The Hochiki Addressable Call Point, model HCP-E-SCI is a Manual Call Point with integral short-circuit isolator, which is fully compatible with Hochiki’s ESP analogue addressable protocol. The unit incorporates a bi-coloured LED, which can be selected as pulsing/non-pulsing* for communications polling and is continuously lit when the HCP-E-SCI is operated – in these two states the LED will show red. The LED will show amber when a short-circuit is present but will switch to red if the unit is activated.
The unit operates by pressing the EN54 compliant non-frangible (plastic) element and produces a high level ESP interrupt. A built in test function initiated by the control panel ensures the integrity of the device at all times and the device can be tested by insertion of a test key in the underside of the unit. Two terminal blocks are provided for easy connection to the loop wiring.
The unit is addressed using the TCH-B100 Hand Held Programmer for quick and reliable addressing. The unit can be flush mounted as supplied. For surface fixing a suitable back box such as the MCPBB-R is required (sold separately). A waterproof version (HCP-W-SCI) is also available.
*Fire alarm control panel compatibility is required for this feature.
