Air Products and Controls Provides Remote Testing of Duct Smoke Detectors with MSR-50 Series
Advanced remote accessory allows range of functionality required for commercial applications
Pontiac, Michigan (April 8, 2008)- To provide a centralized control for testing and operation of a building’s duct smoke detection system, Air Products and Controls (APC) has introduced the MSR-50 Series of remote accessories for their duct smoke detectors. The UL Listed, MEA Accepted MSR-50s are compatible with APC detection products including all SM-, HS- and SL-Series duct smoke detectors.
Two models of the MSR-50 are available from APC; the MSR-50RM, which provides a hidden magnet test switch and a push button reset, and the MSR-50RK, which includes a key-operated detector test and reset. Both models are available as either a single gang remote indicator/ control or with the addition of a single gang strobe assembly.
The MSR-50 Series is an industry first with multi-color visual indicators that alert to detector Pilot, Trouble and Alarm conditions, and an added magnet test or key test/ reset at a price point much lower than that of the more robust MSR-100 Series accessories. The optional strobe assembly can simply be connected via a port included on all models and fits a standard double gang configuration.
The MSR-50 Series also feature a lever-operated quick-connect “No-Tools” four-position terminal block, which eliminates the terminal strip screws and wiring required by similar products, improving installation and maintenance time dramatically. All configurations are available with a choice of white, red or stainless steel cover plates and are compatible with any standard Decora style cover plate.
