VF5600
SLC Devices
Discovery Ionization Smoke Sensor
Standard Features
Overview
Compatible with Elite and Elite RS
control panels
The VF5600 Discovery Ionization Smoke Detector
has a molded white polycarbonate case with
windresistant smoke inlets. Inside the case is a
printed circuit board which has the ionization
chamber mounted on one side and the signal
processing and communications electronics on
the other. The ionization chamber consists of a
reference chamber contained inside a smoke
chamber. The outer smoke chamber has inlet
apertures fitted with insect resistant mesh.

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. 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.

Technical Specifications
The VF5600 Discovery Ionization Detector, like all Ionization
detectors, 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.

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
infra-red light emitting diode is arranged at an
obtuse angle to the photo-diode. The photodiode has an integral daylight-blocking 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 detector is interrogated.

The VF5602 Heat Detector 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 detector has been
shown to have a rate of rise characteristic. Such
a detector will still give a rapid response even
when starting from an ambient temperature
well below its typical application temperature.
This type of detector 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 detector
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 Detector
Standard Features
Overview
Compatible with Elite and Elite RS
control panels
The VF5603 Discovery Multisensor Detector
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 detector 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 detector’s microcontroller processes the two signals according
to the mode selected. When the detectors 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 detectors 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
Technical Specifications
The characteristics of the five response modes are summarized below.
Stand current: 500μA
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
detector, but has no response to temperature. This mode is therefore
equivalent to a standard photo detector. This mode is suitable for
applications in which wide temperature changes occur under normal
conditions.
Alarm current: 3.5mA
Operating voltage: 17-28 VDC
Max. continuous operating temp: 140°F
Min. continuous operating temp: 32°F
Min. Operating temp: -4°F (no condensation/icing)
Storage: -22°F to 176°F
Detector weight: 3.68 oz
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.
Detector with base weight: 5.62 oz
Dimensions: Diameter: 3.93”, Height: 1.65”, Height in base: 1.96”
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.
Mode 5 has no smoke sensitivity at all, but give a pure heat detector
response. In this mode the detector 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 Detector 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
Sectional view - XP95A Ionization Smoke Detector
Diagram showing lines of equipotential for the XP95A
Ionization Smoke Monitor
VES LLC, 620 Allendale Road,
King of Prussia, PA. 19406
The XP95A Ionization Smoke Detector
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.
shown in the diagram. 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 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 detector 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 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
The detector 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
Analog Value (Counts)
The VF5669 Ionization Smoke Detectors are designed to operate in a wide variety of environments
(See graphs). There are only small effects from temperature, humidity, atmospheric pressure and
wind. Detectors are well protected against electromagnetic interference over a wide frequency
range.
TheVF5669 Ionization Detector, like all Ionization Detectors, 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.
Obscuration in smoke dB/m
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.

VES LLC, 620 Allendale Road,
King of Prussia, PA. 19406
The XP95A series analog addressable heat
detector head, model VF5668, is molded from
white polycarbonate material with a low air
flow resistance design. Stainless steel wiper
contacts connect the sensor to the terminals,
which are polarity insensitive, in the mounting
base. Inside the sensor case is a circuit board
with the sensing system on one side and
the address capture, signal processing, and
communication electronics on the other side.
The sensor monitors temperature by using a
single thermistor network, which provides a
voltage output proportional to the external air
temperature. This analog voltage is converted
to a digital signal, which is transmitted to the
Elite Fire Alarm Control Panel for interpretation.
The alarm threshold is programmed into the
Elite Fire Alarm Control Panel.
A high temperature CS heat detector which can
be installed in a typical ambient temperature of
131°f is available. See graph overleaf. This device
will give 55 counts at 194°F.
Electrical Description
The detectors are designed to be connected
to a two wire loop circuit carrying both data
and a 17V to 28V dc supply. The detectors are
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.
The detector is calibrated to give an analog
value of 25±5 counts at 77°F.

Overview
Sectional view - Multisensor Detector
VES LLC, 620 Allendale Road,
King of Prussia, PA. 19406
The XP95A VF5603 multisensor is basically
an optical smoke detector and will therefore
respond well to smoke from smouldering
fires. The multisensor detector 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 detetctor. The
multisensor can therefore be used as an
alternative to an ionization detector.
The Multisensor construction is similar to that of
the photoelectric detector 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 detector’s microcontroller
processes the two signals. The temperature
signal processing extracts only rate of rise
information for combination with the optical
signal. The detector 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 detector is considered the optimum for
most general applications since it offers good
response to both smouldering and flaming
fires.

Optical Beam Detector
Overview
XP95 Loop-powered Beam Detector
The XP95 beam detector has been designed
to protect large open spaces such as atria,
museums, churches, warehouses and
factories. It is made up of three main parts:
the transmitter, which projects a beam of
infra-red light, the receiver, which registers
the light and produces an electrical signal,
and the interface, which processes the signal
and generates alarm or fault signals.
Standard Features
Loop-powered
Compatible with XP95 and Discovery
Four selectable alarm levels
Drift compensation
The transmitter and receiver are designed
to be fitted on opposite walls approximately
1ft to 2ft below the ceiling. They can protect
areas up to 328ft long and 49ft wide, a total of
1794yds2. If it is difficult to fit the transmitter
and the receiver to opposite walls, they may
be fitted in retro mode, ie, adjacent to each
other on the same wall. A reflector needs to
be fitted to the opposite wall to reflect the
beam from the transmitter to the receiver.
The interface contains the electronic circuitry
needed to control the beam detector and
communicate with the control panel via the
XP95 or Discovery loop.
Remote interface
Simple wiring
Simple alignment
In clear air the receiver registers all the light
sent by the transmitter. If smoke from an
incipient fire is present, it rises and obscures
the light to a certain extent. The decrease in
the amount of light registered by the receiver
causes the beam detector to change to the
alarm state.
The detector compensates for signal drift and,
if the limit of compensation has been reached,
a fault signal is generated; the detector may
optionally be set to return a fault if the beam
is totally and suddenly obscured.
Loop-powered
The XP95 beam detector has been developed
from designs that have been well proven in
countless fire protection systems. A major
advance has, however, been made, in that the
XP95 beam detector is Loop-powered and
needs no separate 24V supply. This not only
eliminates the need for additionalequipment
- it also saves both cost and time in
installation.
VES LLC, 620 Allendale Road,
King of Prussia, PA. 19406
Compatibility
The beam detector operates as a conventional detector,
in that it changes to the alarm state at a pre-set level
of smoke obscuration, but is able to communicate
with the control panel and return information when
interrogated. The interface will operate on both the
XP95 and the Discovery protocols.
Selectable Alarm Levels
The XP95 beam detector is set on commissioning to
one of four levels of obscuration, determined with
reference to the environment in which it is installed.
The levels are 25%, 35%, 50% and 65%, where 25%
is the most sensitive and 65% the least sensitive
level. A DIL switch on the interface is used to set the
obscuration level.
Drift Compensation
It is possible that the amount of light registered by the
receiver is decreased by factors other than incipient
fires. The most obvious cause of such a change is
contamination of the lens of the receiver. In order to
minimise the risk of unwanted alarms, the XP95 beam
detector checks its status at regular intervals and
compensates for positive drift of signal. The analog
value sent to the control panel is pre-set and cannot
be further compensated by the panel.
Remote Interface
The optical and electronic elements of the XP95
beam detector are separate from one another, with
the majority of the electronics being housed in the
interface. The advantage of this is that the interface may
be installed in an accessible position. If it is required to
service the electronics of the beam detector, this can
be done without the need for access equipment.
Simple Wiring
The transmitter and the interface of the XP95 beam
detector can be wired to the nearest point of the loop.
No extra wiring is necessary for any purpose.
Simple Alignment
During commissioning it is necessary to align the
transmitter and receiver so that the beam is correctly
projected at the receiver. By its nature the beam is
invisible to the human eye, so that alignment has
traditionally been a complex procedure. The XP95
beam detector makes alignment simple - a highbrightness LED behind the receiver lens flashes while
the transmitter is being aligned. Once alignment is
correct, the LED stops flashing.

Addressable Pull Station
The VF3033 and VF3034 are versatile, highquality, metal Fire Alarm Pull Stations designed
to meet any installation demand.
Available in both single (VF3033) and dual
action (VF3034) configurations. VF3021 and
VF3022 pull stations are integrated with the
analog single contact module to provide a
simple-to-install addressable pull station. The
normally open contact of each station, which
closes when the pull station is activated, is
rated for 1 Amp, 30VDC. The contacts are gold
plated to avoid risk of corrosion.
All VF3033 and VF3034 models have been
tested by UL and found in compliance to the
latest requirements of the American’s With
Disabilities Act (ADA). VF3033 / VF3034
stations from VES are available with key
reset. Key reset models are available for
interchangeable keys. All models mount on a
standard, single gang backbox, VES VF300710 interior surface metal backbox or model

VES LLC, 620 Allendale Road,
King of Prussia, PA. 19406
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.

Sounder Bases
Multi Flex Sounder Base
Analog Addressable
Standard Features
Overview
Compatible panel silence functions
The Multi-Flex family of the smoke detector
sounder cases and synchronization modules
provide today’s most advanced functionality
and
performance,
delivering
flexible
notification capabilities for Apollo conventional
and analog addressable systems.
Sync network “self tests” to ensure
synchronized output if “upstream” sync
signal is lost
Sounders will operate in “failsafe” mode
if sync network is compromised
Sync modules available in MR-1
enclosures, snap track or chassis mount
for standard 2-gang box
Intelligent trouble reporting via
onboard Trouble LED
The bases offer selectable steady or temporal
pattern output and selectable high or low
volume levels. The three-pulse temporal
pattern is required by NFPA 72 for fire alarm
evacuation for commercial and residential
applications.
Available synchronization modules (SM) allow
temporal pattern sounder base circuits to
be completely synchronized and installed
in almost limitless configurations, and also
provide an onboard latching test function.
The sounder base requires an external
24VDC power supply. in the absence of a
synchronization module, a means for polarity
reversal is required for test and general alarm
functionality. The connections for the external
power supply and the communication loop are
opto-isolated to prevent electrical interaction
between them.

TROUBLE: Always FACP monitored and reported as trouble or supervisory in all program modes. Dry N.O.
contact held closed by the Powerower 24VDC input being present and the internal module circuitry being fully
operational. Also supervises the presence of a sync in signal when module is programmed in the “secondary” or
“sync only” modes. It is not used when the module is programmed in the “main” mode.
GENERAL ALARM: 24VDC steady or pulsed, silenceable, polarized FACP NAC Input. This input is used only when
the module is programmed in the “main” or “sync only” modes. When the connected NAC is in the alarm state the
module will provide a general alarm signal to all associated sounder/relay bases, causing them to sound if a horn
enable alarm input is also present.
HORN ENABLE: 24VDC steady or pulsed, silenceable polarized FACP NAC input. This input is used only when the
module is programmed in the “main” or “sync only” modes. When the connected NAC is in the alarm state the
module will be active and ready to accept a general alarm input. The status of the connected NAC will also be
monitored for subsequently being silenced from the FACP and will provide that signal to all associated sounder
bases, causing them to silence. Subsequent alarms will resound as signalled from the FACP NAC connected to this
input.
SYNC IN: 24VDC/protocol feed input from associated module programmed in the “main”, “secondary” or “sync
only” mode. This input is always used when the module is programmed in the “secondary” or “sync only” modes. It
is not used when the module is programmed in the “main” mode.
SYNC OUT: 24VDC/protocol feed output from module in all modes. When the module is programmed in the
“main” or “sync only” modes, also provides distinct horn enable and general alarm status information to all
associated sounder/relay bases and any modules programmed as “secondary”.
POWER 24VDC: 24VDC power feed in always required in all modes. When the module is programmed in the “sync
only” mode this input could be from a shared power supply with the associated “main” programmed
module. When the module is programmed in the “secondary” mode this input will always be supplied from a new
additional power source since that is the only reason it is being installed.

a tool and are located behind the appliance to
prevent tampering. Wall models feature voltage
test points to take readings with a voltage meter
for troubleshooting and AHJ inspection.
The VES series of notification appliances feature
a snap-on base that is designed to simplify
the installation and testing of horns, strobes,
and combination horn strobes. The separate
mounting base can be pre-wired so circuit
wiring can be fully tested before the appliance
is installed and the surface is finished. Once the
surrounding work is complete, the appliance can
be simply installed by snapping it on to the base.
Resettable shorting contacts in the base, which
provide continuity for circuit testing, are opened
when the appliance is installed. Any removal of
the appliance will indicate a trouble condition on
that circuit at the control panel that supervises
the circuit. The same base is used for all VES series
appliances to provide consistent installation and
easy replacement of appliances if required. Wall
models provide an optional locking screw for
extra secure installation, while the ceiling models
provide a captivated screw to prevent the screw
from falling during installation.

General Notes
Strobes are designed to flash at 1 flash per second minimum over their “Regulated Voltage Range”.
All candela ratings represent minimum effective strobe intensity based on UL Standard 1971.
Strobes are designed to operate under UL Standards 1971 and 464 for indoor use with a temperature range of 32°F
to 120°F (0°C to 49°C) and maximum humidity of 85% (± 2%) UL 464 (UL 1971).
Horns are designed to operate under UL Standard 464 for audible signal appliances (Indoor use only).
“Regulated Voltage Range” is the newest terminology used by UL to identify the voltage range. Prior to this change
UL used the terminology “Listed Voltage Range”.

Installation is easy with DH Series installation
technique - an adhesive template assures
alignment without secondary adjustments.
No brackets are required for recessed, flush
or surface mounting (the surface mounting
box has three conduit ready entries). Plus, the
new catch plate features two pivot points and
two way adjustability to further ensure perfect
alignment. Optional extension rods are also
available for providing the proper gap distance
between the door and wall.
The basic units offer superior reliability with
built-in transient protection and low residual
magnetism so they release easily even on new
ADA low pressure door closers.
