The new 160e design is 18% slimmer when compared to the previous 160RC alarms, allowing them to be less obtrusive whilst maintaining the same ease-fit footprint, making it simple to upgrade from previous Aico alarms. 

Easy installation

The Aico160e series has been designed to offer simple upgrade and installation, in addition to higher performance fire and CO detection

Additional screw holes have been incorporated into the base to save on installation times – removing the need to drill extra holes. The holes themselves have been adapted to enable N° 8 Screws to be used, and beggar terminals have been incorporated to accommodate 1.5mm² cable.

Optical and Ionisation indicators have been imprinted on the alarm test buttons and colour coding added to the back to make it easier to check the right alarm type is being fitted.

Improved performance

Components within the alarms provide improved performance in response time and resistance to false alarms. 

The Ei164 Heat Alarm features a new thermistor allowing a faster alarm response when the trigger temperature is reached. The Ei66e Optical Alarm has a cylindrical sensor chamber encapsulated by a bonded protective mesh, which keeps out potential contaminates whilst allowing the free flow of smoke.

Wireless connectivity

With Aico’s RadioLINK wireless alarm interconnection, the 160e Series of alarms comes with a plug-in RadioLINK module negating the need for a separate RadioLINK base. The Ei100MRF RadioLINK module slots into the alarm and is automatically activated ready to be House Coded with the rest of the system.

With RadioLINK, only a single alarm in the system needs putting into Remote House Code mode, which signals to all other devices on the system that a new alarm/accessory needs adding. In addition, the RadioLINK has an enhanced self-monitoring function that recognises system tampering or alarm head removal. Each alarm system has the ability to identify with the strongest Radio Frequency (RF) signal and automatically pair with it. 

It can also send an ‘Alarm Removed’ signal when connected to an Ei414 Fire/CO Alarm Interface and third party device.

The new 160e Series includes Optical, Heat and Ionisation Alarm models. These mains powered alarms come with 10 year rechargeable Lithium cells to provide over six month’s back-up in the event of a mains failure. 

160e alarms are compatible with existing Aico alarms and accessories, enabling for full system upgrades or simple system expansion using the new models.
