www.acornfiresecurity.com Preparation Remove the front door plate containing the circuit board by unscrewing the door hinge. This has a connection to the base PCB, which needs to be removed. Exercise static precautions to prevent damage to the electronics. Store the front panel assembly safely until the master handset is mounted and cables have been attached.
www.acornfiresecurity.com Mounting the Compact unit The Compact unit weighs 4Kgs with batteries, so care should be taken to securely mount the unit on stud walling. Connecting the Compact unit 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 fire-resistant screened cables throughout the installation.
www.acornfiresecurity.com Batteries The compact requires one number 12V 5AH sealed lead acid batteries to provide backup power in the event of mains failure as defined in BS5839pt9 for 24 hours standby and 3 hours operation when powered by normal mains supply. For 72hour standby and 1 hour operation one number 12V 17AH battery is required, these will need to be fitted in an external battery enclosure.
www.acornfiresecurity.com Outstation Wiring The compact unit requires programming to determine the outstation configuration; Four types of handset are allowed on the system, type A (fixed phone) type B (hands-free refuge points), disabled toilet alarms and jack plates. For jack points a 10K EOL resistor is required at the OUT of the last plate on the line. Cable Guidance for Compact Unit and Outstations Following the publication of BS5839pt9:2011, the guidance on cables for the Compact unit has changed, following a relaxation in the requirements of the standard.
