INTRODUCTION
The Siemens Fire Safety FireFinder-XLS TM Control System is a powerful intelligent fire
alarm control system. FireFinder-XLS utilizes FirePrint—the most advanced fire
detection technology in the world.
FireFinder-XLS is designed to provide the most reliable life safety and property
protection at the lowest system life cycle cost available anywhere. FireFinder-XLS has
been architected to be easy to install, commission and operate. The FireFinder-XLS
System is totally modular to satisfy any size building fire alarm needs.
A basic FireFinder-XLS control system consists of the PMI operator interface and
central processor, a PSC-12 power supply and battery charger, a PTB power termination board, a DLC intelligent device loop controller, and ZIC-4A zone indicating card.
This basic two loop system can monitor up to 252 intelligent detectors and devices
and provides up to 12 Amps of 24VDC power for use in driving the basic 4 notification appliance circuits. These supervised notification appliance circuits can be software configured for a wide variety of functions— such as standard NAC operation
(bells, horns, chimes), strobes (synchronized or non- synchronized), coded audibles
(Temporal Code 3, Marchtime, Zone Coded, etc), Municipal Tie, Leased Line, Extinguishing agent releasing (FM-200 or Halon) or sprinkler pre-action and deluge applications. The PMI’s large easy-to-read ¼ VGA display simplifies system operator control.
By adding intelligent loop controller cards, FireFinder-XLS can be expanded to support
up to 2500 intelligent detectors and devices spread across a flexible number of DLC
loops. The system can also be expanded by adding additional CC-5 cardcages and
power supplies to support conventional Form C relay modules, network interface
cards for remote enclosure communication, conventional detectors and devices and
solid state output modules—typically for use in driving graphic annunciators.
The FireFinder-XLS system’s operator interface is designed to make status information presentation clear and system control functions simple to operate. Through the
use of soft function buttons on the systems display—prompted by lighted physical
buttons—the user can easily “Acknowledge” events, “Silence” or “Unsilence” building
audibles, or “Reset” the system. The system status presentation is structured to
allow the different types of system events (Alarms, Supervisory, Security, Trouble) to
be viewed independently. Each system event presents the user with a custom
message describing the location of the alarm report and the type of event (manual
alarm, smoke, heat or waterflow). If additional details need to be learned about the
nature of the alarm report or its location – the user can depress the illuminated “More
Info” button. Additional text messages, device specific details and simple graphic
maps tell the user where they are in the building relative to the alarm report for ease
in locating the alarm. For fire fighters responding to the system, standard NFPA Fire
Service icons are presented to alert fire fighters to the availability of fire service
equipment (stand pipe locations, sprinklers, building fire hoses, fire hydrants, etc).
Standard HazMat icons are also presented to notify responding officials of possible
DESCRIPTION
1-1
| CHAPTER 1
FIREFINDER-XLS INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL
hazards or people in that area of the building. Standard NFPA 704 Hazard rating icons
can also be used.
The 32-bit microprocessor CPU at the heart of FireFinder-XLS rapidly processes
logical decisions based on the status of the smoke detection and other initiating
devices to control the system outputs. The object oriented software configuration
tool, Zeus, is used to configure the FireFinder-XLS system’s operation based on the
customer specified operating requirements.
The System continuously checks all software and hardware for proper operation. It
checks all System memory components, control panel electronic hardware, and the
System program. A hardware watchdog circuit is provided to ensure that System
programs are functioning properly. If a problem develops with the program or processor, the watchdog circuit places the System into a trouble condition and resets it.
Each module in the FireFinder-XLS System has its own microprocessor. To ensure
reliable operation, if the main panel’s central processing unit stops, these modules,
operating in degrade, still annunciate any alarm or trouble through common lines
called Any Alarm and A ny Trouble. All of the modules communicate with the main
FireFinder-XLS central processor through an RS-485 network communications
system.
While FireFinder-XLS is designed for multiple applications, such as security point
monitoring, the fire alarm operation is always processed as the highest priority over
all other operating modes.

HLIM Loop Isolator Module The HLIM isolates short circuits on FireFinder-XLS analog loops. By placing devices
between HLIMs during installation, a short in the wiring within that group is disconnected from the rest of the loop. The remainder of the devices continue to operate.
The HLIM operates in both Class A and Class B circuits.
A yellow LED flashes when the HLIM detects a short circuit. The HLIM then isolates
that part of the loop. When the short is removed, the HLIM automatically restores the
loop to normal operation. The HLIM does not have a loop address and therefore
does not require address programming nor does it reduce the loop capacity below
252 devices.

INTRODUCTION
The eight-channel digital evacuation FireFinder-XLS Voice system can be added to the
basic FireFinder-XLS fire alarm system. This is accomplished with the addition of the
DAC-NET Digital Audio card and its accompanying submodules (ZAC, LVM/LPB, SCM-8,
ZIC, FMT, TZC-8B) and zone-installed equipment (speakers, strobes, telephones).
The system is capable of automatically or manually signaling to its installed speaker
zone circuits (ZAC). The signal can be up to eight channels of prerecorded messages
and/or tones including up to two simultaneous channels of live paging. The tones and
prerecorded messages are configurable in the Zeus programming tool and are
available for upload to each installed DAC-NET. A maximum of 32 DAC-NET modules
can be installed in each FireFinder-XLS system. Each DAC-NET may input either its
own tone/message to a channel, or it may be programmed to use a tone/message
from another DAC-NET in the system.
Individual zone circuits (speaker, strobe, telephone) are bundled into geographic
groups during system configuration. These groups are either automatically controlled
by pre-programmed system logic, or manually controlled by the switches located on
one or more Command Stations. Paging, manual control, or monitoring of the speaker
or telephone groups can be performed from any location where an LVM/LPB microphone, SCM switch control module, or PMI is installed.
EQUIPMENT
COMMAND STATIONS
The Control and Indicating equipment of a FinderFinder-XLS Voice system consists of
the following components:
•
LED Control Module (LCM)
•
Switch Control Module (SCM)
•
Live Voice Microphone (LVM)
•
Firefighters Master Telephone (FMT)
•
Telephone Zone Card (TZC-8B)
•
Person Machine Interface (PMI)
Each FireFinder-XLS Command Station configuration is unique. The requirements of
the project determine the modules needed to achieve the desired functionality. The
Control view of the Zeus Programming tool is used to configure the Command
stations. Each switch on the LVM, SCM and FCM may be configured for any of the
manual operations (See page 4-4).
VOICE SYSTEM 4-1
FIREFINDER-XLS INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL
| CHAPTER 4
Figure 4-1
Typical FireFinder-XLS Command Station
A voice system may have one or more different locations of control over the same
installed equipment. Each control station will generally use Request/Grant/Deny
Access switches for managing controls in emergencies, but access restrictions are
Zeus-programmable to the degree allowed by the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ).
A location of voice system control (command station) consists of the following:
1.
A list of Speaker Groups to be controlled/monitored.
2.
A set of Voice Applications to be performed on the Speaker Groups (for
example, ALL CALL, SELECT EVAC, DISPLAY ALERT, etc.).
3.
An LVM microphone.
4.
An optional list of telephone groups and an FMT master phone.
5.
Request/Grant/Deny access.
SYSTEM OPERATION
System Indication
All voice system faults are reported at the PMI, and at the programmed speaker
group control switch. The operator at the PMI is able to ACK, SILENCE/UNSILENCE
and RESET voice system events. For example, in the event of an ALL EVAC, the
Audibles LED on the PMI comes on and the Silence Audibles soft key displays on the
PMI so the system can be silenced from the PMI.
Automatic Operation
The voice system interfaces automatically to the fire alarm system using the speaker
functions in the Function view of the Zeus Programming tool. In reaction to events
from the fire alarm system (DLC devices), the voice alarm system activates its preprogrammed alarm procedures. Typically, the voice alarm system broadcasts an alarm
signal, which is immediately followed with a prerecorded message on the fire floor,
the floor above and the floor below. It is common to have two stage alarms, with
evacuation in some areas and alert in others. LEDs indicate the current system status
and the floors in which the evacuation or alert signal is sounding.
Since this sequence has occurred automatically, only the events that were predetermined in the original system evacuation plan and programmed into the system
configuration program will occur.

VOICE SYSTEM
CHAPTER 4 |
FIREFINDER-XLS INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL
Evacuation Signal (EVAC)
A steady red LED indicates that an evacuation signal (tone or message) is being sent
to the entire building or to selected areas of the building requesting that the occupants evacuate. It is possible to have two different evacuation signals, EVAC 1 and
EVAC 2. EVAC 2 will be overridden by EVAC 1 to the same speaker group.
Alert Signal
A flashing red LED indicates that an ALERT signal (tone or message) is being sent to
the entire building or selected areas to alert occupants. It is possible to have two
different alert signals, ALERT 1 and ALERT 2. ALERT 2 will be overridden by ALERT 1
to the same speaker group.
Manual Operation
Once the first few minutes have been dealt with automatically, the voice alarm
system can be taken over manually by authorized personnel.
Manual voice operation functions such as emergency paging, evacuation or alert
signal activation, firefighters' telephone operation, multiple voice system command
center operation, as well as convenience page or background music operation are
possible at any time.
Emergency Page
Emergency Page allows a live voice page from the emergency microphone to all or
selected speaker groups in the building. An optional preannouncement tone
preceeds emergency pages for a duration of time set in the Zeus programming tool.
Evacuation Signal (EVAC)
EVAC sends the evacuation tone or message (predetermined in system design) to all
or selected speaker groups in the building. The EVAC signal will be overridden by an
emergency page to the same speaker group.
It is possible to have two different evacuation signals, EVAC 1 and EVAC 2. EVAC 2
will be overridden by EVAC 1 to the same speaker group.
Alert Signal
Alert signal sends the alert tone or message (predetermined in system design) to all
or selected speaker groups in the building. The alert signal will be overridden by an
emergency page or an evacuation signal to the same speaker group.
It is possible to have two different alert signals, ALERT 1 and ALERT 2. ALERT 2 will
be overridden by ALERT 1 to the same speaker group.
Convenience Page
Convenience Page allows a live voice page from the convenience page microphone
to all or selected speaker groups in the building. Convenience pages are a low priority
function and will be overridden by an emergency page, an evacuation or an alert
signal to the same speaker group.
Background Music
Background Music sends background music from an external audio input to all or
selected speaker groups in the building. Background Music is the lowest priority and
will be overridden by an emergency page, an evacuation or alert signal and a convenience page to the same speaker group.
SYSTEM PRIORITIES
The priority of requests to a speaker group in the case that multiple signals (audio
channels) are requested at the same time are as follows:
1. Emergency Page (highest priority)
2. Warden‘s (Phone) Page
3. Evacuation Signal 1 (EVAC 1)
4. Evacuation Signal 2 (EVAC 2)
5. Alert Signal 1 (ALERT 1)
6. Alert Signal 2 (ALERT 2)
7. Convenience Page
8. Background Music (lowest priority)

OPERATION PROCEDURE
Switch Control Module
The SCM Switch Control Module is used for manual control of the fire system. The
SCM-8 contains eight switches and eight pairs of LEDs. Each LED pair contains one
bi-color (red/green) and one yellow LED. The functions of the switches and LEDs are
programmed using the Zeus programming tool. All LEDs can be programmed ON,
OFF, or FLASHING.
An “Acknowledge Tone“ sounds on a local sounder for any switch press when a CAN
Sounder Board is installed.
An “Invalid Tone” from the LVM or CAN Sounder Board sounds on a local sounder for
an invalid switch press. For example, a switch press at a non-active control station
produces an invalid tone.
Live Voice Microphone
The LVM Live Voice Module provides firefighters with a means of sending live voice
messages to specified audio zones. The LVM has a push-to-talk switch on the
microphone, as well as a retractable coiled cord. Both the push-to talk switch and the
microphone are supervised. The LVM has a built-in speaker to preview active tones
and messages at any speaker group. Each of the six switches is programmable in the
Zeus tool.

A
ALARM VERIFICATION
Alarm verification provides FireFinder-XLS with a way to verify an alarm from area
type addressable smoke detectors connected to intelligent loops (DLC or HZM). This
feature reduces the incidence of false alarms. Only detectors that do not contain an
integral alarm verification feature can be used.
Addressable detectors connected to DLCs indicate that an alarm condition has been
detected. If the device is subject to alarm verification, the DLC alerts the control
panel that the device has entered verification but is not yet considered to be in alarm.
The DLC starts a timer using the FireFinder-XLS system Retard-Reset Period programmed in the Zeus tool allowing conditions at the device to stabilize. When the
timer expires, the DLC begins the fixed 60-second confirmation period. If the device
is no longer in alarm during the confirmation period, the verification cycle is considered complete and detection of a subsequent alarm from that device results in the
verification cycle restarting. If the device still reports in the alarm state during this
confirmation period, the alarm condition is reported to the control panel and the
system annunciates the alarm condition.
See the figure below for a graphic illustration of Alarm Verification.
For devices connected to the DLC, the Detector Restart period is 0 seconds.

APPLICATION SPECIFIC DETECTION
Application Specific Detection (ASD) allows the system designer (and anyone with
Control menu access) to program an HFP-11 detector’s sensitivity, pre-alarm threshold, and other alarm-related parameters using English descriptions of the detector's
environment (application). This eliminates the need for detailed knowledge of smoke
detector terminology and operation. The designer can set all of the critical detector
parameters by simply selecting an application description that closely fits the one
where the detector is to be installed.
For example, to use ASD to select the optimal parameters for a detector in a hotel
lobby, select the LOBBY application in the Zeus tool for that device. The system will
automatically transmit the factory determined sensitivity, pre-alarm threshold, and
detection algorithm (R-algorithm) to the corresponding device. This eliminates the
guesswork of selecting these parameters for different environments.

INTELLIGENT ENVIRONMENTAL COMPENSATION (IEC)
Intelligent Environmental Compensation (IEC) is an optional feature that permits the
FireFinder-XLS system to compensate automatically for environmental changes (such
as dirt and dust buildup) in the analog voltage of an HFP-11 detector. The selection of
IEC devices is made in the Zeus programming tool.
Once a detector is chosen to be covered by IEC, FireFinder-XLS stores and analyzes
the analog readings of the smoke detector and adjusts the detector’s threshold
upward or downward, as necessary, to maintain a constant sensitivity.
As the analog voltage increases due to environmental factors, an equivalent increase
in the detector’s alarm threshold prevents factors other than smoke from causing an
alarm. This method maintains the selected detector’s sensitivity.
Typically, the analog voltage changes slowly over long periods of time for environmental factors, but changes quickly over short periods of time for actual smoke.
Initial System Power-Up
When a new or modified Zeus configuration is loaded into a system, the FireFinder-XLS
PMI goes through an initial system power-up. FireFinder-XLS does not keep the IEC
option where it was formerly applied when this new system powers up. The IEC
memory re-initializes, and then FireFinder-XLS begins adjusting the alarm thresholds
wherever IEC is selected in the new Zeus configuration.

FIREFINDER-XLS INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL
Adjusting the Alarm
Threshold When a New
Zeus is Uploaded
| APPENDIX C
After FireFinder-XLS checks that the actual ID of a device with IEC agrees with Zeus,
it adjusts the detector’s alarm threshold according to the data stored. The first
adjustment occurs after 100 hours of data accumulation. In the case of power cycling
or resetting, adjustments begin within 90 seconds.
If a detector with IEC reports an alarm condition before the detector’s alarm threshold is adjusted, the alarm delays until the alarm threshold is adjusted. If the device
continues to report an alarm condition once its alarm threshold is adjusted, the alarm
reports.
If the Zeus and the device ID do not agree, the IEC for that device does not activate
until the trouble condition is removed from the system and the panel is reset.
Ongoing Adjustments of
the Alarm Threshold
IEC Trouble Conditions
Environmental conditions usually cause a small change in the analog voltage over a
long period of time. At regular intervals FireFinder-XLS collects analog data for each
detector with IEC and adjusts the alarm threshold accordingly. FireFinder-XLS adjusts
for both up and down changes in the analog voltage. In addition, if system power is
lost, FireFinder-XLS adjusts the alarm thresholds as needed by using stored data.
A trouble condition involving the IEC may be annunciated by the FireFinder-XLS PMI
as:
PRE-DIRTY ANALOG VOLT. REACHED
OR
IEC LIMIT REACHED. SERVICE REQ
The trouble conditions shown above are annunciated on a detector-by-detector basis
as each detector is checked.
FireFinder-XLS annunciates a trouble condition for a detector when its alarm threshold
reaches a predetermined limit. The operator should acknowledge the trouble, clean
the detector if possible, and reset the control panel. If the detector is not cleaned, the
control panel annunciates this trouble condition after every panel reset until the
detector is cleaned.

set the device usage to security; otherwise, the device usage defaults to fire alarm.
•
When setting the device address using the DPU, select the normally closed
alarm causing input.
•
Connect only one switch per HTRI input.
•
Use an HTSW-1 tamper switch to monitor the main enclosure.
•
Monitor each HTRI-S/-D/-R related to this application for 24 hours by using a
