    CAST CA416  Optical Smoke Detector

    The CA416 is a high-quality smoke detector for use with C-Tec's XFP & ZFP 'CAST' protocol addressable fire panels.

    CAST is the world’s most-advanced 'distributed intelligence’ fire alarm system protocol. Conceived, designed and realised by C-TEC as part of a five-year, multi-million pound project, it involved the creation of a powerful proprietary communication protocol (C-TEC Addressable System Technology, CAST) and multiple control panels & field devices.


    • A high-quality smoke detector for use with C-Tec's XFP & ZFP CAST protocol addressable fire panels.
    • LPCB certified to EN54-7 & 17 and Kiwa Telefication certified to EN54-13.
    • Smart algorithms help reduce false alarms.
    • Onboard short circuit loop isolator.
    • Includes two 8mm x 2mm ultra-bright red LED indicating strips.
    • Drift compensation functionality.
    • 0.16dB/m sensitivity/obscuration level.
    • 5mA typical alarm current (370uA typical quiescent) @ 22-40V DC
    • Programmable multi-function status LED.
    • Compatible with C-TEC's CA408 CAST base c/w integrated locking mechanism & ID tag.


    • Approvals/Certifications : LPCB certified to EN54-7 & 17 and Kiwa Telefication certified to EN54-13
    • Compatibility : Compatible with C-TEC's XFP/ZFP CAST protocol addressable fire panels
    • Type : Optical (utilises an infrared light source and photodiode)
    • Application/Operation : When there is no smoke, light passes in front of the photodiode in a straight line. When smoke enters the chamber across the path of the IR beam, light is scattered, some of which falls on the photodiode triggering the alarm.
    • Sensitivity : 0.16dB/m
    • Supply Wiring : 2-wire, polarity sensitive
    • Supply/Operating Voltage : 22 to 40V DC
    • Quiescent Current : 370µA typical @ 22 to 40V DC
    • Alarm Current : 5mA typical (LEDs illuminated) @ 22 to 40V DC
    • Indicators : 2 LED indicator strips emitting red light when in alarm offering 360º visibility. Optional remote LED.
    • Connections : Via CA408 base: 1 +Ve IN (analogue swich); 2 +Ve OUT (analogue switch); 3 Remote LED +Ve; 4 0V; 5 0V; 6 Screen; 7 Screen.
    • Dimensions :
      • Detector Only : 102.2mm diameter x 37mm deep
      • Detector In Base : 102.2mm diameter x 57.5mm deep
    • Construction & Finish : White polycarbonate casing rated to UL94 V-2 with nylon parts
