Smoke and Heat Detector, Conventional-MC Series

The MC Series low-profile plug-in detectors measure-up to the quality and performance standards that have made Security fire detection products the industry’s best price performance buy available today.  Meticulously engineered to deliver high-performance features, superb reliability, and unbeatable quality, the MC Series is a low-cost solution for conventional detection applications.

The MC Series distinguishes itself as a performance leader in its class with automatic compensation that dramatically reduces the risk of nuisance alarms caused by changes in temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure. While many comparable detectors routinely fall into alarm or trouble states when these conditions fluctuate, the MC Series detectors automatically compensates without compromising detection performance. The net result is a degree of reliability unparalleled among conventional detectors on the market today.

The installation and maintenance advantages of the MC Series add value to this detector throughout its service life. Its twist-and-lock design makes short work of installation and maintenance operations. A plastic breakout on the detector housing optionally prevents removal from the base except with a special tool.

A bright, easy-to-see LED on the detector glows steady when it is in alarm, thus eliminating much of the guesswork when responding to front-panel indications. If a detector is removed for any reason while the panel is in its normal state, a zone trouble condition will result. This ensures the integrity of the alarm system at all times.

Note: Smoke or heat detector base must be ordered separately.
