1 Auxiliary and end-of-line relays ESL 500n Series C. UL.. LISTED. US Auxiliary relays are form C and operate at 1A @ 30 VDC to allow for the addition of auxiliary notification devices to the Smoke Detector Smoke loops. Products with an R in the suffix signify the auxiliary relay feature. An end-of-line relay operates as a power supervision relay and Installation Instructions is normally energized and will release with the loss of power. Products with an E in the suffix signify the end-of-line feature. WARNING. This document is intended for licensed electricians/ Heat sensors alarm installers.

If the Description unit senses a temperature change it will alert the panel and The ESL 500n Series conventional 2-wire and 4-wire photoelectric signal an alarm independent of Smoke in the photoelectric Smoke detectors have intelligent software and digitally processed chamber.
3 The heat alarm output is on the alarm relay and the sensing capabilities. This intelligence coupled with the ESL patented Smoke alarm output is on the auxiliary relay. Models with an optical sensing chamber means the ESL 500n Series quickly and H in the suffix have an isolated heat sensor which is both rate- accurately detects Smoke . CleanMe compatible software, self- of-rise and fixed temperature. diagnostics, and dust (drift) compensation are standard in every unit. Convertible inputs The ESL 500n Series offers application flexibility with optional The 2-wire 500n Series can be converted using the ESL 505.

The 2-wire 500n Series detectors automatically determine if the Detector is connected to a 6/12V panel or a 12/24V panel. There are Living Room Bedroom no switches to set. Depending on the model, the Smoke Detector provides the following features: Dining Kitchen Bedroom CleanMe TV Room Room 1B.

This feature is available on the 500n . Series 2-wire detectors only. The 500n Series 2-wire detectors enable the CleanMe function by Bedroom recognizing voltage polarity at installation. If the + and - terminal connections are reversed, the CleanMe function is enabled. New 500n Series detectors are compatible on the same loop with previous 500 Series detectors if proper wiring is observed.

Bedroom Bedroom interrupted 85dBa tone when the Detector alarms or when the polarity is reversed. Sounder follows input voltage in reverse polarity. Living Dining Room Room In order for all sounders to activate when the panel alarms, the panel must reverse the supply voltage polarity to the loop on alarm. If the Basement panel does not implement polarity reversal, an ESL 405 Polarity Reversal Relay Module must be used.
