INTRODUCTION
The StarLink™ Dual-Path Commercial / Residential Fire and
Burglary alarm capture radio IP communicators are fully
supervised, wireless digital two-way subscriber units. All
models are compatible with most 12/24VDC alarm control
panels (always adhere to the documentation provided by
the control panel manufacturer). All can function as a
backup to existing telephone lines, or as sole path primary
communicators. In backup mode, all units will automatically switch the communication channel from the telephone
line to the network when telephone line trouble is detected.
See WI2140 for programming information.
For Commercial Burglary installations, under the
armed condition, any loss of communication must be
treated as a Burglary Alarm at the central station.

StarLink™ SLE Commercial Series Dual-Path Alarm Communicators -- Installation Instructions
at the bottom of the StarLink radio PC board, the 17 terminals are described as follows:
TB1: PWR Note: Rated 10-25VDC input.
(Refer to section "STEP 4: APPLY POWER")
TB2: PWR GND (–)
(Refer to section "STEP 4: APPLY POWER")
TB3: PGM1 (–): Open collector output. PGM1 is normally on (active low). When it is triggered (for example, a trouble is detected) it becomes open collector/high. To have a zone dedicated to an StarLink radio trouble, insert one side of the end of line
resistor into this PGM1 terminal, and wire the other
side of the resistor to the positive terminal of the
zone.
TB4: PGM2 (–): Open collector output. This output is
defaulted as "Fail to Communicate", and is normally
open collector/high. When a report fails to communicate anywhere in the communications path, the
output is active low.
TB5: PGM3 (–): Open collector output. This output is
defaulted as "Telephone Line Cut". When the telephone line voltage is correct, the output is open collector/high; when the telephone line voltage is too
low, the output is active low.
TB6: IN 1: Active high input for wiring to the panel
bell output. When this input detects a pulsing temporal 3 high, it sends a Fire alarm; a pulsing temporal 4 (CO Alarm), a CO alarm is sent. When
used, these conductors must be run in conduit (max
20 feet for Commercial Fire, and 3 feet for Residential Fire). Do not use for Burglary applications.
TB7: IN 2: See TB9, below.
TB8: GND: Common ground terminal.
TB9: IN 3: Both inputs IN 2 and IN 3 can be supervised end-of-line resistor inputs that can be triggered with N/O or N/C relay contacts. Wire the

information.
TIP: See TB11, below.
RING: Terminals TIP and RING: When used for
backup reporting, the house Tip and Ring telephone
wires must be routed from the outside to these terminals. Under normal back up conditions, these
terminals are internally wired to the PANEL TIP and
PANEL RING terminals, allowing all transmissions
to the central station to be monitored. These wires
are monitored for voltage such that if voltage falls
below 1.5V, a Telco Line Fault trouble is detected,
and the StarLink radio applies telephone line voltage to the control panel Tip and Ring DACT interconnect to the radio allowing it to receive and transmit any alarms sent by the panel.

SUPPLYING POWER
Control panels can provide power through their Auxiliary
Power terminals if the available standby current is reduced
by the SLE standby power (refer to Electrical Ratings for
+12V / 24V For Models without Power Supply on page 2).
When there is insufficient standby current due to the application (such as when 24-hour standby time is required for
Fire or CO), the SLE-ULPS-R Charger Module accessory
must be used to charge an additional battery and to supply
the power for the StarLink radio. See WI2131.
Note: The cable modem/router and switch (if any) at the
premises requires standby power, therefore a UL 1481
Listed UPS must be used at the premises to power these
devices for 24 hours (unless an engine driven generator is
provided on the premises, then only 4 hours of UPS backup
are required).

Refer to WI2140 for selecting the required handshake /
kissoff frequency in the NOC (www.NapcoNOC.com) setup
screens (as required by the control panel).
PRIMARY AND BACK-UP REPORTING
The StarLink radio can function as a primary wireless IP
communicator, in cases where there are no telephone
lines present, when connected directly to the control panel
Telco terminals. For primary reporting, do NOT install
jumper 3 in terminal block "X5". The StarLink radio can
also function as a backup to the existing telephone lines
(install jumper 3 in terminal block "X5"). When used as a
backup communicator and when it senses telephone line
trouble, the StarLink radio automatically switches the communication channel from the telephone line to the cell network.
NETWORK COVERAGE
The StarLink radio constantly supervises the cell network
coverage. When the StarLink radio is configured for primary reporting, and the StarLink radio detects a loss in
network coverage, the StarLink radio must be configured
to prompt the control panel to announce a Telco Line Cut
failure trouble using the Management Center screen
(located at www.NapcoNoc.com). Note: This Telco Line
Cut failure trouble will NOT activate when the StarLink
radio is configured for backup reporting.
INSTALLATION STEPS
STEP 1: ACCOUNT REGISTRATION
Create a new account and register specific StarLink radio
modules at www.NapcoComNet.com. Accounts and modules registered via the Internet are enabled for activation
within 24 hours.
STEP 2: SELECT A MOUNTING LOCATION
The mounting location should be indoors within the protected area and selected based on RF performance. It is
HIGHLY recommended that the installer carefully adhere to
the following recommendations BEFORE any wires are
installed.
 Generally, high locations are best. DO NOT mount radio in basements or below grade as unpredictable performance may result.
 DO NOT mount the radio in non-climate controlled environments (i.e. attics may become extremely hot in summer, garages may become extremely cold in winter).
 Avoid mounting locations within 3 feet of AC power
lines, fluorescent light fixtures, or large metal objects (air
conditioners, metal garage doors, etc.) as these locations have been shown to have a detrimental effect on
signal strength.
 A fair amount of care may be required to mount the
StarLink radio so as to achieve an optimal RF path. The
installer should spend as much time as needed to obtain
the highest signal level possible.
 For Commercial Burglary installations, install in accordance with UL 681, Standard for Installation and Classification of Burglary and Holdup Alarm Systems. Installation shall also be in accordance with UL 827, Standard
for Central-Station Alarm Services, and UL 1641, Standard for Installation and Classification of Residential Burglar Alarm Systems
a. Before applying power, be sure to connect the
antenna. Temporarily connect power to the
StarLink radio from a fully charged 12V (4AH minimum) battery. DO NOT mount the radio at this
StarLink™ SLE Commercial Series Dual-Path Alarm Communicators -- Installation Instructions
5
time. Press Tamper switch to send a signal.
b. Position the unit in the desired mounting location,
with antenna oriented vertically. The signal strength
is displayed by the Green "Signal Strength LED"
labeled "D3" (located at the lower right corner of the
PC board). The GSM radio tower signal strength
may fluctuate from day to day, therefore it is best to
try to find a mounting location where the LED provides a minimum of 4 blinks.
c. Once a location has been selected based on signal
coverage, permanently secure the unit using #8
screws (not supplied) in the two mounting holes.

device and nearby persons. Use ONLY the existing antenna supplied by radio to comply with this warning
(Exception: The SLE-ANTEXT extended antenna with
15 feet of cable).
STEP 3: WIRING (PRIMARY AND BACKUP MODES)
22-gauge wire may be used if mounted up to 50 feet from
the control panel, and 18-gauge wire should be used for up
to 100 feet. Reference the wiring diagrams further in this
manual. See the section CONTROL PANEL PROGRAMMING further in this manual.
For Primary Mode:
Remove jumper #3 in jumper block labeled "X5". The wiring between the control panel and the StarLink radio is

a. Without applying power (voltage), connect to
screw terminals TB1 (+12 or 12/24V) and TB2 (–).
If the control panel Aux. Output cannot supply the
necessary current, then you must use the SLEULPS-R Power Supply accessory with additional
battery (see WI2131). For wiring connections, see
the wiring diagrams further in this manual.
b. Referencing the correct wiring diagram for the appropriate control panel (wiring diagrams are located further in this manual), connect the "TELCO"
control panel terminals TIP and RING (DACT interconnect wiring to the radio). Do NOT connect the
StarLink radio terminals TB10-13 to house telephone lines (RJ31X modular plug wires, etc.).
Wiring Methods
 Strip wire carefully to avoid exposed conductors after
installation, etc.
 Use UL Listed wire, ensuring that all conductors are to
be insulated for the maximum voltage of any conductor
in the enclosure
 All wiring methods must be performed in accordance
with NFPA 70, Articles 725, and 800
A "Point ID" (also called "Contact ID") receiver format programming example is shown:
The radio can transmit to any central station capable of
receiving SIA Contact ID via DACR technology or the
DSC Sur-Gard Model System II via TCP/IP.
Note: A receiver reporting format must be entered for
each telephone number used, but each telephone number
may be assigned a different format.
CAUTION: The installer should always be certain an
area code is programmed into the control panel.
Optional: If you wish the StarLink radio to report a
code and zone number (Contact ID by default) to the central
station in response to a triggered input event, see the table
on the previous page.
Note: These event codes and zone numbers can be
changed from the Management Center screen (located at
www.napconoc.com).
Upon alarm, the NOC can optionally send an SMS message
to a third party that includes the appropriate Contact ID
alarm code, including the zone or user number, if applicable. The "STARLINK RADIO RELATED EVENT REPORT
CODES" table also includes the most common Contact ID
alarm codes.
Programming StarLink Radio Troubles
It is required that if a StarLink radio or control panel trouble
is detected, that it is reported to the central station.
When the StarLink radio detects and sends a trouble to the
control panel, the control panel must be programmed to
annunciate this trouble. The radio can detect multiple troubles as indicated by the "Red Trouble LED" ("D5"). For
these troubles to be annunciated at the panel, there are
several methods, some of them are configurable at the
STEP 4: APPLY POWER
 Attach antenna before applying power !
 Apply 12/24VDC to terminals 1 and 2. (For models
without the charger board SLE-ULPS-R). For models
with the SLE-ULPS-R, apply power to the unit.
STEP 5: SIGNAL VERIFICATION
 Verify Online: To verify that the signals have been
received by the StarLink radio GSM Network online, go
to www.napconoc.com, log in with your Username and
Password, enter your Company ID number and the
StarLink GSM Radio Number, then click Signal Log.
IMPORTANT: Verify that the signals transmitted by
the StarLink radio have been properly received by your
central station before leaving the premises.

NAPCO CONTROL PANEL PROGRAMMING
To program the central station receiver reporting format,
use PCD-Windows Quickloader download software.
Open the Digital Communications screen, Central Station
Receivers tab, as shown in the following image:
Red and White Metal Housing Dimensions (inches)
StarLink™ SLE Commercial Series Dual-Path Alarm Communicators -- Installation Instructions
7
Management Center screen (www.napconoc.com):
Wire the radio PGM1 output to a dedicated control panel
zone (input) to annunciate the trouble (activate a trouble
sounder) when an open is detected. The radio must also
report this trouble to the central station. With Napco control panels, program a dedicated zone for Day Zone, Mini
-sounder on Alarm and No bell on Alarm. Wire the zone
as indicated in the wiring diagrams further in this manual.
For models with the SLE-ULPS-R Power Supply, wire
this Power Supply trouble output relay to the two terminals of the control panel zone dedicated to the trouble.
With the GEMC Commercial Fire control panels, use the
dry contacts of the Power Supply relay by removing the
jumper and using the contacts of the Power Supply relay
(Common and N/O) in series with a 2.2k EOLR.
For radio models without the SLE-ULPS-R Power Supply (powered by the control panel Aux Power terminals),
wire the radio directly to the PGM1 output of the control
panel (program the radio to report all troubles on PGM1).
Alternatively, you can use the GEMC-F8ZCPIM module
to detect a trouble on the zone by use of a PGM output of
the radio. See special wiring instructions for use of the
GEMC-F8ZCPIM zones.
You can also wire to the positive terminal of the dedicated zone on a GEMC-EZM8. Thus when a radio trouble is
detected, the radio PGM activates the control panel zone,
and the panel generates a trouble that is sent to the central station.
All installations also require wiring an output from the
control panel, as follows: With Gemini C-Series (GEMC)
control panels, we recommend using the Fire Aux Relay.
Program the Fire Aux Relay to activate as a trouble relay.
Wire this zone to the StarLink module IN2 terminal.
Note: We recommend using the text " GSM Trouble"
as the Zone Description.
StarLink Radio Supervision
If the two Telco wires (DACT interconnect wiring to the radio) between the StarLink radio and the control panel are
cut or otherwise disconnected, the control panel must detect and generate a local trouble indication. The control
8
panel must trigger an output to activate the StarLink radio to
report this line cut fault to the central station. Program the
control panel for telephone supervision. Program the StarLink radio using the Management Center "Advanced Features" screen (at www.napconoc.com) to enable the Line
Cut feature on all troubles (therefore a dedicated zone is
not required). Note: Some control panels may require a
different duration than the default time of 3 minutes. See
also the alternate supervision method described on page
14, "Alternate Telco Line to Alarm Panel Supervision
(For Primary Mode Only)".
Supervision Time Schedule Considerations
If a status change (alarm trouble, etc.) is transmitted, the
radio supervision timer is restarted.
For example, if a status change is sent, the next regular
supervision transmission will occur at the interval determined by your rate plan.
Configuration Download / Firmware Updates
Technician on site required.
For Commercial Installations a technician is required to be
on site during any reprogramming of the radio or control
panel and must perform / re-perform acceptance testing.
To perform a download or update the radio firmware, jumper 1 must be removed. UL requires that the jumper be replaced after the download is complete. Failure to replace
the jumper would allow downloads to the radio without
a technician on-site.
For Residential installations jumper 1 may be removed to
permit uploading and downloading without a technician on
site, however, the dealer is responsible for ensuring the
system is operating correctly after any downloads or changes to the system.
Cover Tamper
The SLE series radios in the metal housings may optionally
have front and rear tamper switches installed (GEMTamperkit) and wired to the control panel (see page 15).
Note: The tamper switch on the radio PC board is not
used in this housing (but continues to function if pressed).

Do not use when radio is configured for backup. A 10K ohm resistor (5% tolerance) can be placed across the
"house side" of the telephone line circuit (see wiring diagrams). Use this resistor instead of using a relay on
the alarm control panel to trip an input on the radio to supervise the connection between the alarm control
panel telco circuit and the radio. Note: In installations where two telco lines are used, a 22K ohm resistor (5%
tolerance) is required for each telco line (see wiring diagrams).
REMEMBER: Enable the feature " Tip / Ring Wiring Fault Report" in the NOC (www.NapcoComNet.com)
to supervise the telephone line connection to the control panel.
REMINDER: Never use this option when the alarm control panel is connected to telephone service!

NAPCO LIMITED WARRANTY
NAPCO SECURITY SYSTEMS, INC. (NAPCO) warrants its products to be
free from manufacturing defects in materials and workmanship for 36
months following the date of manufacture. NAPCO will, within said period,
at its option, repair or replace any product failing to operate correctly
without charge to the original purchaser or user.
This warranty shall not apply to any equipment, or any part thereof, which
has been repaired by others, improperly installed, improperly used, abused,
altered, damaged, subjected to acts of God, or on which any serial numbers
have been altered, defaced or removed. Seller will not be responsible for
any dismantling or reinstallation charges.
THERE ARE NO WARRANTIES, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, WHICH
EXTEND BEYOND THE DESCRIPTION ON THE FACE HEREOF. THERE
IS NO EXPRESS OR IMPLIED WARRANTY OF MERCHANTABILITY OR
A WARRANTY OF FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
ADDITIONALLY, THIS WARRANTY IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER
OBLIGATIONS OR LIABILITIES ON THE PART OF NAPCO.
Any action for breach of warranty, including but not limited to any implied
warranty of merchantability, must be brought within the six months following
the end of the warranty period. IN NO CASE SHALL NAPCO BE LIABLE
TO ANYONE FOR ANY CONSEQUENTIAL OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES
FOR BREACH OF THIS OR ANY OTHER WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR
IMPLIED, EVEN IF THE LOSS OR DAMAGE IS CAUSED BY THE
SELLER'S OWN NEGLIGENCE OR FAULT.
In case of defect, contact the security professional who installed and
maintains your security system. In order to exercise the warranty, the
product must be returned by the security professional, shipping costs
prepaid and insured to NAPCO. After repair or replacement, NAPCO
assumes the cost of returning products under warranty. NAPCO shall have
no obligation under this warranty, or otherwise, if the product has been
repaired by others, improperly installed, improperly used, abused, altered,
damaged, subjected to accident, nuisance, flood, fire or acts of God, or on
which any serial numbers have been altered, defaced or removed. NAPCO
will not be responsible for any dismantling, reassembly or reinstallation
charges.
This warranty contains the entire warranty. It is the sole warranty and any
prior agreements or representations, whether oral or written, are either
merged herein or are expressly cancelled. NAPCO neither assumes, nor
authorizes any other person purporting to act on its behalf to modify, to
change, or to assume for it, any other warranty or liability concerning its
products.
In no event shall NAPCO be liable for an amount in excess of NAPCO's
original selling price of the product, for any loss or damage, whether direct,
indirect, incidental, consequential, or otherwise arising out of any failure of
the product. Seller's warranty, as hereinabove set forth, shall not be
enlarged, diminished or affected by and no obligation or liability shall arise
or grow out of Seller's rendering of technical advice or service in connection
with Buyer's order of the goods furnished hereunder.
NAPCO RECOMMENDS THAT THE ENTIRE SYSTEM BE COMPLETELY
TESTED WEEKLY.
Warning: Despite frequent testing, and due to, but not limited to, any or all
of the following; criminal tampering, electrical or communications disruption,
it is possible for the system to fail to perform as expected. NAPCO does not
represent that the product/system may not be compromised or
circumvented; or that the product or system will prevent any personal injury
or property loss by burglary, robbery, fire or otherwise; nor that the product
or system will in all cases provide adequate warning or protection. A
properly installed and maintained alarm may only reduce risk of burglary,
robbery, fire or otherwise but it is not insurance or a guarantee that these
events will not occur. CONSEQUENTLY, SELLER SHALL HAVE NO
LIABILITY FOR ANY PERSONAL INJURY, PROPERTY DAMAGE, OR
OTHER LOSS BASED ON A CLAIM THE PRODUCT FAILED TO GIVE
WARNING. Therefore, the installer should in turn advise the consumer to
take any and all precautions for his or her safety including, but not limited
to, fleeing the premises and calling police or fire department, in order to
mitigate the possibilities of harm and/or damage.
NAPCO is not an insurer of either the property or safety of the user's family
or employees, and limits its liability for any loss or damage including
incidental or consequential damages to NAPCO's original selling price of
the product regardless of the cause of such loss or damage.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts
or do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential
damages, or differentiate in their treatment of limitations of liability for
ordinary or gross negligence, so the above limitations or exclusions may
not apply to you. This Warranty gives you specific legal rights and you may
also have other rights which vary from state to state.
NOTE: This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B Unintentional Radiator, pursuant to Part
15 of the FCC Rules. These limits are designed to provide reasonable protection against harmful interference in a residential installation.
This equipment generates, uses, and can radiate radio frequency energy and, if not installed and used in accordance with the Instruction
Manual, may cause harmful interference to radio communications. However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a
particular installation. If this equipment does cause harmful interference to radio or television reception, which can be determined by turning
the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one of more of the following measures: 1. Reorient or
relocate the receiving antenna; 2. Increase the separation between the equipment and receiver; 3. Connect the equipment into an outlet on
a circuit different from that to which the receiver is connected; 4. Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
