    ALARM VERIFICATION Alarm verification provides FireFinder-XLS with a way to verify an alarm from area type addressable smoke detectors connected to intelligent loops (DLC or HZM). This feature reduces the incidence of false alarms. Only detectors that do not contain an integral alarm verification feature can be used.

    APPLICATION SPECIFIC DETECTION Application Specific Detection (ASD) allows the system designer (and anyone with Control menu access) to program an HFP-11 detector’s sensitivity, pre-alarm thresh- old, and other alarm-related parameters using English descriptions of the detector's environment (application). This eliminates the need for detailed knowledge of smoke detector terminology and operation.

    HFP-11 detector. The selection of IEC devices is made in the Zeus programming tool. 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 58

    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.
