General Description
The B501 is a plug in detector base intended for use in an
intelligent system with screw terminals provided for power
(+) and (–), and remote annunciator connections. The
communication takes place over the power (+) and (–)
lines.

Wiring Installation Guidelines (See Figure 2)
All wiring must be installed in compliance with the
National Electrical Code and the local authority having
jurisdiction. Proper wire gauges should be used. The conductors used to connect the smoke detectors to control
panels and accessory devices should be color-coded to prevent wiring mistakes. Improper connections can prevent a
system form responding properly in the event of a fire.
Wire Connections are made by simply stripping about 3⁄8”
of insulation from the end of the wire (use strip gauge
molded in base), sliding the bare end of the wire under the
clamping plate and tightening the clamping plate screw. Do
not loop the wire under the clamping plate.
The zone wiring of the detector base should be checked
before the detector heads are installed in them. The wiring
should be checked for continuity, polarity in the base, and
dielectric tests.
For signal wiring (the wiring between interconnected
detectors and modules), it is recommended that the wiring
be no smaller than 18 gauge (1.0 square mm). Wire sizes
up to 12 gauge wire (2.5 square mm) may be used with the
base. For best system performance, the power (+) and (–)
loop wires should be twisted pair or shielded cable
installed in separate grounded conduit to protect the loop
from extraneous electrical interference. If a cable shield is
provided, the shield connection to and from the base must
be continuous by using wire nuts, crimping, or soldering as
appropriate for a reliable connection.
D550-02-00
The base contains a label to write the zone, address, and
type of detector to be installed at that location. This information is used to set the address of the detector head that
will later be plugged into the base and to verify the type
required for that location.

Tamperproof Feature
NOTE: Do Not use the tamper-resistant capability if the
XR2 or XR2B Removal Tool will be used. This detector
base also includes an optional tamperproof feature that
when activated prevents removal of the detector without
the use of a tool.
Figure 4. Connection to remote annunciator terminal:
STRIPPED WIRE
To activate this feature, simply break off the tab on the
detector base shown in Figure 3A, and install the detector.
To remove the detector from the base once the tamperproof
feature has been activated, place a small-bladed screwdriver into the small hole on the side of the base and push the
plastic lever away from the detector head (see Figure 3B).
This will allow the detector to be rotated counterclockwise
for removal.
WIRE WITH
SPADE LUG
C0116-00
The tamperproof feature may be defeated by breaking and
removing the plastic lever from the base, however this prevents ever using the feature again.
Remote Annunciator (RA400)
The remote annunciator is connected between terminals 1
and 3 using the spade lug terminal packed with the remote
annunciator. The spade lug terminal is connected to the
base terminal as shown in Figure 4.
It is not acceptable to have three stripped wires under the
same wiring terminal unless they are separated by a washer or equivalent means. The spade lug supplied with the
model RA400 is considered an equivalent means. See
Figure 2 for proper installation.
