INSTALLATION AND MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS
Addressable Photoelectric Smoke Detector
Before installing detectors, please thoroughly read the supporting
Honeywell control panel installation instructions, which provide de-
tailed information on detector spacing, placement, zones, and special
applications. Copies of the installation instructions are available from
Honeywell. NFPA 72 and NEMA guidelines should also be observed.
This manual shall be left with the owner/user of this equipment.
This detector must be tested and maintained regularly follow-
ing NFPA 72 requirements. At a minimum, cleaning should be performed an-
The Model 5193SD/SDT addressable photoelectric smoke detector incorpo-
rates a state-of-the-art optical sensing chamber and an advanced microproces-
sor. Built-in Drift Compensation algorithms automatically maintain proper
operation at factory calibrated detection levels, even when sensitivity is al-
tered due to the presence of contaminates settling into the unit’s chamber. In
order for this feature to work properly, the chamber must never be opened
while power is applied to the smoke detector. This includes cleaning, mainte-
nance or screen replacement. Should it become necessary, the screen/sensing
chamber is field replaceable. Once the detector has reached its limit of com-
pensation, a maintenance signal is indicated at the panel. The 5193SDT also
features a restorable, built-in, fixed temperature (135°F) thermal detector.
The detector is designed to provide open area protection and to be used with
compatible UL-listed Honeywell control panels.
Installation of the 5193SD/SDT detector is simplified by the use of a mounting
base that may be pre-wired to the system, allowing the detector to be easily
installed or removed.
Two LEDs on the detector provide a local visual indication of the detector’s

During initial power-up, the red and green LEDs will blink synchronously
once every ten seconds. It will take approximately 50 seconds for the detector
to finish the power-up cycle (see Table 2).
TABLE 2: POwER-UP SEqUENCE fOR LED STATUS INDICATION
Initial LED Status Indication
Initial LED Status Indication
(if excessive electrical noise is present)
If, during power-up, the detector determines there is excessive electri-
cal noise in the system such as those caused by improper grounding of the
system or the conduit, both LEDs will blink for up to 4 minutes before display-
ing detector status (see Table 2).
After power-up has completed and the detector is functioning normally within
its listed sensitivity range, the green LED blinks once every five seconds. If the
detector is in need of maintenance because its sensitivity has shifted outside
the listed limits, the red LED blinks once every five seconds. When the detec-
tor reports an alarm condition to the control panel, the panel will send a code
command to steadily light that unit’s red LED. If the same loop has multiple
detectors reporting alarm, only the first detector that reported alarm would
have have its red LED turned on steadily. The remaining units in alarm
will blink their red LED once per second. However, the panel will latch the
address of all detectors that reported alarm. The LED indication must not be
used in lieu of the tests specified under
To measure the detector’s sensitivity, the Model SENS-RDR Infrared Sensitivity
Reader tool (see Figure 5) should be used.
The 5193SD/SDT has an internal serial number which must be enrolled in the
control panel prior to its use in the system. Before programming, make sure
the detector is mounted on its base. To program this device, enter the control
panel’s Zone Programming mode. Assign the appropriate Fire Zone Type and
an Input Type of “06” (serial number polling loop device). When prompted,
either press the “test” button on the smoke detector to enroll the serial num-
ber (it will be displayed on the keypad), or enter the serial number manually
through the keypad. Press the “test” button again to enroll the loop number,
or enter loop number “1.”
Each 5193SD/SDT detector is supplied with a mounting base that can be

fIgURE 1: MOUNTINg Of DETECTOR
The 5193SD/SDT detector includes a tamper-resistant feature that prevents
removal from the mounting base without the use of a tool. To engage the tam-
per-resistant feature, cut the small plastic tab located on the mounting base
(Figure 2), and then install the detector. To remove the detector from the base
once it has been made tamper resistant, use a small screwdriver to depress the
square tamper release tab, located on the skirt of the mounting base, and turn
the detector counterclockwise.

Detectors must be tested after installation and following maintenance.
Before testing, notify the proper authorities that maintenance is being
performed and the system will be temporarily out of service. Disable the zone
or system undergoing maintenance to prevent any unwanted alarms.
Ensure proper wiring and power is applied.
After power up, allow 50
seconds for the detector to stabilize before testing.

If the detector is within the listed sensitivity limits, the detector’s red
LED should light within five seconds. An alarm should be annunciated at
the system’s control or console within 5 seconds.
Smoke Entry Test
Canned aerosol simulated smoke (canned smoke agent) may be used for
smoke entry testing of the smoke detector. Tested and approved aerosol
smoke products are the Smoke Detector Tester model 25S available from
Home Safeguard Industries and Chekkit Smoke Detector Tester mod-
els CHEK02 and CHEK06 available from SDi. When used properly, the
canned smoke agent will cause the smoke detector to go into alarm.
wIRINg INSTALLATION gUIDELINES
All wiring must be installed in compliance with the National Electrical Code,
applicable state and local codes, and any special requirements of the local
Authority Having Jurisdiction.
Proper wire gauges should be used. The conductors used to connect smoke
detectors to the alarm control panel and accessory devices should be color-
coded to reduce the likelihood of wiring errors. Improper connections can
prevent a system from responding properly in the event of a fire.
The screw terminals in the mounting base will accept 14–22 gauge wire. For
best system performance, all wiring should be installed in separate grounded
conduit; do not mix fire alarm system wiring in the same conduit as any other
electrical wiring. Twisted pair may be used to provide additional protection
against extraneous electrical interference.
Wire connections are made by stripping approximately
-inch of insulation
from the end of the feed wire, inserting it into the proper base terminal, and
tightening the screw to secure the wire in place. HW-500-003
Refer to the manufacturer’s published instructions for proper use of the
canned smoke agent.
Direct Heat Method (5193SDT only)
Using a 1000-1500 watt hair dryer, direct the heat toward either of the
thermistors. Hold the heat source about 12 inches from the detector to
avoid damage to the plastic.
: Test detector alarm operation from the
control panel if applicable (refer to control panel test procedure).
If a detector fails any of the above test methods, its wiring should be checked
and it should be cleaned as outlined in the
section. If the
detector still fails, it should be replaced.
Notify the proper authorities when the system is back in service.
Before performing maintenance on the detector, notify the proper
authorities that maintenance is being performed and the system will be tem-
porarily out of service. Disable the zone or system undergoing maintenance
to prevent any unwanted alarms.
Power must be removed from the panel
before performing maintenance of any kind.
Remove the detector cover by turning counterclockwise.
Vacuum the cover or use canned air to remove any dust or debris.
Remove the top half of the screen/sensing chamber by lifting straight up
Vacuum or use canned air to remove any dust or particles that are pres-
ent on both chamber halves.
Replace the top half of the screen/sensing chamber by aligning the arrow
on the screen/sensing chamber with the arrow on the housing. Press
down firmly until the screen/sensing chamber is fully seated.
Replace the detector cover by placing it over the screen/sensing chamber
and turning it clockwise until it snaps into place.
Reinstall the detector and test. (See the
Notify the proper authorities when the system is back in service.
fIgURE 6: REMOvINg/REPLACINg SCREEN/SENSINg CHAMBER
Smoke detectors are not to be used with detector guards unless the combina-
tion has been evaluated and found suitable for that purpose.
Do NOT Install Detectors in the Following Areas:
In or near areas where particles of combustion are normally present
such as kitchens; in garages (vehicle exhaust); near furnaces, hot water
heaters, or gas space heaters.
In very cold or very hot areas.
In wet or excessively humid areas, or next to bathrooms with showers.
In dusty, dirty, or insect-infested areas.
Near fresh air inlets or returns or excessively drafty areas. Air condition-
ers, heaters, fans, and fresh air intakes and returns can drive smoke
away from the detector.
Consult NFPA 72, the local Authority Having Jurisdiction (AHJ), and/or ap-
plicable codes for specific information regarding the spacing and placement
of smoke detectors.
Dust covers are an effective way to limit the entry of dust into the smoke de-
tector sensing chamber. However, they may not completely prevent airborne
dust particles from entering the detector. Therefore, Honeywell recommends
the removal of detectors before beginning construction or other dust produc-
ing activity. When returning the system to service, be sure to remove the dust
covers from any detectors that were left in place during construction.
