Release Notes
August 2004
Release Notes for Firmware Version 2.10
Remote Programming
Use RPS-INT’L version 3.7.131 or later to program
the DS7240V2-EXP and DS7220V2-EXP control
Arming an Unlocked Door: A user command
latches a Door Access Control Module’s (DACM)
door open, or a fire alarm latches a DACM’s door
open. The control panel allows the area to be
armed when the door is latched open.
Renewing One-Time PINs ([#][5][3]): A user
should only renew one-time PINs in the areas to
which the user is assigned. If a user presses
[#][5][3], a user can renew any one-time PIN
regardless of area assignment, and all one-time
PINs can be renewed by pressing [0][*].
“Recent Closing Reports Enabled” Option:
The Recent Closing {19 to 20} Reports Enabled”
option in Address 0261 should send the original
alarm report and the Recent Close report for
alarms within two minutes of arming the control
panel. Instead, this option sends only the Recent
Close report.
Bell Time Output Function: The Bell Time
output function (1|5) should activate on any
alarm, even if the zone in alarm is not
programmed for alarm output, but it only
activates if the zone in alarm is programmed for
alarm output.
SafeCom: The control panel does not work
reliably when using SafeCom if the format
parameter is set to either SIA 300 or SIA 300 with
Sked Time/Daylight Saving Time: Do not set a
Sked’s time to coincide with Daylight Saving
Time. The Sked does not operate as expected.
Disabling Alarm Output Bypasses Alarm
Event Abort Setting: If the alarm output for a
controlled, non-fire zone is disabled, an alarm on
this zone reports immediately. Any setting made
for Alarm Event Abort is ignored. If the alarm
output is enabled, the Alarm Event Abort setting
is followed. This is the intended operation.
Defer Test Report Option Not Operating As
Expected: The “Defer Test Report if Other
Report Sent in Test Interval” option currently
causes the control panel to suppress test reports
until the end of the next test interval.
Alarms do not Clear after Reset: Alarms only
clear from alarm memory after an arming cycle.
Silenced Alarms in RPS do not appear on
Keypad Display: There is no visual display of a
silenced alarm on the keypad when an alarm is
silenced through RPS.
System Reset Required After Clearing Zone
Tamper Alarm: If a zone tamper alarm
condition is cleared at the end of bell time, press
[System Reset] before arming the control panel.
Area 1 Common Area Sending Forced Arm
Reports: The control panel sends a Forced Arm
report to the central station when Area 1 is
programmed as a common area and the last area
was armed with no zone faults/troubles or system
faults/troubles existing prior to arming. In this
case, the control panel should send a normal
closing report once the last area arms.
Known Issues in Firmware
Version 2.10
Controlled Zones with Alarm Output Disabled
Do Not Follow Alarm Event Abort Timer:
Controlled non-fire zones with alarm output
disabled and alarm event abort enabled report
alarms immediately instead of waiting the time
entered in the Alarm Event Abort parameter.
Controlled non-fire zones with alarm output and
alarm event abort enabled follow the alarm event
abort timer before reporting alarms.
DX4020 Netcom interface module: When using
the DX4020 Netcom interface module and the
control panel is programmed to send events to
both destinations 1 and 2 using alternate
communications (network), there may be a
possibility that a single event will report twice at
the ARC. This possibility will be eliminated when
using DX4020 Netcom interface modules with
firmware versions 2.30 or later.
Perimeter Only and Partial On Display: The
DS7445i LED Keypad currently does not
differentiate between Perimeter Only and Partial
On arming modes.
Delay Alarm Output: This option currently does
not work as described in the programming section
of the control panel’s documentation. Alarm
output begins at the start of the event instead of
waiting until communication to the central station
receiver is complete, or there are two failed
attempts at communication.
Parameters Changed Report: After changing
control panel parameters, the correct procedure
to end the RPS session is to check Reset Panel.
The control panel might ignore some or all of the
parameter changes if the Reset Panel box is not
checked when ending a remote programming
session. If changes are made to the control panel’s
parameters through RPS and the remote
programming session is ended with the Reset
Panel box checked, the control panel does not
send a Parameters Changed report. If the remote
programming session is ended without checking
the Reset Panel box, the control panel sends the
Parameters Changed report.
Arming from RPS: When arming from a keypad,
users can change the control panel from any
armed state to another armed state without first
disarming it. When changing armed states with
RPS diagnostics, the control panel must be
disarmed first before changing to the new-armed
Call RPS at Test Time: The “Call RPS at Test
Time” feature is not yet implemented in the
control panel’s firmware.
Known Issues in RPS-INT’L
Unbypassing a Zone from RPS does not
reactivate Zone: Using RPS to unbypass a
controlled zone when the system is armed does
not rearm that zone. The system continues to
ignore faults on the zone. No alarms from that
zone are generated. 24-hour zones unbypass
correctly. Use RPS to return the zone to active
0. Disarm the area in which the zone is
0. Unbypass the zone.
0. Re-arm the area.
Changing RF ID: RPS allows you to change the
RF ID for a location without resetting the learned
characteristics for the transmitter associated with
the ID. For example, the control panel is
supervising an RF3401E Wireless Point
Transmitter, and the RF3401E’s reed
switch/magnet and sensor loop are in use. The
magnet must be in place and the sensor loop
must be normal for the transmitter to be normal
(not faulted). If you enter an ID for a new
transmitter for this location, both the reed switch
and the sensor loop must be normal before the
zone state is declared normal. To use only the
reed switch (or only the sensor loop), the ID for
the location must be removed at a keypad by
using the Installer’s RF Menu. See the control
panel’s documentation for instructions.
