The detector generates an alarm message when its sensor detects that the temperature has reached a certain temperature point. A restore message is generated when it crosses back the threshold temperature point. There are a total of four fixed temperature points and the user can enable one or more temperature point. The MCT-560 can be used in instances where temperature detection is critical. Other examples of detector usage are as follows:

• Activating and deactivating pipe heaters at locations where low temperatures may causes the water in pipes to freeze.

• Warn of possible electrical device malfunction due to high or low temperature levels.

• Alerting elderly people of a significant rise or drop in room temperature. The MCT-560 detects both indoor and outdoor temperatures. The detector monitors room temperature using an internal sensor. For outdoor or refrigerator installations, a waterproof temperature probe (optional) is used.  Note: When the probe is connected, the temperature measurement is performed only by the probe sensor. When the probe is not connected, the temperature measurement is performed only by the detector's internal sensor.



• The MCT-560 is compatible with supporting versions of PowerMax Pro, PowerMax COMPLETE, and Amber. Note: There is no backward compatibility with PowerMax and Amber models produced before the year 2007.
