PIM-430 Commissioning Procedure

 

PIM-430 Commissioning Procedure

 

1.Remove factory supplied 4.7K 1/2w end-of-line resistors (ELR) from terminal TB2 and install across the conductors at the end of each Protectowire run as shown on the wiring diagram. In Protectowire 2-wire applications, if one of the detection zones is unused, a 4.7K end-of-line resistor must be installed across the unused zone terminals on terminal block TB2.
2.Connect Protectowire Linear Heat Detector to the module using terminal block TB2. Refer to wiring diagram for specific zone or TRI-WireTM pre-alarm and high temperature circuit terminal designations. Important: To ensure proper TRI-WireTM operation, the polarity of the circuit must be maintained as illustrated.
3. Connect host panel’s initiating circuit end-of-line device across terminals 2 & 5 on terminal blocks TB3 and/or TB4 as required by the application. See host panel wiring specifications. If polarity is required, connect (+) to terminal 2, (-) to terminal 5 on TB3 and (+) to terminal 5, and (-) to terminal 2 on TB4.
4. Connect host panel’s initiating device circuit(s) across terminals 2 (+) & 3 (-) on terminal block TB3 and/or terminals 4 (-) & 5 (+) on TB4 as functionally required by the application. Install jumpers between terminals 3 & 4 on TB3 and TB4. See host code or local authority requires grounding, connect terminal 6 marked E-GND on TB1 to earth ground.

6. At the end of the Protectowire Linear Heat Detection run, open the circuit at the 4.7K end-of-line resistor. The yellow “Trouble” LED on the PIM-430 will light, and the host panel should report a trouble condition. Reconnect the end-of-line resistor and the “Trouble” LED will extinguish and the host panel should reset to normal. Perform this test for each active Protectowire zone or the pre-alarm and high temperature alarm legs of the TRI-WireTM detection circuit. Note: Manual trouble reset of the host panel may also be required depending upon the make and model installed.
7. At the end of the Protectowire Linear Heat Detection run, short the circuit across the 4.7K end-of-line resistor. The red “Alarm” LED on the PIM-430 will light and the host panel should report an alarm condition. To restore the system to normal, reset the host control panel. The PIM-430 Protectowire alarm initiating circuit(s) are non-latching and self-restore upon clearing the short from the circuit(s). Perform this test for each active Protectowire zone or the pre-alarm and high temperature alarm legs of the TRI-WireTM detection circuit.

Alarm Point Location Meter Calibration(“D” Models)

After installation, the meter must be calibrated to compensate for the resistance of the copper feed wire between the PIM-430D Interface Module and the start of the Protectowire portion of the circuit. Adjust the meter per the following procedure:

1. Disconnect all alarm and/or releasing devices from the host system before applying power to the module.
2. Connect a jumper across the Zone 1 detection circuit in the first zone box at the beginning of the Protectowire run. For TRI-WireTM installations, jumper across the low temperaturepre-alarm portion of the detection circuit (pink and blackconductors). Caution: This action will cause an alarm condition
on the detection circuit.
3. On the Interface Module, move and hold the meter read toggle switch to the left (ï) position. The meter will display the copper feed cable error.
4. To cancel out (zero) this value, adjust the “Meter Offset” potentiometer on the Interface Module using a small screwdriver to turn the adjustment screw until the meter reads zero.
Remove the jumper from the detection circuit, and reset the host control panel. For TRI-WireTM applications go to Step 6.

Protectowire is a fixed temperature digital sensor and is therefore capable of initiating an alarm once its rated activation temperature is reached. At the rated temperature, the heat sensitive polymer insulation yields to the pressure upon it, permitting the inner conductors to move into contact with each other thereby initiating an alarm signal. This action takes place at the first heated point anywhere along the Detector’s length. It does not require that a specific length be heated in order to initiate an alarm nor is system calibration necessary to compensate for changes in the installed ambient temperature. Protectowire Linear Heat Detector provides the advantages of line coverage with point sensitivity.

Features

• Line coverage…continuous sensitivity.
• Six alarm temperature ratings.
• Withstands severe environmental conditions.
• Approved for hazardous locations.
• Easy to install, test, and splice.
• Compatible with other initiation devices on same circuit.
• Approved for up to 50 ft. (15.2m) spacing.

Applications

• Cable trays
• Conveyors
• Power distribution apparatus: switchgear, transformers, motor control centers
• Dust collectors/baghouses

Description

The Detector is made in multiple temperature ratings to allow for differences in normal ambient temperature. Guidelines for selecting the proper detector temperature rating are the same as for automatic sprinklers and other heat actuated devices. Refer to the Temperature Rating Chart for proper model selection based upon installation temperature limits.

The Detector’s product range consists of two distinct types of cable. Standard PHSC models and low resistance “Universal” versions designated with the prefix PLR. Each model number designation also identifies a specific outer jacket material carefully selected to accommodate the widest range of installation environments.

All specifications are subject to change without notice. EPC – Type EPC Protectowire consists of a durable flame retardant vinyl outer jacket. This series is best described as multi-purpose and is well suited to a wide range of both commercial and industrial applications. The outer jacket provides good all-around performance for most installations.

It features low moisture absorption, resistance to many common chemicals, and excellent flexibility at low temperatures. XCR – Type XCR utilizes a high performance fluoropolymer jacket. This detector is specifically designed for use in applications where extreme environmental and product performance criteria must be met.

In general, the flame retardant, low smoke XCR jacket provides excellent abrasion resistance and mechanical properties over a broad range of temperatures. It provides excellent chemical and permeation resistance to a wide variety of acids, bases, and organic solvents as well as simple gases. In addition, the jacket exhibits very little change in tensile properties upon outdoor exposure to sunlight and weather. XLT – Protectowire Type XLT is a unique detector that has been designed for use in cold storage facilities and other applications that require a low alarm activation temperature.

The outer jacket consists of a proprietary flame retardant polymer that is specifically formulated to provide low moisture absorption, good chemical resistance, and excellent low temperature environmental performance.This detector has been UL and FM tested to –60˚F (–51˚C).
