FIRE
DETECTION
SYSTEMS
VES was founded with one mission: to give dealers a
comprehensive, cost-effective means of providing fire detection
networks for corporate, educational, government and retail
campuses of any size using 21st century technologies.
Building on our success in the Engineered Systems Market we
continue to expand our Elite range of fire detection products
including the all new Elite RS and XT control panel. With Elite, VES
enables Dealers to compete in the small and medium systems
market, without compromising on features or expandability.
Rest easy, knowing that our systems will grow with you, from a
simple 32 point system to a 32,000 point system. No matter what
the scope of your installation, all of the VES panels program with
easy-to-use software.
Our state-of-the-art line of sensors and modules are easy to
install, requiring no special programming tool. Sensor heads
assume the address of the base, for easy swap-outs and all
other modules use simple DIP switch programming for address
and feature selection. Whether you need a single product line
to satisfy small installations or the ability to offer larger system
solutions including multi-panel networking, VES has the product
range. Remember all VES panels program with easy-to-use, easyto-learn configuration software.

Building Management System
Communications Interface
Gateway for Integration
Product Overview
Convenient incorporation of fire detection into your building management system without
compromise.
OpenConnect Gateway is an embedded device which sits between the Fire Alarm Control
Panel and the BMS system.
OpenConnect Gateway gets its Fire Alarm Information Via RS232 or RS485 from a special
interface board located in one of the Fire Alarm Control Panel nodes. OpenConnect
Gateway can send its BMS information in a number of standard transmission methods to
Accessories included:
24 V ac/dc psu
120/240 V ac psu
RS485 interface card
Note as standard configuration each
OpenConnect Gateway includes:
2x Ethernet Ports (RJ45 connector)
1x RS232 port (9 pin D type connector)
1x RS485 port (3 way 2 part connector)
15 V dc input
2x spare comms card slot
the BMS system.
It’s already been done with environmental and security systems—heating, ventilation,
lighting, security and access control, but fire detection and alarm systems have always been
different. Fire detection systems save lives and are subject to much tougher standards and
controls than security or other systems usually are, however wouldn’t it be more convenient
if you could incorporate fire detection into your building management systems (BMS).
OpenConnect makes this possible without any unique software being written and using a
simple, off-the shelf product.
The OpenConnect Gateway takes the information from your fire alarm control panel and
connects it to your building management system using standard BMS protocols. These
include: Modbus®, BACnet™ and LonWorks®.
Kentec and VES Analog Fire Alarm Control Panels using Apollo Protocol are capable of
integration with the OpenConnect Gateway.
Standard Features
Increased efficiency of system management
No modification to fire detection and SLC
devices
Integrity of fire alarm system assured
Reduced cost through standard software
and single interface
Full system integration
Recurring engineering not required for each
project

Page 20
On the dual action, the push bar rotates
inward allowing the “PULL” handle to be
grasped and operated by a single hand.
When used with the VF6001 Fast Response
Contact Module, each addressable contact
monitoring module is programmed with
its own unique Signaling Line Circuit (SLC)
loop address.
Up to 126 devices can be placed on the
Elite SLC loop. The module supervises the
wiring to the contact with an End Of Line
(EOL) resistor. It can be programmed to
monitor normally open (NO) or normally
closed (NC) contacts. If a fault condition
occurs in the wiring, the module sends
a trouble status signal to the fire alarm
control panel. When a change of status
is sensed by the fast response contact
module, it sends an interrupt to the
control panel indicating that an alarm has
occurred.
After addressing, Manual Pull Stations are
fully configurable through Loop Explorer.

The radioactive source holder and the
smoke chamber form positive and negative
electrodes respectively. An Americium
241 radioactive source mounted within
the reference chamber irradiates the air
in both chambers, producing positive and
negative ions.
A voltage across the electrodes produces
an electric field. Ions are attracted to
the Electrode of the opposite sign to
their own charge; many recombine but
a small electric current flows between
the electrodes. At the junction between
reference and smoke chambers, the
sensing electrode converts variations in
chamber current into voltage hanges.
When smoke particles enter the ionization
chamber, ions become attached to them
with the result that the current flowing
through the chamber decreases. This
effect is greater in the chamber decreases.
Operation - continued
This effect is greater in the smoke chamber than in the
reference chamber, and the imbalance causes the sensing
electrode to become more positive. The analog voltage at
the sensor electrode is converted to a digital format which is
processed to provide on analog value or transmission to the
control panel when the device is polled.
The VF5600 Discovery Ionization Sensor, like all Ionization
Sensors, has some sensitivity to air movement (wind). The
extent to which the analog value will change depends on the
wind speed and on the orientation of the detector relative
to the wind direction. Relatively small changes in wind
direction can cause significant changes in analog value. For
wind speeds up to 200 ft/min the change in analog value will
not exceed 5 counts. Continuous operation in wind speeds
greater than 400 ft/min is not however recommended. It will
not under any conditions increase the probability of false
alarms. Ionization smoke detectors are supplied in individual
packing with a red lid serving as a dust cover which can be
left in place after fitting to prevent ingress of foreign material
until commissioning of the system takes place. At this point,
the covers must be removed.
Engineering Specification
The Ionization smoke Sensor shall be VF5600, where indicated

Within the case is a printed circuit board
which, on one side, has the light-proof
chamber with integral gauze surrounding
the optical measuring system and, on
the other, the signal processing and
communications electronics. An infrared light emitting diode is arranged at
an obtuse angle to the photo-diode. The
photo-diode has an integral daylightblocking filter. The IR LED emits a burst
of light every second. In clear air the
photodiode receives no light directly
from the IR LED, because of the angular
arrangement and the chamber Baffles.
When smoke enters the chamber it
scatters light from the emitter IR LED onto
the photo-diode in an amount related to
the smoke characteristics and density. The
photo-diode signal is processed to provide
an analog value for transmission when the
Sensor is interrogated.

The VF5602 Analog Addressable Thermal
Sensors are designed to provide the highest
effectiveness by utilizing the latest technology.
The sensor is designed for operation with the
Elite addressable fire alarm control panels.
The VF5602 Heat Sensor uses a single
thermistor to sense the air temperature at the
detector position. The thermistor is connected
in a resistor network, which produces a voltage
output dependent on the temperature. The
design of the resistor network, together with
processing algorithm in the micro-controller,
gives an approximately linear characteristic
from 50°F to 176°F. This line-arised signal is
further processed, depending on the response
mode selected, and converted to an analog
output. A detector may be given an “R” or
“S” suffix. The “R” suffix indicated that the
Sensor has been shown to have a rate of rise
characteristic. Such a Sensor will still give a
rapid response even when starting from an
ambient temperature well below its typical
application temperature.
This type of Sensor is therefore suitable for
areas such as unheated warehouses in which
ambient temperature may be very low for long
periods. The “S” suffix indicates that the Sensor
will not respond below its minimum static
response temperature even when exposed to
high rates of rise of air temperature. This type is
therefore suitable for areas such as kitchens and
boiler rooms where large, rapid temperature
changes are considered normal.

Discovery Multisensor Sensor
Standard Features
Overview
Compatible with Elite and Elite RS
control panels
The VF5603 Discovery Multisensor Sensor
contains a photo
smoke sensor and a
thermistor temperature
sensor
whose
outputs are combined to give the final analog
value. The way in which the signals from the
two sensor are combined depends on the
response mode selected. The five modes
provide response behavior which incorporated
pure heat detection, pure smoke detection,
and a combination of both. The multisensor
is therefore useful over the widest range of
applications. The outer smoke chamber has
inlet apertures fitted with insect resistant mesh.

The Multisensor construction is similar to that
of the Photo Sensor but uses a different lid
and optical moldings to accommodate the
thermistor temperature sensor. The sectional
view shows the arrangement of the optical
chamber and the thermistor.
Operation
The signals form the optical smoke sensing
element and the temperature sensor are
independent, and represent the smoke level
and the air temperature respectively in the
vicinity of the detector. The Sensor’s microcontroller processes the two signals according
to the mode selected. When the sensor is
operating as a multisensor (i.e. Modes 1, 3, and
4) the temperature signal processing extracts
only rate-of-rise information for combination
with the optical signal.
In these modes the Sensors will not respond
to a slow temperature increase- even if the
temperature reaches a high level. A large
sudden change in temperature can, however,
cause an alarm without the presence of
smoke, if sustained for 20 seconds. The process
algorithms in modes 1 to 4 incorporate drift
compensation.
Modes
The characteristics of the five response modes are summarized below.
Mode 1 has a very high smoke sensitivity combined with high
temperature sensitivity. This gives a high overall sensitivity to both
smoldering and flaming fires.
Mode 2 has smoke sensitivity similar to that of a normal Photoelectric
Sensor, but has no response to temperature. This mode is therefore
equivalent to a standard Photo Sensor. This mode is suitable for
applications in which wide temperature changes occur under normal
conditions.
Mode 3 has moderate smoke sensitivity combined with moderate
sensitivity to heat. This combination is considered the optimum
for most general applications since it offers good response to both
smoldering and flaming fires.
Mode 4 has lower than normal smoke sensitivity combined with high
heat sensitivity. This makes it suitable for applications in which a certain
amount of fumes or smoke is considered normal.
Technical Specifications
Mode 5 has no smoke sensitivity at all, but give a pure Heat Sensor
response. In this mode the Sensor will respond to slowly changing
temperature and has a “fixed temperature” alarm threshold at 135°F. The
analog value in this mode will give the approximate air temperature
over the range of 59°F to 131°F. In Mode 5, the smoke sensor is still active
though it does not contribute to the analog signal. As a consequence, if
the detector is used in a dirty or smoky environment the optical sensor
drift flag may be activated in the heat-only mode.

XP95A Ionization Smoke Sensor
Standard Features
Responds well to fast burning, flaming
fires
Designed to operate in a variety of
environments
Minimal effects from temperature,
humiditty, atmospheric pressure
Overview
The XP95A Ionization Sensor uses a low
activity radioactive foil to detect fires by
irradiating the air in smoke chambers and
causing a current flow. If smoke enters the
chamber, the current flow if reduced leading
to an alarm.
Operation
The XP95A Ionization Smoke Sensor
has a moulded self-extinguishing white
polycarbonate case with wind resistant
smoke inlets. Stainless steel wiper contacts
connect the detector to the terminals in the
mounting base. Inside the detector case is a
printed circuit board that has the Ionization
chamber mounted on one side and the
address capture, signal processing and
communications electronics on the other.
The ionization chamber system is an inner
reference chamber contained inside an outer
smoke chamber. The outer smoke chamber
has smoke inlet apertures that are fitted with
an insect resistant mesh.
The radioactive source holder and the outer
smoke chamber are the positive and negative
electrodes respectively. An Americium 241
radioactive source mounted within the
inner reference chamber irradiates the air
in both chambers to produce positive and
negative ions. On applying a voltage across
these electrodes an electric field is formed as
shown in the diagram.
Page 30
The ions are attracted to the electrode of
the opposite sign, some ions collide and
recombine, but the net result is that a
small electric current flows between the
electrodes. At the junction between the
reference and smoke chambers is the sensing
electrode that is used to convert variations in
the chamber currents into a voltage.
When smoke particles enter the Ionization
chamber, ions become attached to them with
the result that the current flowing through
the Ionization chamber decreases. This effect
is greater in the smoke chamber than in the
reference chamber and the imbalance causes
the sensing electrode to go more positive.
The voltage on the sensing electrode is
monitored by the sensor electronics and
is processed to produce a signal that is
translated by the A/D converter in the
communications ASIC ready for transmission
when the device is interrogated.
Electrical Description
The Sensor is designed to be connected to
a two wire loop circuit carrying both data
and a 17V to 28V dc supply. The detector is
connected to the incoming and outgoing
supply via terminals L1 and L2 in the
mounting base. A remote LED indicator
requiring not more than 4mA at 5V may be
connected between +R and -R terminals. An
earth connection terminal is also provided,
although this is not required for the
functioning of the detector.
The Sensor is calibrated to give an analog
value of 25±7 counts in clean air. This value
increases with smoke density. A count of
55 corresponds to the UL alarm sensitivity
level. See graph overleaf. Counts of 8 or
less indicate fault conditions. Count levels
between 45 counts and 55 counts can be
used to provide an early warning of fire.
Electrical Characteristics
The VF5669 Ionization Smoke Sensors are designed to operate in a wide variety of environments.
There are only small effects from temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure and wind. Sensors
are well protected against electromagnetic interference over a wide frequency range.
The VF5669 Ionization Sensor, like all Ionization Sensor’s, has some sensitivity to air movement
(wind). The extent to which the analog value will change depends on the wind speed and on
the orientation of the detector relative to the wind direction. Relatively small changes in wind
direction can cause significant changes in analog value.
For wind speeds up to 1m/s (200ft/min) the change in analog value will not exceed 5 counts.
Continuous operation in wind speeds greater than 2m/s (400ft/ min) is not recommended.
However, wind speeds up to 10m/s (2000ft/min) can be tolerated for short periods and will not
under any conditions increase the probability of false alarms.

Overview
The VF5670 Photoelectric Smoke Sensor
works on the light scatter principle and is
ideal for applications where slow burning or
smouldering fires are likely.
Operation
The VF5670 Photoelectric Sensor uses the
same outer case as the ionization smoke
Sensor and is distinguished by the indicator
LED which is clear in standby and red in alarm.
Within the case is a printed circuit board which
on one side has the light proof labyrinth
chamber with integral gauze surrounding the
optical measuring system and on the other
the address capture, signal processing and
communications electronics.
An infrared light emitting diode within its
collimator is arranged at an obtuse angle
to the photo-diode. The photodiode has an
integral daylightblocking filter.
Page 32
The IR LED emits a burst of collimated light
every second. In clear air the photo-diode
receives no light directly from the IR LED
because of the angular arrangement and the
dual mask. When smoke enters the chamber
it scatters photons from the emitter IR LED
onto the photo-diode in an amount related
to the smoke characteristics and density.
The photo-diode signal is processed by the
optical ASIC and passed to the A/D converter
on the communications ASIC ready for
transmission when the device is interrogated.
Electrical Description
The VF5670 Sensor is designed to be
connected to a two wire loop circuit carrying
both data and a 17V to 28V dc supply. The
Sensor is connected to the incoming and
outgoing supply via terminals L1 and L2 in
the mounting base. A remote LED indicator
requiring not more than 4mA at 5V may be
connected between the +R and -R terminals.
An earth connection terminal is also
provided.
The Sensor is calibrated to give an analog
value of 25±7 counts in clean air. This value
increases with smoke density. A count of 55
corresponds to the UL alarm sensitivity level.

Overview
The XP95A VF5603 multisensor is basically
an optical smoke Sensor and will therefore
respond well to smoke from smouldering
fires. The multisensor Sensor also senses air
temperature. This temperature sensitivity
allows the multisensor to give a response to
fast burning (flame) fires, which is similar to
that of an ionization Sensor. The multisensor
can therefore be used as an alternative to an
ionization Sensor.
The Multisensor construction is similar to
that of the photoelectric Sensor but uses
a different lid and optical mouldings to
accommodate the thermistor temperature
sensor. The sectional view shows the
arrangement of the optical chamber and
thermistor.
The signals from the optical smoke
sensing element and the temperature
sensor are independent, and represent
the smoke level and the air temperature
respectively in the vicinity of the detector.
The Sensor’s microcontroller processes
the two signals. The temperature signal
processing extracts only rate of rise
information for combination with the
optical signal. The Sensor will not respond
to a slow temperature increase - even
if the temperature reaches a high level.
A large sudden change in temperature
can, however, cause an alarm without
the presence of smoke, if sustained for 20
seconds.
The
processing
algorithms
in
the
multisensor
incorporate
drift
compensation. The sensitivity of the
Sensor is considered the optimum for
most general applications since it offers
good response to both smouldering and
flaming fires.

Operation
The Series 65A Photoelectric Smoke Detector
has a moulded self-extinguishing white
polycarbonate case with wind resistant
smoke inlets. Nickel plated stainless steel
wiper contacts connect the detector to the
base. Inside the case a printed circuit board
has the optical system mounted on one side
and the signal processing electronics on
the other. The sensing chamber is a black
moulding configured as a labyrinth which
prevents penetration of ambient light.
The labyrinth has a fine gauze Top section,
Series 65A Photoelectric Smoke Detector
insect-resistant cover. The chamber houses
an infrared light emitting diode (LED) and a
photo-diode which has an integral visiblelight filter as extra protection against
ambient light.
Every three seconds the LED emits a burst of
collimated light, modulated at 4kHz. In clear
air, light from the LED does not fall directly on
the diode because the LED is positioned at an
obtuse angle to the diode.
Page 52
When smoke enters the chamber, a
fraction of the collimated light is scattered
onto the photo-diode. If the resulting
signal from the photo-diode is above a
preset threshold, the LED emits two more
bursts of light, this time at two-second
intervals. If light is scattered onto the
photo-diode by both these pulses – due
to the presence of smoke – the detector
signals an alarm state by switching the
alarm latch on, increasing the current
drawn from the supply from about 40μA
to a maximum of 75mA. This fall in the
impedance of the detector is recognised
by the control panel as an alarm signal.
The alarm current also illuminates the
detector integral LED. A remote indicator
connected between the L1 IN terminal
and the –R terminal will have a voltage
equal to the supply voltage less 1 volt
across it and so will illuminate.
To ensure correct operation of the
detector the control panel must be
arranged to supply a maximum of 33
volts DC and a minimum of 9 volts DC in
normal operation. The supply may fall to
6 volts DC in alarm conditions if a supply
current of at least 10mA is available at this
voltage. To ensure effective illumination of
the integral LED and any remote indicator,
the supply to the detector should exceed
12 volts.
To restore the detector to quiescent
condition, it is necessary to expel any
smoke and interrupt the electrical supply
to the detector for a minimum of one
second.

Wide operating voltage
Flashing LED option
Flashing LED and magnet operated test
switch option
Operation
The detector has a moulded selfextinguishing white polycarbonate case.
Nickel plated stainless steel wiper contacts
connect the detector to the base. Inside
the case a printed circuit board holds the
signal processing electronics. A pair of
matched negative temperature co-efficient
thermistors are mounted on the PCB in such
a way that one thermistor is exposed to give
good thermal contact with the surrounding
air while the other thermistor is thermally
insulated.
Under stable conditions both thermistors
are in thermal equilibrium and have the
same value of resistance. If air temperature
increases rapidly the resistance of the
exposed thermistor becomes less than that
of the insulated thermistor. The ratio of the
resistance of the thermistors is monitored
electronically and an alarm is initiated if
the ratio exceeds a factory preset level. This
feature determines the ‘rate of rise’ response
of the detector.
If air temperature increases slowly, no
significant resistance difference develops
between the thermistors, but at high
temperatures a fixed value resistance
connected in series with the insulated
thermistor becomes significant.
Page 54
When the sum of the resistance of the
insulated thermistor and the fixed resistor
compared to the resistance of the exposed
thermistor reaches a preset value, an alarm
is initiated. The value of the fixed resistor
is selected to set the detector into alarm
state at a specified fixed temperature.
The detector signals an alarm state by
switching an alarm latch on, increasing
the current drawn from the supply from
about 50μA to a maximum of about 75mA.
This fall in the impedance of the detector
is recognised by the control panel as an
alarm signal.
The alarm current also illuminates the
detector integral LED. A remote indicator
connected between the L1 IN terminal
and the –R terminal will have a voltage
equal to the supply voltage less 1 volt
across it and so will illuminate.
To ensure correct operation of the
detector the control panel must be
arranged to supply a maximum of 33 volts
DC and a minimum of 9 volts DC in normal
operation. The supply may fall to 6 volts
DC in alarm conditions if a supply current
of at least 10mA is available at this voltage.
To ensure effective illumination of the
integral LED and any remote indicator, the
supply to the detector should exceed 12
volts. To restore the detector to quiescent
condition, it is necessary to restore a
normal temperature level and interrupt
the electrical supply to the detector for a
minimum of one second.

Operation
The detector has a moulded self-extinguishing
white polycarbonate case with wind resistant
smoke inlets. Nickel plated stainless steel wiper
contacts connect the detector to the base.
Inside the detector case a printed circuit board
has the ionization chamber mounted on one
side and the signal processing electronics on the
other.
The ionization chamber consists of a reference
chamber contained inside a smoke chamber (Fig.
1). The outer smoke chamber has inlet apertures
fitted with insect resistant mesh. The radioactive
source holder and smoke chamber form positive
and negative electrodes respectively.
An Americium 241 radioactive source mounted
within the reference chamber irradiates the air in
both chambers, producing positive and negative
ions. A voltage across the electrodes produces an
electric field.
Ions are attracted to the electrode of the opposite
sign to their own charge. Many recombine
but a small electric current flows between the
electrodes. At the junction between reference
and smoke chambers the sensing electrode
converts variations in chamber current into
voltage changes.
Page 56
When smoke particles enter the ionization
chamber ions become attached to them with
the result that the current flowing through
the chambers decreases. This effect is greater
in the smoke chamber than in the reference
chamber, and the imbalance causes the
sensing electrode to become more positive.
The voltage at the sensing electrode is fed
to a comparator where it is compared with a
factory-set clean air reference voltage. If the
monitored voltage exceeds the reference
voltage, the comparator switches the alarm
latch on, increasing the current drawn from
the supply from about 40μA to a maximum
of 75mA. This fall in the impedance of the
detector is recognised by the control panel
as an alarm signal.
The alarm latch current also illuminates the
detector integral LED. A remote indicator
connected between the L1 IN terminal and
the –R terminal will have a voltage equal to
the supply voltage less 1 volt across it and so
will illuminate. To ensure correct operation
of the detector the control panel must be
arranged to supply a maximum of 33 volts
DC and a minimum of 9 volts DC in normal
operation.
The supply may fall to 6 volts DC in alarm
conditions if a supply current of at least
10mA is available at this voltage. To ensure
effective illumination of the integral LED
and any remote indicator, the supply to the
detector should exceed 12 volts.
To restore the detector to quiescent
condition, it is necessary to expel any smoke
and interrupt the electrical supply to the
detector for a minimum of one second.

Product Overview
The VES VoiceAlert High Rise Evacuation System
operates in conjunction with the Elite Fire Alarm
Control Panel (FACP) in a building to provide
automatic response to life safety emergencies.
The VoiceAlert system includes all necessary
features to provide an effective voice evacuation
system. The VoiceAlert can be custom configured
to satisfy the needs of any high rise application.
Fire department authorities can easily take
command of evacuation or relocation procedures
and emergencies. Building management and fire
brigades can monitor and control emergency
response even before the professionals arrive.
The VoiceAlert system includes capacity for 6
Channels of simultaneous audio. This provides for
evacuation, stay-in-place, or other public address
announcements and automatic messages.
Fire Fighter Phones or Warden Stations may be
included as required. Area-of-Rescue stations can
reassure handicapped occupants that help is on
the way. Smoke control, stair pressurization, and
HVAC shutdown can be completely automatic,
unless controlled manually by management or
fire authorities.

*Operating the horn in this mode at this voltage will result in not meeting the minimum UL reverberant sound level required for public mode fire
protection service. These settings are acceptable only for private mode fire alarm use. Use the high dBA setting for public mode application.
Notes: The sound output for the temporal 3 tone is rated lower since the time the horn is off is averaged into the sound output rating.
While the horn is producing a tone in the temporal 3 mode its sound pressure is the same as the continuous mode.
To obtain the horn/strobe current draw, add the strobe current draw and the horn current draw.
The listed horn current draws are for the Continuous Tone mode. The Temporal 3 Tone has a reverberant dBA @ 10ft. per UL 464 is 77-83 with a

Note: When using the VES Series incoming positive power lead
must be broken and each lead is to be inserted into each of the
top two terminals. If two power runs are made to the signal, one
for the strobe and one for the horn, only one of the runs must have
its positive lead broken and placed under the two separate top
terminals. A barrier is provided to prevent both leads from being
placed under the same terminal.
Note: The VF4009 Modules are listed per UL 1971/Signaling Appliances
for the Hearing Impaired with a voltage range of 8-33 VDC/fwr and
CAN/ULC S526-M87, Visual Signaling Appliances, with a voltage range
of 10 VDC/fwr to 30 VDC/fwr - 20% +10%. It is for indoor use only, with
a temperature range of 0oC - 49oC (32oF - 120oF) and a maximum
humidity of 93%RH.
Caution: The VF4009 Modules are to be connected only to circuits that
provide continuously applied voltage. Do not use this module on coded
or interrupted circuits in which the voltage is cycled on and off.
