12 Clintonville Road CT 06472 203 484 7118 RPT 485W RPT 485WF Annunciator Loop Repeater Twisted Pair Wiring Fiber Optic Cable 15640 Revision B1 ECN 97 294 Precautions Adherence to the following will aid in problem free installation with long term reliability Several different sources of power can be connected to the fire alarm panel Disconnect all sources of power before servicing Control unit and equipment may be damaged by removing and or inserting cards or interconnecting cables while the unit is energized Do not attempt to service or operate this unit until this manual is read and understood System Reacceptance Test after Software Changes To ensure system operation this product must be tested in accordance with NFPA 72 Chapter 7 after any programming operation or change in site specific software testing is required after any change addition or deletion of system or after any modification repair or adjustment to system hardware or components circuits system operations or software functions known to be by a change must be 100 tested In addition to ensure that other are not inadvertently affected at least 10 of initiating devices that are directly affected by the change up to a maximum of 50 devices must also be and proper system operation verified system meets NFPA requirements for operation at 0 49O C 32 120O F at a relative humidity of 85 RH non condensing at 30O C 86O F the useful life of the system standby batteries and the electronic may be adversely affected by extreme temperature ranges and Therefore it is recommended that this system and its peripherals be in an environment with a nominal room temperature of 15 27O C 60 80O that wire sizes are adequate for all initiating and indicating device loops devices cannot tolerate more than a 10 I R drop from the specified device all solid state electronic devices this system may operate erratically or can damaged when subjected to lightning induced transients Although no system is immune from lightning transients and interferences proper grounding will susceptibility Overhead or outside aerial wiring is not recommended due to increased susceptibility to nearby lightning strikes Consult with the Technical Department if any problems are anticipated or encountered AC power and batteries prior to removing or inserting circuit boards to do so can damage circuits all electronic assemblies prior to any drilling filing reaming or punching the enclosure When possible make all cable entries from the sides or rear making modifications verify that they will not interfere with battery and printed circuit board location not tighten screw terminals more than 9 in lbs Over tightening may damage resulting in reduced terminal contact pressure and difficulty with screw removal system contains static sensitive components Always ground yourself with a wrist strap before handling any circuits so that static charges are removed the body Use static suppressive packaging to protect electronic assemblies from the unit the instructions in the installation operating and programming manuals instructions must be followed to avoid damage to the control panel and equipment FACP operation and reliability depend upon proper Alarm System Limitations installing a fire alarm system may make lower insurance possible it is not a substitute for fire insurance automatic fire alarm system typically made up of smoke detectors heat manual pull stations audible warning devices and a fire alarm control remote notification capability can provide early warning of a developing fire a system however does not assure protection against property damage or of life resulting from a fire fire alarm system may fail for a variety of reasons detectors may not sense fire where smoke cannot reach the detectors such in chimneys in walls or roofs or on the other side of closed doors Smoke also may not sense a fire on another level or floor of a building A second detector for example may not sense a first floor or basement fire Further all types of smoke detectors both ionization and photoelectric types have limitations No type of smoke detector can sense every kind of fire caused carelessness and safety hazards like smoking in bed violent explosions gas improper storage of flammable materials overloaded electrical children playing with matches or arson Smoke detectors must be installed in the same room as the panel and in rooms used by the system for the connection of alarm wiring communications signaling and or power If detectors are so located a developing fire may damage the alarm system crippling its to report a fire warning devices such as bells may not alert people if these devices are on the other side of closed or partly open doors or are located on another of a building fire alarm system will not operate without any electrical power If AC power fails system will operate from standby batteries only for a specified time heat detectors may be subject to reduced sensitivity over time For reason the rate of rise feature of each detector should be tested at least once year by a qualified fire protection specialist used in the system may not be technically compatible with the control is essential to use only equipment listed for service with your control panel lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a premise to a central station may be out of service or temporarily disabled most common cause of fire alarm malfunctions however is inadequate All devices and system wiring should be tested and maintained by fire alarm installers following written procedures supplied with each System inspection and testing should be scheduled monthly or as required National and or local fire codes Adequate written records of all inspections should kept Warning This equipment generates uses and can radiate radio frequency and if not installed and used in accordance with the instruction manual may interference to radio communications It has been tested and found to comply the limits for class A computing device pursuant to Subpart B of Part 15 of FCC which is designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference operated in a commercial environment Operation of this equipment in a area is likely to cause interference in which case the user will be required correct the interference at his own expense Requirements digital apparatus does not exceed the Class A limits for radiation noise from digital apparatus set out in the Radio Interference Regulations of the Department of Communications present appareil numerique n
