The Industry's ONLY Weathertight Duct Smoke Detector to boast NEMA 4X rating is now available! Check the single-latch closure - no screws to slow you down. And a one-piece cover! Compatible with all legacy APC detectors, sample tubes and remote accessories. Our timed Maintenance Mode allows servicing with no extra trouble reports to the system. The next generation of trade-dedicated terminal blocks help HVAC, Fire and Electrical installers from pirating terminals...

The RT-3000 is what you get when you truly listen to the voice of the customer.

The RT‑3000 builds on our commitment to installer/
servicer friendly products, and significantly reduces
the total cost of ownership versus other comparable
products. Our attention to detail has yielded a host
of “No-Tools Required” features, as well as a multi-application
performance level as yet unmatched in
the industry.

The weathertight NEMA 4X rated corrosion resistant
enclosure coupled with extended temperature listings
allow installation in the widest possible range of
indoor/outdoor environments. The RT-3000 can be
installed in both horizontal or vertical configurations
to match installation preferences.
