Fire Alarm Systems | FCP‑500 Conventional Automatic Fire Detectors
FCP‑500 Conventional Automatic Fire
Detectors
▶ Modern, ultra-flat design
▶ Matches the surrounding decor by using color toning
inserts
▶ Smooth, easily-cleaned detector surface
▶ Innovative fastening mechanism
▶ High reliability
FCP‑500 Conventional Automatic Fire Detectors satisfy
the most demanding aesthetic requirements owing to
their flat design, which offers flush ceiling mounting and
the option of color matching.
The FCP‑500 is available as a scattered light smoke
detector or as a multi-sensor detector with an additional
gas sensor. The respective versions of the detectors are
available in white or transparent with color inserts.
Functions
The smooth, flush-installation surface means the FCP‑500
detectors can be installed in areas with high aesthetic
requirements. In addition, the fire detectors are suitable
for areas with heightened dust exposure.
The detectors and trim rings in the "transparent with color
inserts" version are always supplied complete with
reversible printed color rings, which offer a choice of
16 colors for individual color matching.
Sensor technology and signal processing
All detectors in the FCP‑500 series are equipped with two
optical sensors and a pollution sensor. The FCP‑OC 500
multisensor detector contains a gas sensor as an
additional detection channel.
All sensor signals are constantly analyzed by the internal
signal evaluation electronics and are linked with each
other through algorithms.

By linking the optical sensors and the gas sensor, the OC
detector can also be used in places where the work
carried out gives rise to small amounts of smoke, steam or
dust. The alarm will only be triggered automatically if the
signal combination corresponds with the detector’s
characteristic diagram. Consequently, a very high
reliability against false alarms is obtained.
Optical sensor (smoke sensor)
The optical sensor (1) operates according to the scattered
light method. The LEDs (3) transmit light at a defined
angle into the scattered light area (7).

The basic measuring principle is CO oxidation on an
electrode and the measurable current that arises from
this. The sensor signal value is proportional to the
concentration of gas.
The gas sensor delivers additional information to
effectively suppress deceptive values.
Depending on the service life of the gas sensor, the
FCP‑OC 500 detector switches off the C sensors after five
years of operation. The detector will continue to function
as an O detector. The detector should then be exchanged
immediately in order to be able to keep using the higher
reliability of detection of the OC detector.
Pollution sensor
The contamination level on the detector surface is
continually measured by the pollution sensor (6); the
result is evaluated and indicated.

In case of fire, the light is scattered by the smoke
particles and strikes the photo diodes (2), which
transform the quantity of light into a proportional
electrical signal.

Further performance characteristics
Various operating states are indicated on the detector by
means of a clearly visible two-color LED. In the event of an
alarm, the LED flashes red.

Contamination of the detector surface leads to active
adaptation of the threshold value (closed-circuit value
correction).

Interference effects from daylight and commercial lighting
sources are filtered out with an optical daylight filter and
by the use of electronic filtering and phase-locked
rectification (ambient light stability: glare test
DIN EN 54‑7).
The various light-emitting and photo diodes of the sensor
are individually controlled by the detector electronics.
Consequently, signal combinations are produced that are
independent of each other and ideally suitable for the
detection of smoke, which makes it possible to
differentiate between smoke and interference agents
(insects, objects). In addition, the time characteristics
and the correlation of the optical sensor signals for the
fire or interference detection are evaluated.
The innovative detector locking, which operates on the
ballpoint-pen principle, provides fast and simple insertion
and replacement of the detector. We recommend the
specially developed FAA‑500‑RTL exchanger device,
especially in the case of high installation heights.
To allow convenient detector testing, the FAA‑500‑TTL
test adapter with magnet and additional service
accessories is available.

makes it possible to detect errors in the analysis
electronics and the LEDs.
Installation/Configuration Notes
Chemical sensor (CO gas sensor)
•
The gas sensor (4) detects mainly the carbon monoxide
(CO) that is produced by a fire, but it also detects
hydrogen (H) and nitrogen monoxide (NO).
Can be connected to:
- Conventional Fire Panel BZ 1012/1016/1024/1060
- Universal Fire Panel UEZ 1000
- Universal Fire Panel UGM 2020

- UEZ 2000 LSN, BZ 500 LSN, FPA‑5000 and
FPA‑1200 via appropriate interfaces
The detectors and detector bases can be used
together with the „Rotaris” lamp by Philips.
The FCP‑OC 500, like the FCP‑O 500, is planned
according to the guidelines for optical detectors (see
DIN VDE 0833 Part 2 and VDS 2095).
The detectors must be installed exclusively in the
FCA‑500 bases provided. In addition, the detector
base must be installed in an FAA‑500‑BB ceiling mount
back box or in FAA‑500‑SB surface mount back box.

For flush ceiling mounting with FAA‑500‑BB:
The false ceiling may have a maximum
thickness of

of at least 110 mm is required.
FCP‑500 detectors are not intended for outdoor use.
A hemispherical space with a radius of 50 cm must
remain free below the detectors.

Care must be taken to ensure that neither people,
larger animals, plants nor any objects intrude into this
area and that no parts of the detector surface become
covered.
The detectors may only be installed in a position
which is out of arm's reach. We therefore recommend
a minimum installation height of 2.70 m.
The detectors may not be installed in rooms in which
data is transmitted by means of high-intensity infrared light (e. g. in rooms with IR systems for
interpreters).
The detectors must be mounted so that they are not
exposed to any direct sunlight.
A minimum distance of 50 cm from lamps must be
maintained. The detectors may not be mounted in a
cone of light from lamps.
The bases are equipped as standard with a spring
which is suitable for installation of the detector in
false ceilings. When the detector is installed in
concrete or wooden ceilings, these need to be
replaced by the stronger springs FAA‑500‑SPRING
with red markings.
Maximum permitted air speed: 20 m/s
Country-specific standards and guidelines must be
observed during the planning phase.
