We look forward to further business dealings with your organization. We have just purchased a SOLO kit from yourselves and I have say we have been very impressed with the service and support provided — thank you. Just a quick note to say thanks for the advice on the replacement of the Mother board. We attended a week ago and all went smoothly, no problems since touch wood! The service and support from Emma and the other staff has been superb and as a new customer purchasing wise I will now be placing all orders with Acorn. Thankyou so much for your assistance, I don't know how you managed to source this equipment, but I'm very glad you did.

Manual zz. These instructions must be read in conjunction with the recommendations in BSPart 1 code of practice for Fire detection and alarm system for buildings.
Associated Documents Operating instructions Log book Conventions " This is a note to highlight important text that is normally hidden in the main text. Installation requirements Cable type and routing Appropriate attention must be given to ensure correct cable type is installed in accordance with as fitted drawings, site specific information and recommendations of BS Part 1 : The cables must be installed using cable manufacturers recommended fixings and accessories.
Fire sensor covers Each fire sensor may be supplied with a plastic dust cover and can be ordered separately. If supplied, the cover must be fitted to prevent dust and dirt from the building work contaminating the fire sensor. It is recommended that the installer follow the general requirements of BSPart 1, which is the code of practice relating to fire detection and Earth continuity alarm systems for buildings. The installer must follow the relevant parts of BS : Requirements for Electrical installations, IEE wiring All earth connection points should be clean to provide a good regulations 16th edition if installation is in the United Kingdom, UK.
To maintain the earth continuity all earth leads and fittings provided should be installed. The loop cable screen must be continued through each system device on the loop Second fix installation circuit, whether the earth is connected to the device or not.
To prevent the possibility of damage or dirt degrading the performance or appearance of the products, the installed products must be suitably protected until all major building work in the area is complete.
Fixture and fittings " Do not rely on any part of building structure for earthing. Some of the system products having metal enclosures have a zinc coating around the cable termination points, the coating provide a good electrical conductivity path for cable earth termination.
The zinc coating on the metal enclosures should not be damaged. Any damage will expose bare metal, which can corrode and make a poor earth connection. It is the installer's responsibility to provide adequate fixtures and fittings for the type of construction surface onto which a product is to be installed, whilst utilising the fixing points on the respective product.
As an aid to this decision, the weight and overall size of each full assembly Mains supply together with implications on cable entries and routing should be taken Mains supply to any fire alarm control and indicating equipment must be into consideration. A 'disconnect device' must be provided to disconnect both poles and must have a minimum gap of 3mm.
The 'disconnect device' should be available as part of the building installation and must be easily accessible after installation is complete. All these procedures assume that the cable, gland, steel box BESA box and other related accessories are provided by the installer. The acquired information together with this guide and the relevant standards should be used to assist the work. Each product assembly can be identified from its package label.
The contents of all packages should be checked for any discrepancies. Local Manual Call Point To comply with the requirements of EN54 : Part 2 : a conventional manual call point must be installed near the main control panel.
The call point must be wired to an input line of an interface unit on the loop circuit. During commissioning call point input must be set up to evacuate all sectors without delay. In addition to the basic requirements of the standard the panel conforms to the following optional clauses: Clause Description 7.
Cable separation Where the outgoing and return cables of a loop which covers more than the equivalent of one zone they must not run together, for example, either close to the Control Panel or in a service duct. There should be as much physical separation as possible between the cables and the mechanical protection of the cable should be to a particularly high standard. This is to minimise the risk of accidental damage to both cables. There should be separation from the mains supply cable.
Lightning protection Where a loop cable or network cable is to be mounted to an external wall or between two buildings then consideration should be given to the use of lightning protection devices. Other loop devices 1 There must be a good earth connection to the voltage surge protection device.
This includes the cable usage on main loop, spur circuits and interface lines. It is NOT permissible to run mixed loops or outgoing and return pairs in a multi core cable, due to inadequate separation and possible electrical interference problems. Loop Cable usage " There is a maximum limit of 1Km loop cable usage allowed per loop circuit.
Under certain environmental conditions galvanic action may take place between the aluminium and the drain wire. This will severely degrade EMC performance as the foil to drain wire impedance will increase. Mains Supply cable The mains supply cable must be a standard fire-resisting type and should meet PH30 classification, like the standard and enhanced cables listed above.
A combined maximum of up to devices is allowed per loop circuit, a further limit on a loop circuit is determined by the load factor. The number of devices on one loop circuit can be limited by the total number of addresses available, the electrical load on the circuit, the maximum cable length and other geographical considerations. The following table can be used as a rough guide only to determine the loop load. The Battery Standby Calculator tool should be used during system design stage to determine the loop loading.
The tool can be downloaded from the Gent Expert forum www. The panels can accommodate up to 4 or 6 loop circuits for the connection of Vigilon range of analogue and addressable devices. The panels have integral mains derived power supply.
The VIG panel has integral batteries and the VIG panel have batteries fitted in a separate enclosure for extended standby supply. The batteries supply standby power in the event of mains power failure. A lockable front door prevents unauthorised access to fire alarm controls but allows all of the indicators to be seen. The panels have integral zonal indicators to provide zone fire or fault indications. Two push button controls are located on the front door below the display that enable Fire messages to be scrolled in the event of multiple fires.
The panels are designed for surface or semi-flush mounting with rear and top cable entry points. Product family standard: Immunity requirements for components of fire, intruder and social alarm systems. The maximum cable length allowed for RS is 15m. Devices like sensors, MCPs and interface units etc. Device label Each device can be given a 32 character label for identification.
Each MCP is restricted to 28 character label. Access level 2b Access as level 2a plus access to User having an outer complete level 2 menu commands. Printer The integral printer if fitted operates when the outer door is open.
Voltage-free contacts rated 1A 24Vdc Aux relay 1 2 sets of change over contacts configured to operate immediately with Fire event. The relay is normally de-energised. Auxiliary relays Aux relay 2 2 sets of change over contacts configured to operate immediately with Fault event. The relay is normally energised. The relays can be re-configured to operate with Fire, Fault or Disablement event, with a maximum delay of up to 10 minutes and can operate in a normally energised or de-energised state.
Internal sounder To announce Fire and Fault events, plus give a key press confirmation beep. Next and Previous buttons operable during Fire condition only. An optional remote printer can be connected to the panel. The Battery Loop Loading calculator can be used to determine the load on the loop to achieve the standby power in the event of mains failure.
The battery box is only used with the VIG panel and can be installed in a remote location up to 10m cable distance away from the control panel when using 1. When using 2. Battery box dimensions in mm height x width x depth Terminals Accept cable size of up to 2.

Stick the adhesive backed foam pad supplied to cover gaps around the centre key-hole fixing point in the back box. This is done to seal any gaps to prevent ingress. Terminate each cable at the entry point leaving mm tail wire length and mark each core to identify its final connecting point.
The cards and batteries are installed during the commissioning of the system by the servicing organisation. The only time it should not be flush mounted is when the battery box is close fitted beneath the control panel.
