FIS 1114 – MXL – Installation, Operation and Maintenance

Overview: Learn to install, operate, maintain, test, troubleshoot and wire an MXL advanced microprocessor-based fire alarm system. The custom software, Acculink (CSG-M), will be used to transfer customer programs to the MXL Fire Alarm System. Simple changes will be made to installed software.

Participants: Persons responsible for engineering, installing or maintaining an MXL system.


You Will Learn To:

Basic Control Unit

• Acknowledge Alarms, Supervisories, Troubles and Securities at the panel.
• Silence the panel.
• Reset the panel.


• Install field devices.
• Use the Device Programming Unit (DPU).
• Add devices to the database using Acculink (CSG-M) software.
• Perform electrical installation and checkout.

Menu Functions

• Use panel menu functions.
• Configure and print reports.
• View and change detector sensitivities.
• Enable and disable points.

 MXL Programming Tool (Acculink)

• Create an MXL configuration.
• Transfer configuration to MXL Systems.

Workshop Exercises

• Construct an MXL-IQ system from discrete components.
• Operate and test the MXL System.
• Test and inspect an MXL System per NFPA 72 standards.
• Troubleshoot an MXL System.

Prerequisites:  Working knowledge of addressable fire alarm systems and IBM computers is assumed. Students must complete web-based training before attending this class: FIS 100 (Fire Detection and Alarm System Basics) and FIS 150 (MXL/MXLV Fire Panels and Components).
