Tyco MCP830 Addressable Outdoor Call Point MX Minerva
The MCP830 Weatherproof Addressable Break Glass Call point is an outdoor MX addressable manual call point. The call point is designed to monitor and signal the condition of a switch contact that is operated by breaking a glass sheet. Any change in the status of the switch is immediately communicated to the control panel. The MCP830M is fitted onto a standard KAC weatherproof backbox, which is supplied with the call point. The MCP830 has an integral short-circuit isolator for monitoring the field wiring. The MCP830 call point meets the requirements of EN54 Pt. 11 and EN54 Pt. 17.
The MCP830 consists of a switch contact which is operated by breaking the glass sheet. When the call point is operated, it signals the condition of this switch contact to the control panel. The LED is illuminated in red to indicate the ‘ALARM’ condition. As the call point is resettable, it can be tested at any time with the aid of the call point test key provided. To release the front of the housing, the key is fully inserted into the bottom of the housing and pulled down, this releases the break glass element and the call point is operated.
To reset the call point, the key is removed and the bottom of the housing is pushed upwards until it locks. If a section of the loop wiring adjacent to the MCP830 is shorted, the built in short-circuit isolator trips, isolating the shorted section. The LED is illuminated in yellow to indicate that the isolator is tripped. This status remains until the short is removed.
