EMS have manufactured a tool to aid the removal of the batteries from the SmartCell devices. This enables the batteries to be removed in a safe manner ensuring that any damage to the cells does not occur. The tool is muti-functional and can also be utilised as a test key for the SmartCell manual call point.
The multi-functional key will be supplied in the future with each SmartCell control panel as part of the accessories package. As the tool is multi-functional it will also be included as standard with each manual call point device to perform the functionality of the alarm test key.
