Functional description & components


At installation indoors, inside the rack, etc., the sensor monitors the occurrence of smoke inside the building. It is a daisy chain sensor, max. distance from the monitoring unit is 150 meters.

The maximum amount of sensors and maximum length can be extended using the "VT408 / Sensor extension unit".


The smoke sensor consists of a compact plastic housing with ventilation holes.

The sensor can not be used on its own. It must be used together with Vutlan monitoring systems.

Safety instructions

  • Please observe the valid regulations for installation in the country in which the smoke alarm is installed and operated and the national regulations for accident prevention. Please also observe any internal company regulations, such as work, operating, and safety regulations.

  • The technical specifications and limit values stated must not be exceeded under any circumstances. In particular, this applies to the specified ambient temperature range and IP protection category.

  • If a higher IP protection category is required for a special application, the smoke alarm must be installed in an appropriate housing or an appropriate enclosure with the required IP protection category.

Siting location requirements

To ensure the proper functioning of the unit, the conditions for the installation site of the unit specified in section “Technical specifications” must be observed.

Electromagnetic interference

Interfering electrical installations (high frequency) should be avoided.

Installation procedure

Notes on assembly

  • It is vital to ensure that the smoke alarm is always assembled with the sensor head pointing downwards. In any other position, there is no guarantee that smoke will be detected.

  • The smoke alarm must also be positioned so that it is ventilated with an adequate amount of air and the ventilation slots are not covered.

Installation with the mounting plate provided

The smoke alarm is installed using the mounting plate provided.

  • Uncover the smoke detector head from the base.

  • Attach the smoke sensor base to the mounting plate using the M4 x 10 screws provided.

  • Replace the sensor head onto the base and secure it by twisting it until it locks home.

  • Secure the mounting plate to the enclosure frame using the 4.8 x 19 screws.

  • Remove the red protective cap!

Connecting the smoke sensor

Connect one end of the RJ11 / RJ12 cable to the monitoring unit and the other end to any of the two inputs of the smoke sensor. It is possible to connect up to 10 sensors to one analog port. To do so connect the new RJ11 cable to a free input of the already connected smoke sensor and the other end to the next smoke sensor in a chain. See the picture below. RJ11 or RJ12 cable pinouts can be found in the picture below. After the system will start and sense the smoke detector, the LED on the smoke detector will blink dimly once a second.

Testing the smoke sensors

During system operation, take a needle or paper clip and insert it into the hole on the cover of the sensor, try to move it there until the blinking dimly LED will flash brightly. That means that sensor is in a good state. After inspection, return the sensor /s to a normal state. To do this, either disconnect them from the system, or in a system interface, go to the smoke sensors tab, and restart them.
