Kidde GSA-CC2 Dual Input (Riser) Module
- Single and Dual input (riser) select
- Connects supervised 24 Vdc Audible/Visible signal circuits to their power inputs.
- Connects 25 and 70 VRMS Audio Evacuation and Telephone circuits to their power inputs
- Plug-in (UIO) or standard 2-gang mount for quick installation of multiple modules
- The 2-gang mount is ideal for remote locations with a single module
- Transmits information to the controller regarding their locations with respect to other devices on the loop
- Programmable addresses are downloaded from the loop controller, a PC, or the SIGA-PRO Signature Program/Service Tool
- All decisions are made at the module to for lower communication speed with improved control panel response time
- Less sensitive to line noise and loop wiring properties
- Detects ground faults right down to the device level.
Kidde’s GSA-CC2 Dual Input Riser Module is part of Kidde’s Signature Series system. It is an intelligent analog addressable device used for connecting, upon command from the loop controller, supervised Class B signal or telephone circuits to their respective power inputs. The power inputs may be polarized 24 Vdc to operate audible and visible signal appliances or 25 and 70 VRMS to operate audio evacuation speakers and firefighter’s telephones.
The actual operation of the GSA-CC2 device is determined by the “personality code” selected by the installer. It is downloaded to the module from the Signature loop controller during system configuration.
The GSA-CC2 Dual Input Riser mounts to standard North American 2-1/2 inch (64 mm) deep two-gang boxes and 1-1/2 inch (38 mm) deep 4-inch square boxes with two-gang covers and GSA-MP mounting plates. The terminals are suited for #12 to #18 AWG (2.5 mm2 to 0.75 mm2) wire size. The device is ideal for locations where only one module is required. Separate I/O and data loop connections are made to each module.
The loop controller electronically addresses each module saving valuable time during system commissioning. Setting complicated switches or dials is not required. Each GSA-CC2 module has its own unique serial number stored in its on-board memory. The loop controller identifies each device on the loop and assigns a “soft” address to each serial number. If desired, the modules can be addressed using the SIGA-PRO Signature Program/Service Tool.
The operation of Kidde’s GSA-CC2/MCC2 Dual Input Riser is determined by its sub-type code or “Personality Code”. The code is selected by the installer depending upon the desired application and is downloaded from the loop controller. Personality Code 7 is assigned to the GSA-CC2 and automatically applies to both circuits (A and B). It is factory assigned and no user configuration is required.
Personality Code 7: SIGNAL POWER or AUDIO EVACUATION (DUAL RISER). Configures the module for use as a two circuit Class B Audible/Visible Signal power (24 Vdc polarized) or Audio Evacuation (25 or 70 VRMS) power selector. The single output circuit is monitored for open or shorted wiring. If a short exists, the control panel inhibits the activation of the audible/visible signal circuit to prevent connection to the power circuit.
The GSA-CC2 Dual Input Riser module is compatible only with Kidde’s Signature Loop Controller.
Testing & Maintenance
The GSA-CC2 module’s automatic self-diagnosis identifies when it is defective and causes a trouble message. The user-friendly maintenance program shows the current state of each module and other pertinent messages. Single modules may be turned off (de-activated) temporarily, from the control panel.
Typical Wiring (GSA-CC2)
Modules will accept #18 AWG (0.75mm2), #16 (1.0mm2), #14 AWG (1.50mm2) and #12 AWG (2.5mm2) wire sizes.
Note: Sizes #16 AWG (1.0mm2) and #18 AWG (0.75mm2) are preferred for ease of installation.
