Addresable Fire Alarm Systems

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The task of an automatic fire detection system is to detect fire, to alarm and activate the preprogrammed control functions. State-of-the-art fire detection systems are capable of detecting fire extremely early and thus of minimizing the damage that may be caused by fire.

A fire detection system consists of the control unit, the peripheral devices such as firedetectors and contacts, as well as alarm and control devices activated by thecontrol unit.

 

 

The addressable control panels are a scalable solution for medium to large-sized solutions. An addressable connection is a detector line system that can individually address each detector. This makes it possible to indicate each detector that triggers an alarm and to assign a text indicated in

 

case of an event to this detector or detector zone.

 

In addressable technology, the topology types stub, loop or T-tab are principally possible. In some bus systems, T-tabs can be implemented without additional modules, what considerably reduces the costs for installing the supply network.

 

With an addressable connection, the following aspects must be taken into account:

 

• If the line is wired as a stub, a maximum of 32 detectors are permitted per stub

 

line, in compliance with the EN 54 standard.

 

• If the line is wired as a loop, a maximum of 126 detectors are permitted per loop

 

line, in compliance with the EN 54 standard.

 

• It must be ensured that, in case of a short-circuit, the relevant line segment is

 

isolated and that in case of an open line, access is possible from the opposite

 

side of the loop. The smaller the number of elements that fail in case of a short-

 

circuit, the better, which is why each bus element should contain separator ele-

 

ments.

 

Some features of state-of-the-art addressable bus systems are:

 

• Direct connection of input and output modules and of indicating and operating

 

elements on the detector line.

 

• Direct connection of acoustic alarm devices without extra power supply.

 

• Automatic self-monitoring: The system periodically checks whether all devices

 

are available and operate correctly.
