Setup of a fire detection system
Detectors
With detectors, we distinguish between automatic detectors and manual call points.
Automatic detectors monitor a room and automatically trigger alarm in case of fire.
Depending on the type, automatic detectors may react on smoke, flames, or temperature.
Manual call points must always be actuated by a person.
Control unit
All detectors and alarm devices are connected to the fire detection control unit. If a
detector gives alarm, this alarm signal is transmitted to the control unit. The control
unit decides how the alarm shall be processed. This also applies for fault signals.
The processing of alarms and faults differs from one control unit type to the next. It
is e.g. possible to automatically alert the fire brigade, or to activate signal horns.
Alarm devices
Alarm devices only come into operation in case of alarm. In case of alarm, the signal horns and flash-lights are activated via control lines. In addition, it is possible to
transmit the alarm to an external receiving station (e.g. fire brigade) via a remote
transmission device (RT). In case of fault, it is also possible to inform an external
receiving station.

Structure and function
Indicator module
The indicator module is optional and is possibly not equipped yet. The operation
thus differs largely and is mentioned in this manual in the corresponding sections.
Key switch
The key switch is optional and is possibly not equipped yet. It serves for enabling
operation and has the same function as the password (see section 'Enabling operating level 2').
4.2
Function
4.2.1
The most important functions
Function levels
The fire detection control unit is secured against unauthorized manipulation by the
following operating levels:
Operating level 1: operation always possible
Operating level 2: control panel only possible with password or key switch
Operating level 3: operation only possible for the service technician
On operating level 1, only the most important commands in case of alarm can be
issued. All other commands are only accessible on operating level 2.
Power supply
The fire detection control unit is always connected to the power supply system. In
case of a mains failure the control unit is fed from the built-in batteries. Battery operation in case of mains failure is limited.
4.2.2
Detector zones
In the fire detection system, several detectors are always combined in a so-called
detector zone. Depending on the version, the control unit monitors 2, 4, 8, 12 or 24
detector zones.
Up to 32 detectors can be connected to one detector zone. In case of fire, only the
detector zone of the alarming detector is indicated on the control unit. It is thus important to know where the detectors of the individual detector zones are located.
The service technician has handed over a building plan to you, in which the allocation of the detectors to the detector zones is indicated.

4.2.3
Operating modes
The fire detection control unit has the following mode of operations:
'Unmanned'
This operating mode must be set when no instructed staff is present. In case of
alarm or fault, remote transmission (e.g. to the fire brigade) is activated immediately.
'Manned'
In this operating mode instructed staff is present, who is involved in the process
in case of alarm or fault. In this operating mode, an alarm or fault signal activates the remote transmission (e.g. to the fire brigade) only after the expiry of a
defined period of time.
Manual switchover between 'Manned' and 'Unmanned'
The switchover between the operating modes 'Manned' and 'Unmanned' may always be performed manually.
Automatic switchover between 'Manned' and 'Unmanned'
With fire detection system with an indicator module, automatic switchover is possible. At maximum two switchover times may be defined.
Automatic switchover between summer time and winter time
With fire detection systems with an indicator module, switching over between
summer time and winter time can be effected automatically.

Faults
The fire detection control unit includes a comprehensive self-monitoring functionality. When the control unit detects an error in the system (e.g. a detector is removed), this is signaled as fault. Faults are normally transmitted to a receiving station. Faults should always be remedied as quickly as possible.
The process with a fault depends on the set operating mode 'Manned' or 'Unmanned' (see figure below).

Polling event memory
Overview
This function is only available with control units with an indicator module.
The event memory records event with date and time. These event can be polled at
any time. Each event has an event number. This number is displayed on the indicator module (e.g. E.012.). The most recent event has the lowest number (E.001.).
The event is indicated by means of the LED. An alarm on zone 4, for example, is
indicated by the red zone LED 4.
Procedure
To poll the event memory, proceed as follows:
1. Enable the operating level 2 (password or key).
2. Keep the key 'Acknowledge' pressed and enter the code '1122' with the numerical keys.
The indicator module displays 'E.001.' (most recent event).
The type of event is indicated by the LEDs (see table below).
3. Poll the year of the event with the numeric key '1', the month with the key '2' and
the time with the key '3'.
The indicator module displays e.g. '2004'
4. To indicate the next event, press the key 'Reset'.
The indicator module displays 'E.002'.
To get back to the most recent event, press the numeric key '4'.
The indicator module displays 'E.001.'
5. To quit the event memory, press the numeric key 'Acknowledge'.

Setting date and time
Overview
This function is only available with control units with an indicator module.
Control units with an indicator module are equipped with an integrated clock. In
countries in which the Central European Summertime is valid, this clock automatically switches between summer and winter time. In all other countries the settings
must be made manually.
The clock must also be set when the fire detection control unit has been disconnected from the power supply system for a longer period of time.
Procedure
To set the date and time, proceed as follows:
1. Enable the operating level 2 (password or key).
2. Keep the key 'Reset' pressed and enter the code '4233' with the numerical keys.
3. Acknowledge the entry by pressing the key 'Acknowledge'.
The LEDs 'Manned' and 'Operating access' are flashing.
The indicator module displays '1_.xx' (xx = year)
4. Set the desired year with the numerical keys '1' and '2'.
5. Acknowledge the entry by pressing the zone key '1'.
6. Press the key 'Reset'.
The indicator module displays '2_.xx' (xx = year)
7. Repeat the steps 4 to 6, thus setting the day, the hours and the minutes.
8. Exit the settings with the numerical key '4'.
The settings have been stored.
The system is in normal operating condition again.
