Installation Instructions
Model ADB-11
Audible Base
INTRODUCTION
Model ADB-11
The Model ADB-11Audible Base consists of a standard Series 11 base
combined with an audible device. The ADB-11 is an audible base used only with
Series 11 conventional detectors (DT-11, PE-11/-11T) and is powered directly
from the zone circuit. (Refer to Table 1 for compatible detector model numbers
and the related Installation Instructions.) All field wiring terminates at a four
position terminal block located on the back of the unit. The audible device
sounds when the detector alarms and stops sounding when the system is
reset. (Refer to Figure 1, the ADB-11 Audible Base Terminal Blocks, and
Figure 2, the ADB-11 Wiring Diagram.) Only one device is guaranteed to
activate per zone.
The ADB-11 can generate either steady or temporal tone with the insertion of a
jumper at the terminal block.

COMPATIBILITY:
Do not use looped wire under Terminal 5 of DB-11 base. Use a break in the wire at the
terminal to provide supervision of connection.
Steady tone = select + and select - are unconnected (without a jumper).
Temporal = select + and select - are shorted (insert a jumper).
Control Panels: CP-2ER, CP-2HR, System 3, MXL/MXL-IQ (CZM-4 only),
SXL-EX, and PXL.
Detectors:
PE-11, PE-11T, and DT-11.

ADB-11 Installation/Wiring Diagram
APPLICATION NOTE
The ADB-11 is a UL268 listed smoke detector supplementary device which
combines detector base and audible device functions. It meets or exceeds the
85 dB at 10 foot audibility requirement for smoke alarms as specified in
UL217, Single and Multiple Station Smoke Alarms and NFPA 72 for sleeping
areas. When used in conjunction with listed, compatible Siemens equipment,
the ADB-11 may be used in lieu of single/multiple station smoke alarms to
achieve enhanced, system-level functionality. Typical applications are sleeping
rooms in hotels, guest suites, dormitories, day-care, and residential board and
care facilities as designated in NFPA 72.
ELECTRICAL RATINGS AND CONSTRAINTS
Model ADB-11
Voltage Rating: 17 - 31 VDC
Current: Supervisory – 0A
Alarm – 24mA at 25 VDC
Constraint: Only one device is guaranteed to activate per zone.
DETECTOR PLACEMENT
The table below lists the detectors that can be used with the ADB-11 Detector
Base, along with the appropriate Installation Instructions.
Even though no specific spacings are allocated to the detectors used with
these bases, use 30 foot center spacing (900 sq ft), as referred to in NFPA
Standard 72 National Fire Alarm Code, Chapter 5 and CAN/ULC-S254, as a
guide or starting point, if practical, in a detector installation layout. This spacing
is based on ideal conditions—smooth ceiling, no air movement, and no physical obstructions.
2
In all installations (except in special circumstances like computer room
underfloors), locate the detector on the ceiling, a minimum of 6 inches from a
side wall, or on a wall, between 4 and 6 inches from the ceiling.
If questions arise regarding detector placement, it is extremely important that
the drawings provided or approved by Siemens Industry, Inc. or by its authorized distributors be followed! The detector placements shown on these drawings were chosen after a careful evaluation of all facets of protecting the area.
Environmental factors such as air current, temperature, humidity, air pressure,
and the nature of the fire load are carefully considered. Special consideration is
given to room or area configuration and the type of ceiling (sloped or flat,
smooth or beamed). Siemens Industry, Inc.'s extensive experience in the
design of fire detection systems assures optimum detector placement and is
reflected in these drawings. Follow sound engineering judgment made by
qualified personnel.

DETECTOR WIRING
(USING THE ADB-11 BASE)
Audible base model ADB-11 should be interconnected as shown in the
InstallationlWiring Diagrams above and wired to the specific system modules
and control panels following the appropriate instructions.
DETECTOR MOUNTING
(USING THE ADB-11 BASE)
The detector base comes from the factory prewired. All signaling and initiating
circuits are connected directly to the back of the ADB-11 audible base using the
four-position terminal blocks.
Note: The Audible Base Model ADB-11 attaches only to a 4-inch square
electrical box with extension.
Mounting the Detector Base
1. Route all wires out from the outlet box.
2. When the alarm LED viewing is critical, position the LED mark on the base in
the intended direction (Refer to Figure 3).
3. Make connections directly to the audible base terminals located on the back
of the base. Refer to the related lnstallation/Wiring Diagram above.
3
4. After all bases are installed, check loop continuity. Refer to System manual
for the loop continuity checkout procedure. For ADB-11 loop continuity
check, use the jumper furnished in every base (between terminals 1a and
1b) to complete the loop (Refer to Figure 3). An open circuit condition exists
until the jumper or detector is installed in the base.
5. If loop continuity is acceptable, remove the jumper at each base and
proceed with detector head installation.
