Home Security Store carries the BK-5602 - 194 Degree Heat Detector, which is part of System Sensor’s 5600 Series Mechanical Heat Detectors.The 5600 series offers a low cost means for property protection against fire and for non-life-safety installations where smoke detectors aren’t a fit. These detectors can be used for many applications. Both single and dual-circuit models are available for low and high temperature ratings with either fixed temperature or combination fixed temperature/rate-of-rise (ROR) activation. The ROR element of the fixed/ROR models is restorable to accommodate field-testing.Furthermore, to satisfy a variety of installation needs, the 5600 series easily mounts to single-gang and octagonal back boxes. The models work with four square back boxes when used with a square to plaster ring. The reversible mounting bracket allows both flush-and-surface mount back box installations. The 5600 series also provides clear markings on the exterior of the unit to ensure that the proper detector is being used.
