DESCRIPTION The Master Actuation Package, P/N 70-191, is used to operate the solenoid operated clean agent containers. The actuation package utilizes a 24 Vdc electric solenoid and is connected to a small cylinder filled with nitrogen. Operation of the master actuator occurs by either: 1. Electrical input from a fire control panel, or 2. Operation of a mechanical manual actuator Each clean agent container assembly requires a means of actuation. A single container assembly requires one Master Actuation Package. When multiple containers are in a manifold style arrangement, one Master Actuation Package is utilized to start the discharge sequence. All other containers on the manifold are equipped with a Slave Actuation Package (P/N 70-194), which includes a pneumatic valve and nitrogen pilot cylinder. A maximum of six additional containers can be operated from a single Master Actuation Package. ELECTRIC SOLENOID The Master Actuation Package includes a 24Vdc electric solenoid, which can be electrically or manually activated. In the event of facility power failure and battery backup failure, the Fike suppression system can still be manually operated. To initiate the manual activation operation, remove the locking pin and press the red manual activation button. This will initiate the discharge sequence. Once activated, the Master Actuator must be recharged by Fike or an authorized Fike distributor. NITROGEN CYLINDER The Master Actuation Package comes equipped with a rechargable nitrogen cylinder, with a charge pressure of 124 bar at 22oC. The nitrogen pressure is continuously monitored by a combination pressure gauge/switch assembly included in the actuator assembly. Refer to Fike Actuator Recharge Manual, P/N 06-321, for recharge instructions. PRESSURE GAUGE/SWITCH The master actuation package includes a combination pressure gauge and low- pressure supervisory switch that allows visual and control panel monitoring of the nitrogen cylinder pressure.
