at the control panel but will not execute any output functions (e.g. turning on the strobes or
fire horns). The operator has 30 seconds to “acknowledge” the event or the system will
activate a general alarm and sound all the fire horn and strobes. If the operator does
acknowledge the vent within thirty (3) seconds, the panel will start a timer for 180 seconds
(3 minutes) in which time the operator must find the device in alarm and reset the device.
If the operator has not performed a reset within 180 seconds or a second device reports
an alarm, the system will immediately sound the general alarm.
