Maintenance
Fire alarm system maintenance
Perform the following maintenance tasks to ensure that your fire alarm system works
correctly and complies with all required European regulations.
Caution: Before performing any tests, ensure that fire routing (if configured) is
disabled or that the fire brigade has been notified.
Daily maintenance
Check that the control panel is in standby. If it is not, investigate all system events
and/or contact your installation or maintenance contractor to fix any reported faults.
Weekly maintenance
Activate an alarm from at least one detector or manual call point in your fire alarm
system and verify that the control panel responds correctly to the alarm. If it does
not, investigate all system events and/or contact your installation or maintenance
contractor to fix any reported faults.
Caution: Perform this test from a different detector or manual call point each time.
Quarterly maintenance
Contact your installation or maintenance contractor to carry out a quarterly
inspection of the fire alarm system.
This inspection must test at least one device per zone and verify that the control
panel responds to all fault and alarm events. The control panel power supply and
battery voltage should be checked. Batteries with low voltage must be replaced (for
more information see Battery maintenance on page 18).
Annual maintenance
Contact your installation or maintenance contractor to carry out an annual
inspection of the fire alarm system.
This inspection must test all system devices and verify that the control panel
responds to all fault and alarm events. All electrical connections must be visually
inspected to make sure that they are securely fastened, that they have not been
damaged, and that they are appropriately protected.
Cleaning
Keep the outside and inside of the control panel clean. Carry out periodic cleaning
using a damp cloth for the outside. Do not use products containing solvents to clean
the unit. Do not clean the inside of the cabinet with liquid products.

Kilsen KFP-CF Series Operation Manual

Battery maintenance
The control panel requires two 12 V, 7.2 or 12 Ah rechargeable sealed lead-acid
batteries. Compatible batteries for this product are shown in Table 4 below.
Batteries are installed inside the control panel cabinet and must be installed in series,
using the leads and bridge provided. Polarity must be observed. Connect batteries to
the BATT connector on the control panel PCB.

Low battery indication


Battery supply and battery fuse faults are indicated by a flashing Supply Fault LED. If
this LED flashes, check the following:

That the battery cables are in good condition

That the battery cables are connected securely and correctly at the battery and
at the control panel PCB

That the battery voltage is greater than 19.6 V

If the cables are in good condition and all connections are correct, then the batteries
should be replaced immediately.
Replacing batteries
Batteries must be replaced periodically as recommended by the manufacturer. The
useful life of the battery is approximately four years. Avoid the total discharge of the
batteries. Always use the recommended replacement batteries.
To replace the batteries:
1. Disconnect and remove the existing batteries from the cabinet.
2. Install and connect the replacement batteries using the bridge provided. Observe
correct polarity.
3. Dispose of the batteries as required by local or regional regulations.
