QMT-5300A, QMT-5302 and QZT-5302 Installation and Operation Instructions
QMT-5300A, QMT-5302 and QZT-5302 Instructions
Introduction
MIRCOM’s Fire Fighters’ Telephone may be used either alone as a Single Zone System (using the QMT-5300A or
QMT-5302 Master Telephone by itself), or as a Multi-Zoned System (with the QZT-5302 Zone Adders).
Mounting
The modules mount in any of the BB-1000 Series Remote Annunciator enclosures except for the QMT-5302 Master
Telephone which mounts into a BB-5008 or BB-5014 backbox. For the QMT-5300A Master Telephone, the included
extended window module must be installed in place of the existing window. In any BB-1000 enclosure, the QMT5300A is mounted bottom-most, and one to five QZT-5302s above, for a total of 60 Telephone Zones. In any BB5008 enclosure, the QMT-5302 should be mounted below the QZT-5302s and beside the master telephone for ease
of ribbon cable installation.
Labels
Two slide-in labels are supplied with the QMT-5300A ; the NP-735 is used for Single Zone and the NP-736 for MultiZone. Slide-in label NP-896 is provided with the QMT-5302, use the Connect for Single Zone or Clear All label for
Multi-Zone. The QZT-5302 includes blank labels for Telephone Zone information.
Chassis Ground
Connect one of the BB-1000 Series Backbox, BB-5008 or BB-5014 Earth-Ground points (Chassis Ground) to Earth
Ground (cold water pipe).
Power Supply
Only the telephone master QMT-5300A or QMT-5302 module requires power. It can be powered with a 24 VDC,
200 mA external DC power source (filtered or un-filtered, such as 4-wire smoke or auxiliary power from a Fire Alarm
Control Panel), see Fig.1
Jumpers
There are three jumpers on the QMT-5300A and QMT-5302 PCB showing at the top of the black chassis. For a
Single-Zoned System JW1 and JW2 have jumpers installed, JW3 does not. For a Multi-Zoned system with QZT5302s, JW1 & JW2 jumpers are removed, and JW3 is installed. There is one jumper, JW1, on each QZT-5302 Zone
Adder, and a jumper is installed only on the last QZT-5302.
Connectors
On the QMT-5300A and QMT-5302, P1 is used only for Multi-Zoned Systems. P2 is the connection for the Master
Telephone Handset. On the QZT-5302, P1 connects to the QMT-5300A, QMT-5302 or previous QZT-5302, and P2
connects to the next QZT-5302.

QMT-5300A/QMT-5302 Master Telephone Wiring
Figure 1 shows the wiring for QMT-5300A and QMT-5302. A Fire Alarm Control Panel’s Detection Zone (should be
configured as Trouble-Only or Non-Latching Supervisory) is used to annunciate Telephone Trouble. This is
connected to the QMT-5300A or QMT-5302 TROUBLE terminals (polarity does not matter), and the ELR device for
that zone is connected to the QMT-5300A or QMT-5302 ELR terminals. DC Power (24 V DC, filtered or unfiltered at
200 mA) is connected to the 24 V DC terminals.
If the Master Telephone is being used alone as a Single-Zone System, the NP-735 Label is used or Connect label
from NP-896, and Jumpers are placed on JW1 and JW2 only. The one Telephone Zone connects to the TEL-CKT
terminals. The 10 Kohm ELR resistor that is shipped with this unit is connected after the last Remote Telephone on
the Zone and the negative black jumper is removed for Class B. For Class A wiring, remove both red and black
jumper wires and wire from OUT + - to the remote telephones and back to RET + -.
If the Master Telephone is being used as a Multi-Zoned System with QZT-5302s, the NP-736 Label is used or Clear
All label from NP-896, and a Jumper is placed on JW3 only. The TEL-CKT terminals are left as is. Telephone Zone
wiring is done via the QZT-5302s.

QZT-5302 Zone Adder Wiring
Figure 2 shows the wiring for QZT-5302. The P1 Cable plugs into P1 on the QMT-5300A or QMT-5302 Master
Telephone for the first Zone Adder, or into P2 of the previous Zone Adder for additional Zone Adders. The Jumper
plug is removed from JW1 on each QZT-5302 and placed on the last QZT-5302.
The Telephone Zones connect to telephone circuits marked Out and Ret (return) terminals, numbered from 1 to 12.
The 10 K ohm ELR resistors that are shipped with the panel are moved to the last Remote Telephone on each Zone
(for Class B) and the negative to negative black wire jumper is removed when using class B wiring.
For Class A, each telephone zone is wired out from the OUT + - terminals to the remote telephones and back to
terminals RET + and -. Also for Class A wiring both the red and black wire jumpers found on the positive and
negative terminals of the QZT-5302 are removed.
Note that on each QZT-5302, the associated buttons for Telephone Zones 1 to 12 are numbered left to right, where
Zones 1 to 6 are the top row, and 7 to 12 are the bottom row.

Warranty & Warning Information
Warning Please Read Carefully
Note to End Users: This equipment is subject to terms and conditions of sale as follows:
Note to Installers
This warning contains vital information. As the only individual in contact with system users, it is your responsibility to
bring each item in this warning to the attention of the users of this system. Failure to properly inform system endusers of the circumstances in which the system might fail may result in over-reliance upon the system. As a result,
it is imperative that you properly inform each customer for whom you install the system of the possible forms of
failure.
System Failures
This system has been carefully designed to be as effective as possible. There are circumstances, such as fire or
other types of emergencies where it may not provide protection. Alarm systems of any type may be compromised
deliberately or may fail to operate as expected for a variety of reasons. Some reasons for system failure include:
•Inadequate Installation
A Fire Alarm system must be installed in accordance with all the applicable codes and standards in order to provide
adequate protection. An inspection and approval of the initial installation, or, after any changes to the system, must
be conducted by the Local Authority Having Jurisdiction. Such inspections ensure installation has been carried out
properly.
•Power Failure
Control units, smoke detectors and many other connected devices require an adequate power supply for proper
operation. If the system or any device connected to the system operates from batteries, it is possible for the
batteries to fail. Even if the batteries have not failed, they must be fully charged, in good condition and installed
correctly. If a device operates only by AC power, any interruption, however brief, will render that device inoperative
while it does not have power. Power interruptions of any length are often accompanied by voltage fluctuations which
may damage electronic equipment such as a fire alarm system. After a power interruption has occurred,
immediately conduct a complete system test to ensure that the system operates as intended.
•Failure of Replaceable Batteries
Systems with wireless transmitters have been designed to provide several years of battery life under normal
conditions. The expected battery life is a function of the device environment, usage and type. Ambient conditions
such as high humidity, high or low temperatures, or large temperature fluctuations may reduce the expected battery
life. While each transmitting device has a low battery monitor which identifies when the batteries need to be
replaced, this monitor may fail to operate as expected. Regular testing and maintenance will keep the system in
good operating condition.
•Compromise of Radio Frequency (Wireless) Devices
Signals may not reach the receiver under all circumstances which could include metal objects placed on or near the
radio path or deliberate jamming or other inadvertent radio signal interference.
•System Users
A user may not be able to operate a panic or emergency switch possibly due to permanent or temporary physical
disability, inability to reach the device in time, or unfamiliarity with the correct operation. It is important that all
system users be trained in the correct operation of the alarm system and that they know how to respond when the
system indicates an alarm.
•Automatic Alarm Initiating Devices
Smoke detectors, heat detectors and other alarm initiating devices that are a part of this system may not properly
detect a fire condition or signal the control panel to alert occupants of a fire condition for a number of reasons, such
as: the smoke detectors or heat detector may have been improperly installed or positioned; smoke or heat may not
5
Warranty & Warning Information
be able to reach the alarm initiating device, such as when the fire is in a chimney, walls or roofs, or on the other side
of closed doors; and, smoke and heat detectors may not detect smoke or heat from fires on another level of the
residence or building.
•Software
Most Mircom products contain software. With respect to those products, Mircom does not warranty that the
operation of the software will be uninterrupted or error-free or that the software will meet any other standard of
performance, or that the functions or performance of the software will meet the user’s requirements. Mircom shall
not be liable for any delays, breakdowns, interruptions, loss, destruction, alteration or other problems in the use of a
product arising our of, or caused by, the software.
Every fire is different in the amount and rate at which smoke and heat are generated. Smoke detectors cannot
sense all types of fires equally well. Smoke detectors may not provide timely warning of fires caused by
carelessness or safety hazards such as smoking in bed, violent explosions, escaping gas, improper storage of
flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing with matches or arson.
Even if the smoke detector or heat detector operates as intended, there may be circumstances when there is
insufficient warning to allow all occupants to escape in time to avoid injury or death.
•Alarm Notification Appliances
Alarm Notification Appliances such as sirens, bells, horns, or strobes may not warn people or waken someone
sleeping if there is an intervening wall or door. If notification appliances are located on a different level of the
residence or premise, then it is less likely that the occupants will be alerted or awakened. Audible notification
appliances may be interfered with by other noise sources such as stereos, radios, televisions, air conditioners or
other appliances, or passing traffic. Audible notification appliances, however loud, may not be heard by a hearingimpaired person.
•Telephone Lines
If telephone lines are used to transmit alarms, they may be out of service or busy for certain periods of time. Also the
telephone lines may be compromised by such things as criminal tampering, local construction, storms or
earthquakes.
•Insufficient Time
There may be circumstances when the system will operate as intended, yet the occupants will not be protected from
the emergency due to their inability to respond to the warnings in a timely manner. If the system is monitored, the
response may not occur in time enough to protect the occupants or their belongings.
•Component Failure
Although every effort has been made to make this system as reliable as possible, the system may fail to function as
intended due to the failure of a component.
•Inadequate Testing
Most problems that would prevent an alarm system from operating as intended can be discovered by regular testing
and maintenance. The complete system should be tested as required by national standards and the Local Authority
Having Jurisdiction and immediately after a fire, storm, earthquake, accident, or any kind of construction activity
inside or outside the premises. The testing should include all sensing devices, keypads, consoles, alarm indicating
devices and any other operational devices that are part of the system.
•Security and Insurance
Regardless of its capabilities, an alarm system is not a substitute for property or life insurance. An alarm system also
is not a substitute for property owners, renters, or other occupants to act prudently to prevent or minimize the
harmful effects of an emergency situation.
IMPORTANT NOTE: End-users of the system must take care to ensure that the system, batteries, telephone lines,
etc. are tested and examined on a regular basis to ensure the minimization of system failure.
