INTRODUCTION
Zerio Plus has been designed to be capable of handling 240 devices in 100 zones. Typical installations would
include small offices, private houses, HMO’s, guest houses and small hotels.
This manual contains information to enable an engineer to install, service and operate the Zerio Plus control panel
and the range of Zerio Plus devices. This product should be installed, commissioned and maintained by qualified
service personnel in accordance with codes of practice, statutory requirements and IEE regulations for electrical
equipment in buildings.
The system has been designed to allow very simple set up, with a user friendly menu structure and full-text
capability. There is no need to connect devices with a programming lead, as configuration is achieved by radio.
Text locations can be entered on the panel itself or by connecting a standard USB keyboard to the panel.
Devices for the system are visually the same as the standard Millennium and Zerio devices. These devices are not
compatible with the Millennium or Zerio range of fire alarm equipment. A list of devices available for use with this
system can be found on the back page.
Prior to installation, the building where the system is to be installed must be surveyed to ensure that each device
to be fitted has a good radio communication path to the control or booster panel. This is done with an
F/EDA-Z5000 survey kit. When installing devices, they must be positioned as per the survey. Installing a device
even a few inches from the surveyed position can affect the signal strength significantly, especially if any
metalwork is contained in the ceiling above the new position (e.g. air-conditioning ducting).
IMPORTANT
Failure to perform an accurate survey will result in the system being unlikely to function correctly.
These errors can be costly to correct.
Points to remember:
1. Position the panel where it is to be installed
2. Ensure devices are surveyed for their exact positions touching the ceiling or wall. A few inches either side may
affect the signal strengths substantially.
3. In order to have an accurate survey the batteries in the survey detector should be changed at least once a year

2.0 - INSTALLATION
The electronic components within the panel are vulnerable to electrostatic discharges. It is advisable to wear a
wrist strap designed to prevent the build-up of static charges within the body before handing any
electronic components. Do not remove or unplug any components while the panel is powered up.
Mounting
The panel should be mounted on a wall in a suitable position as recommended by BS5839 Part 1. If fitted, the
antenna should be away from any solid objects, especially electronic equipment and metal structures. The wall
should be even, clean and dry and not prone to vibration. Should the wall not be level, the panel should be
mounted on a wooden board. The temperature should be in the range of -5oC to +35oC and the humidity should
not exceed 95%. Mount the panel using 3 x No. 10 screws of a suitable
length, and ensure washers (supplied) are used to meet the IP30 rating.
The smaller washer (25mm diameter) is to be used for the mounting
hole next to the PSU.
Cabling
A 230V AC 50Hz supply capable of providing 500mA with a minimum
diameter of 7mm and a maximum diameter of 10.5mm should be
derived from a separate fused spur. This spur should not incorporate a
switch and should be labelled ‘Fire Alarm Equipment – Do Not Switch
Off ’. A cable conforming to BS5839, with a core cable size no greater
than 2.5mm2 should be used. Always ensure that the mains supply is
completely isolated before working on any mains rated components.
Cables should only enter the panel housing through the knockouts provided. Do not remove more knockouts than
is needed to terminate the cables, as additional apertures in the panel will compromise the ingress protection
requirements of EN54-2/4. A nylon M20 IP66 cable gland should be used. The cable should be connected to the
terminal block as labelled from above with the Live (brown) connected to the top terminal, the Earth (green/yellow) to the middle and the Neutral (blue) to the bottom. Care should be taken to ensure no loose strands protrude
from the terminal block and that the wire insulation is trimmed to the correct length so that no exposed wire is left
visible. Any earth cables should not be removed.
Once the connection has been made, the panel fuse (3.15A ceramic T type) should be removed from the panel by
pulling on the fuse holder. The fused spur can then be energised. To power up the panel, insert the fuse holder
with the correct value of fuse fitted. As there is a high inrush current there is likely to be a spark produced. This
is normal. Mains power should always be applied prior to connecting the standby battery. Once the mains
supply has been applied, the green LED on the bottom edge of the processor board should begin to flash once a
second. The system normal screen will be displayed.
Connections to the panel inputs should be made using fireproof 2 core cable with a core diameter of 1.0mm2.
A nylon M20 IP66 cable gland should be used. The Fire Routing & Sounder circuits should be connected using a
fireproof 2 core cable conforming to BS5839. A suitable core diameter should be used depending on the loading of
the circuit. The Panel has been type approved to IP rating IP30.

Battery
In order to meet EN54 Part 4, a Yuasa NP7-12 lead acid battery
should be fitted. This will give a 72 hour standby, assuming no
external equipment (eg wired antennas) has been added. If
only 24 hours standby is required and no external equipment
has been fitted then a 12V 2.8Ahr battery could be fitted. Connect the battery using the supplied terminal connections. The
red wire is +12V and the black wire is 0V. Do not confuse the
colour of the terminal connectors. Once connected, the Reset
button on the keypad can be pressed. If ‘Battery Fault’ appears;
check the connections and polarity. If the battery is connected
incorrectly it is likely that the fuse will blow. The wiring should be
corrected and the fuse replaced.
The PSU will only charge
batteries measuring 10.5V and above. This is a requirement of EN54-4 to cut off
charging at a point recommended by the battery manufacturer.
Batteries measuring less than 10.5V are
regarded by the system as faulty and will not be charged. A ‘Battery Fault’ will be displayed on screen. If the battery
voltage is below 10.5V it will need to be removed from the panel to be charged and reconditioned, or replaced.
The battery voltage can be viewed on the PSU Info section of the 6.5 – Panel Info menu.
When replacing the battery always do so with a product of equal specification. Always dispose of batteries responsibly. Never dispose of batteries in general waste. If unsure contact your local authority for guidance.
Antenna (if fitted)
The standard helical stub antenna supplied with the panel
should be fitted to the antenna
bracket assembly before it is
mounted into the panel. Fit the
antenna onto the SMA connector as shown below. This
should be screwed hand tight.
Over tightening will cause the
antenna to break. The supplied
antenna retaining washer should
then be placed over the top of
the antenna. The antenna and
bracket assembly should then
be inserted through the antenna
aperture and mounted using the supplied M3 screw and an M3 serrated locking washer. Once mounted, the antenna retaining washer prevents the stub antenna being unscrewed from outside the panel. Connect the antenna
assembly to the main processor board using the SMA connector. If a high gain remote antenna is being used, the
stub antenna and the antenna bracket assembly should be removed. The new antenna should be fitted using a
50Ω SMA connector, suitable for use with RG58 c/u coaxial cable, to the processor board. Cable runs should conform to the relevant sections of BS5839 and EN54. When making off the cable, ensure that no stray shielding wires
are shorting. Do not use non-radio connectors as they will reduce the performance of the panel.

PCB Layout
Monitored Inputs
The panel features two monitored inputs that can be programmed either as latching or non-latching. It is important to note that before using these inputs they must be enabled by programming them in the panel options
menu. If the inputs are enabled then 4K7Ω end of line resistors must be fitted at the termination. Applying a 470Ω
resistor across the inputs will produce a ‘Fire’ message. The inputs are labelled ‘INPUTS’ and ‘No1’ and ‘No2’. These
inputs can be assigned a zone and text location, and then cause and effects can be programmed for them. See
6.15 – Input Options for further information.
RS-485 Connections
The RS485 connectors are used for wiring hardware to the panel such as extra antennas or a secondary display. A
suitable data cable should be used with 2 sets of twisted pairs. Cat 5/5e/6 can be used but is not fire rated. Wired
antennas and displays have two RS485 connectors, making it possible to make a chain of up to 4 units. On the last
unit in any chain, a 100R resistor should be fitted across the D- and D+ terminals of the unused RS485 connection.
If one of the control/booster panel RS485 ports is unused then a 100R should be fitted between D- and D+. If none
of the panel RS485 ports are used then there is no need to fit the 100R resistor. The RS485 ports are capable of supplying 500mA at 15V.
The use of this facility is not permitted for an EN54-2 compliant system.

Panel Relays
The panel is equipped with four programmable relays, each capable of supplying 500mA. The total current draw
across all four relays must not exceed 1A. The default relay types are:
Relay 1: Fire Routing Relay - This activates on an alarm condition. It switches 12V onto the output and is monitored for short and open circuit, with a 4K7Ω EOL. The circuit should be connected between the C and the NO
terminals. The fuse should be fitted and the links put in the lower position.
Relay 2: Fault Failsafe Relay - This energises on power-up and de-energises in fault. Consequently the normally
open and normally closed terminals are reversed. The fuse should be removed and the links fitted in the upper
position as shown on the PCB layout diagram.
Relays 3 & 4: Sounder Circuits - These are each capable of supplying 500mA at 12V. Both the sounder circuit fuses
should be fitted in the fuse holders and the links fitted in the left or lower positions as shown on the PCB layout
diagram. The circuit should be connected between the S+ and the S- terminals. A 4K7Ω end of line resistor should
be fitted to monitor the circuit.
The relays can be configured as sounder circuits, monitored outputs or volt free clean contact relays. The relay type
can be changed in 6.8 – User Options and by positioning the jumper links and fuses as detailed below. When relays
are configured as fire routing or as sounder circuits, the associated terminal pin (V+) must not be used. Only the
default relay types have been type approved.

Display Cable
A ribbon cable connects the two panel boards together. It should be connected to the system link/bus
connections on the boards. Do not remove or connect the ribbon cable while the panel is powered up, as damage
can occur to the processor board.
Buzzer Link
The buzzer can be disabled by removing the buzzer link (see page 6 – PCB Layout). Note that when the buzzer is
disabled, the system will not comply with EN54.
Memory Card
The memory card stores a complete set of the system settings including device/zone text and options. The
memory card should be fitted at all times unless instructed by the panel (i.e. when adding a repeater panel).
USB Socket
The USB socket can be used for connecting a keyboard to program device text. It is also used to plug in a memory
stick to download the event log, device info and the verify table so a hardcopy can be retained for records.

3.0 - USER OPERATION
4.1 - System Normal
In normal operation the screen will show either the date and time, or
the supplier/service contact details. The unit can also be configured to
alternate between the two. If configured this way, the display will change
every 4 seconds. See 6.4 – Programming Agent Details. Also a single green
‘Supply’ LED will be illuminated.
4.2 - Fault Conditions
If a fault occurs, the internal buzzer will sound and a message will be
displayed. The first line details the current fault number, the zone and the
type of fault. The second line details the device type and the device
number. The third and fourth lines display the device location text (if
programmed). The description has a maximum length of 40 characters
across 2 lines. Appropriate action should be taken to remedy the fault as
this may affect the operation of the fire alarm system. If in doubt, the
system maintenance company should be contacted. If more than one
fault exists on the system they will scroll round every 5 seconds. Pressing
the or cursor key will display the next or previous fault.
4.3 - Silence Buzzer
If the panel buzzer is sounding following a fault or alarm, it can be
silenced with the Silence Buzzer key. Once the Silence Buzzer button has
been pressed the panel assumes that the fault has been acknowledged
and does not re-sound the buzzer, unless a new fault occurs. The LED on
the device will continue to flash until the fault is reset – see below.
4.4 - Reset a Fault
A fault will be displayed on the panel until the system is reset, even if the
fault condition has been rectified. Assuming the fault has been
rectified; pressing Reset on the panel and entering an access code using
the navigation keys will reset the panel and the devices on which the fault
has occurred. The system normal screen will then be displayed. If the fault
is still present or re-occurs, it will be re-displayed. Where there are
multiple faults, all will be reset at the same time. It is not necessary to
silence a fault before resetting it. The particular device or devices in fault
will also flash a green LED and beep. The system can be silenced and reset
without an access code by turning off ‘Code Protect’; see 6.9 – System
Options.
4.5 - Alarm Conditions
In a fire condition, a screen similar to this will be displayed. The fire LEDs
will flash and the zones in alarm LED(s) will be illuminated. Assuming the
system is programmed to do so, the system sounders will be activated
and the routing active LED will illuminate. The first line of the display
shows the event number and the zone number. The second line details
the device type and its number. If the device location has been
programmed into the panel, it will be displayed on the third and fourth
lines. Scroll through multiple alarms using the and keys.

4.6 - Silence the Alarm
When it is certain that it is safe to return to the building the Silence Alarm button should be pressed. The user will
then be prompted to enter a valid user access code using the navigation keys. Up to 30 seconds should then be
allowed for all sounders to silence. If a device is still in an alarm condition the sounders will not sound again unless
another device goes into alarm. If an alarm is left unsilenced, the sounders will turn off automatically after 30 minutes. The system can be silenced and reset without an access code by turning off ‘Code Protect’; see 6.9 – System
Options.
4.7 - Re-sound the Sounders
There may be times when the sounders have been mistakenly silenced – for example if the alarm was genuine but
someone pressed silence. The Re-Sound Alarm button followed by a valid access code will activate the sounders
again.
4.8 - Reset the Alarm
Assuming the reason for the alarm condition has been investigated; pressing Reset after silencing the alarm will
return the system to its normal operation screen and reset the devices that prompted the alarm. The user will be
prompted to enter a valid access code using the navigation keys. The system can be silenced and reset without a
code by turning off ‘Code Protect’; see 6.9 – System Options.
If a device has remained in alarm (i.e. the glass has not been replaced in a callpoint or a smoke detector detects
smoke is still inside the unit) after silencing the alarm and pressing Reset, the panel will redisplay the alarm and the
sounders will sound again.
4.9 - Access Levels
The panel is protected from misuse by means of four access levels. The access levels are as follows:
Level 1 Untrained user

6.7 - Set up a New System (HMO) – commissioning users
1.Main Menu>>1.Setup>>4.System Setup>>2.New Setup>>2.HMO System
The HMO setup reduces disruption to residents in other flats by false
alarm. Note that the HMO setup is not EN54 approved. Upon activation
within a flat, an alert tone will be sounded in that flat. Residents can have
the ability of silencing these alarms using the Silence Buttons (EDAT5100) instead of visiting the main control panel. Should those sounders
not be silenced within a specified time the panel will go into full evacuate, where upon the silence buttons will no longer silence the alarm.
The panel should only be configured as an HMO system if the dwellings
are to be equipped with silence buttons (EDA-T5100). Using the HMO
option, a dwelling without a silence button will be unable to silence an
alert, causing the system to evacuate the building after the time out
period has elapsed. HMO installations not equipped with silence buttons
should be configured using the standard setup option (see page 16).
Select HMO System and press Enter to start. The panel will ask if you
want it to enter test mode. Select using the and keys and press
Enter. The panel will test the radio channel, press Enter. When the screen
displays ‘Channel OK’ press Enter. Now you will be asked to designate
each zone as either a common zone or a dwelling zone. The zone
designation will affect how the system reacts to an alarm within the
zone. The zone designation can be changed later in the HMO Zones
menu. Once completed the following settings for the system need to be
entered. These can be changed later in the HMO Options menu.

Rate of Rise
The device will go into alarm when it senses a rapid increase in temperature. The user can choose
from 3 levels of sensitivity.
A1S
As specified by EN54 part 5, A1S detectors are intended for use in applications where the
ambient temperature is typically around 25oC and not expected to exceed 50oC. A1S detectors
will not respond below their minimum static response temperature of 54oC. A1S is the default
setting.
A1R
As specified by EN54 part 5, an A1R detector is a rate of rise detector with a fixed upper limit of
57oC, at which the device will go into alarm if the rate of rise has been too slow to trigger the alarm
earlier.

14.0 – DELAYS
It is possible to set two delays for each device or input - see 6.32 – Edit Device Options. A combined delay period of
up to 600 seconds can be applied for delay1 and delay2 (e.g. 300 seconds each).
The system will ignore any programmed delays until they are activated at Access Level 2. To turn delays on or off,
the function key may be used, which will require an access code to be entered. Alternatively delays can be
activated with a panel input. Panel input activation must be restricted by, for example, using a keyswitch. This
function must be restricted for use by the designated person authorised to operate the panel. When turned on, the
‘Delays Active’ LED will illuminate.
At least 1 callpoint must be on the system so that a delay can be overridden. It is not possible to set a delay for a
callpoint.

15.0 – COMMON PROBLEMS & FAQ’S
How do I change the battery in a device?
Remove the device from its base plate. Unscrew and remove the rear casing from the device. Pull out the existing
battery, paying attention to where the connecting pins are. Line up the new battery with the connecting pins and
push into place. Screw the rear casing back on and perform a battery reset; see 12.0 – Battery Stats Reset. Return
the device to its base plate.
How do I program a device?
See 6.29 – Adding a device and 6.34 – Reprogram device.
How do I add a booster panel to a system?
See 6.23 – Adding a repeater/booster panel. Once all booster panels have been added, devices will need to be
assigned to the panel/antenna with the strongest signal; see 6.20 – Device Assignment.
I have a device with low battery – which replacement battery do I need?
See the back cover of this manual for a list of devices and the batteries they require. All new Zerio Plus devices use
the Q690 battery. Some older Zerio Plus devices use the Q670 battery, and are not compatible with the Q690
batteries.
How do I disable the sounders?
See 8.0 – Test Mode or select disable sounders in the 7.0 – Disable/Enable menu.
What is a removal fault?
This fault is to alert the user to any tampering with devices on the system, activating when a device has been
removed from its base. If a removal fault has been generated when the device has not been removed; check the
base screws are not secured too tight, as this can warp the base and cause a removal fault.
What is a verify fault?
Devices will transmit a verify message (containing device status information) to the main panel every 60 seconds. If
these transmissions are not received from the device within the verify period (default is 390 seconds), then a ‘verify
fault’ is generated. The device number, zone and text location will be displayed on the screen. Check the RSSI and
max count in the verify table.
What is a comms fault?
A comms fault is generated when the control panel has lost communication with another panel on the system. The
panel number and text location will be displayed on the screen. To check the signal strength between panels, see
10.5 – Panel Table.
Why aren’t my delays working?
Check the ‘delays active’ LED is illuminated. Any programmed delays need to be enabled. The Function key or a
keyswitch can be used as a delay toggle to turn delays on or off. See 13.0 – Delays for further information.

16.0 – MAINTENANCE
The Zerio Plus system should be maintained in accordance with the regulations and codes appropriate to the
country of installation. This schedule is based on BS5839 codes of practice.
Daily Actions
The user should check that the panel indicates normal operation. If any faults exist, they should be recorded and
the responsible person or maintenance company should be notified.
Weekly Actions
The user should put at least one callpoint or detector in to alarm, checking that the correct device/zone is
indicated on the panel and that the programmed sounders activate. A different device should be tested this way
each week. A lamps test should be carried out and any inactive LEDs reported (refer to section 8.3).
Quarterly Actions
The maintenance engineer should test at least 25% of detectors and 100% of callpoints. The devices tested should
be varied so that each device will have been tested at some point in any given 12 month period. The panel battery
connections and any relay or input connections should be checked. A visual inspection of the panel should be
carried out. Check that there are no outstanding issues in the logbook to be addressed. A lamps test should be
carried out and any inactive LEDs reported.
Annual Actions
The maintenance engineer should carry out a complete walk test. The panel battery should be tested (see
information below) and replaced if necessary. A dump of the verify table and panel table should be taken and
analysed for any change to previous records. A visual inspection of the panel should be carried out. A lamps test
should be performed and any inactive LEDs reported.
Panel Battery
Yuasa NP7-12
3-5 years expected life (20oC ambient temp)
72 hour standby
The battery may vent hydrogen while being charged. This is normal. For this reason do not install
the panel in a sealed enclosure.
The panel has been type approved using the Yuasa NP7-12 battery. Only use this battery for an
EN54 approved system.

17.0 – COMPONENT REPLACEMENT
There are no user serviceable parts within the Zerio Plus panel. Only trained service engineers should carry out the
repairs listed below. Contact EDA Technical for further information.
Power Supply
Before removing the PSU remove the mains fuse from the terminal block and disconnect the battery. The display
should be off and no LEDs should be illuminated; inside or outside the panel. Unplug the PSU connector on the
EDA-Q2010 processor board (see diagram on page 10). Remove the live, earth and neutral wires that run from the
terminal block to the PSU. Undo the two M3 nuts that secure the PSU to the panel chassis and remove the PSU. Fit
the replacement PSU and secure with the two M3 nuts. Plug the connector back into the main processor board
and reconnect the live, earth and neutral wires to the terminal block. Insert the mains fuse into the terminal block
and wait until the panel has powered up before reconnecting the battery.
Display Board
Power down the panel by disconnecting the battery and removing the mains fuse from the terminal block. Unplug
the ribbon cable from the display board and remove the 5 screws holding it in place. Once the new display board
has been screwed into place, fit the ribbon cable and apply power to the panel. Once the panel has powered up,
reconnect the battery.
Processor Board
Power down the panel by disconnecting the battery and removing the mains fuse from the terminal block. Unplug
the ribbon cable connecting the display and processor boards. Unscrew the antenna connector and unplug the
PSU connector. Undo the terminal blocks used to connect any external equipment from the panel relays, inputs,
sounder circuits and RS485 terminals. The board is held in place by 4 push pins. Press the tab into the middle of the
pin and pull upward gently on the board to release each corner, until the board can be removed from the chassis.
The replacement board can simply be pushed down onto the pins until each corner clicks into place. Reconnect all
wiring before fitting the mains fuse to the terminal block. Once the panel has powered up, reconnect the battery.
Fuses
This panel uses 5 x 250V 500mA and 1 x 250V 3.15A fuses.
