6.1 Rotary Switch on Panels
All Autroprime panels (BS-200, BS-200M, BS-200L, BS-211, BU-210,
BV-210) must be assigned addresses by means of the rotary switch
located on the rear side of the panel. The addresses must be set
before mounting.
6.2 Addressing the Fire Alarm Control Panel (BS-200)
The main Fire Alarm Control Panel (BS-200, BS-200L, BS-200M)
must always have address 0 (the arrow pointing straight downwards).
Address 0 is preset from the factory.
6.3 Addressing other Panels
All other panels connected to the RS-485 Panel Bus, including
Repeater Panel BS-211, Fire Brigade Panel BU-210, Information
Panel BV-210 and “Larmlagringspanel BU-211” have addresses from
1-9.
6.4 Addressing Mimic Drivers
To address the Mimic Drivers the X2 Panel Bus Address Switch is
used. If S2.7 is set to Master, X2 sets the panel bus address. If S2.7 is
set as slave, X2 sets the RS-485 daisy-chain slave address. The
range for the switch is 1-9.

2-wire 24V supply:
Calculation vs power loss
The power loss in these cables has to take into consideration the maximum current at
startup due to the Lamp test, which is 300 mA. Cable loss shall be limited to ensure at
least 18V supply to each panel in this situation.
For cabinet internal connections only, limited to 10m.
For USCG installations the length is limited to 6m (20 feet).
RS485/422
Shielded cable is required if cable is >3m. Cable shall be twisted pair, 100 ohm
characteristic impedance (Cat 5 cable recommended).
For USCG installations the length is limited to 6m (20 feet).
If multi-stranded cables are used, cable crimps shall be used.
8.2 Detection Loop Cables
8.2.1 General Considerations
The maximum cable length is determined by both cable loss and the
at-site designed power consumption. Increasing current implies a
demand for less cable loss, hence increased copper area or reduced
cable length (refer to Guidance Table on the next page).
In the system service menu (Unit Configuration/Detection Loops) it is
possible to limit the maximum possible current consumption for a
selected detection loop. There are 4 different settings, 100mA (the
default setting), 150mA, 200mA and 250mA. The current consumption
per device is found in the data sheets of the respective units.
Note: The current consumption of LED indicators (on detectors or loop
units) in the event of an alarm has to be included.
The current consumption of other loads has to be included (for
example, loads applied to the output connection of detectors).
Units with varying current consumption, like sounders or strobe
devices have to be included according to the configured setting, for
example, the sound level may vary.

A 25% margin should be added for safety, to ensure correct operation
in case of excessive current consumption, degraded connections
(ageing), etc.

Cable Specifications
8.3 The Panel Bus Cable Requirements
8.3.1 Characteristic Impedance and Signal Attenuation
When dealing with specification of the Panel Bus cable, the important
issues are the characteristic impedance and the attenuation of the
signal at approximately 100 KHz. These parameters become more
important the longer the cable is.
The parameters are defined by the geometry of the cable. Proper
characteristic impedance is best obtained by a cable with twisted
pairs. For short communication paths (less than approximately 100m)
the characteristic impedance is not that important, and attenuation is
low enough for most cables. However, the twisting improves the
cable’s ability to withstand external interference, and a twisted cable
should be preferred when the cable runs in the vicinity of power
cables and power devices as generators, transformers etc.
Longer paths require twisted pair cable and 100 ohms characteristic
impedance, Cat 5 or similar cable intended for RS485 transmission.
The characteristic impedance shall be (at 100KHz:) 100 ohm +/- 15
ohm. Note that the characteristic impedance has nothing to do with
the resistance of the cable. It is a property related to high-frequency
transmission, regardless of its length. Typical examples are antenna
cable (300 ohm), video cable (75 ohm).
Attenuation is defined by the wire to wire capacitance mostly, as long
as the wire is at least 0.5mm2. The total attenuation of the cable
length must not exceed 9 dB @ 100KHz. If attenuation is not
specified, normally the capacitance is defined. The capacitance
should not exceed the specified value in order to achieve the total
communication length.
8.3.2 High-voltage and Noisy Environments
In high-voltage environments (power plants, electrical machinery etc.)
it is recommended that shielded cable is used. In this case, the
shielding of the cable should only be connected at one end to avoid
ground loops. If high-frequency noise is expected (>10MHz), then
both ends should be connected. This may be present close to radio
transmitting equipment or similar.

Autronica Fire and Security AS
Page 19
Cable Specifications
8.3.3 Cable Length and Power Consumption
The maximum cable lengths are defined for each segment between
panels. Each panel has a built-in electrical repeat of the signal.
Power loss, however, is defined from the maximum power
consumption along the cable.
Note: RS-485 Panel Bus contains both the RS-485 signalling and the
redundant power to all panels. Two four pair cable will be suitable.
Note: For redundancy, the power supply has to be supplied by two
separated cables in a loop structure. See drawing (Simplified cable
routing between panels).
NOTE: If separate power supplies are installed locally to source the
panels, the following shall be ensured:
 The local power supply shall be galvanically isolated from its local
power source and earth.
 The reference (0V) of this power shall be connected to 0V of the
Fire Alarm Control Panel to ensure same reference for all signaling
nodes. As described in the tables below, one of the pairs may be
used for this.
In this case, an earth fault at this panel’s power supply will be signaled
as a global earth fault by the Fire Alarm Control Panel.
The local power supply to the panel should include a local backup
source in case of loss of mains supply. In some installations it may be
required (by local regulations) that the power supply includes a
monitoring of internal condition in accordance to EN-54-4, and that it
signals a fault if present. The wires from the power supply’s fault relay
output has to be connected to J23, replacing the jumper. A break in
this circuit path makes the panel signal a fault in the system. Total
loss of power will be signalled in the system as a missing panel.

8.4 Calculation of Power Consumption and Cable Loss
The fuses determine the maximum power load. The 24V cabling
should be dimensioned according to the power consumption and the
smallest voltage during load.
CAUTION
!
Sourcing of power shall only be supplied via the fused
outputs (+24V Out 1- and Out 2) from the Fire Alarm Control
Panel. Connecting to battery or charger is not allowed as the
control of the charger voltage and current will become
malfunctional.
8.5 Power Supply and Battery Capacity
The battery capacity must be calculated according to the total power
consumption all units require in case no mains power is supplied.
Note that national/local requirements for battery backup may vary.
General Rules

Add all power loads in the Quiescent condition. The total current
consumption should then be multiplied with the required hours of
battery backup (typically 24 hours).

Then add the additional load in Alarm condition. As above, multiply
by the hours required for this condition (typically 0,5 hours)
The total required battery capacity which is now found needs a margin
of about 15 % for the life cycle of the battery.
In addition, the total current supplied by the fuses +24V Out1 and
+24V Out2 shall be safely below the 1.0A limit. The available total
current from the charger is 5,0A, and care must be taken to ensure
that the total charging current together with the overall load does not
exceed 5,0A. Also, the charging current available shall be capable of
charging the batteries fully within 24 hours.

9.11 Connections to Mimic Drivers (BUR-200)
NOTE: For specific information
on the installation and cable
connections for maritime
installations, refer to chapter
10.
The BUR-200 is a Mimic Driver that is capable of driving 32 LEDs with
series resistors on a mimic panel for additional indication of alarms. In
addition, 8 standard monitored inputs can be used for reading various
switches.
Power redundancy is achieved by using a daisy-chain connection with
master and slave drivers. A maximum of 8 Mimic Drivers can be
connected to the panel bus, providing a total of 256 outputs and 64
monitored inputs.
Note that when connecting additional panels on a panel bus, the
communication cables inside the cabinet (Fire Alarm Control Panel)
must be connected as shown in chapter 9.8.2.
CAUTION
!
Do not connect the 24V wire to the terminal points used for
communication (A and B terminals). This will lead to
malfunction of the communication circuits.

11.1 Power Up
Autroprime is provided to the user in a pre-configured state. In this
state the panel is set to recognize detectors and other loop units
connected to the detection loops and the availability of routing
equipment, etc. As such, the system is fully functional and ready-touse simply by turning ON the power.
When the necessary cabling for the Fire Alarm Control Panel and all
other panels that are to be interconnected is completed, you are ready
to power up the Fire Alarm Control Panel.
 To turn ON the Fire Alarm Control Panel, connect the mains cable,
then connect the internal battery cables to the correct terminal
points. Refer to Cable Connections, chapter 1.1.
The green Power-indicator lights up with a steady green light, and an
initialization starts.

Changes on the Detection Loop
14. Changes on the Detection Loop
14.1 Typical Scenarios
This chapter provides information on how changes on the detection
loop affect the system during normal operation.
The table below gives an overview of typical scenarios for various
examples, including the actions to be carried out and the panel
indication (visual/audible).
Note that some fault messages may not appear if a change is done
rapidly (for example, a unit is removed and another unit is inserted
rapidly). However, the procedures will be the same, regardless of how
quick the changes are done.
Before a point is to be added or removed from the loop (for example,
a new detector base for a detector is added or an existing is
removed), the detection loop in question has to be disabled after
entering service mode. When the change has been done, the
detection loop has to be enabled.
14.2 Remove a unit and Insert the same unit
Scenario during normal operation /
actions to be carried out
Panel indication (visual/audible)
For example, remove an optical smoke detector BH-300 and replace the same one.
