Serial Number and Type Label
The smoke alarm detector comes with an interface
enabling an optional upgrade to various SeCa radiocontrolled fire-alarm systems (e.g. SeCa Power Line, SeCa
CC100PREMIUM…)
Relay Module
Interface for a relay module to connect to an external
sensor or coupling to an EIB etc.
For detailed information please consult the corresponding
manual.
Function Principle
The smoke alarm detector will identify a fire early,
detecting its smoke emission. It works according to the
scattered light principle (Tyndall-effect): the arrangement
of light emitters and receivers inside the measuring
chamber keep emitted light signals from hitting straight
into the receiver (optical cell). Should smoke enter inside
the box through the smoke inlet apertures the floating
smoke particles will scatter the light signal. Those
scattered light rays will hit the optical cell and be
transformed into an electric signal. The fire alarm will be
triggered. Functioning of smoke evaluation is constantly
checked. Potential nonconformities will be notified by
malfunction signals (acoustic signal or LED).
Maintenance and Support
Installation and maintenance of the devices have to
comply with DIN 14676 including a leastwise annual
maintenance, a visual inspection, a functional test as well
as a replacement, if indicated, of the battery. Please refer
also to description page 2.

Manual-RWMS-E-1001629, Edition 10012011
Do not use rechargeable batteries or power
supply units.
The smoke alarm detector generates a sharp,
piercing tone that might damage your sense of
hearing. Please keep a minimum distance of
50cm between smoke alarm detector and your
ear whilst testing the unit.
Do not paint the unit.
The smoke alarm detector is not to fit in rooms
below a temperature of -10oC or superior to
60oC.
The smoke alarm detector should not be
mounted onto environments like:
5.1.
spaces that generate strong emissions
of steam (e.g. kitchens, bathrooms,
lavatories)
5.2.
spaces near fireplaces and firesides
5.3.
vicinity of flues (e.g. near air condition
or circulated air systems)
5.4.
gables (e.g. pediments)
Please keep an installation distance of 50cm
minimum to light bulbs.
The smoke alarm detector is admitted for indoor
use only.

Assign place of installation at the ceiling. Take
into account the previous chapter “Please Note”.
Make use of the provided pins and screws to fix
the device to the ceiling; use for drilling (6mm
diameter) the device’s base as pattern. Please
pay attention to power lines. The device should
not get damaged by bore dust.
Attach the battery (attention to the poles) and
insert it into the designated case.
Place the device onto its base. Fix it by turning it
clockwise.
Check, if the LED flashes at intervals of 40s. This
indicates the normal operating mode.
Execute a performance test as described in the
chapter below.
Visual Verification and Performance Test

3.
Execute a visual verification of the smoke alarm
detector and check the smoke inlet apertures for
rough dirt and the entire device for mechanical
damage. If so, the device needs to be
exchanged.
Execute a functional analyse. Push the device’s
test button at least 1s.
If you get an acoustic signal the smoke detector
functions properly. If the acoustic signal fails to
appear, change the battery and repeat the test.
If again the detector does not produce a sound,
the detector is broken and needs to be replaced.

Take the smoke detector off, turning it anticlockwise.
Replace the used battery by a new one (attention
to the poles) and put it into the designated case.
Place the device onto the base and fix it by
turning it clockwise.
Check if the LED flashes at intervals of 40s. This
indicates the normal operating mode.
Execute a performance test as described in the
chapter above.

Manufacturer Warranty
You will receive the smoke alarm detector with a 2 year
manufacturer warranty as from date of purchase. This
warranty comprises rework and replacement with a device
at manufacturer’s option, if features are affected or not
met, due to material and assembling damages.
Compensation for consequential loss is excluded from any
kind of warranty. As far as this warranty clause does not
specify anything different, common warranty rules
according to our general terms and conditions will be
applied. Manufacturer warranty of the smoke detector is
limited to conventional operation according to this
operating manual.
Exempted from any kind of warranty is regular wear,
damages due to alteration and pollution, as well as
missing, inaccurate or unauthorized maintenance of the
device.
Appropriate Behaviour in Case of Fire
Emergency
Alarming: Immediately alert the fire brigade. Keep quiet
and reply explicitly to the questions you will receive:
Where is the seat of the fire located? Which objects are
burning? How many injured persons can be identified?
Who is calling? Wait for questions asked by the operations
control centre.
Rescuing: Save yourself as well as persons at risk and
get out of any hazard area. Keep to the ground if smoke
emission gets strong and compress a damp fabric to nose
and mouth. Do not use elevators. Shut doors and
windows to inhibit the propagation of fire and smoke. If
no escape out-of-doors is possible, look for a safe space,
shut the door, keep to the window and draw attention to
yourself. Seal off door gaps with damp fabrics or towels to
prevent smoke intrusion.
Fire Extinction: Try to put out the origin of the fire with
fire-fighting equipment at hand. Small seats of fire mostly
can be put out with a blanket. Never try to put out a chip
pan fire with water but cover the fire with a lid.
