Auxiliary Power Supply Manual 50702 50702 B2 B2 03 147 detectors do not sense particles of combustion alarm only when heat on their sensors increases at predetermined rate or reaches a predetermined level heat detectors may be subject to reduced over time For this reason the rate of rise of each detector should be tested at least once year by a qualified fire protection specialist Heat are designed to protect property not life Smoke detectors must be installed in same room as the control panel and in rooms used the system for the connection of alarm transmission communications signaling and or power If are not so located a developing fire may dam the alarm system crippling its ability to report a fire warning devices such as bells may not alert if these devices are located on the other side of or partly open doors or are located on another of a building Any warning device may fail to alert with a disability or those who have recently con drugs alcohol or medication Please note that Strobes can under certain circumstances cause sei Alarm System Limitations a fire alarm system may lower insurance rates it is not a substitute for fire insurance automatic fire alarm system made up of detectors heat detectors manual pull stations warning devices and a fire alarm control panel remote notification capability provide early of a developing fire Such a system however not assure protection against property damage or of life resulting from a fire Manufacturer recommends that smoke and or heat be located throughout a protected premise fol the recommendations of the current edition of the Fire Protection Association Standard 72 1999 72 1999 manufacturer recommendations and local codes and the recommendations con in the Guide for Proper Use of System Smoke which is made available at no charge to all dealers A study by the Federal Emergency Agency an agency of the United States indicated that smoke detectors may not go in as many as 35 of all fires While fire alarm sys are designed to provide early warning against fire do not guarantee warning or protection against fire fire alarm system may not provide timely or adequate or simply may not function for a variety of rea detectors may not sense fire where smoke can reach the detectors such as in chimneys in or walls on roofs or on the other side of closed Smoke detectors also may not sense a fire on level or floor of a building A second floor detec for example may not sense a first floor or basement 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 Smoke particles may be drawn into air returns before air outlets 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 that have ionizing type sensing chambers to detect fast flaming fires better than smoldering Because fires develop in different ways and are unpredictable in their growth neither type of is necessarily best and a given type of detector not provide 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 standby batteries only for a specified time and only the batteries have been properly maintained and regularly used in the system may not be technically with the control panel It is essential to use equipment 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 transmis systems 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 of Chapter 7 of NFPA 72 1999 shall be fol Environments with large amounts of dust dirt or air velocity require more frequent maintenance A agreement should be arranged through local manufacturer representative Maintenance be scheduled monthly or as required by National local fire codes and should be performed by professional fire alarm installers only Ade written records of all inspections should be kept 50702 B2 4 14 03 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 Chapter 7 after any programming operation or in site specific software Reacceptance testing required after any change addition or deletion of sys components or after any modification repair or to system 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 to 49 32 F to 120 F and at a relative humidity of 85 at 30 86 per NFPA and 2 at 32 2 89.6 1.1 per ULC the useful life of the system standby batter and the electronic components may be adversely by extreme temperature ranges and humidity it is recommended that this system and all be installed in an environment with a nomi room temperature 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 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 susceptibil Overhead or outside aerial wiring is not recom due to an increased susceptibility to nearby strikes Consult with the Technical Services if any problems are anticipated or encoun 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
