LINKS1000 GLOSSARY OF TERMS
The following is a description of various terms used with regards to cellular technology.
Electronic Serial Number (ESN)
The ESN is the unique serial number of a cellular phone. It is used by the cellular network to track calls
and increment billing. The ESN is stored at the time of manufacture and cannot be reprogrammed. This
number, in either hexadecimal or decimal, must be loaded into the database of the cellular carrier before
service can begin. The ESN can be found on the shipping box and on the heat sink of the LINKS1000 board.
Cellular Phone Number and Area Code
A 10 digit number (3 digit area code and 7 digit directory number ) identifying the cellular telephone. Do not
enter the phone number of the central monitoring station as the cellular phone number when programming the
LINKS1000.
Initial Paging Channel
A three digit number that specifies which ‘Side’ carrier you have contracted for service. Each cellular service
area only has two sides, A or B. The initial paging channel for Side A is ‘333’ and for Side B is ‘334’.
System ID
Also called the Home Access ID, this 5 digit number identifies the customer's predefined ‘Home System’. This
number refers to a geographic area and is used by the cellular carrier to determine if the unit is ‘Home’ or in
‘Roam’.
Access Overload Class
This is the number that specifies the level of priority of the cellular call. There is no correlation between this
number and the level of cellular service unless there is a network emergency.
Group Identification Mark
This number is factory programmed and specifies how many bits of the System ID are compared when
processing signals. The Group Mark ID for LINKS1000 is set at 10. This number will make the LINKS1000
compatible with all North American networks.
Preferred System Mark
This number is determined by the Initial Paging Channel and refers to which system, A or B, is scanned for
first.
Roam/Roaming
Using cellular service outside of one ‘Home’ area. Usage charges are higher when Roaming.

INTRODUCING THE
The LINKS1000 Cellular Alarm Transmitter enhances the protection provided by a security system by
providing a reliable backup to the control panel’s normal telephone communications with the monitoring
station. The LINKS1000 works with the DSC Panels described in the Specifications below.
If the control panel is unable to complete an alarm transmission through the normal telephone line, due to any
line problems, the LINKS1000 will be activated and will transmit the alarm communication over the cellular
network. The LINKS1000 works automatically.
The LINKS1000 has been designed for simple and straightforward installation. Wiring connections are made
directly between the LINKS unit and the security control panel. The DSC panels require only minor changes
in their Programming Sections.
The LINKS1000 can only be used as the backup communication channel for fire alarm applications.
For commercial burglary applications, the attack resistant enclosure is required (Model CMC-1 P/N
31000052).

IMPORTANT NOTE
A security system cannot prevent emergencies. It is only intended to alert you and, if included, a monitoring
station, of an emergency situation. Security systems are generally very reliable but they may not work under
all conditions and they are not a substitute for prudent security practices or life and property insurance. Your
security system should be installed and serviced by qualified security professionals who should instruct
you on the level of protection that has been provided and on system operations.

HOW THE LINKS1000 WORKS
Cellular Communications
All cellular telephones, including the LINKS1000, must ‘register’ with the cellular network. ‘Registration’ is simply a
handshake, sending ESN and Telephone number, between the cellular switching station and the cellular telephone.
This is done upon power up of the LINKS1000 and randomly once a day. If the phone does not register the network
will not complete a call. Tower signal strength, also called RSSI (receive signal strength indication) is updated
approximately every 4-5 seconds. RSSI is indicated as a go/no go visible via the RSSI LEDs (L3, L4, L5, L6).
Sending an alarm
Before dialing the central station, all DSC alarm controls perform a telephone ‘line-test’. This is done via the
control unit using a series of off-hook and on-hook transitions to verify dial-tone. This takes 30 seconds.
The control panel ‘line-test’ feature will only determine a telephone line is inoperative when it is attempting to
send an alarm. With a LINKS1000 connected, the control panel will send the central station telephone number,
in a digital format, from the PGM output of the control panel to the PGMIn input of the LINKS1000. The
LINKS1000 then accesses the cellular telephone network and begins dialing. Once a suitable channel is
established the LINKS1000 switches an onboard relay and establishes a connection between the TIP and
RING terminals on the control panel and the T1 and R1 terminals on the LINKS1000.
With cellular communications now open to the central station receiver, the panel will detect ‘handshake’. The
alarm is sent. If the message is received, ‘kiss-off’ is sent, just as if it were communicating over a standard
telephone line. Once the panel has completed the transmission, the control panel ‘hangs up’. The LINKS1000
then detects the loss of current across T1 and R1 and sends the END key to the cellular network.
Telephone Line Monitor
The Telephone Line Monitor is a separate feature integral to DSC or Sur-gard control panels. The TLM looks
for a 30 second loss of telco line voltage. With a LINKS1000 connected and TLM signaling enabled, a service
outage would trigger the panel to begin dialing though the LINKS1000. Dialing will begin after the TLM timeout and ‘line-test’ are complete. This should take 1 minute.
Trouble supervision
By default the trouble supervision jumper J1 is OFF (removed) and there are three separate trouble outputs:
AC trouble (AC TBL), Battery trouble (BAT TBL) and System trouble (SYS TBL).”
The AC TBL terminal and Bat TBL terminals are each used to indicate their respective troubles. The LINKS1000
SYS TBL will activate for all other troubles. These outputs are connected from the LINKS1000 terminals to
separate zones on the control panel. The zone(s) connected to the BAT TBL and SYS TBL should be
programmed as LINKS Supervisory. The zone(s) connected to the AC TBL should be programmed as AC
Trouble. Under normal conditions, the TBL outputs of the LINKS1000 are “open”. When one or more of the
six monitored trouble conditions are present, and the corresponding time-out has expired, the respective
output will be pulled to ground. The connection from the LINKS1000 TBL output to the control panel zone,
forces the zone to ground. The panel now has a trouble it must send and the dialing sequence begins.
Typically, trouble signals are sent via the telco line. If the telephone line is not operational, the panel will send
the signal via the LINKS1000 and the cellular network.
This configuration is required on UL Listed systems.
Emergency Phone Number
This number is programmed into the LINKS1000 and will be dialed when the AUX IN terminal is shorted to ground.
To program the number, enter the emergency phone number into the LINKS1000, exactly as it would be dialed
on a cellular phone. To use this feature, place an ordinary handset in parallel with the panel on the LINKS1000
T-1, R-1 terminals and connect a normally open push-button across the AUX IN and Ground terminals.
NOTE: This input is a 24-hour, silent terminal and the Panic phone call will be connected through
the cellular network.
4
SETTING UP THE PROGRAMMER
Install 4 AA batteries in the LINKS1000 Programmer, being sure to note proper orientation. If the batteries are
installed incorrectly, the Programmer will not function.
NOTE: The software version for the programmer should be 1.40.

LINKS1000 PROGRAMMING GUIDE
Arranging for Cellular Service
In order for the LINKS1000 to communicate via the cellular telephone network, an account must be set up
with a cellular network operator. The ‘account’ is simply a matter of establishing the billing information for
the cellular service. In return, the cellular carrier will provide you with the cellular telephone number. Cellular
service may vary in price and coverage. Check with your cellular service provider for area coverage maps
and service charges.
Any cellular telephone service provider may be used as the LINKS1000 is compatible with all AMPS type
cellular telephone networks. There are a maximum of two separate network operators in a given market. They
are called non-wireline carriers (A-Side) and wireline carriers (B-Side). Choose the carrier and rate plan that
best fits the application.
DSC is not a cellular service provider, however the LINKS1000 is licensed to use the ‘HELPTEL’ cellular service
rate offered by LINDSAY Communications of Loeminster, Massachusetts. This coverage is virtually nation
wide, using exclusively A-side carriers, and offers service rates that are designed for cellular applications
requiring minimal air time. (In most applications the LINKS1000 is configured to activate only when the alarm
is set and the protected premises experiences an unanticipated loss of dial tone.) LINDSAY Communications
can be reached at 1-800-878-9898. For answers to any other questions concerning cellular activation call 1800-355-3630.
NOTE: When using LINDSAY Communication for cellular service, pay close attention to the PREAMBLE
Section when programming the control panel.
Using the LINKS1000 Programmer
The LINKS1000 Programmer is used to enter the required cellular network parameters into the LINKS1000.
If the parameters are not entered correctly, the LINKS1000 will not operate.
AC power must be applied to the LINKS1000 in order to program any data.
Connect the modular connector of the Programmer to the modular jack on the LINKS1000. Press any key to
activate the Programmer. The LCD screen will light up.
NOTE: If the screen does not light up, check to see if 4 AA batteries were correctly installed in the back
of the Programmer.
The LINKS1000 Programmer is menu driven (see Table 1 for a list of menu messages):
• use ‘up’ and ‘down’ arrows to scroll through the various menu fields
✱ ] key to select it
• when the desired field is displayed, use the [✱
• or use the numbers shown in parentheses to go directly to the desired menu or item
• use the [#] key to enter data and exit the section.
Before a cellular service provider will give the Cellular Phone parameters, you must first give the LINKS1000
Electronic Serial Number (ESN). The ESN is found on the LINKS itself (in hexadecimal), or can be read via the
Programmer (in hexadecimal).
If the ESN was not found on the LINKS1000, scroll to the “Read LINKS” menu. Select the ESN and the LCD
will display the ESN in hexadecimal form.
Record the ESN here:

INSTALLATION
Mounting the Cabinet
It is important to mount the LINKS1000 as close to the DSC alarm control panel as possible. 3 feet is
the recommended maximum distance between the two devices. If the devices are mounted in an under-over
arrangement, always mount the LINKS1000 on top. It is recommended that all wiring between the control panel
and the LINKS1000 be in a tamper and attack-resistant conduit.
Keep in mind the LINKS1000 antenna must be mounted above ground level. If necessary, Antenna
Extension Kits are available from your distributor. Remember cellular likes height. The antenna should be
installed in a physically secured location to avoid tampering.
As much as reasonably possible the LINKS1000 should not be located near sources of interference. These sources
include EMI generated by televisions or heavy electric motors such as those found in heating or air conditioning units.
Remove printed circuit board and wall mounting hardware from cardboard retainer inside cabinet. Before attaching
the cabinet to the wall, press the white nylon mounting studs through the holes in the back of the cabinet.
Mounting the Antenna
NOTE: An antenna should always be connected to the LINKS1000 whenever it is operated. The unit will
not function properly if an antenna is not installed.
Before attaching the antenna, first secure the TNC connector and cable attached to the LINKS unit in the hole
in the top of the cabinet using the hardware provided. Ensure the star washers make solid electrical contact
with the metal cabinet; refer to the illustrations below.
The antenna should be mounted as high above ground level as possible while at the same time taking care not
to place the antenna under a Radio Frequency shield of any kind. I.E. do not mount the antenna directly beneath
a metal roofing over hang. Cellular works best when in an unobstructed “line of sight” to the cellular antenna site.
Wiring Connections
Do not connect the transformer or battery until all other wiring,
including the antenna connection, has been completed and
checked. Incorrect wiring connections may cause the LINKS1000
unit to operate improperly.
“AC” Power Terminals
For proper operation, the LINKS1000 requires its own transformer. Do not use the control panel transformer to
power the LINKS1000. Do not connect the transformer or battery until all other wiring is complete. Use a 16.5 VAC
transformer with a minimum 40 VA rating to supply AC power to the LINKS1000. Do not connect the transformer
to an outlet that is controlled by a switch. UL Listed systems should employ the ATC-Frost PIN FTC3716 transformer.
NOTE: All terminals are power limited except for the battery leads. All power limited wiring shall be
installed using FPL, FPLR, FPLP or permitted substitute cable.”
9
Ground Connection
Connect the LINKS “AUX-GND” terminal to the control panel “GND” terminal. AUX- or KEYPAD BLACK and ZONE
COMMON are also good ground connections. A good ground connection is essential for proper operation.
Connect a ground cable from the Cabinet Ground connection to an earth ground, such as a copper cold water
pipe, by the shortest and most direct route. Ensure that the cold water pipe connection provides path to ground.
Do not make the ground connection to a plastic cold water pipe!
Tamper Terminal
The “TMP” terminal on the LINKS1000 is provided for a cabinet tamper switch. If a tamper switch is not used,
then a wire jumper must be connected between the “TMP” and “GND” terminals.
Supervision of LINKS-to-Panel Connection
To make use of the cable tamper alarm simply connect an end-of-line resistor, of the value indicated on the
hookup diagram, across the GND terminal and the LINKS SYS TBL terminal. If the cable between the LINKS
and the control panel is cut, a fault will be presented to the LINKS1000 supervisory zone.
NOTE: Resistor must be installed in LINKS cabinet.
LINKS SYS TBL Terminal
When jumper J1 is shorted, this terminal is used to report all troubles to the attached control panel, including
the AC and Battery troubles. The AC TBL and BAT TBL terminals will be disabled when J1 is shorted.
When jumper J1 is open, the AC TBL and BAT TBL will be reported at their respective terminals. All other
troubles will be reported through the LINKS SYS TBL terminal.
The LINKS SYS TBL terminal will switch to ground whenever a trouble condition is present on the LINKS unit. The
terminal will remain switched to ground for as long as a trouble condition exists. This feature is used to report LINKS
trouble conditions through the control panel via a zone programmed for LINKS Supervision (see programming
guide for instructions). Also, when a resistor is connected across GND of the LINKS and the SYS TBL of the LINKS,
then connected to the designated LINKS supervision zone, the control panel will report an open in the connection
between the LINKS and the control panel (see instructions for correct resistor value).
When using Normally Closed Loops, connect a DSC Model RM-1 Relay to the control panel and the LINKS as
described below. The Alarm and Reporting Codes programmed for the zone connected to the yellow lead of the
RM-1 will be used to report a general trouble and restore on the LINKS. Note that the PC5010, PC4010, PC4020,
PC4010CF and PC4020CF always use an end-of-line resistor regardless of how zone supervision is programmed.

AUX IN Terminal
When this terminal is temporarily shorted to ground, the LINKS1000 will dial the phone number that is
programmed in the emergency phone number position. This phone number has to be a direct access line, it
can not be dialed to a PBX and then into an extension.
NOTE: This input is a 24-hour, silent terminal and the Panic phone call will be connected through the cellular network.
If this input is triggered, the panel will be disconnected from the cellular network. Please use this input carefully.
LINKS PGMIn Terminal - Serial Input for Central Station Telephone Number
The connection between the control panel PGM and the LINKS1000 PGMIn is very important. It carries the
telephone number of the central station to LINKS, the LINKS then dials that number through the cellular network.
The PC4010, PC4020, PC4010CF and PC4020CF require a 1K ohm resistor connected between the terminals
on the control panel, PGM and AUX+ or PGM and AUX- terminals for v3.0 and up. The PC5010 require a 5.6K
ohm resistor. Refer to hook up diagram in this manual.
The maximum distance (wire length) the LINKS should be mounted from the control panel is 3 feet.

Whenever the LINKS phone number is called, the RING terminal will activate. This feature may be used to make
the control panel answer an incoming call via the cellular telephone network.
PC5010, PC4010, PC4020, PC4010CF, PC4020CF
Connect the LINKS RING terminal to an available zone terminal on the control panel. Refer to the “Programming”
section of this manual for information on programming the zone for the “LINKS Answer” option.
Bat TBL Terminal
When jumper J1 is shorted, this terminal will be disabled, and the battery trouble will be reported to the control
panel through the LINKS SYS TBL terminal.
When jumper J1 is removed, this terminal will provide the output for the LINKS1000 battery trouble indication
to the control panel. The terminal will switch to ground after the time-out delay for the battery trouble has
expired, and remain at ground until the battery is restored. A missing battery will also cause the same
conditions. Connect to a separate control panel zone that is programmed as LINKS Supervisory. A single endof-line resistor MUST be used on this zone. (See hookup diagram for correct resistor value.)
AC TBL Terminal
When jumper J1 is shorted, this terminal will be disabled, and the AC trouble will be reported to the control
panel through the LINKS SYS TBL terminal.
When jumper J1 is removed, this terminal will provide the output for the LINKS1000 AC trouble indication to the control
panel. The terminal will switch to ground after the time-out delay for the AC trouble has expired, and remain at ground
until the AC is restored. Connect to a separate control panel zone that is programmed as LINKS Supervisory. A single
end-of-line resistor MUST be used on this zone. (See hookup diagram for correct resistor value.)
Battery Connections
Do not connect the battery or the transformer until all other wiring is complete. Connect the RED battery lead to the
positive battery terminal and the BLACK lead to the negative battery terminal. If the battery connection is made in
reverse, the solid state battery fuse will open. If the fuse opens, disconnect the battery and wait for approximately
40 seconds for the fuse to reset. Note that the unit will not power up on battery power only; AC power must first be
present (with J2 open). When J2 is shorted, only the DC source connected to the battery leads should be present.
Jumper J1
Jumper J1 is used for the LINKS1000 trouble outputs. When J1 is shorted, all of the LINKS1000 troubles will
activate the SYS Tbl output after their respective delays have expired. When J1 is open, the LINKS1000 AC
Tbl and Bat Tbl terminals are used to indicate their respective troubles instead of the SYS Tbl terminal. All other
LINKS1000 troubles will activate the LINKS SYS Tbl terminal.
For UL Listed Systems the jumper J1 is defaulted to the OFF position.
Jumper J2
Jumper J2 is used to allow the LINKS1000 to be powered only by a DC source. Jumper J2 must remain shorted
for the entire time the LINKS1000 is powered by the DC source. When all wiring is complete, place the jumper
on J2 and then connect the DC source (observing correct polarity) to the battery leads of the LINKS1000.
11
RELOCATING THE ANTENNA
Before permanently mounting the LINKS1000 in it’s final location, verify that it is working as it should by
following these steps:
Step 1: Make all connections between the LINKS and the control panel.
Step 2: Power up the control panel and the LINKS1000.
Step 3: Using the four LED’s on the upper left-hand side of the LINKS1000, find the position that gives the
LINKS the best signal strength:
L3 (top, green LED) lit: indicates best received signal strength. Mount the LINKS here.
L4 (second green LED) lit: indicates acceptable signal strength. The LINKS may be mounted here.
L5 (yellow LED) lit: indicates poor signal strength. DO NOT mount the LINKS here as it will probably not
be able to communicate properly.
L6 (red LED) lit: indicates very bad or no received signal strength. DO NOT mount LINKS here, as it will
not be able to communicate.
If a suitable location is not available within the maximum 3 ft. wire length from the control panel, obtain an Antenna
Extension Bracket kit from your DSC / Sur-Gard supplier. Each kit contains an extension cable, a mounting
bracket, instructions, and all required mounting hardware. Three lengths of extension cable are available:
Extension Kit
Length of Cable
LAE-3
LAE-15
LAE-25
3 feet (0.91 m)
15 feet (4.57 m)
25 feet (7.62 m)
Use only the Extension Kits to extend the mounting range of the antenna. Do not cut or splice the
extension cable. The maximum distance between the LINKS and the antenna is 25 feet (7.62 m) as obtained
by using the LAE-25 Extension Kit. Make sure the antenna is in a physically secured location to avoid tampering.
Secure the TNC connector from the Extension Kit to the mounting bracket, ensuring that the star washers make
solid electrical contact with the mounting bracket.
Remove the antenna from the LINKS cabinet and connect the extension cable to the TNC connector on the
cabinet. Secure the antenna to the TNC connector mounted on the Extension Kit Mounting Bracket.
Locate the mounting bracket and antenna away from possible sources of electrical interference. Moving the
antenna just a short distance will likely be adequate. Temporarily secure the mounting bracket in the new
location and repeat steps 1 - 3 above. If the test gives a good result, perform a test transmission as described
in the “Operations” section of this manual.
If the test is successful and the cellular transmission is completed without a Loss of Cellular Communication
trouble, permanently secure the mounting bracket and antenna at the new location.
If the cellular transmission is not completed successfully or there is a trouble indication, relocate the mounting
bracket and test the LINKS again.
NOTE: Do not secure the mounting bracket in a way that would stretch or strain the extension cable.
Rather than try to strain the cable to reach a desired location, use a longer cable. When installation is
complete, secure the extension cable so that it does not dangle or hang loose from the cabinet or
mounting bracket.

PROGRAMMING CONTROL PANELS FOR LINKS1000
IMPORTANT NOTE
When a control panel is programmed for LINKS1000, the PGM output is dedicated to LINKS communicator
and cannot be used for other functions.
Preamble Section of Control Panel Programming
The LINKS1000 receives the telephone number to be dialed from the alarm control panel telephone number
memory location. The ‘data’ is sent via the PGM/PGMIn connection. The ‘Preamble’ programming section of the
alarm control allows for flexible dialing strings. This helps the installer use the most effective cellular plan available.
The ‘Preamble’ allows the installer to add a prefix or an area code to the telephone number should the cellular network
need additional dialing digits. In some areas, dialing the central monitoring station may only require seven digits when
using land line, while cellular requires an area code plus seven digits when accessing the network. Still other areas
may require what is known as ‘1plus’ dialing. That is, the cellular network requires a ‘1’ be added to the local telephone
number. And of course, if the cellular telephone is setup in ‘Roam’ mode a Preamble may be required. ‘Roam’ is a
when a cellular phone is being used outside of the area where the telephone number originated.
If there is a question as to whether a ‘Preamble’ is needed, simply dial the central station from the premises
land line, then, dial the number using the installed LINKS1000. If both calls connect, do not add a ‘Preamble’.
To add a ‘Preamble’ simply enter the additional digits required in the location provided (see Control Panel
Programming section). The ‘Preamble supports up to 4 digits and they will always be dialed in front of the telephone
number in the control panel memory. Factory default of ‘Preamble’ location is FFFF. Program all unused digits as “F”.
If Lindsay Communications is used for cellular service, a ‘Preamble’ may be required (see Helpful Hints). This
is because Lindsay’s cellular telephone numbers originate in Boston, Massachusetts. And, unless the
LINKS1000 is being connected in Boston, Mass., the device will be in ‘Roam”.
Some Helpful Hints:
Never enter a Preamble if the central station telephone number is a 1-800 number. This would result in the
control panel sending 1-800-1-800-xxx-xxxx when utilizing the LINKS1000.
Never enter a ‘Preamble’ if the telephone number of the land line telephone number to the central station is
a long distance number. Again, this would result in 1-508,1-508-xxx-xxxx being sent to the LINKS1000.
Communication Formats
Due to limitation of the cellular telephone network, only certain communication formats are recommended
when the LINKS1000 is utilized:
• Any format communicating at 10 bps or 20 bps
• SIA format
• Sur-Gard 4/3
Not Recommended: • Any format communicating at 40 bps
• Contact ID
UL has verified compatibility with the Sur-Gard SG-MLR2-DG receiver.

Power-up Procedure
Apply power to the transformer and wait approximately 10 seconds. If LED1 begins to flicker once every 4 to
5 seconds, check the following:
• Ensure that the PGMIn and GND terminals are properly wired
• Ensure that the Control Panel is programmed for LINKS operation
NOTE : The LINKS1000 will not operate if the AC is off and the battery is low. The LINKS1000 should not
be powered up without the antenna attached to the unit.
16
TESTING THE SYSTEM
Before testing the LINKS1000 unit, ensure that the control panel is correctly programmed and operating
properly by performing a test transmission to the monitoring station over the normal telephone line. If problems
are encountered in communicating over the normal telephone line, ensure that the communication options,
telephone numbers and account numbers are programmed properly in the control panel. The control panel
must be programmed properly in order for the LINKS1000 to operate.
To test the LINKS unit, apply power to the unit after all wiring connections have been made. Ten seconds after
power is applied to the LINKS unit, LED1 on the unit will begin to flash. Observe LED1 for at least 40 seconds;
if LED1 flashes once every ten seconds, then the LINKS unit is operating properly. If there is a trouble condition,
LED1 will flash several times every ten seconds. Refer to the “Trouble Supervision” section of this manual.
Performing a LINKS Test Transmission
Contact the monitoring station to request a transmission test. Remove the telephone cord from the RJ31-X jack.
Perform a Bell Test as described in the control panel’s Installation Manual. When the test is complete, contact
the monitoring station to confirm the transmission. Perform additional test transmissions as required by the
monitoring station.
NOTE: Whenever a cellular telephone call is answered by a receiver or another phone, cellular charges will
be applied to the cellular telephone account that placed the call. Therefore keep in mind that test signals
will increment the cellular bill. If for some reason the call is established; however, the alarm signal is not
received, the cellular account will still be billed. Please double check the installation before you test.
“On Air” Indication
Whenever the LINKS unit is communicating over the cellular network, the red LED (L1) on the unit’s circuit
board will be illuminated. When communications are successfully completed and there are no troubles to
report, the LED will return to its standby indication of one flash every 10 seconds. If trouble conditions exist,
the LED will flash 2 or more times every 10 seconds.
20-minute Transmission Cutoff
The LINKS1000 will automatically “hang up” after 20 minutes of continuous communication. This feature is
designed to prevent a cellular call from lasting indefinitely. NOTE: The 20-minute cutoff time may affect
downloading performed through the LINKS1000. While performing downloading functions, the LINKS1000
will automatically hang up the call after 20 minutes.
17
LINKS1000 TROUBLE SHOOTING
If LINKS1000 will not communicate to the central monitoring station receiver, check the following before calling
Sur-Gard technical support:
1. Check all wiring
A. Make sure T1 & R1 of the LINKS are connected to Tip & Ring of the control panel.
B. Make sure the GND of the LINKS is connected to a zone common or Aux- of the control panel.
C. Make sure the proper resistor is in place on control panel PGM (see installation instructions).
D. Make sure the programmer is not plugged into the LINKS1000.
2. Check the trouble LED (L1)
A. Check number of flashes on trouble LED. If the LED flashes more than once every ten seconds, refer
to Table 2. Repair the indicated problem.
B. Four flashes means bad communications with the cellular network. Add an extension antenna.
C. Eight flashes means bad PGMIn connection. This means the GND for the LINKS is not connected to a
panel ground or the control panel is not programmed correctly.
Be sure the control panel is properly programmed for LINKS operation. PGM outputs on DSC equipment
will be set to logic low when the panel is programmed correctly. Check the installation instructions in
the LINKS1000 manual for the particular panel being connected.
3. If red LED flashes once every ten seconds, yet LINKS still cannot reach central station:
A. Connect a telephone handset to TIP & RING of the control panel. Send a signal through the LINKS. Listen
to the handset. If a ‘network’ message is heard, make note of it and follow the instructions. For instance;
the network message says “you must first dial a 1 or zero before placing this call”. The telephone number
in the control panel probably requires a ‘Preamble’. Be sure the central station telephone number
is not programmed as the LINKS1000 cellular telephone number.
B. Check cellular activation. Call the cellular number of the LINKS1000. If the LINKS is properly activated
yet turned off, the network message should say “the cellular customer you have called is unavailable
or has traveled outside of the coverage area”. If the LINKS cellular number is called and the LINKS is
turned on (and downloading is not enabled and connected), the message should say “the customer
you have called has left the vehicle”, or it will simply hang up (this would occur after many rings). If the
cellular number is not activated the message will say “the number you have called is not in service”.
Call the cellular service provider and check the activation. Be prepared with the LINKS ESN and the
telephone number.
C. Still can’t communicate...send a signal through the LINKS and listen for the black relay on the
LINKS1000 board to ‘click’. That is the sound that occurs when LINKS is receiving the central station
telephone number via the control panel PGM output. If after that the red trouble LED stays on steady,
the LINKS is transmitting. If it doesn’t, the LINKS can’t find a voice channel. The panel will time-out and
attempt the call again. Try using an antenna extension kit to relocate the antenna.
D. Do not disconnect the telephone line between the LINKS and control panel when testing. Only
disconnect the telephone line at the RJ31X jack when testing the LINKS1000.
18
LINKS TROUBLE SUPERVISION
The LINKS1000 automatically monitors its operation and indicates trouble conditions by flashing LED1 on the
circuit board. LED1 normally flashes once every 10 seconds when the LINKS is in standby (ready to transmit)
mode. Troubles are indicated when LED1 flashes more than once at each 10 second interval. Shown below
are the number of flashes used to indicate each trouble condition. If more than one trouble is present, only the
first trouble is indicated. When that trouble is cleared, the next will be indicated.

is a problem with the battery connection.
Loss of Cellular Communication: Indicates that the LINKS1000 is not able to communicate with the cellular
network. Ensure the antenna connections and cabling are secure and undamaged, and that the antenna has
not been obstructed by metal objects. Check the signal strength LED’s as described in the “Relocating the
Antenna” section of this manual.
Tamper Fault: Indicates that the tamper contact is open. If a tamper switch is not installed, ensure that a jumper
is securely connected between the “TMP” and “GND” terminals.
Internal Fault: Indicates that an internal fault has occurred. Return the unit to your distributor for repairs.
PGMIn Fault: Indicates that there is a problem with the connection between the LINKS PGMIn terminal and the
security system’s PGM terminal. Check the following:
• Ensure that the PGMIn terminal is connected to the security system’s PGM terminal
• Ensure that the security system’s PGM Output has been programmed for LINKS operation
• Ensure that no other connections have been made to the security system’s PGM terminal
• Ensure that the LINKS GND terminal is connected to the security system’s ground terminal
• Ensure that a resistor has been added (for the PC4010, PC4020, PC4010CF, PC4020CF, PC5010). Refer to
the hookup diagram for information on the resistor required.
When using End-of-Line Resistor Loops, connect the LINKS Trouble terminal(s) to unused zone(s) on the
control panel, and program the zone as a 24-hour Silent Zone (when using the PC4010, PC4020, PC4010CF,
PC4020CF or PC5010, program the zone as “LINKS Supervisory”). The Alarm and Restoral Reporting Codes
for that zone will be used to report a general trouble (which could be any of the trouble conditions described
above) on the LINKS1000.
Note that the PC4010, PC4020 and PC4020CF use the Zone Trouble and Zone Trouble Restoral
Reporting Codes to report a general LINKS trouble condition.
19
Reading trouble conditions on the LINKS1000 via the LINKS1000 Programmer
NOTE: Any LINKS1000 software v2.x (starting at v2.1) will support a single event trouble buffer. LINKS1000
software v3.0 and higher has a trouble buffer that will show the last four troubles that the LINKS1000 registered.
The LINKS1000 Programmer v1.4 and later can be used to read the trouble, whether it is existing or cleared,
provided the trouble was present long enough to set the supervisory trouble terminal(s) (SYS TBL, AC TBL and
Bat TBL).
Step 1.
With AC power applied to the LINKS1000, connect the modular cord on the LINKS1000
Programmer to the modular jack on the LINKS1000.
