Product Notes

Alternative: EC2-H + EC2-SB


  • Rate-compensated technology
    Reduces the effects of thermal lag that slows the response of standard rate-of-rise and fixed temperature detectors.
  • At-a-glance alarm indication
    An on-board high-intensity LED glows bright red when the unit is in alarm, making response a simple and straightforward operation.
  • Non-polarized
    Simplifies installation of field wiring.
  • Simple to install, difficult to vandalize
    Twist-and-lock design saves installation and maintenance time. Field-configurable locking mechanism prevents unauthorized removal.
  • Flexible mounting options
    Compatible standard base mounts to 1-gang, 4” octagonal, BESA, or European single-gang boxes.
  • Attractive appearance with clean, modern lines
    Low-profile design blends easily with surroundings, extending less than 2 1⁄2” (61 mm) from the ceiling, including base.
