System Overview
The Cerberus PRO Fire Safety System ─ a new dimension
in fire protection from Siemens Industry − Fire Safety ─ is
a technologically advanced fire-and-life-safety system.
Each Cerberus PRO system provides easy operation via
its push-button soft keys; a backlit, 2” ─x─ 4-3/4” LCD
screen; as well as a (4) four-way navigation push
button ─ all located in the upper portion of each panel.
Through the use of its unique multiprocessor ‘Network’
design – along with its ability to utilize intelligent
detection devices – Cerberus PRO epitomizes a flexible
and highly configurable fire system. SureWireTM
addressable-loop technology is supported by Cerberus
Cerberus PRO is ideally suited for small and mid-market
applications by providing 50, 252 and 504-point
addressable fire-alarm-control-panel (FACP) networking.
In conjunction with these new and improved FACPs is a
state-of-the-art line of intelligent detectors. For example,
the Multi-Criteria Fire / CO Detector [with ASAtechnologyTM]
is cutting-edge technology for specialized applications ─
such as carbon-monoxide detection ─ compared to
standardized detectors, while the Photoelectric Smoke
Detector uses microcontroller circuitry and surface-mount
technology for maximum reliability.

microprocessors for the Cerberus PRO FACPs (Models FC922
and FC924).
The Model FCM2018-U3 and Model FCM2019-U3 modules
provide multi-use capability for each end-user to efficiently
‘Acknowledge’ events; to quickly control the notificationappliance circuits (NACs) of the corresponding FACP, and to
permit a manual reset of the respective system. Detailed
information about the nature and location of the events can
also be displayed, via a 2”─x─ 4-3/4”, backlit LCD screen.
Models FCM2018-U3 and FCM2019-U3 contain the sitespecific program configuration created in the customconfiguration tool (Model FX901-U3). The controller in each
interface module provides all system logic and supervision.

Periphery Boards
The periphery boards (Models FCI2016-U1 and FCI2017U1) encompass the key components for operating the
Cerberus PRO panels (Models FC922 and FC924).
Each module operates and monitors input-device identity;
as well as controls the signaling-line circuits that
communicate with smoke detectors and other field
devices (i.e. ─ FDnet).
Each periphery board is equipped with two (2)
programmable ‘Class B’ (Style Y) or ‘one (1) Class A’ (Style
Z) NAC, providing 24VDC, nominal @ up to 3A per circuit
of audible / visual notification appliances.
The periphery boards mount directly on the enclosure
back boxes of the Model FC922 and Model FC922
Cerberus PRO panels. Models FCI2016-U1/ FCI2017-U1
provide two (2) parallel auxiliary powered, short-circuitprotected connections (regulated 24VDC, 1.5A max) that
supply power to external devices or modules. The system
periphery boards also include a Bell Follower terminal

Any of the accounts can send Alarm, Gas Alarm,
Supervisory, Trouble, Reset, or Trouble-restore data (or any
combination) as required. Each DACT can perform the
automatic 24-hour test required by NFPA, Chapter 4.
Fire Terminal Board
Fire Terminal Board (and equipment)
The Fire Terminal Unit and equipment connects to
FCNET network that can be configured for systemglobal view or specific-panel local view. This
configuration allows the operator for system control to
‘acknowledge’ events; control system NACs, and reset
the system.
The Fire Terminal Board and equipment allows for
connection to the Remote Peripheral Module (Model
FCA2018-U1) and / or the Remote Terminal Displays
(Models FT2014-U3 / R3; FT2015-U3 / R3).
A Cerberus PRO FACP can be controlled and operated
from the Fire Terminal Boards, which use large, lighted
buttons that prompt users to the next correct, available
system-operation event: Acknowledge, Silence,
Unsilence, Audible or Reset.)
The Fire Terminal Boards contain a large 6" display (1/4
VGA) monochrome LCD display, touch screen and LEDs
for displaying system status. An audible will sound

SAFEDLINK / FCnet Network Module
SAFEDLINK / FCnet Network Module
The SAFEDLINK network module (Model FN2001-A1) is
used to network up to 16 FACPs and the fire terminal
unit (Model FT2050), via the FCnet system bus. The
SAFEDLINK network module is plugged into the
Operating Unit (Models FCM2018-U3 or FCM2019-U3).
Model FN2001-A1 supports ‘peer-to-peer’ networking
between the following systems:
ƒ Model FC922
ƒ Model FC924
ƒ Model FT924
The Model FN2001-A1 connects to system-bus inputs and
outputs, and the module has ground-fault monitoring as
well as an integrated degrade-mode function.
Redundant networking is accomplished with one (1)
network module per panel [simple loop trouble]. There is
electrical isolation between the system bus and the FACP.
The Fire Terminal Boards contain the site-specific
program configuration which is created in the customconfiguration programming tool (Model FX901-U3).

the existing status of a Cerberus PRO FACP. A LED will
illuminate for any given Alarm, Supervisory and
Trouble Cerberus PRO-system event. A 2” ─x─ 4-3/4”
LCD screen will give details of the event in
alphanumeric form. The display screen can be scrolled
to reveal additional events. Optional remote-systemcontrol capabilities are also available.
When an event has been triggered to the FACP, the LCD
will show the following:
Event type and zone
Time of the event
Custom message for that zone
Usage of the zone
’Unacknowledged’ or ‘Acknowledged’ event
The display has an event-initiated backlight feature
that also operates when any buttons are pressed.
The Model FT2014-series has a button used to silence
the local sounder. The Model FT2015-series has three
(3) control buttons for acknowledging events,
silencing audible circuits and resetting the system.
Additionally, there are three (3) user-programmable
buttons available. The Model FT2015-series has a key
switch that enables the control buttons to operate.
The remote display terminals are remotely connected
to the Cerberus PRO FACP, via the RS─485 interface.
The Model FC922 and FC924 Cerberus PRO panels
require the Model FCA2016-U1 RS─485 module to
provide communication to the remote display
terminals. Model FCA2016-U1 supports Style 4 or Style
6 wiring. Up to eight (8) modules can be supported on
a RS─485 bus.

enclosure and can operate in a daisy-chain configuration.
The connection between single-mode fiber-optic modules
uses two (2), high-quality duplex 9/125 fiber-optic cables
and ST-style fiber connectors. The duplex fiber-optic cable
has two (2) cables in a single shield similar to an electrical
zip cord. Each segment of the fiber network can be up to
almost 10 miles.
For ‘Class B’ installations, each FACP or terminal at
either end of the daisy chain use one (1) duplex cable
for connection to the next networked panel or terminal.
