independent of the manufacturer.
2.2. CONDUIT AND WIRE:
1. Conduit shall be in accordance with The National Electrical Code (NEC), local
and state requirements.
2. Where required, all wiring shall be installed in conduit or raceway. Conduit fill
shall not exceed 40 percent of interior cross sectional area where three or more
cables are contained within a single conduit.
3. Cable must be separated from any open conductors of power, or Class 1 circuits,
and shall not be placed in any conduit, junction box or raceway containing these
conductors, per NEC.
4. Conduit shall not enter the fire alarm control panel, or any other remotely
mounted control panel equipment or backboxes, except where conduit entry is
specified by the Fire Alarm Control Panel manufacturer.
Conduit shall be 3/4 inch (19.1 mm) minimum.
1. All IPGSM-4G Communicator wiring shall be new.
2. Wiring shall be in accordance with local, state and national codes (e.g., NEC
Article 760) and as recommended by the manufacturer of the IPGSM-4G
3. All wire and cable shall be listed and/or approved by a recognized testing agency
for use with a protective signaling system.
4. Wire and cable not installed in conduit shall have a fire resistance rating suitable
for the installation as indicated in NEC 760 (e.g., FPLR).
5. All field wiring (with exception of external communications Ethernet) shall be
electrically supervised for open circuit and ground fault.
C. Terminal Boxes, Junction Boxes and Cabinets:
All boxes and cabinets shall be UL listed for their use and purpose.
2.3. IPGSM-4G COMMUNICATOR:
The Communicator shall be a Fire-Lite Alarms Model IPGSM-4G. Central station supervisory equipment shall be a Honeywell’s
AlarmNet Network Control Center listed to UL-864 standards.
IPGSM-4G Communicator is connected to any Fire Alarm Control Panel DACT telephone ports, the system shall be capable of transmitting Contact ID formatted alarms, supervisory or troubles to a Honeywell’s AlarmNet Network Control Center equipped with a Honeywell AlarmNet receiver via Ethernet over a private or public WAN/LAN, Intranet or Ethernet.
C. System Capacity and General Operation
The IPGSM-4G Communicator shall include connections to the Fire Alarm Control Panel’s phone outputs and shall convert the contact ID protocol into Ethernet
2. The IPGSM-4G Communicator shall be completely field-programmable locally
from a 7720P Programming Tool.
3. The IPGSM-4G Communicator shall be capable of transmitting events in contact
4. Communication shall include vital system status such as:
- Independent Zone (Alarm, trouble, non-alarm, supervisory)
- Independent Addressable Device Status
- AC (Mains) Power Loss
- Low Battery and Earth Fault
- System Off Normal
- 24 Hour Test Signal
- Abnormal Test Signal (per UL requirements)
The IPGSM-4G Communicator shall support independent zone reporting
via the Contact ID format. This format shall enable the central station to have details concerning the location of the fire for emergency response. The IPGSM-4G Communicator shall be capable of providing simulated phone lines to the Fire Alarm Control Panel. The IPGSM-4G Communicator shall communicate over IP or GSM primary and shall be transparent to the Fire Alarm Control Panel normal operation over phone lines.
6. The supervising station shall consist of a Honeywell’s AlarmNet Network
Control Center receiver.
The IPGSM-4G Communicator shall be housed in a UL-listed cabinet.
The back box and door shall be constructed of steel with provisions for
electrical conduit connections into the sides and top.
E. Power Supply:
The main power supply shall operate on 120 VAC, 60 Hz, 0.50Amp and shall
provide all necessary power for the IPGSM-4G Communicator.
2. Positive-Temperature-Coefficient (PTC) thermistors, circuit breakers, or other
over-current protection shall be provided on all power outputs. The power
supply shall provide an integral battery charger. Battery arrangement may be
configured in the field.
3. The main power supply shall continuously monitor all field wires for earth
Upon loss of Primary (AC) power to the IPGSM-4G Communicator, the battery
shall have sufficient capacity to power the IPGSM-4G Communicator for required
standby time (24 hours) followed by 5 minutes of alarm.
B. The battery is to be completely maintenance free. No liquids are required. Fluid
level checks for refilling, spills, and leakage shall not be required.
