Firex FADC Smoke Alarm User Manual

SMOKE ALARM FEATURES
Model ADC features a False Alarm Control which, when acti-
vated, quiets unwanted alarms for up to 15 minutes.
This smoke alarm is powered by 120V AC and a 9-volt battery
back-up source. AC/DC smoke alarms offer added protection
in the event of a power failure or a drained battery.
Unique power connector prevents interconnection with
incompatible smoke alarms or security systems.
This smoke alarm may be interconnected with as many as 11
other Firex model FADC, AD and ADC smoke alarms, or as
many as 6 Firex model ADH heat alarms for a total of not more
than 18 interconnected devices.
Optional tamper-resist feature can serve as a safeguard
against tampering.
Unique “battery missing” lockout. The smoke alarm will not attach
to the mounting bracket if a battery is not in the battery pocket.
Improperly connected or weak battery signal. The smoke alarm
will sound a short beep about once a minute if the battery is
weak or improperly connected.
Separate green and red LEDs indicate that the smoke alarm is
receiving AC power, working under normal operation, in alarm,
or under false alarm control.
Loud alarm horn—85 decibels at 10 feet—sounds to alert you
to an emergency.
This alarm incorporates the internationally recognized horn sig-
nal for evacuation. During alarm mode, the horn produces
three short beeps followed by a 2 second pause and then
repeats. This pattern is somewhat different than the previous
alarm sound, which continually beeped.
Test button checks smoke alarm operation. Model ADC also
features a False Alarm Control which, when activated, quiets
unwanted alarms for up to 15 minutes.
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
PLEASE READ AND SAVE THESE
INSTRUCTIONS
WARNING
This smoke alarm requires constant 120-volt, AC power
AND a working 9-volt battery to operate properly. This
smoke alarm WILL NOT work if AC power is not connected or
has failed or been interrupted for any reason AND the battery is
removed, drained or improperly connected. DO NOT use any
other kind of battery except as specified in this manual. DO
NOT connect this smoke alarm to any other type of smoke
alarm or auxiliary device, except those listed in this manual.
DO NOT remove or disconnect battery or turn off AC power to
quiet unwanted alarms. This will remove your protection. Open
windows or fan the air around smoke alarm to silence it. Model
ADC smoke alarms feature a False Alarm Control button which,

The photoelectric type alarms are generally more effective at
detecting slow, smoldering fires which smolder for hours before
bursting into flame. Sources of these fires may include
cigarettes burning in couches or bedding. The ionization type
alarms are generally more effective at detecting fast, flaming
fires which consume combustible materials rapidly and spread
quickly. Sources of these fires may include flammable liquids
or paper burning in a waste container. However, both types of
alarms are designed to provide adequate detection of both
types of fires. If you desire the benefits of both systems, you
should install smoke alarms that combine in one alarm both
photoelectric and ionization sensing technologies.
