Finally, communication between M-2/MAAP/MAAP+ Addressable panel and Monaco Central Receiving Systems is explained. Extensive labs teach students the following:

  • Install, program, operate, and maintain M-2/MAAP/MAAP+ addressable panels
  • Operation of the M-Addressable planner and out to transfer configuration files to the D-21
  • Transfer system requirements to a point-to-point drawing and then wire the panes to meet those system requirements.

Students with a laptop computer will receive hands-on experience programming panels using the planning software.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Anyone who programs, installs, operates, and maintains M-2 Addressable panel

PRE-REQUISITES:

  • The Fire Alarm Systems Design & Maintenance class within the last two years, or NICET Level II, or five years of experience in fire alarm panel installation is required to attend.
  • Pentium-class laptop computer with Windows 95 or later, CD ROM, and at least one 9-pin RS-232 serial port or a 9-pin RS-232 to USB adaptor to program the transceivers. Students need administrative rights to their computer to install software used in the class.

COURSE NUMBER: 020-021-00

CLASS LIMIT: Class size is limited to 18 students. Register early to ensure space availability.

DESCRIPTION: Covers installation, programming, testing, operation, troubleshooting, and maintenance of MAAP-X addressable MNS FACP, which reports to the D-21 Central Receiving System through a built-in radio transceiver. The course also covers basic D-21 data entry for MAAP-X addressable MNS FACP, as well as antenna installation, troubleshooting, testing, radio transmissions with the D-21 and MNS local operating consoles. Extensive Labs teach students the following:

  • Class is taught through lecture and by hands-on labs, wiring addressable devices, MAAP-X programming through the Planner software, and testing to include transmissions with the D-21 Central Receiving System.
  • Students learn the 3 operation modes of an MAAP-X FACP: stand-alone (no radio), point reporting, and non-point reporting.
  • Students learn how to program the panel using conventional IDCs and addressable SLCs. Students also learn how to use the new MNS features and capabilities of the MAAP-X. Point reporting, sensor grouping, local operating consoles, and text displays are also covered.
  • Students receive MAP-X Planner software to program the panels.
  • Students learn how to import a MAAP-X point reporting database file into the D-21.

Students with a laptop computer will receive hands-on experience programming panels using the planning software.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Anyone who programs, installs, operates, and maintains MAAP-X addressable, point reporting, MNS panels

PRE-REQUISITES:

DESCRIPTION: The D-21 is a sophisticated, Windows® based Central Receiving and Management System that is compatible with the D-21 and D-700 transceivers. The D-21 uses client/server architecture and consists of two client programs: the D-21 Administration Client and the D-21 Incident Client. The D-21 Incident Client is used by operators to process incidents and dispatch resources.

The D-21 Central Receiving Class provides hands-on experience setting up the D-21 using the Admin Client and handling incidents using the D-21 Incident Client — from responding to an alert, creating an incident, dispatching resources to handle the incident, and working with the D-21 to provide information needed to expedite incident resolution.

Operators also learn how to use the daily activity functions, view status information and response plans, dispatch resources, interact with an ESRI map of a base, and much more.
