IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTES
The panel is safe to operate provided it has been installed in compliance with the manufacturer’s
instructions and used in accordance with this manual.
Hazardous voltages are present inside the panel - DO NOT open it unless you are qualified and
authorised to do so. There is no need to open the panel’s enclosure except to carry out commissioning,
maintenance and remedial work. This work must only be carried out by competent service personnel who
are fully conversant with the contents of the panel’s separate engineering manual and have the
necessary skills for maintaining this equipment.
If the enclosure is damaged in any way, expert advice should be sought regarding its repair.
Regular servicing of the fire alarm system is highly recommended, preferably on a continuous
maintenance contract and by a competent organisation. A fully-itemised report of the installation should
be obtained at least annually.
Disclaimer
No responsibility can be accepted by the manufacturer or distributors of this fire alarm panel for any

XFP NETWORKABLE ANALOGUE ADDRESSABLE FIRE ALARM PANEL
INTRODUCTION
Fire alarm systems - an overview
The primary purpose of a fire alarm system is to provide an early warning of a fire so that people and
animals can be evacuated and action taken to stop the fire as soon as possible - all according to a
predetermined plan.
Alarms may be raised automatically, by smoke or heat detectors, or manually by a person operating a
manual call point.
To ensure an alarm is dealt with in an orderly manner, it is important to know where the alarm is
coming from. To aid this function, fire alarm systems are usually split into zones, each covering a
different area of a building.
When an alarm has been raised, the panel responds by indicating the zone(s) in which the alarm has
occurred and activating all relevant outputs (sounders, bells, strobes, beacons, relays, etc.) to provide
a warning of the fire.
The XFP fire alarm control panel
The XFP is an intelligent ‘addressable’ fire alarm panel designed to work with a wide range of
intelligent fire detection devices. As such, it is able to provide much more detailed information about
a fire condition than just the number of the activated zone.
As well as giving prioritised feedback on the status of the system, its easy-to-read 80-character display
will indicate the name and location of every detector that has responded to a fire and also show the
order in which they went into alarm.
It will also display detailed information on any pre-alarm and/or fault conditions that arise and can be
programmed to operate in a number of different ways to help reduce the incidence of false alarms
and to encourage the orderly evacuation of a building in a true fire condition.
Controls are available that will allow authorised users to silence or reset a fire condition, to disable or
enable parts of the system to suit prevailing conditions, to change the time the system enters day
(building occupied) and night (building unoccupied) mode and to test the panel’s indicators and liquid
crystal display to ensure they are working correctly.
All of these functions - and more - are explained in detail in this user manual.
An overview of the panel’s access levels
Three access levels are available at the panel - access level 1 (general user), access level 2 (authorised
user) and access level 3 (engineer).
Access level 1 is the normal user level which is accessible to everyone. At this level you can:
•
•
•
•
•
Scroll through any fire, pre-alarm and fault conditions that are displayed on the panel’s display
View any disablements or zones that are being tested (if applicable)
Test the panel’s lamps (its LED indicators and display) to ensure they are working correctly
Determine the total number of times the panel has been in a fire condition
Gain entry to access level 2 (authorised user level) and, if you are an engineer, access level 3.
Access level 2 is the authorised user level which is available to authorised, trained personnel only.
Access to this level is achieved by either, the input of a special four-digit code using the panel’s
pushbuttons, or by turning the panel’s keyswitch to the armed position (I).
At access level 2, the panel’s Silence, Reset and Investigate buttons become active and users are able to:
•
•
•
•
•
•
Scroll through any fire, pre-alarm or fault conditions that are displayed on the panel’s display
View any disablements or zones that are being tested (if applicable)
Enable or disable zones, sounders, outputs, relays and devices (as appropriate)
Print, display and/or reset the panel’s event history
Set the time and date
Change the entry code to access level 2 from its factory default.
Access level 3 is the panel’s engineering/programming level. On no account should access level 3 be
accessed by anyone but an authorised system engineer. A fire panel is a piece of life safety equipment and
unauthorised access may affect the way the panel functions, endanger life and void its warranty. If you
are an authorised engineer, details of access level 3 can be found in the separate Engineering manual.

USER RESPONSIBILITIES
BS5839-1 is the British Standard code of practice for the design, installation, commissioning and
maintenance of fire detection and fire alarm systems for buildings. Section 7 of the standard (User
Responsibilities) states that a named responsible person should be appointed to supervise all matters
pertaining to the fire alarm system {clause 47.2a}.
Highlighted below is a summary of the main functions the responsible person is expected to carry out
with regard to BS5839-1 only. It does not highlight any other responsibilities that may be required of
the user or responsible person that are listed in documentation such as the Employers Guide to Fire
Safety, the Fire Precautions (Workplace) regulations and/or any other legislation relevant to the
premises. If in doubt, the fire authority can advise on the fire legislation that applies to any given
building. For countries outside the UK, different user responsibilities may apply.
BS5839-1 states the responsible person should:
(The bracketed numbers {xx} identify the BS5839-1 clauses to which the summary refers.)
1 Ensure the fire alarm panel is checked daily to confirm there are no faults on the system {47.2b}
2 Ensure arrangements are in place for the test, maintenance and regular servicing of the system with
regard to Section 6 of the standard {47.2c}. Important: Clause 44 of BS5839-1 recommends weekly and
monthly tests that should be carried out by the responsible person. See below for details.
3 Ensure the Fire Alarm Log Book is kept up to date by recording fire signals, fault signals, work on the
system, etc., and make sure it is available for inspection at all times {47.2d / 48}
4 Ensure all relevant occupants of the premises are instructed in the proper use of the system {47.2e}
5 Take steps to limit the number of false alarms on the system {47f}
6 Ensure the effectiveness of the system is not impaired by ensuring there is a space of at least 500mm in all
directions around and below every fire detector and that all manual call points are unobstructed and easy
to see {47g}
7 Liaise with all relevant building engineers, decorators, etc., to ensure any changes to (or maintenance of),
the building’s fabric does not compromise the protection given by the fire alarm system, create faults or false
alarms {47h}
8 Ensure that any structural or occupancy changes planned for the building are done so with due and early
consideration given to any changes that may be required to the fire system {47h}
9 Ensure that a selection of spare parts are held as appropriate within the premises {47j}
Routine weekly and monthly testing to be undertaken by the user/responsible person
To meet the requirements of Clause 44 of BS5839-1 we recommend the following tests are carried out at
approximately the same time each week, during normal working hours:
Note: It is essential any alarm receiving centre is contacted before and after these tests to avoid unwanted
alarms and to confirm the fire signal is correctly received.
• Carry out an Indicator lamp test to check all zone lights show and the beeper sounds.
• Operate a manual call point or smoke/heat detector to test the fire alarm.
• Check that the alarm sounders operate.
• Reset the system by pressing the Silence/Resound Sounders button and Control Panel Reset button.
• Verify that no manual call points or smoke/heat detectors are obstructed in any way.
• Test a different zone each week using a different call point or detector so all are tested in rotation.
Monthly attention: Ensure authorised service personnel verify the system’s standby power supply (or supplies)
are in good working order.
Quarterly and periodic inspection, testing, servicing and maintenance
It is the user’s responsibility to ensure that an ongoing periodic plan is in place that meets Clause 45
(Inspection and Maintenance) of BS5839-1. The work required to meet this Clause must be carried out by a
competent person with specialist knowledge of fire detection and alarm systems. The standard recognises
this will normally be an outside specialist fire alarm servicing organisation.
Please note: the above summaries do not replace Sections 6 and 7 of BS5839-1 but are intended to help the user gain a greater understanding
of his or her responsibilities. We strongly recommend the named responsible person familiarises themselves with the full standard, copies of
which are available from your local reference library or can be purchased from the British Standards Institute, Customer Services Dept., 389

GENERAL USER OPERATION
(MESSAGES THAT MAY APPEAR ON THE PANEL’S DISPLAY AND WHAT THEY MEAN)
At access level 1, the panel’s display provides feedback on the system’s current status. Priority is always given
to the most important current event, i.e. fire conditions will override pre-alarms and/or fault conditions. This
section (pages 8-11) outlines the various messages that may be displayed, what they mean and what action
is required.
NORMAL CONDITIONS
In normal mode (when no fires, faults or pre-alarms are occurring), one of the following messages will
be displayed at the panel:
Time
Date
System status
24 Jun
: Normal
10:59:34
FREDCO WAREHOUSING
Options
: Normal
: Normal: occupied
: Normal: unoccupied
: Outputs delayed
: Disablements active
: Zone tests active
: Calibrating
Site specific text
Normal is displayed when there are no fires, faults or pre-alarms on the system and the panel’s
day/night (building occupied/unoccupied) facility HAS NOT been set up by the system engineer.
Normal: occupied is displayed when there are no fires, faults or pre-alarms on the system and the panel
is in day (building occupied) mode.
Normal: unoccupied is displayed when there are no fires, faults or pre-alarms on the system and the
panel is in night (building unoccupied) mode.
Day/night (building occupied/unoccupied) settings are normally programmed into the panel by a
system engineer. They allow the system to operate differently dependent on the time of day with, for
example, different detector sensitivity settings and lower sounder volumes. If required, authorised
users can manually alter the time the panel enters day and night mode using the access level 2 menu
options - see pages 14-19.
Outputs delayed is displayed if one or more delays to outputs have been programmed into the panel.
It indicates that certain outputs (which may include sounders, relays and/or output units) will not
trigger in the event of a fire alarm condition for a set period of time, as programmed by the system
engineer. Pressing the More Information button in a fire alarm condition will give more information
about delays.
Disablements active is displayed if one or more disablements have been programmed into the panel
by an authorised user or engineer. If required, you can view these disablements at access level 1 (or, if
you are an authorised user, you can cancel them (or set additional disablements) at access level 2.
Zone tests active is displayed if one or more of the fire alarm system’s zones have been programmed
into test mode by an authorised engineer. When a zone is in test mode, any fire alarm conditions
raised on it WILL NOT be reported to the panel in the normal way. As such, this message should only
appear when an engineer is working on the system. If required, you can view which zones are in test
mode at access levels 1 or 2. Zones can only be taken out of test mode by an authorised engineer.
Calibrating... is displayed if automatic adjustments are taking place to allow the system’s smoke and
heat detectors to perform at their optimum level. Normally, this message only appears at 04:00 hours
although it is possible that an engineer may have programmed this to happen at an alternative time.
Whilst calibrating, the display will list the ID code of the device being calibrated, i.e. “L:1 D:154” and
the system will not return to normal until the process is complete.

To view any additional zones that are in fire, press the 5or6buttons as appropriate. The display will
continue to show the last zone that went into fire but all previous zones will now appear on a stepby-step basis with details of which order they went into fire, i.e. 1st zone, 2nd zone, etc.
Pressing the More Information button at any time will give you details of the actual device(s) that are
in a fire condition on the zone that is on the top line of the display. These can be scrolled through
using the 5and 6buttons.
In the event of a fire condition, the building’s fire management plan should always be
executed.
Authorised users can silence or reset the system as appropriate by entering access level 2 and pressing
the buttons on the panel’s front. Details on how to do this can be found on page 14.
FIRE CONDITIONS WITH OUTPUT DELAYS
If a fire condition occurs on a zone that has been programmed with one or more output delays, the
panel will report the fire condition as described above but the panel’s Delays Running indicator will
flash yellow to indicate that one or more of the zone’s assigned outputs has not yet triggered. Details
of which outputs have delays running can be viewed by pressing the More Information button.
XFP USER MANUAL & LOG BOOK • Approved Document No. DFU2000510 Rev 1 • Page 9 of 28
XFP NETWORKABLE ANALOGUE ADDRESSABLE FIRE ALARM PANEL
1ST-STAGE FIRE CONDITIONS
On sites where there is a high incidence of nuisance alarms or where the consequence of a false alarm
could result in the activation of, say, a sprinkler system, the fire officer may have permitted certain
zones to be set up with:
• a 1st-Stage zone dependency function - to prevent the zone going into full alarm until certain
other events have occurred on the same zone, such as a second device going into alarm; or
• a 1st-Stage investigation delay period - to give the user time to investigate the cause of an
alarm before a full alarm is initiated.
Details of any zones set up with 1st-Stage alarm function will appear on the System Set-Up Data Chart
on page 20, provided it has been completed by the system engineer.
In the event of a 1st-Stage fire condition (zone dependency or investigation delay):
• the panel’s internal sounder (if enabled) will pulse;
• the relevant Fire Zone indicator on the panel will flash;
• the panel’s display will show the number and name of the last zone which entered a “1st-Stage”
fire condition (see example below).
Number of zone in
1st stage fire
Last zone:
Name of zone in
1st stage fire
1:Ground Floor
System status
1st-Stage
1 Zones
Total number of
zones in 1st stage fire
If the 1st-Stage alarm is in a zone set up with a zone dependency function:
Press the More Information button to display the actual device that has triggered the 1st-stage fire
condition (the display will also confirm that the panel is waiting for a confirmatory signal before
going into full alarm). Pressing the More Information again will show how long is left before the
panel auto-resets (returns to normal mode) should a confirmatory signal not be received.
If the 1st-Stage alarm is in a zone set up with an investigation delay period:
Press the More Information button to display the actual device that has triggered the 1st-stage fire
condition (pressing More Information again will count down how long you have to invoke the zone’s
investigation delay period before it goes into full alarm).
To start the zone’s investigation delay period:
Enter access level 2 (see page 14) and press the Investigate button. The period the investigation delay
runs for will be as programmed by the system engineer. Pressing More Information after the
Investigate button has been pressed will display how long is left before the investigation period expires
and the zone goes into full alarm.
If upon investigation you discover the fire condition is correct, you can override the delay by activating
any manual call point in that zone.
Should any additional detection device(s) be activated in the zone being investigated during the
recognition or delay periods, the panel will automatically put the zone into full alarm.
Should you discover the fire condition is false, you can silence or reset the 1st-stage fire condition at
access level 2 (see page 14) and take appropriate action to clear the nuisance alarm.
In effect, the 1st-Stage delay on a zone set up for investigation comprises two delays - the initial recognition
period (where the user is expected to acknowledge the delay) followed by the investigation period itself.

PRE-ALARM CONDITIONS
Pre-alarm conditions are designed to warn the user that a smoke or heat detector is registering an
increase in conditions that could lead to a fire. Pre-alarms must be taken seriously as a fire condition
could be imminent.
In the event of a pre-alarm condition:
• the panel’s internal sounder (if enabled) will pulse;
• the panel’s display will show details of the smoke or heat detector which is in pre-alarm, for example:
Pre-alarm message

FAULT CONDITIONS
If a part of the fire alarm system fails due to detector failure, wiring fault, etc.:
• one or more of the panel’s Fault indicators will flash;
• the panel’s internal sounder (if enabled) will pulse;
• the panel’s display will show an appropriate fault message (in the case of a faulty manual call
point, for example, the zone on which the faulty call point is located will be displayed):
