           Release Stations. Operation of a Manual Release Station shall cause all alarm and shutdown
           devices to operate as if the system had operated automatically and shall cause an immediate
           activation of the fire extinguishing system. Operation of a Manual Release Station shall
           override the operation of all Abort switches.
        L. The system control equipment shall be capable of all functions associated with automatically
           and manually discharging the dry chemical agent from all cylinder-and-valve assemblies,
           including automatic shutdown of the heat source or fuel and electrical power to all protected
           areas upon system discharge.
        M. The system control equipment shall include a control head, model XV, and actuator(s) for
           each system cylinder valve. The control head can attach with two bolts to an actuator or can
           be wall mounted, whichever is applicable. All mechanical components of the control heads
           shall be enclosed. No exposed levers, except for the local manual actuation handle, will be
           permitted.
