Product Information

The Aico EI168RC RadioLINK Base saves time and money when installing a fire alarm system. Wiring Requirements are reduced and installation time decreased. The Ei168RC RadioLINK Base transmits a radio frequency (RF) alarm signal when the unit attached to it senses fire. When it receives an RF signal from another Ei168RC

Base, the attached alarm will sound. It therefore eliminates the need to install long interconnect wires between all the alarms on different floors in different rooms.

The Ei168RC RadioLINK Base is designed for use with the ‘RC’ range of Easi-fit mains powered alarms. The Ei168RC itself is also mains powered and has rechargeable Lithium cells for back-up in the event of mains failure.

The unit also has “multi-level repeater” transmission – the unit first receiving a signal, then re-transmitting the signal to other units. This provides multiple signal paths for a stronger RF system and can also increase the system range. The RF range can also be improved by adjusting the wire antenna.

Using the RadioLINK base you can install system of up to 20 devices and save on wiring & labour costs.

Customer Reviews

  • from Aberdeen Rating:4 stars

    Installed these and several smoke (Ei140RC) &heat (Ei603) detectors in a mixed wired and RadioLink system to be compliant with the new Scottish building regs that come in to effect next Feb. Incorporated the Ei450 Controller - makes testing, silencing much easier. Had the aico range recommended by a friend who’s electrician rated them the best. Product instructions very good. Picked up useful tip about avoiding locating detectors near fluorescent fittings. Installation and testing very straightforward consequently. Had minor issue getting one of these bases to House Code but got there after a couple of attempts. Bases could have done with more screw holes to enable greater chance of using existing ceiling fixing holes but again a minor inconvenience. So far so good in terms of performance and no unexpected alarms. Happy with my purchases. Time will tell if warrants an extra star rating.
