1. System Overview
The Clymac ZM2 system is a microprocessor based fire detection and alarm system. The control
panel accepts signals from call points, smoke sensors, heat sensors and interface units. It also has
outputs for audible and visual alarm devices together with auxiliary outputs for plant shutdown
control.
1.1 Addressable devices
Smoke detectors, heat detectors, call points and interface units are all “addressable” devices.
This means that the control panel is able to individually identify a fire or fault alarm from each
device. Each device is therefore allocated a number or “address” when the system is
commissioned. Each address is then programmed with one line of ten characters and a second
line of 16 characters for the text label, which will in turn be displayed on the control panel’s text
display in the event of an alarm.
An addressable system therefore enables the exact source of the incident to be identified quickly
reducing the search time and improving the chances of containing the incident.
1.2 Analogue detection
The ZM2 system utilises analogue detection techniques to detect fire and fault incidents. An
analogue system is a very accurate method of detection and monitors the rate at which the
activity within a detector's sensing chamber changes. An analogue detection system therefore
reduces the occurrence of false alarms and increases detection performance of a real fire. It will
also identify faulty and dirty detectors thus reducing the cost of maintenance activities.
1.3 Controls and indications
All of the fire and fault occurrences are displayed on the control panel’s liquid crystal display
together with the text label when relevant
1.4 Continuous monitoring
The ZM2 system provides the user with total peace of mind. All of the control panel functions
and system devices are continuously monitored for their correct operation.
The cable used to interconnect all of the detectors, call points, interface units and sounders is also
continuously monitored for failure.
2. User Responsibilities
Daily
The British Standard code of practice for fire detection and alarm system; BS5839 Part 1
states that the system should be inspected daily to ensure that it is indicating a normal condition
and that any previously indicated fault/warning condition has received appropriate attention. It
recommends entry into the log book provided of all system events for future reference.
Weekly
At weekly intervals a different fire detector or manual call point should be tested. Any
entry should be made in the log book quoting the particular trigger device that has been used to
initiate the test.
The test should be performed at a regular time to avoid confusion between a test and a genuine
alarm.
Quarterly
At quarterly intervals the system should be thoroughly inspected and tested by a trained
engineer. The quarterly test would normally be part of an annual maintenance agreement taken
out by the end user with a trained alarm specialist.

Operating instructions
3.1 Logging on to the fire alarm system
Before you can operate any of the system commands, you must
first log on to the fire alarm system. The password you use to log
on to the fire alarm system determines which command menus
you are allowed to use. The password levels are described as
follows:
•
The level 2 password lets you use the level 2 command
menus
•
The level 3 password lets you use the level 3 command
menus
•
The level 4 password lets you use the level 4 command
menus
Note: The level 1 command menus do not require a password.
The control panel continues to let you use the command menus
for the password you entered until you log on with a different

Operating instructions
3.12 Switching fire alarm sensitivity
Fire alarm sensors have two separate alarm sensitivity settings.
The alarm sensitivity setting determines how easily fire alarm
sensors can sense a fire alarm condition. Typically, the primary
alarm sensitivity setting is programmed for daytime operation
and the alternate alarm sensitivity setting is programmed for
night time and weekend operation.
In most applications, a time control is used to automatically
switch fire alarm sensors over to their alternate sensitivity
setting. When the time control is restored, fire alarm sensitivity
is automatically switched back to the primary sensitivity settings.
You can override the sensitivity settings in effect using the
Alternate Sensitivity command on the Activate menu and
Primary Sensitivity command on the Restore menu.
Note: The default setting for both primary and alternate alarm
sensitivity is "Low." When both alarm sensitivity settings are the
same, switching alarm sensitivity does not have any effect.
Switching from primary to alternate alarm sensitivity
Use the Alt Sens (alternate sensitivity) command on the Activate
menu to cause fire alarm sensors to use their alternate alarm
sensitivity setting instead of their primary alarm sensitivity
setting.
To switch from primary to alternate sensitivity:
1.
Log on using the level 2 password.
2. From the main menu, choose Activate, then Alt Sens.
Switching from alternate to primary alarm sensitivity
Use the Prm Sens (primary sensitivity) command on the Restore
menu to cause fire alarm sensors to use their primary alarm
sensitivity setting instead of their alternate alarm sensitivity
setting.
To switch from alternate to primary sensitivity:
1.
Log on using the level 2 password.
2. From the main menu, choose Restore, then Prm Sens.
Operating instructions
3.13 Switching event message routes
Event messages are programmed with a primary and an alternate
message route. Typically, a fire alarm system uses the primary
message route during daytime operation and the alternate
message route during night time operation.
In most applications, a time control is used to automatically
switch event messages over to their alternate route setting. When
the time control is restored, event messages are automatically
switched back to their primary route settings. You can override
the event message route in effect using the Alternate Message
Route command on the Activate menu and the Primary Message
Route command on the Restore menu.
Note: The default setting for both primary and alternate message
routes is "All Cabinets." When both event message route settings
are the same, switching message routes does not have any effect.
Switching from primary to alternate message routing
Use the Alt Msg Route (alternate message route) command on
the Activate menu to switch event message routing from primary
message routing to alternate message routing.
To switch from primary to alternate message routing:
1.
Log on using the level 2 password.
2. From the main menu, choose Activate, then Alt Msg Route.
Switching from alternate to primary message routing
Use the Prm Msg Route (primary message route) command on
the Restore menu to switch event messages routing from
alternate message routing to primary message routing.
To switch from alternate to primary message routing:
1.
Log on using the level 2 password.
2. From the main menu, choose Restore, then Prm Msg Route.
