Elmes Electronic CB32B is a programmable, wireless alarm control panel with integrated mobile phone module, designed for use in anti-robbery, intrusion detection and access control installations. It operates with any Elmes Electronic made wireless detectors, RP501 transmitterreceiver set, remote control transmitters and two wired detectors. Its three 1A current rated
fused alarm signalling outputs are designed for connecting external signalling devices such as
sirens, bells strobes and automatic alarm notification devices. The panel features a real-time
clock, non-editable memory log of last 256 events and may be programmed to be remotely
armed and disarmed by SMS and CLIP as well as send SMS alarm, status, failure and event
notifications. Backlit LCD panel displays appropriate status information while numeric keypad
allows convenient programming of the control panel. In the event of AC power failure, dedicated software procedures initiate low energy consumption mode allowing over 24-hour panel
autonomy operation with two internal 600-850mAh Li-ION rechargeable batteries (type 14500
– AA size). The panel supports up to 16 system users and enables monitoring of up to 32
wireless and two parametric wired detectors identified as alarm zones. Each user and alarm
zone can have any user defined 16 characters name.
The CB32B control panel may be connected to any wired alarm system to support wireless
detectors operation. It may be powered from the power supply line of the wired system, and its
three signalling outputs can be connected to alarm detection terminals of wired control panel.
WARNING! This wireless control panel has been designed to be as effective as
possible. However, there are circumstances that alarm system may fail to operate as
expected for variety of reasons. Users and installers are warned that radio signals
from wireless detectors and sensors may not reach the CB32B panel under all circumstances. Metal objects placed on radio transmission paths, deliberate jamming
or other radio signal interference can seriously reduce operating range.

(*) CLIP - Calling Line Identification Presentation.
If internal GSM module in the control panel will be used, then an active SIM card will be needed. The card should have SMS memory and address book cleared with voice mail box set off.
Used SIM card may have PIN code protection set on or off. If the PIN code is on then it should
have the PIN set to 1234. This can be done using any other mobile phone operating in the
same GSM network as the SIM card. The use of SIM card with other than 1234 PIN code
in the CB32G control panel may cause the card to be blocked!
In addition, two 3,7V Li-ION rechargeable batteries (type 14500, AA size) with minimal capacity of 600 mAh and AC/DC power supply pack with 10...20VDC - 1200mA (1.2A) output should
be prepared. The control panel may also be powered using external buffered power supply
(ups) which will provide longer autonomy operation of the panel on AC power failure. In that
case, the use of internal Li-ION batteries is not required.
The following steps should be followed at first setting on the control panel:
Remove back side part of cabinet.
If GSM module is to be used, insert prepared SIM card to card socket, observing
that the cut corner of the card is in the left upper corner of the socket. The SIM card
may also be inserted anytime providing control panel power supply is set off.
Connect power pack wires (plain without plug) to the control panel power supply
connectors observing marked polarity.
If needed, insert the Li-ION batteries to the CB32B battery compartments carefully
observing polarity marked inside.
WARNING! Correct battery polarity must be absolutely observed when inserting Li-ION batteries. Incorrect battery placement will cause panel damage and repair service will be required.
Plug in AC/DC power pack to mains outlet socket. The control panel will initialize
readiness to operate displaying software version and initial time and date.
Go to menu “Service Settings” (factory password: 0000) of the Main Menu and set
up required options to configure designed alarm system.
NOTE! The GSM module operation is factory set OFF. To set its operation ON go to option
7.8 of the Service Settings and change the option.
Connecting to GSM network will be indicated by fast flashing blue LED. Slow flashing with 2-3
seconds intervals indicates that the module is logged to the network. In menu “System Users”
of “Service Settings” user/s phone number/s can be input and operating mode with control
panel defined. Remaining module settings can be made in option 7 and 9 of Service Settings.
ADVICE! First operation and initial settings of CB32B control panel should be made on any
workshop place prior to its firm installation. Final place of the panel installation should be carefully selected to allow its central positioning with regard to installed wireless detectors and to
allow optimal GSM network reception. Wireless detector’s operating range can be checked in
section 3.5 while GSM network reception in section 10.1 of Service Settings menu.
Daily handling of the alarm system with the CB32B control panel involves arming and disarming of the system and checking possibly indicated alarm states. The control panel is operated
with the use of keypad buttons described below:
2▲,◄4, 6►, 8▼
- - numeric only buttons,
- - numeric and menu selection cursor buttons,
- - cancel and menu exit button,
- - selection acceptance & confirmation button.
Current status of the system – date/time, arming mode of the control panel are displayed on
the LCD while failure, alarm and arming information are indicated by two LEDs:
"ALARM” – lights on (red) at alarm detection and flashes indicating system failure. Alarm signalling is cancelled after entering the main menu or re-arming the system. Failure signalling is cancelled after eliminating its cause.
“ARMED” – lights on (green) when the system is armed, flashes when exit delay time is
counted down.
The causes of alarms or system failures can be viewed upon entering main menu by holding
down OK button and next selecting Alarm Memory or Failure Check submenu.
Arming and disarming of alarm system with CB32B panel may be done from the control panel
keypad, by remote control transmitter (later referred to as a “remote”), by mobile phone SMS
or CLIP. Disarming alarm stops alarming and silences alarm sirens.
1. Arming & disarming alarm from CB32B panel keypad.
There are two possible methods of arming and disarming using the keypad depending on the
system ”day/night” operation mode selection, see Service Settings (S.S. for short) 8.7:
1. By entering user’s password followed by OK the system will arm if in disarmed state or disarm if in armed state (day/night mode is not selected “N” - see 8.7).
2. By entering user’s password followed by OK the system allows a choice of one of four supervision modes selected with “1”,”2”,”3”,“4” keypad buttons (day/night mode is selected “Y” –
see 8.7.), as described further:
“1 - disarm” - disarming the alarm – “disarmed” status appears on display. “active 24h” anti-tamper zones remain armed.
“2 - arm”
- arming the alarm. On end of the exit delay (signalled acoustically and optically with displayed time countdown on the LCD panel), all alarm zones are
armed (*). “Armed” status appears on display.
“3 - day”
- partial arming of the alarm in day supervision mode. The zones earlier defined as “day armed” and the “active 24h” zones are armed (as in 3.1). The
“day mode” message appears on display.
“4 - night”
- partial arming the alarm in the night supervision mode. At the end of exit delay (signalled acoustically and optically) all alarm zones are armed (*), except
for earlier defined as „night disabled” (as in 3.1.). The “night armed” message
appears on display.
(*) Permanently disabled zones are not armed in any of the above modes!
2. Operating CB32B control panel using a remote.
The CB32G control panel can be remotely operated by the use of Elmes Electronic made remote control transmitters (e.g. one channel UMB100HT, two channels DWB100HT or four
channels CH4HT) in two ways, as described below:
2.1 Arming and disarming the system.
One channel remote, e.g. UMB100HT. By pressing control button of single channel
transmitter learned to CB32B panel would produce a single loud beep (*) and starts exit
delay time. On end of the exit delay the alarm system is armed. Next pressing of the same
control button would produce two loud beeps (*) and the system will disarm. If alarm occurred while in the system armed state, five loud beeps (*) would be produced on system
Two channels remote, e.g. DW100HT. Operation mode of the remote depends on settings
made at S.S. 5.7.
Four channels remote, e.g. CH4HT. Button 1 (green) disarms alarm system, button 2
(red) arms, button 3 (blue) arms in night mode, button 4 (grey) arms in day mode.
2.2 Remote activates entry delay only.
This mode is possible if „Remote sets on delay” function is selected in S.S. 8.1. Pressing
remote button activates entry delay signalled by two loud beeps (*) and “remote delayed”
zone type is disabled for as long as the entry delay time is set. While in entry delay, disarming of the system should be done by entering valid password from the keypad. Failure
to disarm control panel and violation of “remote delayed” zone during entry delay will set
up intruder alarm at the end of delay.
(*) Loud signal beeps can also be produced by an external siren wired to OUT1 (see 9.4),
then beeps from internal siren are at lower volume, or by wireless Elmes Electronic WSS siren
( see S.S. 9.5).
3. Arming & disarming using a mobile phone.
The GSM32B control panel may be remotely armed and disarmed by SMS command or CLIP
call from any entitled mobile phone number listed in the panel memory.
4. Arming the system bypassing selected alarm zones.
If, in the course of arming the system from control panel keypad, remote or mobile phone
SMS or CLIP, one of the zones detects intrusion, the response of the system depends on
whether the zone was earlier defined as “bypass” type (see item 3.1.g) and will be as follows:
if the zone is defined as “bypass” type (Y) – the system generates 3 beeps and, if
arming using keypad or remote transmitter only, prompts whether to arm the system
without arming the intruded zone. Acceptance with the use panel OK button or remote button arms the system bypassing that zone. The use of any other button or no
response (>8s) cancels arming procedure. Arming using mobile phone will arm the
system and in return SMS will be received informing of the bypassed zone.
if the zone is not defined as “bypass” type (N) – the control panel produces 3 beeps
and displays message “Violated zones” with zone name and system will not arm. In
that case, the cause of the zone violation should be cleared off and a new arming
should be made. While arming by mobile phone, the system will respond by sending
SMS with information on violated zones.
See also S.S. 9 – “System arming signalling modes”
Wireless detector monitor
Elmes Electronic CB32B control panel allows testing the operation of all wireless detectors installed in alarm zones by simultaneous display of their on/off status. To activate/deactivate
this function button “1” on the keypad must be pressed and hold down until two 16 points lines
scale appear/disappear on the LCD panel. The displayed points represent all 32 wireless detectors that can operate with the CB32B control panel. Any detector activated in the system
produces “*” mark to be momentarily displayed on the LCD at point position corresponding to
alarm zone number to which the detector was learned. Tamper switch activation in the detector produces mark “S” to be displayed in the corresponding zone point on the scale.
Anti-sabotage protection of external devices
Connecting TAMPER switches of external devices (e.g. outdoor siren) as shown on the diagram of Fig.2 enables anti-sabotage protection of these devices. Cutting off or shorting of the
tamper wire generates sabotage alarm in zone 32 of the control panel. If the TAMP terminal is
not used, it must be shorted to the GND terminal with 1kOhm resistor (supplied). The TAMP
input terminal may be used to connect any parametric wired alarm detector to the CB32G control panel.
Operation with wired alarm detectors
Two parametric zones of the CB32B control panel allow connection of any wired alarm detectors with NC (normally closed) output terminals. Input EXT of the panel connects wired detector to alarm zone 31 while input TAMP may be used to connect wired detector to alarm zone
32. Detectors’ outputs wiring should be parametric configured using resistors (supplied) with
one end wired to the GND terminal, as shown on fig. 1 of the manual. Wired detectors are
recognized by the panel the same way as wireless detectors. Alarms are detected in the zone
type selected by installer while sabotage protection is supervised as 24h type zone, permanently armed. Parametric resistors should be terminal connected inside wired detector’s housing. Wired detectors must be powered by external AC/DC power pack. To ensure detector’s
proper operation at AC power failure, power pack with integral battery backup should used
(buffered power pack).
IMPORTANT: Zones 31 and 32 of CB32B panel are factory set “disabled”. When wired detectors are installed, the zones should be enabled – see S.S. 3.4.
Operation with remote control transmitter (remote)
The use of Elmes made remote to operate with Elmes CB32B control panel allows remote
arming/disarming of alarm system as well as enables entry delay time for disarming from panel’s keypad. Also, panic alarm may be triggered using a remote. Detailed description of remote functions can be found in pt. 2 of Arming & Disarming of Alarm System section. Learning
a remote to CB32B panel is made according to S.S. 5.3. In addition, in “Auxiliary functions
settings” menu pt. 8.1, a selection must be made as to whether the remote arms/disarms the
system or sets on entry delay only. Also, in 8.8 – a selection whether panic alarm is required
or not and in 9.4 and 9.5 whether the use of a remote should be signalled on external siren.
Operation with external wireless siren
The Elmes CB32B wireless panel can operate with dedicated external wireless sound and
strobe siren Elmes WSS that features integral transceiver module allowing periodical siren
presence test. The siren is powered by external mains power pack (delivered with the siren)
that recharges internal, not serviceable, sealed battery being siren’s main source of power
supply. The following steps are required to set Elmes WSS wireless siren operates with the
CB32B control panel:
1. Learn the siren to alarm zone line 29 of the CB32B panel by selecting detector learning
mode (see 3.3) and activating the siren to transmit alarm signals in one of the three ways,
as below:
a. Connecting siren’s battery while mains power supply is off.
b. Connecting or disconnecting mains power while battery is connected.
c. Activating siren’s housing top cover sabotage switch.
2. Set required alarming time at OUT1 of the panel that equals to alarming time of the wireless siren (6.4).
3. Set required time interval (1 to 99 minutes – 20 minutes as standard) between which wireless siren presence is tested (as described in S.S. 6.5) and enable radio link testing (8.3).
4. Choose the way alarm system signals that radio link between wireless siren and the control
panel is in fault. If the system is expected to set on loud alarm along with failure indication
by LED, the function in pt. 8.11 should be set to ON. If only failure indication by LED is required then the function should be OFF.
5. If control panel is armed/disarmed from a remote (8.1), its use signalled by external siren
can be set off (see 9.4 and 9.5).
NOTICE! To avoid loud TAMPER alarm during maintenance service or installation when siren’s housing is to be opened, temporarily disable alarm zone line 29.
GSM features of CB32G control panel
The following features are available when using CB32B panel : remote arming and disarming
of alarm system by SMS or CLIP call, alarm system status notification, remote disabling of
alarm zones, SMS notifications to up to 8 mobile phones on alarms, arming/disarming, AC
supply failure and return as well as system failures. Notifications include information of the
source of the event. In case of intruder alarm and sabotage alarm, control panel makes also a
CLIP call to registered phone numbers. It may also operate with any GSM mobile monitoring
system by responding to its test signals and sending cyclic SMS notes or making CLIP calls.
CB32B panel configuration and firmware upgrade using PC
The CB32B control panel can be easily configured and firmware upgraded with the use of
Windows® based PC (Personal Computer). To connect the panel to PC a dedicated USB-RS
interface cable is needed (ordered separately). Also, installation of virtual COM port drivers at
the PC are necessary. The drivers as well as dedicated “CB32B Configurator” configuration
software are free for download from the panel manufacturer web site: .
Before any data is send to or received from the CB32B panel, the following installation steps
should be followed:
1. Select serial COM port that appears new in “CB32B Configurator” options after connecting
the USB-RS interface cable to PC.
2. By holding down button “2” of the panel’s keypad at power on, force the panel to set up
communication mode with PC. Displayed flashing “?” sign on panel’s LCD confirms the mode
has been entered.
To access the main menu of the CB32B panel press and hold down OK button for more than
two seconds. Navigate the menu using vertical and horizontal cursor keys. If the keypad is not
used for more than two minutes the menu exits and display of the current status of the control
panel on the LCD panel returns.

user No.1 is „0000”. Exit from the menu and cancelling entries are made by the C button. Users Nos. 1-4 (administrators) have access to all functions whereas other users may access
functions 1-2 only. All editable service settings available in this menu are described further.
1. Event Memory
Service settings → Event memory
This menu allows viewing detailed information on last 256 events that occurred in the system
(alarms, failures, arming, disarming, errors, etc.). Event memory cannot be edited, and allows
only viewing the event details in the sequence of their occurring date and time. Buttons ▲▼
select an earlier or later event while ◄► buttons select between type of event and its source,
e.g. “Arming” ↔ “John”.
2. Password Change
Service settings → Password change
This menu allows changing user’s own password. Password of other users can be changed in
the “Users” menu (see pt. 5). After accessing this menu “Enter password” prompt appears.
Enter new password containing 3 to 6 digits, and then press OK. When the “Repeat password” prompt appears, enter the new password again and press OK. The new password replaces old one. In case of entering an existing or incorrect password “Wrong password” message appears.
3. Zone Settings
This menu contains several submenus. Entering any submenu with ▲▼ buttons selects
zones while ◄► buttons select between zone number or zone name, e.g. “Zone no 1” ↔
3.1. Assigning functions to alarm zones.
Service Settings → Zone settings → Zone function
In this menu Elmes CB32B control panel allows assigning functions to alarm zones. Buttons
▲▼ select one of the functions described below while ◄► buttons allow setting the function
ON (Y) or OFF (N). The use of OK button accepts the selection while the use of C button cancels changes and exits the menu without saving changes.
a) “24h”
b) “day armed”
c) “night disabled”
d) “remote delayed”
e) “delayed”
f) “chime”
g) “bypass”
- 24 hour zone, e.g. anti-sabotage zone (permanently armed),
- zone armed in day supervision mode selection,
- zone disabled in night supervision mode,
- zone with entry delay set on by remote control transmitter,
- standard entry zone with delayed alarming,
- zone with door chime beep feature on zone violation,
- zone that can be left disarmed if violated on system arming.
A standard zone has functions a)..c) set off in armed state mode, when the system is “armed”
or in “night armed” mode and disarmed when the system is “disarmed” or in “day armed"
mode. IMPORTANT: Zones can have assigned more than one function, but some functions
exclude others. In that case, only one selection is valid, e.g.:
if a zone is “active 24h” then functions such as “day armed”, “night delayed”, “delayed”,
and “bypass” have no meaning;
if a zone is delayed, it should not be disabled by remote.
Examples of assigning functions to alarm zones:
Entry zone can be “remote delayed”, i.e. after using remote button entry delay countdown
is started. Security violation in the zone during the countdown will not generate the alarm
immediately, but after the countdown is finished. That allows user sufficient time for safe
disarming the system.
Entry zone can also be a delayed zone, i.e. when the zone is violated, the entry delay
countdown starts and the system must be disarmed before the countdown is finished. If
system is not disarmed an audible alarming sets on.
The “chime type” zone which often is also a “delayed” or “remote delayed” zone, generates two beeps sound signal on every violation of the zone (e.g. notifying customer entrance to a store).
A basement zone can be “day armed” but it cannot be “active 24h” simultaneously.
A „bypass” zone type allows arming the alarm while intentionally leaving a window
opened protected by CTX3H or CTX4H detector (see “System Arming”).
3.2. Zone name.
Service settings → Zone settings → Zone name
This menu allows alarm zones used in the system to have user defined up to 16-character
name, e.g.: kitchen, living room, office, Mark’s Room, etc. Uppercase and lowercase letters,
digits and the following characters are accepted: space, “-,./”.
Buttons ◄► select the successive letters of the name while the ▲▼ buttons browse character table. Accept name with OK button. Use C button to exit the menu.
3.3. Learning wireless detectors.
Service settings → Zone settings → Learning detectors
In this menu use the ▲▼ buttons to select zone number, and the ◄► buttons to toggle between displaying the zone number and zone name, e.g.: zone 1 ↔ kitchen. OK button accepts
all selections. If detector is already learned to selected zone, “OK-remove” prompt appears.
Pressing OK button deletes detector in the zone. If zone is vacant, the “OK-learn” will appear
on the LCD. Pressing OK button starts learning detector to the zone. In response to the
“Awaiting trans. 1” and “Awaiting trans. 2” prompts, two successive alarm transmissions must
be triggered from detector (*). Correct learning will be followed by “OK-correct” message. Errors are signalled by 3 beeps and “Program error” message. The use of C button exits the
(*) For detailed information on how to learn any Elmes detector to Elmes CB32B control panel
please refer to instruction manual of the detector.
3.4. Zone disabling.
Service settings → Zone settings → Zone disabling
Buttons ◄► disable and enable zone selected with ▲▼ buttons. Accept selection with OK
button. Exit the menu with C button.
3.5. Radio range test.
Service settings → Zone settings → RF range test
To assess the level of radio reception of signals received from detectors, the most distant detectors in particular, the CB32B panel is provided with “RF range test” function allowing the
received signal level to be displayed on 16-point bar graph scale of LCD.
After entering this menu all RF signals in the 433.92MHz radio band will be displayed in form
of bar graph. The detectors should be triggered to send alarm transmissions. The longer the
distance of the detector from the control panel, or the greater difficulty in radio waves propagation, the lower the level of received signals and the length of the displayed bar graph. If the
number of displayed fields is lower than three it should be assumed that this connection does
not guarantee reliable alarming. The location of detectors or the control panel should be
changed in search for better connection quality. The “RF range test” function allows also assessing levels of all local RF signals in the 433.92MHz band, also those that can interfere and
disturb operation of the wireless alarm system. The test should be carried out prior to permanent installation of alarm devices or, in search for causes of short operation range. To find out
any interfering signals, the LCD bar graph 16-point scale readouts should be observed without
activation of own detectors. Frequent or continuous unknown RF signals received and signalled on the control panel display indicate close presence of other RF devices operating in
the same RF band. If level of these signals exceeds three fields displayed in the “RF range
test” function and their occurrence is frequent, acceptable signals from detectors may not be
received and the alarm system may fail to operate properly.
4. Outputs settings
Service Settings → Outputs settings
In this menu intended use of wired outputs of the control panel can be defined. All three outputs of the panel are OC type and connect to ground in active state. Output OUT1 is designed
exclusively for connecting external signalling device and can be sabotage protected (see S.S.
pt. 8.4). In addition, this output can be configured to signal the use of a remote. The use of
wired outputs OUT 2-3 could have the following designation:
- for connection of outdoor/external alarm signalling devices, e.g. external siren or/and strobe. Alarming time can be set within 0-999 seconds range separately for each output (see 6.4);
“AC power failure” - signalling AC power supply failure/cut off;
- signalling on system armed or night armed and inactive on system
disarmed or in day armed mode;
- signalling any failure state in system (also AC power failure).
Example: if “arm/disarm” signalling mode is selected at OUT 2 and the output is connected
to powered external LED, lamp, etc., it will switch on the device for as long as system is
armed warning of the security system being in supervision state. The “arm/disarm” mode
can also be used for remote control. For example, operated with Elmes ST100HGR controller
it may control opening/closing of window rollers.
Signalling mode at OUT 2-3 are set by accessing the menu, selecting output number with
▲▼ buttons, accepting with OK, then selecting signalling type with ▲▼ or ◄► buttons and
accepting with OK button.

Designing and installation of alarm system with the Elmes Electronic CB32B control panel
should start with careful planning of detectors, control panel and outdoor siren placement. To
ensure satisfactory protection of secured premises a variety of detectors may be needed.
Elmes Electronic PTX50 wireless motion detector and CTX3H or CTX4H wireless magnet
contact detectors should be installed in each protected room with window. Additionally, GBX1
wireless glass break detector could be installed for protection of windows breakage in premises and shops. Depending on needs, one or two wired detectors can be connected to parametric EXT and TAMP inputs of the panel. The panel will also operate with RP501 four channel
transmitter offering one to four wired detection inputs to be monitored remotely. Learning the
RP501 transmitter to the CB32B control panel by activation of input no 4 will learn all four
transmitter’s inputs to four adjacent alarm zones of the panel. Activating input four of the
RP501 while learning the transmitter to zone 20 of the panel will assign four RP501 inputs to
alarm zones no 17, 18, 19 and 20. When installing detectors and RP501 transmitter respective instruction manuals must be followed.
It is highly recommended that before permanent installation of detectors or control panel operating range tests should be taken to confirm reliable communication of the devices with the
CB32B panel. The RF range test allows evaluation of operation range of wireless devices.
This function available in Service Settings menu (3.5) and may also be helpful in detecting
any interfering radio signals. If signals received by the control panel are weak, there may be a
need to relocate installation places of some detectors or the control panel. In the extreme
cases, it is recommended that Elmes Electronic TRX signal repeater to be used to ensure
proper performance of the alarm system.
Installation place of detectors is determined individually. Access to the control panel should
meet specific needs of protected premises but it is not recommended to place the panel next
to the door or in place easily accessible. Best suggested way of disarming the alarm system is
to activate entry delay from outside of the premises with the use of a remote. It allows safe
opening the entrance door, access control panel keypad to disarm the system with password.
The entry delay programmed by an installer or user should allow convenient access to the
control panel keypad.
The CB32B control panel may also be installed in place such as bedroom or study room, allowing complete elimination of the entry/exit delay time. In that case, arming and disarming of
the alarm system from the outside of premises can be made with the use of a remote or mobile phone. Arming and disarming will be audibly signalled by siren or visually by lamp connected to an output configured to arming and disarming signalling.
The panel features also the option of arming alarm system in the night mode with selected
rooms excluded from supervision (e.g. bedrooms, upper floor), as well as the day mode in
which only the selected rooms (e.g. cellar, basement, garage) are supervised. Arming entire
alarm system, or in night/day modes is done with the use of the CB32B panel keypad. Arming
entire system or arming in the night mode only is also possible with the use of remote. All options and functions of alarm system designed with CB32B control panel are user selected and
set in the Service Settings menu of the panel.
To ensure proper operation the CB32B control panel requires external AC/DC power supply
with 10...20VDC and 1200mA minimum current output.
Initial powering of the panel starts with inserting two 3,7V Li-ION rechargeable batteries
(14500 type, AA size) observing indicated polarity and screwing in DC output wires of the
AC/DC power pack to +/- terminals of the panel. Plugging the pack to AC outlet backlights the
LCD panel and displays software version followed by initial date (day_month), time (hour: minute: seconds:).
- 18 -
IMPORTANT! Use AA size (14500 type) 3,7V LI-ION rechargeable batteries only with recommended capacity of minimum 600 mAh. The use of other than Li-ION batteries is not permitted. Correct battery polarity must be observed when inserting Li-ION batteries. Incorrect
battery placement will cause panel damage and repair service will be required. The use of
batteries with lower capacity than recommended could not guarantee 24 hours of autonomy
operation on AC power failure.
CAUTION! Batteries contain dangerous and poisonous substances. Do not dispose of waste
batteries with household waste. Dispose waste batteries according to your local recommendations or, ask for disposal instructions your battery supplier.
When operating CB32B connected to wired alarm system with power supply backup does not
require Li-ION battery installation and the control panel may be powered by the wired alarm
13,6 VDC auxiliary supply line voltage dedicated to power detectors, sirens, etc.
The CB32B control panel can also be operated without internal Li-ION batteries installed.
However, in order to assure its proper operation under AC power failure condition a buffered
power supply (ups) should be used. The use of buffered power supply with integral back up
battery is best recommended power supply solution.
NOTICE! Manufacturer supplies control panel with zone 31 EXT and zone 32 TAMP disabled
and anti-sabotage control of output OUT1 set off allowing connection of external siren and
power supply to the CB32B panel without activating sabotage alarm. After completing system
connections, inserting the batteries and closing panel case, the anti-sabotage protection
should be enabled.
Designed alarm system may be less or more complex depending on individual needs. Simplest alarm may consist of only few detectors and the control panel with internal siren for audible signalling, while complex alarm system would have a range of detectors in addition to internal and external signalling devices.
The diagram presented further shows an example of a complex alarm system with the use of
Elmes Electronic PTX50 wireless motion detectors, CTX3H and CTX4H magnet contact (with
open & close signalling function) detectors, GBX glass break detector, UBM100H remote control for activating entry delay and panic alarm, wired external siren and CB32G control panel.
The system should be power supplied from a dedicated buffered power pack (if external,
wired siren is installed) with integral battery backup. If only wireless devices are used in the
system, it is sufficient to use control power with AC/DC pack and Li-ION rechargeable batteries. Other advisory examples of alarm configurations with CB32B wireless control panel are
shown on Fig.1 and Fig.2.
Wiring of external equipment such as sirens and AC/DC power supply line to the CB32B control panel terminals, should be made through large installation whole and a cable groove in
the bottom part of its cabinet. Suggested installation of the control panel is in vertical position,
e.g. on the wall at the height of approx. 1.20 to 1.40m, allowing convenient entering keypad
commands. The configuration procedure for an exemplary alarm system described further assumes that the user will use a remote control to activate the entry delay. It is recommended to
make basic settings, learn detectors and carry out the first tests on workshop table before
permanent installation in the premises. Following, are some essential basic steps to be taken
at first wireless alarm system configuration setting:
Unpack the CB32B control panel, insert Li-ION batteries (if needed) carefully observing polarity (+/-) marked inside the panel cabinet and connect AC/DC power supply pack. After the control panel initialisation follow steps, as below:
- 19 -
1. Enter Service Settings menu by pressing and holding down OK button (initial password:
0000), and input current date and time (6.1). Enter new password (5.1), the name of the
first user and learn remote control transmitter to the user.
2. Unpack wireless detectors: Elmes Electronic PTX50 (motion), CTX3H or CTX4H magnet
contacts (opening/closing) and GBX1 (glass break), install batteries and configure according to the included manuals and requirements of the alarm system. Install wired siren or learn dedicated WSS outdoor wireless siren to CB32B panel.
3. Learn detectors to alarm zones of the panel (3.3) and test their operation with the “Alarm
detector monitor” function by pressing and holding down button 1 of the keypad until 2 x
16 dots appear representing alarm 32 zones and detectors. For details see ....
4. Set the zone with the entry detector as a „remote delayed” zone (S.S. 3.1.d).
5. Set the entry delay time (6.2) according to individual requirements.
The above steps allow first workshop tests of the constructed alarm system. The CB32B panel’s internal siren will audibly signal all alarms and arming/disarming commands. After initial
testing the control panel and detectors could be installed in selected places, while checking
for the level of the radio signals received from each detector by the control panel (“RF range
- 20 -
test”- see 3.5 of S.S.). Other person help may be needed to activate detectors while the signal
level readouts are watched and evaluated.
To enable the anti-sabotage protection against detaching the control panel from wall, the
square piece of the backside plastic over the Tamper switch should be removed.
With the system installed and tested in basic configuration, other devices such as an outdoor
siren/strobe device can be added. Also, some other functions of the CB32B panel such as anti-sabotage of the OUT1 output (8.4), disable signalling on the internal siren (8.5) or the RF
link test between detectors and the control panel, can be defined and set. New users with
names (section 5) can be added as well as names of alarm zones can be defined (in 3.2)
In a sample installation in Fig. 2, an external wired siren, wireless detectors, wired detectors
and buffered power pack (Z1) ensuring operation of the system at AC power failure are used.
The power pack supplies power to control panel, external siren and wired detectors. The external siren should be connected to OUT1 alarm output. The OUT 2 output signals the
armed/disarmed status while the OUT 3 – failure of 230VAC mains power.

simply enter and leave the menu, the let light sets off.
3. Why occasionally sabotage (tamper) alarm is notified in zone 30?
- the reason is radio band jamming occurring in the area of panel installation. The jamming
may be incidental or deliberate. User may set OFF the radio jamming protection function
in sub-menu 8.2 of aux functions however, the entire wireless alarm system is not protected then against deliberate jamming of used radio band and burglary may not be notified.
4. Why sabotage alarm in zone 32 is set on after connecting power supply?
- the reason is panel’s tamper switch not properly functioning. Check if plastic element
protecting switch arm is removed. If not remove it and adjust its arm by gentle bending to
signal the panel being moved off wall, or place of installation. Use washer to adjust proper
distance of switch arm from wall. The other reason of the alarm may be lack of 1kOhm resistor in sabotage protection circuit (input TAMP).
- sabotage protection of OUT1 is set on (pt. 8.4) and no siren is connected to this output
or, wires to the siren are cut off.
5. Despite CLIP call rejection, control panel calls three times with CLIP call notification ?
- in case of some mobile phone operators reaction to call rejection is “call recipient unavailable, please try later…” lasting up to 20 seconds. Only after then the control panel receives information that the call was rejected. Sometimes it is too late and the panel has already disconnected as the CLIP notification time has lapsed. This, in consequence,
launch next connection attempts by the panel. To solve the issue, calling time should be
prolonged at pt. 7.4 to 30-35 seconds or, calling recurrence set to OFF at pt. 7.10.5
6. Why the control panel does not respond to wireless detectors signals despite they are
programmed to the panel?
- it may be due to the fact that the detectors were programmed to the panel with the use of
TAMPER switch triggering radio transmission. New programming of the detectors to the
control panel should be made with radio transmissions triggered according to the procedures described in manuals of the detectors.
7. Control panel does not send SMS notifications? Possible causes:
- newly used SIM card in CB32G is not initialised. To initialise a new card install
the card in any mobile phone and make a call or send SMS first;
- no event is assigned to SMS notification. Select events, e.g. arming, alarming,
etc., to be notified by SMS in pt. 5.6 of CB32G manual;
- daily limit of set SMS notifications has been exceeded. To increase the limit
change setting in pt. 7.2 or 7.3 or wait till 12.00 hours for new daily limit count.
