FireFinderTM Operators Manual
6.7 FireFinderTM Description
The following descriptions do not relate to specific cabinet sizes, as the size of each cabinet will vary
dependant upon the amount of hardware fitted.
The heart of the FireFinderTM consists of two boards that combine to form a controller. These boards are
the Main Board (API–674) and the CPU board (API–675). When combined with a front panel board (API–
690) this forms the basis for a FireFinderTM panel. A single FireFinderTM controller without an expansion
board has the capacity to interface to (4) FireFinderTM Slave CPU’s (API-669) modules. Slave CPU’s may
interface to either 16 Zone Conventional Boards, Apollo Loop Termination Boards or Input/Output
Modules. It also communicates with the Brigade interface Card (API-673).
The Main Board (API-674) mounts the CPU Board (API-675) and up to three FireFinderTM Slave CPU’s.
The first slave CPU is permanently mounted on the Main Board (API-674). (See fig 4 and attached block
diagrams). The FireFinderTM Slave CPU’s have the same software installed and their operation type is
determined by the interface board into which it connects.
If the system is to be expanded above four modules an Expansion Board (API-688) is used. This
expansion board contains FireFinderTM Slave CPU No. 5 and three expansion sockets for three more
FireFinderTM Slave CPU’s. This configuration allows for the maximum number of modules (8) which one
controller can accommodate. If a system is required to expand beyond eight modules then either local
networking using other controllers (up to a total of four within the one cabinet) may be fitted or external
networking must be used.
The FireFinderTM also provides an internal serial bus. This serial bus provides interfacing to the following
modules. 32 zone mimic board (API-700), Pump indicator board (API-717), Valve indicator board (API716) and Serial Relay Board (API-732).
A fan control module (FCM) (159-0020) is also available. This operates in conjunction with a slave CPU
(159-0046) module. Up to 10 FCM’s may be connected to one slave CPU.
Where a system exceeds the capability of one FireFinderTM then other FireFinderTM panels can be
networked together to provide an expanded system containing multiple modules. It can be configured
into different scenarios if required ie (Peer to Peer, Main sub, Stand-alone data gathering points).
This network bus can be accessed using either a Network Interface Card* (NIC API-724) and/or
Controller Interface Card (CIC API-725). Modules that are supported on the network are Remote Led
Repeater Board (API-715), Remote Liquid Crystal display (API-720, API-721), remote FireFinderTM main
panels and other FireFinderTM remote data gathering panels.
The network configuration determines whether an NIC or a CIC or a combination of both is required.

6.8.1 Brigade / PSU Monitor Board
The API 673 Brigade/PSU Monitor Board is designed to monitor some of the Brigade board outputs,
monitor and control the battery charging/power supply inputs and outputs and to provide relay outputs as
shown in the Fig 5.
The Bells may be terminated to bell outputs 1 and 2 on the API 673 Brigade/PSU Monitor Board. The
alarm outputs are also available on this board.
The FireFinderTM provides a monitored bell circuit split to drive two 2 Amp circuits. Each bell circuit
requires a 10K EOL resistor to give a system normal indication. If either circuit is open or shorted, the
buzzer will sound on the panel and a bell fault will be indicated on the LCD in the brigade status display.
These lines are monitored using a small current in reverse polarity to normal. For this reason it is
necessary to connect the bells via diodes, 1N4004 diodes (1A 400V) or equivalent are recommended.
Also observe bell/sounder polarity.
Relay outputs marked NO C and NC are voltage free contacts. Outputs marked +ve and -ve are fitted
with monitoring resistors (10k).
For all outputs combined, total output current is 2A (if 2.5A power supply is being used).
Once you have ensured that all field wiring and devices are installed and terminated correctly the
FireFinderTM is now ready to turn on.
Turn the mains power on, and connect the batteries observing correct polarity. The green power on led
should be lit.

14 Definitions
Addressable system - a fire alarm and detection system that contains addressable alarm zone facilities
or addressable control devices.
Alarm verification facility (AVF) - that part of the CIE, which provides an automatic resetting function
for spurious alarm signals so that they will not initiate master alarm facility (MAF), or ACF functions
inadvertently. This is set by using the Config-Manager prior to downloading to FireFinderTM
Alarm zone - the specific portion of a building or complex identified by a particular alarm zone facility.
Alarm zone circuit (AZC) - the link or path that carries signals from an actuating device(s) to an alarm
zone facility(s).
Alarm zone facility (AZF) - that part of the control and indicating equipment that registers and indicates
signals (alarm and fault) received from its alarm zone circuit. It also transmits appropriate signals to other
control and indicating facilities.
Alert signal - an audible signal, or combination of audible and visible signals, from the emergency
warning system to alert wardens and other nominated personnel as necessary to commence prescribed
actions.
Ancillary control facility (ACF) - that portion of the control and indicating equipment that on receipt of a
signal initiates predetermined actions in external ancillary devices.
Ancillary equipment - remote equipment connected to FIP.
Ancillary relay - relay within FIP to operate ancillary equipment.
Ancillary output - output for driving ancillary equipment.
Approved and approval - approved by, or the approval of, the Regulatory Authority concerned.
Card detect line - a link on a module connector to indicate the disconnection of the module.
Control and indicating equipment (CIE) - a combination of control equipment and indicating
equipment.
Conventional System - is a fire detection system using a dedicated circuit for each alarm zone.
Distributed system - a fire alarm and detection system where sections of the control and indicating
equipment are remotely located from the fire indicator panel or where sub-indicator panel(s)
communicate with a main fire indicator panel.
Factory connections - are connections made during manufacture and should not require any field
alterations.
Field connections - are connections made to FIP or ancillary equipment at the project during
installation.
Fire alarm system - an arrangement of components and apparatus for giving an audible, visible, or
other perceptible alarm of fire, and which may also initiate other action.
Fire detection system - an arrangement of detectors and control and indicating equipment employed for
automatically detecting fire and initiating other action as arranged.
Fire indicator panel (FIP) - a panel on which is mounted an indicator or indicators together with
associated equipment for the fire alarm or sprinkler system.
Fire resisting - an element of construction, component or structure which, by requirement of the
Regulatory Authority, has a specified fire resistance.
Indicating equipment - the part of a fire detection and or alarm system, which provides indication of any
warning signals (alarm and fault), received by the control equipment.
Interface - The interconnection between equipment that permits the transfer of data.
Main equipment - equipment essential to the operation of the system including, control equipment,
amplification equipment and power supply modules.

Master alarm facility (MAF) - that part of the control and indicating equipment which receives alarm and
fault signals from any alarm zone facility and initiates the common signal (alarm and/or fault) for
transmission to the fire control station where appropriate. Bells and other ancillary functions may be
initiated from this facility.
Power Supply - that portion of the control and indicating equipment (CIE) which supplies all voltages
necessary for operation of the CIE.
Regulatory Authority - an authority administering Acts of Parliament or Regulations under such Acts.
