General System Description
It is assumed that the 8000C fire alarm control panel and the associated system equipment have
been installed in accordance with the manufacturer instructions and guidance given in
BS5839 Part 1.
The System 8000C is suitable for installation in commercial and industrial facilities. The modular
design of products allows the fire detection and alarm system to be expanded to meet future
customer needs. The application of intelligent fire detectors connect to the panels’ analog loop
provide an early and reliable warning of fire.
An analog loop can have up to 127 devices and each device can be assigned to up to 127 zones,
with an overall loop cable length of up to one kilometre. An analog loop is a two-wire circuit that is
monitored at both ends. The 8000C fire alarm control panel automatically registers the wiring of the
loop and determines the logical addresses of the individual devices on the analog loop.
A range of devices can be connected to an analog loop circuit, such as fire detectors, technical
alarm modules (TAL) and transponders. The transponders are loop devices with programmable
inputs and outputs, for activating and monitoring external equipment such as display panels, alarm
devices, door closer unit and other equipment.
The network module allows up to 31 fire alarm control panels (8000C) to be connected in a
network. At any fire alarm control panel in the network it is possible to view indications of fire
events of the entire networked system and operate essential controls under emergency conditions
and operate other control functions, such as disablement of zone. Events such as fire, fault,
disablement and others events are transmitted to all fire alarm control panels in the network.
These Operating Instructions are intended to aid users of the 8000C fire alarm control panel and
should be read in conjunction with the instructions provided by your specialised installer. All the
documentation associated with the fire alarm system should be kept together near the fire alarm
control panel. If you have any questions, please consult your specialised installer.
The operation of the fire alarm control panel may only be carried out by authorised and trained
persons observing safety precautions and, if necessary, in collaboration with the other
organisations (e.g. fire department).
Page 4
Fire Alarm Control Panel 8000C
User Responsibility
1.1
User Responsibility
It is recommended that the persons responsible for the fire alarm system should become familiar
with:
how to operate the controls.
and interpret the indications given.
Daily
BS 5839:Part 1:1988, states that the system should be inspected daily to ensure
that a normal indication is given at the control and indicating equipment and:
that any previously indicated fault and disablement condition has received appropriate
attention.
all the system events are entered into the Log Book for future reference.
that the use of the area(s) inspected has not changed since the system was designed.
and no unsafe practices that could lead to fire are being undertaken.
Weekly
A different Fire detector or Manual Call Point of the system should be tested to ensure the
system is capable of operating under alarm condition.
The operation of the alarm sounders should be checked to also remind those occupying the
premises that there is a fire alarm system with a particular sound.
The test should be performed at a regular time to avoid confusion between a test and a
genuine fire alarm.
Quarterly
At quarterly intervals the system should be inspected and a trained maintenance engineer
should carry out any work necessary.
Contact your servicing organisation for help with service and maintenance work.

Delay and Verify Alarms
A switching time can be viewed under the menu option Time functions by the operator of the fire
alarm control panel. The Delay and Verify Alarms switching times are programmed in the customer
data by the installer.
If a fire alarm occurs during the active delay period and the Verify button is pressed during the
delay time, the delay time extended by the verification time. Both delay and verification times are
programmed in the customer data (max. 600 seconds) of the fire alarm control panel. During the
delay time the cause of the alarm can be investigated.
After the expiry of the delay and the verification times the alarms are activated can be inhibited by
pressing the panel reset button once the emergency is over.
Fig. 36: Entering the switching delay time
(cdm353)
If the switching time for Alarm delay / Verify alarm has been programmed in the customer data by
the installer, the first switch-on time and the first switch-off time is accepted as valid switching
time. The additional switching time is entered under this menu option Time functions are not valid.
Exceptional days can be specified in the customer data programming on which the automatic delay
alarms / Verify Alarm times programmed by the installer will not take effect.
Example:
Customer data programming:
Switch on 06.30, switch off 21.30
Operator's entry under this menu option:
Switch on 10.00, switch off 15.00
Valid switching time:
Switch on 06.30, switch off 15.00
Please consult your installer to find out whether the function Delay/Verify has been
programmed in the customer data of your fire alarm control panel. If this function is not
activated, e.g. for technical reasons or other requirements, the functions described in this
section can not be used.

with its connected zones and loop devices can be Enabled/Reset or Disabled using the keyboard.
The Loop State is indicated on the panel’s display.
Fig. 43: Entering the analog loop number
(cdm358)
Analog loop refers to:
all analog loop modules installed in the fire alarm control panel
(including the analogue loop circuit with all associated its devices)
all 4-zone-modules included in the fire alarm control panel
(including all zones and devices connected to this module)
certain modules such as relays or the interface on the basic/peripheral module
Definition of Analog Loop identification number
The loop identification number for a 8000C Panel will be as follows:
Where the Analog loop module in fitted in the slot of the Field device module,
this is Loop 121.
The loop number is derived from the individual subassemblies of the 8000C fire alarm control
panel. The subassemblies can be switched on/off using the internal analog (primary) loop
number, which is entered on the panel keyboard and is also programmed with the customer data
editor. This internal primary loop number is composed of the panel number, the slot and the
subassembly number.

Fire Alarm Control Panel 8000C
Operation
5.1.2 Sensor functions (loop)
This function allows sensing elements of the multi-sensor fire device on a loop to be switched off
(disabled). For example it is possible to switch off (disable) all O sensing element
(Optical = photoelectric sensor) or all I sensing element (I = ionisation smoke sensors) or in OHI
multi-sensor fire devices the OI sensing element installed on an analog loop.
Disabling sensing elements is only possible for OH and OHI multi-sensor fire devices. These
sensing elements are only fitted on two or three different type of sensors.
If all the OI sensing elements are required to be switched off (disabled) on the loop then select 2.
OI – Sensor off. For OHI multi-sensor detectors on a loop the OI sensing elements are switched off
(disabled). The third element remains active, which is the heat sensor element. Disabling the heatsensing element (H sensors) is not possible.

OT detector

(OT= Optical and thermal sensor)
OTI detector

(OTI= Optical-, Thermal- and ionisation sensors)
Switching off sensors is only possible for OH and OHI multi-sensor fire detectors. If multisensor fire detectors and standard detectors (detectors with a single sensor) are installed
together in an analog loop, only the sensor in multi-sensor detectors are switched off.
Fire Alarm Control Panel 8000C
Page 45
Operation
Example to switch off (disable) sensors on analog loop
Press key "2" to select the `Sensor function (loop)’ or use the scroll keys to highlight and enter
the selection.
Enter the analog loop number on which the sensors are required to be switched.
Enter the number of the desired function (1 = O sensor off, 2 = OI sensor off, 3 = I sensor off, 4
= all sensors on) or make the selection using the scroll keys and press Enter key.
The switching off (disabling) of sensors is only possible for OH and OHI multi-sensor fire
detectors. Note only the selected sensing element is switched off (disabled).
Switching on/off not permitted
The switching on/off of the detector sensing elements on an analog loop is indicated on the display
of the fire alarm control panel.
If sensors have already been switched off on an analog loop and there are no further sensors to
switch off, then the display will show a message "Switch on/Disablement not permitted". This will be
the case for example if I sensors have been switched off and there are no I sensors left to switch
off or a zone disablement has been detected.
In an analog loop, it is generally possible to execute a disconnection function, e.g. disable
detectors or call points, when no further lower-order disable functions have been carried out. That
is when individual detectors within a zone have been disabled, this zone cannot be additionally
disabled, as the disabled functions for this zone has been carried out. However, it is possible to
switch off other zones of this analog loop in which sensors/detectors have not been disabled.
In order to change the existing sensor switching status, all switched off (disabled) detector sensors
must first be switched on, using the command `All sensors on’. After all detector sensors have been
switched on, a further switching off (disablement) can be performed.
Page 46
Fire Alarm Control Panel 8000C
Service Level
5.1.3 Sensor functions (zone/detector)
This function allows individual devices or entire zones to be switched off on an analog loop.
By entering the zone and/or detector number(s) and by making the required `switch off’/on’ the
appropriate device(s) are switched.
If a zone number is entered (device number = 0) and the desired sensor switch-off is performed on
all the multi-sensor detectors in this zone. All sensors must first be switched on in the zone before
desired sensors can be switched off.
(See also above Sensor function loop)
Fig. 45: Sensor function related to zones/detectors
(cdm360)
Switching off sensors is only applicable for OH and OHI multi-sensor fire detectors. If multisensor fire detectors and single function detectors are installed on an analog loop, then only
the detectors having multi-sensors are switched off.
If a switch-off has already been performed, e.g. the sensors of a zone have been switched
off, the zone or the entire analog loop cannot be subsequently switched off. It is possible to
switch off other zones of this analog loop in which detectors or sensors have not been
switched off.
