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 (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 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 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 0-49º
C/32-120º F and at a relative humidity 93% ± 2% RH (noncondensing) 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/60-80º 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 in-lbs. Overtightening 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.

Introduction to the Control Panel
General Information
1.4 Introduction to the Control Panel
The NFS2-3030 is an intelligent Fire Alarm Control Panel (FACP) with features suitable for most
applications.
There are two basic configuration options for the NFS2-3030. It can be ordered with:
•
a front display/keypad, which allows programming and viewing options at the panel, or
•
no display/keypad.
This manual gives programming instructions using the front display/keypad.
Displayless Mode
When there is no keypad/display at the panel, it is controlled by remote annunciators. VeriFire™
Tools programming is required. The displayless panel has four buttons on its circuit board that are
service-level switches for local operation should it become necessary. They are the only buttons,
and are clearly marked with ACK for Acknowledge, SIGSIL for Signal Silence, SYSRST for
System Reset, and LAMP TEST. These buttons are mainly for installer use: the operator should
utilize a remote annunciator for these functions, if possible. The status indicator LEDs on the
circuit board are the same as on the display/keypad; refer to the NFS2-3030 Operating Manual for
LED descriptions.
Refer to VeriFire™ Tools for information on programming without an NFS2-3030 display/keypad.
A PC is required when using VeriFire™ Tools.
Canadian applications must conform to ULC requirements for displays and network control. Refer
to the Canadian Applications appendix in this panel’s installation manual.
1.4.1 Features
Programming features include the following:
•
Ease of use - Field program the control panel without special software skills.
•
Local programming - program directly from the control panel keypad to reduce installation
time.
•
PC programming - input long data entry programming information on a PC; transfer
programming data between a PC and the control panel.
•
Autoprogram option - automatically detect newly installed, addressable devices, allowing
quicker installation.
•
Security - use passwords to control access to the control panel and protect programming.
•
Large display option - 640 character screen, 16 lines x 40 characters
1.5 Navigating Menu and Programming Screens
The Main Menu (refer to Figure 2.1) leads to screens with various menu and programming options.
Choices may be made from the menu screens by pressing the soft key closest to the menu option.
Appendix A, “Menu Hierarchy” gives the programming menu hierarchy; refer to this appendix for
an overall view of the layout of the screens.
Field information may be added/modified using the keyboard and special function keys.
Arrow keys on the keyboard can be used to navigate between fields on a screen if there are no soft
keys to select the fields.
Scrolling through a list of selections in a screen field can be performed either by repeatedly
pressing the associated soft key, or by pressing the Next Selection/Previous Selection special
function keys on the Display/Keypad.
Pressing a BACK soft key on a screen returns the programmer to the previous screen without saving
the information entered.
NFS2-3030 Programming Manual — P/N 52545:K1 03/20/2012
11
General Information
Basic Procedure
Pressing an ACCEPT soft key will save the information entered on the screen. It may also return to
the previous screen and/or perform other functions as described in the soft key section for each
screen.
When the FACP can not read an address (that is, if the point entered on the screen for processing
does not exist) it will display an error screen for several seconds, then return to the screen where the
address was entered. The user must check his input and investigate the state of the point.
1.6 Basic Procedure
For initial programming of the panel, or for major changes and additions, the following basic
procedure is recommended to prevent errors resulting in reprogramming and wasted time.
•
Use work sheets to record the exact information for every detector, module, annunciator point
and software zone in the system. Pay close attention to the Software Type IDs. For voice
systems, pay close attention to AMG annunciator point commands. The panel program may
also be created using VeriFire™ Tools and downloaded to the panel after assembly and powerup.
•
Assemble and apply power to the control panel as described in this panel’s installation manual.
All system boards must be physically installed.
•
Read this manual before programming.
•
Enter/change master and user passwords.
•
Enter panel and network parameters.
•
Program all devices and thoroughly test the entire system. The Walk Test feature can be used to
test devices and their programming.
•
Make a hard-copy record of the program on the printer.
•
Save the program by uploading it using VeriFire™ Tools.
1.7 Getting Started
Once the system has been physically installed, programming may begin. The user may program at
any time except while there is an unacknowledged alarm present.
To ensure security, passwords should be entered at this time to replace the factory default settings.
1.7.1 Password Change
The NFS2-3030 has two password levels; master and user. There is one master password, which
grants access to all system programming. There are nine user passwords, each of which may be
assigned access to the programming change menus, the alter status menus, or both. A user
password does not give access to or allow change to any password parameters, not even its own.
Only the master password will allow access to password change screens.
The panel arrives with factory default settings of 00000000 for the master password, and 11111111
for one user password.
Follow the steps below to change the factory settings:
12
1.
Press PROGRAM/ALTER STATUS at the Main Menu screen.

Section 3: Program
3.1 General Information
The NFS2-3030 operates with two levels of programming: Program, and Alter Status.
Program level allows change to the essential control panel functions such as point functions, system
functions, and passwords. Program level change requires the master password, or a user password
that allows access to the Program level. All password information can be changed with a master
password only.
Alter Status level allows change to operating parameters, such as detector sensitivity, or time/date,
or Walk Test. The master password, or a user password that allows access to the Alter Status level,
is required.
NOTE: All events except troubles are annunciated during programming. When an annunciated
event occurs, the panel will automatically exit the programming screen and the Event Counts
menu screen will appear.
To access the Program level, press the Program/Alter Status soft key on the Main Menu and at the
prompt enter a master password, or a user password that allows access to the Program level. The
following screen will display.

VERIFY TIME: Press this soft key to set the Alarm Verification timer. Type in a value of 0-60
(seconds), which will delay initiating devices set for Alarm Verification from signaling for the
amount of time entered. If a second alarm occurs while the alarm verification timer is counting, the
timer will stop and the alarm will signal immediately. Default: 30
NOTE: This value may not exceed 30 seconds for ULC installations.
MAXIMUM VERIFICATION COUNT: Press and enter a value from 0-20 for a maximum
verification count threshold value that applies to detectors set to participate in Alarm Verification.
A value of zero produces no verification trouble. When the counter exceeds the threshold value
entered, a trouble is generated to the panel. Default: 20
AC FAIL DELAY: Press this soft key to set the timing for the time delay from AC failure to when
the trouble is reported. Type in a value of 1-12 (hours), or select NONE. A value of NONE will
cause immediate notification. Default: 8
NOTE: AC FAIL DELAY settings other than 1-3 hours for off-premises notification require the
approval of the local Authority Having Jurisdiction.

to this setting.
UDACTs and UDACT-2s are notified immediately of AC failure by the panel, regardless of the
panel’s delay setting. Once the UDACT or UDACT-2 receives notification, it operates according to
its own programmed AC Fail Delay reporting schedule.
Example: AC Failure occurs at 1:00 p.m. on a panel with an AC FAIL DELAY setting of 8
hours. The UDACT/UDACT-2 is set for notification after 6 hours

3.2.8 ACS Programming
An ACS device is a remote device used by the panel to annunciate certain system messages, and/or
to act with limited commands. A total of 32 annunciator devices may be present on the EIA-485
ACS circuit; however, some devices have associated expander devices, and an NFS2-3030 ACS
circuit can accommodate up to 3,072 annunciator points. The ACS Programming and ACS Point

Panel Program
Programming screens in this section allow the user to define the mapping and functional mode of
these devices and points. Each annunciator board may be labeled using the ACS Label Menu.
(Refer to Section 3.4.7, “Annunciator Board Label”, on page 63).
NOTE: Smoke Control devices must be set as FSCS or HVAC annunciator types. In addition to
its 64 smoke control points, when an SCS device is operating in FSCS (Firefighters Smoke
Control Station) mode, there are 32 additional points which function as alarm points. They can be
mapped to a zone or point to send the SCS device into a fire alarm state when any of the
additional 32 points is activated. Any of the 32 alarm points that are used must be set to
MONITOR mode from the panel. Any of these points that are not used can be set to NONE. Refer
to the SCS manual for further information on Smoke Control devices.
UDACT/UDACT-2 and TM-4 communicators, as well as the UZC Zone Coder, are installed on the
same EIA-485 ACS circuit as annunciators, and so are included with annunciator programming.
The TM-4 occupies one of the 32 annunciator addresses, and the UDACT or UDACT-2 can occupy
one or more of these addresses. The UZC can occupy up to four annunciator addresses, each with
64 points. When the UDACT/UDACT-2 or UZC expand beyond one annunciator address, 64PT
should be used for the subsequent address types, and the annunciator addresses should be
sequential. Other than address assignment, there is no ACS point programming for these devices.
Refer to the specific device manual for more information.
Press the ACS Programming soft key at the Panel Program screen to invoke the following screen.

ZONE MAP: A detector may be mapped to up to ten general, releasing, or special zones. There are
ten positions available for mapping; positions 1, 9 and 10 have additional functionality. (Refer to
Figure 3.33)
Position 1 - Use this position to link the 20-character zone label to the detector. The zone label
will appear after the 20-character label and 12-character extended label, providing a total of 52
characters to describe an event.
This position is checked when a group zone disable command is issued. If the zone number in
the group zone disable command matches the zone number in the first position of the zone
map, the detector point will be disabled.
Position 9 • Use this position to activate the sounder/relay base of a detector. When this position is
mapped to the same zone as Position 10, the sounder or relay base will be activated when
the detector goes into prealarm (Action).
• Use this position to activate the sounder base of a detector using a general or a logic zone.
When a general or logic zone activates, the panel is searched for any detector with the same
zone mapped in its 9th position. The sounder base of any FlashScan detector that matches
the search will activate.
Position 10 - Use this position to map detectors with an “Action” Prealarm setting. The zone in
the tenth position will activate when the detector reaches its Prealarm threshold; no other zones
in this detector’s zone map will activate.
Move the cursor with the keyboard arrow keys to the appropriate zone map position, then select the
type of zone by pressing the NEXT SELECTION (+) key until the desired zone type appears. Type in a
zone number to map the detector to it.

3.4.6 Trouble Zone
Trouble Zone Programming
Trouble zones provide a means of using a system trouble input to affect an output. For instance, an
annunciator trouble can be used to activate an output device.
The trouble zone format is ZTxxx, where xxx is a number from one through one hundred. When a
trouble zone format is entered at the Point Select screen, the same programming screens and
choices appear as for logic zones, except the zone format is a trouble zone format. (Refer to
paragraphs “Logic Zone Programming” on page 58 and the paragraphs following “Add
Time/Date”).
Refer to Appendix E, “CBE: Zones and Equations” for information on how to create a trouble
equation, and how they operate.
Add Node Offline Trouble
Node offline troubles can be added to trouble zone programming to act as a means of affecting an
output in the event a node goes online or offline.
Adding a node offline trouble to the trouble zone equation is done in the same manner as described
in the "Logic Zone Programming" section on page 58. However, the POINT SELECT option is
not available. To add the node offline trouble, place the cursor in the desired position and type in
NO###, where the ### represents the network node that is being monitored for the trouble. Refer to
the following trouble zone programming examples:
OR(NO22,NO25,NO159) - In this example, if Node 22, Node 25, or Node 159 go offline, then the
trouble zone will turn ON. Once the nodes all return to their online status, the trouble zone returns
to OFF. Other parameters (detectors, modules, zones, etc.) can be used in this equation as well.
OR(RANGE(NO78,NO81) - In this example, if Nodes 78, 79, 80, and 81 go offline, the trouble
zone will turn ON. Once any one of the nodes return to the online status, the trouble zone returns to
OFF. Other parameters (detectors, modules, zones, etc.) can be used in this equation as well.

4.6 Walk Test
Walk Test allows the user to test the entire fire alarm system while away from the control panel.
There are two types of Walk Test - Basic and Advanced - and each type operates in audible mode.
Walk Test results are sent to the printer and to Event History as “Test”. In Network applications,
specific nodes can be excluded from having the ability to force the fire panel out of Walk Test. This
is programmable via VeriFire Tools. Refer to the VeriFire Tools help file.
!
WARNING:
PHYSICALLY DISCONNECT ALL RELEASING DEVICES BEFORE STARTING WALK TEST. IT IS
NOT SUFFICIENT TO DISABLE IN ANY OTHER MANNER.
!
WARNING:
WALK TEST MODE CAN DEACTIVATE FIRE PROTECTION. OBSERVE THE FOLLOWING
IMPORTANT PRECAUTIONS.
IMPORTANT!
• Prior to Walk Test, secure all protected buildings, and notify the building owner/operator,
fire department, and other pertinent personnel that testing is in progress.
• Immediately after Walk Test is completed, notify the same people that testing is complete
and the system is restored to normal operation. Reconnect releasing devices.
• Walk Test will “time out” and return to normal operation after one hour when no Walk Test
activations have occurred during that time.
• Walk Test may be exited at any time by pressing the ABORT soft key on the screen.

Walk Test
Alter Status
NOTE: Walk Test will not start if any devices are active (i.e., fire alarms, security, supervisories
or pre-alarms). To perform a walk test while a device is active, disable the device and press the
System Reset button.
NOTE: In network applications, specific nodes can be excluded from having the ability to force the fire
panel out of Walk Test due to an alarm condition. This is programmable via VeriFire Tools. Refer to the
VeriFire Tools help file.
Basic Walk Test - The basic test allows a single operator to run audible tests on the panel. All logic
equation automation is suspended during the test. All ACS devices will default to Disable. They
may be enabled by selecting NO at the DISABLE ACS BOARDS soft key on the Walk Test Menu
screen (Figure 4.9).
Advanced Walk Test - The advanced test allows field-supplied output point programming that will
react to input stimuli such as CBE and logic equations. When points are activated in advanced
testing, each initiating event will latch the input. Release of the latch and subsequent activation of
the next point is controlled through use of the NEXT TEST soft key. All ACS devices default to
disable. They may be enabled by selecting NO at the DISABLE ACS BOARDS soft key on the
Walk Test Menu screen (Figure 4.9). An advanced test is audible.
An audible test is intended for pull station verification, magnet-activated tests on input devices,
input and output device and wiring operation/verification. Only devices previously configured to
participate and designated as part of the test through the following screens will make sound.
 Walk Test Activation Indications
FlashScan poll mode - Once the START TEST soft key has been pressed:
•
Each intelligent addressable input device will blink its address in red, and each intelligent
addressable output device will blink its address in green. Pattern examples are given below.
Address
Blink Pattern
8
8 blinks, long stop, 8 blinks, long stop, …
37
3 blinks, stop, 7 blinks, long stop, 3 blinks, stop, 7 blinks, long stop, …
152
15 blinks, stop, 2 blinks, long stop, 15 blinks, stop, 2 blinks, long stop, …
•
An input device activated in Walk Test latches on steady green for the duration of the test. If
the device is put in trouble (for instance, the detector head is removed, then replaced), the LED
will be latched on for the duration of the test.
•
An output device activated in Basic Walk Test will remain active and the LED will glow steady
green for
– 4 seconds for alarms
– 8 seconds for troubles.
•
An output device activated in Advanced Walk Test will remain active and the LED will glow
steady green until the NEXT TEST soft key is pressed.
CLIP poll mode - Once the START TEST soft key has been pressed:
•
Intelligent addressable input and output devices continue to blink red as usual until activated.
•
An input device activated in Walk Test latches on steady red during activation. If the device is
put in trouble (for instance, the detector head is removed, then replaced), the LED will be
latched on for the duration of the test.
•
An output device activated during Basic Walk Test will remain active and the LED will glow
steady green (if a FlashScan module) or steady red (if a CLIP module) for
– 4 seconds for alarms
– 8 seconds for troubles.

Conventional Devices - Monitor modules with the Type Codes SMOKE CONV, HEAT DETECT, and
SMOKE DETECT, and outputs with the Type Code FORM C RESET do not participate in Walk Test other
than blinking their addresses if they are polled in FlashScan mode unless they are used with a
FlashScan zone module. To prevent the occurrence of false alarms for conventional devices, 24 volt
power will be interrupted for up to a minute after Walk Test has been exited.

WARNING:
DO NOT RELY ON DISABLE TO DISABLE RELEASING POINTS DURING TESTING. 
RELEASING POINTS MUST BE PHYSICALLY DISCONNECTED.
B.1 Releasing Zones
The control panel includes ten releasing zones (ZR00-ZR09) that can be used to control up to ten
releasing operations. Each zone operates independently, and is fully programmable. To program a
releasing zone, refer to Section 3.4.4, “Releasing Zone”, on page 57.
There are four releasing functions, outlined below, that can be defined by entering values in the
associated fields during programming.
Function/Field
Delay Time
Explanation
Delay Time is the time that elapses between activation of an initiating device and activation
of all outputs mapped to the initiating device through a releasing zone.
Delay Time can have a value of 0 to 60 (seconds). A value of 0 will result in immediate
output activation upon activation of the initiating device.
Following is a graphic representation of what happens when a delay timer is set to 15
seconds for releasing zone ZR02.

NOTE: If cross-zoning is in effect, the delay time will not begin until the crosszoning conditions are met. Refer to Appendix B.3.5, “Cross Zones”, on page 104 for
more information.
96
Abort Switch
Selection of a 3-letter abort switch type code (ULI, IRI, NYC, or AHJ) defines the operation
of an Abort Switch in that releasing zone. Refer to the specific abort switch type code
heading in this appendix for details on how each functions.
Cross Zone
Select one of three Cross Zone types (Yes, Zone, or Heat), or No (not used). A Cross Zone
requires tripping two or more initiating devices to activate the outputs mapped to a
releasing zone. Refer to the Section B.3.5 on page 104 section of this appendix for details
and examples.
Soak Time (NFPA
16 Applications
only)
Soak Time specifies the length of time to dump releasing agents when a releasing zone
activates. When the Soak Time expires, the control panel automatically shuts the releasing
solenoids for the active releasing zone. Soak Time can have a value of 0 to 9999 seconds.
If Soak Time is set to 0, the releasing solenoids will remain active until system reset.
Following is a graphic representation of what happens when soak time is set to 300
seconds for releasing zone ZR02.

B.3 Abort Switches
The control panel provides for four types of abort switches - ULI, IRI, NYC, and AHJ - each of
which will affect the operation of the delay timer in the releasing zone. For example, an NYC Abort
Switch for releasing zone ZR05 affects only the delay timer in ZR05.
When an initiating device activates, pressing and holding the abort switch will prevent the control
panel from sending the command to dump releasing agents when the Delay Time expires.
Requirements for using an abort switch include the following:
• A monitor module must be connected to a UL-listed abort station, such as the NBG-12LRA
shown below.
• The monitor module must be programmed with the Type Code ABORT SWITCH.
• An abort switch shall not be used with a preaction system.

Releasing Applications
Abort Switches
• A monitor module wired to an abort station and programmed with the Type Code ABORT
SWITCH
• All initiating devices and outputs with a common releasing zone in their zone maps - ZR05
in the example shown
• A fully programmed releasing zone - releasing zone ZR05 in the example shown. (Refer to
Section 3.4.4, “Releasing Zone”, on page 57 for programming information.)
In the following example, when an initiating device activates (one of the two detectors or the pull
station), pressing and holding the abort switch while the delay time is in effect will prevent the
control panel from sending the command to dump releasing agents when the delay time expires.
The abort switch selection (ULI, IRI, NYC, or AHJ) determines the function of the abort switch.

B.3.1 ULI Abort Switch
A ULI Abort Switch has a standard UL-type delay timer that complies with UL Standard 864.
When an alarm initiates in the programmed releasing zone, the abort switch can be pressed while
the delay timer continues to count down, and held for as long as necessary. If the abort switch is
pressed after the delay timer has expired, the abort switch has no effect. Releasing the abort switch
starts a countdown by a 10-second ULI timer. When the 10-second ULI timer expires, the control
panel activates the releasing zone outputs.

B.3.2 IRI Abort Switch
An IRI Abort Switch has a standard UL-type delay timer that complies with UL Standard 864,
operating like ULI but with additional functions for Cross Zones. Refer to “How Cross Zones
Work” on page 104 in this appendix for more information on cross zones.
When the first alarm occurs in a releasing zone programmed with a cross-zone code, pressing the
abort switch will prevent activation of the releasing zone should a second alarm occur while the
switch is held.
When the abort switch is released, if a second alarm has occurred while the switch was held, the
ten-second IRI timer activates immediately, and the control panel activates the releasing zone
outputs at the end of the IRI timer countdown.
When the abort switch is released and a second alarm has not occurred while the switch was held,
the panel waits for the cross-zone conditions to be met before activating the releasing zone.
!
WARNING:
THE IRI ABORT SWITCH WILL ONLY WORK IF IT IS PUSHED BEFORE THE SECOND ALARM
OCCURS. IF IT IS PUSHED AFTER THE SECOND ALARM, THE RELEASING ZONE WILL
ALREADY HAVE BEEN ACTIVATED, AND THE SWITCH WILL HAVE NO EFFECT.

B.3.3 NYC Abort Switch
An NYC Abort Switch has a standard NYC delay timer that adds 90 seconds to the programmed
Delay Time.
NOTE: An NYC timer does not comply with UL Standard 864.
When an alarm initiates in the programmed releasing zone, pressing and holding the abort switch
stops the delay timer countdown. The delay timer restarts at the beginning of its countdown when
the abort switch is released. When the Delay Time expires, the 90-second NYC timer starts
counting down. When both timers expire, the control panel activates releasing zone outputs.
NOTE: 120 seconds is the maximum delay after the abort switch is released. If the Delay Time
plus the NYC delay time of 90 seconds exceeds 120 seconds, the releasing zone outputs will still
be activated at 120 seconds after the abort switch is released.
Example 1 - Delay Time Does Not Exceed 120 Seconds
Program a Delay Time of 15 seconds and an Abort Switch type of NYC. The releasing zone
activates and the 15-second delay timer starts. Ten seconds into the delay timer countdown, press
and hold the abort switch for 30 seconds, then release the abort switch. The control panel restarts
the delay timer at 15 seconds and adds the NYC delay of 90 seconds. The delay timers will both
expire at 105 seconds, and releasing zone outputs will begin releasing at that time. Following is a
graphic example of a NYC Abort Switch and a delay timer programmed to a releasing zone.

B.3.5 Cross Zones
Purpose of Cross Zones
Programming the Cross Zone releasing function can set the control panel to activate a releasing
zone and any output mapped to that releasing zone only after a predetermined sequence of events
occurs.
NOTE: The FACP considers only the Primary Zone (the first zone in a point’s zone map) to
determine whether conditions have been met for Cross Zone type Zone.
CAUTION: MAPPING OF ANY INPUTS THAT ARE NOT ASSOCIATED WITH A PRIMARY
ZONE COULD CAUSE IMPROPER OPERATION OF CROSS ZONE TYPE ZONE.
!
A summary of the types of Cross Zones and the conditions for activating a releasing zone:
Type
Activates when
No
A Cross Zone has not been selected. An alarm from any initiating device mapped to the releasing zone
activates it.
Yes
Two or more initiating devices are in alarm that are mapped to the same releasing zone.
Zone
Two or more initiating devices are in alarm that are mapped to two different Primary Zones and that are also
mapped to the same releasing zone. Note that the FACP considers only Primary Zones to determine
whether releasing zone activation should occur.
Heat
At least one smoke detector mapped to a releasing zone is in alarm and at least one heat detector mapped
to the same releasing zone is in alarm.

Figure B.11 Monitor Module Configured as a Manual Release Delay Switch
For example, program releasing zone ZR05 with a Manual Release Delay switch for the following
releasing selections: Delay Time = 15, Abort Switch = ULI, Cross Zone = NO, Soak Time = 30.
When the Manual Release Delay Switch activates, the control panel replaces the remainder of the
15-second Delay Time, if running, with a 10-second timer.
Examples:
1. The FACP programmed Delay Time begins its 15 second countdown. The Manual Release
Delay switch is pulled when the FACP delay timer has counted down to 12 seconds. The 12
seconds remaining in the countdown are overridden by the 10-second delay initiated by the
Manual Delay switch. In this example, the total time elapsing from FACP countdown initiation
to agent release is 13 seconds, less than the original 15 second FACP Delay Timer countdown.
108
2.
The FACP programmed Delay Time begins its 15 second countdown. The Manual Release
Delay switch is pulled when the FACP Delay Timer has counted down to 8 seconds. The 8
seconds remaining in the countdown are overridden by the 10-second delay initiated by the
Manual Delay switch. In this example, the total time elapsing from FACP countdown initiation
to agent release is 17 seconds, more than the original 15 second FACP Delay Timer
countdown.
3.
The FACP programmed Delay Time is not running (as would happen if the releasing station
were pulled before an alarm registered). The Manual Release Delay Switch is activated by the
pull station. Agent release will occur in 10 seconds.

Delay Time = 15, Abort Switch = ULI, Cross Zone = Y, Soak Time = 30
ZR05 can be activated in one of two ways, as described in the examples given below.
Example 1: If the detector initiates the alarm, ZR05 activates. Releasing begins after the delay
timer has expired (15 seconds). Releasing will continue for the soak timer duration (30 seconds).
The Second Shot switch can then be activated, and will remain activated for the soak timer
duration. Once the soak timer expires, the Second Shot switch can then be activated to initiate an
additional soak cycle.
Example 2: If the NBG-12LRA (Type Code MAN REL DELAY) lever is pulled, the manual release
delay timer begins its 10 second countdown. Releasing will begin after the manual release delay
timer has expired, and will continue for the soak timer duration (30 seconds). The Second Shot
switch can then be activated, and will remain activated for the soak timer duration. Once the soak
timer expires, the Second Shot switch can then be activated to initiate an additional soak cycle.

Miscellaneous
The outputs are each set to a code appropriate for one of the three releasing phases: for example,
one code for the first alarm, a faster code when the Delay Timer activates, and a continuous tone
during releasing.
Program Program releasing zone ZR1 as follows:
ZR1 = Delay Time:15, Abort Switch:ULI, Cross Zone:YES, Soak Time:120
Map ZR1 to all inputs and outputs shown in this example.
Program logic zones as follows:
ZL1 = AND(OR(L1D1,L1D2,L1D3,L1D4,L1D5,L1D6),NOT(L1M30))
When conditions are met for ZL1, a first alarm has occurred in the releasing zone, but the
Delay Timer has not yet started. Map ZL1 to an output set to the code chosen for a first alarm
(L1M31 in this example).
ZL2 = AND(L1M30,NOT(L1M20))
When conditions are met for ZL2, the Delay Timer has started, but releasing has not begun.
Map ZL2 to the output set to the code chosen for when the Delay Timer activates (L1M32 in
this example).
ZL3 = OR(L1M20)

Releasing Applications
Multiple zone initiating devices can be used for the same releasing hazard. Map zone initiating
devices to the same Releasing Zone. Factory Mutual and certain Local Authorities Having
Jurisdiction require using redundant wiring (NFPA 72 Style 6 or Style D) for initiating devices in
releasing applications.
B.4.2 Warning Sounders
Warning sounders connect to SLC output module circuits (refer to this panel’s installation manual).
Note the following:
• If selecting Cross Zones, a warning sounder only activates when two zones alarm.
• Warning sounders, unlike release solenoids, do not wait for a Delay Timer.
• If Coding Functions are required for warning sounders, use an SLC output module.
• The same releasing hazard can activate multiple NACs.
Instructions for activating warning sounders:

Appendix C: Special Zone Outputs
C.1 Presignal and Positive Alarm Sequence (PAS)
C.1.1 What is Presignal and PAS?
Purpose
Presignal is a feature that initially causes alarm signals to only sound in specific areas, monitored
by qualified persons. This allows delay of the alarm up to 180 seconds after the start of alarm
processing. The control panel Presignal feature provides two selections:
• A Presignal Delay Timer (1:00 to 3:00 minutes) that delays activation of all outputs with a
CBE that includes Special Zone ZF0.
• A PAS (Positive Alarm Sequence) selection, in addition to the Presignal Delay Timer, that
allows a 15-second time period for acknowledging an alarm signal from a fire
detection/initiating device. If the alarm is not acknowledged within 15 seconds, all local and
remote outputs activate immediately and automatically.
An illustration of Presignal and PAS timing.

annunciation
If PAS=Y, alarm activates

control panel is not reset
Figure C.1 Presignal and PAS Time
The control panel delays activation of outputs containing ZF0 in their zone maps for all alarm
initiating devices that contain ZF0 in their CBE list. A subsequent alarm will abort the Presignal
Delay Timer and execute CBE lists.
Notes on using ZF0
• NFPA 72 requires installation of a PAS Inhibit switch, that can be used to turn off the PAS
delay timer when the control panel is unattended. Do so by programming a monitor module
with the Type Code, PAS INHIBIT.
• The Presignal Delay timer countdown can be stopped by pressing the SYSTEM RESET key
before the timer expires.
• Program zone ZF0 to participating inputs and outputs.
Restrictions on using ZF0
• Do not include ZF0 in the CBE list for a releasing device.
• Do not include ZF0 in the CBE list for any monitor module that connects to a device other
than an automatic fire detector.
C.1.2 Selecting Presignal and PAS Outputs
Presignal
The Presignal Delay Timer can be set to a value between 60 and 180 seconds. A Presignal Delay
Timer does not apply to the following:
• System Alarm relay
118
NFS2-3030 Programming Manual — P/N 52545:K1 03/20/2012
Drill Mode
Special Zone Outputs
• TM-4 polarity reversal alarm output
• TM-4 municipal box output
• UDACT/UDACT-2
Positive Alarm Sequence (PAS)
Outputs selected for PAS delay for 15 seconds. Acknowledgement within the 15-second delay will
set the Presignal Delay Timer to the full programmed value (60-180 seconds, including the PAS
delay of 15 seconds). When an alarm comes from an initiating device with a CBE list that includes
ZF0, the control panel delays the following outputs:
• System Alarm relay
• TM-4 polarity reversal alarm output
• TM-4 municipal box output
• UDACT/UDACT-2
C.2 Drill Mode
C.2.1 What is Drill Mode?
Drill Mode is a feature that customizes drill activations, allowing only specific devices on the
NFS2-3030 to activate when a local or network Drill is performed. These devices require the drill
zone (Special Function Zone 16) to be added to the zone mapping of each point. Refer to “Point
Program” on page 43.
There are two options for Drill Mode Programming:
• Standard - The fire panel will turn on all appropriate output devices.
• Custom - The fire panel will turn on all output devices with zone mapping that includes
Special Function Zone 16.
When in Standard Drill Mode:
• The Drill Zone does not activate.
• Performing a Signal Silence will turn off all silenceable outputs.
• Activation of another drill will return all silenceable outputs to an active state.
• All silenceable and non-silenceable outputs will turn off following a System Reset.
When in Custom Drill Mode:
• Performing a Signal Silence will turn off all silenceable outputs.
• Activation of second drill will not return the silenceable outputs to an active state unless a
System Reset is performed.
• All silenceable and non-silenceable outputs will turn off following a System Reset.

D.2 Intelligent Sensing Features
Intelligent Sensing features include the following:
• Drift Compensation and Smoothing
• Maintenance Warnings - Three Levels
• Self-optimizing Pre-Alarm
• Detector Sensitivity
• Cooperative Multi-Detector Sensing
D.2.1 Drift Compensation and Smoothing
Drift compensation uses algorithms (U.S. patent pending) that identify and compensate for longterm changes in the analog readings from each smoke detector. (Typically, dirt and dust
accumulation inside the smoke chamber causes long-term changes in detector readings.) Drift
compensation does the following:
• Allows a detector to retain its original ability to detect actual smoke, and resist false alarms,
even as dirt and dust accumulates.
• Reduces maintenance requirements by allowing the control panel to automatically perform
the periodic sensitivity measurements required by NFPA Standard 72.
The software also provides smoothing filters to remove transient noise signals, usually caused by
electrical interference. Different smoothing algorithms are used, depending on the sensitivity
selection of each detector. Refer to Appendix D.4, “Detector Sensitivity Settings”, on page 124 for
more information on detector sensitivity levels.

D.2.2 Maintenance Warnings – Three Levels
The software determines when the drift compensation for a detector reaches an unacceptable level
that can compromise detector performance. When a detector reaches an unacceptable level, the
control panel indicates a maintenance warning. The table below summarizes the three levels of
Intelligent Sensing maintenance warnings:

D.2.3 Self-Optimizing Pre-Alarm
You can set each detector, except FST-851/751 (Heat), for Self-Optimizing Pre-Alarm (PA=1). In
this Self-Optimizing mode, the software measures the normal peak analog readings and sets the
Pre-Alarm level just above these normal peaks. This allows extremely sensitive Pre-Alarm
capability with reasonable protection against non-fire signals. The figure below shows a graphical
representation of the Self-Optimizing Pre-Alarm level:

D.2.4 Detector Sensitivity
The control panel provides nine Sensitivity Levels (Table D.2 on page 124) for alarm detection and
pre-alarm as follows:
• Alarm Sensitivity Levels You can select the sensitivity of a detector from 1-9 (1=highest
sensitivity; 9=lowest sensitivity).
• Pre-Alarm Sensitivity Levels You can select one of nine levels from 1 to 9 (0=no
Pre-Alarm, 1=self-optimizing, 2=highest sensitivity, 9=lowest sensitivity). You can set
Pre-Alarm operation to Action (latching) or Alert (non-latching) and to activate Special
Zones. For instructions on programming, refer to Appendix D.3, “Pre-Alarm”, on page 123.
You can set the sensitivity levels as fixed or programmed for day and night operation.

Intelligent Sensing Applications
D.2.5 Cooperative Multi-Detector Sensing
Cooperative Multi-Detector Sensing is the ability of a smoke detector to consider readings from
nearby detectors in making alarm or pre-alarm decisions. Each detector can include up to two other
detectors in its decision. Without statistical sacrifice in the ability to resist false alarms, Cooperative
Multi-Detector Sensing allows a detector to increase its sensitivity to actual smoke by a factor of
almost 2 to 1. Ion, photo and laser detector types can participate. Cooperative Multi-Detector
Sensing also allows the combination of ionization with photoelectric technology in reaching an
alarm decision. The figure below shows a graph representing Cooperative Multi-Detector Sensing:

D.3 Pre-Alarm
D.3.1 Definition
The Pre-Alarm function is a programmable option which determines the system’s response to realtime detector sensing values above the programmed setting. Use the Pre-Alarm function to get an
early warning of incipient or potential fire conditions. There are two levels of Pre-Alarm:
• Alert (Refer to “Alert Level” below)
• Action (Refer to Appendix D.3.3, “Action Level”, on page 124)
Alert and Action Pre-Alarm settings are set with point programming. Unique Pre-Alarm sensitivity
levels (PA) for individual detectors are listed in Appendix D.4, “Detector Sensitivity Settings”, on
page 124.
The LEDs on detectors polled in FlashScan mode will light steady green when in pre-alarm.
D.3.2 Alert Level
Alert Functions
The control panel software, in addition to checking for alarm levels, checks for Pre-Alarm
thresholds for each addressable, intelligent smoke detector programmed for Pre-Alarm. If a
detector’s real-time sensing level exceeds the programmed Alert threshold, the control panel
indicates a Pre-Alarm condition for the detector. The control panel does the following functions
when a detector reaches pre-alarm level:
• The Pre-Alarm message is sent to the History buffer and to installed printers. The message
is sent (and time stamped) at the time that it first occurred. This historical data could provide
valuable information about the progress of a fire.
• The PRE-ALARM LED flashes and the panel sounder pulses until acknowledged.
• Zone Z000 (general alarm) or any other zone and the System Trouble and System Alarm
relays do not activate.

Intelligent Sensing Applications
Detector Sensitivity Settings
• The Pre-Alarm indication for this detector will restore automatically to normal if its
obscuration reading drops below pre-alarm level.
• A subsequent alarm for this detector also clears the Pre-Alarm indication.
D.3.3 Action Level
Action Functions
If you program a detector for Action Pre-Alarm and the detector reaches a level that exceeds the
programmed Pre-Alarm level, the control panel indicates an Action condition. The control panel
does the following functions when a detector reaches the programmed pre-alarm level:
• The Action message is sent to the History buffer and installed printers. The message is sent
(and time stamped) only at the time that it first occurred. This historical data could provide
valuable information about the progress of a fire.
• The PRE-ALARM LED and panel sounder pulse until acknowledged.
• The zone that is in the tenth position of the zone map for this detector activates. The tenth
zone is the right-most entry on line two of the detector zone map list in the Point
Programming screen. (For more information on detector zone positions, refer to Figure 3.33
and the accompanying text). The tenth zone can be used to control functions of a detector or
group of detectors once the pre-alarm level is reached. Tenth zone activations also allow
ACS annunciation by a detector or group of detectors in Action Pre-Alarm condition.
• Zone Z000 (general alarm) or any other zone and the System Trouble and System Alarm
relays do not activate.
• The Pre-Alarm condition and the zone programmed will latch until system reset, even if the
obscuration reading drops below the pre-alarm level.
• A subsequent alarm condition for this detector clears the Action indication from the LCD
display alarm list.
D.4 Detector Sensitivity Settings
D.4.1 How to Select Pre-Alarm and Alarm Sensitivity
Each detector provides a host of selectable intelligent options. The control panel provides nine
levels of Pre-Alarm (PA:1–PA:9) and Alarm (AL:1–AL:9) in percent per foot obscuration:
• PA:0 no Pre-Alarm selection.
• PA:1 the self-optimizing setting where the control panel selects a suitable Pre-Alarm level
for a detector.
• PA:2–PA:9 the detector Pre-Alarm sensitivity level - with PA:2 the most sensitive and PA:9
the least sensitive.
• AL:1–AL:9 the detector Alarm sensitivity level - with AL:1 the most sensitive and AL:9
the least sensitive.

‡
1% max. on CLIP. Larger figures may display.
** The use of alarm sensitivities below 0.50% obscuration per foot requires a 90 day test to ensure that the environment for the detectors is suitable for the
higher sensitivity setting. (Refer to “To Test Detectors Set Below 0.50% Obscuration per Foot” on page 126.)
†† For Acclimate detectors installed in Canada: Use only the alarm settings of AL:1 or AL:2.
‡‡ Refer to the beam detector manual to determine the alarm settings: they are a function of the distance between the detector and its reflector.
There is no Prealarm for beam detectors in CLIP mode.
*** AL:6 and PA:6 are not available in CLIP mode.
****Within the 10 minute signature confirmation delay period, if there is a detection of another fire signature (Carbon Monoxide, Infrared
or Thermal) it overrides the 10 minute confirmation time.
D.4.2 To Test Detectors Set Below 0.50% Obscuration per Foot
Using alarm sensitivities below 0.50% obscuration per foot requires a 90-day test to ensure that the
detector environment is suitable for the higher sensitivity setting. To meet Notifier and
Underwriters Laboratory requirements, test each detector planned to operate below 0.50%/ft
obscuration as follows:
1.
Set the detector as follows:
Step
Action
1
Initially set to the 0.50% obscuration per foot Alarm level.
2
Set the Pre-Alarm level to the desired final Alarm sensitivity.
3
Set the Pre-Alarm to Alert mode (non-latching).
2.
Operate detectors continuously for 90 days with all environmental factors (such as,
temperature, humidity, air flow, occupancy, and so on) similar to the intended application for
the detectors. Record all events for each tested detector with an electronic History buffer or a
printout.
3.
At the end of the 90-day test: An authorized Notifier representative, or an end user trained by
an authorized Notifier representative must inspect the results of the test. If the test results show
no alarms or pre-alarms for the tested detectors, reprogram the fire alarm system to set the
Alarm sensitivity to the more sensitive Pre-Alarm level of the test.

VALUES:
The screen displays the Alarm and Prealarm values that are in effect when read status is
requested. For example, if occupied settings are in effect, occupied values will display
121% OF ALARM - This field gives the detector reading as it relates to its preprogrammed
alarm level value (indicated in the next line on the screen). The example above shows the
detector exceeding the alarm level by 21%.
145% OF PREALARM - This field gives the detector reading as it relates to its
preprogrammed prealarm level value (indicated in the next line on the screen). The example
above shows the detector exceeding the prealarm level by 45%.
If the detector is an Alert heat detector, the value is indicated by a temperature reading
(example: 148 DEGREES F).
Line 12
The screen displays the Alarm and Prealarm levels that are in effect when read status is
requested. For example, if unoccupied settings are in effect, they will display.
ALARM: 6=1.66% - Six is the preprogrammed alarm level value for this detector: its value is
1.66%, indicating the percent per foot obscuration value assigned to level 6.
PREALARM: 3=0.47% - Three is the preprogrammed alarm level value for this detector: its
value is 0.47%, indicating the percent per foot obscuration value assigned to level 3.
Line 13
ACTION/STATUS: NONE/VERY CLEAN - This displays the maintenance status of the
device. The message that appears in this field depends on the drift compensation value. A
detector will automatically compensate for environmental contaminants and other factors over
time, until the tolerance value has been exceeded. The FACP will signal a trouble condition
when this level has been reached. Refer to the following table for messages and required
action.
Message
Drift Compensation %
Description
None/Very Clean
Less than 50
No action necessary. The detector readings are near
ideal.
None/Fairly Clean
50 - 69
No action necessary. The detector will activate at the
selected sensitivity level.
Needs Cleaning
70 - 79
Clean the detector soon. The detector may cause a
false alarm because it has reached the drift
compensation tolerance value.
Needs Immediate Cleaning
80 - 100
Clean immediately! The detector is a false alarm risk.
The drift compensation tolerance value has been
exceeded.

PEAKS: 56% - This value represents the highest percent per foot obscuration reading taken by
this detector. It can be a historical figure, and does not necessarily represent the highest reading
for this particular alarm. Re-initializing the detector would reset this value to zero.
VERIFY COUNT: 02 - This displays the number of times the detector has gone into alarm.
This count aids in differentiating false alarms from actual alarms by showing repeated alarm
events that have come into the device. In this example, the detector has gone into alarm two
times since the verification count was begun. The FACP will signal a trouble condition when
the verify count exceeds 20.

Appendix E: CBE: Zones and Equations
CBE (Control-By-Event) is a software function that provides a means to program a variety of
output responses based on various initiating events. The control panel operates CBE through lists of
zones. A zone becomes listed when it is added to a point’s zone map through point programming.
• Each input point (detector, monitor module) can list up to ten zones. Allowable zone types
are general zone, releasing zone, and special zone.
• Each output point (control module) can list up to ten zones. Allowable zone types are
general zone, logic zone, releasing zone, special zone, and trouble zone.
• Output points can list zone Z000 (general alarm). Non-Alarm or Supervisory points do not
activate zone Z000 (general alarm).
Networked CBE, or CCBE (Cooperative Control-By-Event), provides CBE initiating-event/outputresponse relationships over the network through general, logic, and/or trouble zones. One of these
zones, programmed into the zone maps of points on this panel and points on other nodes, will create
network cause-and-effect relationships based on the type and content of the zone.
E.1 Zones
There are four types of zones that may be listed to a point for CBE purposes.
Zone Type
Description/Function
General Zone
A general zone is used to link input and output devices. When an input device activates, any general zone in its
zone map will be active, and any output device that has an active general zone in its map will be active. General
zones can be used as arguments in logic equations.
Zone Z000 is a general alarm zone: those points listing Z000 in their zone map participate in a general alarm.
The panel will support up to 1000 general zones, designated as Z0 through Z999. General zones can be used in
CCBE applications when a node number is entered before the zone number.
Logic Zone
A logic zone consists of a logic equation. Whenever the logic equation becomes true, all output points mapped to
the logic zone will activate.
The panel will support up to 1000 logic zones, designated as ZL1 through ZL1000. Logic zones can be used in
CCBE applications when a node number is entered before the zone number.
Trouble Zone
A trouble zone consists of a trouble equation. Whenever the trouble equation becomes true, all output points
mapped to the trouble zone will activate.
The panel will support up to one hundred trouble zones, designated as ZT001 through ZT100. Trouble zones can
be used in CCBE applications when a node number is entered before the zone number.
NOTE: Trouble zones can be used only in CCBE applications between NFS2-3030, NFS-3030 and NFS-640
FACPs. Trouble zones will not activate with other combinations.
Releasing Zone
A releasing zone is used to control a releasing operation.
The panel will support up to ten releasing zones, designated as ZR00 through ZR09.

Table E.1 Zone Table
E.2 Equations
Logic and Trouble Equations can define complex relationships between input and output devices.
The FACP supports up to 1000 Logic Equations, each designated with a Logic Zone number of
ZL1 through ZL1000. It also supports up to 100 Trouble Zones, each designated with a Trouble
Zone number of ZT001 through ZT100. Once created, these equations can be included in
input/output zone mapping.
1.
Equations will always begin with a logic function. The function set is listed below.
2.
Equations will be a maximum of 80 characters long, including parentheses and commas.
3.
Logic and Trouble Equations can have a maximum of 10 logic functions unless a time delay
function is used: a time delay function must be the only function in its equation.
4.
Equations are evaluated after all other devices have been evaluated.
5.
One logic equation can be used as an argument in another logic equation, or one trouble
equation can be used in another trouble equation, only if the equation used has previously been
evaluated; that is, only zones with a lower number than the zone currently being edited can be
used as arguments.
6.
A logic function can have a maximum of 20 arguments (inclusive start and stop address).
7.
Maximum for the delay timer is 23 hours, 59 minutes, 59 seconds (23:59:59).
Equations are entered using Point Programming for logic or trouble zones. Refer to these sections
in this manual for instruction. The panel will check for errors after the user has entered the
complete equation. Possible errors are too many or two few parentheses, too many or two few
arguments inside the parentheses, unknown function and unknown device type.

Table E.2 Table of Arguments
E.2.2 Logic Equations
Logic Functions
•
The “AND” Operator
Requires that each argument be active.
Example: AND(Z02,Z05,L2D12)
All three arguments in the equation must be active for the logic zone to be activated.
•
The “OR” Operator
Requires that any argument be active
Example: OR(Z02,Z05,L2D12)
If any one of the three arguments in the equation is active the logic zone will be activated.
•
The “NOT” Operator
Inverts the state of the argument (activated to deactivated OR deactivated to activated).
Example: NOT(Z02)
The logic zone will remain activated until the argument activates.
If the argument activates the logic zone will deactivate.
•
The “ONLY1” Operator
Requires that only one argument be active.
Example: ONLY1(Z02,Z05,Z09)
If only one of the arguments activates the logic zone will be activated.
•
The “ANYX” Operator
Requires that the amount of arguments specified by the number preceding the arguments be
active.
Example: ANYX(2,Z02,Z05,Z09)
If any two or more of the arguments are in alarm the output point will be activated.
The X amount may be a value from 1 through 9.
•
The “XZONE” Operator
Requires that any combination of two or more input devices programmed to a zone be active.
NOTE: Local General Zones only.
NFS2-3030 Programming Manual — P/N 52545:K1 03/20/2012
133
CBE: Zones and Equations
Equations
Example: XZONE(Z02)
If any combination of two or more initiating devices that have been mapped to this software
zone come into alarm, then outputs mapped to this zone will activate.
•
The “RANGE” Operator
Each argument within the range must conform to the requirements of the governing function.
The range limit is 20 consecutive arguments.
Example: AND(RANGE(Z1,Z20))
Zone 1 through Zone 20 must all be active to activate the logic zone.
•
The “DIS(point argument)” Operator
Requires that the point argument be disabled for the operator to go active.
•
The “PRE(point argument)” Operator
Requires that the point argument be in prealarm for the operator to go active.
Example: AND(L1D1,PRE(L1D2))
The detector at address L1D1 must be active and the detector at L1D2 must be in prealarm for
this equation to go active.
•
The “SUP(point argument)” Operator
Requires that the point argument be in an active supervisory state for the operator to go active.
Example: OR(L1D1,SUP(L1M1))
The detector at address L1D1 must be active, or the module at L1M1 must be in an active
supervisory state, for the equation to go active.
•
The “FIRE(point argument)” Operator
Requires that the point argument be in an active fire alarm state for the operator to go active.
Example: AND(L1D1,FIRE(L1M1),FIRE(L1M2))
The detector at address L1D1 must be active, and the modules at L1M1 and L1M2 must be in
an active fire alarm state, for the equation to go active.
•
The “NON(point argument)” Operator
Requires that the point argument be in an active non-alarm state for the operator to go active.
Example: AND(L1D1,NON(L1M1))
The detector at address L1D1 must be active, and the module at address L1M1 must be in an
active non-fire alarm state, for the equation to go active.
•
The “SEC(point argument)” Operator
Requires that the point argument be in an active security alarm state for the operator to go
active.
Example: AND(L1M1,SEC(L1M2))
The module at address L1M1 must be active, and the module at address L1M2 must be in an
active security alarm state, for the equation to go active.
Time-based Functions
The panel supports three time-based functions: DEL, SDEL, and TIM. Special rules apply to an
equation containing a time-based function:
• Only one time-based function may be used in an equation.
• The time-based function must appear only once, as the first entry of the equation.
• It may not be nested within parentheses in the equation.
• Logic functions may be used in an equation that begins with a DEL or SDEL time-based
function: however, they must appear within parentheses following the time-based function.
Delay and duration times are in 24-hour format (HHMMSS); the allowable range is 00:00:00 to
23:59:59.
The “DEL” Function
134
NFS2-3030 Programming Manual — P/N 52545:K1 03/20/2012
Equations
CBE: Zones and Equations
Used for delayed operation.
Example: DEL(HH.MM.SS, HH.MM.SS,AND(L1M1,L1M140))
• The first HH.MM.SS is the delay time, the second HH.MM.SS is the duration time. If the
argument - AND(L1M1,L1M140) - in the example above activates, the function becomes
true after the argument has been active for the delay time, and continues to be true for the
duration time as long as the argument stays active. If the argument goes inactive during the
delay time or the duration time, the function reverts to false and the timing would begin all
over again if reactivated.
• If duration time of zero is entered (00.00.00), the equation will evaluate true when the delay
time expires if the argument remains active throughout the delay time period.
• If no duration or delay is specified, then the function will follow the input argument,
indicating true while it is active and false when it is inactive. DEL assumes a value of false
on reset.
The “SDEL” Function
A latched version of the DEL function.
Example: SDEL(HH.MM.SS, HH.MM.SS,L1M140)
• The first HH.MM.SS is the delay time, the second HH.MM.SS is the duration time. If the
argument (L1M140 in the example above) activates, the function becomes true after the
delay time, and will remain active for the duration even if the argument becomes inactive
during either the delay or duration time.
• If delay time of zero is entered (00.00.00), the equation will evaluate true as soon as the
argument (L1M140) activates and will remain that way for the specified duration, even if
the argument becomes inactive during that time.
• If no duration or delay time is specified, then the argument will not deactivate until reset,
even if the argument becomes inactive.
The “TIM” Operator
The TIM function is used to specify activation on specific days of the week or year.
Examples:
TIM(7-11-06) will evaluate as true for 24 hours starting at midnight (00:00:00) on July 11,
2006.
TIM(MO,TU,WE,TH,FR,08:00:00,23:00:00) will evaluate as true at 8:00 AM and remain true
until 11:00 PM (23:00) for the list of days supplied.
TIM(MO,TU,WE,TH,FR,08:00:00) will evaluate as true at 8:00 AM and remain true until
23:59:59 of the current day for the list of days supplied.
TIM(TU,07:45:00,18:30:00) will evaluate as true every Tuesday between 7:45 AM until 6:30
PM.
TIM(MO,TU,WE,TH,FR) will evaluate as true from Monday morning at 12:01 AM until
Friday evening at 11:59:00 PM.
Logic Equation Syntax Example
OR(AND(L1D1,L1D4),AND(L2D6,L2M3,NOT(L2M4)),ANYX(2,L1M13,L1M14,L1M15))
Equation begins with a logic function - OR
67 Characters (maximum of 80) - includes parentheses and commas.
5 Logic Functions (maximum of 10) - OR, AND, AND, NOT and ANYX.
8 Arguments (maximum of 20 per logic function) - L1D1,L1D4,L2D6,L2M3,L2M4…
The equation contains no spaces.
Evaluating an Equation
To evaluate an equation, start from the innermost part of the equation and work outwards. For this
equation to evaluate TRUE and thus turn on any output mapped to it, the following conditions must
be met:

E.2.3 Trouble Equations
A trouble equation follows the same syntax rules as the logic equation. The system allows up to a
hundred trouble equations, ZT001 through ZT100. It differs from a logic equation in the following
manner:
•
Equations evaluate as true when the arguments go into trouble.
•
Argument entries may consist of system trouble codes. Refer to Appendix H, “System
Troubles” for a listing of these codes.
Examples:
AND(L1M149,L2M110) will evaluate as true when both arguments go into trouble.
OR(ZT049,ZT050) will evaluate as true when either argument goes into trouble.

NFS2-3030 Programming Manual — P/N 52545:K1 03/20/2012
Appendix F: Detector Initialization
F.1 Overview
The control panel automatically performs a detector initialization routine when a detector is added
or changed.
The detector initialization routine takes approximately 2.5 minutes. During this time, the detector
being initialized does not perform fire protection functions. The LEDs of detectors polled in
FlashScan mode will latch a steady green while initializing, and return to blinking green when
initialization is over.
While initializing a detector, follow these guidelines:
• Make sure the detector is free of residual smoke during detector initialization.
• Do not test a detector during detector initialization.
NOTE: The control panel only performs detector initialization if it senses that a detector was
removed for at least 15 seconds.
!
WARNING:
IF ANY DETECTOR IS REPLACED WITH A DIFFERENT TYPE OF DETECTOR (FOR EXAMPLE,
A LASER DETECTOR IS REPLACED WITH A PHOTOELECTRIC DETECTOR), THE CONTROL
PANEL MUST BE PROGRAMMED IMMEDIATELY WITH THE NEW DETECTOR TYPE CODE.
FAILURE TO DO SO CAN CAUSE INCORRECT CONTROL PANEL OPERATION, INCLUDING
FALSE ALARMS.
F.2 To Replace a Detector with a Different Type of Detector
If one type of detector is replaced with a different type of detector, the control panel must
immediately be programmed for the new detector type. To replace a detector, follow these steps:
Step
Action
1
Delete the old detector point from FACP programming using the “Delete Point” screen on page
page 66.
2
Physically remove the old detector.
3
Enter point programming for this point and change the Type and FlashScan Code Label to the values
appropriate for the new detector. (Refer to Section 3.4.1, “Detector Point”, on page 44 for
programming instructions).
4
Physically install the new detector. Initialization will occur automatically

137
Appendix G: Type Codes
G.1 What Are Type Codes?
Type Codes are software selections for initiating devices (detectors and monitor modules) and
output devices (control modules and NACs). Some Type Codes are self-explanatory; that is, the
Type Code matches the function of the device, such as a “Monitor” for a monitor module,
“Smoke(photo)” for a photoelectric detector, and so on. Type codes also provide special functions,
such as activating switches, solenoids, and control panel functions. FlashScan devices are assigned
a special FlashScan code.
G.2 How to Select a Type Code
Type Codes are selected at the Point Programming screens. Refer to the Point Program section of
this manual for instructions.
This appendix contains detailed descriptions of Type Codes for input and output devices, as listed

brought into the protected area through the ventilation system. Poor air
quality will lower the sensitivity of all FSL-751 detectors on the SLC.
The detector sensitivity, however, remains within approved limits
(always less than 1% obscuration per foot).
Note: A reference detector still functions as a smoke detector, but the detector sensitivity level should be set to the least sensitive level—AL:9 and PA:9

NFS2-3030 Programming Manual — P/N 52545:K1 03/20/2012
Glossary
0.1 Glossary
This section contains descriptions of terms essential to
know when programming the control panel.
Alarm History See History buffer.
Alarm Verification Timer A user-defined global
software timer function that can reduce the number of
nuisance alarms. When you select Alarm Verification
for a detector, the control panel delays an alarm signal
for a user-specified time period. (The control panel
ignores the Alarm Verification Timer if it detects
another alarm during the verification period.)
Argument An argument is a discrete part of a logic
function used in a CBE logic or trouble equation. It can
consist of panel/SLC addresses for detectors, modules,
zones, special function zones, logic or trouble equations.
Auto Silence Timer A user-defined global software
timer that functions like pressing the signal silence key.
The control panel silences all active outputs
programmed as silenceable once the timer has reached
the selected time. For example, if 20 minutes is selected,
when the timer reaches 20 minutes the control panel
turns off all active outputs programmed as silenceable.
Autoprogram A software routine that directs the
control panel to identify and automatically load SLCconnected devices into the program with default values
for all parameters. The Autoprogram Finds and displays
all new or missing intelligent detectors and modules-while ignoring devices already installed in memory--so
you can edit default option selections. Typically, you
Autoprogram the control panel as a first step in a new
installation, or to add devices.
Control module An addressable module that a)
switches power to a Style Y or Style Z NAC; or b)
functions as a Form-C control relay.
CBE (Control-by-Event) A programming method that
lets you map inputs and outputs to provide a variety of
output responses based on various initiating conditions
(events).
CLIP poll - Classic Loop Interface Protocol - CLIP - is
standard polling of each intelligent device (as
differentiated from FlashScan poll, a method of group
polling described below).
DCC (Display and Control Center) - Term for a
display location, programmed to participate in DCC,
when it has control of Acknowledge, Signal Silence,
System Reset and Drill functions.
NFS2-3030 Programming Manual — P/N 52545:K1 03/20/2012
Drift Compensation An algorithm which permits the
maintenance of a constant smoke detector sensitivity by
accounting for environmental contaminants and other
factors.
Download A function for loading a system program
from a file on a personal computer and storing the
program in system memory of the control panel. Also
see Veri•Fire.
FlashScan poll - a patented system (US Patent Number
5,539,389) that enhances the speed of communication
between analog intelligent devices. Communication is
in a grouped fashion. When one of the devices within
the group has new information, the panel CPU stops the
group poll and concentrates on single points.
History buffer The control panel maintains a history
buffer of the last 4000 events, each with a time and date
stamp. History events include all alarms, troubles,
operator actions, and programming entries. The control
panel also maintains a 1000-event Alarm History buffer,
which consists of the 1000 most recent alarm events
from the 4000-event history buffer.
latching An attribute of a device that keeps it in an
active state until the condition causing the activation is
corrected and the panel is reset.
Missing device A device that exists in a program, but is
not found by the control panel during Autoprogram,
typically because the device is disconnected.
NAC (Notification Appliance Circuit) A circuit or path
directly connected to a notification appliance device (a
fire alarm system component--such as a bell, speaker,
strobe, and so on--that produces an audible output, a
visual output, or both). On this panel, NACs can be
transponder points or control modules.
New device A device connected to the control panel,
but not in program memory.
Non-latching An attribute of a device that follows the
state of the fire alarm system. That is, if a device is
non-latching, it returns to its normal state automatically
when the condition clears.
Notification Appliance Circuit see NAC.
Obscuration A reduction in the atmospheric
transparency caused by smoke, usually expressed in
percent per foot.
Output circuit A control module connected to the
SLC.
153
Glossary
Point A system memory address occupied by an
addressable SLC device, Software Zone, or annunciator.
For example, the control panel considers “L01M102”, a
module on loop 1 at address 102, as a point.
Panel sounder The piezo sounder on control panel,
that pulses when troubles and alarms occur.
Primary zone The zone in the first position of a point’s
zone map. The FACP looks at this zone for certain
functions, such as some Cross Zone activations or Walk
Test participation.
Silence Inhibit Timer A user-defined timer that
disables the signal silence key function for the
programmed time (0-300 seconds) when a fire alarm
occurs. All subsequent alarms can be silenced
immediately.
SLC (Signaling Line Circuit) A physical wire loop
used to connect addressable detectors and modules to
the control panel.
General Zone A label, internal to the fire alarm
system, assigned to a group of addressable devices.
Switch Inhibit A software function that allows the
programming of control modules and NACs so an
operator cannot manually activate NACs. With Switch
Inhibit enabled, an operator cannot manually activate
the NACs from the control panel.
Type Code specifies what action the control panel takes
when the point activates. For example, when a monitor
module with evacuate as a Type Code activates, the
control panel activates all outputs, as if someone pressed
the drill key.
Upload A function for making a copy of a system
program and storing the program as a file on a personal
computer. Also see VeriFire™ Tools Programming
Utility.
View (Very Intelligent Early Warning) System A smoke
detection system, consisting of the NFS2-3030 control
panel and intelligent laser detectors, that provides very
early warning of smoldering fires.
VeriFire™ Tools Program Utility A software utility
for uploading and downloading a system program
between a personal computer and the control panel
through the EIA-232 port.
Walk Test A feature that lets a single (qualified)
maintenance person test a fire alarm control panel and
initiating devices without causing the control panel to
enter into an alarm state.
Zone Map SLC inputs (detectors and monitor
modules) and outputs (control modules) provide for up
to ten zone selections for CBE.
System Normal message A message that displays on
the second line of the LCD display during normal
operation of the control panel.
System Reset Pressing the System Reset fixed function
key will clear all latched alarms and other events if the
initiating condition is gone. LEDs associated with these
events will turn off. Unacknowledged events will not
prevent reset from functioning. If alarms or other offnormal events exist after reset, they will resound the
system. The System Reset key will not function if the
programmable Silence Inhibit timer is running.
The System Reset key will not immediately silence
active outputs. If the Control-by-event programming for
the output evaluates false after reset, the output will
deactivate. (Typically this is 30 seconds local, 60
seconds network.)
Terminal Interface EIA-232 bidirectional serial port
used for upload and download functions.
Tracking An attribute of a device that allows it to enter
an active state when a condition causes its activation,
then to return from an active to an inactive state when
