SMOKE ALARM FEATURES
This smoke alarm is powered by 120V AC 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 other Firex
model AD, ADC, PAD or FX1218 smoke alarms, and 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.
Models AD and ADC have a unique "battery missing" lockout. The smoke
alarm will not attach to the mounting bracket if a battery is not in the bat-
tery pocket.
Improperly connected or weak battery signal. The smoke alarm will
sound a short beep about once a minute if the battery is weak or improp-
erly connected.
Green and red LED indicator(s) show when the smoke alarm is receiving
AC power, working under normal operation, in alarm, or under false
alarm control.
Loud alarm horn—85 decibels at 10 feet—sounds to alert you of
an emergency.
This alarm incorporates the internationally recognized horn signal for
evacuation. During alarm mode, the horn produces three short beeps fol-
lowed by a 2 second pause and then repeats. This pattern is somewhat
different than the previous alarm sound, which continually beeped.
Test button checks smoke alarm operation. Models ADC and FADC also
feature a False Alarm Control™ which, when activated, quiets unwanted
alarms for up to 15 minutes.
Model FADC features a latching LED which keeps the initiating alarm Red
LED illuminated until manually reset.
