Standard
Manager
The FULLSET operation fully sets the alarm system
and provides full protection to a building (opening of
any alarm zones activates the alarm).
On selecting FULLSET, the buzzer sounds and the
keypad display counts down the exit time period. Exit
the building before this time period has expired.
When the exit time period has expired, the system is
set and opening of entry/exit zones starts the entry
timer. If the system is not Unset before the entry timer
expires, the alarm is activated.
Partset A
Standard
Manager
The PARTSET A option provides perimeter protection
to a building while allowing free movement through the
exit and access areas.
Zones that have been classified as EXCLUDE A
remain unprotected in this mode. By default, there is no

mode. An exit timer can be applied to this mode by
enabling the Partset A timed variable.
Partset B
Standard
Manager
The PARTSET B option applies protection to all zones
except those that have been classified as EXCLUDE B.
By default there is no exit time; the system sets
instantly on selection of this mode. An exit timer can be
applied to this mode by enabling the Partset B timed
variable.
Forceset
Standard
Manager
The FORCESET option is presented on the keypad

Use of this feature to deactivate faulty or open zones
should be considered carefully; once a zone is isolated,
it is ignored by the system and could be overlooked
when setting the system in the future, compromising
the security of the premises.
Inhibit
Standard
Manager
Inhibiting a zone [➙ 28] deactivates that zone for one
alarm set period. Only alarm, entry/exit, fire exit and
