Reduce False Alarms & Failures

Designed for connection to an alarm panel that accepts 2-wire fire inputs, the ESL 4-Wire Smoke Detector integrates reliable, self-diagnostic smoke detection into your security system. As part of the 541 Series, this photoelectric detector features drift compensation, diagnostics and more to enhance performance and reduce false alarms.

  • Triggers alarm through security system when activated
  • Drift compensation reduces time between cleanings
  • Field replaceable optical chamber for easy servicing
  • Small, low profile design blends into the ceiling

Advanced Cleaning Features

The detector uses built-in drift compensation to increase the amount of time between cleanings and reduce false alarms. Drift compensation automatically adjusts the detector’s sensitivity as it gets dirty with time.

When the detector finally needs cleaning, you can easily replace its optical chamber and continue relying on the unit without worry.

Self-Supervised to Reduce Downtime

All 500 Series smoke detectors self-supervise their sensitivity and operational status to provide visual and system alerts if they fall out of the appropriate sensitivity range or fail internal diagnostic tests. This meets NFPA 72 field sensitivity testing requirements without the need for external meters.

How It Works

500 Series smoke detectors work on the photoelectric light-scattering principle. A pulsed infrared (IR) LED provides the light source, and a high-speed photodiode serves as the sensor. This technology offers superior protection against false alarms caused by dust, bugs, RF interference, and ambient light.

Note: Not designed for standalone use; must be connected to an alarm panel.
