Introduction
1. Introduction
1.1 About the Handbook
This handbook is intended to provide the information necessary to
operate the AutroSafe Interactive Fire Alarm System from the Fire
Alarm Control Panel, BS-310/320 or the Operator Panel, BS-330.
As the user interface and operation of both panels are identical, the
panel is referred to as the operator panel throughout this handbook.
1.2 The Reader
The handbook is intended to be used by personnel who are
responsible for operating the system. We assume the reader has the
necessary basic understanding of the system concept (refer to
System Specification), and the term zone including, Detection Zone,
Alarm Zone and Operation Zone (refer to Appendix).
The AutroSafe Interactive Fire Alarm System comprises various
components (see chapter 1.4). It is important that the reader gets
familiarized with these, plus the different terms and abbreviations. A
list containing the most commonly used terms and abbreviations is
included in Appendix.

The Operator Panel - Overview
2. The Operator Panel - Overview
2.1 Introduction
Each operator panel is assigned to one Operation Zone (refer to
«Zonal Definitions» in Appendix). Relative to its own zone, an
operator panel is local, while it is remote to operation zones which are
not encompassed by the local zone. All events and actions occurring
in a particular operation zone must be handled from a local operator
panel.
The operator panel displays information on events occurring in all
operation zones. However, the type of events and the level of details
of the given information depends on which operation zone the
information is related to. Local panels will list all detection zones in fire
alarm state. Remote operator panels will list remote alarms only, and
function as «indication only» devices.
The operator panel consists of two main sections. The upper section,
and the lower section which is the Operator Part.

2.5 Internal Buzzer
Each operator panel provides a buzzer which is activated as
described below. Each condition may have its own sound pattern. If
more than one condition is present simultaneously, the state of the
operator panel and the buzzer signal will be decided. The buzzer will
reflect the condition which has the highest priority.
The internal buzzer is controlled by hardware. It is activated in the
cases of:
• System Fault
• Alarm
• Prealarm
• Early Warning
The buzzer can be silenced by pressing the Mute Panel button. One
exception is the buzzer signal indicating System Fault which can not
be silenced.
If the reason for the buzzer signal still exists, the buzzer will resound
after a predefined time.

3.2 Conditions in Operation Mode
In Operation Mode, the system can be in quiescent condition (lowest
priority), or the system can be in one or any combination of the
following conditions:
•
•
•
•
•
fire alarm condition (highest priority)
fire warning condition (including prealarm and early warning)
fault warning condition
disablement condition
test condition
3.3 Alarm Levels
A detector may signal different levels of alarm, indicating the amount
of smoke or gas currently present. These are;
• Fire Alarm Level (the highest level)
• Fire Warning, including:
- Prealarm Level
- Early Warning
Whenever a detector detects a transition from one alarm level to

3.11 Resounding the Internal Buzzer
After pressing the MUTE PANEL button in an alarm condition, the
internal buzzer will automatically be resounded in the following cases:
• if any new event occurs (for example, a detection zone enters the
Fire Alarm state)
• after a timeout period if the cause for making it sound is still
present.
3.12 Resounding Fire Alarm Devices
When pressing the SILENCE ALARMS button in the event of an
alarm, all fire alarm devices (FAD) within the operation zone of the
operator panel will be deactivated. The red Fire Alarm indication lamp
will switch from blinking to steady light.
At this stage, the resound timer will start. The resound timer will
restart on each operation of the SILENCE ALARMS button.
To manually resound the alarm zones, Action Digit 1, which
represents RESOUND, can be pressed.
The alarm zones are automatically resounded to their alarm states on
timeout (configurable) of the SILENCE resound timer.
3.13 Resetting the System
In order to reset the system by pressing the RESET button, all Fire
Alarm Devices (FAD) have to be silenced / deactivated using the
SILENCE ALARMS button. Otherwise the reset operation will be
rejected without having any effect on system behaviour (configurable).

3.14 Alarm Disablement (AlarmDisable)
If there are points within an operation zone still signalling a Fire Alarm,
an alarm disablement will take effect.
Alarmdisabling may or may not be required to be confirmed by the
operator (configurable).
• If confirmation is not required, all points still signalling a Fire Alarm,
are automatically disabled.
• If confirmation is required, a list of points in alarm is presented on
the display. To confirm automatic disablement, the ENTER button
( ) must be pressed within 5 seconds (configurable).
All alarmdisabled detectors can be enabled at this stage by pressing
Action Digit 3, which represents REACTIVATE .
3.15 Suppressed Information
When operating in Operation Mode, the message SHOW SUPPR.
INFO may appear in the highlighted field at the lower part of the
display. This indicates that there are conditions that are active, but
suppressed, i.e. not shown on the display.
To reveal suppressed information, Action Digit 4, representing SHOW
SUPPRESSED INFO, can be pressed.
3.16 Disablement Sources
3.16.1 Overview
The AutroSafe Interactive Fire Alarm System supports the following
disablement sources:
• Individual
A unit is disabled by an individual command issued to the specified
unit. Applicable to all units with disable capability.
• Loop
A unit is dsabled by its corresponding loop being disabled.
Applicable to Points, FADs, FPEs and panels connected to loops
(DID, remote silence / reset).
• Zone
A point is disabled by a command to its corresponding detection
zone, affecting all Points in the detection zone, including any
manual call points. Applicable to Points only.
• Disable Input Unit
A point is disabled by a command from a Disablement Input Unit
via its corresponding detection zone. Applicable to Points only.
• Master Zone
equivalent with Zone, except from that the command is issued to
AutroSafe over the AutroCom connection. Applicable to Points
only.

Autronica Fire and Security AS
Page 23
Operation Mode
3.16.2 Point Disablements
A general rule is that a Point may be disabled by one or more
disablement sources simultaneously. To be enabled, the Point must
be enabled from all these disablement sources.
Example:
A Point is disabled from a Zone (Detection Zone disable command
issued from an Operator Panel) and from a Disable Input Unit. For the
Point to become enabled, a DZ enable command must be issued from
the Operator Panel and the Restore button on the Disable Input Unit
must be pressed.
Exceptions to this general rule is as follows:
• Individual enablements will override and remove all other
disablements but Loop disablements. The reason for this is that an
individual Point disablement should be regarded as a sort of
service command used in exceptional circumstances, disabling of
Points is usually done via its Detection Zone.
• Master Zone enablements will override and remove all Master
Zone, Zone and Disablement Input Unit disablements.
3.16.3 Other Unit Disablements
Other units (than Points) are only affected by Individual and Loop
disablements.
Note that in contrast to Point disablements, there is no memory in the
system in conjunction with Loop disable / enable operations: When a
loop is disabled and then enabled, any disablements which may have
existed before the loop disable will be lost. In other words, all loop
units (except Points which have this memory function, see above) will
be enabled when enabling the corresponding loop.

3.17 Alarm Handling - A Typical Situation
The handling of a fire situation will typically contain the following
phases:
• One or more detection zones are issuing Prealarm signals
(Accept).
• One or more of these detection zones will go into Fire Alarm,
activating Fire Alarm Devices (FAD) and Fire Protection Equipment
(FPE).
• When the operator has investigated the cause of the alarm, the
activated Fire Alarm Devices (FAD) may be deactivated when the
situation is under control (Silence Alarms).
• If the deactivation of the Fire Alarm Devices (FAD) shows to be
erroneous, the Fire Alarm Devices (FAD) may be resounded
(Resound).
• After silencing the Fire Alarm Devices (FAD), the system may be
reset. Reset will delete all indications of the fire situation and, if
physically possible, deactivate the Fire Protection Equipment
(FPE) (Reset).
• The reset operation includes alarm disabling of all those points
within the operation zone of the operating panel still signalling Fire
Alarm (must be confirmed by the operator). Alarmdisabling may
later be cancelled and the points made to retransmit their alarm
level (Reactivate).

3.18 Different Types of Detection Zones
3.18.1 Introduction
When handling events in Operation Mode, it is important to be aware
of differences regarding the detection zone configuration (configured
by using the AutroSafe Configuration Tool).
The type of the specific detection zone as well as the type of point
(detector or manual call point) will determine how the system
responds to the signal - with respect to action.
The system has the following types of detection zones:
• Immediate Action detection zone
• Coincidence Action detection zone
• Delayed Action detection zone
• Delayed Coincidence detection zone
• SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) detection zone
3.18.2 Immediate Action Detection Zones
A signal from an Immediate Action detection zone, will initiate all
actions immediately, without any delay.
Immediate Action applies to:
• Fire Alarm Devices (FAD)
• Fire Alarm Routing Equipment (FARE)
• Fire Protection Equipment (FPE)
Operator's Handbook, AutroSafe Interactive Fire Alarm System, Release 3, ASAFE-FO/FE Rev. I, 2009-02-27,
Autronica Fire and Security AS
Page 26
Operation Mode
3.18.3 Coincidence Action Detection Zones
A fire alarm signal from a single detector in a Coincidence Action
detection zone, will initiate no actions, i.e. there will be no actioning of
outputs to;
• Fire Alarm Devices (FAD)
• Fire Alarm Routing Equipment (FARE)
• Fire Protection Equipment (FPE)
- provided that FAD, FARE and FPE are set to Qualified Action (see
next page)
At least two detectors in the same detection zone must be in
alarm state before actions are initiated.
Note that an activation of a manual call-point in a coincidence
action detection zone will always initiate actions.
In the display, the alarm number for a detection zone will remain
steady until a new point in the same zone enters alarm state.
Note that the optional alarm presentation with zonal indication is
used throughout the handbook.
In the example below, the detection zone 2 CANTEEN is configured
as a zone with coincidence action.

3.18.4 Delayed Action Detection Zones
When the operator panel receives a fire alarm signal from a point in a
Delayed Action detection zone (configurable), the actioning of outputs
to Fire Alarm Devices (FAD) and/or Fire Alarm Routing Equipment
(FARE) can be delayed.
In an alarm situation, the actioning of outputs will be delayed when;
• the detection zone has been defined as a Delayed Action detection
zone (configurable)
• the point(s) in this Delayed Action detection zone has been set to
point delay ON (the default configuration)
• Immediate Output Actioning has been disabled (in the Disable
menu, refer to How to Disable Immediate Output Actioning, page
66).
• the actual FAD / FARE has been set to Qualified Action
(configurable)
Note that activation of a manual call-point will normally (point
delay OFF) give immediate output actioning even though the
immediate output actioning has been disabled (configurable).
The operation of delays to outputs to Fire Alarm Devices (FAD) and
Fire Alarm Routing Equipment apply to:
• detectors and/or
• manual call-points and/or
• signals from specific zones
The delay is divided into two delay periods, Initial delay, T1
(configurable) and Prolonged Delay, T2 (configurable).
The (T1) delay period is started when a Fire Alarm signal from a point
is received. Actions will be initiated after the T1 delay period has
expired. Pressing Action Digit 4, which represents PROLONG DELAY,
will terminate T1 and the delay period T2 will start.
If one or more Delayed Action detection zones have entered the Fire
Alarm state and are in their T1 or T2 periods, the delayed actions can
be immediately initiated by pressing Action digit 2, which represents
ACTIVATE. Activation of a manual call point with the Operation Zone
will also give immediate action.

3.18.5 Delayed Coincidence Detection Zones
Detection zones configured as Delayed Coincidence Detection Zones
have the following properties:
In Day Mode (Immediate Output Actioning is disabled), outputs that
are configured to be activated by these detection zones will operate
according to their actual configuration, i.e. Silent Alarm, Small Alarm
or Large Alarm as follows:
When a fire alarm signal from the first detector in alarm is received,
the following will occur:
1. The detection zone will enter the Silent Alarm state, and all
FPE outputs configured to be activated on Silent Alarm will be
activated. The (T1) delay period will start.
2. When the T1 delay period expires, the detection zone will
enter the Small Alarm state. All FPE outputs configured to be
activated on Small Alarm will be activated. The (T2) delay
period will start.
3. When the T2 delay period expires, the detection zone will
enter the Large Alarm state. All FPE outputs configured to be
activated on Large Alarm will operate.
Note that, at any time, if an alarm from a second detector within the
same detection zone is received, the detection zone will always enter
the Large Alarm State. This will mean that all (not yet activated) FPE's
configured to be activated on Silent, Small and Large Alarm will be
activated.
Pressing the reset button during a delay period will terminate the
delay period (T1 or T2).
In Night Mode (Immediate Output Actioning is enabled), outputs are
always activated on the first detector in alarm and the system will
always enter the Large Alarm state. As with Day Mode this will mean
that all (not yet activated) FPE's configured to be activated on Silent,
Small and Large Alarm will operate.
Note that when a manual call-point (point delay OFF) is
activated, or when a Heat Detector (point delay OFF) sends an
alarm signal, a Delayed Coincidence detection zone will always
enter the Large Alarm state directly, regardless of Day or Night
Mode.
In an alarm situation, the actioning of outputs will behave as described
above, provided that;
• the detection zone has been defined as a Delayed Coincidence
detection zone (configurable)
and
• the point(s) in this Delayed Action detection zone has been set to
point delay ON (the default configuration)

Operation Mode
3.18.6 Solas Detection Zones
When the operator panel receives a fire alarm signal from a point in a
SOLAS - Safety of Life at Sea - detection zone (configurable), all
actions will be initiated after a programmed delay has expired.
The (T1) delay period is started when a signal from a point is
received. Pressing Action digit 4, which represents BLOCK ALARM,
will terminate the delay period and block the alarm for an indefinite
period of time.
SOLAS applies to fire Alarm Devices (FAD), Fire Alarm Routing
Equipment (FARE) - detectors only, and Fire Protection Equipment
(FPE) - option.

The list above covers the most common events. In addition to these, a
great number of combinations of events may, of course, occur.
The operational information included in chapter 3, plus the overview of
buttons and indicators in chapter 2, are intended to provide the
information necessary to successfully operate the AutroSafe
Interactive Fire Alarm System. As additional help, messages in the
Information Field will tell you at any time what options you have.
Note that the optional alarm presentation with zonal indication is
used throughout the handbook.
For each event there is an overview of all indications on the panel,
plus the necessary actions to take. All alarm handling and display
pictures shown in the subsequent chapters are based on the
following:
• The system is in Operation Mode.
• To operate the panel, Access Level 2 is required. This means that
the person who operates the panel, must use a key before the
panel can be operated. This is indicated with a key.
• The examples show a system that is configured to immediately
trigger Fire Alarm Routing Equipment and send a message to a
Fire Receiving Station (Fire Brigade) in the event of a fire alarm.
The Fire Brig. Signalled indicator will thus come on.
• As you proceed through the steps in the different events, the
comments field will, when necessary, provide additional
information and show the different options you have.
• In many cases, several display pictures will be shown when a
command has been executed. These quick changes from one
display picture to another are indicated with an arrow.

6.1 Indications - Fire Alarm with Alarm Delay
A point set to Delayed Action (configurable) is sending an alarm signal from a Delayed Action
detection zone in a situation where Immediate Output Actioning has been disabled, i.e. the alarm
delay has been activated.
NOTE:
An alarm from a manual call-point is normally configured to give immediate actioning on the
alarm outputs even though Immediate Output Actioning has been disabled.
The following shows the indications on the Operator Panel in the
event of «Fire Alarm with Alarm Delay» within the operation zone of
the panel.
The text display indicates the detection zones in alarm state and their
location. In addition, the following information is shown by operating the

11.4 Disabling Activated / Deactivated Components
When you disable an active component, for example, a sounder
issuing an alarm signal, the component will immediately switch to the
OFF state without any user notification and/or confirmation cause.
A disablement of a deactivated component, for example, a sounder
not issuing an alarm signal, will have no immediate effect on system
operation.
Both activated and deactivated disabled components will remain
switched off until enabled.
11.5 Disabling Detection Zones
When you disable a Detection Zone - all points within the specified
detection zone will be disabled. A detection zone will not be indicated
as disabled unless all points within the zone have been disabled.
A disablement time can be set. When the disablement time expires,
the detection zone will automatically be enabled. The detection zone
can also be enabled manually from the Enable Menu.

11.6 Disabling Points
When you disable a Point (fire detectors / manual call-points), no
alarm signal or fault signal from this point will be sent in the event of
an alarm / fault.
A disablement time can be set. When the disablement time expires,
the point(s) will automatically be enabled. The point(s) can also be
enabled manually from the Enable Menu.
If all points in a detection zone are disabled, the detection zone will be
indicated as disabled. If at least one point within this detection zone is
enabled manually, the detection zone will be indicated as enabled. If
the points are given different disablement times, the detection zone
will be automatically indicated as enabled when the first point is
enabled (i.e. when the point with the shortest disablement time is
enabled).
11.7 Disabling Fire Alarm Devices
When you disable a Fire Alarm Device (FAD), the output which
controls the FAD will be disabled. The FAD will thus give no audible
indication.
You can disable a single unit (FAD) / alarm circuit, or all units (FADs)
in a selected Alarm Zone.
A disablement time can be set. When the disablement time expires,
the FAD(s) will automatically be enabled. The single FAD or all FADs
in a selected Alarm Zone can also be enabled manually from the
Enable Menu.
11.8 Disabling Fire Alarm Routing Equipment
When you disable Fire Alarm Routing Equipment (FARE), the output
which controls such equipment will be disabled. In the event of an
alarm, no fire alarm signals / fault signals will be sent to the fire
brigade.
A disablement time can be set. When the disablement time expires,
the Fire Alarm Routing Equipment will automatically be enabled. The
equipment can also be enabled manually from the Enable Menu.
11.9 Disabling Outputs
When you disable outputs which control Fire Protection Equipment
(FPE), in the event of an alarm / fault, no signals will be sent to trigger
the equipment. You can disable a single output, or all outputs in the
Operation Zone.
A disablement time can be set. When the disablement time expires,
the outputs which control Fire Protection Equipment will automatically
be enabled. The outputs can also be enabled manually from the
Enable Menu.

11.10 Disabling Fault Warning Routing Equipment
When you disable Fault Warning Routing Equipment (FWRE), the
output which controls such equipment will be disabled. In the event of
a fault, no fault warning signals will be sent to, for example, the
security firm.
A disablement time can be set. When the disablement time expires,
the Fault Warning Routing Equipment will automatically be enabled.
The equipment can also be enabled manually from the Enable Menu.
11.11 Disabling Immediate Output Actioning
In an alarm situation, the actioning of outputs in a Delayed Action
detection zone can be delayed (refer to Delayed Action detection
zones, page 28). To achieve a delay, Immediate Output Actioning
must be disabled.
It is possible to disable immediate output actioning for all Day / Night
areas or for selected Day / Night areas.
Note: A Day / Night area encompasses one or more detection zones
within the same operation zone.
The delay affects the actioning of outputs to Fire Alarm Devices
(FAD), Fire Alarm Routing Equipment (FARE) and/or Fire Protection
Equipment (FPE).
Note that an alarm from a manual call-point will normally (point delay
OFF) give immediate ouput actioning even though the immediate
output actioning has been disabled.
The function is useful in situations where you want to disable
immediate output actioning at special periods to avoid causing any
unnecessary disturbance.

13.8 How to Initialize the Fire Alarm System
The AutroSafe Interactive Fire Alarm System is automatically
initialized when the panel is turned on. However, in certain cases it
may be necessary to manually initialize the panel. In situations where
the loop topology has been changed in some way, for example, two
detectors have changed places or have been removed, a service
command (Clear Topology) has to be executed. When this command
is completed, the control panel has to be initialized manually.
The procedure below describes how to manually initialize the fire
alarm system.

14.3.1.2 Entering Test Mode
To be able to manually test points (detectors or manual call-points)
without automatic actioning of Fire Protection Equipment (FPE), Fire
Alarm Routing Equipment (FARE) or Fire Alarm Devices (FAD),
detection zones can be set in test mode (ENTER TEST MODE). If a
detection zone has been set to test mode, any point connected to this
zone can be tested (with, for example, test gas) without automatic
actioning (i..e. audible indication) from sounders, bells, etc.
In the SHOW STATUS menu (main menu selection 1), you can now
verify that a point you have tested (for example, a detector you have
tested with test gas) operates properly - without audible indication.
As shown on the example below, a message on a status line will
appear (Alarm test), indicating that the alarm signal has been sent
from the tested point (in this example, P2, optical detector).

14.3.2.2 Manual Test ON- Fire Alarm Devices (FAD)
This chapter describes how to test Fire Alarm Devices. The test
requires Access Level 3 (password restricted).
When the test is initiated, a test signal will be sent to all Fire Alarm
Devices within the selected Alarm Zone. The duration of the signal
and the interval between each signal are configurable (normally 1
second ON and 30 seconds OFF).
The test signal is given the lowest priority. In the event of an alarm,
the alarm signal will thus override the test signal.

The test signal is given the lowest priority. In the event of an alarm,
the alarm signal will thus override the test signal.
14.3.2.4 Manual Test ON- Fire Warning Routing Equipment (FWRE)
The test is similar to the test for Fire Alarm Devices (FAD) and it
requires Access Level 3 (password restricted). For detailed
description, refer to 14.3.2.2.
When the test is initiated, a test signal will be sent to all Fire Warning
Routing Equipment (FWRE) within the Operation Zone (if there are
several Operation Zones, the signal will be sent to FARE in all
Operation Zones). The duration of the signal and the interval between
each signal are configurable (normally 1 second ON and 30 seconds
OFF).
The test signal is given the lowest priority. In the event of an alarm,
the alarm signal will thus override the test signal.

Explanation
Activation
To bring a component into (one of) its active activation states (depending
on type, a component may have several active activation states). Examples
of activation are turning a fire extinguisher on and making a sounder to
issue a EVACUATE or ALERT signal. Components may be activated and
deactivated either on command or on alarm.
Alarm Zone
The geographical area throughout which Fire Alarm Devices give identical
alarm signals present identical audible information in response to the same
event. An alarm zone is activated by one or several Detection Zones.
The alarm zone assigned to the detection zone in alarm is called the parent
alarm zone. Fire Alarm Devices in a parent alarm zone will always give
EVACUATE signal.
To any (parent) alarm zone there may be defined a number of neighbour
alarm zones. Fire Alarm Devices in neighbour alarm zones will give alert
signal when its parent alarm zone gives EVACUATE signal.
AUTROLON
Autronica’s Local Operating Network
BLC-Eq
Basic Loop Controller Equipment (equipment part for all Loop Units and I/O
modules, i.e. Eq-part for Loop-Ctrl, Point-Ctrl, FPE-Ctrl etc.)
Component
An assembly of one or more modules, implementing a system function. The
following components are defined in the AutroSafe Interactive Fire Alarm
System (also see detailed description of Components, Chapter 1):
• Points (fire detectors, manual call points)
• Detection Zones
• Fire Protection Equipment (fire extinguishers, ventilation controllers)
• Fire Alarm Devices (sounders, information panel, visual indicator)
• Fire Alarm Routing Equipment
• Fault Warning Routing Equipment
• Operator Panels
Condition
Meaning similar to «state», but used only in conjunction with the control and
indication equipment. (EN54 standard).
Control and indicating
equipment (c.i.e)
Equipment supplying power to, as well as accepting fault and alarm signals
from detectors. A c.i.e. will indicate an alarm condition audibly as well as
visibly and indicate the location of danger.
Deactivation
To bring a component into its inactive activation state (a component can
have only one inactive activation state). Examples of deactivation are
turning a fire extinguisher off and silencing a sounder.
Detection Loop
Loop circuit connecting a number of fire detectors, manual call-points and
other Loop Units. A detector loop is connected to control and indicating
equipment.
Detection Zone
One or more fire detectors and/or manual call-points logically belonging
together for geographical, functional or other reasons.
Domain Network
The domain network consists of a number of components, connected over
AUTROLON.
Fault Warning Routing
Equipment (FWRE)
Intermediate equipment which routes a fault warning signal from (B) to a
fault warning signal receiving station.
Fire Alarm Device
(FAD)
Equipment used to give warning of fire, for example, sounder or visual
indicator.

Fire Alarm Recieving
Station
A centre from which the necessary fire protection measures can be initiated
at any time.
Fire Alarm Routing
Equipment (FARE)
Intermediate equipment which routes an alarm signal from control and
indicating equipment to a Fire Alarm Receiving Station.
Fire Detector
The part of an automatic fire detection system which constantly or at
frequent intervals monitors suitable physical and/or chemical phenomena
for detection of fires in the area under surveillance.
Fire Protection
Equipment (FPE)
Fire control or fighting equipment, e.g. extinguishing installation.
Loop Unit
Either a Point, and I/O-unit or and Electronic Sounder that is connected to a
Detection Loop.
Manual Call-Point
A device for the manual initiation of an alarm.
Operation Zone
An Operation Zone defines the scope of an Operator Panel. One operation
zone may encompass one or more detection zones. Operation zones are
allowed to be contained in other operation zones, building an hierarchy
consisting of different levels of operation zones.
Operation zones must be fully contained in each other, i.e. the operation
zone can not be partly contained in (overlap) another operation zone.
One operation zone may be controlled by more than one Operator Panel.
Point
Detectors or manual call-points. Each point is assigned zone membership
on individual basis. A point can be a member of one detection zone only.
A point may signal a number of different alarm levels. A manual call-point
can only signal a Fire Alarm Level.
To each point there will be assigned a delay parameter, notifying whether
actions to be initiated upon reception of a Fire Alarm signal from the point
should be delayed or not. The delay parameter is only valid in conjunction
with Delayed Action or SOLAS.
SOLAS
A program version of the AutroSafe software, spesially designed for
maritime application - Safety Of Life At Sea (SOLAS).

15.2 Zonal Definitions
15.2.1 General
To describe the functional hierarchy of the system we use the term
"zone". Assigning system components to zones enables hierarchical
control from detection to activation of alarm. This hierarchy consists of
the following zones:
• Detection Zone (DZ)
• Alarm Zone (AZ)
• Operation Zone (OZ)

15.2.2 Detection Zone
A Detection Zone (DZ) is defined as a zone with one or more points
(detectors or manual call-points) that logically belong together,
determined by geographical/functional parameters (for example, the
sales department on the second floor).
A point can only be assigned to one detection zone, and can only
refer to one specific location in the system (for example, a specific
office on the second floor in a building).
The Detection Zone will be the trigger to generate outputs to the
Alarm Zone.
Operator's Handbook, AutroSafe Interactive Fire Alarm System, Release 3, ASAFE-FO/FE Rev. I, 2009-02-27,
Autronica Fire and Security AS
Page 119
Appendix
15.2.3 Alarm Zone
An Alarm Zone (AZ) is activated by one or several detection zones.
Example:
An alarm from one of the devices in DZ3 will activate sounders in AZ1.
Within the same alarm zone, alarm sounders give the same audible
signal.
Geographically associated alarm zones can be defined as neighbour
zones, such that these can operate outputs for alarm zones adjacent
to the incident.
15.2.4 Operation Zone
An Operation Zone (OZ) defines the scope of an Operator Panel.
The operation zone can cover one floor or one building, and is
designed to restrict the operators’ sphere of influence on the system
as a whole. At least one Fire Alarm Control Panel / Operator Panel
should have the overall control of the system.
Operation zones on higher levels may encompass several other
operation zones.
Input / Output units (for example, Door Control Units, Sprinkler Control
Units etc.) can be controlled from an Operation Zone.
An Operation Zone given these properties and necessary parameter
settings is referred to as a Control Operation Zone.
Different day / night operation for different areas (i.e. detection zones)
requires the use of several Operation Zones / sub-operation zones
with different Day / Night Operation. An Operation Zone given these
properties and necessary parameter settings is referred to as a Day /
Night Operation Zone.

Appendix
15.2.5 Configuration Example
An example of a typical configuration would be as follows:
• Each single room with one or several detectors is defined as a
Detection Zone, DZ1, DZ2, etc.
• Each corridor and stairway is defined as a Detection Zone.
• Two main sections on each floor, divided by a fire wall, are each
defined as an Alarm Zone, AZ1 and AZ2. These alarm zones are
also defined as neighbour alarm zones.
• The entire building, controlled and monitored by a Fire Alarm
Control Panel (operator panel), is defined as an Operation Zone,
OZ.
