ADEMCO 5817CB
WIRELESS COMMERCIAL/
HOUSEHOLD TRANSMITTER
INSTALLATION AND SETUP GUIDE
GENERAL INFORMATION
The 5817CB is a universal contact-monitoring transmitter that can be used with household and
commercial fire and burglary-initiating devices such as door/window contacts, motion and glassbreak
detectors, sprinkler water flow switches, tamper switches, post indicator valves, manual pull stations,
and remote duct detectors. Upon activation, it emits an RF signal to a control panel that sends a burglary
or fire alarm to a central station. The 5817CB has three unique input loops (zones). The first loop
(primary loop) is supervised and typically used for high-priority alarm reporting such as commercial fire
or burglary. It requires a 470K ohm end-of-line resistor to be placed across the sensor. The second loop is
the built-in, normally closed reed switch (used in conjunction with a magnet, as described below). The
third loop is another normally closed household burglary loop. All three loops may be used. A fourth
(automatically enrolled) loop contains two tamper switches to protect the 5817CB transmitter. A built-in
cover tamper switch is activated when the cover is removed. A unit tamper switch is activated if the unit
is separated from its mounting plate.
PROGRAMMING
The 5817CB has its own unique serial number permanently assigned during manufacture. You must
"enroll" this transmitter serial number in the control panel at some point prior to its usage in the alarm
system. Refer to the control panel's installation instructions for specific programming procedure. Note:
During programming of the control panel, program the 5817CB transmitter as Input Type "RF"
(i.e., supervised RF) (mandatory for UL installations).

The 5817CB is supplied with a tamper switch hold-down (in the plastic parts bag) for use when the wall
mounting plate is not needed. For proper orientation of the unit in relation to its wall mounting plate and
the loop wiring, read all of this section before installing the unit. Signal strength may vary from location
to location. Before mounting the transmitter permanently, , conduct Go/No Go tests (see control's
instructions) to verify adequate signal strength from this location. When a satisfactory location is found,
make note of the position of the unit on the wall, remove the battery and proceed with installation.
The following mounting instructions assume that the unit will be mounted as shown in the Figures. The
unit may, however, be installed in any direction, as long as the relationship of the unit to its mounting
plate or tamper switch hold-down or tamper switch hold-down (if used), is maintained.
The 5817CB is supplied with a tamper switch hold-down tab (connected to the mounting plate as shown in
Figure 1), for use when the wall mounting plate is not needed. Remove the tab with diagonal cutting
pliers.
The mounting plate, installed as described below, enables easy removal of the unit for servicing.
1. Remove the transmitter's cover by inserting the flat blade of a small screwdriver into the pry-off
slot at the bottom end of the unit on the right side closest to the cover's decorative ribs and twisting.
2. Disengage the supplied mounting plate from the unit by inserting the blade of a small
screwdriver into the mounting plate release hole (see Figure 3) and pushing the locking tab out (see
Figure 1). Slide the mounting plate downward along the case back. Note: For this application, the
alignment guide strip along one edge of the mounting plate serves no function and may be broken
away, if desired.
3. If concealed wiring is to be used, feed the wires through the concealed wiring entry hole at one
corner of the mounting plate (and/or case back). (Ssurface wiring is mentioned discussed in Step 5
below).
4. Install the mounting plate, with its case-holding posts pointing up, in the location selected, as
described in the control unit's installation instructions determined. Use the two flat head drywallflat-head screws supplied. Note: To ensure proper operation of the unit's back tamper (when it is
separated from the mounting plate), the screws must be anchored to a wall stud or other solid wood
material. If the mounting plate will not be used, make note of the location of the tamper switch
hold-down as shown in Fig. 1 for the proper placing of the hold-down tab in Fig. 2.
5. If surface wiring is to be used, remove the knockout slot in the case back (located across from loop
3 terminal block). Surface wiring should enter through this knocked out space provided. Do not
connect the wiring to the terminal block(s) yet.
6.
7.
Attach the case back to the mounting plate by sliding the keyhole slots in the case back down onto
the mounting plate's holding posts. The locking tab will click as the case back locks in place. To
disengage the unit from an installed mounting plate, insert a small screwdriver into the
mounting plate release hole, push down to retract the locking tab, and push upward on the unit to
disengage from posts. If not using the mounting plate, it is necessary to remove the PC board
from the case back. Slide a small flat bladed screwdriver between the case back and PC board near
the board hold-down clip and carefully pry the board out.
In the area that was previously marked for the location of the mounting plate, (step 4), install the
hold-down tab with a 5/8” flat head dry-wall screw. The tab must be aligned with the corresponding
slot in the case back as shown in Figure 2. The tab as well as the case back must be anchored to a
wall stud or other solid wood material.
8.
To reinstall the PC board into the case back, position the board onto the two retaining studs on one
side of the case back and snap the board into place. The hold-down tab must mate with the
corresponding cutout in the case back after case back is installed.
9.
Reverse the procedure of the first three steps to complete reassembly of the unit.
10. Set the DIP switch (after the control panel has enrolled the transmitter's input IDs) for the desired
primary loop characteristics, as described in the table below.

If using one of the panel revisions shown in the following table, and programming the 5817CB as an
Entry/Exit zone, you must enroll the tamper loop (loop 4) as a separate zone, programmed for 24hour response (e.g., Zone type 5  Trouble-by-day/Alarm-by-night).

WIRING CONNECTIONS
Connect the loop wiring to the unit's terminals before installing the battery (see Figure 3).
Notes:
a. Primary loop 1 is a supervised loop and must have an end-of-line (EOL) resistor (470K
ohms, supplied) placed across the last sensor. Additionally, for Primary loop 1, a contact
device may not be installed more than 20 feet from the transmitter.
b. If loop 2 is not going to be used, the magnet is not necessary.
c. If loop 3 is not going to be used, no connection is needed across its terminals. For UL
household burglary and fire installations, the loop 3 contact device (if used) may not be
more than 3 feet from the transmitter.
BATTERY INSTALLATION/REPLACEMENT
1. Remove the transmitter's cover as described in Mounting Step 1.
2. Observe correct polarity and insert the battery provided into the battery holder (see
Figure 3). Take care not to bend the antenna.
