the inspection and testing of installation wiring.
All installation wiring MUST be checked PRIOR to termination in the panel.
The following checks are recommended:
-
Check the continuity of all cable runs (including cable screens).
-
Check the impedance of all signal cable runs. Ensure that, in alarm mode, any voltage drops
induced do not compromise device operation or compatibility. Ensure that cable impedance
does not exceed any specific requirements detailed in the remainder of this document.
-
Check the isolation between all cores and between cores and screen/earth. Minimum
isolation of 2MOhms is required.
-
Check that the screen of all signal cables is not grounded to earth elsewhere in the
building and that it is installed in accordance with recommendations – refer to relevant
wiring installation sections in this document for more information.
-
Check that signal cables are not run in cable trays, or the like, alongside power cables for
this and other equipment.
3.4.3 Mains Power Input
-
The DX Connexion Series Fire Alarm Control Panel receives power from a single-phase, 230V,
50Hz, mains supply. The mains input terminal block is located on the PSU-mounting bracket and in
the same way for all DX Connexion Series variants.
-
The incoming power feed cable Ground or Earth (Green/Yellow) wire should be connected to the
mains terminal block earth connection – middle terminal.
-
Connect the neutral (Blue) wire to the top terminal and connect the Phase or Live (Brown) wire to the
bottom terminal. The mains terminal block contains an integral fuse to provide the required overcurrent protection. Rating of the fuse is quoted on the label (located on the front of the PSU-mounting

this test fails BATTERY WIRING FAULT is displayed on the LCD. Check for poor battery
wiring connections and remedy. If the batteries require charging the test is suspended
for a period of up to 12 hours and re-applied. If the batteries have not reached the
required minimum voltage the warning is displayed to indicate that the batteries may
need replacing.

Battery Operation
-
The main microprocessor of the panel periodical checks the state of the AC Mains, battery and
charger circuit. The panel will automatically switch over to the standby battery source when the AC
Mains fails.
-
When the panel is operating from AC Mains, the panel checks the output of the charger and whether
the battery is present. To do this, it momentarily turns off the charger output and checks the battery
voltage (battery missing if <15.0V). In a fire alarm condition, the charger is turned off to provide
additional current to the outputs.
-
When the panel is operating from the battery standby source, the panel will indicate when the
battery is low (<21.5V) and will automatically switch off the standby power to prevent irreversible
damage (deep discharge) to the batteries (<20.0V).

3.4.5 Detection Loops
3.4.5.1
General Information
-
The control panel supports analogue detectors with a data transmission system. It provides power
and communicates with the initiating devices over a two-wire circuit. All signalling loops communicate
with the panel using a proprietary protocol. In some market regions the selection of protocol
manufacturer is not available. Refer to the Product Market Variations Manual for details.
-
The number of detection loops provided on each of the panels is as follows:

Maximum of 10
secs to respond
to MCP alarms.
Enclosure Size
-
It is possible for up to 800 addressable input points to be
connected to the DXc4 Series panel.
-
To comply with EN54-2 requirements, a maximum of 512
sensors/ MCP’s (input points) only should be connected to
the control panel across all analogue detection loops. This
limit includes any conventional detectors/ call points connected
to the system via zone monitors.
-
The panel conforms with the requirements of EN54-2 for MCP
alarm input response time.
The detection circuit should be separated from other cable runs to minimize the risk
of external interference. Under extremely noisy conditions, twisted pair wire is
recommended to further reduce interference.
The Detection Loop Circuits are supervised and power limited.
3.4.5.2
Cable Requirements
-
Shielded cable must be used for all detection (SLC) circuits. It is important that the shield is always
terminated to a good earth connection at both ends of the loop – earthing connection points are provided
in the enclosure for this purpose. The shield should never be connected to any other earth point in the
building. Refer to Appendix 1 Specifications for guidance on recommended fire-rated cables.
-
The core size, length of wiring run and detection circuit loading will produce a voltage drop along the
length of the cable. To determine if the loop driver can fully support the planned loop configuration,
use the detector manufacturers’ calculations for voltage and capacitance.
ALWAYS check that conductors of appropriate diameter are used so that the voltage
at the detectors is within the detector manufacturer’s specification.
The maximum permitted impedance for the SLC Loop is 40 ohms. This must be
reduced if loop powered sounders are installed.
-
The following table lists the maximum recommended cable loop lengths for each detection loop
using the indicated cable conductor sizes. Wiring to external devices should follow the appropriate
manufacturer’s instructions.

Loop Wiring Installation
The SLC (detector) circuits should be installed as loops with or without isolator modules. The wiring
details are as described below.
EN54
!
EN54-2: 12.5.2
Maximum of 32
sensors/ MCPs
between isolators.
For best results and system integrity:
The detection loop circuit should be wired as a loop with
short circuit isolators. This will allow the system to still
function, even if a section of the cable becomes short
circuited. It is recommended that short circuit isolators
be fitted to the detection loop to prevent an external short
circuit from removing more than 32 addressable points
from the system.
-
The detection loop connections are made
on terminal blocks at the top of the base
card. The diagrams opposite show the
location of the terminal blocks and typical
wiring connections.
-
The DXc1 variant has only one connector
available – i.e. Loop 1. The DXc2 and DXc4
have four connectors available – only Loops
1 and 2 are used on the DXc2.
-
Form the loop by taking wires from the
positive and negative terminals, at one side
of the connector on the base card – see
opposite.
-
Proceed with installing wiring, around the
loop, connecting all devices – see below.
-
Return the wiring to the positive and
negative terminals at the other side of the
connector on the base card.
-
Ensure that all devices connected to the
loop are correctly oriented for positive and
negative connections.
-
Refer to the detector manufacturers’ data
sheet supplied with the signalling device.

Morley-IAS
Figure 13 - Loop Wiring with Isolators
DO NOT loop the wiring under any terminals. Break the wire run to maintain
supervision.
-
It is recommended that short-circuit isolators be installed. Install the isolators at strategic points in
the loop (i.e. zonal boundaries) to prevent an external short circuit from removing more than 32
addressable points from the system. Refer to the diagram above for information.
Note: The loop driver modules have built-in isolators so it is not required to place isolator modules
on the outputs of the FACP. The Loop functions satisfactorily without isolators fitted, however, this
method is not recommended.
3.4.5.4
Unused Loops
-
If one of the loops is not to be used, the
outputs must be connected to the inputs at
the terminal block.
-
If the loop wiring is left open, the panel will
report an open-circuit wiring fault even
though there are no devices connected to
the loop.

3.4.6 Sounder Circuits
-
Shielded cable must be used for all sounder
circuits. The drain wire should be terminated
to a good earth connection at only one end of
the cable. There are some connection points
in the panel enclosure for this purpose. Keep
the connection as short as possible. Refer to
Appendix 1 Specifications for a list of
recommended cables.
-
The DX Connexion Series Fire Alarm Control
Panels have two power-limited and supervised
sounder circuits, identified as sounder circuits
S1 and S2.
-
Each circuit has a maximum rating of 1 Amp.
-
Each sounder output is monitored for open and
short circuits. An end-of-line (EOL) resistor
(6.8KOhms, 0.5W minimum, P/N 170-073-682)
must be fitted to the last sounder on the circuit.
-
Each sounder should have an integral blocking
diode that prevents the sounder from
consuming any power in normal monitoring
conditions. Monitoring uses reversed polarity.
When the sounder circuit is energised the
polarity of the sounder output is returned to
normal, allowing the sounder to turn on.
-
Figure 15 - Sounder Circuit Connections
Any other devices connected to sounder
outputs must be suppressed and polarized.
Figure 16 - Sounder Wiring
DO NOT loop the wiring under any terminals. Break the wire run to maintain
supervision.
-
Cable runs in excess of 1km (3200’) are not recommended. Otherwise, the capacitance and inductance
of the cable may affect the performance of the system.
-
Always check that conductors of appropriate diameter are used so that the voltage at all sounders is
within the manufacturers’ specification when the panel is operating under AC Mains failure and minimum
battery voltage conditions (Refer to Appendix 1 Specification for minimum panel output voltage).

-
The above diagram and instructions are correct
for ZXr-A and ZXr-P Repeaters. (Do not relegend the ABAB terminals in these repeaters
with the label supplied). Also the EOL resistors
can be configured through correct jumper
settings on these repeaters – rather than using
the physical EOL resistor arrangement shown
above.
Cable Screen - Earth Connections
-
During installation of the peripheral link, the consequences of connecting remote grounds together
must be considered.
-
When wiring between RS485 circuits and/or peripherals if a drain earth wire is available it should not
be bonded to the chassis at both ends of the link.
-
The drain earth wire should only be bonded to one of the panel chasses. The other end should not be
bonded directly to the chassis but should be connected through a non-polarised 2.2μFcapacitor.
This is shown below.

Recommended Procedure for the Separation and Re-assembly of Keyswitch
To prevent inncorrect re-assebly of the keyswitch it is important that the procedure outlined below
is followed:
1. Before separating the keyswitch and prior to fitting the locking mechanism part to the front door,
make sure the keyswitch is in the UNLOCKED position, i.e. it cannot be turned anti-clockwise.
Also make sure that the keyswitch is orientated such that the the flat areas of the threaded part
of the key are on the sides (and not top and bottom) and the green wire is uppermost. The arrow
head on the front of the keyswitch should now be pointing up as shown below:
Keyswitch in correct position
(key can be withdrawn)
Keyswitch in incorrect position
(key cannot be withdrawn)
2. The keyswitch MUST be in the vertical position in order for these instructions to work successfully. With the keyswitch in the vertical position, firmly disengage (separate) the plastic part from
the metal, locking mechanism.
3. Remove the nut from the threaded part (locking mechanism) and, with the keyswitch correctly
orientated, insert the threaded part through the keyed hole in the door. Replace the nut and
tighten using the supplied tool.

4. The keyswitch has a square drive that engages the bezel assembly - if this has moved make sure
that it engages correctly and in the right orientation by using a small screwdriver to carefully
rotate the mechanism fully clockwise.
Correct orientation
Incorrect orientation
5. Re-assemble the two parts of the keyswitch and check that the keyswitch ‘clicks’ when the key is
rotated in a clockwise direction. If it does not, separate the keyswitch parts and repeat from step 4.

Programming
5.1 Introduction
-
The basic operation and configuration parameters of the DX Connexion Series fire alarm control
panels can be very easily programmed using the fastrack procedure which is presented to the user
on powering up the panel for the first time. Refer to Section 5.2 Fastrack Panel Configuration for
more details.
-
Alternatively, panels can be programmed manually, refer to Section 5.3 Programming Manually,
or programmed using the DX Connexion PC Configuration Tool.
5.1.1 Site Configuration Changes
-
The entire site-specific configuration programming parameters, history log and other information is
stored in non-volatile memory. When changing any of these site parameters the user is prompted,
via the LCD, to unlock the memory before any changes can be made. Exiting the Commissioning
menu saves any changes and re-locks the memory. Editing and saving configuration changes is
controlled in software and, therefore, no hardware jumper links are involved in carrying out this
procedure.
5.1.2 Updating Software
-
The operating software for both the panel and the loop protocol driver are held in flash memory. The
panel and/or configuration software can be updated using a PC and a suitable comms lead - either
the existing MIAS communications lead (PN: 795-080) or the Isolated USB to Serial Adapter Kit
lead (PN: 020-891) may be used for this purpose. Refer to Section 5.4 Programming Using the
PC Configuration Tool or Appendix 5 How to Flash Upgrade the Panel.
-
Further information may be provided with any software upgrade kit.
-
The jumper link, J1, located on the Base PCB, enables or disables the Flash Upgrade function. The
jumper link must only be moved when the panel is powered down. The JI ENABLE and
DISABLE jumper positions are shown to the right of the main illustration below:

5.1.3 Text Entry
-
Throughout the programming procedure there are many instances where text entry is required, e.g. a
description of each zone location or to describe the location of each loop device, etc. Such text may be
entered manually, using the panel’s pushbuttons, or via the DX Connexion PC Configuration Tool.
-
When programming manually the method of entering text is identical wherever it is required and is
described overleaf.
5.1.3.1

-
The existing text string, if any, is shown at the left-hand side of the fourth line down and between the
square brackets. A flashing cursor ( | ) shows the position of any new character entry; on entry to this
screen the cursor is always placed at the first character position.
-
Press the
and
keys to move the cursor to a particular character in the string. If editing existing
text the character to the left of the cursor is deleted if the
key is pressed. If a new character is
inserted, it is placed to the right of the cursor - after a brief pause the cursor moves one place to the
right. A new character may now be inserted.
-
Use the alphanumeric keypad, as described above, to enter the required text.
-
The DX Connexion Series panels have a library of 32 commonly-used words, listed in alphabetical
order. Ten additional, site-specific words may be added to this library.
-
To access the word library, press the

5.2 Fastrack Panel Configuration
-
The DX Connexion Series of fire alarm control panels are provided with a built-in, fastrack configuration
utility that is simple to use and quickly enables the provision of basic fire cover. The Fastrack process
enables the basic configuration parameters to be programmed using a simple, step-by-step approach.
-
The fastrack process has up to five steps; covering setting of the panel language, time and date,
loop protocol (when optional) and the auto-configuration of all the devices, loop by loop.
-
It is possible to program as much or as little as is required when carrying out this procedure. Press
the
key to confirm and move on to the next step. Press the
key to cancel or return to a
previous step in the process. Some steps may be deferred, such as setting the date and time,
although it is recommended that these steps are addressed, when prompted, as these are very
quick to carry out.
-
When the panel is powered up the LCD displays the first configuration prompt. The user is then
guided through the fastrack process until finished; the whole procedure takes only a few minutes.
-
Throughout this process the internal buzzer activates intermittently, but this may be muted, and the
SYSTEM FAULT and FAULT LEDs are illuminated; the LEDs are extinguished upon completion.
The intermittent internal buzzer is also silenced, if this was not muted.
Step 1
Language
-
First, the LCD displays the language selection screen, as shown below; English language is the
default selection - the check mark (tick) is positioned to the right to indicate the current setting.
-
To select the desired language press the
and then press the
Step 2
key to select the highlighted option or move the cursor
key to select the alternative option.
Set Clock
-
Having set the language of the panel the user is now prompted to set the current time and date. The
cursor is placed at the first value to be edited. Enter the time, one value at a time - the cursor moves
to the next value to be edited automatically until all values have been entered. Use the
key to
backspace the cursor should any corrections need to be made.
-
Press the
Step 3
key to confirm the changes.
Setting the Loop Protocol
-
This step is not presented for all markets. If this option appears select the appropriate loop protocol.

Step 4 Learn Loop(s)
-
With the loop protocol set (where this step is required) the loop devices can now be configured using
auto-learn, one loop at a time. If the panel has more than one loop of devices the total devices
configured for each loop is listed before the auto-learn process can continue to the next loop, thereby,
allowing the user to go back to the previous step, if desired.
-
If option ‘1: Learn loops’ is selected a summary of all device types found is displayed upon completion of each auto-learn operation.
-
When finished editing, press the

key and the fastrack-method commission is complete.
Further device editing can be done via the user menus.
-
If the ‘Skip Learn’ option is selected, then none of the loops are configured; each loop total will show
that no devices exist. However, these devices can be learnt through the commission menus later or
uploaded to the panel from the PC Configuration Tool.
Step 5 Fastrack Setup Complete
-
When all loops are configured, or the ‘Skip learn’ option was selected, the following screen message
is displayed momentarily:
-
This is followed by the status normal screen.
-
The internal buzzer is silenced and the FAULT and SYSTEM FAULT LEDs extinguish.

5.3.1 Selecting the Commission Option
-
Firstly, select Level 2 Menu functions (refer to the User Manual for further information). The LCD
then displays the Level 2 User Menu. The level 2 user menu, whether entry is by passcode or
keyswitch (if this is fitted and configured for this purpose), presents the same user options. The
menu header, located in the square brackets at the top-left corner of the LCD, indicates the method
of entry to access this menu; default passcode (U0) or keyswitch (U9). The menu shown below
indicates that the default passcode was used.
-
If entering the access Level 3 passcode at the prompt the ‘service level’ menu (S1) is displayed
instead:
-
To select the Commission mode functions, press ‘7’. If this is done at user access Level 2, the
display will then prompt for entry of the access Level 3 passcode.
Note: If the Level 3 passcode is used to confirm entry to the Level 2 Menu options, the panel is
already in Level 3 access mode and, therefore, will not prompt for entry of the Level 3 passcode
when the Commission option is selected.
-
Enter the Level 3 passcode and press
to confirm. The LCD prompts the user to unlock the
memory.
-
Press
again to unlock the memory. The Commission Menu options are displayed as follows:

the input is activated, the output pattern will be qualified according to the zone and the appropriate
outputs will be activated (see Table 15 for the input actions that will process the pattern logic).
5.3.6.3
Disablement Group
-
The input can be assigned to one of two disablement groups (or to both disablement groups). The
input will then be disabled when the disablement group is disabled.
-
The inputs can be configured to perform, when activated, a Disable Group function. One of two (but
not both) Disable Groups may be assigned to the input action. Pattern logic supports any input
actions assigned to one of these Disable Groups.
Note: An input cannot be configured to disable a Group to which it belongs. If an input, either from
a loop device or a panel control, disables a Group, re-enabling this group is not permitted via
the panel menus. A warning message is displayed if either case is attempted.

Pattern Assignment
-
Each output can be assigned to turn on in accordance with a set of rules (Logic) depending on where
a fire or plant warning condition occurs (refer to Section 5.3.9.1 Output Patterns for details of
pattern programming). Up to 40 patterns (patterns 1 – 40) can be programmed in the panel. Each
output is then assigned to one of these patterns.
-
Pattern ‘1’ is the default pattern assigned to all outputs.
-
Pattern ‘0’ is the default pattern (does not respond to pattern zone logic) assigned to Function LEDs
1 and 2.
-
Press the

Panel State Inputs
-
Specific Panel State conditions can be used as an input to the Output Pattern Logic. This permits
specific conditions to turn on outputs. Special care must be taken when using this option.
-
The general use of this function is to turn on one or more outputs when a specific panel condition
occurs. For example, it is possible to turn on/ off an output when the panel is silenced/ resounded or
to turn on an output when a day mode program is active. See Table 11 - Panel State Conditions.
Use a specific pattern for these options, i.e. pattern 40. Assign to one of the high-numbered
zones, e.g. 79, and ensure that all other patterns have this zone set to OFF. Assign the
required output to use this pattern.
Ensure that the output is configured not to respond to EVACUATE and SILENCE actions.

5.3.10.2
Verification Mode
-
Alarm verification can be used to reduce false alarms by introducing a delay on a transient alarm
signal received from a smoke detector.
-
When an alarm is first received from a smoke detector the panel will start an internal timer and
attempt to ‘reset’ the detector. If the detector is still in alarm after the verification timer has expired
the control panel will go into alarm. If the detector is not in alarm at this point, the panel will enter a
‘Confirmation period’. Any alarm condition received during the confirmation period will then be deemed
a genuine fire alarm.
The alarm verification feature should not be used as a substitute for proper detector
location/applications or regular system maintenance. Alarm verification features are
intended to reduce the frequency of false alarms caused by transient conditions. They
are not intended to compensate for installation design errors or lack of maintenance.
Keep the verification delay to a minimum.

5.3.10.3
Sensitivity Mode
-
The sensitivity of both smoke and temperature detectors can be adjusted by changing the threshold
at which pre-alarm and fire alarm signals are generated. Increasing the threshold makes detectors
less sensitive to smoke/heat and decreasing the threshold makes them more sensitive.
-
It is possible to set threshold levels for each device for both the day period (sensitivity mode active
– i.e. occupied) and the night period (sensitivity mode inactive – i.e. unoccupied).
This facility is very flexible. It should only be used in certain specialized applications
and with great care. The default mode is for all detectors to default to the manufacturer’s
recommended alarm level.
Ensure that the system maintains safe fire alarm notification if thresholds are changed.

Recommended Cables
-
All cables connected to the fire alarm control panel must be fire resistant cables. Shielded cable must
be used for signalling loops and sounder circuits. The drain earth wire should be connected to a
suitable earth bonding point at both ends (loops) or single end (sounders) of the cable. Earthing points
are provided on the inside of the top face of the back box for this purpose. Keep the earth connections as short as possible.
Loop cable
-
A loop cable carries data, therefore, its selection is important. Note the following:
-
In countries where the European EMC directive is in force, only EMC Compliant cables are to be
used.
-
The loop cable usage must not exceed 1.5 km. This includes the cable used on main loop and
spur circuits.
-
Single pair cables must be used. It is NOT permissible to run mixed loops or outgoing and return
pairs in a multi-core cable due to inadequate separation and possible electrical interference
problems.
-
Each core of the loop cable must be a minimum 1.5mm2 cross sectional area.
-
The cable screen must be capable of being earth-linked through each system device – only one
end of each cable screen must be earthed.
-
Red is the preferred cover sheath for fire applications
-
The specified loop circuit cables are also suitable for wiring alarm, auxiliary relay and input/
output lines.
Mains supply cable
-
The mains supply cable must be a standard fire resisting type and should meet PH30 classification.

Quiescent Current – Refer to the manufacturers’ published data sheets for the supply current required by each device installed on the
loop in normal mode. Calculate the total current required by all devices installed. Take into account the figures quoted for whether the
device LED flashes when the device is addressed.
Alarm Current – Refer to the manufacturers’ published data sheets for the supply current required by each device installed on the
loop in alarm mode. Calculate the total current required by all devices installed. The panel will turn on the LED indicators of the first
four sensors that register an alarm. Refer to the manufacturers’ published data sheets for the LED current. Ensure the total alarm
current does not exceed the power output capability of the loop driver circuit – refer to the specifications section for this value.
Adjustment factors – The panel employs a voltage booster circuit to step the battery voltage up to the required loop voltage. This
results in losses and must be accounted for in the calculations. Multiply the calculated loop current by 1.5 to determine the current
drawn from the batteries.
2
Typical quiescent and alarm mode currents are quoted. Refer to the documentation supplied with the unit for the supply current
requirements in all operating modes and supply voltages. Ensure that the total load across each and all outputs does not exceed the
specified maximum. Refer to the specification section for these values.
3
Ensure that the total load across each and all outputs does not exceed the specified maximum. Refer to the specification section for
these values.
4
Ensure that the total panel load does not exceed the specified maximum. Refer to the specification section for these values.
5
The sum of the overall panel quiescent and alarm figures should be multiplied by a de-rating factor of 1.25. This is to take into account
aging of the batteries.

Appendix 5 How to Flash Upgrade the Panel
1.1 General
-
The user may change the panel operating software using a PC and an appropriate version of the
panel software (Flash upgrade file in ‘hex’ format).
-
Perform the following four main steps to ensure the successful Flash upgrade of the panel software:
1 PC back-up of all configuration data.
2 Flash upgrade procedure
3 Wipe the panel configuration settings
4 Download existing site configuration file from PC.
Step 1
-
Before performing this procedure it is strongly recommended that a backup of the current panel
configuration is downloaded to the PC, using the latest version of the PC Configuration Tool (available
from Technical Support or your fire panel equipment supplier).
-
Connect the lead between the panel, using the PC Tool connector, and PC. If using the Isolated USB
to Serial Adapter Kit lead (PN: 020-891) for connection between the panel and the PC, refer to the
user documentation supplied with it. Alternatively, use the MIAS communications lead (PN: 795080) to communicate with the PC. Refer to Section 5.4 Programming Using the PC Configuration
Tool for further details on how to do this.
-
Refer to the user documentation supplied with the PC Configuration Tool for more details on operating
the PC configuration tool program.

Appendix 7 Peer-to Peer Network Configuration
1
Introduction
-
The DX Connexion Series of fire alarm control panels can form part of a fire alarm detection and
system status indication network. Two network configuration options are available: loop or linear.
Loop Configuration: each panel communicates independently with its immediate neighbours
using a closed-loop topology. The design of this network meets the requirements of EN54-2 to
provide single-fault tolerance, so that in the event of a cable fault communication over the entire
network is still maintained.
Linear: each panel communicates independently with its immediate neighbours. However, this
topology, being an open-loop configuration, cannot fulfill the requirements of EN54-2 for singlefault tolerance.
-
During the network set-up each panel requires the entry of key information such as the type of
network to be implemented (see above), its identity on the network (panel ID and name). Also, a
network map needs to be created at each panel which lists all the other (remote) panels.

Procedure
-
Each panel has to be individually configured. The network set-up option is one of the General
Options of the Commission menu (user access Level 3).
-
With the panel at access Level 3 select ‘7: Commission (L3)’ option. Press the
key to unlock the
memory. The Commission menu is displayed with the ‘General Options’ option highlighted. Press
the

-
To enter a panel ID (in the range 1 to 99) either use the numeric pushbuttons to enter the address or
/
keys - the first press of either key will enter an ID of ‘0’ (not on network) which increments/
the
decrements with each press of the
/
keys. Press the
pushbutton to confirm the panel’s ID
number entry. The Network Options menu is displayed once more.
-
The panel can also have an alphanumeric network identity (optional). To enter an alphanumeric
identity select option ‘2: Panel Text’. Identity names of up to 20 characters may be entered.

In the example below the ‘Word List’ text entry option was used to give the panel the name ‘CEILING
VOID’.

pushbutton.The ‘Panel ID’ and ‘Panel Text’ options are displayed once more. Use
these options to add every networked panel that this panel should know about. If any panels on the
network are not included in this list this panel will not indicate any alarm of fault conditions related to
those panels or respond to any control actions.
-
When every panel on the network has been added, press the
panels; the local panel, of course, is not included in this list.
-
To remove a panel from this list, simply change its ID to ‘0’. In this case, the local panel is no longer
able to respond to alarm or fault events originating from that remote panel.
