Fire alarm signals must be carried out through manual call points and heat/smoke detectors. The next action is to ring the buzzer on the Annunciator / MCP-FA. Related LED indicators on Fire Mimic Panel must be on and the location of the zone from the location of the equipment that occurred.

The alarm must appear on the LCD of MCP-FA in plain text. On
at the same time, all fire alarm bells in the building must
continuous ringing and all related regulatory functions such as
elevator homing, fan control and others must work as designed
and works automatically.

What is Sub Fire Alarm Control Panel?

The sub fire alarm control panel must be able to work stand alone
that under fault and alarm conditions, the SFA-CP will still be able to detect and identify the condition of the alarm. SFA-CP must be equipped with minimal features such as the following below:

  • AC main fower
  • Alarm condition
  • Trouble condition
  • Signal silence activated
