TWINFLEX®pro Control Panel User Guide
Understanding the Equipment
What is TWINFLEX® pro?
TWINFLEX®pro is the name of the range of fire alarm control panels that use the associated TWINFLEX®
Multipoint and ASD devices which together form the fire alarm system installed in the premises. Devices may
connected over up to 8 zones, depending on the capacity of the panel. 2 zone, 4 zone and 8 zone versions
are currently available.
Advantages of the TWINFLEX®pro system are significantly reduced cabling costs, enhanced flexibility and
flexible expansion capacity if required.
The TWINFLEX®pro system is an intelligent ‘2-wire’ system utilising a conventional type cabling format. The
system is classed as ‘Analogue non-addressable’ due to the architecture used within the design. All field
devices including sounders can be connected to the zone via a common 2-core screened cable. The devices
communicate with the control panel using the ‘TWINFLEX®’ data protocol.
The TWINFLEX®pro panel is able to recognise and separately identify between smoke detector, heat detector
(this feature is only be available with the ASD type of detectors, not the Multipoint) and a manual call point
alarm. The panel also monitors each zone for detector head removal, device fault, ‘End of line’ fault and open
or short circuit fault.
The TWINFLEX®pro control panel also provides two monitored outputs that may be configured as conventional
sounder circuits or conventional 24V monitored relay circuits. A volt free common fire relay and a volt free
common fault relay are also provided.
There are also two multifunction latching/non-latching inputs and one monitored input. These inputs are
programmable with options such as ‘Technical Alarm’ (sometimes known as a Class Change) and ‘Remote
fire input’ etc.
What is Multipoint and ASD?
This is the name of the automatic detectors used in the TWINFLEX®pro installation. The Multipoint and ASD
are a unique devices, which provide several modes of detection & sensitivity options within a single device,
enabling it to be easily configured for the application. One detector can function as a smoke detector or heat
detector (or both), and with various levels of sensitivity to suit the environment.
The Multipoint and ASD detectors may also incorporate an integral sounder and strobe for general alarm
annunciation or local warning as required, an ‘End of Line’ device for cable fault detection and the ability to
interface a variety of other systems into the TWINFLEX®pro system.

TWINFLEX®pro Control Panel User Guide
System Configuration
The detectors and call points are arranged in zones to enable the approximate location of a fire alarm to be
identified. The number of zones depends on the size and the layout of the premises, and is limited to 8 zones
per control panel. There should be a chart or drawing provided with the system indicating the area and layout
of the zones – ensure that you are familiar with the zone layout so that appropriate action can be taken in the
event of a fire alarm.
The control panel display may also give you a zone number, a zone description and a device type for the
device which has operated.
The system may be interfaced with the building services, e.g., the air conditioning may be shut down when the
alarm sounds. Make sure that you know what happens when the fire alarm operates as this can affect routine
system testing.
The TWINFLEX®pro control panel also incorporates an integral power supply unit with charger and requires 2
x 12V 3.3Ah batteries to provide up to a maximum of 72 hour standby times, depending on total panel
loading.
Unlike most conventional fire alarm systems, which require separate pairs of cables for detector zones and
sounder circuits, the TWINFLEX®pro system requires one 2-core screened cable for each zone to
accommodate both detection devices and sounders. Furthermore sounders are incorporated within the
detector to reduce system components and simplify installation.
What to do if . . .
The fire alarm sounds;
CARRY OUT THE PRESCRIBED FIRE DRILL
When it is safe to do so silence the alarms and reset the system, having first established the cause of the
alarm (refer to Operation).
The buzzer sounds;
If the buzzer sounds without the alarm sounders operating it is likely to be a fault or other abnormal condition.
Make a note of all illuminated LEDs and displayed messages, record the time that the condition occurred (if
known), and other events within the building, eg., power failure, contractors working, etc., (Refer to
troubleshooting). Call the service company with as much information as possible.

User Responsibilities
Introduction
The responsible person is required under BS5839 to undertake certain tasks with respect to the testing and
maintenance of the fire alarm system. The responsible person should also ensure that written procedures are
in place for the actions to be taken by the occupants in a fire condition, and that staff required to operate the
system have received adequate training. In a small building the fire procedures can be quite simple, but when
larger premises are involved the fire procedures can become more complex and may involve the appointment
of fire wardens, reporting procedures, various assembly points, etc.
The responsible person is also required to liaise with the building maintenance personnel to ensure that their
work does not impair or otherwise affect the operation of the fire alarm system, and to ensure that a clear
space is maintained in the vicinity of detectors, and call points remain unobstructed and conspicuous.
Routine Testing
The responsible person should also ensure that the following routine testing is carried out. If there is a link to a
remote monitoring centre it will be necessary to advise the centre prior to a test, or use the control panel
facilities to isolate the link. On larger systems it may be necessary to isolate building services interfaces to
avoid disruption to the occupants. In any case the panel should provide audible and visual indication that parts
of the system are disabled.
Daily
Check that the panel indicates normal operation and that any fault is recorded. Also check that the recorded
faults have been dealt with.
Weekly
At least one detector or call point should be operated to test the ability of the control equipment to receive a
signal and sound the alarm.
In practice it is far easier for the user to activate a manual call point, rather than a detector which requires
special equipment. A different device should be tested each time if possible, such that each zone on the
system is tested at least once in a 13 week period.
The results should be recorded in the log book.
Quarterly
‘The responsible person should ensure that every three months the following check is carried out by a
competent person’
In other words the system should be checked by a fire alarm service organisation. This may be the system
installer or an approved maintenance company, and is normally arranged via a maintenance agreement which
specifies the number of visits and the level of service. The agreement should also cover non-maintenance
visits, e.g. call outs to attend faults, etc.
The standard specifies a number of maintenance tasks which include a visual inspection of the installation to
ensure that there are no alterations or obstructions which could affect the operation of the system, and
functional checks to confirm the operation of the system.
Any defects should be recorded in the log book and reported to the responsible person. A certificate of testing
should also be completed and given to the responsible person.
7
TWINFLEX®pro Control Panel User Guide
Annual
The requirements of the annual test are similar to the quarterly test except that each device on the system
should be tested. Different service organisations may undertake device testing on the same visit, ie. One
major service and three minor service visits per year, or they may test a percentage of the devices on each
visit so that they are all tested within the 12 month period.
Action by the user after a fire
Advise the servicing company and arrange for the system to be tested by them. A certificate of testing should
be issued to confirm the system operation following the inspection and any remedial work that is necessary.
Action by the user after any false alarm
The user can assist the servicing company in the identification of false alarms by observing the following:



Always make a note of all illuminated indicators and messages displayed at the control panel.
Try and identify the activated device, i.e. Do not reset the system until the area of the incident has
been inspected.
Record any other incidents occurring at the same time which could affect the system, e.g. power
supply failure, building works, etc.
The service organisation will be more likely to trace the false alarm if the above information is available.
Action by the user following a fault
When a fault is reported by the control panel, the user should note all illuminated LEDs and messages
displayed, and the circumstances at the time the fault occurred, and report to the servicing company.
The service company will be able to advise if the system is still able to respond to a fire alarm or whether extra
vigilance should be observed until the fault is rectified. Faults should not be left unreported.

BUZZER SILENCED
Yellow
During a system fault, dependent upon what caused the fault, all relays will be off, all zones will be powered down, the
zone, power fault and disabled LEDs will be on continuously. If any output is set to sounder then the Sounder LED will
also be on continuously.
To recover from this the panel should be powered down for approximately 2 minutes and then re-powered. This should
be done by a competent person and entered in the log at the end of this manual. If the panel appears to be
operational, then a reset will clear the fault and should be entered into the log at the end of this manual.
The only exception to this is the write enable switch. In access levels 1 and 2, if the switch is on, a system fault will be
indicated on the LEDs and display, the fault relay will be off but it has no effect on the operation of the panel and
serves as a reminder to the Engineer to switch off write enable before leaving the panel.
If the display is blank and no LEDs are showing, then either the unit is not powered or the mains has failed and the
batteries are lower than 21V. To recover from the low battery shut-off, down power completely and check the batteries
are no lower than 21V and then power up the system.
If the batteries are lower than 21V, then they should be replaced or monitored during initial charging to ensure they
recharge correctly. This could take several hours.
If the batteries are below 18V they should be replaced as they will have lost much of their capacity and are unlikely to
recover. This could leave the system with no power under mains fail conditions.

FIRE ALARM SYSTEM NOTICE
To Enable the Control Panel Keys
You may gain access to the fire alarm controls by inserting the key turning
¼ turn or by entering the USER code (default 8737). The ‘Controls
Enabled’ LED should then be illuminated. If after entering the code further
action is not taken the ‘Controls Enabled’ light will time out eventually.
To disable the control panel keys turn the key switch off.
When disabled the ‘Controls Enabled’ LED should then be extinguished.
If a code was used, press ‘ESC’ enough times to return to normal operation (NORM in top left corner of display).
To prevent unauthorised operation the controls should be kept disabled and the key/codes kept secure under
the control of the responsible person.
To Manually Operate the Fire Alarm Sounders
Enable the controls and then press ‘SOUND ALARMS’.
To silence the alarm sounders press ‘SILENCE ALARMS’.
Following a Fire Alarm Operation
The red ‘FIRE’ LEDs will illuminate, the fire alarms and the internal
buzzer will operate as programmed. Take appropriate action as defined
by the emergency plan for the premises.
To silence the alarm press ‘SILENCE ALARMS’, then establish the cause
of the alarm and enter the details in the log book.
Reset any Manual Call Points which may have been operated, or if a
detector has been operated be sure that the cause of the alarm has been
removed, before resetting the system by pressing ‘RESET SYSTEM’.
Following a Fault Condition
The appropriate fault LEDs will illuminate. The internal buzzer will sound.
To mute the internal buzzer press ‘SILENCE BUZZER’. Investigate and
rectify the appropriate fault (competent persons). Once the fault has been
rectified the fault indication will clear automatically.

FIRE ALARM USER NOTICE
Note
The Fire alarm system installed in this building has ‘Alarm Confirmation’ technology to help eliminate
false alarms.
Please read and understand the following information in order to make the most use of the
system.
Operation
When the detector within your area activates it will initially only operate the sounders within your
own area for a predetermined ‘Confirmation’ time. This time is given below.
At the end of the ‘Confirmation’ time the system will check the detector again to see if the activation
has cleared. If so then the sounders will silence and no further action need be taken.
If, however, the detector is still activated then the entire system will go into alarm, operating all the
sounders on the system.
Action Required
If you think that you may have accidentally set off the fire alarms then check the following:
If the fire alarm within your area only is sounding, then check your own area for the cause of the
alarm. If this proves to be a false alarm due to dust, cooking fumes, steam, cigarette smoke, etc,
then clear the smoke/steam from the area in order to allow the system to reset itself after a few
minutes. If this happens then no further action is required. If the sounders in the communal areas
are also sounding, then follow the buildings fire regulations for evacuation.
If you discover a genuine fire, then follow the buildings fire procedures for evacuation, activating the
nearest Fire Alarm manual call point on the way out if the alarms are not yet sounding.
Do not attempt to put out the fire unless it is safe to do so.
Further Information
Further information will be located adjacent to the Main Fire Alarm Control Panel, or may be
obtained from either the person responsible for building maintenance or from the Fire Alarm
Company responsible for maintaining the Fire Alarm System.
