273 Branchport Ave Branch N J 07740 631 2148 SERIES AMT MULTITONE STROBE APPLIANCES Thank you for using our products INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS this product according to this instruction manual Please keep this instruction manual for future reference AMT Multitone Strobe Appliances are UL Listed under Standard 1971 for Signaling Appliances for the Hearing Impaired and UL 464 for Audible Signal Appliances They are listed for wall mounting and indoor use only with the backboxes specified in instructions See Mounting Options The 15 candela wall mounted strobes are listed at 15 candela under UL Standard 1971 and 75 candela intensity on axis with low current draw The AMT Multitone Strobe Appliances use a xenon flashtube with solid state enclosed in a rugged Lexan cid 210 lens to provide maximum visibility and reliability for effective visib le signaling AMT Appliances are unique multitone alarm appliances with separate input terminals for each sound They are the ideal for suppression systems and emergency signaling systems where distinctive multiple alarm conditions are required Sound can be field set to provide either HIGH HI dBA or STANDARD STD dBA sound output level AMT Multitone Strobe models are designed for use with either filtered or unfiltered Full Wave Rectified FWR input voltage The Multitone Strobe Appliances have separate input terminals for alarm tone activation and strobe activation The strobes can be field programmed to operate independently or in unison with all of the audible appliances All inputs are polarized for with standard reverse polarity supervision of circuit wiring by a Fire Alarm Control Panel FACP Series AMT and AMT4 is a single multitone device capable of three separate and distinct signals from three different sources with an ADA compliant strobe light These devices may be employed only in the following installations Computer rooms libraries museums etc which utilize FM 200 halon inergen or any other fire extinguishing system as defined in Rules of the City of New York 15 08 Pre Action Sprinkler Systems In lieu of the three separate and distinct signals at the Interior Fire Alarm Smoke Detection and Sprinkler Alarm Systems control 1 below shows the following sequence of tones for various systems and 1 Tone 2 3 Horn Tone 3 Chime 1 Sequence of Tones for Various Systems FM 200 etc Discharge Detector Pull Station Tamper Device Supervisory any Trouble Condition 2 Detector Smoke 2 3 of 3 Separate and Signals at IPA Detector Pull Station Tamper Device any Trouble Condition 2 example whenever the vibrating chime Priority 3 is activated in a computer room protected by FM 200 agent then the occupants know that one smoke detector has been activated When the code 3 horn Priority 2 is activated then the occupants will be to evacuate the premises and finally the bell tone Priority 1 means the release of the extinguishing agent The ADA compliant will be activated upon the first fire detection and will stay on throughout the sequence of operation leading to discharge note that during any time when multiple signals are received a Priority 3 signal shall be overridden by a Priority 2 signal which shall be overridden by a Priority 1 signal engraved signage explaining the significance of each signal will be placed near each of the signaling devices 1997 1998 2000 Wheelock Inc All rights reserved C 1 of 9 All CAUTIONS and WARNINGS are identified by the symbol All warnings are printed in bold capital letters PLEASE READ THESE INSTRUCTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE USING THIS PRODUCT FAILURE TO COMPLY ANY OF THE FOLLOWING INSTRUCTIONS CAUTIONS AND WARNINGS COULD RESULT IN IMPROPER APPLICATION AND OR OPERATION OF THESE PRODUCTS IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION WHICH COULD RESULT IN DAMAGE AND SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH TO YOU AND OR OTHERS THE AMT MULTITONE STROBE APPLIANCES MUST BE FIELD SET TO THE DESIRED dBA SOUND OUTPUT BEFORE THEY ARE INSTALLED THIS IS DONE BY PROPERLY INSERTING A JUMPER PLUG AND ADJUSTING A FOUR SWITCH IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE INSTRUCTIONS INCORRECT SETTINGS WILL RESULT IN IMPROPER AND MAY DAMAGE THE PRODUCT WHICH COULD RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE AND SERIOUS INJURY DEATH TO YOU AND OR OTHERS 2 UL Listed Models CD 15 15cd models are UL Listed at 15cd and meet 75 on axis UL Listed Rated Voltage range is 20.0 31.0VDC using either filtered DC or unfiltered full wave rectified FWR voltage Check minimum and maximum output of the power supply and standby battery and subtract the voltage drop from the circuit wiring to determine the applied voltage to the signaling appliance WARNING THESE APPLIANCES WERE TESTED TO THE OPERATING VOLTAGE LIMITS OF 20 31 VOLTS USING FILTERED OR UNFILTERED FULL WAVE RECTIFIED FWR DO NOT APPLY 80 AND 110 OF THESE VOLTAGE VALUES FOR OPERATION 3 Current Ratings for AMT Audible Appliances AMPS 3 Horn Chime 1560 Hz Modulated 0.07 Sec ON Repeat Horn ANSI S3.41 Temporal Pattern 700Hz 1.0 Sec Decay Repeat dBA Average Current dBA The AMT Multitone Audible appliances produce a brief inrush current that lasts for 2 microseconds but can reach a peak value of 8.0 11.2 Amps for FWR input Add 25 more input current than shown in Table 3 when operating the unit at maximum input voltage Add strobe current from Table 5 to audible appliance current from Table 3 to obtain total current for each unit if the strobe and are wired to operate in unison on a single circuit 4 dBA for AMT Multitone with Strobe 3 Horn Chimes 10 10 Per UL 464 75 75 70 75 79 73 dBA is measured on axis in a non reflective field test room using fast meter response For peak measured with peak meter response add 5 dBA to values shown in Table 4 Reverberant dBA is a UL rating based on sound power measurements a reverberant test room AMT MULTITONE STROBE MODELS SET ON VIBRATING CHIME TONE WITH STANDARD dBA DO NOT MEET 75 dBA MINIMUM UL REVERBERANT SOUND LEVEL REQUIRED FOR PUBLIC MODE FIRE PROTECTION SERVICE NOTED IN TABLE 4 MODELS WITH SETTINGS WHICH PRODUCE LESS THAN 75 dBA MAY NOT BE HEARD THIS SETTING IS ONLY FOR GENERAL SIGNALING NON FIRE ALARM USE USE THE HIGH dBA SETTING WITH THIS TONE USE A DIFFERENT TONE FOR PUBLIC MODE SERVICE C 2 of 9 5 Strobe Requirement AMPS Average Peak Inrush Time duration for the peak and inrush current is 2 milliseconds MAKE SURE THAT THE TOTAL AVERAGE CURRENT TOTAL PEAK CURRENT AND TOTAL INRUSH CURRENT BY ALL APPLIANCES THAT ARE CONNECTED TO THE SYSTEM PRIMARY AND SECONDARY POWER SOURCES SIGNALING CIRCUITS DO NOT EXCEED THE POWER SOURCES RATED CAPACITY OR THE CURRENT RATINGS OF ANY ON THE CIRCUITS TO WHICH THESE APPLIANCES ARE WIRED OVERLOADING POWER SOURCES OR EXCEEDING RATINGS COULD RESULT IN LOSS OF POWER AND FAILURE TO ALERT OCCUPANTS DURING AN EMERGENCY WHICH RESULT IN PROPERTY DAMAGE AND SERIOUS INJURY OR DEATH TO YOU AND OR OTHERS calculating the total average peak and inrush currents Use Table 5 to determine the highest value of Average Current an individual strobe across the expected operating voltage range of the strobe to determine the highest value of Inrush or Peak Current
