For wired control systems, strobe flashes and horn outputs are synchronized per controller. For RUI and IDNet communications control, all controllers on the same host control panel are synchronized. (Combination speaker/strobe TrueAlert appliances receive audible control from separate audio circuit wiring.) * Model (0 VAC input) has been approved by the California State Fire Marshal (CSFM) pursuant to Section. of the California Health and Safety Code.

2 Introduction (Continued) TrueAlert addressable operation allows strobes to be wired onto the same two-wire SLC circuit as horns but with separately controlled operation. Typical applications are audible notification appliances activated as on-until-silenced and visible notification appliances activated as on-until-reset. RUI Communications Control When used with the 00 family fire alarm control panels (00/00U/0) with software Revision 9 or higher, the can be connected to an RUI addressable communications channel along with other RUI addressable devices. The host panel can control multiple s (maximum recommended is 0 per RUI connection). Refer to the diagram on page for additional RUI information and for general TrueAlert appliance wiring information. Address points and custom labels are assigned to each TrueAlert appliance allowing troubles to be reported individually. Additionally, individual device types are assigned and audible appliance coding types are selectable for high or low output (~ dba difference) and with operation as Temporal pattern, March Time pattern (0 or 0 bpm), or Continuous. Product Selection Virtual NAC Operation Groups (VNACs) provide control of TrueAlert appliances similar to conventional NAC operation. VNACs require point allocation, can be declared public for use in a Network fire alarm system, and can be manually controlled. (NOTE: The terms Virtual NAC, VNAC, and TrueAlert Zone refer to the same feature and are interchangeable.) For programming convenience, there are default VNAC groups according to device type. Up to custom VNACs can be created per (or per 00U TrueAlert Power Supply) with a combination of appliances assigned and with any appliance able to be in up to three custom VNACs. (NOTE: Appliances assigned to multiple VNACs will remain ON if any of the VNACs are ON.) Custom VNACs have circuit types and point types for flexibility in controlling either the audible or visible or both functions of each appliance depending on the activated VNACs and the appliances assigned. Extended Selective Signaling with 00U. 00U Fire Alarm Control Panels, with software revision.09 or higher, can be programmed for up to custom VNACs for increased selective signaling operation. diagnostics can be implemented from the control panel including: Silent or Active individual appliance magnet test, appliance LED polling indication, or all appliance LEDs on.

Each TrueAlert SLC channel can provide horn control selected as Temporal pattern, March Time pattern (0 or 0 bpm), or Continuous. Manual Control. Individual TrueAlert SLC channels can be manually controlled from the 00 for service operations or for manual override. Trouble Communications. The 00 receives troubles to include: device supervision (reported as a channel trouble), power trouble, battery integrity, and earth detect. Optional IDNet Repeater Modules. IDNet communications can be repeated with the optional IDNet Repeater Module or with the optional Fiber Optic Receiver Module. Up to 00 of the IDNet channel points can be repeated once (see illustrations below).

For applications where an existing (or new) conventional Notification Appliance Circuit (NAC) is available, the can be controlled directly from the NAC(s). (Refer to diagram below.) Flexible Connection Choices. Two NACs, from either the same, or from different host fire alarm control panels, can be connected to control the TrueAlert output channels. Multiple control selections provide flexible operation. (Refer to table below.) NAC input to SLC output control is selectable per the following table: Input NAC NAC NAC Output SLC Control Options A B Controls visibles Controls audibles Controls audibles and visibles on Channel Controls audibles and visibles on Channels and Strobes are operated with synchronized flashes. Horn operation is selectable per TrueAlert Addressable Controller as either: Temporal pattern, March Time pattern at either 0 or 0 bpm (input NACs must be on continuous with Alarm), or Continuous. Door Mounted Reference Label A detailed programming and diagnostic label is located inside the front door that provides a quick reference for both installation and checkout. Service Diagnostic Features Power-up Self-Diagnostics. Upon power-up, the tests each module and performs earth fault diagnostics. Trouble conditions are communicated to the host control panel and are also displayed on internal LEDs. System troubles via RUI or IDNet communications are reported with detailed information concerning which is involved and the nature of the trouble. Messages include power and battery status, earth fault, channel troubles, address problems, and other information. System Troubles via Wired Control. When controlled with conventional NAC inputs, common troubles are signaled by providing an open circuit that disconnects the NAC wiring from its end-of-line resistor but still allows a reversed polarity alarm to be received. LED Status Indicators are provided for the following: Five yellow status LEDs provide separate indications listed in priority of urgency. As a trouble is eliminated, any remaining trouble(s) will then be indicated until the is returned to normal operation Three separate yellow LEDs indicate which of the three TrueAlert channels are involved for channel specific troubles AC power status is indicated by a green LED that is on when AC is normal. During low AC (brownout) conditions or with no AC, the LED is off. Additional power and battery status is indicated by the general status LEDs with Wired Control NAC control for visible notification (on-until-silenced) or control both audibles and visibles on Channel Input NACs Three TrueAlert channels NAC Control for audible notification (on-until-reset) or control both audibles and visibles on Channels and F I R E TrueAlert Addressable Controller NAC control wiring can be populated with conventional notification appliances s controlled by two NAC inputs Fire Alarm Control Panel with Conventional NACs Additional NAC Control Up to four s can be connected to one conventional NAC S /00
