1. FIRE ALARM CONTROL PANEL SAFETY ISSUES
There is no need to open this fire alarm during normal operation. Any work carried out on this system must be
performed by a competent person who is familiar with this type of system.
This equipment will operate safely provided it has been installed correctly in compliance with the Installation
Manual.
It is recommended that the system is serviced frequently. It is customary to arrange a regular maintenance
contract with a competent organisation. (Ask the installation company for recommendations). The system
needs a thorough maintenance check annually at the very minimum.
If any part of this Fire Alarm Control Panel becomes damaged, contact the company responsible for system
maintenance to arrange repair / replacement.
CE
European Union Directives Conformance Statement
This product has been manufactured in conformance with the requirements of all
applicable EU Council Directives. The Declaration of Conformance for this
product is located at the following Address: GLT Exports Ltd, 72-78 Morfa Road,
Hafod, Swansea, SA1 2EN, United Kingdom
2. THE PURPOSE OF A FIRE ALARM SYSTEM
A Fire Alarm System is used to provide an early warning of a fire, so that the property can be evacuated and
the fire extinguished if it can be safely tackled, or the local fire brigade called, according to the company
evacuation procedure.
Alarms can come from Smoke or Heat Detectors, or manually be a person operating a Manual Call Point.
Split the system into Zones, each covering a different area of a building. This will indicate which area of the
system is giving the alarm (or fault).
During an alarm, the panel will start its sounders, and indicate which zone has the fire. It will also activate its
auxiliary relay.
Fault Monitoring
All circuits must be checked for line integrity. If a part of the system has a problem which may affect its
operation, a fault warning must be given by the fire alarm panel (LED & buzzer indication). The fault relay will
also activate.
Disablements
An engineer may be required to work on part of a system, while the system is still active (e.g. extending a
detection zone). During such circumstances, it would be advisable to disable that zone, so that it will not give
false alarms. Similarly you may wish to disable a zone that has a fault that has not been fixed, or a zone
covering an area with a temporary unusual environment, such as an area which is dusty because of
construction work etc.
Delays
In public places, it may be desirable to delay the activation of an alarm until the responsible person has verified
the cause of the alarm. (This would avoid a panic evacuation caused by a smoky room, or a maliciously
activated call point.) On verification of the alarm, the sounders can be started by pressing the override button,
or the panel can be reset in the case of a false alarm. If a delay has been set, it must be recorded on the
system configuration chart at the back of this manual.
Power Supply Equipment- General Description.
The INFINITY 8 FACP has an integral linear power supply capable of supplying 1.2 amps in total. It contains a
current limited output for charging sealed lead acid batteries (3.4 Ah maximum). The PSE is monitored for main
supply failure, the battery not taking a charge, low battery voltage and resistance. If the battery voltage drops
below approximately 20VDC (a fault condition), the battery charging current will be turned off, thus stopping
charging. This PSE is only capable of supplying power to the CIE, and is not designed for any other use.

3. USER RESPONSIBILITIES & MAINTAINENCE OF THE FIRE ALARM SYSTEM,
INCLUDING THE FACP & ITS INTEGRAL PSE
According to the British Standard Code for Fire Detection and Alarm Systems for Commercial Buildings
(BS5839: Pt 1: 2013), the owner or person having control of the premises should appoint a responsible person
to oversee the effective operation of the Fire Alarm System (Clause 47.1).
Below is a summary of the main functions the “Responsible Person” is expected to carry out. This summary is
not intended to replace Section seven (User responsibilities) of BS5839: Pt 1: 2013 (available from BSI, or your
local library). It is meant to give a brief outline of user responsibilities for the safe upkeep of the Fire Alarm
System. The number in brackets shows the relevant BS5839: Pt 1: 2013 clauses.
The responsible person must:1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Have sufficient authority to carry out the duties associated with being the responsible person (47.2.)
Check the system at least once every 24 hours to ensure there are no faults present (47.2.a)
Ensure there are arrangements for testing and maintaining the system (47.2.b)
Ensure the log book is up to date, and available for inspection (47.2.c)
Instruct all relevant occupants on the basic operation of the system, including start evacuation, silence
alarms, silence faults and system reset (47.2.d)
6. Take appropriate action to limit the rate of false alarms (47.2.e)
7. Ensure that all detectors and manual call points remain unobstructed at all times (47.2.f)
8. Liaise with maintenance personnel to ensure that cleaning, maintenance or building work does not
interfere with the functioning and reliability of the fire alarm system (47.2.g).
9. Ensure any changes to the system are recorded with updated drawings, operating instructions etc (47.2.i)
10. Ensure that there are spare parts (especially Call point elements) held on site (47.2h)
With the Infinity 8 Range of Fire Alarm Panels, we recommend the following tests are carried out: Daily Inspection
• Check that the green Power LED is lit.
• If there are any yellow fault LEDs lit, or the green Power LED is not lit, report the fault(s) to the designated
site maintenance engineer.
Weekly Test (you may wish to temporarily disconnect the Aux relay during the following Tests)
• Set off a manual call point or sensor to test the Fire Alarm panel responds and all the sounders activate.
• Do not test the same device each week. Test a different zone each week using a different call point or
detector so that eventually, all the devices will be tested.
• Reset the System by pressing (Stop sounders, Silence fault tone, Reset).
• Enter access code. Press the LED Test button. Check that all LEDs light, and the buzzer sounds
• Check that no call points or fire detectors are obstructed in any way. (e.g. New furniture or decorations)
Quarterly Test (to be carried out by authorised service personnel only)
• Check that any servicing or repairs required by all previous logbook entries has been undertaken.
• Visual inspection of the batteries and connections. Check the alarm sounders work on battery only.
• Activate a device from each zone to test the fire alarm. (As per weekly test).
Annual Test (to be carried out by authorised service personnel only)
•
Check every detector, call point, sounder and all auxiliary equipment for correct operation.
•
Check Cage output Voltage (30VDC), Charger Voltage (27.6Vnormal and 29.4V fast charge) & Battery
Voltage (25-27V)
Every Five Years (to be carried out by authorised service personnel only)
• Carry out a complete wiring check in accordance with the testing and inspection requirements of the
relevant National wiring regulations (in the UK this is the IEE Wiring Regulations). The Batteries should be
replaced because SLA batteries have a working life of 5 years.

5. THE FIRE CONDITION
5.1 HOW THE INFINITY 8 INDICATES AN ALARM
When the Infinity 8 Fire Alarm Panel is set into alarm by a Detector or Manual Call Point located in a zone that is
not already in alarm it will: -
•
•
•
Light the General Fire LED and appropriate Zone Fire LED(s) on the front of its enclosure
Sound Internal buzzer
Start the Alarm Sounder and Auxiliary output, (provided there is no Delay set on the sounders).
The building evacuation procedure should now be followed.
IMPORTANT NOTE: If a zone has been disabled, it cannot be triggered into Alarm. This should be
remembered when disabling part of the system. (See Disabling zones or sounders later in this manual).
5.2 TO TURN OFF THE ALARM SOUNDERS
•
The Alarm Sounders may be silenced by entering the access code (section 4.2) and momentarily pressing
the
button.
The Alarm Sounders will cease to sound but the light(s) for the Zone(s) in Alarm and the red General Fire light will
stay lit. The Auxiliary Fire relay will remain active. (The Panels internal buzzer can also be silenced by pressing
the
button.
5.3 A SECOND ALARM SIGNAL FROM A NEW DETECTION ZONE
If another detection Zone is activated after the Alarm Sounders have been silenced, the panel will: -
•
•
•
Restart the sounders
Light the Zone Fire LED(s) for any new Zone(s) in alarm
Keep the light(s) for the previous Zone(s) in fire, and General Fire lit.
5.4 TURNING ON THE ALARM SOUNDERS FROM THE FACP (I.E. TO EVACUATE THE
BUILDING).
•
Enter code and press
Pressing the
, momentarily pressing the

•
•
Check the cause of the alarm activation. If the cause of the alarm was an activated call point, reset it (if
resettable type), or fit a new glass element (if glass type). If the cause of the alarm was by detector activation
(e.g. cooking smoke), the smoke will have to be cleared from the room before the panel can be reset. Reset
the panel by pressing the
after the sounders and panel buzzer have been silenced.
If the call point is still active, or the detector is still smoky, this will cause another alarm straight after the
panel is reset, so will set off alarm bells again.
6. THE FAULT CONDITION
6.1 DIFFERENT TYPES OF FAULT
The fire alarm monitors itself, and any equipment connected to it, for any faults that can occur. If a fault occurs, the Panel
responds by activating its Internal buzzer and lighting the General Fault light and any other Fault light(s) relevant to the
particular fault. The Panel’s Fault relay will also activate. Typical faults are described below: -
General Fault
The General Fault LED is a common indicator that flashes
when there is a Fault on any part of the Fire Alarm Systems.
It is usually lit in tandem with at least one other fault light
which conveys more precise information on the type of
Fault detected.
Zone Fault
The relevant Zone Fault light flashes when there is a
wiring problem on a Zone or detector has been removed from
its base. It should be noted that any alarms raised on the
fault zone(s) may not be recognised by the Fire Alarm Panel
until the Fault Conditions have been cleared. It can take up to
60 seconds from repairing a fault for the display to clear.
Short Circuit Fault
If the Fault is a short circuit fault, then the S/C LED will be flashing.
This S/C LED will be flashing for S/C faults on the zone
and sounder circuits. It can take up to 60 seconds from repairing
a fault for the display to clear.
Power Supply Fault
The Power supply Fault light flashes when the Mains supply
has failed or the standby batteries or its charger is faulty. If
the mains supply fails, the panel will only operate for the
standby period dictated by the size of the batteries fitted. If
the batteries or charger fails at the same time as the Mains,
the Panel will be inoperative.

System Fault
The System Fault LED and Gen fault lights when the Panel’s
micro-processor has Reset, typically after excessive electrical
interference, or if the contents of its memory have been corrupted.
is will result in the panel attempting to correct itself. Should this
fault occur, the System Fault LED, General Fault LED, General
Fault relay and fault internal buzzer will be constantly active. If
the fault re-occurs within two minutes, this is indicative of a
corrupt memory and expert advice should be sought.
Earth Fault
The Earth Fault light is constant when the panel detects an earth
fault (short circuit to earth) on the wiring to any part of the
control panel.
Sounder Fault
The Sounder status light flashes when there is a wiring fault
on the Sounder Circuits. Depending on where the fault
has occurred, one or all of the Alarm Sounders may no longer
be operative. If the fault is a short circuit fault, then the S/C LED will
also be flashing.
6.2 WHAT TO DO IF A FAULT CONDITION OCCURS
If a fault occurs, the responsible person should:
•
•
Enter the access code and press
to enabled controls and press
to silence the fault buzzer.
Write down the fault (s) in the Log Book at the back of this Manual. Take appropriate action to correct the fault
(Usually by contacting the service engineer)
On the Infinity 8 panel, the fault indications (except system fault) are non latching. That is, when the fault has been
cleared, the fault indication will turn off. When all faults have been cleared, the panel will return to its quiescent (normal)
condition.
When a fault has been rectified the indicator light for that Fault is automatically turned off. If all Faults are cleared, the
General Fault light will go out and the Panel’s Internal Sounder will be silent (if not already muted).

7. DISABLEMENTS
7.1 REASONS FOR DISABLING CERTAIN PARTS OF A FIRE ALARM SYSTEM.
Certain parts of this Fire Alarm Panel can be temporarily disabled (i.e. switched off) to suit prevailing conditions. For
example, if there is a risk of a False Alarm in a zone, for example, from vehicle exhaust smoke in a loading bay, it is
possible for the user to disable that zone during the risk period and then enable it again afterwards. During a disablement
of a zone(s), no fire or fault signal will be processed for that zone(s). Only zone(s) in a non-alarm state can be disabled,
that is zones already in fire cannot be disabled.
External sounders can also be disabled as could be required in certain conditions.
7.2 TO DISABLE A ZONE AND/OR EXTERNAL SOUNDERS.
1.
Enter the access code (default 1245) and press
2.
Hold the Disable

8. USING SOUNDER DELAYS
8.1 WHAT IS A SOUNDER DELAY
In certain circumstances it may be desirable to have a delay between the panel detecting a fire, and starting its external
sounders, to allow the responsible person to check the cause of the alarm, to stop building evacuation by an obvious false
alarm. If the cause of the Alarm is found to be a true fire hazard, the Delay can be overridden and the Alarm Sounders
activated immediately. Alternatively, in the case of a false alarm, the Panel can be reset.
8.2 SOUNDER DELAY SETTING
On the Infinity 8 panel, the sounder delay can be programmed on zones 2 – 8 (zone 1 cannot have a delay). That is, all
zones will be delayed by the same amount. The delay can be set between 1 minute and 10 minutes, or the delay can be
left off (sounders activate immediately). Changing the delay time should only be done by the engineer responsible for
setting up the system. But turning the delay on or off can be done by the user.
Activate/Deactivate Sounder delay
•
Enter Access code (default 1245)
•
Press
button
•
Press
button again to deactivate sounder delay
8.3 HOW THE PANEL INDICATES SOUNDER DELAY
If a Delay has been programmed into the Panel, the General Disablement & DEL(AY) LEDs will be lit. When a zone
processes an alarm signal, the panel will indicate fire in the usual way, but the sounders will not be active until the delay
period has expired. To override this delay, press Delay Override Switch, which will cause the external sounders to
energise. If there is no delay programmed, the Delay Override Switch has no function.
8.4 A FIRE ALARM CONDITION ON A DELAYED PANEL
When an alarm occurs on a Delayed Panel, the panel will: -
•
Light its General Fire and appropriate Fire Zone light(s)
•
Sound its Internal buzzer
•
Start the Delay countdown sequence
•
Wait until the end of the delay, and then start the sounders.
8.5 OVERRIDING A DELAY IN THE EVENT OF A GENUINE FIRE ALARM
If on investigation the cause of the Alarm is found to be a true fire hazard, pressing the
Sounders and Outputs with immediate effect.
, will active the Alarm
8.6 RESET THE SYSTEM IN THE EVENT OF A FALSE ALARM
If, on investigation, the cause of the Alarm is found to be false, enter the access code and press
button.
8.7 TO TURN OFF THE SOUNDER DELAY
1
Enter access code 1245
2
Press Sounder Delay

9 ZONE TEST
9.1 Why use Zone Test
To aid commissioning and assist routine maintenance checks, a non-latching ‘One Man Test’ facility is available.
When a detector or manual call point is triggered on any zone in test, the alarm sounders operate for approximately 5
seconds on and 5 seconds off. This cycle continues until the cause of the alarm is removed (either by the test smoke
clearing from the detector or the manual call point being reset), At which point, the detector circuit is automatically rest.
Should an alarm occur on a zone that is not programmed to test, the alarm will be processed in the normal way. The
testing of the zone in test will temporarily be suspended until the alarm(s) from the other zones are reset.
The panel has been designed so it cannot be left in test mode if the user needs to access another function (e.g. disable).
9.2 TO PROGRAMME ZONE IN TEST
1
Enter access code and press
2
Hold
3
Select the zone you want to go in test mode by typing the number with the keypad
4
Press
to start test mode
5
Press
again to stop test mode
6
To leave test mode hold
button for 3 seconds
button for 3 seconds
9.3 NOTES ON TEST MODE
Test mode provides a way to test a system without indicating there is a fire (as the sounders turn off after about 4
seconds). While extremely useful during system testing, careless use of test mode could be dangerous if a real fire
occurs in an area under test.
In order to limit the misuse of test mode, the infinity panel uses the following methods:1.
2.
3.
Only one zone at a time can be put into test mode, leaving up to 7 zones fully functional and able to report a
fire.
It is not possible to leave the panel in test mode while performing other panel functions, such as disablement.
It is not possible to leave a zone in test mode. If the panel is left in test mode, it will time out after a period of
inactivity
