Having Jurisdiction. Only trained, qualified and competent individuals should install, program and/or service the PFC4410-RC and PFC-4410A-RC. Competent people would be aware of these warnings, limitations, and requirements.
The abort circuit will not abort the release or stop the predischarge timer activated by zones programmed as MANUAL
RELEASE. If it is desired to have the abort circuit stop the release activated from a Manual Dump zone, program that
zone as a CONVENTIONAL zone instead.
High voltage electrocution hazard. Do not handle live AC wiring or work on the device while ac power is active.
This manual is designed to help with the specification, installation, and programming of the PFC-4410-RC and
PFC-4410A-RC release panel. It is imperative that this manual be completely read and understood before the installation
or programming of the panel. Save this manual for future reference.
Zones programmed as MANUAL RELEASE will override any cross zoning features. If it is desired to not have a manual
station override the cross zoning, program the zone as CONVENTIONAL and map accordingly.
Per ULC requirements; if this equipment is running on battery power only, it will shut off and cease to operate when the
battery voltage reaches approximatly 19-20 volts.
*Locate the panel and all system components in the following nominal environment:
*Temperature 32-120°F, Humidity 93% non-condensing.
*Verify that the wire sizes are adequate for all initiating, notification, and release circuits.
*Make certain the panel is properly grounded.

Smoke detectors may not detect smoke when the smoke does not reach the detector. Such as smoke within walls, on the
other side of walls, on other floors, behind closed doors, explosions, etc. Smoke detectors will not operate if they are not
properly connected to the fire/release panel. The detectors and bases must be UL listed as being compatible with the panel.
The detectors have a visible flashing light that indicates power is supplied to the detectors.
Notification appliances may not alert people if the people are not able to hear or see the appliances such as if they are in
separate areas of the building or room.
A fire alarm/release panel will not operate without electrical power. The panel must have sufficient backup battery
capability to power the panel for a specified amount of time in the event of an AC power failure. The batteries and release
panel shall be tested and maintained in accordance with the testing and maintenance requirements of NFPA72.
In order for emergency forces, (Fire departments, etc.), to respond to events associated with this panel, the panel must
transmit trouble, supervisory, and alarm signals to a monitoring facility either directly or through a main building fire

THREE PROGRAMMABLE MODES OF OPERATION
·
MOMENTARY (NON-LATCHING) CIRCUIT
Mode 1 – (ULI) Activation of the abort circuit stops the pre-discharge timer at 10 seconds. If there is less than 10 seconds
remaining, the time goes back to 10 seconds. Releasing the abort switch starts the timer at 10 seconds.
Mode 2 – (IRI) Operates the same as the ULI mode except the abort circuit only functions if the abort button is pressed before the
second alarm is received by the panel. The panel must be programmed for cross zoning for the IRI mode to function.
Mode 3 – (NYC) This mode is not UL listed. Activation of the Abort circuit during the pre-discharge countdown adds 90 seconds
to the original pre-discharge time. This is a one-time feature. Repeated pressing of the abort button has no effect.
Zones programed as Manual Release cannot be aborted. If it is necessary to abort a manual station zone, program that zone as
Conventional.
If the pre-discharge timer is set at 0 the abort circuit will not stop the release circuit.
NFPA 12 prohibits the use of abort circuits on Suppression Systems deploying carbon dioxide.
LOW/MISSING BATTERY:
Causes battery and system trouble if battery falls below 22 volts. Battery circuit is fused and reverse polarity
protection is provided.
INPUT POWER:
• Universal Input 120VAC, (60 Hz, 165VA) or 220VAC, (50 Hz, 185VA) 15 Amp Branch Line overcurrent
protection required.
• Backlight on LCD goes off on AC power loss
• AC Power indicator on LED annunciator module goes off on AC power loss (PFC-4410A-RC only)
• System trouble is also generated if voltage drops below 102V.

Resetting the QRS:
1. Follow the valve manufacturers instructions to reset the valve.
2. When procedure calls for the system piping to be pressurized, proceed as follows:
3. Press the bottom SYSTEM RESET button, then immediately move the program switch to the right. Display will
read "OK to charge system". Begin to apply pressure to the system. (NOTE - you will have 30 minutes to charge the
system.)
4. When system pressure reaches the intended pressure, return the program switch back to the left.
5. Wait 60 seconds before testing the QRS.
NOTE: If more than 30 minutes will be required to fill the system, you must restart the countdown before 30 minutes
have elapsed. The system pressure must be above 8 PSI to restart the countdown.
To restart the countdown, flip the program switch position back to the left and then quickly back to the right; this will
start a new 30 minute countdown.
The control valve should be in the closed position during the procedure to prevent waterflow in case of inadvertent
operation of the QRS.
To view the history buffer or make programming changes, slide the program switch to the right then press the top SET

The following programs are for chemical or gas extinguishing systems. Selecting the CHEMICAL mode allows the use of a predischarge timer and an abort circuit. The timer defaults to 60 seconds for all alarm zones programmed as other than MANUAL
RELEASE. The MANUAL RELEASE default timer is 30 seconds. The system offers the programmer the ability to change the
pre-discharge times.
Systems intended for the release of Halon 1301 as described in NFPA 12A, or clean agents as described in NFPA 2001, shall
have provision for a pre-discharge notification circuit. If this signal is required to be separate and/or distinct from the evacuation
signal, two notification circuits are required.
One shall be programmed as FIRST ALARM. It will provide a steady output upon activation of any initiating zone programmed
as an alarm zone. This is the evacuation signal.
This output will change to a temporal signal upon activation of the release circuit. This is the discharge signal.
The other notification circuit shall be programmed as SECOND ALARM. It will provide a steady output upon activation of a
second initiating zone programmed as an alarm zone. This is when the pre-discharge timer would start and would be the predischarge signal. If a temporal signal is required, notification appliances such as Amseco model HW-24R or others that can
produce a temporal tone shall be used. This allows the use of strobes and horns on the same circuit. If a separate signal for
discharge were required, a third notification circuit would be used that would be programmed to operate whenever the release
circuit is activated.
Zones programmed as Manual Release can not be aborted. If it is necessary to abort a manual release zone, that zone must be
programmed as Conventional.
If the pre-discharge timer is set at 0, the abort circuit will not stop the release.
.
NFPA 12 prohibits the use of abort circuits on suppression systems deploying carbon dioxide.
Systems intended for the release of Halon 1301 in accordance with NFPA 12A and/or clean agents in accordance with NFPA 2001
shall be provided with a mechanical manual release system.
NOTE:
Notification outputs do not provide synchronization. If synchronization is required, use Amseco SMD10-3A or equivalent. The
notification appliances shall be compatible with the sync' module selected. The current requirements of the appliances, wire
gauge and length of wire run determine the maximum number of appliances that can be connected to one NAC. The maximum
can not exceed 1 amp or whatever the maximum that the sync' module can support, whichever is lower.

INITIATING ZONE DESCRIPTION
This allows the user to describe the initiating zones. Nine different descriptions are available. They are:
1) CONVENTIONAL - These include smoke detectors, pull stations, heat detectors and other devices
put on a conventional zone.
2) WATERFLOW - Alarms from waterflow zones are non-silenceable
3) LINEAR HEAT DETECTION - These use a special wire with a fuseable insulation
4) MANUAL RELEASE - Used to override cross zoning and cause instant release
5) LOW AIR ALARM – This is for a low air switch used in a double interlock system. Usually cross zoned with a smoke or heat
detector. Activation of this zone creates a supervisory condition on the panel but can still operate the release circuit.
6) SUPERVISORY - For monitoring any supervisory function as assigned
7) TAMPER - For control valve monitoring
8) LOW AIR - Used to detect low air pressure
9) HIGH AIR - Used to detect high air pressure
The first four descriptions (CONVENTIONAL, WATERFLOW, LINEAR HEAT DETECTION and MANUAL
RELEASE) are Alarm Zones. When activated, they will put the panel into alarm and operate the appropriate output as well as
operating the alarm relay.
The 5th description (LOW AIR ALARM) creates a supervisory condition on the panel but can be used to activate the release
circuit. This activates the Supervisory relay not the Alarm relay.
The last four descriptions (SUPERVISORY, TAMPER, LOW AIR and HIGH AIR) are Supervisory Zones. When
activated, they will put the panel in a supervisory condition and activate any output described as “SUPERVISORY BELL”. They
cannot activate the release circuit

Maximum allowed battery size for UL applications is 12AH. FM and others may require more than
24 hours of standby time and may use larger batteries. Batteries rated above 12AH require a separate
battery cabinet (Potter Model BC-2). Mark the purchase date on the batteries. Test the batteries at
least semi annually according to the battery test methods in NFPA72 or the battery maunfacturers
instructions. Replace the batteries if they either fail the test or after four years of use. The PFC-4410RC and the PFC-4410A-RC are capable of charging 24 AH batteries, (FM Applications only).

(a) Separation from Electric Light, Power, Class 1, and NPLFA Circuit Conductors.
(1) In Cables, Compartments, Enclosures, Outlet Boxes, or Raceways. Power-limited circuit
conductors shall not be placed in any cable, compartment, enclosure, outlet box, raceway, or similar fitting
containing conductors of electric light, power, Class 1, or nonpower-limited fire alarm circuit conductors.
Exception No. 1: Where the conductors of electric light, power, Class 1, or nonpower-limited fire alarm
circuit conductors are separated by a barrier from the power-limited fire alarm circuits. In enclosures,
power-limited fire alarm circuits shall be permitted to be installed in a raceway within the enclosure to
separate them from Class 1, electric light, power, and nonpower-limited fire alarm circuits.
Exception No. 2: Conductors in compartments, enclosures, device boxes, outlet boxes, or similar
fittings, where electric light, power, Class 1, or nonpower-limited fire alarm circuit conductors are
introduced solely to connect to the equipment connected to power-limited circuits to which the other
conductors are connected, and
a. The electric light, power, Class 1, and nonpower-limited fire alarm circuit conductors are routed
to maintain a minimum of 0.25 in. (6,35mm) separation from the conductors and cables of power-limited fire
alarm circuits, or
b. The circuit conductors operate at 150 volts or less to ground and also comply with one of the
following:
1. The fire alarm power-limited circuits are installed using Types FPL, FPLR, FPLP or
permitted substitute cables, provided these power-limited cable conductors extending beyond the jacket are
separated by a minimum of 0.25 in. (6,35mm) or by a nonconductive sleeve or nonconductive barrier from
all other conductors, or
2. The fire alarm power-limited circuit conductors are installed as nonpower-limited fire alarm
circuits in accordance with Section 760-25.
Exception No. 3: Conductors entering compartments, enclosures, device boxes, outlet boxes, or
similar fittings, where electric light, power, Class 1, or nonpower-limited fire alarm circuit conductors are
introduced solely to connect to the equipment connected to power-limited fire alarm circuits or to other
circuits controlled by the fire alarm system to which the other conductors in the enclosure are connected.
If the conductors must enter an enclosure that is provided with a single opening, they shall be permitted to
enter through a single fitting (such as a tee) provided the conductors are separated from the conductors of
the other circuits by a continuous and firmly fixed nonconductor, such as flexible tubing.
