6. Note the following while recording:
During the message selection process, the Record LED will repeat a flash rate in the
following manner:
Initial Record button press to select message #1 - ¼ second flash rate
Press Record button a 2nd time to select message #2 - two ¼ second flashes
Press Record button a 3rd time to select message #3 - three ¼ second flashes
Press Record button a 4th time to select message #4 - four ¼ second flashes
Press Record button a 5th time extinguishes the Record LED and terminates the record
process
The total flash interval time is 9 seconds
To alert the user that there is only two seconds of record time remaining, the LED on the
Record button will change from steady-on to flashing.
The System Trouble LED and Trouble Relay will be on while recording. The system will
not respond to CMD inputs or Zone System serial link controls from the ACC-25/50ZS/T
while recording.
It is not necessary to fill the entire record time. The time limits represent the maximum time
allotted.
Factory default messages are replaced with the custom message recordings from the
External Audio Input Jacks or microphone.
7. Press the button labeled ‘Record’ the respective number of times to select the appropriate
message to record as described in Step 6. The Record LED will flash as described above.
After 9 seconds, the Record LED will switch to steady on, at which point the recording of the
voice message may commence.
8. At the end of recording, the Record button must be pressed again to signal the end of the
recorded message. Avoid long pauses at the end of the message by promptly pressing the
Record button when the voice message input has stopped. Note that it is not necessary to fill
the entire 60 second record time. The time limit represents the maximum time allotted. If the
Record button is not pressed to signal the end of the voice recording, the unit automatically
ends the message at the time out period.
9. Disable recording by setting SW1 switch 3 to the OFF position.
10. Playback the recorded messages for accuracy. This may be done via the ‘Playback’ key or by
creating an alarm or evacuate condition. The Playback feature allows for reviewing the
message locally via the FC-LPS option module without generating the message through the
amplifiers.
4.2 Playback Button
The Playback button can be used to review the stored voice message. By connecting the optional
Local Playback Speaker Module (FC-LPS), the message can be heard without transmitting it over
the system speakers.
Message Playback
1. Control the Message Control Settings on S1 DIP switches 7 and 8 located on the Distributed

played-back. Table 2.2 on page 27.

DELETION OF THE STORED MESSAGE. IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO RECORD WITH THE SW2
RECORD BYPASS SWITCH IN THE DOWN POSITION.
