  • Page 8: Description

    A basic FireFinder-XLS control system consists of a PMI, a PMI-2, or a PMI-3 operator interface and central processor, a PSC-12 power supply and battery charger, a PTB power termination board, a DLC intelligent device loop controller or MLC MXL line card loop driver, and ZIC-4A zone indicating card.

  • Page 9

    If a problem develops with the program or proces- sor, the watchdog circuit places the System into a trouble condition and resets it. Each module in the FireFinder-XLS System has its own microprocessor. To ensure reliable operation, if the main panel’s central processing unit stops, these modules, operating in degrade, still annunciate alarms and troubles through common lines called Any Alarm and A ny Trouble.

    CHAPTER 6 | FIREFINDER-XLS INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL OPERATION PROCEDURE Switch Control Module The SCM Switch Control Module is used for manual control of the fire system. The SCM-8 contains eight switches and eight pairs of LEDs. Each LED pair contains one bi-color (red/green) and one yellow LED.

    | CHAPTER 6 FIREFINDER-XLS INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL The Evac signal turns off (assuming no automatic alarms exist). The Select Evac and all Speaker Group switch LEDs turn off. Alert at FCC The Alert operation consists of the following functions which are described as: Galactic All Alert, Global All Alert, All Alert, and Select Alert.

    CHAPTER 6 | FIREFINDER-XLS INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL Depress the desired individual Speaker Group switches in the same VLinks. The selected Speaker Group and Display Alert switch LEDs flash red. If no Speaker Group switches are pressed for 120 seconds, the system automatically returns to normal.

  • Page 104: Mass Notification

    INTRODUCTION AND OPERATION Starting from version 12, FireFinder-XLS can be configured as a combined Fire Alarm and Mass Notification system. Athough they use many of the same elements (PMI, SCM switches, etc), the MNS and Fire Alarm systems operate independently. The MNS is reset separately from the Fire system, and vice versa.

  • Page 105

    CONFIGURATION The MNS application uses the FireFinder-XLS Voice system to accomplish its func- tionality via switches (e.g. SCM). Individual zone circuits (speaker, strobe) are bundled into geographic groups during system configuration. These groups are either auto- matically controlled by pre-programmed system logic, or manually controlled by the switches located on Autonomous Control Units (ACUs).

  • Page 106

    CHAPTER 7 | FIREFINDER-XLS INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL If a command station’s node contains speaker groups used by the MNS system, Zeus requires an MNS Audible Silence switch and an MNS Audible Unsilence switch in each local control station. SCM-8 switches can be used for this purpose. Similarly,...

    | CHAPTER 7 FIREFINDER-XLS INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL NOTIFICATION APPLIANCE CIRCUITS There are four types of MNS outputs: Speaker zones (which include amplifiers and ZIC circuits), NAC/strobe ZIC Circuits, Relays, and Pseudo Points. Manual control of MNS must be configured for highest priority. Automatic MNS events can be configured either above or below Fire Alarm events in priority.

  • Page 108

    CHAPTER 7 | FIREFINDER-XLS INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL MNS and Releasing Even though the MNS operates independently of the Fire system, Releasing events must always have priority over MNS events. It is required that the MNS does not override notification appliances that are required to provide suppression pre-dis- charge notification.

    APPLICATION SPECIFIC DETECTION Application Specific Detection (ASD) allows the system designer (and anyone with Control menu access) to program an HFP-11, FDOT421 or OH921 detector on a DLC loop or an FP-11 detector on an MLC loop for the detector’s sensitivity, pre-alarm threshold, and other alarm- related parameters using English descriptions of the detector's environment (application).

  • Page 114

    | APPENDIX B FIREFINDER-XLS INSTALLATION, OPERATION AND MAINTENANCE MANUAL Testing ASD Devices Since ASD is transmitted to the detector to adjust the detection algorithm to reduce false alarms, it is necessary to bypass ASD when smoke testing devices for which ASD has been enabled.

  • Page 115

    For the FDOOTC441/OOHC941, FDOOT441/OOH941, FDOT421/OH921, FDT421/HI921, and FDO421/OP921 detectors, the IEC must be enabled on the XLS node level. Once a detector is chosen to be covered by IEC, FireFinder-XLS stores and analyzes the analog readings of the smoke detector and adjusts the detector’s threshold upward or downward, as necessary, to maintain a constant sensitivity.

  • Page 116

    Threshold When a New Zeus is Uploaded After FireFinder-XLS checks that the actual ID of a device with IEC agrees with Zeus, it adjusts the detector’s alarm threshold according to the data stored. The first adjustment occurs after 100 hours of data accumulation. In the case of power cycling or resetting, adjustments begin within 90 seconds.

    SECURITY POINT INSTALLATION These circuits are intended for 24 hour alarm monitoring only. UL 1076 requires an HTSW-1 tamper switch as well as a PAL -1 printer. Only Models HTRI-S/-D/-R may be used as security points. A COMMUNICATION FAILURE with an HTRI device configured for SECURITY results in a SECURITY EVENT as well as a communication trouble.

    Using the optional AC monitor input, the Silent Knight Model 5129 monitors AC fail trouble. When the FireFinder-XLS system reports an AC fail trouble, the Silent Knight Model 5129 sends a specific code to the Central Station that identifies the trouble as AC fail.

    TESTING / MAINTENANCE If the system is connected to the fire department, etc., or actuates an internal system, disarm the appropriate outputs before servicing to prevent actuation. (See PMI/PMI-2/PMI-3 Operation for procedures.) Notify the fire department and person- nel at your facility that a System test is being performed so that any alarm sounding can be ignored during the test.
