The automatic extinguisher control panel is designed in accordance with European standards EN54-2 and EN54-4 Fire Detection and Fire Alarm systems - Control and Indicating Equipment and EN12094-1 Fixed firefighting systems - Components for gas extinguishing systems - Part 1: Requirements and test methods for electrical automatic control and delay devices. The control equipment is a combined fire alarm control panel and extinguishing system and has four detection zones, any or all of which are capable of contributing to the extinguishant release decision. Control panels have an integral, mains powered battery charger and power supply designed in accordance with the requirements of EN54-4.
In addition to the requirements of EN54-2 the control panel has the following facilities: Test condition to allow the automatic resetting of zones in alarm for testing purposes. EN54-2 Section 10 option with requirements
Delay of the actioning of fire alarm devices (sounders) so that an alarm may be verified before a premises is evacuated. EN54-2 Section 7.11 option with requirements. Fire alarm devices to enable an audible warning to be sounded throughout premises upon the detection of a fire condition or the operation of a manual call point. EN54-2 Section 7.8 option with requirements
In addition to the requirements of EN54-2, all control panels have voltage free relay contacts for fire and local fire which operate upon a fire condition. These are to be used for local control and signaling.
In addition to the requirements of EN12094-1 the control panel has the following facilities: Delay of extinguishing signalof up to 75 seconds. EN12094-1 Section 4.17 option with requirements.
Signal representing the flow of extinguishing agent to indicate the released condition. EN12094-1 Section 4.18 option with requirements.
Monitoring of the status of components by way of a low pressure switch input. EN12094-1 Section 4.19 option with requirements. Emergency hold device to enable the extinguishant delay time to be extended. EN12094-1 Section 4.20 option with requirements.
Control of flooding time to deactivate the releasing output after a set period of time. EN12094-1 Section 4.21 option with requirements.
Manual only mode to disable the release of extinguishant via automatic detection devices. EN12094-1 Section 4.23 option with requirements.
Triggering of equipment outside the system by way of first and second stage contacts, extract fan output etc. EN12094-1 Section 4.26 option with requirements
Activation of alarm devices with different signals to indicate pre-discharge and released warnings using different sounds. EN12094-1 Section 4.30 option with requirements.
2. Safety Suppliers of articles for use at work are required under section 6 of the Health and Safety at Work act 1974 to ensure as reasonably as is practical that the article will be safe and without risk to health when properly used. An article is not regarded as properly used if it is used 'without regard to any relevant information or advice' relating to its use made available by the supplier. This product should be installed, commissioned and maintained by trained service personnel in accordance with the following:
(i)IEE regulations for electrical equipment in buildings (ii)Codes of practice (iii)Statutory requirements (iv) Any instructions specifically advised by the manufacturer
According to the provisions of the Act you are therefore requested to take such steps as are necessary to ensure that you make any appropriate information about this product available to anyone concerned with its use. This equipment is designed to operate from 230V/50Hz mains supplies and is of class 1 construction. As such it must be connected to a protective earthing conductor in the fixed wiring of the installation and a readily accessible double pole disconnect device meeting the requirements of EN60950/IEC950 which disconnects live and neutral simultaneously shall be incorporated in the fixed wiring. Switch disconnect devices such as MK Sentry 63A or similar are suitable for this. Failure to ensure that all conductive accessible parts of this equipment are adequately bonded to the protective earth will render the equipment unsafe. This control panel is environmental class A and is designed for indoor use only at temperatures between -50ºC(+/- 3) and +400ºC (+/- 2) and with a maximum relative humidity of 95%. The IP rating for the enclosure is IP30. Operation outside of these limits may render the equipment unsafe.
