FEATURES
Keypad Programmable
The PC1500 is complete with a default program so that it is
operational with a minimum of programming. The control
panel is completely programmable from the keypad.
EEPROM Memory
The panel uses EEPROM memory which will retain all program
information even if AC and battery power is removed from the
panel. The EEPROM memory can be reprogrammed
thousands of times.
Static/Lightning Protection
The PC1500 has been carefully designed and tested to
provide reliable protection against static and lightning induced
transients. Our special “Zap-Trac” circuit board design
catches high voltage transients right at the wiring terminals,
and transient protection devices are placed in all critical
areas to further reduce damaging voltages.

The auxiliary power supply can be
used to power keypads, motion
detectors and other devices that
require 12 VDC. See the Fire Zone
Wiring section for the connection of
4-wire smoke detectors. The total
load for the auxiliary power output
must be calculated for all devices
connected across the AUX +/terminals and for devices connected
between the AUX + and PGM
terminals. The output current cannot exceed 475 mA. Allow 35
mA for each PC1500RK keypad connected to the panel.
Bell/Siren Connection
PGM Terminal Connections
The PGM terminal is a switched
negative output which can be

The wiring table gives the wire run length from the control
panel to the keypad for various gauges of wire. Wire run
lengths are based on the maximum current drawn by the
keypad. (All lights ON).
If two wires of the same gauge are paralleled, the run length
can be doubled. eg. If 8 #22 AWG wires are used, 2 red, 2
blk, 2 grn and 2 yel, the run length would go from 420’ to 840’
(127 to 254 m).

Wire run distances are in feet / meters from the control panel
to the last device on the loop. Calculations are based on 12
VDC at the panel with a maximum 10% voltage drop at the
last device. Observe polarity when connecting siren drivers,
sirens and polarized bells.
Fire Zone Wiring
Burglary Zone Wiring
Any one of the 6 zones may be programmed as a Fire Zone.
See Programming Guide Section [11].
Burglary zone definition, (eg. Delay, Instant, 24 Hr. etc.) is
programmed via the keypad. See the Programming Guide,
Section [11].
Smoke detectors should be the latching type and have N.O.
alarm initiating contacts. Power wiring from the AUX + /
PGM terminals should be supervised using an RM-1 relay
after the last smoke detector. The RM-1 N.O. contacts
(closed with power applied) should be wired in series with
the alarm initiating end-of-line resistor so that should power
to the detector(s) fail, a fire zone trouble will be initiated.

GUIDELINES FOR LOCATING SMOKE DETECTORS
Experience has shown that all hostile fires in family living
units generate smoke to a greater or lesser extent.
Experiments using typical fires in family living units indicate
that detectable quantities of smoke precede detectable
levels of heat in most cases. For these reasons, smoke
detectors should be installed outside of each sleeping area
and on each additional story of the family unit.
Bedroom
The following information is for general guidance only and it
is recommended that the smoke detector manufacturer's
literature be used for detailed installation instructions.
Bedroom
Living
Room
It is recommended that additional smoke detectors beyond
those required be installed for increased protection. The
added areas include: basement, bedrooms, dining rooms,
furnace room, utility room and hallways not protected by the
required detectors.

FIG. 4: Smoke Detector mounting - “Dead” Air Space. The
smoke from a fire generally rises to the ceiling, spreads
out across the ceiling surface and begins to bank down
from the ceiling. The corner where the ceiling and wall
meet is an air space into which the smoke may have
difficulty penetrating. In most fires, this “dead” air space
measures about 4 in. (0.1m) along the ceiling from the
corner and about 4 in. (0.1m) down the wall as shown in
Figure 4. Detectors should not be placed in the dead” air
space.
KEYPAD FUNCTIONS
Introduction
Auto-bypass/Home-away Arming
The PC1500RK remote keypad provides complete information
and control of the PC1500 control panel. The panel can be fully
programmed from the keypad. The 6 zone lights provide alarm
and status indication for the alarm circuits. Each zone can be
programmed to be a burglary zone or a fire zone. The five
function lights guide the user in operating the system and the
built-in sounder lets the user hear correct key entries and other
alert signals. The 12 digit keypad is used for code entry and
other programming functions. The single button [F]ire, [A]uxiliary
and [P]anic keys provide the user with simple operation for
emergency signalling. All keypad entries are made by pressing
one key at a time.
If a correct access code is entered, and you do not exit the
premises, the system will, at the end of the Exit Delay time,
arm with interior zones automatically bypassed if those
interior zones have been programmed as “Home-away”
zones. The “Bypass” light will come ON. (See programming
Section [11], Zone Definitions for programming zones as
“Home-away”).
Master Code
A default Master Code “1234” is factory programmed into the
PC1500. The Master Code is used to arm and disarm the panel,
to reset the bells after an alarm, to program up to 11 additional
codes using the [ ][5] command, and to enter other user
functions using the [ ][6] command. The panel default program
allows the user to change the Master Code. The panel can be
programmed, by the installer, so the user cannot change the
Master Code. See 2nd System Option Code light 2.
∗
∗
2nd Master Code
A second Master Code can be programmed into the PC1500.
This code can be changed by the installer only, and is useful
where there are multiple panels in a complex. The 2nd Master
Code may be used as a “Master Key”. The default 2nd
Master Code is blank.
Installer’s Programming Code
A default Installer’s Programming Code “1500” is programmed
into the PC1500. Using this code and the [ ][8] command, the
installer can gain access to the system to enter panel program
information. This code can be changed by the installer.
∗
Arming
Before arming the panel, close all protected doors and
windows and stop movement in areas covered by motion
detectors. If the “Trouble” light is on, check for the type of
trouble ([ ][2] command) and correct the fault condition. If
the “Bypass” light is on, insure that the zones bypassed are
bypassed intentionally, ([ ][1] command). If the “Ready”
light is not on, one or more zones are open. The system can
only be armed when the “Ready” light is ON. To arm, enter
a 4 digit access code. As each digit is entered, the keypad
sounder will beep. When the correct access code has been
entered the “Armed” light will come ON and the keypad will
beep 6 times. If the access code has been entered
incorrectly, the keypad will sound one long tone. Press the
[#] key and enter the access code again.
∗
∗
When the correct access code has been entered and the
“Armed” light is ON, exit through the designated entry/exit
door before the Exit Delay time expires. At the end of the
allowed exit time, all lights on the keypad will go out except
the “Armed” light. The “Bypass” light will be ON if a zone is
bypassed and if Show Bypassed Status While Armed is
programmed in Section [31], zone light 4 ON.
∗
See Installer’s programming Section [ ][8] command for
instructions on changing the Exit Delay time.
This is a convenience feature for the user who wishes to
remain at home with the system armed. The user does not
have to manually bypass the interior zones.
To reactivate the interior zones that have been automatically
bypassed, press [ ][1]. The “Bypass” light will go out. If the
bypassed zones were programmed as Home-away with
delay, the “Bypass” light will go out after the delay. This
command is a quick method of fully arming the system before
going to bed and is useful for the user who has a keypad
outside the areas protected by the interior zones.
∗
Arming Without Entry Delay
∗
To eliminate the Entry Delay, arm the system using [ ][9],
[any valid access code]. An exit may be made as in normal
arming. The system will arm as described above in Autobypass / Home-away arming whether an exit is made or not.
The “Armed” light will flash to indicate that the system is
armed without the Entry Delay.
Disarming
Enter the premises through the designated entry-exit door. The
keypad sounder will be on as a reminder to disarm the system.
Go to the keypad and enter a valid access code. If an error is
made entering the code, press the [#] key and enter the code
again. The “Armed” light will go out and the sounder will stop.
The correct access code must be entered before the entry time
expires or the panel will go into alarm. To change the entry time
see Installer’s Programming Section [17].
If an alarm occurred while the panel was armed, upon
disarming the “Memory” light and the zone light(s) of the
zone(s) that caused the alarm will flash for two minutes.
Pressing the [#] key will stop the flashing, extinguish the
zone light(s) and return the panel to the ready mode. The
“Memory” light will stay on steady to indicate that an alarm
did occur during the last armed period. To view the zone(s)
that caused the alarm, see Alarm Memory Display [ ][3].
∗
Zone Bypassing
[∗ ]+[1]
A bypassed zone will not cause an alarm. Use zone
bypassing when access is needed to part of a protected area
or if damage to contacts or wiring cannot be repaired
immediately. The panel can be armed with one or more
zones bypassed even if the zone(s) are open. The “Ready”
light will be ON and the “Bypass” light will be ON if a zone is
bypassed. A fire zone cannot be bypassed.
∗
If the “Bypass” light is ON when arming, use the [ ][1]
command to display the bypassed zones and ensure that
any zone displayed as being bypassed is intentionally
bypassed.
Zone bypasses are automatically cancelled when the panel
is disarmed.
5
To Bypass Zones:
∗
Enter [ ][1] - the “Bypass” light will start flashing.
Enter [zone number to be bypassed]; the zone light will come
ON to indicate that the zone is bypassed. To remove a
bypass, enter the zone number and the zone light will go OFF.
Continue entering the zone numbers for the zones you want
bypassed. Press [#] to return to Ready.
NOTE: Any zone defined as 24 Hour Bell, 24 Hour Bell/
Buzzer, or 24 Hour Buzzer cannot be bypassed while that
zone is violated. To bypass a 24 hour zone, the zone must be
physically restored.
To Recall Bypassed Zones:
∗
Enter [ ][1][9]
This command will recall the last zone or group of zones that
were bypassed. If the same group of zones are bypassed
regularly, the bypass recall feature can be used instead of
bypassing the zones individually.
Bypass Disable:
The PC1500 can be programmed by the installer to prevent
certain zones from being bypassed by the user. Lights for
these zones will not come ON in response to the bypass
command. See the Zone Bypass Mask instruction in the
installer programming Section [16].
Trouble Conditions
[∗ ]+[2]
The PC1500 continuously monitors a number of trouble
conditions. If one of these conditions occurs, the keypad
“Trouble” light will come ON and the buzzer will sound two
short beeps every 10 seconds. To silence the buzzer, press
the [#] key. The buzzer will stop but the “Trouble” light will
remain ON until the trouble condition is cleared. See the
Programming Guide Section [10], Maintenance Alarms &
Restorals for a list of trouble conditions that can be transmitted
to the monitoring station.
∗
To view the trouble condition, press [ ][2].
1. Low Battery. If the battery voltage is low, the battery is
disconnected or the battery fuse is blown, a trouble will be
displayed and can be reported.
2. AC Failure. On loss of AC power, the “Trouble” light will
come ON immediately, but the keypad buzzer will not sound.
The keypad buzzer will sound if AC power remains off and the
battery reaches a low voltage. The delay before transmitting
AC Fail can be programmed from 1 to 99 minutes. See
Programming Section [17].
3. Fuse Failure - Bell / Siren or AUX Output. A trouble is
displayed if the Bell / Siren fuse is open. If the AUX output
fuse fails, it will not be displayed but will be transmitted if
programmed to do so.
4. Unsuccessful Communication Attempt If the digital
communicator is unsuccessful at communicating with the
monitoring station after 8 attempts at each phone number
that is tried, a trouble is generated. See Section [25],
Communication Variables. If a later attempt at communication
is successful, the trouble is cleared. The trouble can also be
cleared by pressing the [#] key to exit from the trouble view
mode.
6
5. Fire Alarm Circuit Trouble An open circuit on the zone
programmed as a Fire Zone will initiate a trouble. See Zone
Definitions Section [11] for Fire Zone assignment.
6. Loss of Time on System Clock... When the PC1500 is
powered up or reset, the internal time of day clock needs to
be reset to the correct time. The trouble is cleared after
entering the trouble view mode then pressing [#] to exit. The
trouble will also be cleared on any attempt to set the time of
day. See [ ][6] User Function Command for setting the
clock. Press [#] to return to Ready. NOTE: A trouble will not
be generated if both the test transmission and Auto-Arm
times are not programmed with valid times.
∗
NOTE: If [9] is pressed while in the trouble display mode, the
most recent trouble will be displayed on the zone lights. This
trouble memory is most useful as a diagnostic tool when
installing and servicing the PC1500.
Alarm Memory
[∗ ]+[3]
Alarms caused during the previous armed period are stored
in memory. To view these alarms, press [ ] then [3]. The
“Memory” light will flash and the alarm(s) will be displayed on
the flashing zone lights.
∗
In addition to the last alarm memory, there are two history
levels. After entering the memory mode, pressing any key [0]
to [9] will display the two other levels of alarm history. Each
time a key is pressed, the keypad will beep 1, 2 or 3 times to
indicate which level of history is being viewed.
When the panel is armed, and if there is an alarm in the 1st
level, the 1st level is cleared and the contents moved to the
2nd level. The 2nd level contents are moved to the 3rd level
and the 3rd level contents are discarded. The “Memory” light
will be ON only if there was an alarm during the previous
armed period. Press [#] to return to Ready.
Downloading Callup Command
[∗ ]+[4]
∗
The [ ][4] command is used to initiate a call to the
downloading computer so that the panel can be accessed by

will sound once the key input is accepted.
PROGRAMMING GUIDE
Introduction
The PC1500 is fully programmable from the keypad and uses
an EEPROM memory which can be reprogrammed thousands
of times. The EEPROM memory will not lose the program data
even on total loss of power. The essential information which
defines the operation of the control panel is stored in a
section of the EEPROM memory which is accessible using
the Installer’s Programming code or via downloading. If the
Installer’s code is forgotten, the EEPROM may be reset to the
factory default code. See Section [30], Reset to Factory
Default.
Programming
∗
With the panel in the disarmed mode, enter [ ][8][1500].
The panel can only be programmed while it is in the disarmed
mode. The default installer’s code is 1500; the installer’s
code can be changed. See Section [20], New Installer’s
Code.
Once the installer’s command is entered, the “Armed” light
will come ON steadily and the “Memory“, “Bypass” and
“Trouble” lights will flash. This indicates that the panel is
ready for programming. NOTE: If no key entry is made for
2 minutes, the panel will return to the Ready mode and the
complete installer’s command will have to be entered before
programming can be resumed.
With the “Armed” light ON steadily, enter 2 digits for the
section you wish to program. The sections for the PC1500
panel range from [01] to [36], and each section can be
programmed independently. Section [00] is reserved for
binary programming which is normally done on instruction
from factory technical personnel.
Once the 2 digits for the section you wish to program are
entered, the “Armed” light will go OFF, the “Ready” light will
go ON steadily, and the keypad sounder will beep 3 times.
The keypad is now ready to accept data for the selected
section.
Most sections contain groups of 2-digit entries and the
keypad buzzer will beep twice after each 2-digit group is
entered.
When the section is first entered, the first 4 zone lights will
indicate, in a binary format, the value of the first digit in that
section (refer to “Binary Data Display” on the next page). If
you wish to change that digit, simply enter the new digit from
the keypad. If you wish to keep that digit unchanged, you can
enter the same number or skip the digit by pressing the [F]
key. Once the first digit has been entered or skipped, the 4
zone lights will display the value of the second digit. After
each digit is entered or skipped, the zone lights show the
value of the next digit in the binary format.
When the required data for the section being programmed is
completely entered, the keypad sounder will beep several
times and the “Armed” light will come ON to indicate that the
expected data has been entered.
At this point, you will still be in the program mode and need
only enter the section number for the next section you wish
to program.
It is not necessary to program all 2-digit pairs in any given
section. A section can be entered and selectively programmed
by going only to the digit(s) you wish to change and then
pressing [#] to return to the programming mode where you
can then enter another section number for programming. For
2-digit pairs, both digits must be programmed before pressing
the [#] key. Only the data entered before pressing the [#] key
will be changed in the EEPROM.
Program Data Review
• Enter the section you wish to program by entering the 2digit section number.
• The first 4 zone LEDs will represent the value, in binary
format, of the first digit in that section.
• Each press of the [F] key will advance the display to the
next digit.
• At the end of the section, the keypad will beep several
times and then return to the program mode so that
another section can be selected for review or
programming.
NOTE: Only Sections [01] through [11], [15], and [17]
through [28] can be reviewed using the method described
above.
Sections [12], [13], [14], [16], [31], [32], [34]
These sections use the zone lights to indicate which functions
are active and which number key to press to turn them ON
and OFF. When one of these sections is entered, zone lights
1 to 6 will display which functions are currently ON. Pressing
the key number corresponding to the zone light number will
alternately turn the function ON and OFF, and the zone light
will correspond to this. All functions can be turned OFF at
once by pressing [0]. When the correct selections have been
made, press [#] to save the selections in memory and return
to the program mode where another section can be selected.

∗ ∗] for a 4-second pause (HEX ‘C’)
When complete, enter two digits to program another section.
[02] 1st Account Code
The 1st Account Code is always transmitted to the 1st
telephone number to identify the customer. Enter a 4-digit
number. If the HEX digits ‘A’ to ‘F’ are required, remember
to enter [ ] before and after the digit entry.
∗
Where a zero is required in the account code, enter HEX ‘A’
( , 1, ) to transmit 10 pulses which will be interpreted as a
zero by the monitoring station receiver.
∗ ∗
If a 3-digit code is required, as in 3/1 formats, enter [0] as the LAST
digit. The [0] represents a null digit where no pulses are transmitted.
[03] 2nd Phone Number
This is the second telephone number to which the
communicator will dial. See [01] for programming instructions.
[04] 2nd Account Code
The second account code is always transmitted to the 2nd
telephone number. See [02] for programming instructions.
Reporting Codes [05] to [10]
These sections are used to program the communicator
reporting codes. A reporting code is transmitted along with
the account code with each transmission. If the reporting
codes are not programmed, no transmission will be sent
when an event takes place (i.e. alarm, restoral, opening /
closing, trouble, etc.). To prevent a transmission from being
sent for any event in the following sections, leave it
unprogrammed or enter [00] as the reporting code.
Section [05] and [06] each have 6 reporting codes. Sections
[07], [08] and [10] each have 7 reporting codes, while

Zone Restoral Reporting Codes
These reporting codes are used by the communicator to
transmit zone restorals for zones 1 through 6. Use instructions
in Section [05] above as a guide for programming.

[07]
Closing (Arming) Reporting Codes
Partial Closing Reporting Code
Reporting codes 1 to 6 are used to identify closings for
access codes 1 to 6. If partial closing is identified in Section
[14], then alarm codes for manually bypassed zones will be
transmitted when the system is closed with one or more
zones bypassed.
[10]
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
When transmitting in 4/2, 3/1 or any other of the extended
formats, see Section [05] above. The 6 closing codes are
programmed as follows:
[C1], [C2], [C3], [C4], [C5], [C6]
Where the first digit HEX ‘C’ represents a closing signal and
the second digit represents the user access code which was
used to arm the system (HEX ’C’ could be any other number
depending on what is used at the monitoring station).
The closing code transmission takes place after the Exit
Delay time. Therefore, if the system is armed and disarmed
before the expiry of the exit time, no closing transmission will
take place.
The partial closing code, if used, is transmitted in tandem
with the regular closing code to identify the closing as a
partial closing.
When the system has been armed using the Quick-Arm
command [ ][0] or using the Auto-Arm feature, access
code #1 will be transmitted.
∗
[08]
Opening (Disarming) Reporting
Codes After Alarm Reporting Code
The first 6 reporting codes correspond to the 6 user access
codes. When the system is disarmed using one of the access
codes, the corresponding reporting code in this section is
transmitted. See Section [07] above for examples of reporting
code programming.
If the After Alarm Code is programmed, that code will be
transmitted to the monitoring station on opening if an alarm
occurred during previous armed period. This feature is useful
for installations where openings and closings are not reported
normally, but it is desired to have a report to the monitoring
station on opening if an alarm did occur during the previous
armed period. This feature allows the monitoring station to
know when the user is on the premises and available to receive
a report about alarms while the system was closed.
[09]
Priority Alarms and Restorals
These reporting codes are used by the communicator to
transmit the following list of troubles, alarms and restorals.
See Section [05] as a guide for programming.

Maintenance Alarms and Restorals
These reporting codes are used by the communicator to
transmit the following list of alarms and restorals. See Section
[05] as a guide to programming.
Low Battery Alarm.
AC Failure Alarm.
Fuse Failure Alarm.
Low Battery Rrestore.
AC Failure Restore.
Fuse Failure Restore.
Automatic Test Code
The Test Code is not transmitted if periodic downloading is
selected, Section [14], light 3. For Automatic Test Code
Reporting, the time between reports (in days) must be
entered in Section [17] and the time of day for the report must
be entered in Section [19].
[11]
Zone Definitions
As in the reporting codes sections, once this section is
entered, 6 2-digit numbers are required. Each 2-digit
number entered defines how a zone will operate.
Zone Definitions Digit #1
The first digit determines whether the zone will cause a silent
alarm or an audible alarm and whether the zone response will
be fast or slow. Zone response time can be programmed in
Section [17] and can be set from 10 ms to 990 ms The factory
default zone response time is 500 ms. If set at fast, the zone
response time is 10 ms, and if set at slow, the zone response
time is 500 ms or whatever time is set in Section [17].
[0] = slow & audible
[1] = slow & silent
[2] = fast & audible
[3] = fast & silent
Zone Definitions Digit #2
Digit #2 determines the zone type, [0] through [8], as
described below.
[0] Standard Delay Zone has an Entry and Exit Delay and
is normally used for entry/exit doors. The Exit Delay starts
as soon as the panel is armed. The zone may be opened
and closed during the delay time without causing an
alarm. After the Exit Delay time has expired, opening the
zone will start the Entry Delay timer. During the Entry
Delay time, the keypad buzzer will sound steadily to
advise the user that the system should be disarmed. If the
panel is disarmed before the entry time expires, no alarm
will be generated.
The default times for this type of zone are a 30 second
Entry Delay and a 120 second Exit Delay. The Entry and
Exit Delays may be independently programmed in Section
[17] for periods from 1 second to 255 seconds. All zones
programmed as type [0] will have the Entry and Exit
Delays as programmed in Section [17] or the default
times if Section [17] is not programmed.
[1] Instant Zone is normally used for door and window
contacts and has the standard Exit Delay but is instant
when opened after the Exit Delay expires. The Exit Delay
will be the default time of 120 seconds or the time as
established in programming Section [17].
[2] Interior Zone is normally used with interior motion
detectors and has the standard Exit Delay time. The zone
also has the standard Entry Delay time provided that a
delay zone has been tripped first. If the premises are
entered without coming through a “delay” entrance, and
a type [2] zone is tripped, an immediate alarm will be
generated.
[3] Interior Home-away Zone operates the same as the
type [2] zone with the following exception. If the system
is armed and the delay zone is NOT tripped during the Exit
Delay time, the type [3] zone will be bypassed. Instead of
the interior portion of an interior Home-away zone, a
Home-away zone can have a delay equal to the standard
Entry and Exit Delay when Section [32], light 3 is ON. This
will affect all Home-away zones when they are not
bypassed by [ ][1][ ][9] arming, or by arming and not
leaving the premises. If Home-away zones are
automatically bypassed or [ ][9] arming bypassed and
the user then enters [ ][1], the Home-aways will then
have a delay.
[4] 24 Hour Bell is active at all times and will create an alarm
if the panel is armed or disarmed. This zone will always
activate the bell/siren output.
[5] 24 Hour Bell/Buzzer operates as the type [4] except the
bell/siren output is activated only when the panel is armed
and only the keypad buzzer is activated while the panel
is disarmed.
[6] 24 Hour Buzzer operates as the type [4] except only the
buzzer will be activated in the armed or disarmed mode.
[7] Auxiliary Delay Zone operates the same as the type [0]
zone except the Entry/Exit Delays can be independently
set in Section [18]. This zone type is useful when a zone
with an Entry and/or Exit Delay is required that is different
from the standard times as established for type [0] zones
in Section [17]. If Section [32], light 5 is ON it will enable
the system to be armed even if the auxiliary delay zone is
open (“Ready” light ON). Also, the system can be armed
with the auxiliary delay zone closed and then it can be
opened before the Auxiliary Exit Delay has expired. In
both cases the auxiliary delay zone will not become active
until both the Auxiliary Exit Delay has expired and the
zone is closed.
[8] Fire Zone Although a common fire signal is reported,
any number of the 6 zones may be programmed as a fire
zone. A fire zone is a supervised (N.O. alarm initiating
contacts), end-of-line resistor circuit designed to accept
latching 4-wire smoke detectors. See the fire circuit
installation drawing.
On alarm, fire zone shorted, the bell / siren will sound
using the temporal fire pattern or will pulse to indicate
that a fire zone has been activated. Transmission by the
digital communicator is delayed 30 seconds. If the
alarm is acknowledged before the 30 second delay has
expired, pressing the [#] key will silence the alarm and
abort the transmission. If the alarm is NOT acknowledged
within the 30 second period, transmission will proceed
and cannot be aborted. If the alarm has been silenced
and all smoke detectors are not restored to normal, the
alarm will re-sound after 90 seconds; 30 seconds after
that, the communicator will transmit. If the alarm resounds, it may again be silenced by pressing the [#] key
and the communicator transmission will be aborted if the
alarm is silenced within the 30 second transmission
delay period. Temporal fire pattern is:
∗
0.5 sec. ON, 0.5 sec. OFF,
0.5 sec. ON, 0.5 sec. OFF,
0.5 sec. ON, 1.5 sec. OFF.
To restore the smoke detectors to normal, clear all
products of combustion from the detectors and perform
a reset by pressing the [ ] then [7] keys. See Section
[24] for programming the PGM terminal for smoke detector
reset. Pressing [ ][7] will remove power from the smoke
detectors for 5 seconds; if the detectors are clear of
smoke, they will return to normal. If the detectors still have
smoke in them, the alarm will re-sound and the sequence
described above will repeat.
For an open on any zone programmed for fire, the
“Trouble” light will come ON and the keypad sounder will
beep every 10 seconds. The keypad trouble buzzer will
sound and the “Trouble” light will come ON regardless of
whether the panel is armed or disarmed. The
communicator will transmit the trouble condition if
programmed in Section [09]. The audible trouble indication
may be silenced by pressing the [#] key. The “Trouble”
light will only go OFF when all the fire zone troubles are
cleared. To determine the type of trouble, press [ ][2].

[15] Communication Variables
Once this section is entered, two 2-digit numbers are
expected. Do not press the [#] key while entering data. The
first 2-digit number defines the number of attempts (alarm
and restoral pairs) per zone that the communicator will
make before it shuts down for that zone (swinger shutdown).
The number of attempts is for the period as defined in the
1st System Option Code Section, zone light 2. The number
of attempts may be programmed from ‘00’ to ‘99’, where ‘00’
means the communicator will never shut down. The fire
zone cannot be shut down - it always transmits.
The second 2-digit number defines the delay before
transmission. The delay if for zones defined as burglary
zones only. 24 hour zones or the fire zone will not be delayed.
The time may be programmed from ‘00’ to ‘99’ seconds,
where ‘00’ means no delay.
[16] Zone Bypass Mask
Use the same method of programming as used in Section
[12]. If the zone light is ON, the zone can be bypassed; if
OFF, the zone cannot be bypassed using the [ ][1] command.
The fire zone cannot be bypassed.
∗
[17]
System Times
There are 6 system times which can be programmed in this
section, and each entry requires a 3-digit number. Do not
press the [#] key during data entry.
[1] Entry delay time (001 to 255 seconds) This value
determines the standard Entry Delay time. The factory
default entry time is 30 seconds. See Section [11] for
zone definitions.
[2] Exit delay time (001 to 255 seconds) This value
determines the standard Exit Delay time. The factory
default exit time is 120 seconds. For zone definitions,
see Section [11].
[3] Bell cut-off time (001 to 255 minutes) This value
determines the time the bell / siren will sound before
automatically turning off. The factory default bell cut-off
time is 4 minutes.
[4] AC fail transmission delay (001 to 255 minutes) This
value determines the length of time before the
communicator will transmit an AC failure report. The
factory default time is 30 minutes.
[5] “Slow” zone response time (001 to 255 × 10 ms) This
value determines the “slow” zone response time and
provides times from 10 ms to 2550 ms. The factory
default “slow” zone response time is 500 ms. NOTE: The
“fast” zone response time is fixed at 10 ms. See Section
[11] Zone Definitions.
[6] Test transmission cycle time (001 to 255 days) This
value determines the frequency, in days, of the test
transmission either via the communicator or by calling
the downloading computer. The factory default setting
is 30 days. See Section [14] 3rd System Option Code,
light 3.
[18]
Auxiliary Delay Zone
Entry / Exit Times
This section requires two 3-digit entries to establish the
Auxiliary Entry and Exit Delay times. Do not press the [#] key
during data entry. The default Entry Delay is 45 seconds
and may be changed to any time from 001 seconds to 255
seconds. The default Exit Delay is 120 seconds and may be
changed to any time between 001 to 255 seconds.
For auxiliary delay zone times to be effective, the zone must
be programmed as a type [7] in the Zone Definition Section
[11].
[19]
System Clock Times
This section requires two 4-digit entries to set the Automatic
Arming Time of Day and the Test Transmission Time of Day.
Do not press the [#] key during data entry. Factory default
for both these times is ‘9999’; that is, NO automatic arming
or test transmission will take place even if those functions
are enabled. VALID times must be entered in this section
before these features will function.
The system clock is in military time. Two digits from ‘00’ to
‘23’ are entered for the hour of the day and two digits from
‘00’ to ‘59’ are entered for the minute of the hour.
Test transmission or periodic downloading is selected in
Section [14] 3rd System Option Code, Light 3. The cycle
time in days for the test transmission or periodic downloading
is set in Section [17] System Times. For a test transmission
using the communicator, an automatic test code should be
entered in Section [10]. For periodic downloading or a test
transmission using the communicator, a valid transmission
time must be entered in Section [19].
NOTE: Upon power-up, if either the Auto-Arm or the test
transmission time has a valid time entered, then a loss-oftime trouble for the system clock will be initiated. Enter [ ][2]
to view the trouble. Light 6 will be ON. If neither the Auto-Arm
or test transmission has a valid time, then the setting of the
system clock does not matter.

SPEED = 10 baud
20 BPS is the standard fast format used on the DCI / Franklin
/ Sescoa and Vertex receivers. DATA = 1800 Hz; KISSOFF
= 2300 Hz; SPEED = 20 baud
Radionics Format
For conventional Radionics 3/1 format, the communications
mode should be set on either Radionics rounds [B] or
Radionics parity [C]. The extended version of the Radionics
format is normally used. The following guidelines are provided
to help in configuring the PC1500 for Radionics format.
1. The customer account code must be only 3 digits with a
zero making up the 4th digit (i.e. Enter 1230 to program
an account code of 123).
15
2. The zone alarm reporting codes must all be single digit
numerical codes with no extended 2nd round being sent
(i.e. Zone 1 = 10, Zone 2 = 20... Zone 6 = 60). The zero
in the 2nd digit position tells the PC1500 not to send an
extended round.
3. All other non-alarm reporting codes must be set up to
send an extended 2nd round. The 1st digit of the
reporting code is used to identify the event while the 2nd
or extended digit is used to associate the event with a
particular item (i.e. A reporting code of E3 means restore
zone 3. E = restore, 3 = zone 3).
4. The following is a list of 1st digit identifiers that should be
used with the Radionics format.
• Restorals “E”
i.e. E3 = restore zone 3
• Openings “B”
i.e. B2 = opening by user 2
• Closings “C”
i.e. C4 = closing by user 4
• Troubles “F”
i.e. F5 = trouble from source 5
• Miscellaneous “D”
i.e. D1 = partial closing

Programmable Output Options
(PGM Terminal)
The PGM output can be programmed in this section to
operate in response to various panel operations. The output
pulse connects the PGM terminal to the negative power rail.
[01]
Ground Start Pulse
This option provides a 2-second output pulse before
dialling begins to obtain the dial tone on Ground Start
telephone equipment.
[02]
Utility Output, no Access Code
When activated by entering the [ ][7] command, the
PGM output will go low for 5 seconds and the keypad
buzzer will sound.
∗
[03]
Utility Output, any Access Code
The same as [02], except the command is [ ][7] [any
valid access code].
∗
[04]
5-Second Reset Pulse
When this option is selected, the PGM output is normally
low. That is, it is just the reverse of all other options which
are normally high and go low when activated. This option
is normally used as the negative return for power to 4-wire
smoke detectors (positive comes from the AUX + terminal).
To activate this output (to reset smoke detectors), enter
the [ ][7] command. The PGM terminal will go high
(open circuit), and thus remove power from the devices
connected. The keypad buzzer will sound for the 5second period.
∗
[05]
Courtesy Pulse
This option provides an output which follows the Entry and
Exit Delays. It can be used to turn on a courtesy light near
the exit door for the duration of the Entry/Exit Delays.
[06]
Keypad Buzzer Follow Mode
The PGM output will go low as long as the keypad buzzer
is ON for “24 Hour Buzzer Zone”, “Door Chime”, “Entry
Delay” and “Auto-Arm Alert”.
16
[07]
System Status (Armed / Disarmed)
The PGM output switches to and remains at ground as
long as the panel is armed. The output goes high (open)
while the panel is disarmed.
[08]
Strobe Output (Latched Alarm Output)
The PGM switches to ground on an alarm and remains
low until the panel is disarmed. It can be used to indicate
that an alarm has occurred before entering the premises.
[09]
Failure to Communicate
The PGM output switches to ground if the systems fails to
communicate after 8 attempts to each phone number
that will be tried according to the communicator call
direction options. The output remains low until a successful
communication takes place or until trouble #4 is cleared
from the keypad. This option can be used to tie two
systems together so that if one fails to communicate, the
other system will report the failure.
[0A] PGM ON during Entry Delay
The PGM output will be switched on for the duration of the
Entry Delay. This option may be used to provide lighting
in the entrance area, or to activate a device when the
Entry Delay begins.
[0B] PGM ON during Exit Delay
The PGM output will be switched on for the duration of the
Exit Delay. This option may be used to provide lighting in
the exit area, or to activate a device when the Exit Delay
begins.
[0C] LINKS1000 Interface
This option configures the system for use with the
LINKS1000 Cellular Alarm Communicator. Refer to the
LINKS Installation Manual for further programming
instructions.
[25]
Communicator Call Direction
This section requires four single digit entries using digits 0 to
3 only. This section defines how the communicator will call
the telephone numbers programmed in sections [01] and
[03] to report the following events:
•
Zone Alarms and Restorals
•
Access Codes Openings and Closings
•
Priority Alarms and Restorals
•
Maintenance Alarms and Restorals
Enter one digit from the list below for each of the above
categories. Factory default = 1 for all 4 code groups.
[0] Disables the function (no transmission for the group)
[1] Call 1st phone number and back-up to the 2nd phone
number when Section [13] light 1 is set to OFF and the
panel has made 8 unsuccessful tries on the 1st phone
number.
[2] Call the 2nd phone number only
[3] Always call both phone numbers
If the [#] key is pressed during data entry, you will be returned
to the installer’s programming mode and data for this section
will not be saved.
[26]
Downloading Telephone Number
This telephone number is used by the panel to call the
downloading computer when a request to call is make by
entering [ ][4] or for an auto-download. See Section [14]
3rd System Option Code, lights 2 and 3. See Section [01] 1st

Entry and Exit Delay Urgency: When the urgency
option is selected for the audible Entry Delay, the keypad
will sound a constant tone during the Entry Delay. During
the last 10 seconds of the Entry Delay, the keypad will
sound a pulsing tone to warn that the delay is about to
expire.

LINKS1000 Test Reporting Code
Cellular communications through the LINKS1000 Cellular
Alarm Transmitter will be tested periodically according to
the test transmission times programmed in Sections [17]
and [19]. The reporting codes programmed in Section
[35] will be transmitted during the cellular transmission
test.
When the cellular test transmission is completed, the
Automatic Test Code programmed in Section [10] will be
transmitted over the regular telephone line.

Keypad Lockout Control
Program two 2-digit numbers in this section.
The first entry determines how many invalid codes may be
entered before the keypad is locked out and will not
accept any further entries. Program a number from 00 to
99; 00 disables the keypad lockout function.
The second entry determines how long, in minutes, the
keypad will be locked out once the programmed
number of invlaid codes are entered. Program a time
from 00 to 99 minutes.

Installer’s Lockout Enable
This feature is enabled by entering [90] while in the installer’s
programming mode. A factory default (hardware or software)
will not reset the installer’s code or the download access
code once this feature is enabled. A panel that has this
feature enabled will give a distinct audible indication upon
power-up. This indication is the phone line relay clicking 10
times. Make sure that your new installer’s code has been
entered correctly before enabling this feature because there
is no way of re-entering the programming mode without the
new installer’s code. Remember that even a reset to the
factory default will not change the installer’s code back to the
default.
[91]
Installer’s Lockout Disable
Entering [91] when in the installer’s programming mode will
disable the installer’s lockout feature.
NOTE: Panels returned to DSC with the installer’s lockout
feature enabled and no other apparent problems will be
subject to an additional service charge.

WARNING Please Read Carefully
Note to Installers
This warning contains vital information. As the only individual in contact with system users, it is your responsibility to bring each item in this warning to the attention of the users
of this system.
S y s t e m Fa i l u r e s
This system has been carefully designed to be as effective as possible. There are circumstances, however, involving fire, burglary, or other types of emergencies where it may not
provide protection. Any alarm system of any type may be compromised deliberately or may fail to operate as expected for a variety of reasons. Some but not all of these reasons may
be:
■ Inadequate Installation
A security system must be installed properly in order to provide adequate protection. Every installation should be evaluated by a security professional to ensure that all access points and areas
are covered. Locks and latches on windows and doors must be secure and operate as intended. Windows, doors, walls, ceilings and other building materials must be of sufficient strength and
construction to provide the level of protection expected. A reevaluation must be done during and after any construction activity. An evaluation by the fire and/or police department is highly
recommended if this service is available.
■ Criminal Knowledge
This system contains security features which were known to be effective at the time of manufacture. It is possible for persons with criminal intent to develop techniques which reduce the
effectiveness of these features. It is important that a security system be reviewed periodically to ensure that its features remain effective and that it be updated or replaced if it is found that it
does not provide the protection expected.
■ Access by Intr uders
Intruders may enter through an unprotected access point, circumvent a sensing device, evade detection by moving through an area of insufficient coverage, disconnect a warning
device, or interfere with or prevent the proper operation of the system.
■ Po w e r Fa i l u r e
Control units, intrusion detectors, smoke detectors and many other security devices require an adequate power supply for proper operation. If a device operates from batteries, it is possible for
the batteries to fail. Even if the batteries have not failed, they must be charged, in good condition and installed correctly. If a device operates only by AC power, any interruption, however brief, will
render that device inoperative while it does not have power. Power interruptions of any length are often accompanied by voltage fluctuations which may damage electronic equipment such as a
security system. After a power interruption has occurred, immediately conduct a complete system test to ensure that the system operates as intended.
■ Fa i l u r e o f R e p l a c e a b l e B a t t e r i e s
This system’s wireless transmitters have been designed to provide several years of battery life under normal conditions. The expected battery life is a function of the device environment, usage
and type. Ambient conditions such as high humidity, high or low temperatures, or large temperature fluctuations may reduce the expected battery life. While each transmitting device has a low
battery monitor which identifies when the batteries need to be replaced, this monitor may fail to operate as expected. Regular testing and maintenance will keep the system in good operating
condition.
■ C o m p r o m i s e o f R a d i o Fr e q u e n c y ( Wi r e l e s s ) D e v i c e s
Signals may not reach the receiver under all circumstances which could include metal objects placed on or near the radio path or deliberate jamming or other inadvertent radio signal
interference.
■ System Users
A user may not be able to operate a panic or emergency switch possibly due to permanent or temporary physical disability, inability to reach the device in time, or unfamiliarity with
the correct operation. It is important that all system users be trained in the correct operation of the alarm system and that they know how to respond when the system indicates an alarm.
■ S m o ke D e t e c t o r s
Smoke detectors that are a part of this system may not properly alert occupants of a fire for a number of reasons, some of which follow. The smoke detectors may have been improperly
installed or positioned. Smoke may not be able to reach the smoke detectors, such as when the fire is in a chimney, walls or roofs, or on the other side of closed doors. Smoke detectors may
not detect smoke from fires on another level of the residence or building.
Every fire is different in the amount of smoke produced and the rate of burning. Smoke detectors cannot sense all types of fires equally well. Smoke detectors may not provide timely
warning of fires caused by carelessness or safety hazards such as smoking in bed, violent explosions, escaping gas, improper storage of flammable materials, overloaded electrical circuits,
children playing with matches or arson.
Even if the smoke detector operates as intended, there may be circumstances when there is insufficient warning to allow all occupants to escape in time to avoid injury or death.
■ Motion Detectors
Motion detectors can only detect motion within the designated areas as shown in their respective installation instructions. They cannot discriminate between intruders and intended
occupants. Motion detectors do not provide volumetric area protection. They have multiple beams of detection and motion can only be detected in unobstructed areas covered by these
beams. They cannot detect motion which occurs behind walls, ceilings, floor, closed doors, glass partitions, glass doors or windows. Any type of tampering whether intentional or
unintentional such as masking, painting, or spraying of any material on the lenses, mirrors, windows or any other part of the detection system will impair its proper operation.
Passive infrared motion detectors operate by sensing changes in temperature. However their effectiveness can be reduced when the ambient temperature rises near or above body
temperature or if there are intentional or unintentional sources of heat in or near the detection area. Some of these heat sources could be heaters, radiators, stoves, barbeques,
fireplaces, sunlight, steam vents, lighting and so on.
■ Wa r n i n g D e v i c e s
Warning devices such as sirens, bells, horns, or strobes may not warn people or waken someone sleeping if there is an intervening wall or door. If warning devices are located on a different level of the residence
or premise, then it is less likely that the occupants will be alerted or awakened. Audible warning devices may be interfered with by other noise sources such as stereos, radios, televisions, air conditioners or
other appliances, or passing traffic. Audible warning devices, however loud, may not be heard by a hearing-impaired person.
■ Te l e p h o n e L i n e s
If telephone lines are used to transmit alarms, they may be out of service or busy for certain periods of time. Also an intruder may cut the telephone line or defeat its operation by more
sophisticated means which may be difficult to detect.
■ I n s u f f i c i e n t Ti m e
There may be circumstances when the system will operate as intended, yet the occupants will not be protected from the emergency due to their inability to respond to the warnings in a
timely manner. If the system is monitored, the response may not occur in time to protect the occupants or their belongings.
■ C o m p o n e n t Fa i l u r e
Although every effort has been made to make this system as reliable as possible, the system may fail to function as intended due to the failure of a component.
■ I n a d e q u a t e Te s t i n g
Most problems that would prevent an alarm system from operating as intended can be found by regular testing and maintenance. The complete system should be tested weekly and
immediately after a break-in, an attempted break-in, a fire, a storm, an earthquake, an accident, or any kind of construction activity inside or outside the premises. The testing should
include all sensing devices, keypads, consoles, alarm indicating devices and any other operational devices that are part of the system.
■ Security and Insurance
Regardless of its capabilities, an alarm system is not a substitute for property or life insurance. An alarm system also is not a substitute for property owners, renters, or other occupants to
act prudently to prevent or minimize the harmful effects of an emergency situation.
