feet 24 Volts in continuous tone INSTALLING System Sensor Applications Guide for System Smoke Detectors which provides detailed information on sensor spacing placement wiring and special applications This manual is available from System NFPA 72 and NEMA guidelines should be observed The National Fire Code NFPA 72 requires effective January 1 2014 that audible appli installed in sleeping areas produce a low frequency alarm signal that be a square wave or provide equivalent awakening ability with a funda frequency of 520 Hz 10 200 Series sounder bases are not compatible with remote test capable series detectors This manual should be left with the owner user of this equipment The detector used with this base must be tested and maintained following NFPA 72 requirements The detector should be cleaned at once a year DESCRIPTION B200S LF low frequency sounder base is used with System Sensor 200 Se sensor heads or equivalent For a list of compatible sensors refer to the Sensor website at www systemsensor com Refer to the appropriate for more information on sensors B200S LF low frequency sounder base generates a low frequency tone 520 Hz Studies have shown that low frequency audible devices that op around 520 Hz are more effective in waking individuals in sleeping areas sounder base is capable of producing a variety of tone patterns including distinctive three pulse temporal pattern ANSI Temporal 3 fire alarm sig now required by NFPA 72 for commercial and residential applications The offers maximum flexibility in configuration and operation to meet or the requirements of UL268 and UL464 for Continuous Temporal 3 and time patterns The temporal 4 pattern meets all requirements of UL268 UL2075 as well as private mode setting of UL 464 B200S LF can be commanded by the Fire Alarm Control Panel to adopt address of the attached sensor head but as a unique device type on the By using the address the fire alarm control panel can command an sounder base to activate or a group of sounders in a suite or other configuration The command set from the panel can be tailored to specific event allowing selection of volume tone and group The device two volume levels 75 dBA and 85 dBA The available tones are Contin ANSI Temporal 3 ANSI Temporal 4 and March Time In addition some alarm panels will offer the ability to command a custom tone pattern to the appropriate fire alarm control panel manual for more information as a component of the general evacuation signal producing an NFPA compliant Temporal 3 pattern in synchronization with other System notification devices This requires connection to a power supply of generating the System Sensor synchronization pulses a FACP NAC configured to System Sensor synchronization protocol or a separate module sounder base is intended for use with intelligent systems In addition to connected to the SLC the sounder base requires a connection to either VDC constant power or a NAC circuit depending on the FACP and intended The connections for 24V constant NAC power and the communication are isolated to prevent electrical interaction between them connected to a NAC power is supervised via the NAC circuit supervision in standby mode EOL resistor required for Class B operation when the B200S LF provides supervision of NAC power see Figure 5 using a FACP equipped with a base standby power monitor mode see table and constant 24 V power power supervision EOL de supervision relays and resistors should not be used see Figure 4 In case the B200S LF will provide supervision in both standby and alarm mode If your FACP is not listed in the table or you choose not to use base standby power monitoring mode power supervision relays EOL resistors are required to provide supervision in standby mode If the FACP base standby power monitoring mode is en connecting B200S LF low frequency sounder bases to the NAC will re in power supervision failure when in standby Only connect B200S LF frequency sounder bases to constant 24 V power in this case Refer to the manual for maximum allowable number of units per loop For NFPA72 Installations the Temporal 3 tone at high volume should be for public mode evacuation The use of other tone styles and low volume will be at the discretion of the local Authority Having Jurisdiction AHJ When not used as a supplementary evacuation system the external 24 supply shall be treated as a component of the main power supply system and fall under the requirements of the main power supply system per NFPA 72 EQUIPPED WITH STANDBY POWER MODE Model Revision

the local codes having jurisdiction and must not be of such length or wire which would cause the base to operate outside of its published specifica The conductors used to connect smoke sensors to control panels and devices should be color coded to reduce the likelihood of wiring Improper connections can prevent a system from responding properly the event of a fire sizes up to 12 AWG 2.5 mm2 may be used with the base The sounder will be shipped with the screw terminals set for 14 AWG wiring If 12 wire is to be used back out the screws to allow the wire to fit beneath clamping plates For best system performance the power and wires the communication circuit wires should be twisted pair or shielded cable in a separate grounded conduit to protect the communication loop electrical
