New Relay Base From Apollo Aimed At Security Applications

A new low-profile 12 volt relay base for Apollo’s Series 65 conventional smoke and heat detectors can be used in security applications as well as in fire systems, depending on whether non-latching or latching mode is selected.

Apollo 12 volt relay base for Series 65 detectors

The new base incorporates a single-pole, voltage-free changeover contact for switching ancillary equipment. When the detector changes to the alarm state, the relay is energised, causing the contact to change state. In the latching mode the contact will remain in this condition until the detector is manually reset, but in the non-latching mode the contact automatically re-sets both itself and the detector.

Designed to operate over a voltage range of 10 volts to 15 volts, the relay base is operated by the detector and must therefore be fitted with a Series 65 smoke or heat detector to function.

In common with all other Series 65 bases, the relay base allows detectors to be easily fitted without using force. By using a ‘one way only’ fit, it also eliminates the possibility of fitting a detector incorrectly.

Apollo’s series 65 conventional detector range includes ionisation and integrating ionisation smoke detectors, optical smoke detectors and heat detectors. A selection of bases and relay bases, in addition to the new 12 volt relay base, is also available.
