Redefining Life Safety
Life safety used to mean the protection of buildings and
occupants against the threat of fire. From this grew an
industry that has undergone quantum leaps from relay
logic, to microprocessor-based technology, to peer-to-peer
networks with integrated audio annunciation – all in the
span of just a few years.
the EST3 network, security and access control not only enjoy
the speed and versatility of this proven life safety performer,
they also have the opportunity to share system resources
such as wiring, power supplies and off-premise communication. And that saves material, labor, and maintenance costs.
Big time.
While the protection of people and property has
always been, and will continue to be, the primary focus of
life safety efforts, few would argue that standards haven’t
played a major role in propelling the industry forward.
Agencies such as NFPA and UL have established life safety
as among the most stringently regulated and most closely
scrutinized industries in the world. And for good reason: with
lives and assets at stake, nothing can be left to chance.
Synergy promotes the sharing of resources. It
makes a simpler system. One that’s easier to service and less
trouble to program than several separate systems. EST3 has
always been an event-driven system that orchestrates all
fire alarm functions with extreme efficiency. With added
security and access control functions, the possibilities are
endless: unlock access controlled doors when there’s a fire
alarm; use integrated audio to issue audible intruder alert
messages – all through software, no extra relays or wiring
required!
Today the life safety industry is in the midst of yet
another quantum leap forward. Expanding into the arenas
of security, access control, and CCTV, many life safety
manufacturers are seeking ways to extend the life safety
function. But listing fire alarm functions in the same system
with security and access control has been regarded as a
Pandora’s Box of regulatory obstacles and resistance. As a
result, efforts in the past have concentrated on combining
separately listed systems by means of a user interface that
gives the illusion of total building control. To reinforce the
illusion, this patchwork approach has been referred to as
“integration.”
From the interfaced system point of view there is
good reason for keeping life safety separate from security
functions. To do otherwise would require an unprecedented
effort in terms of securing approvals and listings. It would
mean venturing into uncharted territory.
At GE Security we’re used to blazing trails. With the
introduction of the Synergy concept, we’ve managed to
accomplish what many said couldn’t be done: we’ve combined for the first time fire alarm, security, and access
control on a single, fully-listed network backbone. EST3 is the
platform used to carry this effort through, proving once
again that this exquisitely engineered system has both the
power and the flexibility to jump through all the regulatory
hoops, to negotiate all the listing minefields – and still have
lots left over for system expansion.
Was all this effort worth it? You bet. Operating over
vi
EST3 also elevates the reliability and survivability
of security functions to a level found previously only in
dedicated fire alarm systems. And when it comes to the
marriage between existing systems, nothing beats EST3. In
fact, the system is even backward compatible with BACnet,
the open-source communications protocol commonly used
to bridge interfaced systems together.
How does Synergy fit into this picture? Synergy is the
name used to describe GE Security’s method of combining fire,
access control, and security functions into one seamless
system. Synergy is not a new system, but rather the logical
extension of EST3 architecture into security and access control.
In addition to traditional fire alarm devices, products used to create Synergy include motion detectors,
security input modules and access controllers. These
connect on network wiring and draw power from the same
sources supplying fire alarm components. Now, with EST3,
dozens of Signature Series multisensor detectors can co-exist
with dozens of Signature Series motion detectors – on the
same pair of wires. This degree of system unity is simply
unprecedented.
EST3 is the first UL 864-listed fire and security
platform ever engineered. We’ve accomplished this by
tackling listing challenges head-on, not avoiding them. And
we’ve negotiated all the regulatory hurdles so you don’t
have to. The result is a whole that is much greater than the
sum of its parts: true Synergy.

Highly Flexible Applications
EST3 is a superbly adaptable life safety system, lending itself
to medium and large building applications. Cabinets are available with room for system batteries up to 65 Amp hours. With
EST3, one 24-volt battery supports up to four power supplies.
Each supply will support up to
7 Amp load. With four supplies,
28 Amps of current is available
— all backed up by a common
battery.
Powerful Networking
EST3 operates on a multi priority peer-to-peer token ring network. The multi-priority token ring gives EST3 exceptional response. Response time for all functions, including fire, security,
and access control, is less than three seconds across the network regardless of the total number of nodes. EST3 token ring
network configuration also permits vast distances between
nodes. The allowable distance between nodes on #18AWG
(0.75mm2) is 5,000ft (1,523m). With 64 nodes supported on a
network, the total network length is in excess of 300,000 ft
(91,400m), or nearly 60 miles! A single node supports up to 10
Signature loop controllers with 250 devices per loop, (2,500
points total per node).
Initiating
Devices
EST3 is a modular system uniquely designed to easily meet the
needs of standalone single node systems or multi-node networks. Fire alarm, security, access control and audio functions
use the same fundamental components, simplifying system
layouts. A powerful System Definition Utility program helps
define system operations in a fraction of the time required by
previous methods. Virtually all EST3 operating features are
software controlled. This gives EST3 great site flexibility and
ensures operational changes and upgrades will be possible
years after the initial installation.

Whether for fire alarm only, or for total life
safety protection including security and
access control, the EST3 network is the most
survivable system available.
EST3 uses distributed database technology, designed to survive the rigors of fire and
firefighting. In Class B configuration a single
break on the network wiring will isolate the
system into two groups of one or more nodes.
Each group of nodes continues functioning
as a peer-to-peer network, working with
their combined databases.
In Class A configurations a single break or
short on the network wiring causes the
system to isolate the fault. Network communication continues uninterrupted. If multiple
faults occur, the network re-configures into
multiple networks. This means a system
continues to respond to activations from
every node that can transmit and receive
network messages. Local responses always
execute because the local database resides
at each node.
Exceptional survivability extends to every
EST3 function, including security and access
control. These devices (highlighted in yellow)
reside on the network alongside fire alarm
components. They share wiring, power sources
and the inherent stability of a fire alarm
network engineered to meet standards far
beyond those of ordinary security systems.

Local Rail Modules
Local Rail Modules (LRMs) conveniently mount to the EST3 inner chassis, away from
high voltages. Each module features removable terminal blocks and simple plug-in
connectors. LRMs include Zoned Amplifiers, Signature Loop Controllers, Conventional
Hardwired Modules, Off Premise Signaling Modules, as well as the main CPU module.
Control Display Modules can be mounted on any LRM.

The 3-SSDC1 and 3-SDDC1 Signature Driver Controller modules provide an
intelligent interface between the 3-CPU(1.3) module and Signature Series
devices. Each module contains its own microprocessor used to coordinate,
process and interpret information received from and sent to Signature devices. Power and communications is received directly from the control panel
rail assembly. The 3-SSDC1 Single Signature Driver Controller module supports one Signature Data circuit, while the 3-SDDC1 Signature Dual Driver
Controller module supports two Signature circuits. Both modules occupy
one rail space in the fire alarm control cabinet and provide removable field
wiring terminals to aid installation.
Innovative design gives the 3-SSDC1/3-SDDC1 and Signature devices truly
“distributed intelligence”. Signature detectors and modules have their own
on-board microprocessor communicating with the loop controller in a fully
digital communication format. This increases the accuracy of the information coming to and from the loop controller by reducing the effects of capacitance and noise.

With decentralized intelligence much of the decision making moves from
the loop controller to the devices. Advanced fire detection algorithms processed within the Signature devices effectively end unwanted alarms. Environmental compensation and multiple sensing element decision making
operations are resident in the devices. Intelligent devices allow the Signature Controllers to execute communication and system functions with greater
speed and low baud rates, increasing the accuracy of information transmitted between the loop controller and devices.
To enhance survivability of the system the 3-SSDC1/3-SDDC1 supports a
standalone mode for Signature devices. Two catastrophic failure modes are
supported. If the 3-CPU(1/3) fails, the loop controller will continue to poll its
devices. If an alarm is detected it will be sent on the local rail communication bus and received by other local rail modules. A common alarm condition throughout the panel will result. If the local rail module (3-SSDC1/3SDDC1) fails, and a device (smoke or module) detects an alarm, specialized
circuitry will make the node aware of the alarm condition. The 3-CPU(1/3)
will communicate the alarm condition to the rest of the network. Having
multiple redundant modes is paramount in a life safety system.

Up to 30 photoelectric or 50 ionization smoke detectors
are supported per circuit. All circuits may be programmed
for non-verified or verified smoke operation. Ranges include open circuit, shorted condition, and high and low
impedance (relative to the main impedance setting). This
allows the use of various detectors of similar impedance,
as well as 4-state European alarm circuit operation.

IDC/NAC #7
The 3-IDC8/4 also configures for use with N.O. contacts
and supports supervised supervisory and monitor circuits with latching or non-latching operations. When the
monitor operation is used with the non-latching function,
the circuit serves as a supervised event follower. This
efficiently covers critical fan and damper operations.
Circuits can annunciate on the 3-LCD, control display
modules, or at any other display device on the network.

Flexibility built right into the IDC module allows connection
of normally open contact devices, and traditional 2-wire

The 3-OPS supports three separate off premises signaling modes of operation:
‘Old’ style reverse polarity operation has only a single reversed
polarity output. In the normal state the output is 24 Vdc current
limited to 6 mA. In the alarm state the polarity reverses. Should

‘New’ style reverse polarity operation allows the 3-OPS to output three
independent reversing polarity signals. These are alarm, supervisory, and

voltage to reverse. Should the central station detect a loss of voltage, the
condition is due to line failure. When configured for “new” style operation,
a set of trouble contacts is available.

Modem Communicator
The Modem Communicator is a two-way local rail module that performs a variety of
off-premise communications functions for the EST3 system unavailable on any
other system. The module has provisions for supervising two loop-start telephone
lines. It features a modular jack for telephone line connections, as well as database
download from a PC. The Modcom’s configuration and firmware can also be updated
from any network node.
Modcom series modules occupy a single local rail space and can be mounted in any
node on the network. Any EST3 Control/Display module can be mounted on the face
of a Modcom series module. Power for the Modcom is supplied by the EST3 system
supply.
Initiating
Devices
The Modcom provides an enhanced level of survivability in the event of a network
CPU failure by notifying the Central Monitoring Station of the failure and entering a
degraded mode of operation. In degraded mode, the Modcom can transmit a default
fire alarm message during a fire alarm condition.
Two versions of the Modcom are available:
3-MODCOM - This internal modem is a V.32bis 14.4K baud full duplex modem. The
modem permits the remote upload and download of system data via a telephone
line.
Each Modcom can buffer up to 500 events in its event queue. It reviews all
active events in the queue and identifies the highest priority event and dials the associated receiver. The Modcom then

The Modcom series has been designed for installation on the same phone
lines with other devices such as faxes and answering machines. The module
makes its first dial out attempt on either of the two phone lines that is not in
use. This prevents unnecessary interruption of calls in progress by the line
seizure relays. In the event that both lines are busy, the module seizes one of
the busy lines. A fixed DACT testing time can be set at an off-hour, e.g. 2:00am,
again minimizing interruptions.

Liquid Crystal Display Modules
LCD display modules provide system control and annunciation from any network node location at
which they are installed. Modules feature backlit high-contrast supertwist graphical displays and
mount to the local rail over the node’s central processing unit (3-CPU3). Simple-tounderstand LEDs and switches help the emergency user display information and
execute system commands with confidence.
3-LCDXL modules feature large screens that support 24 lines of text 40 characters in
length – enough space to display eight events simulaneously. It occupies four local
rail module spaces.
3-LCD modules support eight lines of text 21 characters in length. They occupy two
local rail module spaces.
EST3 networks can support any combination of 3-LCDXL and 3-LCD display modules.

Control Display Modules
EST3 Control Display modules provide the emergency user with the simplest of interfaces: lights
and switch controls. Control Display Modules install over local rail modules. There are five types
of modules available.
The first module supports simple zone annunciation; the second, zone annunciation with zone
disable; the third, alarm and trouble zone annunciation; the fourth, alarm and trouble zone
annunciation with zone disable. Typically, alarm zone annunciation appears on any of these
module types.
The fifth module is very adaptable to system requirements for audio or remote equipment control. Each contains 18
LEDs and 18 switches. And each group of three switches has a latching-interlock to support operations that must be
kept separated. The interlock is under software control so only one switch is active at a given time.

FireWorks™
FireWorks is a family of software and hardware options designed to work
in concert with GE Security life safety and property protection systems.
FireWorks provides a simple user interface, taking what could be an overwhelmingly large amount of information and presenting it in an easy-tounderstand format. It does this by dividing major system functions into
easy-to-manage quadrants that make the system very intuitive to use
because information is presented logically.
The FireWorks four-quadrant display provides easy
access to fire, security, access control, and CCTV functions. FireWorks operates with Windows 2000 or Windows XP operating systems.
For FireWorks specifications and ordering information, please
refer to catalog sheet 85006-0048.
Each of the other three quadrants provides one specific piece of information that relates to the event highlighted in the Event Quadrant. Related
information may include event action information (specific tasks the user
may need to perform in response to the event), or information about the
area where the event has taken place (any hazardous materials present
in the area, etc.). Still images, CCTV, video, audio messages and graphical
maps may also be presented to aid in the understanding of an event and
how it should be managed.

To further enhance usability, FireWorks is event driven. This greatly increases the user's ability to deal with system events by eliminating the
confusion sometimes experienced when systems present all information
at once. FireWorks automatically prioritizes the events for the user in an

lowest priority event is displayed last. This allows the user to quickly
determine which events warrant the most immediate attention.

Envoy Graphic Annunciator
ENVOY graphic annunciators and smoke control panels are designed to present
complex status and control information in an easy to understand package. The
design of ENVOY products permits users to rapidly determine system status and
easily operate associated system controls. The addition of system LCD annunciators and remote microphones can turn ENVOY into a complete fire command
station.
ENVOY graphic annunciators display system information using high intensity
LEDs mounted behind the smoked Plexiglas panel that displays the artwork. The
Envoy EST3 FACS Smoke Control Series replaces the Plexiglas graphic panel
with a gloss black finished steel panel. High contrast white graphics are placed
on the panel along with the required switches and LED indicators, integrating
the element of control directly “into the picture.” Switches and LEDs can be
mounted virtually anywhere on the graphic display itself. White artwork and
text on a dark background is
standard. Colored artwork is available as an option, to enhance
building areas or individual zones.
A variety of LEDs and switches are
available to meet any display and
control requirement.

Configuring EST3 audio is a matter of selecting components for installation in standard
fire alarm cabinet assemblies. EST3 uses zoned amplifiers. This reduces wire runs and
space needs at a central location. Audio control equipment and zoned amplifiers use
the same system power supplies as fire alarm components. All these components are
supported by a common standby battery. Where multiple nodes make up the system,
a single pair of wires carries eight channels of digital audio between nodes.

Card Reader Controller
The Card Reader Controller (CRC) provides the power and electronics
required to monitor and control a single door with both entry and
exit readers. The unit is designed to mount in close proximity to the
door it controls, however it can be located remotely from the readers
in retrofit applications. The unit is housed in an off-white Cycoloy®
housing. Its attractive design allows for surface mounting in exposed areas.
All access decisions are made locally in the CRC. The CRC’s nonvolatile memory can hold schedules and holiday information for up
to 8,000 cardholders. The CRCXM has additional memory, and supports 36,000 cardholders. The memory also retains the last 5,000/
20,000 events for logging purposes. This history information is
uploaded at the request of the access control database for use in a
variety of reports.
The unit provides 12 Vdc @ ½ amp for door strike or magnetic lock requirements. An integral standby battery can
provide up to four hours of service for applications that use electric door strikes. An integral tamper switch is also
provided.
Two input circuits are provided for security devices. These are typically used to monitor door position and request-toexit devices. Input circuits can also be configured as a “buzz in” switch to manually unlock the door, or as security input
points.
A handicapped feature output is provided to operate mechanical door openers with extended door-open times. This
output is activated when a cardholder with the disabled option activated presents his card to the reader.

Remote Diagnostic Utility
The Remote Diagnostic Utility (RDU) is a Windows®-based communications
program used to remotely access and download status and sensitivity information from EST3 fire alarm systems. The RDU can accommodate over 1,000
individual sites in its database.
The RDU is ideal for multiple system owners and those responsible for systems
located over a large geographic area. In the event of Trouble, system status
can be quickly determined with a single phone call, before dispatching service personnel.
The RDU computer communicates with the panel over telephone lines. At the
remote panel location, a modem is connected to one of the panel’s serial ports
and a conventional dial-up telephone line. Alternately, the RDU computer
can be directly connected to the panel when visiting the panel site.
System Status reports provide a detailed listing of the state of all devices at
the time the data was downloaded. This information becomes a valuable troubleshooting
aid and provides an insight into a panel’s condition, even before the panel door is opened.
Alarm, trouble, and disabled/test filters are available to customize the data appearing on a
status report.

• missing device addresses; and,
• changes to the wiring in the circuit.
Most Signature modules use a personality code selected by
the installer to determine their actual function. Personality
codes are downloaded from the controller during system configuration and are indicated during device mapping.
Fast Stable Communication – Built-in intelligence means less
information needs to be sent between the device and the
Signature Loop Controller. Other than routine supervisory
polling responses, Signature devices only need to communicate with the controller when they have something new to
report . This provides very fast control panel response and
allows a lower baud rate (speed) to be used for communication on the circuit. The lower baud rate offers several advantages including:
• less sensitivity to circuit wire characteristics;
• less sensitivity to noise glitches on the cable;
• less emitted noise from the analog wiring; and,
• twisted or shielded wiring is not required.
Testing & Maintenance – Automatic self-diagnosis identifies
when a Signature device is defective and issues a trouble
message. The user-friendly maintenance program shows the
current state of each device and other pertinent information.
Single devices may be turned off temporarily, directly from
the control panel.

includes:
• device serial number, address, and type;
• date of manufacture, hours of operation, and last

• number of recorded alarms and troubles; and,
• up to 32 possible trouble codes which may be used to

Analog information from equipment connected to Signature
devices is gathered and converted into digital signals. At the
heart of each Signature Series device is an on-board microprocessor that analyses these signals and decides whether
or not to input an alarm. The power of this approach, known
as distributed intelligence, provides four important benefits: self-diagnostics and history logging; automatic device
mapping; stand-alone operation; and, fast , stable communication.

EST’s Signature series products are intelligent devices.
Intelligent devices have drastically lower communications
requirements than those of sensor type devices. Because of the
low Signature communications rate there are no special wiring requirements for Signature
circuits. This permits Signature devices to use existing wiring, as long as the wiring is in good
shape, free of electrical noise, When existing wiring is used, the Signature devices will
properly map the circuit, function as designed, and provide overall network response time
of less than three seconds. For new installations, twisted-pair wiring is all that is recommended.

Signature Series
input/output modules are extremely flexible and
Plug-in UIOs
with motherboard
powerful devices that gather analog information from the slave devices
connected to them and convert this data into digital signals. They are available in models that mount in standard one- or two-gang electrical boxes, as
Standard two-gang mount
well as versions that plug into UIO motherboards.
The actual function of each module is determined by its installer-selected
personality code. This is downloaded to the module from the Signature Loop Controller during system configuration.
Because they are intelligent devices, all decisions are made at the module. This allows lower communication speed
but very fast control panel response time and less sensitivity to line noise and loop wiring properties. As a result,
twisted or shielded wire is not required.

Genesis chimes and chime-strobes produce a pleasing mellow tone. When steady (non-stroked) voltage is applied, the chime
automatically pulses at 60 strokes per minute, or may be field-configured for temporal output. When installed with a GIM Signal
Master Module, the chime may also be field-configured for coded operation, which enables the chime output to match the rate
that voltage is applied to the circuit. The chime’s 79 dBA (peak) output level makes this device suitable for many applications.
Chimes may be set for low dB output with a jumper cut that reduces sound output by about 5 dB.

The Signal Master is a simple-to-use accessory that adds enhanced
features to Genesis and Integrity strobes and Horn-Strobes. It is a dualpurpose module that provides UL 1971 required precision synchronization
for connected Integrity and Genesis strobes, and independent control for
connected Genesis Horns over a single pair of wires. Two methods of Horn
control are available: traditional Horn silence; or, normally-closed contact.
Both methods may be used to silence Horns without turning off strobes on
the same circuit. Two models are available. The Genesis “piggyback” model
doesn’t require a separate electrical box. It simply snaps to the back of the
first G1 signal on the circuit. The remote mount model mounts in a North
American 2½ inch (64 mm) deep one-gang box.

GE Security hazardous location devices provide reliable life safety protection and emergency signaling in areas
where atmospheres could become harsh or explosive. All hazardous location devices are UL rated under the full
range of classifications set out in the National Electrical Code.
The following classification definitions are an interpretive summary based on the 1996 edition of the National
Electrical Code (NEC, NFPA 70). Refer to the latest editions of NFPA 497M, NFPA 70 and the UL Hazardous Location
Equipment Directory for current and more detailed information. For more information on NEMA classifications, refer
to NEMA Standards Publication No. 250.
Hazardous Location Classifications
Classes
Class I - Hazardous Gases. Class I locations are areas in which flammable
gases or vapors are or may be present in the air in quantities sufficient to
produce explosive or ignitable mixtures.
Typical Class I Hazardous Areas
• Spray painting and finishing areas
• Utility gas plants
• Petroleum refining production plants
• Petroleum dispensing locations
• Dry cleaning facilities
• Dip tanks containing combustibles or flammable liquids
• Plant facilities extracting solvents
• Inhalation anesthetics areas
• Process facilities manufacturing pyroxylin type plastics
Class II - Hazardous Dusts. Class II locations represent areas that are
hazardous due to the presence of combustible dust.
Class III - Hazardous Fibers. Class III locations have easily ignitable fibers
or flyings present, but not likely to be suspended in air in quantities sufficient
to produce ignitable mixtures in the atmosphere.
Groups
Class I and II locations are divided by the NFPA into Group
designations identifying specific gases, vapors and dusts by
characteristic similarities that relate to specific equipment
construction requirements. Class III locations are not divided into
separate group designations.
Class I Groups
Group A. Atmospheres containing acetylene.
Group B. Atmospheres containing hydrogen, fuel and
combustible process gases containing more than 30 percent
hydrogen by volume, or gases or vapors of equivalent hazard
such as butadiene, ethylene oxide, propylene oxide, and
acrolein.
Group C. Atmospheres such as ethyl ether, ethylene, or other
gases or vapors of equivalent hazard.
Group D. Atmospheres containing acetone, ammonia, benzene,
butane, cyclopropane, ethanol, gasoline, hexane, methanol,
methane, natural gas, naphtha (petroleum), propane, or gases or
vapors of equivalent hazard.
Class II Groups
Group E. Atmospheres containing combustible metal dusts,
including aluminum, magnesium, and their commercial alloys, or
other combustible dusts whose particle size, abrasiveness and
conductivity present similar hazards in the use of electrical
equipment.
Door Holders
& Relays
Typical Class III Hazardous Areas
• Textile mills
• Woodworking plants*
• Furniture manufacturers*
• Cotton gins
• Cotton seed milling plants
• Flax plants
• Carpet manufacturers
* Except if wood flour (dust), which is Class II Group G, is present
The Location Classes are broken down by the NFPA into
Divisions 1 and 2, defining different levels of risk. In general, the
risk of there being a hazardous presence of flammable/
combustible/ignitable materials is higher for Division 1 than for
Division 2. The specifics differ between the three classes (I, II and
III). Equipment suitable for Division 1 is also suitable for Division 2
locations.
Hazardous Location
Devices
Typical Class II Hazardous Areas
• Flour mills
• Feed mills
• Grain elevators and grain handling facilities
• Aluminum manufacturing and storage areas
• Magnesium manufacturing and storage areas
• Coal preparation and handling facilities
• Starch manufacturing and storage areas
• Confectionery plants
• Pulverizer sugar and cocoa manufacturing, and storage plants
• Spice grinding and storage plants
Divisions
Group F. Atmospheres containing combustible carbonaceous
dusts, including carbon black, charcoal, coal, or dusts that have
been sensitized by other materials so that they present an
explosion hazard.
Group G. Atmospheres containing combustible dusts not
included in Group E or F, including flour, grain, wood, plastic, and
chemicals.

Electromagnetic Door Holders
GE Security electromagnetic door holders keep doors open until signaled by
the fire alarm system, a heat detector, a smoke detector, or an electrical
switch. Door holders should be installed wherever doors may be effectively
used to confine smoke and fire, or where the release of a self-closing door from
a remote location is required. Fail-safe operation is an inherent feature of
these door holders. If power fails, doors are released automatically, but may
be opened or closed manually at any time. All units are free of moving parts,
are self-contained, and require no maintenance. Door holders have a holding
force of approximately 15-25 Lbf (66-111N).

SPDT Relays
Single-pull/double-throw relays are ideal for applications where local or remote
contacts are required for control of electrical loads. They are suitable for use with
HVAC, temperature control, fire alarm, security, energy management, and lighting
control systems. Each relay position contains a high-intensity LED which, when
illuminated, indicates the relay coil is energized. Individual relay circuits may be
snapped apart from standard four- or eight-position modules, and are also available
in a single-circuit configuration. The common power to each relay position is bussed
on the printed wiring board, which permits power to be connected only once per
multi-position module.
Single-Voltage Manual Override Relays
MR-600 series relays provide SPDT, 10-Amp contacts with manual override capability by means of an ON-AUTO-OFF
switch. The relay requires a 24Vac or 24Vdc power source supplied by the controlling system. With the switch in the ON
position the power relay is energized. With the switch in the AUTO position the relay is allowed to operate as signaled
by the controlling system. With the switch in the OFF position the relay cannot be energized.

Your Strategic Partner enjoys a special relationship with GE
Security that ideally positions their team for delivering the most
sophisticated life safety systems for the best overall cost.
Each Strategic Partner is hand-picked from among the
most qualified Engineered Systems Distributors today’s life safety

demonstrated excellence. As a result, you can be assured that
the installation and configuration of these systems will realize
their maximum potential in terms of performance, flexibility, and
economy.
