Modes Allowed by Control Panel
NOTICE!
When using the PSTN (Contact ID) over GSM mode on a GV3 Series control panel, ensure that
the “C” character is dialed before the central station’s phone number. The "C" character
disables dial tone detection after the first DTMF digit is dialed.
NOTICE!
Bosch recommends that when using GSM mode, always enter a 10-digit phone number in the
control panel. This is because the SIM card might have originated in a different area code from
the installation location.
NOTICE!
When using the PSTN (Contact ID) over GSM mode, the control panel must be set up for
DTMF (tone) dialing only.
4.1
Use Short Message Service (SMS) to Configure the
ITS-DX4020-G
The ITS-DX4020-G supports configuration by SMS. You can send the SMS via mobile phone to
the ITS-DX4020-G. The SMS string follows a specific format. If the configuration message
exceeds 160 characters, you must send multiple messages. Refer to Section 4.1.2 Compose
the Configuration SMS, page 19 for details.
When the ITS-DX4020-G receives the final valid part of an SMS message, it accepts the
configuration. The ITS-DX4020-G waits as long as the CONFIG MODE jumpers are shorted
together with the supplied jumper plug.
NOTICE!
To allow the receipt of SMS data, the CONFIG MODE jumper pins must be shorted together
with the supplied jumper plug. Refer to Table 4.6, Page 21, for LED activity.
If the CONFIG MODE jumper pins are not shorted together, incoming SMS data is discarded.
4.1.1
Enter CONFIG MODE
Ensure that the CONFIG MODE jumper pins are shorted together with the supplied jumper
plug. The STATUS, CELL IP, and AUDIO ACT LEDs start a scrolling pattern.

Compose the Configuration SMS
Use the appropriate SMS template for the selected mode of operation, and compose the
configuration SMS message on your mobile phone. SMS can contain only 160 characters.
Refer to Section Multiple SMS Messages (for Messages Longer than 160 Characters), page 20 for
instructions for sending a multiple SMS configuration.
The templates below contain only the essential configuration IDs. For additional configuration
IDs, refer to Table 4.9, Page 30.
NOTICE!
Separate each ID or value pair with a line feed (<LF>), a carriage return (<CR> or
<
ENTER>), or a semi-colon <;>. Because of phone and carrier differences, Bosch
recommends using semi-colons to create and send SMS messages (for example,
%1;1=4020G;10=Airnet1;14=88;17=2;!). To allow spanning of configuration across multiple
messages, each SMS starts with the sequence number followed by the command line
separator.
Any of these characters is acceptable to separate command lines. Refer to your cellular
phone’s documentation for available characters.
Refer to Table 4.1, Page 18 for information about the modes allowed for your control panel.

When low signal strength, SIM card missing, or
unable to register on the network is detected for
longer than the time entered in this parameter, the
ITS-DX4020-G stops responding on the bus to
indicate a Trouble condition to the control panel. No
information is sent to the control panel. The next
attempt by the control panel to poll, or send a
message to the ITS-DX4020-G, fails. The control
panel then creates a trouble condition. When signal
strength is detected, it must remain restored for the
amount of time entered in this parameter before the

Polling Configurations
Plan carefully when selecting the control panel poll time, ACK wait times, control panel
retries, ITS-DX4020-G GPRS ACK timeouts, and D6x00 Receiver poll and ACK wait times.
Having the wrong or improper settings could cause trouble conditions when the network
carrier performs maintenance, and increased data volumes that could effect your monthly
cost. Your settings for these parameters determine how the system works, but depend on the
security level needed.
4.3.1
High Security Application (bank, jewelry store, UL fire, and so on)
Polling times are typically less than 20 min. Path integrity is critical, and short interruptions in
network service are indicated at the premise and central station. The following High Security
Application recommendation assumes the ITS-DX4020-G is the primary communication device
with no backup.
Control Panel Settings
–
Poll Rate: 60 sec
–
ACK Wait: 13 sec
–
Retry Count: 5
ITS-DX4020-G Settings
–
GPRS ACK Timeout: ACK wait (13) x Retry Count (5) + ACK Wait (13) = 78 sec
–
GPRS Session Timeout: Must be greater than control panel poll time (60 sec) + GPRS
ACK timeout (78 sec). The minimum GPRS session timeout setting is 1 hour; the default
4 hour setting is acceptable.

4.3.2
GPRS/GSM IP Communicator
Medium Security Application
Polling times are typically 1 to 4 hours. Path integrity is important, and short interruptions in
network service might be indicated at the premise and central station. The following Medium
Security Application recommendation assumes the ITS-DX4020-G is the primary
communication device with no backup.
Control Panel Settings
–
Poll Rate: 3 hours
–
ACK Wait: 300 sec (5 min)
–
Retry Count: 5
ITS-DX4020-G Settings
–
GPRS ACK Timeout: ACK wait (300 sec) x 2 = 600 sec
By setting the GPRS ACK timeout less than the retry count, the ITS-DX4020-G can
reconnect to the network if the carrier dropped the connection or for short maintenance
interruption outages.
–
GPRS Session Timeout: Must be greater than control panel poll time (3 hours) + ACK
wait (5 min) x Retry Count (5) + ACK Wait (5 min) = 3 hours and 30 min. The GPRS
session timeout default setting of 4 hours is acceptable.
NOTICE!
If you use a control panel poll rate of 4 hours, change the default GPRS session timeout to
5 hours. Ensure that your SIM service provider’s session timeout is greater than 5 hours.
Check the information that came with the SIM card. If the carrier’s session timeout is less
than your GPRS session timeout, the communication path is dropped by the carrier and the
event message is not received until a new connection is made, delaying your event messages
from being delivered when expected. To ensure the communication path is not dropped, set
the poll rate to less than the carrier timeout (for example, 2 hours).
D6x00 Receiver Settings
–
Control Panel Poll Rate: 4 hours
–
ACK Wait: 15 sec
NOTICE!
To set the control panel poll rate by the hour, ensure that the D6x00 Receiver has D6200CD
V1.35 firmware or later.
Because the Bosch D6x00 Receivers only have hours and seconds settings, the receiver would
have to be set to 4 hours instead of 3 hours and 30 min. The receiver can only support up to
255 sec maximum for the ACK wait time.

Backup or Low Security Application (residential or other once-a-day
reporting location)
Polling times are typically 12 to 24 hours. Path integrity is only tested once or twice a day, and
short interruptions in network service are generally not indicated at the premise and central
station. Using settings similar to the following allows the system to recover from short
outages without causing trouble conditions at the premise. The following Backup or Low
Security Application recommendation assumes the ITS-DX4020-G is the primary
communication device with a different technology backup (PSTN or Wired IP).

ITS-DX4020-G Settings
–
GPRS ACK Timeout: ACK wait (300 sec) x 2 = 600 sec
By setting the GPRS ACK timeout less than the retry count, the ITS-DX4020-G has time to
reconnect to the network if the carrier dropped the connection or for short maintenance
interruption outages.
–
GPRS Session Timeout: Must be greater than control panel poll time (24 hours) + ACK
wait (5 min) x Retry Count (5) + ACK Wait (5 min) = 24 hours 55 min. This property’s
default 4 hour setting must change. Check with the SIM service provider to determine the
maximum time allowed for a session. Your GPRS session timeout must be less than this
value.
NOTICE!
Several SIM service providers only support up to 24 hour session timeout. Check the
information that came with the SIM card. If the carrier’s session timeout is less than your
GPRS session timeout, the communication path is dropped by the carrier and the event
message is not received until a new connection is made, delaying your event messages from
being delivered when expected. To ensure the communication path is not dropped, set the
poll rate to less than the carrier timeout (for example, 18 hours).
D6x00 Receiver Settings
–
Control Panel Poll Rate: 25 hours
–
ACK Wait: 15 sec
NOTICE!
The D6x00 Receiver must use D6200CD V1.35 or later to support hour selections.
NOTICE!
Signal outages can be caused by routine upgrades and maintenance of the mobile towers. On
average, these outages can last from 1 to 15 minutes. One option to minimize the number of
signal failures caused by these outages, reduce the poll rate setting in the control panel to half
of the poll rate setting in the central station receiver.

SIM Card Data Usage
NOTICE!
The security level you need determines which SIM card data plan you should use. If you obtain
a data plan for once-a-day test messages, but you set up polling for 60 sec, you will receive a
larger-than-expected cellular bill. It is important that you chose a data plan that matches your
application.
–
Poll Message or Event Message: ~100 bytes
–
RPS Sessions: This setting depends on the RPS tasks you perform (for example, full
upload/download of programming data, history retrieval, diagnostics) and the number of
times you access the control panel. On average, such usage could range from 10 kb to
100 kb.
Other factors such as the number of session timeouts received and so on will also increase
the data usage.
Based on 60 sec polling and 5 events/day, you can expect to use ~5 MB of data per month not
including RPS usage.

GSM Trouble Indication
The ITS-DX4020-G module activates the phone voltage after GSM registration finishes. The
module removes the phone voltage if it detects a communication problem when being used in
PSTN (Contact ID) Over GSM Mode. If all trouble conditions restore, the phone voltage is
automatically reapplied. This allows legacy control panels with phone line voltage monitors to
support the module and display communication trouble signals. The removal and restoral of
the phone voltage from a trouble condition is controlled by the trouble reporting delay time
parameter.
The following conditions cause the phone voltage to be removed:
–
5.2
SIM missing
–
Low signal strength
–
Not able to register on the GSM network
Firmware Version
Use the LED DIS function to determine the firmware version of the ITS-DX4020-G module
without a USB connection. When you first install the LED Disable jumper, the LED flashes the
firmware version as a series of three flashes (for example, 1 - 4 - 3 flashes signifies
firmware version 1.4.3).

GPRS/GSM IP Communicator
Radio Registration
Description:
Failed to register or reregister on the wireless network. This mode occurs if registration never
occurred and 8 min has elapsed. This condition can also occur if only one tower is within
range, and it is not functioning. The LEDs change state but the module continues to try reestablishing communications (this can be a recoverable condition).
Solution:
1.
Check for RF signal strength by shorting the CONFIG MODE jumpers and reading the
GSM Signal Strength LEDs as described in the Signal strength indicators section of
Table 7.2, Page 44.
2.
Bosch recommends connecting the module to the PC using USB so that you can
determine if the module is GSM registered on the network, or if the signal strength is too
low for the module to obtain a GPRS signal. For more information, refer to
Section 4.2.4 USB Main Menu, page 27. If the signal strength is unacceptable, refer to
Section 7.2.18 Wireless Reception Issues, page 50.

If the firmware upgrade is not possible, replace the ITS-DX4020-G.
No Incoming IP Packets
Description:
A GPRS IP address was obtained, but no reply packets from the central station or RPS have
been received. The ITS-DX4020-G has a valid data connection with the wireless service
provider, but did not receive communication from the destination address.
Solution:
Initiate communication from the control panel and wait 5 min. Then, perform the following
tasks:
–
ITS-DX4020-G:
–
Check that the correct GPRS Access Point Name (APN) has been entered. Make sure
there are no spaces in the APN. If you are unsure, re-enter the APN.
–
–
If you are using AES encryption, verify that your key matches the receiver’s key.
Control Panel:
–
If your control panel is not using polling (polling = 0), generate an event to verify
–
Verify that the correct central station receiver IP address and port number are set.
–
Check other specific control panel communication programming options.
operation.
–
D6600 or D6100i Communication Receiver/Gateway:
–
–
Verify that the account is set up correctly in the receiver.
If the account is set up, verify communications is enabled and resynchronize the
account to make sure the control panel has the correct anti-substitution key.
–
If this is the first installation (account at the receiver or if all accounts failed), check
the network firewall.
–
7.2.13
Wireless Service Provider:
–
Verify with the wireless service provider that a network outage did not occur.
–
Verify that the wireless service provider’s network firewall setup is correct.
Control Panel Bus Problem
Description:
The control panel bus was not detected at power up, or the unit is programmed for GSM
(PSTN) mode and has detected the control panel bus wiring is connected to a device. This
state only lasts 30 sec, and then changes to a double flash.
Solution:
1.
Check for complete bus wiring to the control panel. Refer to Section 7.2.8 Control Panel
Bus, page 47.
2.
If in GSM mode, make sure the data bus wires are not connected or touching any metal
surfaces.

Radio Initializing or No Signal Strength
Description:
No reading is available (for example, the radio is resetting).
Solution:
The installation location of the wireless antenna is not optimal, or the wireless service
provider is experiencing technical difficulties.
1.
Verify that you have the antenna attached to a metal surface and that there is a minimum
of 4 in. (10 cm) from the base of the antenna in all directions.
2.
Check the antenna connection at the module.
3.
Install the CONFIG jumper so that you can monitor the GSM signal LEDs.
4.
Relocate the antenna on a metal surface, such as the top of the control panel enclosure.
5.
Check the signal on a mobile phone from the same carrier, if available.
6.
If the signal on the phone is good, but the ITS-DX4020-G signal is not good, replace the
antenna.
7.
If the signal on the mobile phone and on the ITS-DX4020-G are bad, check for outages
with the wireless service provider.
8.
7.2.15
If there are no carrier outages, try using a SIM from a different carrier/service provider.
GSM Network Registration
Description:
The ITS-DX-4020-G is attempting to register on the GSM network. This issue occurs if the
registration never occurred, and can last up to 8 min. After 8 min, the LEDs change to the
double-flash Radio Registration state. This condition can also happen if only one tower is
within RF range and it has an outage. The module continues to attempt to establish
communications.
Solution:
1.
Check for RF signal strength by shorting the CONFIG MODE jumpers and reading the real
time GSM Signal Strength levels.
2.
If the signal strength is unacceptable, refer to Section 7.2.18 Wireless Reception Issues,
page 50.
3.
Replace the SIM card with a known good test card. If the signal strength is acceptable,
confirm that the wireless service provider activated this account and the SIM card
correctly.
4.
7.2.16
If the problem continues, replace the ITS-DX4020-G.
Unacceptable Signal Strength
Description:
The installation location of the wireless antenna is not optimal, or the wireless service
provider is experiencing technical difficulties.
The installation location of the wireless antenna is critical to the signal strength received at
the module. To reduce problems as conditions change, use the highest installation location
possible. Bosch Security Systems, Inc. recommends a signal strength level of Good or higher
for all installations. Refer to Table 3.1, Page 17 for signal strength measurements.
Solution:
To improve the signal strength, perform the recommendations described in
Section 7.2.18 Wireless Reception Issues, page 50.

Marginal RF Signal
Description:
Marginal signal strength: -89 dBm to -83 dBm. Bosch Security Systems, Inc. recommends
trying to improve the signal further because this signal strength is near unacceptable levels.
Poor weather and other environmental conditions can make this signal unacceptable. This
signal level results in a trouble condition if the low signal strength setting for the
ITS-DX4020-G is enabled.
Solution:
To improve the signal strength, try the recommendations described in Section 7.2.18 Wireless
Reception Issues, page 50.
