Please note, some of the engineering functions provided on the panel go beyond the scope of EN54 Part 2.
A caution symbol (left) is used to indicate where such a function is non-compliant with EN54-2.
BASIC OVERVIEW & KEY FEATURES
The fire alarm panel features include the following:
•
Two, four or eight AlarmSense™ zone circuits (dependent on the model purchased);
The design of the panel’s zone circuits allows AlarmSense™ detectors, manual call points and sounders to
be fitted across the same two zone wires (conventional panels typically use four wires, two for the
detectors/call points and two for the sounders). In many installations it is more cost-effective to install a two
wire system rather than a conventional four wire system due to savings in cabling and installation labour. It
should be noted that no other type of device is compatible with the Zone circuits except AlarmSense™
detectors, AlarmSense™ manual call points and AlarmSense™ sounders.
•
Four conventional sounder circuits (designed for use with non-AlarmSense™ sounders);
•
A flush or surface mountable plastic lid and enclosure;
•
A wide range of secure user functions (as detailed in the separate User Manual/Log Book) including the
ability to disable/enable a large number of system functions, as specified in EN54;
•
Keypad and keyswitch entry to access authorised user controls (access level two);
•
A wide range of engineering functions, including:
Selectable zone delay facility
Non-latching zones facility. Note: This function is non-compliant with EN54-2.
Coincidence (double-knock) facility. Note: This function is non-compliant with EN54-2.
Zone test facility

The following optional EN54 Part 2 features:
Output(s) to fire alarm devices (Clause 7.8). Four conventional sounder circuits are provided to drive
external alarm sounders.
Delays to outputs (Clause 7.11). A delay facility (selectable on a zone by zone basis) is provided to delay
the alarm sounders, remote fire and/or auxiliary outputs.
Test condition (Clause 10.0). A zone test facility is provided.
•
The following features that are not required by EN54 Part 2:
Reset output (RESET) open collector output which provides a signal to reset any part of the fire alarm
system (if required) whilst the panel is being reset.
Remote output (REM) open collector output and Auxiliary fire relay output (AUX) which provide a signal to
any part of the fire alarm system that needs to be activated during a fire alarm condition.
Two (non-latching) auxiliary input connections; ‘class change’ and ‘alert’.
•
A Fault relay output (FAULT).
Important Note: It is possible for the panel to determine if an AlarmSense™ Manual Call Point, or an
AlarmSense™ detector has triggered a zone into alarm. This allows the system to be optionally set up so
that, if required, the activation of a manual call point will override delays and coincidence.

CFP ALARMSENSE 2/4/8 ZONE FIRE ALARM PANEL
THE FIRE PANEL ENCLOSURE
The panel is supplied with a plastic detachable lid, a plastic back box and a minimum of two separate PCBs.
The relative location of these PCBs is indicated in figure 1 below.
The panel can be surface or semi-flush mounted. It must be sited indoors in an area not subject to conditions
likely to affect its performance, e.g. damp, salt-air, water ingress, extremes of temperature, physical abuse,
etc. It should be sited at a height where it is easily accessible and in a prominent position within the
building. Ideally, the indicators on the front of the enclosure should be at eye level.
Typical locations for the panel are in the entrance foyer/hallway of a building at ground floor level (the first
and most obvious point of contact for emergency services) or a security office that is likely to be
permanently manned.
Removing the lid and base PCBs
To protect the electronics from damage and to expose the base mounting holes, the panel’s lid and PCBs
should be removed prior to first fix installation.
Anti-static handling guidelines
Please ensure that the following electro-static handling precautions are taken immediately
prior to handling the panel’s PCBs or any other static-sensitive components:
Before handling any static-sensitive items, operators should rid themselves of any personal electro-static
charge by momentarily touching any sound connection to safety earth, e.g. a radiator.
Always handle PCBs by their sides and avoid touching the legs of any components.
PCBs should be stored in a clean, dry place which is free from vibration, dust and excessive heat. Retaining
the PCBs in a suitable cardboard box will also guard them against mechanical damage.

FIRST FIX
All system wiring should be installed to meet BS 5839 Part 1 and BS 7671 (Wiring Regulations).
Other national standards of installation should be used where applicable.
Cable types and limitations
Consult Clause 26 of BS 5839 Part 1: Fire detection and fire alarm systems for buildings - code of practice
for system design, installation, commissioning and maintenance, for detailed information on cables,
wiring and other interconnections.
To comply with EMC (Electro Magnetic Compatibility) regulations and to reduce the risk of electrical
interference in the system wiring, we recommend the use of fire-resistant screened cables throughout
the installation.
Correct cable glanding is essential and due regard should be made to any system specifications which
demand a certain cable type.
Mains wiring
The requirement for the Mains supply to the fire panel is fixed wiring, using three core cable (no less than
1mm2 and no more than 2.5mm2) or a suitable three conductor system, fed from an isolating switched fused
spur, fused at 3A. This should be secure from unauthorised operation and be marked ‘FIRE ALARM: DO NOT
SWITCH OFF’. The Mains supply must be exclusive to the fire panel.
(As an alternative to a switched fused spur, a double pole isolating device may be used providing it meets
the appropriate national wiring regulations - see diagram below.)

Planning the cable layout in the panel
The detector and sounder circuit cabling is classed as extra low voltage and should be segregated away
from Mains voltages. Careful planning is needed to ensure this, see figure 2 (below) for guidance. Drill
centre points are provided in the panel base to aid drilling tools. Cut out suitable holes in the panel using
a hole saw directed by a pilot bit in the centre of the hole saw. Always ensure that if a hole is cut out it is
filled with a good quality cable gland. Any unused holes must be securely blanked off.

These four drill centre
points are for incoming
Mains cable only
Do not drill any additional holes
for cable entry in this shaded area.
This is where the PCBs and
backup batteries will be located.
Holes should be cut

AlarmSense™ zone circuit wiring
Depending on the model purchased, two, four or eight AlarmSense™ zone circuit connections are available
on the fire alarm panel. A maximum of 25 AlarmSense™ detectors or manual call points can fitted to each
circuit and these can be mixed in any order. AlarmSense™ sounders may also be included in this 25, however
there are limitations to the number of sounders which can be used (please refer to page 8 for important
advice on sounder loading and distribution).
Only AlarmSense™ devices can be used on the zone circuits.

end-of-line capacitor fitted at the panel.
Note that an open circuit fault on zone wiring will stop some or all of the detectors, manual call points and
sounders operating, and a short circuit will stop all devices operating.
For more specific device wiring information, refer to the instructions provided with the AlarmSense™
devices used.
The wiring for each zone circuit should be connected to the relevant 5mm connector block on the Main
Control PCB and their screens terminated at the panel ’s base earth post (see page 13 for more precise
second fix connection details).

CFP ALARMSENSE 2/4/8 ZONE FIRE ALARM PANEL
Typical sounder circuit wiring
Four conventional sounder circuits are available on the fire alarm panel. These are designed for use with
conventional sounders and bells only. AlarmSense™ sounders should not be used on these conventional
sounder circuits (use these on the AlarmSense™ zone circuits instead, see page 7).

All sounders must be polarised as unpolarised sounders will show a sounder fault.
A 6k8 end-of-line resistor (provided in the panel’s accessory pack) must be connected at the end of each sounder
circuit to allow the wiring to be monitored.
The wiring for each sounder circuit should be connected to the relevant 5mm connector block on the Main
Control PCB and their screens terminated at the panel’s base earth post (see page 13 for detailed second fix
connection information).
Important sounder loading and distribution information
The panel’s power supply is designed to give a maximum output current of 1.5A. In addition to powering the
sounders, this current is also used for handling short circuit faults and supplying the panel’s battery charging
circuit and any output relays which may be fitted. As a safe margin and to allow for these other loads, the total
sounder loading for the panel should not exceed a maximum of 1.25A.
Each zone circuit and each sounder circuit will support a maximum sounder alarm current of 200mA. Currents
in excess of this value will cause the circuit’s fuse to trip.
The sounders should be distributed throughout the building according to the sound levels required, but the
load should be distributed as equally as possible across each circuit.
Note that faults on zone circuits affect the detectors, manual call points and sounders, so plan accordingly for
the effect of possible wiring faults.
Typical auxiliary input wiring
Two non-latching auxiliary input connections are available on the panel, as detailed below:
Alert Input (ALERT): Operates the sounders intermittently when connected to 0V.
Class Change Input (CC): Operates the sounders continuously when connected to 0V.
If either of the above are triggered, they WILL NOT operate the panel’s remote or auxiliary fire outputs.

CFP ALARMSENSE 2/4/8 ZONE FIRE ALARM PANEL
Typical auxiliary output wiring
Two auxiliary open collector outputs and one auxiliary output connections are available on the panel, as detailed below:
Reset Output
(RESET)
Turns on during the panel’s reset cycle. Can be used for resetting fire alarm system devices
such as roller-shutter doors or beam detectors. This output remains active for approximately
one second after all other outputs have returned to normal.
Remote Output
(REM)
Turns on during any new fire alarm condition or when the panel’s Silence/Resound Sounders
button is pressed to manually evacuate the building. The output turns off when the panel is
silenced. This output does not turn on when the Class Change or Alert inputs are asserted
(unless there are other fire alarm conditions present on the system). Note: It is possible to
delay the activation of the Remote Output to correspond with any zone delay(s) that have
been programmed into the panel at Access Level 3. If required, the remote output can be
disabled by the user. When the Remote output is activated the Remote Output light will be
lit. This output will not operate from a non-latching zone.
This output provides a positive voltage supply for peripheral loads (such as relays) which are
controlled from the above outputs. It is protected by a current limiting fuse which trips if one
or more of the loads are shorted. This affects all loads and results in appropriate faults being
reported at the panel. The current consumed by this output must be considered when
calculating battery standby times. DO NOT CONNECT DOOR HOLDER CIRCUITS TO THIS
OUTPUT AS THEY WILL REDUCE BATTERY STANDBY TIME - USE A SEPARATE POWER SUPPLY.

To protect the output stage, only
24V polarised relays with back EMF
diodes should be used. If any of the
relays are to be used to switch
Mains potentials, then suitable
relays should be chosen and
installed and wired accordingly, so
as not to compromise the electrical
safety of the fire alarm system.
Two relay outputs are available on the panel, as detailed below:
Auxiliary Fire
Output
(AUX)
Turns on during any fire alarm condition and off when the panel is reset. This output does
not turn on if the Class Change or Alert inputs are asserted or if the panel’s Silence/Resound
Sounders button is pressed to manually evacuate the building (unless there are other fire
alarm conditions present on the system). Note: It is possible to delay the activation of the
Auxiliary Output to correspond with any zone delay(s) that have been programmed into the
panel at Access Level 3. If required, the Auxiliary Output can be disabled by the user. This
output will not operate from a non-latching zone.
Fault Output
(FAULT)
This output is normally energised. When a fault occurs, the output turns off to ensure failsafe
operation even in the event of total power loss. It is important that the peripheral part of
the system this output drives is able to handle the output’s ‘normally on’ condition. If
required, this output can be disabled by the user.
Connect each output to the relevant 5mm connector block on the Main Control PCB and terminate their screens
at the panel’s base earth post (see page 13 for more details).

CFP ALARMSENSE 2/4/8 ZONE FIRE ALARM PANEL
SECOND FIX
Connecting the panel
Connecting the panel’s internal connections and PCBs should be undertaken immediately before commissioning.
Before you begin, we recommend you check all devices on the detector and sounder circuits are correctly
connected (see pages 7 and 8) and that cable integrity is verified throughout the installation.
Important: DO NOT use a high voltage insulation tester with any electronic devices connected.
Faults occurring in the wiring which are not picked up at this stage will almost certainly result in spurious and
intermittent faults when the equipment is energised.
Installing the Power Supply PCB
The panel’s Power Supply PCB combines the functions of a Mains to dc switched mode power supply unit, battery
charging unit and battery monitoring unit.
WHEN CONNECTED, THE POWER SUPPLY PCB STORES VOLTAGES AT UP TO 400Vdc AND MAY BE
LETHAL IF TOUCHED. DO NOT TOUCH THE PCB WHILST THE RED ‘HAZARDOUS VOLTAGES PRESENT’
LIGHT IS LIT.
Under no circumstances should the fire alarm panel be operated without the Power Supply PCB correctly mounted
in the panel’s enclosure and the three retaining screws securely tightened.
The PCB should be positioned in the panel as shown in figure 8 on page 11.
Connecting the Mains
The general requirement for the Mains supply to this equipment is described on page 6.
DO NOT attempt to connect Mains to the panel until you are fully conversant with the layout and features of the
Power Supply PCB, as described above and in figure 8 on page 11.
The incoming Mains cable should be brought into the panel at the top right hand side of the enclosure and
terminated at the connector block (CONN1) on the Power Supply PCB.
Make sure the Mains earth wire is connected directly to this connector block and NOT to the secondary base earth
post which is provided for making off detector and sounder circuit screens.
The Power Supply PCB’s earth strap MUST be connected to the spade on the chassis earth post
before operation. The spade is compressed against a shoulder on the post via the lowest nut.
The earth post may appear loose, this is intended by design.
Connecting the standby batteries
Two new, good quality and fully charged 12V valve regulated lead acid (VRLA) batteries are required as the
emergency standby power supply for the panel. Caution: DO NOT use any other type of batteries due to the risk
of explosion.
The batteries should be connected in series and located in the panel’s enclosure as shown in figure 9 on page 11.
The battery leads, link wire and nylon cable ties are supplied in the panel’s accessory pack. Run the battery leads
through the slits in the panel’s lower plastic ribs and secure the batteries into position using the nylon cable ties
as shown.
The panel’s sophisticated battery monitoring unit protects the batteries against deep discharge by activating a cut
off circuit when the standby supply voltage reaches 21V approx. If batteries are not fitted, are discharged or in
poor condition, a PSU fault will show at the fire alarm panel.
The capacity of the batteries used will depend upon the required standby time. To calculate the batteries required
for any given standby period, please refer to the calculation guide on page 23.
Always dispose of used batteries in accordance with the battery manufacturer’s instructions.

Installing the Main Control PCB
The panel’s Main Control PCB provides all the connections for the system’s detector circuits, sounder circuits,
auxiliary inputs and auxiliary outputs. It also provides the engineer with access to a wide range of engineering
functions, details of which appear later in this manual.
Before any connections can be made, the Main Control PCB must first be securely positioned inside the fire alarm
panel (see figure 10 below) using the five retaining screws. As the PCB is presented to the panel, remember to
attach the telecoms-style connecting cable to SKT2 on the reverse of the Main Control PCB and to PL1 on the Power
Supply PCB.
Important: SKT1 on the reverse of the Main Control PCB is for the connection of optional system expansion devices
such as Network Driver Cards (for repeater panels) and Relay Output Boards. If any of these devices are to be used,
refer to the individual installation instructions supplied with them as they will need to be fitted to the panel before
the Main Control PCB.
All of the 5mm connector blocks located across the top of the PCB can be removed to aid installation. Take care
when reconnecting them that you do so the correct way round. We recommend that you clearly label all system
wiring to reduce the likelihood of incorrect connection.

Connecting the auxiliary inputs, auxiliary outputs and relay outputs
Incoming auxiliary inputs, auxiliary outputs and relay outputs cables should be connected to the relevant connector
block terminals on the Main Control PCB. If screened cables have been used, all screens should be adequately
insulated and connected between the nut and washers on the base earth post (see below) using eyed crimp
connectors (as per the detector and sounder circuit examples shown in figure 11).
For a full description of the inputs and outputs available on the panel, including typical wiring diagrams, please
refer to pages 8 & 9.
Important notes regarding the earthing of screens
All screens should be adequately insulated and
connected between the nut and washers on the base
earth post (see right) using suitable eyed crimp
connectors. Do not disturb the lower nut, this must be
secure to ensure earth continuity. The base earth post is provided
for terminating earth screens or drains and not as the main
earthing point. The system designer or installer must review the
external earth bonding (if required) with respect to the national
wiring rules. That is, if the type of installation requires protective
earth bonding, then this must be applied externally and in
conjunction with the type of earthing system employed on that
particular site. This must always be done with regard to the
appropriate national wiring rules.

PROGRAMMING THE PANEL
An overview of the panel’s controls
Three control levels are available on the panel - general user (access level one), authorised user (access level two)
and engineer (access level three), as detailed below:
General user controls (access level one)
When the panel is in its normal state, the indicator lights on the panel front give a comprehensive overview of the
system’s current status. Any fire and fault conditions are clearly displayed, disablements highlighted and the status
of all outputs reported. The only functions that can be performed when the panel is in this state are:
•
•
•
Muting the panel’s internal sounder.
Overriding any delays which may have been programmed into the panel.
Putting the panel into access level two to access the authorised user controls (see below).
Authorised user controls (access level two)
To avoid unauthorised changes to critical parts of the fire alarm system, certain fire alarm panel controls are only
available to authorised users. These include:
•
•
•
•
•
Silencing the sounders.
Resetting an alarm condition.
Manually activating the alarm sounders (to evacuate a building)
Testing the indicator lights.
Disabling or enabling any (or all) of the following: zones, sounders, the fault output, the remote output, the
auxiliary fire output and delays.
The authorised user controls can be accessed by entering the code 2 1 4 3 using the keypad or, by turning the
keyswitch to the ‘I’ position.
For detailed information on how to use the general and authorised user controls, please refer to the User Manual
/ Log Book.
Engineer controls (access level three)
It is possible to read or interrogate the site specific data at this level. The following controls are available to
competent service personnel only:
•
•
•
•
•
•
The programming of coincidence / double knock. Note: This function is non-compliant with EN54-2.
The setting-up zones for non-latching operation. Note: This function is non-compliant with EN54-2.
The programming of delays.
The invoking of test procedures.
Programming silenced sounders to resound, or not resound, when new zone in alarm.

A brief overview of these functions appears below. Details of how to gain access to the engineer controls and how
to use them appears on pages 16 and 17. We recommend, however, that you carefully read the sections below
before attempting to implement any changes to the factory defaults or existing system set-up.

The programming of coincidence (also referred to as ‘double knock’) is a feature often used on sites where the
consequence of a false alarm can be onerous, e.g. where the panel is used to trigger a sprinkler, or gas
extinguishant system.
Coincidence is programmed into the panel in pairs of zones, the pairs being zones 1 and 2; zones 3 and 4 (if fitted),
zones 5 and 6 (if fitted); and zones 7 and 8 (if fitted).
When any of these pairs are programmed to operate in coincidence mode, there must be alarms on both zones
before the sounders and outputs are turned on. If only one of the pair goes into alarm, the panel will indicate the
alarm condition by illuminating the relevant indicator on the front panel and sounding its internal sounder, thus
prompting the user to investigate.
If found to be false, the alarm can be reset by the user. If found to be a true fire condition, the user can manually
activate the alarm sounders and outputs by entering access level two and pressing the SILENCE/RESOUND
SOUNDERS button.
CFP ALARMSENSE 2/4/8 ZONE INSTALLATION & MAINTENANCE MANUAL • Approved Document No. DFU7002020 Rev 1 • Page 14 of 24
CFP ALARMSENSE 2/4/8 ZONE FIRE ALARM PANEL
Important note: If link PLK1 is fitted on the Main Control PCB (see right) triggering a manual call
point on any zones programmed for coincidence will activate the alarm sounders and outputs
immediately. (Alarms from detectors will still be processed as described previously in this section).
PLK1
MCP/SOUNDER
FUNCTION
From an installation point of view, detectors on zones assigned for coincidence should be installed in close
proximity to each other. This ensures if the user is not around to investigate the cause of the alarm, that a detector
in alarm on one zone is quickly confirmed by its neighbour on the corresponding zone in the event of a real fire.
Alarms raised in zones not set up for coincidence will be processed as normal.
!
Non-Latching Zones (Note: This function is non-compliant with EN54-2)
EN54-2
N5
54-2
54
2
Any or all of the zones on the fire alarm panel can be set up for non-latching operation.
Alarms raised from non-latching zones are indicated as normal but when the alarm stimulus that triggered the zone
is cleared, the alarm condition at the panel automatically clears too (i.e. a manual panel reset is not required).
Note: Alarms raised on non-latching zones will not trigger the panel’s auxiliary fire and remote outputs.
Non-latching zones are often used to interconnect fire panels to prevent a ‘deadly embrace’ situation. This is a permanent
unresettable alarm condition arising from multiple fire panels simultaneously flagging latching alarm conditions.
Delays
A delay of 1 to 10 minutes can be set between the fire alarm panel being triggered to its alarm sounders and
outputs being activated. This is a particularly useful feature in public places where the nuisance and panic caused
by a false alarm must be avoided.
Use a small terminal
The delay period is set by adjusting the VR1 control on the Main
Control PCB (see right) with a terminal screwdriver. Note: The delay
period will apply to all delayed zones.

screwdriver to adjust the
length of the Delay period.
For information on how to
assign individual zones so
the delay period applies to
them see pages 16 and 17
VR1
When an alarm occurs on a delayed zone, it is processed as normal.
However, the activation of the sounders and outputs is postponed until the delay period has expired, thus allowing
the cause of the alarm to be investigated by the user.
During the delay period, the Output Delays light on the panel front pulses to indicate the delay is operative.
Pressing the SILENCE/RESOUND SOUNDERS button will override the delay at any time and result in the sounders
and outputs being turned on. Pressing the panel’s reset button during a delay period (i.e. in the event of a false
alarm) will return the system to normal.
Important note: If link PLK1 is fitted on the Main Control PCB (see right) triggering a manual call
point on any zone(s) programmed for delays will activate the alarm sounders and outputs
immediately. If link PLK1 is not fitted and a manual call point is triggered on any zone(s)
programmed for delays, the remote output will be triggered immediately, but the sounders and
auxiliary output will still be subject to programmed delays.
PLK1
MCP/SOUNDER
FUNCTION
Test
To aid commissioning and routine maintenance checks, a non-latching ‘one man walk test’ facility is available.
When a detector or manual call point is triggered on any zone(s) in test, the alarm sounders operate for
approximately one second on and eight seconds off. This cycle continues until the cause of the alarm is removed
(either by the test smoke clearing from the detector or the manual call point being reset), at which point the
detector circuit also automatically resets. As the engineer walks around the site, additional devices on the zone(s)
in test can be checked with the momentary activation of the alarm sounders confirming correct operation.
Zones programmed for test, will be indicated at the panel by their Fault lights pulsing quickly in synchronisation
with the General Test light. Should an alarm occur on a zone that is not programmed for test, the alarm will be
processed in the normal way. All zones that are in test will have their tests temporarily suspended until the alarm(s)
from the other zones are reset. At this point zone testing may resume. In other words, the alarm will operate
correctly despite being in test mode.
Program the sounders function
Once the sounders have been activated after an alarm, then silenced, it is possible to set up the panel so that a
new alarm raised from another zone resounds, or does NOT resound, the sounders in accordance with EN54-2
{Clause 7.8d}.
Fault diagnosis
A wide range of fault diagnosis features are available at access level three. These are described in detail on pages
18 to 22 of this manual.

FAULT DIAGNOSIS
Fault indications
When a fault occurs on a critical part of the fire alarm system, the panel responds by activating its internal sounder
and illuminating the General Fault light and any other Fault light(s) relating to the fault. The panel’s fault output
will also activate (provided it has not been disabled).
The type of faults typically indicated at the fire alarm panel are highlighted below. A more precise diagnosis of
fault conditions is available at access level three (the summaries below refer to the sections you should read later
in this manual for further information). Unless otherwise stated, repairing any particular fault condition will
automatically clear the fault from the panel. If the panel is reset whilst faults still exist, the faults will reappear
after a short period of time.
Note: It is possible to mute the panel’s internal sounder at any time by momentarily pressing the SILENCE INTERNAL
SOUNDER button.
General Fault
Zone Faults
This light flashes yellow when there is a
fault on any part of the fire alarm system.
It is always lit in tandem with at least one
other Fault light which displays precise
information on the type of fault detected.
All of the panel’s zone circuits are monitored for open and short
circuit faults and detector head removal (unless there is an alarm
condition or the zone is in test or disabled). All faults are indicated
by the relevant Zone Fault light pulsing yellow.

Continue pressing the ACCESS LEVEL THREE FUNCTIONS button until HEAD OUT light pulses.
Any existing Zone Fault lights are suppressed and the zone light(s) for any zone(s) with a head out fault
are illuminated, e.g. if a detector head has been removed on zone 2, Zone 2’s Fault light will be lit.
To find out if an open circuit fault has occurred on a detector zone:
1.
Follow steps 1 and 2 outlined above until the OPEN CIRCUIT light pulses.
2.
Any existing Zone Fault lights are suppressed and the zone light(s) for any zone(s) with an open circuit
fault are illuminated, e.g. if the wiring on zone 6 is broken, Zone 6’s Fault light will be lit.
To find out if a short circuit fault has occurred on a detector zone:
1.
Follow steps 1 and 2 detailed above until the SHORT CIRCUIT light pulses.
2.
Any existing Zone Fault lights are suppressed and the zone light(s) for any zone (s) that have a short circuit
fault are illuminated, e.g. if the wiring on zone 4 has been shorted, Zone 4’s Fault light will be lit.
Suggested actions:
1. Disconnect the faulty detector zone completely and refit the end-of-line capacitor at the panel. If the
fault condition clears this confirms there is a wiring fault.
2.
Refit and double check the wiring and the end-of-line capacitor on the zone. Trace the fault with
consideration for the type of fault indicated (see above).
Note: A common short circuit fault is a detector head badly seated in a base which is not making a true
connection.
1.2 Power supply faults
A power supply fault indicates one, or more, of the following faults. Page 11 of this manual must be referenced
when carrying out any of the suggested action procedures described below.
•
The Mains supply voltage is too low or has failed completely, the Mains fuse (F1) has ruptured or the PSU has failed.
Symptoms: The panel runs on batteries, but not on Mains.
Suggested actions:
1. Taking all due precautions, check Mains voltages are within range (see Technical Specifications, page 24)
by probing Live and Neutral connections at connector block (CONN1). If not within range, repair Mains
supply.
2.
If within range and the red Hazardous Voltages Present light is not lit, check the Mains fuse (F1).
3.
If the fuse is intact, the red Hazardous Voltages Present light on the Power Supply PCB may, or may not,
be lit. The PSU is faulty and should be replaced. Isolate the Mains supply and wait for the red Hazardous
Voltages Present light to extinguish before replacing the Power Supply PCB.

CFP ALARMSENSE 2/4/8 ZONE FIRE ALARM PANEL
•
The battery fuse (F2) is ruptured.
Symptoms: The panel runs on Mains, but not on batteries.
Suggested actions:
1. Isolate the Mains supply and disconnect the batteries.
2. Remove the Main Control PCB and check the battery fuse (F2) on the Power Supply PCB for continuity.
3.
If ruptured check the Power Supply and Main Control PCBs for signs of damage. If none found, replace
fuse with the correct type, ensuring that the fuse clip is not damaged when re-inserting the fuse.
4. Refit the Main Control PCB and reconnect the batteries.
5. If the green Supply Present light is lit, reconnect the Mains supply and check that the power supply
fault has cleared. If the Supply Present light is not lit, either the Power Supply PCB or the Main Control
PCB is faulty and should be replaced.
6. If the battery fuse (F2) is intact, proceed to check the battery voltage/condition (see below).
•
The battery voltage is too low, or in poor condition.
Symptoms: The panel runs on Mains, but may or may not run on batteries.
If the Mains supply has failed and the battery supply has been discharged to the point where the voltage is too
low (i.e less than 21V), the panel will automatically turn off to avoid damaging the batteries by allowing them
to deep discharge. The panel will not restart unless fresh, fully charged batteries are connected, or the Mains
supply is restored.
If the Mains supply has not failed, but the total battery voltage is less than 21V, the PSU will not charge the
batteries to avoid damage to the charging circuit. If the batteries can be charged, the panel will still show a
power supply fault until they have sufficient charge, at which point the power supply fault will automatically
be cleared. Depending on battery size and the depth of discharge, this may take several hours. If the batteries
are in poor condition they must be replaced.
If the batteries (or their leads) are high resistance, then this will also result in a PSU fault. This fault may occur
due to:
- batteries that have been stored for many months
- low quality batteries
- old batteries
- loose/poor connections to the batteries.
If the batteries are in good condition and all the other checks have been performed and no faults found, the
Power Supply PCB is faulty and should be replaced. Note: Batteries that are not connected, connected in
reverse, or with opposite polarities will also cause a power supply fault condition.
•
Supply Present light not lit.
If the Supply Present light is not lit one of the following faults has occurred:
1.
Both the Mains supply and the standby batteries have failed. This could be because the Mains supply has
failed and the batteries have been exhausted.
Suggested action: Restore the Mains supply and the Supply Present light should come back on.
However, if the batteries are discharged this will be recognised as a fault by the panel and indicated as
such. See ‘Battery voltage too low’ above.
2.
The Power Supply PCB, the Main Control PCB and/or the cable that connects them is faulty.
If the Mains supply is present (indicated by the red Hazardous Voltages Present light being lit on the
Power Supply PCB), check that the connector cable between the Power Supply PCB and the Main Control
PCB is fully inserted at both ends. If so, either the Power Supply PCB and/or the Main Control PCB and/or
the connector cable are faulty and should be replaced.

1.3 System faults
System faults are unique in that they do not automatically clear when rectified. Three different types of system
fault can occur; watchdog fault, site memory corruption fault or PLL (phase lock loop) fault.
•
To find out which type of system fault has occurred:
1.
Remove the panel’s lid using the Torx key provided and press the ACCESS LEVEL THREE FUNCTIONS
button on the Main Control PCB to gain access to the panel’s engineer functions (see below). Note: If
pressing the ACCESS LEVEL THREE FUNCTIONS button (or any other button) does not cause any change
in state, the Main Control PCB is faulty and must be replaced.

TEST
Continue pressing the ACCESS LEVEL THREE FUNCTIONS button until the SYSTEM FAULT light pulses.
If there is a Watchdog Fault, Zone 1’s Fault light will be lit.
If there is a Site Memory Corruption Fault, Zone 2’s Fault light will be lit.
If there is a PLL Fault, Zone 3’s Fault light will be lit.
For a detailed description of what each fault is, and suggested action on how to rectify it, see below:
•
Watchdog Fault
This type of system fault occurs when the panel’s microprocessor has failed to operate correctly. In this case the
panel’s ‘Watchdog’ circuit will attempt to bring the microprocessor back under control and return all outputs
and indicators to their normal state. If the watchdog cannot restart the microprocessor then the General Fault
and System Fault lights will be cycle continuously, plus the panel’s internal sounder will activate.
Suggested action:
Press the panel’s RESET button and, if still in access level three, the ESCAPE ACCESS button. This should clear
the fault. If the fault persists, the Main Control PCB is faulty and must be replaced.
•
Site Memory Corruption Fault
This type of system fault occurs when site specific data held in the panel’s microprocessor is found to be corrupt.
Suggested action:
1. Check all the site specific data (delays, disablements, etc) at user and engineering levels. The System SetUp Data Chart in the User Manual / Log Book (page 13) includes relevant set-up information.
•
2.
If errors are found, reprogram the panel accordingly to clear the corruption.
3.
If no errors are found, temporarily change some data, e.g. disable zone 1, exit user mode and then reenable zone 1 to return to the original settings. This should clear the fault. If the fault persists, the
memory is damaged and the Main Control PCB must be replaced.
PLL Fault
This type of system fault occurs as a result of a momentary disturbance in the panel’s microprocessor.
Suggested action:
Resetting the panel should clear the fault. If the fault persists, the Main Control PCB is faulty and must be
replaced.

Any existing Zone Fault lights are suppressed and the zone light(s) corresponding to the repeaters in
fault are illuminated, e.g. if repeaters 2 and 7 are faulty, the Fault Lights for zones 2 and 7 will be lit.
To exit access level three, press the ESCAPE ACCESS button at any time.
Suggested action: Refer to the Repeater Panel Instructions for repeater fault-finding advice.
1.5 Sounder faults
•
To determine which of the panel’s four sounder circuits are faulty:
1.
Disconnect each sounder circuit from the Main Control PCB in turn and measure the resistance between
the two wires. A good circuit will present only the end-of-line resistor value. Any other resistance value
shows a fault.
2.
If the readings from all sounder circuits are correct, take their end-of-line resistors and connect them to
the sounder circuits at the panel without the sounder circuit wiring. If the fault still persists, the panel is
faulty and must be replaced.
3.
If a sounder circuit fault is detected, correct the fault and reconnect the sounder circuit. The sounder
fault will automatically clear within 60 seconds.
Note: If the sounder circuit is shorted and the alarm voltage applied, the relevant sounder fuse will trip. When
the fault is removed, the fuse will automatically reset.
1.6 Remote output faults
If the panel’s 24V auxiliary output (which is typically used to supply relays switched by the remote output) is
subject to current overload, its protection fuse will trip. This will result in the remote fire output showing a fault
condition by flashing its respective light.
Repairing the fault will reset the fuse and clear the associated Fault light.
MAINTENANCE
Periodic system maintenance should be carried out on the system as prescribed in the local design, maintenance
and installation regulations.
The Fire Alarm panel’s standby batteries should be checked for integrity of the connections, deposits indicating
venting, and a periodic load test with the Mains supply disabled to ensure adequate battery capacity. Both
batteries should be renewed if there is any doubt about their integrity.

STANDBY BATTERY CALCULATION GUIDE
The standby time of the fire alarm panel, after the Mains has failed, depends on the quiescent loading
of the panel, the alarm load of the panel, and the capacity of the batteries.
To determine the capacity of batteries required for any given standby period, the following formula
should be used:
Standby Time in Ah = 1.25 x [(TxA) + H x (P+Z)]
The multiplier 1.25 is present to account for lost capacity over the life of the batteries.
H = Number of hours standby required
P = The quiescent current of the panel = 0.025A
This figure is with the Mains failed, beeper operative and the Power Supply and General Fault lights lit.
If there are other quiescent drains on the panel then these must be included.
Z = The total quiescent current of all zone devices
See Zone Circuit specification on page 24 for quiescent consumption of AlarmSense™ devices.
A = The total alarm current of the sounders (plus any other devices connected to other alarm outputs).
See Zone Circuit specification on page 24 for quiescent consumption of AlarmSense™ devices. Also, take
into consideration conventional sounder load (where relevant).
T = The amount of time in hours required for the alarm (most commonly being half an hour).
Example 1:
The panel has 70 detectors each consuming 50µA each, 20 sounders at 20mA each, the required standby
time is 24 hours and the required alarm time is 0.5 hours.
Z = 70 x 0.00005 = 0.0035A
P = 0.025A
A = 20 x 0.02 = 0.4A
H = 24
T = 0.5
Standby Time in Ah = 1.25 x [(0.5 x 0.4) + 24 x (0.025 + 0.0035)] = 1.1Ah.
Therefore, batteries with at least 1.1Ah capacity are required.
Example 2:
The panel has 100 detectors each consuming 50µA each, 40 sounders at 20mA each, the required standby
time is 72 hours and the required alarm time is 0.5 hours.
Z = 100 x 0.00005 = 0.005A
P = 0.025A
A = 40 x 0.02 = 0.8A
H = 24
T = 0.5
Standby Time in Ah = 1.25 x [(0.5 x 0.8) + 72 x (0.025 + 0.005)] = 3.2Ah
Therefore, batteries with at least 3.2Ah capacity are required.
