DESCRIPTION
The GEM-HEAT is a high-quality 135°F (57°C) Fixed temperature detector with Rate of Rise. It is compatible with the NAPCO
Express and Gemini series GEM-RECV Series supervised security receivers..
The GEM-HEAT incorporates circuitry which will transmit an
alarm signal upon an alarm condition, generate an hourly supervisory test signal to the receiver and also monitor and annunciate
low battery.
Coding switches are not required or used in the GEM-HEAT.
Each transmitter is assigned a unique identification code number
at the factory. The transmitter is powered by one 3 Volt Lithium
battery (supplied) which can power the unit for up to two years. If
the battery voltage drops below normal, a low-battery report will
be sent to the receiver with any status or alarm transmission. If a
low-battery condition is indicated, replace the battery.
OPERATION
Rate-of-Rise Feature: A temperature increase of 150F or more
per minute will result in an alarm transmission. When the rate-ofrise element alone has been activated, the detector is selfrestoring.
Fixed Temperature: If the temperature of the center disk rises to
the detector’s rated temperature (1350F / 57°C) an alarm transmission will result. When actuated by the fixed temperature
element, the detector is non restorable and must be replaced. The
need for replacement is indicated when the center disk has fallen
free. Order Chemetronics model 601 to replace detector.
When the GEM-HEAT detects an alarm as described above,
the integral transmitter will send an alarm signal to the receiver.
The alarm signal will be repeated every 10 seconds thereafter as
long as the alarm condition is present. A restore report will be sent
when the condition clears. Supervisory status reports are sent
from the GEM-SMK every hour.
NOT A LIFE SAFETY DEVICE - USE FOR PROPERTY PROTECTION ONLY
Step 1. Remove the mounting base.
Lift the GEM-HEAT from the base by turning the heat detector
counter-clockwise while holding the base stationary.
Step 2. Remove the circuit board
Remove the circuit board from the heat detector by removing
the 4 Phillips head screws and carefully lifting the circuit board
from the four mounting posts.
NOTE: The RF ID#
which appears on the
circuit board label
must be recorded in
order to map the
transmitter into the
system. (see Step 7)
RF ID# 7F545D5 : 7
.
Step 3. Install the battery
Observing polarity, install the supplied Duracell DL123A battery. Reattach the circuit board to the mounting posts using
the 4 Phillips head screws.
NOTE: If the Auto-Enroll
technique is to be used
to map the transmitter,
it must be done at the
point the battery is installed.
(Consult the control panel
installation instructions for
the Auto-Enroll procedure)
Step 4. Mounting the base to the ceiling
Select mounting location for detector on ceiling. Do not locate
in direct path of hot or cold air flow. Remove the protective
insert from the base. Use the two screws and anchors provided to attach the mounting plate to the wall or ceiling.
Reinstall the the protective
insert into the base.
NOTE: The mounting
plate may be attached
to a plastic single-gang
electrical outlet box.
Do not attach to
metallic outlet
boxes.

Step 5. Reinstall the GEM HEAT into the mounting plate.
Align the mounting screws with the mounting holes in the
base. Push down and turn clockwise until the GEM-HEAT
snaps into place.
Step 6. Map the GEM-HEAT Transmitter
Referring to the installation instructions for the control panel
and keypad in use, enter the following:
•
•
•
The zone to which the transmitter will be mapped.
Note: This zone must be programmed as a Fire Zone
as per the control panel installation instructions.
The 6-digit RF identification number / 1 digit checksum
number printed on the transmitter (include all numbers
and/or letters and leading zeros, if any);
The transmitter point number (“1”).
Step 7. Testing the system
Test system with unit mounted. If the system is monitored,
notify central station of impending test.
WARNINGS
The rate-of-rise feature may be tested by a quick application of
heat from any convenient source. A portable hair dryer is
recommended. However, do not apply heat which exceeds the
fixed temperature rating of the detector. If the fixed temperature is exceeded, the center disk of the detector will drop and
the detector must he replaced.
•
Apply the heat until the local alarm sounds. Verify that the
GEM-HEAT has triggered the correct zone and that the correct
report has been transmitted to central station. Wait a few
minutes and reset the fire circuit. Insure that the system
returns to a normal status.

HEAT DETECTORS ARE NOT LIFE SAFETY DEVICES:
USE FOR PROPERTY PROTECTION ONLY.
WHERE LIFE SAFETY IS REQUIRED, SMOKE
DETECTORS MUST ALSO BE USED.
BATTERY BACK-UP: HEAT DETECTORS SHOULD BE
ELECTRONICALLY SUPERVISED WITH BATTERY
BACKUP AT THE PANEL.
THE RATE-OF-RISE MECHANISM MAYBE SUBJECT
TO REDUCED SENSITIVITY OVER TIME. ANNUAL
TESTING OF THE RATE-OF-RISE OPERATION IS
RECOMMENDED.
REFER TO NFPA STANDARD 72 FOR APPLICATION
REQUIREMENTS, TESTING AND MAINTENANCE.
DO NOT PAINT THE GEM-HEAT.
NAPCO LIMITED WARRANTY
NAPCO SECURITY SYSTEMS, INC. (NAPCO) warrants its products to be free from
manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for thirty-six months following
the date of manufacture. NAPCO will, within said period, at its option, repair or
