Fire Alarm System Limitations
While a fire alarm system may lower insurance rates, it is not a substitute for fire insurance!
An automatic fire alarm system—typically made up of
smoke detectors, heat detectors, manual pull stations, audible
warning devices, and a fire alarm control panel with remote
notification capability—can provide early warning of a developing fire. Such a system, however, does not assure protection
against property damage or loss of life resulting from a fire.
The Manufacturer recommends that smoke and/or heat detectors be located throughout a protected premise following the
recommendations of the current edition of the National Fire
Protection Association Standard 72-1999 (NFPA 72-1999),
manufacturer's recommendations, State and local codes, and
the recommendations contained in the Guide for Proper Use of
System Smoke Detectors, which is made available at no
charge to all installing dealers. A study by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (an agency of the United States
government) indicated that smoke detectors may not go off in
as many as 35% of all fires. While fire alarm systems are
designed to provide early warning against fire, they do not
guarantee warning or protection against fire. A fire alarm system may not provide timely or adequate warning, or simply
may not function, for a variety of reasons:
Smoke detectors may not sense fire where smoke cannot
reach the detectors such as in chimneys, in or behind walls, on
roofs, or on the other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors
also may not sense a fire on another level or floor of a building.
A second-floor detector, for example, may not sense a firstfloor or basement fire.
Particles of combustion or “smoke” from a developing fire
may not reach the sensing chambers of smoke detectors
because:
•
Barriers such as closed or partially closed doors, walls, or
chimneys may inhibit particle or smoke flow.
•
Smoke particles may become “cold,” stratify, and not reach
the ceiling or upper walls where detectors are located.
•
Smoke particles may be blown away from detectors by air
outlets.
•
Smoke particles may be drawn into air returns before
reaching the detector.
The amount of “smoke” present may be insufficient to alarm
smoke detectors. Smoke detectors are designed to alarm at
various levels of smoke density. If such density levels are not
created by a developing fire at the location of detectors, the
detectors will not go into alarm.
Smoke detectors, even when working properly, have sensing
limitations. Detectors that have photoelectronic sensing
chambers tend to detect smoldering fires better than flaming
fires, which have little visible smoke. Detectors that have ionizing-type sensing chambers tend to detect fast-flaming fires
better than smoldering fires. Because fires develop in different
ways and are often unpredictable in their growth, neither type
of detector is necessarily best and a given type of detector
may not provide adequate warning of a fire.
Smoke detectors cannot be expected to provide adequate
warning of fires caused by arson, children playing with
matches (especially in bedrooms), smoking in bed, and violent
explosions (caused by escaping gas, improper storage of
flammable materials, etc.).
2
Heat detectors do not sense particles of combustion and
alarm only when heat on their sensors increases at a predetermined rate or reaches a predetermined level. Rate-of-rise
heat detectors may be subject to reduced sensitivity over time.
For this reason, the rate-of-rise feature of each detector
should be tested at least once per year by a qualified fire protection specialist. Heat detectors are designed to protect
property, not life.
IMPORTANT! Smoke detectors must be installed in the
same room as the control panel and in rooms used by the system for the connection of alarm transmission wiring, communications, signaling, and/or power. If detectors are not so
located, a developing fire may damage the alarm system, crippling its ability to report a fire.
Audible warning devices such as bells may not alert people
if these devices are located on the other side of closed or
partly open doors or are located on another floor of a building.
Any warning device may fail to alert people with a disability or
those who have recently consumed drugs, alcohol or medication. Please note that:
•
Strobes can, under certain circumstances, cause seizures
in people with conditions such as epilepsy.
•
Studies have shown that certain people, even when they
hear a fire alarm signal, do not respond or comprehend the
meaning of the signal. It is the property owner's responsibility to conduct fire drills and other training exercise to
make people aware of fire alarm signals and instruct them
on the proper reaction to alarm signals.
•
In rare instances, the sounding of a warning device can
cause temporary or permanent hearing loss.
A fire alarm system will not operate without any electrical
power. If AC power fails, the system will operate from standby
batteries only for a specified time and only if the batteries have
been properly maintained and replaced regularly.
Equipment used in the system may not be technically compatible with the control panel. It is essential to use only equipment listed for service with your control panel.
Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a
premise to a central monitoring station may be out of service
or temporarily disabled. For added protection against telephone line failure, backup radio transmission systems are recommended.
The most common cause of fire alarm malfunction is inadequate maintenance. To keep the entire fire alarm system in
excellent working order, ongoing maintenance is required per
the manufacturer's recommendations, and UL and NFPA standards. At a minimum, the requirements of Chapter 7 of NFPA
72-1999 shall be followed. Environments with large amounts
of dust, dirt or high air velocity require more frequent maintenance. A maintenance agreement should be arranged
through the local manufacturer's representative. Maintenance
should be scheduled monthly or as required by National and/
or local fire codes and should be performed by authorized professional fire alarm installers only. Adequate written records of
all inspections should be kept.

Installation Precautions
Adherence to the following will aid in problem-free installation with long-term reliability:
WARNING - Several different sources of power can be
connected to the fire alarm control panel. Disconnect all
sources of power before servicing. The control unit and associated equipment may be damaged by removing and/or inserting cards, modules, or interconnecting cables while the unit is
energized. Do not attempt to install, service, or operate this
unit until this manual is read and understood.
CAUTION - System Reacceptance Test after Software
Changes. To ensure proper system operation, this product
must be tested in accordance with NFPA 72-1999 Chapter 7
after any programming operation or change in site-specific
software. Reacceptance testing is required after any change,
addition or deletion of system components, or after any modification, repair or adjustment to system hardware or wiring.
All components, circuits, system operations, or software functions known to be affected by a change must be 100% tested.
In addition, to ensure that other operations are not inadvertently affected, at least 10% of initiating devices that are not
directly affected by the change, up to a maximum of 50
devices, must also be tested and proper system operation verified.
This system meets NFPA requirements for operation at 0°C
to 49°C (32°F to 120°F) and at a relative humidity (noncondensing) of 85% at 30°C (86°F) per NFPA, and 93% ± 2% at
32°C ± 2°C (89.6°F ± 1.1°F) per ULC. However, the useful life
of the system's standby batteries and the electronic components may be adversely affected by extreme temperature
ranges and humidity. Therefore, it is recommended that this
system and all peripherals be installed in an environment with
a nominal room temperature of 15-27° C/60-80° F.
Verify that wire sizes are adequate for all initiating and indicating device loops. Most devices cannot tolerate more than a
10% I.R. drop from the specified device voltage.
Like all solid state electronic devices, this system may
operate erratically or can be damaged when subjected to lightning-induced transients. Although no system is completely
immune from lightning transients and interferences, proper
grounding will reduce susceptibility. Overhead or outside
aerial wiring is not recommended, due to an increased susceptibility to nearby lightning strikes. Consult with the Technical Services Department if any problems are anticipated or
encountered.
Disconnect AC power and batteries prior to removing or
inserting circuit boards. Failure to do so can damage circuits.
Remove all electronic assemblies prior to any drilling, filing,
reaming, or punching of the enclosure. When possible, make
all cable entries from the sides or rear. Before making modifications, verify that they will not interfere with battery, transformer, and printed circuit board location.
Do not tighten screw terminals more than 9 in-lbs.
Over-tightening may damage threads, resulting in reduced terminal contact pressure and difficulty with screw terminal
removal.
Though designed to last many years, system components
can fail at any time. This system contains static-sensitive
components. Always ground yourself with a proper wrist strap
before handling any circuits so that static charges are removed
from the body. Use static-suppressive packaging to protect
electronic assemblies removed from the unit.
Follow the instructions in the installation, operating, and programming manuals. These instructions must be followed to
avoid damage to the control panel and associated equipment.
FACP operation and reliability depend upon proper installation
by authorized personnel.

Applications
The system is designed to be used in today’s large multizone buildings to provide a reliable and costeffective life safety system. It provides automatic evacuation messages, or local fire fighter control of
paging and 2-way communications in an emergency situation. A paging microphone and a master
telephone handset and control unit are coupled with a fully electronic emergency message recorder and
easy to use operator controls to provide the FACP with a state-of-the-art emergency communications
subsystem.
Operation
The system functions as an integral part of a FACP system. Manual or automatic alarm signals
generated by the control panel are used to initiate audio evacuation signals or messages, which are
distributed throughout the building’s speaker circuits. All field circuits (either speaker circuits or
telephone circuits) are fully supervised and power-limited by the main control panel. The Command
Center is fully field-programmable, and does not require the use of any special tools or equipment.

Optional Equipment for Amplification Circuits
ACT1.cdr
Audio Coupling Transformer - ACT-1 Couples low-level audio
for up to eight audio amplifiers or other audio inputs, such as the
AMG-1 Audio Message Generator. Up to 7 ACT-1s can be used on a
low-level audio circuit. The transformer provides ground fault circuit
isolation as well as Common Mode Noise Rejection (CMNR), greatly
reducing crosstalk from the SLCs. Refer to Section 8 “ACT-1 Audio
Coupling Transformer” for more information and installation
instructions.
Audio Coupling Transformer - ACT-2 The ACT-2 unit provides
a means to drive up to 40 amplifiers for large audio system
applications. To do so, the ACT-2 must be used in conjunction with a
dedicated AA-30 amplifier which is used to create a 25 Vrms audio
riser. Each ACT-2 accepts the 25 Vrms signal and reduces it to the
level appropriate for input to up to 40 AA series amplifiers. Hundreds
of ACT-2s can be connected to a single 25Vrms riser. In this
configuration the ACT-2 also provides electrical isolation between the
audio riser and supported amplifiers, preventing Ground Fault sensing conflicts through the audio
riser. See the Audio Coupling Transformer Technical Bulletin for further details and installation
instructions.

Section 2 Design Considerations
A brief overview of the role that each voice alarm component plays in audio evacuation applications.
2.1 Activating Audio Functions with an AMG-1
Through an EIA-485 communication loop, the control panel can automatically activate programmed
tones or messages on the AMG-1.
• If the AMG-1 is connected to a single-address mode control panel such as the IFC-640: The
AMG-1 must be set to Address 01 (see Appendix A “IFC-640: Configuring Voice Systems” and
the control panel manual).
• If the AMG-1 is connected to a multi-address mode panel such as the IFC-3030 or an intelligent
annunciator such as the JNCA: An ACM-24AT or ACM-16AT is required to be addressed and
programmed (see Appendix B “IFC-3030 and JNCA: Configuring Voice Systems” and the
manual for your FACP or intelligent annunciator).
In applications with more than 4 AMG-1s, an AEM-24AT or AEM-16AT may also be required.

2.2 Amplifying the Audio Signal
The AMG-1 produces a low-level audio signal (unamplified tones or messages), therefore the audio
signal must be fed through an Audio Amplifier, such as an AA-30, AA-100 or AA-120. The output of
the amplifier is then fed to the control modules (such as VCM-4RK or M300CJ) that control the speaker
zones. In the samples below, VCM-4RK is used, but any listed transponder or control module can be
used with control-by-event.

2.3 Driving Speaker Circuits
The amplified signal from each Audio Amplifier must be connected to a control module that will switch
the signal to a speaker circuit. A VCM-4RK or DCM-4RK connects to panel circuit connections on the
fire alarm control panel by a ribbon cable connection; an XP or M300CJ control module connects to any
control panel with an SLC loop and gets its instructions via CBE programming.

Section 4 Audio Message Generator (AMG-1/AMG-E)
4.1 Overview
The Audio Message Generator (AMG-1) is the heart of the Voice Alarm System. This unit provides up
to four digitally recorded voice messages, each of which may be up to 24 seconds long. A built-in
microphone allows paging through speaker circuits. If employed with an optional Fire Fighters
Telephone (FFT-7), the AMG-1 provides system paging capability from telephones installed throughout
the installation. Additionally, the AMG-1 produces a variety of tones such as, slow whoop, yelp, wail,
hi/lo, Boston Code, and steady tone. (For a complete list, refer to this manual’s appendix for the FACP
or intelligent annunciator the AMG-1 is being connected to.)
Note: The AMG-E (expander) is an AMG-1 without a microphone.
You can use the AMG-1 to produce any one of its tones or messages selected via EIA-485 by the control
panel. There is one low-level audio output channel on each AMG-1; for dual-channel systems, an
additional AMG-1 or AMG-E must be installed.
4.2 Voice Messages
Various prerecorded voice messages are available from the factory. One or two factory-programmed
messages can be installed in the AMG-1. For a listing of the various factory messages, refer to the
VROM Series Voice Messages document.

4.7.2 Selecting Tones & Voice Messages
Tone selection programming is accomplished
by the DIP switch settings on the AMG-1/
AMG-E. However, the function of the DIP
switches is determined by the type of
equipment the AMG-1/AMG-E is connected
to. Multi-address mode controllers such as
the IFC-3030 and the JNCA control the
AMG-1/E by distinctly different method than
that used by single-address mode control
panels such as IFC-640. For specific settings
for the AMG-1/E when used with your FACP
or intelligent annunciator, refer to this
manual’s appendix and to your FACP manual.

• AA-30 - Up to 30 watts of power for driving 25 Vrms speaker circuits.
• AA-100 - Up to 100 watts of power for driving 70.7 Vrms speaker circuits.
• AA-120 - Up to 120 watts of power for driving 25 Vrms speaker circuits.
Note: Whenever AA-30, AA-100 or AA-120 are mentioned, it also refers to the AA-30E, AA-100E and
AA-120E (240 VAC version).
Audio amplifiers provide the following features:
• Built-in Supervision Each audio amplifier contains LEDs showing the type of trouble. Types of
trouble include: brownout, loss of low-level supervision tone at the input, battery failure, audio
output wiring failure (if set for four-wire output), and amplifier failure. During total loss of
primary AC power, all LEDs extinguish to conserve battery power.
• Backup You can set up an audio amplifier as a backup amplifier for multiple amplifiers. If an
amplifier fails, the signal automatically switches to the backup amplifier. When one backup
amplifier is serving multiple primary amplifiers, only one primary amplifier failure will be
supported.
• Speaker zone selection Set by Control-By-Event (CBE) or set manually using control switches
on the VCM-4RK, DCM-4RK, ACM-24AT, or ACM-16AT modules.
• Backup Tone The AA-100 and AA-120 will generate automatic backup tones if the low-level
input is lost.

6.2.2 AA-30 General Operation
During complete loss of primary (AC) power, the AA-30 operates on secondary (battery) power. To
conserve secondary power, no LEDs light on the AA-30 while operating on batteries.
The amplifier does not indicate a trouble condition until 40 seconds after a fault occur.
Calibrate an AA-30 audio amplifier by installing an R-470 resistor (470 ohms, 1/2 watt) at the end
of the low-level audio circuit. If the low-level audio circuit is configured as a four-wire circuit,
install the R-470 resistor at the point furthest from the AMG-1.

• Low-level audio input and high-level audio output “P” connectors are primarily for incabinet applications where the wiring to or from the amplifier remains in the cabinet. For
multiple-cabinet applications hard-wire the system using terminal blocks P3 & P8. When
more than one cabinet is required, cabinets must be mounted adjacent to each other and all
interconnecting wiring must be installed in conduit.
• To enable four-wire supervision, cut resistor R100 as shown in Figure 6.8.
Note: In the AA-120, this option is only required when output wiring leaves the cabinet.
• If the amplifier is being used in stand-alone mode (no connection to AMG-1/-E) where the
backup high/low or slow whoop tone generator is being used, resistor R107 (see Figure 6.8)

2.
Set SW1 to Hi/Lo or Slow Whoop as the default backup tone as shown below.
Hi/Lo
Slow Whoop
Figure 6.9 SW1 Backup Tone Switch
6.4 Adjusting the Audio Gain Level
An audio amplifier contains a multi-position rotary switch that lets you adjust the gain of the audio
output signal. This adjustment compensates for audio line losses. After correct adjustment, an audio
amplifier can produce its maximum rated output power of 25 Vrms (AA-30, AA-120) or 70.7 Vrms
(AA-100).
When finished installing all amplifiers and associated circuitry, adjust the audio gain as follows:
1.
50
Install a resistor assembly R-470 (470 ohm, 1/2 watt) on P3 terminals 4 and 5 of the last
directly connected device on the low-level audio riser.
Note: 70.7 Vrms speakers require the 2 watt, 4.7K end-of-line resistors (P⁄ N 90224) supplied
with the AA-100 Audio Amplifier in place of the resistors supplied with the VCM-4RK Voice
Control Module, the VCE-4 Voice Control Expander, and the DCM-4RK Dual Channel
Module. Systems configured for 70.7 Vrms operation must be wired as Style Y (Class B).

120 Watt - Four and Eight Speaker Circuits
Wiring Notes for Figure 7.14 and Figure 7.15. When wiring four- and eight-speaker circuits
using 120 watts of power, note the following:
1.
The AA-120 draws audio power from plug P6, or terminals 5 and 6 of terminal block P8. This
audio power run is not supervised. If using the optional supervised return, a loss of audio
power (due to a break in the wiring) generates a trouble signal at the AA-120.
2.
If using an optional supervised four-wire return, cut resistor R100 on the AA-120. For location
of resistor see Figure 6.8.
3.
Each speaker circuit can handle a maximum of 30 watts.
These four circuits share
120 watts with a maximum
of 30 watts per circuit.

Section 8 ACT-1 Audio Coupling Transformer
8.1 Overview
The ACT-1 Audio Coupling Transformer couples low-level audio to audio amplifiers or other audio
inputs, such as AMG-1. The unit can be used to couple a low-level audio signal to up to eight devices.
Multiple ACT-1s are required for amplifiers on multiple channels. It provides electrical isolation for
equipment powered by separate power supplies with ground fault detection enabled. In addition, the
ACT-1 provides common mode noise rejection (CMNR), greatly reducing crosstalk from SLCs.
8.2 Applications
You can install the transformer in any application that uses AA-30, AA-100, or AA-120 audio
amplifiers, subject to the following restrictions:
• The amplifiers must mount remotely from the source of low-level audio devices, such as an
AMG-1 or RM-1.
• The power supplies in the main control panel cabinet and the remote cabinets do not share the
same common.
• Ground fault is enabled on each power supply.
In larger systems, capacitance becomes a critical factor in creating sporadic and difficult-to-find ground
faults along a single common connection. In these systems—as in systems that expand—use an ACT-1
if possible.
8.3 Isolating Power Supplies
Isolated power supplies, each with respective ground fault detection circuits enabled, are often used to
aid the quick location of ground faults in large systems. This task is more difficult if the entire system
(main and all remote devices) share the same common and the power supply in the main control panel
cabinet provides ground fault detection.
For example, take a system consisting of a remote annunciator powered from a local supply within the
same cabinet—but connected through an EIA-485 circuit—to the main control panel (Figure 8.1). A
common connection occurs (although a poor one) along the EIA-485 interface. Therefore, the power
supplies in this system are not adequately isolated and problems will occur (such as intermittent reports
of a ground fault when each power supply’s ground fault detection signal interacts with the signal from
the other power supply). In this case, the earth fault detection of the remote power supply must be
disabled and a good common connection must be made between the two systems. An ACT-1 is not
required for amplifiers mounted in this remote cabinet but installation of an ACT-1 can reduce CMN
from the SLC. Shown below is a block diagram of a remote annunciator powered from a local power
supply:

rocker down in the ON position. When only one AMG-1 is present, use address 32; each additional
AMG-1/E should be given the next-highest address available.

B.2 Selecting AMG-1/E Group Functions
Operation of the various tones and messages available in a voice alarm application is dependent
upon the type and number of ROM chips installed and the functional groups selected by DIP switch

settings on the AMG-1. Group selection is accomplished by setting DIP switch positions 6, 7 and 8
on the AMG-1. See the AMG-1 Group Function Tables (Table B.1 and Table B.2).
B.3 AMG-1/E Programming Notes
During programming of the control panel (and after the installation of any AMG-1s), each AMG-1
must be programmed as if they were annunciators. The address is set on the AMG-1 (25-32) and
must correspond to the programmed annunciator address.
Set the address of the AMG-1 Audio Message Generator via DIP switches 2 and 3. This address
can only be set for 29-32 for a standard AMG-1 or 25-28 for an AMG-1 with an AMG-X4 EPROM
installed.
The first AMG-1 should be set to address 32, the second to address 31, and so on. The AMG-1 at
address 32 follows the first four points on the ACM programmed at address 1. The AMG-1 at
address 31 follows the next four points. Up to eight AMG-1s may be installed in a JNCA system.
Note: All speaker circuits must be programmed with software type “SPKR.” When an FFT-7 is
used, it must be attached to an AMG-1 at Address 32.

NFPA Code (3s Temporal)
All the above tone/messages sequences will repeat until they have been deselected through the annunciator control point. Priority within each group of
four is from top (highest priority) to bottom (lowest priority).
If a digitally-stored voice message fails, the AMG-1 will automatically switch to the primary evacuation tone and will generate a trouble condition.
All pauses are 5 seconds long unless otherwise noted.
Boston Code (order VROM 109, which must be installed in VROM-B position): All Call initiated. A 900 Hz alert tone pulsed to produce one round of code
4, followed by female voice message: “Attention please. The signal tone you have just heard indicates a report of an emergency in this building. If your
floor evacuation signal sounds after this message, walk to the nearest stairway and leave the floor. While the report is being verified, occupants on other
floors should await further instructions.” This message is played 3 times, after which All Call is deactivated. This is followed by a 15-second pause and
then continuous temporal code.

If a digitally-stored voice message fails, the AMG-1 will automatically switch to the primary evacuation tone and will generate a trouble condition.
All pauses are 5 seconds long unless otherwise noted.
