It is a normally-open, dry contact signal initiating device that requires only one action by the user in order to initiate an alarm. The single input module mounted to the back of the unit supervises the station and sends an alarm signal to the loop controller when the switch is closed (i.e. when the handle is pulled). Device addressing One device address is required. The loop controller assigns an address to the station automatically. A custom address can be assigned to the station via laptop computer; no addressing switches are used. LEDs Diagnostic LEDs provide visible indication of the status of the station, when the unit is removed from the electrical box. Normal: Green LED flashes Alarm/active: Red LED flashes Mounting The terminal blocks will accept AWG 12, 14, 16, or 18 wire (2.5, 1.5, 1.0, or 0.75 sq mm ). Sizes 16 and 18 are preferred. System controller capability The 270 Series requires the Signature Loop Controller. Personality code 1: N/O alarm latching The 270 Series is factory assigned personality code 1 which configures the station for alarm latching operation.

PRODUCT INFORMATION
DESCRIPTION The Single Input Signal Module, Model SIGA-CC1, is a component of the Signature Series System. The SIGA-CC1 is an analog addressable device used to connect a supervised output circuit to the riser bus. The SIGA-CC1 does NOT provide supervision of the riser; the fire alarm panel must provide this function. Upon command from the loop controller, the SIGA-CC1 connects the output circuit to the riser input which may be 24 VDC to operate polarized audible and visual signals, 25V or 70V to operate audio evacuation circuits, or telephone audio. One (1) device address is required. The actual function performed by the SIGA-CC1 is determined by the personality code that is downloaded to the module by the Signature Loop Controller during system configuration. The loop controller assigns an address to the SIGA-CC1 automatically or a custom address can be assigned to the module via laptop computer; no addressing switches are used. Diagnostic LEDs provide visible indication of the status of the module when the cover plate is removed.

The SIGA-CC1 can be mounted in a North American 2-1/2" (64 mm) deep 2-gang box, standard 4" square 1-1/2" (38 mm) deep box, or European 100 mm square box. The terminal blocks will accept #14, 16 or 18 AWG wire (1.5 mm 2 , 1.0 mm2 , 0.75 mm2 ). Sizes #16 and #18 are preferred. 1) SYSTEM CONTROLLER COMPATIBILITY The SIGA-CC1 requires the Signature Loop Controller. The loop controller downloads the personality code which determines how the module will operate. The following personality codes may be downloaded to the SIGA-CC1: Personality Code 5: Riser Selector (Single Input) The SIGA-CC1 is factory assigned personality code 5. Personality code 5 configures the SIGA-CC1 as a Signal Power (24VDC) or Audio Evacuation (25 or 70 V) Riser Selector. Since the SIGA-CC1 is NOT being used for telephone audio under this personality code, the ring-tone generator is DISABLED. The output circuit is monitored for open or shorted wiring. If a short exists, the control panel inhibits the activation of the audible/visual signal circuit, so the riser is not connected to the wiring fault. Personality Code 6: Riser Selector (Single Input), Ring-Tone Personality code 6 configures the SIGA-CC1 as a Telephone Riser Selector. When a telephone handset is plugged into its jack or lifted from its hook, the SIGA-CC1 will generate its own ring-tone signal (a separate ring-tone riser is NOT needed). The module sends this signal to the control panel to indicate that an off-hook condition is present, and waits for the system operator to respond to the call. When the system operator responds, the ring-tone signal is DISABLED.

WARNINGS
This module will NOT operate without electrical power. As fires frequently cause power interruption, we suggest you discuss further safeguards with your local fire protection specialist. This module does NOT support conventional smoke detectors.

PRODUCT INFORMATION
Description: The Intelligent Fixed-Temperature Heat Detector (HFS) is a component of the Signature Series. This intelligent analog device contains a fixed-temperature heat sensor to detect heat from fire. The heat sensor monitors the temperature of the air in its surroundings and the detector analyzes the data and determines whether an alarm should be initiated. A heat detector by itself, however, does NOT provide life safety protection. For life safety situations, a heat detector should be used in conjunction with ionization or photoelectric smoke detectors or a combination thereof. LEDs: The HFS provides two LEDs that indicate the status of the detector. Normal: Green LED flashes Alarm: Red LED flashes Standalone alarm: Green and red LEDs glow continuously Electronic addressing: The loop controller automatically assigns addresses to the detectors. Custom addresses can be assigned to the detectors via laptop computer. No addressing switches are used. Stand-alone operation: If isolated from the loop controller, the detector alarms when heat levels exceed a preset value. See the applicable control panel manual to verify standalone capabilities. Self-diagnostics: The HFS contains a microprocessor capable of performing comprehensive self-diagnostic tests and storing results. Details such as hours of operation, last maintenance date, sensitivity values, and number of alarms and troubles are stored in nonvolatile memory. These statistics may be retrieved and reviewed as desired.

PRODUCT INFORMATION
DESCRIPTION The Isolator Module, Model SIGA-IM is a component of the Signature Series System. The SIGA-IM is an analog addressable device used to protect a Class A data line from total collapse due to wire to wire short circuits. The SIGA-IM monitors line voltages and opens the data line when a short is detected. A short will be isolated between the two SIGA-IMs located electrically closest to the short. The number of SIGA-IMs that can be installed on a Signature Data Circuit (SDC) is limited only by the number of detector addresses available on that SDC. NORMAL ISOLATOR OPERATION 1. A short on the line causes all isolators to open within 23 msec. 2. At 10 msec intervals, beginning on both sides nearest the loop controller, the isolators close to provide the next isolator down the line with power. 3. When the isolator next to the short closes, it reopens within 10 msec. ELECTRONIC ADDRESSING The loop controller automatically assigns the address to the SIGA-IM or a custom address can be assigned to the isolator modules via laptop computer, no addressing switches are used. One (1) detector address is required for each SIGA-IM. Refer to the appropriate manufacturer's documentation for automatic and custom addressing. STANDALONE ISOLATOR OPERATION In the event of a communications failure with the Signature controller, the SIGA-IM will isolate any existing short condition and remain open until communications with the Signature controller is restored and the shorted condition is removed. Refer to the applicable fire alarm control panel manual to verify standalone capabilities. MOUNTING The SIGA-IM can be mounted in a North American 2-1/2" (64 mm) deep 2gang box, standard 4" square 1-1/2" (38 mm) deep box, or European 100 mm square box. The terminal blocks will accept #14, 16 or 18 AWG wire (1.5 mm 2, 1.0 mm 2, 0.75 mm2 ). Sizes #16 and #18 are preferred.

APPLICATION INFORMATION
In a Class A circuit, a short will be isolated between the two (2) SIGA-IM modules located electrically closest to the short as shown in the two configurations below.

PRODUCT INFORMATION
Description: The Intelligent 4D Multisensor Smoke Detectors (IPHS and IPHSB) are components of the Signature Series. This intelligent analog device contains ionization and photoelectric smoke sensors and provides an additional heat sensing element for detecting fire. The detector analyzes the data from all three sensors and determines whether an alarm should be initiated. The detector continuously monitors changes in sensitivity and notifies the loop controller of its condition. It issues a dirty-sensor warning when it reaches a preset limit. This notifies the operator of the need for service while the detector still operates within UL/ULC limits. LEDs: The IPHS and IPHSB have two LEDs that show status. Normal: Green LED flashes Alarm/active: Red LED flashes Standalone alarm: Green and red LEDs glow continuously Electronic Addressing: The loop controller automatically assigns addresses to the detectors. Custom addresses can be assigned to the detectors via laptop computer. No addressing switches are used. Stand-Alone Operation: If isolated from the loop controller, the detector alarms when smoke levels exceed a preset value. See the applicable control panel manual to verify standalone capability. Self-Diagnostics: The detectors contain a microprocessor capable of performing comprehensive self-diagnostics and storing the results. Details such as hours of operation, last maintenance date, sensitivity values, and number of alarms and troubles are stored in nonvolatile memory. These statistics may be retrieved and reviewed as desired.

PROGRAMMING
Personality Code 12: N/O Active - Latching (Class A) Personality code 12 operates the same as personality code 9, but the contact closure causes an active status, which latches at the module, instead of an alarm status. Personality code 12 typically monitors supervisory and tamper switches. Personality Code 15: Signal Output (Class A) Personality code 15 configures the SIGA-MAB for the connection of a Class A NAC output (for example: bells, speakers, and strobes). Personality Code 16: Signal Output (Class B) Personality code 16 configures the SIGA-MAB for the connection of a Class B NAC output (for example: bells, speakers, and strobes). Note: Data entry may define this module as a SIGA-UM. Make sure the personality code for channel 2 remains 00.

Personality Code 1: N/O Alarm Latching (Class B) Personality code 1 configures the SIGA-MAB for Class B normally-open dry contact initiating devices (for example: pull-stations and heat detectors). When the N/O input contact of an initiating device closes, an alarm signal is sent to the Signature controller and the alarm condition is latched at the module. This is the default personality code assigned by the factory. Personality Code 2: N/O Alarm Delayed Latching (Class B) Personality code 2 operates like personality code 1, but the contact must remain closed for approximately 16 seconds before an alarm status is generated. Personality code 2 is only used with non-retarded waterflow alarm switches. Personality Code 3: N/O Active Non-latching (Class B) Personality code 3 typically monitors equipment like fans, dampers, and doors. A contact closure causes an active status, which does not latch at the module, instead of an alarm status. Personality Code 4: N/O Active Latching (Class B) Personality code 4 typically monitors supervisory and tamper switches. A contact closure causes an active status, which latches at the module, instead of an alarm status. Personality Code 9: N/O Alarm Latching (Class A) Personality code 9 configures the SIGA-MAB for the connection of Class A normally-open dry contact initiating devices (for example: pull stations and heat detectors). When the N/O input contact of an initiating device closes, an alarm signal is sent to the Signature controller and the alarm condition is latched at the module. Personality Code 10: N/O Alarm Delayed Latching (Class A) Personality code 10 operates the same as personality code 9, but the contact must remain closed for approximately 16 seconds before an alarm status is generated. Personality code 10 typically monitors waterflow alarm switches. Personality Code 11: N/O Active - Non-latching (Class A) Personality code 11 operates like personality code 9, but the contact closure causes an active status, which does not latch at the module, instead of an alarm status. Personality code 11 typically monitors equipment like fans, dampers, and doors.

PRODUCT INFORMATION
Description The SIGA-MCC1 Single Input Signal Module is an addressable Signature Series component used to connect a supervised output circuit to the signal riser. The SIGA-MCC1 does not supervise the riser; the fire alarm panel must provide this function. Upon command from the Signature controller, the SIGA-MCC1 connects the output circuit to the riser input, which may be: 24 Vdc to operate polarized audible and visual appliances, 25 Vac or 70 Vac to operate audio evacuation circuits, or telephone audio. The personality code downloaded to the module by the Signature controller during system configuration determines the function performed by the SIGA-MCC1. The SIGA-MCC1 requires one module address, which the Signature controller assigns to it. A custom address can be assigned to the module via the SIGA-PRO. No addressing switches are used. Note: See the programming information, below, for definitions of the personality codes. Diagnostic LEDs provide a visible indication of module status. A flashing green LED indicates normal status. A flashing red LED indicates the alarm/active state. The SIGA-MCC1 plugs into any available module space on a SIGAUIO(R) series motherboard, and captive screws secure it to the motherboard.

PROGRAMMING

Disconnect power to the cabinets before removing or installing components. Failure to do so may result in serious injury or loss of life.

Personality Code 5: Riser Selector (Single Input) Personality code 5 configures the SIGA-MCC1 as a signal power (24 Vdc) or audio evacuation (25 or 70 Vac) riser selector, and disables the ring-tone generator. The output is monitored for open or shorted wiring. If a short exists, the control panel inhibits the activation of the audible/visual signal circuit, so the riser is not connected to the wiring fault. Personality Code 6: Riser Selector (Single Input), Ring-tone Personality code 6 configures the SIGA-MCC1 as a telephone riser selector. When a telephone handset is plugged into its jack or lifted from its hook, the SIGA-MCC1 will generate its own ring-tone signal. A separate ring-tone riser is not needed. The module sends a signal to the control panel to indicate that an off-hook condition is present, and waits for the system operator to respond to the call. When the system operator responds, the ring-tone signal is disabled and the telephone is connected to the telephone riser. Note: Data entry may define this module as a SIGA-CC1.

Caution!
Observe static-sensitive material handling practices.

PRODUCT INFORMATION
DESCRIPTION The SIGA-MCT2 Dual Input Module is an addressable Signature Series component used to connect up to two Class B normally-open dry contact initiating device circuits (IDCs) to a Signature controller. The Signature controller downloads the personality code to the SIGAMCT2 during system configuration to determine its application: alarm, supervisory, or monitor. The SIGA-MCT2 requires two addresses, which the Signature controller assigns to it automatically. A custom address can be assigned to the module via the SIGA-PRO. No addressing switches are used. Note: See the programming information, below, for the definitions of the personality codes. Diagnostic LEDs provide visible indication of module status. A flashing green LED indicates normal status. A flashing red LED indicates the alarm/active state. The SIGA-MCT2 plugs in any available module space on a SIGA-UIO(R) series motherboard, and captive screws secure it to the motherboard. All wiring connections are made to terminals on the motherboard. Standby Current Activated Current

Personality Code 1: N/O Alarm Latching (Class B) Personality code 1 configures the SIGA-MCT2 for Class B normally-open dry contact initiating devices (for example: pull-stations and heat detectors). When the N/O input contact of an initiating device closes, an alarm signal is sent to the Signature controller and the alarm condition is latched at the module. This is the default personality code assigned by the factory. Personality Code 2: N/O Alarm Delayed Latching (Class B) Personality code 2 operates like personality code 1, but the contact must remain closed for approximately 16 seconds before an alarm status is generated. Personality code 2 is only used with non-retarded waterflow alarm switches. Personality Code 3: N/O Active Non-latching (Class B) Personality code 3 typically monitors equipment like fans, dampers, and doors. A contact closure causes an active status, which does not latch at the module, instead of an alarm status. Personality Code 4: N/O Active Latching (Class B) Personality code 4 typically monitors supervisory and tamper switches. A contact closure causes an active status, which latches at the module, instead of an alarm status.

Warning!
Disconnect power to the cabinets before removing or installing components. Failure to do so may result in serious injury or loss of life.

Caution!
Observe static-sensitive material handling practices.

PRODUCT INFORMATION
Description: The Intelligent 3D Multisensor Smoke Detector (PHS) is part of the Signature Series. This intelligent analog device contains a photoelectric smoke sensor and a fixed-temperature heat sensor. The detector analyzes the data from both sensing devices and determines whether an alarm should be initiated. The detector continuously monitors changes in sensitivity and notifies the loop controller of its condition. It issues a dirty-sensor warning when it reaches a preset limit. This notifies the operator of the need for service while the detector still operates within UL/ULC limits. LEDs: The PHS has two LEDs that show its status. Normal: Green LED flashes Alarm/active: Red LED flashes Standalone alarm: Green and red LEDs glow continuously Electronic Addressing: The loop controller automatically assigns addresses to the detectors. Custom addresses can be assigned to the detectors via laptop computer. No addressing switches are used. Stand-Alone Operation: If isolated from the loop controller, the detector alarms when smoke levels exceed a preset value. See the applicable control panel manual to verify standalone capability. Self-Diagnostics: The PHS contains a microprocessor capable of performing comprehensive self-diagnostics and storing the results. Details such as hours of operation, last maintenance date, sensitivity values, and number of alarms and troubles are stored in non-volatile memory. These can be retrieved and reviewed as desired.

WARNINGS
1) This detector will NOT operate without electrical power. As fires frequently cause power interruption, discuss further safeguards with your local fire protection specialist. 2) This detector will NOT sense fires in areas where smoke cannot reach the detector. Smoke from fires in walls, roofs, or on the opposite side of closed doors may not reach the detector. 3) Photoelectric detectors have a wide range of sensing capabilities, and are best suited for detecting slow, smoldering fires. The heat sensor in this device provides a source of supplemental information to that provided by the photoelectric smoke sensor. The heat sensor by itself does NOT provide life safety protection. 4) Maintenance (regular or selected) should be planned in accordance with the requirements of the Authority Having Jurisdiction to ensure proper operation. Refer to NFPA 72 and ULC Standard CAN 536. 5) The bright orange-colored dust cover (supplied) MUST remain on the detector during installation, and then be removed prior to

Description: The Intelligent Photoelectric Smoke Detector (PS) is a component of the Signature Series. This intelligent analog device uses an optical sensing chamber to detect smoke. The detector analyzes the sensor data to determine when an alarm is initiated. The detector continuously monitors changes in sensitivity due to the environment (e.g. dirt, smoke, temperature, humidity) and notifies the loop controller of its condition. The PS issues a dirty sensor warning when it reaches its preset limit. This notifies the operator of the need for service while the detector is still operating within UL/ULC limits. LEDs: The PS provides two LEDs that show its status. Normal: green LED flashes Alarm/active: red LED flashes Standalone alarm: both LEDs glow continuously Electronic addressing: The loop controller automatically assigns addresses to the detectors. Custom addresses can be assigned to the detectors via laptop computer. No addressing switches are used. Standalone operation: If unable to communicate with the loop controller, the detector alarms when smoke levels exceed its preset value. Refer to the applicable fire alarm control panel manual for verification of standalone capabilities. Self-diagnostics: PS contains a microprocessor capable of performing comprehensive self-diagnostics and storing the results. Details such as hours of operation, last maintenance date, sensitivity values, and number of alarms and troubles are stored in non-volatile memory. These can be retrieved and reviewed as desired.

6) The bright orange-colored dust cover (supplied) MUST remain on the detector during installation, and then be removed prior to operation. The dust cover is NOT a substitute for removing the detector during new construction or heavy remodeling. 7) Under normal conditions, this unit does not require calibration. However, if calibration is required, return to: GS Building Systems Corporation 5 North Main Street Pittsfield, ME 04967-1500 Refer to the Technical Bulletin for additional information and cleaning instructions. 8) Test the detector with Smoke Detector Tester and Model 1490 Adapter/Tube Accessory, manufactured by Home Safeguard, Inc.

INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS
1) Push a small screwdriver into the tamper-resist access slot while rotating the detector counterclockwise to remove the detector. Note: You can permanently disable the tamper-resist mechanism by breaking and removing the plastic lever arm from the base. 2) See the Technical Bulletin for installation guidelines. 3) Install and wire the base as described in the installation sheet supplied with the base. 4) Peel off the removable serial number label from the detector and apply it to the appropriate location in the serial number log book. 5) Connect the detector to the base by rotating the detector clockwise until it snaps into the locked position. 6) NFPA code requires that a calibrated sensitivity test be performed upon completion of the original installation and following any modifications or additions to the system. The Signature Series can perform this test and generate a system sensitivity report. 7) In Canada your installation must meet the requirements of CAN/ULC-S524-M91: Standard for the Installation of Fire Alarm Systems, and the local Authority Having Jurisdiction. 8) Before initial testing, remove the dust cover from the detector and notify the proper authorities that the fire alarm system is undergoing maintenance and will be temporarily out of service.

WARNINGS
INSTALLATION SHEET

1) This detector will NOT operate without electrical power. As fires frequently cause power interruption, discuss further safeguards with your local fire protection specialist. 2) This detector will NOT sense fires in areas where smoke cannot reach the detector. Smoke from fires in walls, roofs, or on the opposite side of closed doors may not reach the detector. 3) Photoelectric detectors have a wide range of sensing capabilities, but are best suited for detecting slow, smoldering fires. 4) Maintenance (regular or selected) should be planned in accordance with the requirements of the Authority Having Jurisdiction to ensure proper operation. Refer to NFPA 72 and ULC Standard CAN 536. 5) To ensure proper operation, store the detector within the recommended ranges. Allow the detector to stabilize to room temperature before applying power.

PRODUCT INFORMATION
DESCRIPTION The Universal Class A/B Module, Model SIGA-UM, is a component of the Signature Series System. The SIGA-UM is an analog addressable device used to connect any one of the following: a) Dual Input Class B Initiating Device Circuit (IDC) b) Class A or B Initiating Device Circuit (IDC) c) Class A or B Notification Appliance Circuit (NAC) d) Class A or B Circuit for 2-Wire Smoke Detectors and Initiating Devices on one circuit e) Form "C" Dry Contact Relay The actual function performed by the SIGA-UM is determined by the personality code downloaded to the module from the Signature Loop Controller during system configuration. The loop controller assigns addresses to the SIGA-UM automatically or custom addresses can be assigned to the module via laptop computer; no addressing switches are used. Two (2) device addresses are required. Diagnostic LEDs provide visual indication of the status of the module when the cover plate is removed. Status Normal Alarm/Active LED Indicator Green LED flashes. Red LED flashes. Personality Code 10: N/O Alarm Delayed Latching (Class A) Personality code 10 operates the same as personality code 9 except that contact closure must be maintained for approximately 16 seconds before an alarm status is generated. Personality code 10 is typically used with waterflow alarm switches. Personality Code 11: N/O Active - Non-latching (Class A) Personality code 11 operates the same as personality code 9 except that contact closure causes an active instead of an alarm status, and does NOT latch at the module. Personality code 11 is typically used for monitoring fans, dampers, doors, etc. Personality Code 12: N/O Active - Latching (Class A) Personality code 12 operates the same as personality code 9 except that contact closure causes an active instead of an alarm status, which is latched at the module. Personality code 12 is typically used for monitoring supervisory and tamper switches. Personality Code 13: 2-Wire Smoke - Non-Verified (Class B) Personality code 13 configures the SIGA-UM for monitoring of 2-wire conventional smoke detectors (that do NOT require alarm verification) and normally-open contact initiating devices (e.g., pull-stations, heat detectors, etc.) on the same circuit. Personality Code 14: 2-Wire Smoke - Verified (Class B) Personality code 14 configures the SIGA-UM for monitoring of 2-wire conventional smoke detectors (that require alarm verification). Normallyopen contact initiating devices may NOT be mixed with 2-wire conventional smoke detectors. Personality Code 15: Signal Output (Class A) Personality code 15 configures the SIGA-UM for connection of a Class A output notification appliance circuit (NAC). Personality code 15 is typically used to control bells, speakers, etc. Personality Code 16: Signal Output Module (Class B) Personality code 16 configures the SIGA-UM for connection of a Class B output notification appliance circuit (NAC). Personality code 16 is typically used to control bells, speakers, etc. Personality Code 20: 2-Wire Smoke - Non-Verified (Class A) Personality code 20 operates the same as personality code 13, except that wiring is Class A. Personality Code 21: 2-Wire Smoke - Verified (Class A) Personality code 21 operates the same as personality code 14, except that wiring is Class A.

The SIGA-UM may be mounted in a North American 2-1/2" (64 mm) deep 2gang box, standard 4" square 1-1/2" (38 mm) deep box, or European 100 mm square box. The terminal blocks will accept #14, #16, or #18 AWG wire (1.5 mm 2, 1.0 mm 2, 0.75 mm2 ). Sizes #16 and #18 are preferred. JUMPER SETUP Jumper JP1 is factory installed on pins 1 and 2 for NORMAL operation. In order to operate the SIGA-UM as a Form "C" dry relay contact to control external appliances (door closers, fans, dampers, etc.), JP1 must be moved to pins 2 and 3 and personality code 8 must be downloaded to the module. SYSTEM/CONTROLLER COMPATIBILITY The SIGA-UM is factory assigned personality code 0 to input channels 1 and 2. The SIGA-UM requires the Signature Loop Controller. The loop controller downloads a user-selectable personality code which determines how the module will operate. The following personality codes may be downloaded to the SIGA-UM: Personality Code 1: N/O Alarm Latching (Class B) Personality code 1 configures input 1 and/or 2 of the SIGA-UM for Class B normally-open dry contact initiating devices (e.g., pull-stations, heat detectors, etc.). When the N/O input contact of an initiating device is closed, an Alarm signal is sent to the loop controller and the alarm condition is latched at the module. Personality Code 2: N/O Alarm Delayed Latching (Class B) Personality code 2 operates the same as personality code 1 except that contact closure must be maintained for approximately 16 seconds before an alarm status is generated. Personality code 2 is only for use with nonretarded waterflow alarm switches. Personality Code 3: N/O Active - Non-Latching (Class B) A contact closure causes an active instead of an alarm status and does NOT IMPORTANT NOTE: latch at the module. Personality code 3 is typically used for monitoring fans, TRANSIENT PROTECTION dampers, doors, etc. Personality Code 4: N/O Active Latching (Class B) A contact closure causes an active instead of an alarm status which is latched at the module. Personality code 4 is typically used for monitoring supervisory and tamper switches. Personality Code 8: Dry Contact Output Personality code 8 configures the SIGA-UM as a Form "C" Dry Relay Contact to control external appliances (door closers, fans, dampers, etc.) or equipment shutdown. NOTE: Jumper JP1 MUST be moved to pins 2 and 3 for dry contact operation. Personality Code 9: N/O Alarm Latching (Class A) Personality code 9 configures the SIGA-UM for connection of Class A normally-open dry contact initiating devices (e.g., pull-stations, heat detectors, etc.). When the N/O input contact of an initiating device is closed, an alarm signal is sent to the loop controller and the alarm condition is latched at the module.
