VEGA LOOP BEACON
TERMINAL BLOCKS FOR
LOOP’S CONNECTION
GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The Vega Loop Beacon is a loop powered, light signalling device that operates according to the Vega protocol; it is an output device
which, activated by the control panel, through the analogue-intelligent loop’s wiring, switches on in the event of alarm or emergency
conditions.
Low current consumption, associated with the possibility to select output’s intensity and flash rate, perfectly fits the requirements of
the fire and security market. Its particular mechanical design and low profile allows an easy and fast installation.
Communication between the Vega Loop Beacon and the control panel is obtained via the Vega analogue-intelligent bidirectional
protocol.

SHORT CIRCUIT ISOLATOR
All standard Vega series devices are provided with short-circuit monitoring isolators on the intelligent loop’s line and can be activated
by the control panel.

The Vega Loop Beacon can be addressed using a special hand-held programming unit or it can be auto-addressed by the control
panel after it has been installed (the implementation of the auto-addressing feature depends on the control panel’s manufacturer).
Addresses may be selected from a range from 1 to 240, although, of course, each device on the analogue loop must have a unique
address.

In order to address manually the Vega Loop Beacon, connect it to the programming unit using the proper cable (refer to the programming unit instruction manual).
WARNINGS AND LIMITATIONS
Our devices use high quality electronic components and plastic materials that are highly resistant to environmental deterioration.
However, after 10 years of continuous operation, it is advisable to replace the devices in order to minimize the risk of reduced performance caused by external factors. Ensure that this device is only used with compatible control panels.
Detection systems must be checked, serviced and maintained on a regular basis to confirm correct operation.
Smoke sensors may respond differently to various kinds of smoke particles, thus application advice should be sought for special
risks. Sensors cannot respond correctly if barriers exist between them and the fire location and may be affected by special environmental conditions.

Refer to and follow national codes of practice and other internationally recognized fire engineering standards.
Appropriate risk assessment should be carried out initially to determine correct design criteria and updated periodically.

STROBE SETTINGS
DEVICE’S WIRING
Strobe’s characteristics when lit can be selected through the light intensity and the flash rate selectors located on the PCB (see
picture 7 and 8). Refer to table 2 for a specific reference to the usage of the selector switches.
The Vega Loop Beacon, as any other analogue device, must be connected to the analogue loop. Refer to picture 12 for wiring indications to the device’s terminal blocks.

INSTALLATION NOTICE
Table 2
DEVICE’S PLACEMENT
For specific information regarding detector and device’s spacing, placement and special applications refer to your specific national
standards.
The Vega Loop Beacon must be used in combination with compatible control panels employing the Vega communication
protocol for monitoring and control.
The location of beacons should follow recognised national or international application codes of practice.
Connections to the terminals are polarity sensitive: check them by referring to the wiring instructions given above.
TESTING
1) Select the position of the Vega Loop Beacon before installing and fixing it.
In order to test the functionality of the installed Vega Loop Beacon, the following test must be performed: activate an alarm condition
on the control panel (by a call-point or sensor in the installed system): the control panel will transmit an alarm message to the device
which will activate the beacon’s output.
2) Feed the loop’s wires into the base’s opening (picture 9), giving them a sufficient length.
3) By previously punching the required holes, install and fix the device’s base in the selected position with the provided screws
(picture 10).
4) Connect the Vega Loop Beacon device to the loop’s wires as described in the DEVICE’S WIRING paragraph.
After each test the device must be reset by the specific command on the control panel (see the RESET paragraph).
If the test fails, check if mistakes were made during installation or panel’s operation and correct them; if the Vega Loop Beacon
functionality is hopeless, send back the device to your distributor for repair or substitution.
5) Insert the device onto its base, then secure it by turning it clockwise.
All devices must be tested after installation and, successively, on a periodic basis.
6) Lock the device by tightening clockwise the base’s little locking screw (see picture 11).
RESET
To reset the Vega Loop Beacon from an alarm condition, it is necessary to:
1) solve the cause of the alarm condition
2) send the reset command from the control panel.
Performing sequentially those two operations the beacon’s output will be turned off.
