Installation and
Service Manual
The KL700 series of conventional detectors comprises:
KL700 Conventional point ionisation smoke detector
KL710 Conventional point rate of rise / fixed heat detector
KL731 Conventional point optical smoke detector
: Wiring diagram
Fire alarm initiating circuit;
Remote indicator device;
End-of-line device
Polarity must be observed when using remote indicators.
If not used with Kilsen control panels, it is recommended to use
a 300-ohm resistor in series with the 24 V supply to protect the
If not used with Kilsen control panels, the KL731 power supply
must be current-limited to 100mA.
Fire Sensor Placement and Spacing
Locate ceiling mounted smoke detectors near the center of the room
or hall whenever possible. Always place sensors a minimum of 100
mm from any wall. When the sensor is wall mounted, the top of the
detector should be 100-300 mm from the ceiling.
When more than one detector is used, use the spacing of 9 m as a
guide on smooth ceilings. Other spacing may be used depending on
ceiling height, high air movement, and other conditions or response
requirements. Local regulations should be observed at all times.
Where NOT To Place Sensors
One of the major causes of nuisance alarms is improper placement of
sensors. Avoid locating sensors:
Too close to kitchens or wood stoves where smoke can be
In garages and furnace rooms (due to exhaust fumes).
Too close to bathrooms. This can cause problems from steamy
baths or showers.
Where normal ambient air temperature can exceed 40°C, such
as attics.
Installing the Detector Head
To install a detector head, insert the head and rotate it clockwise until
it is properly aligned and "sets" into the base (Figure
further clockwise to lock it in place.
Consider the Locking Mechanism BEFORE Installation
Each KL700 Series detector head is equipped with a break-away
locking tab slot to prevent unauthorized removal of the detector head
). If needed, detectors may be locked in the base by
removing the tab before inserting them into the base. Inserting a
small screwdriver into the slot on the side of the base and pressing in
while simultaneously turning the detector head counterclockwise
), allows the head to be removed again.
After all connections are completed and the wiring is checked, apply
power to the system. There should not be an alarm. If there is,
determine whether a detector is activated or if there is a problem with
the wiring. If no alarm has occurred, check that there is power at the
last detector using a voltmeter.
Testing Each Detector
Test all smoke detectors in place annually, or according to local
regulations, to ensure smoke entry into the sensing chamber and
alarm response. If canned smoke (test aerosol) is used, carefully
follow the manufacturer's directions to avoid damage to the detector.
This is a simple go/no-go test and is not a reliable indication of
detector sensitivity. If it is successful, the LED will remain lit. Heat
detectors continuously sample for heat. Test heat sensors by using a
heat detector tester (Figure
away. The detector should go into alarm in less than 30 seconds. Be
careful not to melt plastics.

Detectors KL700 and KL710
No special maintenance required. Only qualified personnel should
carry out cleaning. Do not open the detector head.
Detector KL731
The following should be carried out by qualified personnel.
To clean the optical chamber
Remove the detector from the mounting base.
Remove the detector cover by pressing the catch with a
screwdriver, turning and lifting (Figure
Use a vacuum cleaner or compressed air to remove dust from
the chamber.
Replace detector cover and place detector into mounting base.
To replace the optical chamber
To avoid injury wear gloves when changing the
optical chamber.
Follow steps 1 and 2 above.
To remove optical chamber place thumb on the OUT mark of the
steel mesh area, hold the detector and pull firmly (Figure
To insert the new optical chamber align the hanging mesh (Figure
with its entry area and press down firmly to ensure chamber clips into
place (Figure
Once the optical chamber has been replaced the detector must be
calibrated with calibration unit KCT731 before it can be used.
Manuel d'installation et de
La série KL700 comprend les détecteurs suivants:
KL700 Détecteur de fumée ponctuels - ionique
KL710 Détecteur de chaleur ponctuels
KL731 Détecteur de fumée ponctuels - optique
Schéma de raccordement (voir figure
Premier détecteur;
Résistance fin de ligne.
Les têtes de détection sont insensibles à la polarité. Les
indicateurs d'action nécessitent la polarité correcte!
En cas d'utilisation d'une centrale non-Kilsen, il est recommandé
d'utiliser une résistance de 300 ohm en série avec l'alimentation
24V pour la protection de la centrale.
En cas d'utilisation d'une centrale non-Kilsen, l'alimentation du
KL731 doit être limitée à un courant de 100mA.
Installation du détecteur et emplacement
En général, les détecteurs sont montés au plafond et doivent être
installés au milieu de la pièce chaque fois que c'est possible. Les
détecteurs doivent être placés à plus de 100 mm d'un mur. Lorsque
le détecteur est installé sur un mur, le haut du détecteur doit se
trouver de 100 à 300 mm du plafond.
espacement tous les 9 m est requis pour des hauteurs normales de
plafond. D'autres espacements peuvent être choisis, dépendant en
cela de la hauteur du plafond, des turbulences d'air importantes ou
d'autres conditions d'environnement. Les règlements/normes locales
doivent dans tous les cas être observées.
Où ne pas placer les détecteurs de fumée
Une des principales causes de fausses alarmes provient du mauvais
placement des détecteurs. Il faut éviter de placer les détecteurs
Trop près de cuisines ou de fourneaux, c'est à dire, d'endroits
susceptibles de dégager de la fumée.
Les garages ou des pièces avec des sources de chaleur doivent
être évités en raison de la possibilité de présence de gaz
