B300-6 System Sensor Plug-In Detector Base.

B300-6 System Sensor Standard, Relay, Isolator, Sounder, and Low-Frequency Sounder Base

To meet local code and application requirements, offers standard 4″ and 6″ bases, as well as, specialty base designs including relay, isolator, sounder, and low-frequency sounder options for the new 900 Series of addressable detectors as well as previous generations.

The standard 4″ and 6″ bases offer a plug-in detector base intended for use in intelligent systems, with screw terminals identified with a (+ and –). The 4″ base offers a compact design while the 6″ base provides compatibility with a wider range of junction boxes.

The specialty bases support application-driven requirements. These bases employ a separate mounting plate that installs on various junction box sizes to eliminate unsightly surface-mount boxes. The mounting plate enables the pre-wiring of all connections to speed and simplify installation.

Relay bases provide one Form-C contact relay for control of auxiliary functions, such as door closure and elevator recall. The relay can operate in two different modes (short and long delay).

The activation time for the short delay is 60-100 milliseconds, while the activation time for the long delay is 6-10 seconds. A shunt with pin headers, located on the base PC board, is used to set the delay timing.

Isolator bases allow the Signaling Line Circuit (SLC) loop to operate under fault conditions created from a short circuit preventing an entire communication loop from being disabled. The base isolates the section of the loop containing the short circuit from the remainder of the circuit and automatically restores when the fault is corrected.

Sounder and low-frequency sounder bases are designed for new and existing dwelling unit applications. They offer maximum flexibility in installation, configuration, and operation to meet or exceed UL 268 and UL 464 requirements.

The low-frequency sounder bases are designed to meet the NFPA 72 sleeping space requirement to produce a fundamental frequency of 520 Hz +/- 10% with a square wave or its equivalent. Studies show that a lower frequency, centered around 520 Hz, is the most ideal to wake sleeping occupants, even those with mild to severe hearing loss.
