The fire detection control panel BC216-1was drafted as a compact control panel for application in fire detection systems of small and medium size. The control panel BCnet216 is based on the successful concept of theBC216-1and additionally offers all advantages of a modern network technology. It consists of several sectional control panels which are allocated exactly where they are needed most - in the vicinity of the fire detectors. This "network" control panel is applied in fire detection systems of medium to very large size and spatially highly ramified systems. Due to network technology the connections of the fire detectors to the control panel can be established vastly more efficient than in conventional fire detection technology.

Due to the modular structure of the control panels these products of high quality can be combined to highly flexible systems of fire detection technology. Besides less cabling work, the failure safety of the system is vastly improved by combining several intelligent sectional control panels to an overall system by means of network technology.

The high failure safety, the modular structure using standardized components, the simplicity of operation but also the high quality standards of LST for development and manufacture classify the fire detection control panels BC216-1and BCnet216 as the most modern high performance control panels available in the world.

Chapter 1 • Introduction

User Manual Series BC216 / Part A

This User Manual is not designed as a description of or as an operating instruction for a fire detection system. Therefore, detailed instructions for how to act in case of an alarm or a fault are not given. Individual differences in the variety of components used and in the setup are so extensive that an efficient general description of the system or of the organization in case of an alarm would not be possible.

Due to national guidelines or regulations and local restrictions, some of the described functions of the control panel can be used only selectively or maybe even not at all. Authorization to operate the control panel is also regulated differently in different communities. Furthermore, many features are only available if the appropriate optional componentries are installed. Which of the possible functions of the control panel of your fire detection system are admissible and efficient is decided by the authorized installer. Relevant information can be found in the description of your fire detection system. It is no deficiency if your fire detection system does not use all features described in this User Manual.

This User Manual describes the variety of functions of the fire detection control panels of the Series BC216 that are valid for the operating software PL149 V4.1106. (How to access the version number of the software is described from page 46 in Chapter 4.7.12.9: "Displaying the installed componentries - submenu point [Componentries]"). Control panels using software with a different version number can differ in certain functions from the software described in this Manual.

Menupoints and displays of the LC-displayare put in brackets in this text. In case of writing the displays in a"display-frame",the brackets are left out.

1.2Important hints for the user and the installer

Get to know the functions and operation of the control panel and their effects on the whole fire detection system right away, so that you can take appropriate measures quickly and without delay in case of fire. A short summary of the most important operations of the control panel is included in the delivery documents of the control panel (Operation Manual In Short Form). This summary is supposed to be an instructional booklet for the user. It does not replace the Manual at all! Contained in the summary is a survey where the authorized installer has recorded the actual setup of the basic functions of the control panel. On this setup depend the workings, the handling and the displays of the different parts of the control panel that are described in general terms in this Manual. Also pay attention to the overall description of your fire detection system!

Peripheral devices like fire detectors, remote signalling and operating units, signalling equipment, etc., used in addition to the control panel in a fire detection system are only mentioned as examples and are not described in detail in this User Manual.

Fire detection systems and devices are used to detect fire and to raise alarm rapidly. Since this equipment is designed to protect life and property from the dangers of fire, it has to be planned, installed and put into operation very carefully by competent and skilled technicians. Changes in the use of rooms or

in the expansion of the area surveilled require careful replanning and adaptation of the fire detection system.

The fire detection system has to be checked and maintained regularly (at least once a year) by trained and skilled personnel in order to maintain its functions and to avoid false alarms.

For planning, installing, modifying, maintaining and servicing your fire detection system, be sure to commission only specialists who are demonstrably trained specifically for the functions of the fire detection control panel BC216-1or BCnet216 by Labor Strauss Sicherungsanlagenbau Ges.m.b.H. Wien (LST), or by persons being explicitly authorized by LST.

The control panel has to be protected from moisture and damage of any kind. It is to be installed in a dry and clean room easy accessible to the safety personnel. The temperature has to be within the range of -5°Cand +50°C. For the fire detection control panel BCnet216, whose components are usually spread in the surveilled area, these requirements are equally valid for all components of the control panel.

Do not use corrosive or abrasive cleaners for cleaning the case or the keypad; use only mild household cleaners. Water or other fluids under no circumstances may enter the interior of the case!

Prior to opening a case, the mains voltage of the regarding case has to be shut down and secured against restart! Consider that, if the mains voltage is connected, there are parts in the open case of the control panel that carry life-endangering voltage! The protective case of these parts may never be removed.

Further security hints for the installer are given in Part B of this User Manual.

1.2.1What to do in case of a fire alarm

Keep calm in case of a fire alarm. Silence the internal buzzer of the control panel BC216-1or of all BCnet sectional control panels of the network control panel BCnet216 by using the button 'Silence buzzer'. All further actions such as, e.g., identifying the alarming detector zone, activating the delay time, exploring the fire location, starting to extinguish the fire, instructing the fire brigade, etc., depend on the local circumstances. These actions - summarily called "organization in case of an alarm" - are to be determined by both the user of the system and the fire brigade at the time when the control panel is planned and put in operation. If thelight-emittingdiode 'Call fire brigade' is illuminated on the fire detection control panel or your fire detection system is not connected to a permanently manned designated alarm respondent (e.g., the fire brigade), you have to notify the fire brigade yourself immediately. Further hints are given starting page 50 in Chapter 5.2: "Fire alarm condition".

1.2.2What to do in case of a fault

The fire detection control panel Series BC216 as well as the connected components of your whole fire detection system are in operation for 24 hours a day - over many years. Although the components have been built with highest care and are checked thoroughly and regularly during maintenance, faults can occur due to such factors as dirty fire detectors, malfunctioning components, damage, etc. Different faults have different effects on the functioning of the alarm system, ranging from "no effect" to "complete shutdown" of the fire detection system.

In order to maintain the most important functions of the control panel in case of malfunctions in single parts of the control panel, the manufacturer has included elaborate security-measuresthat were developed during many years of experience with fire alarm technology. Nevertheless, a total guarantee for the proper working of the control panel in case of a fault cannot be given, especially if two or more malfunctions occur simultaneously.

If the display or a light-emittingdiode indicates a fault, you have to assume that the corresponding part of the system does not work. Make sure that the system is reconditioned fast. In some cases, such as, e.g., a mains power fault message, caused by erroneous shutdown, the reconditioning may be carried out by yourself. In most cases, however, you will have to commission a trained and authorized specialized company (preferably the company that performs the periodic maintenance of your system) to carry

HB216AE.SAM / 0130 / AN9161202

User Manual Series BC216 / Part A

out the reconditioning. Together with the fire prevention officer you have to determine the additional protective measures that are to be taken until the system is fully operational again. Such measures might include, e.g., special attention by your personnel or fire watches in the area where the fault has occurred.

Two special faults are to be emphasized:

The light-emittingdiode 'POWER' is not illuminated:

If nothing else is illuminated on the control panel (e.g., when testing the displays by the function "display test"), it is likely that the mains power, as well as the emergency power of the corresponding BCnet sectional control panel are shut off. Therefore, the part of the fire detection system which was surveilled by this BCnet sectional control panel is out of function! If the fire detection control panel only consists of one control panelBC216-1,the whole fire detection system is out of function!

The light-emittingdiode 'System fault' is illuminated or flashing:

This is a sign that important parts of the control panel BC216-1(or with the fire detection control panel BCnet216 the corresponding BCnet sectional control panel) are out of function. The displaying of events on the display is affected. But the reception of alarms from unaffected parts of the system and their transmission to the primary transmitting device (to the fire brigade, usually), to the primary alarming device and to the displays on the control panel will continue to work due to special measures built into the system.

In this state of fault the control panel may not be able to distinguish between alarms of fire detector zones, alarms of fault detector zones and technical alarms. Every alarm message is evaluated as fire alarm message.

Further information on faults of the fire detection control panel are found from page 58 in Chapter 5.5: "Fault-messagecondition".

Regular checks of the functions of the control panel and of the fire detection system by the person responsible for fire protection ensures proper functioning of the fire detection system. See from page 65 in Chapter 6.1: "Periodic function tests".

All further claims are excluded, especially those regarding secondary damages. Beyond these regulations, the current regulations of the "Allgemeinen Lieferbedingungen der Elektroindustrie" are in effect.

1.5Special terms

Some of the special terms often used in this manual are defined in the following:

Actuation

Actuations are used to automatically activate fire control systems (e.g., ventilation, fire doors, etc.) in case of an alarm.

Alarm

Warning of an existing danger to persons and property.

Alarm delay procedure

Appliance to delay the automatic transmission to the public fire report post (e.g., the fire brigade) for a set amount of time.

Alarm verification

Automatic verification of an alarm by checking, if the signs of fire last longer than a set amount of time (e.g., 1 minute).

Alarming device

Equipment which is connected to the control panel and whose duty it is to alarm the public (e.g., a siren). The alarming device for fire messages which can also be operated - additionally to the menu control - via the buttons in the field 'ALARM. DEVICE 1' of the key pad of the control panel is called primary alarming device.

AUTO-setup

After confirming the appropriate menu point during putting the control panel into operation, the control panel automatically recognizes the built-in-componentsas well as the external devices (e.g., fire detectors) and sets the setup for these parts to standard setup. On the basis of the standard setup, the authorized installer sets the parameters of the control panel using thesite-specificdata.

BCnet sectional control panel

Part of a fire detection control panel BCnet216 which is installed in the surveilled area of the fire detection system and to which fire detectors, among others, are connected. BCnet sectional control panels can either be equipped with an own display and operating unit and therefore be directly operatable, or without own display and operating unit to be operated only from another - operable - BCnet sectional control panel, e.g. the main operating unit.

Competent installer

The company which is acquainted with local installation regulations, has adequate experience in planning and building fire detection systems and whose technicians are periodically trained (at least once a year) by the manufacturer of the fire detection system and the fire detection control panel on the components of the fire detection system.

Deceptive alarm

A fire alarm, activated by automatic fire detectors that react to signs that are similar to those of fire but are caused by other agents, such as welding, steam, heat, etc.

Chapter 1 • Introduction

User Manual Series BC216 / Part A

Delay time

The delay time consists of reactionand exploration time. During the reaction period the activation of the transmitting devices for fire alarm messages can be delayed during day-operationof the fire detection system. Exploration time allows the user to find the cause of the alarm and to decide if the fire brigade indeed should be notified.

Detection area

A particular part of a surveilled area where the fire detectors installed there share a display on the fire detection control panel.

Detector line

Branch cable wiring that connects fire detectors (usually conventional detectors) to the fire detection control panel.

Detector zone

The fire detectors of a surveilled area that share a display on the fire detection control panel are summed up to detector zones. Detector zones can be set for fire alarm, fault alarm and technical messages on the fire detection control panel Series BC216.

Disablement

Deliberately set condition of a fire detection system, where either the whole system or parts of it are put out of operation.

False alarm

Alarm that is released because of a technical fault in the fire detection system.

Fault detector

A fault detector transmits an appropriate signal to the control panel if a fault has occurred such as, e.g., a loss of weight of the extinguishing agent in an extinguishing system.

Fire brigade control unit

This optional unit indicates the most important operational conditions in standardized form and thus enables the fire brigade to coordinate the necessary procedures efficiently.

Fire control system

Fire protection systems or other equipment (e.g., ventilation, fire doors, automatic gas extinguishing systems, elevators) that will be activated automatically in case of fire.

Fire detector (automatic)

Automatic fire detectors test continually or periodically the presence of one or more signs of fire. Automatic fire detectors differ by the kind of signs they are observing, such as smoke, heat, flame, etc.

Fire detector (non-automatic)

Non-automaticfire detectors are designed to be activated manually. Usually, a simple mechanical safeguard (e.g., a pane of glass is used in the manual call point) has to be removed before the fire detector can be activated.

GSSnet member

The Global Security System GSSnet consists of the single components of the system and the failuresafe redundant data line which combines the components to one unit. All system components such as BCnet sectional control panels, remote display and operating units, gateways, etc. connected to this data line are named GSSnet members. Each GSSnet member is assigned a GSSnet member number during putting the system into operation.

Interdependence of two detectors

Measure to verify an alarm. The state of alarm is only attained after two fire detectors of the same detector zone have detected signs of fire. Is the second detector not activated within a short time (e.g., 2 minutes) after the activation of the first detector, the first detector is reset automatically by the control panel. The activation of the first detector is shown on the LC-displayas"pre-alarm".Using the fire detection control panelBC216-1or when using the fire detection control panel BCnet216 in each of BCnet sectional control panels, also more than two detectors can be combined to a "multiple detector" - dependency, still called "interdependence of two detectors" for simplicity.

Loop

Ring-shapedwiring withbi-directionaldata-busto connect intelligent fire detectors (e.g., sensors, detectors) and actuation devices to the fire detection control panel. A wire breakage in the loop leads to a fault display on the control panel but does not affect the functions of the connected devices. Isolation elements limit the effect of ashort-circuitin the wiring, so that ashort-circuitwill either have no effect at all or impair only one or a few devices.

Main operating unit

The operable BCnet sectional control panel of a fire detection control panel BCnet216 which, besides supervising the fire detectors, etc., also realizes network administration of a GSSnet. All events of the fire detection control panel BCnet216 are basically displayed on the main operating unit and all BCnet sectional control panels can be operated via the main operating unit.

Maintainer

The company (or its representative) who carries out maintenance, reconditioning and repairs. Similar requirements apply to the maintainer and to the competent installer but the maintainer additionally has to be trained periodically (at least once a year) by the manufacturer of the fire detection system and the fire detection control panel in maintenance and reconditioning.

Maintenance

The totality of preventive measures to maintain the functions of a fire detection system.

Network control panel

The control panel consists of single BCnet sectional control panels which are arranged locally spread in the surveillance area of the fire alarm system and connected via a redundant network. These BCnet sectional control panels together form a virtual overall control panel.

At least one of these BCnet sectional control panels is defined as main operating unit via which the network administration is executed. The main operating unit is equipped with a display and operating unit; all further BCnet sectional control panels may also be equipped with a display and operating unit but also can work without display and operating unit.

Organization in case of an alarm

The total of all planned measures that are in place to warn, rescue, prevent the fire from spreading, fight the fire and for orientation.

Pre-alarm

The information that the first detector in an interdependence of two detectors has detected signs of fire. The pre-alarmis shown on theLC-display,but usually no other signalling is taking place. Thepre-alarmis either terminated automatically after a short while or turns into a fire alarm when a second detector of the interdependence of two detectors is activated.

Primary alarming device

See "Alarming device"

Primary transmitting device

See "Transmitting device for fire alarm messages"

Reset

An activated device (e.g. an alarming device) is returned to inactive condition by a reset; this device will not be disabled permanently. A reset device can be renewedly activated automatically by a new event (e.g. a new alarm).

Setting of the parameters

Setting of the site-specificparameters on the fire detection control panel by the authorized installer when the system is put into operation or modified. The user can not modify the parameters.

Signs of fire

Changes in measurable conditions in the vicinity of an initial fire, e.g., temperature.

Transmitting device for fire alarm messages

Equipment for transmitting a fire alarm to a public fire report post (e.g., fire brigade). The fire alarm, evaluated by the control panel, is transmitted to the transmitting device, which is usually mounted close to the control panel. The transmitting device alarms the public fire report post by us-

ing proper equipment for transmission (e.g., continually monitored telephone cables). The transmitting device for fire alarm messages which can also be operated - additionally to the menu control - via the buttons in the field 'TRANSM. DEVICE 1' of the key pad of the control panel is called primary transmitting device. The possibility of alarm delay (also see the terms "Alarm delay procedure", "Delay time") is exclusively existing for the primary transmitting device.

Two-zonedependency

Measure to guard against deceptive activation of actuations (e.g., of an extinguishing system). The activation of the corresponding parts of the system takes place only after at least one fire detector in each of the two linked detector zones have detected signs of fire. Using the fire detection control panel BC216-1or when using the fire detection control panel BCnet216, in every BCnet sectional control panel, also more than two detector zones can be combined to a "multiple detector zone" - dependency, still called"two-zonedependency" for simplicity.

User

Person(s) who are responsible for the operation and the use of the fire detection system.

The fire detection control panel is the compact processing unit of a fire detection system - all information from the system is received here. Automatic fire detectors that react to signs of fire such as smoke, radiation, heat, etc., as well as manual call points are combined in detector zones and are wired to the control panel. The data transmitted by the fire detectors are analyzed and rated in the fire detection control panel. The fire detection control panel decides if the situation is to be rated as a fire alarm. Does the control panel decide for "fire alarm", the alarming devices and the fire control systems are automatically activated by the fire detection control panel, and the alarm is transmitted to the public fire report post.

Controls that are activated by the fire detection control panel can comprise single functions (e.g., switching off the ventilation) as well as elements combined to zones (e.g., several door closers in a fire area).

2.2Typical construction of a fire detection system with network control panel BCnet216

Basically the network fire detection control panel BCnet216 does not work differently than described from page 15 in Chapter 2.1: "Typical construction of a fire detection system with control panel BC216-1".The most essential difference to a single control panel is that the network fire detection control panel does not form a physical unit but consists of single sectional control panels which are arranged throughout the surveilled area of the fire detection system and which are combined to a virtual control panel by a network cable interconnected in a circular pattern. A maximum of failure proofness andcost-efficiencyis achieved with this technique of optimizing the cabling system.

Basically all fire detectors and other devices that may be connected to a stand-alonecontrol panel of typeBC216-1may also be connected to every single of these BCnet sectional control panels (see from page 15 in Chapter 2.1: "Typical construction of a fire detection system with control panelBC216-1").The operation of the network control panels by the user is made as usual like with a "one case" - fire detection control panel. Either the whole control panel can be operated via one or more display and operating units of BCnet sectional control panels or via remote display and operating units or only parts of the whole system can be operated by the display and operating units, depending on the requirements. In none of the different possibilities the user will recognize that in reality the control panel consists of several components spread over a wide range of space.

Further devices (e.g. remote display and operating units, gateways for the connection to foreign networks, etc.) can be embedded in the network of a network fire detection control panel as GSSnet member in addition to BCnet sectional control panels.

2.3Features of the fire detection control panel Series BC216

2.3.1Fire detection control panel BC216-1(stand-alone)

The fire detection control panel BC216-1is designed as compactstand-alonecontrol panel to be used in a modern fire detection system of small and medium size as a receiving and controlling unit. Due to its modular construction and its flexibility in the setting of parameters, it can be very easily adapted to different demands and thus generally can be used in a large variety of circumstances. The fire detection control panelBC216-1sets new standards for user comfort, variety of functions and security in the fire alarm technology, which benefit the user as well as the installer of the fire detection system. An overview of the most important features of the control panel is provided in the following list.

Depending on the built-intechnology, the detectors of the fire detection system are connected to the control panel either byone or two loops in intelligent ADMPROorADM-technologywith up to 128 detector zones in each loop, or by8 or 16 detector zones in addressable conventional technology, or by a combination of the two technologies. The decision, which technology should be used, therefore can be made without compromises, considering only fire protection criteria.

The parameters of the detector zones can be set for detector zones for fire, detector zones forfault or for detector zones fortechnical messages.

A supervised siren output,dry relay contacts for fire alarm and fault alarm, and 16open-collector outputs with open parameters for general activation purposes are supplied to show conditions of operation and to activate fire protection systems.

The Info display with its 4-line illuminated LC-display provides text to keep you informed of all current events. Text consisting of 20 characters each line can be used not only for detectors and detector zones, but also for activation outputs, transmitting devices, etc. This information makes it possible to locate the occurrence of the event exactly and to act fast in case of an emergency.

For separate displaying of events of detector zones, actuations, transmitting devices, etc., and thus to provide higher transparency, the optional 48 double LED-display with open parameters can be used. For lettering the display insert and letter the supplied insertable labels individually.

Four levels of authorization guarantee high safety against unauthorized access. Two of these authorization levels are secured by the use of freely setable codes.

The simple operating structure enables the user to operate the control panel without stress. Using easy understandable menus, logically connected sequences are combined into simple operations. The experienced user can execute the most important operations very fast without having to scroll through every single menu point, by using themenu-quick-operation.

The supervised connection of two independent transmitting devices for connecting the fire detection system to a designated alarm respondent (e.g., the fire brigade) and to acountry-specificfire brigade control unit, the optional Fire Brigade Interface is to be used.

In case of an alarm, the user can explore the possible danger prior to the transmission of the fire alarm to the fire brigade by using the alarm delay procedure with deadman´s handle.

The standard built-inINFO-bus makes the connection of a fire brigade control unit and of display devices, transmission devices for remote indication units and of other information devices using wiresaving technology possible.

A 32-bit high performance microprocessor system together with additional extra auxiliary microprocessors on the componentries is operated by a special real time multi tasking operating system and, together with redundant logic for processing, provides clarity and security.

Open parameters of the control panel, parameters of detectors and modules, as well as display texts, outputs and interfaces to peripheral devices emphasize the universal flexibility of the control panel.

The parameters of the control panel are set by the authorized installer either by using the keypad of the control panel, by using a standard PC keyboard, or by using a PC (Notebook) and the comfortable parameter setup software. Text, for example, can be entered or changed easily by using a PC keyboard.

The power supply from the mains power is ensured by a switched power unit with50W rated power, that also supplies enough energy for the connected peripheral devices. Low current consumption, low heat emission and by that, high reliability is guaranteed by the high efficiency of the switched power unit.

A sufficiently dimensioned optional stand-by battery ensures that the fire detection system will continue to work unaffectedly for a long time in case of mains power shut down. Thestand-bybattery is chargedtemperature-controlledby the power unit, and is secured against total discharge in case of mains power shut down. The case of the fire detection control panel is built for accommodating thestand-bybattery.

An optional case with the same dimensions as the standard case is available to house a second set of batteries (in case of increased power consumption), as well as for housing additional componentries for expansion.

The event memory saves the last 500 events that have been registered by the control panel. You can display the contents of the memory at any time on theLC-display.A filter enables you to limit displays of the saved events by selecting events according to criteria that are needed frequently. The contents of the memory are, like all other parameters of the control panel, preserved indefinitely in case of a total power failure for unlimited time.

The built-inclock supplies thetime-informationfor the display of events as well as for the events saved in the memory. The switch betweensummerand wintertime is automatic. The user can define the date for the next two time switches in advance.

The timer with weekly program enables the timed switching of day operation of the control panel for alarm delay operation of the transmitting device for fire alarm messages.

The connections for a tool for setting parameters or for an external serial printer are provided bytwo serial interfaces. Since the interface for the printer has open parameters, the printer may be used as a protocol printer, maintenance printer, to print measured values of detectors, or as a setup printer.

With the AUTO-setup feature the fire detection control panel recognizes all connected components of the system and sets their setup to standard setup when it is put into operation.

Under normal circumstances, elaborate measures for compensating power spikes and high frequency fields enable the control panel to operate in an unshielded network.

Remote maintenance is possible with an optional interface converter that connects the fire detection system to the Security System Manager (SAM) of LST.

Automatic fire detectors are in steady contact with the air of the surveilled area. Due to the dirt in the air (e.g., dust), every detector will get dirty as time passes. Dirty detectors are one of the main reasons

for false fire alarms. The fire detection control panel BC216-1,besides automatic adjusting of the sensitivity of the detectors, is capable of displaying adirt message on the control panel before the detectors activate false alarms due to dirt, by usingADM-,ADMPROas well as addressable conventional technology.

The control panel is capable of making a forecast for each detector about the time of the next cleaning by analyzing the measured values provided by the automatic detectors of ADMPROandADM-technology.

2.3.2Fire detection control panel BCnet216 (network control panel)

The network fire detection control panel BCnet216 (consisting of BCnet sectional control panels BC216-2andBC216-3)is designed to be used in a modern fire detection system of medium to very large size as a receiving and controlling unit. Due to its compact modular construction of the single BCnet sectional control panels and its flexibility in the setting of parameters, it can be very easily adapted to different demands and thus generally can be used in a large variety of circumstances. The control panel sets new standards for the security in the fire alarm technology while reducing the costs due to the simplicity of cabling.

The listed features from page 17 in Chapter 2.3.1: "Fire detection control panel BC216-1(stand-alone)"of thestand-alonecontrol panel are valid also forevery BCnet sectional control panel of the network control panel BCnet216.

The operation of the whole network control panel BCnet216 is made via the display and operating units of one or more BCnet sectional control panels or via remote display and operating units in the same way as the operation of a compact control panel. The user will not recognize that in reality the control panel consists of several components which are spread over a wide range of space.

Display and operating units of BCnet sectional control panels or remote display and operating units can also be configured as sectional display and operating units for displaying and operating area parts of the whole system, depending on the requirements.

The network is constructed circularly and redundant. In case of a line fault of the network through wire breakage or short circuit all BCnet sectional control panels and other GSSnet members keep working uneffectedly. Even in case of multiple faults of the network cabling all GSSnet members keep working, but in this case displaying and operating is probably only possible directly on the BCnet sectional control panels and limited to the corresponding surveillance area. Optionally the activation of a transmitting device can be constructed so that even with a double fault in the network cabling no impairing of the function occurs. Connection of the BCnet sectional control panels to the network is made by one of the serial interfaces built into the sectional control panels.

Up to 127 GSSnet members (i.e. BCnet partial control panels, remote display and operating units, gateways, etc.) can be connected to the network. The line length between two neighbouring GSSnet members may be up to 1200m, for larger distancesrepeaters can be interposed.

Up to 9699 detector zones, 9699 actuations, 99 transmitting devices and 99 alarming devices can be managed in a network fire detection control panel BCnet216.

2.4Peripheral devices for the fire detection control panel Series BC216

In a fire detection system a series of peripheral devices such as fire detectors, sirens, transmitting devices, displaying devices, etc. are used which are activated and/or monitored by the fire detection control panel.

2.4.1Detectors

Fire detectors of a fire detection system are combined locally to fire protective efficient detector zones and connected to the fire detection control panel BC216-1or to the BCnet sectional control panels of a fire detection control panel BCnet216. The location of fire is identified by the zone number(s) dis-

played on the control panel. In addition to the zone number, the fire detection control panels Series BC216 are capable of displaying a zone-specifictext for every detector zone and adetector-specifictext for every single fire detector. Thereby relevant information is provided for the safety personnel fast and without delay.

Besides with automatic and non-automaticfire detectors, the fire detection control panels Series BC216 are also equipped for the connection of fault detectors and the processing of their information (e.g., surveillance of weight of the extinguishing agent in an extinguishing system) and of technical detectors (e.g., the indication of the position of fire dampers). These detectors too are combined to faultdetector zones and to detector zones for technical messages. The processing of the information of these detector zones is similar to the processing of fire alarm information. The only difference is the kind of alarm activated in case of an event.

The fire, fault and technical detectors connected to the fire detection control panel BC216-1or to every BCnet sectional control panel of a control panel BCnet216 can be combined into up to 144 detector zones. Each detector zone can be disabled and enabled independently and is displayed on the LCdisplay of the control panel with its zone number and information text. On the control panel, individual detectors can be enabled and disabled also, depending on thebuilt-infunction modules.

The operating and displaying of detector zones are described starting page 39 in Chapter 4.7.7: "Displaying and operating detector zones - menu point [Zone:]".

2.4.2Acoustic and optic alarming devices

Persons who are in danger can be warned by the fire detection control panel BC216-1or by every BCnet sectional control panel of a fire detection control panel BCnet216 by acoustic alarming devices (e.g., sirens) or optical ones (e.g., flashlights) that are combined into up to ten independent zones. The activation of the alarming devices is dependent on logic combinations of the alarm activation of detector zones or of single detectors. Thereby, evacuation alarms, for example, can be adapted to the level of danger present in the local situation.

Each alarming zone can be enabled, disabled and silenced individually in case of an alarm. The displaying and operating of alarming devices are described starting page 43 in Chapter 4.7.10: "Displaying and operating alarming devices - menu point [Alarming device:]".

The overall number of all zones of alarming devices is limited to 99 in a fire detection control panel BCnet216.

2.4.3Transmitting devices

Up to ten independently operating transmitting devices can be activated by the fire detection control panel BC216-1or by every BCnet sectional control panel of a fire detection control panel BCnet216 to alarm the designated alarm respondent (e.g., the fire brigade). The activation of each transmitting device is dependent on logical combinations of the alarm activation of detector zones or of individual detectors. Thereby an alarm activated by a manual call point can be distinguished from one activated by an automatic fire detector, for example, at the transmission of the alarm information to the fire brigade. Transmitting devices can also be set for the transmission of fault messages (e.g., to a central fault report post) or for the transmission of technical messages.

Each transmitting device can be enabled and disabled individually. The displaying and operating are described starting page 42 in Chapter 4.7.9: "Displaying and operating transmitting devices - menu point [Transmit. device:]".

The overall number of all transmitting devices is limited to 99 in a fire detection control panel BCnet216.
