ClareOne Rate of Rise Heat Detector Installation Sheet


Image 001


The ClareOne Rate-Of-Rise heat detector uses a built-in thermistor to sample and report on a specific set temperature or a sudden rise in temperature.

Heat – selectable 135F or 200F

Rate of Rise – rapid temp rise 12F per minute

Note: The device is powered by a 3V lithium battery providing up to 10 years of battery life.


Heat detectors are normally installed in areas that are prone to smoke such as kitchens and garages.

Installation notes:

  • Avoid areas that may have rapidly increasing temperatures such as fireplaces, stoves, heaters, etc.
  • When mounting the detector should be placed on a ceiling at least 4 inches away from any wall. If placed on a wall the detector must be within 6 inches of the ceiling.
  • If using the sensor with the heat setting at 135°F make sure the ceiling location does not exceed this temperature.


The detector can be setup to detect a fixed temperature of either 135F or 200F.

Low – 135F

High – 200F

Note: if no jumper is installed the detector is set to 200F

To set detection temperature: Use the jumper to select Low or Hi.

Replacing the batteries

Battery life depends on the temperature of the installation environment. When the battery voltage gets low, the detector transmits a low battery signal to the panel. The panel then activates trouble beeps to notify the customer that the detector battery must be replaced.

Replace the battery immediately when this condition occurs, using the following battery: Panasonic CR123A 3V

Battery disposal

The batteries used in this sensor are lithium batteries and are not reusable. Be sure to properly dispose of used lithium batteries according to your local hazardous waste disposal laws.
