WARNING: Read this section completely before commencing installation.
1.1 INSTALLATION INFORMATION
THIS FIRE ALARM CONTROL PANEL IS CLASS1 EQUIPMENT AND MUST BE EARTHED.
This equipment must be installed and maintained by a qualified and technically experienced person.
This C.I.E. must be wired to a fused spur rated at 3A. It must NOT be connected via a removable plug, or be connected through an
RCD device.
It is designed for indoor use only.
Prior to commencing installation of the control panel, ensure that adequate precautions are taken to prevent damage to the
sensitive electronic components on the display board and the control board due to electrostatic discharge. You should discharge
any static electricity you may have accumulated by touching a convenient earthed object such as an unpainted copper radiator
pipe. You should repeat the process at regular intervals during the installation process, especially if you are required to walk over
carpets.
The panel must be located in a clean, dry position, which is not subject to excessive shock or vibration and at least 2 metres away
from pager systems or any other radio transmitting equipment. The operating temperature range is 0ºC to 40ºC; maximum
humidity is 95%.
HANDLING THE PCBS
If the PCBs are to be removed to ease fitting the enclosure and cables, care must be taken to avoid damage by static.
The best method is to wear an earth strap, but touching any earth point (e.g. building plumbing) will help to discharge any static.
Always handle PCBs by their sides and avoid touching the legs of any components. Keep the PCBs away from damp dirty areas, e.g.
in a small cardboard box.
1.2 SAFETY PRECAUTIONS DURING NORMAL OPERATION OF PANEL
NOTE: When the Smart Connect panel is operating normally, i.e. not being tended by service personnel, the panel enclosure must
be kept closed, secured by the supplied hex screws. The hex key to open the cover MUST be removed and ONLY held by the
responsible person and / or the service personnel. It must under NO CIRCUMSTANCES be held by the user.
1.3 BATTERY INFORMATION
This C.I.E. uses 2 x 12V Sealed Lead Acid (SLA) batteries with capacities between 3Ah and 7Ah.
CAUTION:
RISK OF EXPLOSION IF BATTERY IS REPLACED BY AN INCORRECT TYPE. DISPOSE OF USED BATTERIES ACCORDING TO BATTERY
MANUFACTURERS INSTRUCTIONS.
IMPORTANT NOTES ON BATTERIES:
DANGER: Batteries are electrically live at all times. NEVER short circuit the battery terminals.
WARNING: Batteries are often heavy. Each 17Ah battery weighs 6.1kg. Take great care when lifting and transporting batteries.
DANGER: Do NOT attempt to remove the battery lid or tamper with the internal workings of the battery. Electrolyte is a highly
corrosive substance, and presents significant danger to yourself and to anything else it touches. In case of accidental skin or eye
contact, flush the affected area with plenty of clean, fresh water and seek immediate medical attention. Valve Regulated Lead Acid
(VRLA) batteries are “low maintenance”, requiring no electrolyte top-up or measurement of specific gravity.
1.4 PRODUCT DISPOSAL AT THE END OF ITS WORKING LIFE
Like all electronic equipment, at the end of its working life this unit should not be disposed of in a refuse bin. It should be taken to a
local reprocessing site as per the guidelines of the WEEE directive, for correct disposal.

3.6 INDICATING DIFFERENT PANEL STATES
During Normal operation the panel will be in one of the following states depending on the status of the devices connected to the
panel, and user intervention. Below is a summary of the different conditions
3.6.1 The Quiescent Condition
This is the panel’s normal state. There are no faults or alarms,
and the panel is running normally. This is indicated by The LCD
showing System Normal, and All LEDS being off, apart from
Power, and perhaps Controls Active (depending on the last user
action).
In the quiescent condition, the panel displays:System Healthy.

Number of devices in alarm
First & last zones in alarm
Details of alarms in chronological order (showing device type,
Zone number & label, Device address & label)
Scroll arrows for displaying further events
3.6.3 The Fault Condition
All faults are indicated by a flashing yellow common fault LED,
and either an additional fault LED, or an LCD message.
Faults can be divided into 2 types, “Device Faults” and “General
Faults”. Device Faults are any fault associated with a particular
device address on the loop. They usually report Address & zone
information as well as a description of the fault.
General Faults are everything else, e.g. sounder circuits, power
supply, earth faults etc. Any fault on the panel will flash the
common fault LED in addition to displaying details of the fault.

In this example, one Zone 2 is in test mode. A number of zones
can be put into test at the same time if required. The test can
be silent, or with sounders. If the sounder option is chosen, only
sounders within the same zone as the test device are operated.
As devices are tested, the screen changes to show the recent
tests. Use the arrow to scroll to view older tests if required.
3.6.6 Multiple Conditions
In the event of multiple conditions, the panel will display the
highest priority event. It will display the presence of suppressed
events as icons on the top right of the screen. The number of
events for each category is shown on the icon. To display any of
the supressed events, press the icon of that event.

Smart Connect
Loop Touch Screen Panel
4.1 DESIGNING THE SYSTEM
The first consideration when designing the fire alarm system is the type or category of fire protection that is required for the
building. In the UK this is fully explained in the British Standard BS 5839-1. This contains guidance on how many smoke detectors,
heat detectors, call points, sounders etc. should be fitted for the type of coverage that is required.
Next decide on the number of loops of addressable devices that need to be installed. Smart Connect is a single loop panel. The
maximum loop capacity is 254 devices (also called points or addresses).
If the building requires more than 254 devices, then several control panels can be networked. The network capacity is 16 panels.
All fire alarm systems must be subdivided into zones, which represent the geographical areas of the building. Smart Connect allows
any number of devices to be allocated to a zone. However, it is assumed that a zone will not contain more than 32 fire detectors
and/or manual call points, since this would correspond to an unacceptably large search area.
Each panel may be configured to have between 1 and 254 zones.
Although a fire alarm system has to be subdivided into zones, the cause and effect actions applicable to Smart Connect can be
based on other groupings as well as zones. The other groupings are panels, Local I/O and points. Cause and effect is described later
in this manual.
Whenever possible, give each device as descriptive a label as possible. The better the description, the easier it is to locate in the
event of an alarm. The panel allows 47 characters. It may be necessary to use abbreviations to achieve the required label.
Keep the design of the system, and any changes to it well documented. This makes it easier to trace any configuration errors during
installation & commissioning.
4.2 RECOMMENDED CABLE TYPES AND THEIR LIMITATIONS
All wiring must be installed to meet the current versions of BS5839: Pt1 and BS 7671 (IEE Wiring Regulations) standards. Other
National standards of fire alarm system installation should be adhered to where applicable.
Screened cables should be used throughout the installation to help shield the Panel from outside interference and ensure EMC
compatibility.
The two categories of cable according to BS5839: Pt1 “Fire Detection and Alarm Systems for Buildings (Code of Practice for System
Design, Installation and Servicing)” are:
Standard fire resisting cable – to PH30 classification of EN 50200 (including the 30 minute survival time of Annex E)
Enhanced fire resisting cable – to PH120 classification of EN 50200 (including the 120 minute survival time of BS 8434-2)
2
(Note that all cables should be at least 1mm cross section)
On the Smart Connect Panel the general recommendation would be to use standard fire resistant cable, such as Firetuff™ , FP200
or an equivalent. These cables are screened, and will provide good EMC shielding when properly grounded at the panel. Certain
system specifications may demand the use of a particular type of cable and due regard should be paid to this fact. For non-BS5839
installations, other cable types may be suitable.
Depending on the environment, the cables may need mechanical protection (such as a conduit).
4.3 LOOP CALCULATIONS
Like most addressable systems, it is important that a system is designed within the panel’s limits. The following Limits should not be
exceeded:Characteristic
Limit
Maximum loop load
500mA
Maximum Quiescent loop load
400mA
Maximum cable resistence
22 ohms per core (36 Ohms from presentation)
Maxinum cable capacitance
400nF core to screen
200nF core to core
Minimum loop voltage
24V DC

4.4 MAXIMUM LOOP CABLE LENGTH RECOMMENDATIONS
With an addressable system, some care must be taken when calculating the appropriate cable gauge for the system. The main
limitation is that during an alarm condition (maximum current draw), the voltage at all devices must be at least 24 Volts with at
least 2.5V of superimposed data signal.
The exact calculation equations are beyond the scope of this manual, because of the distributed load of the sounders on the loop,
but the following table gives a rough guide for maximum cable lengths at various current loads for 3 different cable gauges.

4.5 BATTERY CALCULATIONS
All systems will have a required stand by time and alarm time. The usual Standby times are 24 hours, 48 hours, or 72 hours,
depending on the type of system. Generally 30 minutes of alarm time is considered sufficient.
Information on calculating the required battery size can be found later in this manual. Alternatively, a battery calculation
spreadsheet is available. Please contact your distributor for details.
4.6 CHOOSING AUDIBLE & VISIBLE WARNING DEVICES
There are a number of options for Audible & visual Devices that can be directly or indirectly connected to the loop of a Smart
Connect panel:
 A maximum of 64 loop powered sounders are permitted on each loop (which can be either stand-alone sounders or
sounder bases.
 A maximum of 254 devices can be connected to the loop, with addresses 1 to 254 which can occur in any order.
 Short circuit isolators should be used to prevent losing the whole loop in the event of a single short circuit fault. They
should be fitted to each zone boundary, such that any short circuit will only affect the devices in 1 zone.
4.6.1 ADDRESSABLE SOUNDER
This type of sounder takes one of the 254 addresses available on each loop. The address is set with the programming tool. It can be
activated individually, or in groups related to its zone number, as determined by the cause and effect programmed.
4.6.2 ADDRESSABLE SOUNDER BASE
This consists of an addressable sounder in the base of an addressable detector. The sounder and detector are set to different
addresses, i.e. two devices are located at the same position on a loop but occupy two addresses. The address is set with the
programming tool, or with dip switches, depending on the model used. It can be activated individually, or in groups related to its
zone number, as determined by the cause and effect programmed.

4.7 System Spare Capacity
The UK Fire alarm system code of Practice for Designing, Installing, Commissioning & maintaining fire alarm systems,
BS5839 recommends allowing at least 25% free capacity when designing a fire system.
This is a good precaution as it allows for:
Changes to the system requirements before the site is finished

Additional devices identified as part of the commissioning process

Future Changes to the building layout (eg partitioning an open plan area)
If a system is designed to full capacity, any small additions might mean substantial changes (network an extra panel, or
change panel to an alternative model)

Loop Touch Screen Panel
5.1 MOUNTING THE FIRE ALARM CONTROL PANEL
The Smart Connect comes with many cable entry holes. If another entry hole is required, it is strongly recommended that the panel
door is removed to avoid accidental damage. Also, the back plate which holds the loop cards and power supply should be removed
and stored in a safe place. This would also help while fixing the back box to the wall.
5.2 LOCATING THE FIRE ALARM CONTROL PANEL
The control panel should be installed in accordance with the following recommendations:The panel should be close to the main entrance of the building, so that it can be viewed by any fire-fighting personnel entering the
building.

It should be fitted to a sturdy wall that will not flex unnecessarily.

It should ideally be mounted at eye level, in order for it to be viewed without need of a ladder.

It should be installed in a dry, weatherproof place, preferably NOT in direct sunlight.

It should be easily accessible, so that the responsible person can perform their regular fire alarm checks.
5.3 FIXING THE BACK BOX TO THE WALL
Figure 1
Figure 1: Plan view inside the enclosure without PCBs. Side view for surface installation. (Dimensions: mm)
Fix the enclosure to the wall using the three mounting holes provided (2 circular holes near the bottom of the rear face and one
'keyhole' near the top of the rear face).
Check the build and condition of the wall to decide a suitable screw fixing. The mounting holes are designed for No 8 roundhead or
countersunk woodscrews (or similar). Remove any debris from the enclosure. Take care not to damage the FACP during installation.

5.4 MAINS WIRING RECOMMENDATIONS
The Mains supply to the FACP is fixed wiring, using Fire resisting 3-core cable (Between 1 mm² and 2.5mm²), fed from an isolating
double pole switch fused spur, fused at 3A. IT SHOULD NOT BE CONNECTED THROUGH AN RCD. This should be secure from
unauthorised operation and be marked ‘FIRE ALARM: DO NOT SWITCH OFF’. The supply must be exclusive to the Fire Panel. MAKE
SURE ANY SPARE ENTRY HOLES ARE COVERED WITH THE GROMMETS PROVIDED.
For information on how to connect Mains to the Panel’s Power Supply PCB, see Section 6.
Also refer to rating information on the mains cover inside the FACP.
5.5 PLANNING CABLE ENTRY
Fig.2 below shows the location of the cable entries to facilitate planning of wiring to be brought to the panel.
The Knock-out cable entries can be easily removed by Tapping with a suitable screwdriver or chisel from outside the control panel
box. Alternatively, the entry can be drilled out, using a 19mm hole cutter. Care should be taken if using a drill. Consider removing
the main PCB to prevent damaging it.
5.6 CONNECTING THE MAINS POWER
Figure 2: Wiring the mains connection
The panel should be connected to a mains supply by a 3A rated spur to the fuse box with 1mm2 to 2.5mm2 3-core cables. Nothing
else should be connected to this supply. The cable should be fire resistant. NB It is recommended that the mains cable should pass
twice through the ferrite supplied with the panel, to improve the panel’s immunity to electromagnetic interference. The ferrite
should be positioned between the mains entry port and the power supply cage.

Smart Connect
Loop Touch Screen Panel
The AC Live (L), Earth (E) and Neutral (N) connections are marked on the power supply cage. It is essential that the mains Earth
cable is connected to the PSU’s Earth terminal. The incoming mains cable should be kept separate from the loop cables to help
minimise mains interference.
MAKE SURE ANY SPARE ENTRY HOLES THAT HAVE BEEN OPENED, BUT NOT USED ARE COVERED WITH SUITABLE GROMMETS OR
BLANKING SCREWS
It is advisable to apply power to the panel before connecting any devices, to check for correct operation, and to familiarise yourself
with the fire alarm panels controls.
If a knockout is removed, fill the hole with a suitable cable gland. If any knockout is removed, but subsequently not used, it should
be covered up.
The 230V AC Mains cable must be fed into the enclosure via one of the cable entries at the top right corner of the back box. (Refer
to “Connecting the Mains Power” in Section 6.1).
5.7 CONNECTING THE BATTERIES
Figure 3: Battery location and connection details.
To calculate the exact requirement, use the equation in the STANDBY BATTERY REQUIREMENTS section.
The two batteries are wired in series.
The +ve of one battery is connected to the red battery lead.
The –ve of the other battery is connected to the black battery lead.
The –ve of the first battery is connected to the +ve of the second battery using the link wire supplied.
Recommended Battery Types: Powersonic 12V, 7 Ah
Other makes and sizes of battery may be suitable. Calculate the standby requirements to determine the most suitable size of
battery

6.1 ADDRESSABLE LOOP WIRING
The Smart Connect has one addressable loop. Addressable detectors, addressable call points, addressable loop powered sounders
and several other interface units can be fitted to this loop. A MAXIMUM OF 254 ADDRESSES CAN BE CONNECTED TO the LOOP. We
recommend that the first and last devices on a loop have isolator bases fitted. Also the last device on each zone should have an
isolator fitted. This is to prevent a short circuit fault in one zone affecting another zone. The screen cable at each end of the loop
(not shown below) must be connected to the Panel`s earth bar.
Figure 5: Example of addressable loop wiring (top) & connections to loop cards (bottom)
6.2 ADDRESSABLE LOOPS (Pre commissioning check)
At this stage it is important to remember devices (e.g. detectors, call points, sounders etc.) should not be connected yet, if a high
voltage “Megger” type tester is to be used to check for continuity of the loop wiring.
Pre-Commissioning Cable Checks

+ve in to +ve out less than 22 ohms.

-ve in to -ve out less than 22 ohms (may need to temporarily disable isolators to measure).


6.3.8 Sandwich Sounder
The sandwich sounder has no wiring to connect as it just clips straight on to a standard base. It will run as a platform sounder using
no address, and is controlled by the detector fitted to it. It can also be given an address via the handheld programming tool making
it an addressable sounder. (Note: If the sandwich sounder has NO ADDRESS it will ONLY function with an addressed detector fitted
on top of it.)

6.3.9 Remote LED Indicator
Ceiling Mount (MKII-ARL/C)
Wall Mount (MKII-ARL/W)
There are two versions of the remote LED, Wall mounted and Ceiling mounted. The ceiling mounted version requires a standard
detector base.
Each version of the remote LED can monitor 1 or up to 12 devices. The way in which the LED is programmed is either via the D.I.L
switches on the device or soft addressing via the handheld programmer.

6.4 SETTING THE DEVICE ADDRESS (DETECTORS, CALL POINTS, SOUNDERS
& INTERFACE UNITS)
Note that the devices do not need to be addressed sequentially along the loop. Technically they can be addressed in
any sequence. But addressing them sequentially will help in fault finding, should there be a problem with the loop
wiring.
6.4.1 SOFT and HARD PROGRAMMING/ADDRESSING
The MKII Handheld Programmer is designed to complement all MKII devices and to assist the commissioning engineer on site. The
unit will softly address all devices without using the incorporated dip-switch on the field devices.
Smoke and heat detectors can be tested when plugged on the programmer and alarm LED’s can be verified prior to installation.
The MKII Programmer can also re-program the OPT-HEAT detectors to either heat or smoke detector.
6.4.2 DIP SWITCH ADDRESSING
Some Devices are addressed with a dip switch
If you are not familiar with binary, check the table on the
following page, or use the following rule:
Switch 8 ON = Add 128
Switch 7 ON = Add 64
Switch 6 ON = Add 32
Switch 5 ON = Add 16
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
Switch 4 ON = Add 8
Switch 3 ON = Add 4
The Address setting is binary, with the ON position being binary Switch 2 ON = Add 2
0, and the OFF position being binary 1
Switch 1 ON = Add 1
ON
The example shown would be:
switches 6, 4 & 1 = 32 + 8 + 1 = Address 41

6.5 FIRE RELAY (VOLTAGE FREE CHANGEOVER CONTACTS)
Figure 3: Connections for fire relay, fault relay, conventional sounders and auxiliary DC outputs.
The fire relay changes over in any fire condition, and can be used for driving local fire fighting equipment such as sprinkler systems,
magnetic door holders, air conditioning shut off, auto diallers etc.
NB In the quiescent condition, there is electrical continuity between C and NC. In the fire condition, there is continuity between C
and NO.
6.6 FAULT RELAY (VOLTAGE FREE CHANGEOVER CONTACTS)
The fault relay is energised in the quiescent condition. This allows the relay to indicate any fault with a change of state, even in the
event of total power loss. The terminals are marked for the quiescent running of the panel.
6.7 AUXILIARY DC OUTPUT
This 24V DC output is provided to support low power requirements (100mA max). A separate power supply will be required for
higher current applications.

7.6 ZONE LABELS
The reason for subdivision of a fire alarm system was explained earlier in the manual. The Smart Connect panel has 254 zones. The
first 16 zones also have LED indications. When a fire is reported, the zone number in which the fire is located is indicated on the
alphanumeric display. In addition to its numerical description, a zone can be identified by a text label, e.g. 3rd floor west ext. If the
installer associates a text label with each zone of a fire alarm system, this will be displayed on the LCD when a fire is detected. The
maximum length of the zone text label is 46 characters.
Enter the engineer password and select the zone Icon
Press on the zone text field. The panel displays it`s keyboard.
Use <- and -> to place the cursor, and
to delete unwanted text.
Type the zone name, and press exit when done. Repeat for all
required zones.
The LCD also indicates the current mode of each zone – enabled, disabled or in test mode.
7.7 ADDRESS LABELS AND ZONING DEVICES
Smart Connect is an addressable panel, i.e. it will indicate the address or location of a fire that has been detected. The address
number of each point or device on the loop has already been set with the address programming tool. The installation engineer
must now assign a label or location for each device, e.g. ROOM 107. A maximum of 48 characters can be used for each label. At the
same time each point can be allocated to a zone.
From the ENGINEER MENU, press the Point Icon.
Press the text field of the device to be edited

8.1. CAUSE AND EFFECT
The Smart Connect system has very comprehensive, but simple to use Cause and Effect capabilities.
The Default factory configuration is that any alarm will activate all outputs on the panel.
Like most addressable systems, the panel allows comprehensive programming of the sounder outputs. It is the responsibility of the
commissioning engineer to verify that the programmed panel actions operate the sounders as required.
Any input (or cause) can generate any output (or effect). For example, if the input is a fire in zone 1 (e.g. an optical detector
triggered by smoke), the system can be programmed to generate output(s) (e.g. operate one or more sounders or relay outputs in
one or more zones).
The inputs and outputs can be selected from 4 categories – Point, Local I/O, Zone & Panel.
Example of Selecting a Cause & Effect (New Action)
Press Cause/ Effect icon.
The panel shows the default common alarm setting
If this is not required, tap the action so that it is highlighted
yellow, then press the trash Icon to delete
Press the add button to add an event
The panel displays the Select cause Screen, Choose the cause
type (Point, Local I/O, zone or Panel). Depending on the input
type chosen, the panel will display a list of sub options. For a
point alarm the options are:Point causes



Detector Alarm

MCP Alarm

Fault


8.2 OUTPUTS AND DELAYS
Following the indication of a fire, the panel will activate outputs (i.e. sounders and / or relays) according to the cause and effect
rules that have been programmed. In certain circumstances, the activation of outputs may be delayed whilst the fire is being
investigated.
8.2.1 Sounder Delays
If the operation of sounders has been delayed in one or more of the programmed ACTIONS, then this will be indicated by the
illumination of the DELAY ON LED (in the SOUNDER STATUS section of LEDs). When a fire has been indicated, the DELAY ON LED
remains lit until the longest sounder delay has expired.
During a fire alarm it is possible to override all the sounder delays (at any access level) by pressing the delay override icon
the bottom of the screen, as shown.
at
8.2.2 Relay Output Delays
Relay outputs can also be delayed via the cause and effect actions. In this case, no LED is lit to indicate a delay (since this type of
output is not mandatory).
8.2.3 Programming Delays
Delays to relays and/or sounders can be programmed as part of the cause and effect programming (See previous section). If the
delay will be permanently set, the delay should be entered into the NIGHT time delay field. If the delay is only to be set at certain
times of the day, the panel should be configured for day/night mode. See following section

8.3 DAY / NIGHT MODE
The Nittan Evolution 1 has a day night timer that allows certain system responses to be altered at certain times of the day. It allows
for different delays for the day and night times, and it also allows the sensitivity of certain detectors to be set differently for the day
and night.
The default state of the panel is with no day/night settings programmed. It will use the “night time” delays, and the night time
detector sensitivity settings.
8.3.1 Defining Day and Night times
To allow for maximum flexibility, the panel allows for more than one Day-time period each day. For example, if a site closes for a 2
hour break, the panel could be configured with 2 day-time periods eg 8:00 – 12:00 and 14:00 – 18:00.
Because of this, the panel refers to each setting as a day-time slice.
Enter the engineer menu
Select the Day/Night Menu
The panel shows that there are no daytime slices set.
Press the add icon
to add a slice.
Select the day of the week, the start of the day slice, the end of
the day slice and the operation mode:
Operation Mode:
MCP

to save the changes, or press
to discard.
8.3.2 Setting Day-time and Night-time delays
The day and night time delays are set through the cause and effect programming.
Enter the required cause (as described in section 8.1)
When the panel asks for the output effect, enter the day time
delay in the first delay field. The delay is entered in seconds.
The maximum delay is 600 seconds (10 minutes).
If no night time delay is needed, set the night time delay to Zero
in the second field.

9.1 DISABLEMENTS
To aid commissioning and assist routine maintenance checks, various functions of the Nittan Evolution fire alarm system can be
disabled. The Nittan Evolution 1 allows Disablement of Inputs in a zone, Outputs in a zone, a whole zone, or individual devices.
9.2 ZONE DISABLEMENT
When a zone is disabled, the panel will not respond to any fault or fire signals it receives from that zone.
This might be used if the system requires routine maintenance, and the user needs the rest of the system to continue running, but
doesn’t want spurious false alarms.
The panel will respond in the usual manner to any events in any non-disabled zones.
Any number of zones can be disabled, but it is good practice to only disable one zone at a time.
A zone can be disabled as follows:
Enter the Engineer or User Password, Press the menu access
icon
, and select the zone Icon
(The disabling function is available to engineer & users).
The panel shows the Zone menu
Select the Zone to Disable by pressing the “In” field. The status
changes from enabled to Input Disabled.
This would disable all detectors, manual call points, and Input
interfaces in that zone.
Select further zones in the same way, or Press exit to save.
For further options, press the “In” field again.
The status changes from Input Disabled to Output Disabled.
This would disable all Sounders and Output interfaces in that
zone.
For further options, press the “In” field again.
The status changes from Output Disabled to Disabled.
This would disable everything in that zone.

9.3 DEVICE DISABLEMENT
Rather than disable an entire zone, it is often useful to just disable one or more input devices or points (detector, call point, or
interface) within a zone, especially if they are malfunctioning and likely to cause a false alarm or repeatedly indicate a fault.
Enter the Engineer
or User Password
, Press the
menu access icon, and select the Point Icon
(The disabling function is available to engineer & users).
The panel shows the Point menu.
Press on the MODE field for the device to be disabled.
Select further devices to disable if necessary, then press Exit to
save.
When zones have been disabled, the LCD display changes from
SYSTEM NORMAL to Disablement/Test, as shown.
The screen shows the number of devices disabled.
The General Disablement LED will be lit, but the zonal
disablement LEDs will not light, unless all devices in that zone
have been disabled.
Details of the individual devices disabled can be viewed by
pressing the disabled loop devices icon
To re-enable a device, use the same procedure, pressing the
Mode field until it shows Enabled.
Once a device is disabled, the panel ignores any alarms or faults generated by the device. If all devices in a zone are disabled, the
panel will indicate a zone disablement. If subsequently one or more devices are re-enabled then the zone disablement indication
will be automatically cancelled.
To re-enable a disabled device, repeat the same procedure used for disabling the device, selecting Enable instead of Disable.

10.1 WHY USE TEST MODE
To aid commissioning and assist routine maintenance check, a non-latching ‘one man test’ facility is available. Test mode can be
used either with or without sounder operation, depending on the engineer’s requirements.
When a detector, manual call point or input unit is triggered on any zone in Test, the Alarm sounders operate for approximately 10
seconds on and then switch off (If selected). The triggered device is automatically reset. The panel will display the tested device on
a test alarm screen, with the event highlighted in blue. The device automatically resets from the fire condition, but the LCD
indication remains until the panel is manually reset.
If the device is still in the fire condition, e.g. MCP still activated or the analogue value of a detector still above the alarm threshold,
the device will be triggered again and the Alarm sounders will operate for a further 10 seconds.
Should an Alarm occur on a zone that is not programmed to test, the Fire Alarm Panel will operate as normal.
10.2 TO PROGRAMME ZONE INTO TEST MODE
Enter the Engineer
or User Password
menu access icon, and select the zone Icon
, Press the
.
(The disabling function is available to engineer & users).
The panel shows the Zone menu
Select the zone(s) to be tested by clicking on the In Field, until it
shows Test
This will give a silent test, with no sounders operating.
If the sounders are required to operate, press the In Field again.
It will show Test + Sound.
This will operate all the sounders in that zone for approximately
10 seconds, regardless of the cause and effect programming
When all required zones have been selected, press exit and
accept the change. The panel will return to the menu, showing
that there is a Disablement or test condition present

11.1 NETWORKING
The Smart Connect panel has built in network connections, so no additional hardware is needed to network panels together.
Up to 16 control panels (CIEs) can be connected together, i.e. networked. The maximum distance between nodes is 1 km using a
screened data cable, or 100m using a standard fireproof cable.
The network can be configured with a ring or bus topology.
11.2 RING NETWORK
In a ring network, each control panel is connected to 2 other control panels to form a ring. This has the same topology as the loops
of addressable devices connected to each CIE. This has the advantage that no panels are lost if there is a single break in the
network.
11.3 BUS NETWORK
This is similar to a ring network but wired panel to panel without a return connection from last panel to first panel. It could also be
referred to as a radial or spur network.
11.4 CONFIGURING THE NETWORK
Enter the engineer menu
Select the Network Menu
, and press the RS485 tab
The panel shows that the network connection is disabled (It`s
default state).
Change the mode to Enabled.
Set a node address. Note that each panel on the network must
have a separate address.

Loop Touch Screen Panel
Repeat the above step for all panels on the network, then press
the Add icon
to search and configure the network.
When the search is complete, the panel shows a list of network
node addresses seen, and whether the panel sees a connection
on Network port A (NET 1), and Network port B (NET 2).
If the panel sees a connection it reports the port as UP. If it does
not see a connection, it reports the port as down.
(In this example we have a single panel)
11.5 RUNNING THE NETWORK
On a Smart Connect panel, running in a network, all events are reported at all panels. All panels are able to silence & reset the
system, when a suitable access code has been entered.
Operation of outputs over the network is determined by the programmed cause & effect. Any input on the network can be
programmed to operate any output. The cause & effect is entered at the panel that has the INPUT CAUSE connected.
11.6 CONFIGURING TCP/IP CONNECTION
The Smart Connect panel has a TCP/IP connection that allows the panel to report events to a central server. To do this, First the
TCP/IP address must be set.
From the Network Menu
, press the TCP/IP tab.
The panel shows that the TCP/IP connection is disabled (It`s
default state).
Select DHCP for the LAN to assign the settings, or select manual
to enter the settings by hand.
If entering the settings by hand, just type the numbers. The
panel will automatically insert the dots.
rd
With only the TCP/IP configured, the panel will sit on a network, but would need 3 party software on a PC to do anything useful.
The cloud tab will need to be configured in order for the panel to link to the remote server.

11.7 CONFIGURING THE CLOUD SETTINGS
The Smart Connect panel has been designed to report events to a central server. This will allow authorised users to view the
current status of the panel. The settings are usually set at the factory, but can be configured by the installer if required.
From the Network Menu
, press the Cloud tab.
Enter Server and Port details as required. Make a note of the
MAC address, as this will be needed to register the panel at the
server.
The Mode setting determines whether remote access to the
panel is enabled or disabled.
To allow an engineer to interrogate the panel remotely, this

12.1 LOOP WIRING FAULT FINDING
The Smart Connect panel will monitor the addressable loop for open or short circuit faults. The panel`s Loop Isolator monitors for
both Open and short circuit faults, to the faults are reported as ISOLATOR FAULTS, with a Description. The faults reported are:To locate a cable break, re-run the loop search, and
check the detailed loop report after the search is
complete.
Break in –
ve wire
Break in
+ve wire
Use the same method to locate a break. In the
example above, the break is between address 150
(which is seen from side A only), and address 152
(which is seen from side B only)
(This applies if the loop is addressed sequentially)
Short circuit on
side A of the loop
If the panel reports a loop short side A ,
then there is a short circuit fault on the
loop, somewhere between the panel (side
A), and the first device with a short circuit
isolator on the loop.
Short circuit on
side B of the loop
If the panel reports a loop short side B ,
then there is a short circuit fault on the
loop, somewhere between the panel (side
B), and the last device with a short circuit
isolator on the loop.

A short circuit in
the middle of the
loop, will usually
cause two loop
short circuit
isolators to
activate, and will
cause the devices
between the
isolators to go
missing (as they are
no longer
powered).
The short circuit will be somewhere
between the 2 operated SC isolators. Check
which addresses are missing.
12.2 LOOP CONTENTS FAULT FINDING
If the loop contents are different to what was expected, then there two probable causes:
Two or more
devices may have
the same address
setting. This is
referred to as a
DOUBLE ADDRESS
FAULT. If this
occurs all devices
with the same
address will answer
at the same time.
The panel will not
be able to
understand the
answer it receives
Search the detailed loop report for double
addresses.
Look for missing addresses in the detailed
summary. Missing numbers are likely to be
the double addressed ones.
Try removing the known device & relearn
the loop. If just 2 devices were at that
address, the other device will now be seen,
and the panel will report it`s type, which
may help reduce the search
If a system is only wired as a loop, any
breaks will be reported, and can be located
as described in the previous section.
Cable break
Reverse Polarity
Devices
If a system uses spurs, a cable break in the
spur will not be seen. Look for missing
device addresses in the loop report.
Some devices are polarity sensitive, so will
not be seen if + & - connections are
reversed.
Look for missing devices in the loop report,
and check their
12.3 ZONE FAULTS

A device has been
removed from that
zone.

A device has been
changed for one of a
different type
There is a Double
Address in this zone
(see previous section)
A device in that zone
is communicating a
fault condition to the
panel.
The fault message indicates whether the
interface has detected an open or short
circuit fault on its field wiring, or if it has lost
it`s auxiliary power supply input
12.4 POWER SUPPLY FAULTS
Check If Mains Power is present
Mains Supply Fault
Check if there is voltage out of the PSU cage
(29.5V DC)
Check battery fuse.
Check that battery connections are secure.
Check battery voltage (should be around 2627V for well charged batteries).
Battery Removed
Check that the two batteries are connected
in SERIES (to give double the voltage of 1
battery on its own).
Check the charger fuse.

The panel has determined that the power
supply is not charging the batteries.
Charger Fault
Battery high
impedance fault
This is likely to be a problem with the
Charger PCB. Contact your supplier to
arrange a replacement charger PCB
The panel has measured the battery internal
resistance and has determined it is too high.
The batteries will need to be replaced.
12.5 EARTH FAULTS
An EARTH fault indicates that something is shorting to earth (usually through the cable screen). Disconnect the earth screens one at
a time to determine the problem line. (Note: connecting other equipment, e.g. a mains powered laptop, to the panel can give an
earth fault)
The earth fault message will indicate if it is a Positive or Negative voltage shorting to earth.
Earth Positive Fault
Most Earth faults occur on the Addressable
loop. As a first check disconnect all the loop
connections, and reset the panel. If no earth
fault is reported the fault is on the loop.
Locate the fault by splitting the loop in half,
connecting one side of the loop at a time,
then sub dividing the “bad section”. Look
for the cable screen shorting to loop +
If the fault is not on the loop, use a similar
method to investigate all other circuits.
Earth Negative
Fault
Use the same method , but look for shorts
to loop -ve
Note that for the on board conventional sounder circuits, in the off condition, both sounder + and sounder – terminals are POSITIVE
with respect to earth, so a short circuit to either would give a positive earth fault.
***DO NOT DISCONNECT THE MAINS EARTH CONNECTION. THIS WILL CAUSE A PROBLEM WITH THE PANELS OPERATION***

12.6 SYSTEM FAULT
A system fault is an abnormal microprocessor running condition due to various unexpected phenomena.
This will result in the panel attempting to correct itself. Should this fault occur, the System Fault LED, General Fault LED, General
Fault relay and internal fault buzzer will be constantly active. A system fault indication can be cleared by pressing the system fault
reset button located underneath the PCB. If the fault does not clear please consult your distributor.

13.3 STANDBY BATTERY CALCULATION
In order to calculate the standby battery size required, the following formula can be used:Battery Size (Standby time in Amp Hours) = 1.25 x [(TALM x IALM) + (TSBY x (IQP + IQZ))]
Where:
TALM
= Maximum time in hours required for the alarm [½ hour is most common time]
IALM
= Total Alarm Current in amps
IALM-SND = Alarm Current of Sounders in amps
TSBY
= Standby time in hours for the system after mains failure [normally 24, 48 or 72 hr]
IQP
= Quiescent current in amps of control panel in fault condition [because of mains failure]
IAP
= Alarm current in amps of control panel
IQL
= Quiescent current in amps of all loop devices.
Typical Example:
A system comprises of a 1 Loop Nittan Evolution panel, with 80 Evolution Addressable Optical Smoke Detectors, 15 Nittan
Addressable Manual Call Points, 20 Nittan Addressable HI-OP Sounders and the required standby is 24 hours. It will need to operate
in alarm for ½ hour.
Calculate the battery size required.
TALM = 0.5 Hr
IALM-SND = 20 x 0.004 =0.08A
TSBY= 24 Hr
IQP = 0.20A
IAP = 0.19A
IQL = 80 x 0.00044 + 15 x 0.001 + 20 x 0.0005 = 0.0602A
IALM = IALM-SND + IAP + IQL = 0.08 + 0.19 + 0.0602 = 0.3302
Therefore using the equation:
Battery Size (Standby time in Amp Hours) = 1.25 x [( TALM x IALM) + ( TSBY x ( IQP + IQL))]
Battery Size (Standby time in Amp Hours) = 1.25 x [(0.5 x 0.33) + (24 x (0.20 + 0.06))]
Battery Size (Standby time in Amp Hours) = 1.25 x [(0.5 x 0.33) + (24 x 0.26)]
Battery Size (Standby time in Amp Hours) = 1.25 x [0.165 + 6.24]
Battery Size (Standby time in Amp Hours) = 1.25 x 6.405
Battery Size (Standby time in Amp Hours) = 8.01 Amp Hours
For a system like this, 2 x 12V sealed lead acid batteries must be used each with a capacity greater than 8.01 Ah. For example,
12Ah
