This is the GE NX-6V2-Control Panel Installation Instructions.
Installations should only be done by trained professionals.
Use this document to install the system with default settings
that comply with UL requirements.
To install the keypad, other peripherals, and sensors, refer to
the documentation for those devices.
Table 2 describes the panel terminals.
Installation
There are four slots for board insertions inside the metal
enclosure, two on the top and two on the bottom. These allow
the PC board to be positioned vertically (Figure 1). When you
slide the board between the grooves of the slots, make sure
the terminal strip is toward the front opening (toward you) to
allow for the wire connections.

These products have not been tested and approved by Underwriters Laboratories, In.
These wireless devices are UL listed only for residential applications.
Note: The NX-6V2 control panel sends a trouble condition once each
hour if it senses that no devices have been enrolled. This report
shows expander trouble--device zero (0).
Control panel programming
Programming the control panel requires you to enter
program mode, select the module to program, program a
location, and then exit the location and program mode.
Enter program mode
To enter program mode, do the following:
1. Press ∗, 8. The five function LEDs (Stay, Chime, Exit,
Bypass, and Cancel) begin flashing.
2. Enter the go to program code (default is 9, 7, 1, 3). If the
go to program code entry is valid, the Service LED
flashes, and the five function LEDs illuminate. You are
now in program mode and can select the module to
program.
Program a location
Once you enter the module number, the Armed LED illuminates, indicating the keypad is waiting for you to enter a
programming location. To program a location, do the
following:
1. To access any location, enter the desired programming
location, followed by #. If the location is a valid location,
the Armed LED extinguishes, the Ready LED illuminates,
and the binary data for the first segment of the location
is shown by the Zone LEDs.
2. While entering new data, the Ready LED begins flashing
to indicate a data change in process.
3. Press ∗ to store the newly entered data. The keypad
advances to the next segment and displays its data.
Repeat this procedure until the last segment is reached.
4. To move to another location after exiting a location
(Armed LED illuminated):
• Press the Police key for the next sequential location.
• Press the Fire key for the previous location.
• Press the Medical key for the same location.
5. To review the data in a specific location, repeat the
above procedure, pressing ∗ but with no numeric data
entry. Each time you press ∗, the programming data of
the next segment displays.
Exit a location
To exit the current programming location, do the following:
1. Press the ∗ key. The Ready LED goes off and the Armed
LED goes on. You must press the ∗ key to save the data.
2. To exit before the last segment, press # (Armed LED illuminates).
You are now ready to enter another programming location. If
you attempt to program an invalid entry for a particular
segment, the keypad beeps three times indicating an error
and remains in that segment awaiting a valid entry.
Exit program mode
To exit program mode, do the following:
1. When you have completed all programming, press Exit
to leave the selected module.
2. If there is another module to be programmed, select it by
entering its address, followed by #. The procedure for
programming these devices is the same as for the
control panel, except the locations are for the module
selected.
3. If no additional modules are to be programmed, press
Exit again to leave program mode.
3
Loading factory defaults
To load factory defaults, enter program mode, enter the
device address and number and then enter 9, 1, 0, #. The
keypad beeps three times indicating that loading is in
progress. The process takes about six seconds. You cannot
exit the location until loading is completed.
Enrolling modules and keypads
The NX-6V2 automatically finds and stores all keypads, zone
expanders, wireless receivers, and other modules connected
to the data terminal into the NX-6V2 memory. This allows the
modules to be supervised by the control panel.
To enroll the modules, do the following:
1. Enter program mode and program the desired settings
for each module.
2. When you exit program mode, the NX-6V2 automatically
enrolls the devices. The enrolling process takes about 12
seconds, during which time the Service LED illuminates.
If a speaker is attached to the NX-6V2, it clicks at this
time. If a siren or bell is attached to the NX-6V2, it sounds
for about one second. If the module is not detected, the
Service LED illuminates.
Note: User codes are not accepted during the enrolling
process.
Quick start programming locations
For most routine installations, the quick start locations allow
you to enable a majority of the options available with the NX6V2 (when communicating in Contact ID or SIA formats). The
quick start locations include:
• Location 0 - Phone 1
• Location 1 - Phone 1 account code
• Location 2 - Phone 1 communicator format
• Location 3 - Phone 1 dial attempts/backup control
Location 0 - Phone 1
Location 0 has 20 segments of numerical data. Use this location to program phone 1. The default for each segment is 14.
• To program a delay of four seconds, enter 13 in the
appropriate segment.
• To program tone dialing, enter 15 in the segment where
tone dialing begins.
• If the entire number is tone dialing, enter 15 in the first
segment.
• Enter 11 for a *, and 12 for a #.
CAUTION: A call-waiting cancel on a noncall-waiting
line prevents successful connection to the central
station.
Location 1 - Phone 1 account code
Location 1 has six segments of numerical data. Use this location to program the account code sent when phone 1 is
dialed. The default for each segment is 10. Program a 10 in
the segment immediately after the last digit of the account
code. If the account code is six digits long, program all six
segments.
Location 2 - Phone 1 communicator format
Location 2 has one segment of numerical data. Use this location to program the communicator format used to transmit
to the receiver connected to phone 1. Refer to your central
station receiver documentation to determine which format is
compatible. Table 4 describes the formats for this location. If
you need a format other than those listed, review the override options described in Location 18 - Custom communicator
format on page 4 to build the appropriate format. Program a
15 to create a special format (in addition to the entries in
Location 18). The default is 0. If this location contains a 0, the
built-in communicator is disabled and the NX-6V2 functions
as a local-only control.

Additional UL 609 installation requirements
The alarm housing for a mercantile alarm system without a
remote alarm transmission connection shall be mounted on
the outside of the building, visible from a public street or
highway. It shall be accessible for examination and repair. It
shall also be located not more than four stories above the
street level unless:
a) A second alarm sounding device and housing, intended for
outside service is mounted adjacent to the premises or area
of the building in which the alarm system is installed or
b) A second alarm sounding device, intended for inside
service is mounted within the premises.
In either case, the outside alarm sounding device and
housing may be mounted as high as the seventh floor.
Additional UL 365 installation requirements
In a mercantile burglar alarm system, a mercantile alarm
sounding device located within a building, but outside the
protected area, is acceptable, provided it is rated for outside
service and alarm conditions are transmitted to:
a) The dispatch location of the law enforcement agency
having jurisdiction over the protected property or
b) A central station or residential monitoring station
complying with the Standard for Central-Station Alarm
Services, UL 827.
In a mercantile burglar alarm system, an alarm sounding
device located within the area of greatest protection, or
outside the area of greatest protection but within an area
protected by an alarm system and that shares a common
control unit with the system installed in the area of greatest
protection, is acceptable provided it is rated for inside service
and alarm conditions are transmitted to:
a) The dispatch location of the law enforcement agency
having jurisdiction over the protected property or
b) A central station or residential monitoring station
complying with the Standard for Central-Station Alarm
Services, UL 827. An inside sounding device shall be mounted
at least 10 feet (3.05 m) above the floor or at the surfce of the
ceiling. When there is fixed construction within the area that
could provide access for an intruder, the alarm sounding
device shall also be mounted at least 4 feet (1.2 m), as
measured horizontally, away from the edges of the fixed
construction or at least 10 feet (3.05 m) above it so as to minimize access by an intruder.
