Series 65 Diode Base
The Series 65 Diode Base is designed for use with conventional systems that have manual call points and detector bases on the same circuit. The base is fitted with a schottky diode on the “L1 IN” and “L1 OUT” wiring terminals.Ã‚Â This base can only be used with compatible control equipment.
- Detector locking mechanism
- One way fit
- Easy to wire
- Contains an earth connector
- Continues to work during unauthorised removal of detectors
All detectors in the Series 65 range fit into Series 60 standard mounting bases. The bases are of 100mm diameter and have five terminals marked according to their function: Line 1 in, line 1 out, line 2 in and out, remote indicator negative, earth. Detectors are polarity insensitive, so that identification of positive and negative lines is only required if a remote LED is fitted. An earth connection is not required for either safety or correct operation of detectors. The earth terminal is provided for tidy termination of earthed conductors or cable screens and to maintain earth continuity where necessary. Bases have a wide interior diameter for ease of access to cables and terminals and there are two slots for fixing screws at a spacing of 51 to 69mm. Detectors fit into bases one way only and require clockwise rotation without push force to be plugged in. They can be locked into the base by a grub screw using a 1.5mm hexagonal driver.
