Pressing on the Ei407 Manual Call Point (MCP) black spot causes all
Alarms on RadioLINK Bases and RadioLINK Alarms to sound. This
informs the occupants that the building must be evacuated.
The Ei407 MCP also provides a means to test the Alarms without
having to reach up to the Alarms on the ceilings, as it can be reset
with the plastic key (supplied).
We suggest that the plastic key is mounted on a small nail under or
alongside the MCP for future use when resetting (as shown above).
It is recommended that you install all the other RadioLINK Bases / Alarms
and any other RadioLINK components before installing this MCP.
All RadioLINK units should be located in their final positions before
House Coding commences.
1. The MCP should be positioned (approx) 1.2 meters high on a wall, in
a suitable location on an exit route (avoid locating near metal objects).
2. Securely attach the mounting box to the wall using the fixing screws
3. Remove the bottom housing by first pushing in the forked end of the
key (with arrow side out) into the two slots (see Figure 1). The bottom
housing should drop down by about 10mm and expose the yellow
edge on the top of the white element (with the black spot). Remove
the key, pull the bottom housing down and then lift it up to remove
(see Figure 2).
4. Next remove the white element by lifting the lower edge (see Figure 3).
5. Connect the built-in battery by sliding the
battery switch into the “on” position. (see
6. Press the House Code switch until the light
on the front turns on red (see Figure 4) (The
unit will now send out a coded alarm signal
and the red light will flash).
7. Screw the front plate to the wall box using the
two machine screws provided (see Figure 5).
8. Now re-install the white element, yellow
edge uppermost (see Figure 6). Replace the
bottom housing by lining up the two notches
and carefully pushing it flat - this should
leave it about 10mm below the bottom edge.
Now slide the bottom housing upwards (see
Figure 7). This resets the switch. The yellow
edge on the white element should now be
hidden (The unit will now send out a coded
alarm cancel signal). The red light will then
continue to flash to show it is in House Code
mode, for the next 15 minutes.
9. Immediately put all other RadioLINK
Smoke Alarms and other components into
House Code mode within 10 minutes.
10. In House Code mode, the MCP will now
send a radio message every 5 seconds. All
RadioLINK Bases and Smoke/Heat Alarms
within range that are also in House Code
mode themselves will memorise the House
Code of the MCP.
11. Check that the number of amber light
flashes (for RadioLINK Bases) or blue light
flashes (for RadioLINK Smoke Alarms)
corresponds with the number of units in the
system (e.g. Bases / Alarms plus MCP). For
example, with 3 RadioLINK Bases and 1
MCP you should see 4 amber light flashes
from each Base.
(Note: the MCP flashing red light does not
indicate the number of units in the system. It
just flashes rapidly to show it is in House
Code mode. The MCP is only an RF
transmitter and does not receive any RF
12. Remove all the RadioLINK Bases /
Alarms from House Code mode as
described in their instruction leaflets.
13. The MCP will exit the House Code mode
by itself after approx. 15 minutes without
further user intervention.
However, this could result in problems
with nearby systems if their units are
being House Coded at the same time. If
this is the case remove the MCP from its
mounting box and then from House Code
mode by pressing and holding the code
button until the red light comes on (i.e. use
the same method as to enter House Code
mode). Release the button and the red
light will go out, indicating that the MCP
has exited House Code mode. Re-
assemble and attach to box as described
Please note that this will cause the MCP
to send out a coded alarm signal which
will activate the RadioLINK Bases /
Alarms that have previously been House
Coded during the installation procedure.
3. CHECKING & TESTING THE MCP
The MCP is an important alarm device and should be tested after
installation and then weekly (and after prolonged absence) to ensure
correct operation as follows.
a) Check that the light on the front flashes green every 40 seconds.
This indicates it has power.
b) Press the black spot and the white element will drop down
exposing the yellow edge to show it is activated. The light will turn red
and stay on continuously for 3 seconds and then continue to flash red
(every 20 seconds) for 5 minutes indicating transmission of the alarm
signal (Note: after 5 minutes the RF alarm signal ceases and
therefore the smoke alarms will stop alarming. This prevents the
batteries in the MCP and the alarm from being depleted).
c) Check the RadioLINK units are now in alarm (If some or all of the
alarms have not been activated, then the House Coding procedure
should be repeated. If there are still some problems, see the
“Troubleshooting RF Link” section on page 4).
d) The MCP should be reset with the plastic key provided by pushing
the forked end (arrow side up) into the slots (see Figure 1) and pulling
the bottom housing down. Remove the plastic key. Now push the
bottom housing firmly against the back and slide upwards. This resets
the switch.The yellow strip on the white element should now be hidden.
e) If the MCP is not reset the light will flash red every 40 seconds to
remind the user to reset it.
On reset, the alarm cancel signal will be transmitted (indicated by a
single red light flash for 3 seconds).
If the light flashes amber every 9 seconds this indicates that the
batteries are depleted and the MCP will no longer be able to send an
alarm signal. The unit must be removed from its location and returned
for repair if within the guarantee period, (see sections 7 & 8 for details).
