Make It Work - Conventional Fire Alarms begins by showing how Life-Safety affects the building-wide electronics, and then answers the Questions:
  • Why can't there be T-taps on the Initiating Device Circuit (IDC) or the Notification Appliance Circuit NAC)?
  • Why does the NAC circuit reverse voltage when it goes into alarm?
  • How does Conventional Fire Alarm Supervision Work?
  • Why is Class A Wiring better than Class B Wiring?
This is not a code book showing the required placement of devices for a fire alarm system; this is a technical book showing electronically how a Conventional Fire Alarm System works.

Dear Sirs !

First, I thank you for helping me get the book you wrote. The book provides information for those who want to learn about fire alarm systems. I hope you continue to write more about fire alarm systems, such as: Common mistakes when connecting wires; Questions and answers about fire alarm systems ... etc. If there are more illustrated pictures then better ... it helps the reader to understand the problem quickly.

Thanks & Brgd, M N
