1 Installation
1.1
System Design
Before commencing installation it is important to
familiarise yourself with these instructions.
Care should be taken when planning the system that the
control panel is sited close to a convenient mains supply
and is not visible from the outside of the property.
If you are using the Avanti ES then the end station may
be located in a cupboard in the hall or under the stairs.
The remote keypads should be located so that the user
can access them easily during entry and exit.
1.2
Fixing
First disconnect the AC and internal speaker wiring,
releasing the PCB from the case.
Offer the case to the wall, mark, drill and plug for three
hole fixing using a suitable bit.
Where required remove trunking cut outs and drill wall for
cable entry.
Screw in top fixing (No8 x 212”screw) and leave protruding
1
2”, mount the box utilising the keyhole, align and secure
using 2 off No8 x 212” screws.
Refit the PCB and reconnect the speaker and AC wires.
1.3
Pre-installation test
Observing the correct polarity, Connect the battery to the
terminals marked Batt + The panel will now go into alarm condition. Entering the
user code (0123) will silence the system. The Tamper
and Power LED’s will be lit with Day & Zone flashing.
To reset the panel re-enter the user code and the Day &
Power LED’s will become steady (DAY mode).
Upon completion of initial test, disconnect the battery.
1.4
Wiring
Wire each of the zones in turn making sure to connect
tampers in series then continue to wire PA, internal and
external sounder and strobe and any additional remote
keypads. Finally on RS models connect any
communicating devices.
1.5
RKPs
Up to 4 RKP’s may be wired in parallel with the tamper
being wired in series using a single 6-core cable to a
maximum of 100 metres.
1.6
Utility Outputs
A unique feature of the Avanti is the ability to operate
security lighting. To utilise this value-added feature a
Lighting Drive Module (LDM) is required (available
separately).
To install floodlights the LDM is wired into the RKP
terminals and lighting is operated through Channels A &
B. Depressing the A or B keys on the control panel will
switch up to 1000 watts per channel (total available 2000
watts).
If you choose to install a PIR then this can be wired into
any unused zone which when activated will switch the
lighting on for a period of 15 seconds.
1.7
Mains Connection
This equipment should be installed by a suitably
qualified electrician and must be wired with cable
rated at least 1 Amp, 230 volts AC. Ensure that a
suitable disconnect device such as a fused spur or
removable fuse is fitted to the mains supply.
After the wiring has been completed re-connect the
battery to the terminals marked Batt + The panel will now go into alarm condition, enter user
code (0123) to silence, the Tamper and Power will be lit
and Day & Zone LED’s flashing.
To reset the panel re-enter the user code and the Day &
Power LED’s will be steady (DAY mode).
Re-fit the lower cover and the system should now be
tested to ensure correct operation.
2 Descriptions
2.1
Zones
Avanti panels come supplied with service links fitted to
the zone terminals to simulate a closed circuit. As each
zone is connected these links should be removed. All
zones are fully programmable.
Zone Functions per Program:
Immediate – This function would be used when the
zone is not part of an entry/exit route. When the system
is SET activation of an immediate zone will cause a full
alarm condition.
Timed – A timed zone would be used to protect an
entry/exit route. Opening the door or triggering the
sensor in this type of zone when the system is SET will
start the entry timer.
Time Inhibited – A time inhibited zone operates as an
immediate zone unless a timed zone has been operated
and a timer started. Such a zone would be utilised to
allow passage between the entry/exit door and the control
panel when there are detectors present.
Fire – If you choose to utilise a zone as a fire zone then
no other devices may be wired into this zone. Therefore a
zone cannot be both fire and intruder.
Doorbell –this feature can be programmed into any
zone. A doorbell will not operate whilst the entry/exit
timers have started, when the system is in full alarm
condition or whilst in programming mode.
Exit Modes per Program:
Timed Exit – a timed program will SET once the exit
timer has expired.
Final Door Set – a final door program will SET 5
seconds after the final door has been opened and closed.
Immediate/Silent Set – an immediate program will
SET the system immediately and silently.
2.2
Tamper
Avanti panels come supplied with a service link fitted to
the Tamper terminals; this should be removed as the
tamper circuit is wired.
Tamper circuits must be wired in series.
If a Tamper occurs whilst the system is in DAY mode
then only the internal sounders will be activated.
If a Tamper occurs whilst the system is SET then both the
internal and external sounders will be activated. (If you
are using an RS Panel fitted with a communicator then a
signal will also be sent to an Alarm Receiving Centre
(ARC).
2.3
PA
Remove the service link and wire in series any number of
PA buttons to the PA terminals. Activation of the PA will
cause the system to go into a full alarm condition whether
in DAY mode or SET. (If you are using an RS Panel
fitted with a communicator then a signal will also be sent)
2.4
Internal sounder
A maximum of two 16 ohm extension speakers may be
wired in parallel to the terminals marked
The
volume of both the internal sounder and entry/exit timers
can be adjusted by a pre-set located on the PCB.
2.6
Set +
This output becomes 12V positive on SET and is removed
on commencement of the entry timer.
13V Supply
This terminal provides a 13.8V output to power detectors
and shock sensors etc. Total current available is 350 mA.
2.8
PTS
The PTS terminals can be programmed to be either
PUSH TO SET (PTS) or KEYSWITCH operation.
PTS – operation of an exit terminate button when exiting
the property will cause the timer to expire immediately
and the system will become SET.
Keyswitch – this enables the system to be SET and
UNSET with the use of a keyswitch. If the panel needs to
be reset then a user code must be entered.
2.9
Battery
To ensure continuing protection in the event of mains
power failure a suitable rechargeable battery with a
capacity to support the system for a period of 12 hours
must be fitted.
Battery Backup Time Vs. Number of Passives (Passive
Current=10ma)
Bell output & Strobe
Connect the wires from the bell to the terminals D (bell
positive) and B (bell negative).
The bell tamper should be wired to the T A terminals and
the service link removed.
Wire the strobe to the terminals marked strobe observing
the correct polarity.

3 Operation
3.1
Programs
The Avanti provides the facility for up to 3 programs that
can be selected by entering the A, B or * keys after
entering the user code when setting the system. The *
program is used for Full Set. If no program is selected
when setting the system the Avanti will default to
Program *.
When setting up the programs the function of each zone
can be changed i.e.: - Immediate, Timed, Time Inhibited
or Exit mode.
3.2
Operating
Setting the System
To set the system a user code (4 digits) must be entered
and a program selected (A,B or * [Full Set]). If no
program is selected within 5 seconds then the Avanti will
default to Program * (Full Set).
The exit timer will begin and a series of bleeps will sound.
Unsetting the System
To UNSET the system a user code must be entered, this
will return the panel to DAY mode. If the external siren is
sounding then entering the user code will silence the
sounder. All that is required to reset the system is to
enter a user code.
Fault during setting
If the system is unable to SET then the internal sounders
will make a different bleeping sound. The fault on the
system will be indicated by the relevant zone/PA/tamper
LED being lit.
Omitting Zones
To omit a zone a user code must be entered followed by
Z and then the zone number(s) to be omitted. The
zone(s) chosen to be omitted will be indicated by the
relevant zone LED being toggled off. A program should
then be selected. If a program is not selected then the
panel will default to Program *.
Quick Set
This feature allows the panel to be SET so that it
overrides the programmed exit time. Entering a User
code, selecting Program A/B or * and then pressing
‘will cause the panel to SET within 2 seconds.
3.3
Access Codes
Avanti has the following access codes:
1x Engineer Access code.
1x Holiday Access code.
1x Manager Access code
4x User Access codes.
Engineer Access Code – cannot be used to SET or
UNSET the panel, it can only be used to configure the
system and view the Event Log. Therefore it can only be
used from within DAY mode.
Manager Access Code – is used to SET and UNSET the
system. It also has the ability to change all other access
codes except for the engineers. The Manager is also able
to view the Event Log, test the system and programme
Chime for any zone.
Holiday Access Code – the purpose of this code is to
allow access to the property whilst the manager is absent.
The Holiday Access Code is programmed by the Manager
and is only valid until the Manager UNSETS the system.
At this point the Holiday Access Code becomes invalid and
is no longer accepted by the control panel.
User Access Code – allows the User to SET and UNSET
the system. Any User can also program Chime.
Additionally RS Panels have individual duress codes for
the Users, Holiday and Manager.
Duress is only accessible in SET. Entering a user code
followed by the first digit within 1 to 1.5 seconds will
activate a silent PA. i.e.: - 0 1 2 3 0
3.4
Keypad tamper
When the control panel is in SET, the Keypad tamper will
be activated after 20 invalid key presses. A full alarm
condition will then be created. (If you are using an RS
Panel fitted with a communicator then a signal will also
be sent.)
3.5
Entry Exit timers
The entry and exit timers have been factory set for 30
seconds. If you require more or less time then these
timers can be programmed independently via the keypad
in increments of 1 second from immediate to 99 seconds.
3.6
On Board PA
Simultaneously depressing key’s 4 and 8 will activate a
PA thus creating a full alarm condition. This feature can
be used when the system is in DAY mode or SET. (If you
are using an RS Panel fitted with a communicator then a
signal will also be sent.)
3.7
Service timer
The Avanti has provision for a service timer, which once
selected is fixed at 900 closings. When expired the
tamper LED will flash intermittently. The expiration of the
service timer will not disable the control panel.
3.8
Non Volatile Memory (NVM)
The NVM circuit stores and protects the access codes and
system configuration information. To clear there are two
methods. i.e.: Method 1 From engineering mode pressing * twice
within 2 seconds will cause the panel to revert to factory
defaults whilst retaining the engineers access code.
Method 2 Remove power and remove link/wires
between T and A. Link Set+ to T with lid tamper closed
and power up the panel. The Avanti will retain all
information but will clear the engineer and manager
access codes.
3.9
Confirmed alarms (RS models only)
To reduce the level of false alarms the Avanti will only
send a confirmed signal to an Alarm Receiving Centre
(ARC) when 2 or more zones have been activated
sequentially.
3.10
Double knock
The Avanti range of panels can be programmed for
double knock. When a zone is activated a 10 minute timer
will begin, if during this time the same or another zone is
activated a full alarm condition will be caused. A zone
active for 10 seconds will also cause an alarm condition.
3.11
Bell follow
Bell Follow Off – If the system is activated then once
the bell has expired the strobe will continue to flash until
the system is reset.
Bell Follow On – If an alarm condition is caused then
the strobe will cease to flash at the same time as the bell
stops sounding.

5 Remote signalling
Communicator Terminals
The RS variant of the control panel is fitted with
communicator outputs on the top left side of the PCB.
13V output
This output, along with the 0V output provides power for
a wire on communicator, which is fused at 0.5A.
Note: Care should be taken to ensure that the maximum
load on the power supply is less than 350ma for auxiliary
devices such as communicators, passives but excludes the
Bell/Strobe outputs.
Line Fail
This input allows the communicator to inform the panel
that there is a line fault.
When the panel is in DAY mode a line fail will cause the
Tamper LED to flash but will not cause an alarm.
A line fault when the panel is SET will not cause an alarm,
but will cancel any bell delay programmed into the panel.
Outputs
There are 6 outputs labelled FIRE, PA, INT, SET,
ABORT, and CONF. Each output sits at 12V when not
active and is pulled to approximately 0.8V when active.
Each output can sink 50ma, giving enough energy to drive
a relay if required. These outputs would normally be
connected to a STU or communicator.
FIRE – This output becomes active (0V) when the panel
is activated by a fire input.
PA – This output becomes active (0V) when the panel is
triggered by:
1) PA input becoming active
2) Duress code being entered
INT – This intruder output becomes active (0V) when the
panel is triggered whilst the panel is SET.
Once the changes have been made then:
SET – This output becomes active (0V) when the panel is
SET.
Press A To Accept / Press B To Abort the changes.
ABORT – This output becomes active (0V) when an alarm
condition is reset.
CONF – This confirmed output becomes active (0V) when
2 or more zones are triggered when the panel is SET.
Note: If the communicator or STU is being powered by a
separate power supply, the 0V of the external power
supply must be connected to the 0V of the alarm panel.
