Ever tried to fix a fire alarm system that isn't working, but the wiring is just confusing?

To help with the installation and servicing of a fire alarm system, Make It Work - Conventional Fire Alarms shows the how's and why's of:
  • Life-Safety - Why a Fire Alarm System is wired so weirdly in the first place
  • Class A and Class B Circuits - How the building wiring is affected by Life-Safety
  • IDC (Initiating Device Circuit) - How Pull Stations, Smoke Detectors, Waterflow Switches, Etc. use Class A or B Circuit to sound the alarm
  • NAC (Notification Appliance Circuit) - How the Horns and Strobes are turned on and off by the fire alarm control panel
This is not a code book showing the required placement of devices for a fire alarm system; this is a technical book showing how a Conventional Fire Alarm System works.

As an added bonus:
  • Standby Battery Life Expectancy is explained
  • Ground Faults and why they are so dangerous is explained
