EU compliant Dual Band frequency operations. Capacity is suitable for the intended use.
Monitoring and Testing
Operation of the device must always be checked by removing aerosol can and checking correct mechanical movement of the device.
Ariete has three activation levels:
1) arming: this command is always sent through a radio signal, either from a Silentron control panel or, when there is no control panel, from key-activated device part no. 5515AR
2) pre-alarm: this is always sent through a radio signal from transmitter 5515AR, triggered by a magnetic contact, or from the control panel when the alarm is in progress.
3) spraying: this can be an electric command transmitted by wire (contact closure) or the transmission of a radio signal sent by a Silentron detector which must be received within a time set by the second command.
Spraying time is adjustable, for maximum effectiveness, but even when adjusted to the maximum it does not allow dispensing amounts greater than 20 mg. LED lights provide precise information on operating conditions.
Ariete is built with an anonymous white plastic housing in order to be as unobtrusive as possible.
