Addressable Manual Station

Model 4099-5201 Single Action Manual Station
Model 4099-5202 Double Action
(Breakglass) Manual Station

MX addressable stations contain an integral addressable module that constantly monitors status and communicates with an MX Loop Module located in the host fire alarm control panel.

Individual addressable manual fire alarm stations with:

  • Power and data supplied via MX Technology addressable loop communications using a single wire pair
  • EMI compatibility
  • Address is easily programmed with the MX Service Tool
  • Internally mounted addressable module is similar to the design of the 4090-5201 Mini-IAM
  • Available as single action or double action breakglass operation
  • Pull lever that protrudes when alarmed
  • Break-rod supplied (use is optional)
  • UL listed to Standard 38


  • For use with Simplex┬« 4100ES, 4010ES, and 4100U Series fire alarm control panels equipped with an MX Loop Module
  • Refer to data sheet S4100-0059 for MX Loop Module details

Compact construction:

  • Electronics module enclosure minimizes dust infiltration
  • Allows mounting in standard electrical boxes
  • Screw terminals for wiring connections

Tamper resistant reset key lock (keyed same as Simplex fire alarm cabinets)

Multiple mounting options:

  • Surface or semi-flush with standard boxes or matching Simplex boxes
  • Flush mount adapter kit
  • Adapters are available for retrofitting to commonly available existing boxes

Activation of the 4099-5201 single action manual station requires a firm downward pull to activate the alarm switch. Completing the action breaks an internal plastic break-rod (visible below the pull lever, use is optional). The use of a break-rod can be a deterrent to vandalism without interfering with the minimum pull requirements needed for easy activation. The pull lever latches into the alarm position and remains extended out of the housing to provide a visible indication.

Double Action Stations (Breakglass) require the operator to strike the front mounted hammer to break the glass and expose the recessed pull lever. The pull lever then operates as a single action station.

Station reset requires the use of a key to reset the manual station lever and deactivate the alarm switch. (If the break-rod is used, it must be replaced.)

Station testing is performed by physical activation of the pull lever. Electrical testing can be also performed by unlocking the station housing to activate the alarm switch.

TrueAlarm photoelectric sensors use a stable, pulsed infrared LED light source and a silicon photodiode receiver to provide consistent and accurate low power smoke sensing.

Typically duct sensor applications require less sensitive settings (such as 2.5% per foot obscuration) due to the ducts being a relative dirty environment. However, the standard seven levels of TrueAlarm sensor sensitivity are available for each individual sensor, ranging from 0.2% to 3.7% per foot of smoke obscuration. Sensitivity is selected and monitored at the fire alarm control panel.

  • Individual smoke sensitivity selection
  • Sensitivity monitoring that satisfies NFPA 72 sensitivity testing requirements
  • Peak value logging allows accurate analysis for sensitivity selection
  • Automatic, once per minute individual sensor calibration check verifies sensor integrity
  • Automatic environmental compensation
  • Smoke sensitivity is displayed in percent per foot
  • Ability to display and print detailed sensor information in plain English language
  • Relays of model 4098-9756 are under panel control for ON, OFF, or override
