Supervision and Monitoring
The M5 includes supervision and monitoring compliant with the requirements of NFPA1225, 1221, 72, IFC, and UL2524. Fire Alarm Monitoring Modules connect directly to the provided normally open relay output “dry contacts” with built-in EOL resistors: AC Power, BDA Trouble, Charger Trouble, Battery Low, Antenna Trouble, System Component Trouble, Oscillation Detected, and a programmable Auxiliary port that can be programmed for different functions, including the enclosure door / tamper alarm. The Standby switch terminal is available in case the AHJ requires BDAs to remain in standby mode and to be activated only when needed. When in STBY mode, the BDA is still fully supervised and batteries are still being charged. Also, important to mention is that In addition to supervising the Donor Antenna, M5 can supervise the DAS Riser.
Dedicated Annunciator Panel
The M5 series offers two Dedicated Annunciator Panel options: the Standard Version and the Enhanced Version. Both versions are code-compliant and fully supervised. They are very simple to install on a standard two-gang / four-gang electrical box and connect to the BDA with a standard four-wire twisted pair fire alarm cable. No external power supply, no configuration, or programming is required – just connect the four wires. The Enhanced Version adds an audible alert and a “lamp test” function which is required in some jurisdictions.
