Installation and Operation Manual

Control Panel Limitations
The FW106/FW106C control panel may not show an alarm condition without compatible initiating devices
(smoke detectors, etc.) and notification devices (horn, lights, etc.) connected to it. Electrical ratings of the
initiation and notification appliances must be compatible with the electrical ratings of the control panel
and must be properly interconnected. The wiring used for interconnection must be large enough to carry
the total current for all appliances without excessive voltage drop. Please refer to Appendix‐B: Wire
Selection Guide for detail.

The control panel must be connected to a dedicated primary electrical source that has a high degree of
reliability and adequate capacity for this control panel. The means of disconnecting this power source shall be
available only to authorized personnel and clearly marked "Fire Alarm Circuit Control".

A battery set (24V) that has enough capacity to properly operate the system for 24 hours standby and
30 minutes alarm per UL864 10th Edition (section 69.2.3 and 69.2.5) / ULC‐S527 3rd Edition (section 10.5) or as
otherwise required by local codes and the AHJ must also be connected to the control panel. These batteries do
lose capacity with age. Batteries must be replaced when they fail to provide the control panel with the required
standby and alarm power or after 4 years, whichever happens first. These batteries must be checked for
performance at least twice a year or more often, if local requirements dictate.

Even though this control panel was made to last for the expected life of the fire alarm system, parts can fail at
any time. Therefore, a regular test program should be followed and documented to make sure each part of the
system is tested, as indicated in Chapter 7 of NFPA 72, and CAN/ULC‐S536, or more often if dictated by local
code requirements. Malfunctioning units must be replaced or repaired immediately by factory authorized
service personnel.

                 This control panel is designed to show an alarm condition when the initiating devices connected to it
                 detects specific conditions. These conditions may or may not represent a life‐threatening condition.
                 Unneeded evacuation of a building or an area may subject individuals to an unnecessary hazard.
                 Therefore, it is important that the building owner, manager, or representative promulgate, distribute,
                 and/or post instructions describing steps to be taken when the fire alarm control panel signals an
                 alarm condition. These instructions should be developed in co‐operation with representatives of the
                 local authority having jurisdiction and in accordance with the applicable standards.

Installation and Operation Manual

Overview
FW106/FW106CFire Alarm Control Panel
The FireWatcher FW106/FW106C is an intelligent Fire Alarm Control Panel designed for small to medium‐scale
facilities. The FireWatcher FW106/FW106C is ideally suited for both new and retrofit commercial, institutional,
and industrial fire detection and notification applications. The only difference between FW106 and FW106C is
the language. FW106 is in English and FW106C is in French.

                         (a) FW106 (English)                (b) FW106C (French)
                                   Figure 1 FW106/FW106C Control Panel

The FireWatcher FW106/FW106C is an addressable fire control system that meets the requirements of UL 864
10th Edition, and CAN/ULC‐S527 3rd edition. It can support:
     4 Addressable Loop Circuits and 1,008 addressable devices/points
     4 Notification Appliance Circuits
     5 form C dry relay contacts.

The FW106/FW106C has
     A 7” color LCD and a resolution of 800×480
     6 auxiliary function keys
     9 LED indicators making it the most intuitive fire‐alarm user interface.

                                                        3
Installation and Operation Manual
The FW106/FW106C can also connect with up to 110 panels and/or remote annunciators via a CAN bus to form
a fire emergency detection and notification network system.

Networked panels and/or annunciators can share the following events and manual controls:
    Event (signal) type: ALARM, SUPERVISORY, TROUBLE, MONITOR, OUTPUT
    Manual Control type: Signal Silence, Buzzer Silence, Reset, Acknowledge

Event/control sharing can be configured in three modes – Peer to Peer, Group, and Master/Slave.
    Peer‐to‐Peer
       All panels/annunciators are intended to function as a single system and share events/controls of each
       other.
    Group
       Panels/annunciators can be assigned into multiple groups. There are two options of event/control
       sharing:
       o “Events & Operation” – Events and controls are only shared within individual group; Events and
            Controls are NOT shared across the groups.
       o “Operation Only” – Events are shared across the network. Controls are shared within individual
            group. Each panel/annunciator can silence troubles locally outside of the group.
    Master/Slave
       o Only one panel (address #1) can be the Master panel. The Master panel can receive events from all
            networked panels, as well as have controls over all panels.
       o All the other panels are Slave panels. A slave panel can only view events from its own inputs, and
            control its own outputs.
       o All annunciators act like the Master panel.

Installation and Operation Manual

INSTALLATION
Cautions
1. Remove the PCB for any procedure that may cause dust, metal shavings, grease, or such matter to affect the
   operation of the boards or get in contact with the units.

2. Disconnect all sources of power prior to installing or removing modules, connecting or disconnecting wiring
   and programming jumpers.

3. Group the incoming wires through the top of the enclosure. For easy identification and neatness use a wire
   tie.

4. DO NOT insert cables through bottom of the box. This space is reserved for Batteries.

Control Panel Location
The control panel should be located near an exit at ground level where the normal ambient temperature is
maintained within the control panel specification (see the Specifications and Features section). The unit should
be in an area free of dust, vibration, moisture, and condensation. Any auxiliary battery box or other accessory
not connected through a protective device or a circuit designed for remote connection must be within 20 ft. and
in the same room, connected through the electrical conduit.

Control Panel Installation Notice
The cabinet must be fastened securely to a clean, dry, shock‐free, and vibration‐free surface in a protected
environment. Consider the following when mounting the cabinet:

   Mounting height for visual and manual access to the Display Board
   Weight and size of cabinet
   Local mounting codes

When mounting the cabinet, position the cabinet clear of obstructions so that the door can open freely and
indicators and controls are easily accessible.

The fire alarm control panel must be mounted in a properly accessible location, as required by the applicable
codes and the AHJ.

Installation must be done by qualified personnel who have thoroughly read and who understands these
instructions.

Cabinet Mounting
To install the cabinet:

 Select a clean, dry, shock, and vibration‐free surface in a protected environment.
 Position the cabinet clear of obstructions so that the front door opens freely and the controls and
indicators are easily accessible.
 Mark the locations of the two upper mounting bolts of the cabinet on the wall.
                              There are two key‐shaped cutouts on the top of the back box. Make sure the end with
                              the two key‐shaped cutouts is on top when installing the back box.

       Drill the two holes marked in the previous step and screw in the top bolts, leaving a small gap between
        the wall and each top bolt.

                              Choose a screw type and length able to support the control panel, options, and battery
                              set. You may need a different screw type depending on the wall material.

       Place the cabinet over the two top bolts and allow it to slide down over the bolts.
       Mark, drill, and install the two bottom bolts in the cabinet.
       Tighten all four bolts securely against the back wall of the cabinet.

Remove Knock‐Outs
Prepare the enclosure for electrical wiring by breaking out the appropriate conduit entry points. The optional
knockout locations and quantities are shown in Figure 14. The power limited and non‐power limited conductors
must be separated. In order to maintain the minimum separation, follow the wire routing shown in Figure 14. At
least 1/4 in.is required between the non‐power limited and power limited conductors. Power limited and
non‐power limited wiring must be run in a separate conduit.

Attach conduit (if required) and run wires as required. Label each field cable for future reference.

Basic system wiring and detector positioning must be done in accordance with NFPA 72 or other applicable
codes and instructions from the appropriate local authority having jurisdiction. Unit connections and limitations
are as indicated on the wiring diagrams included in the SYSTEM WIRING section of this manual.
