Fire Alarm System Limitations

While a fire alarm system may lower insurance rates, it is not a substitute for fire insurance!

An automatic fire alarm system--typically made up of smoke detec-

tors, heat detectors, manual pull stations, audible warning devices, and a fire alarm control panel with remote notification capability--can provide early warning of a developing fire. Such a system, however, does not assure protection against property damage or loss of life resulting from a fire. The Manufacturer recommends that smoke and/or heat detectors be located throughout a protected premise following the recommendations of the current edition of the National Fire Protection Association Standard 72 (NFPA 72), manufacturer's recommendations, State and local codes, and the recommendations contained in the Guide for Proper Use of System Smoke Detectors, which is made available at no charge to all installing dealers. These documents can be found at http://www.systemsensor.com/html/applicat.html. A study by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (an agency of the United States government) indicated that smoke detectors may not go off in as many as 35% of all fires. While fire alarm systems are designed to provide early warning against fire, they do not guarantee warning or protection against fire. A fire alarm system may not provide timely or adequate warning, or simply may not function, for a variety of reasons:

Smoke detectors may not sense fire where smoke cannot reach the

bedrooms), smoking in bed, and violent explosions (caused by escaping gas, improper storage of flammable materials, etc.).

Heat detectors do not sense particles of combustion and alarm only when heat on their sensors increases at a predetermined rate or reaches a predetermined level. Rate-of-rise heat detectors may be subject to reduced sensitivity over time. For this reason, the rate-ofrise feature of each detector should be tested at least once per year by a qualified fire protection specialist. Heat detectors are designed to protect property, not life. IMPORTANT! Smoke detectors must be installed in the same room

as the control panel and in rooms used by the system for the connection of alarm transmission wiring, communications, signaling, and/or power. If detectors are not so located, a developing fire may damage the alarm system, crippling its ability to report a fire.

Audible warning devices such as bells may not alert people if these

devices are located on the other side of closed or partly open doors or are located on another floor of a building. Any warning device may fail to alert people with a disability or those who have recently consumed drugs, alcohol or medication. Please note that:

· · Strobes can, under certain circumstances, cause seizures in people with conditions such as epilepsy. Studies have shown that certain people, even when they hear a fire alarm signal, do not respond or comprehend the meaning of the signal. It is the property owner's responsibility to conduct fire drills and other training exercise to make people aware of fire alarm signals and instruct them on the proper reaction to alarm signals. In rare instances, the sounding of a warning device can cause temporary or permanent hearing loss.

detectors such as in chimneys, in or behind walls, on roofs, or on the other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors also may not sense a fire on another level or floor of a building. A second-floor detector, for example, may not sense a first-floor or basement fire.

Particles of combustion or "smoke" from a developing fire may not reach the sensing chambers of smoke detectors because: · · · · Barriers such as closed or partially closed doors, walls, or chimneys may inhibit particle or smoke flow. Smoke particles may become "cold," stratify, and not reach the ceiling or upper walls where detectors are located. Smoke particles may be blown away from detectors by air outlets. Smoke particles may be drawn into air returns before reaching the detector.

·

A fire alarm system will not operate without any electrical power. If

AC power fails, the system will operate from standby batteries only for a specified time and only if the batteries have been properly maintained and replaced regularly.

Equipment used in the system may not be technically compatible with the control panel. It is essential to use only equipment listed for service with your control panel. Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a premise to a

The amount of "smoke" present may be insufficient to alarm smoke detectors. Smoke detectors are designed to alarm at various levels of smoke density. If such density levels are not created by a developing fire at the location of detectors, the detectors will not go into alarm. Smoke detectors, even when working properly, have sensing limitations. Detectors that have photo-electronic sensing chambers tend to detect smoldering fires better than flaming fires, which have little visible smoke. Detectors that have ionizing-type sensing chambers tend to detect fast-flaming fires better than smoldering fires. Because fires develop in different ways and are often unpredictable in their growth, neither type of detector is necessarily best and a given type of detector may not provide adequate warning of a fire. Smoke detectors cannot be expected to provide adequate warning of fires caused by arson, children playing with matches (especially in

central monitoring station may be out of service or temporarily disabled. For added protection against telephone line failure, backup radio transmission systems are recommended.

The most common cause of fire alarm malfunction is inadequate

maintenance. To keep the entire fire alarm system in excellent working order, ongoing maintenance is required per the manufacturer's recommendations, and UL and NFPA standards. At a minimum, the requirements of NFPA 72 shall be followed. Environments with large amounts of dust, dirt or high air velocity require more frequent maintenance. A maintenance agreement should be arranged through the local manufacturer's representative. Maintenance should be scheduled monthly or as required by National and/or local fire codes and should be performed by authorized professional fire alarm installers

Installation Precautions

Adherence to the following will aid in problem-free installation with long-term reliability:

WARNING - Several different sources of power can be connected to the fire alarm control panel. Disconnect all sources of power before Like all solid state electronic devices this system may operate erratically or can be damaged when subjected to lightning-induced transients. Although no system is completely immune from lightning transients and interferences, proper grounding will reduce susceptibility. Overhead or outside aerial wiring is not recommended, due to an increased susceptibility to nearby lightning strikes. Consult with the Technical Services if any problems are anticipated or encountered. Disconnect AC power and batteries prior to removing or inserting circuit boards. Failure to do so can damage circuits. Remove all electronic assemblies prior to any drilling, filing, reaming,

servicing. The control unit and associated equipment may be damaged by removing and/or inserting cards, modules, or interconnecting cables while the unit is energized. Do not attempt to install, service, or operate this unit until this manual is read and understood.

CAUTION - System Reacceptance Test after Software Changes. To

ensure proper system operation, this product must be tested in accordance with NFPA 72 after any programming operation or change in site-specific software. Reacceptance testing is required after any change, addition or deletion of system components, or after any modification, repair or adjustment to system hardware or wiring. All components, circuits, system operations, or software functions known to be affected by a change must be 100% tested. In addition, to ensure that other operations are not inadvertently affected, at least 10% of initiating devices that are not directly affected by the change, up to a maximum of 50 devices, must also be tested and proper system operation verified.

This system meets NFPA requirements for operation at 0°C to 49°C

or punching of the enclosure. When possible, make all cable entries from the sides or rear. Before making modifications, verify that they will not interfere with battery, transformer, and printed circuit board location.

Do not tighten screw terminals more than 9 in-lbs. Over-tightening

may damage threads, resulting in reduced terminal contact pressure and difficulty with screw terminal removal.

Though designed to last many years, system components can fail at any time. This system contains static-sensitive components. Always ground yourself with a proper wrist strap before handling any circuits so that static charges are removed from the body. Use static-suppressive packaging to protect electronic assemblies removed from the unit. Follow the instructions in the installation, operating, and program-

(32°F to 120°F) and at a relative humidity 93% ± 2% RH (non-condensing) at 32°C ± 2°C (90°F ± 3°F). However, the useful life of the system's standby batteries and the electronic components may be adversely affected by extreme temperature ranges and humidity. Therefore, it is recommended that this system and all peripherals be installed in an environment with a nominal room temperature of 1527° C/60-80° F.

Verify that wire sizes are adequate for all initiating and indicating device loops. Most devices cannot tolerate more than a 10% I.R. drop from the specified device voltage.

5.3.1 About Monitoring Profiles

Monitoring Profiles allows the Admin User to select what nodes will be monitored by a Workstation. The profile is defined for a specific network and or node on a network. That profile determines what events are displayed by the Workstation. By using Monitoring and Control Profiles (page 58), supervision of portions of the network is possible. Monitoring Profiles can be created and saved using the fields on the Monitoring Profiles window. Monitoring Profiles are event annunciation filters that are setup to monitor or not to monitor an event location and its event type at the Workstation. · · The event's location in the system is selected in the Network|Node Assignment area of the window. The event location's event type (fire alarms, security, etc.) is selected in the Device Selection Status area of the window.

Show Only Off Normal Devices This selection will only display icons of points that are off normal (alarm, trouble, etc.). If there are no current events on the system there will be no points visible in the graphics display. Autoactivate Next Event After Acknowledge Use this select to auto-activate based on the acknowledge command. Once any events in the New Events window are acknowledged, the next event will autoactivate any linked files which are set to do so. This selection will also cause auto-navigation (if set). Not only will the next event display its' auto-activate linked media file will respond and the system will move to the Workstation floorplan area where that device is located. By default, points with linked media files which are set to auto-activate for events will only do so when they are the first event to appear in an empty New Events window. If an event is annunciated for a point and any other events are currently in the New Events window, then any linked files will not be autoactivated. Automatically Navigate on Event Use this selection to have the Workstation software application automatically display the screen where an off-normal event is taking place. It is recommended that this setting be enabled to ensure the highest level of response to an event. Extract Descriptions From Panel Use this selection to assign point descriptions as they are reported from the panel instead of using the locally defined descriptions. This description is coupled with the Event Box Label and displays the point description or properties. Most control and alarm panels contain a description that is sent over the network with panel messages. This option allows the Admin User to select whether these descriptions are used for each node or if the descriptions are entered at the Workstation when points are assigned for the panel. This feature applies only to nodes that have the capability to provide such a description.

About Un-acked Event Alarm Configuration Descriptions

These function manages how the Workstation software application supervises a User acknowledgement of new events. In security circles, this feature is commonly known as a "Dead Man." When enabled, this function monitors the New Event window status and activity. Unacked Event Timeout (3-60 Minutes) When an event appears in the New Event window a timer is started and will run for a Admin User defined time (3 ­ 60 min.). · · · If a User acknowledges an event before the timer expires, no action is taken. If any other events are outstanding in the New Event window, the timer is reset and starts again; otherwise, it is canceled. If the timer expires before an event is acknowledged, then a Admin User defined macro is initialized. This macro either activates or deactivates an output on the network (also Admin User defined). When the User selects this macro it creates an event when the output is activated/deactivated. The output can be used to trip any external point (horn, strobe, pager etc.) provided by the installer. Once the User acknowledges all New Events, a second Admin User defined macro is performed and that macro contains the reverse commands of the first macro.

Macro Activated on Alarm Is used to select from Admin User defined macros. For more details on defining macros, refer to "Macro Command Configuration" on page 68.

User Responses

Theses fields on this window allow the Admin User to modify the preset definitions that display for an event into custom responses. The text in these fields is text that will be displayed on a User response window as check-box options. When the Users makes a check-box selection it is recorded in the history data file.

5.5.1 About Control Profiles

Control Profiles allows the Admin User to select what network and nodes will be controlled by a Workstation. Also Control Profiles allows the right-click menu options (enable, disable, arm, disarm etc.) on point icons or events in the events boxes. The profile is defined for a specific network and or node on a network. That profile determines when a message is sent to a node, or an event for a point type is acknowledged, that message or acknowledgment would only be received locally if the Workstation did not have control of that node. Sometimes a User does not always monitor or respond to events that may occur in other monitored locations in the system. By using Monitoring (page 44) and Control Profiles, supervision of portions of the network is possible. Control Profiles can be created and saved using the fields on the Control Profiles Configuration window. Control Profiles can be configured to include or exclude any combination of nodes being monitored and controlled by the system. Control Profiles can be selected at the network and node levels in a network's hierarchy. In the Control Profile Select window under the PROFILES heading is the name of the Control Profile. Adjacent to the PROFILES heading is the hierarchy of networks and nodes on the network for that profile. There is a Controlled By field that displays the IP address of the Workstation that has control of that portion of the system or None if no Workstation has control. If a Workstation does not have control of a node, all actions taken at a Workstation in regards to that node are local only. For example, an acknowledge command at the Workstation tallies on the Workstation, but the node doesn't receive it. In addition, only one Workstation can have control of any node at any time. When control of a node is activated at a Workstation, it is deactivated at the other Workstation that previously had control. It might be necessary to assume control of a profile or node from the current Workstation, in doing it is important to know that in doing so, only one Workstation can control any single profile or point at a given time. The factory defined Control Profile Default is set to not control any networks and nodes. The first Control Profile created will be based on that Default profile. Therefore to control networks or nodes the profile will need to be modified and then changes applied.

To avoid this undesirable behavior do the following. Step 1. Create your custom icons with your graphic software application (256 x 256 PNG file formats highly recommended). Step 2. Auto-create your points on the Workstation (refer to "Auto-Create Gateway Point IDs" on page 37). Step 3. Copy and paste your custom icons into the appropriate C:\FacilitiesMonitoring\Data\System folder on the Workstation: Devices - for auto-created points Buttons - for Macro Buttons Images - for hazard, information icons, etc. Step 4. Launch the Configuration Tool and then edit the data base (refer to "Workstation Database Modifications" on page 38). Step 5. Use the Configuration Tool's spread sheet operation to find and select the existing icon that will be replaced by your custom icon. Step 6. Use the spread sheet's Explorer function to locate and then select the custom icon from the folder you pasted it into. Step 7. Replace one of the existing icon names with the custom icon name. Step 8. Copy the spread sheet cell and copy and paste it into the cells containing the name of the existing icon. Step 9. Save the spread sheet and close the window. Step 10. You must Exit the Configuration Tool and then respond to the Save Changes prompt with the applicable button click to update the Workstation with the information created in this procedure.

Section 6 Workstation Screen Graphical User Interface Management

NOTE: If you are not familiar with the Workstation's graphical user interface, please refer to the "ONYXWorksTM Workstation User's Guide" on page 131 for information.

6.1 Overview

NOTE: The Workstation must be logged into before any of its settings can be configured. A User that has the Security Option to configure settings needs to login to change an existing setting. The factory defined User "Admin" has such a Security Option. Information in this document is written assuming that a User with the equivalent Security Option of the "Admin" User will be performing the procedures in this document.

The sequence in which these tasks are performed is determined by the Admin User performing them and this list is a suggested guideline to ensure that Workstation software application is configured correctly.

Auto-Creation of Workstation Screens, Nodes, and Points

6.2 Auto-Creation of Workstation Screens, Nodes, and Points

NOTE: Every Addressable Device must be represented on a Workstation screen as a point icon. If ONYXWorksTM Workstation software application auto-create function has been disabled, meaning the check box that controls the operation has been uncheck, or if a Addressable Device has been deleted, then the first time the Addressable Device reports an event an Addressable Device will be assigned to the default Workstation screen. Device icons generated in that manner should be edited to ensure all information is complete and relocated to an appropriate Workstation screen.

6.2.1 Description

The Admin User must determine how the system's Navigation Tree (Tree) hierarchy will be organized and thus displayed after any auto-creation process takes place. The auto-creation process takes place each time a new point on the gateway is found through it reporting to Workstation with off-normal event. Refer to "Manage the Auto-Creation Process" on page 77 for information. The auto-creation process of the ONYXWorksTM Workstation software application does the following. · · A parent screen is created for the gateway, a child screen for the node, a child screen under that for the points for that node. It will place 64 point icons on a Workstation screen before it creates the next screen.

The Tree entries for a Workstation screen will be created, added, and named as follows: GW003 NFN Screen 1 where: ­ G003 is the alias name that was assigned to the gateway during its configuration. ­ NFN is the type of gateway (i.e. ECH, NFN, RCV). ­ Screen 1 is one of the enumerated screens for this gateway.

Figure 6.2 Example of Navigation Tree with Auto-Creation Process Each auto-created Tree entry, by default, will be placed in the Tree at random levels. An asterisk next to a entry's name indicates that the auto-creation process has created the Tree entry and its name. It also indicates its position in the Tree has not been redefined by the Admin User. In the example shown in the Figure 6.2 on page 76 the G003 NFN Screen 2 can be created due to the result of G001 NFN Screen 1 having over 64 point icons created on it. In other words Screen 1 became too full and Screen 2 was auto-created with additional addressable points. The Admin User can organize the Navigation Tree in such a manner it will aid the User with locating a specific event in a campus (site) or building. The Navigation Tree can be arranged in a parent-child hierarchical-relationship so a User can, in a logical progression, "drill-down" from a

site view to the floor plan of a building on that site. The tree also shows at what level of the hierarchy an event is occurring. For an event colored-highlighted boxes appear at the left side of the tree and correspond to the highest priority event.

Figure 6.3 Sample Navigation Tree Hierarchy

NOTE: Any and all screen can have a child screens but four (4) is the maximum of child screens allowed directly under any one screen.

6.2.2 Manage the Auto-Creation Process

Restructure the Navigation Tree After the Auto-Creation Process

Auto-created Workstation screens can: · · · · Be renamed. Be cut and copied below another Tree entry. Be reordered, refer to "Reordering Workstation Screens" on page 77. NOT be deleted if there are point icons on the screen. Cut and copy the point icons onto another screen or just delete the points on the screen.

A Workstation screen may be recreated if the system finds a point that is not currently in the screen database and a new addressable point needs to be auto-created. Reordering Workstation Screens The Configuration Tool is used to reorder screens. When the Configuration Tool is open you can use a right-click on the screen in the Navigation Tree, then it can drag and drop screens to adjust the hierarchical level (i.e. "promote" a screen from child to peer, or demote the screen from peer to child). Dropping between screen levels will place the screen between those levels. After screens are moved. Navicons maintain their link to the screen. Reordering Workstation Screen Methods · · · Drag and drop a Workstation screen from/to any position in the list. Use the Tab key to move a given screen down one level, and Shift >Tab to move the selected screen up one level. Right-click on a screen in the Navigation Tree and options display as in the following figure.

Section 7 ONYXWorksTM Workstation Data Management

7.1 Data Management Overview

NOTE: The Workstation must be logged into before any of its settings can be configured. A User that has the Security Option to configure settings needs to login to change an existing setting. The factory defined User "Admin" has such a Security Option. Information in this document is written assuming that a User with the equivalent Security Option of the "Admin" User will be performing the procedures in this document.

The sequence in which these tasks are performed is determined by the Admin User performing them and this list is a suggested guideline to ensure that Workstation software application is configured correctly. · · · · "About Database Management" on page 86. "About History Manager" on page 88. "System Explorer Searches" on page 97. "Key Upgrade Utility" on page 99.

About Database Management

7.2 About Database Management

Workstation data management is accomplished using these PC Monitor choices and choices made under the Workstation Configure >Options menu.

Compact and Repair System Data

This command is selected from the PC Monitor's right click list of choices. Compact System Data When an entry is deleted from a database in the Workstation it is flagged as being deleted. If the next database entry to be added will fit in the deleted entry's location, it will be stored in that location. Like most databases the Workstation database can grow larger in size over time because of unused space. The Workstation will rebuild its index file and remove the dead space in the file. This command is typically performed automatically each day, but it is recommended that a database be compacted manually any time a large portion of that database is deleted. Compacting does not delete or modify any actual data, so periodic compacting of the database is a good idea for optimal system performance. Repair System Data

NOTE: Please contact Technical Services before you attempt to repair your systems data.

This command provides the option to repair databases. Damage to the database is caused by software or hardware level corruption of the database file. If some portion of the file index becomes damaged, the file will be unreadable. If this corruption does not affect the actual entries, or only a portion, the database is repairable. The repair functions reconstruct the index file, and unreference any damaged entries. Use this functions if a database file will not open properly or its information seems damaged.

Backup System Data

This Workstation command provides the Admin User the options to back up all the systems databases. The operation prompts for you create a folder in which to store the system data. It is recommended you use a folder name with the current date (for example MySystemDataBackup0307-07). Any time Workstation editing is completed, it is recommended a back up the databases is performed. Backing up after each time databases are edited insures that there is a backup copy of the latest database file stored on the computer. In addition, if any changes are made that need to be undone, the backup copy can be restored. It is recommended that you store system data created in the folder you create during a system backup on an external storage device, such as a CD-ROM or server. The Workstation has a CDRW type drive and you can use CD-R or CD-RW media in it.

About History Manager

7.3 About History Manager

The History Manager is a application program interface for viewing all of the events that are currently stored in the history database of a network client application. It serves as a viewer that can organize all events that pass through the Workstation software application. The History Manager allows a set of filters to be applied to the events in order to view specific event types, points, and events for specific dates. It can be accessed from the View...History menu item within a network client (such as the Workstation), or it can be started stand-alone (called from outside the application environment) from the Start >Programs >Facilities Monitoring >Utilities >History Manager.

Figure 7.1 History Manager Main Window The information bar at the bottom of the window displays the number of entries in the database, which events are being shown, the date and current time. At the top of the window are the File and Tools menu selections. The lists the events: · · · Are displayed according to any applied filters. Can be the current history file or an archived history file. Displayed depends on what specific application provided the database.

Section 8 ONYXWorksTM System Architecture Descriptions

8.1 About the System Architecture

The ONYXWorksTM system is designed to provide clear and precise annunciation of life safety and other building system events. The preciseness of that annunciation enables the responding personnel to identify the location of a life safety event quickly and accurately. The status of the emergency equipment or fire safety functions that might affect the safety of the occupants is also easily identifiable. An ONYXWorksTM Workstations (Workstation) and gateways communicate over an Ethernet (TCP/IP) network. Gateways also communicate with other panels and networks of fire alarm and protective equipment. Each gateway relays Ethernet protocol messages from the monitored equipment using the equipment's native protocol to the Workstation. An ONYXWorksTM system supports 99 gateway connections. The minimum ONYXWorksTM system is one Workstation and one gateway. Several types of gateways are available, such as ONYXWorksTM Echelon Gateway, ONYXWorksTM NFN Gateway PC and Embedded. An ONYXWorksTM NFN Gateway exists as a node on a NFN network. The Workstation can be installed on a dedicated TCP/IP network, or part of a shared TCP/IP network such as the Internet. It can be part of a customer's enterprise (or corporate) TCP/IP network. Canada installations require a dedicated TCP/IP network. Shared bandwidth TCP/IP connectivity allows the ONYXWorksTM system design to be versatile and flexible for various system requirements. Workstations, gateways, and other clients can be located in close proximity to each other or separated by many miles. ONYXWorksTM system nodes can be controlled from any Workstation located on the contiguous property being monitored. Clients that have monitoring capabilities to non-contiguous properties may not control that property without the approval of Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).

8.2 Fire Command Center (FCC) Mode Overview (PPU)

8.2.1 Architecture for FCC Mode

An ONYXWorksTM system is an ideal solution for facility monitoring and control. The ONYXWorksTM Workstation software application provides extensive control and monitoring functions for fire, security, and building automation of local and remote sites. The software application can be customized to adapt to a wide variety of monitoring and control situations. The software application allows a User with the appropriate Security Option to allow/disallow access to the application by adding other Users and creating security profiles for them. Those other Users typically, when they are logged in, will be monitoring a portion of local and remote sites. Workstation software applications in FCC mode comply with the requirements for UL and NFPA for Protected Premises Units (PPU). The Workstation was designed to warn building monitoring personnel of potential life safety situations so that they can take the necessary actions to evacuate the premises. In FCC mode, there is always one Workstation and one NFN gateway. The NFN gateway can be installed on the same PC that is running the Workstation software application or an optionally installed embedded NFN gateway. The choice of which gateway to use will be dependent on the system layout.

NOTE: FCC mode is NOT supported when a gateway other than the NFN gateway is used and if there are more than one gateway in the ONYXWorksTM system.

NOTE: If multiple gateways are present or required, the Workstation software application must run in Supervising Station mode.

8.2.2 Event Handling Overview for FCC Mode

The following features are provided by the Workstation when FCC mode is running. · · · · Block Acknowledge of troubles, supervisory, and security events. Always requires an individual acknowledgement of Fire Alarm and Hold-up events. Display and Command Center (DCC). Performance: · Annunciation of alarm signals at the Workstation in FCC mode (PPU) occurs within 10 seconds after the activation of an initiating point (device). · Trouble signals and their restoration to normal shall be indicated within 200 seconds.

· In FCC in which the fire system is sharing bandwidth on an TCP/IP network with other systems, a UL listed barrier gateway, integral with or attached to each control unit or group of control units, as appropriate, shall be provided to prevent the other systems from interfering with or controlling the fire alarm system. A barrier gateway is not required on dedicated TCP/IP networks. All signal control and transport equipment (such as routers, servers) used with the ONYXWorksTM system in FCC mode shall be listed for fire alarm service. For example: Contemporary Control Systems Inc. (www.ctrlink.com) has several UL864 recognized switching hubs that will meet the requirements of a barrier gateway.

·

NOTE: For ULC applications, the Internet cannot be used for either primary or ancillary functionality. ULC does not allow operation over an Internet connection.

8.2.4 FCC Mode Agency Approval

In FCC Mode, ONYXWorksTM systems are classified as a Protected Premises Fire Alarm System Unit and meet all the regulatory agency's requirements for a protected premises unit. The ONYXWorksTM Workstation software application is approved, in compliance with the NFPA, for the remote resetting and silencing of a fire alarm control unit from other than the protected premises provided the authority having jurisdiction approves it.

Proprietary Supervising Station Mode Overview

8.3 Proprietary Supervising Station Mode Overview

8.3.1 Architecture For Supervising Station Mode

Proprietary supervising station fire alarm systems monitor the life safety systems of the protected premises that is under the same ownership. The supervising station can be located at the protected premises or at multiple protected properties. Properties may consist of a single building, such as a high-rise building, or several buildings, such as a campus where multiple separate buildings report to a proprietary supervising station owned and operated by the campus. The property may be contiguous or non-contiguous. If it is non-contiguous, it may consist of protected properties at remote locations. Codes do not limit the geographic distance that may exist between noncontiguous properties. This permits an owner to oversee protection features at geographically diverse locations from a single proprietary supervising station. The ONYXWorksTM system is a Proprietary Supervising Station Fire Alarm System and may serve contiguous and non-contiguous properties, under one ownership. Monitoring is typically performed from a proprietary supervising station located at the protected property, or at one of multiple non-contiguous protected properties, at which trained, competent personnel are in constant attendance. Monitoring may include, but is not limited to, the proprietary supervising station; power supplies, signal-initiating points, initiating point circuits, signal notification appliances, equipment for the automatic, permanent visual recording of signals; and equipment for initiating the operation of emergency building control services. ONYXWorksTM systems are permitted to be interconnected with other systems intended to make the premises safer. In Supervising Station mode, the ONYXWorksTM system supports up to 99 gateways. Multiple NFN gateways, Echelon gateways, and Receiver gateways are supported simultaneously and can be constantly supervised and communicating with the same Workstation. An NFN gateway and an Echelon gateway can both be installed in the same Workstation if required. They can also span the TCP/IP network and exist on multiple Workstations or embedded hardware. The choice of which gateways to use and where they should be located is application specific and should be analyzed by a trained individual.

System Security

ONYXWorksTM System Architecture Descriptions

8.6 System Security

The Workstation software application uses security controls to ensure that computer is not disabled by unauthorized personnel. Hardware protections and software protections are both used.

8.6.1 Hardware Security

The Workstation's power connection must be secured with special hardware and the computer's power switch disabled. The Workstation must be protected from power failures with proper line current surge protection and an Uninterrupted Power Supply (UPS). Refer to the following for more information: · · "Workstation AC Power Connection Preparation" on page 16. "Uninterruptable Power Supply (UPS) Installation" on page 20.

8.6.2 Software Security

NOTE: The Workstation must be logged into before any of its settings can be configured. A User that has the Security Option to configure settings needs to login to change an existing setting. The factory defined User "Admin" has such a Security Option. Information in this document is written assuming that a User with the equivalent Security Option of the "Admin" User will be performing the procedures in this document.

The methods of Workstation software security are: · Control/Command Key Lockouts This type of lockout disables the Workstation's keyboard keys that are used to access Windows programs that are not part of the Workstation software applications. For example, keyboard key combinations can be used to shut-down or restart the Workstation and for switching between software applications. The PC Monitor's Secure Windows selection disables those types of operations. · User Security Options User accounts can be created with differing levels of access to the ONYXWorksTM system. The User's Security Option choice determines which functions are visible or selectable. For example, some User accounts may not have permission to exit the Workstation software application. Refer to "User Configuration" on page 63 for information.

Workstation Event Handling Basics

8.7 Workstation Event Handling Basics

Trouble in the life safety system is detected by Workstation software application and reported as off-normal events. When off-normal events that are received from a fire alarm panel and points are reported to the Workstation and if the Workstation is in Graphics Mode these display changes will take place if Autonavigate has been selected (refer to "Automatically Navigate on Event" on page 56). 1. When an event(s) occur(s) the Workstation navigates to the location of the event(s) in the system and displays the highest-priority unacknowledged event by a flashing its respective icon in the Workstation screen. If there are multiple events and all unacknowledged events are taking place in the same ONYXWorksTM system location, all unacknowledged event icons will be flashing on the Workstation screen. 2. There could be multiple highest-priority unacknowledged events and the following will reveal them for acknowledging. a. Read the list of events in the New Events window. b. The Navigation area will display colored boxes next to the affected Navigation Tree entry. To determine multiple highest-priority unacknowledged events use with the following colors if they have not been changed from the factory default settings. Red: alarm. Yellow: trouble and supervisory. Blue: disable and security. c. Read the incremental list in the Alarm Summary window. d. The corresponding event icon(s) will display in the Event Annunciator Icon window. e. When an event is acknowledged the icon stops flashing but displays the off normal color.

ONYXWorksTM Workstation Installation & Operation Manual - P/N: 52342:Rev: D 06/01/07

Appendix A: Glossary

A Absolute Address The absolute address is the actual physical address of an addressable device on the network. An absolute address is a 14 character string that consists of a three digit node ID, a three digit subnode ID, and an 8 character (alphanumeric) point ID. Alias ID A 14 character name for a addressable device that is custom defined by the Admin User. Alias IDs can be used in place of Absolute IDs to make identification of the device easier for the User. Alias ID is also referred to as the Display ID. B Bitmap (.BMP) Graphic file format. Basic image data is stored in the form of a grid of pixels, each with a certain color. Bitmaps are the standard method of importing and transporting image type information. Bitmap files each have a specific size in pixels. Because of this, they may degrade in quality if they are zoomed or re-sized. Files are identified with the extension *.BMP. Boolean A boolean is a binary value that is either on or off. Examples include check-boxes and other options that require one of the two settings. C Child Screen Refer to Parent Screen. Command Buttons Up to eight Taskbar buttons can be Admin User configured to perform common system operations. Defined through the Configuration menu. (Separate from the Macro Buttons that appear on a specified Workstation screen.) Control Profiles Control profiles determine what addressable devices the workstation is currently supervising. If a workstation does not have control of a device, commands and actions relating to that device will affect only the device on that workstation, not in the network. In order to affect a device on the network, the User must have control of that addressable device. D Digital Alarm Receiver An addressable device connected to a network in a ONYXWorksTM system; the receiver routes incoming calls from dialers connected to remote panels and directs resulting messages to the ONYXWorksTM Workstation. Discrete Devices Discrete addressable devices are monitored nodes, points, and panels with defined (discrete) states or conditions. These conditions are annunciated at the workstation. For example, a pullstation either reports a normal state, an alarm state, or a trouble state. Normal state indicates normal operation,

ONYXWorksTM Workstation Installation & Operation Manual - P/N: 52342:Rev: D 06/01/07 117

Alarm state shows that the pull-station has been activated, and a Trouble state indicates a functional problem with the device. Display ID Refer to Alias ID. E Echelon Gateway The Echelon Gateway translates information on the LonWorks network into information that can be used by a ONYXWorksTM Workstation in the ONYXWorksTM system. Echelon Network LonWorks Technologies open architecture standard used for communication between devices and the Echelon Gateway on the ONYXWorksTM system. Ethernet Network communication standard using the TCP/IP protocol. Connects gateways in the ONYXWorksTM system. Event An Event is any change in the status of an addressable device or a transfer of information between a device and either the workstation or another device. Some of these events are considered background and housekeeping events, and are not seen by the User. The events that are of primary concern to the User are those identified as off-normal events. Event Printer An event printer is a dot matrix printer that connects to ONYXWorksTM Workstation and prints all events that are annunciated at the workstation. F Fire Alarm Event Event issued by fire protection devices such as pull-stations, smoke detectors, and sprinkler systems. Floorplan Area The Floorplan Area provides the primary source of the workstation visual feedback and interaction with the ONYXWorksTM system. Functional Buttons Refer to Macro Buttons.

Glossary

G Gateway Gateways connect the ONYXWorksTM Workstation to a specific fire alarm network, and to other ONYXWorksTM Workstation all of which make up an ONYXWorksTM system. A Gateway may be installed in the Workstation or an independent wallmounted unit. Graphics Printer The graphics printer is attached to the workstation using the parallel port and is configured through the standard Windows® printer interface. A Graphics printer can be used to print various reports, floor plans, and lists from the workstation. Guidance Text Guidance text is linked text associated with a specific Workstation screen. Usually this material relates to special procedures or precautions. Guidance text provides text explanations to Users about what to do in special emergency situations, such as instructions for calling facility managers in case of a fire alarm. H Hardlock Key The Hardlock Key attaches to the USB port of a Workstation and provides authorization and feature information to the workstation. A Hardlock Key is needed for each Workstation running the software. History Database Maintains a record of all events and actions that take place in the ONYXWorksTM system. The history database can become the largest of all the database files. HVAC Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning. I Information Labels An information label hyperlinks to text, pictures, video, and/or sound, to provide details about locations monitored by the ONYXWorksTM system. These are not physical devices; they are clicked-on to display important information for the User or for emergency responders. Suggested pop-ups are pictures of hazardous materials storage areas; special warnings and instructions for hazardous materials; construction area designations; and locations of emergency exits. IP Address An IP address is a unique identifier that represents a connection of a TCP/IP network. IP addresses are used to address individual workstations and servers on the ONYXWorksTM system. L Linked Information Any addressable device or information label on the floor plan can have linked information. Linked information can be text, video, bitmaps, and sound. To access the linked information

on a device (either addressable or an information label), right-click-on the icon to display the pop-up menu and then make the appropriate selection. M Macro Macros are used to define custom commands for communication with particular devices on the network. Macros can be defined to perform a variety of different commands (dependent on the point type), to one or more specified devices. Macro Buttons Macro Buttons are added to the Workstation screen to perform macro functions that have been previously defined by the Admin User. These are sometimes referred to as Functional Buttons. They can be customized more than the Command Buttons that appear on the ONYXWorksTM Workstation Taskbar. Member database Refer to User Database. Monitoring Profiles Monitoring profiles allow the User to select exactly what events are seen by the workstation, organized based on selecting specific nodes, sub-nodes and devices. Monitoring assignments are the job of the Admin User, who creates a number of profiles that can be selected by the User. Usually these profiles are created around a physical or operational structure, such as by building or by work shift. Mouse-over Window A window that pops-up a window with additional information about something on the Workstation screen when the mouse pointer is position over it. N Navicons User-defined icons on the Workstation's screen that provides a shortcut to another Workstation screen. Function is similar to hyperlinks on a web page. Navigational Buttons Refer to Navicons NION Network Input Output Node. A device with the necessary protocol to provide communication dialog between the addressable devices on a network with the workstation. Node Number A node number is the ID for any given node on a network. O Off-Normal Event An off-normal event is an event which indicates activity or change in a condition that requires the attention and/or response of an User. Overview The Overview provides either an overview of the currently displayed Workstation screen (without devices, buttons, or other objects).

Glossary

P Paired Event Events which, after acknowledgment, still require another event to return the associated device to its original state. This second event may be initiated by the User (as in the case of sending a reset to a device or panel), or the original device itself (such as an alarm server which originally went off-line and is coming back on-line). Devices can send more than one off-normal event before the related return state event is sent, for example a fire panel may have more than one alarm state, and these will not clear until all events have cleared and the panel reports an all clear state. Panel A panel is a central gateway that connects a number of related devices together. For example, a fire panel might have smoke detectors, pull-stations, sprinkler systems, and sirens all connected at the panel. This also allows the workstation to communicate directly with the panel instead of the individual device. Parent Screen In the navigation tree's outline view, the highest level is the Title Screen. The Gateways, nodes, and devices that branch off of it are its Child Screens. A parent screen can have zero or many child screens. The highest level is the Title Screen; it cannot be a child. Plug-In A Plug-In can be in one of two forms, either an *.EXE application or a *.CFG configuration file. Plug-In Applets are independently operating software applications. They interface with the workstation at the local level. Configuration files act to create new menu options by defining `macro' commands or sequences of information for communicating with specific devices. Configuration files may or may not launch independent applications. Point Icons An Admin User defined graphic element on a Workstation screen. Each represents a physical addressable device on the network. Point ID The point identification (ID) is the eight character alphanumeric address suffix for the monitored point reported by the node. The Point ID for each device must match the point ID reported by the node. The point ID makes up the last 8 characters of a device's absolute address. Pop-Up Menu Pop-Up Menus provide the User with device specific information and controls. The device pop-up menu is activated by right-clicking-on any addressable device. The menu that appears depends on the point type, situation, and the access permissions of the User. Some options are common to all addressable devices, while others have functions that are point type specific.

Pull-station A pull-station is a fire related device which, when activated (generally by pulling a lever or switch) triggers an alarm at the panel, activating audible alarms and other pre-configured devices. R Receivers Gateway Acts as a bridge between the supported digital alarm receivers and the ONYXWorksTM system. S Screen Screens are the fundamental visual interface between gateways and the User. Screens are displayed in the Floor Plan Area of the main display. Each system can contain numerous screens, and screens can contain floor plans, graphics, and/or devices. Screen Database The Screen Database holds information for the backgrounds, devices, buttons, etc. for all of the Workstation screens and gateways on the ONYXWorksTM system. Security Alarm Event An event issued by security related devices such as motion detectors, glass break detectors, and door contacts. Security Options User functionality and activity are controlled by the assignment of security profiles. Each User and Admin User is assigned a security profile with their system member record. Security profiles contain a list of all workstation functions to which anyone assigned to that profile is allowed access. Single Ended Event An event that, once it is received, leaves the sending device in the same condition that it was in originally. Site A site is the physical location being protected by an ONYXWorksTM system installation, i.e. the building itself. (Refer to the Gateway definition for the building's virtual organization within the network.) Site Annunciation Icons Site Annunciation icons are special point icons that represent the overall condition of a site monitored on the network. Site Annunciation icons have two states: normal and offnormal. The state of a Site annunciation icon is dependent on the condition of the devices at the site it represents. If all devices at the represented site are in normal condition, then the site annunciation icon displays a normal condition. If any device at the site reports an off-normal condition, then the site annunciation icon is changed to be displayed in an offnormal condition. Supervisory Alarm Event A Supervisory alarm is a special alarm to indicate action that has functionally disabled a key device (for either fire protection or security). An example of this is the event generated if the water valve is shut off for a sprinkler system.

Glossary

T Taskbar This area of the workstation screen displays Admin User configured command buttons and openwindow tabs. The Taskbar is located between the Navigation Tree and the workstation's Toolbar. TCP/IP The protocol used by the workstation level of the ONYXWorksTM network that provides communication among workstations, and gateways. Title Screen Refer to Parent Screen. Toolbar The area of the workstation screen directly below the Main Menu, providing icons for commonly used functions. Trouble Event A Trouble Event indicates a functional problem with a addressable device on the network. Examples of trouble events include a device or workstation going off-line, a battery low or no power event, a dirty head on a smoke detector, etc. U UPS Uninterrupted Power Supply. A UPS is used between the building's power source and the workstation and provides battery backup. A UPS will allow the workstation to continue to operate as usual for a period of time determined by the UPS's rating. User Database The User Database holds all of the information pertaining to members of the ONYXWorksTM system. This includes Users and Admin Users with access to the monitored gateways. V Vector Graphics Vector Graphics are based on lines, boxes, curves, and fills between discrete points in two dimensional space. Because all objects are described as sets of points, lines, curves, and fills that can be recreated at any scale, vector drawings are freely scalable over an unlimited range with no loss of resolution. This makes vector drawings ideal for floor plan layouts and detailed design work. W Windows® MetaFile (.WMF) Graphic files that hold vector drawing information, discrete points, lines, and curves. *.WMF files are used in the workstation predominately for importing floor plans. Because the *.WMF format is vector-based, the information in WMF files can be re-sized without loss of resolution and quality. When dealing with floor plans in the workstation, this is very important as it allows the floor plan to be zoomed in without degrading resolution of the lines. Files are identified with the extension *.WMF.

Workstation Workstation is the standard name for a computer running the ONYXWorksTM Workstation software application. It is possible for a Workstation PC to also run Gateway software if the appropriate network card is also installed.

Appendix B: Details about Event Data

B.1 Event Data

NOTE: All data is current as of publication however, new events may be added in the future.

Each event within the ONYXWorksTM system has its own unique properties. These properties include normal and off-normal conditions, abbreviations for the event, color codes, and the priority of the event. Included in this index are tables that provide the information in a simplified format.

B.2 Event Priority

Priority is the most important of the event specific information because it affects which events are annunciated by the Workstation first. Knowing the priority of events provides an understanding about the severity of various events, and how events interrelate. Priority is ordered in groups as defined by UL/ULC. Each event within a group has equal priority. These groups are (highest to lowest) Fire Alarm and Process Alarm, Supervisory and Fire Trouble Signals, Holdup and Burglar Alarms, and Other Signals. Each event within the ONYXWorksTM system has a corresponding color. This color coding is used when displaying the event on-screen, when viewing events in history manager, and various other applications throughout the software. Table B.2, "Event Color Coding" shows each event type and its corresponding color. Keep in mind that this lists off-normal events only. Each off-normal event has a corresponding normal event. Every Normal discrete event within the Workstation is displayed with the color gray when in Graphic Mode.

NOTE: Workstation default color codes are discussed here. Admin Users can customize these color choices if required by their Authority Having Jurisdiction. Always document custom color schemes for future reference.

Details about Event Data

B.3 Event Abbreviations and Annunciation

Each event has an actual event name and is usually a descriptive name for what has occurred. However because in some situations character space is limited, the event database maintains an abbreviation for each event. In most cases, the event associated with an abbreviation is probably obvious, but they have all been included here for clarity. Events which have an (N/A) in the Normal column are non-paired events. These events are annunciated at the Workstation but do not require a second event to reset the device to a normal condition. After a single event is acknowledged, its effect on the Workstation is over. Table B.3 Event Abbreviations

C.1.6 Workstation Floorplan Area

The Workstation floorplan area title identifies which area of an ONYXWorksTM system that is currently being displayed on the Workstation's display. The Workstation floorplan area usually has a building floor plan that is background layer and serves you as the primary source for visual feedback the location of an off-normal event in an ONYXWorksTM system which corresponds to the point's (device) location in a building. The point types can be a fire alarm control panel, fire protection devices, security devices, and cameras.

C.1.7 Graphic Elements Descriptions

Point Icons

These graphic elements represent a physical addressable device on the system. Examples of point icons are fire panels, and fire protection devices, and NION interfaces. A name of the point displays above the icon and at times its status is displayed below it. If the point's status becomes off-normal, its icon will flash and information about its status will be displayed below it. Clicking on an icon displays a box with detailed information across the bottom of the Workstation screen. The information reflects the current state of the associated icon.

Navicons

These graphic elements represent a method to navigate between Workstation floorplan areas to find points or an event. They are used exclusively to find an event if in the Autonavigate feature has not been set to autonavigate to an off-normal event. Each Workstation floorplan area (parent) has one Navicon that hyper-links to each of its respective subordinate (child screen) Workstation floorplan areas (refer to the navigation tree hierarchy). Navicons change color to match the off-normal event that is reported to the Workstation. They are used to locate an event on parent or child screen; follow the same colored Navicon to find an event.

Information Labels

These graphic elements represent important information for the you during monitoring. That information can be a photograph, a text document, a video, or a sound clip. Information Labels use an asterisk to identify them as such. One suggested use is to provide firefighters with an image of hazardous materials stored on-site. Factory defined and Admin User assigned control commands are available for all point icons, navicons, and information labels. Those commands are accessed with right-clicks-on its navigation tree entry or right-clicks-on its icon.

NOTE: Control commands are available only when you have a node control and security profile that allows it.

NOTE: Only one Workstation can control any single system device at a given time. Taking control of a device removes control from the previous supervisor of that device.

C.1.9 New Event

When an event is reported to a Workstation, the Workstation will display the event information in the "New Events" area and sound an audible alarm at the station. The Workstation will autonavigate to the Workstation floorplan area that has the highest priority event. New Events are events that have been reported to and received by the Workstation but not yet acknowledged by you. Once you acknowledges an event, the event moves to the Acknowledged Events list. New Events are displayed in this manner: · · · If the event is acknowledged at the panel "Acked" will be displayed prefixing the event in the New Events list. If the workstation has node control of the point a colored box will display to the left of the event in the Navigation Tree. If the event is unreliable (meaning it was reported while a gateway or node was in fault) an * will be displayed prefixing the event in the New Events list.

C.1.10 Acknowledged Events

Once your acknowledges an event, the event is added to the Acknowledged Events listing. The Acknowledged Events listing only displays events that have been received by the Workstation and have been acknowledged by you.

The Alarm Summary window will display a list that is running total of new and acknowledged events by type; they are listed in order of priority. The Alarm Summary window by default is hidden and is revealed by clicking-on the arrows adjacent to the Alarm Summary title. Clicking on the alarm summary icons displays a list of all the points currently in that state.

C.1.12 Event Annunciator Icon

Event Annunciation Icons display in a highlighted priority related-color when an event is reported to the Workstation. They are always visible and remain in a highlighted priority related-color until all off-normal conditions have been resolved. You can identified these icons by placing the mouse's cursor over the icon and reading the hint that is displayed. The following describes the types of events that are reported. · · · · Fire - Events issued by fire protection related devices such as pull-stations, smoke detectors, and sprinkler systems. PreAlarm - Events that indicate that a point is close to declaring an alarm, giving the facility manager opportunity to address the problem before an emergency develops. Security - Events issued by security related devices such as motion detectors, glass break detectors, and door contacts. Supervisory - Alarms that are special alarms to indicate action that has functionally disabled a key device (for either fire protection or security). An example of this is the event generated if the water valve is shut off for a sprinkler system. Troubles - Events that indicate a functional problem with a device on the network. Examples of trouble events include a device or Workstation going off-line, a battery low or no power event, a dirty head on a smoke detector, etc. Advise - A condition that is an administrative event, internal to the ONYXWorksTM system. This is not a life-safety or security event, but an internal warning of a condition that may need someone's attention--such as the history file reaching 100,000 entries. Disabled - Indicates all disabled points on the system.

What Happens When New Events are Acknowledged

When a paired event is acknowledged at the Workstation the following occurs: · Fire Control Center Mode: In the New Events window, the acknowledged event moves to the list in the Acknowledged Events window. If and when a new event is acknowledged at the FACP, the FACP acknowledged event will automatically move from list to list at the Workstation. · · · Supervisor Station Mode: In the New Events window, the acknowledged event moves to the list in the Acknowledged Events window. On the Workstation floorplan area, the point icon will stop flashing but remain in its appropriate off-normal priority color. The sound indicating the new event will stop playing, but only if there are no other new events in the New Events box. Sound continues to be emitted until all events in the New Events box have been acknowledged at the Workstation.

`

NOTE: If an event is acknowledged at a FACP and the Workstation is in Activate Graphics Mode as a Supervising Station, the event will remain in the New Events window but the status field of that event will turn from white to gray indicating an acknowledgement at the FACP. The event will still need to be acknowledged at the Workstation. Once acknowledged at the Workstation the acknowledged event will move from the New Events window to the Acknowledged Events window and remain there until it returns to normal. The status field will still be gray.

When the event returns to normal the following occurs on the Workstation. · · · · · · · Fire Control Mode only: In the New Events window, The off normal event vanishes from the list. Supervisor Station Mode: In the New Events window, the return to normal event remains in the list. In the Workstation floorplan area, the point icon returns to its normal condition color. In the Alarm Summary window, the Alarm Counter list will decrement. The corresponding Alarm Summary Icon returns to its normal condition color, provided there are no other off-normal events of that type on the system. In the Navigation Tree, the adjacent colored box will vanish, provided there are no other offnormal conditions on those Workstation floorplan areas. The sound should not sounding from the Workstation. If a sound still being emitted then more events are present in the system.

C.2.3 Managing Events

An event is defined as any change in the status of a device or a transfer of information between a device and the Workstation or between two devices. Some of these events are considered background and housekeeping events and are not seen by you on the Workstation's display. Those background and housekeeping events can be viewed with the View >Background Activation command. The View >Armed/Disarmed Points command may be used to view events also. The events that are of primary concern to you are off-normal events. An off-normal event indicates activity or change that requires your attention and/or response. Refer to Appendix B, "Details about Event Data", on page 121 for information about events.

About New Events Priority Rating

In the New Events window, new events are listed according to the date and time that they occurred and they are further defined by the highest to lowest priority of the event. For example: · · A" fire alarm event" with the same time and date as a "trouble event" will display higher in the list. A "fire alarm event" with the more recent date and time will be listed above a "fire alarm event" with older date and time. A change in condition or activation of a monitoring device (Motion Detectors, Smoke Alarms, etc.). A door is ajar. A node becomes disconnected from the network. A Monitoring device is disconnected from its monitoring node. Single Off-Normal Events A single event that, once it is received, leaves the sending device in the same condition that it was in originally. Single events do not represent a lasting change of condition. A single event is removed from the Acknowledged Events list after it is acknowledged. Paired Off-Normal Events If a single event is paired with another event, one event can move to the Acknowledged Events list after it is acknowledged, but it remains in the Acknowledged Events list until its paired event is acknowledged. Once an acknowledge to the related pair events is performed, both events are removed from New Events and added to the Acknowledged Events list. Fire alarms actually latch a FACP and required that the panel be reset a reset. Therefore, alarm states will remain in the New Event list until the fire alarm control panel (FACP) associated with the alarm states is reset. Alarm-off states that have been acknowledged will clear once the panel is reset and all the panel's devices have returned to a normal condition.
