SAFECOM Telemetry Communications System
SAFECOM is a long range telemetry communications system for monitoring life safety security alarm panels
which are remotely located at a customer site. The SAFECOM system utilizes specially designed telemetry
transmitters and receivers to provide a secure and reliable radio communications link between remote alarm
panels and a Central Monitoring Station. The information provided to the Central Monitoring Station allows
security personnel or local authorities to respond immediately and appropriately to all alarm events detected at
the customer site (see the following figure).

SAFECOM Communications Paths
The SC9000 Receiver acts as the nerve center of the SAFECOM Base Station. The SC9000 Receiver uses a
personal computer to operate the ST1000 Receiver Software and provide radio communications with remote
Radio Communicators via the RF2000 Radio Modem.
A Radio Communicator is a SAFECOM Communications Panel which is located at a customer site; commercial
or residential. The SC9000 SAFECOM computer can supervise, monitor, and control up to 2,500 Radio
Communicators through two-way telemetry radio communications.
The receipt of each message or poll that is transmitted is validated by the receiving site; SC9000 computer or
Radio Communicator. The receiving site will then transmit an acknowledge message in response.
Supervisory polling is performed by the SC9000 computer for each Radio Communicator to verify two-way
telemetry radio communications and the operational condition of the Radio Communicator. The supervisory
polling interval is individually programmable for each Radio Communicator in the SC9000 computer account
base.
The SAFECOM radios can be configured to transmit (TX) and receive (RX) on a single frequency pair directly to
the Central Station. When the SAFECOM system is set up for Direct Mode, the SC9000 computer communicates
directly with the Radio Communicators in the field. No repeater is used for this type of SAFECOM system
(usually found in smaller proprietary systems like those found on a military base, university, or
factory/commercial plant).
The SAFECOM radios can also be configured to transmit and receive on a frequency pair to a repeater located
on a mountain, tower, or high building in the desired coverage area. When the SAFECOM system is set up for
repeater mode, the SC9000 computer communicates with the Radio Communicators through a, UL Listed,
SAFECOM SC801 or SC802 Data Repeater, or a commercial grade voice repeater that has been configured
with a SAFECOM DP1000PWA Controller Board. The SC801/SC802 or equivalent repeater is normally installed
at a Commercial Repeater Site.

Introduction
The use of a SAFECOM type or equivalent repeater significantly increases the coverage area (range). Radio
area coverage and reception ranges are also dependent on the extent of a number of environmental effects, e.g.,
propagation losses due to atmospheric conditions, and the proximity of the radio transmission and reception
paths to dense foliage and metal structures.
The majority of SAFECOM Radio Communicators are ordered to TX and RX in the 450-470 MHz UHF frequency
range. Other frequency bands currently supported by Bosch Security Systems include the 403-430 MHz, 470512 MHz, 136-174 MHz VHF range and the 900 MHz band. Additional frequency ranges are available upon
request. The SC9000 computer can communicate with all Radio Communicators assigned to that specific
SAFECOM network on a single RF “channel” through one SAFECOM RF2000 Radio Modem. A single RF
channel is one radio frequency pair for either direct OR repeater communications.
With the installation of a SAFECOM 4 or 8 port Expander Board, the SC9000 computer can communicate on 1 to
8 independent and addressable RF channels. Each RF channel communicates through a separate RF2000
Radio Modem. The addition of RF channels can be used to achieve backup redundancy in an area, or greater
RF coverage range.
The SAFECOM IT1500 Installation Tester allows the installer to test for a standardized signal level from the
remote radio site to the SC9000 computer and back, full two-way. Through this testing by a sales or service
representative, a two-way communications link can be confirmed between a Radio Communicator and the
Central Station Receiver PRIOR to the installation of a SAFECOM system.

Introduction
1.3
SC3100, Full Data Transfer, Radio Communicator
The SC3100 Radio Communicator is a derivative of the capabilities and features found on the SAFECOM
SC4000. The SC3100 and the SC4000 share the same two-way communications characteristics and receivingand-sending functions of host alarm panel signals. However, the SC3100 is a non-UL Listed device and is not
configured with inputs or output relays.
The SC3100 is normally configured as a stand-alone device for interface with the customer's existing alarm
panel. It is located at a customer site; commercial or residential. The smaller physical dimensions of the SC3100
permits installation inside of many existing alarm panels. The antenna can be mounted directly on the alarm
panel enclosure, or remotely positioned for optimum radio reception and transmission.
The SC3100 is normally installed to Intercept all of the alarm panel signals from the host alarm panel (also
known as a dialer). The dialer message is then digitally encoded and sent to the Central Station SAFECOM
SC9000 computer via the SAFECOM network. When SAFECOM is installed, it is the primary means of alarm
panel communication (the phone line serves as the backup route). The SC3100 is capable of interfacing with
most alarm panels that use industry standard pulse formats (3+1, 4+2, FBI Superfast, Radionics Slow, etc.) or
Dual Tone Multiple Frequency, DTMF (ADEMCO Contact ID, ADEMCO High Speed, or ADEMCO 4+2 Express),
or SIA-R, or Radionics Modem and Modem IIe, or BFSK formats.
The SC3100 can be thought of as “a digital receiver in a box”, in that it has the ability to receive the signals from
the host alarm panel, and then generate an ACK and kissoff to the alarm panel, while sending the signal to the
Central Station SC9000 computer. The SC3100 sends all the necessary (ACK) tones to the host alarm panel in
response to the Dialer seizing the phone line. These ACK tones can be programmed at the Central Station
SAFECOM Computer to short and long durations, frequencies of 1400 or 2300 Hz, as well as low/high (Contact
ID) and the Bosch Security Systems D6500 Modem ACK. The SC3100 has the ability to emulate the following
digital receivers: ADEMCO 685, Bosch Security Systems D6500, Silent Knight, ADCOR, Veritech, Morse, and
ITI. In addition, the SC3100 can be programmed at the Central Station to send a 440 Hz tone to the Dialer to
simulate dial tone. This tone comes in two bursts lasting one second each, and is usually enough to satisfy alarm
panels that “sniff” the phone line for line fail.
The host alarm panel signals are sent to the Central Station SC9000 computer. Then, the signals are displayed
on the SC9000 computer and transferred to the Central Station's Automation Software (BOLD, SIS, SIMS, DICE,
MAS, or most industry standard software package). Primary routing of the digital alarm messages is conducted
along the SAFECOM network that exists between a SC3100 in the field and the Central Station SC9000
Receiver. The primary routing then moves the message to an automation software system.
The SAFECOM SC9000 computer can monitor all of the unique alarm panel signals from each SC3100. The
SC3100 functions strictly in a supervisory capacity when interfaced with an existing alarm system. The SC3100
is an intercept/delivery system which is designed for easy installation and interface with any alarm system. The
alarm panel dialer cable is simply connected to the SC3100 phone jack “DIALER” connector and the house
phone cable from the RJ31X jack, to the SC3100 RJ31X connector.
No modifications to the existing alarm system are required. The normal operation of the existing alarm panel and
security system is not affected in any way. The existing detectors and initiating circuits still report the status of
their circuits directly to the host alarm panel. When the host alarm panel goes to send a signal, it no longer uses
the phone line. The SAFECOM network is used to send all signals that will continue to be received at the Central
Station regardless of the phone line’s status. The house phones will normally not be interrupted by the alarm
panel.
The SC3100 requires an 11 - 15 VDC (12 VDC), 350 mA, power source. This 12 VDC power source is normally
provided by the auxiliary power terminal of the host alarm panel. However, an 11 -15 VDC auxiliary power supply
or external battery is an acceptable power source for the SC3100.
The SC3100 is configured with a 12VDC internal gel cell battery. This internal battery provides all of the
necessary peak current (ampere) requirements when the SAFECOM Radio Transceiver is transmitting (TX) and
receiving (RX). The Battery is mounted inside of the SC3100 Radio Communicator and is accessible by
removing the SC3100 cover and internal battery plate.
Each SC3100 is configured with a Fallback life safety feature. The Fallback mode of SAFECOM communications
ensures that all alarm event messages sent by the host alarm panel will be routed to the Central Station in case
of a SC3100 or SAFECOM network failure. It also provides the ability to perform alarm panel programming and
downloading via the telephone line.
Alarm panel signals are normally routed to the Central Station by SAFECOM radio communications as the
primary mode of transportation. In the event that the SC3100 cannot send the Dialer message via the
SAFECOM network because of some type of failure, the message is automatically routed to the backup phone
line and on to a digital receiver at the Central Monitoring Station (Fallback Mode).

SC3100 Circuit Board
JP1 - CPU Reset (Reboot)
This allows system reset or initialization of the Central Processor Unit (CPU). Shorting the two pins on this
header and cycling the system power will erase the program from the SC3100, making it operate as if it was a
“new, out of the box” unit.
Radio
This header is to connect the interface cable from the internal RA500 Radio Module to the radio adapter board
inside the SC3100.
JP-3-SP100 Charger Header
This four-pin header is used to interface the main SC3100 board to the SP100 Battery Charger board. The
SP100 is mounted “piggy-back” on this header, and is secured in place with a single ¼-inch standoff.
Note:
To operate the SC3100 without the supplied internal battery, remove the SP100 Battery Charger Board and
battery, and place a jumper across the two pins closest to the CPU on Header XX. This requires a stable wellregulated power source for operation without the internal battery.
Battery Cut-Off Relay
This relay disconnects the internal 12VDC battery from the SC3100 circuitry when the external DC power source
is removed.
Note:
Once the SC3100 is programmed and brought on-line, this relay is disabled.
R42 - TX Dev Adj
This is the adjustment for the Radio Transmitter Modulation Deviation set by Bosch Security Systems at the
factory. Do not make field adjustments.
Do not make field adjustments. Field adjustments of the Radio Transmitter Deviation made by unauthorized
personnel may violate FCC regulations.
U1 - Microprocessor
This contains the system program the SC3100 needs to operate. This program is downloaded into the
microprocessor from the SAFECOM computer via the SAFECOM radio network when the SC3100 is first
powered up. The label on the microprocessor specifies the CPU S/N and PID # of this particular SC3100.
U3 - Modem Chip
This is the SC3100 Modem used for converting the Serial Data stream from the SC3100 main board to an audio
signal that can be transmitted via the SAFECOM radio network.
2.2
System Status LED Indications
The System Status LED lights up to indicate the status of radio communications between the SC3100 and the
Central Station SC9000 computer. It also can indicate a low internal battery condition. The System Status LED
also functions as a hardware fault indicator.
There are 5 types of System LED indications for various conditions of a properly programmed SC3100 in the
field:
•
Rapid blinking green: The System LED blinks green continuously at a rate of 5 times per second. After 90
seconds of power-up, this LED indicates that the SC3100 is in radio communication with the Central Station
SC9000 computer and is online. This LED also indicates that the charge on the SC3100 internal battery is
Good (~ 11.5-14 VDC). Communications = Good, Battery = Good
•
Rapid blinking red: The System LED blinks red continuously at a rate of 5 times per second. After 90
seconds of power-up, this LED indicates that the SC3100 is not in radio communication with the Central
Station SC9000 computer and is offline. This LED also indicates that the charge on the SC3100 internal
battery is good (~ 11.5-14 VDC). Communications = Bad, Battery = Good
•
Slow blinking red: The System LED blinks red slowly 5 times, then pauses for one second, then returns to
the 5 slow red blinks. This LED indicates that the SC3100 system has shut down because the charge on the
SC3100 internal battery is so low that it cannot activate the radio transmitter to send a message.
Communications = Bad, Battery = Bad
The SC3100 will attempt to re-establish communications with the Central Station every 15 minutes after the low
battery shutdown condition occurs. If the charge on the SC3100 Battery has not reached a minimum of 11.5
VDC, then the SC3100 will remain in the shutdown condition for another 15 minute period. It will continue this
attempt then shutdown cycle until the battery charge has reached the minimum level.

The battery restore message will NOT be sent by the SC3100 until the charge on the SC3100 Battery has
reached a minimum of 11.5 VDC during transmit TX ACTIVE.
Note:
The SC3100 battery voltage is only tested when the radio transceiver is transmitting.
Note:
The SC3100 internal battery is shipped from Bosch Security Systems disconnected. The installer MUST open
the SC3100 enclosure and connect the internal battery connector. It is then recommended that the SC3100 be
programmed into the SC9000 computer and brought ONLINE for a minimum of 3 hours prior to installation to
charge the internal battery to a sufficient level. The SC3100 internal battery may NOT be charged to full capacity
after an idle, no-charge period, such as during shipping from Bosch Security Systems.

Radio Status LED Indications
The Radio Status LED illuminates to indicate the current transmit and receive status of the SC3100 Radio
Communicator. This is a bi-color (red & green) LED. It illuminates to indicate the current transmit (red) and
receive (green) status of the SC3100 internal radio module. This indication is helpful when sending and receiving
signals.
This LED will illuminate red when the SC3100 is Transmitting a signal to the Central Station.
This LED will illuminate green when the SC3100 is receiving any radio signals (Carrier Detect - CD) on the Radio
Receiver frequency. This green indication can mean the SC3100 is receiving a signal from the Central Station, is
hearing another SAFECOM Radio Communicator in the field, is being interfered with due to a high level of RF
noise in the area, or is being intentionally jammed on the RX frequency.

Pre-Installation Requirements
3.1
SC3100 Pre-Installation Requirements
Prior to the installation of the SC3100 Radio Communicator, several conditions must be satisfied and physical
phenomena considered to insure trouble free operation.
3.2
SC3100 Wiring Requirements
All wiring utilized for the installation of the host alarm panel and the SC3100 Radio Communicator shall be in
accordance with local building codes. The following is recommended gauge and type wiring for installation of the
host alarm panel and the SC3100:
•
Alarm panel dialer phone lines: in accordance with industry installation standards.
•
•
•
3.3
SAFECOM antenna RF cable: It is always preferred to utilize the RF cable provided by Bosch Security
Systems for installations of SC3100 Radio Communicators.
SAFECOM antenna RF cable for remote antenna installation: The antenna should be located remotely away
from the SC3100. For distances of 15 ft. (4.6 m) or less, use RG-58 or equivalent. For distances up to 30 ft.
(9.1 m), use RG-8 or equivalent. For distances exceeding 30 ft. (9.1 m), contact a Bosch Security Systems
SAFECOM Applications Engineer for recommendations.
12 VDC power from host alarm panel auxiliary power: Minimum 20 AWG (distance dependent).
DC Power Requirements of the SC3100 Radio Communicator
The SC3100 requires an 11-15 VDC (12 VDC), 350 mA, power source capable of providing 850 mA during
transmission if the internal battery is not used. The 12 VDC power source supplies the operating voltage
requirements for the SC3100 circuit board and charging the internal SC3100 battery. This 12 VDC power source
is normally provided by the auxiliary power terminal of the host alarm panel. However, an 11-15 VDC stand alone
DC power supply or external battery is an acceptable power source for the SC3100.
The SC3100 should not be connected to the battery terminal or smoke detector power of the host
alarm panel.
3.4
SC3100 Internal Battery
The SC3100 is provided with a 12VDC battery. This battery provides all of the necessary peak current (amperes)
requirements for the SAFECOM Radio Transceiver. This battery is mounted inside of the SC3100 Radio
Communicator and is accessible by removing the enclosure cover. Primary 12 VDC operating power for the
SC3100 is normally supplied by the host alarm panel.
Note:
The SC3100 internal battery might not be at full capacity after an idle no-charge period during shipping from
Bosch Security Systems. The SC3100 battery must be connected internally and charged for a minimum of 3
hours prior to initialization for radio communications. This will ensure that the SC3100 internal battery charge is
a minimum 11.5V DC when the SC3100 is initially powered up for operation.
3.4.1
SC3100 Internal Battery Replacement
The SC3100 is provided with an internal 12VDC, 0.8 AHr, sealed gel cell battery. A replacement battery may be

3.5
SC3100 Radio Communicator Location
The SC3100 Radio Communicator is designed to be installed inside of the host alarm panel. If the size of the
host alarm panel will not permit mounting the SC3100 inside or for special SC3100 configurations, then the
SC3100 enclosure can be mounted directly to a vertical surface, like a wall, using the keyhole mounting holes
provided on the rear of the SC3100 enclosure. This type of mounting will also require the use of an L bracket to
mount the factory supplied antenna. This L bracket is provided with all SC3100 units sold by Bosch Security
Systems. The L antenna mount bracket is Bosch Security Systems part number #80072-101.
The SC3100 is not environmentally sealed. Do not mount the SC3100 where it can be exposed to
the elements.
If the antenna is mounted directly on the exterior of the host alarm panel enclosure, the alarm panel should be
mounted on the inside of an exterior wall, for optimum radio transmission and reception. However, it should not
be mounted in close proximity to:
•
A cable bundle and/or wiring harness that is routed vertically and in close proximity to the SAFECOM
antenna.
•
A computer, PA, entertainment, or sound system.
The following should be considered when determining the location for mounting the SC3100:
•
Space restrictions of the host alarm panel.
3.6
•
Distance to the antenna from the SC3100 Radio Communicator.
•
Antenna proximity to a cable bundle and/or wiring harness.
•
Antenna proximity to computer, PA, entertainment, or sound systems.
•
Easy access by a service technician.
Antenna Location
Improper antenna location is the single most common problem found in SAFECOM installations. The only way to
properly determine the best location for the SAFECOM antenna installation is to use the SAFECOM IT1500
Tester.
IMPORTANT
The SAFECOM IT1500 Tester must have a minimum of 9dB of attenuation installed between the
Tester and the Tester’s antenna. If the Tester, along with the 9dB attenuator does not produce a
minimum of 10 “pass” indications following the tests, then the SAFECOM SC3100 Radio
Communicator cannot be installed in this location. Refer to the SC9000 Operations Manual section
titled “Using the IT1500 Tester” for more information on finding another location within this
building and testing possible antenna locations. For information on ordering an external
attenuator for your SAFECOM IT1500 Tester, contact a SAFECOM Applications Engineer at (800)
538-5807.
If the SC3100 Radio Communicator is installed inside of a host alarm panel, then the antenna must be mounted
externally to the host alarm panel. Do not mount the antenna inside of the host alarm panel enclosure.
A successful RF communications link between the SC3100 and the Central Station SC9000 computer may be
subject to external interference. Several environmental effects must be considered when determining the proper
location for mounting the SC3100 antenna.
Transmission and receipt of radio signals may be blocked by metal, mountains, hills, foliage and other natural
and man-made obstructions.
Some extent of radio signal degradation may be seasonal. Weather may significantly degrade reception ranges
due to propagation from temperature layers and reflection from the moisture content in the atmosphere.
Transmission and reception ranges may be reduced by dense foliage on trees and shrubs, or by snow. This
degradation is normally experienced during the spring and summer months when the presence of leaves tends
to block the signal path.
For optimum transmission and reception of radio signals, position the antenna as high as is possible within the
structure. Mounting the antenna on an elevated structure will enhance the line-of-sight Tx/Rx range and
communications link effectiveness. The antenna should NOT normally be mounted inside metal buildings or
enclosures. The proper antenna location is site specific for each installation.

SC3100
Pre-Installation Requirements
IMPORTANT
All sales personnel must be required to utilize the IT1500 Tester with a minimum of 9dB attenuator
installed between the IT1500 Tester and the Tester Antenna to determine if two-way radio
communication between the prospective customer site and the Central Station SC9000 computer
is possible before the job is sold.
After the initial testing is performed by the salesperson, the installer must be required to utilize the IT1500 Tester,
with a minimum of 9dB attenuator installed between the IT1500 Tester and the Tester Antenna, to determine the
proper antenna location within the customer site for installation.
The IT1500 is a portable tester which transmits a radio signal from the remote customer site to the Central
Station SC9000 computer and receives an acknowledge (ACK) message to verify a successful two-way
communications link for that particular geographic location and antenna position.
REMEMBER! Moving the antenna location as little as 4 in. (10.2 cm) in either direction can mean the difference
between a trouble-free site, or an angry customer who requires multiple service calls.
3.7
SC3100 Acceptable Antenna Types
The SC3100 is usually installed using the factory supplied omnidirectional (OMNI) antenna. However, if testing
using the IT1500 Tester, with a minimum of 9dB external attenuator installed between the Tester and the Tester
antenna, shows that the factory supplied omnidirectional antenna is not sufficient, the installer may choose to
use a direction, gain antenna. This type of antenna is usually referred to as a beam or Yagi type antenna. The
following is a partial listing of acceptable types of antennas for installation on or external to the SC3100 Radio
Communicator. Both the omnidirectional and Yagi type antennas are available to order directly from Bosch
Security Systems. Call (800) 289-0096 for more information.

Installation
The RF bulkhead connector, on the end of the factory supplied coaxial cable, may be installed directly on the
host alarm panel enclosure by using one of the following methods:
1. An existing knock-out port (on the top of the host alarm panel enclosure).
2. A ½ in. diameter hole, carefully drilled into the top of the host alarm panel enclosure.
3. The 2" x 2" factory supplied antenna mounting L-Bracket (P/N 80072-101).
Use the 1.5 inch diameter antenna mounting washers (P/N 80074-101), with the antenna coaxial cable assembly
to provide an adequate ground and physical support for the antenna when mounting the antenna on the top of
the host alarm panel enclosure. The L-bracket installation does NOT require using the antenna mounting
washers.
If a remote antenna location is required, mount the antenna in a suitable location as best determined by the
results of IT1500 Tester. Use the 2-inch x 2-inch antenna mounting L-bracket to attach the antenna to a beam or
supporting structure.
For remote antenna installations, Bosch Security Systems recommends using RG-58 for distances up to 15 ft.
(4.2 m). RG-8 for distances up to 30 ft. (9.1 m).

Note:
Backpoll: Backpoll specifies the maximum amount of time a SC3100 will tolerate no radio communications
with the SC9000 computer.
Recent changes to the SAFECOM System software have rendered the Backpoll feature obsolete.
•
Report Battery Trouble ?: If this parameter is set to “Y” for Yes, then the SC3100 will report a low battery
condition to the Central Station if this condition occurs. If “N” for No, the SC3100 will ignore a low battery
condition.
•
Intercept Digital Dialer?: Y or N: Specifies the routing of the host alarm panel signals to the Central
Monitoring Station. If "Yes" the alarm panel Dialer messages will be Intercepted by the SC3100 and sent to
the Central Monitoring Station via the SAFECOM radio network. If "No" the alarm panel Dialer messages will
ALWAYS be routed to the Central Monitoring Station via the telephone line.
•
Enable Auto Fallback?: Y or N: Specifies whether the SC3100 will automatically revert to the phone line
backup in the event of a SAFECOM system failure. If "Yes" the Fallback Mode (telephone backup) will be
initiated by the SC3100 if the alarm panel Dialer attempts to send an alarm message via the SAFECOM
radio communications system three consecutive times, and for some reason is not successful. If “No" the
Fallback Mode will not be initiated. This type of configuration is usually reserved for applications having no
phone lines.
•
Make Dial Tone?: Y or N: Make Dial Tone specifies whether the SC3100 will send a simulated dial tone to
the host alarm panel once the alarm panel prepares to send an alarm signal. If “Yes” the SC3100 will send
the Dialer two 440 Hz tones after Line Seizure. Each tone is 1 second in duration. The 2nd tone is sent 2
seconds after the 1st. If “No” the SC3100 will not simulate a dial tone to the alarm panel. Characteristics of
the alarm panel Dialer that the SC3100 will be communicating with dictate the selection for this entry.
•
Allow Dial Pause?: Y or N: Allow Dial Pause sets the amount of time that the SAFECOM SC3100 will
tolerate no activity after a digit has been dialed before deciding that the Receiver ACK tone should be
transmitted. This sets a timing parameter ,and therefore, must sometimes be experimented with for different
alarm panels in order to find the best choice.
•
Digital Format: Programming of the SC3100 “format” must match the format that the digital dialer is
sending. The tables below list the available formats and correct parameters. Please note that the PID
(Product Identification Code) in the SC3100 determines how the SC3100 will be programmed.

Digital XLAT: 0 to 8: The Digital Translation Table (XLAT) parameter tells the SAFECOM SC9000 computer
where to look up alarm signals. The translation table (XLAT) gives the operator the ability to assign a table,
and then build the table so that usually cryptic alarm signals like “31” will be looked up, in the translation
table (XLAT) assigned, and given a brief English text definition like, “BURG Z1”. This can be very useful in
the unlikely event of an automation failure. The translation table (XLAT) can allow the Central Station
Operators to process alarms from the SAFECOM SC9000 directly without looking up codes to understand
them. The translation text assigned to the Alarm Event Code is ONLY for display in the SAFECOM SC9000
computer and is NOT part of the Alarm message sent to the Automation software. Each Digital Translation
(XLAT) table in the SAFECOM computer has 240 possible entries for alarm event code to text
translation/definition. A maximum of 8 characters are available for each alarm event code
translation/definition. If “0” is selected for the translation table (XLAT) then all alarm signals from this
specific account will be displayed exactly as they are transmitted by the host alarm panel without any
translation/ definition.
Note:
The Digital Translation (XLAT) parameter does not have to be set for the SC3100 to operate properly.

Establishing Communications with the Central Station SAFECOM SC9000
Computer
To establish radio communications between an SC3100 in the field and the Central Station:
1. Ensure the correct S/N, PID #, Framer #, and RF Channel are entered in the SC3100’s account in the
SAFECOM computer.
Note:
The SC9000 computer is located at the Central Station.
2. Connect the positive (+ red) and negative (- black) wires from the SC3100’s Power Molex connector to the
host alarm panel auxiliary power source. Power On.
3. The Radio Status LED on the SC3100 should illuminate red (TX) and green (RX) to indicate that the
SC3100 Radio Communicator is transmitting and receiving. If the Radio LED does not illuminate red to
indicate that the system is transmitting after system Power On, a hardware component failure is possible.
When the SC3100 system detects a hardware failure, the System Status LED on the SC3100 will illuminate

System Initialization
red. The number of blinks indicates a specific type of hardware failure. The blinking cycle will continue until
the auxiliary power source is removed from the SC3100.
The following describes the red blinking behavior of the System Status LED during a hardware failure, and
should not be confused with System Status green LED illumination during normal SC3100 operations:
•
1 blink red, pause, then repeat: Bad ROM check sum.
5.3
•
2 blinks red, pause, then repeat: Failed RAM verify test.
•
3 blinks red, pause, then repeat: Invalid CPU serial number.
•
5 blinks red, pause, then repeat: The SC3100 internal battery is low and must be charged.
Manual Initialization of an SC3100 Radio Communicator
The SC3100 Radio Communicator may be manually reset/initialized. The reset/initialize function is performed by
a sequence involving momentarily shorting pins #1 and #2 on the JP-1 CPU RST Header. The JP-1 Header is
located on the main SC3100 circuit board and requires disassembly of the SC3100 Radio Communicator.
Note:
A manual initialization should only be performed if all efforts to initialize the SC3100 via a radio command from
the SAFECOM SC9000 Computer have failed. Manual initialization must be performed at the customer site and
requires removing the SC3100 panel cover and battery plate.
The following procedure will erase all the programmed data in the CPU with the exception of the CPU serial
number.
To manually initialize the SC3100 Radio Communicator:
1. Remove the auxiliary power source from the SC3100. Power Off.
2. Loosen the 4 retaining screws on the SC3100 panel cover and remove the cover.
3. Loosen and remove the screws and battery mounting shelf, exposing the main SC3100 circuit board.
4. Short the 2 pins on the JP-1 Header together. Keep the short in place.
5. Apply the auxiliary power DC power source to the SC3100. Power On. This step will Initialize the CPU. The
System Status LED will blink red three (3) times, pause, then repeat. This indicates that all of the Parameter
EEPROM Memory, in the CPU, has been erased.
6. Remove the short between the 2 pins on the JP-1 Header.
7. Remove the auxiliary power from the SC3100. Power Off.
8. Replace the SC3100 battery mounting shelf, panel cover and tighten four retaining screws.
Apply auxiliary power to the SC3100. Power On. This step will initiate a system startup. The SC3100 will behave
exactly like a brand new unit.
