GLOSSARY AND APPENDIX

What is a fire detection system?
A fire detection system comprises a central control panel, remote detectors, fire alarm call points and sounders t o raise an alarm in the event of a fire. When specifying a fire detection and alarm system, the new "Fire Precautions in the Workplace Regulations 1997", with the 1971 act must be examined. This legislation includes Risk Assessment and stipulates measures that the user/occupier must take t o safeguard buildings or prernises from the risk of fire. Consideration must also be made t o ensure the system meets the requirements of BS5839 p t l : 1988. It is always advisable t o consult the local Fire Prevention or Building Officer about legislation for particular premises. There are currently t w o predominant types of fire detection systems: Conventional and Analogue Addressable. A Conventional system uses detectors which have t w o states; NORMAL or FIRE . If there is a fire, the control panel identifies the general area or zone where the fire has started and activates alarm sounders. This type of system is generally suited t o small and medium sized premises. The innovative conventional range includes 'Firetec' and 'Eurofire'. Eurofire-Sensa is a new 2-wire fire detection system (see pages 9, 6 and 13 respc%ctively) An Analogue Addressable system uses sensors t o indicate the precise location in which the fire or fault has occured . A pre-alarm threshold mechanism helps the panel t o recognise a possible early warning from a sensor. The sensor!; convert an analogue reading t o a digitally encoded output representing the ambient state in the vicinity of the sensing position. The sensors provide the information t o enable the control panel t o determine if there i s a fire or a fault. Analogue sensors can be individually interrogated from the control panel t o check their status at any time. This type of system is suited t o larger premises where extensive areas can be covered efficiently by the advanced loop configuration. The status of the whole system is constantly monitored. For information about the advanced analogue system "ANATEC", please turn t o page 15. A new addressable wireless fire detection system; 'Radio Firetec' is introduced on page 19. For reference t o Legislation and Codes of practice, please see appendix page 25.
MANUAL CALLPOINT

Testing and Maintenance
BS.5839 Part1 1988 states that fire systems should be regularly tested as follows: Daily Check that the "Supply Healthy" indicator shows and that there are no 'fault' indications, and any previous fault occurances have been attended to. Weekly Check all panel LEDs are workinq by performinq a lamp test Operate a device t o test the fire-alarm. Check that the alarm sounders operate. Each week choose a different zone so that one is tested at least quarterly. Also use a different device for each test so that all call points and detectors are tested. Enter test results into the log book.

DESIGN
Classes of Protection
Under 855839 P t l Fire alarm systems are categorised into three types. Type p Automat? aeteccon systems intendea 6 r theprotectTon of property. They are further subdivded into: Type PI: Systems installed throughout the protected building; except for voids less than 800mm in height. Type P2: Systems installed only in defined parts of the protected building, other areas seperated using fire resistant construction. Automatic detection intended for the protection of life. They are further subdivded into: Type L1: Systems installed throughout the protected building; except for voids less than 800mm in height. Type L2: Systems installed only in defined parts of the protected building where a fire could lead t o a high risk t o life; a type L2 system should normally include the coverage required by a type L3 system; Type L3: Systems installed only: a) for the protection of escape routes.

Addressable Systems
A scheme based on an addressable detection system must be designed to ensure: 1. A single fault in the field is quarantined t o a single zone. This will be achieved by the strategic positioning of short circuit isolation modules. 2. One loop should be allocated to protect a maximum area of 10,000m2 . 3. The panel display of an alarm condition must indicate the zone of registration. The code also requires for a mimic diagram or zone plan showing the plan of the building t o aid zonal identification.

Call Points, Detectors and Sounders
Break Glass Call Points
Positioning: 1, At all final exit points t o the outside. On all exit routes and floor landings of all stairways. 2. The maximum travel distance t o a call point is 30m. 3. A call point must be positioned in an illuminated obvious place, 1.4m above the floor. 4. The method of operation of all call points should be identical through-out the scheme.

b) rooms that open up into escape routes. c) landing. d) top of stairs and vertical risers such as lift shafts and at each level within 1.5metres of lift or riser access. Premises protected by automatic detection systems, i.e. types L and P, should normally also be provided with manual call points.
Manual alarm systems In some premises, responsibility may lie with more than one occupant or external party. The fire alarm system requirement will differ to that of a building with single occupancy. There is a need for liaison between occupants and fire alarm systems may need t o be linked or overlapped. Systems intended for use in multi-occupancy buildings are given the suffix letter X.

Detectors
A fire produces smoke and heat. The characteristics of a fire are determined by the material that has been ignited and the conditions prevailing at the site of the fire. The physical and environmental situation (prescence of: cigarette smoke, exhaust fumes, or steam from bathrooms) must be assessed before choosing the type of detector.

Point Smoke Detectors
Ionisation Chamber Detection An electric current flows between t w o electrodes. Smoke particles will reduce the current flow. Ideal for detecting fast burning fires where little smoke is visible (generally hot smoke). Optical Chamber Detection A photosensor is fitted away from the direct path of an infra red beam. Smoke particles entering into the chamber will scatter the beam towards the sensor and trigger an alarm. Ideal for large particle smoke, typically produced by smouldering PVC (generally thick dense smoke).

Fire Detection Zones
To identify the source of a fire quickly, it is necessary t o divide the protected region into zones. A zone may contain a number of fire compartments. Typically a fire compartment is a closed space bounded by 3 structure that will contain a fire for at least 30 minutes.
1. A zone is limited t o one floor unless the total building floor area 2. 3.

Point Heat Detectors
is less than 300m2 . Such a small site can be a one zone building One zone will have a maximum floor area of 2000m2. The visual search distance t o locate a fire must not excede 30m. On sites with many compartments remote indicators can be fitted outside rooms t o assist in the search. A stairwell in a fire compartment becomes a separate zone when it extends beyond one floor. A zone is defined by its structure and layout. Zonal boundaries are set independent of the state of occupancy. Where more than one compartment exists in a zone, there will be a common perimeter in part. 1. Fixed Temperature An alarm condition is triggered when the temperature reaches a preset level. Ideal where there is a natural fluctuation in temperature during the day. 2. Rate of Rise Designed t o detect a fire condition by monitoring the rate of rise of the room temperature. An alarm triggers when the temperature rises quickly. Suitable for areas where the temperature is normally stable. A fixed temperature element is also incorporated.
3. Fixed High Temperature

4.

5.
6.

Volumetric Detectors
Detectors that are sensitive t o smoke particle movement in a large expanse or an inaccessable area of the building. 1. Optical Beam Smoke Detectors An infra red beam is passed from a transmitter t o a receiver across the length of an enclosed space (typically a void beneath a pitched roof). Visible smoke particles interrupting the beam will trigger the alarm. 2. Ventilation Duct Smoke Detectors Air from a duct is sampled through a probe. The sample is channelled t o an externally fitted smoke detector.
Positioning and Spacing of Detectors

Spacing Beneath The Apex of a Pitched Roof
Place the detectors at the highest point of the apex.

Detectors should be sited where the greatest concentration o f smoke or heat might be expected.

Standby Power Supplies
Higher limit qualification If the Fire Brigade has a direct alarm link from the site, and is normally expected t o attend a fire within 5 minutes then the higher

limit figures can be applied.
Exceptions to the tabled height limits

Power supplies for Fire Alarm systems will usually have a standby supply from secondary batteries. The expected life for the batteries is 3-5 years. After a mains supply failure they must operate the panels for a specified duration plus the alarm load for 30 minutes. The standby duration is a minimum o f 24 hours but this will depend on the installation. For further details please contact our technical sales department.

If sections o f the ceiling totalling less than 10% of the whole area exceed the stated height limits, then point detectors can be fitted in those sections providing the following height limits are not exceeded:

Wiring and Installation
Typically mineral insulated copper cable (MICC) and other fire resistant cables are preferred for fire alarm applications. BS5839 part 1 gives full details. Vital elements o f the system (Power, Control and Sounders) demand that cable integrity must be maintained for a period after a fire has started. Cables t o the trigger devices (call points, detectors) do n o t need t o be so well protected, but must allow data transmission when the fire is sensed. Cables should be installed in accordance with good practices illustrated in the latest addition of the IEE wiring regulations and guidelines within BS5839 P t l . For further details please contact our technical sales department.

1. Minimum Sound Levels

At any point of occupancy: 65dBA or 5dBA above any background noise likely t o last more than 30 seconds. In sleeping quarters t o wake occupants: 75 dBA at the bedhead and should be installed in the bedroom. For 'P' classified premises a red external sounder labelled "Fire Alarm" is required. 2. Type of Sound All sounders fitted in a building must produce a similar distinct sound. However, in active machinery areas it may be necessary t o install louder or audio-visual sounders t o compensate for a higher background noise level. 3. Performance Although the noise level produced by a sounder may be adequate t o be heard on the other side of one adjoining wall or door; be aware that a standard door and a fire door reduces the noise level by 2OdB and 30dB respectively. Note: As an approximation; as the distance from the source is doubled so the level is reduced by 6dBA.Take care that the design sound level will not permanently impare hearing. 4. Minimum Sounder Requirement A scheme must allow for a minimum of two sounders and two sounder circuits per building. This caters for circuit or sounder failure.

When Designing a System Ensure that:
The alarm devices current consumption does not exceed the panel maximums The correct end-of-line units are allowed for and fitted t o all circuits All detectors are sited in accordance with British Standard recommendations The total current consumption of the detection devices does not exceed the panel maximums The detector or alarm circuits contain no spurs or branches The design is in accordance with the relevant British Standards (e.g. BS5839 p t l ) recommendations

EUROFIRE S e n S is a new conventional fire detection system specially designed for detectors and sounders t o be connected t o the same pair of field wires.
The Eurofire panel includes all the attributes and advantages of the standard '4-wire' panel and is available for operation in premises requiring up t o 8 zones of fire cover. Panels and repeaters can be networked using the RS485 link. Emergi-Lite joins proven advanced panel design with the pedigree of Apollo Alarm Sense detectors t o produce a reliable two-wire technology system. The Concept
A standard conventional system uses two pairs of wires (4-wire), one pair is used t o connect detectors and call

points, the other pair for alarm devices (sounders, bells or strobe lights). The Eurofire-sensa uses a common pair for the connection of detectors, callpoints and alarm sounders t o give the scheme designer greater choice, while retaining compliance with the relevant standards. Benefits can be seen with time saving, reduced wiring cost, and ease of installation.

Anatec Pro A95
Anatec Pro A95 is a 1 or 2 loop analogue addressable panel with an extensive array of advanced features and options. Loop capacity: Each loop driver, rated a t 2OOmA is capable of controlling 126 Apollo XP95 devices. Clear visual indication: Real-time information is given on the location of alarms and faults. Individual device locations are clearly accented. Modular installation: A detachable electronics package allows for enclosure 'first fix'. Cable entry is simple through top and bottom grommetted access or rear knockouts. Panel programming: Particular site requirements can be downloaded from a PC using 'cause and effect matrix' software. Text editing can be done simply from a keyboard or via a PC. A printer is optional t o produce a detailed hardcopy of events and or zonal indications. LCD: A 4 line 20 character back lit liquid crystal display is fitted t o show details from device address, zone and type status through t o location text. Engineer's menu: The system configuration can be called up on the LCD. Zonal fire display: 16 LED array is fitted as standard. Standard relay arrangement (two relays, each rated at 1A 30Vdc): One as a common fire change-over relay and one as a common fault change-over relay. Input facility: 6 input terminal sets (normally open) are provided for remote silence, reset, evacuate, silence fault buzzer, remote fault input and class change. Repeater control: A serial data is fitted t o control up t o 14 repeater panels. Programmable panel outputs: 16 open collector outputs, each rated at 100mA can be aroarammed bv the 'cause and effect

Anatec Pro Discovery
Anatec Pro Discovery is a 1 t o 4 loop analogue addressable panel compatible with Apollo Discovery and XP95 protocols. In addition t o the features of the standard panel, it offers enhanced capabilities for installations where flexability is needed and the setup requirements are more complex and involved. Highly stable loop drive capacity rated at 500mA t o accommodate a high number of loop powered sounders and other devices. Device sensitivity modes: Five different operating modes can be set from the panel according t o the demands of the premises. This feature is unique to Apollo Discovery devices - it is possible t o programme a timed change-over between heat and smoke detection at selected times of the day or week. Adjustments are possible for temporary and short term switching which may be needed because of environmental changes. Sounder flexibility: Complex patterns can be programmed t o suit the escape routing and use of the building. Zonal display: Enhanced with 32 fire and fault zonal LED indicators. Strength of processing power: All 126 addresses per loop may be used for output functions with 3 independently programmable output bits per address. Each loop is driven by a separate processor t o prevent complete failure in the unlikely event of a processing device breakdown. A suite of control and shutdown functions can be set from the panel. Input output flexibility: The panel can take up t o 255 user definable inputs. Relay and two stage alarm outputs are options available via expansion boards. Other useful services and testing devices are available (refer t o the Anatec Pro Discovery reference manuaI).

Networking Anatec Pro 1-4 Loop Discovery
With the addition of a network card, the panel can be used as part of a global system with the facility t o control and monitor a large networked site. Network cause/effect may be programmed between Anatec Pro Discovery 1-4 panels and active repeater panels. The system operates as a global communication system and does not require a master panel or computer. This approach reduces the cost and avoids the problem of a total network failure associated with master panel configuration. Up t o 15 active panels or 60 loops may be used t o create a network. Each panel can act independently and can be programmed t o respond selectively t o other panels on the network. The network card uses RS485 data communications which will transmit up t o 2km. Compact network repeater panels providing all essential control and display facilities are available for manned control points.
