System service procedures
Recommended maintenance practices
Electrical safeguards
Personal safety
WARNING: Disconnect ac power to the control panel before
installing or removing any components. Failure to remove ac
power may result in serious injury or loss of life.
Follow the recommendations for the routing of power-limited
and nonpower-limited wiring to avoid dangerous confusion of
wire types. See the wallbox installation sheets for the details.
Electro-static precautions
The components of the fire alarm control panel are extremely
sensitive to small amounts of static electricity. Make sure you
are properly grounded before you handle any module. Provide a
static-free storage environment for any module you remove from
the control panel.
Wire stripping
Strip 1/4 inch (6.4 mm) from the ends of all wires that connect to
the terminal blocks of the module. Exposing more than 1/4 inch
of wire may cause a ground fault. Exposing less than 1/4 inch of
wire may result in a faulty connection. Observe the wire
stripping whenever you perform maintenance on the system or
troubleshoot a problem.
Preventive maintenance
There are two standards you need to follow for preventive
maintenance. NFPA 72 (1996 edition) provides guidance for
inspection, testing, and maintenance in Chapter 7. The other
standard to follow is the authority having jurisdiction for your
municipality.
Documenting system service
Document your maintenance activities and any problems that
arise on the system. The more documentation you have, the
easier it is to track problems on the system. See, Documenting
system service, at the end of this chapter for a sample
maintenance log. Photocopy the sample and use it for system
maintenance activities.
Use the Reports menu in the 2-SDU to generate and print reports
on the configuration of the system for any changes. When

problems arise on the system, you will have a reliable record for
comparison.

System faults
Reading 2-LCD messages
The standalone system provides valuable data to help the
technician find and correct problems. Whenever a problem
arises, the 2-LCD indicates both audibly and visually that
something is wrong. See the System Operations Manual for
detailed information on the LED indications of the 2-LCD.
The 2-LCD also displays fault messages to locate and identify
the problem. Each fault message consists of a 4-digit address.
The first two digits represent the panel address. If the panel
address is 00, the last two digits will be pseudo-point IDs (01
through 99). If the panel address is 01 through 63, the last two
digits will represent the device address (01 through 96). Table
4-1 lists the system addresses. All devices and accessories
connected to the RS-485 circuit have four-digit addresses
between 10xx and 63xx.

Checking LEDs on the 2-LCD
The 2-LCD also indicates problems with LEDs and an internal
buzzer. The internal buzzer provides an audible indication that
the system has a problem. Table 4-3 lists the LEDs to look for
when the internal buzzer sounds.
Table 4-3: System fault messages
Fault
Possible Causes
AC Power LED off
The ac power is off or below 85% of the rated voltage.
TROUBLE LED on
The system has detected a problem with the wiring or a device on the
loop. Check the display for more details and look for other lit LEDs.
CPU FAIL LED on
• 2-MCM CPU watch-dog time-out
• LED/Switch module CPU watch-dog time-out
All LEDs off
The system has had an ac power failure and the batteries below
minimum allowable voltage
Another way of finding problems is to look for improper device
responses. For example, the disable function fails to disable the
desired Signature device or disables another one. An improper
device response may result from any of the following conditions:
•
•
•
•
•
Conflicting device types
Conflicting serial numbers
An incorrect personality code loaded into a module
Incorrect country code
An incorrect jumper setting on a Signature series universal
module (SIGA-UM)
Check the devices by looking at their LEDs and comparing their
serial numbers with the ones configured in the 2-SDU.
Checking system status
A level 1, 2, or 3 password is required to use the 2-LCD status
function. Press the STATUS switch to access the first status

Cleaning detectors
Signature series detectors require periodic cleaning to ensure
reliable performance. The Detector Cleaning Tool, with a
conventional vacuum cleaner, provides the means for cleaning
the detectors. The tool creates a high velocity vortex scrubbing
action around the detector to remove loose dust and debris.
Caution: Disable the detector before you clean it to avoid false
alarms.
To clean a Signature series detector:
1. At the 2-LCD, disable the detector to prevent false alarms.
2. Vacuum cobwebs and other loose objects from the
immediate area of the detector.
3. Install the Detector Cleaning Tool on the vacuum hose
(Figure 4-11).
4. Place the Detector Cleaning Tool over the detector head for
approximately 1 minute.
5. When the detector is clean, restore it to proper operation.
6. At the 2-LCD, check the detector’s sensitivity to verify that
it is clean.
Note: See the System Operations Manual for instructions on
checking detectors sensitivity level.

Isolating trouble conditions
Isolating device faults
Methods for isolating Signature device faults differ according to
the problem. Still, some tools may prove helpful in many
situations. An accurate and complete wiring diagram of the
Signature data circuit (SDC) will prove useful in all
circumstances. The 2-SDU features a mapping tool, which
provides valuable information about the condition of each circuit
and its devices. You can read about the mapping tool in the
2-SDU help. Your own documentation is another useful tool.
Document your maintenance activities and make the records
available. If you know the last thing that happened to a device or
the system, you may not have to spend a lot of time isolating a
problem.
Isolating open circuits
The most common electrical problems with fire alarm systems
are open circuits, short circuits, and ground faults (Figure 5-2).
An open circuit disrupts communications on the SDC.
Consequently, the 2-LCD will report an open circuit as a
communications fault (Figure 5-1).

Figure 5-2: SDC problems
To isolate an open circuit:
1. Read the fault message at the 2-LCD to find out which
devices are not communicating.
2. If your company has a maintenance log, check it for any
work recently performed on or around the suspect device.
3. Go to the device and examine it for the potential problems of
an open condition.
4. Check the device's LEDs for communications activity.
EST2 Installation and Service Manual
5.3
Isolating trouble conditions
5. Check the serial number of the device against the serial
number entered in the Serial Number Log Book.
6. Check the 2-SDU for other programming information about
the device to see if it matches the one in trouble.
Isolating short circuits
The 2-LCD reports a short circuit as a device/line fault because it
may arise from a problem with the line or the device (Figure
5-3).

Figure 5-3: 2-LCD message for a short circuit
The 2-LCD also reports communications faults for every device
on the SDC. Listen for the constant clicking of a relay on the
primary power supply, which frequently accompanies a short
circuit.
Isolating a short circuit requires more patience than isolating an
open circuit. The 2-LCD provides indications of a short circuit,
but you may have to isolate portions of the circuit to find the
cause.
To isolate a short circuit:
1. Look for a device/line fault and several communication
faults on the 2-LCD.
2. Listen for a clicking relay at the Primary Power Supply.
3. If your company has a maintenance log, check it for any
work recently performed on or around the suspect device.
4. Isolate portions of the SDC to locate the cause (Figure 5-4).
5. Investigate the problem area for potential wiring or device
faults.

A ground fault occurs when a device or a line has more than one
ground reference. The 2-LCD indicates a ground fault condition
for the system and communication faults for every device on the
affected SDC (Figure 5-5).

As with short circuits, the cause of a ground fault may prove
elusive. The isolation procedure for short circuits also applies to
ground faults.
EST2 Installation and Service Manual

Isolating trouble conditions
To isolate a ground fault:
1. Look for a ground fault and several communication faults on
the 2-LCD.
3. If your company has a maintenance log, check it for any
work recently performed on or around the suspect device.
4. Isolate portions of the SDC to locate the cause (Figure 5-4).
5. Investigate the problem area for potential wiring or device
faults.

Incorrect response
A detector may exhibit an incorrect response for the following
reasons:
•
•
•
Incorrect detector address
Detector not in database
Incorrect programming of device responses
Trouble condition
A detector may cause a trouble condition for the following
reasons:
•
•
•
•
Missing or incorrectly wired
Not in the database
Ground fault
Internal fault
Nuisance alarms
A detector may cause nuisance alarms or active conditions under
the following conditions:
•
•
•
Extremely high airflow*
High ambient smoke
Defective detector
*High airflow affects ionization detectors.

Modules
Incorrect response
A module may exhibit an incorrect response for the following
reasons:
•
•
•
•
•
Wrong location
Incorrect address
Missing from the database
Wrong personality code
Ground fault on the SDC or negative side of the input/output
Incorrect module responses may also originate from issues
specific to personality codes. For example, modules with:
•
Personality codes 1, 2, 3, 4, 8, 13, 14, 16, and 18 will not
accept a personality code other than zero (0) for an unused
module address.
•
Personality code 8 will cause problems for the wrong setting
of setting of the jumper on dual channel modules.
•
Personality codes 13, 14, 18, 20, and 21 will have problems
if 24 Vdc for smoke power low or missing.
•
Personality codes 1, 2, 3, and 4 will have problems if inputs
1 and 2 are swapped.
•
Personality code 7 will fail if signal sources 1 and 2 are
swapped.
Trouble condition
A module may cause a trouble condition on the host controller
under the following circumstances
•
•
•
•
•
•
Wrong location
Incorrect address
Missing from the database
Ground fault on the SDC or negative side of the input/output
Output circuit open, short, or incorrectly wired
Polarized device installed in reverse
Note: An incorrect or missing EOL will also cause modules with
personality codes 1, 2, 3, 4, 7, 13, 14, 16, 18, 20, and 21 to
indicate a trouble condition to the host controller.

Figure 5-6: 2-LCD message for a mapping error
To isolate a mapping error:
1. Read the mapping error message on the 2-LCD to determine
which loop and device has the mapping error.
2. Check the maintenance log for any work recently performed
on the device or panel.
3. Go to the suspect device and examine it for the potential
problems of a mapping error.
4. Check the device's LEDs for communications activity.
5. Check the serial number of the device against the serial
number entered in the Serial Number Log Book.
6. Check the 2-SDU for other programming information about
the device to see if it matches the one in trouble.

Calculations
Calculating wire lengths for Signature data circuits
Circuit resistance and capacitance determines the maximum
length of a Signature data circuit. Circuit resistance affects the
wire length of the longest circuit branch. Circuit capacitance
affects the total amount of wire that can be used on the circuit.
Notes
The design of the Signature data circuit must not exceed either
of the two measurements.
There are no restrictions placed on the wiring used for the
Signature data circuit. Longer wire runs may be obtained using
standard (non-twisted, non-shielded) wire pairs.
Determining the maximum allowable branch
length
The maximum branch length is the wire distance measured from
the Signature controller module to the last device on the longest
circuit path as shown below.

[WIRECALC2.CDR]
Several factors influence the maximum allowable branch length:
•
Wire gauge and type
•
Number of Signature detectors and modules installed on the
branch
•
Number of SIGA-UMs configured for 2-wire smoke
detectors installed on the branch
Table B-1 through Table B-4 provide the maximum allowable
branch length for any detector, module, SIGA-UM, and wire
gauge combination. Using the wire distances specified in the
tables ensures that the circuit does not exceed the maximum
circuit resistance of the Signature data circuit.
B.2
EST2 Installation and Service Manual
Calculations
Note: To calculate the wire distance with respect to circuit
resistance, the tables assume that the circuit is end-loaded (all
devices are clustered more towards the end of the circuit) and
the circuit uses standard, non-shielded wire.
To determine the maximum allowable length of a Signature
data circuit branch:
1. Identify the device located farthest from the Signature
controller.
2. Determine the number of Signature detectors, modules, and
SIGA-UMs configured for 2-wire smokes that lie on the
same conductive path between the device identified in step 1
and the Signature controller.
3. Calculate the number of detector and module addresses.
Some Signature modules require two addresses.
4. Determine the size of the wire used to construct the circuit.
5. Find the maximum allowable wire distance for the longest
branch in the lookup tables as follows:
If no SIGA-UMs are installed, use Table B-1.
If 1–5 SIGA-UMs are installed, use Table B-2.
If 6–10 SIGA-UMs are installed, use Table B-3.
If 11–15 SIGA-UMs are installed, use Table B-4.

Calculating wire lengths for 25 or 70 Vrms NACs
The maximum allowable wire length is the greatest distance
from the amplifier to the last speaker on the NAC. The wire pair
must have no more than 0.5 dB loss over its entire length.
Calculating the maximum allowable wire length using this
method ensures that each speaker operates at its full potential.
Several factors influence the maximum allowable wire length:
•
•
•
Wire size
Output signal level of the amplifier driving the circuit
Number of speakers installed on the circuit
To calculate the maximum allowable wire length for a 0.5 dB
loss, use the following formula:
Max length =
59.25 X Amplifier output 2
Wire resistance X Circuit load
where:
•
Amplifier output is the signal level in Vrms supplied by the
amplifier driving the circuit
•
Circuit load is the total watts required by the audio circuit
•
Wire resistance is the resistance rating of the wire per 1000
ft pair (See Table B-5.)
For example, the maximum allowable wire length for an audio
circuit consisting of one 40-Watt (25 Vrms) amplifier, thirty 1Watt speakers, and 18-gauge wire equals 95 feet.
94.95 =
59.25 X 25
13 X 30

Use Table B-7 for amplifiers set for 25 Vrms output. Use Table
B-8 for amplifiers set for a 70 Vrms output.

Calculating ampere-hour battery requirements
Use the following method to calculate the minimum amperehour capacity of a battery required for the operation of a panel in
the absence of ac power. Perform battery calculations separately
for each cabinet in the system.
To calculate the ampere-hour capacity:
1. Determine the total amount of current in milliamps required
by all of the components that derive power from the battery
while the panel is in standby mode.
2. Multiply the total amount of standby current by the number
of hours that the panel is required to operate in standby
mode while on battery power.
3. Determine the total amount of current in milliamps required
by all of the components that derive power from the battery
while the panel is in alarm mode.
4. Multiply the total amount of alarm current by the number of
minutes that the panel is required to operate in alarm mode
while on battery power.
5. Divide the result by 60 to convert minutes to hours.
6. Add the total amount of standby current and the total
amount of alarm current then divide the result by 1000 to
convert to ampere-hours.
7. Multiply this number by 1.2 to add a 20% safety factor to
the calculations.
