When installing a system in accordance with PD6662, the system standby times and effective output currents depend
on the Security Grade of the system and how mains fail is signalled to the Alarm Receiving Centre.
POWER SUPPLIES conform to the requirements of EN50131-6:2008 (including the recommendations of BSIA Form
180).
Power supplies are rated in accordance with the requirements of EN50131-6, which are related to the maximum
battery size that can be accommodated in the housing and vary according to the grade of the system in which they
are installed, as per the following table:
Electrical

NOTES:
1. PCX power supplies are NOT designed for use with multiple batteries connected.
2. System load should not exceed the PS rating quoted above, or the maximum load supportable by the battery for
the specified backup time, as in the table below.
3. PS ratings are based on battery shown in table – but ANY battery capable of supporting the system load for the
required time may be used without affecting these ratings.
As a guide, the following table shows how much load you can place on the system in order for a battery of the given
size to keep the system running for the required amount of time:

CHAPTER 12. OPTIONS PROGRAMMABLE ONLY FROM PC
The PCX 46 has functionalities that can only be programmed from UDL Insite software:
 Auto Arm & Disarm Timer

Logic Gates
Auto Arm/Disarm Timers
To program AUTO ARM/DISARM open the UDL software and click on “Auto-Arm/Logic Gates” button.
The window below will be displayed:
Provision is made to have two arm/disarm periods for each day, so a
building could automatically be secured during a lunch/siesta period in
the middle of the day. For example, Monday 1 represents the first period,
and Monday 2 represents the second period for Monday.
To turn on Auto Arm, just tick the ‘enable’ box, and then adjust the ‘arm
time’ and ‘disarm time’ as required.
Along with the regular arm/disarm, periods during the week such as
holiday settings can also be configured (such as a bank holiday). To add
dates which are to follow your ‘holiday’ rule, use the pop-up calendar,
highlight the required date and press ‘Add Holiday’. The date will then
appear in the list above.
The areas that you wish to control with the Auto Arm feature are
configured by clicking on the “Areas to Arm/Disarm” tab, which brings up
the screen below.
A calendar is also availalbe so that specific operations can be programmed for specific dates.
“WARNING PERIODS ” AND “DELAY TO ARM” TIMERS
When the panel is due to Auto Arm, it will sound a warning at the
keypads alerting anybody inside the premises to the fact that the panel
is about to arm. This warning will sound for as long as the ‘Warning
Period’ programmed (left) in the ‘Initial Arm’ section. If there is no user
intervention then the panel will arm at the end of the warning period.
If however somebody enters their code at the keypad, the panel will
post-pone the Auto Arm. The length of time for this delay is programmed
in the ‘Delay Time to Arm’. This time represents the number of minutes
after the panel first sounded the warning period.
In the example, there is a warning time of 3 minutes and a delay to arm
time of 5 minutes. If the automatic arm time is programmed to 12’50.
This means the panel will arm at 12’53 (3min warning time) and if a
code will be entered within the 3 min the panel will delay the arming
procedure to 12’55 (5min arm delay) user postponed setting of the panel 1 minute into the warning period, the panel
will next try setting in a further 4 minutes (5 minutes from the time the panel first started sounding the warning
time). The panel will again sound a warning tone before it finally arms.
Auto Arm can only be deferred once. Any input open at the time of
arming will be automatically bypassed if the ‘System Option’ “Auto Arm
Force” is enabled and the open input has the “Allow Bypass” attribute
enabled.
After downloading programming changes to the panel, you must hang-up
the call so that the changes get saved.
Programming Logic Gates
Logic Gates allow to use of ‘logical operations’ (OR, AND and
NOT) to give greater control of how an output is activated. Rather
than having an output activated following a ‘burglary’ alarm, it is
possible to create an output that is activated when there is a
‘burglary in area A’ AND when area C is also armed. This could be
useful in a scenario where different offices are occupied in different areas, and you do not want an
external communicator or siren to signal an alarm in one area if other areas are still occupied.
Page: 30
PCX 46 Engineer Reference Manual
5 logic gates are available for programming. To program logic gates enter the option “Auto Arm & Logic Gates” in UDL
and select the ‘Gates’ tab.
Each gate can only be programmed with one ‘logical operator’. For example, a gate can be programmed as A OR B OR
C, but not A OR B AND C.
If you wish to combine different logical operators you will need to split the operation between two logic
gates. Thus to obtain A OR B AND C you can use the flowing logic: Logic Gate 1 = A OR B; Logic Gate 2
= Logic Gate 1 AND C. The following example shows how you would program up the command:
{[“Burglary Any” OR “Tamper Any”] AND “Ready C”}:
Once you have your logic gates programmed you can assign them to outputs using the “Outputs”
dialogue box. Thus we have the Gate 16 programmed now assigned to End station output 1 as below
(NOTE: YOU COULD USE A NOT GATE TO REVERSE THE POLARITY OF AN OUTPUT)
