The Conventional Manual Call Point is used to manually initiate an alarm signal on the fire detection system.
The Manual Call Point consists of a 470 resistor in series with a normally open switch contact. The Manual Call Point helps reduce installation time as all the initial installation cabling is wired to a terminal block which connects neatly to the call point. Once activated, the manual call point can be reset by inserting the test key into the bottom of the unit until the key clicks into position. Remove the test key and push the front cover up until it clicks home.
The component parts of the call point are moulded in polycarbonate or ABS, depending on their function.
Apollo's Conventional Manual Call Points comply with EN 54-11 and are available in both indoor and outdoor variants. Apollo also offers a yellow variant suitable for alternative applications.
