and providing signal (audible and visual alarms). The system shall be able to perform tests
either on the complete system or on an individual zone, and shall be able to maintain the full
function of the zone not being tested.

5.

As signal appears from detectors of one zone or many zones, FAP will decipher and transmit
signals via fire alarm and signal light indicating fire zone (the panel may decipher and transmit
signals immediately or keep signals for checking depending on types of fire detectors.

6.

Beside fire alarm function, FAP shall give indication of troubles via signals differing from fire
signals. Specifically, in case of false information from fire detectors, short circuit, or trouble of
the panel, sound and indicator light will be transmitted on the panel as well as fire alarm and

1 Led light generating infrared rays and 1 photoelectric Diod Xilic receiving infrared rays
are available in smoke collecting chamber of smoke detector. Normally, photoelectric
Diod receives no infrared rays generated from Led light. As smoke spreads smoke
collecting chamber, smoke particles will reflect infrared rays in different directions, one
of radioactive rays will go to photoelectric Dioc. The more dense smoke is the more
radioactive rays are, it means photoelectric Diod receives more infrared rays. As smoke
density reaches 10% upward, fire-warning light received by Diod will be suffient for
current connection, signal transmittal to fire alarm panel.

to warm in case of high temperature. They can be used to detect the rapid build-up of
excessive temperatures. Rate-of-rise heat detectors shall respond as soon as the rate
of change in the ambient temperature surrounding the detector exceeds the trigger level
(10C/minute). Fixed temperature sensor shall be ac tivated as soon as the ambient
temperature exceeds a preset temperature limit (60C).

b.
c.
d.

Data acquisition and control: The server acquires data by polling devices for individual point
data, and exceptions. This acquired data is processed and stored in the database as point
parameter values. Status point parameters are used for all point status. Status points have
various parameters that can be used for storing status values in the range 0-7. These
parameters are PV and OP. Typically PV should be used for point values digital points. OP
should be used for values to be sent to I9000 points, namely output points, area control etc.
Each point parameter, except PV, has a source address to nominate the source of the value in
the device, and a destination address to nominate the address in the device that should be
controlled. The server acquires point values from the I9000 by Exception reporting. Every 2
seconds the server sends a short form poll request to each I9000. The I9000 replies with any
points that have changed state.

Direct Digital Controller (DDC):


1.

The DDC is an Ethernet-based, freely programmable building automation controller. It


incorporates the two major open standards in building automation: BACnet/IP and
LONWORKS

2.

The DDC can host a huge variety of building management applications, be it traditional heating,
ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) applications, energy management functions, including
optimum start/stop, night purge, and maximum load demand, supervisory functions for lighting,
sunblind, heat and energy metering and many other applications.

3.

By virtue of its "peer-to-peer" concept, DDC is not dependent upon the availability of super
ordinate centrals or application network controllers.

4.

Main require features of the DDC:


a.

Universal operation: Operate the DDC from any place, from any integrated PC! An
integrated web-server allows local and remote operation by standard browsers.

b.

Expandable trend buffer: The onboard trend buffer can store minimum 64,000 trend
entries, and can be expanded using standard Compact Flash Cards (type 1 or 2).

c.

Fast application control: Four selectable control loop priorities (multitasking), selectable
control loop cycle times, and event-driven switching tables allow for tailored and highly
effective applications control.

d.

Reliable control performance: Embedded LINUX ensures reliable, independent, and


secure operation, especially for systems with Internet access.

e.

Network security: Based on its design as an IP device, it can easily be integrated into any
existing network security mechanism.

f.
5.

Flexible mounting options: DIN-rail, wall, or panel front door mounting.

Operator interface
a.

The DDC is operated via a standard browser. By default, an integrated web-server provides
all operation pages for a full browser-based operation. Through the consequent use of
software standards, any PC platform can be used as an operator interface (client). In
addition to laptops, desktop PCs, or industrial PCs, panel PCs or touch screen PCs can
also be used for direct flush mounting into cabinet doors (IP65). Other than the operating
system and Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox, no software needs to be installed on the
client PCs.
