System Characteristics

3.14 SelfVerify Function


AutroSafe SelfVerify solves all issues of manual maintenance, leaving time-consuming and costly physical testing no longer necessary. With AutroSafe SelfVerify, the system checks all detectors, interfaces, connections and cables from detector chamber to alarm output every single day. Not only does the system test whether a detector is capable of provoking an alarm, it even verifies the sensitivity of every detector with a calibrated signal. The SelfVerify system ensures that each detector always responds to the correct alarm level. In the event of irregularities, the display on the operating panel will accurately pinpoint the source of any problem.

3.15 Operation Classes for different Detection Methods


The MultiSensor detector can be set to three different Operation Classes, allowing you to choose the MultiSensors detection method and calculation. The Operation Classes are as follows;

MultiSensor (optical detection with heat enhancement) Heat only (thermal detection only) - class A1 MultiSensor with Heat (a combination of optical detection with heat enhancement and Heat class A1)

By means of a command from AutroCom (AutroMaster) it is possible to disable the smoke detection for a given time and make the MultiSensor work as a pure heat detector. The MultiSensor will return automatically to its configured Operation class when the time has elapsed.

System Characteristics

3.16 Performance Classes for Environmental Adaptivity


AutroSafe uses detectors that can be programmed to one of three different Performance Classes, with sensitivity settings covering the following environments:

clean environments, for example laboratories, data rooms etc. normal environments, for example offices and hospitals etc. industrial environments, for example, factories and warehouses etc.

By choosing a sensitivity setting that suits the environment, it is possible to achieve an accurate and reliable system, providing the optimal detection, whilst virtually eliminating false alarms. All three different sensitivity settings comply with the C.E.N. regulations EN-54.

System Characteristics

3.17 Interactive Detectors with Dynamic Filtering (DYFI+)


AutroSafe features detectors with the digital filter technology DYFI+. False alarms are virtually eliminated, and the system provides the earliest possible warning of a potential fire - before it becomes a problem. The DYFI+ digital filtering is present in each detector. Each detector has three different filter functions:

The smouldering fire filter provides accurate and quick detection in the event of a smouldering fire, i.e. in a situation where a potential fire with no flames develops during a longer period.

The transient filter virtually eliminates false alarms caused by phenomena that are not related to a real fire. Such phenomena can be short pulses caused by, for example, vapour, cigarette smoke etc.

The pollution filter maintains the chosen sensitivity throughout the detectors entire lifetime, even with a polluted detector..

5. Examples of Network Solutions


5.1 Introduction
AutroSafe 4 operates on a high-speed and fully redundant Ethernetbased network solution; AutroNet. A maximum of 64 system units (panels, controllers) can be connected to the network. This chapter deals with general guidelines, Ethernet switches and a selection of different examples of network solutions. In these examples the following parameters vary: the number of system units the number of switches the type of switches the transmission length between the system units/switches the cabling (Cat 5 cable max. 100m, or single-mode/multi-mode optic fibre)

5.2 General Guidelines

The smallest network solution consists of two panels (example 1). The use of Cat 5 cable type/category allows a maximum transmission length of 100 meters between panels/switches. The transmission length between two panels using Cat 5 cable type/category can be extended by using Ethernet switches (example 2). A network solution (AutroNet) with more than two panels requires the use of switches (example 3). To secure AutroNet redundancy (communication between panels), the origin of power to switches serving one network shall be from a different source than the origin of power to the switches serving the other network, such that a power cable break or power loss in one network will not affect the operability of the other. Transmission lengths that exceed 100 meters require the use of single-mode or multi-mode optic fibre (refer also to Cable Specifications, chapter 9).

Attenuation in fibre optics, also known as transmission loss, is the reduction in intensity of the light beam (or signal) with respect to distance travelled through a transmission medium. Attenuation coefficients in fibre optics usually use units of dB/km through the medium due to the relatively high quality of transparency of modern optical transmission media. Multi-mode optic fibre is a type of optic fibre mostly used for communication over shorter distances, such as within a building or on a campus. Typical multi-mode links have data rates of 10 Mbit/s to 10 Gbit/s over link lengths of up to 600 metersmore than sufficient for the majority of premises applications.

System Description, AutroSafe Interactive Fire Detection System, Release 4, 116-P-ASAFE-SYSTEMD/EGB Rev. B, 2010-02-01, Autronica Fire and Security AS Page 20

Examples of Network Solutions

The equipment used for communications over multi-mode optic fibre is much less expensive than that for single-mode optic fibre. Typical transmission speed/distance limits are 100 Mbit/s for distances up to 2 km (100BASE-FX), 1 Gbit/s to 220550 m (1000BASE-SX), and 10 Gbit/s to 300 m (10GBASE-SR). Multi-mode fibre -transmission length 11000 m (glass fibre with F-G 62.5/125 0.7 dB/km F1000) 6400 m (glass fibre with F-G 50/125 0.7 dB/km F1200) 3000 m (glass fibre with F-G 62.5/125 2.6 dB/km F600) 2800 m (glass fibre with F-G 50/125 1.6 dB/km F800) Single-mode fibers are better at retaining the fidelity of each light pulse over long distances than multi-mode fibres. For these reasons, single-mode fibres can have a higher bandwidth than multi-mode fibres. Equipment for single-mode fibre is more expensive than equipment for multi-mode optic fibre, but the single-mode fibre itself is usually cheaper in bulk. Single-mode fibres are used for most communication links longer than 550 metres.

Internal Modules

6. Internal Modules
6.1 Module Capacity inside the Fire Alarm Control Panel and Controller
Each Fire Alarm Control Panel or Controller provides an internal Power Module, BSS-310 and Communication Module, BSL-310. In addition to these 2 mandatory modules, each system unit can accommodate up to a maximum of 12 optional modules. Refer to the next chapter. The limitation of 12 modules is due to the total capacity in one system unit. Maximum 6 of these modules can be Loop Driver Modules, due to traffic capacity and power consumption.

6.2 Overview
The Fire Alarm Control Panel and the Controller can be equipped with the same modules. All outputs are freely programmable from all detectors, manual call points and input signals. All modules have the same dimensions and are easily plugged onto each other on a standard mounting rail inside the unit. Modules in the Fire Alarm Control Panel / Controller

Two green indicators; Right green indicator - the presence of 24V Left green indicator - the presence of 5V

Conventional Loop Interface BNB-330 (BN-330*)

The conventional detectors are connected to a two-wire sub loop. The sub loop is monitored for broken line by an end-of line unit BNY-330. As default a short circuit of the sub loop will give a fault warning, but the unit may be configured to give an alarm instead. The module version BNB-330 is to be mounted on a DIN-rail onto other internal modules inside the Fire Alarm Control Panel / Controller, where 24VDC power is supplied. *The BN-330 unit requires separate 24VDC. Conforms to IP-67. In cases where one, two or three BS-100 loops are to be connected to an AutroSafe Panel, the Power Module BSS-310 has enough power to feed the BSD-330 modules. If more than three modules are used, BSS-310A must be installed instead of BSS310; this allows up to eight BSD-330 modules to be installed in the panel.

BS-100 Loop Interface BSD-330

The BS-100 Loop Interface, BSD-330 is used as an interface between the AutroSafe detector loop protocol and BS-100 loop protocol. The interface makes it possible to connect BS-panel type detectors to the AutroSafe system, including detectors used in systems BS-3, BS-30, BS-60, BS-80, BS-90 and BS-100.

To ensure a correct addressing of the detectors on a branch-off when configuring the system, there can not be more than one branch-off per detector. For safety reasons, the number of detectors on each branch-off must be kept to a minimum (a maximum of 32 detectors on each branchoff), as the detectors on a branch-off will not operate in case of a break og shortcuit on the branch-off.
Accepted Branch-off NOT Accepted!

Detection Loops

8.3 Capacity on the Detection Loop


There can be a maximum of 127 loop units per detection loop. A maximum of 99 of these loop units can be used for points, i.e. detectors/manual call points. The remaining loop units can be used for input and output control signals, for example, fire door control and monitoring. Reducing the number of detectors will allow the use of more I/O units. The limitations of loop units on the detection loop are for safety reasons; to always ensure sufficient capacity for activation of electronic sounders and control functions. The table below shows the current consumption for loop units in normal status and in alarm status. A detector with active LED indication will also draw current on the detection loop. In a configuration where it is required that several LEDs must be activated simultaneously, the number of detectors on the loop must be reduced. Loop Unit Current Consumption in Normal Status
0,3mA 0,3mA

Current Consumption in Alarm Status

Power Distribution, Calculation and Consumption

The Power Cabinet BP-405 supplies a maximum of 5A, of which 3A is available for the fire detection system. 2A is used for the charging and maintenance of the battery. Note that the maximum load for each output (A1, A2, B1, B2, C1, C2) is 2A. Output A supplies 2A and functions as a single output for all Controllers BC-420 and panels (BS-420, BS-430, BU-BV-420). Output C supplies 2A to the internal modules mounted on the rail inside the Controller BC-420 and Fire Alarm Control Panel BS-420. Note that if there is a maximum load from both output A and C, the total load would be 4A, which in this case would exceed the limit of 3A. It is therefore important to calculate the total power consumption for each Power Cabinet BP-405 to ensure that this limit is not exceeded. The example described in the next chapter shows how you can easily find out if the power consumption in a system is within the given limits.

10.2 Power Calculation Example 4 Power Cabinets BP-405

However, the total power consumption is 3,38A, meaning that the limit of 3A is exceeded by 0,38A. The total power consumption must be reduced by 0,38A, or another power cabinet has to be added.

In order to reduce the total power consumption for Power Cabinet 1 to 3A (the limit), one of the fibre converters powered from Power Cabinet 1 can instead be powered from Power Cabinet 2. The total power consumption for Power Cabinet 1 will then be reduced by 400mA to 2980mA (<3A). Both Power Cabinets will now have a total power consumption within the limit of 3A.

In addition, it supplies power to equipment that does not require redundant power. If redundancy is not required, power can be supplied from one output (for example, output B1 or B2). Output C1 or C2 cannot be used to other equipment, as this output is shut off 3 seconds during an initialization of the system.

Power Distribution, Calculation and Consumption

The power distribution from Power Cabinet 4 is not according to legal specifications of the Power Cabinet BP-405. BS-420 is not supplied with redundant power. Power must also be supplied from output A1. The power consumption from output C1 and C2 exceeds the limits. The internal modules (I/O stack) draw too much power. The total power consumption exceeds 3A. Power consumption status: Output A The power consumption is below the limit (2A), but the BS-420 must have redundant power, and thus must be supplied with power from A1. Output B More than 2A is supplied to equipment that does not require redundant power. This means that this output can supply a maximum of 4A (2A + 2A). Output C This connection is not satisfactory as the power consumption is above 2A.

Conclusion: The total power consumption (5480mA) related to the power distribution in Power Cabinet 4 is far too high. More power must be supplied. A separate power supply can be used to supply power to equipment that does not require redundancy. If the power consumption is reduced by 2,5A, power supplied from Power Cabinet 4 will be sufficient, as the power needed is no longer exceeding the total limit of BP-405. Port C is still above 2A and must be reduced either by removing components that are not needed or by using an additional Power Cabinet BP-405.

11.1 Zoning Concept

11.1.1 General
To describe the functional hierarchy of the system we use the term "zone". Assigning system components to zones enables hierarchical control from detection to activation of alarm. This hierarchy consists of the following zones: Detection Zone (DZ) Alarm Zone (AZ) Operation Zone (OZ)

Fire Alarm Control Panels Operator Panels Information Panels Repeater Panels

Points (Detectors / Manual Call Points Input signals)

Operation Zone Detection Zone Alarm Zone

Sounders

11.1.2 Detection Zone


A Detection Zone (DZ) is defined as a zone with one or more points (detectors or manual call-points) that logically belong together, determined by geographical/functional parameters (for example, the sales department on the second floor). A point can only be assigned to one detection zone, and can only refer to one specific location in the system (for example, a specific office on the second floor in a building). The Detection Zone will be the trigger to generate outputs to the Alarm Zone.

System Description, AutroSafe Interactive Fire Detection System, Release 4, 116-P-ASAFE-SYSTEMD/EGB Rev. B, 2010-02-01, Autronica Fire and Security AS Page 46

Appendix

11.1.3 Alarm Zone


An Alarm Zone (AZ) is activated by one or several detection zones. Example: An alarm from one of the devices in DZ3 will activate sounders in AZ1. Within the same alarm zone, alarm sounders give the same audible signal. Geographically associated alarm zones can be defined as neighbour zones, such that these can operate outputs for alarm zones adjacent to the incident.

11.1.4 Operation Zone


An Operation Zone (OZ) defines the scope of an Operator Panel. The operation zone can cover one floor or one building, and is designed to restrict the operators sphere of influence on the system as a whole. At least one Fire Alarm Control Panel / Operator Panel should have the overall control of the system. Operation zones on higher levels may encompass several other operation zones. Input / Output units (for example, Door Control Units, Sprinkler Control Units etc.) can be controlled from an Operation Zone. An Operation Zone given these properties and necessary parameter settings is referred to as a Control Operation Zone. Different day / night operation for different areas (i.e. detection zones) requires the use of several Operation Zones / sub-operation zones with different Day / Night Operation. An Operation Zone given these properties and necessary parameter settings is referred to as a Day / Night Operation Zone.

The building is divided into three sections, the CANTEEN, the SALES OFFICE and the CORRIDOR SOUTH, each section defined as a Detection Zone (1, 2 and 3). The system is divided into two Alarm Zones (1 and 2). The Electronic Sounder in Alarm Zone 1 is triggered when alarms are activated in Detection Zone 2, and the sounders (Fire Alarm Devices) in Alarm Zone 2 are triggered when alarms are activated in Detection Zone 1 and 3. One Operation Zone defines the scope of the Fire Alarm Control Panel BS-420, including all Detection Zones, Alarm Zones, plus Fire Alarm Routing Equipment and Fire Warning Routing Equipment. The BS-420 provides one Loop Driver BSD-310. All Loop Units are connected to this loop. The BS-420 also provides one Output Module BSB-310 with monitored outputs for Fire Alarm Routing Equipment (FARE), Fire Alarm Devices (FAD), Fire Protection Equipment (FPE) and Fault Warning Routing Equipment (FWRE).

The table below describes how the system is configured, and what is achieved.
Configuration
Operation Zones The Fire Alarm Control Panel in building A serves as an operating panel for all operation zones. The panel's defined Operation Zone 1 is on the top level, encompassing Operation Zone 2, 3 and 4. Fire Alarm Routing Equipment (FARE) The Output Module (BSB-310) in the Fire Alarm Control Panel is configured as follows: Each Operation Zone (1-4) has a dedicated output. Alarm Zones Each building is defined as an Alarm Zone. The Detection Zones in each building are connected to each building's Alarm Zone, and in addition to the main administration building's Alarm Zone. In addition, the following Neighbour Zones are defined: C is defined as a neighbour zone to B. B and D are defined as neighbour zones to C. C is defined as a neighbour zone to D.

What is achieved
This configuration allows the Fire Alarm Control Panel to operate, control and monitor the entire building complex. Information is selectively routed. In the event of a fire alarm in building B, for example, detailed information (information on the detection zone/detector) will be shown only on the panel's display in building B and in the main administration building. Remote information on the fire alarm location, i.e. building B, will be shown on the panel's display in building C and D. The buzzer will be activated on the panels in building A and B in the event of an alarm. A fire alarm in, for example, Operation Zone 3 will trigger output 3 on the output module. In this way, the fire brigade will be able to know exactly in which building the fire has occured, in this case, building C. A fire alarm from a detector in building B, for example, will activate all sounders (default 0,5 second ON / 0,5 second OFF) in this building, plus in the main administration building. Simultaneously, a neighbour alert signal (default 0,5 second ON / 3,5 seconds OFF) on all sounders will be heard in building C.
