1 INTRODUCTION
1.1 CONTENTS OF DOCUMENTATION
This Operation and Maintenance Documentation (OMD) describes the application, design and
functioning of the IGNIS 1520M automatic fire extinguishing control panel. The documentation
contains necessary information of the IGNIS 1520M control panels for designers, fitters and
maintenance technicians. Together with the User Manual IO-E294-002E, intended for those who are
on duty directly at the control panel, it makes the complete operating documentation attached to
the control panel and delivered to its user.
1.2 CONTROL PANEL APPLICATION
The IGNIS 1520M automatic fire extinguishing control panel is a single-zone system designed for:
- actuation of stationery extinguishing equipment, based on the signal from automatic
detectors or manual buttons “extinguishing start ”,
- warning of fire detected by detectors interoperating with the control panel,
- activation of fire alarm devices, protection and sealing equipment, etc.,
- transmission of information on fire hazard or performance of individual stages of the
automatic fire extinguishing procedure to the monitoring systems.
The control panel operates with bistable (conventional) 30 and 40 series detectors, buttons for
manual start, stop and disablement, and indicators manufactured by POLON-ALFA.
The panel is dedicated for installation in facilities where one extinguishing zone is required, and also
may be used as a satellite control panel in bigger hierarchical systems. It is suitable for continuous
operation in low-dust rooms, at temperatures from -5 °C to +40 °C and relative humidity of up to 80
% at +40 °C.
1.3 SAFETY CONDITIONS
1.3.1 Anti-shock protection
The IGNIS 1520M automatic fire extinguishing control panels are ranked as 1st protection class
devices and can be used only in the case of application of additional protection against electric
shocks, such as zeroing or protective grounding.
Insulation of the 230 V/50 Hz power circuits is reinforced and resists the test voltage of 2800 V.
Insulation of low-voltage circuits (below 42 V) resists the test voltage of 700 V DC. After connecting
the mains power supply cabling, the mains connection must be protected with a manufacturer's
shield.
1.3.2 Security of systems and equipment
The wiring installation should be made of wires with the required fire resistance and it should be
properly protected when crossing the fire zone borders. In order to prevent unwelcome effects, the
distance between the low-voltage installation and the power and lightning protection systems should
be kept as required. Taking into account system resistance to electromagnetic interference, it is
recommended to use protective grounding. A reserve batteries cluster must be connected to the unit
during the final installation process stages.
The components of this unit are high-temperature sensitive. The maximum ambient temperature
must not exceed 40 °C. It is forbidden to block the ventilation openings on the side of the unit. The
space around the unit must facilitate free flow of air. The air humidity in the rooms where the unit
operates must not exceed 95 %.

4 CONTROL PANEL DESIGN
4.1 MECHANICAL DESIGN
The control panel is made in the form of a metal cabinet intended for wall mounting. The front of the
control panel is the door with manipulation and signalling elements on. The door can be opened
after two clamping bolts are unscrewed. The key switch does not act as the mechanical lock. Inside
the control panel, in its bottom part, a space for battery pack is provided. The control panel
controller motherboard with linear circuits is mounted on the internal side of the door. On the rear
wall of the casing, there are glands to insert the alarm system cables and power cables, and the
board with supply circuits and connecting blocks. In the left side wall, there is a plugged hole which
enables inserting the cable for connection with PC and transferring the control panel events memory
contents via the RS serial interface.
10
ID-E294-011GB
4.2 SIGNALLING AND HANDLING ELEMENTS, ACCESS LEVELS
The signalling and handling elements are located on the control panel door, hereinafter also referred
to as the front panel. The following elements are available on the front panel: LEDs, backlight
indicator with the FIRE wording, key switch, membrane buttons and special push buttons:
EXTINGUISHING START and LOCK EXTINGUISHING with a transparent shield to prevent from an
unintentional press. In the upper part of the front panel, the LCD is mounted. Every signalling and
manipulation element has its own description. The handling and signalling elements distribution is
shown in fig. 1 and for their detailed description is contained in point 5.2.
The manipulation elements, which enable changing the configuration parameters, are provided
inside the control panel as buttons located immediately on the controller’s printed board. On the
PCB, there is also the restart button and set of contacts for programming the control panel operation
by means of ZW3...ZW12 jumpers.
On the rear wall of the control panel, there is the power supply board with 24 V converter module,
converters for voltages necessary for supplying the electronic systems, battery pack charging system
and a set of connecting blocks for connection of internal wiring systems. Next to the connecting
blocks, there are ZW1 jumpers and a connecting block with 24 V output for the external equipment
supplying. Over the mains adaptor module, there is the 230 V double-pole power switch, and under
the screwed-in screen plate – the mains connecting block.
In IGNIS1520M control panel, the accessibility of the handling elements and specific functions is
diverse and divided into four access levels.
The 1st access level is intended for persons who take the first measures after a fire alarm or fault has
been signalled. On this access level, only two push buttons are active: the “acknowledgement”
button and the signalling element test function enabled by the button “manual/automatic and
manual control”.
The 2nd access level is intended for those who are particularly responsible for security and have been
trained and authorised to operate the control panel to a limited extent. To enter the 2nd access level,
it is necessary to turn the key. This makes all the buttons on the control panel front panel available.
The 3rd access level is intended for those who are trained and authorised to change the configuration
data and perform the maintenance. This access level handling elements are located inside the
control panel.
The 4th access level is intended for those who are trained and authorised by the manufacturer to
change the factory software and perform the servicing.
5 DESCRIPTION OF FUNCTIONALITIES AND CONTROL PANEL PROGRAMMING
5.1 GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The IGNIS 1520M control panel combines the functions of the fire detection and alarm system and
the universal automatic extinguishing controller. It is equipped with two conventional detection
lines, eight inputs for supervised monitoring and controlling lines, six supervised outputs to control
the alarm devices circuits and devices initiating the release of extinguishing agent, set of eleven
relays with non-potential change-over contacts and clench contacts for performance of executive
functions and the control panel mode monitoring functions.
ID-E294-011GB
11
In the section responsible for fire detection, two-line coincidence was used as one of the most
effective methods to eliminate false alarms. The additional way to immunize the system against
detector false actuation is a possibility to programme the variant with preliminary reset.
In the fire extinguishing controlling section, the extinguishing agent discharge is possible after the
simultaneous occurrence of two independent signals on the outputs of separate systems. In the case
of a fault of the microprocessor circuit, the operation of relays that control the extinguishing agent
discharge is also disabled.
In the only-manual mode, when the alarm signal comes from fire alarm warning devices installed in
the detection lines, the alarm signalling is carried out in two steps. The control panel first triggers the
1st stage (preliminary) alarm and then, after the delay time, the 2nd stage (main) alarm, without
actuation of the automatic fire extinguishing procedure.
In the automatic control mode, the detectors triggering does not result in the automatic fire
extinguishing procedure actuation unless there has been a two-line coincidence, that is an actuation
of at least two detectors in two detection lines.
In the case of fire detection by the attending personnel, the control panel always enables the manual
alarm evoking and activation of the automatic fire extinguishing procedure with buttons
EXTINGUISHING START .
The extinguishing procedure starts with actuation of the evacuation signal and counting down the
programmed discharge delay time. In this time, it is possible to stop the countdown and increase the
discharge delay by pressing the EXTINGUISHING STOP push button. After this delay time elapses, the
electric impulse is sent to discharge the extinguishing agent and actuate relevant warning signals
against entering the room. At the right moment during the extinguishing procedure execution, the
control panel can actuate the sealing equipment (e.g. smoke dampers) to maintain the correct
concentration of extinguishing agent within a pre-set time. The warning signals are active until the
alarm has been reset in the control panel. The button EXTINGUISHING BLOCKADE is installed in the
control panel to enable discharge blocking in any operating mode of the system.
All the necessary indicators of the control panel are located on the control panel front side in the
form of illuminating diodes with descriptions. The LCD display has an auxiliary function with regard to
signalling. It is mainly used to enter the parameters determining the operation conditions of the
control panel and enables monitoring of the real-time clock operation. Most events the control panel
is able to detect are saved in the internal events memory.
5.2 HANDLING ELEMENTS AND INDICATORS ON FRONT PANEL
In the further part of this section, for easier identification, before the description of every element its
number is given in the brackets according to the marking as in fig. 1.

5.4 LCD MESSAGES
The IGNIS 1520M control panel is equipped with a 16-character alphanumeric LCD (28). The main
task of the display is to enable setting and reading of the real time, date and the control panel
configuration parameters. The current time and date are used in the automatic event recording
system. The control panel basic modes are indicated by illuminating diodes, while the display
provides only an auxiliary function in this regard.
The display additionally supports the control panel operation by showing messages about its status
or active buttons functions.
During the control panel operation in a quiescent mode, the LCD displays the date and time. Any
other information, except for an alarm mode, is displayed on a temporary basis. After several
seconds, the control panel automatically returns to displaying the date and time.

5.4.3 Control panel configuration setting programming functions (3rd access level)
In order to use those functions it is necessary to unscrew two bolts on the front panel and open the
control panel door. This is frequently referred to as the 3rd access level. On the PCB inside of the
door, there are three push buttons: FUNCTION, SELECT and SET (Fig. 2), which are used to set delay
times, duration of output pulses and the control panel other configuration parameters. The values
ID-E294-011GB
21
displayed on LCD are saved automatically. On the same board, there is also the RESET button, which
is necessary for execution of certain functions.
The display readings presented below are exemplary.
5.4.3.1 External alarm devices actuation option setting
The IGNIS 1520M control panel is equipped with a supervised output for external alarming devices
connection – marked as P9 (terminals 27, 28). The operation way of this output depends on the
programmed option – as described in point 5.7.
EXT. AL. OPT. – 0
where: 0 –option number (0 or 1)
In order to change an option, it is necessary to select the following wording on the display: OPTION.
AL. EXT. – 0, and settle one of two options “0” or “1” with the SELECT and SET push buttons.
5.4.3.2 General alarm (2nd stage) relay actuation delay programming
In the manual control mode, the control panel allows the personnel on duty to verify a fire
occurrence. The duty officer is required to report within 30 sec and confirm the alarm by pressing the
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT push button. When the duty officer fails to confirm the alarm within this time,
the control panel will actuate the alarm transmission relays. After the alarm has been confirmed, the
control panel counts down the delay time necessary for recognition of the real hazard within the
facility. The delay time is programmable using the following function:
DELAY
1’ 30”
where: 1’ – minutes (0...9),
30” – seconds (0...59)
Every digit is set independently with the SET push button. The SELECT button moves the cursor to the
next digit.
5.4.3.3 Event memory reset
In order to erase the event memory contents, it is necessary to call the MEMORY RESET – 0 function
using the FUNCTION button and with the SET push button to switch the option from “0” to “1”,
EVENT MEM. RES. - 0
where: 0 means the erasing function switch off, and 1 means the erasing function switch on.
The event memory contents will only be erased upon restarting the control panel controller with the
RESET push button.
A failure to restart (with the RESET button) within 10...20 seconds since entering “1” will
automatically reset the “1” option and the memory will not be erased.
5.4.3.4 Evacuation alarm duration time programming
In order to change the duration of evacuation alarm, it is necessary to call the EVAC. DURATION
function using the FUNCTION push button.
EVAC. TIME - 0’ 20
where: 0’ – minutes (0...1),
22
ID-E294-011GB
20 – seconds (0...59)
The SELECT push button enables moving the cursor to a position of the value to be modified. The
value in selected position can be modified with the SET push button.
5.4.3.5 ‘Standard configuration’ loading
The IGNIS 1520M control panel supplied to the user, is preliminary programmed by the manufacturer
as to its operation conditions, what is referred to as the standard configuration. The control panel
user programming changes the factory settings in order to optimally adjust the parameters to the
system needs and characteristics of the protected facility. The control panel is furnished with
functions that enable automatic cancellation of the user settings and restoring the standard
configuration.
The standard configuration loading requires:
- to open the control panel,
- to use the internal FUNCTION press button (by pressing it several times) for selection of the
STANDARD CONF. – 0 option on the display:,
- to switch over from “0” to “1” with the SET push button,
- to restart the control panel with the RESET push button.
STANDARD CONF.– 0
where: 0 – means disabling the “standard configuration” download function, and “1” – means
enabling the “standard configuration” download function.
After the above-mentioned operations performance, the control panel parameters are programmed
as follows:
detection lines – switched on,
2nd stage alarm delay time set to 1 min 30 sec,
external alarm option – 0,
evacuation time – 1 min,
delay time for P1, P2 relays actuation– 10 sec,
actuation criterion for P1 relay – 1st stage alarm,
actuation criterion for P2 relay – 2nd stage alarm,
P6 impulse duration – 4 sec,
P7 impulse duration – 4 sec,
P8 impulse duration – 4 sec,
TRANSMISSION, ALARM DEVICES – enabled,
CONTROL – switched to “automatic and manual” one.
A failure to restart (with the RESET button) within 10...20 seconds since entering “1”, will
automatically reset the “1” option and the Standard configuration will be entered.
5.4.3.6 P1 and P2 relay programming
In order to programme the P1 and P2relays, select function PK1 - AL. I - 0'10 with the FUNCTION push
button and then use the SET and SELECT buttons to set the number of relay to be programmed,
actuation criterion and delay time.
PK1 – AL. I - 0’ 10
where: PK1 – P1 (or P2) relay,
AL I – actuation criterion for P1 (or P2 relay) .
ID-E294-011GB
23
The actuation criterion for the P1 (and independently for P2) relay can be programmed by selecting
the relevant event (1st stage alarm, 2nd stage alarm, extinguishing start , etc.) according to Table 4.

5.4.3.7 Controlling impulses duration time programming
In order to change the duration of the extinguishing agent release impulses, it is necessary to call the
function “time 1 (P6) 00’04” with the FUNCTION push button.
TIME 1 (P6) - 00’ 04
where: 1 (P6) – impulse No. (1..3) and a relay description (P6...P8)
00’ – minutes (0...29),
04 – seconds (0...59).
This function allows to programme 3 duration values for the P6, P7 and P8 releasing impulses
(supplying 24 V current through relay contacts). The SELECT push button should be used to move the
cursor to the position to be modified. The value in selected position can be modified using the SET
button.
5.4.3.8 Reset disablement time programming
The control panel enables to disable a possibility of an activation state reset for a specific time (0...30
min) using the “reset disablement” function.
In order to change the duration of the reset disablement, it is necessary to call the
“DISA.RES. t= 00’00” function with the FUNCTION push button and use the SELECT and SET push
buttons to programme the desired time.
DISA. RES. T = 00'30
where: 00’ – minutes (0...29),
30 – seconds (0...59)

ID-E294-011GB
5.5 CONTROL PANEL BASIC MODES
5.5.1 Quiescent mode
In the quiescent mode, i.e. while the control panel is waiting for a signal from fire warning devices,
only the green POWER SUPPLY diode is lit on the front panel to inform that power supply is on. In
addition, the current time and date are displayed on LCD.
All the control panel relays are inactive, except for the general fault relay, which is in an actuation
state.
5.5.2 Alarm mode
The control panel fire hazard detection part enables a two-stage alarm arrangement, i.e. it allows to
delay actuation of the outputs to fire alarm transmission devices so that the evoked fire alarm can be
verified by the personnel. The alarm occurring during the verification until the alarm signal
transmission relays are triggered is called a preliminary alarm, an internal alarm or a 1st stage alarm.
The 2nd stage (external or general) alarm takes place after the alarm transmission relays are
triggered.
In order to limit the probability of false actuations of fire warning devices, the control panel provides
a possibility to set a variant with detectors preliminary reset. In this variant, the control panel
automatically cancels the first actuation of a detector without entering the alarm mode. A repeated
detector actuation will result in evoking the fire alarm. If there is no repeated activation of any
detector in the same detection line within 60 sec, the control panel will consider the previous
actuation as false and return to the quiescent mode as it was in before the first actuation. A method
how to switch the control panel into the above-mentioned variant operation, see point 5.3.
MANUAL CONTROL mode
The 1st stage alarm can be evoked by the control panel as a result of actuation of automatic fire
warning devices on one or two detection lines, which identify approximately the place of the danger.
In this time, a close co-operation between the fire protection system and the properly trained
personnel who should locate and remove the hazard is required.
The control panel functioning during the 1st stage alarm is as follows:
- The red diode EXTINGUISHING START is flashing when one of the detection lines is in the
alarm mode (and with permanent light when two detection lines are in the alarm mode),
- alarm indicator labelled as FIRE is flashing (after the acknowledgement it is shining with a
permanent light),
- LCD displays an alarm message with flashing number of the line where the first alarm
occurred and elapsing time left to actuation of the general (2nd stage) alarm relays,
- the internal acoustic indicator turns on with an interrupted signal of 1 s/1 s,
- the external indicator output (P9) is activated – an interrupted signal,
- the P4 preliminary alarm relay turns on.
The internal and external acoustic signal can be silenced, at the 1st access level, with the
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT push button. For the manual mode, the 1st stage alarm duration is
programmed by the user within the range of 0...10 min and countdown of the remaining time can be
stopped by a transmission disablement at the 2nd access level. Lack of the 1st stage alarm
acknowledgement reduces the delay time to 30 sec. After the delay time elapses, the control panel
evokes the 2nd stage alarm. In manual control mode, the alarm triggered by detectors does not
activate the automatic fire extinguishing procedure.
The 2nd stage alarm repeats the actuation of the internal and external (output P9) acoustic alarm
device (if the 1st stage alarm has been silenced by the acknowledgement). The general alarm relays
ID-E294-011GB
25
(P5 and P17) are actuated. The red TRANSMISSION diode on the front panel is activated. Other
indicators operate as during the 1st stage alarm.
The DISABLE TRANSMISSION push button can be used to disable the general (2nd degree) alarm relays
operation. When zero delay time is programmed, the control panel will immediately evoke the 2nd
stage alarm when a fire is detected by the first detector. It will also be evoked after a manual
activation of the automatic fire extinguishing procedure, even if a pre-set delay time has not elapsed
yet.
The start of extinguishing in the manual mode is only possible with manual buttons connected to the
“extinguishing start ” line or with the EXTINGUISHING START push button located on the control
panel door (after the key is turned – the 2nd access level);
AUTOMATIC and MANUAL CONTROL mode
In this operating mode, detection lines work in a two-line coincidence.
The 1st stage alarm can be evoked by triggering of fire alarm warning devices installed in any, but
only one, detection line. The function of limited duration of the 1st stage alarm (1...10 min) is
switched off.
When another detection line is not actuated and the personnel is not taking up any intervention, the
1st stage alarm state will be automatically reset after 3 hours from its occurrence.
The 1st stage alarm signalling is identical as in the manual control mode.
The 2nd stage alarm is evoked by detection of an alarm state in two detection lines simultaneously
and it activates the automatic fire extinguishing procedure. The following components will be
activated then:
- internal and external signalling indicators (output P9) – with a permanent sound,
- general alarm relays (P5 and P17),
- red TRANSMISSION diode on the front panel of the control panel – with a permanent sound,
- red EXTINGUISHING START diode – with a permanent sound,
- evacuation alarm relay P10 – with an interrupted sound.
Other indicators operate in the same manner as during the 1st stage alarm.
The DISABLE TRANSMISSION push button can be used to disable the operation of the general (2nd
stage) alarm relays.
An acknowledgement of the 2nd stage alarm silences the control panel internal alarm device and can
disable the P9 external alarm devices relay (in alarming option “0”). The alarm devices controlled by
the P10 and P11 relays do not have the silencing function.
The start of extinguishing procedure in the automatic and manual mode is possible:
- after a fire detection by at least two detectors in two different detection lines (coincidence of
two lines),
- as a result of manual actuation (as in the manual mode),
- upon transmitting an alarm signal to the initiation line input (input being disabled in the onlymanual control mode).
Stages of the automatic fire extinguishing procedure executed by the control panel:
1. State before activation
The 1st stage alarm signalling when one of the two detection lines is in the alarm mode.
2. Actuation state (preliminary warning)
At this stage a programmed evacuation time is counted down, what allows leaving the room until the
extinguishing agent is released. The control panel signalisation is identical as during the 2nd stage
alarm and additionally the relay output (P10) used for connection of evacuation indicators is
activated with an interrupted signal. The EXTINGUISHING START diode on the front panel is on. The
external devices relay output (P9) is activated with a permanent signal. The LCD displays the time
remained to the extinguishing agent release.
During this time, the EXTINGUISHING STOP button function is active. Its actuation by pressing the
button, suspends the automatic fire extinguishing procedure. (The control panel is able to set two
ways how the extinguishing suspension may function, which are described in table 1). This state is
26
ID-E294-011GB
indicated by the yellow EXTINGUISHING STOP diode on the front panel. The procedure is resumed
upon releasing the EXTINGUISHING STOP button (the suspension is only active while the button is
pressed).
3. Discharge state
After the preliminary warning time has elapsed, the extinguishing agent is released as a result of
actuation of the P6, P7 and P8 relay outputs. First, the P6 relay output is activated, and then the P7
one. The P8 output, which releases the extinguishing agent reserve, can only be actuated with the
manual button after impulses from P6 and P7 outputs have been finished. Upon the actuation of the
fire extinguishing procedure, the control panel triggers the P11 output, which controls the warning
alarm devices installed nearby the entrances into the extinguishing zone.
The red DISCHARGE diode on the front panel is illuminated with a permanent light, while the LCD
displays the remaining times of releasing impulses and the message “extinguishing”. With the
programmable P1, P2 relays, the control panel enables to switch off ventilation, to close e.g. smoke
and heat dampers to make the room sealed (air-tight) and maintain proper concentration of the
extinguishing agent within a pre-set time.
The control panel can enter the discharge state, i.e. can indicate the extinguishing agent release:
- after it has moved through all the discharge preceding states during the automatic fire
extinguishing procedure as a result of manual or automatic actuation;
- with omission of the discharge preceding states, as a result of receiving the extinguishing
agent discharge signal from the “discharge control” line.
The receipt of a signal from the “discharge control” output is possible when is has been actuated
with the ZW7 jumper.
In case of receipt of the extinguishing agent discharge signal with the discharge preceding states
omission, the control panel actuates the following outputs:
- external acoustic signalling – P9,
- evacuation signalling – P10,
- warning signalling – P11,
- P13 “extinguishing” relay (monitoring to the superior system),
- P1 or P2 relays, depending on whether the discharge state has been programmed as their
actuation criterion or not.
Note:
1. A fault of the EXTINGUISHING STOP and EXTINGUISHING BLOCKADE push buttons line disables an
extinguishing signal and hinders the extinguishing agent release.
The examples of time histories in the alarm state with performance of the automatic fire
extinguishing procedure, which illustrate the occurrence of the initial states of the control panel, are
presented below.
ID-E294-011GB
27
ALARM MODE RESET
An alarm state reset and return to the quiescent mode is performed with the RESET push button
(after the control panel is switched to the 2nd access level – key turning). The precondition of the
effective reset is the lack of fire factor nearby the fire alarm warning devices and additionally lack of
temporary reset disablement in the extinguishing actuation state (see point 5.4.2.8).
A remote reset of the control panel alarm mode is possible using the “automatic control
disablement/reset” line.
After the extinguishing procedure has been started, the reset can be disabled for a pre-set time of
0...30 min. (see point 5.4.3), counted from the moment when the actuation state is started. A
readout or modification of the reset disablement time is possible at the 3rd access level, also in the
control panel alarm mode.
5.5.3 Fault mode
The IGNIS 1520M control panel is equipped with an internal self-control system thanks to which it
detects and signals the following faults:
- breaks or short-circuits of any detection line attached to the 17....20 terminals;
28
ID-E294-011GB
-
breaks or short-circuits of any monitoring and controlling line attached to the 1...16
terminals;
breaks or short-circuits of any line attached to the relay outputs – the 21...32 terminals;
mains power supply fault;
battery pack fault caused by an increase in its internal resistance above 2 Ω or lack of
batteries,
battery pack charger fault,
BZ2 fuse element lack of or burning,
microprocessor system fault,
interruption or loss of configuration data saved in the device memory,
earth fault, i.e. short-circuit of any control panel circuit or line attached to the control panel
with its metal casing or grounding system.
The control panel signals a fault mode with:
- permanent light of the yellow FAILURE general diode,
- flashing light of the yellow diodes in the field FAULT/DISABLEMENT/TESTING, which indicate
a type of the fault,
- fault acoustic signal.
The detailed information on the fault type can be read from the LCD.
Whenever the 2nd access level is activated (i.e. the key is turned), the messages about the current
faults are displayed. Depending on the control panel fault mode, the following messages can be
displayed:
FAULT FUSE BZ2
- BZ2 fuse fault
BAT. VOLTAGE-LOW
- battery voltage decrease
SH. CIRC. LINE 1
- short-circuit in detection line 1
SH. CIRC. LINE 2
- short-circuit in detection line 2
LACK PRESS./MASS
- extinguishing agent outage or pressure (mass) decrease
MAINS FAULT
- ~230V mains power supply fault
BATTERY FAULT
- fault of battery pack or its circuit
EARTH FAULT
- fault of insulation between control panel circuits and grounding
LACK OF CHARGING
- power supply circuit fault tor break in power supply circuit
BREAK IN LINE 1
- break in detection line 1
BREAK IN LINE 2
- break in detection line 2
FAULT LINE P6
- P6 relay controlling circuit fault (21.22 terminals)
FAULT LINE P7
- P7 relay controlling circuit fault (23.24 terminals)
FAULT LINE P8
- P8 relay controlling circuit fault (25.26 terminals)
FAULT LINE P9
- P9 relay controlling circuit fault (27.28 terminals)
FAULT LINE P10
- P10 relay controlling circuit fault (29.30 terminals)
FAULT LINE P11
- P11 relay controlled circuit fault (31.32 terminals)
FAULT LIN. START
- EXTINGUISHING START push buttons line fault
ID-E294-011GB
FAULT STOP LINE
- EXTINGUISHING STOP push buttons line fault
FAULT L. BLOCK.
- BLOCKADE push buttons line fault
FAULT L.A.D./RES
- fault of automatic disablement of automatic mode (or reset line)
FAULT INIT. LINE
- initiating line fault
FAULT DISCH.LINE
- „discharge supervision” line fault
FAULT L.PRES/MAS
- „pressure ( mass) supervision” line fault
FAULT L. ADD/UML
- „reserve release” push buttons line (universal monitoring line) fault
SYSTEM FAULT
- control panel controller programme performance fault
CONF. SET. FAULT
- interruption in configuration settings recorded in control panel memory
29
The fault acoustic signal can be silenced at the 1st access level by pressing the CONFIRM button, while
the light signalling is cancelled automatically after the fault is removed. An exception is the system
fault in the form of a serious fault of the microprocessor controller, which cannot be silenced with
the CONFIRM button. If this is the case, the control panel enters the “safe state” and emits the
permanent acoustic signal. The system fault resulting from false configuration data can be silenced
with the CONFIRM button, however in this case the configuration settings of the control panel should
be checked and corrected when necessary. Lack of automatic removal of the control panel system
fault indication, after having checked the configuration settings, proves that a permanent fault
occurred. If this is the case, it is necessary to disconnect the control panel from the mains and call the
service.
5.5.4 Disablement mode
Disablement and re-enablement is performed using push the buttons located on the front panel,
after the control panel is switched into the 2nd access level (see point 5.4.2 “Functions of the control
panel at the 2nd access level”).
In order to provide quick access to the transmission and indicators disablement function, the control
panel is equipped with separate disablement buttons located near the TRANSMISSION and
INDICATORS diodes.
In order to disable other circuits, it is necessary to use the FUNCTION, SELECT, SET buttons and LCD.
The control panel enables disablement of:
- DETECTION line 1,
- DETECTION line 2,
- INITIATION line,
- MANUAL CONTROLLING DEVICES line (extinguishing start , extinguishing stop , disable
extinguishing, reserve release, external automatic control/reset disablement),
- ELECTRO-VALVES line (P6, P7, P8 relays)
- DISCHARGE MONITORING line,
- PRESSURE/MASS SUPERVISION line,
- monitoring line for EXTERNAL DEVICES or P1, P2 relays,
- TRANSMISSION of alarm signal (general alarm P5 and P17 relays),
- ALARM DEVICES (P9 relay).
The disablement mode is signalled with a permanent light:
- collectively by the yellow DISABLEMENT diode (3),
- in detail by the yellow diodes located in the field FAULT/ DISABLEMENT /TESTING,
respectively for the circuits specified above.
30
ID-E294-011GB
Remarks:
Disablement of one of the detection lines precludes any actuation of the fire extinguishing procedure
in the automatic mode when detectors (no line coincidence) are the alarm source.
In addition, the actuation of the automatic fire extinguishing procedure is automatically disabled
when the panel door is open, which is signalled by a flashing light of the PERSONNEL ACCESS diode.
When the EXTINGUISHING STOP or DISABLE EXTINGUISHING push buttons line is disabled, the fire
extinguishing procedure is interrupted at the stage of evacuation alarm.
5.5.5 Testing mode
The control panel provides a testing possibility of the most important circuits and system
components.
1. Tests of the optical indicators located on the control panel front wall and the internal acoustic
alarm device. In this test, the TESTING diode exceptionally does not signal the mode, as it is being
under testing itself.
This test can only be enabled at the 1st access level by means of the second function of the MANUAL
CONTROL button in accordance with its description in point 5.2.
2. Testing performance of fire warning devices and detection lines
Switching the detection line into the testing mode and again into the quiescent mode is performed
by means of the buttons on the front panel, after the control panel is switched into the 2nd access
level (see point 5.4.2 “Functions of the control panel at the 2nd access level”).
The control panel receipt of a test alarm signal from the fire warning device is only signalled by the
red EXTINGUISHING START diode. The alarming line in the testing mode is reset automatically after
approx. 8 sec. This ensures comfortable performance of installed detectors testing without evoking a
fire alarm.
3. Testing the lines related to the control panel extinguishing section:
It is possible to test functioning of the monitoring and controlling lines, and alarm devices. In order to
actuate testing, it is necessary to:
- switch the ZW10 jumper into position 2-3 (inside the control panel – see point 5.3),
- set the testing mode using the function buttons and LCD (see point 5.4.2 “Functions of the
control panel at the 2nd access level”).
a) The testing function of the monitoring and controlling lines (terminals 1 ÷ 16) allows fast checking
of their working order by imposing the active state – loading the line with resistance of approx. 1 kΩ
and observing the DISCHARGING diode. A fast flashing light proves that the circuit is in good working
order. Before testing of another line, the diode should be reset with the CONFIRM or RESET button
on the control panel door.
b) Indicators testing actuation (P9, P10, P11 relay outputs, 27 ÷ 32 terminals) results in automatic
activation of installed indicators with an interrupted sound. During the tests the indicators can be
silenced with the INDICATORS button.
In order to disable testing, it is necessary to switch the ZW10 jumper to its initial position 1-2, which
will automatically reset the testing settings on LCD.
The testing mode is signalled by a permanent light of the collective TESTING diode and fast flashing
light of the diodes indicating the tested circuits in the field FAULT/DISABLEMENT/TESTING.
5.6 SIGNAL TRANSMISSION
Using the relay outputs, which are actuated during a fire alarm, the control panel can control the
external devices and send fire alarm signals to the monitoring station. The general alarm relays can
ID-E294-011GB
31
be programmed so that they are actuated immediately or with a delay set within the range of 0 to 9
min 59 sec, in a sequence of 1 sec. For a delay longer than 30 sec., its execution additionally depends
on the alarm signal acknowledgement by the personnel – by pressing the ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
button. If the control panel operates in (only) manual controlling mode and the
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT button is not pressed within 30 sec, the control panel will reduce the set delay
time to 30 sec and actuate the general alarm relays. If the control panel works in automatic (and
manual) mode, the delay time will be reduced to zero.
In order to disable the P5 and P17 general alarm relays actuation, the TRANSMISSION push button
should be used.
The P4 initial alarm relay is not programmable, it actuates immediately upon the 1st stage alarm
occurrence and has not the disablement function.
5.7 EXTERNAL ACOUSTIC ALARM DEVICES
Using the output for fire alarm devices (terminals 27, 28), it is possible to attach external acoustic
alarm devices to the control panel. The output operation depends on the ALARM DEVICES (25) push
button and programmable external alarming option (“0” or “1”). If option “0” is programmed, then in
the alarm mode it is possible to use the ACKNOWLEDGEMENT (32) push button to silence the
acoustic signalling, both internal and external, and the ALARM DEVICES button to again switch on or
off the external indicators (without using the key). When the control panel receives an alarm signal
from the second line, the internal acoustic signalling will always be repeated and the external
signalling will be repeated only if the ALARM DEVICES button was not used for disablement in the
quiescent mode.
If option “1” is programmed, the operation of the output for fire alarm devices is independent on the
ACKNOWLEDGEMENT (32) push button. The ALARM DEVICES (25) push button enables disablement
(switch off) and re-enablement (switch on) of the attached line, but it is only operative at the 2nd
access level. In option “1”, the incoming alarms do not affect the state of the ALARM DEVICES
button, i.e. the next alarm does not re-enable the output.
The yellow diode (18) signals the external alarm devices disablement (silencing).
5.8 INPUTS AND OUTPUTS DESCRIPTION
5.8.1 Monitoring and controlling lines inputs
5.8.1.1 Input for external EXTINGUISHING BLOCKADE buttons
It is used for connection of the EXTINGUISHING BLOCKADE buttons line. When the button is pressed,
it interrupts the extinguishing signal and blocks the relays that initiate the extinguishing agent
release. Unlike the EXTINGUISHING STOP buttons, which are operative only when pressed and
during the countdown of delay to release, the EXTINGUISHING BLOCKADE push buttons can be used
for interrupting or blocking fire extinguishing at every stage of the control panel operation. The
button actuation does not block the reception of the alarm signal and signalling functions related to
the control panel alarm mode.
Remark:
A line fault (short-circuit, break or lack of end-of-line resistor) also blocks the extinguishing agent
release.
32
ID-E294-011GB
5.8.1.2 Input for automatic control disablement/reset
The input function depends on the ZW4 jumper setting (see point 5.3, table 1).
a) ZW4 – contacts 1-2 closed
It enables the control panel automatic operation mode remote disablement – the K contact closed,
or re-enablement – contact K opened. In the disablement state, the control panel can actuate the
extinguishing procedure as a result of pressing the EXTINGUISHING START button only. The circuit
allows turning on the LED in series with 1 kΩ resistor to signal the disablement state.
b) ZW4 – contacts 2-3 closed
It enables to remotely reset the alarm mode – the K contact should be a no-latch button. When
closed, the K contact actuates the alarm reset function, like the RESET button on the control panel
door.
The input function depends on the ZW4 jumper setting (see point 5.3, table 1).
a) ZW4 – contacts 1-2 closed
5.8.1.3 External alarm input – initiation line
The K contact actuation entails the automatic fire extinguishing procedure start in the automatic
operation mode and the same signalling of the control panel as that actuated with the
EXTINGUISHING START push button. In the manual control mode, the input is disabled. It is used for
a “certain” activating signal receipt from another fire protection system.
5.8.1.4 Extinguishing agent release supervision input
The input is active after the ZW7 jumper has been switched to pos. 2-3.
The K contact can be the normally open contact, for example for the flow relay installed on the
extinguishing agent exit side. As a result of having closed K contact, a real extinguishing agent release
signal is sent to the control panel. It turns on the optical and acoustic signalling and relevant inputs,
like for the discharge state, if they have not been activated before due to the automatic fire
extinguishing procedure evoking.
ID-E294-011GB
33
The control panel signals the external devices fault if no extinguishing agent release signal occurs on
the “discharge control” input within a specific time after the P6 relay triggering, which actuates the
electro-valve.
5.8.1.5 Pressure or mass supervision input
The task of the line connected to this input is to supervise the efficiency of extinguishing equipment,
especially as to proper pressure or mass. For a higher number of devices to be monitored, more
normally closed contacts can be connected in series rather than one K contact. The circuit opening is
signalled by the control panel as a fault of the “pressure (mass) supervision” line.
The below diagram shows another usage way of the pressure (mass) supervision input, which allows
distinguishing the difference between a line fault (short-circuit or break) and the K contact switching
function. The K contact is normally open. Closing the K contact results in the fault “no
pressure/mass” signalling, while the line fault generates a fault message of the pressure (mass)
supervision line.
5.8.1.6 RESERVE/LK line input
The input function depends on the ZW9 jumper setting (see point 5.3, table 1).
a) „reserve release” (jumper 9 in pos. 2-3).
It enables connection of the line with buttons for manual discharge of the extinguishing agent
additional reserve. Closing the K contact results in the P8 relay actuation, which sends the releasing
impulse with duration as programmed by the user. This input triggering is only possible after the
extinguishing agent anterior discharge (i.e. after the P6 and P7 relays activation). The “reserve”
buttons can be connected in parallel and there should be only one 10 kΩ end-of-line resistor
installed, at the end of the line. The actuation signalling LED the can be connected to 1 kΩ resistor in
series.
34
ID-E294-011GB
b) universal monitoring line (jumper 9 in pos. 1-2)
It is provided for the external devices efficiency monitoring. The K contact opening (line break) or the
line short-circuit result in the external devices fault.
5.8.1.7 EXTINGUISHINGSTART external push buttons input
It is used for connection of the line of manual fire extinguishing actuation buttons. It is possible to
connect in parallel several push buttons, but only one 10 kΩ end-of-line resistor should be installed
at the end of the line. The actuation signalling LED the can be connected to 1 kΩ resistor in series.
Pressing the button actuates the automatic fire extinguishing procedure.
5.8.1.8 EXTINGUISHING STOP external buttons input
It is used for connection of the line with one or more EXTINGUISHING STOP buttons are installed in
parallel. Only one 10 kΩ resistor should be installed, at the end of the line, in the last button. The
input is only active during the execution of the automatic fire extinguishing procedure. Pressing the
EXTINGUISHING STOP button stops execution of the automatic fire extinguishing procedure and this
mode is signalled by the EXTINGUISHING STOP diode located on the control panel front panel. The
procedure is resumed upon releasing the EXTINGUISHING STOP button. Then, according to the ZW6
jumper setting, the evacuation time is counted from the beginning (for the ZW6 jumper in pos. 1-2)
or the extinguishing agent immediate discharge takes place if the evacuation time has elapsed during
the suspension period (for the ZW6 jumper set in pos. 2-3) – see point 5.3.
ID-E294-011GB
35
The lines connected to the above-mentioned inputs should be made of a two-wire screened cable
with resistance of no more than 2 x 50 Ω and resistance of insulation between cores of no more than
100 kΩ. All the lines connected to the controlling and monitoring inputs are supervised for a break
and short circuit. They should be ended with a 10 kΩ end-of-line resistor. The lines break and short
circuit is signalled by the control panel as a fault and it can be read from the LCD which circuit is
faulty. Unused inputs should be equipped with a 10 kΩ resistor connected to input terminals.
5.8.2 Extinguishing agent discharge controlling outputs
The control panel is equipped with three outputs that supply voltage of + 24 V through the P6, P7, P8
relays contacts (3 pairs of terminals No. 21...26) intended for control of electro-valves or other
equipment initiating the extinguishing agent release during the automatic fire extinguishing
procedure.
P6 – the relay supplies to the output an impulse of + 24 V with programmable duration at 0..30
min, since the end of preliminary warning (i.e. counting up the evacuation time).
P7 – the relay supplies to the output an impulse of + 24 V with programmable duration at 0..30
min, upon completion of the P6 relay impulse.
P8 – the relay supplies to the output an impulse of + 24 V with programmable duration at 0..30
min, upon supplying the signal to the “reserve release” output;, the P8 actuation is possible
when impulses from P6 and P7 relays are completed.
The resistance of the lines connected to these outputs should not exceed 2 x 50 Ω and the resistance
of the insulation between cores should be at least 100 kΩ. When not activated, the electro-valves
lines are supplied by the control panel with negative measuring voltage – 5 V, which allows their
efficiency monitoring with regard to a break and short circuit, but they require that 5.6 kΩ end-ofline resistors should be connected. In the active state, these circuits are not monitored due to low
winding resistance of various electro-valves. In order to separate the measuring voltage – 5 V from
the supply voltage + 24 V, the electro-valves should be attached to the line through a rectifying diode
connected in series, the power of which corresponds to the loading. The maximum loading of each
line should not exceed 2 A. The following drawing presents two connection diagrams. The first
diagram is for the releasing (initiating) elements with low resistance <100 Ω. In this case, the
measuring current (< 1 mA) flows through the releasing element (e.g. through the electro-valve
winding), which allows the control panel to detect a break in its circuit. The second diagram is for the
releasing elements with a higher resistance (R>100 Ω), where only line is supervised. The 5.6 kΩ endof-line resistor should be attached as close to the releasing element as possible.
36
ID-E294-011GB
The connection of initiating elements to the 23, 24 and 25, 26 terminals is identical.
5.8.3 Alarm devices indicators controlling outputs
The control panel is furnished with three outputs to supply + 24 V (± 15 %) voltage through the P9,
P10, and P11 relays contacts (3 pairs of terminals No. 27...32) used to connect:
- fire alarm equipment, e.g. external acoustic alarm devices (with disablement possibility– see
point 5.7), controlled with an interrupted signal from the 1st stage alarm occurrence, which
changes into a permanent one upon the evacuation alarm actuation, i.e. since the actuation
of the automatic fire extinguishing procedure – P9 (terminals No. 27, 28),
- optical and optical-acoustic evacuation alarm devices, controlled with a flashing signal during
the evacuation alarm – P10 (terminals No. 29, 30),
- optical warning alarm devices – P11 (terminals No. 31, 32), controlled with a flashing signal
since the extinguishing agent release until the control panel alarm mode reset.
The resistance of the alarm device lines should not exceed 2 x 50 Ω and the resistance of insulation
between cores should be at least 100 kΩ. During the quiescent mode, the alarm device circuits are
supplied by the control panel with negative measuring voltage – 5 V, which allows their efficiency
monitoring with regard to a break and short circuit, but requires the connection of 5.6 kΩ end-of-line
resistors. The maximum loading of each output to control indicators is 1A. In order to separate the
measuring voltage – 5 V from the supply voltage + 24 V, the alarm devices should be attached to the
line through a rectifying diode connected in series, the power of which is selected according to the
loading. Exemplary alarm devices circuits connections are shown in the following figures.
ID-E294-011GB
37
The connection of warning alarm devices to the 31 and 32 terminals is identical.
5.8.4 Unsupervised non-potential relay outputs
Universal relay outputs
The control panel is equipped with 2 programmable relays P1 (terminals 41, 42, 43) and P2 (terminals
44, 45, 46), which can send control signals to the external equipment, e.g.: smoke and heat dampers
release, ventilation switch off, manufacturing equipment switch off, etc. The P1, P2 relays can be
programmed to operate upon an occurrence of the most important states of the control panel. It is
possible to set the relays actuation delay until the occurrence of a specific criterion (except for the
situation when the reset state is treated as the criterion). The delay can be programmed within the
range of 0...10 min. The relays return to their initial state takes place during the control panel alarm
mode reset (or after the reset when the reset state is set as the relay criterion). The P1 and P2 relays
are programmable independently.
The P1 and P2 relays programming description is contained in point 5.4.3.
The fire alarm transmission devices output (the 2nd state alarm monitoring with a disablement
possibility of the TRANSMISSION button). In the control panel, there are 3 terminals (53, 54, 55)
connected to switch-over contacts of the P5 general alarm relay.
The 1st stage alarm monitoring. In the control panel, there are 3 terminals (50, 51, 52) connected to
switch-over contacts of the P4 preliminary alarm relay.
A fault monitoring. In the control panel, there are three terminals connected to switch-over contacts
of the P3 relay (terminals 47, 48, 49), which monitors the general fault.
In the case of any fault outage, the relay is in an active state. If the control panel detects at least one
fault, the relay contacts return to their initial static mode.
Monitoring outputs to superior fire protection system. In the control panel, there are six pairs of
terminals (No. 33...40 and 57...60) connected to non-potential relay contacts to allow sending signals
informing about the control panel most important modes:
P12 – “manual mode/handling”, the relay function depends on ZW3 jumper setting (see point 5.3,
table 1)
38
ID-E294-011GB
a) ZW3 – the 1-2 contacts closed
- the relay actuated upon the control panel door opening or switching into the 2nd access
level,
b) ZW3 – the 2-3 contacts closed
- the relay actuated in the manual operation mode.
P13 – “extinguishing”, closes contacts upon the extinguishing agent release depending on the ZW5
jumper setting (see point 5.3, table 1)
a) ZW5 – the 1-2 contacts closed
- on the basis of the control panel P6 relay controlling internal signal (EZ1),
b) ZW5 – the 2-3 contacts closed
- on the basis of the actual extinguishing agent release signal received from the “release
supervision” line
In both cases the relay is switched off upon the control panel alarm mode reset.
P14 – “general fault”, opens the contacts in the control panel fault mode (the contacts are closed
when there are no faults),
P15 – “extinguishing stop (suspension)”, closes the contacts when countdown of the time to
discharge is suspended (after the function actuation with the EXTINGUISHING STOP push
button)
P16 – “disable extinguishing”, closes the contacts when the control panel extinguishing
disablement is active,
P17 – “general alarm”, closes the contacts after the control panel enters the general (2nd stage)
alarm mode.
The relay is switched off upon the control panel alarm mode reset. The relay repeats the P5
relay operation. Pressing the TRANSMISSION push button disables (or re-enables) the P17
relay operation.
6 POWER SUPPLY
Basic power supply. The basic source of power supply to the control panel is the power network 230
V/50 Hz. Voltage fluctuations within the range of + 10 % to - 15 % do not affect the control panel
proper operation. The control panel simultaneous power supplying and buffering, or the attached
battery pack charging is ensured by the internal power supply unit, which generates constant voltage
of 24 V. The control panel power supply unit allows current draw of up to 2 A in the continuous way
and up to 3 A for a time limited to 0.5 h. At the system design stage, it is recommended to check
whether the total current to be drawn from the control panel power supply unit is not higher than
the above-mentioned values. In the check, it is necessary to consider the sum total of all the currents
drawn simultaneously from the control panel terminals, together with supply current of the control
panel itself. Attention should be paid to the admissible current values of individual outputs. In the
case of application of a higher amount of, for example, alarm devices and the admissible current
value is exceeded, it is necessary to provide an external power supply unit.
Reserve power supply. In the case of the mains voltage outage, the control panel reserve source of
power supply is a battery pack with rated voltage at 24 V and capacity at 7 Ah. Switching over from
the basic power supply to the reserve one takes place automatically, without any interruption in
supply. The operation time of the control panel supplied from the basic source, when no current is
drawn by accessories, is 72 h in the quiescent mode and additionally 0.5 h in the alarm mode with
average current draw at 1 A. During the quiescent mode, without basic power supply, with a
complete set of fire alarm warning devices installed in the detection lines, but without supplying
power to the accessories, the current drawn by the control panel does not exceed 90 mA.
The battery pack is charged automatically by the charger integrated with the control panel power
supply unit. The charging current is limited to approx. 1 A. When the pack is fully charged, the
charging current is almost zero and the buffering voltage should be 27.3 V (value set by the
ID-E294-011GB
39
manufacturer). It is possible to correct the buffering voltage value using the potentiometer accessible
through the round hole in the metal casing of the control panel power supply unit. This operation
should be carried out by a trained maintenance technician when the battery pack is fully charged or
when the batteries are disconnected.
The general efficiency of both the batteries and the charger is under continuous monitoring and any
faults are signalled. The battery is considered (by the control panel internal monitoring system) as
inefficient when its internal resistance will increase and is higher than 2 Ω.
The assembly, operation and disposal of the batteries should be performed in accordance with
instructions provided by the battery manufacturer. Worn out batteries should be obligatorily passed
to recycling according to the regulations in force.
Automatic power-off. During the operation of the control panel supplied from the battery pack only,
there is a gradual reduction in supply voltage, which is natural. The reserve supply voltage decrease
down to approx. 22 V is signalled acoustically. Further drop in the battery pack voltage and reaching
the final discharge voltage of approx. 21 V will automatically turn the control panel off. In the control
panel alarm mode, this function is disabled. It may be required to press the WŁ. AKU push button to
switch on the power supply again after an efficient battery pack is connected (unless the control
panel is turned on automatically). This button is available on the power supply board when the
control panel is open. The basic power supply resumption switches the control panel on
automatically.
7 INSTALLATION
7.1 CONTROL PANEL MOUNTING
The control panel should be mounted to the wall using three expansion bolts of at least 8 mm
diameter. The control panel mounting holes arrangement is shown in fig. 3. The control panel
mounting can be executed with removed batteries.
7.2 INPUT AND OUTPUT CIRCUITS CONNECTING TERMINALS AND WIRING SYSTEM
The control panel is equipped with a set of connecting terminals to attach the wiring of the alarm
system, extinguishing system, external devices and mains power supply. These terminals enable
connection of wires with the maximum diameter at 1.2 mm and cross-section at 1.5 mm².
For the connecting terminals view see fig. 5 and for their description and marking see fig. 4.
The detection, monitoring and controlling lines should be routed in accordance with the principles
applicable in telecommunication. They can be laid on wall, under plaster, in ground and as overhead
lines. The lines must be continuous and ended with end-of-line resistors. They cannot be installed
along the high voltage power cables.
The installation cables can enter the control panel from the semi-flush or on-surface wiring system.
They are inserted in the shortest way (without reserves) through the round openings located in the
upper part of the control panel – separately the mains and low-voltage cables. The endings of
unused cables should not be inserted into the control panel.
The detection line cables can enter the G-31 socket from the semi-flush (in-plaster) wiring system
only, through the middle hole with a rubber gland, and the G-35 socket from the semi-flush and onsurface wiring system, through the removed side throats in the socket base.
The mains power supply. To connect the 230 V / 50 Hz mains supply and protective conductor to the
control panel there are the L, N and PE mains terminals, which are protected against an accidental
touch by a special cover. The PE protective conductor should be connected directly to the screw on
the wall inside the control panel casing, accessible when the cover of the mains cable terminals is
removed – fig. 5. It is recommended to use a protective conductor of the cross-section at 2.5 mm².
Detection lines. Two pairs of terminals with marked polarity are provided to connect detection lines.
It is recommended that detection lines are routed with a screened cable, approved by the CNBOP
40
ID-E294-011GB
certificate, e.g. YnTKSYekw 1 x 2 x 0.8. Above the detection lines terminals, there are terminals for
connection of the cable screens to the control panel metal housing – fig. 5.
Input and output monitoring and controlling lines. They should be made of a screened cable, like
the detection lines. During their assembly, it is necessary to pay attention to the proper connection
in accordance with the terminals polarity.
Non-potential relay outputs. The contacts of the non-potential relays attached to the connecting
blocks are galvanically isolated from the control panel wiring systems. The lines connected to these
outputs do not have special requirements for screening; however the equipment they operate with
and supervise the circuits of (e.g. the monitoring equipment or superior fire protection system) may
have such requirements.
External devices power supply output. Two terminals supplying 24 V ± 15 % direct current are
designed in order to supply the external devices actuated, for example, from relay outputs. The
source of this voltage is the control panel power supply unit and reserve battery pack. The current
drawn from this output is summed up with the other power supply unit loads along with the current
drawn by the control panel, see point 6 “Basic power supply”.
Note:
When current is also drawn by the external devices, the assumed 72-hour working time of the
control panel supplied from batteries during the mains voltage outage will be reduced in proportion
to the current taken.
8 EVENT MEMORY
8.1 GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The IGNIS 1520M control panel is equipped with the memory of events that took place during the
facility supervision. The following occurrences are treated as events:
- fire alarms,
- actuation, suspension, resumption of the automatic fire extinguishing procedure,
discharging,
- any faults detected by the control panel and their repairs,
- confirmation of alarm or fault information receipt,
- change in configuration settings,
- alarm reset,
- zone switching into testing mode,
- alarm transmission actuation (general fire relay),
- disablement and re-enablement of alarm transmission/general fire relay.
Every event message contains the date and time of the occurrence and description of the event.
The control panel saves the signalled events on an automatic and current basis. After the whole
memory is full, i.e. 512 events saved, the following events are saved at the beginning of the memory
in the place of the former ones. It is possible to read out the recent events, up to 512, arranged by
the date and time of their occurrence. The readout is possible after the memory content has been
sent to an IBM-compatible PC via the control panel RS 232C serial interface. Data can be sent to the
PC after a special event memory reading software is run.
The contents of the entire event memory can be erased using the function described in point 5.4.2.
8.2 EVENT MEMORY CONTENTS READING SOFTWARE
8.2.1 Hardware requirements
a) A personal computer equipped with:
- a free serial port RS 232 (COM1 ÷ COM4);
- a hard disk with approx. 0.5 MB of free space:
ID-E294-011GB
41
the operating system of Windows 98/ME/2000/XP;
a floppy disk drive 1.44 MB (or any other equipment to allow recording by the software, e.g.
Internet connection);
b) A connection cable between the control panel and the PC;
In the case of a PC not equipped with the RS 232 port, it is possible to use the USB port. If this is the
case, it is necessary to buy a converter (an integrated cable available in computer accessories shops),
which provides the RS232 serial port communication over the USB serial bus after installation of the
relevant driver for Windows 98/ME/2000/XP.
-
8.2.2 Connection between PC and control panel
Before the software is run, it is necessary to connect the PC with the control panel. This operation
should be done with the PC off. The connection cable should be equipped with an 9-pin socket on
the control panel side and 9- or 25-pin socket, depending on the connector type in the PC, on the
other side.
In the case of the 9-pin cable and 25-pin PC output, it is possible to execute the connection using the
adapter available from shops with computer accessories. See below for how to connect the control
panel and PC using the cable suitable for 9- and 25-pin connector in the PC.
8.3 EVENT MEMORY READOUT SOFTWARE RUNNING
The software for event memory readout and the information materials are available from the web
site at www.polon-alfa.com.pl after getting an access code.
After the connection between PC and control panel is done, it is necessary to:
- turn the PC on;
- copy the igniswin file onto the hard disk;
- run the igniswin program;
- when the possibility to select the control panel type and serial port number is displayed on
the screen, select the type IGNIS 1520M and respectively COM1...COM4, depending on
which PC port the control panel is connected to;
- switch the control panel to the 2nd access level (by turning the key into vertical position);
- start transmission of the event memory content by keeping the ACKNOWLEDGEMENT button
pressed for approx. 5 sec in the control panel until the data transfer indicator on the PC
screen signals transmission.
The events ready for readout will be displayed in the programme “window”.
In order to print out the events, select the “print” option from the “file” menu.

connection of a PC (supplied from the mains) to the working control panel will result in
detection of earth fault by the control panel and the fault signalling. It is possible to disable
earth fault monitoring using the ZW1 jumper during the printout,
when visible errors (e.g. test offset, unreadable characters) or the transmission error
message occur, it is necessary to repeat the operation of data transmission from the control
panel to the PC.
9 CONTROL PANEL SPECIAL APPLICATIONS
9.1 EXPLOSION ENDANGERED PREMISES PROTECTION
It is possible to install fire detectors and manual call points within the zones with explosive mixtures
of gases and fluid vapours only in intrinsically safe detection circuits. Such circuits provide the [Ex ia
IIC] category. The intrinsically safe circuits in the IGNIS 1000 system can be created in detection lines
using the following types of intrinsically safe protective barriers:
- MTL 7728+ manufactured by MTL company,
- 9001/02-280-090-10 manufactured by STAHL company,
- 9002/11-280-293-00 manufactured by STAHL company,
or using the following intrinsically safe separators manufactured by STAHL company:
- one-channel of 9167/13-11-00s type;
- two-channel of 9167/23-11-00s type.
The use of a barrier or separator imposes limitations in the detection line parameters, the total
resistance of which should not exceed 2 x 30 Ω. The line should be ended with a 5.6 kΩ end-of-line
resistor and the admissible quiescent current of intrinsically safe fire alarm warning devices should
not exceed 0.5 mA, while their number should not be higher than 10.
In the intrinsically safe circuits, it is allowed to install the 30Ex POLON model range detectors, e.g.
DIO-37Ex; TNP-35Ex; TUP-35Ex; PUO-35Ex; TUN –38Ex.
A barrier or separator connection into a detection line causes that the control panel may signal a
short circuit in the intrinsically safe circuit in an ambiguous way – as a fire or as a fault.
The intrinsically safe barrier (unlike the separator) must be grounded and the grounding resistance
should not exceed 1 Ω. It is installed in a safe zone, between the control panel and intrinsically safe
circuit. In the IGNIS 1520M control panel, it is necessary to disable the earth fault signalling by
switching the ZW1 jumper (on the power supply board). Otherwise, the barrier earthing will result in
the control panel circuits earth fault signalling. The STAHL 9002/11-280-293-00 barrier usage allows
for the detection line extension up to 2 x 40 Ω and does not require the earth fault signalling
disablement.
10 OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE
10.1 GENERAL PRINCIPLES
The control panel unfailing operation depends on maintaining appropriate operating conditions,
power supply voltage, battery condition and periodical inspections performance.
Fire alarm detection systems and automatic extinguishing controllers, as safety installations, must be
continuously kept at full efficiency. The premises user is obliged to ensure proper the installation
maintenance that should be carried out by an Authorised Service Station. It is recommended that
maintenance technicians are trained in functioning, installation and operation of fire signalling
systems by the manufacturer.
The maintenance technician should thoroughly study this manual. He should know exactly the
operating principles of the control panel and other devices interoperating with it. In case ionization
smoke detectors are installed in the system, the maintenance technician must possess an
appropriate permission to install and service such detectors issued by a proper nuclear energy
authority.
ID-E294-011GB
43
10.2 PERIODICAL INSPECTIONS
Frequency of periodical inspections. The manufacturer recommends that periodical tests should be
performed at least once every 6 months. In the case of the system difficult working conditions (high
humidity, corrosive environment, dustiness, etc.), the system user, in agreement with the designer
and maintenance technician, should increase the frequency of periodical inspections.
The periodical testing consists in:
event memory readout (using a computer), in order to check the control panel attending
personnel appropriate work and possible signals indicated by the control panel;
inspection (testing) of the control panel every signalling diode and acoustic alarm device;
consecutive testing of every fire detector (e.g. using fire factor imitators) and manual call
points installed in detector lines, utilising the control panel appropriate testing functions;
visual evaluation of the fire detectors technical condition (level of dirt, corrosion, permanent
soil) and of manual call points, especially in the case of their longer operation, that should be
carried out during a device testing;
if necessary, cleaning of the fire detectors and their replacement or regeneration;
checking the external alarm devices and connected protective and fire fighting devices
according to the manufacturer’s guidelines;
battery checking – pursuant to the manufacturer’s instructions.
Buffering voltage level checking – according to the ‘reserve power supply’ p. 6.
A properly operating and regularly inspected control panel does not require any special maintenance
works.
10.3 FUSE REPLACEMENT
The control panel is equipped with two melting fuses in the following circuits:
- reserve batteries charging – 3.15 A of T3, 15 L250 type;
- common for the external device power supply outputs – 3.15 A of T3, 15 L250 type.
Both fuses are accessible after the control panel opening.
11 PACKING, STORAGE AND TRANSPORTATION
Packing. The control panel is placed in a unit packing, reducing free movement possibility and
eliminating damage occurrence during loading and transportation.
The following data are marked on the package:
- the name and/or the trademark of the manufacturer;
- the name and the type of the control panel;
Additionally, the following marking is placed on the package:
“CAUTION FRAGILE”, “UPPER SIDE, DON’T TURN OVER”, “KEEP DRY” or equivalent marks according
to the PN-85/0-79252 Polish Standard.
Storage. The control panel should be stored in closed premises at a temperature between + 5 0C and
+ 40 0C and relative humidity not exceeding 80 %, free of corrosive vapours and gases. In case the
control panel is stored for a longer period, it is necessary to connect it to a power supply for at least
1 hour and execute operation tests every 6 months.
During storage the control panel should not be exposed to heat radiation: direct sun light or heating
devices.
Transportation. The control panels should be carried in closed transport means, taking into
consideration the transport recommendations marked on the package, and protecting them against
sharp shocks and avoiding ambient temperature exceeding the – 25 0C to + 55 0C range.
