Fire Alarm System Limitations
While a fire alarm system may lower insurance rates, it is not a substitute for fire insurance!
An automatic fire alarm system—typically made up of
smoke detectors, heat detectors, manual pull stations, audible
warning devices, and a fire alarm control panel with remote
notification capability—can provide early warning of a developing fire. Such a system, however, does not assure protection
against property damage or loss of life resulting from a fire.
The Manufacturer recommends that smoke and/or heat detectors be located throughout a protected premise following the
recommendations of the current edition of the National Fire
Protection Association Standard 72-1999 (NFPA 72-1999),
manufacturer's recommendations, State and local codes, and
the recommendations contained in the Guide for Proper Use of
System Smoke Detectors, which is made available at no
charge to all installing dealers. A study by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (an agency of the United States
government) indicated that smoke detectors may not go off in
as many as 35% of all fires. While fire alarm systems are
designed to provide early warning against fire, they do not
guarantee warning or protection against fire. A fire alarm system may not provide timely or adequate warning, or simply
may not function, for a variety of reasons:
Smoke detectors may not sense fire where smoke cannot
reach the detectors such as in chimneys, in or behind walls, on
roofs, or on the other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors
also may not sense a fire on another level or floor of a building.
A second-floor detector, for example, may not sense a firstfloor or basement fire.
Particles of combustion or “smoke” from a developing fire
may not reach the sensing chambers of smoke detectors
because:
•
Barriers such as closed or partially closed doors, walls, or
chimneys may inhibit particle or smoke flow.
•
Smoke particles may become “cold,” stratify, and not reach
the ceiling or upper walls where detectors are located.
•
Smoke particles may be blown away from detectors by air
outlets.
•
Smoke particles may be drawn into air returns before
reaching the detector.
The amount of “smoke” present may be insufficient to alarm
smoke detectors. Smoke detectors are designed to alarm at
various levels of smoke density. If such density levels are not
created by a developing fire at the location of detectors, the
detectors will not go into alarm.
Smoke detectors, even when working properly, have sensing
limitations. Detectors that have photoelectronic sensing
chambers tend to detect smoldering fires better than flaming
fires, which have little visible smoke. Detectors that have ionizing-type sensing chambers tend to detect fast-flaming fires
better than smoldering fires. Because fires develop in different
ways and are often unpredictable in their growth, neither type
of detector is necessarily best and a given type of detector
may not provide adequate warning of a fire.
Smoke detectors cannot be expected to provide adequate
warning of fires caused by arson, children playing with
matches (especially in bedrooms), smoking in bed, and violent
explosions (caused by escaping gas, improper storage of
flammable materials, etc.).
2
Heat detectors do not sense particles of combustion and
alarm only when heat on their sensors increases at a predetermined rate or reaches a predetermined level. Rate-of-rise
heat detectors may be subject to reduced sensitivity over time.
For this reason, the rate-of-rise feature of each detector
should be tested at least once per year by a qualified fire protection specialist. Heat detectors are designed to protect
property, not life.
IMPORTANT! Smoke detectors must be installed in the
same room as the control panel and in rooms used by the system for the connection of alarm transmission wiring, communications, signaling, and/or power. If detectors are not so
located, a developing fire may damage the alarm system, crippling its ability to report a fire.
Audible warning devices such as bells may not alert people
if these devices are located on the other side of closed or
partly open doors or are located on another floor of a building.
Any warning device may fail to alert people with a disability or
those who have recently consumed drugs, alcohol or medication. Please note that:
•
Strobes can, under certain circumstances, cause seizures
in people with conditions such as epilepsy.
•
Studies have shown that certain people, even when they
hear a fire alarm signal, do not respond or comprehend the
meaning of the signal. It is the property owner's responsibility to conduct fire drills and other training exercise to
make people aware of fire alarm signals and instruct them
on the proper reaction to alarm signals.
•
In rare instances, the sounding of a warning device can
cause temporary or permanent hearing loss.
A fire alarm system will not operate without any electrical
power. If AC power fails, the system will operate from standby
batteries only for a specified time and only if the batteries have
been properly maintained and replaced regularly.
Equipment used in the system may not be technically compatible with the control panel. It is essential to use only equipment listed for service with your control panel.
Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a
premise to a central monitoring station may be out of service
or temporarily disabled. For added protection against telephone line failure, backup radio transmission systems are recommended.
The most common cause of fire alarm malfunction is inadequate maintenance. To keep the entire fire alarm system in
excellent working order, ongoing maintenance is required per
the manufacturer's recommendations, and UL and NFPA standards. At a minimum, the requirements of Chapter 7 of NFPA
72-1999 shall be followed. Environments with large amounts
of dust, dirt or high air velocity require more frequent maintenance. A maintenance agreement should be arranged
through the local manufacturer's representative. Maintenance
should be scheduled monthly or as required by National and/
or local fire codes and should be performed by authorized professional fire alarm installers only. Adequate written records of
all inspections should be kept.

Installation Precautions
Adherence to the following will aid in problem-free installation with long-term reliability:
WARNING - Several different sources of power can be
connected to the fire alarm control panel. Disconnect all
sources of power before servicing. The control unit and associated equipment may be damaged by removing and/or inserting cards, modules, or interconnecting cables while the unit is
energized. Do not attempt to install, service, or operate this
unit until this manual is read and understood.
CAUTION - System Reacceptance Test after Software
Changes. To ensure proper system operation, this product
must be tested in accordance with NFPA 72-1999 Chapter 7
after any programming operation or change in site-specific
software. Reacceptance testing is required after any change,
addition or deletion of system components, or after any modification, repair or adjustment to system hardware or wiring.
All components, circuits, system operations, or software functions known to be affected by a change must be 100% tested.
In addition, to ensure that other operations are not inadvertently affected, at least 10% of initiating devices that are not
directly affected by the change, up to a maximum of 50
devices, must also be tested and proper system operation verified.
This system meets NFPA requirements for operation at 0°C
to 49°C (32°F to 120°F) and at a relative humidity (noncondensing) of 85% at 30°C (86°F) per NFPA, and 93% ± 2% at
32°C ± 2°C (89.6°F ± 1.1°F) per ULC. However, the useful life
of the system's standby batteries and the electronic components may be adversely affected by extreme temperature
ranges and humidity. Therefore, it is recommended that this
system and all peripherals be installed in an environment with
a nominal room temperature of 15-27° C/60-80° F.
Verify that wire sizes are adequate for all initiating and indicating device loops. Most devices cannot tolerate more than a
10% I.R. drop from the specified device voltage.
Like all solid state electronic devices, this system may
operate erratically or can be damaged when subjected to lightning-induced transients. Although no system is completely
immune from lightning transients and interferences, proper
grounding will reduce susceptibility. Overhead or outside
aerial wiring is not recommended, due to an increased susceptibility to nearby lightning strikes. Consult with the Technical Services Department if any problems are anticipated or
encountered.
Disconnect AC power and batteries prior to removing or
inserting circuit boards. Failure to do so can damage circuits.
Remove all electronic assemblies prior to any drilling, filing,
reaming, or punching of the enclosure. When possible, make
all cable entries from the sides or rear. Before making modifications, verify that they will not interfere with battery, transformer, and printed circuit board location.
Do not tighten screw terminals more than 9 in-lbs.
Over-tightening may damage threads, resulting in reduced terminal contact pressure and difficulty with screw terminal
removal.
Though designed to last many years, system components
can fail at any time. This system contains static-sensitive
components. Always ground yourself with a proper wrist strap
before handling any circuits so that static charges are
removed from the body. Use static-suppressive packaging to
protect electronic assemblies removed from the unit.
Follow the instructions in the installation, operating, and programming manuals. These instructions must be followed to
avoid damage to the control panel and associated equipment.
FACP operation and reliability depend upon proper installation
by authorized personnel.

Pre-Alarm Warning Mode of Operation
3. Operation of the Control Panel
Pre-Alarm Warning Mode of Operation
How the Control Panel Indicates a Pre-Alarm Warning
The control panel activates a Pre-Alarm Warning if a detector exceeds the programmed Pre-Alarm Alert
or Action level. When a detector activates a Pre-Alarm, the control panel does the following:
•
•
•
•
•
Pulses the panel sounder
Flashes the PRE-ALARM LED
Activates the Pre-Alarm zone (F9)
Sends a Pre-Alarm message to the LCD display, History buffer and installed printers, terminal
mode LCD-80s, and CRT-2s
Displays a PREALARM status banner, the Type Code of the detector, and the Pre-Alarm level
(Alert or Action) on the LCD display, along with information specific to the device as shown
in Figure 13.
How to Respond to a Pre-Alarm Warning
Pre-Alarm Alert and Action Levels
The Pre-Alarm function is a programmable option which determines the system’s response to real-time
detector sensing values above the programmed setting. Use the Pre-Alarm function if you want to get an
early warning of incipient or potential fire conditions. The Pre-Alarm function provides one of two
levels of Pre-Alarm as follows:
Note: For detailed information on Pre-Alarm applications, refer to the NFS-640 Programming Manual.
•
•
Alert – a non-latching condition that causes a Pre-Alarm when a detector reaches the
programmed Pre-Alarm level.
Action – a latching condition that causes a Pre-Alarm when a detector reaches the programmed
Pre-Alarm level.
Responding to a Pre-Alarm Warning
The Pre-Alarm screen display is the same for both alert and action conditions. Following is a sample
screen for a Pre-Alarm message.

Figure 13 Sample of an Alert Pre-Alarm Message
An Alert Pre-Alarm automatically restores to normal when the detector sensitivity, programmable to
one of nine settings, drops below the programmed Alert level. Zone F09 automatically clears when no
Pre-Alarm conditions exist.
An Action Pre-Alarm latches until you reset the system - even if the detector sensitivity drops below the
Action level. Zone F09 activates - but Zone Z00 (general alarm) and the trouble and alarm relays do not
activate. The fifth zone programmed, not the first four, in the detector’s CBE activates. A subsequent
alarm condition for this detector clears the Action indication from the LCD display.
Interpreting Pre-Alarm Type Codes
The Type Code that displays in the Pre-Alarm warning indicates the function of the point that initiates
the Pre-Alarm warning. Refer to the Detectors section of Table 4 for the Type Codes that can appear in
a Pre-Alarm warning, and for descriptions of those Type Codes.

Disabled Points Mode of Operation
Disabled Points Mode of Operation
The control panel indicates disabled points by displaying a screen for each disabled detector, monitor
module, control/relay module, and Panel Circuit. Disabled points do not cause an alarm or any
Control-by-Event activity. If more than one point is disabled, the control panel automatically displays
each point in the sequence in which the point was disabled.
!
CAUTION: Disabling a zone disables all input and output devices associated with the zone.
When one or more points are disabled, the control panel does the following:

How the Control Panel Indicates an Active Non-Fire Point
Non-Fire point operation does not affect control panel operation, nor does it display a message at the
panel LCD. Activation of a Non-Fire point activates CBE—but does not cause any indication on the
control panel. For example, you can program a Non-Fire point to turn lights in a zone to a lower setting
when activated. In this case, when the point activates the control panel activates the point’s CBE to turn
the lights down without any audio or visual indication on the control panel.

Waterflow Circuit Operation
If a monitor module programmed with a WATERFLOW Type Code initiates a fire alarm, the control panel
disables the SIGNAL SILENCE key and the Auto Silence Timer. Refer to the NFS-640 Installation Manual
for information on Waterflow circuits.
Style 6 and Style 7 Operation
Style 6 and Style 7 are supervised methods of communicating with addressable devices. If the control
panel detects a trouble (open or short), it will drive both ends of the loop, maintaining communication in
an unsupervised method. The latching trouble will display on the panel as a Style 6 trouble until you
correct the condition and press reset. Style 7 configuration of the SLC requires the use of ISO-X

How to View Read Status for Event and Alarm History
Overview
The control panel maintains a History buffer of the last 800 events, each with a time and date stamp.
History events include the following:
•
•
All alarms, troubles and operator actions, such as: Acknowledge, System Reset, Signal
Silence, Drill, and Walk Test.
Programming entries (Program Change and Status Change, but not Read Status), along with a
number (0-9) indicating the programming submenu (for example, 0=Clear). For an example,
see Figure 34.
You can view events from the History buffer in two forms: by displaying all events (option 2, HIST=2) or
by displaying alarm events only (option 4, ALARM HIST=4).
Note: The History buffer contains 800 events total, including the alarm events that display for Alarm history. The
control panel generates Alarm history from the alarm events that exist in the 800-event History buffer.

How Time Control and Holiday Functions Work
Time and Holiday activation occurs automatically and does not require operator intervention. All
outputs with a CBE list containing F5 or F6 activate within the times specified for the days of the week
listed in F5 or F6. All smoke detectors with a CBE list containing F5 or F6 switch to their lowest
sensitivity (AL:9) within the times specified for the days of the week listed in ZF5 or ZF6. Refer to
“Appendix C: AWACS Applications” in the NFS-640 Programming Manual for details on setting
detector sensitivity.
Time Control is active for all days of the week listed in F5 or F6. Holidays listed in F7 are excluded
unless you list Holidays (H) in the day-of-week selection of F5 and F6 (shown in Figure 45). Enter the
time functions in a 24-hour format with the OFF time later than the ON time. After changing
programming using Time Control, always reset the control panel.
Note: You can turn a NON FIRE control point on and off, by listing zone F5 or F6 in the CBE list of a control/relay
module.
You can use Time Control zones F5 and F6 to program non-fire applications such as turning lights on
and off, setting a thermostat, and so on. For example, you can program zones F5 and F6 to activate
outputs at one time of day and deactivate outputs at later time, on specified days of a week. Table 16
contains descriptions of additional Time Control applications:

Appendix B: Intelligent Detector Functions
Note: For instructions on selecting Intelligent Detector Functions, refer to the NFS-640 Programming Manual.
Descriptions for Intelligent Detector Functions
Function
Description
Analog Display
The control panel reads and displays analog information from the
318 analog detectors (159 per SLC). The display shows the sensed
air at the detector as a percentage of the alarm threshold for each
detector.
Sensitivity Adjust
Nine selections for manually setting intelligent detector alarm
levels within the UL range. If using Ionization detectors in duct
applications, set Sensitivity Adjust to Level 1.
Note: Refer to the NFS-640 Programming Manual for detector
sensitivity information.
Day/Night Sensitivity
Operation
You can program the system to automatically force smoke detectors
to minimum sensitivity during the day. Refer to “Time, Date, and
Holiday Functions” on page 59.
Maintenance Alert
When compensation reaches the limit of the amount of drift
compensation that can be safely applied, the control panel reports a
trouble condition, according to National Fire Alarm Code
standards. This condition also activates if the detector remains at
very high or very low measured air levels for an extended time.
Automatic Test
Operation
The control panel performs an automatic test of each detector every
256 minutes. Failure to meet the test limits causes an Auto Test Fail
trouble.
Type Code
Supervision
The control panel monitors hardware device Type Codes for each
installed device at regular intervals (an interval can take up to 40
minutes for a full capacity system). If a mismatch of type compared
to the program occurs, the control panel generates a point trouble
labeled Invalid Type.
LED Control
Operation
A global program selection to prevent detector LEDs from blinking
as a result of polling during normal operation. A typical application
is a sleeping area where a blinking light can distract people. As a
standard function, independent of this programming selection, the
control panel allows all LEDs to turn on in alarm.
Alarm Verification
Timer and Verification
Counter Operation
The control panel performs alarm verification on programmed
intelligent smoke detectors. The Alarm Verification Timer is a
global program selection of 0–60 seconds (ULC installations can
not exceed 30 seconds). Each detector includes a Verification
Counter, which displays the number of times that a detector entered
verification but did not time-out to alarm. The Verification Counter
increments to 99 and holds.
