Annunciator Control System Series Manual 15842 K 15842 K 02 266 Alarm System Limitations a fire alarm system may lower insurance rates it is not a substitute for fire insurance detectors do not sense particles of combustion automatic fire alarm system made up of alarm only when heat on their sensors increases at detectors heat detectors manual pull stations predetermined rate or reaches a predetermined level warning devices and a fire alarm control with heat detectors may be subject to reduced notification capability provide early warning over time For this reason the rate of rise fea a developing fire Such a system however does not of each detector should be tested at least once per protection against property damage or loss of life by a qualified fire protection specialist Heat detec from a fire are designed to protect property not life Manufacturer recommends that smoke and or heat Smoke detectors must be installed in the be located throughout a protected premise fol room as the control panel and in rooms used by the recommendations of the current edition of the system for the connection of alarm transmission wir Fire Protection Association Standard 72 NFPA communications signaling and or power If detec manufacturer recommendations State and local are not so located a developing fire may damage and the recommendations contained in the Guide alarm system crippling its ability to report a fire Proper Use of System Smoke Detectors which is available at no charge to all installing dealers A warning devices such as bells may not alert by the Federal Emergency Management Agency if these devices are located on the other side of agency of the United States government indicated or partly open doors or are located on another smoke detectors may not go off in as many as 35 of a building Any warning device may fail to alert all fires While fire alarm systems are designed to pro with a disability or those who have recently con early warning against fire they do not guarantee drugs alcohol or medication Please note that or protection against fire A fire alarm system Strobes can under certain circumstances cause sei not provide timely or adequate warning or simply not function for a variety of reasons detectors may not sense fire where smoke can reach the detectors such as in chimneys in or behind on roofs or on the other side of closed doors detectors also may not sense a fire on another or floor of a building A second floor detector for may not sense a first floor or basement fire of combustion or from a develop fire may not reach the sensing chambers of smoke because Barriers such as closed or partially closed doors Studies have shown that certain people even when hear a fire alarm signal do not respond or com the meaning of the signal It is the property responsibility to conduct fire drills and other exercise to make people aware of fire alarm and instruct them on the proper reaction to signals rare instances the sounding of a warning device cause temporary or permanent hearing loss in people with conditions such as epilepsy or chimneys may inhibit particle or smoke flow Smoke particles may become stratify and not the ceiling or upper walls where detectors are Smoke particles may be blown away from detectors by outlets Smoke particles may be drawn into air returns before the detector amount of present may be insufficient to smoke detectors Smoke detectors are designed alarm at various levels of smoke density If such den levels are not created by a developing fire at the of detectors the detectors will not go into alarm detectors even when working properly have limitations Detectors that have photoelectronic chambers tend to detect smoldering fires better flaming fires which have little visible smoke Detec that have ionizing type sensing chambers tend to fast flaming fires better than smoldering fires fires develop in different ways and are often in their growth neither type of detector is best and a given type of detector may not adequate warning of a fire detectors cannot be expected to provide ade warning of fires caused by arson children playing matches especially in bedrooms smoking in bed violent explosions caused by escaping gas storage of flammable materials etc fire alarm system will not operate without any electri power If AC power fails the system will operate from batteries only for a specified time and only if the have been properly maintained and replaced used in the system may not be technically with the control It is essential to use only listed for service with your control panel lines needed to transmit alarm signals from premise to a central monitoring station may be out of or temporarily disabled For added protection telephone line failure backup radio transmission are recommended most common cause of fire alarm malfunction is maintenance To keep the entire fire alarm in excellent working order ongoing maintenance required per the manufacturer recommendations UL and NFPA standards At a minimum the require of Chapter 7 of NFPA 72 shall be followed Envi with large amounts of dust dirt or high air require more frequent maintenance A mainte agreement should be arranged through the local representative Maintenance should be monthly or as required by National and or fire codes and should be performed by authorized fire alarm installers only Adequate written of all inspections should be kept PN 15842 K 7 23 2002 PN 15842 K 7 23 2002 Precautions to the following will aid in problem free installation with long term reliability Several different sources of power can connected to the fire alarm control panel Discon all sources of power before servicing Control unit associated equipment may be damaged by remov and or inserting cards modules or interconnecting while the unit is energized Do not attempt to service or operate this unit until this manual is and understood System Reacceptance Test after Soft Changes To ensure proper system operation this must be tested in accordance with NFPA 72 7 after any programming operation or change in software Reacceptance testing is required any change addition or deletion of system compo or after any modification repair or adjustment to hardware or wiring components circuits system operations or software known to be affected by a change must be tested In addition to ensure that other operations not inadvertently affected at least 10 of initiating that are not directly affected by the change up a maximum of 50 devices must also be tested and system operation verified system meets NFPA requirements for operation at C 32 120 F and at a relative humidity of 85 RH per ULC non condensing at 30 C 86 F How the useful life of the system standby batteries and electronic components may be adversely affected by temperature ranges and humidity Therefore it recommended that this system and all peripherals be in an environment with a nominal room temper of 15 27 C 60 80 F that wire sizes are adequate for all initiating and device loops Most devices cannot tolerate than a 10 I R drop from the specified device volt all solid state electronic devices this system operate erratically or can be damaged when sub to lightning induced transients Although no sys is completely immune from lightning transients and proper grounding will reduce susceptibility or outside aerial wiring is not recommended to an increased susceptibility to nearby lightning Consult with the Technical Services Department any problems are anticipated or encountered AC power and batteries prior to removing inserting circuit boards Failure to do so can damage all electronic assemblies prior to any drilling reaming or punching of the enclosure When pos make all cable entries from the sides or rear making modifications verify that they will not with battery transformer and printed circuit location
