Fire Alarm System Limitations


While a fire alarm system may lower insurance rates, it is not a substitute for fire insurance!
An automatic fire alarm systemtypically made up of smoke detec-

tors, heat detectors, manual pull stations, audible warning devices,


and a fire alarm control panel with remote notification capabilitycan
provide early warning of a developing fire. Such a system, however,
does not assure protection against property damage or loss of life
resulting from a fire.
The Manufacturer recommends that smoke and/or heat detectors be
located throughout a protected premise following the recommendations of the current edition of the National Fire Protection Association
Standard 72 (NFPA 72), manufacturer's recommendations, State and
local codes, and the recommendations contained in the Guide for
Proper Use of System Smoke Detectors, which is made available at
no charge to all installing dealers. These documents can be found at
http://www.systemsensor.com/html/applicat.html.
A study by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (an agency
of the United States government) indicated that smoke detectors may
not go off in as many as 35% of all fires. While fire alarm systems are
designed to provide early warning against fire, they do not guarantee
warning or protection against fire. A fire alarm system may not provide
timely or adequate warning, or simply may not function, for a variety
of reasons:

bedrooms), smoking in bed, and violent explosions (caused by escaping gas, improper storage of flammable materials, etc.).
Heat detectors do not sense particles of combustion and alarm only
when heat on their sensors increases at a predetermined rate or
reaches a predetermined level. Rate-of-rise heat detectors may be
subject to reduced sensitivity over time. For this reason, the rate-ofrise feature of each detector should be tested at least once per year
by a qualified fire protection specialist. Heat detectors are designed to
protect property, not life.
IMPORTANT! Smoke detectors must be installed in the same room

as the control panel and in rooms used by the system for the connection of alarm transmission wiring, communications, signaling, and/or
power. If detectors are not so located, a developing fire may damage
the alarm system, crippling its ability to report a fire.
Audible warning devices such as bells may not alert people if these

devices are located on the other side of closed or partly open doors or
are located on another floor of a building. Any warning device may fail
to alert people with a disability or those who have recently consumed
drugs, alcohol or medication. Please note that:

Strobes can, under certain circumstances, cause seizures in people


with conditions such as epilepsy.

Studies have shown that certain people, even when they hear a fire
alarm signal, do not respond or comprehend the meaning of the signal.
It is the property owner's responsibility to conduct fire drills and other
training exercise to make people aware of fire alarm signals and
instruct them on the proper reaction to alarm signals.

Particles of combustion or smoke from a developing fire may not


reach the sensing chambers of smoke detectors because:

In rare instances, the sounding of a warning device can cause temporary or permanent hearing loss.

Barriers such as closed or partially closed doors, walls, or chimneys


may inhibit particle or smoke flow.

A fire alarm system will not operate without any electrical power. If

Smoke particles may become cold, stratify, and not reach the ceiling
or upper walls where detectors are located.

Smoke particles may be blown away from detectors by air outlets.

Smoke particles may be drawn into air returns before reaching the
detector.

Smoke detectors may not sense fire where smoke cannot reach the

detectors such as in chimneys, in or behind walls, on roofs, or on the


other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors also may not sense a fire
on another level or floor of a building. A second-floor detector, for
example, may not sense a first-floor or basement fire.

AC power fails, the system will operate from standby batteries only for
a specified time and only if the batteries have been properly maintained and replaced regularly.
Equipment used in the system may not be technically compatible
with the control panel. It is essential to use only equipment listed for
service with your control panel.

The amount of smoke present may be insufficient to alarm smoke


detectors. Smoke detectors are designed to alarm at various levels of
smoke density. If such density levels are not created by a developing
fire at the location of detectors, the detectors will not go into alarm.

Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a premise to a

Smoke detectors, even when working properly, have sensing limitations. Detectors that have photo-electronic sensing chambers tend to
detect smoldering fires better than flaming fires, which have little visible smoke. Detectors that have ionizing-type sensing chambers tend
to detect fast-flaming fires better than smoldering fires. Because fires
develop in different ways and are often unpredictable in their growth,
neither type of detector is necessarily best and a given type of detector may not provide adequate warning of a fire.

The most common cause of fire alarm malfunction is inadequate

Smoke detectors cannot be expected to provide adequate warning of


fires caused by arson, children playing with matches (especially in

central monitoring station may be out of service or temporarily disabled. For added protection against telephone line failure, backup
radio transmission systems are recommended.
maintenance. To keep the entire fire alarm system in excellent working order, ongoing maintenance is required per the manufacturer's
recommendations, and UL and NFPA standards. At a minimum, the
requirements of NFPA 72 shall be followed. Environments with large
amounts of dust, dirt or high air velocity require more frequent maintenance. A maintenance agreement should be arranged through the
local manufacturer's representative. Maintenance should be scheduled monthly or as required by National and/or local fire codes and
should be performed by authorized professional fire alarm installers
only. Adequate written records of all inspections should be kept.

Installation Precautions
Adherence to the following will aid in problem-free installation with long-term reliability:
WARNING - Several different sources of power can be connected to
the fire alarm control panel. Disconnect all sources of power before

servicing. The control unit and associated equipment may be damaged by removing and/or inserting cards, modules, or interconnecting
cables while the unit is energized. Do not attempt to install, service,
or operate this unit until this manual is read and understood.
CAUTION - System Reacceptance Test after Software Changes. To

ensure proper system operation, this product must be tested in accordance with NFPA 72 after any programming operation or change in
site-specific software. Reacceptance testing is required after any
change, addition or deletion of system components, or after any modification, repair or adjustment to system hardware or wiring.
All components, circuits, system operations, or software functions
known to be affected by a change must be 100% tested. In addition,
to ensure that other operations are not inadvertently affected, at least
10% of initiating devices that are not directly affected by the change,
up to a maximum of 50 devices, must also be tested and proper system operation verified.
This system meets NFPA requirements for operation at 0C to 49C

(32F to 120F) and at a relative humidity 93% 2% RH (non-condensing) at 32C 2C (90F 3F). However, the useful life of the
system's standby batteries and the electronic components may be
adversely affected by extreme temperature ranges and humidity.
Therefore, it is recommended that this system and all peripherals be
installed in an environment with a nominal room temperature of 1527 C/60-80 F.
Verify that wire sizes are adequate for all initiating and indicating
device loops. Most devices cannot tolerate more than a 10% I.R.
drop from the specified device voltage.

Like all solid state electronic devices this system may operate erratically or can be damaged when subjected to lightning-induced transients. Although no system is completely immune from lightning
transients and interferences, proper grounding will reduce susceptibility. Overhead or outside aerial wiring is not recommended, due to an
increased susceptibility to nearby lightning strikes. Consult with the
Technical Services if any problems are anticipated or encountered.
Disconnect AC power and batteries prior to removing or inserting circuit boards. Failure to do so can damage circuits.
Remove all electronic assemblies prior to any drilling, filing, reaming,

or punching of the enclosure. When possible, make all cable entries


from the sides or rear. Before making modifications, verify that they
will not interfere with battery, transformer, and printed circuit board
location.
Do not tighten screw terminals more than 9 in-lbs. Over-tightening

may damage threads, resulting in reduced terminal contact pressure


and difficulty with screw terminal removal.
Though designed to last many years, system components can fail at
any time. This system contains static-sensitive components. Always
ground yourself with a proper wrist strap before handling any circuits
so that static charges are removed from the body. Use static-suppressive packaging to protect electronic assemblies removed from
the unit.
Follow the instructions in the installation, operating, and program-

ming manuals. These instructions must be followed to avoid damage


to the control panel and associated equipment. FACP operation and
reliability depend upon proper installation by authorized personnel.

2.3.4 Zone Mapping and Control by Event


The VESDA-HLI-GW can be configured for 10 general zones per VESDA device. Zones 0 to 999 are
supported with Zone 0 being a general alarm zone that is active if any detectors are in the FIRE1 or FIRE2
state. The zones have the following characteristics:
All Zones activated by the gateway remain active until there is a reset issued from the NFN. At that
time, all the zones related to detectors being reset are cleared.
A zone remains active as long as any detectors assigned to that zone are active.
A zone goes into trouble state when any of its detectors become disabled or in trouble. The zone
remains in a troubled state until all of its detectors are enabled and not in trouble.
When the detector is disabled, zones can go off (if the point goes off), but cannot go on (if the point
goes on). Note that enabling a point may also result in zones going active, if the point went active
while it was disabled.
Disabling of zones is not supported by the VESDA-HLI-GW. Zone disables are ignored. Points must
be disabled individually.
Force On/Off of zones is not supported.
Read Status of zones is supported.
The Table 2.1, Zone Setting/Alarm State Relationships describes when zones are activated for each zone
setting for each alarm state. An X indicates that the zone will be activated.
There are two labels, the 20-byte standard label and the 12-byte custom label. The Network Control
Annunciator (NCA) displays them along with the events. There are 10 slots for Cooperative Control By
Event (CCBE) per detector. Each slot can be set to one of the zones 1-999. In the Value column of the slot
there is a selection for what type of event will cause the one to go active. The possible types of events are
Alert, Action, Fire1, Fire2 and Any. Zones are cumulative in the given order. For example, an Action event
triggers the Action and Alert zones. A Fire1 event triggers the Fire1, Action and Alert zones. A Fire 2
event triggers all zones.

NOTE: The procedures in this appendix require the use of a USB flash memory drive.

A.1 Viewing Existing Settings


1.

Connect the flash drive to the VESDA-HLI-GW.

2.

Reboot the gateway.


A file is created that matches the configured IP address of the gateway, followed by the extension .txt
(e.g., 192.168.1.2.txt). If the file already exists on the drive, it will be altered to match the Gateway
configuration. The file contains additional information such as the MAC address of the gateway.

3.

Connect the drive to a PC and view the files.


The flash drive should contain a file that matches the configured IP address of the gateway, followed by
the extension .txt (e.g., 192.168.1.2.txt). If the file already exists on the drive, it has been altered to
match the gateway configuration. The file contains additional information such as the MAC address of
the gateway.

A.2 Resetting Factory Default Settings


1.

Connect the flash drive to a PC and create a file named default.ldc. The contents of the file is not
significant; however, ensure that the file does not have an additional hidden file extension. This file will
be automatically deleted from the flash drive.

2.

Eject the flash drive from the PC.

3.

Disconnect power from the gateway.

4.

Disconnect the communication cable to the Gateway USB port (if present) and connect the flash drive.

5.

Reconnect the 24 VDC power supply to the gateway.

6.

After approximately one minute, disconnect the flash drive from the USB port and (if necessary)
reconnect the cable removed in Step 4.

7.

Connect the flash drive to the PC and verify that the file named 192.168.12.txt is on the drive.
If the file is on the flash drive, the reset has been accomplished.
If the file is not on the flash drive
The flash drive may not have been connected during the reboot period or was removed early.
The flash drive is not seen as a valid drive by the hardware.
A software error has occurred and technical support may need to be contacted.
