2.4 Planning Your Installation

Note: This system should be installed and serviced by qualified fire alarm installation professionals.

As a minimum, the following points should be considered to ensure that the installation will be successful and proceed without delay.

•Consult with your local AHJ to ensure that the overall system will meet all requirements. Have your plans reviewed and approved as required.

•Review the electrical specifications, mounting and wiring instructions in this manual and in the manuals of all connected modules and devices.

•Using the chart in this manual, calculate the standby battery size that will meet the standby time required.

Include all components that will draw current from the standby battery when the panel is in the ‘standby’ mode.

•Determine the location of the control panel, all initiating and indicating devices and remote modules and mark them on your system layout plan. An indicating device must be located in close proximity to the control panel.

•Using the charts in this manual, determine the wire gauge and wire run distances for the connected components. (initiating devices, indicating devices and ‘secur-bus’ connected components.)

•Review the programming section of this manual and determine the operating characteristics required of the initiating zones, indicating zones and common panel features.

*Current noted assumes ONE initiating zone is in alarm. The “Max. Alarm Current” assumes all zones are in alarm.

**Values shown are for all relays set for activation on ‘Alarm’. Each relay set for activation on ‘trouble’ is normally energized and on ‘AC fail’ will draw 0 mA.

2.7 Standby Battery calculation chart

All components that draw current from the panel while it is in the ‘standby’ mode (AC OFF) must be considered for the standby battery calculation. All components that draw current while in the ‘Alarm’ mode must be considered for the alarm battery calculation.

1. The control panel will always draw the currents as shown in the chart.

2. Typically the alarm current is calculated assuming only one initiating zone is in alarm. If it is required that more than one zone be considered, add 60 mA per zone in the Alarm column. Consult the smoke detector manufacture’s installation sheet to determine the standby current of these devices. Write that number in the ‘current per device’ column then multiply that number by the number of devices on the zone. Repeat for each zone.

3. Consult the Notification Appliance installation sheet to determine the current draw for each device connected to the NAC. For each NAC, calculate the total current in alarm and put that number (mA) in the

‘Alarm’ column.

Note: each NAC can supply 1.5 Amps max.

4. For each added module in the system, multiply the number of modules times the module ‘standby’ and

‘alarm’ currents and write those totals in the ‘standby’ and ‘alarm’ columns.

5. Add up all the current drawn from the AUX+ output in the standby and alarm mode and put those totals in the ‘standby’ and ‘alarm’ columns.

6. Add up all the currents in the ‘standby’ column and the ‘Alarm’ column.

7. Convert the ‘standby’ and ‘alarm’ currents from mA to Amps. (divide mA by 1000)

8. Write in the ‘standby’ time required. (24 or 60 Hr.)

9. Multiply the ‘standby’ Amps times the ‘standby’ time to get the ‘standby’ Amp-Hr. required.

10.Write in the ‘alarm’ time required in hours. (5 min. =.08 Hr.; 30 min. =0.5 Hr.)

11. Multiply the ‘alarm’ Amps times the ‘alarm’ time to get the ‘alarm’ Amp-Hr required.

12.Add the ‘standby’ Amp-Hr. to the ‘alarm’ Amp-Hr. for the total Amp-Hr. required.

13.Multiply the total Amp-Hr. times 1.20 for the minimum Amp-Hr. battery required to support the system for the selected ‘standby time and the selected ‘alarm’ time.

FA-265 Installation and Operator’s Manual

To calculate the wire run distance for any gauge wire and any maximum current value, use the following formula:

Rmax =

1.25

Imax

Amps ohms

Distance =

Rmax × 1,000

2(wire resistance in ohms per 1,000 feet) feet

Secur-bus Capacitance

Maximum wire capacitance for proper operation of the Secur-bus is 90 nF (nanofarad). Typical wire capacitance for 22 awg quad cable is 20 nF per 1,000 feet. Thus, for 22 awg quad cable, the maximum wire run distance is ((90/20)× 1,000) = 4,500 feet. Other types of wire have different capacitance values. Consult the wire manufacturer’s data sheets for typical capacitance values.

Note: Shielded wire has a much higher capacitance value and distances are severely reduced.

The following devices may be connected to the Secur-bus. All devices are supervised. See the section Reset

Section Programming on page 29 for information on adding and deleting devices on the Secur-bus.

5.0 Panel Operation

5.1 Operating Sequences

This section describes how the panel functions under various conditions. The choices you make in panel

programming will also affect how the panel operates. Please see “6.0 Programming the FA-265 System” on page 24 for information on how to program the panel, and descriptions of each of the programming options.

5.2 General Zone Fire Alarms

Zone alarms have priority over all other annunciation. When an alarm occurs, the following happens:

•The corresponding zone alarm LED begins flashing, the common alarm LED turns on steady, and the alarm relay turns on.

•If a trouble was present on that zone then the zone trouble LED turns off. If the trouble buzzer is audible then it also turns off.

•The NACs sound in a steady or temporal pattern, depending on the option selected (see “Steady” on page 27).

•If enabled, the silence inhibit timer begins counting down (see “Silence Inhibit and Walk Test Programming

- Section 3 (‘Battery’ LED on steady)” on page 28). If the silence inhibit timer is enabled, the panel cannot be

silenced for 60 seconds following the first fire alarm. Subsequent fire alarms do not restart or extend this timer. While the signal silence inhibit timer is counting down, if the Silence Alarm button is pressed the panel will sound a 1 second ‘error tone’ on the common trouble buzzer.

•The NACs remain on until silenced with the Silence Alarm button, or if the automatic alarm silence is

enabled, until the thirty minute bell timer runs out (see “NAC Auto-silence and Strobe Programming - Section

2 (‘NAC2’ LED on steady)” on page 27). If the automatic silence timer is enabled, the panel will automatically

silence the NACs 30 minutes after the last fire alarm. Each zone alarm will restart the timer, giving a full 30 minutes after the last alarm before the NACs are silenced.

• Once the NACs are silenced the signals silenced LED turns on and any flashing zone alarm LEDs turn on steady. The common trouble LED and trouble relay also turn on and, if the NACs have been silenced

automatically, the buzzer will sound at a rate of ½ second ON/OFF.

Note: A manual signal silence will not initiate the trouble buzzer. Only the common trouble LED and signals silenced LED are turned on.

•Any additional zone alarms that occur while the panel is in alarm will reset the auto alarm silence timer and turn on the NACs, but the panel will not restart the 60 second silence inhibit timer.

•The zone alarm LEDs, common alarm LED and alarm relay will remain on steady until a system reset is performed.

5.3 Waterflow Alarms

If the Waterflow Silence option is turned off (see “Waterflow Programming - Section 4 (‘Ground Fault’ LED on steady)” on page 28), when a waterflow zone (type 03) initiates an alarm the NACs cannot be silenced until all

waterflow zones are returned to normal. If all waterflow zones return to normal after the 30 minute automatic signal silence timer has expired, then the panel will silence the NACs.

If the Waterflow Silence option is turned on, then an alarm on a waterflow zone is treated like any other fire alarm.

18

FA-265 Installation and Operator’s Manual

5.4 Supervisory Zone Alarms

When an alarm occurs on a supervisory zone (type 04), the corresponding zone supervisory LED begins flashing. The common supervisory LED and supervisory relay (supervisory relay is optional) turn on steady, and the buzzer turns on steady. If there was a trouble on that zone, the zone trouble LED turns off. The buzzer remains on until the trouble silence button is pressed. Once the buzzer is silenced any flashing zone supervisory LEDs turn on steady. The zone supervisory LEDs, common supervisory LED and supervisory relay remain on steady until a system reset is performed.

Subsequent Fire Supervisory

After silencing a fire supervisory, a subsequent fire supervisory from another zone will resound the trouble/ supervisory buzzer and the new zone supervisory LED flashes until the Silence Trouble button is pressed.

Supervisory / Trouble Priority

If a supervisory zone has a trouble and it goes into alarm, the zone trouble LED is extinguished until that zone is restored and the panel has been reset. The common trouble LED will remain on steady until all supervisory alarms have been restored and the panel reset. All other ‘common’ trouble indicators will operate normally.

Supervisory / Fire Alarm Priority

The supervisory zone LED, the common supervisory LED and the buzzer (in the steady supervisory mode) function normally whether there is a fire alarm present or not.

5.5 Trouble Operation

When a trouble occurs, if there is a corresponding trouble LED it turns on steady. The common trouble LED and the trouble relay also turn on. If no alarm is present on the system, the buzzer will sound at a rate of ½ second ON/OFF. The buzzer and trouble LEDs will remain on until the trouble is restored. If the Silence

Trouble button is pressed, the buzzer turns off. Subsequent troubles will resound the trouble buzzer.

Note: If there is no trouble present in the system then pressing the Silence Trouble button will result in a

1 second error tone.

Please see the following table for a list of system faults that will initiate a trouble.

5.6 System Reset Operation

To reset the system, press the ‘Reset System’ button. The panel will remove all power from the zones and the switched auxiliary relay for 10 seconds. During this 10 second period, the buzzer will beep twice every 2 seconds.

The panel can only be reset if:

•the NACs have been silenced

•the supervisory buzzer has been silenced and all waterflow zones are restored (only applies if the Silence

Waterflow option is turned off - see “Waterflow Programming - Section 4 (‘Ground Fault’ LED on steady)” on page 28).

If the panel is not in a condition to be reset, when the ‘Reset System’ button is pressed the panel will sound a

1 second error tone on the buzzer.

After the 10 second reset period, the panel will turn off the zone LED for any zones that have been restored. If one or more zones is still in alarm after the reset period, the panel will activate the NACs as programmed. If there are no alarms but one or more Supervisory zones is still ‘off-normal’ after the reset period, the panel will sound the trouble buzzer in the Supervisory mode. If there are no alarms or supervisory conditions but a trouble is present in the panel after the reset period, the panel will sound the trouble buzzer. After the reset period, LEDs for any alarms, supervisory off-normal or trouble conditions will be on.

5.7 Lamp Test

The lamp test will check all of the panel and annunciator LEDs. To do a lamp test, press and hold the Lamp

Test button. All the LEDs will flash.

A lamp test will only work if the NACs are not active and the supervisory buzzer is not active. If a lamp test is unsuccessful the buzzer will sound a 1 second error tone. If any trouble or zone has a state change during lamp test, the lamp test will be cancelled and the panel will return to normal operation.

21

FA-265 Installation and Operator’s Manual

5.8 Walk Test (Installer function only)

To do a walk test, all zone alarms, troubles and relays must be in their normal state. You can program the walk test to be either audible or silent (see “Audible Walk Test” on page 28).

1. To walk test the panel press the Walk Test button. The common trouble LED flashes and the buzzer sounds one short beep. The panel will be in walk test mode for one hour, or until you press the Walk Test button again.

FA-265 Installation and Operator’s Manual

6.0 Programming the FA-265 System

6.1 How to Program the FA-265

You can program the panel using the controls and indicator LEDs. There are no DIP switches to set for programming.

Once programmed, the operating modes selected are maintained in non-volatile memory that will retain the programmed information even if all power is removed from the panel.

Entering the Programming mode

Note: All zone alarms must be reset prior to entering the programming mode. While the panel is in programming mode, the annunciators will show a trouble condition.

1. Remove the lower front cover and locate the ‘Walk Test Switch’ behind the control panel PCB, as shown below.

Figure 17: Locating the Walk Test Switch

2. Press and hold the Walk Test Switch for two seconds. The common trouble buzzer and common trouble

LED turn on and pulse ½ second on/off.

3. Press any button. The trouble buzzer is silent, and the zone 1 alarm LED turns on steady. The common trouble LED continues to flash.

4. The panel is now ready to program.

24

FA-265 Installation and Operator’s Manual

Programming the Panel

The control panel has six different programming sections, which are shown in the table below. The Panel

Status LEDs indicate which programming section you are currently in.

When you first enter programming mode, the panel will be at zone programming (section 0). Each programming section has one or more programming sub-sections (e.g. section 0 has sub-sections for zones 1 through 5). Use the Silence Trouble and Silence Alarm buttons to enter your programming choices:

1. Each sub-section in a section will have 2 or more programming settings, indicated by the panel Zone

Supervisory and Zone Trouble LEDs. To scroll through the programming settings, press the Silence Alarm

button. Please see “6.2 Programming Section Descriptions” on page 26 for descriptions of each section

and settings, and the LED indications for each setting.

2. When the LEDs show the setting you want for a sub-section, move to the next programming sub-section by pressing the Silence Trouble button. The panel will save the indicated settings when you exit the programming mode or go to the next programming section.

3. When you have programmed all the sub-sections in a section, the panel will move to the next programming section when you press the Silence Trouble button.

Note: Pressing Silence Trouble will advance forward through each programming sub-section, and each section.

Example: in the Zone 1 programming sub-section, pressing Silence Alarm will scroll through each zone type setting (null zone, instant zone, auto-verify zone, etc.). When the panel shows the zone type you want for zone 1, press Silence Trouble to move on to Zone 2 programming.

Exiting the Programming Mode

When you come to the end of all the programming sections, press Silence Trouble to exit the programming mode.

To exit programming mode at any other point in the panel programming, press and hold the Walk Test switch for two seconds.

Note: If 5 minutes elapse without any button presses, the panel will automatically exit the programming mode. During the final 60 seconds before the exit, the panel will sound a warning tone on the buzzer. Press any button to cancel the auto-exit and resume programming.

After you exit the programming mode, the panel performs a system reset for 10 seconds, during which the buzzer sounds double beeps. When the beeping stops the panel returns to normal operating mode and all programming choices are stored in memory.

25

FA-265 Installation and Operator’s Manual

6.2 Programming Section Descriptions

Zone Programming (Section 0)

In this zone programming section, the panel uses the zone alarm, supervisory, and trouble LEDs to indicate the programming as follows:

6.3 Viewing the Event Buffer

Zone type 00 – Null zone (Not used)

The zone is not used. The zone is not supervised, alarms and troubles are ignored. The end-of-line resistor is not required.

Zone type 01 – Instant alarm for 2-wire smoke detectors and contact devices

Zone type 01 does not differentiate between 2-wire smoke detectors, contact devices, or 4-wire smoke detectors. When a 2-wire smoke detector, 4 –wire smoke detector or contact device goes into alarm:

The panel goes into alarm without any delay. If an instant zone goes into alarm, any auto-verify sequence in progress on another zone will be immediately cancelled and both zones will indicate an alarm condition.

Zone type 03 – Waterflow zone

This zone type is intended for waterflow alarm initiating contact devices only.

Do not mix other alarm initiating devices on this zone. For Waterflow delay, use actuating devices with a built-in delay of 30 seconds or more. The overall maximum waterflow alarm initiation delay allowed is 90 seconds. (NFPA A-5-

6.2 – 1996 edition) When the contact on a Waterflow alarm initialing device is activated the control panel will go into alarm instantly.

Zone type 04 – Supervisory zone

When the contact on a Supervisory device is initiated:

1. The control panel will immediately indicate the Supervisory “off-normal” condition.

2. The zone supervisory LED (yellow) will flash, the common

‘supervisory’ LED will come on steady and the common trouble buzzer will sound steadily. Pressing the ‘trouble silence’ switch will silence the buzzer and the zone supervisory LED will stop flashing and turn on steadily.

3. Fire supervisory zones are latching and can only be restored when the initiating device is restored and a system reset is performed.

NAC Temporal/Steady Programming - Section 1 (‘NAC1’ LED on steady)

You can individually program both NAC1 and NAC2 to sound in either a temporal or steady pattern. By default, both NAC outputs are programmed as steady.

Temporal

The NAC1 will sound the Temporal/ANSI Fire Pattern: 0.5 seconds ON,

0.5 seconds OFF, 0.5 seconds ON, 0.5 seconds OFF, 0.5 seconds ON,

1.5 seconds OFF, repeat.

The NAC2 will sound the Temporal/ANSI Fire Pattern: 0.5 seconds ON,

0.5 seconds OFF, 0.5 seconds ON, 0.5 seconds OFF, 0.5 seconds ON,

1.5 seconds OFF, repeat.

26

FA-265 Installation and Operator’s Manual

Steady

The NAC1 will sound continuously.

The NAC2 will sound continuously.

NAC Auto-silence and Strobe Programming - Section 2 (‘NAC2’ LED on steady)

Automatic Signal Silence

If Automatic Signal Silence is enabled, 30 minutes after the last fire alarm on the system, the panel restores the NACs to normal (alarms are silenced).

If another alarm occurs after the NACs are silenced, the panel will restart the timer for another 30 minute period.

If Automatic Signal Silence is disabled, the panel will not silence the

NACs automatically.

NAC2 Strobe

If this option is enabled, on alarm, NAC2 turns on steady and does not turn off on automatic signal silence, or when the Silence Alarm button is pressed. When NAC2 is set to this mode, it can only be turned off when all zone fire alarms are restored, and the system is reset. Only NAC2 can be set to this mode.

If this option is disabled, the panel will restore NAC2 to normal following an automatic signal silence (see Automatic Signal Silence, above), or following a press of the ‘Silence Alarm’ button.

27

FA-265 Installation and Operator’s Manual

Silence Inhibit and Walk Test Programming - Section 3 (‘Battery’ LED on steady)

Signal Silence Inhibit Timer

If the Signal Silence Inhibit Timer is enabled, when the first alarm is activated, the panel will begin a 60 second countdown. During this 60 seconds, users will not be able to turn off the NACs by pressing the

Silence Alarm button. The timer is started on the first alarm only and is not restarted on subsequent alarms.

If the Signal Silence Inhibit Timer is disabled, users will be able to turn off the NACs at any time, by pressing the Silence Alarm button.

If NAC2 is set as a strobe, users will never be able to turn off NAC2 using the

Silence Alarm button. See “Silence Inhibit and Walk Test Programming -

Section 3 (‘Battery’ LED on steady)” on page 28.

Audible Walk Test

You can set the One Man Walk Test to be either audible or silent. If the

One Man Walk Test is set for audible, then the following will occur:

•On a fire or Supervisory alarm/restoral the bells will pulse ONCE

•On a zone or system trouble/restoral, except ground fault, the bells will pulse TWICE

•On any ground fault/restoral the bells will pulse THREE times.

If the One Man Walk Test is set for silent, the bells will not sound during the walk test.

Waterflow Programming - Section 4 (‘Ground Fault’ LED on steady)

Silence Waterflow Alarms

If the Silence Waterflow Alarms option is turned on, Waterflow zones can be silenced whether the zones are physically restored or not.

If the Silence Waterflow Alarms option is turned off, Waterflow zones cannot be silenced until they are physically restored. This applies to both automatic signal silence, and the Silence Alarm button. If there is a trouble on a Waterflow zone following the alarm and alarm restore, the zone can be silenced.

FA-265 Installation and Operator’s Manual

Warranty & Warning Information

Warning Please Read Carefully

Note to End Users: This equipment is subject to terms and conditions of sale as follows:

Note to Installers

This warning contains vital information. As the only individual in contact with system users, it is your responsibility to bring each item in this warning to the attention of the users of this system. Failure to properly inform system endusers 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.

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:

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.

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.

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.

•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.

•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 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.

•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

41

FA-265 Installation and Operator’s Manual 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.

Software

Most Mircom products contain software. With respect to those products, Mircom 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. Mircom 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.

•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.

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.

•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.

•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.

•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.

•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.
