5.0 OperationThis chapter describes the operational capabilities of the FX-3318 and FX-3318-NG.

5.1 Addressable/Analog Devices

The FX-3318 Series system supports one loop of Advanced Protocol and CLIP compatibledevices.

Using the Advanced Protocol the FX-3318 Series supports up to:

• 159 addressable sensors per loop.• 159 addressable modules per loop.

Using the CLIP protocol the FX-3318 Series supports up to:

• 99 analog sensors per loop.• 99 analog modules per loop.

Configuration is done via the MSW-042 software configurator.

Additional Information• The addressable loop can be configured for Class A or Class B operation.• T-tapping is not recommended.• Unshielded twisted pair (UTP) is recommended. • Conventional devices can be used in a semi addressable application in conjunction with

MIX-M502M, MIX-M502MA, MIX-M502MAP, or MIX-M502MAPA Intelligent Addressable Interface Modules.

• A short or open on the loop will activate the common trouble sequence with a latching trouble. (Class A only)

• DO NOT connect more than 25 devices to a single isolator or between isolators.• The FX-3318 Series FACPs will test the sensitivity of a single sensor address every 4

minutes. Each address will be tested once in approximately every 11 hours.

Operation

5.1.1 Supervision of DevicesThe loop interface software continuously supervises the devices on its loop against thosefound during configuration for the following conditions:

• Device missing.• Unconfigured device responding.• Two or more devices responding to the same address.• Wrong device type.

A communication or addressing error on a device is reported as a trouble on the associatedzone LED as configured. The detectors may be configured as non-verified or verified alarminputs.

5.1.2 Device LEDs• Polling the devices on the loop causes the LED to flash normally. • All device LEDs can be suppressed via the configurator. Suppressing the device LED’s

causes sounder or relay bases to not operate. AP devices do not support sounder or relay bases.

• Activating devices on the loop (alarm for an input device, active for an output device) illuminates the LED steady.

• The maximum number of active Advanced Protocol and/or CLIP devices with their LED illuminated steady is fifty (50) per loop.

5.1.3 Alarm ConditionsAlarm conditions are determined by the system continually polling the analog devices andcomparing the reported value against stored thresholds for pre-alarm and alarm conditions. Anagency approved range of thresholds is provided for each type of analog device (except forcontact devices).

Devices can be individually configured with 2 separate thresholds, “day time” and one “nighttime” or after hours operation; i.e. a device may be configured to a low sensitivity for “day time”and high sensitivity at “night time”. The day time threshold will be used unless the after hoursoperation is active. To configure threshold settings, Enable Auto After Hours must be selectedin the configurator.

Figure 7 FX-3318 Series Configurator Date and Time Settings

The panel can provide up to 280mA of current to the devices on the loop at normal standby.For device currents see Appendix F - Battery Calculations on page 78.

Operation

For further information refer to the device Installation Instructions and other documentationprovided with the addressable devices, bases, and isolators.

5.1.4 Drift CompensationDrift Compensation is built into AP devices and CLIP devices Models MIX-2251TMB and MIX-7251B, and is not performed by the panel. Drift Compensation is not provided for other CLIPdevices.

Drift compensation automatically adjusts for gradually increasing effects of dust and otheraccumulations of dirt in the detectors. It will adjust the thresholds to compensate for a detectorgoing dirty according to the gradual change in the normal clean air value received. When it canno longer compensate for an increasingly dirty detector, a dirty detector trouble is indicated forthat device.

5.1.5 Auto TestPeriodically each detector is commanded to return an alarm value to test its ability to alarm. Ifthe device fails the test, a trouble is indicated on that device. This trouble is latched untilsystem reset.

5.2 Configurable Input Types

Input devices and modules may be configured as one of many possible input types. Table 12identifies the device types assignable to each input type. For device type descriptions seesections 5.2.1 to 5.2.12.

22

Operation

5.2.1 Alarm Input (Non-Verified)An un-bypassed, non-verified alarm input entering into alarm activates the common alarmsequence.

Common Alarm Sequence• Updates un-bypassed relay, signal, and strobe outputs based upon their configuration.• Activates Alarm zone status indicators associated with the input. • Alarm input activations display first and as the highest priority on the shared display in

the common queue.• Devices configured as alarm inputs display a pre-alarm condition on the shared display

and on the alarm zone status indicator. • Restoring the pre-alarm condition clears the status. If the input goes from pre-alarm to

alarm, the pre-alarm status will be replaced with the alarm status for the input. • Devices configured as alarm inputs display an alarm condition on the shared display

and on the alarm zone status indicator. • Once an alarm input is in alarm the alarm condition is latched until system reset

(changes in status from alarm to pre-alarm or to normal are ignored).

5.2.2 Supervisory InputsDevices can be configured as latching or non-latching supervisory inputs. Any un-bypassedsupervisory input entering alarm activates the common supervisory sequence.

Common Supervisory Sequence• Updates un-bypassed relay, signal, and strobe outputs based upon their configuration.• Activates Supervisory zone status indicators associated with the input. • Supervisory input activations display as the second highest priority on the shared

display in the common queue.• Devices configured as supervisory inputs display as supervisory conditions on the

shared display and on the supervisory zone status indicator. • Restoring the non-latching supervisory input returns all outputs correlated to the input,

that are not correlated to another active input, to normal.• Zone display indicators update announcing the input is no longer active and removes

the message from the shared display common queue.

23

Operation

• If there are no other active supervisory inputs the common supervisory condition will be restored.

Latched supervisory inputs operate the same as non-latched supervisory inputs with oneexception:

• A normal to off-normal status change indication shall be latched and only manually resettable at the control unit or display and control centre.

5.2.3 Building/Property Safety InputBuilding/Property Safety Inputs may include but are not limited to: fan status, dampers,motors, elevators, telephones, etc.

Building/Property Safety Inputs may be programmed to LED Indicators. The input status willactivate the LED as configured.

• Building input activations display as the third highest priority on the shared display in the common queue. They are lower than supervisory and higher than troubles.

• May also be programmed to relay, signal, and strobe outputs.

• When an un-bypassed building circuit activates, the status display and programmed outputs are activated.

• Restoring the building status returns all outputs correlated to the input, that are not correlated to another active input, to normal.

5.2.4 Priority AlarmIncreases the polling frequency and optimizes the transmission of data from the device.

5.2.5 Trouble-Only InputAn active condition on an un-bypassed trouble-only input initiates the common troublesequence as a non-latching trouble.

• Activates Trouble zone status indicators associated with the input. • Trouble input activations display as the lowest priority on the shared display in the

common queue.• May also be programmed to relay, signal, and strobe outputs.

Caution: Correlating signal and strobe devices to building/property safety inputsrequires the approval of the AHJ and are not to be used for fire events.

Note: Devices used for building inputs are to be isolated from fire operation. It isrequired that these devices are placed on a separate SLC loop if Class B wiringis used, otherwise wire the devices according to Class X (Style 7) to accomplishisolation.

Note: Trouble conditions initiated as a result of a trouble-only input activating isseparate from the circuit or device supervision trouble.

25

Operation

5.2.12 Verified Alarm InputUn-bypassed verified alarm inputs entering into alarm are verified over a period of time todetermine if the alarm condition is valid.

Addressable / Analog Device Verification Process

If the system is not already in alarm:

1. A device entering into alarm initiates a 30 second delay timer.

2. When the 30 second delay times out the device is monitored for the next 60 seconds.

3. If the same device enters into alarm again during this time the alarm is confirmed. The following will also confirm the alarm:

• Any additional Alarm Input activating aborts the verification process and confirmsthe alarm.

• Any trouble detected on the circuit being verified aborts the verification processand confirms the alarm.

LED Indication

The Alarm Zone LED indicator flashes for the duration of the verification process. If the alarmis not confirmed the LED turns off. If the alarm is confirmed the LED illuminates steady.

5.3 Output TypesOutput devices and modules may be configured as one of many possible output types. Table13 identifies the device types assignable to each output type. For device type descriptions seesections 5.3.1 to 5.3.3

Output modules on the addressable/analog loop may be configured as any of the followingoutput types:

• Signals• Strobes• Relay outputs

Note: Conventional smoke detectors cannot utilize alarm verification with M502(AP)zone modules.i

26

Operation

Additional Operation Features• When using CLIP devices once the FACP activates the sensor LED, an attached Relay/

Sounder base and any Remote Devices wired to the base are also activated. Suppressing the device LED via the NF flag in the configurator means the Relay/Sounder base and any Remote devices wired to the base will not activate.

• When using AP devices the FACP activates the sensor LED and the Remote Device output separately. Suppressing the device LED via the NF flag in the configurator still allows the activation of any remote device wired to the base. The AP protocol does not support Relay/Sounder Bases at this time+.

• The panel can synchronize strobes directly without the use of the synchronous module.• Depending on the device, the system can detect open and short troubles and report it as

an output circuit trouble.

5.3.1 Signal OutputFor audible devices such as bells and piezo mini-horns. Signals operate at the evacuationrate.

5.3.2 Strobe Type SettingsNormal (non-synchronized)

• Strobe circuits operate similar to signals except that they are always turned ON continuously (they are not affected by the alert or evacuation rates) if configured as Normal.

• Configuring strobes as Normal does not use a sync protocol for the output circuit. • Silenceable or non-silenceable.

Synchronized

Output circuits can be configured with various synchronization protocols.

When the output circuit is configured as strobe and also configured as non-silenceable and thedevice used on the output is a combination of horn and strobe, then if the signal silence isactivated while the circuit is active the horn(s) are silenced while the strobe keeps on flashing.

Synchronized strobes and strobe/horn models of the following manufacturers are supported: System Sensor, Wheelock, Secutron, and Mircom.

27

Operation

5.3.3 Relay OutputUn-bypassed relay outputs are activated if any un-bypassed input circuit or common systemstatus which has been programmed to it is active. If the relay is configured as silenceable it isinhibited when common auxiliary disconnect is active. Relays also turned off if they arebypassed or if all inputs and system status correlated to the Relay Output are restored orbypassed.

5.4 NAC Circuit Operation

NAC Circuits can be configured as

• Signal Output• Strobe Output• Relay Output

For more information on Outputs see section 5.3 Output Types.

Powered output circuits are supervised while they are not active for both open circuits andshorts.

The circuit will not be activated if there is a short trouble on the circuit. It will be activated if anopen trouble is indicated. A circuit trouble activates the common trouble sequence as a non-latching trouble. Since open circuit supervision does not operate while the circuit is in alarm, ifthe circuit was in trouble before it was activated, it will still indicate trouble while active. Thetrouble condition will be re-evaluated when supervision resumes.

Output circuits configured as strobes can have sync protocol for synchronization if configured.Certain strobe and strobe/horns models of the following brands are supported:

• Mircom• Secutron• System Sensor• Wheelock

For a complete list of compatible Horn/Strobes see section 9.1 FX-3318 and FX-3318-NGCompatible Horn/Strobes.

When configured as normal, the output circuit is ON continuously when activated and does notuse any sync protocol. When configured as non-silenceable strobes, the strobes cannot besilenced, but the horn can be silenced by pressing the 'signal silence' button.

If the strobe is configured as silenceable strobe both the horn and the strobe are silenced(stopped) by pressing the 'signal silence' button.

Operation

5.5 Single Stage OperationIn a single stage system, all alarm inputs are treated in a similar manner. Alarm inputs includeany of the following:

• Non-verified alarm• Verified alarm• Waterflow alarm• Sprinkler alarm

Any of the above alarm inputs activating when the panel is not already in alarm cause thefollowing:

• The buzzer sounds steady.• Cancels active fire drill.• Common Alarm LED turns ON.• Common Alarm relay activates if Aux disconnect is not active.• The Auto Signal Silence timer activates (if configured).• The Signal Silence Inhibit timer activates (if configured).• If Aux disconnect is not active, activates all non-disconnected indicating circuits

programmed to the input.• Activates non-disconnected strobes associated with the input.• Activates non-disconnected signals associated with the input at the evacuation rate.

Subsequent alarms when the panel is already in alarm, cause the following:

• The alert buzzer sounds steady.• Resounds silenced signals, turns off the Signal Silence LED, and restarts the Auto

Signal Silence timer (if configured).• Activates continuously any additional non-disconnected strobes associated with the

input.• Activates at the evacuation rate any additional non-disconnected signals associated

with the new input.

5.6 Evacuation CodesThe following Evacuation codes can be configured for the FX-3318 Series FACPs.

5.7 Positive Alarm Sequence

In a Positive Alarm Sequence (PAS) system, only smoke detectors can be dedicated as PASinputs. PAS Inputs can only be from the following process types:

• Non-verified alarm• Verified alarm

Any of these alarm inputs activating when the panel is not already in alarm causes thefollowing:

• Buzzer sounds steady.• Cancels active fire drill.• Common Alarm LED turns ON.• Individual zone LED (if programmed) turns ON.• Common Alarm relay does not activate.• PAS timer starts for 15 seconds.• All outputs programmed to the input are not activated.

When the PAS alarm has been acknowledged by pressing the Alarm Acknowledge buttonwithin 15 seconds, the following sequence occurs:

• Buzzer silences• Common Alarm LED remains ON.• Individual zone LED (if programmed) remains ON.• PAS timer starts for 180 seconds (3 minutes). This is the time allotted to reset the

system and avoid any true alarm sequence.

When the PAS alarm has been acknowledged within the given time limits and the systemresets, the following occurs:

• The buzzer remains silenced.• Common Alarm LED turns OFF.• Individual zone LED (if programmed) turns OFF.• Cancels the alarm event with no log reference.• Fire alarm system returns to normal.

If at any time during the Positive Alarm Sequence a second alarm (PAS or otherwise) isactuated or the given time limits expire, the fire alarm will go into evacuation mode and thefollowing occurs:

• Common Alarm relay activates if Aux disconnect is not active.• The Auto Signal Silence timer activates (if configured).• The Signal Silence Inhibit timer activates (if configured).

Continuous On 100% of the time.

Wiring

7.7 System CheckoutThe following are the recommended steps before and during the powering up of the FX-3318and FX-3318-NG.

7.7.1 Before Turning The Power ON1. To prevent sparking, DO NOT connect the batteries first. Connecting the batteries is only

to be done after the system has been powered from the main AC Supply.2. Check all field (external) wiring for opens, shorts, and ground.3. Check that all interconnection cables are secure, and that all connectors are plugged-in

properly.4. Check all Jumpers and Switches for proper setting.5. Check the AC power wiring for proper connection.6. Check that the chassis is connected to EARTH GROUND (cold water pipe).7. Close the front cover plate before powering the system from main AC supply.

7.7.2 Power-up Procedure1. After completing 7.7.1 Before Turning The Power ON procedures, power-up the panel.

The green AC-ON LED should illuminate.2. Since the batteries are not connected, the Battery Trouble LED should illuminate, the

Common Trouble LED should flash and the Trouble Relay (on the main board) will be active.

3. Connect the batteries while observing correct polarity; the red wire is positive (+) and black wire is negative (-).

4. All indicators should extinguish except for normal power AC-ON green LED.

7.8 TroubleshootingThe following are common methods to solving Circuit Ground Fault, Battery and Commontroubles.

7.8.1 Circuit TroubleNormally when a circuit trouble occurs, the Common Trouble indicator will be illuminated andthe common trouble relay will be active. Additionally, the corresponding LED on the mainboard will be illuminated. This can be viewed by opening the panel and looking the top of theboard. To correct the fault, check for open wiring on that particular circuit loop.

7.8.2 Ground Fault This panel has a common ground fault detector. To correct the fault, check for any externalwiring touching the chassis or other Earth Ground connection.

7.8.3 Battery Trouble Check for the presence of batteries and their conditions. Low voltage (below 20.4V) will causea battery trouble. If battery trouble condition persists, replace batteries as soon as possible.

7.8.4 Common Trouble If only a common trouble is indicated on the main panel and none of those above confirmingtrouble indicators are on, then check the following for possible fault

• any missing interconnection wiring• improperly secured cabling

Warranty and Warning Information

The testing should include all sensing devices, keypads, consoles, alarm indicating devices and any other operational devices that are part of the system.

NOTE TO USERS:

All Mircom Systems have been carefully designed to be as effective as possible. However,there are circ*mstances where they may not provide protection. Some reasons for systemfailure include the following. The end user can minimize the occurrence of any of the followingby proper training, testing and maintenance of the Mircom Systems:

6. Inadequate Testing and Maintenance. It is imperative that the systems be periodically tested and subjected to preventative maintenance. Best practices and local authority having jurisdiction determine the frequency and type of testing that is required at a minimum. Mircom System may not function properly, and the occurrence of other system failures identified below may not be minimized, if the periodic testing and maintenance of Mircom Systems is not completed with diligence and as required.

7. Improper Operation. It is important that all system users be trained in the correct operation of the alarm system and that they know how to respond when the system indicates an alarm. A Mircom System may not function as intended during an emergency situation where the user is unable to operate a panic or emergency switch by reason of permanent or temporary physical disability, inability to reach the device in time, unfamiliarity with the correct operation, or related circ*mstances.

8. Insufficient Time. There may be circ*mstances when a Mircom System will operate as intended, yet the occupants will not be protected from the emergency due to their inability to respond to the warnings in a timely manner. If the system is monitored, the response may not occur in time enough to protect the occupants or their belongings.

9. Carelessness or Safety Hazards. Moreover, smoke detectors may not provide timely warning of fires caused by carelessness or safety hazards such as smoking in bed, violent explosions, escaping gas, improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits or children playing with matches or arson.

10. Power Failure. Some Mircom System components require adequate electrical power supply to operate. Examples include: smoke detectors, beacons, HVAC, and lighting controllers. If a device operates only by AC power, any interruption, however brief, will render that device inoperative while it does not have power. Power interruptions of any length are often accompanied by voltage fluctuations which may damage Mircom Systems or other electronic equipment. After a power interruption has occurred, immediately conduct a complete system test to ensure that the system operates as intended.

11. Battery Failure. If the Mircom System or any device connected to the system operates from batteries it is possible for the batteries to fail. Even if the batteries have not failed, they must be fully charged, in good condition, and installed correctly. Some Mircom Systems use replaceable batteries, which have a limited life-span. The expected battery life is variable and in part dependent on the device environment, usage and type. Ambient conditions such as high humidity, high or low temperatures, or large temperature fluctuations may reduce the expected battery life. Moreover, some Mircom Systems do not have a battery monitor that would alert the user in the event that the battery is nearing its end of life. Regular testing and replacements are vital for ensuring that the batteries function as expected, whether or not a device has a low-battery monitor.

12. Physical Obstructions. Motion sensors that are part of a Mircom System must be kept clear of any obstacles which impede the sensors’ ability to detect movement. Signals being communicated by a Mircom System may not reach the receiver if an item (such as metal, water, or concrete) is placed on or near the radio path. Deliberate jamming or other inadvertent radio signal interference can also negatively affect system operation.

Warranty and Warning Information

13. Wireless Devices Placement Proximity. Moreover all wireless devices must be a minimum and maximum distance away from large metal objects, such as refrigerators. You are required to consult the specific Mircom System manual and application guide for any maximum distances required between devices and suggested placement of wireless devices for optimal functioning.

14. Failure to Trigger Sensors. Moreover, Mircom Systems may fail to operate as intended if motion, heat, or smoke sensors are not triggered.

a. Sensors in a fire system may fail to be triggered when the fire is in a chimney, walls, roof, or on the other side of closed doors. Smoke and heat detectors may not detect smoke or heat from fires on another level of the residence or building. In this situation the control panel may not alert occupants of a fire.

b. Sensors in a nurse call system may fail to be triggered when movement is occurring outside of the motion sensors’ range. For example, if movement is occurring on the other side of closed doors or on another level of the residence or building the motion detector may not be triggered. In this situation the central controller may not register an alarm signal.

15. Interference with Audible Notification Appliances. Audible notification appliances may be interfered with by other noise sources such as stereos, radios, televisions, air conditioners, appliances, or passing traffic. Audible notification appliances, however loud, may not be heard by a hearing-impaired person.

16. Other Impairments. Alarm notification appliances such as sirens, bells, horns, or strobes may not warn or waken a sleeping occupant if there is an intervening wall or door. It is less likely that the occupants will be alerted or awakened when notification appliances are located on a different level of the residence or premise.

17. Software Malfunction. Most Mircom Systems contain software. No warranties are provided as to the software components of any products or stand-alone software products within a Mircom System. For a full statement of the warranties and exclusions and limitations of liability please refer to the company’s standard Terms and Conditions and Warranties.

18. Telephone Lines Malfunction. Telephone service can cause system failure where telephone lines are relied upon by a Mircom System. Alarms and information coming from a Mircom System may not be transmitted if a phone line is out of service or busy for a certain period of time. Alarms and information may not be transmitted where telephone lines have been compromised by criminal tampering, local construction, storms or earthquakes.

19. Component Failure. Although every effort has been made to make this Mircom System as reliable as possible, the system may fail to function as intended due to the failure of a component.

20. Integrated Products. Mircom System might not function as intended if it is connected to a non-Mircom product or to a Mircom product that is deemed non-compatible with a particular Mircom System. A list of compatible products can be requested and obtained.
