Safety
ESD Precaution
Please note that while the B450 comes in a plastic case, and is protected from ESD, the plugin cellular communicator (B44x) does not. All plug-in cellular communicator components may
potentially be exposed to finger touches - therefore extra attention must be paid to ESD
(electrostatic discharge) precaution. Make sure there is no static interference when using the
board. Appropriate ESD protections must be taken and wearing electrostatic equipment is
recommended, such as anti-static wrist strap.
ESD damage can range from subtle performance degradation to complete device failure.
Precision integrated circuits may be more susceptible to damage because very small
parametric changes could cause the device not to meet its published specifications.
Warning!
!
Failure to follow these instructions can result in a failure to initiate alarm conditions. Bosch
Security Systems, Inc. is not responsible for improperly installed, tested, or maintained
devices. Follow these instructions to avoid personal injury and damage to the equipment.
Notice!
Inform the operator and the local authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) before installing the
module in an existing system.
Disconnect all power to the control panel before installing the module.

Mount the module in the enclosure
Notice!
UL requires that for security installations, the B450 module be installed in a UL Listed
enclosure with a tamper.
Notice!
If you are not using the interconnect cable, it is recommended to wire the B450 module to
the compatible control panel via the terminal strip prior to mounting the B450 into the
enclosure. Failure to do so will complicate the mounting procedure.
Mount the B450 Conettix Plug-in Communicator Interface using the interior wall of the
enclosure’s 3-hole mounting pattern and the supplied mounting screws.
You must mount the module in the control panel enclosure, or in a UL listed enclosure.
All communicators shall be housed in tampered enclosures. If the unit is used in a commercial
burglar environment, and is enclosed in a commercial enclosure, that enclosure must be
tampered.
If the installation is a local or police station connection, then the B450 must be mounted
inside an attack resistant enclosure.

Configuration
Notice!
Power up the system prior to the configuration workflows described in this chapter.
You can configure the B450 using one of the methods described in this section for your
control panel type.
5.1
Plug and Play configuration
When installing under the following conditions, the B450 needs no further configuration:
5.2
–
AES encryption is not required.
–
Low signal delay can be no more than 200 sec.
Configuration for SDI2 control panels
Notice!
By default, when connecting a field replacement B450 to an existing SDI2 control panel, the
control panel overrides some of the module settings such as; TCP/UDP Port Number, AES
Encryption, Tamper, Panel Programming, IPv4 DNS Server IP Address, Alternate IPv4 DNS
Server IP Address, and TCP Keep Alive Time. To keep custom module settings when you
connect a module to a configured control panel, you must disable Panel Programming prior to
connecting to the SDI2 bus. This is accomplished by using either USB, or SMS configuration.
If the SDI2 control panel is not defaulted, the panel sends the network configuration
parameters to the B450.
Address-only configuration conditions
An SDI2 control panel automatically configures a newly connected module.
1.
If the control panel is not at factory default, it transfers the configuration settings in the

Observe the LEDs on the B450. When the Transmit (TX) and Receive (RX) LEDs will flash
in unison at a 1 second interval indicating a successful SMS was received. If the SMS was
received but was not valid the Transmit (TX) and Receive (RX) LEDs will alternate flashing
at 1/2 second interval. Both flashing patterns will continue until the bus address switch is
moved from position "0.”
Notice!
If the LEDs indicate an invalid SMS, repeat the steps in Enter CONFIG MODE.
Refer to the tables in Maintenance and troubleshooting, page 39 section for more information
on LED descriptions. Ensure that your configuration SMS contains the correct information, as
well as sending the SMS to the correct phone number for the module, or use the USB

Show the firmware version
To show the firmware version using an LED flash pattern:
–
the optional tamper switch is installed:
With the enclosure door open, activate the tamper switch.
–
If the optional tamper switch is NOT installed:
Momentarily short the tamper pins.
When the tamper switch is activated (open to closed), the heartbeat LED stays OFF for 3 sec
before indicating the firmware version. The LED pulses the major, minor, and micro digits of
the firmware version, with a 1 sec pause after each digit.
The following is an example: The version 1.4.3 would be shown as LED flashes:
[3 second pause] *__****__*** [3 second pause, then normal operation].
Figure 6.1: Firmware LED flash patterns example
6.3
Diagnostic log
The Diagnostic Log option is used in the event of an intermittent service outage, or
communication error, in which a diagnostic log can be generated from the B450 menu options.
The generated diagnostic log file is used by TECHNICAL SUPPORT to determine how often a
persistent problem occurs, as well as detailed network configuration settings associated to
the module during the time of the reported problem.
Generate the diagnostic log only when directed by TECHNICAL SUPPORT.
6.4
Understanding network polling
Plan carefully when programming the control panel poll time, ACK wait times, retries, and
D6x00 Receiver poll and supervision time. Having the wrong or improper control panel
settings could cause trouble conditions when the network carrier performs maintenance, and
increased data volumes that could effect your monthly cost. Your settings for these
parameters determine how the system works, but depend on the security level needed.
For more information regarding proper data plans and installation parameters related to
network polling, refer to Bosch Cellular Service User Guide (P/N: F01U273558).
