SIMPLICITY MICRO INSTRUCTION MANUAL
Introduction
The Simplicity Micro has been designed as an ideal fire alarm panel for
smaller premises. It is an analogue addressable system that is priced
competitively with traditional conventional fire alarm systems.
Being an addressable system, the panel will locate the exact cause of an
alarm, and each detector can be labelled with a 20 character description to
further improve user friendliness. An exact location is much more useful for
locating the cause of an alarm, rather than just a zone indication, which might
contain 15 or more detectors.
As the name suggests, the panel is based on the highly popular Simplicity
range of fire panels, and incorporates nearly all of their features.
Installation couldn`t be easier. Simply wire all the detectors, sounders and call
points to a single loop of cable. Give each device a unique address. Enter the
panels menu & select “configure the loop” option. Enter the detector location
descriptions. And the system is now up & running.

Mains & Battery
Connecting the mains.
The Mains supply to the FACP is fixed wiring, using Fire resisting 3-core
cable (Between 1 mm² and 2.5mm²) or a suitable 3-conductor system, fed
from an isolating double pole switch fused spur, fused at 3A. IT SHOULD
NOT BE CONNECTED THROUGH AN RCD. This should be secure from
unauthorised operation and be marked ‘FIRE ALARM: DO NOT SWITCH
OFF’. The supply must be exclusive to the Fire Panel. MAKE SURE ANY
SPARE ENTRY HOLES ARE COVERED WITH THE GROMMETS
PROVIDED
Connecting the batteries
The Simplicity Micro requires 2 x 12 V sealed lead acid (SLA) batteries
The two batteries are wired in series.
The +ve of one battery is connected to the red battery lead.
The –ve of the other battery is connected to the black battery lead.
The –ve of the first battery is connected to the +ve of the second battery using
the link wire supplied.
Although there are many sizes of suitable battery, the sizes the enclosure has
been designed for 12V 2Ah.

Setting the Device Address
ON
5 6
1 2 3 4
7
If you are not familiar with binary, use the table
below, or use the following rule:
8
The address setting is binary, with the
ON position being binary 0 , and the
OFF position being binary 1. Switch 8
is not used for setting the address, but
sometimes has a device specific
function. (check instructions that come
with the device). EG on sounder bases,
switch 8 MUST BE ON.
Switch 7 off = add 64,
Switch 6 off = add 32,
Switch 5 off = add 16,
Switch 4 off = add 8,
Switch 3 off = add 4,
Switch 2 off = add 2,
Switch 1 off = add 1.
The example shown would be:
switches 5, 4 & 1
=16 + 8 + 1 = Address 25
Address DIP Switch Settings & Zone Allocation
Each device on the loop is given a different binary address. See table below for switch
settings.

Traditionally a building would be zoned to divide it into smaller sections to indicate
which section had the alarm. On an addressable system, the panel can give an exact
location, so the zone information is less useful.

SIMPLICITY MICRO INSTRUCTION MANUAL
DISABLEMENT
On the Simplicity, there are 2 disablement options. A whole zone of detectors can be disabled, or an individual
point can be disabled. Both types of disablement can be used at the same time if required.
ZONE DISABLEMENT
To aid commissioning and assist routine maintenance checks, any of the zones or the loop sounders can be
disabled.
When a zone is disabled, the panel will not respond to any fault or fire signals it receives from DETECTORS from
that zone. Call points will remain operational.
This might be used if the system requires routine maintenance, and the customer needs the system to continue
running, but doesn’t want spurious false alarms.
The panel will respond in the usual manner to any events in any non-disabled zones.
The Simplicity also allows the loop sounders to be disabled. If they are disabled, the panel will not start any
sounders in an alarm condition.
TO PROGRAMME ZONE (OR SOUNDERS) AS DISABLED
Any number of zones (or the sounders) can be disabled, but it is good practice to only disable one zone at a time.
1.
Press ENTER button, then enter access code 123.
2.
Press GENERAL DISABLEMENT button and the screen will
show: ZONE DISABLEMENT ZONE 1. The panel is now in
SELECT DISABLEMENT MODE.

will now show that the zone is disabled, and the GENERAL
DISABLEMENT LED will be on. This section is now disabled.
(NOTE: Call points in this zone will still be active. To disable the
call points as well, disable them individually as points – see next section)

Single Devices: 0
4.
If more than one zone (or sounder) needs to be disabled, then press
NEXT (or PREV) again until the required zone (or sounder) is selected.
5.
If the panel needs to be taken out of SELECT DISABLEMENT MODE (eg to silence a fault on another
part of the system), either press GENERAL DISABLEMENT button, or press cancel.
6.
Once all the maintenance work has been done, the zones need to be enabled again. If the panel is still in
SELECT DISABLEMENT MODE, jump to paragraph 7, otherwise, press GENERAL DISABLEMENT
button. (if access is not on, you will have to enter the code 123, then press General disablement again. The
panel is now in SELECT DISABLEMENT MODE
7.
Press the NEXT (or PREV) button until the disabled zone is displayed on the screen. Press ENTER button
to de-select disablement. Scroll to any other disabled zone and enable in the same way. When all zones are
enabled again, the GENERAL DISABLEMENT LED will turn off. Either press GENERAL
DISABLEMENT button, or press cancel to return the system to normal. (NOTE: This will also enable any
points individually disabled in that zone)

TEST MODE
WHY USE TEST MODE
To aid commissioning and assist routine maintenance check, a non-latching ‘one man test’ facility is available.
When a detector or manual call point is triggered on any zone in Test, the Alarm sounders operate for
approximately eight seconds on and four seconds off. This cycle continues until the cause of the Alarm is
removed (either by the test smoke clearing from the detector or the manual call point being reset), sounders will
then stop activating.
Should an Alarm occur on a zone that is not programmed to test, the Fire Alarm Panel will cancel the test mode.
After the cause of the alarm has been checked, and the panel reset, test mode will have to be selected again to
resume testing.
TO PROGRAMME ZONE IN TEST MODE
NOTE: Only one zone can be programmed in test at any one time.
1.
Press ENTER button, then enter access code 123.
2.
Press TEST Button. The screen will prompt for the test code

Alarm Condition & Resetting an alarm
The Simplicity Micro signals an alarm by the following:Turn on the General Fire LED
Turn on the Zonal Fire Indicator
Display the address & description of the device in alarm
Turn on internal buzzer
Start any sounders connected to the loop
Activate the fire relay
What to do in the event of a fire.
1. Follow the building evacuation procedure, and check that everyone has
left the building safely.
2. The building fire officer or responsible person should CAREFULLY
enter the building, and locate the area of the alarm from the fire alarm
panel.
3. Investigate to determine the cause of the alarm. The detector that
signalled alarm will be displayed on the screen, and it will have its RED
ALARM LED on.
4. If a small fire is found, a suitably trained person could tackle this with a
suitable fire extinguisher.
5. If a larger fire is found, leave the building immediately, and contact the
fire brigade.
6. If no fire is found, make a note of the detector that signalled fire, and
look for anything nearby that could be the cause of the activation, eg
cooking, or use of a hot air gun etc.
7. Record findings in the fire alarm log book.
Resetting from an alarm condition
After the relevant action has been taken, the Simplicity Micro fire alarm panel can be reset by
the following:1
2
3
Press Stop/Start sounder button. (if the panel prompts for access code, type in
123, then press Start/Stop Sounder again)This will silence the external sounders.
Press Silence Fault Tone button. This will silence the panel`s internal buzzer.
Press the Reset button. This will return the panel to it`s normal condition.
If the panel goes straight back into alarm, then the cause of the alarm has not been
cleared. This could be a detector still exposed to smoke, or a call point still in the active
position. Press Buttons Stop/Start Sounder button & Silence tone button on the panel,
then investigate for a call point, or detector that still has it`s RED ALARM LED on. Reset
the call point, or clear the smoke. If the problem persists, contact an engineer.

SIMPLICITY MICRO INSTRUCTION MANUAL
Fault display & fault-finding
On the Simplicity panel, Faults are divided into 2 types, “Faults” and “Device Faults”. Device Faults are
any fault associated with a particular address on the loop. Faults is everything else, EG sounder circuits,
power supply etc. In the event of multiple faults, the Faults are grouped together first, followed by the
device faults. Next button will scroll to next fault
The Simplicity Micro panel will signal a fault by turning on it`s General Fault LED, sounding
it`s internal buzzer, and operating it`s fault relay (which is normally energised). It will also give
further information about the fault on it`s LCD screen.
The Simplicity Micro panel monitors for the following faults:Low or failed mains (Including fuses)
Low or failed battery (Including fuse)
Earth wiring Fault
Loop open circuit wiring fault
Loop short circuit wiring fault
Detector removed.
Double address (installation) fault
Most of these faults will need to be checked by an engineer, but the system can be checked
for a removed detector by the responsible person.
All faults in the Simplicity Micro are NON-LATCHING. IE they can not be cleared with the
reset button, because the message will return if the fault is still present. They will clear
automatically when the fault has been fixed.

the fault:M i s s i n g
A configured device is no longer answering. Check :*
That the device has not been removed
*
That the device`s address has not been changed

The device answering at this address has changed since the panel was configured. This
could be because:•
The system has not been configured yet. The configured type in the top left hand
corner will show NONE. Enter the menu & configure the loop.
•
A device has been changed (EG a smoke detector has been changed for a heat
detector). Make sure that the new detector still gives the required coverage, then
reconfigure the loop
•
The device`s address has been changed, and the panel sees it at a different
address.
If the device is giving no further details of the fault, then the “device in fault” is communicating
OK with the control Panel , but is reporting a fault that it has detected itself. EG a Securetone
Micro detector base with the detector removed.
Missing Device faults
If the panel is showing less devices than expected on it`s loop contents screen, then to find
the devices which aren`t answering the panel:Check Connections
•
•
•
Check that they are actually connected to the loop
Check that there is voltage at the device terminals
Check that they are connected with the correct polarity
o An Addressable Detector uses L2 = +ve, L1IN = -ve
o Other addressable devices are usually marked + & -
Check Address
•
•
•
•
Check that they have a unique address set
Check that the address is set in the range 1 to 32 (because the Simplicity Micro
only talks to the first 32 addresses
For Securetone Micro sounder bases, check that dip switch 8 is ON
Check that the address switches have been set the correct way (TIP: if unsure of
the correct setting, take a device that is not being seen and reverse the settings
for switches 1 to 7. If this does not help try changing switch 8)
Other Checks
•
•
Check that the devices are compatible with the simplicity micro (EG, conventional
detectors MUST be fitted to a Securetone Micro sounder base. They can`t
connect directly to the loop)
Check that Isolators are not isolating this device (usually accompanied with a
loop break message)

To calculate the required battery backup required, we use the equation:Battery Size (Standby time in Amp Hours) = 1.25 x [(TALM x IALM) + (TSBY x ISBY )]
Where:
TALM = Maximum time in hours required for the alarm [½ hour is most common time]
IALM = Total Alarm Current in amps for all alarm devices connected to the alarm circuits
TSBY = Standby time in hours for the system after mains failure [normally 24, 48 or 72 hr]
ISBY = Quiescent current in amps of control panel in fault condition [because of mains failure]
PLUS all loop devices.
IALM = (SIMPLICITY MICRO) ALM + (4 X SOUNDER BASE ALARM) + (2 X SOUNDER FLASHER
BASE ALARM) + (1 X DETECTOR ALM) + (2 X MCP QU) + (4 X OPT QU) + (1 x

=0.065 + 4x 0.0055 + 2x 0.007 + 1x0.012 + 2x0.001 + 4x0.0001 + 1x0.00005
=0.065 + 0.022 + 0.014 + 0.012 + 0.002 + 0.0004 + 0.00005
=0.11545 Amps
ISBY = (SIMPLICITY MICRO QU) + (4 X SOUNDER BASE QU) + (2 X SOUNDER FLASHER BASE
QU) + (2 X MCP QU) + (5 X OPT QU) + (1 x HT QU)
=0.039 + 4x0.0012 + 2x0.0012 + 2x0.001 + 5x0.0001 + 1x0.00005
=0.039 + 0.0048 +0.0024 + 0.002 + 0.0005 + 0.00005
=0.04875
Therefore:Battery size
= 1.25 X ((0.5 x 0. 0.11545) + (24 x 0.04875))
= 1.25 X (0.057725 + 1.17)
= 1.25 x 1.227725
= 1.5346 Ah
So 2.0 Ah batteries will be suitable for this installation.
