- 10 amp NAC Power Extender
Rev. 090414
More than just power.™
Overview:
The Altronix FireSwitch108 is a cost effective managed NAC Power Extender. It interfaces with 12 or 24VDC Fire Alarm
Control Panels (FACP) to provide Notification Appliance Circuit expansion support, for additional horns/strobes to allow
ADA compliancy. It also provides auxiliary power to support system accessories. It delivers electronically regulated and
filtered 24VDC power to Class B or Class A­­ NAC loop circuits. Additionally, a separate 1 amp auxiliary output for 4-wire
smoke detectors is available. Alarm current can be divided between the eight (8) outputs for powering NAC devices. Outputs
are rated at 2.5 amp max., and can be independently programmed for Steady, Temporal Code 3 or Strobe Synchronization.
All outputs may be programmed for Input to Output Follower Mode (output will follow input. i.e. March Time Input, March
Time Output). In non-alarm condition independent loop supervision for Class A and/or Class B FACP NAC circuits is provided. In the event of a loop trouble, the FACP will be notified via the steered input (input 1 or input 2). In addition, there
are common trouble output terminals [NC, C, NO] which are used to indicate general loop/system trouble. Two (2) FACP
signaling outputs can be employed and directed to control supervision and power delivery to any combination of the eight
(8) outputs. It provides a programmable LCD display interface, plus an ethernet port interface for remote programmability
and monitoring.

FireSwitch Applications:
1. General Information:
Altronix FireSwitch units are very versatile devices. They can be used with or without specific synchronization
modules provided by some manufacturers. Multiple units can be synchronized by using either the built-in sync mode or
a external synchronization module. Please note that only notification appliances with synchronization capabilities can be
synchronized. Contact signal manufacturer for more detailed information. Units can operate with either one (1) or two (2)
outputs from the FACP.

To comply with requirements of applicable UL and NFPA standards Fire Systems (UL 864), General Purpose Signaling Devices and Systems (UL 2017), CAN/ULC-S527-99 Control units for Fire Alarm Systems, NFPA 72, and NFPA 720
audible and visual notification appliances have to be used on different circuits. Systems has to be monitored by a supervising
station and emergency response provided in accordance with NFPA 720.
CO combination mode settings are not accessible through IP interface. In CO alarm mode the unit will indicate CO
alarm which will be superseded by fire alarm, if fire alarm is initiated. In order for CO alarm mode to operate, horns and
strobes have to be wired separately. The outputs for strobes should be programmed for 1e mode. The outputs for horns
should be programmed for 2e mode. FACP has to initiate output 2 only during CO alarm and Output 1 and Output 2 during
fire alarm condition. To silence the horns during fire alarm condition
Output 2 has to be turned off, but Output 1 has to stay on. During CO
alarm (Input 2 initiated only) horns will generate CO alert sequence
(Temporal 4 pattern) and strobes will flash every second. During fire
alarm condition (Input 1 only or Inputs 1 and 2) strobes will flash and Fig. 8
horns will generate Temporal3 pattern, unless silenced.

outputs can each be set for the desired NAC drive signal, such as Code 3
(Output Programming Selection Table, pg. 6). Non-synchronizable Audible Appliances will follow the sequence, when
feature is selected.
5. Using Multiple NAC Power Extenders from an FACP:
FireSwitch is designed to follow (replicate) the coded sequence, generated by a manufacturer’s sync module. Up to
eleven (11) FireSwitch108 units can be synchronized when interconnected with a host FACP. Connect the output of
the FACP module to Input 1 and Input 2 Terminate the input circuit with the EOL (FACP), connecting it to terminals
marked [RET+ and RET-], or continue the input circuit, connecting to terminals marked [RET+ and RET-] to
[INP+ and INP-] of the next unit when multiple units need to be triggered.
In case FACP does not have any synchronization capabilities and the sync mode is not used,
the notification appliance synchronization will not be provided.

FireSwitch units include built-in protocols to support Amseco/Potter, Gentex®, System Sensor® or CooperWheelock®
two-wire synchronizable devices, therefore an external sync module is not required (Output Programming Selection
Table, pg. 6). In these modes, Input 1 is always used to activate visual notification appliances (strobes), and Input 2 is
used to activate and silence audible notification appliances (strobes) (Table, pg. 6).
Note: Input 1 has to be activated in all the configurations.
7. Synchronizing multiple NAC Power Extender units (up to twelve):
Method 1 allows up to twelve (12) units to be synchronized (Fig. 10, pg. 13).
Method 2 allows up to four (4) units to be synchronized (Fig. 11, pg. 14).
