ICAM ILQ Product Guide
Introduction
The ICAM ILQ is an Aspirating Smoke Detector (ASD) that provides very early warning of fire conditions by
drawing air samples through sampling holes located in an air sampling pipe network.
The ICAM ILQ detector is specifically designed to cater for small areas up to 100 m² (1000 ft²). ICAM ILQ is
suited to several applications, including but not limited to:

Connection to the detector using Xtralis QSC software is available via the USB interface.
Figure 1-1: ICAM ILQ
The detector contains dry-contact relays which allow connectivity to fire warning and fire suppression release
systems, and integration into a building management system (BMS).
Note:
The ICAM ILQ does not have a single exhaust to allow back venting to the protected area (i.e.
piping the exhaust ports back to the protected area), hence it is only suitable to protect areas where
there is no significant pressure difference (i.e. <5Pa) between the sampling holes and the exhaust
ports of the detector.

Product Information
2.1
How it Works
The ICAM ILQ detector continually samples air from the protected environment via two pipe inlets for the
sampling pipes on each side of the pipe inlets (A1, A2). Upon entering the detector, the air passes through
respective inlet manifolds (B1, B2) and the aspirators (C1, C2). The sampled air then enters the filter (D)
where the majority is exhausted out through filter exhaust (I2) and a portion from each inlet is separated into
two pathways, one pathway enters as clean air (E1,E2) and the other pathway enters as sampled air (F1,F2)
into the detection chamber (G). Sampled air is used for smoke detection and the clean air used for optics
protection. After smoke detection the air is exhausted out of the chamber exhaust (I1). Flow measurement is
performed at the chamber exhaust (H).
Note:
Exhaust ports I1 and I2 should be vented to the same pressure as the sampling holes.

Air Sampling Pipe Network
The detector uses two linear pipes of up to 6 m (20 ft) or two branched pipes of up to 9 m (30ft) to cover a
maximum of 100 m² (1000 ft²). Short pipes can be used to suit the installation.
3.1
Installation Considerations
The following points should be considered when installing sampling pipe:
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
l
Minimize flexing in sampling pipes by supporting the pipe every 1.5 m (5 ft) or less, or at a distance
described in local codes and standards.
Sampling pipe fits firmly into the tapered detector port, DO NOT glue this connection.
Allow sufficient movement at the detector to permit pipe removal for maintenance.
Pipe ends must be made smooth for bonding.
Sampling holes must be drilled in line and perpendicular to the pipe.
Sample holes must be clear of rough edges and debris.
Ensure that all sampling holes are from within a single space (not physically different areas separated by
walls).
Ensure that there is no significant pressure differential between sampling holes and exhaust ports.
Pipes are free of debris.
All joints must be glued except the pipes entering the detector.
Notes:
l
l
Sampling holes should face into the direction of airflow, or point downwards in static airflow situations.
For return air sampling refer to the notes in Section 3.4 on page 14.
For code-specific information, see Codes and Standards Information for Air Sampling Smoke Detection
on page iii.
3.2
Pipe Inlets
The ICAM ILQ detector supports two sampling pipes. Both pipes must be connected for proper detector
operation.
The air inlet ports are tapered such that they accommodate both 25 mm (1 in) or IPS ¾ inch (1.05 in outer
diameter) pipes. Each air inlet port allows maximum insertion of the sampling pipe to a depth of 15 mm (0.60
in).
While connecting the detector to the pipe network:
l
l
Square off and de-burr the end of the sampling air pipes, ensuring the pipes are free from debris.
Insert the pipes into the pipe inlet(s) ensuring a firm fit.
Note:
DO NOT glue the pipes to the pipe inlets.
3.3
Exhaust Air
Air is expelled from the detector via the filter and after the detection chamber into the area where the detector
is located. Refer to Figure 2-2 on page 6.
There should be no significant pressure differential between the sampling holes and the exhaust ports.

Ensure that all sampling holes are from within a single space (not physically separated by walls).
Ensure that there is no significant pressure differential between sampling holes and all exhaust ports.
Ensure that the number of bends does not exceed four (4) per inlet and per branch.
Do not use a single ILQ to perform ceiling and return air grille detection.
For return air grille detection, the pipe can be routed to the return air grille whilst the detector is installed
away from the return air grille. The sampling holes must be oriented 30° to the incoming airflow direction.
Ensure that the air sampling configuration complies to local codes and standards.
Ensure that the rules in Table 3-1 are followed when a single hole per inlet or two holes per inlet are used.
When the air sampling pipes are unbalanced, for example configurations 2A, 3B, 4C shown in Table 3-2
below, smoke entering the holes closer to the detector will trigger an alarm earlier than smoke entering
the furthest holes.

Monitored General Purpose Input (GPI)
The GPI is a programmable input which can be configured to initiate a number of different actions, including,
by default, a Remote Reset function. Refer to Section 7.3 on page 36 for GPI configuration options.
With monitored GPI, the detector monitors the GPI for open or short circuit faults when the GPI function is set
to any value.
When the GPI function parameter is set to PSU monitoring, the detector indicates an external equipment fault
condition by monitoring the line impedance. A 47K End of Line (EOL) resistor is supplied with the product and
must be assembled in parallel with the device to be monitored.
The EOL resistor provides a known termination to the external equipment, this allows the detector to identify
open or short circuits.

Powering Up
After installing the detector it is necessary to power up the system. The power up sequence lasts
approximately two minutes.
The ICAM ILQ detector does not have a power switch, i.e it is hard wired to a 24 VDC supply and it is
assumed that the power supply has been installed as per manufacturers instructions in accordance with local
electrical codes.
If the system fails to power up, check all power wires are secured to their terminals and that the polarity is
correct.
On power up:
l
l
l
The Power LED illuminates and the detector runs a series of self-diagnostic and lamp tests.
If there is a fault, the Fault LED illuminates. To identify the fault, check the fault code on the display
panel or within the Xtralis QSC software.
The aspirator starts.
It is normal for the detector to display faults immediately after the first power up. Reset the detector using the
Xtralis QSC software or the reset button on the detector. This will unlatch the relays and turn off the Fault
LED. Any remaining faults will cause the Fault LED to illuminate again. Proceed with the preliminary system
check.
4.6
Preliminary System Check
A preliminary system check is required after installing the ICAM ILQ detector, before it is commissioned for
use. The check can be conducted by using buttons on the detector or by connecting to the detector using the
Xtralis QSC software. The preliminary systems check includes:
l

ICAM ILQ Product Guide
Commissioning
The ICAM ILQ has been designed to simplify the commissioning process. The AutoLearn function allows the
unit to assess its environment and setup appropriate alarm thresholds.
The detector is monitored during commissioning using Xtralis QSC.
Once the ICAM ILQ detector has been commissioned, it will report alarms and faults according to the
parameters defined during installation.
Note:
Detectors should be commissioned with a smoke test.
Prior to commissioning the detector:
1. Check that the pipe network is clean and correctly fitted with all joints correctly glued (except where the
pipe enters the detector, which must not be glued).
2. Check that the power is connected and on. Let the detector run for around 5 minutes. Ignore the faults
during this time. Reset the detector after 5 minutes of operation.
3. Normalize the airflow. This takes approximately 5 minutes.
4. Reset the detector after normalization. It should now be running without faults.
It is important that the protected environment is representative of normal operating conditions during the
AutoLearn process.
For code-specific information, see Codes and Standards Information for Air Sampling Smoke Detection on
page iii.
6.1
AutoLearn Smoke
AutoLearn Smoke is initiated by using controls on the front panel or from within Xtralis QSC.
During the AutoLearn Smoke process, the detector determines the average smoke and peak smoke
obscuration levels and sets suitable alarm thresholds for the operating environment. This process will
minimize nuisance alarms due to normal environmental background variations.
During the learning cycle, if an alarm condition occurs, AutoLearn will not complete its cycle. In this situation
the user must restart the AutoLearn process. If AutoLearn is halted, the alarm thresholds will be left at the
previous settings.
Conditions experienced during learning are assumed to be representative of normal operating conditions.
The AutoLearn Smoke learning times range from 15 minutes to 2 hours.
Note:
AutoLearn Smoke thresholds are volatile, therefore if thresholds are set using AutoLearn smoke
then it must be run each time the detector is powered up.
6.2
Commissioning Smoke Test
It is recommended that a smoke test be carried out to verify the integrity of the pipe network, to demonstrate
that the system is working and to measure the transport time to the detector.
This test involves introducing a smoke sample at the furthest sampling hole and then measuring the time
taken for the smoke to travel to the detector. Results are logged and compared to subsequent tests to note
variations of the system.

Allows to choose the communication port, change to appropriate virtual com
port.
Reset Filter Use Percentage
ICAM ILQ stores smoke hours to determine filter usage and raises a trouble
to replace the filter when certain smoke hours limit is reached. This button
allows to reset the smoke hours when an expired filter is replaced with a
new filter. Filter must be removed from the unit to use this function.
Lamp Test
Allows to perform LED, Buzzer and display test once.
Alarm and Relay Test
Allows to perform fire and fault relay test, prompts the user with another
screen to test fire and fault relays. Alarm test simulates the smoke value to
generate an Alarm condition.
AutoLearn Smoke
Allows to start AutoLearn smoke feature. AutoLearn uses background
conditions to set appropriate thresholds.
Normalize Airflow
This button allows air flow normalization if the detector airflow is within the
acceptable range. Normalization takes approximately 5 minutes.
Disable On
Allows disabling of the detector, when disabled detector stops reporting
alarms on relays.
Standby On
Allows setting the detector to standby. The detector shuts down the
aspirator and stops airflow and smoke detection.

Replacing the Filter
The detector reports a fault condition on the front panel and in the event log to indicate that the filter requires
replacement after the recommended period of time has elapsed, or filter use percentage limit reached,
whichever occurs first.
After removing the old filter and prior to inserting the new one, it is necessary to reset the filter used
percentage value. This can be done using the detector controls or from within Xtralis QSC.
