This hold-on facility is most important as it ensures that the sounder is not interrupted if any attempt is made to return the activated call point to its original off position. Fire alarm systems are usually wired on an open circuit basis, with a two-wire system looped from one detector to the next, terminating across an end-of-line resistor (EOLR). This provides a 38 Wiring systems Figure 34 Block diagram for security alarm system Figure 35 Open circuit circuit cable monitoring facility; the EOLR is of sufficiently high value to prevent operation of the alarm.

The connection requirements are as shown in Figure 47. Figure 47 55 3 Testing and test instruments Measurement of electrical quantities As the reader will know, the basic electrical quantities which need to be measured in the world of the installation electrician are current, voltage and resistance. The units of these quantities are the ampere, the volt and the ohm, respectively. Paradoxically, however, the range and complexity of the instruments available to measure these three fundamental quantities are enormous.

All security and fire alarm systems should have battery back-up with charging facilities. Call systems Once again these fall into different categories, such as telephone systems and page and bleeper systems. However, the typical nursecall variety, which uses push buttons and lamp indication is probably the most popular. With this type, each room is equipped with a call button of some description, a patient’s reassurance light, and a cancel button. Outside each room is an indicator light, and at strategic points in the building are zone sounders.
