Limitations of the Alarm System or Device
While your alarm system or device is reliable and sophisticated, it does not offer guaranteed protection against
burglary, fire or other emergency. Any security product, whether commercial or residential, is subject to
compromise or failure-to-warn for a variety of reasons. These include:
•
Individuals may gain access through unprotected openings or have the technical sophistication to
bypass an alarm sensor or disconnect an alarm warning device.
•
Monitoring devices will not operate without power. Devices powered by AC will not work if their AC
power supply is off for any reason. If system has battery backup, batteries that are not maintained can
fail to provide the necessary power for devices to function properly.
•
Alarm warning devices such as sirens, bells, and horns may not alert people or awaken sleepers if they
are located on the other side of closed or partly closed doors. If warning devices are on a different level
of the residence from the bedrooms, they are less likely to awaken or alert people inside the bedrooms.
•
Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a premises to a central monitoring station may
be out of service, and are subject to compromise by sophisticated means of attack.
•
Signals sent by wireless transmitters may be blocked or reflected by metal before they reach the alarm
receiver. Even if the signal path has been recently checked during a weekly test, blockage can occur if
a metal object is moved into the path.
•
Even if the system responds to the emergency as intended and is a monitored alarm system, the
authorities may not respond appropriately.
•
•
This equipment, like other electrical devices, is subject to component failure.
The most common cause of an alarm system not functioning properly is due to inadequate
maintenance. Your alarm system should be tested weekly to make sure all detection devices are
operating properly. Your control panel and keypads should be tested as well.
Installing an alarm system may make you eligible for lower insurance rates, but an alarm system is not a substitute
for insurance. Homeowners, property owners, and renters should continue to insure their lives and property.

General Information
Overview
The EnviroAlert® EA800 Multi-Zone Environmental Alarm System monitors the environmental conditions detected
by the sensors connected to the base unit, and provides alarm signals when monitored conditions at any of the
sensors exceed the user-programmable HIGH LIMIT or LOW LIMIT set points. The alarm signals are provided via
relay outputs that can operate with process controls, security systems, or other similar automated equipment. The
EA800 Alarm System can be configured with wired or optional wireless sensors (sold separately). The EA800
allows connection of up to 4 wired and 4 wireless sensors.
Setup and programming is done using the front panel keys and the liquid crystal display (LCD) on the base unit.
The display assists the user during setup, and shows measured conditions for the monitored environment during
operation.
The EA800 can monitor multiple critical environments using multiple sensor inputs. Each sensor input/alarm
channel is designated a “Relay”.
Using the appropriate accessory sensors (sold separately), the EA800 Alarm System monitors and provides
alarms for the following conditions:
■ Normally open/normally closed contacts
■ Temperature: from -80° C to 150° C (-112° F to 302° F)
■ Humidity: from 5% to 95% RH (non-condensing)
■ Presence of water
■ Any sensor with a 4-20mA interface
The EA800 base unit may be mounted directly to a 3-gang electrical enclosure or to walls. The wireless sensors
are easily mounted to the wall. Figure 1 shows the base unit and a wireless sensor.

General Information
Monitoring Screens
The EA800 user interface is menu-based. During normal system monitoring, one of the following three screens is
displayed depending on the current state of the programmed sensors:
The MONITORING (home) screen is displayed
when there are no active alarms. The screen lists
all programmed sensors connected to the base
unit and their current reading or state.
The MONITORING (home) screen displays pending
alarms in reverse video as shown in the example
at right (71° exceeds the temperature limit for
Sensor 2, so it is shown as light text on black).
Pending alarms indicate that the programmed limits for the sensor have been exceeded, but the
sensor’s programmed delay time has not elapsed
yet. If the monitored conditions continue to
exceed the programmed limits for longer than the
programmed delay period, the pending alarm will
become an active alarm.
The ACTIVE ALARMS screen is shown when one or
more sensors are in an active alarm or warning
state. If more than one alarm is active, each will
be listed on the screen. In the example shown,
Walk-in Cooler and Warehouse alarms are
occurring simultaneously.

4-20mA Sensors
Theory of Operation
Industry standard 4-20mA sensors can be used with the EA800. However, it is important to verify that this type of
sensor will operate properly over the entire output range.
Figure 6 shows an example of the loop circuit for a 4-20mA sensor whose minimum operating voltage is 8V or less
when connected to an EA800 base unit that is powered with 12VDC.

Power Supply / Sensor Voltage Selection
In order to determine the power supply voltage necessary to ensure correct full-scale operation, it is necessary to
identify all voltage drops within the current loop.
Figures 6 and 7 show an EA800 drop of 4.0 VDC. This value accounts for the voltage drop generated by
connecting the 4-20mA sensor to the EA800 using 1000 feet of 22 AWG wire.
Now it is only necessary to identify the operating voltage range of the 4-20mA sensor, more importantly the
minimum operating voltage. Once identified, the minimum operating voltage of the sensor can be added to the
4.0V voltage drop of the EA800 (+ wire) to determine the power supply voltage necessary to ensure correct
full-scale operation.
Example:
■ Assume that a 4-20mA sensor whose operating input voltage range is 10 – 30V has been selected for use.
Therefore the minimum operating voltage of the sensor is 10V (Vsensor). When the 4.0V drop of the EA800
(and wire) is added, it can be determined that at least 14VDC is needed to power the loop.
■ If the EA800 is connected to a 12VDC power supply, use of the sensor in this example requires an external
power supply of at least 14V as shown in Figure 7.
It is important to not exceed the maximum operating voltage of the 4-20mA sensor, as specified within the sensor’s
product specification.
The following formula provides the basis for the selection matrix shown in Table 7. Please use Table 7 to select
either the proper sensor rating to be used with a known power supply, or select a power supply for a known sensor
rating.
RL < (Vcc – x) .023
where:
■ RL = Loop resistance of 200
■ Vcc = Power supplied to EA800 or Aux Power Out
■ X = Sensor voltage (max)

• Blue, Red and White
temperature sensors
• HA-III+
• 4-20mA sensor
The Hysteresis setting helps prevent alarms from being set and reset
continually if the environment is at or near the alarm set point by providing an acceptable variance. For example, if Hysteresis is set at 2 and the
sensor High limit is set at 50, the sensor reading must decrease to 48
(50 minus 2) in order for the alarm condition to reset to a no-alarm condition.

Alarm Delay
Time
All
This sets the time period that an alarm condition can exist before the
alarm is triggered. This is useful for helping to prevent false alarms from
occurring in situations where normal activities cause conditions to temporarily exceed alarm thresholds. For example, the temperature in a
freezer may temporarily rise above the High alarm limit while frozen food
is being restocked and the freezer door is open, but the delay prevents
the alarm from going off unless the temperature fails to cool below the
alarm threshold within the alarm delay period.

Preparation
Before you begin installation, ensure that you properly plan the alarm system. During the planning phase you will
generate all the documentation you need to successfully install the EA800 base unit and sensors in the alarm
system. This is important because complete and accurate installation documentation aids in system maintenance
later.
! CAUTION
If the EA800 base unit will be connected to a remote alarm panel, do not connect
the base unit to the alarm panel until after sensor connection and configuration
is complete. Connecting the remote alarm panel before configuring the EA800
sensors will result in false alarms at the remote panel.
The suggested preparation procedure is as follows:
1.
Read and understand the entire manual. General Information provides important information required to
properly plan, install, and use the EA800. The preparation phase helps ensure that the EA800 system will
function as required.
2.
Photocopy the pages of Appendix B: Planning Worksheet, Appendix C: EA800 Wiring Diagram (one for each
EA800 base unit in the system), and Appendix D: System Configuration Record to create a record of the
specific EA800 alarm system installation you are currently working on.
3.
Draw a floor plan for the facility where you will install the EA800 alarm system. Identify important details such
as the coolers, doors, computer rooms, etc. An example is shown below.

4.
Locate the base unit where authorized personnel can readily access it. If required, consideration should be
made regarding a location that discourages unauthorized access. If using wireless sensors, locate the base
unit to minimize the wireless distance. Ensure that the desired mounting locations for the EA800 base unit and
each sensor comply with the environmental specifications listed in Table 13: Specifications.
! CAUTION
Do not install the EA800 base unit in coolers or freezers.
! CAUTION
Use only wired sensors specified in this manual for the INPUT 1 through INPUT 4
connections. Unverified sensors may damage the EA800 or result in improper or
unreliable operation.
D-011-0152
17
5.
Complete the copy of Appendix B: Planning Worksheet for the facility in which the EA800 system is to be
installed. This must include all monitored areas for the total security system so that you know how many EA800
base units are needed.
6.
Determine the sensors required from the Planning Worksheet you completed and the information provided for
each sensor type in “System Configuration”. Enter these in the copy of the System Configuration Record you
made.
Note: When water sensors are required, you must use at least one supervised water sensor and may add up to
five additional unsupervised water sensors, all in parallel. Thus, an alarm on any sensor will result in an
alarm with no way to determine which sensor is the source.
7.
Enter the sensor information in the copy of the EA800 Wiring Diagram you made. It is a good idea to name
each sensor on this diagram and use that name in both the EA800 Wiring Diagram and the System
Configuration Record. This helps ensure proper programming of the system after you have physically installed
the system.
!
WARNING
! CAUTION
8.
EA800 relay outputs are intended only for use as low-voltage, low-current
alarm connections, and not for direct switching or control of AC-mains
powered loads. Additionally, local codes may further dictate or limit the types
of loads and associated wiring to be used with the low-current Form C relay
outputs used with the EA800. Connecting AC-mains type circuits to the EA800
may result in an electric shock and/or fire hazard.
Do not connect a load to the AUX OUT or OUTPUT 1 through OUTPUT 8 relay
outputs that exceeds limitations stated in the Specifications section of this
manual. Loads exceeding the specified limitations may damage the EA800, or
result in improper or unreliable operation.
Using the floor plan you created, identify the specific locations for each sensor and verify that their locations
meet the specifications. See Specifications for operational parameters such as cable length.
Note: For 4-20mA sensors: See 4-20mA Sensors for a discussion of determining the constraints for your
4-20mA sensor to ensure accuracy over its rated range.
9.
Determine the channel to use for the wireless sensors. If more than one EA800 is being installed on-site, it is
recommended that they be configured to use different channels.
10. The wireless sensor must be located so that the wireless signal strength is adequate as outlined in Winland
Application Note AN00101. You must verify that the wireless sensors can communicate with the base unit
before you permanently mount them.
Note: Certain environments may present conditions that intermittently cause interference with wireless sensor
to base unit communications. You should understand the environment in which the EA800 is to operate
to minimize their affects on system performance.
11. Decide the loop design you will use. Figure 9 shows an alarm loop where alarm power is derived from the
alarm loop. Figure 10 shows an alarm loop where alarm power is derived from the power supply feeding the
EA800.
Note: if using a self-powered loop, ensure the power supply can provide power for all loading conditions.

■ Configure the relays. See “Configuring the Relays” on page 48.
! CAUTION
Note:
D-011-0152
If the EA800 base unit will be connected to a remote alarm panel, do not connect
the base unit to the alarm panel until after sensor connection and configuration
is complete. Connecting the remote alarm panel before configuring the EA800
sensors will result in false alarms at the remote panel.
When no sensors are programmed in the EA800 system, the EA800 base unit boots up with a 30-minute
delay before the alarm buzzer sounds. At this time the Alarm screen is displayed with a System Alarm
caused by the fact that no sensors have been programmed yet. To prevent the System Alarm from going
off, you must program at least 1 connected sensor into the EA800 base unit prior to the end of the
30-minute alarm time-out. If the alarm buzzer sounds press the Alarm Silence key to temporarily silence
the alarm buzzer.

Adding Wireless Sensors
Verify Wireless Signal Strength
After temporarily mounting the wireless sensors in the desired location, verify the signal strength at the base unit by
performing the following procedure to verify the signal strength of each programmed wireless sensor. It may take
as long as 30 seconds to acquire the current signal strength.
Perform the following procedure to verify the signal strength of each programmed wireless sensor.
No Data is displayed until a signal is received and then the
signal strength is displayed as shown in the last screen.
F3
If No Data is displayed in place of bars, it indicates that recent signal strength information has not been received. If
this persists for 1-2 minutes without displaying any performance bars, it is a strong indication that your sensor is
placed out of range with the base unit.
If fewer than two bars are shown, it is recommended that the sensor be relocated to obtain a better signal. Refer to
the instruction sheet included with the wireless sensor for details on ensuring optimum signal strength.The wireless
environment can change throughout the day because of other activity in the vicinity. It is therefore important to
verify the signal strength by approximating the worst case scenario the RF signal may encounter.

Adding a Sensor
The procedure for adding a sensor to an existing system is the same as for a new system. See “Install the Wired
Sensors” on page 22 or “Install the Wireless Sensors” on page 22 for instructions on physically installing the sensor
and then programming the sensor in the EA800 base unit.
Note:
See “Pausing Monitoring and Cancelling Pause” on page 56 and pause the base unit before you begin
so you can set up the sensor without tripping the alarm.
Note:
If adding more than one sensor, add them to the system one at a time. (Power on one sensor and add it
to the system, then power on the next sensor and add it). Do not power on all sensors at the same time.
Note:
Update the system’s Configuration Worksheets to document any changes.
Replacing a Sensor
The EA800 allows you to replace an existing, programmed wireless sensor with another of the same type. When
replaced, the original sensor’s programmed settings and parameters are retained and applied to the new sensor. If
you need to change settings other than those provided in the Edit Sensor screen, you must delete the existing
sensor and then add the replacement sensor.
Note:
See “Pausing Monitoring and Cancelling Pause” on page 56 to pause the base unit before you begin so
you can replace the sensor without tripping the alarm.
Note:
If adding more than one sensor, add them to the system one at a time. (Power on one sensor and add it
to the system, then power on the next sensor and add it). Do not power on all sensors at the same time.
Note:
Update the system’s Configuration Worksheets to document any changes.
To replace an existing wireless sensor:
1.
Physically replace the sensor with another of the same type and ensure it is powered on.
2.

to exit maintenance and resume monitoring.
Editing Sensor Parameters
The general procedure for editing sensor parameters is provided below. Not all sensor parameters can be edited
for an installed sensor. The editable parameters are dependent on the installed sensor, so the EDIT SENSOR screen
varies according to the sensor selected. You cannot edit the following:
■ The low and high scaled values for a 4-20mA sensor. If these require changes, you must delete the 4-20mA
sensor and re-add it to the system. See “Connecting Wired HA-III+ Humidity Sensors” on page 25.
■ A sensor’s type. For example, if a 4-20mA sensor was incorrectly added as a Blue temperature sensor, you
must delete the incorrect sensor and then re-add the correct sensor.
■ The unit of measure. If unit of measure must be changed, the sensor must be deleted and re-added to the system.
Note:
Update the system’s Configuration Worksheets to document changes.

■ Blank (,,): The data is null and is not valid for that sensor. For example, the LQI (signal strength) position is null
for wired sensors but shows the LQI value as shown for the two wireless sensors (255 and 105 respectively).
Where wireless sensors are not installed the LQI is also blank indicating that no reading is made.
■ 0 (,0,): The data is valid and is valid data for that sensor’s data point.

Troubleshooting
Operating or setup errors are indicated by flashing data on the display. Often, a programming error also results in
an alarm for the misprogrammed relay. The table below shows and describes common error displays, along with
corrective action. For updated information, go to the EA800 page at www.winland.com and look for the
troubleshooting section.
Table 13
Troubleshooting
Symptom
Temperature reading indicates maximum when
temperature is actually
less.
Cause
Wired sensor is shorted
Wired sensor cable has a short.
Sensor has failed
Temperature reading indi- Wired sensor is not connected
cates minimum when temperature is actually
greater.
Wired sensor cable has an open.
Sensor has failed
Corrective Action
Ensure that the sensor connection is not shorted.
A short equals zero resistance and thus the maximum value.
Replace damaged cable.
Contact Winland Technical Services at
1-800-635-4269
Ensure that the sensor is connected to the correct header pins. An open connection equals an
infinite resistance and thus the minimum value.
Replace damaged cable.
Contact Winland Technical Services at
1-800-635-4269.
Temperature display does
not equal actual temperature.
Incorrect sensor programmed
Verify the actual sensor connected to the sensor
input is programmed appropriately. Each temperature sensor is limited to a specific operating
range.
Display flashes repeatedly between the Winland
Electronics Inc. screen
and a blank screen.
The EA800 reboots repeatedly
and fails to successfully complete the boot process.
Cycle power to the EA800 and wait for a period
of time before reapplying power.
If a USB drive is attached to the USB port,
remove it and cycle power as noted above.
If the problem recurs, contact Winland Technical
Service at 1-800-635-4269.
The display flashes while
displaying the
ACTIVE ALARMS screen
A sensor's reading has
exceeded a set limit.
A wireless sensor is not communicating with the base unit.
Verify the environmental conditions of the sensor.
Verify the received signal strength as outlined in
“Verifying RF Signal Strength” on page 72.

Verifying RF Signal Strength
Verifying RF Signal Strength
Viewing Signal Strength for a Wireless Sensor
To verify the RF signal strength received by the EA800 perform the following procedure:
Unlock the EA800 as shown
in “Locking and Unlocking
the EA800” on page 55
F3
To return to SELECT
SENSOR screen
To return to home screen.
If the remote sensor transmitter you are verifying is battery powered, it may take up to 30 seconds for the base unit
to receive a transmission from the remote sensor.
The base unit displays an approximation of signal strength as indicated by the
number of filled boxes on the screen as shown at right.
Note: The date and time shown at the bottom of the PERFORMANCE screen is the
time stamp of the last received transmission.
Ensure that at least 2 Signal Strength bars are displayed as shown at right. If not, it is
recommended that the sensor be relocated until at least 2 bars are achieved. More
bars reduces sensor alarm latency, reduces the probability of communication
alarms, and increases battery life.
For additional information on how to improve signal strength, refer to Winland
application note AN00101.
