System Sensor’s 5600 Series mechanical heatdetectors offer property protection against fire and for non-life-safety installa- tions, where smoke detectorsare inappropriate.
Multiple configurations. The 5600 Series offers a full line of configurations toaccommodate a broad range of applications. Both single- and dual-circuit models are offered, each avail- ablefor low- and high-temperature ratings with either fixed- temperatureor combination fixed-temperature/rate-of-rise (ROR) activation. The ROR element ofthe fixed/ROR models is restorable, to accommodate field-testing the unit.
Installation flexibility. Tosatisfy a variety of installations, the 5600 Series easily mounts to single-gang and octagonal back- boxes. Thesemodels also accommodate 4" (101.6 mm) square backboxes when used with aplaster ring. The mount- ing bracket is reversible to allow for flush- and surface-mountbackboxinstallations.
Visual identification. The 5600Series provides clear mark- ings on the exterior of the unit to ensure that theproper detec- tor is being used. Alphanumeric characters identify theactivation method, as well as the temperature rating, in degrees Fahrenheit andCelsius. Fixed temperature models are identified “FX”, while combination fixed/rate-of-rise units are marked “FX/ROR”. The 5600Series also provides a col- lector as apost-activation indicator. Once the detector has beenactivated, the collector drops from the unit to allow easy identification ofthe specific unit in alarm.

Mechanical heat detector shall be a SystemSensor 5600 Series model number ______, Listed to Underwriters Labora- toriesUL 521 for Heat Detectors for Fire Protective Signaling Systems. The detectorshall be either a single-circuit or a dual- circuit type, normally open. The detector shall berated for acti- vation at either 135°F (57°C) or 194°F (90°C), and shall acti-vate by means of a fixed-temperature thermal sensor, or a combinationfixed-temperature/rate-of-rise thermal sensor.The rate-of-riseelement shall be activated by a rapid rise intemperature, approximately 15°F (8.3°C) per minute. The detector shall includea reversible mounting bracket for mount ing to 3.5-inch (88.9 mm) octagonal, 4-inch (101.6 mm) octag- onal, single gang,and 4-inch (101.6 mm) square backboxes with a square-to-round plaster ring. Wiring connections shallbe made by means of SEMS screws that shall accommodate 14 – 22 AWG wire. Thedetector shall contain alphanumeric markings on the exterior of the housing toidentify its temperature rating and activation method. The rate-of-rise element of combination fixed-temperature/rate-of-rise models shall be restorable, to allowfor field-testing. The detectors shall include anexternal collector that shall drop upon activation to identify the unit inalarm.
