Potential electric discharge: Take precautions to avoid personal injury.
Lead batteries: There is risk of explosion in case of short-circuit and a risk
of corrosion in case of spillage.
Source of external electromagnetic radiation: The analogue system's
functions can be interfered with by external radiation from motors, radio
antennas, etc. Protect the installation as required.
Warning: Pay attention whenever you see this symbol. It can prevent
damage and accidents.
1.3 The FP1500 analogue system
The FP1500 has been designed using leading edge technology to guarantee high
reliability and ease of use. Its loop structure enables the user to define and group each of
the connected elements into zones. This makes for easy expansion of the installation
without having to reconfigure the system.
Sensors and analogue input modules may be connected to the loop to collect information
and warn of any risk situation. In the event of an alarm, the panel activates the output
modules, sounders and relays. Each of the devices occupies a unique address and
therefore are easily identified and managed independently.
The maximum cable length is 2 km using a 1.5 mm² diameter cable to ensure proper
operation of the system.
A FP1500 fire panel may be configured through its keypad and LCD display, with a
detailed, easy-to-navigate menu or through an external PC. Additionally there is a
windows-based graphics application that runs on a PC for an enhanced visual control and
monitoring of the whole installation.
The main electronic board has, in addition to the loop outputs, two serial ports (RS232
and/or RS485), two monitored sounder outputs, two voltage-free contact relays and an
auxiliary 24 VDC output.
Any kind of peripheral may be connected to the RS232 port for short-distance
communications (less than 15 meters). A PC, a printer, a modem, a GSM modem or an
ethernet network connection module may be installed.
The RS485 port supports communications of up to a maximum distance of 1.2 km and
allows the interconnection of fire and repeater panels.
Aritech offers two versions of analogue addressable fire panels:
FP1500/1: supplied with one loop
FP1500/2: supplied with two loops

1.4 Safety precautions and warnings
It is important to bear the following warnings in mind to avoid possible mishaps or
accidents.
•
The fire panel is quite heavy once the batteries are installed. Use resistant fastening
elements.
•
The system must be installed as far away from other cables as possible to minimize
the risk of external interference. The use of stranded, shielded cable is
recommended.
•
Cable with a minimum section of 1.5 mm² and 250 VAC cable is recommended. The
cable length must not be longer than 2 km.
•
The fire panel must be connected to an external bipolar magneto-thermal switch.
•
Do not work on any connections without first disconnecting the external magnetothermal switch. Do not use the mains fuse to cut the power supply.
FP1500 Installation, Configuration and Commissioning Manual

•
Disconnect the mains (110 VAC or 230 VAC) and the batteries before connecting or
disconnecting any of the internal circuits of the fire panel.
•
The proper way of supplying current to the panel is:
First connect the mains magneto-thermal switch (110 VAC or 230 VAC), and then
connect the batteries.
Not following this procedure may cause a small discharge and damage the system.
•
Once the installation is complete, use a tester to ensure that there are no short
circuits in the lines before connecting the mains.

3 INSTALLATION OF THE SYSTEM
This chapter describes the installation process step by step, from fixing the fire panel to
the wall to connecting each of the possible components of the system.
Follow each of the listed procedures carefully.
3.1 Installation tools
For installation:
A flat screwdriver for connectors and a Phillips screwdriver for the star-headed screws of
the front casing, wire-stripping pliers and, multi-meter (tester) is required.
For fixing to the wall:
Appropriate drill bits, plugs and screws for the type and thickness of the wall where the
fire panel is to be mounted is needed
For configuring FP1500 panels and analogue sensors:
The PG700 Sensor Programmer is a portable unit for assigning addresses to 1500 Series
sensors. This unit has two operating modes:
Mode 1: Permits viewing the address of the detector by inserting it into the socket and
modifying it.
Mode 2: Permits viewing the analogue value of the detector.
The KSP701 is an optional serial cable for loading the configuration using the
configuration software. For running the software a PC with Windows 98 or later is also
required.

3.2 Panel positioning
For optimum operation and maintenance of the fire panel, several factors must be kept in
mind when deciding on the installation position.
The location must be protected by the fire detection system. Temperature should be
controlled between 5 and 40º C and the relative humidity must not exceed 95% (without
any condensation).
The location must be sheltered to avoid possible jolts or vibrations and away from cable
runs that could cause interference in the communications.
3.3 Fixing the fire panel to the wall
General recommendations
Place the fire panel at an approximate height of 1.5 m in a place with easy access and
where the light indicators are easily distinguishable.
Ensure that, once the fire panel is attached to the wall, the front casing could be removed
without any obstacle.
Bear in mind that the weight of the fire panel together with the batteries is quite high so
select the correct size of plugs and screws to hold it.
Installation steps
1. Place the metal box on the wall, orientate it correctly with the help of the level and
mark with a pencil the position of the 3 or 4 screws.
2. Remove the box from the wall and drill the holes and place the plugs.
3. Place the fire panel on the wall and attach it with the right screws.
Do not use the fire panel metal box as a guide for the drill.
Before fixing the frame to the wall, make the cables holes you require. Do not drill holes
in the fire panel box in places other than those indicated, and avoid shavings or pieces of
removed casing dropping inside the panel. This could damage the electronic circuits. If
you require, you may use PG11-type cable adapter.
3.4 Selecting a language
The FP1500 allows the user to choose the desired language. Take the sheet of language
inserts that is supplied with the panel, select the desired language and cut out the
corresponding inserts with a pair of scissors.
Insert each of the cards into the corresponding position on the front panel according to
the supplied number.
The sheet contains blank cards for configuring languages that have not been included.
The user may customize these cards with the desired language.
FP1500 Installation, Configuration and Commissioning Manual
11
3.5 Electrical connections and cables
The fire panel must be connected to the mains through an external bipolar magneto-thermal
switch. The mains cable must have a minimum section of 1.5 mm² and the voltage must be
110 VAC or 230 VAC. To avoid potential short-circuits and electromagnetic interference the
mains cable must be kept away from the loop connection cables and from the
communication ports.
To protect the connections, the use of PG11-type cable adapters or seals is recommended.
This way the cable is firmly fixed to the fire panel and, moreover, the use of pressuresensitive clamps to fix the cables to the housing is highly recommended.
If the system is exposed to an electromagnetic environment, the use of ferrite as close as
possible to the connection is recommended. (See drawing)
Once the fire panel is mounted on the wall, the connections can be started. The loops,
the mains and the additional elements are connected to the main board through the holes
on the top. The hole located away from the rest is for the mains.

For your safety, the order in which the power is reconnected must be: Mains first, then the
batteries. Do not connect the fire panel to the mains until you have completed the
commissioning procedure (See chapter 5).
Connect the mains on the outside of the cabinet and with an adequate earth connection. The
earth cable should be the longer of the three cables.

Mains fuses
The FP1500 fire panel can be supplied from a 230 VAC or a 110 VAC supply. The mains
fuse must be changed depending on the voltage.
•
For a 110 VAC power source, insert the fuse into the left fuse holder.
•
For a 230 VAC power supply, insert the fuse into the right fuse holder.
See section 7 Technical specifications for fuse locations and characteristics.
Do not use the mains fuse for connecting and disconnecting the fire panel from the
mains. Use the bipolar magneto-thermal switch.
Connecting the batteries
1. Place the batteries in the space reserved for them at the bottom of the fire panel box.
2. Connect the cables taking the colour codes into account (red positive, black negative).
Connect the battery bridge cable that is supplied with the package, between the two
batteries and the two cables that come out of the main electronic board to each of the
batteries as shown in the picture.

Connecting a loop
The loop structure is a closed (Class A) circuit. All the elements are connected to two
wires that exit from the fire panel and return back to the fire panel again.
The cable used in the sensor loop installation has to be at least stranded with a 1.5 mm²
diameter. It should be shielded to avoid external interference. See section 7 Technical
specifications for full cable recommendations.
The maximum length of the loop is 2 km. The resistance of the loop cable must be less
than 44 Ohm and the maximum capacitance of the line must be less than 500 nF.
•
Connect each detector and module to the loop along the cable run (See sections
3.5.4 and 3.5.7). Once the loop has been installed, connect it to the fire panel:
•
Connect the loop to the terminal corresponding to loop 1 or 2.
FP1500 Installation, Configuration and Commissioning Manual
14
•
Connect the output wires to points O+ and O- and the return wires to R+ and R-. The
colouring of the cables helps to distinguish between (+) and (-).
•
Connect the ground cable or shield to the ground terminal. Be careful to connect only
one of the ends, either the output (O) or the return (R) one.
It is important to have continuity in the shield at each of the connections of the loop.

If necessary, the fire panel has an auxiliary 24 VDC output. It allows powering of
additional elements that cannot be powered from the loop. It is also possible to connect
such elements to an independent power supply.
3.5.4
Connecting sensors
The analogue addressable sensors are the elements of the system that gather the
information. There are two types of detection elements: Thermal, which is activated by
temperature changes; and smoke (ionisation and optical), which is sensitive to smoke.
They all have a microprocessor that enables them to manage themselves and to
communicate with the fire panel.
Up to 125 sensors can be installed on the loop. Each of them occupies a physical
address on the loop from 1 to 125.
The number of sensors installed on a loop must be in accordance with local
regulations.
(It is recommended that you carefully read the technical specifications and the assembly
and installation manuals included in the packing of every product.)
Sensitive to smoke:
DI1552: Operates by the imbalance of its ionisation chambers in the presence of smoke.
DP1551: Operates by light dispersion due to the presence of smoke (Tyndall effect).
Sensitive to temperature:
DT1553: It is activated when a fixed temperature level is exceeded or when the
temperature rate-of-rise surpassed a pre-set rate.
Combined action:
DP1551T: Optical-thermal dual sensor that intelligently combines a photoelectric and two
thermal measurements to detect an ample spectrum of types of fire.
FP1500 Installation, Configuration and Commissioning Manual
16
All sensors must be installed in clean environments. During construction and refurbishing
work, they must be protected to keep them from being damaged and/or contaminated.
When you have identified the detector type that better fit the protection need, the
installation process can start. Installation is the same for any kind of sensor:
PG700
Portable unit for all types
•
Install the connection base DB304 (See Instruction Manual).
•
Once base DB304 is installed, connect it to the loop. The two wires from the system
are connected to the base and continuity should be given to the shield.
•
Assign the address to the detector using the PG700 portable address programmer
(See section 3.1 or the Instruction Manual). Detector address can also be assigned
through the fire panel keypad.
•
Lastly, mount the detector in the base.

Connecting modules
The modules are elements connected to the loop that handle the system's input and
output information. Up to 125 modules can be installed on a loop, with each occupying a
logical address from 128 to 252.
Some of the modules need additional external power. There are two possibilities for
providing this supply depending on the needs of the installation:
•
Through the auxiliary 24 VDC output located in the upper part of the main board.
The cable with the auxiliary 24 VDC runs parallel to the loop's cable.
•
An external source that provides the necessary 24 VDC, located as close as
possible to the module.
Before connecting the loop line to the panel, use a tester to verify that there is no connection
in any way with the auxiliary 24 VDC lines.

Connecting sounders
The FP1500 has 2 sounder outputs internally, identified as SND1 and SND2. On each of
these outputs, supervised sirens may be connected with a total consumption of 300 mA.
The installation and connection procedures are as follows:
1. Install the cable connecting any polarized siren (or with a corresponding diode) as
required (without exceeding 300 mA).
2. Place a 4K7 / ¼ W end-of-line resistance in last siren.
3. Connect the circuit to the control unit through the terminals on the main board
identified as SND1+ and SND1-.

The EN54 standard requires a normally activated (fail-to-safe) fault relay. One of these
relays may be used for this function (See section 4.1.7 for the Configuration of relay output).
3.6 Mounting optional elements
In the FP1500 control unit, the only optional element is the RS485, which requires the
corresponding IC (KAL785/701).
When installing the optional elements, the panel must be disconnected from the power
supply. Disconnect the external magneto-thermal switch and the batteries before inserting
the IC.
For the RS485 connections, you must use cable that is stranded. Screening is
recommended.
The FP1500 has two serial communications ports on board. Port 1 is allocated to the
RS232 and is incorporated in the main board at the factory. Port 2 is allocated to RS485
and this is optional.
For the RS485 option to be available, the KAL785/701 IC must be installed in the
corresponding slot on the main board.

4 SYSTEM CONFIGURATION
The basic configuration of the system can be performed completely from the control unit.
However, if an external PC is available, the process is made easier.
From the control unit control panel:
•
Adjust the general parameters
Select a language
Standby and general fault message
Set time and date
•
Configure loops
Auto-search
From an external PC with configuration software:
•
Edit zone
•
Edit texts
•
Edit logic lines
•
Allocate logic lines to loop elements
Once the FP1500 system has been configured and all its elements have been installed,
the commissioning process begins. This configuration enables each element to be
identified and carry out its function appropriately in the system.
4.1 Basic configuration
When the system is connected for the first time, the control unit does not detect any of
the connected elements. The configuration is carried out through screen menus. Move
around these menus using the arrow keys and the numeric keys available on the front
face of the panel.
To confirm a selection, press the < ENTER > key.
To change a set value, press the < 9
> key.
To start the configuration, type in the code 9898 corresponding to level 3 (See section 2.2
regarding access levels).

E.g. Option 1<Loop 1>, select option 1 <Zones>
This screen indicates the addresses of all the
elements in this zone.
E.g. The devices of Loop 1 with addresses

When the new values have been inserted,
confirm with the <ENTER> key. The changes
are made instantly.
If you press <#>, the operation is cancelled and
the screen returns to the previous menu.
Pressing the <ENTER> key automatically
moves on to the next zone to be defined until
there are no further devices to be allocated.
Once all the elements have been allocated,
press the <ENTER> key to introduce the texts
for describing the zones.
Each zone may have a description allocated to
identify the area it covers. This text appears on

It is possible to programme alternative threshold
or pre-alarm and alarm limit values for each
detector (smoke or heat) as long as the control
unit software has the variable sensitivity mode
enabled.
E.g. There is a detector on Loop 1, address 26,
that requires that, between 06:30 and 17:45 a
pre-alarm should be set to 50 and fire alarm to
65, whilst for the rest of the day the levels
should return to the default values (pre-alarm at
60 and fire alarm at 70)
How is it configured?
During the element configuration, press the
< 9 > key and select option 4 <Alarm

or heat sensors only.
The control unit requests the alternative level it
will use during the day period (e g 6:30 to

simply change the value.
When introducing the new value, the
programme asks for the alternative value for the
pre-alarm threshold. To change it to 50, simply
introduce the new value.
The pre-alarm threshold value
must be lower than the alarm
threshold otherwise the control
unit readjusts the input value
automatically.

The screen displays the current analogue value
of the detector. As we have varied the
alternative values, the programme shows us
said values on the screen during the inspection
and configuration function of the detector.
Move forward to the next devices and adjust
them as required (See section 4.2.1 for Day
Mode and Sensitivity settings).
Configuring sounder outputs
The analogue detection system can activate:
• Two sounder outputs from the main board of
the control unit (SND1 and SND2).
• Sounders connected directly to the loop or
through sounder modules.
Sounder modules and loop sounders use the
address segment of the modules (from 128 to
252). The siren configuration is the same for
both methods.
Once the auto-search has been carried out on
the devices on the loop, by default the system
allocates the activation of all the sirens
immediately for any fire alarm in any zone.
Each output can be allocated a logic event.

Logic event: This is the response generated by
an event in the installation. It activates, or
otherwise, the output elements (sirens and
relays) and determines the mode in which they
react.
Each logic event is allocated a different
identification number. There are 40 logic events
for the FP1500.
In this example, we shall allocate a logic line
number to a set of zones so that the output
elements are activated in a predetermined way.
E.g. We can define Logic Event 1 to work in
such a way that Zone 1 and Zone 2 trigger the
output. Zone three does not trigger it and Zone
4 triggers it with a delay.
This combination for the triggering of a siren is
called logic event programming. In the FP1500,
40 logic events can be defined.

Configuring relay outputs
The relays are configured in the same way as the sirens, with a few exceptions:
The main board relays may be configured to trigger with the <Trigger sirens> key,
activating the option <With evacuation – Yes>.
The EN54 standard requires the fault relay to be permanently activated, and it is deactivated
in fault status.
The 1 or 2 relay of the main board can be programmed to act in this way changing the
initial mode options of the relay and programming the appropriate event. By default relay
number 2 is set for general alarm and relay number 1 is ser for fault relay (normally
energized). The fault event is named 901.
E.g. A main board relay that is set to activate in initial mode [inverse], will turn OFF when
the alarm is activated. This will be opposite to others set to initial mode [normal] that
is turned ON when there is an alarm.
For this configuration to be effective:

Day mode setting
The control unit can be pre-programmed to operate in certain ways at certain times of the
day:
Delayed day mode
The control unit can be configured to delay the triggering of outputs in any zone. During
the allocated delay period, the control unit receives an alarm warning. A complete fire
condition is executed if no action is executed in a time specified as a response to the
warning.

With Alert 1, the control unit warns of an alarm
situation. The operator must press
<RECEIVED> before the Alert 1 time,
otherwise the full alarm is generated. If the
control unit is on Received within the time,
Alert 2 begins. Alert 2 begins when Alert 1 is
triggered. For this reason, Alarm 2 must be
adjusted to a time longer than Alert 1, to give
the user time to investigate the cause of the
alarm and take the appropriate decisions. If
<RESET> is not pressed before the Alert 2
time, a full alarm situation is generated.
3. Once the times have been adjusted for
alerts 1 and 2, the control unit asks which
zones must be used in delayed mode. The
number of indicated zones shall act in
delayed mode or otherwise, depending on
whether [Yes] or [No] is allocated.

4.3 Graphics software
The FP1500 analogue fire detection system has additional software that enables the
management and control of the installation via PC.
This software is made up of three components:
•
Plan Editor: a tool for creating a diagrammatic plan with the situation of each of the
components of the system in the installation. In this way, the identification in the
event of an alarm is faster and more efficient.
•
Events Viewer: record of the graphics software. It draws up a list of all the
movements made on the control unit.
•
User application: once the control unit has been configured and the installation plan
has been edited, this application enables full visual control of the system. Please ask
your distributor for more information.
FP1500 Installation, Configuration and Commissioning Manual

5 COMMISSIONING OF THE SYSTEM
Finally, the analogue detection system has been installed. Before powering it up, you
must check the control unit works correctly. Follow all the steps set forth in this chapter.
5.1 Checking the system
Before supplying power to the control unit, check all the following points.
•
Check that the control unit has been correctly mounted (See section 3.3).
•
Check the loops, ensuring that there is no cut or short circuit. Use the tester to check
the continuity of the line.
•
Check the connections of the main board output. Check that it is correctly installed
and working. (See section 3.4)
•
Check that the power voltage is 230 VAC or 110 VAC with a voltmeter and the
batteries have a voltage of 24 VDC.
•
Ensure that the sounder lines are connected with the correct polarity and that they
have the 4K7 end of line resistors. (See section 3.4.4)
•
Check that the RS485 lines (if used) have the 150-Ohm resistance at the ends).
•
Check the correct installation of all the elements. (See section 3.4.3 to 3.4.7)
•
Review the optional components (cards, memories, etc.) (See section 3.5)
Check that there are no short circuits between the Auxiliary 24 VDC output and the loop
communication lines.
5.2 System power up
An external bipolar magneto-thermal switch must protect the power supply input.
Once all the connections and installations have been checked, the correct order for
making the connection is as follows:
1. Connect the power supply (See section 3.4.1)
2. Connect the batteries (See section 3.4.1)
The first time that power is connected, the control unit displays RAM FAIL. This is
because the RAM check shows no configuration after first initialisation. Simply press the
RESET button to start with the configuration. (See chapter 4.1.1)
5.2.1
Initial system configuration
The basic configuration of the system may be made entirely from the control unit, but if
you have an external PC, it is easier.
From the control panel of the control unit:

From the external PC, configuration software:
(If you do not have a computer, it can also be configured through the control unit panel)
•
Editing of Zone (See section 4.1.4)
•
Editing of Texts (See section 4.1.5)
•
Editing of logic lines (See section 4.1.6)
•
Allocation of logic lines to the loop elements (See section 4.1.7)
•
Load the configuration from the PC to the control unit (See section 4.1.8)
5.3 Operational tests
Once the connections have been checked and the system is fully configured, it is
important to perform functioning tests on the connected elements.
The installer must trigger all the sensors and check that the system carries out the
appropriate logic lines, in accord with the implanted configuration.
5.4 Troubleshooting guide
5.4.1
Earth faults
The system detects if a current leakage to earth occurs. The FP1500 indicates this
through the “Earth Fault” LED. Even though this does not normally adversely affect the
operation of the system, this fault needs to be resolved as soon as possible.
A problem involving leakage to earth adversely affects the ability of the system to handle
external interference. This may lead to communication errors with the devices.
Disconnect the power supply when working with the system.
5.4.2
Communication errors
Caused by interference in the communication cables or by an open or short circuit fault in
the loop.
Leakage of the communication cables:
If the voltage is correct in the control unit and the sensors - approx. 32 V when checked
with a tester (see section 7 Technical specifications for details) - indicate that interference
or leakage has occurred in the cables:
•
To find the point of interference, disconnect one of the ends of the installation and
make a connection on the loop base, between S+ and R+ and between S- and R- to
ensure the functioning of the control unit and that there is no Open circuit fault.
FP1500 Installation, Configuration and Commissioning Manual
44
•
Disconnect half the installation and perform the auto-search. If the control unit
functions correctly, the problem is to be found in the other half. If it does not function
correctly, the problem is to be found on this section and you should shorten the
installation until you find the point of conflict.
Open circuit or short circuit fault in the loop:
During the cabling of the loop and/or the installation of sensors, there may be an open or
short circuit fault. The following shows how to detect the problem and solve it:
5.4.3
•
If a short circuit or Open circuit occurs, the control unit displays error messages.
•
Check the voltage with a tester, approx. 32 V (see section 7 Technical specifications
for details), at the output terminals of the main board of the control unit.
•
Check the voltage received by each of the connected elements.
•
Go to the elements identified by the control unit as communication errors and
measure their voltage.

During the configuration of the control unit, errors may occur in the process of allocating
addresses to the elements:
•
Two or more elements have the same address.
•
Not all the connected elements have been detected.
Steps to follow to re-address elements:
•
Once the configuration has finalized, the control unit displays the total of the
connected elements. If any of them has not been detected or if two or more
elements share the same address, they do not appear in the total sum.
•
Perform the auto-search again to ensure that the problem exists and that it has not
been an incidental communication failure.
If the problem persists:
5.4.4
•
After this step, a problem has been found with a certain element. Now the element
must be located. From the [System] menu, access the corresponding loop and then
select the <Elements> option.
•
From this option, check each of the elements and ensure that their addresses are
correct.
•
The element that does not appear is the one that is affecting the system. Once it has
been located, change its address or replace it.
•
If it is a case of double address, two (or more) elements are missing: the one that
has the incorrect and the one that has the correct address.
CPU failure
The LED on the front of the control unit displays “System Failure”.
Disconnect the control unit and restart it. Check that the LED is not on and carry out the
check of the correct functioning of the system.
If the problem persists, the processor of the control unit needs checking. In this case,
please contact your distributor.
FP1500 Installation, Configuration and Commissioning Manual

5.4.5
Out of service
The LED on the front of the control unit displays “Out of service”.
This warning is given when there is a lack of power supply and the voltage of the
batteries, after a prolonged period of functioning, drops below a certain level (22 V),
which does not guarantee the correct functioning of the control unit.
To solve the problem you can:
•
Change the batteries
•
Get power supply
It is recommended you disconnect the system if you cannot find an immediate solution.
5.4.6
Supply faults
If the control unit warns of a lack of power of any sort, use a tester to check the power
supply of the power input connections. If the voltage is correct, check the fuses of the
power input and the main board input.
5.4.7
Low battery
The voltage of the batteries may be low. With the control unit powered by batteries only,
check that the voltage is above 24V. Check that the fuse of the batteries on the main
board is in correct working order. Check that the output voltage of the batteries is 27.6V
when the control unit is connected to the mains without batteries.
If the batteries are in bad condition (losing liquid), they must be changed.
5.4.8
Others
The screen is not clear:
The control unit has a potentiometer for varying the screen contrast level. This option is
on the control unit connections panel. To alter the contrast, turn it slowly to the right or left
until it is clear. (See section 2.1)
The control unit does not accept the code:
To access level 3 of the configuration of the control unit, a code that is common to all
control units is required: 9898. This user code may be changed. If you change it (See
section 4.2.10) and you loose the new code, you would have to contact your distributor.

6 MAINTENANCE
Fault repair and maintenance must be carried out by qualified personnel only.
Adopt the maintenance measures recommended in EN54-14 and any other applicable
local authority laws and requirements.
Daily Maintenance:
1. The control unit must indicate normal functioning. Otherwise, the faults must be noted
down in the register book and the maintenance company called.
2. Check that any previously noted fault has been corrected.
Monthly Maintenance:
1. As a minimum, a manual call point or detector must be activated to test the control
unit and the alert elements connected to it. It is recommendable to test a different
zone every month.
2. Any malfunction should be noted down in the register book, taking the corrective
measures as soon as possible.
Cleaning:
The control unit must be cleaned with a damp cloth. Do not use solvents.
Quarterly Maintenance:
1. Inspect the entries in the register book and the records of the control unit,
implementing the appropriate corrective actions as required.
2. Examine all the battery connections and the voltage.
3. In each zone, check the alarm, fault and auxiliary functions of the control and
signalling equipment.
4. Visual inspection of the control and signalling equipment to detect a possible increase
in humidity or any other type of deterioration.
5. Check if there has been any structural alteration that may affect the functioning of the
sensors, manual call points or sirens. If so, carry out a visual check.
Any defect must be noted down in the register book and the corrective actions taken as
soon as possible.
Annual Maintenance:
1. Put the control unit in “Test” and check the configuration of the system. Check that all
the sensors and call points function in accordance with the manufacturer’s
recommendations and programmed configuration.
2. Visually inspect all the equipment connections and make sure they are safely
fastened, that they have not been damaged and that they are appropriately protected.
3. Examine and test all batteries.
4. Any defect must be noted down in the register book and the corrective actions taken
as soon as possible.

Replacing components
All the components used in this control unit have been chosen to obtain a highly reliable
and long-lasting product. However, the manufacturers of the products referred to below
indicate that their expected lifespan is below 15 years and they may therefore need to be
replaced in the future.
Expected lifespan (manufacturer)
Recommended replacement
Lithium Battery
Above 10 years
10 years in a control unit in continual service
Every 4 years for the circuits of a replacement
microprocessor that have not been connected to the
power supply.
Alphanumeric liquid crystal screen
Expected lifespan (manufacturer) Above 10 years
Recommended replacement
When the screen cannot read easily.
The liquid crystal screen with LED lighting has a lifespan that is appreciably longer than
most of the other screen technologies. The LCD contrast fades as the components age,
and therefore it may be changed when the normal contrast is visibly reduced.
