INTRODUCTION
Section 1 - Component overview.
ED722 and ED726 Loop Driver Module (ED816A Variation)
The ED722 and ED726 loop driver can provide 300mA of continuous loop current, driving up to
126 devices using Apollo S90, XP95 or Discovery protocol.
Each loop is fully isolated electrically from the input power supply, giving continued operation
in the event of earth faults on the dc input, greatly increasing immunity to electrical noise and
eliminating false alarms due to crosstalk.
The ED722 and ED726 are similar but the ED726 can also accept up to 10 EDL addressable
gas detection interface modules. Both models are available with front panels, as used in the
ED700A 8 Loop Control Panel, or without front panels for use in the ED816A. For the full
failsafe features to be available on the ED816A the ED722 / ED726 front panel lamps and
switches are relocated on the ED816A I/O motherboard.

FAIL SAFE OPERATION
Each module within the system (ED722/6 loop modules, ED816A Display module and ED816
I/O module) communicate with each other using an industry standard I2C bus. In the event of
a communications failure, or a fault developing on any of the modules, creating a
communications failure, the loop cards continue to operate autonomously.
The loop modules are directly connected to the following normally energised relays mounted
on the IO module. These should be used for all safety critical operations as they are operated
in the fail safe mode.
HWFD = normally open contact closing to 470 ohms in the alarm condition.
PRE = Pre-alarm.
IMM = Immediate Fire or Gas Alarm.
DEL = Operates 2 minutes after an alarm if mute or reset has not been pressed.
FLT = Fault.
Sounder 1 is directly connected to the alarm relay.
DISCOVERY CONVENTIONAL MODE (Hardware Fire Detection HWFD)
Not to be confused with conventional fire zones, conventional mode, built into the Discovery
detectors and Electronic Devices gas detector interface, provides continued alarm detection in
the event of limited circuit failure. E.g. Microprocessor failure on the loop module resulting in
panel to detector communications failure. Conventional mode becomes operational
approximately 2 minutes after loop to detector communications has failed. Electronic Devices
recommend using Discovery detectors to take advantage of this feature.
PUSH BUTTON OPERATION
If pressed under normal operating conditions the three push buttons operate as lamp test
buttons only. However in the event of a communications error or fault on the Addressable
display module, the loop cards continue to operate autonomously and the push buttons will
function as labelled. See page 29 for details.

Section 2 - System design guidelines
LOOP LENGTHS
The maximum permitted loop length can be determined using Apollo’s loop calculator, available free from EDL.
Remember to include the vertical distances when looking at plan drawings and also ensure cable capacitance is
within the panels specification.
LOOP LOADING - Maximum number of addresses
The maximum number of addresses is 126 per loop. System designers should avoid fully loading loops. The
optimum number of addresses per loop is approximately 90 to 100, this ensures the system is operating well
within its capacity and allows the customer flexibility in the future to add additional devices.
LOOP LOADING - Short circuit isolators
Short circuit isolators should be fitted with no more than 20 detectors between isolators. No more than 10
detectors (or equivalent load) between the panel and the first isolator and no more than 10 detectors (or
equivalent load) between the panel and last isolator. Ideally the first and last items fitted to a loop should be
isolators.
Isolators should always be fitted at zone boundaries and it is good practice to reduce the number of times loop
wiring enters and leaves the same zone. A single fault on a loop should not remove protection from an area
greater than a single zone.
Two simultaneous faults on a loop should not remove protection from an area greater than 10,000 sq m . This
requirement limits the total floor area covered by one loop to 10,000 sq m regardless of the number of
detectors.
Isolators are available as standalone or built in to detector bases and integrated in to Apollo interface modules .
The additional cost of the built in isolators is small compared to the non isolated bases or interface units
therefore as many isolators should be fitted as possible.
Short circuit isolators do not use up addresses and there is no limit to the number of isolators fitted.
Each loop card is fitted with two onboard short circuit isolators, one for loop out and one for loop return,
protecting the wiring between the panel and first and last isolator.
LOOP CABLE SELECTION
The cable must be a suitable type e.g. FireTuf, FP200 or equivalent and must have the following characteristics:
1.
The cable must be 2 core with screen + drain core.
2.
Loop out and loop in should never be run within the same cable.
3.
Multicore cable should never be used.
LOOP CABLE RESISTANCE
The maximum permissible resistance per core is 12.8 Ohms at maximum load (300mA). Loops with lower
loads can accept higher cable resistance, however it is good practice to consider the maximum load at the
design stage thus allowing for future expansion.

System design guidelines - continued
LOOP CABLE CAPACITANCE
Cable capacitance is an important consideration when choosing loop cable.
The maximum permissible capacitance is 0.5uF (500nF) between loop + and loop -.
As each loop is electrically isolated therefore high loop to screen capacitance does not normally cause a
problem and should not be the limiting factor for loop lengths.

SCREEN CONTINUITY
It is vital, for correct and trouble free operation, that the screen is continuous along the full loop length. Ensure
that the screen connection is continued at each loop device. The screen should be earthed at one end only, via
the control panel, and never at loop devices.
All cables entering the control unit should be screened and ferrite sleeves, supplied with the control unit, must
be used. All screens should be terminated at the control panel only thereby avoiding earth loops.
See page 9 for connection diagram.
Note the repeater data cable screens must NOT be connected to the enclosure (earth) and instead connected
to the terminals marked SCRN inside the control unit and repeater units.
REPEATER CABLE SELECTION
The repeater communicates with the control panel using the industry standard RS485 full duplex.
The data cable used should be 2 conductor (twisted) 124 Ohm twinixial 25 AWG (0.16 sq mm) with foil screen
and drain wire. E.g. Beldon 9271 006 (BLULT).
Repeaters can be powered locally to avoid running additional power cables or they can be powered from the
control unit using the fused output terminals. Up to 8 repeaters can be connected to each system, however if
powered from the control panel the repeater current consumption should be included in power supply and
battery calculations.
Each repeater can operate from 18 - 30Vdc with a worst case current consumption of 350mA.
See page 10 for connection diagram.
POWER SUPPLY
The control unit requires a nominal 24V dc supply and must always have batteries connected. Normally the AC
mains is connected to the AC mains input terminals and the AC mains output terminals are wired to the external
power supply. The power supplies DC output is connected to the systems main DC input terminals.
Auxiliary DC input terminals are provided as an additional option. The DC input and Auxiliary (if used) must be
suitably rated to charge the internal batteries.
All power supply cables must be screened and ferrite rings used and cables should not be routed near EMC
generating equipment, radio transmitters, paging systems etc., See page 9.

Section 3 - Control unit installation
GENERAL
WARNING: Please read this section completely before commencing installation.
The panel must be located in a clean, dry position at least 2 metres away from any radio transmitting equipment
e.g Pager systems.
The Mains supply should be installed in accordance with the current edition of the IEE wiring regulations.
Connection to the mains supply must be via an isolating protective device (e.g. an isolating fuse) reserved
solely for the fire alarm system. It should be insured that all isolating switches, circuit breakers etc., connected
to the system should be labelled “FIRE ALARM DO NOT SWITCH OFF”.
Correct earthing is vital for trouble free operation. The earth connection should be as short as possible, using
4mm square conductors, connected directly to a good quality earth. The earth should not be routed via radio
transmitting devices or other electrical equipment.
All cables entering the control unit should be screened and ferrite sleeves, supplied with the control unit, should
be used. All screens should be terminated at the cable gland. Only metal, EMC shielding cable glands should
be used. Screens should be continuous and have continuity along the entire length of the cable. Only connect
the screen to earth at one end thus avoiding earth loops. All unscreened conductors should be kept as short as
possible and the ferrite ring should be as close to the cable gland as possible. Wrap each conductor around the
ferrite at least twice. Any communication faults experienced are likely to be caused by poor EMC shielding
practices. Repeater cable screens should never be connected to earth, always use the terminals provided.

NOTE
When changing any plug-in cards or loop devices, observe anti-static precautions. Ensure that all power is
removed and the system is switched off. Failure to do so may result in damage to the cards or panel.
The panel MUST be switched off before removing or replacing any card or module. Failure to observe this may
cause damage to the printed circuit boards.
Each loop card has an ID, set via the dip switches mounted on each loop card. No two loop card should have
the same ID.
FireConfig.exe must be used for initial system setup.

1. Connect detector earth connection to cable screen
2. Always fit call points at the beginning of a zone or on a separate zone. Removal of detectors fitted between
the control unit and call points would disable the call points.
3. Never use looped wire for connection into and out from the same terminal, always break wire.
Any single wire coming loose from a terminal should open circuit the end of line resistor to enable a fault
to be indicated.

SOUNDER WIRING
The fault monitored sounder circuits can be used to operate several sounders and beacons up to a
maximum load of 1A. A 4K7 Ohm end of line resistor should be fitted across the last device to facilitate
fault monitoring. Note: SNDR1 is fail safe and should always be used first, with sounders / beacons in
a manned location.

REPEATER WIRING
Up to eight repeaters can be connected to each system. The last repeater on the line must be a type A.
Type A and B repeaters differ only in that type A repeaters have terminating resistors, R2 and R39,
fitted.
Repeaters can be powered by a local, battery backed, 24Vdc supply or driven off the fused output
terminals provided in the ED816A. Each repeater draws a maximum of 350mA.
The data cable used should be 2 conductor (twisted) 124 Ohm twinixial 25 AWG (0.16 sq mm) with foil
screen and drain wire. E.g. Beldon 9271 006 (BLULT).
With full duplex wiring each repeater has exactly the same functionality as the main control panel, giving the
designer the option of using the repeater as the main interface. This allows the control panel to be situated in a
more central location.
It is possible to operate repeaters without their full functionality by omitting the repeater transmit wiring; i.e.
Wiring between Z, Y (repeater) and A, B (control panel).Thus the repeater can only receive information, no
information can be transmitted to the control panel including setup information etc.. Electronic Devices Limited
do not recommend this method because the EVAC button on the repeater will not function. However a solution
is to have a call point located next to the repeater set to “no zone”. Call points set to no zone automatically
operate the evacuate command when operated. It is for this reason all repeaters installed should be checked
they both transmit data as well as receive it from the control panel.

Repeat steps 2 - 6 until all loops are configured.
9.
Click “Display Names” and choose the text that appears in the top right hand side of the display for both
main panel and repeaters.
10.
Click “Power Supplies” and check the appropriate boxes. If not checked the system will not give fault
warnings for that particular supply.
11.
Click “Conventional Zones”, if used, and choose whether the zone is to be used for Hazardous or safe
Areas. If “Intrinsically Safe Devices” are chosen the zone wiring must be connected through an
Electronic Devices zener barrier type ZBD7+ located in the Safe Area. See connection diagram and
also ensure ATEX regulations are met fully.
12.
Click “Save” to save the configuration to you computers hard drive or data stick.
13.

changing. This will take several minutes and will CLEAR ALL information held in memory.
16.
Click “Erase History” to clear the history stored in the systems memory.
17.
Click “Download” to send the data in to the system. This can take several minutes. Once complete turn
the system off for one or two seconds before turning back on. Monitor the system closely for the next
several minutes, checking for any faults to be reported. Most faults will be reported within 2 minutes,
however internal memory and program errors can take up to 1 hour to be reported.
If downloading is interrupted (power failure, pc failure etc.) turn off the systems power and then after a
few seconds, re-power the system and, when ready, start the download again.
Section 5 - Cause and Effect Matrix
The Cause and Effect matrix does not have to be used for simple applications. However for the needs of larger
and more complicated systems a powerful cause and effect matrix is provided.
IMPORTANT NOTE
It is important to note that in the event of panel failure or communications failure the cause and effect matrix will
not function. SNDR1 is the dedicated fire/gas alarm which is operated in failsafe mode and also via the
HardWare Fire Detection circuit. The HWFD circuit will continue to give alarms from Discovery detectors and
EDL gas detectors in the event of communication failure between panel and loop devices, provided the loop
voltage is still correct. Therefore SNDR1 should be the first choice and should always be used with at least
one sounder located in a manned area. See page 30.
MAXIMUM NUMBER OF ENTRIES
No more than 50 cause and effects should be used. To help reduce the number of cause and effects the
following methods should be used:
1.
All sounders, beacons, sounder control units etc., that are to operate from the main fire/gas Alarm
should have the “always operate in the event of alarm” check box ticked on the loop configuration page.
If this is done no cause and effect entries are necessary.
2.
All I/O controllers and Switch monitor I/O modules with inputs only being used to operate the main
fire/gas Alarm, should have the appropriate “alarm on bit 0,1 or 2” boxes checked on the loop
configuration page. If this is done no cause and effect entries are necessary.
3.
If large numbers of loop powered sounders / beacons are to operate from any cause other than the
main fire/gas alarm (e.g. Pre-alarm), group addressing and / or master - slave sounders / beacons
should be used so that only minimal cause and effect entries are required.

Cause and Effect Matrix - continued
Adding Cause and Effects entries
1.
Click “Cause and Effect” and then “add Entry”.
2.
Choose a name for the entry.
3.
Select the “input type”.
“Device” is any detector, input module, zone
monitor or switch monitor on any loop.
“Zone” is any of the 32 zones and also either of the
2 built in conventional zones.
“Loop” is any of the loops attached to the system
only loop 1 and 2 apply for the ED816A.
4.
Select “Cause”. Cause can be pre-alarm, alarm
or fault.
If Zone was chosen for input type an extra cause
choice becomes available. “Coincidence”
detection is available between any 2 zones.
In the event of the 2 zones chosen both being in
the alarm condition then the effect will be actioned.
If Device was chosen for input type and the device is an I/O module, 2 extra cause choices become
available. I/O unit Latching and I/O unit Non-Latching.

When choosing “I/O unit Latching” the effect will remain until RESET has been pressed, any
effect can be chosen from the drop down box.
When Choosing “I/O unit Non-Latching” the effect will remain for only as long as the input is set. Only
Loop Devices can be chosen in the “Effect” drop down box. When operating a loop output device only
one non-latching cause can be assigned to it.
5.
Select Output type in the “effect” dialogue box, which can be Aux Relay, Sounder, Loop Device or
Delayed Output.
-15ED816A Addressable Fire and gas detection Installation manual 8-9-08 Rev-a
Cause and Effect Matrix - continued
Aux Relay
There are 3 Auxiliary relays located on the ED816A Input / Output module, each with 2 sets of voltage free
contacts. (Note the ED816A has 1 set of voltage free contacts per aux relay.)
Sounders
There are 3 monitored sounders on the ED816A Input / Output module. SNDR1 is the dedicated fire/gas alarm
which is operated in failsafe mode and also via the HardWare Fire Detection circuit. The HWFD circuit will
continue to give alarms, from Discovery detectors and EDL gas detectors, in the event of communication failure
between panel and loop devices, provided the loop voltage is still correct. Therefore SNDR1 should be the first
choice and should always be used with at least one sounder located in a manned area.
Sounders 2 and 3 are configurable via FireConfig.
Loop Device
When choosing loop device in the “effect” dialogue box it is possible to select any addressable device.
However care should be taken to only select suitable devices e.g. Sounders, beacons and output
modules. The following guidelines should be observed:
Sounders and beacons
When choosing loop powered sounders / beacons as
output devices the set tone drop down box appears.
Allowing the commissioning engineer to choose which
output bits are set and hence the tone to be used.
Refer to the Apollo data sheets for individual sounder /
beacon types, below are the most common examples:

Apollo Input Output modules and Output modules
When choosing Input / Output and Output modules as
output devices the output bit drop down box appears,
allowing the commissioning engineer to choose which
output bits are set and hence the Relay to be switched.
Please note output bits are referred to as output 1,2 and 3

Delayed Output
When choosing delayed output in the “effect”
drop down box it is possible to setup up to 8
delayed effects. The 8 delayed effects can be
called as many times as required by different
cause and effect entries, remembering 50
entries is the maximum number of cause and
effects allowed.
The “configure delayed outputs” button is at
the bottom of the main cause and effects
page and brings up the dialogue box shown.
Delays can be set anywhere between 1 and
600 seconds.
It is important to ensure all fire / gas
detection standards are not infringed when
adding delays. E.g. EN54-2 stipulates what
can and cannot be delayed when outputs are
connected to “fire alarm routing equipment”.
It is possible to override delays at any stage during normal operation by choosing item 6 (delayed outputs) from
the main system menu. It should also be remembered that, from within the cause and effect matrix, a dedicated
and suitably labelled call point could be assigned the same 8 outputs but without delays thereby giving an easy
method to override the delays. Additionally pressing the “EVAC” button or any call point not assigned a zone
will operate the evacuate command and all loop powered sounders, beacons, sounders circuits and Immediate
Alarm, Pre-Alarm and Delayed output relays will operate.
-17ED816A Addressable Fire and gas detection Installation manual 8-9-08 Rev-a
Section 6 - Device types and configuration
The ED722 and ED726 Loop drivers communicate with loop devices using Apollo Fire Detectors Ltd., protocol
S90, XP95 and Discovery.
For most devices it is obvious what selection to
make when adding to FireConfig. However it
may not be immediately obvious for some devices
which is why the device type code is shown in
brackets. e.g. Discovery optical smoke detectors
are type code 160. All Apollo devices have a type
code telling the control panel what the device is and
how it operates. If you cannot find a
particular device in FireConfig contact EDL
or Apollo and obtain the device code.
Additional drop down boxes appear when
selecting some devices and fall in to four
Categories. Input Output units, Sounder / Beacons,
Discovery detectors and Gas Detection.
XP95(A) North American Models
XP95(A) the protocol used in North America, is also supported, allowing Apollo devices to be purchased directly
from the USA.
Apollo Input Output modules / units
When adding Input Output units three check boxes
will appear. “Alarm on bit 0,1 or 2”. Consult the
data sheet and choose which bits, if any, you
require to operate the main Fire / Gas alarm. Cause
and effect entries are not required if these boxes
are ticked.
Check the “never generate alarm” box if the main
Fire / Gas alarm is not required and cause and
effect entries are to be used instead.
By adding suitable cause and effect entries it is
possible for an input module (e.g. Monitoring an
Emergency Exit switch) to operate an output module on any loop silently without any front panel indication,
buzzers etc., operating.
Loop powered Sounder and Beacons
When adding Sounders and Beacons the “Always operate sounder in event of alarm” check box appears.
Always check this box for operation from the main Fire / Gas alarm and no cause and effect entries will be
required. If left unchecked the device will only operate if a suitable cause and effect entry has been made.
Discovery Detectors
All Discovery detectors have 5 modes of operation to choose from, changing sensitivity, time to respond and for
the multi-sensor whether it reacts to heat or smoke only or both.
-18ED816A Addressable Fire and gas detection Installation manual 8-9-08 Rev-a
Device types and configuration - continued
Gas Detection
When adding EDL Gas Detection three dialogue
boxes will appear. Sensor range, Pre-Alarm limit
and Alarm limit. When choosing the sensor range
ensure the sensor is capable of operating correctly
within that range. Pre-Alarm and Alarm limits are
the value that the gas sensor has to reach before
the alarm is given. Both alarm and pre-alarm can
be set between 10% and 80% of the sensors range
(full scale value) in 10% steps.
Group Addressed Sounders and Beacons
Some Apollo Sounders and Beacons are available with a second set of dip switches used for group
addressing., the address must be in the range of 112 - 126. This feature is useful when operating several
sounders from a single cause and effect or when adding to an existing system without the need to connect to a
PC. Group addressing should be setup as follows:
1. Add a Sounder or Beacon with its individual address in the range 112 - 126 using FireConfig
setup software. Ensure this device is NOT group address enabled by setting the group address dip
switches to “0000”.
2. Add a cause and effect entry to operate the device and / or tick the “always operate in the event of
alarm” check box.
3. All additional Sounders / Beacons to be included in this group should be added with their individual
addresses in the range 1 - 126 and the group address dip switch should be set to the address
chosen in 1 above. Additional sounders / beacons can be added either by using the FireConfig software
or using the “search for new devices” function from the main panel or any repeater.
4. Group addressing can only operate on the same loop.
5. Please see Apollo data sheets for more information.
Master / Slave Sounders and Beacons
Some Apollo Sounders and Beacons are available with an additional dip switch for selecting “Master” or “Slave”
mode. The feature is has similar benefits to using group addressing but should not be confused with group
addressing as the setup is different. Master / Slave sounders should be setup as follows:
1. Add a Sounder or Beacon with its individual address in the range 1 - 126 using FireConfig
setup software. Ensure this device is set as “master” using the appropriate dip switch.
2. Add a cause and effect entry to operate the device and / or tick the “always operate in the event of
alarm” check box.
3. Additional Sounders or Beacons can be added using the same individual address as above but the
units should all be set as “Slave” on the appropriate dip switch.
4. Group addressing can only operate on the same loop.
5. Please see Apollo data sheets for more information.

Section 7 - Operating Instructions - quick guide
Please read the full operating instructions before starting, however below is a quick overview of the most
commonly used functions.
Silencing sounders, beacons and internal buzzers (MUTE)
During an alarm or fault condition all sounders, beacons and internal buzzers can be turned off by pressing the
“MUTE” button. You will be asked to enter a password which is factory set at “AAAAAA”. As this is the default
password just pressing enter is sufficient. Once the password has been entered press the “MUTE” button once
more.
Pressing mute does not stop any customer configured delayed outputs from operating. If the right hand DEL
lamp under the panel / device status heading is illuminated one or more (maximum of 8) of the customer
configured delayed outputs are due to operate. Pressing the “RESET” button will stop the delayed outputs
from operating, however if the fire or gas alarm condition returns the count down for the delayed output will start
again. If the alarm cannot be rectified before the delayed output operates, once operated it can be turned off by
pressing the “MUTE” button.
Delayed outputs
If the right hand DEL lamp under the panel / device status heading is illuminated one or more (maximum of 8) of
the customer configured delayed outputs are due to operate. Pressing the “RESET” button will stop the
delayed outputs from operating, however if the fire or gas alarm condition returns the count down for the
delayed output will start again. If the alarm cannot be rectified quickly enough the delayed output, once
operated, can be turned off by pressing the “MUTE” button. One or all of the delay times can be reduced to
zero from menu item number 6 in the systems main menu. Use the +/- keys to toggle between “normal” and “no
delay”. Use the arrow keys to choose which delay to change or choose global to change all.
System Reset
After an alarm or fault condition has been rectified the system should be reset. Pressing the “RESET” button
will return the system to the normal state. You will be asked to enter a password which is factory set at
“AAAAAA”. As this is the default password just pressing enter is sufficient. Once the password has been
entered press the “RESET” button once more.
Evacuate
To operate all sounders, beacons, alarm relay and pre-alarm relay press the “EVAC” button. You will be asked
to enter a password which is factory set at “AAAAAA”. As this is the default password just pressing enter is
sufficient. Once the password has been entered press the “EVAC” button once more.

ACCESS LEVELS
The European standard EN54-2 requires access to the control equipment to be split in to 4 levels. The control
unit complies through the use of passwords. In order to meet these requirements the control unit door should
not be locked.

MAIN MENU > SYSTEM SETUP > WALK THROUGH TEST
The walk through test feature allows the commissioning Engineer to test each detector in turn either by loop or
zone without the alarms or any cause and effects operating. At the end of the test the user can scroll through a
list of all devices that responded and in the order they were tested. The walk through isolates all outputs of the
chosen zone or loop. The test must be ended by pressing menu or enter when prompted. If the test is
interrupted, due to an alarm, pre-alarm etc.., the user MUST return to the test menu and end the previously
started test at the same display as initially used to start the test. The walk through test is conducted as follows:
a.
b.
c.
d.
e.
Use the arrow keys and scroll down to “WALK THROUGH TEST” and press enter.
Using the +/- keys choose the loop to be tested or press the right arrow key to choose a zone to be
tested. Scroll down to “OK” and press “ENTER”. The “TEST” light should now be illuminated.
Test each detector in turn. Once the device has activated its alarm light will illuminate and you can move
on to the next device.
Once you have tested all devices ensure all devices are no longer in alarm / pre-alarm before pressing
enter. The control panel will indicate how many devices have been tested and display the details one at
a time. Scroll through tested devices using the up/down arrow keys. Once finished with the information
press menu to return to the previous screen. Before starting another test wait at least 1 minute. If
finished press menu again until the main screen is displayed.
Check that the “TEST” lamp on the Display AND the “ISOL” lamp on the Loop cards are not illuminated.
Turning the system off and then back on again will ensure no zones or loops are left isolated.
It is important to remember that the walk through test is a tool for the commissioning engineer to ensure all
devices are in correct locations and are the correct type. Walk through test does NOT test any output functions
and cause and effects, therefore it is vital separate tests are conducted testing every aspect of the cause and
effect matrix and output functions. Input / Output modules cannot be tested with the walk through test.
Smoke detectors only require a single, short burst of test smoke with the canister held at least 60cm away or,
preferably, use a test smoke dispenser. Over exposure to test smoke will coat the sensor and reduce working
life. It will require cleaning by a suitably trained person.
MAIN MENU > SYSTEM SETUP > SOUNDER BEACON TEST
The sounder / beacon test feature allows the commissioning Engineer to test each loop sounder, beacon or
sounder control module in turn. Each device can be operated for a set period of time adjustable from 30 to
240S. The sounder / beacon test is conducted as follows:
a.
b.
c.
d.
Use the arrow keys and scroll down to “WALK THROUGH TEST” and press “ENTER”.
Using the +/- keys choose the loop to be tested or press the right arrow key to choose a zone to be
tested. Scroll down and adjust the time as required. Scroll down to ”OK” and press “ENTER”.
Each sounder and beacon will be tested in order starting at the lowest address.
Move to each device location and ensure correct operation. Once all devices have been tested press
menu and start another test or press menu again until the main screen is displayed.
It is important to note that the sounder / beacon test will test every sounder and beacon on the loop / zone
regardless of whether the system has been configured to operate them. Therefore it is vital separate tests are
conducted testing every aspect of the cause and effect matrix ensuring all devices operate and with correct
tones etc..

CONV ZONE 1 and CONV ZONE 2
Both conventional zones are powered via a regulated 20VDC supply and should be approximately 18V in
normal condition. If the end of line resistor is removed this voltage will rise and the open circuit fault warning will
be given. A short circuit across the zone will see the voltage fall to almost 0V and the short circuit fault warning
given. In the alarm condition the conventional zone voltage will fall to approximately 10V and the alarm warning
given. There is a delay of approximately 6 seconds before a fault or alarm condition is signalled.

Section 9 - Fault messages
It is vital any faults be immediately checked and diagnosed by a qualified Engineer with experience of this
control panel.
IO to Loop cable fault
The control unit monitors the connection of all internal ribbon cables. The position of the IO to loop ribbon cable
depends upon the number of loop cards fitted. If the number of loop cards has changed from the originally
manufactured unit the ribbon cable will require moving to the correct location. Contact EDL for further
information on correctly locating the ribbon cable. Failure to correctly position the ribbon cable will mean a
dangerous loss of alarm/fault signals from some loop cards. It is important to note the control unit will only
check the location once, at switch on. Once reset the fault will not be reported again until the unit is switched off
and on again, even if it still exists. It will be recorded in history.
If after clearing the configuration, using FireConfig, the system is not immediately reconfigured this may be
because the system defaults to single loop setup. Therefore it is important the system is configured and the
correct number of loop cards entered.
Loop continuity
The “LOOP IN” terminals are constantly monitored by the control panel. If a short circuit or open circuit occurs
the panel will display the fault condition. The fault should be investigated as soon as possible because it is
likely some devices, or even all, are not able to respond and therefore not operate.
It is quite likely other fault warnings will be coupled with loop continuity e.g. No response from sensor.
No response from sensor.
This fault message will include the loop and device address and can occur for any addressed device on the
loop including sounders and beacons. This fault indicates an open or short circuit loop problem, device failure or
if the device has been removed.
Sensor internal fault.
This fault message will include the loop and device address and can occur for any addressed device on the
loop including sounders and beacons. The device has registered an internal fault and should be returned for
servicing.
For Apollo Discovery devices the analogue value should be checked by using the main menu > live values >

Apollo discovery optical smoke and multi-sensors use drift compensation to allow for dirty sensing elements.
Eventually the device cannot compensate any more and requires cleaning. The unit should be returned to
Apollo, EDL, or a distributor for servicing. It is important to realise that when testing with synthetic smoke only
small amounts of test smoke are required. It is very easy to coat the sensing element of the detector quickly
bringing it to the limit of compensation.
Short circuit fault and open circuit fault
Both conventional zones and all three sounder circuits wiring are monitored for both open and short circuit.
The fault should be investigated as soon as possible because it is likely that some, or even all, devices are not
able to respond and therefore not operate.
If during an alarm a sounder circuit fault is reported it should be assumed some or all audible and visual alarms
are not working and other methods of drawing attention to the dangers should be employed.
-28ED816A Addressable Fire and gas detection Installation manual 8-9-08 Rev-a
Operating instructions - fault messages continued
Supply voltage fault
All of the input power supplies to the control unit and also the dc fused output are monitored.
Battery open circuit - please replace / Battery too low to charge - please remove and charge
The battery is monitored for open circuit and under voltage. If the system has been running off batteries for
some time it is likely the battery voltage is very low. If when the AC mains is restored the battery voltage is
below approximately 22V the system will not charge the batteries, avoiding high charging currents and
excessive heat generated inside the control unit. The batteries should be removed and charged using a
dedicated battery charger.
No response from Loop Card or I/O Card - Comms error.
The Display, I/O module and Loop cards all communicate with each other. If one of these modules develops a
fault it is possible for this communication to fail. It is also possible for a communications error to occur if the
system is subjected to extreme RFI. In the event of a communications failure the Comms lamp will be
illuminated and the internal buzzers will operate.
The system automatically tries to recover from a comms error and pressing the reset button may restore
communications. If the system is unable to recover removing the power, including the batteries, may solve the
problem. If the communication fault was caused by a hardware failure it will not be possible to recover.
It is important to note that in the event of a communication fault system operation may be severely affected.
Cause and effects programmed may not operate and the display module may not be able to operate correctly.
However if the loop cards are still operational the system will still continue to operate in a limited manner. In the
event of a communications fault the push buttons “EVACUATE”, “MUTE” and “RESET”, located on the ED816A
I/O board, become operational (in normal operation they act only as lamp test buttons).

blown, the Alarm, Pre-Alarm, Fault and Delayed relays, the HWFD output and Sounder 1 will operate.
Test the detectors and other loop devices on each loop and conventional zones, if used, to establish
which devices are still operational.

Section 10 - Dual Redundancy
Discovery Conventional Mode and the Hardware Fire Detection Circuit (HWFD)
All addressable loop devices communicate with the Loop cards, ED722 and ED726, using the Apollo S90, XP95
or Discovery protocol. If this communication fails (due to microprocessor failure etc.) most panels would have a
total loss of Alarm detection, a very dangerous situation. The ED700A and ED816A have Dual Redundancy, a
secondary method of Fire and Gas Detection, built in to each ED722 and ED726 module when used with
Discovery detectors and EDL’s Gas Detector Interface Units. In the event of communications failure, between
the detectors and the control panel, the detectors can still respond to a Fire or Gas alarm but cannot give the
location details.
For communications to have failed some hardware / software failure must have occurred. It is likely many fault
messages will be displayed depending upon what has failed and an Engineer should be called immediately.
It is impossible to say how much of the system will still function without knowing the exact problem. The
minimum being that the Sounder 1 circuit and the alarm relays operate. If the ED722 / ED726 Loop card
microprocessor is still functioning correctly the following will occur in the event of a Fire or Gas Alarm:
the alarm lamps, buzzers and relays will operate and the following screen will be displayed:

Loop powered Sounders, Beacons or Output module attached to the faulty loop WILL NOT operate. If
internal system communications are functioning the EVAC command will also be given, operating the Immediate
Fire / Gas alarm relay, the pre-alarm relay and Sounders 2 and 3. All sounders connected to fully functional
loops will also operate.
Pressing “MUTE” will silence all sounders. Removing the detector in alarm and pressing the “RESET” buttons
on both the ED816A I/O (see page 29) and ED816A Display will reset the system. If the detector in alarm
cannot be removed ensure it is clear of smoke, heat etc. and then the ED816A should be turned off for a few
seconds and then turned on.
If Sounder 1 does not silence and the Immediate alarm relay, delayed alarm relay, pre-alarm relay and the fault
relays do not return to the normal state this indicates either loop card removal, loop card microprocessor failure
or I/O module failure.
