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 are located throughout a
protected premise following the
recommendations of the National Fire Protection
Association Standard 72 (NFPA 72),
manufacturer's recommendations, State and local
codes, and the recommendations contained in
the Guides for Proper Use of System Smoke
Detectors, which are made available at no charge
to all installing dealers. These documents can be
found at
http://www.systemsensor.com/html/applicat.html.
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 first floor 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
photo electronic 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 nor may a given type
of detector 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.).
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 NFPA 72 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. 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
manuals are read and understood.
CAUTION - System Re-acceptance Test after
Software Changes: To ensure proper system
operation, this product must be tested in
accordance with NFPA 72 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 0-49ºC/32-120º F and at a relative
humidity 93% ± 2% RH (no condensing) at 32°C
± 2°C (90°F ± 3°F). 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 its peripherals be installed in an environment
with a normal room temperature of 15-27º C/6080º 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
interference, 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, or printed circuit board
location.
Do not tighten screw terminals more than 9 inlbs. Over tightening may damage threads,
resulting in reduced terminal contact pressure
and difficulty with screw terminal removal.
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.

1 Introduction
This chapter provides an overview of the PS-Tools (Programming Software Tools) application and
describes the profiles of the users.
Overview of PS-Tools
PS-Tools is a convenient and powerful tool which can be used for configuring the programming
data for the Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP) from a computer or a laptop.
You can configure the fire alarm system in three ways.
1.
Using PS-Tools
2.
Using the fire panel keypad
3.
Using PS2 Style Keyboard
Configuring through Fire Panel Keypad
Configuring through panel keypad involves making changes in several screens for a single control
using the panel keypad. This way of configuration is tedious.
Configuring through PS-Tools
You can configure the fire panel using PS-Tools, instead of using a panel keypad. This way is more
efficient because of the user-friendly screens in PS-Tools.
Configuring through PS2 Style Keyboard
You can configure the fire panel by connecting a PS2 Style Keyboard, instead of using the panel
keyboard.

ANN-AUDIO 25/50 ZS
The ANN-AUDIO 25/50 ZS All Call Zone series audio panel is used to play an audio message
when there is an alarm in one of the input zones. This audio panel connects to the FACP through
the ANN-BUS communication circuit.
You can select one of the five audio messages the audio panel plays, when an FACP input zone
goes into alarm. The message plays over the corresponding audio panel output circuit. The input
zones can be programmed as alarm type, supervisory type, process monitor type, or AC Loss
Monitor.
Note
Ensure the input zone type is not Ack, Sil, Reset, or PAS Bypass switches.
Example: If FACP input zone 3 goes into alarm, the programmed message plays over the
ANN-AUDIO 25/50 ZS output circuit 3. If two or more input zones are active at the same time, the
highest priority message plays.
The connection between the fire panel and the ANN-AUDIO 25/50 ZS audio panel is accomplished
by a pair of communication wires connected between the A/B terminals on TB3 of the FACP and
TB1 terminals 2 & 3 of the ACC-ZPMK module on the ANN-AUDIO 25/50 ZS.

Coding Selection
The Coding feature allows you to specify the type of output the main circuit board NAC generates,
when activated. The various coding selections are:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Steady - a continuous output with no coding
March Time - 120 ppm (pulse-per-minute) output
California - 10 seconds on and 5 seconds off
Temporal - ½ second on, ½ second off, ½ second on, ½ second off, ½ second on, 1½ second
off
Two Stage 3 Minutes or 5 Minutes - For more information about Two Stage Operation, see
Two Stage Operation
Synchronized output for System Sensor, Wheelock, Gentex, Faraday or Amseco. For more
information about Synchronized NAC Operation, see Synchronized NAC Operation.
Two Stage Operation
Two Stage operation consists of the following:
•
•
1st stage output - 20 ppm (pulse-per-minute) coding
2nd stage output - Temporal coding
If Two Stage operation is programmed as the Coding option, the following sequence of events
occurs during an alarm:
78
1.
The on-board NACs are activated with a 1st stage output on activation of any alarm point.
2.
If, after the programmed time of 3 or 5 minutes, the Acknowledge switch is not pressed, all
NACs presently in 1st stage activation go to the 2nd stage activation.
3.
If an Acknowledge switch is pressed, the NACs currently in 1st stage activation remain in 1st
stage. Pressing the Acknowledge switch does not affect NACs already in 2nd stage
activation.
5/10 Zone Panel
PS-Tools 07/2010
PS-Tools User Guide
4.
If another alarm point is activated and the countdown timer is counting, the alarm point has
no effect on the NACs.
5.
If another alarm point is activated and the countdown timer has stopped counting due to the
Acknowledge switch being pressed, the countdown timer restarts and the NACs respond as
outlined in step 1. NACs already in 2nd stage activation are not affected.
Synchronized NAC Operation
Synchronization is a panel feature that controls the activation of notification appliances in such a
way that all devices turn on and off at exactly the same time. This is particularly critical when
activating strobes which must be synchronized to avoid random activation and a potential hazard
or confusion. The FACP can be programmed to operate with a variety of manufacturer’s devices.
