MR-2900 Installation Manual
1.0 Technical Information
1.1 General
The MR-2900 Fire Alarm Control Unit provides capability for up to 24 Input Circuits, 8 Polarity Reversing
Bell Circuits, network capabilities (with use of an MR-2910 Network Board) and 4 General Purpose Form
"C" Relays as well as system operated relays for alarm, trouble and supervisory indication. If the MR-2900
is ordered with a printer, it is ordered under the panel number MR-2920.
The Control Unit can be networked to provide additional input circuits, visual zones, bell circuits and relays.
Up to 40 Units (Control and/or Annunciator) can be connected to form the network. The network is a Style
7 (Data Communications Link, Redundant (DCLR)) loop.
All programming is done through the LCD and keypad. Input circuit programming and special features,
day/night mode, etc., are done from an externally generated database, while system parameters are
programmed from the LCD and keypad. For programming information, refer to LT-2011 MR-2900
Programming Manual.
The basic MR-2900 Fire Alarm Control Unit consists of the:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Main Circuit Board (MR-2931)
Terminal Board (MR-2936)
Annunciator Strip (MR-2902)
Power Supply (MR-2905)
Door Assembly (MR-2972)
Back Box (MR-2971)
1.2 Main Circuit Board
The Main Circuit Board (MR-2931) provides system controls and visual indications, and contains the
system processor, programming port, printer port and non-volatile memory for system firmware. Software
is installed on the main board for critical functions such as programmable logic and timing functions and
non-critical functions, such as custom zone and devices messages. All jumpers on the board are for
diagnostic and test purposes. There are 6 LEDs in the middle of the right edge for diagnostic purposes.
The visual display consists of a series of LEDs for common system indication of power, alarm, supervisory,
and trouble. An LED clock display is provided to display real time. The flashing colon of the clock provides
visual indication of system processor operation. The clock also displays dashes if a major error/change
occurs. When this happens, the system requires a Hard reboot. A Hard reboot is done by pressing and
releasing the button inside the top of the inner door assembly.
The Circuit Board has an 80-character alphanumeric LCD. It provides descriptions for inputs, display of
archived events, first/last device in alarm, custom messages, etc. The keypad is used to scroll through the
display.
There are three connectors on the bottom of the Main Circuit Board, an audio output jack, a 9-pin service
terminal port and a 25-pin printer port. The ports are discussed below. The audio jack produces various
tones for use in walktesting of the system.
1
Communication Ports
The Control Unit has 6 communication ports available:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Port #1- network (Proprietary)
Port #2- network (Proprietary)
Port #3- general purpose (Proprietary)
Port #4- service terminal (RS232 - DB9)
Port #5- printer interface, Parallel (IBM/Centronics - DB25)
Port #6- serial printer interface (RS-232)
Ports 1 to 3 use the terminal strip on the Terminal Board for connection. Ports 4 and 5 use the connectors
mounted on the bottom of the Main Circuit Board. Port 6 uses a connector on the top of the Terminal
Board. It is for the optional factory installed MR-2920 strip printer.
The system network ports, Ports 1 and 2, allow for the networking of units. Up to 40 units (Control and/or
Annunciator) can be networked together. The network wiring is a Style 7 (DCLR) loop layout. An MR-2910
Series Network Board is required by each Control Unit to use these ports.
Port 3 is available for different uses depending upon the operating program loaded in the panel. Different
uses require different variants of the operating program. Typical uses are a central station connection or
remote LED annunciation of system status. The operation of this port is software defined and requires the
use of an MR-2109-x communications board. The MR-2109-3 Driver is for communication to MR-2614,
MR-2644, and the following dialers MR-2900-DACT and MRDL. The MR-2109-4 Driver is for
communication to the MV-2700 voice system.
The service terminal port, Port 4, permits the downloading and uploading of custom software, such as
device messages and I/O functions. It is intended for temporary connection to provide supplementary
information during servicing of the panel.
The parallel printer port, Port 5, connects to any standard parallel printer. The system prints every
occurrence as it happens. It is intended for temporary connection and can be used for system
commissioning and testing by producing a printed log of received events. This can then be checked
against a log of tests performed to confirm operation.
The serial printer interface, Port 6, is for the optional factory installed strip printer.
Note: If either of the printers or the service terminal printer screen is stalled, it causes the other printers
to stall.

modules and bell circuits
1.4 Input Circuits
There are seven classes of conventional input circuits
supported by the Control Unit. Not all classes are supported by
all the Conventional Input Circuit Modules. See Table 1: Input
Circuit Module Compatibility on page 4 to determine which
circuits are supported by each module.
Conventional Input Circuits
•
•
•
•
•
•
"Class A" - This is a 4 wire supervised circuit
supporting normally open contact initiating devices.
Two-wire smoke detectors are not supported by this
type of circuit. A "Class A" circuit requires two of the
input circuits, one for the high loop and one for the low loop.
"Class B" - This is a 2 wire supervised circuit supporting only normally open contact initiating
devices and using a 470Ω End-of-Line Resistor, model EOL-471. Two-wire smoke detectors
cannot be used on this type of circuit.
Smoke Detector - This is a supervised circuit supporting two-wire smoke detectors only. Both
"Class B", using the 3.9KΩ Resistor (EOL-392), and "Class A" wiring is available depending upon
the Input Circuit Module used (see 1.5 Input Circuit Modules on page 4). Contact initiating devices
cannot be used with this type of circuit. A short is reported as a trouble, not as an Alarm.
Smoke Detector and Contact Device - This is a supervised circuit supporting two-wire smoke
detectors and normally open contact initiating devices. This circuit is wired the same as a Smoke
Detector circuit. Shorts on this type of circuit are reported as an Alarm, not as a trouble.
Normally Open - This is an unsupervised 2-wire circuit. Normally Open circuits are always
Supervisory circuits. This circuit is listed by UL for connection to other control equipment through
less than 20 feet of conduit.
Normally Closed - This is an unsupervised 2-wire circuit. This circuit shall not be used to monitor
fire alarm or supervisory initiating devices. This circuit is listed by UL for connection to other
control equipment through less than 20 feet of conduit.
Note: The Control Unit shows spurious alarms and troubles due to any mismatches between the
programmed circuit classes and the actual field wiring.
3
Addressable Input Circuits
There are two classes of addressable input circuits supported by the Control Unit:
•
•
"Class A" (Style 6) - This is a 4 wire circuit supporting addressable detectors and modules. It
requires two input circuits, one for signal out and one for signal return. Up to 99 detectors and up
to 99 modules can be connected to the circuit.
"Class B" (Style 4) - This is a 2 wire circuit supporting addressable detectors and modules. Up to
99 detectors and up to 99 modules can be connected to the circuit.
Note: Applicable codes and standards as well as good engineering practices must be considered with
regards to the number of addressable devices connected to one addressable circuit. Isolation
modules (MRI-500X) should be used whenever more than one fire zone is protected by one
addressable circuit.
1.5 Input Circuit Modules
There are five types of Input Circuit Modules. Table 1 circuit classes are supported by each conventional
module. All Input Circuit Modules control eight of the input circuits, one of circuits 1 to 8, 9 to 16 or 17 to 24.
Any of the Input Modules can be used to control circuits 9 to 16, and circuits 17 to 24. Addressable Input
Modules do not physically fit in the location for circuits 1 to 8.
Ground fault conditions occurring on the input circuits are indicated as to the circuit of origin.
Conventional Input Modules
•
Model MR-2928 - supports all seven classes of conventional circuits. Smoke detector circuits are
current limited to 80 mA while all other circuits are current limited to 10 mA.

MR-2900 Installation Manual
1.6 Terminal Board
Field connections are terminated on the MR-2936 Terminal Board, which in addition to terminal blocks
contains a portion of the circuitry for output circuits and relays. The Terminal Board includes connections
for 24 input circuits, 8 supervised polarity reversing bell circuits, 4 general purpose Form "C" relays, 3
system Form "C" relays and 2 auxiliary power outputs. There is a five-pin terminal block on the bottom of
the Terminal Board for connection of the optional factory installed printer.
There are two versions of the Terminal Board. The MR-2926 Terminal Board has 8 Class B bells circuits.
The MR-2925 Terminal Board has 4 Class A bell circuits. The two versions are identical otherwise.The
MR-2936 supports 8 Class B bell circuits and 8 Class A bell circuits when a MR-2937 Class A Convertor
Board is installed.
The bell circuits are rated at 1.5 A @ 24 VDC. They are power-limited and protected with solid state fuses.
Note: Maximum system loading and stand-by battery power must be considered when determining
actual bell loading.
A 10 K end-of-line resistor, EOL-103, is required for supervision. Bell circuits are supervised for open, short
and ground fault conditions. The panel activates bell circuits in two modes: Evacuation, which activates the
bells continuously or with the temporal pattern as specified in ANSI S3.41 and ISO 8201 Audible
Emergency Evacuation Signal; Alert, which activates the bells in a repeated 12 s on and 3 s off.
The general purpose Form "C" relay operation is program defined. The relays have a power factor of .35
and are rated at 0.6A @ 30VAC / 2.0A @ 30VDC. The system defined Form "C" relays are for Alarm,
Supervisory and Trouble indication. These relays have a power factor of .35 and are rated 1.0A @ 24VDC
/ 0.5A @ 30VAC. The Trouble relay is normally energized so that loss of both AC power and battery power
is indicated. The N.O. and N.C. markings on the Trouble relay refer to this energized state.
The operation of the general purpose relays and bell circuits is totally program defined. It is possible to
program the activation of circuits to any zone, group of zones, device, group of devices and to further
inhibit the operation for a specifiable period of time. Any relays not programmed for use in either the
database or LCD menu are available for auxiliary power reset, i.e. the relay toggles for a programmable
time when the Reset key is pressed provided the programmed time is a value other than zero.
The auxiliary power outputs provide 24 VDC @ 135 mA each. They are supervised for shorts only. Any
load attached to the auxiliary power outputs have to be considered when calculating stand-by battery size.
1.7 Annunciator Strip
The Annunciator Board (MR-2902) contains 24 sets of zone indicating LEDs. Individual LEDs are provided
to display alarm, supervisory and trouble conditions by zone. The LED functions, from the left, are: Alarm
(red), Supervisory (amber or yellow) and Trouble (yellow). The LEDs flash on status change and go to
steady on acknowledge. The trouble LEDs turn on for both open circuit and ground fault with the specific
fault indicated on the LCD.
5
1.8 Power Supply
The Power Supply (MR-2905) is rated at 8A unregulated, providing the system with primary DC power. It is
complete with a battery charger rated at 2 A and battery supervision circuitry. The power supply and
battery are located within the control unit back box.
Battery supervision uses true dynamic supervision circuitry to simulate a load condition approximately
every 90 seconds to ensure that the battery is capable of handling the system load requirements on loss of
primary power.
If the battery voltage drops below 19V it is disconnected to protect against damage from a deep discharge.
A second compartment adjacent to the power supply compartment is provided for 120 VAC terminations.
Note: Never disconnect or reconnect the batteries while AC power is off.
1.9 Enclosure
The enclosure for MR-2900 Control Unit consists of a back box complete with power supply, inner door
assembly complete with main control board, and outer door assembly. The back box and door assemblies
are fabricated from 1/16" steel. The outer door includes tempered glass window, hinge, and lock assembly.
The back box provides necessary "knock out" type openings for conduit entry.
The back box dimensions are 14 2" Wide x 27 2" High x 4" Deep. The outer door assembly is 16 7/8"
Wide x 29 2" High x 1 ¼" Deep. The details and dimensions of the enclosure and the MR-2920 Control

Figure 1: Basic Network Communication Flow
The basic MR-2900 Control Unit can be networked to other Control Units and Annunciator Units to provide
additional input circuits, relays, bells and LEDs. Up to 40 units (Control and/or Annunciator) can be
networked together.
The network is a Class A/Style 7 DCLR loop layout (see diagram). Each unit on the network requires the
MR-2910 Network Board. Programming, servicing and testing are done at each individual unit. One
Control Unit is designated, using the downloaded database, the Master Control Unit for the network. The
Master Control Unit displays the Alarm List for the entire network if configured to do so. The Alarm List is
programmable such that events may be archived locally on each individual panel or the archived
collectively at the Master Panel. Please see the Programming Manual for further details.
There are four different MR-2910 boards available:

MR-2900 Installation Manual
For NFAPA Style 7 connection of the network, port 1 of node 1 is connected to port 2 of node 2. Port 1 of
node 2 is connected to port 2 of node 3. Port 1 of node 3 is connected to port 2 of node 4. Therefore, in
general, port 1 of node N is connected to port 2 of node N+1. The last node of the network is handled
differently.
For example, assume the system has a total of 30 nodes. In this case, the last node of the system is node
30. Port 1 of node 30 is connected to port 2 of node 1. Using this pattern the entire system would be
connected according to NFPA Style 7 for SLC connections.
Notes:
• Synchronized NAC devices can only function properly when driven by synchronization modules
provided by the NAC device manufacturer. Please consult compatibility list within this manual.
• Follow the instructions provided with the synch modules for proper interconnection of these
synch modules to the panel and to the NAC circuits.
• Synchronization across the network is not provided. Synchronization can only be done on a per
sync module basis. Therefore, only NAC circuits connected to sync modules on the same node
can be synchronized.
• Addressable NAC circuits cannot be synchronized.
1.11 Optional Integrated Printer
The MR-2900 Control Unit can be ordered integrated with the MR-2920 Printer. The MR-2920 Printer is a
20 column thermal printer. The Control Unit and Printer come in a larger cabinet
(MR-2973) with the Printer in a compartment adjacent to the Control Unit. A compartment for 12 Ah
batteries is located below the Control Unit and Printer.
The printer uses thermal paper. A Paper Advance button is on the right side of the Printer Compartment
Cover. If the paper runs out, the printer stops printing. To start printing after installing paper, hold the Paper
Advance button for a few seconds. Paper Out is reported to the Control Panel.
The Terminal Board, Power Supply Board and Toroid are in the main compartment of the back box in the
same locations as they are in the regular back box. The backbox dimensions for the BB-2920B enclosure
are 22 1/16” Wide x 27 ½” High x 5½” Deep. The outer door dimensions are 24 3/8” Wide x 29 1/2 High x
1 ¼” Deep.

fully opened without removing the cables. Ensure that the
cables are not twisted and is seated properly in the
connectors. These cables must be attached before the unit
is powered (see Figure 25).
Figure 25: Ribbon Cable Installation
Note: Inserting or removing the ribbon cables while the unit is powered can result in damage to the unit.
Standard Network Wiring
Standard Network wiring uses a twisted pair of wires
between each panel (see Figure 26). The COM1 of each
Unit is connected to the COM2 of the next Unit. MR-2944
Annunciator Unit are connected the same as the Control
Unit. Wiring is not polarity sensitive. Network wiring is
power-limited. Only COMLINK 1 is supervised for ground
faults.
Figure 26: Standard Network Wiring
COMLINK 2 is supervised for ground faults through its
connection to COMLINK1 of previous attached panel.
Note:
• Ensure that only one COM2 is connected to each COM1. If two or more are connected, the
network segment does not work.
• The following table shows the maximum wiring capacitance for the various baud rates supported
by the Network using the standard MR-2910. The maximum allowable line resistance is 680
ohms.

the panel by 4 wires; 2 for power and 2 for
communications. The communications wiring is
polarity sensitive. An example of the wiring is shown
in Figure 28. Up to eight of each type of annunciator
and either one dialer or one reverse polarity module
can be connected to the MR-2900. If more than one
MR-2614 is used, the 3.9kΩ resistor across the MR2614 terminals should be removed from all but the
last MR-2614. The MR-2900 panel requires that the
MR-2109-3 communications board be installed. The
maximum length of communications wiring is 900m
(3000 ft) using 22 AWG. The maximum length of
power wiring is 300m (1000 ft) using 18 AWG.

MR-2900 Installation Manual
5.1 General
Batteries are designed and manufactured for a specific use. "Standby" is one of these uses. They are rated
according to their ability to deliver a steady current for 20 hours ("20 Hour Rating"). A 10 Ah battery is
unable to deliver 10 A for 1 hour, however it does deliver 2 A (500 mA) for 20 hours. A car battery is
designed to deliver "cranking" power for a short time, (a few hundred Amps for a few minutes).
Unfortunately, fire alarm control panels need both of these characteristics, that is, driving a heavy bell load
for a relatively short time, at the end of a 24 hour standby current drain. This protection necessitates
certain over sizing.
Regardless of the standby calculation and tables, the battery must be at least 150% of the bell load. e.g. A
4 A total bell load necessitates at least 6 A hour battery (in terms of 20 hour rating).
Note: The MR-2900 Control Panel is capable of driving a bell load of 8 A maximum. This restriction
must be considered when laying out a bell system..
The standard battery options available for the MR-2900 Control Unit are:
a) 4 AHr internal
b) 7 AHr internal
c) 10 AHr internal
d) 17 AHr external in a separate battery cabinet
e) 24 AHr external in a separate battery cabinet
f) 52 AHr external in a separate battery cabinet

9.0 Warranty & Warning Information
9.0 Warranty & Warning Information
9.1 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 end-users 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 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 Secutron products contain software. With respect to those products, Secutron 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. Secutron shall not be liable for any delays,

MR-2900 Installation Manual
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 hearing-impaired 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.
