Installation and commissioning instructions are provided in the first part of the manual with the following sections dealing with technical details and operation. A separate Log Book is also provided. System Design and Planning It is assumed that the system, of which this control panel is a part, has been designed by a competent fire alarm system designer in accordance with BS 5839 Part 1: 1988 (from 15th July 2003 this will be BS5839 Part 1: 2002) and with regard to BS EN 54 parts 2 and 4 in the case of control equipment and power supplies. Design drawings should be provided to clearly show the position of any field devices and ancillary equipment. Panel Types FCPENV-MINI 4 – A four zone, non extendable control panel with an integral 1.0 Amp PSU and space for 2 x 12V S.L.A batteries. Cabinet size: 277mm Wide x 200mm High x 97mm Deep General The control panel is a micro-processor controlled, conventional fire alarm control system, comprising of one circuit board. The enclosure consists of back box and hinged, removable lid. Constructed of 1.2mm (18swg) zintec mild steel and powder coated in textured light grey. The enclosure is designed to give protection to IP30 level (for indoor use only) The control panel is available as a 4 zone only and has no provision for repeater panels. These panels are designed to comply with the requirements of BS EN 54 part 2 1998, but include integral facilities to enable connection to older systems, which may not comply with current standards. The control panels are compatible with a wide range of detection and alarm devices. Refer to technical specification for details. The ENVOY MINI4 control panel has integral detector removal monitoring and no special active end of line units are required. ENVOY MINI4 control panels are simple to install and operate. Control functions are enabled by code entry. The panel fascia is retained by a security cam lock . No internal access is required under normal usage. Equipment guarantee This equipment is not guaranteed un less the complete system is installed and commissioned in accordance with the laid down national standards by an approved and competent person or organisation. This p roduct ha s been manu factured in conformance with the requir ements of all ap plicable EU Co uncil Dire ctives. 4 MENV-MINI4-02 Issue2 June 2006 SECTION 2 – INSTALLATION General • The installation of fire detection and alarm systems should be carried out in accordance with current IEE wiring regulations and in line with B.S.5839 British Standard codes of practice for fire alarm installations. The installation should be carried out by suitably qualified and experienced technicians. • Care should be taken with regards to avoiding the close proximity of high voltage cables or areas likely to induce electrical interference. Earth links should be maintained on all system cables and grounded in the control panel. • Any junction boxes used should be clearly labelled FIRE ALARM. • Any ancillary devices, e.g. door retaining magnets, must be powered from a separate power source. • Any coils or solenoids used in the system must be suppressed, to avoid damage to the control equipment. ESD PRECAUTION Electronic components are vulnerable to damage by Electrostatic Discharges (ESD). An ESD wrist strap, suitably grounded, should be worn at all times when handling pcbs. These wrist straps are designed to prevent the build up of static charges, not only within a persons body, but on many other materials. ESD damage is not always evident immediately, faults can manifest themselves at anytime in the future. All pcbs should be stored in static shielded bags (silvered) for safe keeping, when not mounted in the control panel. Do not use “black” or “pink” bags and never allow pcbs to come in contact with bubble wrap or expanded polystyrene (packing chips). Static shielded bags and disposable wrist straps are available from the manufacturer. Warning, Control Panel Access Keys The keys to the control panel must be kept, safely, by a responsible person. Hazardous voltages may be present. Access to the inside of the panel is not normally required. Disconnect mains supply prior to opening cabinet. 5 MENV-MINI4-02 Issue2 June 2006 Cable Types and Limitations All System wiring should be installed to meet BS 5839: Pt 1: 1988 (from 15th July 2003 this will be BS5839: Pt 1: 2002) and BS 7671(Wiring Regulations). Other national standards of installation should be used where applicable To comply with EMC (Electro Magnetic Compatibility) regulations and to reduce the risk of electrical interference in the system wiring, we recommend the use of screened cables throughout the installation. Acceptable, commonly available, screened cables, which can be used on both the sounder and detector circuits include FP200™, Firetuff™, Firecel™, MICC (Pyro™) or any other cable complying with BS 6387 categories C, W, Z. Mains Wiring The mains supply to the fire alarm panel should be hard wired, using suitable three core cable (no less than 0.75mm2 and no more than 2.5mm2) or a suitable three conductor system that meets the appropriate national national wiring regulations. The panel should be fed from a double pole, isolating, switched, fused, spur, fused at 3A. This should be secure from unauthorised operation and be marked ‘FIRE ALARM: DO NOT SWITCH OFF’. The mains supply must be exclusive to the fire panel. As an alternative to a switched fused spur, a double pole isolating device may be used (see diagram) providing it meets the appropriate national wiring regulations. NOTE: Any isolating device used, must have a minimum 3mm contact gap. 6 MENV-MINI4-02 Issue2 June 2006 Planning the Cable Layout in the Panel The detector and sounder circuit cabling is classed as extra low voltage and must be segregated away from mains voltages. Careful planning is needed to ensure this, refer to Figure 1 (below) for guidance and important information on how to remove the panel’s knockouts. Always ensure that if a knockout is removed, the hole is filled with a good quality cable gland. Any unused knockouts must be securely blanked off. Figure 1 : Location of knockouts for cable entry and knockout removal details Fixing the Cabinet Remove outer cover by unlocking the door, drop down fully, remove Earth connection, slide lid to the right, then pull gently towards you. Disconnect transformer and earth connections at top l/h corner of PCB using small terminal driver. The terminals are marked ac (white wires) and Earth (green and yellow wires). Remove circuit board from back box by unscrewing 3 in number M4 cross headed screws from the circuit board supports. Place circuit board, lid and fixings in a safe position. Secure cabinet to the wall using the four indented holes in the back box (see figure 2). Ensure that the box is mounted in a convenient location where it may be easily operated and serviced and where it is away from possible sources of vibration or shock, i.e., on partition wall next to a slamming door. External cables should be glanded via pre-formed knockouts at the top and rear of the box as provided. The enclosure should be cleaned of swarf etc., prior to refitting of printed circuit board. Disconnect the battery leads from the circuit board by a pull out connector at the top l/h corner of the PCB. Insert batteries and connect the battery leads to the battery terminals before replacing circuit board. Ensuring the white link lead is also connected. Figure 2 : Fixing the cabinet 7 MENV-MINI4-02 Issue2 June 2006 Mains Connections The general requirements for mains wiring is described on page 5. Do not connect the mains supply to the panel until you are fully conversant with the layout and features of the equipment. A rating plate is fitted in the bottom left hand corner of the panel describing the nature of the supply permitted. The incoming mains supply should be brought into the panel in the bottom left hand corner, via the knockout provided. A suitable cable gland must be used to secure the outer sheath of the cable used. The earth must first be connected to the primary earth stud (peg) marked with a crimp provided. symbol using ring Sufficient earth lead should be left to allow Live and Neutral connections to be accidentally pulled from terminal block, while leaving earth connection intact. Secondary earths may be connected to the brass earthing block.

By following a logical sequence any faults that may occur can be quickly identified and rectified before moving on to the next step. Before connecting external circuits to the control panel it is recommended that the panel is powered up and tested, and any faults cleared before proceeding. Ensure that 4K7 resistors are fitted into zone and sounder circuit terminals before applying power. To clear the battery fault indication when the mains is connected, a battery must be connected to the battery terminals; it is not possible to inhibit the battery fault by the insertion of a resistor. The system may be operated on the battery supply, i.e. if the mains supply is not available. Powering the Panel Remove the fuse from the mains input. Connect the supply wiring to the terminal block. Check that all connections are sound and that 4K7 EOL resistors are fitted to zone and sounder circuits. Refit the fuse and switch on the mains supply. The panel LEDs are illuminated momentarily, the ARW LED remains lit and a battery fault is indicated. The internal buzzer sounds. Connecting the Battery The standby battery comprises two 12V, S.L.A. cells of a capacity suitable for the required standby period and total alarm load. Batteries may be located in the panel or in a separate cabinet depending on the battery size. Battery leads are provided, including a battery link. The SUPPLY HEALTHY LED should now be illuminated. The ARW LED should be illuminated and the internal buzzer pulsing. Enter Activate Controls code, (default code is 1234 ENTER) and press RESET. All the LEDs are lit momentarily, the ARW LED should extinguish and the buzzer should be silent. The panel is now operating correctly in the quiescent mode. Any faults that are indicated at this stage should be investigated and cleared before proceeding. If necessary refer to the fault location chart on page 13 for further information. If unfamiliar with the Surveyor ENVOY Series equipment, it is advisable to explore the panel operation and become conversant with the controls before proceeding. Faults can be simulated by open and short circuiting zone and sounder circuits, fire alarms can be generated by shorting the zone terminals with a 470R resistor. Refer to the Operation section if required. Disposal of Batteries Respect the environment. Batteries must be disposed of responsibly and in accordance with any local regulations. 12 MENV-MINI4-02 Issue2 June 2006 Zone Circuits The default mode of operation assumes that the zone circuit is configured for open and short circuit fault monitoring, and detector removal monitoring, i.e. detector bases are fitted with a suitable diode. If these conditions do not apply, e.g. when connecting a circuit from an existing system, the operating parameters for each affected zone must be changed. Refer to the Engineering Options section for details. It is recommended that each zone is connected in turn and its operation proved before moving on to the next zone. Check that all detectors are fitted into their bases and that a 4K7 Ohm resistor has been fitted to the last device. Remove the 4K7 Ohm resistor from the selected zone terminals and connect the zone pair, observing polarity. If a zone fault is indicated, investigate and clear before proceeding to the next circuit. If necessary refer to the fault location chart on page 13. Continue to connect each zone circuit until all are connected and fault free. It may be preferable to test the operation of zone devices before proceeding with the connection of sounders. Sounder Circuits The MINI 4 has two common sounder circuits. . Polarised and suppressed sounders should be connected in a parallel circuit with no spurs or tees. Ensure that the load of the sounders is within the individual circuit limits, and that the total load does not exceed the panel limits, taking into account any additional load imposed by auxiliary circuits, repeaters, etc. Remove the 4K7 Ohm resistor from the relevant sounder circuit terminals and connect the circuit pair, observing polarity. Ensure that a 4K7 Ohm resistor is fitted in parallel with the last device on the circuit. Clear any faults before proceeding – refer to the fault location chart on page 12 if necessary. Sounders can be tested by operating the SOUND ALARMS push button. 13 MENV-MINI4-02 Issue2 June 2006 SECTION 5 – FAULT FINDING General A fault is indicated by the illumination of the SYSTEM FAULT LEDs and a buzzer tone. Specific faults are identified by additional fascia indicators, e.g. zone fault. The buzzer tone varies depending on the fault and may, or may not, be silenceable. Fault Latch If an intermittent fault exists, it is possible to make all fault indications latch, to help identify problems. To activate fault latch, select option DIL switch 1 to ON. Zone Fault Indications Steady zone fault LED = Zone in test or disabled Pulsing zone fault LED = Zone in fault condition Identify the nature of the zone fault with the following method. When a zone fault is present: Press and hold: Button 1 to identify open circuit fault Button 2 to identify short circuit fault Button 3 to identify detector removed fault If the zone fault indication remains when any of the buttons are pressed then that is the fault identified. If the indication clears when the button is pressed then that fault is not present. 14 MENV-MINI4-02 Issue2 June 2006 Fault Finding Chart The following chart identifies the indications that may be displayed, with the possible cause and the recommended action. Fault location should be tackled logically by isolating fault paths until the source is apparent, e.g. disconnecting zone and sounder circuits to prove if the fault is on the circuit or in the panel, etc. Faults on external circuits can be traced by breaking down the circuit, e.g. placing the EOL at the mid point of the circuit and determining which half is affected. Panel Indication System Fault (System Healthy extinguished) Possible Cause Action Mains failure/fuse failure Battery disconnected or open circuit. Battery Fuse failed Voltage too high (>30V) or too low (<19V) Check supply/fuse Check battery/fuse Adjust to 27.6V. Measure voltage using the battery terminals on pcb, with the batteries disconnected. System Fault Sounder circuit open circuit (LED slow Check circuit integrity/EOL pulse) or short circuit (LED fast pulse) Sounder not polarised or reverse polarity – correct fault System Fault + Zone Fault Zone open circuit (LED slow pulse) Zone short circuit (LED fast pulse) Confirm fault is on external circuit by disconnecting zone wires and fitting 4K7R in zone terminals.

Now use buttons 1 – 4 to select which zone(s) to put into test mode and press ENTER when all selections have been made. The test mode entry will “time out” within 5 seconds if the ENTER button is not pressed. It is possible to have any or all zones in test mode at the same time. The Test Mode LED will be on. The fault LED of the zone(s) in test mode will be illuminated and the internal buzzer will be sounding. The operation of any smoke detector or call point will now ring all bells or sounders for one second. The panel will automatically reset, providing that the detector is clear of smoke or the call point glass is back in position. The alarms will then sound momentarily to acknowledge that the panel has reset, so you can move on to the next device. Press the RESET button on the keypad at any time to exit Test Mode. The removal of a detector while in test mode will also cause the alarms to sound for one second and then again momentarily when the detector is replaced, thus enabling a Detector Removal Monitoring Walk Test. N.B the panel may take a few seconds to recognise a detector has been removed due to it’s normal monitoring cycle. ZONE TEST WITHOUT SOUNDERS To test zones without the operation of any sounders, i.e. visual indications and panel buzzer only. Press the TEST MODE button on the keypad followed by buttons 1 – 4 to select the zone(s) to put into test. Then press the SILENCE ALARMS button and then ENTER. The sounders will now be disabled during all testing. Should a zone which is not in test go into alarm the sounders will operate normally. SOUNDER WALK TEST A sounder test can be activated by pressing TEST MODE button and then using the SOUND ALARMS button instead of buttons 1 – 4. This will cause the panel to sound all the bells for one second every eight seconds, allowing the user to walk to each sounder to check that it is working correctly. Remember to push each button slowly and deliberately. There is a half second delay on the buttons to prevent misuse. The panel will bleep to acknowledge each push of the button. 21 MENV-MINI4-02 Issue2 June 2006 Disable Zones or Sounders DISABLE ZONES To disable / isolate zones , enter code to activate controls and press the DISABLE button on the keypad Now use buttons 1 – 4 to select which zone(s) to disable and then press ENTER when all selections have been made. The disable mode will “time out” within 5 seconds if the ENTER button is not pressed. It is possible to select any, or all zones, to be isolated at the same time. The disabled LED will be illuminated. The fault LED of the zone that is disabled will be illuminated and the internal buzzer will be sounding. DISABLE SOUNDERS To disable sounder circuits press the SOUND ALARMS button instead of buttons 1 – 4 (see above) and then press ENTER. The sounder fault LED and the disabled LED will be illuminated. To ‘enable’ the zones or sounder circuits again, simply repeat exactly the same procedure. WARNING zones and sounder circuits that have been disabled cannot be enabled by the use of the RESET button. Remember to push each button slowly and deliberately. There is a half second delay on the buttons to prevent misuse. The panel will bleep to acknowledge each push of the button. 22 MENV-MINI4-02 Issue2 June 2006 Routine Maintenance and Testing It is essential that the fire alarm installation is checked regularly by a responsible person for correct operation in accordance with EN54 Part 2 or BS5839 Part 1. or applicable standard. CLEANING The exterior of the cabinet may be cleaned when required using a clean, moistened cloth. Do not use solvents or abrasives as these will damage the panel. ROUTINE TESTING Routine checks should be carried out as detailed in this section of the manual. It is essential to keep the log, in order to maintain a record of tests, checks, alarms and faults. A log book is provided with this instruction manual. The log book should be kept with the panel and be available for inspection by an authorised person. DAILY Check that the green, “SUPPLY HEALTHY“, indicator is lit. If the indicator is not lit, record the fact in the log book and call for a qualified electrician to check the power supply. WEEKLY Carry out the daily check. Operate one detector or call point on one zone and check that the panel responds to the alarm and operates the warning devices. Record the results of the test and the zone detector/call point operated, in the log book. A different zone detector/call point should be operated each week, to ensure that all detectors/call points are tested in turn. Visually inspect the batteries and all connections and ensure that they are in good condition. Visually inspect all call points and detectors and ensure that none is, in any way, obstructed or damaged. QUARTERLY Check all previous entries in the log book and ensure that all necessary remedial action has been carried out. Carry out the daily check. Carry out the weekly test. Isolate the mains supply, then test that the battery is capable of operating the warning devices by operating a detector or call point. Reconnect the mains supply. Record the results of the tests in the log book. ANNUALLY Carry out the daily, weekly and quarterly tests. Test all the detectors and call points for correct operation. Visually inspect all cable fittings and equipment to ensure that they are secure, undamaged and adequately protected. Record the results in the log book. EVERY 5 YEARS Renew the sealed lead acid batteries and record the fact in the log book. The installation requires to be tested in accordance with the testing and inspection requirements of the Local or National Standards. Any defect should be recorded in the log book and action should be taken to correct it. DETECTORS Renew or return the smoke detectors for cleaning, as directed in the manufacturer’s data, to ensure correct operation and freedom from false alarms. Cleaning smoke detectors is a specialised activity. If in doubt consult the supplier. Record the actions in the log book. NOTE: Ionisation smoke detectors contain a radioactive source and should only be disposed of in the recommended manner. Contact your Service Company for further advice. 23 MENV-MINI4-02 Issue2 June 2006 USER INSTRUCTIONS Alarm Condition If all sounders or bells are ringing, the system is in an alarm condition. YOU MUST EVACUATE THE BUILDING OR FOLLOW YOUR NORMAL FIRE DRILL PROCEDURES. A responsible person should then:1 2 3 4 Check the control panel to see which area or zone has caused the system to go into alarm. The zone in alarm will be indicated by a red, flashing, light on the front of the control panel, see fig 1. Go to the area which has caused the alarm to check if a fire exists. Only when it is safe to do so should the alarms be silenced. Enter the activation code, press ENTER and then press the SILENCE ALARMS button, see fig 2. If it was a false alarm look for the device that has caused the alarm. A detector will have a red light lit, or check to see if a call point glass is broken. (If so replace the glass or call an engineer.) When fully satisfied that there is no fire, return to the control panel and press the RESET button, see fig 3. Once the system has been reset the light on the detector should extinguish and only the green SUPPLY HEALTHY lamp should be lit on the control panel. If the system continues to false alarm, call an engineer. Fault Condition If a buzzer is sounding in the control panel but the sounders or bells are not ringing, then there is either a fault on the system or zones / sounders have been disabled. Call an engineer. The internal fault buzzer can be silenced by pressing the ENTER button. DO NOT RESET THE SYSTEM UNTIL AN ENGINEER HAS INVESTIGATED THE FAULT. See relevant section in the installation and operating manual for details of disabling and enabling zones and sounders.
