Product Details

The Protec 6000 Smoke Damper Control Module has been designed and manufactured in the United Kingdom and complies fully with current standards dictating fire alarm system design practice (EN54 Part 17 and 18).

The Damper Control Module is an innovative fire alarm interface, compatible with the Protec MX1 loop communication system, which allows control of a building’s heating, ventilation and air conditioning system smoke dampers directly from the buildings fire alarm system.

Configuration of the device is carried out using Near Field Communication programming and allows the device maximum flexibility to interface to a wide range of damper actuator types.

Both 2-position (power open/fail-safe closed, or power closed/fail-safe open) and 3-position modulating (power open, modulating, fail safe closed) actuators are supported by the control module with position monitoring and indication of the connected damper. All monitoring information is transmitted and displayed at the fire alarm system display control panels and where fitted, the FA graphics and Fireman’s Override Control Panels.

Monitored inputs from each 6000/DCM are programmable and can be used by the fire alarm cause & effect matrix to operate other output requirements.

Modulated damper support allows vane adjustment and monitoring locally at the Damper Control Module and remotely from the fire alarm control equipment. The vane position is adjusted and set during air-balance commissioning, this set-position is stored by the damper control module and becomes the dampers normal operating position unless actively overriden to open or close (fail safe).

Additional input and outputs are included at the device to allow for external building management interfaces to be connected. These can override and monitor the damper position, with loop control having priority.

The 6000 Damper Control Module can be supplied from a 230 Vac or 24 Vdc input supply. A 230 Vac supply will allow the module to operate a 230 Vac actuator or a 24 V dc actuator using the internal regulator. A 24 Vdc input supply will allow operation of a 24 Vdc actuator with a power supply unit fault input supplied for external supply monitoring.

Loss of loop control at the Damper Control Module, would send the actuator to a selectable default position.

The Damper Control Module incorporates a fault delay feature that allows dampers to move between their instructed open and closed positions, within a selectable 60 seconds to 240 seconds timeout period.
