Description of the Alarm
SHIPMENT DETAILS
When you receive an ALERT-2 series alarm from Amico Corporation, the package will consist of two main sections; the
Alarm Back Box and the Frame/Module Assembly. The Frame/Module assembly will be pre-configured, with the appropriate display modules, based upon the customer’s specifications.
THE ALARM BACK BOX
The Alarm Back Box contains the auto-switchable System Power Supply with an ON/OFF switch, a built-in fuse and terminal blocks (115 VAC, or 220 VAC). The back box also incorporates the pipe stubs for applications that require locally
(in box) mounted sensors.
THE FRAME/MODULE ASSEMBLY
The Frame/Module Assembly consists of the frame and all the modules that are pre-assembled to the customers specification. The hinged frame is designed to swing down from the back box to facilitate installation and servicing of the
alarm. This design will reduce installation time and eliminate the risk of improper installation since all the modules are
connected and tested at the factory.
Description of the Modules
The ALERT-2 alarm is divided into 4 or 7 main modules:
COMMON TO ALL ALARMS
1. SYSTEM POWER SUPPLY
The System Power Supply has been pre-installed into the back box assembly. The System Power Supply converts the
AC voltage supply to the alarm into two voltages: 5 VDC (regulated) required by the microprocessor hardware and 15
VDC (unregulated) required by the buzzer and the LED’s. This unit also contains the main ON/OFF power switch, the
transformer, the heat sink, the main fuse and fuse cover, the rectifying circuitry, the terminal blocks and the low voltage
DC power cable for connecting this unit to the annunciator module. The System Power Supply can be easily removed
and reinstalled by unscrewing it from the back box.

2. ANNUNCIATOR MODULE
2.
The Annunciator Module contains the buzzer, a “Power On” LED, the “TEST” and the
“ALARM MUTE” buttons. The function of the “TEST” button is to verify that the buzzer and all
the LED’s are in working condition. An alarm will be heard when this button is pushed and
all the LED’s will light up. When the button is released, the alarm will silence. The “ALARM MUTE”
button is used to silence an alarm that has occurred. This module also contains a fail-safe relay
that de-energizes when the buzzer is activated. This relay can be used with the “Amico remote
buzzer”, for applications requiring a remote audible alarm (see Appendix B), for connection to
another Amico Alarm or a Building Management System.

Installation
THE ALARM BOX
Install the back-box to the studs of the wall at the desired height. Ensure that the box is securely in place. The mounting
brackets are adjustable to suit the thickness of the wall. MAKE SURE the box is parallel, squared and flush with the finished wall
surface, to ensure that the frame assembly will fit properly.
FOR LOCAL SENSOR ONLY
If the sensors are to be mounted locally (inside the back box), the pipe stubs must be connected to the pipeline. Using
silver-brazing techniques, connect each pipe stub to it’s appropriate gas or vacuum while ensuring that the bottom of
the pipe stub is wrapped with a damp cloth. BE CAREFUL not to damage the DISS check-valve by overheating the lower
portion of the copper pipe. When the brazing of pipe stubs has been completed, the system can be pressure tested.
STANDING PRESSURE TEST
Perform a standing pressure test on the piping system as per NFPA-99 “Health Care Facilities”. Inspect all joints for leaks
and make certain each gas is piped to a correspondingly labelled gas service.
FRAME/MODULE ASSEMBLY
Step #1
Remove the frame/module assembly from its protective box.
Step #2
Remove screws from the frame section (6 screws).
Step #3
Attach the flat head screws (provided with frame in plastic bag) to the hinge. This will line up with holes on the box.
Step #4
Attach the frame wire with 2 dome head screws (provided with frame in plastic bag).
Step #5
Close the frame panel and tighten the screws on the frame plate.
Step #6
Carefully place the front frame over the fastened plate. Refasten the screws that were removed in Step #2.
