The FPA-1000, FAP-1000-UL and FPA-1000-V2 all have the option to use 2 FPE-1000-SLC Loop cards. Each loop card on panel with Firmware less then 1.09 only support address 1 to 127 on each loop card, from firmware 1.10 and higher each loop card supports address 1 to 254. So it is possible to have to devices with the same address but on different loop cards. The the panel the keypad will display the following on the top line. The Event Type (Trouble, Fire, Supervisory) follow by XX-Y-AAA.A, (XX = Panel ID) (Y = Address Assignment, 0 - Web Page, 1 - SLC1, 2 - SLC2, Mainboard, or 4 - Option Bus) Followed (AAA.A The Device Address) .

The FPC-500 Series Smokes are 4 -Wire technology, but if using more than one FCA-500 on the same loop it is a 6 wire configuration: 2 wires for power, 2 wires for the trouble loop, 2 wires for the alarm loop, and the last base on the loop needs to be a FCA-500-E (End of Line Base). If using only one smoke or installing them on and addressable loop the FCA-500-E base is required. The wiring configuration is, 2 wires for power and 2 wires for the alarm loop. Then for the trouble circuit you wire a jumper from terminal (T1) to terminal (b1/b2). Note: The last base on each loop of flush mount smoke detectors must be a FCA-500-E - Wiring is 4 conductor from the panel to the first head and 6 wires between the first base in the loop to the FCA-500-E base at the end of the loop.

The power card contains two jumpers located below the tamper switch:
Tamper jumper: Enables or disables the housing cover tamper switch.
Reset jumper: Enables or disables the remote keyswitch reset function. The power off reset functions normally regardless of the jumper setting.
Jumper Location Jumper Setting. Cover both pins to Disable, remove jumper (store on 1 pin) to Enable.
The D341/D342 duct detector will not reset when using D344-RT Remote Test Kit. Turning the key to Test puts the detector in the alarm condition but turning to Reset does not return the detector to normal condition.
The Reset Jumper on the power card inside the D341/D342 has not been removed to enable the Remote Keyswitch Reset function. Remove the jumper below the tamper switch, on the right side.

TEST/RESET SWITCH The switch on the front of the D380, CM-15/15A labeled “PUSH HERE TO TEST OR RESET” performs three functions. 1.) During normal operation, a short press of the switch (less than 5 seconds long) will place the unit into self-test mode with no alarm relay activation. The status light will turn red for 5 seconds, and then it will alternate slowly between green and amber while the self-test executes. The controlling software simulates a 3000 ppm CO environment and causes the unit to alarm after approximately one minute has elapsed. When this happens, the status light turns red, and the CM-15A buzzer will sound two complete alarm cycles. The unit will then return to normal operation. 2.) During normal operation, a long press of the switch (about 6 seconds long) will place the unit into self-test mode with alarm relay activation. Pressing and holding the switch will cause the status light to turn red for 5 seconds and then switch to solid amber. The alarm relay will then be activated, and the switch can be released. After about 5 seconds, the alarm relay will turn off, and the status light will alternate slowly between green and amber while the self test executes. The controlling software simulates a 3000 ppm CO environment and causes the unit to alarm after approximately one minute has elapsed. When this happens, the status light turns red, and the CM-15A buzzer will sound two complete alarm cycles. The unit will then return to normal operation. 3.) If the CM-15/15A is in an alarm condition due to the detection of carbon monoxide, one push of the switch will cause the alarm buzzer to mute, and the alarm relay to open for five minutes. After the five-minute period, if CO is still present, the status light will again switch to red, the alarm relay will close, and the CM-15A buzzer will sound. TROUBLE SIGNAL The Trouble signal is determined by the configuration of the alarm panel. The CM-15/15A Trouble Relay provides an open circuit for actuation of the control panel circuits. The status LED will flash amber, and the CM-15A buzzer will emit a short “chirp” every 30 to 60 seconds (refer to ERRORS below). Various parameters are continuously monitored by the CM-15/15A computer and will open the Trouble Relay when such a condition occurs. Failure of the CM-15/15A internal power supply or a lack of power to the detector will result in the Trouble Relay opening, and the status light will be OFF (not illuminated). The most common trouble would be a break in the wiring between the control panel and the CM-15/15A. ERRORS The computer in the CM-15/15A continuously monitors various operating parameters. If a problem is found, the unit will switch to Trouble mode (refer to TROUBLE SIGNAL above). To reset the unit for normal operation, turn off the power to the unit, wait a few seconds, and then turn the power back on. If this problem persists, your detector requires repair; contact the alarm panel installer or Macurco Tech Support for advice. If repair is required, return the unit to the manufacturer to comply with warranty. MAINTENANCE The CM-15/15A should be tested monthly by pushing the TEST/RESET switch (refer to TEST/RESET switch above). At the same time, the CM-15/15A should be cleaned using the soft brush attachment of your vacuum cleaner. The CM-15/15A should be tested after cleaning to ensure the unit is operating normally. There are no field calibration procedures for this unit. SENSOR POISONS The gas sensor in the detector is designed with extreme sensitivity to the environment. As a result, the CO sensor may be damaged if it is exposed to a direct spray from aerosols such as paints, silicone vapors, etc., or to a high density of corrosive gases such as hydrogen sulfide or sulfur dioxide for an extended period of time. The sensor may react to chemicals such as ammoniated cleaning agents, volatile solvents, and hydrogen gas. In sufficient concentration, these chemicals may cause a false alarm.

NOTE: Installation Considerations - Use the duct detector housing in HVAC systems with air velocities from 300 ft/min to 4000 ft/ min (1.5 m/s to 20.3 m/s)) and in ducts ranging from 1 ft to 10 ft (0.3 m to 3 m) in diameter. Due to the 10-second time limitation, a maximum of four FAD-325-R Duct relays can be activated by a single zone. If more than four FAD-325-R or FAD-325-V2F-R (DUCT Housing with Relay) are needed, assign to separate zones. If using global shut-down, consider using the FAD-325 or FAD-325-V2F (DUCT Housing without Relay) instead with a separate relay module such as one from the FLM-325-2R4 Family. The Relay of the Analog DUCT Detector does not automatically follow the smoke head of the DUCT. The relay of the DUCT needs to be assigned an output zone as the DUCT Smoke Head. Both the Smoke Head and the DUCT Relay can be asigned up to 5 output zones.
