CPS Fire Safety
Up to 32 MFD devices
Up to 8 Fire Detection Zones
Up to 68 Fire Peripherals inputs (LHD, Manual Call points...)
Up to 33 Fire Protection Outputs (Extinguishing activation …)
FSVCU is a compact fire control panel that can process signals from MFD devices
It centralize Fire Events with Synthetic I/O indication:
- System Fire Alarm:
- 1 Dry Contact for Fire Alarm Indication (safety output)
- 8 Dry Contacts for Fire Alarm Zones Indication
- System Monitoring:
- 1 Dry Contact for System Failure Indication (Inoperative System)
- 1 Dry Contact for Component Failure Indication (Degraded mode on MFD,
It centralize Fire Events with detailed information on communication bus:
- System Status Detailed Information:
- Alarm information at component level (device identification, fire type,
event logs…)
- Failure information at component level (device failure identification,
troubleshoo-ting data code…)
- Preventive Maintenance Information:
- Degraded Modes management (MFD cleaning warning, cabling failures)
It records Fire Events with detailed information on communication bus:
- Fire events recording with Timestamp (relative time)
- Failure events recording with failure identification and troubleshooting data
It provides 4 monitored inputs for connection of LHD (Linear Heat Detector) or
Manual call points
The control panel can be used as a stand-alone unit or connected to a Train
Communication System
Using the user-friendly engineering tool CMT (Configuration Management Tool),
the control panels can be configured to create a customized solution
Support 3 nominal train voltages: 24VDC, 72VDC and 110VDC
Functional elements
Front panel
Following connectors are located on the front panel:
- MFD devices CAN Loop (2xSUBD-9)
- TCMS Ethernet (M12)
- CMT Ethernet (M12)
In addition, 3 led’s visible from outside can display the following indications:
- Green/Red: power ON
- Orange/Red: Alarm/Fault
- Yellow: Ready
Rear panel
Following connectors are located on the rear panel:
- Rear Panel Connector (F48)
- Power Supply (72VDC ..110VDC)
- Safety Dry Contacts (ALARM, FAULT, READY)
- Fire Peripherals I/O (LHD, Sounders…)
- Discrete Inputs (TEST, INHIBIT)
The Configuration Management Tool (CMT) permits the system to be adapted to
specific customers' requirements. It allows to configure zones, number of MFD devices per zone, zone behavior and combine alarm events.
During commissioning and/or maintenance operations, the CMT provides high level
diagnostic information's.
