  • Available for one (GA) or two stage (pre-signal) alarm systems.
  • With Break Glass operation rod that discourages tampering
  • Intelligent device with integral microprocessor which substantially improves control panel response time. Less sensitive to line noise and loop wiring properties.
  • ADA Compliant for manual pull station.
  • Permanently stores programmable address, serial number, type of device, and job number.
  • Automatically updates historic information including hours of operation, last maintenance date, number of alarms and troubles, and time and date of last alarm.
  • Automatically maps devices by transmitting wiring information to the loop control­ler regarding its location with respect to other devices on the circuit
  • Stand-alone station inputs an alarm even if the loop controller’s polling interrogation stops.
  • Diagnostic LED Statuses: GREEN for normal polling and RED for alarm state.
  • Designed for high ambient temperature operation up to 120 °F (49 °C).

The Kidde GSA-M270 Manual Pull Station is made from die-cast zinc and finished with red epoxy powder-coat paint complemented by aluminum colored stripes and markings. With positive pull-lever operation, one pull on the station handle breaks the glass rod and turns in a posi­tive alarm.



The operating characteristics of the fire alarm stations are deter­mined by their sub-type code or “Personality Code”. NORMALLY-OPEN ALARM – LATCHING (Personality Code 1) is assigned by the factory; no user configuration is required. The device is configured for Class B IDC operation. An ALARM signal is sent to the loop controller when the station’s pull lever is operated. The alarm con­dition is latched at the station.


The Kidde GSA-M270 Manual Pull Station is only compatible with Kidde’s Signature Loop Controller.

Testing & Maintenance

The station’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 Signature series device and other pertinent messages. Single devices may be deactivated temporarily, from the control panel.

Typical Wiring

The GSA-M270’s terminal block accepts #18 AWG (0.75mm2) to #12 AWG (2.5mm2) wire sizes.


The single-stage GSA-M270 manual pull station mounts to North American 2.5 inch (64 mm) deep 1-gang boxes.

All models include terminals are suited for #12 to #18 AWG (2.5 mm2 to 0.75 mm2) wire size.

Electronic Addressing

The loop controller electronically addresses each manual station, saving valuable time during system com­missioning. Each station 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 stations can be addressed using the SIGA-PRO Signature Program/Service Tool.
