ManDown Sensor
1. Introduction
The ManDown Sensor has a built-in tilt device, which can detect if the person holding it is in
a horizontal position, such as lying on the floor.
The sensor will automatically send an alarm when its position corresponds to horizontality
after a certain time. Pressing its central bed button will activate a help call at any time.
It can be held, for instance, as a necklace by an elderly person or as a safety device by a
lone worker in a hazardous environment.
The ManDown Sensor will be part of a social alarm system. It can be associated with a
Carephone receiver, linked to a social alarm call center through the telephone line, or with a
NurseCall system.

Fig. 1 ManDown Sensor
2. Description
The ManDown Sensor can be delivered with an operational frequency of 434 MHz or 869
MHz. It is equipped with a LED indicator that will flash every ten seconds to show that the
sensor is active. This LED indicator will flash green if the battery is ok or red if the battery is
low. Pushing the central red button will send a help call to the social alarm system, followed
by a short beeping sound.
Caution!
A help call is sent only after the central red button has been released. The user should be
aware that pressing the central red button must be short. If the central red button is being
pressed longer that five seconds, the sensor will be turned off, and no help call will be sent.
See chapter 4.2. Turning off the sensor.

3. Compatibility of the ManDown Sensor with Social alarm
systems
The different types of ManDown Sensors should always be associated with a corresponding
social alarm system, according to the following table.
Type of ManDown Sensor
ManDown 869 MHz, Bosch RF protocol
Social alarm system
Carephones 3050, 3100, 50, 52, 52+
ManDown 869 MHz, TeleAlarm protocol
Carephones 10 & 12
ManDown 434 MHz, TeleAlarm protocol
All TeleAlarm NurseCall systems
4. Operating
4.1. Starting the sensor
When the ManDown Sensor is off, the user only has to press the central red button to turn it
on. A slow beeping sound will then confirm that the sensor is active.
Notice!
No help call transmission will take place during this operation.
4.2. Turning off the sensor
ƒ
Press the button for about five seconds
ƒ
A beeping sound is emitted during two seconds
ƒ
During these two seconds, release the button and press it a second time,
ƒ
The sensor is then turned off
ƒ
This last step will be confirmed by a slow beeping sound
It is always possible to turn off the sensor, even when the help call button is deactivated.
Notice!
A help call will be activated only after pressing the help call button for less the five seconds
and releasing the central red button. This means that during the procedure of turning off the
sensor, no alarm will be generated.
If the central red button is being pressed and released less that five seconds or pressed
longer than seven seconds, a help call will be generated. See chapter 2 Description.

ManDown Sensor
4.3. Detection mode
Detection by the ManDown Sensor can be decomposed into two periods of time.
1) Tilt Detection
When the sensor detects a tilt of more than 60 degrees, it will start its internal chronometer
for approximately ten seconds.
If the sensor comes back to a vertical position within these ten seconds, the chronometer is
reset.
2) Pre-Alarm
If the sensor does not come back to a vertical position within ten seconds, a pre-alarm starts
accompanied by a beeping sound. This period of time is factory-set and lasts approximately
thirty seconds. The pre-alarm is cancelled if the sensor comes back to a vertical position or
if the help call button is pressed.
This pre-alarm may be suppressed by making a solder bridge. See Fig.2. Interior view of a
ManDown Sensor.
4.4. Repeating the alarm
After a fall, as long as the sensor detects a horizontal position, the alarm will repeat itself
after an average period of time of two minutes and thirty seconds.
4.5. Deactivating the help call button and the pre-alarm
Making a solder bridge allows to deactivate the help call button or to suppress the pre-alarm.
In this case, during the automatic tilt alarm, the sensor remains silent. During all help calls
made by pressing the button, the sensor will always issue a beeping sound.
No bridge: with pre-alarm
Bridged: without pre-alarm

Bridged: help call button deactivated

5. Programming the ManDown Sensor
To program a ManDown Sensor within a Carephone social alarm system (e.g. Carephones
10, 12, 3050, 3100, 50, 52, 52+) or within a NurseCall system, follow the procedure described for the system you are using. As the ManDown Sensor can be considered as a standard transmitter, the system will recognize it during the programming step. Please refer to the
manual of the corresponding social alarm system.
6. Maintenance
6.1. Safety instructions
Caution!
There is a danger of explosion if the replacement of the battery is not
performed correctly!
ƒ
ƒ
Replace the battery only by an identical or equivalent type.
Dispose of the used batteries at an appropriate recycling facility.
Although battery replacement may be done by non-specialized personnel, the manufacturer recommends that it should be performed by your
local dealer.
Caution!
The ManDown Sensor contains highly sensitive electronic components.
It should always be opened in an ESD (Electro Static Discharge) protected environment, with respect to the following precautions:
ƒ Discharge yourself from electrostatic loads by touching a grounded
conductive surface before opening the unit.
ƒ Avoid touching conductive parts and metallic surfaces if not absolutely necessary.
6.2. Storage
Short term storage (less than two weeks)
Deactivate the sensor.
Long term storage (more than two weeks)
Remove the battery and store the ManDown Sensor protected from direct sunlight, moisture
and dust.
