  1. The evac key is set in the options menu and the zone is whatever the panel has been set at
  2. Cmin=1.25(T1xI1+T2xI2x1.75) which is the calculation in BS 5839-6:2019 which is easier in my view as I hate doing division. the T2 is 0.5 which is the same as dividing by 2 . T1 = 24hours l1 = quiescent load T2 = 30 minutes in alarm l2 = alarm load 1.75 = derating factor
  3. d) MCPs should be located on escape routes and, in particular, at all storey exits and all exits to open air that lead to an ultimate place of safety (whether or not the exits are specifically designated as fire exits). Those located at storey exits may be sited within the accommodation or on the landing of a stairway to which the storey exit gives access (see Figure 6). In multi-storey buildings with phased evacuation, in which only a limited number of floors are evacuated at one time, only the former option applies; under these circumstances, MCPs should not be located on stairway landings, as persons travelling down the stairway might operate an MCP several floors below that on which a fire is located, resulting in evacuation of inappropriate areas. e) Distribution of MCPs should be such that no one need travel more than 45 m [except where 20.2f) applies] to reach the nearest MCP, measured along the route that a person would actually follow taking into account the layout of walls, partitions and fittings. If, at the design stage, the final layout of the premises is unknown, the maximum straight line distance between any point in the building and the nearest MCP should not exceed 30 m [except where 20.2f) applies]; after final fit out of the premises, the limit of 45 m should still then apply. NOTE 4 These distances are arbitrary, but reflect the maximum acceptable distances between any point and the nearest storey exit commonly applied to many premises. f) The figures of 45 m and 30 m recommended in e) should be reduced to 25 m and 16 m, respectively, in the following circumstances:
  4. 5.1.3 Category L systems Category L systems are automatic fire detection and fire alarm systems intended for the protection of life. They are further subdivided into: a) Category L1: systems installed throughout all areas of the building. The objective of a Category L1 system is to offer the earliest possible warning of fire, so as to achieve the longest available time for escape; b) Category L2: systems installed only in defined parts of the building. A Category L2 system ought to include the coverage necessary to satisfy the recommendations of this standard for a Category L3 system; the objective of a Category L2 system is identical to that of a Category L3 system, with the additional objective of affording early warning of fire in specified areas of high fire hazard level and/ or high fire risk; c) Category L3: systems designed to give a warning of fire at an early enough stage to enable all occupants, other than possibly those in the room of fire origin, to escape safely, before the escape routes are impassable owing to the presence of fire, smoke or toxic gases; NOTE 1 To achieve the above objective it is normally necessary to install detectors in rooms which open onto an escape route (see 8.2). d) Category L4: systems installed within those parts of the escape routes comprising circulation areas and circulation spaces, such as corridors and stairways
  5. Just seen this post not been here for a while sounds like water ingression has caused corruption if you have a download then wipe the system re-upload
  6. Anyone know how to default the engineer code. The original engineer that set it up changed the engineer level code and he has now retired so no-one can change the code
  7. A MIRACULOUS SAVE. Woman saves herself in Crocodile attack using a small Walking Stick. This is a story of self-control and marksmanship by a brave, cool-headed woman with a walking stick against a fierce predator. Here is her story in her own words: "While out walking along the edge of a creek just outside of our house in Darwin, with my soon to be ex-husband discussing our property settlement, Kids and other divorce issues, we were surprised by a huge 5 metre. Crocodile which suddenly emerged from the murky water and began charging at us very fast with its large jaws wide open. The Croc must have been protecting her young and her home because she was extremely aggressive. If I had not had my little £5. Reject shop walking stick with me, I would not be here today! Just one Hard Wack to my estranged husband's knee cap was all it took....The' Croc got him easily and I was able to escape by just walking away at a brisk pace. The amount I saved in lawyer's fees was really incredible and I got the lot. ps:- I luv that Croc
  8. Yes as others have been saying but some customers do ask for LPCB1014 so you could lose one or two that way
  9. As everyone else is saying fit any card with the panel powered down
  10. The door is shut lol Mr Happy I will have to carry on and post them here lol
