Smoke control installed in accordance with Measure: Trouble signal on the voice communication system results in common trouble signal on the fire alarm system.

J Correct electrolyte level. Powered independently of ulv fire alarm control, these devices are normally not connected to it.

Common visual trouble signal operates. It’s also prone to false alarms when installed close to bathrooms or kitchens with older style dishwashers.

Circuit Disconnect Means Location: Engine hour clock reading: F Confirm that the alarm transmission to the fire signal receiving centre is received. Reduced pressure assembly valves inspected for leaks or corrosion? Ionization type smoke detectors utilize a small source of radioactive material usually Americium that in fact ionizes airborne particulates and attracts them to to one side or the other of a polarized grid.


If housing discolouration is noted, attempt to identify the source and note the date of manufacture.

Status change jlc inspected and tested. Fuel levels and a low fuel trouble indication the low fuel alarm set point should be checked to ensure the unit is able ullc deliver emergency power for the duration required by the Building Code for the type of occupancy; In-suite signals if equipped with a silence feature must be checked for proper operation of the silence function including resounding if signals are silenced and a second alarm zone is activated ; Duct mounted smoke detectors must be individually tested and some rather detailed results recorded namely the differential pressure and the sensitivity reading on the Individual Device Test Record ; Stand-alone capabilities of networked systems must be tested and properly documented; Sprinkler system interconnection isolation valve supervisory signals, flow switch alarm, tamper, low temperature, heat trace controller trouble and cqn, low air, etc.


Electrolyte level in batteries is normal Tighten electrical connection as required? The function of the various relays correlated to these devices must, however, be individually recorded. Check-valves internally inspected and all parts operate properly, move freely, and are in good condition?

Manual klc devices passed test?

Annual Tests Control valves shall be operated through its full range and returned to normal. Refer to Appendix Cqn ; P iii Silent accelerated test. Individual alarm and supervisory zone indication operates. Clean Cloudy Dirty Inspect duct work for combustion air? The montly test is to ensure that all audible and visual alarm indicators function properly and are loud or visible enough to alert all the occupants to a fire condition.

Alarm signal silence visual indication operates Alarm signal and visible signal devices, when silenced, automatically reinitiate upon O subsequent alarm. While in standby mode, voice communication busses used for s5536, alert signal, alarm signal, and emergency telephone communication circuits, an Q open circuit fault, or short circuit fault, or operation of an overcurrent protective device provided for the purpose, shall result in a specific trouble indication specific to the faulty buss.


Output circuits for selective voice paging, including visual indication, F operates.

This type of detector works best for fast flaming fires that produce small amounts of smoke. Extinguishment, Deluge, and Sprinkler Systems.

Annual Testing – The Annual Test of the fire alarm system is performed by qualified technical personnel to a specific National Standard. Diesel Natural Gas Other: Yes No Time for motor to accelerate to full speed: It might be a good idea to suggest that they practice their individual escape plans during the test as well. Photoelectric type smoke detectors utilize an infrared light source called the emitter and a receiver, both of which are located inside the sensing chamber.

Plug-in components and modules securely in place.
