120V AC
Smoke Alarm
with 9V Battery
Back-up
Photoelectric alarms are generally more effective at detecting
slow, smoldering fires that smolder for hours before bursting into
flame. Sources of these fires may include cigarettes burning in
couches or bedding. Ionization alarms are generally more effec-
tive at detecting fast, flaming fires that consume combustible
materials rapidly and spread quickly. Sources of these fires may
include flammable liquids or paper burning in a waste container.
However, both types of alarms provide adequate detection of
both types of fires.
If you desire the earliest detection of both smoldering fires and
fast flaming fires, you should install smoke alarms that combine
both photoelectric and ionization sensing technologies in one
unit.
• This smoke alarm is powered by 120V AC (0.05 Amps, 60Hz) and a
9-volt battery back-up source. AC/DC smoke alarms offer added
protection in the event of a power failure or a drained battery.
• Unique power connector prevents interconnection with
incompatible smoke alarms or security systems.
• This smoke alarm may be interconnected with as many as 11 addi-
tional Firex model AD, ADC, PAD, FADC and FPAD smoke alarms,
and/or as many as 6 Firex model ADH heat alarms for a total of not
more than 18 interconnected devices.
• Optional tamper-resist feature can serve as a safeguard against
tampering.
• Unique "battery missing" lockout. The smoke alarm battery door
will not close if a battery is not in the battery pocket.
• Separate green and red LEDs indicate that the smoke alarm is
receiving AC power, working under normal operation, or in alarm.
• Loud alarm horn—85 decibels at 10 feet—sounds to alert you
to an emergency.
• This alarm incorporates the internationally recognized horn signal
for evacuation. During alarm mode, the horn produces three short
beeps followed by a 2 second pause and then repeats. This pat-
tern is somewhat different than the previous alarm sound, which
continually beeped.
• Test button checks smoke alarm operation.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
PLEASE READ AND SAVE THESE
!
• This smoke alarm requires constant 120-volt, AC power
AND a working 9-volt battery to operate properly. This
smoke alarm WILL NOT work if AC power is not connected or
has failed or been interrupted for any reason AND the battery is
removed, drained or improperly connected. DO NOT use any
other kind of battery except as specified in this manual. DO
NOT connect this smoke alarm to any other type of smoke
alarm or auxiliary device, except those listed in this manual.
• DO NOT remove or disconnect battery or turn off AC power to
quiet unwanted alarms. This will remove your protection. Open
windows or fan the air around smoke alarm to silence it.
• The Push-to-Test button accurately tests all smoke alarm
functions. DO NOT use any other test method. Test smoke
alarm weekly to ensure proper operation.
• This smoke alarm should be installed only by a licensed,
qualified electrician. Observe and follow all local and national
electrical and building codes for installation.
• This smoke alarm IS NOT designed to be the PRIMARY
protection for buildings that require complete fire alarm
systems. Buildings of this type include hotels, motels, dormito-
ries, hospitals, nursing homes, and group homes. This is true
even if they were once single family homes. However, this
