2013 NFPA 72®: Fire Alarm Circuits Self-Guided Online Course

Here’s your comprehensive introduction to fire alarm circuits, fire alarm power circuits, and today’s NFPA 72® and NEC® rules. Course 4 in the NFPA 72 Online Course SeriesFire Alarm Circuits — covers the various types of circuits used for fire detection and alarm systems. Working online at your own pace, you’ll learn about the three basic fire alarm circuits that are used to connect initiating devices and notification appliances to fire alarm control units and that are used to interconnect different control units in the same system. Curriculum based on the latest NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code covers control circuits that are used to trigger other emergency control functions. The Fire Alarm Circuits course also addresses fire alarm power circuits, which can provide power to certain types of detectors, relays, or other devices.

2013 NFPA 72®: Inspection, Testing, and Maintenance of Fire Alarm Systems Self-Guided Online Course

Learn how to apply 2013 NFPA 72® ITM requirements and ensure fire alarm and emergency systems you can depend on. Proper ITM is critical to signaling system effectiveness. Course 6 in the NFPA 72 Online Course SeriesInspection, Testing, and Maintenance — covers Code requirements for inspecting, testing, and maintaining fire alarm systems. The lessons review general provisions in NFPA 72: National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code involving management of inspections, tests, and system impairments. The training also addresses personnel responsibilities and qualifications. Learn how the Code requirements for acceptance, periodic inspections, and tests differ from one another. These differences result in specific qualification requirements for the persons doing the work. In this course, you’ll also learn how to navigate NFPA 72 to locate specific requirements and frequencies for the testing and visual inspection of fire detection and alarm system components.

2013 NFPA 72®: Notification Appliances Self-Guided Online Course

Based on the 2013 NFPA 72®, the new Notification Appliances Online Course covers both audible and visible notification appliances. Audible and visible notification can be used to trigger the desired occupant behavior, so the success of every system depends on their correct application. Course 3 in the NFPA 72 Online Course SeriesNotification Appliances — covers appliances that are used to alert and inform building occupants and fire alarm system users. Along the way, you will learn some special terminology used for audible signaling and for visible signaling. When discussing audible and visible signaling, the lessons will cover requirements for both public mode and for private mode notification. This course will also provide an overview of other types of notification appliances that you might use in special applications.

Active Energy Efficiency Using Speed Control

Many motors only have two settings: on and off. They operate at constant speed. If a motor turning at constant speed is driving a device or process that requires less output, adjustments are required to achieve the desired output level. This adjustment is often achieved by letting the motor run at full speed, while using downstream devices to block part of the output.

This is like driving your car by having one foot fully depressing the accelerator pedal, and the other on the brake to constantly control the speed. It sounds absurd, but this is still one of the most common control methods. An estimated 60% of motors are not speed controlled.

The focus of this course is to explore the different ways we can control motor speed efficiently and with minimal physical stress on equipment. In addition, we’ll discuss other advantages such as controlled starting and regulated torque.
