5 Introduction
The SPC series controller is a true hybrid controller with 8 on-board wired zones
that communicate with intruder devices.
The flexible design of the controller allows the functional components
(PSTN/GSM/RF) to be mixed and matched, improving the capability of the system.
Using this approach, an installer can ensure that an efficient installation with
minimal wiring is achieved.

8 Door Controller
The two door controller can handle up to two doors and two card readers.
Configuration of the operation mode is done via the two door I/Os. Each of the two
door I/Os is responsible for the functionality of two inputs and one output of the
door controller. A specific door number can be assigned to a door I/O, which gives
the inputs and output predefined functionality. If no door number is assigned to
neither of the door I/Os (option “Zones” is selected), the inputs and outputs of the
door controller can be used like inputs and outputs on the control panel. Thus, no
access functionality is available on this two door controller.
If a door number is assigned only to the first door I/O of the two door controller, the
first reader is used as entry reader for this door. If a second reader is available, it is
used as exit reader for the configured door. Two inputs and one output have
predefined functionality and two inputs and one output can be configured by the
user. Additionally, the door position sensor input of the first door can be used as
intrusion zone but only with limited functionality.
If a door number is assigned to each of the the two door I/Os, the two doors are
handled independently. The first card reader is used as entry reader for the first
door and the second card reader is used as entry reader for the second door. All
inputs and outputs have predefined functionality. The door position sensor inputs of
the two doors can additionally be used as intrusion zones but only with limited
functionality.
Each free zone number can be assigned to the zones. But the assignment is not
fix. If number 9 was assigned to a zone, the zone and an input expander with the
address 1 is connected to the X-Bus (which is using the zone numbers 9-16).The
assigned zone from the two door controller will be moved to the next free zone
number. Configuration will be adapted accordingly.

Wiring the X-BUS interface
The X-BUS interface provides for the connection of expanders to the controller.
The X-BUS can be wired in a number of different configurations depending on the
installation requirements. The X-BUS interface baud rate is 307 kb.
NOTICE
The X-BUS is an RS-485 bus with a baud rate of 307 kb. The full performance is
only supported in loop [➙ 41] and spur [➙ 42] wiring configuration (best signal
quality due to daisy chain of isolated sections with 1 transmitter / 1 receiver and
balanced terminating resistors on each end).
The performance in star [➙ 43] or multi-drop [➙ 43] configuration wiring is limited
due to non optimal conditions of the RS-485 bus specification (reduced signal
quality due to multiple receivers / transmitters in parallel with unbalanced
terminating resistors).
NOTICE
It’s strongly recommended to use loop [➙ 41] or spur [➙ 42] configuration.
The table below shows the maximum distances between controller / expander or
expander / expander for all cable types in loop and spur configuration.

Wiring the system
Wiring the X-BUS interface
The loop (or ring) cabling method offers the highest security by providing fault
tolerant communications on the X-BUS. All keypads and expanders are supervised
and in case of a X-BUS fault or break, the system continues to operate and all
detectors are monitored. This is achieved by connecting 1A, 1B on the controller to
2A, 2B on the first keypad or expander. The wiring continues with connection 1A,
1B to 2A, 2B on the next expander and so on to the last keypad or expander. The
last connection is 1A, 1B of the last expander to 2A, 2B of the controller. See wiring
configuration in the figure below.

9.1.2
Spur configuration
NOTICE
SPC52xx/53xx/63xx supports 2 spurs (2 X-BUS ports).
SPC42xx/43xx supports 1 spur (1 X-BUS port).
NOTICE
All expanders/keypads are fitted with a termination jumper by default. In spur
configuration it is imperative to have these jumpers fitted.
The spur (or open loop) cabling method offers a high level of fault tolerance and
may be more convenient on certain installations. In the case of a X-BUS fault or
break, all expanders and detectors up to the fault continue to be supervised.
In this configuration, the SPC controller uses a single the X-BUS port (1A/1B or
2A/2B) to support a group of expanders. See wiring configuration in the figure
below. The last expander in an open loop configuration is not wired back to the
controller and can be identified by the fast LED flashing light (one flash every 0.2
seconds approx) when in Full Engineer programming.
In automatic mode, the expander numbering commences at the expander nearest
to the controller and ends with the expander connected farthest from the controller.
E.g. if 6 expanders are connected in an open loop configuration, then the nearest
expander on the X-BUS connection is expander 1, the second nearest expander is
2, etc. ending with the expander wired farthest from the controller, which is
expander 6.

NOTICE
For star and multi-drop wiring
It’s not recommended to use shielded cables due to disadvantageous electrical
characteristics (higher capacitance) in star and multi-drop wiring configuration.
However, if shielding is required (i.e. sites with high electric field interference) a
new wiring in proper spur or loop configuration with appropriate installation cable
configuration has to be done.
9.1.5
Cable Map
Identification and numbering order for expanders and keypads differ depending on
automatic or manual addressing of the expanders. For information on manual and
automatic configuration, see page [➙ 82].
For a system with manual addressing, expanders and keypads have a separate
numbering sequence and are defined by the engineer manually. I.e., expanders
are numbered 01, 02, 03, and so on as desired. Using same numbers, keypads
may be numbered as desired.
In the manual configuration, the system automatically allocates zones to each
expander. For this reason, devices with no zones, such as 8 output expanders
should be addressed last.
For a system with automatic addressing, expanders and keypads belong to the
same numbering group and are assigned by the controller. I.e., expanders and
keypads are together numbered 01, 02, 03, in the order that they are detected
relative to the location of the controller.
9.2
Wiring of branch expander
The wiring of the X-BUS interface with 8 terminals 1A/1B to 4A/4B provides for the
connection of an additional branch expander.

Powering up the SPC controller
Powering from battery only
10 Powering up the SPC controller
The SPC controller has two power sources, the mains supply and the integral
standby battery. A qualified electrician should undertake connection to the mains
and the mains supply should be connected from a spur that can be isolated. See
Page [➙ 282] for full details of conductor sizes / fuse ratings etc.
The SPC should be powered from the mains first and then the internal standby
battery. For compliance to EN only one battery should be fitted of the appropriate
capacity.
10.1
Powering from battery only
It is recommended that when powering a system from battery only, the battery
should be in a fully charged state (>13.0 V). The system will not power up when
using a battery with less than 12 V and no mains is applied.
NOTICE
The battery will continue to power the system until deep discharge level (10.5 V to
10.8 V) has been detected. The time duration that the system will hold up on
battery will depend on the external loading and Ah rating of the battery.

CAUTION
The SPC system must be installed by an authorised installation engineer.
1. Wire the keypad to the X-BUS interface on the controller.
2. Enter Engineer Programming by entering the default Engineer PIN (1111). For
more details, see Engineering PINs [➙ 68].
12.1
Engineer modes
The SPC system works under 2 programming modes for authorised installation
engineers: Full and Soft. In the browser, log off is only permitted in Soft Engineer
mode.
Full Engineer Mode
All alerts, faults and tampers must first be isolated or cleared before exit from the
Full Engineer mode is allowed.
Full Engineer mode provides extensive programming functionality. However,
programming in Full Engineer mode disables all alarm settings, reports and output
programming for the system. For full review of Full Engineer menu options, refer to
page [➙ 75].
[Soft] Engineer mode
Soft Engineer mode provides fewer programming functions and does not affect any
outputs programmed in the system. For full review of [Soft] Engineer menu options,
refer to page [➙ 74].
12.1.1
Engineer PINs
The start up Engineer default programming PIN is ‘1111’.
If an installation is changed from Grade 2 to Grade 3 at any time after start-up, all
PINs are prefixed with a 0. Therefore, the default Engineer PIN will be ‘01111’.
Increasing the number of digits for the PIN (see System Options [➙ 154]) will add
the relevant number of zeros to the front of an existing PIN (for example, 001111
for a 6 digit PIN)
12.2
Programming tools
Keypad
The keypad is quick onsite navigation of menus and programming. The authorised
installation engineer must set initial default configurations using the keypad.
Programming of proximity card/device reader and assignment to users also must
be done using the keypad.

Creating system users
By default the SPC system only allows engineer access on the system. The
engineer must create a user profile to allow on-site users to set, unset, and perform
basic operations on the system as required. The system allows all user PINs within
the code range i.e. if a 4 digit code is used then all user PINs between 0000 and
9999 would be permissible.
Only a MANAGER type user has the ability to grant manufacturer access to the
system (i.e. allow a firmware upgrade of the panel). If a user is typically going to
be upgrading firmware remotely, create a MANAGER type user for that purpose.
To create a user:
1. Enter the Engineer Programming PIN (Default PIN is 1111. See Engineering
PINs [➙ 68]).
2. Scroll to USERS.
3. Press SELECT.
 The option to ADD a user is displayed.
4. Press SELECT.
 The system generates and displays next available user name.
5. Press SELECT to use the default name and numbers displayed, or use the
keypad to enter a customized user name.
6. Press SELECT.
 There are 3 types of users available: STANDARD USER, MANAGER, or

For a system with automatic addressing, expanders and keypads belong to the
same numbering sequence. E.g. expanders and keypads are automatically
numbered 01, 02, 03, etc., by the controller in the order in which they are detected,
e.g. its relevant location to controller. In this configuration, zones are allocated to
each input expander.
Automatically addressed expanders are not supported by SPC41xx.

ADRESSING MODE
X-BUS addressing can be configured in one of the 2 following ways:
Automatic addressing
Automatic addressing can be done with a combination of rotary switch and without
rotary switch expanders. With automatic addressing, the controller over-rides rotary
switches and automatically assigns expanders and keypads in the system unique
IDs in sequential order
Manual addressing
Manual addressing allows manual determination of each expander/keypad ID in a
system. All devices should be installed where required and each ID set manually
using the rotary switches.
If 2 devices of a kind (e.g. expanders) are set to same ID, upon configuration,
both expanders beep and the flashing LED indicates conflict. Reset the switches
and the system rescans.
On a device, if both rotary switches are set to zero (0, 0), the full configuration
becomes an automatic addressing configuration.
To select the ADDRESS MODE:
1. Scroll to ADDRESS MODE.

SUPERVISE
The WPA may be configured to send periodic supervision signals. If
supervision is enabled on the WPA (with the jumper), the WPA sends
out a supervision message about every 7.5 minutes. The time
between messages is randomized to decrease the chances of
collision with other WPAs.
The supervision function also needs to be enabled on the panel for
the particular WPA for correct supervision operation. If the panel
does not get a supervision signal, it raises an alarm that is shown in
the keypad and logged.
If supervision is not enabled, the WPA sends out a supervision
message about every 24 hours to transmit the WPA battery status to
the panel. This message is also randomized to decrease the chances
of collision with other WPAs.
Select ENABLE if supervision has been enabled for that particular
WPA.

OUTPUTS
Each zone type on the SPC system has an associated output type (an internal flag
or indicator). When a zone type is activated, i.e. a door or window opens, smoke is
detected, an alarm is detected, etc., the corresponding output is activated.
1. Scroll to OUTPUTS and press SELECT.
2. Scroll to CONTROLLER or EXPANDER and press SELECT.
3. Scroll to the expander/output to be programmed and press SELECT.
 If the output activations are recorded in the system event log (i.e. enabled,

Determines the output type; see the table in page [➙ 98], for a description of output
types.
OUTPUT
MODE
Determines the style of the output: continuous, momentary or pulsed.
POLARITY
Determines whether the output is activated on a positive or negative polarity.
LOG
Determines if system log is enabled or disabled.
For the output test procedure, see page [➙ 106].
14.9.1
Outputs types and output ports
Each output type can be assigned to one of the 6 physical output ports on the SPC
controller or to an output on one of the connected expanders. Output types that are
not assigned to physical outputs act as indicators of events on the system and may
be logged and/or reported to remote central stations if required.
The output ports on the expanders are all single pole relay type outputs (NO, COM,
NC); therefore, output devices may need external power sources to activate if they
are wired to expander outputs.
The activation of a particular output type depends on the zone type (see page [➙
284]) or alert condition that triggered the activation. If multiple areas are defined on
the system then the outputs on the SPC are grouped into system outputs and area
outputs; the system outputs are activated to indicate a system wide event (e.g.
mains fault) whereas the area outputs indicate events detected in one or more of
the defined areas on the system. Each area has its own set of area outputs; if the
area is a common area for other areas, then its outputs will indicate the state of all
the areas it is common for, including its own state. For example, if Area 1 is
common for Area 2 and 3, and Area 2 Ext. Bell is active, then the Area 1 Ext Bell
output is also active.
Some output types can only indicate system wide events (no specific area
events). Please refer to the table below for further information.

as an Alarm zone triggers an alarm in Fullset or Partset modes.
External Bell Strobe
This output type is used to activate the strobe on the system external bell and is active
when any area strobe is active. By default, this output is assigned to the strobe relay
output (Output 3) on the Controller board (NO, COM, NC).
Note: An external bell strobe output is automatically activated whenever a zone
programmed as an alarm zone triggers an alarm in Fullset or Partset modes. The
external bell strobe activates on a ’Fail to Set’ condition if the strobe on the ’Fail to Set’
option is checked in system options.
Internal Bell
This output type is used to activate the internal bell and is active when any area
Internal Bell is active. By default, this output is assigned to the second output on the
controller board (INT+, INT-).

Garda:
This will enforce the policies for confirmed alarms
required by the Irish Garda. The requirement stipulates
that an alarm will be deemed to be a confirmed alarm
as soon as a second zone alarm is activated on the
system within the one alarm set period. The Garda
confirmation option is automatically set whenever the
Standards -> Region option is set to Ireland.

requirements, and is a specific requirement for UK
Commercial installations. The requirement stipulates
that an alarm will only be deemed to be a confirmed
alarm if it meets the following condition:
After an initial zone alarm has been activated and
before the alarm confirmation time has expired, a
second zone alarm is activated. The alarm confirmation
time must be between 30 and 60 minutes. (See Timers
[➙ 160])
If a second zone alarm is not activated within the Alarm
confirmation time, then the first zone alarm will be
inhibited. The DD243 confirmation option is
automatically set whenever the Standards -> Region
option is set to UK.

EN-50131-9
This will enforce compliance with the EN-50131-9
standard and the Spanish “INT/316/2011 Order of 1
February on the operation of alarm systems in the field
of private security”. This requirement stipulates that an
alarm will only be deemed to be a confirmed alarm if it
meets the following conditions:
- 3 zone activations in 30 minutes (default), whereby
two activations may come from the same device if the
activations differ in type, i.e. alarm / tamper.
- 1 Alarm activation followed by an ATS[1] Fault within
30 minutes (default).
- ATS fault followed by a tamper or alarm condition
within 30 minutes (default).
If the 30 minutes expires and the zone is restored to its
normal physical state, then the zone’s alerts will be
restored if a level 2 user can restore this alert. In this
case, the zone will accept a new alert condition which
will cause a new activation.
Alternatively, if the zone has not been restored to its
normal physical state then that zone will be inhibited if
that zone is allowed to be inhibited.
If an alert (ATS) reoccurs after the 30 minute window
(default), then the 30 minute timer will restart.
The EN50131-9 confirmation option is automatically set
whenever the Standards -> Region option is set to
Spain.
Auto Restore
Enable this feature to automatically restore alerts on the
system i.e. when the open zone that triggered an alarm is
closed, a manual restore operation on the keypad/browser is
not required. If disabled it prevents the user from restoring
alerts by resetting the input that triggered the alert.

Alarm on Exit
If enabled, an alarm is raised if any entry/exit zone is still
open when the exit timer expires. If unchecked, the system
will fail to set if any entry/exit zone is still open.
Note: Only available when ‘Unrestricted’ grade is selected in

Each delay is determined by the amount configured in the Delay Interval
parameter, and the Delay Counter parameter determines the number of times that
setting can be delayed. A user needs the correct value in the Auto Set Delay in
order to use this feature.
There are three ways to delay setting:
1. Entering the PIN on the keypad.
DELAY is a menu option on the standard keypad. The buttons at the top of the
comfort keypad are used to operate the delay feature
2. Using the keyswitch.
Turning the key to the right delays setting the system by the configured delay if
the maximum number of times that setting can be delayed (Delay Counter) has
not been exceeded. Turning the key to the left sets the delay to three minutes
(non-configurable). This can be done regardless of how many times setting
was delayed.
3. Using a FOB, WPA or button which activates a Delay Autoset trigger action.

Outputs types and output ports
Each output type can be assigned to one of the 6 physical output ports on the SPC
controller or to an output on one of the connected expanders. Output types that are
not assigned to physical outputs act as indicators of events on the system and may
be logged and/or reported to remote central stations if required.
The output ports on the expanders are all single pole relay type outputs (NO, COM,
NC); therefore, output devices may need external power sources to activate if they
are wired to expander outputs.
The activation of a particular output type depends on the zone type (see page [➙
284]) or alert condition that triggered the activation. If multiple areas are defined on
the system then the outputs on the SPC are grouped into system outputs and area
outputs; the system outputs are activated to indicate a system wide event (e.g.
mains fault) whereas the area outputs indicate events detected in one or more of
the defined areas on the system. Each area has its own set of area outputs; if the
area is a common area for other areas, then its outputs will indicate the state of all
the areas it is common for, including its own state. For example, if Area 1 is
common for Area 2 and 3, and Area 2 Ext. Bell is active, then the Area 1 Ext Bell
output is also active.
Some output types can only indicate system wide events (no specific area
events). Please refer to the table below for further information.
Output Type
Description
External Bell
This output type is used to activate the system external bell and is active when any
Area External Bell is active. By default, this output is assigned to the first output on the
controller board (EXT+, EXT-).
Note: An external bell output is automatically activated whenever a zone programmed
as an Alarm zone triggers an alarm in Fullset or Partset modes.
External Bell Strobe
This output type is used to activate the strobe on the system external bell and is active
when any area strobe is active. By default, this output is assigned to the strobe relay
output (Output 3) on the Controller board (NO, COM, NC).
Note: An external bell strobe output is automatically activated whenever a zone
programmed as an alarm zone triggers an alarm in Fullset or Partset modes. The
external bell strobe activates on a ’Fail to Set’ condition if the strobe on the ’Fail to Set’
option is checked in system options.
Internal Bell
This output type is used to activate the internal bell and is active when any area
Internal Bell is active. By default, this output is assigned to the second output on the
controller board (INT+, INT-).
Note: An internal bell output is automatically activated whenever a zone programmed
as an Alarm zone type triggers an alarm in Fullset or Partset modes. The internal Bell
activates on a ’Fail to Set’ condition if the Bell on the ’Fail to Set’ option is checked in
system options.
Alarm
This output turns on following alarm zone activation on the system or from any area
defined on the system.
Alarm Confirmed
This output turns on when an alarm has been confirmed. An alarm is confirmed when 2
independent zones on the system (or within the same Area) activate within a set time
period).

sensors have a small vibrator that will be attached to the same wall as the sensor and
is wired to an output on the panel or one of its expanders. During the test, the panel
waits up to 30 seconds for the seismic zone to open. If it does not open, the test fails. If
it opens within 30 seconds the panel then waits for the zone to close within 10 seconds.
If that doesn’t happen, the test fails. The panel then waits a further 2 seconds before
reporting the test result. The result of the test, either manual or automatic, is stored in

In loop configuration, each expander is numbered consecutively from the first
(expander connected to the 1A 1B on the controller) to the last (expander
connected to the 2A 2B on the controller).
Example for SPC63xx: Expanders, when numbered 1 through 63, are allocated
zones (in groupings of 8) in subsequent identities of 1 to 512 (the greatest
number in zone identification is 512 for). Therefore, any expander named or

Serial ports
The SPC controller provides 2 serial ports (RS232) that offer the following
functionality:

X10: Serial port 1 is a dedicated interface that supports the X10 protocol. This
protocol allows for use of the existing power cables of a building to transport
control information to X10 devices providing the ability to trigger and monitor
these devices via the SPC Controller programming interface.

Logging of Events: The Serial port 2 interface provides the ability to connect to
a serial port on a PC or a printer. With this connection, a terminal program can
be configured to receive a log of System Events or Access Events from the
SPC controller.

System Information: Serial port 2 also provides an interface via a terminal
program that allows for the execution of a set of commands to interrogate the
controller for specific system information. This facility is available only as a tool
for debug and information purposes and should only be used by experienced
installers.


All other purposes (includes triggers, enabling of users, zones, physical
outputs, etc.)
A calendar can be used for multiple purposes with the operations differing based
on the classifications above. At any moment in time and as defined in the settings,

Adding / Editing a calendar
1. Select Settings > Advanced > Calendars > Add.
 The following window will be displayed:
2. Provide description for name of calendar (max. 16 characters)
Week Types
Calendars are configured using Week Types. There is a system maximum number
of 64 calendar configurations. Three Week Types may be defined for calendar use.
Week Types may be assigned to any week of the year. However, not all weeks
must have a Week Type (i.e. a Week Type may be ‘None’).
Each week of the year is assigned an ordinal number. Depending on the fall of
days within a month, there may be 52 or 53 weeks in one year. The SPC calendar
implementation conforms to the ISO8601international standard.
1. Click Week Types.
2. Provide the desired times for setting / unsetting or desired times for triggers.
Use time guidelines for Auto Set / Unset (see page [➙ 239]), or for All Other
Purposes (see page [➙ 239]).

7. Select the desired week type (ex. Type 2) from the pull down menu for the
scheduled week (ex.Week 51).
8. Click Save
9. Click Back.
Exceptions
Exceptions are configurations that apply exclusively to a period of time, with a start
and end date, defined as day/month/year. There is a system maximum of 64
exceptions.
Unlike Week Types, where there are three available types within a calendar,
exceptions do not belong to any single calendar, yet are a set of dates assigned to
one or more calendars. Exceptions are only effective when assigned to a calendar.
When an exception is assigned to a calendar, the dates defined override any
configuration for that start and end date period with both dates inclusive.
Time configuration for exceptions mirrors that of weekly configuration. Set times
are interpreted according to the calendar selected. Auto-setting times are
understood as triggers, while for all other purposes, times are understood as on/off
periods.

Auto-Set and Auto-Unset
A calendar can be configured for area auto-sets or auto-unsets.
For any day of the week, a configuration can have a maximum of 4 set times and 4
unset times. Configured times use the 24 hour clock (hh:mm). If the hour is 24,
then minutes must be 00, such as midnight is 24:00. It is possible to define a set
time without an unset and vice-versa. Configured times trigger the area to either
set or unset (provided all conditions are satisfied). Times entered are not
considered as a duration of time, rather they are a point in time that said action
(set/unset) will occur. If the controller is powered up or reset, the set/unset status is
kept and subsequent set or unset times occur according to configuration.
15.13.1.3
All other purposes
Using On/Off, True/False, Active/Inactive states, these configurations are assigned
to an output that effectively turns on or off and can be configured for any day of the
week. Configurations have a maximum of 4 set times and 4 unset times.
Configured times use the 24 hour clock (hh:mm). If the hour is 24, then minutes
must be 00, such as midnight is 24:00. Each configuration consists of a pairing of
settings for On/Off, True/False, Active/Inactive states. Any one setting without a
respective corresponding setting is silently disregarded.
15.13.2
Triggers
A trigger is a system state (e.g. zone closing / time / system event (alarm) etc.) that
can be used as inputs to the Cause & Effects. The triggers can be logically
assigned together using the logical operators and / or to create user outputs. The
system supports up to a maximum of 1000 triggers across all its Cause & Effects
system.

visual (strobe) and audible (bell) indication of an intrusion to the premises or
building.
By default, the first 3 physical outputs on the SPC controller are assigned to the
external bell, internal bell, and external bell strobe. When activated, these 3
outputs together provide sufficient warning of an alarm condition to persons located
inside or within the immediate environment of the building or premises where the
intrusion has taken place.
Full and local alarms on the SPC activate the following physical outputs:

Controller Output 1: External Bell

Controller Output 2: Internal Bell

Controller Output 3: Strobe
For details on how to wire the bells and strobe see page [➙ 40].
A Full Alarm activation reports the alarm to the Alarm Receiving Centre (ARC) if
one has been configured on the system.
A Local Alarm activation does not attempt to call the ARC even if one has already
been configured.
A Silent Alarm activation does not activate outputs 1 – 3 (no visual or audible
indications of the alarm). The alarm event is reported to the ARC. Silent alarms are
only generated when alarm zones with the Silent attribute have been opened when
the system is set.

System examples and scenarios
When to use a common area
18 System examples and scenarios
18.1
When to use a common area
Common areas provide a convenient way of setting multiple areas within a single
installation. A user assigned to a common area has the ability to SET ALL areas
within that common area (even those areas that have not been assigned to that
user). However, the users can only UNSET areas assigned to them.
Common areas should only be used when a single keypad is installed at the
primary access location and is shared by all users within the building (defining a
common area on a system with multiple keypads in different areas is not
recommended).
Scenario: 2 departments of a business (Accounts and Sales) share a common
access point (front door)
In this case, create 3 areas on the system (Common Area, Accounts, and Sales).
The Common Area must include the main access point (front door). Assign the
zones in Accounts to Area 2 and the zones in Sales to Area 3. Install a keypad at
the front door and assign it to all 3 areas. Define 2 users (minimum) on the system,
one for each department, and assign the users to their respective areas and the
common area.
Operation: Setting the system
The Accounts Manager leaves the office at 5 pm. When he enters his code at the
keypad, the FULLSET option presents the following 3 sub-menus:

ALL AREAS: sets all areas assigned to the common area (Common Area,
Accounts, and Sales) and any additional areas assigned to the account
manager; in this case there are no additional areas. The exit timer for the front
door informs the user to exit the building.

COMMON: sets all areas assigned to the Common Area (Common Area,
Accounts and Sales) and starts the exit timer for the front door

ACCOUNTS: sets the Accounts area only; the Sales area remains unset and
access is still permitted through the front door
When the last worker in the Sales department is leaving the building, he/she closes
all doors and windows in AREA 3 and enters his/her code at the keypad. The
FULLSET option presents the following 3 sub-menus:

ALL AREAS: sets all areas assigned to the Common Area (Common area,
Accounts, and Sales) and any additional areas assigned to the sales worker; in
this case there are no additional areas. The exit timer for the front door informs
the user to exit the building.

COMMON: sets all areas assigned to the Common Area (Common Area,
Accounts, and Sales) and starts the exit timer for the front door.

SALES: sets ALL areas assigned to the Common Area (Common area,
Accounts and Sales); this is because there are no other unarmed sub-areas on
the system
Operation: Unsetting the system
When the Accounts Manager returns to open the building and enters his code on
the keypad, the UNSET option presents the following 3 sub-menus:

ALL AREAS: unsets all areas assigned to the accounts worker (Common Area,
Accounts) and any additional area assigned to the accounts worker. In this
252

System examples and scenarios
When to use a common area
18
case there are no additional areas. NOTE: The accounts worker cannot
UNSET the Sales area.

COMMON: unsets ONLY the Common Area (Reception). This provides the
option to unarm the reception area only while leaving the Accounts and Sales
offices set.

ACCOUNTS: unsets the Accounts area and the Common Area (Reception). In
this case the Sales area remains set while access is still permitted through the
front door.
Use of common areas:

Keyarm zone
If the entry/exit route in the common area is programmed as a keyarm zone, when
it is activated all areas in the Common area are SET. Deactivating the keyarm zone
UNSETs all areas in the Common Areas.

Multiple keypads
If areas assigned to the common area have their own keypads for entry/exit, it is
important that the exit times associated with those areas provide sufficient time to
allow the user to reach the common area exit. This is in case the area being armed
is the last un-armed area on the system and therefore will trigger arming of the
entire common area.
As a rule it is advisable to use common areas in installations that have only one
keypad located at the common access point, i.e. front door access to the entire
building.

20 Seismic Sensors
Vibration sensors, also called seismic sensors, are used to detect intrusion
attempts by mechanical means, such as drilling or making holes through walls or
safes.
Support for seismic sensors is available only if the installation type for the panel is
‘Financial’.
There are several ways to test seismic sensors. The simplest way to test seismic
sensors is by hitting a wall or safe and seeing if the zone opens during a walk test.
This means of testing is available with all types of seismic sensors.
If the seismic sensor is installed with a test transmitter, the following test options
are available:

Manual testing initiated at the keypad or with SPC Pro (not supported by the
browser);

Automatic testing on a periodic basis or when the panel is set using the
keypad.
The test transmitter is a small high frequency vibrator that is attached a short
distance from the sensor on the same wall. The test transmitter is wired to an
output on the panel or an expander.
Configuring Seismic Sensors in the Panel

Configure a seismic zone. Seismic sensors must be assigned to a zone. (See
Editing a Zone [➙ 165])
Using the Keypad

Select FULL ENGINEER->ZONES->(select zone)->ZONE TYPE->SEISMIC

Seismic Sensor Testing
Seismic zones must be configured in order for both manual and automatic tests to
be available. The results of either manual or automatic testing are stored in the
system event log.
During a seismic test, one or more seismic zones are tested. When a zone is
tested, all other zones in the same area are temporarily disabled as there is a
single seismic test output per area
20.1.1
Manual and Automatic Test Process
A manual or automatic test operates as follows:
264
Siemens AB
Security Products
A6V10276959
18.11.2011
Seismic Sensors
Seismic Sensor Testing
20
1. The panel activates the Seismic Test Output for the appropriate area(s) in
which the seismic zone(s) are to be tested.
2. The panel then waits for all seismic zones under test to open and then verifies
that all seismic sensors in the area enter the alarm state within the time
configured for the ‘Seismic Test Duration’. Any zone(s) that have not opened
within the maximum period are deemed to have failed the test.
3. When all seismic zones in the area are open or the maximum Seismic Test
Duration has been reached (whichever comes first), the panel will clear the
Seismic Test Output for that area.
4. The panel then waits a fixed time for all seismic detectors in the area to close.
Any zone(s) that have not closed are deemed to have failed the test.
5. The panel then waits another fixed period before reporting the test result. The
result of the test, either manual or automatic, is stored in the system event log.
The seismic output is normally high, and goes low during tests (i.e. when it is
active). If this signal is not suitable for a particular sensor then the physical output
can be configured to be inverted.
20.1.2
Automatically Testing Sensors
Seismic sensors are tested either periodically or after the system is set using the
keypad.
Periodic Automatic Testing
Periodic automatic tests are performed on all seismic zones for which automatic
tests are enabled.
Automatic tests are randomized within the configured test period and are done
independently for each area.
All seismic zones in the same area (for which automatic tests are enabled) are
tested simultaneously.
The Seismic Test Interval configuration option in the Timers [➙ 160] menu
determines the average test period for seismic sensors automatic tests. The default
value is 168 hours (7 days) and the allowed values are in the range 12 – 240
hours.
The test time is random within the specified range +/- 15%. For example, if a test is
scheduled every 24 hours, a test may be performed between 20.4 and 27.6 hours
after the last test.
A seismic test is performed after a reboot if automatic tests are enabled. If the
panel was in Full Engineer mode before reboot, then the test is performed only
after the panel is out of Full Engineer mode after a reboot.
If a seismic test fails, a Trouble event is reported (SIA code “BT”). There is also a
corresponding Restoration event (SIA code “BJ”).
Automatic Test on Setting
The option Seismic Test on Set is configurable in the System Options [➙ 154]
menu. If enabled, all seismic zones in all areas that are to be set are tested before
the usual setting sequence. This applies to keypad operation only.
While the test is being performed, ‘SEISMIC AUTOTEST’ is displayed on the
keypad. If the seismic test succeeds, the setting proceeds as normal.

test fails, then ‘SEISMIC FAIL’ will be displayed. Pressing Return displays a list of
the failed zones which can be scrolled through using the up and down arrow keys.
Depending on the Inhibit settings for the failed seismic zones and your user profile,
the following can occur:


your user profile user is configured with the Inhibit right:
Press Return on any of the failed zones.
 The message “FORCE SET ALL?” is displayed.
2. Press Return again to inhibit all seismic zones that failed the test.

set or your user profile user does not have the Inhibit right:

Press Return.
 The message ‘FAIL TO SET’ will be displayed and no areas will be set.
There is no automatic seismic test for areas that are auto-set for any reason (for
example, areas activated by a calendar or trigger). Likewise there is no automatic
seismic test when the system is set with SPC Com, with SPC Pro or the browser.
However, there is an automatic seismic test when a virtual keypad is used with
SPC Com or SPC Pro.
No event is reported if seismic testing on set fails.
The periodic automatic system test timer restarts after a test is performed after
setting.

Manually Testing Sensors
To manually test sensors, select the TEST>SEISMIC TEST option from the TEST
menu on the keypad.
A seismic manual test with the keypad can be done by the engineer in Full
Engineer mode, and also by a user of type Manager or type Standard:

An engineer is able to test all sensors in all areas configured in the system
using any keypad.

A user is able to test only the sensors in areas that are both assigned to him
and to the particular keypad he is using.

Powering expanders from the auxiliary power
terminals
The auxiliary 12 V power terminals on the SPC controller
(0 V, 12 V) share a power supply (750 mA) with the Darlington outputs (OP4, OP 5,
OP6) enabling connection to a number of external devices and/or expanders to the
Controller.
To calculate the number of expanders/keypads that can safely be powered from
the auxiliary power terminals, add the total maximum current draw from all of the
expanders/keypads to be powered and determine if this total is less than 750 mA.
Please refer to corresponding installation instruction or data sheet of modules,
keypads and expanders for current consumption.
Expander 1 Current (mA) + Expander 2 Current (mA) + ….. <750 mA
If the Darlington outputs (OP4, OP5 & OP6) are already powering external devices
then the power supplied to these devices from the 750 mA supply must be
subtracted to determine the amount of available power from the auxiliary power
terminals (0 V 12 V).
If the total maximum current draw from the expanders exceeds 750 mA then a PSU
expander should be used to provide additional power.

Calculating the battery power requirements
It is important that adequate stand-by power is available to supply all devices in the
event of a mains supply failure. To ensure that enough power is available, always
connect the appropriate back-up battery and PSU.
The table below gives an approximation of the maximum load current that can be
drawn from each type of battery over the given stand-by periods of 12 hours, 30
hours.
The approximations below assume that the SPC controller PCB is drawing its
maximum load (all wired inputs have their EOL resistors fitted) and that the usable
output power from the battery is 85 % of its maximum capacity.

Appendix
Duress PINs
21
10 No of digits = Number of variations (including the User or Engineer PIN)
The default Engineer PIN is 1111. See Engineer PINs [➙ 68] for more details.
21.11
Duress PINs
The last user PIN within each number of digits, i.e. for a 4 digit PIN this would be
9999, a duress PIN is not allowed on this user PIN.
The last user PIN that is allowed to have duress is the number of variations ‘-2’ or ‘3’ depending if Duress +1 or Duress +2 is used respectively i.e. for a 4 digit user
PIN using Duress +1 the total number of variations is 10,000 minus 2 = 9998 which
is the last user PIN that can be allocated duress.
If Duress +2 is used then the total number of variations is 10,000 minus 3 = 9997,
which is the last user PIN that can be allocated duress. Once a system has been
configured for Duress +1 or Duress +2 and users allocated, it must not be changed
unless all the users are deleted and re-allocated user PINs.
21.12
Automatic inhibits
The system supports automatic inhibits in the following instances.
21.12.1
Zones
When the UK & Commercial are selected (see Standards [➙ 151]), the system will
provide DD243 functionality. In this instance the system will inhibit zones under the
following conditions:
21.12.2

Entry zone will not cause an alarm signal to the central station and cannot be
part of a confirmed alarm and hence will be effectively inhibited as required by
DD243.

If a single zone is triggered and another zone is not triggered within the
confirmation time (30 min default) but the first zone is still triggered, then the
first zone will be automatically be inhibited and no further alarms will be
triggered from this zone during the set period.
Access PINs
For Grade 2 systems: After 10 unsuccessful attempts with the incorrect PIN, the
keypad or browser will be disabled for 90 s; after a further 10 attempts with the
incorrect PIN, the keypad or browser will be disabled for a further 90 s. Once a
correct PIN has been entered, it will reset the counter back to zero allowing for a
further 10 attempts before disablement.
For Grade 3 systems: After 10 unsuccessful attempts with the incorrect PIN, the
keypad or browser will be disabled for 90 s; after each further attempt with an
incorrect PIN the keypad or browser will be disabled for a further 90 s. Once a
correct PIN has been entered it will reset the counter back to zero allowing for a
further 10 attempts before disablement.

Engineer Access
An Engineer can only access the system if permitted by a ‘Manager’ user type (see
‘Engineer’ attribute in User Rights [➙ 131]) and only for a specified time duration
(see ‘Engineer Access’ in Timers [➙ 160]).
21.12.4
Keypad User Logoff
If no keys are pressed on a keypad for a specific duration (see ‘Keypad Timeout’ in
Timers [➙ 79]), the user is automatically logged off.
21.13
Wiring of mains cable to the controller
Requirements:
A readily accessible approved disconnect device must be incorporated in the
building installation wiring. This must disconnect both phases at the same time.
Acceptable devices are switches, circuit breakers, or similar devices

Minimum size conductor used for connecting mains is 1.5 mm square

The circuit breakers must have a maximum rating of 16 A
The mains cable is secured to the metal V shaped bend in the base plate via a tie
wrap such that the metal bend is between the cable and the tie wrap. Ensure that
the tie wrap is applied to the supplementary insulation of the mains cable i.e. the
outer PVC cable sleeve. The tie wrap must be pulled extremely tightly such that
when the cable is tugged there is no movement in the cable relative to the tie wrap.
The Protective Earthing conductor should be fitted to the terminal block in such a
way that if the mains cable should slip in its anchorage, placing a strain on the
conductors, the Protective Earthing conductor will be the last item to take the
strain.
The mains cable must be an approved type and marked HO5 VV-F or HO5 VVH2F2.
The plastic tie wrap must be flammability rated V-1.
21.14
Maintenance controller
The system should be serviced in accordance with the service schedule that is in
place. The only replaceable parts on the controller are the mains fuse, standby
battery and the time & date battery (PCB mounted).
It is recommended that during a service the following be checked:

The Event Log to check if any standby battery tests have failed since last
service – if standby battery tests have failed then the standby battery should be
checked.

The standby battery should be replaced as per the servicing schedule to
ensure that it has sufficient capacity to hold the system up for the time defined
in the system design. The battery should be physically inspected for any
deformation of the casing or any sign of leakage; if any of these conditions
exist the battery should be immediately replaced.

NOTICE
The new battery should be of the same capacity or greater (up to the maximum
the system can accommodate).
21.15

If the main fuse blows then the system should be checked for any reasons. The
fuse should be replaced by a fuse with the same rating. The rating is stated on
the system label in the rear of the cabinet.

The time & date onboard PCB lithium battery is only used when the system is
left un-powered; in this state that battery has a life of approximately 5 years.
The battery should be visually checked once a year and all power removed
from the system to ensure that system retains the time & date. If the system
does not retain the time and date the battery should be replaced with a new
Lithium cell type CR1216.

All electrical connections should be checked to ensure that the insulation is in
place and there is no risk of shorting or becoming disconnected.

It is also recommended that any firmware update release notes be checked for
any additional updates that may improve the security of the system.

Check all physical mountings are intact. Any broken mountings should be
replaced with the same parts.
Maintenance Smart PSU
The system should be serviced in accordance with the service schedule that is in
place. The only replaceable parts on the Smart PSU are the mains fuse and
standby battery.
It is recommended that during a service the following be checked:

The controller Event Log to check if any standby battery tests have failed since
last service – if standby battery tests have failed then the standby battery
should be checked.

The standby battery should be replaced as per the servicing schedule to
ensure that it has sufficient capacity to hold the system up for the time defined
in the system design. The battery should be physically inspected for any
deformation of the casing or any sign of leakage; if any of these conditions
exist the battery should be immediately replaced.
NOTICE
The new battery should be of the same capacity or greater (up to the maximum

Zone types
21.16
Zone types
The zone types on the SPC system are programmable from both the browser and
keypad. The table below gives a brief description of each zone type available on
the SPC system. Each zone type activates its own unique output type (an internal
flag or indicator) that can then be logged or assigned to a physical output for
activation of a specific device if required.
Zone Type
Processing Category
Description
ALARM
Intruder
This zone type is the default zone type setting and is also the most
frequently used zone type for standard installations.
An Open, Disconnected, or Tamper activation in any mode (except
unset) causes an immediate full alarm.
In the Unset mode, Tamper conditions are logged, causing the alert
message ZONE TAMPER and triggering a local alarm. In Partset A,
Partset B and Full Set modes, all activity is logged.
ENTRY/EXIT
Intruder
This zone type should be assigned to all zones on an entry/exit route (i.e.
a front door or other access area to the building or premises). This zone
type provides an entry and exit time delay.
The entry timer controls this delay. When the system is being full set, this
zone type provides an exit delay allowing time to vacate an area. The
exit timer controls this delay. In Part set A mode, this zone type is
inactive.
EXIT TERMINATOR
Intruder
This zone type is used in conjunction with a push button on an exit route
and acts as an exit terminator – that is, it provides an infinite exit delay
period and will not allow the system to set until the button is pressed.
FIRE
Hold-up
Fire zones are 24-hour zones for fire monitoring and their response is
independent of panel operating mode. When any fire zone opens, a full
alarm is generated and the FIRE output type is activated. If the ‘Report
only’ attribute is set then activation will only be reported to the central
station and a Full Alarm will not be generated.
FIRE EXIT
Hold-up
This is a special type of 24-hour zone for use with fire exit doors that
should never be opened. In Unset mode, an activation of this zone will
trip the Fire-X output, causing alert messages and sounding the keypad
buzzer and internal sounder.
LINE
Fault
Telemetry line monitoring input. This is usually used in conjunction with a
telephone line health output from an external digital dialer or direct line
communication system. When activated, it produces a local alarm in
Unset mode and a full alarm in all other modes.
PANIC ALARM
Hold-up
This zone type is active on a 24-hour basis and activated via a panic
button. When a Panic zone is activated it will report a Panic event,
independent of panel arming mode. All activation’s are logged and
reported if log attribute is active. If the SILENT attribute is set then the
alarm will be silent (Activation is reported to ARC), otherwise it will
generate a Full alarm.
HOLD-UP ALARM
Hold-up
This zone type is active on a 24-hour basis and activated via a button.
When a Hold-up zone is activated it will report a Hold-up event,
independent of panel arming mode. If the SILENT attribute is set then
the alarm will be silent, otherwise it will generate a full alarm. All
activations are logged and reported if log attribute is active.
TAMPER
Tamper
When open in the Unset mode, a Local Alarm is generated but no
external bell will activate. If the system is Full Set, a Full alarm is
generated. If the Security Grade of the system is set to Grade 3 then an
engineer code is required to restore the alarm.

Appendix
Zone types
21
TECHNICAL
Intruder
The tech zone controls a dedicated tech zone output. When a tech zone
changes state, the tech zone output will follow. That is:
 When the tech zone opens, tech zone o/p triggers on
 When the tech zone closes, tech zone o/p goes off
If more than one tech zone has been assigned, the tech zone output will
remain on until all tech zones are closed.
MEDICAL
Hold-up
This zone type is used in conjunction with radio or hardwired medical
switches.
Activation in any mode will:
 Trigger the medical digital communicator output (unless Local
attribute is set)
 Cause the panel buzzer to sound (unless Silent attribute is set)
 Display the message Medic Alarm
KEYARM
Intruder
This zone type is normally used in conjunction with a key lock
mechanism. A Keyarm zone will SET the System / Area / Common
Areas when it is OPENED and will UNSET the System/Area/Common
Areas when it is CLOSED.
 If the zone with the keyarm zone type is assigned in an non area
system then the keyarm operation will SET/UNSET the system.
 If the zone with the keyarm zone type is assigned to an area then
the keyarm operation will SET/UNSET the area.
 If the zone with the keyarm zone type is assigned to a common area
then the keyarm operation will SET/UNSET all the areas in the
common area.
 If the ‘Open only’ attribute is set then the armed status of the System
/ Area / Common Areas will toggle on each opening of the key lock. (
i.e. Open once to SET the system, Close and Open again to
UNSET)
 If the ‘Fullset Enable’ attribute is set then zone activation will only
Fullset the system.
 If the ‘Unset Enable’ attribute is set then zone activation will only
unset the system.
Keyarming will force set the system/area and auto-inhibit any open
zones or fault conditions.
Note: Your system will not comply with EN standards if you enable this
zone type to set the system without a valid PIN being required.
SHUNT
Intruder
This zone type is only available in Commercial Mode of operation.
Though the Shunt Alarm Zone type can be set in Domestic Mode of
operation, it has no effect.
This zone type when opened inhibits all zones that have the shunt
attribute set. This operation applies for both SET and UNSET modes. As
soon as the shunt zone is closed, the zones with the shunt attribute set
will become un-inhibited again.
X-SHUNT
Intruder
This zone type is only available in Commercial Mode of operation.
A zone programmed with the x-shunt zone type inhibits the next
consecutive zone on the system whenever it is opened. This operation
applies for both SET and UNSET modes. As soon as the x-shunt zone
type is closed the next zone becomes de-inhibited again.
DETECTOR FAULT
Fault
Detector Fault zones are 24 hour zones that are applicable to a detector
device, for example, a PIR. The fault zone type triggers the Fault output.
When the system is armed, a LED on the keypad and optional internal
audible alarm indicates the fault. Only the keypad LED is activated when
Unarmed.
This zone type will report the SIA messages, BT (Burglary Trouble) and
BTS (Burglary Trouble Restore) and for CID, a sensor trouble event
(380) is produced.

attempts by mechanical means, such as drilling or making holes through
walls or safes.
ALL OKAY
Intruder
This zone type enables a special entry procedure to be implemented
using a user code and ‘All Okay’ input. A silent alarm is generated if an
All Okay button is not pressed within a configurable time after a user
code is entered. (See Areas [➙ 166] for details of ‘All Okay’
configuration)
All Okay uses two outputs, Entry Status (Green LED) and Warning
Status (Red LED), to indicate entry status using LEDs on the keypad.
UNUSED
Intruder
Allows a zone to be disabled without the need for each zone to have
EOL resistors fitted. Any activation on the zone will be ignored.
HOLDUP FAULT
Fault
Holdup Fault zones are 24 hour zones that are applicable to a holdup
signaling device, for example, a WPA. The fault zone type triggers the
Fault output.
When the system is armed, a LED on the keypad and optional internal
audible alarm indicates the fault. Only the keypad LED is activated when
Unarmed.
This zone type will report the SIA messages, HT (Holdup Trouble) and
HJ (Holdup Trouble Restore) and for CID, a sensor trouble event (380) is
produced.
WARNING FAULT
Fault
Warning Fault zones are 24 hour zones that are applicable to a warning
signaling device, for example, an internal or external bell. The fault zone
type triggers the Fault output.
When the system is armed, a LED on the keypad and optional internal
audible alarm indicates the fault. Only the keypad LED is activated when
Unarmed.
This zone type will report the SIA messages, YA (Bell Fault) and YH (Bell
Restore) and for CID, a sensor trouble event (380) is produced.
Note: On a grade 2 system, a cable fault will cause a fault and not an
alarm.
21.17
Zone attributes
The zone attributes on the SPC system determine the manner in which the
programmed zone types function.
Zone attribute
Description
Access
When the ‘Access’ attribute on a zone is set, then on opening that zone, an
alarm will not be generated if either the entry or exit timer is running. When
the system is full set the Access attribute is not active and opening the zone
will initiate a full alarm. The ‘Access’ attribute is most often used for PIR
sensors located close to an entry/exit zone. It allows the user free movement
within the access area while the entry or exit timer is counting down.
The ‘Access’ attribute is only valid for Alarm zone types.
All connected devices (Bells - Internal & External, Buzzers, Strobe) are
activated.
NOTE: An alarm zone with Access attribute can automatically be changed to
an entry/exit zone in Partset mode if the Partset Access Option is set.

Appendix
Zone attributes
Exclude A
If the ‘Exclude A’ attribute on a zone is set, then an alarm will not be
generated by that zone opening while the panel is in the Partset A mode. The
‘Exclude A’ attribute is valid for Alarm zone type and Entry/Exit zones only.
A FULL alarm is generated if a zone with the EXCLUDE A attribute is opened
while the system is in FULLSET or PARTSET B Mode (Bells - Internal &
External, Strobe).
Exclude B
When the ‘Exclude B’ attribute is set, the zone opening will not generate an
alarm while the panel is in the Partset B mode. The ‘Exclude B’ attribute is
valid for Alarm zone type and E/Exit zones only.
A FULL alarm is generated if a zone with the EXCLUDE B attribute is opened
while the system is in FULLSET or PARTSET A Mode (Bells - Internal &
External, Strobe).
24 Hour
If a Zone is assigned the ‘24 Hour’ attribute, then it is active at all times and
will cause a full alarm if opened in any mode. This attribute can only be
assigned to the ALARM zone type. Generates a FULL Alarm in UNSET, SET
and PARTSET modes.
NOTE: The 24 Hour attribute overrides the settings of any of the other
attributes for a particular alarm zone.
Local
When the ‘Local’ attribute is set, an alarm generated by a zone opening will
not result in the external reporting of the event. The ‘Local’ attribute is valid for
Alarm, E/Exit, Fire, Fire Exit and Medic zone types.
Unset Local
When this attribute is set, an alarm generated by the zone opening when the
area is fullset or partset will be reported in the usual way. However, if the area
is unset there will be only a local alarm i.e keypad buzzer, LED flash and zone
display. This attribute is only applicable to Alarm, Fire and Seismic zones.
Double Knock
Use this attribute to deal with troublesome detectors. (i.e. some detectors may
generate activation signals spuriously, thereby inadvertently trigger alarms on
the system).
If the same double knock zone activates twice during the double knock
period, then an alarm is generated. Double knock time is set in seconds (see
page [➙ 160]). Two open actions within that time period will generate an
alarm. All open double knock zones are logged when the system is armed.
Chime
When the ‘Chime’ attribute is set for a zone, any opening of the zone during
the Unset mode will cause the internal buzzers to activate for a short period (2
seconds approx.).
The Chime attribute is valid for Alarm, Entry/Exit, and Tech. zones types.
Inhibit
When the ‘Inhibit’ attribute is set, a user may inhibit this zone. The inhibit
operation will disable that fault or zone for one setting period only.
Normal Open
When the ‘Normal Open’ attribute is set, the system expects that a connected
detector/sensor is a Normally Open device. (i.e. a sensor is deemed to be
activated whenever the contacts are closed on the device ).
Silent
If the ‘Silent’ attribute is set then there will be no audio or visual indications of
the Alarm. The alarm activation will be sent to the Receiver station. If the
system is unset then a warning message is shown on the display.
Log
If this attribute is set then all zone state changes are logged.
Exit Open
If set then zone will be indicated if open during setting.
Frequent
This attribute only applies to Remote Maintenance*. If this attribute is set for a
zone, the zone must open for remote service purposes within the defined
frequent time period.
End of Line
The End Of Line (EOL) attribute provides a number of input zone wiring
configurations on the system.

Zone attributes
Analysed
The Analysed Attribute must be set for a zone if that zone is wired with an
inertia sensor. The Pulse count and Gross attack values should be
programmed for each inertia sensor on the system in accordance with the
results of a simple calibration of the device.
Pulse Count
Pulse count trigger level for analysed inertia sensors.
Gross Attack
Gross attack trigger level for analysed inertia sensors
Final Exit
The Final Exit attribute can only be assigned to an Entry/Exit Zone type. Use
this attribute to override the standard process of counting down the exit timer
whenever the system is full set. When all other entry/exit routes in the
premises are closed, fullset the system and close the final exit/entry zone. As
soon as the door is closed the Final Exit time will count down to setting the
system.
Shunt
A zone with the shunt attribute set will be inhibited whenever a shunt type
zone is opened. This provides a mechanism to group the inhibition of zones
with the opening of the shunt zone type.
Report Only
This attribute only applies to the FIRE zone type. If this attribute is set, then
activation of the fire zone will only report the activation to the central station.
No alarms will be generated on site.
Open Only
This attribute only applies to the KEYARM zone type. If set then the setting
state of the building will toggle on openings only.
Fullset Enable
This attribute only applies to the KEYARM zone type. If this attribute is set
then zone activation will Fullset the system/area. Apply this attribute if it is
intended that the user should only have the ability to FULLSET the system
from a keyarm zone.
Unset Enable
This attribute only applies to the KEYARM zone type. If set then zone
activation will Unset the system/area. Apply this attribute if it is intended that
the user should only have the ability to UNSET the system from a keyarm
zone.
Keyarm Fullset
This attribute only applies to the KEYARM zone type. If set then zone
activation will Fullset the system/area.
Keyarm Unset
This attribute only applies to the KEYARM zone type. If set then zone
activation will Unset the system/area.
Tech Zone Report
Allows a zone when opened, regardless of the mode to send an alarm to the
ARC in FF, CID, SIA and SIA extended. When areas are selected, the alarm
will only be sent to the ARC to which the area has been assigned to. This
would be a “UA” Unknown Alarm followed by the zone number and text if SIA
extended is selected. It will also send an SMS to the end user and engineer if
select to do so when the unconfirmed alarm filter is selected.
Tech Zone Display
Allows an opening zone to be displayed on the system keypad. The alert led
should also activate. When areas are selected it will only be displayed on the
keypad which is assigned to the area in which the zone has been selected.
The alert may only be displayed on the keypad when the area is in the unset
mode and not in the Part A, Part B and set mode.
Tech Zone Audible
Allows an activated zone to operate the buzzer. This will operate the same as
the Tech Zone Display in the different setting modes and on systems with
areas.
Tech Zone Delay
Allows the zone to have a programmable delay. The delay is variable from 0
to 9999 seconds and will apply to all Tech Zones. The operation is the same
as the Mains Delay timer, if the zone is closed within the delay time, then no
alarm is sent to the ARC, no SMS is sent to the user and the Technical
Output will not trip.

NOTE: The Technical Output will not trip until the delay timer has expired.
Armed report only
Openings are reported only in armed mode.
Fire pre-alarm
If enabled and a fire alarm occurs, a Fire Pre-alarm timer is started and
internal bells and buzzers are activated. (See Timers [➙ 160].) If the alarm is
not cancelled within the timer duration, a fire alarm is confirmed, internal and
external bells are triggered and an event is sent to ARC.
Fire Recognition
If enabled, a Fire Recognition timer is activated which adds extra time to the
Fire Pre-alarm timer duration until a file alarm is reported for the zone. See
Timers [➙ 160].
Seismic Test/Automatic Sensor
Test
A Seismic zone type may be tested manually or automatically. This attribute
allows automatic testing to be enabled. Refer to the section on timers [➙ 160]
for details of how to configure the timer that determines how often the panel
tests any seismic zones that have this attribute set. The default value for the
timer is 7 days.
Delayed Setting
The ‘Delayed Setting’ attribute is used for Key Arm zones to delay the setting
of an area. The delay follows the exit timer for the area to which the key arm
is associated.
Verification
Select the configured verification zone to assign to this zone to trigger
audio/video verification.

Attenuation of PSTN
For a PSTN dialer, a CW1308 Internal Telecom or equivalent cable should be used
to connect the modem to the phone line. The cable length should be between 0.5 –
100m.
Attenuation of Ethernet
For Ethernet, a Cat 5 cable should be used with its length between 0.5 – 100m.
Attenuation of GSM
The field strength of the GSM signal needs to at least -95dB. Below this level the
modem will flag a low signal fault to the panel. This is handled in the same way as
other faults on the system.
Monitoring and watchdog of PSTN (SPCN110) and GSM (SPCN310)
A failure of the interface between the PSTN modem and the panel will be detected
after 30 seconds, after which an ATS fault will occur.
A failure of the interface between the GSM modem and the panel will be detected
after 30 seconds, after which an ATS fault will occur.
