FIRE STROBE 2000 INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
I.
SITE INSPECTION FOR INSTALLATION
1.
Carefully inspect the area where the Fire Strobe 2000 will be installed. Proper
placement of the photoeye assembly is necessary for optimum performance.
2.
The photoeye assembly must be mounted on a structural post to
accommodate the height requirement of approximately 8' to 10'. The post should
be strong enough to prevent accidental movement of the photoeye assembly after
installation.
3.
Avoid conflicts with buildings and trees that can obstruct the photoeye assembly.
Careful consideration should be given in the event the approach is on a hill.The
detector should be mounted accordingly.
4.
DO NOT aim the photoeye detector in direct sunlight. This will cause the system
to temporarily blind itself during the period of direct sunlight. Use the furnished
P.V.C. hood to help shield the photoeye from the sunlight.
5.
Note the direction from which the emergency vehicles will arrive at
the scene. If the arrival is from two directions, you should use two
photoeye detector heads to achieve bi-directional coverage.
II.
PHOTOEYE ASSEMBLY POST
1.
Fabricate and install a 2" x 2" x 8' mounting post. Attach the provided PEA
assembly to the top of the post to mount the assembly with two screws. DO NOT
GLUE the assembly. You must be able to aim the photoeye assembly in the
direction of the approaching emergency traffic. Now, remove the assembly and
complete the wiring as described below.
III.
MOUNTING THE CABINET
1
1.
We suggest that you mount the control cabinet directly below the post, possibly
inside of the wall or fence line. This will help prevent vandalism. Do not install
control board in a box with another gate related circuit board.
2.
Remove the circuit board from the unit by removing the four screws
and solder lug that hold the four corners. Try to discharge any static that you
may have built up before handling the board.
3.
Determine which of the two openings in the box will be used to
run the wires into the cabinet. Run the wires through the ½ inch
conduit into the bottom opening of the cabinet.
4.
Carefully remove the knockout plug from the opening that will be
used.
5.
Mount the unit securely. Pull the cables described below into the
cabinet and remount the circuit board.
IV.
PULLING THE CABLES
1.
Pull four cables to the control box: P1) use 18 awg, 2-conductor cable that runs
the power supply. P2) an 18 to 24 awg, 2- conductor shielded cable that
runs to the photoeye assembly.
DO NOT use multi-conductor shielded cable or CAT 5.
P3) use 18 awg, 2-conductor cable that connects to gate operator.
4) 14awg ground wire
V.
MAKING CONNECTIONS
1.
On the photoeye assembly remove the terminal block from the three pin
connector at the bottom of the circuit board. Connect it to the 2-conductor
shielded cable.
NOTE: #1 Shield , #2 SIG, #3 GND
NOTE: You must connect the shield of the photoeye assembly to the PC
board green ground wire, which is attached at one of the four corners of the
board. And this ground must be attached to earth ground.
Reinstall it on the terminal block pins. If you are going to use the AC power to run
the system, connect the other end of the cable to the provided 12 VAC
transformer. DO NOT plug the transformer into a 110 VAC outlet yet.
2
If you are going to use the DC power to run the system, connect the other end of
the cable into a 12 VDC power supply. Please note that the Fire Strobe 2000 will
not trickle charge a battery.
Therefore, your DC power supply must have its own charging
circuit. DO NOT plug in the transformer for the power supply yet.
2.
Remove the terminal block from P2 the Four pin connector at the bottom of the
circuit board. Connect it to the 2-conductor shielded cable according to the
following scheme if possible:
#1 PHOTOEYE DETECTOR (SIG to IN1 and GND to GND
#2 PHOTOEYE DETECTOR (SIG to IN2 and GND to GND
NOTE: You must connect the shield of the photoeye
assembly to the PC board green ground wire, which is
attached at one of the four corners of the board. And this ground
must be attached to earth ground.
Reinstall it on the terminal block pins.
3.
Ground the enclosure thoroughly. The detector contains a number
of static-sensitive components that can be damaged destroyed by static
discharge.The lug connected to the lower right stanchion is the point where
connection to the ground should be made.
4.
Plug in the 12 VAC transformer provided with the Fire Strobe 2000
do not share this transformer power with other equipment it can
damage the Firestrobe board.
VI.
RELAY CONFIGURATION
1.
The system is provided with dual relay outputs, including common,
N/O, and N/C terminals to be hooked up to the gate controller at
either the relay or logic input. Note: The maximum rating of the
Fire Strobe 2000 relay is 500 ma, 24 VAC.
2.
Remove the relay terminal block from the six pin connector at the
bottom right corner of the circuit board. Connect your common,
N/O-N/C gate controller input to these terminals.
3.
Acquisition delay time before operating the relay. These switches
DO add together to give 4 possible selections.
3
SW1=off SW2=off-----500 milliseconds Factory setting
SW1=on SW2=off-----1 second
SW1=off SW2=on-----1.5 seconds
SW1=on SW2=on-----2 seconds
These times are nominal at 14hz or 840 flashes per minute. The times
are shorter by about 20% at 1000 fpm and about 20% longer at 750 fpm.
4.
#3 on = STROBEWATCH this new feature when turned on allows the
FIRESTROBE 2000 to look for both the Opticom emitter and the
STROBEWATCH. It is our new optical recognition firmware that searches for
Police and other Emergency vehicle strobes and operates the relay on valid
signals. If you feel you are receiving false inputs turn #3 off to deactivate this
feature.
5.
To set relay Hold-On-Time, set dip switch SW1 as follows:
#4 on = 30minutes
#5 on = 12 minutes
#6 on = 6 minutes
#7 on = 1.5 minutes
#8 on = 6 seconds
6.
An operational test of the system should be performed to ensure proper gate
operation. To check the system's performance, aim an operational strobe light or
handheld tester at the photoeye detector assembly. Be certain that the strobe
frequency is set at 840 flashes per minute or the required frequency in your fire
jurisdiction. Note: The D2 LED on the pc-board will start to blink as the strobe
light is activated. The D2 LED will then lock on when the strobe light and the
detector are synchronized. The D4 LED will light at the same time as the relay
locks on. The D4 stays on as the duration of the relay-on-time set is on the dip
switch SW1 #4 - #8.
We recommend that you call your local fire department for a complete system
test. System should be tested monthly.
