As an output to operate smoke alarm as an early warning indicator system. The 9V terminal in this smoke alarm is intended for use with a security/fire alarm panel where a signal from that panel can be used to activate a single Smoke Alarm or interconnected Smoke Alarms to alert residents/occupants that an alarm has been activated elsewhere and there may be cause to evacuate the area. The diagram below shows the 9V terminal and the Signal terminal, marked SW, connected to the N/O (normally open) contacts of a suitable relay, the coil of which when energized from an extra-low voltage signal from an alarm panel, closes the contacts thereby activating the Smoke Alarm(s). This can be an Early Warning Indicator System. Note: The presence of an audible sound from the smoke alarm and the absence of a flashing RED LED in the smoke alarm(s), means the smoke alarm(s) have been activated externally. It is an Early Warning Indicator. However, check also for the presence of fire or smoke in the vicinity of your dwellings. If there is fire, follow actions in Section 15. It is essential that the relay and associated base must be of a type providing effective isolation between the coil and contacts (having an isolation voltage [Dielectric Strength] of 4kV and creep/clearance distances of no less than 8mm between the coil and contacts). We recommend using an OMRON Relay Type G2R-2-SN and Base Type 17X5W which meet the necessary isolation requirements. The use of an unsuitable relay and base could also lead to an electric shock risk. The wiring between the Smoke Alarm and the relay must be installed in accordance with the relevant requirements of the SAA Wiring Rules, AS3000, for low voltage (240V) conductors. 15 _V1:_ :42 PM Page V TERMINAL AND REMOTE TEST & HUSH Wiring Instruction Sh
