INSTALLATION & OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS

Thoroughly read and understand these Instructions, they provide detailed information on various applications. Copies are available from Offside Technologies Corp. These instructions are provided to ensure compliance with the Installation Requirements of NFPA-72 (National Fire Alarm Code), NFPA 70 (for US) and CSA C22.1, Canadian Electrical Code, Part 1, Safety Standard for Electrical Installations, Section 32- (for Canada), CAN/ULC-S524 (Standard for Installation of Fire Alarm Systems).  The Offside Technologies SM-001 is intended for permanent installation and can be used in lieu of any standard Fire Alarm System End-of-Line (EOL) device resistor plate. Or as an add on to: ISOLATOR DCL SLC / IN-SUITE SOUNDER / FIX TEMPERATURE HEAT / MONITORING MODULE / CONTROL UNIT (CU) / TRANSPONDER (T) /  ANNUNCIATORS / for ease of their respective testing requirements, that would otherwise require you to remove said device or wires from their respective backbox and/or terminal blocks for testing the wiring connected to said device.  A copy of these instructions should be left with the Building Fire Alarm System Verification Report.

The Offside Technologies SM-001 is compatible with most UL/ULC Listed Fire Alarm Control Panels, that do not exceed the ratings listed below.
In actual field testing it usually takes around 5 seconds or less to complete each test depending on the brand of Listed Fire Alarm System being used.
Terminals: R- R+ G – + are to be connected to Power-Limited circuits only.

IMPORTANT CAUTIONS

CANADIAN & USA APPLICATIONS:

An electrical backbox is required to be properly bonded to ground. Attach a ground wire to the designated ground terminal “G” and to the backbox for proper operation, where a ground condition is required. Follow published manufacture instructions for installed equipment for any extra requirements they have and the testing and maintenance instructions stipulated in CAN/ULC-S536 or NFPA 72 for USA, to ensure the proper utilization of the Offside Technologies SM-001. The Offside Technologies SM-001 is set for testing Positive Ground from the factory. If your codes require a Negative Ground as well as a Positive Ground for the same device e.g. CAN/ULC-S536-13, Section 6.2.2 “Control Unit or Transponder Tests” or if you want to achieve a Negative Ground only, you have three options;

(options 1) Use a test wire, not supplied:  From the front side of the mounting plate via the voltage/resistor measuring points while at “N” normal position, touch one end of the wire to the voltage point and the other end to either mounting screw.  Ensure non-painted mounting plate screws connect to the metal electrical box. This will ensure a ground reading can be achieved.

(options 2) Reverse connecting wires from + to for both voltage in and resistor out. This will put the power through the switch first. Allowing you to use the switch for testing Ground. The switch will provide same ratings in either + or configuration.

(options 3) Install two Offside Technologies SM-001 and connect one as normal and the other as option 2, reversing all wires.

RESISTOR , VOLTAGE & LOOP RESISTANCE MEASUREMENT

For testing the RESISTOR connected to the Offside Technologies SM-001 turn the switch to “O” open condition and insert your multi-meter set on (ohms) into the voltage/resistor measuring points on the front of the plate. You can now verify the resistor installed.

       For testing the VOLTAGE connected to the Offside Technologies SM-001 turn the switch to “N” and insert your multi-meter set on (Volts DC) into the voltage/resistor measuring points on the front of the plate. You can now verify the voltage.

      For testing the Loop Resistance; connect one SM-001 at the end of the wire loop, turn the switch to “S” and then use your multi-meter set on (ohms) at the beginning of the wire loop. Caution: You must remove power from the wire loop before you can verify the Loop Resistance. If you install a second SM-001 at the beginning, you can turn it to “O” and then insert probes into the measuring points and get your resistance reading. Figure D. Otherwise you need to remove wires from the control unit/transponder.

The device needs to be mounted onto a common single gang electrical box or adapter plate that is in accordance with the applicable Installation Standard, National Electrical Code, Electrical Code (both USA and Canada) and in accordance with the local authority having jurisdiction. Suitable for indoor dry locations only.

See addendums for other applications

You may need to consult the AHJ to get approval for ADDENDUM applications, until the codes are updated to allow for alternative testing methods

The EVS is a UL & ULC listed device, some applications may require additional approval from AHJ. Existing codes were written with the technologies available at that time, they do not consider new and improved technologies. The AHJ is there to help all of us, improve fire protection. As in the Ontario Fire Code Part of the AHJ responsibilities are “to co-operate with any body or person interested in developing and promoting the principles and practices of fire protection services” and “to provide programs to improve practices relating to fire protection services.” All other Provinces or States most likely have a similar philosophy regarding improving fire protection.

The EVS is a vast improvement in various testing applications and as such we feel it is a better testing method than what is currently being done.

Drawings are TYPICAL they do not include every application. Prior to installing EVS, consult local fire codes as codes may vary from Province to Province or State to State.

FIX TEMPERATURE NON-RESTORABLE HEAT DETECTOR (FT) & SPRINKLER MONITORING SWITCHES (FS, LP, HP, SV,…) INSTALLATION AND WIRING TEST

This test only tests the wiring to a (FT) heat detector & Sprinkler monitoring switches. It does not test the actual heat detector or the mechanical part of the sprinkler monitoring switch itself. If the heat detector can be tested with a heat source without permanently damaging the detector, a heat source should be used to test the detector. Or if the Sprinkler Flow (FW) Low Pressure (LP) High Pressure (HP) Supervisory (SV) switch(s) the switches still need to be tested mechanically by a trained sprinkler technician during their inspection.

Addendum 001
To test a mechanical fixed non-restorable heat detector (FT), remove one positive and one negative wire from the detector on the power OUT, side of the detector. Connect those wires to the R+ & R- on the SM-001. Then connect a new wire going from the + of the SM-001 to the detector positive side. Then connect a new wire going from the – of the SM-001 to the detector negative side. The “G” terminal is not used for this test, but a ground wire still needs to be used from the detector backbox to the SM-001 backbox. Install the SM-001 at one of three locations: 1) beside the detector being tested and orientated so the testing key can be put on a key testing pole (sold separately) and access the SM-001 from VERTICALLY UNDERNEATH (NO OBSTRUCTIONS)

NOTE 10: the test key does not work on angle entry into the switch. 2) If you cannot access the detector directly from underneath, then you will have to move the SM-001 to a location that you can access it, from directly underneath.

Note 11: You will need to label the detector being tested with the same label put on or beside the SM-001 being used for testing that detector. 3) Install the SM-001 at no more than 1800mm from floor to give the best access point. You still must label the detector and the SM-001 so technicians know what the SM-001 is testing.

Note 12: If no label, then the SM-001 must be traced out to verify what it is testing and then relabel both devices. See example of label above. If this device is at the end of line then you can use the end of line as the test for the FT heat as well as the standard end of line. Label that it is doing both tests. For sprinkler switches follow the same steps in Addendum 001. Only trained sprinkler technicians are allowed to operate the sprinkler system. When installed correctly this will allow you to test the wiring integrity of the sprinkler monitoring switch(s).

To Test: Turn the test key straight to the “S” position to introduce a Short/Alarm condition. Return test key to “N” and remove test key. Test complete.

SLC INPUT MONITORING MODULE INSTALLATION AND WIRING TESTING (MM)

Addendum 002

Connect the + & wires coming from the Control Panel, to the SM-001 + & – . Then connect the R+ & R- of the SM-001 to the + &  IN of the MM. Then connect the desired devices to the + & – OUT of the MM. The G terminal is not used for this test, but a ground wire still needs to be used from backbox to backbox. You can now test the control panel’s ability to monitor the MM and all devices connected to it. To TEST: turn the key switch from “N” to “O”, the panel should show loss of communication to the MM address. Return the SM-001 to the “N” position. Test is complete. Note13: The last device connected to the MM has an EOL, install it in another SM-001 as per Figure A above.  Note 14: You will need to label what the SM-001 is testing. Put the same label on or beside the SM-001 and what is being tested. See Drawing #004 above. 

CONTROL UNIT / TRANSPONDERS / PRINTERS / ANNUNCIATOR / ALARM MONITORING / INSTALLATION AND TESTING

Addendum 003

All terminal screws and soldered terminal blocks over time wear out from use and when this happens you will have to replace the entire component. This could be the main mother board of the Control Board. To prevent this unnecessary wear from removing wires and terminal blocks: 1) Remove the wire to be tested and connect it to the R+ of the SM-001 add a new wire from the + of the SM-001 to what you just disconnected. Figure 003-1 This will turn the SM-001 into a wire break switch and you will never have to remove that wire again for testing. SPECIAL NOTE 15: Alarm monitoring of: Alarm; Trouble; Supervisory Contacts. Connect the SM-001 as shown in Figure 003-1 Drawing #006. Before turning to the “O” position, send signals to the monitoring station for each switch to confirm they are receiving signals. Once confirmed they have received the signals, turn the SM-001 to “O” this will bypass the monitoring. Once all your testing is done with the various devices return the key back to “N” normal position and remove the key. Then send one signal to the monitoring station for each monitoring contact to confirm the monitoring station is still receiving signals. Record the time they received the last signals.

Note 16: You may need to set up more than one SM-001 depending on the number of wires you are required to disconnect as per Code.
Note 17: Connect the Ground wire to G only when you want a ground condition as well.
Note 18: Connect the – wire only when you want + & – conditions, from the same source. See Figure 003-2
Note 19: For – Ground Conditions reverse the + & – so the SM-001 gives you a – Ground instead of a + Ground. You cannot get a + & a – Ground from one SM-001. There is a + & – probe on the faceplate that will allow + or – Ground, but it cannot be done by one key only.
Note 20: Label each SM-001 as to what it is doing. ( i.e.: Input wiring/circuit fault; monitoring circuit fault & – Ground; and or Output wiring circuit fault & + Ground)
To TEST: Simply turn the key from “N” to “O” to achieve the open condition test. Turn to “G” to get a positive ground test condition. Use option 2 or option 3 above to get your negative ground test condition. Turn the key switch to “S” if you need a short condition. Return the SM-001 to the “N” position, to return to a normal condition & remove test key.
NOTE 21: If the key is left in any SM-001 you can assume the system is not back to the normal state. All test keys MUST be removed upon completion of test for the system to be considered back to normal state.

ADDENDUM 004

CAUTION: Maximum switching current is 350mA. Please ensure the load calculation for the number of active (or supporting) field devices connected to each Offside Technologies SM-001 does not exceed 350mA. For installations where current (including short circuit current) exceeds 350mA, you may not be able to utilize the Offside Technologies SM-001 testing solution.

 

TYPICAL KITCHEN SUPPRESION CONNECTION DIAGRAM (With new 4 wire microswitch) DIAGRAM ALSO USED FOR SUPERVISED FIRE MONITORING CONTACTS

Note 21: If you want to use the SM-001 as a By-pass or test for when maintenance is being done on the Kitchen Suppression System or Fire Alarm Monitoring Contacts then you will need to install two SM-001 as per DRAWING #009
Follow the instructions.

Note 22: Joint annual inspection of suppression micro switch.
The suppression technician can turn the SM-001 #1 to the “O” position. This will put the Fire Panel in trouble only. Then the suppression technician can insert a multi-meter and when put on (ohms) can then activate the microswitch and confirm that the meter went to 0.00 confirming that the micro switch works. The technician marks on an inspection tag confirming that the microswitch went to 0.00. Then the Fire Alarm Technician completes the test of the SM-001 #2 during the annual test of the EOL.

Note 23: The Suppression technician will have to be shown by the fire alarm technician how the SM-001 work as a by-pass and how to get the )ohms) reading. If the suppression technician does not show they can correctly work a multi-meter, then joint coordination of the suppression and fire alarm test will have to be done at the same time.

TYPICAL KITCHEN SUPPRESION CONNECTION DIAGRAM (With old style 2 wire microswitch) (Not to be used for monitoring by-pass)

Note 24: If you want to use the SM-001 as a By-pass for when maintenance is being done on the kitchen suppression system then you will need to install one SM-001 as per DRAWING #010
Follow the instructions.

Note 25: Joint annual inspection of suppression micro switch. The suppression technician can turn the SM-001 to the “O” position. This will put the Fire Panel in trouble only. Then the suppression technician can insert a multi-meter and when put on (ohms) can then activate the microswitch and confirm that the meter went to 0.00 confirming that the micro switch works. The technician marks on an inspection tag confirming that the microswitch went to 0.00. Then the Fire Alarm Technician completes the test during the annual test of the EOL.

Note 23: The Suppression technician will have to be shown by the fire alarm technician how the SM-001 work as a by-pass and how to get the (ohms) reading. If the suppression technician does not show that they can correctly work a multi meter, then joint coronation of the suppression and fire alarm test will have to be done at the same time.

FIX TEMPERATURE NON-RESTORABLE HEAT DETECTOR (FT) INSTALLATION AND WIRING TEST (AS A JUMPER WIRE)

ADDENDUM 005

This test only tests the wiring to a (FT) heat detector. And does not test the actual heat detector itself. If the heat detector can be tested with a heat source without parentally damaging the detector, a heat source should be used to test the detector.

 

In ADDENDUM 005: To test a mechanical fixed non-restorable heat detector (FT), add one positive (JUMPER WIRE) and one negative (JUMPER WIRE) from the detector on the power IN, side of the detector. Connect those wires to the + & – on the SM-001. The “G” terminal is not used for this test, but a ground wire still needs to be used from the detector backbox to the SM-001 backbox.

In this configuration you have created a very long jumper wire depending on how far you install the SM-001 away from the FT. No wire resistance will be added to your loop for locations that are or are approaching the max allowed loop resistance for the zone you are working on. The test asks you to short the detector. So, there is very little difference if you short right at the detector or if you make your shorting wire long. The results are the same. You will need to get approval from your local AHJ as you are “T Tapping” but you are not adding any detection devices to the “T Tap” only the ability to test for short from a safe location.

Install the SM-001 at one of three locations: 1) beside the detector being tested and orientated so the testing key can be put on a key testing pole (sold separately) and access the SM-001 from VERTICALLY UNDERNEATH (NO OBSTRUCTIONS) NOTE 10: the test key does not work on angle entry into the switch. 2) If you cannot access the detector directly from underneath, then you will have to move the SM-001 to a location that you can access it, from directly underneath. Note 11: You will need to label the detector being tested with the same label put on or beside the SM-001 being used for testing that detector. 3) Install the SM-001 at no more than 1800mm from floor to give the best access point. You still must label the detector and the SM-001 so technicians know what the SM-001 is testing. Note 12: if no label then the SM-001 must be traced out to verify what it is testing and then relabel both devices. See example of label above. If this device is at the end of line, then you can use the end of line as the test for the FT heat as well as the standard end of line. Label that it is doing both tests.

To Test: Turn the test key straight to the “S” position to introduce a Short/Alarm condition. Return test key to “N” and remove test key. Test complete.
