Fire Alarm System Limitations
While a fire alarm system may lower insurance rates, it is not a substitute for fire insurance!
An automatic fire alarm system—typically made up of
smoke detectors, heat detectors, manual pull stations, audible
warning devices, and a fire alarm control panel with remote
notification capability—can provide early warning of a developing fire. Such a system, however, does not assure protection
against property damage or loss of life resulting from a fire.
The Manufacturer recommends that smoke and/or heat detectors be located throughout a protected premise following the
recommendations of the National Fire Protection Association
Standard 72 (NFPA 72), manufacturer's recommendations,
State and local codes, and the recommendations contained in
the Guides for Proper Use of System Smoke Detectors, which
are made available at no charge to all installing dealers.
These documents can be found at http://www.systemsensor.com/html/applicat.html. A study by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (an agency of the United States
government) indicated that smoke detectors may not go off in
as many as 35% of all fires. While fire alarm systems are
designed to provide early warning against fire, they do not
guarantee warning or protection against fire. A fire alarm system may not provide timely or adequate warning, or simply
may not function, for a variety of reasons:
Smoke detectors may not sense fire where smoke cannot
reach the detectors such as in chimneys, in or behind walls, on
roofs, or on the other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors
also may not sense a fire on another level or floor of a building.
A second-floor detector, for example, may not sense a firstfloor or basement fire.
Particles of combustion or “smoke” from a developing fire
may not reach the sensing chambers of smoke detectors
because:
•
Barriers such as closed or partially closed doors, walls, or
chimneys may inhibit particle or smoke flow.
•
Smoke particles may become “cold,” stratify, and not reach
the ceiling or upper walls where detectors are located.
•
Smoke particles may be blown away from detectors by air
outlets.
•
Smoke particles may be drawn into air returns before
reaching the detector.
The amount of “smoke” present may be insufficient to alarm
smoke detectors. Smoke detectors are designed to alarm at
various levels of smoke density. If such density levels are not
created by a developing fire at the location of detectors, the
detectors will not go into alarm.
Smoke detectors, even when working properly, have sensing
limitations. Detectors that have photoelectronic sensing
chambers tend to detect smoldering fires better than flaming
fires, which have little visible smoke. Detectors that have ionizing-type sensing chambers tend to detect fast-flaming fires
better than smoldering fires. Because fires develop in different
ways and are often unpredictable in their growth, neither type
of detector is necessarily best and a given type of detector
may not provide adequate warning of a fire.
Smoke detectors cannot be expected to provide adequate
warning of fires caused by arson, children playing with
matches (especially in bedrooms), smoking in bed, and violent
explosions (caused by escaping gas, improper storage of
flammable materials, etc.).
2
Heat detectors do not sense particles of combustion and
alarm only when heat on their sensors increases at a predetermined rate or reaches a predetermined level. Rate-of-rise
heat detectors may be subject to reduced sensitivity over time.
For this reason, the rate-of-rise feature of each detector
should be tested at least once per year by a qualified fire protection specialist. Heat detectors are designed to protect
property, not life.
IMPORTANT! Smoke detectors must be installed in the
same room as the control panel and in rooms used by the system for the connection of alarm transmission wiring, communications, signaling, and/or power. If detectors are not so
located, a developing fire may damage the alarm system, crippling its ability to report a fire.
Audible warning devices such as bells may not alert people
if these devices are located on the other side of closed or
partly open doors or are located on another floor of a building.
Any warning device may fail to alert people with a disability or
those who have recently consumed drugs, alcohol or medication. Please note that:
•
Strobes can, under certain circumstances, cause seizures
in people with conditions such as epilepsy.
•
Studies have shown that certain people, even when they
hear a fire alarm signal, do not respond or comprehend the
meaning of the signal. It is the property owner's responsibility to conduct fire drills and other training exercise to
make people aware of fire alarm signals and instruct them
on the proper reaction to alarm signals.
•
In rare instances, the sounding of a warning device can
cause temporary or permanent hearing loss.
A fire alarm system will not operate without any electrical
power. If AC power fails, the system will operate from standby
batteries only for a specified time and only if the batteries have
been properly maintained and replaced regularly.
Equipment used in the system may not be technically compatible with the control panel. It is essential to use only equipment listed for service with your control panel.
Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a
premise to a central monitoring station may be out of service
or temporarily disabled. For added protection against telephone line failure, backup radio transmission systems are recommended.
The most common cause of fire alarm malfunction is inadequate maintenance. To keep the entire fire alarm system in
excellent working order, ongoing maintenance is required per
the manufacturer's recommendations, and UL and NFPA standards. At a minimum, the requirements of NFPA 72 shall be
followed. Environments with large amounts of dust, dirt or
high air velocity require more frequent maintenance. A maintenance agreement should be arranged through the local manufacturer's representative. Maintenance should be scheduled
monthly or as required by National and/or local fire codes and
should be performed by authorized professional fire alarm
installers only. Adequate written records of all inspections
should be kept.

Installation Precautions
Adherence to the following will aid in problem-free installation with long-term reliability:
WARNING - Several different sources of power can be
connected to the fire alarm control panel. Disconnect all
sources of power before servicing. Control unit and associated equipment may be damaged by removing and/or inserting cards, modules, or interconnecting cables while the unit is
energized. Do not attempt to install, service, or operate this
unit until manuals are read and understood.
CAUTION - System Re-acceptance Test after Software
Changes: To ensure proper system operation, this product
must be tested in accordance with NFPA 72 after any programming operation or change in site-specific software. Reacceptance testing is required after any change, addition or
deletion of system components, or after any modification,
repair or adjustment to system hardware or wiring. All components, circuits, system operations, or software functions known
to be affected by a change must be 100% tested. In addition,
to ensure that other operations are not inadvertently affected,
at least 10% of initiating devices that are not directly affected
by the change, up to a maximum of 50 devices, must also be
tested and proper system operation verified.
This system meets NFPA requirements for operation at 0-49º
C/32-120º F and at a relative humidity 93% ± 2% RH (noncondensing) at 32°C ± 2°C (90°F ± 3°F). However, the useful
life of the system's standby batteries and the electronic components may be adversely affected by extreme temperature
ranges and humidity. Therefore, it is recommended that this
system and its peripherals be installed in an environment with
a normal room temperature of 15-27º C/60-80º F.
Verify that wire sizes are adequate for all initiating and indicating device loops. Most devices cannot tolerate more than a
10% I.R. drop from the specified device voltage.
Like all solid state electronic devices, this system may
operate erratically or can be damaged when subjected to lightning induced transients. Although no system is completely
immune from lightning transients and interference, proper
grounding will reduce susceptibility. Overhead or outside aerial
wiring is not recommended, due to an increased susceptibility
to nearby lightning strikes. Consult with the Technical Services Department if any problems are anticipated or encountered.
Disconnect AC power and batteries prior to removing or
inserting circuit boards. Failure to do so can damage circuits.
Remove all electronic assemblies prior to any drilling, filing,
reaming, or punching of the enclosure. When possible, make
all cable entries from the sides or rear. Before making modifications, verify that they will not interfere with battery, transformer, or printed circuit board location.
Do not tighten screw terminals more than 9 in-lbs. Overtightening may damage threads, resulting in reduced terminal
contact pressure and difficulty with screw terminal removal.
This system contains static-sensitive components.
Always ground yourself with a proper wrist strap before handling any circuits so that static charges are removed from the
body. Use static suppressive packaging to protect electronic
assemblies removed from the unit.
Follow the instructions in the installation, operating, and programming manuals. These instructions must be followed to
avoid damage to the control panel and associated equipment.
FACP operation and reliability depend upon proper installation.

Section 1: Product Description
The MS-2 is a two zone FACP (Fire Alarm Control Panel) and the MS-4 is a four zone FACP. The
information in this manual refers to both the MS-2 and MS-4 unless otherwise specified. These
control panels provide reliable fire signaling protection for small to medium sized commercial,
industrial and institutional buildings. The FACP is compatible with System Sensor’s i3 detectors
which are microprocessor-based conventional smoke detectors that can transmit a maintenance
trouble signal to the FACP indicating the need for cleaning and a supervisory ‘freeze’ signal when
the ambient temperature falls below the detector rating (refer to System Sensor’s i3 Installation and
Maintenance Instructions document I56-1800-00 for device specifications). In addition, the control
panel is compatible with conventional input devices such as two-wire smoke detectors, four-wire
smoke detectors, pull stations, waterflow devices, tamper switches and other normally-open contact
devices. Refer to the Fire•Lite Device Compatibility Document for a complete listing of
compatible devices.
Outputs include one NAC (Notification Appliance Circuit) on the MS-2 and two NACs on the MS4. Each FACP has a Form-C Alarm and Trouble relay and 24 VDC special application resettable
power. In addition, the MS-4 has a Form-C Supervisory relay and a nonresettable special
application power output. The FACP supervises wiring, AC voltage and battery level.
Activation of a compatible smoke detector or any normally-open fire alarm initiating device will
activate audible and visual signaling devices, illuminate an indicating LED, sound the piezo
sounder at the FACP, activate the FACP alarm relay and operate an optional module used to notify
a remote station or initiate a auxiliary control function. The MS-2E and MS-4E offer the same
features as the MS-2 and MS-4 but allows connection to 220/240 VAC.
NOTE: Unless otherwise specified, the terms MS-2 and MS-4 are used in this manual to refer to
the MS-2 and MS-2E as well as the MS-4 and MS-4E FACPs respectively.

3.
During the 23 second reset/retard periods of steps 1 & 2, subsequent alarms by the same zone
are ignored.
4.
Alarms detected on any other zone during the retard period will cause the FACP to
immediately process the alarm.
5.
A 60 second confirmation period follows the reset/retard period. If an alarm occurs during the
confirmation period, on the zone which initiated verification, the FACP will immediately
process the alarm. If no alarm is detected during this confirmation period, the FACP returns to
normal condition.
Important! Circuits selected for verification must have only smoke detectors installed

The factory default setting is switches 5 and 6 OFF for No Synchronization.
 Maximum Number of Strobes for Synchronization
The total current draw for each Notification Appliance Circuit cannot exceed 2.5 amps. Refer to the
manufacturer’s documentation supplied with the strobes to determine the maximum current draw
for each strobe and ensure that the circuit maximum is not exceeded.
To ensure proper strobe and circuit operation, there is also a limit to the number of strobes that can
be attached to each circuit. Following is a list of the strobes that have been tested with this FACP
and the maximum number that can be connected to each NAC. Make sure that the NAC maximum
current is not exceeded:
 System Sensor: 40 Strobes
 Wheelock: 25 Strobes
 Gentex: 23 Strobes
Nonsilenceable Waterflow for Combination Circuit
If SW1 switch 8 is set to the ON position to select a Combination Waterflow/Supervisory Circuit
(refer to“IDC Combination Circuit” on page 36) and SW3 switch 7 is set to the ON position to
select the Nonsilenceable Waterflow for the Combination Circuit option, the following conditions
will occur:
•
MS-2 - NACs become nonsilenceable upon acitvation of IDC #1 (Combination Circuit)
•
MS-4 - NACs become nonsilenceable upon activation of IDC #2 (Combination Circuit)
Notes:
1.
If initial alarm activations are from IDCs other than the Combination Circuit, the NACs will be
either silenceable or nonsilenceable, depending on the setting of SW3 switches 1 and 3 (refer
to “NAC1 Nonsilenceable” on page 37 and “NAC2 Nonsilenceable (MS-4 only)” on page 37).
2.
If alarm activation is from the Combination Circuit programmed for nonsilenceable, all NACs
will be nonsilenceable regardless of subsequent IDC activations.
Spares
Switch 8 is a spare switch and has no function at this time. The switch should therefore be left in
the factory default setting of OFF.

Section 4: Operating Instructions
The MS-2 and MS-4 have two modes of operation which are Normal and Walktest modes. Upon
initial power-up, the system will be in Normal Mode. This section discusses operation of the
control panel in the Normal Mode.
4.1 Switch Functions in Normal Mode
4.1.1 ACK - Acknowledge
The Acknowledge button, which is located on the FACP membrane switch panel, silences the
system piezo sounder and changes all flashing system LEDs to on steady. Pressing the
Acknowledge button will have no effect on the Notification Appliance Circuits. To activate, press
and hold the Acknowledge button for a minimum of one second.
4.1.2 Silence
Pressing the Silence button, which is located on the FACP membrane switch panel, silences the
system piezo sounder, turns off the silenceable Notification Appliance Circuits and turns on the
Alarm Silence LED. The Silence button will be ignored for nonsilenceable waterflows and NACs.
Upon the occurrence of a subsequent event (alarm or trouble), Silence is overridden and the control
panel will respond to the new event. To activate, press the Silence button for a minimum of one
second.
NOTE: If Silence Inhibit has been enabled, NACs cannot be silenced for one minute following
initiation of an alarm.
4.1.3 Zone Enable/Disable
To disable a zone, press the corresponding Zone Enable/Disable button. The Zone Disable and
system Trouble LEDs will blink, as well as the Trouble LED for the disabled zone. To enable the
zone, press the Zone Enable/Disable button a second time.
4.1.4 Reset/(Lamp Test)
The system Reset button, which is located on the FACP membrane switch panel, resets the system
and any smoke detectors. Each press of the Reset button will cause the following:
 Clear all status LEDs
 Turn off the Notification Appliance Circuits
 Reset all zones by temporarily removing power
 Silence the onboard piezo sounder
 Restore all system relays to normal
 Temporarily remove power from the resettable power output
NOTE: If Silence Inhibit is active, a panel reset cannot occur for one minute.
Any alarm, supervisory or trouble condition that exists after a system reset will resound the system,
reactivating appropriate system activity. Any zones that were disabled before the reset will be
disabled after the reset.
Lamp Test When the Reset button is pressed and then released, the FACP will perform a Lamp
Test. All panel LEDs will be turned on and the piezo will sound for approximately two seconds.

MS-2 & MS-4 Series Manual — P/N 51512:G2 10/18/2011
Walktest
Operating Instructions
4.1.5 Walktest
The Walktest button, which is located on the FACP membrane switch panel, allows a panel
walktest to be performed. Pressing and holding the Walktest button for a minimum of two seconds
causes the FACP to enter audible walktest. Pressing the Walktest button and then the Silence
button and holding both for a minimum of two seconds will cause the panel to enter silent walktest.
Walktest can be exited by pressing and holding the Walktest button for a minimum of three seconds
or by pressing the Reset button. Refer to “Walktest” for a complete description of this feature.
4.2 Walktest
Walktest allows the testing of all control panel IDCs (input zones). An audible or silent walktest
may be performed.
!
WARNING: NO FIRE PROTECTION
IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT WHILE THE FACP IS IN WALKTEST MODE, THE CONTROL
PANEL IS IN AN OFF-NORMAL CONDITION AND DOES NOT PROVIDE FIRE PROTECTION.
It should also be noted that the trouble relay will be activated while the control panel is in Walktest
mode. Placing the control panel into Walktest mode will only be possible if the system has no
active alarms.
Prior to initiating a walktest, check to make certain that all system faults have been cleared.
Upon entering Walktest mode, the following conditions should occur:
•
Trouble relay will activate
•
Alarm relay will be disabled
•
Supervision relay will be disabled (MS-4 only)
•
Piezo sounder will be disabled
•
I3 smoke detectors will enter their own test mode causing their LEDs to flash twice every five
seconds (refer to the i3 specification document)
•
All alarm conditions will be displayed as they occur by blinking zone alarm LED
•
All zone troubles will be displayed as they occur by blinking zone trouble LED
During walktest, the FACP zone LEDs will blink for the first activation on a zone. Subsequent
activations on the same zone will cause the corresponding zone LED to blink the number of alarms
on the zone since the start of the test, followed by a two second pause and then a repeat of the
sequence.
Note that following a zone activation, a 6 second reset for conventional and 60 second reset for I3
detectors is initiated. No new alarms or troubles will be detected during this reset period.
Disabled zones will not respond during Walktest. A zone may be disabled while in Walktest mode,
should a faulty device be detected. This allows the user to return the system to Normal mode,
enabling all other zones while preventing the faulty zone from triggering a false alarm.
Audible Walktest
To perform an audible Walktest, press and hold the Walktest button for a minimum of two seconds.
The Trouble and Walktest LEDs will blink at a ¼ second rate.
While testing input devices, the first initiating device activated on a zone will cause the NACs to
sound for four seconds. Subsequent device activations on the same zone will cause the NACs to
turn on for one second. Any smoke detectors that are activated will automatically be reset by the
panel. Zone faults (open circuits) will cause the NACs to remain on steadily until the fault is
cleared.

Section 5: Power Supply Calculations
5.1 Overview
This section contains instructions and tables for calculating power supply currents in alarm and
standby conditions. This is a four-step process, consisting of the following:
1.
Calculating the total amount of AC branch circuit current required to operate the system
2.
Calculating the power supply load current for non-fire and fire alarm conditions and
calculating the secondary (battery) load
3.
Calculating the size of batteries required to support the system if an AC power loss occurs
4.
Selecting the proper batteries for your system
5.2 Calculating the AC Branch Circuit
The control panel requires connection to a separate, dedicated AC branch circuit, which must be
labeled FIRE ALARM. This branch circuit must connect to the line side of the main power feed
of the protected premises. No other non-fire alarm equipment may be powered from the fire alarm
branch circuit. The branch circuit wire must run continuously, without any disconnect devices,
from the power source to the control panel. Overcurrent protection for this circuit must comply
with Article 760 of the National Electrical Codes as well as local codes. Use 14 AWG (2.00 mm2)
wire with 600 volt insulation for this branch circuit.
Use Table 5.1 , to determine the total amount of current, in AC amperes (A), that must be supplied
to the system.

Power Supply Calculations
5.3 Calculating the System Current Draw
5.3.1 Overview
The control panel must be able to power all internal and external devices continuously during the
non-fire alarm condition. To calculate the non-fire alarm load on the system power supply when
primary power is applied, use Calculation Column 1 in Table 5.3 on page 48. The control panel
must support a larger load current during a fire alarm condition. To calculate the fire alarm load on
the power supply, use Calculation Column 2 in Table 5.3 on page 48. The secondary power source
(batteries) must be able to power the system during a primary power loss. To calculate the non-fire
alarm load on the secondary power source, use Calculation Column 3 in Table 5.3 on page 48.
When calculating current draw and the battery size, note the following:
•
‘Primary’ refers to the main power source for the control panel
•
‘Secondary’ refers to the control panel’s backup batteries
•
All currents are given in amperes (A). Table 5.2 shows how to convert milliamperes and
microamperes to full amperes.
To convert...
Milliamperes (mA) to
amperes (A)
Microamperes (µA) to
amperes (A)
Multiply
mA x 0.001
µA x 0.000001
Example
3 mA x 0.001 = 0.003A
300 µA x 0.000001 = 0.0003 A
Table 5.2 Converting to Full Amperes
5.3.2 How to Use Table 5.3 on page 48 to Calculate System
Current Draw
Use Table 5.3 on page 48 to calculate current draws as follows:
1.
Enter the quantity of devices in all three columns.
2.
Enter the current draw where required. Refer to the Fire-Lite Device Compatibility Document
for compatible devices and their current draw.
3.
Calculate the current draws for each in all columns.
4.
Sum the total current for each column.
5.
Copy the totals from Column 2 and Column 3 to Table 5.4 on page 49.
Following are the types of current that can be entered into Table 5.3 on page 48:
 Calculation Column 1 - The primary supply current load that the control panel must
support during a non-fire alarm condition, with AC power applied.
 Calculation Column 2 - The primary supply current load that the control panel must
support during a fire alarm condition, with AC power applied.
 Calculation Column 3 - The standby current drawn from the batteries in a non-fire alarm
condition during a loss of AC power.
