Fire and Overheat Detectors


DESCRIPTION
The Fire & Overheat Detector monitors for fire and overheat conditions. It can be used in areas of very high temperatures. The detector is made from welded stainless steel and is completely sealed. It is non-repairable and cannot be disassembled. The detector is set to a specified alarm temperature at the factory and cannot be re-adjusted. Electrical connections are made through two terminal posts with threads inside. Stainless steel screws are used to attach wires to the two terminals. Mounting is with 3/4-14 NPT threads

HANDLING AND STORAGE


Take precautions to ensure that the shell and threads are not subject to damage.

For ATEX applications ensure that enclosures are grounded to an ATEX approved mounting box. Connect system wiring to the detector's terminals per applicable electrical codes using 8-32 UNC 2A stainless steel slotted hex head screws with integral washer (provided). NOTE: See ! CAUTION regarding torque limit on outline drawing below.

INSTALLATION
NOTE: Local authorities having jurisdiction should be consulted before installation. The 17343-124 detector must be installed in a suitable enclosure with appropriate group and category rating for the application. The 17343-124 detector must be mounted into an enclosure that complies with the appropriate requirements for Category 3 applications. Enclosures must have a 3/4 NPT opening to mount the detector. Thread the unit into the 3/4 NPT opening at least 5 full turns and torque to 20 foot pounds (27 N m). NOTE: See ! CAUTION regarding NPT threads on outline drawing below.

OUTLINE DRAWING !
CAUTION:
Do not use any anti-sieze, thread locking compound or lubricants on the NPT threads

CAUTION:
Do not apply more than 25 inch pounds (2.82 N m) of torque to the terminals
