does the 755RB has voltage free contacts?

Yes it has 2A 250v AC rated NO & NC voltage free segregated contacts.


 

What size relay is in the 755RB?

The 755RB has a 2A relay.

Some of the key features are:
  • Integral 2A Isolated voltage free changeover relay
  • Control/activate third party devices (i.e. lighting, security, or home automation systems)
  • Dry contact input for remote test/hush functions from a momentary switch
  • Suitable for use with 755PSMA2 and 755RLPSMA2 smoke alarms

For further information please visit https://www.clipsal.com/Trade/Products/ProductDetail?catno=755RB

Which type of switch should be used for the RemoteTest/Hush feature on the 755PSMA2 Smoke alarm?

Any 240V momentary switch, such as a 30MBP Bell Press Switch can be wired to either of the two new mounting bases 755RB or 755RFB up to 20m away. A relay can also be pulsed on momentarily via a security or home automation panel to activate the test/hush function. 

Can the Clipsal 755PFM have a remote switch fitted for test/Hush function?

Yes, but the optional mounting base 755RB (Mounting Base with Integrated 2A Relay and Remote Test/Hush Function ) or 755RFB (Mounting Base with Wireless Interconnect and Remote Test/Hush Function) must be added. The feature can be wired through any momentary switch. Once activated, normal operation resumes after about 10 minutes.
 

Can you use the 755RFB across circuits and phases?

Yes you can use the 755RFB across circuits and phases.

What is the “Global/Local” switch for on the rear of the 755PSMA2 smoke alarm?

This switch is specifically for use with the 755RB relay base only. It defines how the relay in the 755RB will operate. The smoke alarm can be configured so the relay in the base operates only when the local alarm is activated (Local switch position) or when any interconnected alarm activates (Global switch position). 

Which smoke alarm can be used with 755RB mounting base with integrated relay?

755RB relay base is suitable for use with 755PSMA2 and 755RLPSMA2 surface mount photoelectric smoke alarms.

What are the best SD100 and SD200 smoke alarm replacements?

The photoelectric Clipsal 755PSMA4 is the replacement for both, even though the SD100 was ionisation type as we no longer supply that type. There is also available a 755RLPSMA4 with a rechargeable lithium backup battery. All current smoke alarm models are compatible and inerconnectable with previous versions. Also available are the 755RFB mounting base with wireless interconnect, the 755RB mounting base with integrated relay, and the 755PFM flush mount.

What is the 755RFB used for?

The 755RFB is a replacement base for the 755PSMA2 which is used to interconnect wirelessly to other smoke alarms.

What is the RF range for 755RFB base?

RF Range (line of sight) will be: 100m free air, 30m indoors

Will 755RFB relay base work with 755PSMA?

Unfortunately not, 755RFB is not suitable for use with 755PSMA. It is suitable for use with 755PSMA2 and 755PSMA4.

When interconnecting 755PSMA2 smoke alarms and using the new 755RB base do all smoke alarms need to have the RB base to be tested remotely?

 

 
 
 
Only one 755RB base is required to test the interconnected smoke alarms. Hushing of smoke alarms in alarm state  can only be done remotely if the alarm that has triggered the event is the alarm with the 755RB base , If this is not the case then the alarms must be hushed manually from whichever 755 unit has caused the alarm initially.
This is to ensure that alarms are not Hushed remotely without full inspection of areas containing all interconnected smoke alarms which may be sounding due to a genuine issue but not seen from the remote location .

Can the 755RL be interconnected with the 755PSMA2?

The replacement would be the 755RLPSMA2. It can be interconnected with the 755RL, however that model smoke detector is quiet old and we would recomend checking the date on the unit as they need to be replaced every 10 years.

755RLPSMA2

Some of the key features are:

  • New look design with easy to use test/hush button
  • Sealed-in rechargeable lithium backup battery
  • Quality optical chamber with stainless steel insect screen
  • Easy installation and maintenance
  • Wired interconnect feature (up to 40 alarms)
  • Optional relay or wireless interconnect bases
  • Backwards compatible with 755PSMA and 755SMA mounting bases
  • Robust digital design
  • 240V
  • Photoelectric
For further information please visit https://www.clipsal.com/Trade/Products/ProductDetail?catno=755RLPSMA2

Can the 755RFB be used for both wired and wireless interconnection?

Yes, the Wireless base is capable of interconnecting 20 smoke alarms wirelessly using 755RFB bases and 40 smoke alarms using wired interconnect cables simultaneously. The 755RFB can be used as a wireless bridge between smoke alarms on different circuits or phases (that normally CAN NOT be connected together via conventional wired interconnect).

Will the 755RFB be able to operate with 5 bases and 5 x 755RLPSMA2's?

The 755RFB base will operate the same with a 755RLPSMA2 as it will with the 755PSMA2

Can the new 755PSMA2 smoke alarms be connected to home automation systems, such as C-Bus?

Yes, by using the 755RB optional relay base. The relay base can be connected to an auxiliary input type device such as a C-Bus bus coupler so that when the relay in the smoke alarm base operates, it triggers the system according to its programming. The system may then be programmed to send push notifications to a smart device or to trigger an event like enabling exit lighting, or triggering an “all lights on” function. The remote test/hush input on the 755RB can be connected to a relay on a home automation system (e.g. C-Bus Relay), so that the system can test/hush the smoke alarm as well. 

Is there a device that turns my lights on when my smoke alarm goes on?

Yes, if you have a 755PSMA2, you can use the 755RB Base which has a set of built in contacts or you can use a 756 Isolation unit which also carries out the same task.

Which smoke alarms will fit on 755RFB smoke alarm base with wireless interconnect?

755RFB is an optional accessory for  755PSMA2 or 755RLPSMA2 smoke alarms to offer wireless interlinking capabilities. The wireless base offers both wireless and wired connectivity as well as remote test hush through momentary pushbuttons. The base also includes a rechargeable backup battery so wireless interlinking will continue to operate during a mains power outage.

How to test the smoke alarm installed on a 755RFB base?

The procedure to test the smoke alarms on a 755RFB base is as follows:
TEST FUNCTION (WHEN NO SMOKE IS PRESENT)
• Test the LOCAL smoke alarm: Press and hold either the Remote Test button or the Local Test / Hush button and release within 4 seconds. Only the local smoke alarm will sound.
• Test the LINKED smoke alarms: Press and hold either the Remote Test button or the Local Test / Hush button for more than 5 seconds. The linked alarms will sound.

Note for wireless interconnection: After 5 seconds, a signal of 15 seconds duration is sent to all units. When the wireless linked smoke alarms detect the signal, they will sound until the signal is no longer transmitted. The wireless detection interval is 10 seconds.

Important information: After theTest / Hush button has been pressed, wait 10 minutes before any additional testing is conducted to avoid any false alarm responses as product has reduced sensitivity during this period.

What is the part number of the zone mask suitable for 753 and 753R?

753MASK is the part number of the zone mask suitable for 753 and 753R. The Clipsal 360° Infrascan Zone Mask is designed to block the unit from detecting motion in unwanted trip areas. This might include a smaller office space with an open doorway, where it is not desirable to activate lighting when people pass by the open door.

The Zone Mask incorporates a series of staged ‘tear-away’ sections, allowing full customization of the field of view. Tear away sections where you want detection to take place.
To fit the Zone Mask, remove the surround, and unclip the removable spacer. Clip the Zone Mask in place, and replace the surround.
