Important information

Limitation of liability

To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event will UTCFS be liable for any lost profits or business opportunities, loss of use, business interruption, loss of data, or any other indirect, special, incidental, or consequential damages under any theory of liability, whether based in contract, tort, negligence, product liability, or otherwise. Because some jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages the preceding limitation may not apply to you. In any event the total liability of UTCFS shall not exceed the purchase price of the product. The foregoing limitation will apply to the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, regardless of whether UTCFS has been advised of the possibility of such damages and regardless of whether any remedy fails of its essential purpose.

Installation in accordance with this manual, applicable codes, and the instructions of the authority having jurisdiction is mandatory.

While every precaution has been taken during the preparation of this manual to ensure the accuracy of its contents, UTCFS assumes no responsibility for errors or omissions.

FCC warning

This equipment can generate and radiate radio frequency energy. If this equipment is not installed in accordance with this manual, it may cause interference to radio communications. This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for Class A computing devices pursuant to Subpart B of Part 15 of the FCC Rules. These rules are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference when this equipment is operated in a commercial environment. Operation of this equipment is likely to cause interference, in which case the user at his own expense, will be required to take whatever measures may be required to correct the interference.

F-DACT(F) FCC information

Cautions

To ensure proper operation, this dialer must be installed according to the enclosed installation instructions. To verify that the dialer is operating properly and can successfully report an alarm, it must be tested immediately after

FSC Series Technical Reference Manual

iii

installation, and periodically thereafter, according to the enclosed test instructions.

In order for the dialer to be able to seize the phone line to report an alarm or other event when other customer equipment (telephone, answering system, computer modem, etc.) connected to the same line is in use, the dialer must be connected to a properly installed RJ-31X jack. The RJ-31X jack must be connected in series with, and ahead of, all other equipment attached to the same phone line. Series installation of an RJ-31X jack is depicted in the wiring diagram. If you have any questions concerning these instructions, you should consult your telephone company or a qualified installer.

Testing

When programming emergency numbers or making test calls to emergency numbers, remain on the line and briefly explain to the dispatcher the reason for the call. Perform programming and testing activities in the off-peak hours, such as early morning or late evenings.

Compliance requirements

For equipment approved before July 23, 2001: This dialer complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules. A label attached to the dialer contains, among other information, the FCC registration number and ringer equivalence number (REN) for this equipment. If requested, this information must be provided to the telephone company.

For equipment approved after July 23, 2001: This dialer complies with Part 68 of the FCC rules and the requirements adopted by the Administrative Council for Terminal Attachments (ACTA). A label attached to the dialer contains, among other information, a product identifier in the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. If requested, this information must be provided to the telephone company.

The plug and jack used to connect the dialer to the premises wiring and telephone network must comply with the applicable FCC Part 68 rules and requirements adopted by ACTA. The dialer must be connected to a compliant RJ-31X or RJ-38X jack using a compliant cord. If a modular telephone cord is supplied with the dialer, it is designed to meet these requirements. See installation instructions for details.

A ringer equivalence number (REN) is used to determine how many devices you can connect to a telephone line. If the total REN value for all devices connected on a telephone line exceeds that allowed by the telephone company, the devices may not ring on an incoming call. In most (but not all) areas the total REN value should not exceed 5.0. To be certain of the total REN value allowed on a telephone line, contact the local telephone company.

iv

FSC Series Technical Reference Manual

For products approved after July 23, 2001, the REN is part of the product identifier in the format US:AAAEQ##TXXXX. The digits ## represent the REN without a decimal point. Example: 03 is an REN of 0.3. For earlier products the REN is listed separately.

If the dialer is harming the telephone network, the telephone company will notify you in advance that temporary discontinuance of service may be required. If advance notice isn’t practical, the telephone company will notify you as soon as possible. You will also be advised of your right to file a complaint with the FCC, if you believe it is necessary.

The telephone company may make changes to its facilities, equipment, operations, or procedures that could affect the operation of the dialer. If this happens, the telephone company will provide advance notice in order for you to make necessary modifications to maintain uninterrupted service.

If you are experiencing problems with the dialer, contact Technical Support at 1-800-655-4497 for repair or warranty information. If the dialer is harming the telephone network, the telephone company may request that you disconnect the dialer until the problem is resolved.

The dialer contains no user serviceable parts. In case of defects, return the dialer for repair.

You may not connect the dialer to a public coin phone or a party line service provided by the telephone company.

Operation overview

The panel operates in normal mode in the absence of any alarm, supervisory, trouble, or monitor events. In normal mode, the control panel monitors the system.

The panel operates in off-normal mode any time an event is introduced into the system. When this happens, the panel:

Changes contact positions on appropriate common relays

Activates alarm outputs (for alarm events only)

Turns on the appropriate LEDs and the panel buzzer

Executes the appropriate programmed output response for the input that activated the event

Communicates event information to appropriate optional components

If a dialer is installed, the panel:

Sends a record of the event to the F-DACT(F) LCD and to the history log

Transmits event activation and restoration codes to a monitoring station as programmed

Notes

You can install remote modules separately or combined in the same electrical box. For example, a system with a ten-zone control panel typically has one FSRSI and two FSRZI-SAs installed in a 3-gang electrical box.

The FSRSI includes a buzzer that sounds a temporal (3-3-3) pattern when there is an active alarm zone, a slow pulse pattern when there is an active supervisory zone, and an intermittent pattern when there is a system trouble.

Silencing notification appliances

WARNING: Notification appliances should not be silenced until the building is fully evacuated and the cause of the alarm has been determined.

Pressing the Signal Silence & Drill button turns off all audible notification appliances. Visible notification appliances or NAC circuits may or may not turn off, depending on panel programming.

When you silence the signals, the Signal Silenced LED turns on, indicating that the notification appliances are off. The panel does not indicate a trouble condition. If Genesis, horn/strobe, or horn-only devices are used on NACs programmed for Genesis operation, Signal Silence & Drill silences only the horns.

To silence notification appliances:

1. Press the Signal Silence & Drill button.

When the auto signal silence timer is programmed

When an event activates the notification appliances, the auto signal silence timer is activated. The notification appliances are activated for the time period defined during programming. When the timer expires, any NACs that are programmed as silenceable are deactivated, and the Signal Silenced LED turns on.

If another event takes place that activates the previously silenced notification appliances, the Signal Silenced LED turns off. At any time, you can deactivate silenceable NACs by pressing Signal Silence & Drill.

Note: NACs activated by IDCs programmed as waterflow cannot be silenced until the activated devices are restored to normal. After the devices restore, the Signal Silence & Drill button or the auto signal silence timer can silence the NACs.

Re-sounding an alarm condition

Pressing the Signal Silence & Drill button again turns the audible devices back on if they were silenced.

Note: NACs re-sound automatically if a new alarm (from another IDC) is received.

To re-sound notification appliances:

1. Press the Signal Silence & Drill button.

FSC Series Technical Reference Manual

Chapter 2: Installation

Installing the F-DACT(F)

The F-DACT(F), also called the dialer, is a digital alarm communicator transmitter (DACT). The dialer transmits event activation and restoration codes to a compatible digital alarm communicator receiver (DACR) over standard loop-start telephone lines. The dialer is capable of split reporting to two different accounts and telephone numbers.

In addition to the dialer functions, the F-DACT(F) provides:

An alphanumeric LCD to display system messages and programming prompts

An event history log of panel and DACT events, viewable through compatible software

Note: The F-DACT(F) modem is only rated for 2400 baud communication. Some PC modems may not be compatible with this baud rate.

A modem for uploading and downloading panel configuration, history, and current status to a PC running compatible software

The F-DACT(F) can be programmed to operate as a singleor dual-line DACT/Modem/LCD display, a Modem/LCD display, or an LCD display only.

NFPA 72 compliance requirements

For the dialer to be NFPA 72 CS compliant, the following conditions are required:

The factory installed warning label must be removed from the F-DACT(F)’s LINE 2 phone jack.

A second phone line, independent of that used for line one must be connected to the F-DACT(F)’s LINE 2 phone jack.

The F-DACT(F) must be programmed to transmit a test signal at least once every 24 hours.

In addition, NFPA 72 requires that you perform a reacceptance test after you make any changes to the panel programming (also called the site-specific software). See NFPA 72 National Fire Alarm Code for testing requirements.

For additional download security, the F-DACT(F) can be programmed to perform a callback function.

FSC Series Technical Reference Manual

31

Chapter 3: Panel programming

FACP: Panel operates as a fire alarm control panel. By default, all initiating device circuits are latching alarm circuits. A manual reset is required to return the panel to normal.

FACOM: Panel operates as a dialer for fire alarm control panels that do not have a dialer. By default, all initiating device circuits are nonlatching alarm circuits. The control panel resets automatically after the central station receiver acknowledges that it received all events from the control panel.

Sprinkler Supv: Panel operates as an unattended sprinkler supervisory panel. For alarm and waterflow events, the panel operates as a fire alarm control panel. For all other events, the control panel resets automatically after the central station receiver acknowledges that it has received all events from the control panel.

Note: The panel operating mode option is only available when an F-DACT(F) is installed. By default, the panel operates as a fire alarm control panel.

Rst/Sil Inhibit: Determines how long you must wait after an alarm event before you can silence notification appliances or reset the control panel. You can select None (to silence notification appliances or reset the control panel immediately) or 1 minute.

AC Fail Delay: Determines how long the panel must be without AC power or a remote AC fail zone type must be active before the dialer transmits an AC fail event. You can select between 0 and 15 hours.

Note: To meet UL 864 9th edition requirements, set AC Fail Delay for 1, 2, or 3 hours.

WF Retard/Delay: Determines how long a waterflow switch must be closed before a waterflow-retard or a waterflow-retard/supervisory zone type is activated. You can select between 0 and 150 seconds.

Note: To meet NFPA 72 2002 edition requirements, set WF Retard/Delay between 0 and 90 seconds.
