The AIR-Intelligence™ SmartONE® APIC is an interface
module designed to provide seamless integration
between AIR-Intelligence detectors and fire alarm/suppression control panels using the SmartOne Signaling
Line Circuit (SLC) protocol. The SmartONE APIC card
reports the Aspirating Smoke Detector as an “AIM.”
The SmartONE APIC has two distinct modes of operation:
• Single Address mode
• Multi-Address mode
In single address mode, the SmartONE APIC is connected directly to a detector main circuit board, using a
ribbon cable.
In multi-address mode, the SmartONE APIC is connected
to a command module using a ribbon cable. The command module is connected to a SenseNET loop containing multiple detectors, and the SmartONE APIC acts as
the interface between all these detectors and the control
panel. The SmartONE APIC senses whether it is connected to a single detector or a command module when
powered up. Therefore, no changes to the SmartONE
APIC are required, in order to specify the addressing
Note: In either mode, any change to a detector address
must be made manually to the detector or
SmartONE card. The control panel can not be
used to change a detector’s address.
Single Address Mode
When the interface is set to single address mode, the
card is set to a single address on the SLC, and the detector status is read from that address.
The 2 hex switches on the SmartONE APIC card, shown
as HEX1 (second decimal place) and HEX2 (first decimal
place), are used to specify the address.
In single address mode, the address can be any value
between 1 and 255 (inclusive).

card is ignored by the SmartONE APIC. The address set
on the SmartONE APIC card will be the address that is
used by the control panel.
Note: If AIR-Intelligence Remote 3 software is used on
the detector, the address it sees will be the
address set on the detector’s dip switches.
Multi-Address Mode
Multi-address mode is used when using a single SmartONE APIC card to monitor the status of multiple detectors on a Command Module loop. The SmartONE APIC is
mounted within the Command Module.
In multi-address mode, the hex switches on the SmartONE APIC card are not used. Instead, the address of
each detector is set using the detector’s dip switches. In
multi-address mode, the address of each detector can be
any value between 1 and 127 (inclusive).
The APIC card returns the following status modes, which
are interpreted by the control unit:
• Normal
• PC Line Trouble
• Low Airflow Trouble
• High Airflow Trouble
• Detector Trouble
• Isolation Trouble
• Pre-Alarm
• Fire
Input Voltage:
• 20.4 to 28.0 Vdc
Operating Current:
• 100µA
Operating Conditions:
• Temperature: - 32ºF to 120ºF (0ºC to 49ºC)
• Relative Humidity: - 0-85%
• 4 in. x 2-3/4 in.(102 mm x 68 mm)
