Fire
CFDCA4
Voice Alarm Controller
For most installations, this fixed-function networked
voice alarm controller provides the ideal solution.
From a single unit covering a few zones, to twenty
units networked together forming a distributed
80 zone system, the CFDCA4’s flexibility lends itself
to most systems and topologies.
The CFDCA4 has four zone outputs, all-call fire microphone
ports, a data control port for networking and configuration,
high priority microphone ports, two digital message stores
(allowing six messages to be held in hardware), a fire alarm
interface, low priority zoned microphone ports, and three
stereo music inputs.
The front panel LCD and keypad allows the selection of
volumes, music sources and full configuration including fire
cause and effects, with three levels of password protection;
as well as providing access to the 99 entry event log.
In the unlikely event of processor failure the two firemans’
inputs can still access the system zones on an “All Call”.

Fire Alarm Interface :
Service and Maintenance :
The fire alarm interface is compliant with BS5839pt8:2008; its six
inputs can be directly connected to reverse-monitored sounder
circuits. In line with the standards a separate reset line is required to
de-latch the message triggers. For complete disaster recovery, the
fire alarm should be connected locally to the zones that the matrix
controls; secondary causes-and-effects, such as alert messages,
can then be distributed around the network using virtual contacts.
Built-in synchronisation means clear, intelligible messages even in
difficult environments and from multiple sources.
Voice Alarm systems require regular system testing, the CFDCA4
allows TEST messages to be directed to specific zones, or a WALK
TEST can be initiated, saving noise pollution when commissioning
systems. There is also an optional service date function which will
place the system in fault if the service date is exceeded. Remote
monitoring and logging or email on fault options are also available.
All messages on the matrices are stored as 16 bit Windows.wav
format files, simple software is provided to up-load these messages to
the Flash memory within the controller, where they are check-summed
and continuously monitored.
Connections :
The use of Cat5 patch leads reduces the build labour on all systems
and allows easy colour coding of functions, the power and music
inputs use industry standard connectors for ease of replacement.
The fire interface may also be controlled via the serial port on each
matrix for greater system integration.
