Section I
System Overview
SYSTEM DESCRIPTION
The Eagle Quantum System serves multiple roles in the
monitoring and protection of hazardous areas. It is a
fire detection and extinguishing agent release system
combined with a hazardous gas monitoring system,
integrated on a fault tolerant digital communication
network. The Eagle Quantum system utilizes an
advanced distributed architecture that is equally adept
at monitoring analog process signals like combustible
or toxic gas concentrations, and discrete contact
closure type devices such as manual fire alarm call
boxes and heat detectors, as well as Det-Tronics
optical flame detection. This sensor information is then
transmitted to the control unit to execute the fire
suppression logic, to control agent release, signaling,
and annunciation outputs, and to communicate with
external operator interface systems for configuration
and monitoring.

that perform all the communication, command, and


control functions for the system. It includes all the
required operator interface controls for a fire alarm
system (silence, acknowledge, reset, isolate),
annunciation relays, a local information display, and
communication interfaces for computer based
configuration and monitoring of the system.

If a Fire Alarm is detected by a Flame Detector or


Initiating Device Circuit (IDC), the affected node will
send a special Acknowledged Exception Report (AER)
directly to the Logic Controller. The AER is transmitted
as soon as an alarm is detected to maximize system
performance. When the Logic Controller receives the
AER, it sends the originating node a message
acknowledging its receipt. If the node originating the
AER does not receive an acknowledgement, it will retransmit the AER until it receives an acknowledgement.
This exchange of messages is used to ensure that
critical messages are received at all appropriate
registers throughout the system.

LOCAL OUTPUT UNIT (LIOU)


The LIOU consists of a rack controlled by the LCU that
can hold up to six FenwalNet 2000 modules. These
modules allow the control of Notification Appliance
Circuits (NACs), fire suppression agent release (CO2,
Halon, FM200) using supervised relays, as well as
unsupervised relays for other needs.

Once the Logic Controller receives a Fire Alarm


message from a field device, fixed logic will activate
built-in annunciation circuits, which consist of both a
visible and audible alarm. The programmable logic
will execute any specified voting, timing, and/or zone
logic and subsequently activate the appropriate output
circuits for Notification Appliance Circuits (NACs), agent
release circuits, and unsupervised relay outputs.

THEORY OF OPERATION
During normal operation, each node on the network
monitors its attached sensor or other input, determines if
it has an alarm condition, analyzes its own health,
checks network integrity, and then packages up this
information for transmission to the communication
gateway, located in the LCU. This Standard Periodic
Report (SPR) contains 16 pieces of discrete
information on the status of the node and, where
applicable, also contains the analog value of its sensor.
At the time of node configuration, the report rate of the
SPR can be set to anywhere between 1 and 10
seconds.

The faceplate of the Logic Controller has two


pushbuttons. ACKNOWLEDGE will silence the built in
audible alarm and illuminate the Acknowledge LED
located on the faceplate next to the Acknowledge
pushbutton. SILENCE will silence selected NACs in
the field and illuminate the Silence LED located on the
faceplate next to the Silence pushbutton. The Logic
Controller also features a keyswitch to reset the system
after the event is over.

In the LCU the Communication Gateway collects all of


the incoming SPRs from the field devices and puts the
information into datatables. Datatables are organized
areas of memory in the gateway that can be read by
external host devices using one of the gateways serial
ports. If any of the SPRs indicate an out of tolerance
condition, the gateway will display this information on its
integrated faceplate display. The gateway also has four
programmable relays whose action can be
programmed to events in the SPRs of the monitored
nodes.

NETWORK OPERATION DURING A


FAULT CONDITION
The Eagle Quantum system utilizes a unique patented
technique for detecting problems in the communication
network wiring. This state-of-the-art feature minimizes
the possibility of a communication breakdown in the
event of a wiring fault in the communication loop and
can also serve as an aid in troubleshooting.
The communication network is constructed as a loop
that starts and ends at a pair of communication ports
located at the LCU. The nodes communicate with the
LCU over the LON/SLC as shown in Figure I-2.

In addition to SPRs, nodes used as a part of the fire


detection and suppression system, such as fire
detectors or Initiating Device Circuits (IDCs) interfaced
with heat detectors, manual call points, etc. send a
separate Standard Supervisory Report (SSR) to the
Logic Controller, located in the Local Control Unit. The
Logic Controller, which manages the fire suppression
logic, uses these SSR messages to verify that the nodes
used in the fire alarm and suppression logic are active
and able to communicate. If the Logic Controller does
not receive SSRs from a required node, it will
annunciate a trouble condition.

Each field device node contains both the hardware and


software necessary to isolate and re-route
communication in the event of a network wiring fault.
When a problem occurs somewhere within the network
wiring, the communication gateway located in the LCU
annunciates the fault, while the fault isolation circuitry in
the affected nodes isolates the section of the network
where the fault has occurred. Communication is

thereby ensured and will continue over the network.


See Figure I-3.

NODE 4

A single open or short on the LON/SLC will not affect


system communication between the field devices and
the gateway. System communication will continue until
the wiring problem can be repaired.

In the event of multiple wiring faults on the LON/SLC,


the nodes between the faults will continue to function,
but the faults will prevent them from communicating with
the gateway. See Figure I-4. In this example, nodes 1
to 4 communicate using one gateway port (path A) and
nodes 7 and 8 use the other gateway port (path B).
Nodes 5 and 6 are unable to report to the gateway
because they are isolated by the two wiring faults.

All Eagle Quantum field devices are designed so that a

on a loss of power to the node. This ensures network
integrity even when a node is down for service or has
been damaged. The Communication Gateway in the
LCU will report powered-down nodes as notcommunicating.

IMPORTANT
Since it is impossible to predict where a network
fault might occur or exactly what effect it will have
on actual system operation, it is important to
diagnose and repair any fault as soon as possible
after it is detected to ensure reliable system
operation.

Section II
Local Control Unit (LCU) and
Power Supplies

OPTIONAL LCU VERSIONS


An optional EQ2101LCU is available with provisions for
two 24 vdc power inputs. Two reliable and independent
24 vdc supplies, in accordance with ANSI/NFPA 72
section 1-5.2, must be supplied. If either of the supplies
is missing or a wiring problem occurs, a trouble
condition will be annunciated.

OVERVIEW
The Local Control Unit (LCU) is the heart of the Eagle
Quantum system. External host devices such as PLCs
or DCSs interface through the LCU, the fire detection
and releasing logic resides in the LCU, control of the
releasing, signaling, and annunciation outputs are
handled by the LCU, and the Local Operating
Network/Signaling Line Circuit (LON/SLC), through
which all field devices communicate, starts and ends its
loop at the LCU. Physically, the LCU consists of a three
slot rack style enclosure that houses the Communication
Gateway, Logic Controller, and Isolation Module. These
three modules plug into the backplane and are secured
with thumb screws. All external wiring is routed through
conduit entries at the bottom and sides of the unit. The
wiring terminals are protected by a removable cover.
The LCU can be installed in Class I, Division 2
hazardous locations. Refer to Appendix A (FMRC) and
Appendix B (CSA) for details.

Logic controllers can be added to the communication


network to segment it into logical groups. Up to four
logic controllers can be used on each network.
Auxiliary gateways can be added to provide additional
relays or serial port connections to PLCs or DCSs. Up to
three auxiliary gateways can be added to the Quantum
network. Gateways located outside the LCU can be
turned off without disrupting LON/SLC communication
with the LCU.

microprocessors and parallel processing techniques to
execute the logic used for fire suppression. Its wealth
of logical operators allow for the easy development of
nearly any imaginable type of cross-zone monitoring,
voting, and timed operations that might be needed in a
fire suppression system. The Logic Controller supports

DESCRIPTION
The Eagle Quantum Communication Gateway is used in
conjunction with Det-Tronics software to configure the
system as well as to provide information on an ongoing
basis to external systems such as PLCs and DCSs. It
also provides local display and four programmable
relay outputs. In addition, the gateway provides a
heartbeat signal used to test for LON/SLC integrity, to
provide time and date information to field devices, and
to monitor for the continued presence of all configured
field devices.

COMMUNICATION GATEWAY
The Eagle Quantum Communication Gateway
communicates through two serial links for configuration
and monitoring. This allows for device configuration
using a comprehensive set of Det-Tronics authored
software tools. The monitoring is provided to the
Operator Interface Station(s) (OIS) through Modbus or
Allen-Bradley compatible protocols. The gateway also
provides four programmable relays that can be used to
annunciate conditions being monitored by the devices
on the LON/SLC.

The gateway receives and stores the current status and


process variable information from all devices on the
Local Operating Network/Signaling Line Circuit
(LON/SLC) communication loop. It services all valid
requests by Modbus RTU masters and/or Allen-Bradley
DF1 masters that are received through its two host
interface serial ports. When acting as a Modbus RTU
master, the gateway will automatically transfer key
process variable and status information to a default or
user selected Modbus RTU slave address and register
offset.

ISOLATION MODULE
The Isolation Module protects the integrity of the
LON/SLC wiring by isolating shorts and monitoring for
ground faults. It also provides electrical isolation for the
two serial communication ports between the gateway
and host devices.

During normal operation the gateway produces a


periodic (250 millisecond) heartbeat signal on the
network, which is used by all field devices as a part of
their network fault isolation routine. Every fourth
heartbeat (1 second intervals) also includes a time
and date message that is used by the field devices for
logging calibration, alarm, and other events.

sensor corresponds to 0 to 25% oxygen. Sensor output
(measured in counts per second) is displayed for UV
and UV/IR detectors.

Automatic Diagnostics
The gateway features self-testing circuitry that
continuously checks for problems that could prevent
proper system response. The gateway performs three
forms of diagnostics: self-diagnostics, LON/SLC
diagnostics, and device diagnostics.

LEDS
Self-diagnostic tests monitor the condition of the
gateway. LON/SLC diagnostics check for shorts and
opens in the LON/SLC wiring. In the event of a
problem, the fault is annunciated in the gateway status
word and the gateway fault relay is activated.

Five faceplate LEDs are provided for indicating the


status of the gateway relays. When a relay is reset, the
corresponding LED is also reset.
RELAYS

For device diagnostics, the gateway provides a


watchdog timer for each configured device on the loop.
Each time the device reports to the gateway, the timer
accumulator is reset to zero and the timer starts over. If
a device does not respond before its watchdog timer
expires, the gateway sets the not communicating bit in
the status word for that device.

The communication gateway is provided with five


relays. Four of the relays are general purpose relays.
The fifth relay functions as a fault relay, responding only
to gateway or LON network faults. The relays have form
C contacts rated 5 amperes resistive at 30 vdc.
The specific function of the four general purpose relays
is programmable through Det-Tronics software. The
relays are selectable for latching or non-latching
operation and can be configured for normally energized
or de-energized operation.

Fault Tolerant Communication


Fault tolerance is provided by constructing the
LON/SLC as a loop that starts and ends at a pair of
network communication ports on the gateway. If a fault
occurs somewhere in the network wiring, fault isolation
circuitry in the communication modules isolates the
problem section of the network. When the gateway
detects the fault, it is immediately annunciated. The
gateway then reconfigures the network so data can be
transmitted to all devices.

CAUTION
When the relays are used as gas alarm outputs in
the non-latching mode, they must be connected to
another device that will perform the latching
function.
RESET PUSHBUTTON

This feature minimizes the possibility of a


communication breakdown in the event of an open or
short in the communication loop. A single open or short
on the LON/SLC will not affect system communication
performance. In the event of multiple opens or shorts,
only those detectors between the opens and shorts will
not be able to communicate with the LCU, even though
they will continue to function.

The programmable relays can be reset by pressing the


reset pushbutton or external reset (resetting all latching
relays) or by a command from the EagleVision NT
software (resetting individual relays). The reset function
resets the relay, regardless of the status of the initiating
device. This allows additional events to trigger the
same relay, even though the first device may still be in a
triggering mode.

DESCRIPTION
In the reset mode, normal operation is inhibited and a
reset signal is sent to the LIOU and field output devices.

The logic controller provides the control function for the


fire detection portion of the Eagle Quantum fire and gas
safety system. It monitors messages from the devices
on the loop that are configured to report to that
controller (up to 120 in combination) and generates the
appropriate output(s) in response to the input
conditions. The logic controller supports ANSI/NFPA 72
Class A, Style 7 communication with the field devices.

This mode is also used for programming. In the


program mode, normal operation is inhibited. This is
the only mode that allows configuration information to
be downloaded to the logic controller from the gateway.
When the program mode is exited, configuration
information is sent to the LIOU.
NOTE
If the key switch is left in the RESET position for
more than a second or if the logic controller is in
the Program mode, a Trouble condition will be
indicated.

The logic controller uses fixed logic to control the


faceplate display and onboard alarm, trouble and
supervisory outputs per ANSI/NFPA 72.
The logic controller also has programmable logic, which
allows it to be customized to perform complex logic
operations including voting and timing. It also
communicates with the output modules located in the
LIOU, controlling system functions such as alarm
signaling, agent release and relay actuation.

one of the inputs is active


fault condition such as an open input
circuit or not configured.

The amber LED is provided for factory diagnostic


purposes and is not used by the customer. Illumination
of the amber LED normally indicates a failure in the
communication chip. Replacement of the communication
module circuit board is required.

Inputs
Each IDC accepts two dry contact inputs for use with
devices such as relays, pushbuttons, key switches, etc.
The IDC supports ANSI/NFPA 72 Class B Style B
supervised input circuits (Class B Style C for IDCSC).

Alarm Log
The module tracks when either of its input circuits are
activated and will store these changes in non-volatile
memory. The time, date, and circuit number is stored
for the last eight events.

Each circuit requires its own end of line (EOL) resistor


for monitoring circuit continuity. Nominal resistance of
the resistor is 10 k ohms.

Enclosure

Inputs are software selectable in EagleVision NT to


actuate the alarm, trouble, or supervisory relays on the
LCU.

The explosion-proof, water-tight NEMA/Type 4X


enclosure is designed for use in a variety of hazardous
locations.

Outputs

EQ2200UV UV FLAME DETECTOR

The output of the device is a status message that is sent


to the gateway and logic controller in the Local Control
Unit along the LON/SLC. System response to the
message is determined at the time of configuration. The
IDC supports ANSI/NFPA 72 Class A, Style 7
communication with the LCU.

DESCRIPTION
The EQ2200UV Series UV Flame Detector contains a UV
sensor module and control circuitry in an explosionproof, watertight enclosure. The detector is equipped
with both automatic and manual optical integrity (oi) test
capability.

A Standard Periodic Report (SPR) is sent to the gateway


at the rate determined at the time of configuration.
When programmed for response to a fire alarm

Operating Mode

The output of the device is a status message that is sent


to the gateway and logic controller in the Local Control
Unit along the communication loop. System response
to the message is determined at the time of
configuration. The UV detector supports ANSI/NFPA 72
Class A, Style 7 communication with the LCU.

The operating mode determines the type of logic that


the UV flame detector will use for processing fire signals
(either standard or arc rejection).
ARC REJECTION MODE
The arc rejection mode (recommended) enables the
detector to prevent nuisance fire alarms caused by UV
from short-duration electrical arcs or electrostatic
discharge, while maintaining the ability to reliably detect
the UV given off by a flame. The arc rejection mode is
not recommended unless these false alarm sources are
present within the application to be protected. Typical
applications that benefit from arc rejection logic include
electrostatic coating processes and uncontrolled
environments where transient UV sources can be
present, such as many typical outdoor applications.

A Standard Periodic Report (SPR) is sent to the gateway


at the rate determined at the time of configuration.
When programmed for response to a fire alarm
condition, a special Acknowledged Exception Report
(AER) is immediately sent to the Logic Controller.
Addressability
Device identification is accomplished by setting
switches on an eight position DIP switch (valid address
range is 5 to 250).

STANDARD MODE
Alarm Log

Enclosure

In the standard processing mode, the detector output


(measured in counts per second) is compared to the
fire threshold (the sensitivity setting as described
below). If the radiant energy level from the fire exceeds
the selected alarm threshold level, the time delay
begins (if a time delay is selected). If the radiant energy
level from the fire remains above the selected sensitivity
level for the duration of the time delay, the fire alarm
output is activated. In every application, it is crucial to
ensure that the radiant ultraviolet energy level from the
expected fire at the required distance from the detector
will exceed the selected sensitivity level.

The explosion-proof NEMA/Type 4X enclosure is


designed for use in a variety of hazardous locations.

Standard signal processing is recommended for


controlled indoor applications only.

SOFTWARE SELECTABLE OPTIONS

The arc rejection algorithm examines the radiant energy


level detected within a specified unit of time (timed
gate). Detector output is determined by three variables:

Each detector maintains an alarm log in non-volatile


memory. The time and date for the last eight alarms are
logged.
Terminal Wiring Board
All external wiring is connected to screw terminal
connectors on the terminal wiring board located inside
the detector housing.

The following software selectable options are available


through a PC running Det-Tronics configuration
software.

IV-2

Different combinations of these variables allow for


various levels of transient arc rejection capability. There
are four arc rejection levels (very high, high, medium,
and low) that are selectable for each detector through
the PC. Refer to Table IV-2.

Time Delay
Arc rejection mode If the fire signal meets the
programmed arc rejection requirements, the time delay
begins. A fire output is generated if the fire signal
continues for the duration of the time delay.

The proper arc rejection setting for a given application


must be determined through testing. For indoor
applications with known electrostatic energy fields
within 15 feet of the detector, an arc rejection setting of
very high or high is typical. For outdoor
applications, medium or low arc rejection settings
are typical.

Standard mode A fire output is generated only if the


fire signal exceeds the sensitivity setting for the entire
duration of the programmed time delay.
Automatic or Manual oi
The o i system uses an internally generated UV test
signal to determine the relative condition of the detector
and its optical surfaces.

It is recommended that each detector be thoroughly


tested at the programmed arc rejection setting within
the ambient conditions that will be present during
normal operation. This will help to ensure that the
selected arc rejection setting is proper for the
application.

If automatic o i testing is selected, the o i test is


automatically performed once every minute. The
automatic oi test does not generate an alarm output or
interfere with normal detector operation.

Sensitivity
The manual oi test is initiated using a button on the
point display screen at the PC. The manual oi test can
be used in addition to automatic oi to verify correct
system operation.

Whether the Standard or Arc Rejection mode is


selected, the sensitivity setting must always be
programmed. The selected sensitivity level determines
the fire alarm threshold setpoint. The higher the
sensitivity level, the greater the detection range, but the
possibility of false alarms will be increased. Four
sensitivity levels are selectable. Refer to Table IV-3.

Fire Output Latching


When latching operation is selected, the fire alarm
signal is cleared by removing input power for a
minimum of 0.1 second.

The sensitivity setting must be appropriate for the


anticipated fire size at the required distance from the
detector.

Fault Latching

EQ2200UVIR FLAME DETECTOR

If the fault output is set for latching, the fault will not
clear until it is corrected and the unit is reset. If a fire
occurs, the unit will indicate a fire, over-riding the fault
condition, i.e., the fault signal will clear if not latched. If
a fault is still present after the fire has been
extinguished, the unit will again indicate a fault until the
problem has been corrected and the unit is reset.

DESCRIPTION
The EQ2200UVIR Series Flame Detector is designed to
provide reliable fire protection in applications where the
use of either ultraviolet (UV) or infrared (IR) detectors
alone can result in false alarms. When used alone, a UV
detector can respond to sources of ultraviolet radiation
besides fire, such as lightning, x-rays or arc welding.
Likewise, an IR detector can respond to various hot
objects, such as flickering or chopped radiation from
electric heaters or exhaust manifolds.
The
microprocessor based EQ2200UVIR combines both a
UV and a single frequency IR sensor in a single
detector and requires simultaneous response of both
sensors to generate a fire alarm. These two detecting
elements monitor different portions of the radiation
spectrum and have virtually no common sources of
false alarms. This enables the detector to respond to a
real fire while ignoring potential false alarm sources
such as arc welding, x-rays, or hot vibrating objects.

EQ2200UVHT HIGH TEMPERATURE


UV FLAME DETECTOR
DESCRIPTION
The EQ2200UVHT UV Flame Detector provides UV
flame protection in continuous duty high temperature
applications, such as turbine compartments,
enclosures, generator rooms, etc. where ambient
temperatures can continuously exceed +75C (+167F).
The EQ2200UVHT is an electronic module assembly
that is used in conjunction with a high temperature rated
C7050B UV detector (with DE1888K3 high temperature
rated UV sensor tube). The two devices are mounted in
separate explosion-proof, watertight enclosures.

Microprocessor based circuitry located inside the


detector junction box continuously monitors the two
sensors, evaluating the signal(s) with fire and fault
algorithms to determine the current status of the
detector. When both sensors simultaneously detect the
presence of fire, the microprocessor generates a fire
signal, which is immediately sent over the LON/SLC to
the logic controller in the Local Control Unit (LCU). The
LEDs, visible through the UV sensor viewing window,
are also immediately illuminated. In addition, a
watchdog timer assures that the detectors operating
program is running properly.

The UV detector is rated for continuous duty in


environments up to +125C (+257F). The electronic
module is rated up to +75C (+167F).
NOTE
The electronic module cannot be located in the
high temperature area.
The UV detector and electronic module assembly can
be separated up to 165 feet (50 meters) using high
temperature rated 4 core shielded cable.

Detector Output
The output of the device is a status message that is sent
to the gateway and logic controller in the LCU along the
communication loop. System response to the message
is determined at the time of configuration. The detector
supports ANSI/NFPA 72 Class A, Style 7 communication
with the LCU.

NOTE
In accordance with NFPA 72, the maximum
separation distance is 20 feet (6 meters) using
conduit or equivalent protection against
mechanical damage.

Status Conditions
LED
Detector status conditions include normal operation,
fire, fault, UV only, and IR only. A fire alarm signal is
generated when both UV and IR sensors are active.
The fire alarm status has the highest priority and will
override a fault condition.

Detector status is indicated by a red LED that is visible


through the viewing window on the cover of the
electronic module junction box.
Refer to the EQ2200UV UV Flame Detector section
above for a description of features, operating
characteristics and software selectable options of DetTronics Eagle Quantum UV detectors.

Addressability

SOFTWARE SELECTABLE OPTIONS

Device identification is accomplished by setting rocker


switches on an eight position DIP switch (valid address
range is 5 to 250).

The following options are selectable through a PC


running Det-Tronics configuration software:
Processing Mode

Alarm Log
The UV portion of the detector offers a choice of two
different types of logic that can be used for processing
fire signals either standard or arc rejection.

Each detector maintains an alarm log in non-volatile


memory. The time and date for the last 8 alarms are
logged.

ARC REJECTION MODE


Enclosure
The arc rejection mode (recommended) enables the
detector to prevent nuisance fire alarms caused by
short-duration electrical arcs or electrostatic discharge,
while maintaining the ability to reliably detect a flame.
The arc rejection mode is not recommended unless
these false alarm sources are present within the
application to be protected. Typical applications that
benefit from arc rejection logic include any uncontrolled
environments where transient radiation sources can be
present, such as many typical outdoor applications.

The explosion-proof NEMA/Type 4X enclosure is


available in either aluminum or stainless steel and is
designed for use in a variety of hazardous locations.
LEDs
Detector status is indicated by a pair of red LEDs
(illuminated simultaneously) that are visible through the
viewing window of the UV sensor.
Table IV-4 indicates the condition of the LEDs for each
detector status.

The arc rejection algorithm examines the radiant energy


level detected within a specified unit of time (timed
gate). The output of the detector is determined by three
variables:
sensitivity level
gate length
number of consecutive gates required.

Automatic Diagnostics
The microprocessor based detector is equipped with
advanced fault detection and diagnostic capabilities.
The LED indicators on the UV sensor module provide
the user with visual annunciation of the problem area.
In addition, the point display screen at the OIS provides
a variety of information regarding detector status as well
as the actual UV and IR signal levels present at the
detector. Refer to Table IV-5 for a list of status
conditions.

Different combinations of these variables allow for


various levels of transient arc rejection capability. There
are two arc rejection levels (medium and high) that are
selectable for the detector through the OIS. The proper
arc rejection setting for a given application must be
determined through testing.

IV-6

It is recommended that each detector be thoroughly


tested at the programmed arc rejection setting within
the ambient conditions that will be present during
normal operation. This will help to ensure that the
selected arc rejection setting is proper for the
application.

Automatic or Manual oi

STANDARD MODE

The EQ2200UVIR is equipped with the Optical Integrity


(oi) feature. The oi test is performed on both the UV
and IR sensors to check the cleanliness of the detector
optics, as well as the proper functioning of the sensors
and electronic components of the detector. If a
problem should occur, it is quickly detected.

In the standard processing mode, the UV sensor output


(measured in counts per second) is compared to the
fire threshold (the sensitivity setting as described
below). If the radiant energy level from the fire exceeds
the selected alarm threshold level, the time delay
begins (if a time delay is selected). If the radiant energy
level from the fire remains above the selected sensitivity
level for the duration of the time delay, a fire alarm
signal is generated. In every application, it is crucial to
ensure that the radiant energy level from the expected
fire at the required distance from the detector will
exceed the selected sensitivity level.

The detector is user programmable (from a PC running


Det-Tronics configuration software) for automatic o i
testing. If automatic testing is selected, the oi test is
automatically performed on each sensor. The rate for
the UV sensor test is once per minute. The rate for the
IR sensor is field selectable from once a minute to once
every four hours. If a fault is detected, a trouble signal
is sent to the LCU over the LON/SLC. A fault condition
is indicated at the logic controller and the gateway and
also by the LEDs on the detectors UV sensor. The
automatic oi test does not generate an alarm output or
interfere with normal detector operation.

Standard signal processing is recommended for


controlled indoor applications only.

The manual oi test is initiated using a button on the


point display screen at the OIS. A successful test is
signaled by the OIS. The manual oi test can be used in
addition to automatic o i to verify correct detector
operation.

Sensitivity
Whether Arc Rejection or Standard mode is selected,
the sensitivity setting must always be programmed. The
selected sensitivity level determines the fire alarm
threshold setpoint. The higher the sensitivity level, the
greater the detection range, but the possibility of false
alarms will be increased. Four sensitivity levels are
selectable. (Sensitivity levels for UV and IR are selected
separately.)

NOTE
The manual oi test does not generate an alarm
output or actuate any system outputs.
Fire Output Latching
When latching operation is selected, the fire alarm
signal is present until cleared by a reset command from
the PC.

The sensitivity setting must be appropriate for the


anticipated fire size at the required distance from the
detector. Refer to the Specifications section of this
manual for additional information.
Time Delay

EQ2200DCU AND EQ2200DCUEX


DIGITAL COMMUNICATION UNIT

A time delay from 0 to 7 seconds is selectable.

DESCRIPTION

STANDARD MODE

ARC REJECTION MODE

The EQ2200 Series Digital Communication Unit (DCU)


digitizes a 4 to 20 ma analog signal and transmits the
value as the process variable portion of its Standard
Periodic Report (SPR) to the Communication Gateway
located in the LCU. All circuitry is housed in a single
explosion-proof/watertight enclosure for use in the area
of detection.

If the fire signal meets the programmed arc rejection


requirements, the time delay begins. A fire output is
generated if the fire signal continues for the duration of
the time delay.

Designed for use with the Eagle Quantum system, the


DCU provides a unique technique for detecting and
isolating opens or shorts in the Local Operating
Network/Signaling Line Circuit (LON/SLC) wiring. This

A fire output is generated only if the fire signal exceeds


the sensitivity setting for the entire duration of the
programmed time delay.

fault isolation method allows for communication integrity


in the event of a single wiring fault in the LON/SLC
wiring.

The red LED is used to indicate a calibration, power-up,


fault or alarm condition. The flashing rate of the red
LED indicates the following conditions:

The DCU is approved for use with a variety of Detector


Electronics sensors including catalytic combustible gas
sensors, the PointWatch IR gas detector, as well as
electrochemical sensors (hydrogen sulfide, carbon
monoxide, chlorine, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen
dioxide). It will also accept any sensor with a linear 4 to
20 ma output signal and allows for one person nonintrusive calibration.

Pulsed at a 4 Hz rate
Illuminated continuously.

NOTE
If the communication module has not been
configured, the red LED blinks at the 4 Hz rate.

Inputs

The amber LED is provided for factory diagnostic


purposes and is not used in the system. Illumination of
the amber LED normally indicates a failure in the
communication chip.
Replacement of the
communication module circuit board is required.

The DCU features one 4 to 20 ma non-isolated input,


with an input impedance of 200 ohms in series with a
protection diode. (When used with a Det-Tronics
catalytic combustible gas sensor, a separate transmitter
board converts the millivolt output to a 4 to 20 ma
signal.) The DCU also monitors its 24 vdc supply
voltage and reports to the PC when requested.

Calibration Log
The DCU keeps a calibration log in non-volatile memory
that can be used by the operator to evaluate the
remaining life of some sensors. This log includes the
zero, span, date and time for each successful
calibration. An aborted calibration is indicated by zeros
in the zero and span values. The calibration log is
cleared when the sensor replacement switch is pressed
and the calibration is successfully completed.

Output
The Standard Periodic Report (SPR) is sent to the
gateway at the rate determined at the time of
configuration (from one to ten seconds).
Calibration

The initial calibration is logged in position one, where it


remains for the life of the sensor. If more than 8
calibrations are performed without the sensor
replacement switch being pressed, the newest
calibration data will replace the second oldest so that
the initial calibration data can be saved. The old
calibration data will be lost. This feature enables sensor
sensitivity trending to aid in maintenance or
troubleshooting.

A magnetic reed switch, located on the terminal board,


enables calibration of the sensor without opening the
enclosure. The switch is activated by placing a
calibration magnet at a specified location on the side of
the enclosure. Once the calibration mode has been
entered, the DCU steps the user through the process.
For details, refer to the Calibration section of this
manual.
Addressability

The analog value for the sensor is represented in raw


analog to digital counts 0 to 4095, where 0 represents 0
ma and 4095 represents 24 ma.

Device identification is accomplished by setting


switches on an eight position DIP switch (valid address
range is 5 to 250).

Alarm Log

Status LEDs

A log of low and high alarms is stored in each DCU.


Time, date and alarm type are logged for each alarm
event. A maximum of eight events can be stored. If
more than eight events are logged, the oldest event will
be overwritten.

Three LEDs are located at the center of the


communication module circuit board and are visible
through the window on the enclosure cover.
The green LED serves as a power-on indicator and is
illuminated whenever power is applied. During normal
operation, only the green LED is illuminated.

IV-8

Each output is rated at 2 amperes. Auxiliary input


terminals are provided for additional 24 vdc output
power where needed.

Enclosure
The explosion-proof, watertight NEMA/Type 4X
enclosure is designed for use in a variety of hazardous
locations. The cover is furnished with a window to allow
the operator to view the three status indicator LEDs on
the communication module PC board.

Temporal pattern.

The EQ2400NE Series Network Extender expands the


capabilities of the Eagle Quantum system by allowing
additional nodes as well as additional wiring to be
added to the LON/SLC (communication loop). Without a
network extender, the communication network is limited
to 60 nodes on a 2000 meter loop. Each network
extender, however, increases the capacity of the loop
by up to 40 nodes and 2000 meters of wiring, up to a
maximum of 244 field nodes and 10,000 meters of
wiring.

The outputs operate in the reverse polarity fashion when


activated. Each output is rated at 2 amperes. Auxiliary
input terminals are provided for additional 24 vdc
signaling power where required.
The output circuits are supervised for open and short
circuit conditions. If a wiring fault occurs, a trouble
condition will be indicated at the LCU.
Addressability
Device identification is accomplished by setting
switches on an eight position DIP switch (valid address
range is 5 to 250).

Network extender circuitry supports communication in


both directions. If a network wiring fault should occur,
uninterrupted communication can continue in the
opposite direction.
LEDs
The network extenders electronic module is furnished
with three LEDs (one green and two yellow) for
indicating device status.

IV-10

The green LED indicates that power is applied and


flashes to indicate that messages are being transferred
over the network.
The two yellow LEDs correspond to the two
communication transceivers and are illuminated to
indicate that an internal fault has been detected.

If the fastest possible communication response time is


an important criteria for a large system, it is
recommended that the number of nodes on an
individual loop be kept as small as practical. Consider
using multiple loops with fewer nodes per loop rather
than one large loop.

Enclosure

60 NODE LOOP

The network extenders electronic circuitry is mounted


inside an explosion-proof, water-tight enclosure for
installation in hazardous locations. The enclosure is
available with up to six 3/4 inch NPT or 25 mm conduit

The gateway requires a finite length of time to process


each bit of information that is transferred along the
communication network. As the number of nodes
increases, so does the amount of data that is being
processed as well as the time required for processing
the data. As a result, the update time for each node
should be increased to accommodate the extra traffic
for a large system (one second minimum for each 50

UV detectors should not be positioned so that their cone


of vision can scan the horizon. Rather, they should be
directed down over the designated hazardous area to
reduce the likelihood of picking up UV radiation from
distant sources.

WINDOWS
Table V-1UV and IR Absorbing Gases and Vapors

Glass and plexiglas windows significantly attenuate UV


radiation and must not be located between the detector
and a potential flame source. If the window cannot be
eliminated or the detector location changed, contact
Detector Electronics for recommendations regarding
window materials that will not attenuate UV radiation.

The following is a partial list of compounds that exhibit


significant UV absorption characteristics. These are also
usually hazardous vapors. While generally of little
consequence in small amounts, these gases can restrict
UV detection if they are in the atmosphere in heavy
concentrations. It should also be determined whether or
not large amounts of these gases may be released as a
result of a fire-causing occurrence.

OBSTRUCTIONS
For an ultraviolet detector, dust, dirt and other films, UV
absorbing gases or vapors as well as physical
obstructions must not be allowed to come between the
detector and the protected hazard (see Table V-1).

ARC WELDING
Electric arc welding is a source of intense ultraviolet
radiation, and care must be taken to ensure that arc
welding is not performed in the protected area without
securing the fire detection system. UV radiation from
arc welding readily scatters and can deflect across
significant distances, even when direct obstructions
exist. Any open door or window can allow nuisance UV
radiation from arc welding to enter an enclosed area.

If UV-absorbing gases may be a factor in a given


application, precautionary measures should be taken.
Detectors can be placed closer to the potential hazard
area, and/or the sensitivity of the detection system can be
increased. Contact the factory for further details.
Substances such as methane, propane, butane, hexane,
camphor and octane are not UV absorbing.

When x-rays or radioactive substances are present in


the area being protected, the UV system must be
disabled until those sources are removed.

Absorption of infrared radiation in the range of 4.2 to 4.7


microns is not a significant problem with most organic
vapors, with the exception of those compounds that have
triple bonds such as acetylene, nitriles, silane, or
isocyanates. Carbon dioxide concentrations higher than
normally present in the atmosphere can also cause
substantial loss of fire detection sensitivity.

COMMON ENVIRONMENTAL CONDITIONS


The detector is not affected by environmental conditions
such as wind, rain or extremes of temperature and

UV DETECTOR POSITIONING
Detectors should be positioned to provide the best
unobstructed view of the area to be protected. The
following factors should be taken into consideration:

CENTER AXIS
OF DETECTOR
FIELD OF VIEW

Identify all high risk fire ignition sources.


Be sure that enough detectors are used to adequately
cover the hazardous area.

INCORRECT

For fastest response time, locate the detector as close


as possible to the anticipated fire source. The central
axis of the detectors cone of vision provides the
highest sensitivity.
Be sure that the unit is easily accessible for cleaning
and other periodic servicing.

CENTER AXIS
OF DETECTOR
FIELD OF VIEW

Particular attention should be paid to potential false


alarm sources within the cone of vision of the detector.

B1974

CORRECT

For outdoor applications, the detector should be


aimed downward at least 10 to 20 degrees to prevent
it from scanning the horizon. This minimizes response
to distant UV sources outside the protected area. See
Figure 1.

NOTE: DETECTOR MUST ALWAYS BE AIMED


DOWNWARD AT LEAST 10 TO 20 DEGREES.

Figure 1Detector Orientation Relative to Horizon

Any object having a temperature greater than 0


Kelvin (273C) emits infrared radiation. The hotter
the object, the greater the intensity of the emitted
radiation. The closer the infrared source is to the
detector, the greater the potential for a false alarm.
The IR sensor can respond to IR radiation sources
that can meet the amplitude and flicker
requirements of the detector such as vibrating hot
objects.

Dense fog, rain or ice will absorb UV radiation and


reduce the sensitivity of the detector.
If smoke is expected before flame, it is recommended
that smoke or other additional detectors be used in
conjunction with the UV detector.
If possible, fire tests should be conducted to verify
correct detector positioning and coverage.

Although the detector is designed to reduce false


actuations, certain combinations of ambient
radiation must be avoided. For example, if IR
radiation with an intensity that exceeds the fire
threshold of the IR sensor should reach the detector
as a flickering signal, and if at the same time an
electric arc welding signal also reaches the
detector, an alarm output will be generated.

UV/IR DETECTORS
FALSE ALARM SOURCES
UV: The UV sensor is insensitive to the ultraviolet
component of solar radiation. However, it will
respond to sources of UV besides fire, such as
electric arc welding, lightning, high voltage corona,
x-rays and gamma radiation.

NOTE
Radiation generated by false alarm sources such
as periodic lightning or sparks in the area can be
effectively ignored by the detector using the arc
rejection feature or time delay.

IR: The detector has been designed to ignore steady


state infrared sources that do not have a flicker
frequency characteristic of a fire, however, it should
be noted that if these steady state infrared sources
are hot enough to emit adequate amounts of
infrared radiation in the response range of the IR
sensor and if this radiation becomes interrupted
from the view of the detector in a pattern
characteristic of a flickering flame, the IR sensor
can respond.

Arc Welding
Electric arc welding is a source of intense ultraviolet
radiation. UV radiation from arc welding readily scatters
and can deflect across significant distances, even when
direct obstructions exist. Any open door or window can
allow nuisance UV radiation from arc welding to enter
an enclosed area.

V-2

The UV/IR detector does not respond to arc welding


beyond 10 feet from the detector. However, a UV only
signal will be generated in response to the intense UV
radiation generated by the arc welding, and at
distances closer than 10 feet the heated metal from the
welding can become a false alarm source for the IR
sensor.

UV/IR DETECTOR POSITIONING


IMPORTANT
Detectors should not be positioned so that their
cone of vision can scan the horizon. Rather, they
should be directed down over the designated
hazardous area to reduce the likelihood of picking
up radiation from distant sources. See Figure 1.

FACTORS INHIBITING DETECTOR RESPONSE


Detectors should be located in positions best suited for
covering the area to be protected. Whenever practical,
they should be placed where they will be easily
accessible for cleaning and other periodic servicing.
Particular attention should also be paid to potential false
alarm sources within the cone of vision of the detector,
such as distant arc welding, or the rotating blades of a
fan or surface vibration of an IR source, which could
allow a flickering IR signal to reach the detector. Rain
or ice can absorb radiation, which can reduce the
capability of the detector. For outdoor applications, aim
the detector downward to minimize the buildup of water
or ice on the detector viewing windows and to prevent
the cone of vision from scanning the horizon. This
minimizes response to distant radiation sources outside
the protected area.

Windows
Glass and Plexiglas windows significantly attenuate
radiation and must not be located between the detector
and a potential flame source. If the window cannot be
eliminated or the detector location changed, contact
Detector Electronics for recommendations regarding
window materials that will not attenuate radiation.
Obstructions
Radiation must be able to reach the detector in order for
it to respond. Care must be taken to keep physical
obstructions out of the line of view of the detector. In
addition, UV or IR absorbing gases or vapors must not
be allowed to accumulate between the detector and the
protected hazard. See Table V-1 for a list of these
substances.

GAS DETECTOR POSITIONING


The sensor must be properly located to enable it to
provide maximum protection. The formula for
determining the most effective number and placement
of sensors varies depending on the conditions at the job
site. The individual performing the installation must rely
on experience and common sense to determine the
quantity of sensors and the best sensor locations to
adequately protect the area.

Smoke
Smoke will absorb radiation. If accumulations of dense
smoke can be expected to precede the presence of a
flame, then detectors that are used in enclosed areas
should be mounted on the wall approximately 3 feet (1
meter) from the ceiling where the accumulation of
smoke is reduced.

The following factors should be considered for every


installation:

Detector Viewing Windows


It is important to keep the detector viewing windows as
free of contaminants as possible in order to maintain
maximum sensitivity. Commonly encountered
substances that can significantly attenuate UV and/or IR
radiation include, but are certainly not limited to, the
following:

1.

What kind of gas is to be detected? If it is lighter


than air (acetylene, hydrogen, methane, etc.), place
the sensor above the potential source. Place the
sensor close to the floor for gases that are heavier
than air (benzene, butane, butylene, propane,
hexane, pentane, etc.) or for vapors resulting from
flammable liquid spills. However, note that air
currents can cause a gas that is heavier than air to
rise. In addition, if the gas is hotter than ambient
air, it could also rise.

2.

How rapidly will the gas diffuse into the air? Select
a location for the sensor as close as practical to the
anticipated source of a gas leak.

Silicones
Oils and greases
Ice buildup
Dust and dirt buildup
Paint overspray.

V-3

95-8470

3.

Ventilation characteristics of the immediate area


must also be considered. Movement of air will
cause gas to accumulate more heavily in one area
than another. The sensor should be placed in the
area where the most concentrated accumulation of
gas is anticipated. Also consider the fact that many
ventilation systems do not operate continuously.

4.

The sensor should be pointed down to prevent the


buildup of moisture or contaminants on the filter and
to ensure proper operation. For PointWatch, refer to
instruction manual 95-8440.

5.

The sensor must be accessible for testing and


calibration. The use of the Sensor Separation Kit
will be required in some installations.

6.

Catalytic sensors should be located where they are


safe from potential sources of contamination that
can poison the sensing element.

7.

Exposure to excessive heat or vibration can result in


premature failure of any electronic device and
should be avoided if possible. Shielding the device
from intense sunlight will reduce solar heating and
can increase the life of the unit.

When a sensor is exposed to a different or new


environment, calibration should be checked frequently
to determine the proper interval between periodic
calibrations.
Before performing calibration, the operator should
examine the sensor filter (flame arrester) to be sure that
it is not missing or damaged. If the filter is defective or
missing, it must be replaced. In some cases, an
exposed sensing element can act as an ignition source.
It should also be noted that a dirty cover can
significantly reduce the sensitivity of the sensor.
CATALYTIC SENSOR OPERATION
The sensing element used in the combustible gas
sensor consists of a pair of elements. One is an active
catalytic sensing element, and the other is inactive and
acts as a temperature compensating reference element.
Both elements are composed of a wire coil encased in
ceramic. The active element has a catalytic coating
applied to its surface, however, the reference element is
glazed so that it does not react to the presence of a
combustible gas/air mixture. The pair is computer
matched to have the same electrical resistance.
In the presence of a combustible gas/air mixture, the
resistance of the active sensing element increases in
proportion to the concentration of gas at the sensor.
The change in resistance of the active sensing element,
relative to that of the reference element, is used to
determine the actual level of combustible gas present at
the sensor.

For additional information on determining quantity and


placement for sensors in a specific application, refer to
Instrument Society of America (ISA) Transaction Volume
20, Number 2, titled The Use of Combustible Detectors
in Protecting Facilities from Flammable Hazards.

CATALYTIC GAS SENSORS

Both elements operate at a high temperature and are


enclosed by a porous stainless steel cup (flame
arrester). See Figure V-2. This cup allows the diffusion
of gas to and from the sensing element, but prevents
the ignition of the atmosphere outside the sensor should
the combustible gas concentration exceed its LFL.

CAUTION
Exposure to a high level of gas can have an
adverse effect on the sensitivity of catalytic sensing
elements. If the level of gas at the sensor should
reach 100% LFL, it is important that it be tested
and recalibrated if required. In some cases, it may
be necessary to replace the sensor.

A barrier is placed between the element pair to prevent


thermal interaction and to prevent the transfer of
catalytic material from the active element to the surface
of the reference element.

If an over-range condition should occur, the user


must exercise caution, since a highly explosive
condition could exist. The hazardous area should
be checked with a portable detection instrument to
determine the actual level of combustible gas
present.

All catalytic type sensors require oxygen to detect


combustible gases. The sensor response will decrease
if enough combustible gas displaces the normal oxygen
present in air. The sensor should not be used where the
oxygen level is less than 10%. See Figure V-3.

For best calibration results, allow a new sensor to


operate for several hours to ensure a stable output
before performing calibration. For the highest degree of
accuracy, perform a second calibration after 24 hours.

Figure V-4 shows the response of a typical sensor to


various levels of combustible gas. Note that a reading of
40% LFL will be given at 2.0% methane (40% LFL) and

V-4

BLK

RED

WHT

also at 80.0% methane, well above the upper flammable


limit of methane. Although gas levels above the upper
flammable limit will not propagate a flame, it stands to
reason that somewhere between the leak and clear air
there will be a flammable mixture.
CAUTION
It is possible for the display to drop to a low % LFL
reading after going into high alarm and still have an
unsafe level of combustible gas present.
Therefore, precautions should be taken to ensure
that the combustible gas has been cleared before
classifying the area as safe.

The routine maintenance procedure should


include covering the sensor with a plastic bag
when painting or cleaning. The bag should be
removed as soon as possible when the
procedure is complete.

SENSITIVITY LOSS IN CATALYTIC COMBUSTIBLE


GAS SENSORS
There are a variety of factors that can cause a decrease
in the sensitivity of catalytic type combustible gas
sensors. Interfering or contaminating substances that
can adversely affect the response of the sensor to
combustible gases are as follows:

4.

This can occur where monomer vapors such as


1-3 butadiene, styrene, isoprene, etc. are
present.

A. Materials that can clog the pores of the sintered


metal flame arrestor and reduce the gas diffusion
rate to the sensor are:

B. Substances that cover or tie up the active sites on


the catalytic surface of the active sensing element.

1. Dirt and oil.

This occurs in the presence of volatile metal


organics, gases, or vapors of hydrides, and volatile
compounds containing phosphorous, boron,
silicone, etc.

A dust cover should be installed to protect the


flame arrester whenever these conditions exist.
The dust cover can be cleaned as part of routine
maintenance. This can be accomplished using
an organic solvent and an ultrasonic bath.
2.

Examples:
RTV silicone sealants
Silicone oils and greases
Tetraethyl lead
Phosphine
Diborane
Silane
Trimethyl chlorsilane
Hydrogen fluoride
Boron trifluoride
Phosphate esters

Corrosive products.
This occurs when substances such as Cl 2
(Chlorine) or HCl are present. A dust cover
provides some protection. The dust cover
should be replaced as part of routine
maintenance.

3.

Polymer formation in the flame arrester.

Flame arrester clogged as a result of painting


or house cleaning.

V-6

C. Materials that remove the catalytic metals from the


active element of the sensor.

CALIBRATION GAS
Before calibrating a sensor, check the label on the
calibration gas cylinder to ensure that the correct gas
type and concentration are being used. If a different
gas type is being used for calibration, refer to DetTronics Technical Note No. GTN01 for K-Factor
information (Det-Tronics form number 99-1068-02).

Some substances react with the catalytic metal


forming a volatile compound. This erodes the metal
from the surface. With sufficient exposure, most or
all of the metal catalyst can be removed from the
surface of the active element of the sensor.
Halogens and compounds containing halogen are
materials of this nature.
Examples:
Chlorine
Bromine
Iodine
Hydrogen Chloride, Bromide or Iodide
Organic halides:
Trichloroethylene
Dichlorobenzene
Vinyl chloride
Freons
Halon 1301
(Bromotrifluoromethane).
A brief exposure to one of these materials can
temporarily increase the sensitivity of the sensor.
This results because the surface of the active
element is increased due to etching. Prolonged
exposure continues the etching process until the
sensitivity of the sensor is degraded, resulting in
shortened sensor life.
D. Exposure to high concentrations of combustible
gases.
Exposure of the sensor to high concentrations of
combustible gases for extended periods of time
can introduce stress to the sensing element and
seriously affect its performance. After exposure to
a high concentration of combustible gas,
recalibration should be performed and, if
necessary, the sensor should be replaced.
The degree of damage to the sensor is determined
by a combination of the type of contaminant, its
concentration in the atmosphere, and the length of
time the sensor is exposed. When a sensor has
been exposed to a contaminant or a high level of
combustible gas, it should be calibrated at the time,
followed by an additional calibration a few days
later to determine whether a significant shift in
sensitivity has occurred.
E. A combination of accessories such as rain shields
and dust covers is not recommended and can
result in slow response to a gas leak.

Section VI
General Wiring Requirements

POWER WIRING
The input voltage at the field devices must be 18 vdc
minimum to ensure proper operation of the devices.
Therefore, it is important to consider both the size
(gauge) of the power wiring and the wiring distance
from the power supply. As the wiring distance
increases, larger diameter wire is required to maintain a
minimum of 18 vdc at the device.

GENERAL INFORMATION
WARNING
Do not open any junction box or device enclosure
when power is applied without first de-classifying
the hazardous area.

Refer to Table VI-1 to determine the minimum wire size


needed to prevent excessive voltage drop from power
supply to device for a given current load.

CAUTION
Any deviation from the recommended wiring
practices can compromise system operation.
Consult the factory if different wire types or
methods are being considered.

To use Table VI-1, first determine the total current load


for the circuit and the maximum allowable voltage drop.
Then look under the appropriate Amp Load column to
determine the minimum wire size that will not allow the
voltage drop to exceed the maximum allowable.

NOTE
All wiring must be marked per NFPA 70 Article
760.

For example:

NOTE
Specific installation requirements may differ
depending on local installation practices and
compliance with third party certifications. For local
installation practices, consult the local authority
having jurisdiction. For compliance with third party
certifications, consult the appropriate appendix in
this manual for additional specific installation
requirements.

In applications where the wiring cable is installed in


conduit, the use of watertight conduit seals, drains,

damage to electrical connections caused by
condensation within the conduit.

JUNCTION BOX GROUNDING


Junction boxes should be electrically connected to
earth ground.
RS-485 LINK WIRING

ELECTROSTATIC DISCHARGE
The RS-485 link connecting the LCU and LIOU requires
termination at both ends. The LCU provides termination
for the beginning of the RS-485 link. All other devices,
except for the device at the end of the line, shall have
their termination resistor removed. The LIOU uses a
termination resistor that must be removed if it is not at
the end of the line.

Many system electronic modules contain semiconductor


devices that are susceptible to damage by electrostatic
discharge. An electrostatic charge can build up on the
skin and discharge when an object is touched.
Therefore, use caution when handling, taking care not to
touch the terminals or electronic components. For more
information on proper handling, refer to Service Memo
form 75-1005.

All devices sharing a common RS-485 link must have a


common power return.
PROTECTION AGAINST MOISTURE DAMAGE

DETERMINING POWER
REQUIREMENTS

Moisture can have a detrimental effect on the


performance of electronic devices. Therefore, it is
important to take proper precautions during installation
to ensure that moisture will not come in contact with the
electrical connections or components of the system.

BATTERY CHARGER

CAUTION
Care should be taken when considering the final
voltage at the device during AC power loss. With
loss of AC power, the device voltage will drop over
time as the batteries lose their charge. If extended
periods of AC power loss are to be expected,
either consider a heavier wire gauge than indicated
in Table VI-1, or specify batteries with higher amphour ratings.

Use the following formula to calculate the minimum


battery charger size:

EQ2100LCU SERIES
LOCAL CONTROL UNIT

NOTE
EOL terminals are provided to allow convenient
installation of EOL resistors. Installing an EOL
resistor at terminals 1D and 1E or 2D and 2E
places it across the normally open and common
contacts of the alarm and supervisory relays. Note
that the Trouble relay is energized during normal
operation, therefore the EOL resistor goes across
the normally closed contacts at 3D and 3E. To
insert the resistor lead into the terminal, depress
the orange lever.

All external wiring to the LCU is connected to the


terminal blocks that are an integral part of the LCU
backplane, extending below the card rack. To access
the terminals, the cover must be removed.
The terminals are arranged in three rows and numbered
from left to right. Row A is closest to the bottom of the
board, row B in the center, and row C on top.

RELEASE MODULE

SWITCH SETTING

WIRING

Each release module in the LIOU must be assigned a


unique address (1 to 8). This is accomplished using
switches S3-2, S4-1 and S4-2 on the release module
circuit board. Refer to Table VII-4 to determine the
correct switch positions for the desired address.

Refer to Figure VII-10 for identification of wiring


terminals.
To ensure adequate operating voltage for the output
device, the maximum wiring length from the power
source to the output device must not exceed the values
shown in Table VII-2 for automatic release applications
or Table VII-3 for deluge and pre-action applications.
(For solenoids, this wire length includes both the wiring
from the power supply to the agent release module and
the wiring from the module to the solenoid. For squibs,
use only the wire length from the power supply to the
module, since the resistance of the wire from the
module to the squib is included when determining the
value of the compensating resistor.)

Switches S1 and S3-1 must be set for solenoid or


explosive initiator (squib). Refer to Table VII-5 for switch
positions.

JUMPERS
When the auxiliary power input is used, jumpers W1 and
W2 must be cut. See Figure VII-11 for the locations of

Sensor Separation with DCUEX


If the installation requires mounting the sensor in a
different location than the DCUEX, observe the following
guidelines.

GR

When separating a combustible gas sensor from the


DCUEX, two options exist:

GR

1. Preferred Method
Mount the transmitter PC board inside the sensor
separation junction box. This assembly can be
separated from the DCUEX by up to 1000 feet using
three conductor 18 AWG shielded cable.
(Regardless of separation distance, operating
voltage at the transmitter MUST be at least 18 vdc
to ensure proper operation.) See Figure VII-39.

Assemble the DCUEX without the transmitter board


similar to the DCU as shown in Figure VII-33. Plug
the sensor into P2 on the transmitter board. Use a
three conductor 18 AWG shielded cable to connect
P1 on the transmitter board to terminals 2, 3 and 4
on the DCU terminal board (see Figure VII-39).
Connect the shield to the ground terminal in the
DCUEX junction box.

Alternate Method.
If the transmitter board must be mounted separate
from the sensor (high temperature applications,
etc.), separate the sensor only, leaving the
transmitter PC board inside the DCUEX enclosure.
When using this installation option, see Table VII-9
for maximum wiring distances.

Mount the sensor directly to the separation kit


junction box. Use three conductor shielded cable
for the connection between the terminal block in the
separation kit junction box and P1 on the transmitter
board. A plug with screw terminals is provided for
connecting the cable to P1 on the transmitter board.
Observe the wiring color code. Connect the shield
to the ground terminal in the DCUEX junction box.

Maximum Wire Length in Feet


12 AWG 14 AWG 16 AWG 18 AWG

To ensure adequate operating voltage for the output


device, the maximum wiring length from the power
source to the output device must not exceed the values
shown in Table VII-10 for automatic release applications
or Table VII-11 for deluge and pre-action applications.
(For solenoids, this wire length includes both the wiring
from the power supply to the agent release module and
the wiring from the module to the solenoid. For squibs,
use only the wire length from the power supply to the
module, since the resistance of the wire from the
module to the squib is included when determining the
value of the compensating resistor.)

TYPICAL APPLICATIONS
Figure VII-45 shows a power supply monitor wired on a
LON between a UV detector and a DCU.

Communication network connections:


Connect to COM 1 terminals of the
previous device on the loop, A to A and B
to B.

Figure VII-46 illustrates the power and communication


wiring for a UV detector, an IDC and a DCU, connected
to a standard LCU (EQ2100LCU) and an LIOU.

Connect the "+" terminal to the positive


side of the 24 vdc power source. (Both "+"
terminals are connected internally.)

Figure VII-47 illustrates the power and communication


wiring for a UV detector, an IDC and a DCU, connected
to the optional LCU (EQ2101LCU) and an LIOU.

Connect the "-" terminal to the negative


side of the 24 vdc power source. (Both "-"
terminals are connected internally.)

Figure VII-48 shows the power and communication


wiring for a UV/IR detector, an EQ2500SAM and an
EQ2500ARM, connected to a standard LCU
(EQ2100LCU) and an LIOU.

Connect the shields to the two designated "shield"


terminals. The two shield terminals are connected
internally to ensure shield continuity. Do not ground
either shield at the network extender enclosure.
Insulate the shields to prevent shorting to the
device housing or any other conductor.

5.

Check all field wiring to ensure that the proper


connections have been made.

6.

Inspect the enclosure O-ring to be sure that it is in


good condition and properly installed. Lubricate the
O-ring and the threads of the enclosure cover to
ease both installation and future removal of the
cover. The recommended lubricant is a silicone free
grease available from Detector Electronics. If the
installation uses catalytic type combustible gas
sensors, it is imperative that lubricants containing
silicone not be used, since they will cause
irreversible damage to the sensor. Place the cover
on the enclosure. Tighten only until snug. Do not
over tighten.

Figure VII-49 shows a network extender wired between


a UV detector and a DCU.

LOGIC CONTROLLER

LON/SLC DEVICE ADDRESS SWITCH


SETTING

The logic controller contains three 8-position DIP switch


assemblies that are used for:
Serial port configuration
Communication parameters
Setting the LON/SLC address.
S5 Hardware Serial Port Configuration
Verify that S5 switches are set as follows:
1 Closed

Each individual device on the LON/SLC must be


assigned a unique address. Addresses 1 to 4 are
reserved for gateway use. Address 1 is for the main
gateway. Valid addresses for field devices are from 5 to
250. If the address is set to zero or an address above
250, the communication module will ignore the switch
setting. Duplicated addresses are not automatically
detected. All modules with the same address will report
on that address. The status word will show the latest
update, which could be from any of the reporting
modules at that address.

2 Open

NOTE
Logic controllers utilize two consecutive LON/SLC
addresses, the first of which must be an odd
number, i. e. a Logic Controller with an address of
7 will occupy both 7 and 8 on the LON/SLC.

3 Open
4 Closed
5 Open
6 Open
7 Closed
8 Open.
S6 Diagnostic Serial Port Configuration
Diagnostic serial port is
intended for factory use only.
Switch settings will not affect
normal operation.
S7 LON/SLC Address
Set switches for the LON/SLC
address. Valid addresses are
from 5 to 247, and must be an
odd number. If an address
outside this range is selected,
the address will default to 5.
S7-1 = LSB, S7-8 = MSB.

ISOLATION MODULE
A slide switch (SW1), located on the top edge of the
module, controls the 24 volt ground fault monitor
function.
On = Enabled
Off = Disabled

Selection of the node address for field devices is


accomplished by setting rocker switches on a DIP
switch assembly. (Note that only the first eight of the 12
switches are used for selecting the address.) The
address number is binary encoded with rocker switch
No. 1 on the 8 position switch assembly being the LSB
(least significant bit). Each rocker switch has a specific
binary value, as shown in Figure VIII-3. The node
address is equal to the added value of all closed rocker
switches. All open switches are ignored. For example:
for node No. 5, close rocker switches 1 and 3 (binary
values 1 + 4); for node No. 25, close rocker switches 1,
4 and 5 (binary values 1 + 8 + 16).
Power must be cycled before the new address will take
effect.
For your convenience in setting the address switches,
refer to the table Address Switch Settings at the back
of this manual.
After setting the address switches, record the address
number and device type on the Address Identification
Chart provided with this manual. Post the chart in a
convenient location near the LCU.

Section IX
System Startup

The last device requires an EOL resistor.


All devices sharing a common RS-485 link must have a
common system power return.

PRE-COMMISSIONING CHECKLIST
GENERAL

LIOU

Insulate all shields to prevent shorting to the device


housing or to any other conductor.

Verify correct jumper positions and switch settings.


Never disconnect the circuit ground between the LIOU
and the LCU.

Place alarm/release output in Bypass/Isolate when


servicing devices.

Check signal circuits for correct polarity.

Maintain a log book containing the type and serial


numbers of devices as well as the location and date of
installation.

Check for correct installation of EOL resistors.

POWER SUPPLIES AND POWER MONITORS

Maintain a log of maintenance activities.


Observe normal precautions for handling electrostatic
sensitive devices.

Verify all earth ground connections as specified in the


wiring instructions.
Verify correct ac power to supply.

LON

Check power distribution to ensure that all devices are


receiving power.

Rocker switches for each LON device must be set to the


desired address prior to power-up.

Check power trouble indicator by introducing a short


and an open.

Test the loop with no power applied and all


communication modules removed. DC resistance
should be equal on A and B.

FLAME DETECTORS

Check polarity on A and B (no rolls). COM 1 connects


to COM 2 ; COM 2 connects to COM 1. A connects to
A and B to B.

Check for potential false alarm sources.


Check detector aiming and ensure that mounting
brackets are tight.

Measure voltage. A to chassis ground measures


approximately +7.5 vdc. B to ground measures
approximately 7.5 vdc.

Check for objects that can block the detectors view.


Detectors can be checked for proper response using
the test described in this manual.

Measure signal (400 mv P-P min.).


Check fault tolerance by introducing a short and an
open.

DCUs
LCU

Check modules for correct orientation.


Check for the presence of contaminants or poisoning
agents.

Verify correct switch positions.


All configuration data must be downloaded to the
device and written to the EPROM after any change is
made. Changes to the logic controller also require
downloading via the key switch.

Device should be oriented with the sensor pointing


down.

CALIBRATION

Check jumpers.

To ensure optimum performance, calibration must be


performed on a regularly scheduled basis. Since each
application is different, the length of time between
regularly scheduled recalibrations can vary from one
installation to the next. In general, the more frequently a
system is checked, the greater the reliability.

SAMs
Check signal circuits for correct polarity.
Check for correct installation of EOL resistors.

IMPORTANT
4 to 20 ma devices not manufactured by DetTronics must be pre-calibrated. To ensure
adequate protection, calibration must be performed
on a regularly scheduled basis.

Check jumpers.

STARTUP PROCEDURE
1.

Output loads that are controlled by the system


should be secured (remove power from all output
devices) to prevent actuation.

2.

Check all system wiring for proper connection.

3.

Before installing devices in the mounting racks,


inspect them to verify that they have not been
physically damaged in shipment. Check the rocker
switches for proper programming, then slide the
device fully into the mounting rack.

4.

Apply power to the system.

NOTE
The calibration will be aborted and the detector will
revert back to the previous calibration values if the
calibration is not completed within 12 minutes. The
red LED will blink. The calibration will be logged
as aborted.
NOTE
The Sensor Replacement calibration procedure
must be used for the initial calibration of a new
sensor. The Routine Calibration procedure can
then be used for all subsequent calibrations.
NOTE
Some calibration procedures require the operator
to activate the reed switch located on a circuit
board inside the junction box. See Figure IX-1 for
the location of the reed switch. To activate the
reed switch, hold the calibration magnet against
the side of the junction box near the switch location
approximately one inch above the mounting
surface. (Do not open the junction box.) Hold the
calibration magnet in place for about 4 seconds to
initiate steps of the calibration procedure.

NOTE
To prevent the network modules from going into a
fault isolation condition, apply power to the LCU
prior to applying power to the network devices.
5.

Program the system for the desired operation using


Det-Tronics configuration software. Refer to
software manual, form number 95-8479-02.
Download configuration data to all devices.

CALIBRATION ALGORITHM A

NOTE
After system configuration has been completed,
the entire system should be tested for proper
operation to ensure that configuration was
performed properly.

Allow the system to monitor the protected area for a


period of time with all the normal operations in the
area taking place. If the detector responds
(indicating a fire when no fire has occurred), check
the area to see if UV sources are present. If
possible, remove the sources, or reposition the
detectors so that the sources fall outside of the
detectors cone of vision. If problems still occur,
adjust the time delay, sensitivity or arc rejection
settings.
The model U7656 Hand-Held UV Monitor is
available from Detector Electronics for conveniently
scanning the protected area and pin-pointing the
exact source of UV radiation.

UV DETECTOR TEST
CAUTION
To prevent unwanted actuation, alarm and
extinguishing devices must be disconnected prior
to performing detection system tests.

FIRE ALARM TEST


1.

Disable any extinguishing equipment that is


connected to the system.

2.

Apply input power to the system. Allow a one


second power-up delay.

3.

Hold a UV source (W8066) within the cone of vision


of the detector at a distance relative to the selected
detection range. Verify that an alarm condition is
indicated at the LCU. Reset the alarm indication
using the key switch on the LCU.

Repeat this test for each fire detector in the system.

5.

Verify that all detectors are properly aimed at the


area to be protected.

6.

Recycle power and test again as described above.

4.

Once the correct settings are obtained, turn on all


alarm and extinguishing equipment that is
connected to the system. Record all switch settings
for future reference.

UV/IR DETECTOR TEST


IMPORTANT
Disable any extinguishing equipment that is
connected to the system to prevent unwanted
actuation.
The detector can be tested by shining a UV/IR test lamp
(W867 or W8067) into the detector viewing windows or
by a live fire. (Refer to the test lamp manual for specific
instructions regarding proper use of the device.) This
will cause the detector to go into an alarm condition
the LEDs on the UV sensor will be on steady and the
LCU will indicate an alarm condition. If latching
operation is selected, the detector will remain in this
condition until it is reset at the OIS. If non-latching
operation is selected, the detector will return to normal
operation as soon as the test is terminated (the test
lamp or fire source is removed).

Lack of response may indicate reduced sensitivity


due to contamination on the viewing window, a
damaged sensor, or electronic circuitry or wiring
problems. Refer to Troubleshooting for additional
information.
4.

3.

If a fire signal was not generated and the LEDs indicate


response by only one sensor, the other sensor has
failed to respond.
Check the cleanliness of the viewing window and
repeat the test.
If the sensor fails to respond again, replace the
sensor module.
If the sensor still does not respond, replace the
detector.

Enable extinguishing equipment when the test is


complete.

IX-7

95-8470

If a fire signal was not generated and the LEDs indicate


response by neither sensor, both sensors have failed to
respond.
Check input power and external wiring.
Check the cleanliness of both viewing windows.
If the detector still does not respond:
If using a test lamp, check the battery, window, etc.
to be sure that the test lamp is working properly.
If the detector still does not respond, replace the
detector.

IR Fault
To correct an IR oi fault, clean the viewing window and
oi ring of the IR sensor, and also check the module and
oi ring opening for proper orientation. If the fault does
not clear (fault reoccurs), a faulty sensor or electrical
problem is indicated. Check the connection of the
connector plug on the IR module. Also check the
condition of the wires. Repair or replace if needed. If
the problem persists, replace the IR sensor module. If
the problem still persists, replace the detector.

MANUAL oi
General Fault
When manual oi is selected, the automatically initiated
oi test is disabled.

If a general fault is indicated, check input power to the


detector as well as continuity of system wiring. Also
check the detector viewing windows for contamination
such as paint overspray, snow, etc. that could
simultaneously affect both sensors. Since simultaneous
failure of both sensor modules is unlikely, the problem is
most likely caused by loss of input power or failure of
the detectors electronic circuitry.

Regardless of the o i selection, internal diagnostic


circuitry will respond to failures such as a loss of input
power or to certain electronic failures. These failures
will be indicated at the LCU and also by the detectors
LEDs. If such a failure occurs, check the operation of
the power source and the continuity of the detector
wiring. If the detector appears to be dead with power
applied, it must be returned to the factory for repair.

Background Radiation

AUTOMATIC oi

Background radiation as such does not cause a


problem with the detector in most applications, unless
both UV and flickering IR non-fire radiation sources
occur simultaneously. If a UV or IR background
radiation indication occurs:
Determine its cause. The presence of background
radiation could indicate a problem in the protected
area. For example, background IR could be
caused by overheating equipment.
Determine whether or not repositioning the detector
could eliminate response to the background
radiation without reducing coverage of the
hazardous area.

The Automatic oi feature (if selected) tests the detector


at the selected interval (once per minute for UV and
from once a minute to once every four hours for IR),
checking the cleanliness of the optical surfaces, sensor
sensitivity, and proper functioning of the electronic
circuitry. If a problem is detected for three consecutive
automatic oi tests, a fault signal is generated at the
LCU (also indicated by the UV sensor LEDs). If the
detector passes three subsequent automatic oi tests,
the fault signal will be cleared
UV Fault
To correct a UV oi fault, clean the viewing window and
oi ring of the UV sensor, and also check the oi ring
opening for proper orientation. If the fault does not
clear (or fault reoccurs), a faulty sensor or electrical
problem is indicated. First replace the UV sensor
module. If the problem persists, replace the detector.

Section XI
System Maintenance

FLAME DETECTOR MAINTENANCE


The flame detector requires no periodic calibration.
However, to maintain maximum sensitivity, the viewing
window must be kept clean at all times.

ROUTINE MAINTENANCE
To ensure reliable protection, it is important to check
and calibrate the system on a regularly scheduled
basis. The frequency of these checks is determined by
the requirements of the particular installation.

To clean the optical surfaces, remove the oi ring from


the detector by gently squeezing the tabs together and
then pulling out. Clean the viewing window and the
back side of the oi ring using a clean cloth or tissue
and Det-Tronics window cleaning solution. Avoid the
use of commercial glass cleaners, since many of them
can leave a UV absorbing residue on the surface.
Avoid leaving fingerprints on the reflective surface of the
o i ring. Re-install the ring so that the opening is
positioned downward.

MANUAL CHECK OF OUTPUT DEVICES


It is important that response devices be checked initially
when the system is installed, as well as periodically
during the on-going maintenance program.
CAUTION
Be sure to secure all output devices that are
actuated by the system to prevent unwanted
activation of this equipment, and remember to
place these same output devices back into service
when the checkout is complete.

NOTE
If corrosive contaminants in the atmosphere cause
the reflective rings to deteriorate to the extent that
it is no longer possible to restore them to their
original condition, they must be replaced.
To ensure the watertight integrity of the detector, the Orings must be maintained following the guidelines
described above.

O-RING MAINTENANCE
WARNING
The hazardous area must be de-classified prior to
removing a junction box cover with power applied.

GAS SENSOR MAINTENANCE


All gas sensors must be calibrated on a regularly
scheduled basis, typically every 90 days for catalytic
and electrochemical sensors and annually for
PointWatch.

A rubber O-ring is used to ensure that the junction box


cover will seal tightly and provide protection against
water ingress. Periodically the enclosure should be
opened and the O-ring should be inspected for breaks,
cracks and dryness. To test the ring, remove it from the
enclosure and stretch it slightly. If cracks are visible, it
should be replaced. If it feels dry, a thin coating of
lubricant should be applied. When re-installing the ring,
be sure that it is properly seated in the groove on the
housing. It is imperative that this O-ring be properly
installed and in good condition. Failure to properly
maintain it can allow water to enter the enclosure and
cause premature failure. A coating of lubricant should
also be applied to the threads on the cover before reassembling the enclosure. This will both lubricate the
threads and help to prevent moisture from entering the
enclosure.

Catalytic sensors have a finite lifespan. If a successful


calibration cannot be performed, replace the sensor
and recalibrate following the procedure described in the
Calibration section. Exposure of the sensor to high
concentrations of combustible gases for extended
periods of time can introduce stress to the sensing
element and seriously affect its performance. After
exposure to a high concentration of combustible gas,
recalibration should be performed and, if necessary, the
sensor should be replaced.
Electrochemical sensors have a finite lifespan. If a
successful calibration cannot be performed, inspect the
hydrophobic filter. If the filter is plugged, replace it and
recalibrate the sensor. If the filter is in good condition,
replace the sensor. Recalibrate following the procedure
described in the Calibration section.

CAUTION
The O-rings should be lubricated with a silicone
free grease. The use of other lubricants is not
recommended, since they can adversely affect the
performance of some sensors. Under no
circumstances should a lubricant or compound
containing silicone be used on systems using
catalytic type combustible gas sensors.

If the PointWatch fails calibration, refer to the


PointWatch manual.
NOTE
Compare part numbers to be sure that the correct
replacement sensor is being used.
XI-1

95-8470

for proper wiring, programming and calibration. If it is


determined that the problem is caused by an electronic
defect, the device must be returned to the factory for
repair.

BATTERIES
Batteries must be replaced every 48 months, or sooner
if required by local codes. Only sealed batteries are to
be used.

NOTE
When replacing a device, be sure that the rocker
switches on the replacement are set the same as
the original. Remove power before removing or
plugging in the replacement unit. When a DCU,
IDC or flame detector is replaced, the point must
be re-configured. If the auto-configure feature is
enabled, configuration is done automatically.

TROUBLESHOOTING
Table XI-1 is intended to serve as an aid in locating the
cause of a system malfunction. If the problem cannot
be corrected, contact the factory for assistance.

REPLACEMENT PARTS
