Fixed error message that would come up when trying to update the Notifier Battery Calculations.

Release 2.4 Changes (Internet Release) July 1, 2012 Corrected battery cabinet message for the ACPS-610. Message would incorrectly state that batteries over 12AH would fit in the cabinet provided by the ACPS-610. Corrected a problem with the Voice Worksheet. There were some incorrect formulas in the DS-DB sheet that would not report the current draw for Speakers and Speaker/Strobes after selecting a Watt Tap. Fixed the Clear Selections and Show Selected Devices buttons on the AC Branch page of the NFS2-640 sheet. Put the UDACT communicator back into appropriate sheets. The UDACT communicator was inadvertently taken out in the version 2.3 release. Added the UDACT-2 communicator to compatible battery calculation sheets. Corrected the current draw for the PC2R15 in the Device Database. Corrected section numbering on Current Draw sheet for the NFS-320. Added the ability to take into account reverse polarity alarm and trouble current (for the main circuit board and 4XTM) for the following control panels: SFP-2402, SFP-2404, RP-2001, RP2002, SFP-5UD, SFP-10UD, NFW-50, and NFW2-100.

Added IDC circuit alarm draw for all intelligent modules (FZM-1, XP6-MA, NZM-100, and NZM-100-6) to all applicable battery calculations. All conventional initiating devices will now have a 0 amp current draw in alarm, this draw will be handled by the IDC circuit alarm draw. Each IDC circuit will be given a maximum draw in alarm that will be used per circuit for all conventional applications. Redesigned the NFS2-3030 battery calculation to match the manual. Users are now able to add devices on either the Main 24V output or the Auxiliary 24V output. Expanded section for intelligent devices that require auxiliary power inside applicable intelligent control panels and worksheets. All intelligent devices and modules that require auxiliary power are now in this section. Removed XP module section from NFS-640, NFS2-640, NFS-3030, and NFS2-3030 control panels. XP modules should be placed inside battery calculations using the Initiating device drop downs.

Release 2.3 Changes (Internet Release) January 20, 2012 Corrected current draws for the following parts in the Notifier Device Database: o SW-ALERT, SWH-ALERT, SW-CLR-ALERT, SCW-CLR-ALERT, and some intelligent addressable devices. Corrected some of the cells in the following sheets that would not allow you to change the quantity back to 0 without clicking on the Clear Selections button. o DAA2-5025/70, DAA2-5075, DAX-3525/70, DAX-5025/70 Updated the NSP-25 battery calculation to include new compatible devices including the ability to add up to two N-ANN-80 Remote Annunciators. Added new DAA2 series and DAX series AC Branch worksheets to the following Battery Calculation Sheets: o ACPS-610, DAA2-5025_70, DAA2-7525, DAA-5025_70, DAA-7525, DAX-3525_70, DAX-5025_70, Distributed System, NFS-320, NFS2-640, NFS2-3030, NFS-640, and NFS-3030. Added the FCO-851 Advanced Multi-Criteria Fire/CO Detector and FDRM-1 Dual Relay/Monitor Module to the database. Updated the Live Update program. Created new Power Supply worksheet. This worksheet will now be used for those power supplies that are being backed up by the Control Panel or Power Supplies batteries. All devices on these power supplies will be entered in on the worksheet, not on the worksheet that is charging the batteries. This worksheet will work the same way as the Voice Worksheet that was added in Version 2.2. Worksheet has been added to the following sheets: o ACPS-610, Distributed System, NFS-320, NFS2-640, NFS2-3030, NFS-640, NFS3030, ACPS-2406, AFP-100, AFP-200, AFP-400, AM-2020, NFW-50, NFW2-100, RP-2001/2002, SFP-5UD, SFP-10UD, System 500, and System 5000.

Improved listings inside the battery calculation sheets for the LDM series modules, ACM-8R relay module, and the SCS smoke control annunciator. Users will now be able to configure current draws for these devices without going to external sources like manuals. Updated the Annunciator section on applicable sheets, updated some older devices and included some newer devices like the LCD2-80. Added the ability to set the charger setting for the AMPS-24. Depending on what the charger setting is for the AMPS-24 will determine the total maximum power of all devices that can be placed on the power supply. The AMPS-24 is now able to charge from 7AH 200AH batteries. Added Auxiliary Device slots and the NC-100R to the NSP-25 battery calculation. Derating factor for Canada for 100AH and greater batteries has increased to 2.5. Added the DS-DB Digital Series Distribution Board and Amplifiers to the appropriate sheets.

Added Intelligent Devices that draw auxiliary power section to the NFS2-3030, NFS2-640, and NFS-320 sheets. Added Secondary Alarm Draw for the CPS-24 and the AMPS-24 for applicable control panels. Subtracted 200mA off the Secondary Alarm draw for the NCA2 with Backlight off with Loss of AC option. This was done because the Primary Alarm draw for the NCA2 is 400mA, the Primary Alarm draw is being used as the Secondary Alarm draw so the 400mA draw in Primary Alarm is incorrect for the NCA2 with Backlight Off with Loss of AC option.

Release 2.2.2 Changes (Live Update Release) Corrected the battery charging capacity for the DAA2-5025/DAA2-5070 sheet. Charging capacity was raised to 200AH.

Changed the way that Secondary Alarm time for all sheets is entered in. There will no longer be a dropdown with fixed times to select, you will now have to double click on the cell to enter in the Secondary Alarm time in minutes. The sheet will automatically convert the selected time into hours. Changed the design of the battery distribution chart. Added some additional AC Branch devices to selected sheets. This was done to include the Honeywell Power power supplies and the new DAA2 and DAX Audio Amplifiers. Changed the way total Secondary Alarm load is calculated. The value will no longer go over the maximum current for that selected control panel or power supply. Cleaned up some invalid named ranges on all sheets. Added conditional formatting for Primary Non-Alarm total cells. Each sheet will now highlight and show in red any primary non-alarm draw that exceeds the maximum that is allowed by that control panel or power supply. Updated the clear sheet procedure to be quicker. Relabeled some of the headers on the Current Draw sheet for all control panels and power supplies to be more descriptive. Added a custom battery feature to the Battery Size sheet for all control panels and power supplies. Users will be able to enter in their own battery into the yellow cell located in the battery list. Added a new Voice Worksheet to calculate current draws for those Voice Control panels that are being backed up by another power supply or control panels batteries. Users will be able to launch a new Voice Worksheet or open an existing Voice Worksheet from the Control Panel or Power Supply that have the batteries that will back up those voice systems. Updated the database with some new Intelligent Initiating Devices and some Notification Appliances.

Updated the RP-2001/2002 sheet to use the method of using the fixed value of 40mA per IDC circuit in alarm rather than using the actual current draw of devices placed on those IDC circuits. Updated the XPIQ sheet to better match the manual by computing only secondary current draw rather than including the primary alarm draws. Removed the NFW-100 sheet from the battery calculations.
