The Cookson Company TEST A FIRE PLUS Control Module is designed to work in conjunction with the TEST
A FIRE or FIREFLY II PLUS control circuits to provide advance performance control functions to motorized
doors incorporating reversing feature safety edges. The TEST A FIRE PLUS Module is compatible with most
single phase 110 volt operators utilizing 24 volt control transformers. Do not install this unit without a reversing feature safety edge.
The TEST A FIRE PLUS Control Module is in an inactive state and does not interfere with normal operation of
the motorized door in it's supervisory (non-alarm) condition. When an alarm condition is generated, the TEST A
FIRE PLUS Module, operating in conjunction with the TEST A FIRE or FIREFLY II PLUS, turns on optional
emergency warning appliances and after the factory set delay signals the operator to close the door. The TEST A
FIRE PLUS Module functions as follows; a) No obstruction is encountered during the downward travel, the
door will stop in it's closed position and the door closure warning devices will be turned off. The door system
remains active allowing for emergency egress through the Open push button station., b) An obstruction is encountered, the door will reverse to an open position and repeat the attempt to close two more times. On the third
attempt, the motor will be turned off upon contact and the door will rest on the obstruction. Emergency signalling
devices will remain active. If the obstruction is removed, after a three second delay to clear the opening, the
motor will receive a signal closing the door. If the Open button is depressed while the door is resting on the
obstruction, the door will fully open, reset it's cycle counter and fully close (no obstruction encountered). If the
alarm condition is cleared while the door is resting on the obstruction, the door will automatically travel to it's fully
open position and stop. Emergency signalling appliances will be turned off and the door system will be reset.
Power must be available to the operator in all conditions for the system to operate. In absence of power to the
operator, standard logic incorporated into the battery supported FIREFLY II PLUS/TEST A FIRE, as well as the
FIREFLY II PLUS, will initiate a mechanical release to close the door.

Note: The TEST A FIRE PLUS Module is compatible with both the TEST A FIRE and FIREFLY II PLUS release devices.
Connections referred to on the TEST A FIRE control board are common to the FIREFLY II PLUS.
SEE Figure 2 of TEST A FIRE and FIREFLY II PLUS manual & 2A depicted herein- Verify wiring configuration with that
recommended by door manufacturer for use of this product with specific door operator and accessories being utilized. All
wiring beginning at step 4 is low voltage. 18 gauge wire is recommended.
1. Turn off power supply sources for Model C as well as motor before beginning.
2. Verify voltage rating of release device toTEST A FIRE power source being utilized. Model voltage is indicated on side of unit.
3. Connect power source inputs to TB5, screws 1 & 2. On 24vdc units observe proper polarity by placing positive (+) wire
to screw 1. TB5 screw 3 shall be utilized for earth ground where applicable. (DO NOT connect battery)
4. Normally closed initiating devices - remove jumper from TB1 screw 2 & 3. Connect wiring from N/C initiating device loop to
TB1 screws 2 & 3. Auxiliary power (+12vdc) for smoke detectors may be obtained from TB2. Observe proper polarity, TB2-2

Section D - TEST PROCEDURES: To be performed by factory authorized personnel only
Testing shall be performed and witnessed for proper operation.
Testing of the TEST A FIRE PLUS does not affect normal operation of alarm system. Testing of the TEST A FIRE PLUS is
independent of and shall in no way be interpreted as an alternative method of testing the central fire alarm system or any
other components comprising the system. Testing of individual components shall be tested in accordance with installation
instructions provided by the manufacturers of the system components.
CAUTION: CLEAR DOOR OPENINGAND PROHIBIT TRAFFIC THROUGH OPENING DURING TESTING!
Power up sequence. : Door should be in closed position at power up. If door is in open position, a door closure will be generated. This is a normal condition.
Turn on power to TEST A FIRE and operator. The red L.E.D. will light on the TEST A FIRE indicating primary power is
present. The Trouble sounder on the TEST A FIRE will begin to sound. Connect battery observing proper polarity. The
trouble sounder will be silenced and the green battery L.E.D. will illuminate indicating the battery is connected and charging.
Depress OPEN push button station, fully raising door (Door must be fully raised, with limit switches set properly to begin
testing).
Before testing of system, verify normal operation of close, open, stop and safety edge features of operator.
Test procedures.
A) Turn keyed remote test station to TEST position (if using chassis mount test button it must remain depressed for testing).
Annunciator will turn on and after factory delay of approximately ten seconds the door will begin to close through the motor.
The TEST A FIRE PLUS Module reset indicator should illuminate at this time. When the door reaches full closure the motor
will be turned off along with the annunciators. Return TEST station to OFF position. Depress OPEN push button raising door
to it's fully open position.
B) Place chair or other suitable, easily removable obstruction in path of door closure. Turn keyed remote test station to TEST
position (if using chassis mount test button it must remain depressed for testing). The cycle counter reset indicator on the
TEST A FIRE PLUS Module should illuminate at this time. Annunciator will turn on and after factory delay of approximately
ten seconds the door will begin to close through the motor. When the door encounters the obstruction, the reversing edge will
reverse the door to it's fully open position. The reset indicator will turn off. The door will immediately make a second attempt
at closure, contact obstruction and reverse to it's fully open position turning on the Stop Enable indicator. When contact is
made with the obstruction on the third cycle the motor will be turned off immediately and the door will rest on the obstruction.
The Stop Enable and Obstruction Stop indicators will both be illuminated. Remove the obstruction. After approximately a three
second delay to clear the opening the door will be close thru the operator. Return TEST station to OFF position. Depress
OPEN push button and raise to fully open position.
C) Repeat step B until door stops on obstruction. Return TEST station to OFF position. Door will return to it's fully open
position. This feature simulates an automatic reset of the door should the alarm condition be cleared or reset before the
obstruction is removed.
D) Repeat step B until door stops on obstruction. With system still in TEST, push OPEN button station. The door will fully
open allowing for removal of obstruction. With the alarm condition still present (TEST switch activated) the TEST A FIRE
PLUS counter will be reset and the door will close immediately. Obstruction cycling will repeat if the obstruction has not been
removed. Return TEST station to OFF position and depress OPEN push button station returning door to it's normal condition.
E) Power Loss Test. Turn off power to operator and FIREFLY PLUS or TEST A FIRE. The internal battery fo the operator
will support the release device and control logic. Turn TEST switch toTest position. After 10 second alarm delay a mechanical
closure will be performed. This verifies release capability in absence of power to operator. Return TEST switch to OFF
position. Reset door and restore all power.
REMINDER: Testing of the TEST A FIRE PLUS does not affect normal operation of alarm system. Testing of the TEST A
FIRE PLUS is independent of and shall in no way be interpreted as an alternative method of testing the central fire alarm
system or any other components comprising the system. Testing of individual components shall be tested in accordance with
installation instructions provided by the manufacturers of the system components.
