1.1
The QX-mini Emergency and Fire Alarm Audio System
The QX-mini operates either as a mass notification audio system or as part of a fire alarm
system. Conventional fire alarm systems control the QX-mini with relays. Any of the Mircom/
Secutron panels listed in Table 2 can control the QX-mini.
Mircom’s QX-mini is an emergency and fire alarm audio system designed to provide
notification for small to medium applications. The QX-mini supplies 30W for audio output and
5A for NAC. The optional QAD-30 increases audio output to 60W.
Optional QX-mini-BP Booster Panels provide support for a distributed system. These Booster
Panels have the same output as the QX-mini but do not have microphones or user interface
panels. Up to five Booster Panels can be connected to a QX-mini.
For a list of QX-mini models, components, and accessories, see Table 1.

4.3
Amplifier Connections
The QAD-30 amplifier module has two speaker outputs (OUTPUT 1 and OUTPUT 2). Each
output can produce up to 30 W of audio power, but the combined power of both outputs cannot
exceed 30 W. For example, if OUTPUT 1 produces 20 W, then OUTPUT 2 can only produce
10 W; if OUTPUT 1 produces 30 W, then OUTPUT 2 cannot power any speakers. An optional
second QAD-30 can be installed to either provide up to 60 W of output (30 W maximum per
QAD-30).
Each output can be wired as Class A or Class B. See Figure 43 for examples on how to wire
each of these classes. For Class B circuits, use a 22K 2W end-of-line resistor such as
Mircom’s EOL-223.

Caution:
Powering the system with incorrectly installed amplifiers will cause
permanent damage.

Indicators and Controls
Indicators and controls on the QX-mini are found on the main display panel, the main board,
and the QAD-30 amplifier module. The main display panel has indicators (LEDs) that provide
status information and controls (buttons) for operating the QX-mini. For troubleshooting
purposes, there are LEDs located on the main board and on the QAD-30 amplifier module that
show Trouble, Alarm, Status, and Active for the main board components.
Indicators may be Yellow, Red, or Green. Indicators may illuminate continuously (steady), or
flash at the Trouble Flash Rate of 20 flashes per minute with a 50% duty cycle.
Controls are used to select zone(s), select a pre-recorded message, or to acknowledge a
trouble alert. There is also one DIP switch used for configuration.

for either Stage 1 or Stage 2 alarm activation (as common relay)
6.2.2 Synch Inputs
The QX-mini can receive a synchronizing signal from the FACP for panel and NAC control.
i
86
Note:
The inter-panel synchronization supports up to a total of four units.
Operation
Sample setups:
• one QX-mini panel (generating synchronization) and three QX-mini-BP units
• one QX-mini panel and a FACP (regenerating synchronization from FACP) and two QX-mini-BP units
• one QX-mini-BP unit (generating synchronization) and three QX-mini-BP units
6.3
NAC (Output) Circuits Types
Signal
Used by audible devices, such as bells and piezo mini-horns. The QX-mini permits
synchronized NAC function. While sounding, these devices follow the pattern appropriate for
the condition:
•
the configured Evacuation Code (default is Temporal Code) during Single-Stage Alarm
•
Two-Stage General Alarm
•
the Alert Code during Two-Stage’s Alert (First) Stage.
Strobe
Visual devices, such as strobes, use no code pattern (flash as continuous).
Synchronized Strobes
These are visual devices (such as strobes) that support Mircom, Potter, System Sensor,
Gentex, Wheelock proprietary code patterns and require configuration to the appropriate
pattern.
6.4
NAC Sync Modes
The QX-mini is capable of generating signal rates internally or receiving the synchronizing
signals externally. Also, the QX-mini can synchronize the signal rates for another QX-mini-BP
in a Master - Slave relationship.
i
i
Note:
All NAC circuits are synchronized.
Note:
The inter-panel synchronization supports up to a total of four units.
Sample setups:
• one QX-mini panel (generating synchronization) and three QX-mini-BP units
• one QX-mini panel and a FACP (regenerating synchronization from FACP) and two QX-mini-BP units
• one QX-mini-BP unit (generating synchronization) and three QX-mini-BP units
6.4.1 Internal Sync Mode
In this mode all signal and synchronizing strobe rates are produced in the QX-mini. When a
NAC circuit is initiated by the FACP, the NAC output signals are internally generated based on
how the software is configured.
87
Operation
The Sync Outputs will be activated when one of the NAC circuits has been activated. If two
stage operation is used, Sync Output1 produces the rate for the first stage signal and Sync
Output 2 produces the rate for the second stage signal.
To enable Internal Sync Mode:
1. Configure in Software utility
For information on the configurator software, see Chapter 10.0 Configuration - Software.
6.4.2 External Sync Mode
In this mode, externally generated synchronizing information is feed to the QX-mini. The
QX-mini outputs follow the signal pattern of the Sync Input. All synchronization signals are
supplied either from the FACP or from the QX-mini.
!
Attention: If a Sync signal is disconnected then devices following that signal will
cease functioning.
i
Note:
The inter-panel synchronization supports up to a total of four units.
Sample setups:
• one QX-mini panel (generating synchronization) and three QX-mini-BP units
• one QX-mini panel and a FACP (regenerating synchronization from FACP) and two QX-mini-BP units
• one QX-mini-BP unit (generating synchronization) and three QX-mini-BP units
To enable External Sync Mode:
1. Configure in Software.
6.4.3 Redundant Input
The system continuously monitors the SLC loop. If there is no activity for an extended period
(80 seconds typical), an SLC trouble will be generated.
If multiple inputs are mapped to the same output zone then, as a redundancy, any single input
of the zone will activate that zone’s output.

Paging
Use the microphone on the QX-mini, a QX-mini-RM remote microphone call box, or a
QX-mini-LOC local operating console to page zones. Use All Call to page all zones at the
same time.
To page the audio system with the QX-mini OR QX-mini-LOC:
1. From the control panel, select the zone(s) to page by pressing that zone button until its
LED indicates green.
If All Call is selected, all zone LEDs will light.
If no zones are selected, the page will go to all zones (same as selecting All Call).
2. Unhook the microphone from its housing, and then press the Push-To-Talk (PTT) button
on the microphone.
The Clear Selection LED indicates green and Pre-Tone Active LED indicates green. If
the Clear Selection LED does not light green, then another microphone with a higher
priority has control of the audio channel. The system will not page when another
operator’s microphone has control. The QX-mini master microphone has highest priority.
3. When the Ready To Page LED lights green, the operator may begin the page.
4. When finished the page, release the PTT button on the microphone.
Any pre-selected zone LEDs will signal steady and those zones will remain available for
further paging. Press Clear Selection to clear all active zone indicators.
If an All Call was made, all zones and zone LEDs will reset when the PTT button is
released.
To page the audio system with the QX-mini-RM:
1. Unhook the microphone from its housing, and then press the Push-To-Talk (PTT) button
on the microphone.
If the System in Use LED flashes yellow, another microphone with a higher priority has
control of the audio channel. The system will not page when another operator’s
microphone has control. The QX-mini master microphone has highest priority.
2. When the Ready To Page LED lights green, begin the page.
3. When finished the page, release the PTT button on the microphone.
Page Inhibited on the QX-mini or QX-mini-LOC:
1. During a page or prior to beginning a page, the FACP triggers an alarm or fire drill. On
the FACP, alarm visual indicators will illuminate and any assigned alarm message will
play.
The assigned LED for the Page Inhibited will flash yellow at trouble rate, indicating why
paging will not function.
Note: During the Page Inhibited, the PTT will not activate a page until the user-set period
of time expires.
2. Wait until the Page Inhibited LED is extinguished (even if alarm is active) then press PTT
button, pre-tone will play, and paging ability resumes.

Audio Priorities
The QX-mini prioritizes audio channels in the following order:
1. QX-mini master microphone
2. QX-mini-RM remote microphone or QX-mini-LOC
Remote microphone priorities are configured either as first-come-first-served or by
remote microphone addresses. For example, when a higher priority interface is activated
then all control is reset and is given to the higher priority interface, thus blocking all lower
priority interfaces. In all cases, the QX-mini master microphone maintains highest priority
and its control will pre-empt any activity on the QX-mini-RMs and QX-mini-LOCs. For
information on setting remote microphone priorities, see SW2 address on QX-mini-RM
AND QX-mini-LOC board.

10.1 System Checkout
The following are the recommended steps before and during the powering up of the QX-MINI.
10.1.1 Before Turning The Power ON
1. To prevent sparking, DO NOT connect the batteries first. Connecting the batteries is only
to be done after the system has been powered from the main AC Supply.
2. Check all field (external) wiring for opens, shorts, and ground.
3. Check that all interconnection cables are secure, and that all terminals are plugged-in
properly.
4. Check all Jumpers and Switches for proper setting.
5. Check the AC power wiring for proper connection.
6. Check that the chassis is connected to EARTH GROUND (cold water pipe).
7. Close the front cover plate before powering the system from main AC supply.
10.1.2 Power-up Procedure
1. After completing the previous procedures, power-up the panel. The green AC-ON LED
should illuminate.
2. Since the batteries are not connected, the Battery Trouble LED should illuminate, the
Trouble / Trouble Silence LED should flash and the Common Trouble Relay (on the
main board) will be active.
3. Connect the batteries while observing correct polarity; the red wire is positive (+) and
black wire is negative (-).
4. All indicators should extinguish except for the normal power AC-ON green LED.

System Checkout
10.2.2 Circuit Trouble
When a circuit trouble occurs, the Trouble / Trouble Silence indicator will be illuminated, the
Trouble Buzzer will sound, and the Common Trouble Relay will be Active. Additionally, the
corresponding LED on the particular main board will be illuminated. This can be viewed by
opening the panel and looking along the top of the board. To correct the fault, check for open
wiring, shorts, and missing EOL on that particular circuit loop.
10.2.3 Battery Trouble
Check for the presence of batteries, their conditions, and any conduits in QX-mini, QX-miniBP, and BC-160 External Battery Cabinets. Low voltage (below 20.4V) will cause a battery
trouble. If battery trouble condition persists, replace batteries as soon as possible.
10.2.4 Trouble / Trouble Silence
If only a Trouble / Trouble Silence is indicated on the main panel and none of those above
confirming trouble indicators are on, then check the following for possible fault.
•
consult QX-mini main board for LEDs first. FACP will display more information (if
configured). QX-mini-LOC will display similar information.
•
inspect for any missing interconnection wiring
•
inspect for improperly secured cabling or cable ties
•
appraise state of wires, shielding, isolation components (i.e. ground wire)
10.2.5 Ground Faults
A ground fault indication means that a wire is completing an electrical circuit but not by
following its intended path. The ground fault LED will light when the QX-mini detects a change
in voltage beyond the necessary range for its programming.
To determine location of ground fault:
1. Unplug terminals to isolate involved circuits and/or terminals.
2. Use a voltmeter on the suspect wiring to measure for any out of range voltages, based
on the panel configuration.
3. Replace the necessary components.
4. Once the ground fault is remedied, the ground fault LED will not illuminate and all other
indicators should show normal operation.

Warranty & Warning Information
17.0Warranty & Warning Information
17.1 Warning Please Read Carefully
Note to End Users: This equipment is subject to terms and conditions of sale as follows:
17.2 Note to Installers
This warning contains vital information. As the only individual in contact with system users, it is
operator’s responsibility to bring each item in this warning to the attention of the users of this
system. Failure to properly inform system end-users of the circumstances in which the system
might fail may result in over-reliance upon the system. As a result, it is imperative that you
properly inform each customer for whom you install the system of the possible forms of failure.
17.3 System Failures
This system has been carefully designed to be as effective as possible. There are
circumstances, such as fire or other types of emergencies where it may not provide protection.
Alarm systems of any type may be compromised deliberately or may fail to operate as
expected for a variety of reasons. Some reasons for system failure include:
17.3.1 Inadequate Installation
A Fire Alarm system must be installed in accordance with all the applicable codes and
standards in order to provide adequate protection. An inspection and approval of the initial
installation, or, after any changes to the system, must be conducted by the Local Authority
Having Jurisdiction. Such inspections ensure installation has been carried out properly.
17.3.2 Power Failure
Control units, smoke detectors and many other connected devices require an adequate power
supply for proper operation. If the system or any device connected to the system operates
from batteries, it is possible for the batteries to fail. Even if the batteries have not failed, they
must be fully charged, in good condition and installed correctly. If a device operates only by
AC power, any interruption, however brief, will render that device inoperative while it does not
have power. Power interruptions of any length are often accompanied by voltage fluctuations
which may damage electronic equipment such as a fire alarm system. After a power
interruption has occurred, immediately conduct a complete system test to ensure that the
system operates as intended.
17.3.3 Failure of Replaceable Batteries
Systems with wireless transmitters have been designed to provide several years of battery life
under normal conditions. The expected battery life is a function of the device environment,
usage and type. Ambient conditions such as high humidity, high or low temperatures, or large
temperature fluctuations may reduce the expected battery life. While each transmitting device
has a low battery monitor which identifies when the batteries need to be replaced, this monitor
may fail to operate as expected. Regular testing and maintenance will keep the system in
good operating condition.
17.3.4 Compromise of Radio Frequency (Wireless) Devices
Signals may not reach the receiver under all circumstances which could include metal objects
placed on or near the radio path or deliberate jamming or other inadvertent radio signal
interference.
17.3.5 System Users
A user may not be able to operate a panic or emergency switch possibly due to permanent or
temporary physical disability, inability to reach the device in time, or unfamiliarity with the
128
Warranty & Warning Information
correct operation. It is important that all system users be trained in the correct operation of the
alarm system and that they know how to respond when the system indicates an alarm.
17.3.6 Automatic Alarm Initiating Devices
Smoke detectors, heat detectors and other alarm initiating devices that are a part of this
system may not properly detect a fire condition or signal the control panel to alert occupants of
a fire condition for a number of reasons, such as: the smoke detectors or heat detector may
have been improperly installed or positioned; smoke or heat may not be able to reach the
alarm initiating device, such as when the fire is in a chimney, walls or roofs, or on the other
side of closed doors; and, smoke and heat detectors may not detect smoke or heat from fires
on another level of the residence or building.
17.3.7 Software
Most MGC products contain software. With respect to those products, MGC does not warranty
that the operation of the software will be uninterrupted or error-free or that the software will
meet any other standard of performance, or that the functions or performance of the software
will meet the user’s requirements. MGC shall not be liable for any delays, breakdowns,
interruptions, loss, destruction, alteration or other problems in the use of a product arising our
of, or caused by, the software.
Every fire is different in the amount and rate at which smoke and heat are generated. Smoke
detectors cannot sense all types of fires equally well. Smoke detectors may not provide timely
warning of fires caused by carelessness or safety hazards such as smoking in bed, violent
explosions, escaping gas, improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical
circuits, children playing with matches or arson.
Even if the smoke detector or heat detector operates as intended, there may be circumstances
when there is insufficient warning to allow all occupants to escape in time to avoid injury or
death.
17.3.8 Alarm Notification Appliances
Alarm Notification Appliances such as sirens, bells, horns, or strobes may not warn people or
waken someone sleeping if there is an intervening wall or door. If notification appliances are
located on a different level of the residence or premise, then it is less likely that the occupants
will be alerted or awakened. Audible notification appliances may be interfered with by other
noise sources such as stereos, radios, televisions, air conditioners or other appliances, or
passing traffic. Audible notification appliances, however loud, may not be heard by a hearingimpaired person.
17.3.9 Telephone Lines
If telephone lines are used to transmit alarms, they may be out of service or busy for certain
periods of time. Also, the telephone lines may be compromised by such things as criminal
tampering, local construction, storms or earthquakes.
17.3.10 Insufficient Time
There may be circumstances when the system will operate as intended, yet the occupants will
not be protected from the emergency due to their inability to respond to the warnings in a
timely manner. If the system is monitored, the response may not occur in time enough to
protect the occupants or their belongings.
17.3.11 Component Failure
Although every effort has been made to make this system as reliable as possible, the system
may fail to function as intended due to the failure of a component.
129
Warranty & Warning Information
17.3.12 Inadequate Testing
Most problems that would prevent an alarm system from operating as intended can be
discovered by regular testing and maintenance. The complete system should be tested as
required by national standards and the Local Authority Having Jurisdiction and immediately
after a fire, storm, earthquake, accident, or any kind of construction activity inside or outside
the premises. The testing should include all sensing devices, keypads, consoles, alarm
indicating devices and any other operational devices that are part of the system.
17.3.13 Security and Insurance
Regardless of its capabilities, an alarm system is not a substitute for property or life insurance.
An alarm system also is not a substitute for property owners, renters, or other occupants to act
prudently to prevent or minimize the harmful effects of an emergency situation.
IMPORTANT NOTE: End-users of the system must take care to ensure that the system,
batteries, telephone lines, etc. are tested and examined on a regular basis to ensure the
minimization of system failure.
17.4 Limited Warranty
Mircom Technologies Ltd., MGC Systems Corp. and MGC System International Ltd. together
with their subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, MGC) warrants the original purchaser that for
a period of three years from the date of shipment, proprietary manufactured product shall be

ninety (90) days, whichever is longer. The original owner must promptly notify MGC in writing
that there is defect in material or workmanship, such written notice to be received in all events
prior to expiration of the warranty period.
17.4.1 International Warranty
The warranty for international customers is the same as for any customer within Canada and
the United States, MGC shall not be responsible for any customs fees, taxes, or VAT that may
be due.
