    DESCRIPTIONS FC901 SYSTEM DESCRIPTION The FC901 is a compact but powerful standalone fire alarm control panel. It features advanced addressable fire detection, keypad and offline programming, notification circuits, a 160 by 64 dots LCD display and event history retention capability. It’s typical configuration includes a power supply, a signaling addressable device circuit, two notification appliance circuits (NAC), Digital Alarm Communication Transmitter (DACT), four system status relays and a USB programming port.
  • Page 12: Signaling Line Circuit (Slc)

    There is also a system coder capable of zone operation. All of the NACs are power limited and support synchronization of listed devices using the Siemens sync protocol. Serial Interface Circuit (UFP) The FC901 control panel has a Serial Interface Circuit (UFP) that will drive up to 8 devices, eg.

    Note: For printer connection, wiring between the RPM and printer must be in conduit within 6 feet and in the same room as the panel. AUXILIARY MODULES Serial LCD Annunciators The FSD901 Serial LCD Annunciator consists of a backlit 160 by 64 dot (7 by 26 characters) LCD display, acknowledge, silence, unsilence, and reset buttons, a four-way button for event navigation, seven system status LED indicators and a security key switch.
  • Page 14: Slc Addressable Devices

    SLC ADDRESSABLE DEVICES Smoke Detector The control panel processor sends the sensitivity settings to the detectors and polls the detectors for their status. The detector determines normal, trouble and alarm conditions and communicates the conditions to the control panel. Variable Thresholds - The detectors can be set to operate in various pre-programmed profiles, depending on the environment where the detectors are used.

When the audible base ABHW-4B and ABHW-4S is used with H/8700 series detectors, it can be programmed to 1 output channel, and only 2 tone patterns (steady, temporal 3) can be selected using the system configuration tool.
  • Page 16: Event History

    EVENT HISTORY The control panel includes a non-volatile memory recording 1000 system events. Identified alarm, trouble, supervisory, status and other significant events will be recorded along with the date and time of occurrence. The history event log can be viewed at the main system display by operating menu controls from the panel.

  • Page 22: Control Panel Operation

    CONTROL PANEL OPERATION OPERATION INSTRUCTIONS Standby Condition In normal standby operation, the green AC POWER ON LED should be illuminated and no other indicator operating. The display will show the system label and the current time. Alarm Conditions ALARM When the system detects an alarm condition, the alarm LED activates (ON – flashing) and the local panel buzzer activates in a specific pattern to indicate an alarm condition.
  • Page 23: Trouble Conditions

    PRE-SIGNAL ALARMS Activation of an initiating device in an input group programmed for PRE-SIGNAL, activates the Alarm LED, LCD display, and the local panel buzzer. System and user-programmed outputs activate immediately except NAC. The delay of activation of user-programmed outputs can be programmed from 60 to 180 seconds.
  • Page 24 If the FC901 is configured as “Supervisory self restoring”, the system shall return to the “System Normal” status if the supervisory condition is restored unless there are additional events on the system. If the FC901 is not configured as “Supervisory self restoring”, the system reverts to standby condition only after the RESET button is pressed.
