User responsibility
User responsibility
Your fire alarm system should have been designed, installed
and commissioned to your site specific requirements and in
accordance with the requirements of BS 5839 Part 1. You
should have received instructions about your system during the
handover stage and must make arrangements to ensure the
system is regularly tested and maintained.
It is recommended that the person responsible for the
fire alarm system should ensure the system is tested and
maintained in accordance with the requirements of
BS 5839:Part 1 and become familiar with:
 the operation of controls and be able to interpret the
indications given at the control panel
 keep up to date all documentation associated with the
system.
Any servicing work on the Vigilon system must
be carried out by a suitably trained person,
please refer to your servicing organisation.
Daily
BS 5839:Part 1, states that the system should be inspected
daily to ensure:
 That a normal indication is given at the control and
indicating equipment.
 That any previously indicated fault conditions have received
appropriate attention.
 All system events are entered into the Log Book for future
reference.
 That the use of the ‘area(s) that are inspected’ has not
changed since the system was designed.
 That no unsafe practices that could lead to fire are being
undertaken.
Weekly
When testing the system there may be a need to isolate
ancillary outputs and it is important to contact the alarm
receiving centre before and after the weekly test.
 A different manual call point of the system should be tested
to ensure the system is capable of operating under alarm
conditions.
 The operation of the alarm sounders should be checked,
which also reminds the occupants that there is a fire alarm
system which gives a particular sound output.
The test should be performed at a regular
time to avoid confusion between a test and a
genuine fire alarm. The alarm receiving centre
must be contacted before and after the test to
check alarms are received and also to avoid
unwanted alarms.
4
Vigilon COMPACT fire system
Quarterly
At quarterly intervals the system should be inspected and any
work necessary should be performed by a trained maintenance
engineer.
For help with service and maintenance please
refer to your servicing organisation, see
contact details entered in the log book.
System control and indicating equipment
On occurrence of a fire, fault or disablement event in the
protect premises, the event is quickly indicated at a control and
indicating equipment. The control and indicating equipment
is installed in accessible location and can be operated by the
person responsible for the fire system.
Control panel
Limitation of false alarm
It is recommended that the person responsible for the fire
alarm system should arrange for suitable investigation and
appropriate action on occasion of every false alarm. For a
system having less than 40 automatic fire detectors installed,
an in-depth investigation should be instigated on occurrence of
two false alarms in any rolling 12 months. For a system having
more than 40 automatic fire detectors an investigation should
be instigated if there has been:
 one false alarm for every 20 installed detectors in the
system in any rolling 12 months, or
 two or more false alarm occurrences from a single device.
The control panel is the heart of the system. It is normally
located near to the main entry or exit point of the protected
premises.
The control panel continuously monitor devices that are
connected to each device loop. The device loop cable is routed
through the protected premises to cover all areas with both
ends of the loop terminating at the control panel. On the loop
cable are installed devices such as fire sensors, that constantly
monitor the environment for fire. Alarm devices on the loop
provide alert and evacuation alarm to warn occupants in the
protected premises in the event of a fire.

Compact Network Node
Zonal Mimic panels
A Compact network node provide central indications of
events in a Vigilon network.
There may also be a number of mimic and zonal mimic panels
installed in the protected premises, to provide visual indications
in a graphical and zonal format.
Normally one is installed next to the main control panel.
There may be additional panels installed in other areas of the
protected premises to cover sub division of the premises.
NA
Some operations identified by the symbol ‘NA’ covered in
this manual are not applicable for the Compact Network
Node.
Repeat panels
There may be one or more repeat panels installed in the
protected premises to provide secondary indications of the
system condition. The larger repeat panel additionally provide
system controls. The repeat panels are usually located near to
secondary entry and exit points of the protected premises.

be aware of this PIN code. For security the PIN should be
changed on a regular basis.
a. Press the MENU ON/OFF key and then the F4 key to select
[Test/Eng].
b. Press the F1 key to select [Disp Test]. Check that the
following things happen: The display clears, the indicators
