Re: Today's Job

I wanted to post this on here because this was a really cool system I worked on today! I am not exactly sure what the model on this panel is, But I believe this is a Mirtone 7900 series fire panel, with a Mirtone voice evacuation panel. This is basically the Mirtone version of an Edwards 6500 panel,...

Re: Smoke alarms go off in my condo complex

I've never seen a system with just smokes and pulls. Never knew they existed. How do the pulls trip the smoke alarms? BRK makes a interconnect module, so you can connect devices like pull stations or heat detectors up: https://www.aartech.ca/psm1/brk-interconnect-module-for-pull-stations-or-heat-de...

Will EST SIGA 278's work on a Kid FX-64 fire alarm control panel? Or do they need to specifically be Kidde devices to work with the panel?
It should be compatible, Kidde is owned by EST/Chubb Edwards.

Re: Smoke alarms go off in my condo complex

So your condo doesn't have actual alarms in it and just smoke alarms? Probably a smoke alarm/pull station system. I just serviced one in a renovated walkup building, they literally have combo smoke/strobe alarms everywhere, which are all interconnected together. Plus they had 2 pull stations on eac...

Re: Fire Alarm Panel/Bells

I'm guessing that must be in Canada since over here I don't really see houses with any signals in them. Yeah, but its mostly for houses that are used for assistant living/troubled youth. My favourite one is a system we service in a retirement/nursing home, which was an old mansion at one point. The...

Re: fire alarm at a Walmart playing music.

Personally, I think that we should have that same code and we shouldn't be able to play music through the speakers. I agree, the US is usually more advanced too and ahead of us when it comes to fire alarms and codes. I never understood why they allow this one, I think we don't do it because it woul...

Re: Simplex 4002 - No 24vdc

Sounds like the motherboard may be fried. I have an EST 6601 that was doing the same thing, and it was determined it had a faulty motherboard problem, we ended up replanting the panel.

Re: What are some things that the General Public misconceives about Fire Alarms that drive you crazy?

Then maybe the pull stations did have tamper dye on them but I remember the one outside the kindergarten classrooms was the only one that looked like it was leaking and that was the only one I remember. Of course, by the time I started to take more notice of fire alarms, we had a new principal so m...

Re: fire alarm at a Walmart playing music.

We aren't allowed to play music through fire alarm speakers in Canada by code, so all Walmarts here have separate PA & Fire Alarm systems.

Re: Fire Alarm Panel/Bells

That is super cool! I do a fair bit of imspections on systems like this. They are all in these old houses that were built in the early 1900s. They all have EST 1 zone fireshields in them, but I assume the original panels were really old. Most have their original signals, the one house had 1 Edwards ...

Re: My Middle school’s old fire alarm system

The middle school I attended was built in 1980 with an old Edwards system. The old system consisted of Edwards 270-spo pull sustains and Edwards 439d-6awc bells installed in hallways. The system was replaced in 2005, so this info may not be correct, however I have confirmed that the pulls were 270-...

Did the Edwards 6500 FACP fail miserably like or similarly as bad as one of the FACPs on one of twoplyboy's videos? (IIRC)
Similar. That 6500 wasn't able to reset after an alarm anymore, you would have to power the entire panel down to clear it.

Re: Smoke Dampers

Do you mean Dampers for like vents in hallways? If so, those are non electrical, they use fusible links to hold a screen or flaps, which close when the links melt.
