product shall be free of defects in material and workmanship under normal use and that in fulfillment of any
breach of such warranty, Digital Security Controls Ltd. shall, at its option, repair or replace the defective
equipment upon return of the equipment to its repair depot. This warranty applies only to defects in parts
and workmanship and not to damage incurred in shipping or handling, or damage due to causes beyond
control of Digital Security Controls Ltd. such as lightning, excessive voltage, mechanical shock, water
damage, or damage arising out of abuse, alteration or improper application of the equipment.
The foregoing warranty shall apply only to the original buyer, and is and shall be in lieu of any and all other
warranties, whether express or implied and of all other obligations or liabilities on the part of Digital Security
Controls Ltd. This warranty contains the entire warranty. Digital Security Controls Ltd. neither assumes, nor
authorizes any other person purporting to act on its behalf to modify or to change this warranty, nor to assume
for it any other warranty or liability concerning this product.
In no event shall Digital Security Controls Ltd. be liable for any direct, indirect or consequential damages,
loss of anticipated profits, loss of time or any other losses incurred by the buyer in connection with the
purchase, installation or operation or failure of this product.
Warning
Digital Security Controls Ltd. recommends that the entire system be completely tested on a regular basis.
However, despite frequent testing, and due to but not limited to, criminal tampering or electrical disruption,
it is possible for this product to fail to perform as expected.
The Acuity AMA-100 is an advanced acoustic
glass break sensor, designed to detect the
sounds produced by the shattering of framed
glass. The AMA-100 is the result of an
extensive research program, designed to
study the properties of glass as well as the
properties of sounds produced by the
shattering of framed glass. The result is a
detector which provides exceptional sensitivity
and high false alarm immunity. High quality
manufacturing methods have been combined
with a meticulous final test, to produce a detector which is superior to any other
product of its kind.
Dynamic

Signal Processing* provides accurate detection of plate, laminated, wired
and tempered glass types, while rejecting common false alarm sounds.
The AMA-100 uses a 2-wire connection for power and to communicate with the control
panel. This simplifies wiring and reduces installation cost. The AMA-100’s low current
draw also maximizes the number of devices that can be attached to an addressable loop.

FCC COMPLIANCE STATEMENT
CAUTION:
Changes or modifications not expressly approved by Digital Security Controls Ltd. could void your
authority to use this equipment.
This equipment generates and uses radio frequency energy and if not installed and used properly, in strict accordance
with the manufacturer’s instructions, may cause interference to radio and television reception. It has been type tested
and found to comply with the limits for Class B device in accordance with the specifications in Subpart “B” of Part 15
of FCC Rules, which are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in any residential
installation. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this
equipment does cause interference to television or radio reception, which can be determined by turning the equipment
off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:

Re-orient the receiving antenna

Relocate the alarm control with respect to the receiver

Move the alarm control away from the receiver

Connect the alarm control into a different outlet so that alarm control and receiver are on different circuits.
If necessary, the user should consult the dealer or an experienced radio/television technician for additional
suggestions. The user may find the following booklet prepared by the FCC helpful: “How to Identify and
Resolve Radio/Television Interference Problems”. This booklet is available from the U.S. Government
Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 20402, Stock # 004-000-00345-4.
Level of Detection (Jumper J2)
The AMA-100 glass break detector comes with a “detection level” jumper setting
(Jumper J2), which allows the selection of one of two levels of detection, depending
on the size and acoustics of the room in which the detector will be installed. This
improves the overall false alarm immunity of the detector.
• If there are multiple windows, or one large window, activate the tester at the furthest
point on the glass.
When the detector responds consistently, it can be permanently mounted using the
supplied screws. The detector is factory preset for Level 1 detection (Jumper J2=OFF). This is the
highest sensitivity setting of the detector, and is designed for applications requiring
high sensitivity and range, such as larger rooms, or rooms which contain a significant
amount of sound-absorbing surfaces (such as carpets, furniture, drapes, etc.). Level
1 will be suitable for most applications.
For rooms which are smaller, and contain a significant amount of hard, sound-reflective
surfaces (such as kitchens, bathrooms, entrances etc.), Level 2 detection (Jumper J2=ON)
provides a lower sensitivity setting which is more appropriate for these environments.
NOTE: Jumper J1 is not used and must always be left on.
Locating The Detector
NOTE: Test the detector thoroughly for proper placement using the AFT-100
Glass Break Simulator. Other simulators may trip the unit, but will not provide
accurate indications.
• For optimum protection, the detector should have a direct line of sight to the
protected glass.
• Window coverings will absorb sound energy from the shattering glass. In these
cases, mount the detector as close as possible to the protected glass, either on an
adjacent wall, the ceiling, or behind the window covering if possible.
• The detector should be mounted at least 1.8m (6 feet) off the ground.
• Do not mount the detector on the same wall as the protected glass. Refer to the
diagram below for correct and incorrect mounting locations.
• Avoid installation near “noisy” sources, such as speakers or other objects which
produce sounds continuously.
• Do not install the detector beyond the maximum recommended range, even if the
AFT-100 simulator shows additional range - future changes in room acoustics could
reduce that additional range.
• Application on 24 hour loops should be avoided unless the location is unoccupied.
• Test false alarm immunity by creating any sounds in the room which will likely occur
when the alarm system is armed.

Wiring the Device
To connect the AMA-100, consult the wiring diagram below:
Mounting the AMA-100
Once the location has been determined, open the detector by pressing the release tab
on the bottom with a small flat-blade screwdriver. Remove the cover and set in a safe
location. Draw the wires through the rectangular opening in the backplate and connect
to the terminal block. Mount the detector using the two mounting screws. Once the
device is wired and mounted, you will need to enroll it.
Device Enrollment
The serial number located on the back of the device must be enrolled into the alarm
control panel via Installer’s Programming ([
Q
] [8] [Installer’s Code]). This procedure is
outlined for the PC4010/4020 in the control panel Installation Manual and for the
Power panels in the PC5100 Installation Manual.
Once the detector is enrolled, replace the cover and test the detector using the AFT-
100 tester to confirm proper operation.
Removing Devices
Before removing devices from the system,
you must delete their serial numers.
To
remove a 2-wire addressable device from the system, follow the Enrollment
procedure but enter [00000] for the serial number of the device you wish to remove.
You may need to power down the panel to clear troubles which could be
caused by deleted devices.
Replacing Devices
In order to replace an AML device, you must first remove the old device, then enroll
the new device, as described above.
WARNING: Connect only DSC Addressable Series devices to the addressable
loop connections. Connection of ANY other type of device will impair operation.
Any devices other than Addressable Series devices which require power to
operate must be powered separately.
Testing
Once you have mounted, wired and enrolled the detector, test to ensure that the
detector is working correctly. To do this:
1. Put the control panel in walk test mode as described in the control panel installation manual.
2. Use the AFT-100 glass break simulator to test the AMA-100. When the AMA-100 is
working correctly, the LED will light up in response to the AFT-100. Refer to the
section below for tips on using the AFT-100.
3. End walk test mode as described in the control panel installation manual.
NOTE: The detector will not respond to the glass break simulator unless the
system is in walk test mode.
The AFT-100 Glass Break Simulator
The AFT-100 glass break simulator generates plate or tempered glass samples. Use the
plate glass setting if you are unsure of the glass type. Observe the following when testing
the detector:
• The correct mounting location is indicated by three successive detections. If the
detector does not respond each time, relocate the detector and repeat the test.
• If the windows in question are covered by drapes or blinds, place the tester behind the
closed window coverings. If the drapes prevent reliable detection, we suggest that the
detector be mounted behind the drapes either on an adjacent wall or on the ceiling. The detector is factory preset for Level 1 detection (Jumper J2=OFF). This is the
highest sensitivity setting of the detector, and is designed for applications requiring
high sensitivity and range, such as larger rooms, or rooms which contain a significant
amount of sound-absorbing surfaces (such as carpets, furniture, drapes, etc.). Level
1 will be suitable for most applications.
For rooms which are smaller, and contain a significant amount of hard, sound-reflective
surfaces (such as kitchens, bathrooms, entrances etc.), Level 2 detection (Jumper J2=ON)
provides a lower sensitivity setting which is more appropriate for these environments.
