Power Supply requirements
230Vac +10 - 15% 50Hz
Maximum Power consumption 50VA
Fuse rating - T125mA
The mains supply should be carefully wired using flat twin and
earth of not less than 1mm2 between the mains connector block
and an externally mounted secure switched fused spur outlet
with contact separation of at least 3mm. The switched spur unit
should be fused with a 2A fuse.
61640610 issue 8_6/07_Zircon 1 & 2 zone fire panels
Activated by using volt free N/O contacts between the -ve of
AUX 24V output and the CLASS CHANGE output.
Cabling
Unless otherwise recommended, and taking into account voltage
drop, not less than 1mm2 is recommended. Sounder circuits
should use cable that is fire proof. All cabling should be earthed
to the metal back box via the cable gland. Conductors carrying
fire alarm power signals should be separated from conductors
used for carrying other systems.

Installation information
Mounting instructions
Installation of this product must be carried out using the
information given in this leaflet by a qualified electrician.

BATTERY
&
Before installation ensure the electrical
supply is isolated.
Installation of this product must be carried out in accordance with
the requirements of BS5839 Pt1 and EN54.
Mounting location considerations
The fire alarm control panel should be mounted near to a
permanent, low fire risk, Entry / Exit, for easy access by the
Emergency Services. The panel should not be mounted in direct
sunlight, or in a place where the ambient temperature is above
30 ºC (86 ºF).
Mains must not be capable of being accidentally disconnected
and the isolating switch should clearly state:

Figure 1 Panel with top cover removed
In order to minimise the installation time, it is strongly
recommended, that the following procedure is followed:
1
Remove plastic fascia by removing the two screws from the
top plastic cover.
2
Disconnect the two secondary transformer wires from the
terminals marked ‘AC~’ on the PCB. These are located on
the right-hand side of the fire panel.
3
Remove the two screws that hold the bottom plastic cover in
place, then lift away from fire panel housing. Store cover
assembly in a safe place to prevent damage during initial
installation.

Using the back box as a Drill template, mark through fixing
positions, prepare the fixing holes, and fit onto wall using an
appropriate mounting system.
Ensure the back box is not contaminated with drilling debris,
e.g. brick dust, as this can adversely affect the electronic
circuitry.
5
Prepare cable entries via the 20mm knockouts provided in
the top and rear of back box using appropriate glanding
system.

The fire panel is supplied with End Of Line Resistors for the zone
and sounder circuits, these must be transferred to the last device
in the circuit.
The End Of Line Resistor must be replaced with Active End Of
Line device if removable smoke/heat detectors are used on the
zone circuit.. Please note these units are polarised.

To operate this fire alarm control panel, it is necessary to gain
access to the “Supervisor Mode”, to do this enter the four digit
security password code, on the yellow push buttons. This
security code should have been given to the responsible person
on system hand over.
After entering the correct code the “Supervisor Mode” LED will
illuminate.

Test Zone
This feature allows one person to check the detectors and
sounders without having to return to the panel during the testing
routine. When the appropriate zone is in test mode and a
detector is activated, the sounder circuit/s will operate for a few
seconds and then automatically reset.
1
Enter the access code to get into “supervisor mode” if not
already entered.
2
Hold down the ‘ADVANCE’ push button for at least
2 seconds until you hear a double bleep.
3
The “Test” LED will light and the Zone 1 Fault LED will flash
at a fast rate (faster than the fault warning flash rate) the
flashing LED at this stage indicates that the zone is not in
test!
SOUNDER ON/OFF
4
If the panel is in alarm the sounders will sound, the sounder
circuits may be silenced by pressing this button. If the sounders
are silent by pressing this button they will be activated.
If you do not wish to test this zone then press ‘ADVANCE’ to
move on to the next zone.
5
To put the zone into “Test” press ‘SELECT / LAMPTEST’
(repeated pressing of this button will toggle the zone in and
out of test mode!).
6
After you have pressed the select button you will see that the
zone is now constantly lit, this indicates that the zone is now
in test!
7
Once the site tests have been completed you may find that
the keypad access timer has elapsed and that you will have
to repeat points 1-4 to get to the appropriate zone in test.
8
To cancel the test mode and return a zone back to normal
operation simply press ‘SELECT / LAMP TEST’ to toggle the
zone from constant to flashing.
The panel will time out of “Supervisor Mode” if the ‘RESET’ button
is pressed or 20 seconds have elapsed since the last button was
pressed.
The following functions can all be employed in the
“Supervisor Mode”.
RESET
This will cause all faults and fires conditions to be cancelled, if a
fault still exists then it will re-appear within 10 seconds of this
reset.
MUTE PANEL
To silence the panel’s internal buzzer press ‘MUTE PANEL’ push
button. The panel will continue to beep at a reduced rate until the
condition causing the buzzer to sound is rectified or reset.
SELECT - LAMP TEST
Hold down ‘SELECT / LAMP TEST’ push button for a minimum of
two seconds. Release once the test is complete.
Once you have returned the zone/zones to normal operation you
can then press reset to exit supervisor mode. Note: Pressing
reset whilst a zone is in test will not revert the panel to normal
operation!

To disable the sounders press the ‘SELECT/LAMP TEST’
push button to toggle the LED from flashing to constant.
Once the site tests have been completed you may find that
the keypad access timer has elapsed and you will have to
repeat point 1b to get to get back to sounder disable menu.
To cancel the disable mode and return the sounders back to

Maintenance Information
All the components of this panel have been selected for the
intended purpose, and are expected to operate within their
specification when the environmental conditions outside the panel
comply with class 3k5 of IEC 721-3-3.
The battery has manufacturers recommended life expectancy of
3-5 years. We recommend that this control panel and all
associated equipment be periodically tested and inspected in
accordance with the relevant British Standards for the installation
and servicing of fire alarm equipment.
