To meet local code and application requirements,
System Sensor offers standard 4" and 6" bases, as well as, specialty base designs including relay, isolator, sounder and low frequency sounder options for Select Series detectors.
The standard 4" and 6" bases offer a plug-in detector base intended for use in intelligent systems, with screw terminals provided for power (+ and -), and remote annunciator connections. Communication takes place over the power (+ and -) lines. The 4" base offers a compact design while the 6" base provides compatibility with a wider range of junction boxes.
The Select Series specialty bases support application driven requirements. The bases employ a separate mounting plate that installs on various junction box sizes to eliminate unsightly surface-mount boxes. The mounting plate enables pre-wiring of all connections to speed and simplify installation.
Relay bases (B224RB-WH/B224RB-IV) provide one form C contact relay for control of auxiliary functions, such as door closure and elevator recall. The relay can operate in two different modes (short and long delay). The activation time for the short delay is 60 ms to 100 ms, while the activation time for the long delay is 6 sec to 10 sec. A shunt with pin headers, located on the base PC board, is used to set the delay timing.
Isolator bases (B224BI-WH/B224BI-IV) allow the Signaling Line Circuit (SLC) loop to operate under fault conditions created from a short circuit preventing an entire communication loop from being disabled. The base isolates the section of the loop containing the short circuit from the remainder of the circuit and automatically restores when the fault is corrected.
The Select Series sounder and low frequency sounder bases are designed for new and existing dwelling unit applications. They offer maximum flexibility in installation, configuration, and operation to meet or exceed UL 268 and UL 464 requirements. The
Select Series low frequency sounder bases are designed to meet the NFPA 72 sleeping space requirement to produce a fundamental frequency of 520 Hz +/- 10% with a square wave or its equivalent. Studies show that a lower frequency, centered around 520 Hz, is the most ideal to wake sleeping occupants, even those with mild to severe hearing loss. The B200SR sounder and LF sounder bases (B200SR-WH/B200SR-IV/B200SR-LF-WH/B200SR-LF-IV) are fully compatible with existing B501BH-Series sounder base installations. The device enables users to select one of two B501-supported tones (ANSI Temporal 3 or Continuous) through a jumper. The B200S sounder and LF sounder bases (B200S-WH/B200S-IV/B200S-LF-WH/B200S-LF-IV) adopt the same address as the detector, but use a unique device type on the loop. The Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP) can use that address to command an individual sounder - or a group of sounders - to activate. The command set from the FACP can be tailored to multiple event-driven tone outputs allowing selection of volume (75 or 85 dBA), tone (ANSI Temporal 3, ANSI Temporal 4 or March Time) and group. In addition, some FACPs will enable custom tone patterns. The B200S series sounder bases recognize the System Sensor synchronization protocol. This enables it to be used as a component of the general evacuation signal - along with other System Sensor AV appliances - when connected to a power supply or FACP output capable of generating the System Sensor synchronization pulses.
