Expected operating life of each battery pack operating under normal conditions is one year assuming no Fire or Trouble conditions have occurred. Battery packs must be replaced if either a Fire or Trouble condition occur. After a one-year time period, the primary pack must be replaced. The secondary battery may then be transferred to the primary position and a replacement pack added to the secondary position.
Default detection settings are programmed such that any detection input will actuate all actuation outputs. . Additional detection/actuation mapping options are available via PC based configuration menu
To conserve battery life, detection circuits are periodically monitored approximately every three seconds. The manual release switch input is monitored more frequently than the automatic detection circuits and will respond more rapidly.
An auxiliary normally open pair of contacts are available for use. This input is normally closed and opens in alarm.
. If an open condition occurs, a Trouble condition is annunciated via the yellow Service System LED. The auxiliary function is programmed to be OFF by default. Offline PC programming may be used to change the auxiliary contact setting to ON.
Two actuation circuits are each capable of actuating up to six Stat-X© aerosol generators or similar devices on two separate zones. Power to fire the actuators is delivered from a bank of super capacitors.
The panel will enter a startup mode which may consist of several minutes depending on the state of internal capacitor charge and battery age and condition.
