ZNDC Installation and Operation Manual
2. Specifications
2.1
Electrical Specifications
All circuits are supervised and Power Limited.* Zeta Alarm Systems requires that the ZNDC be
mounted inside one of our UL listed enclosures, and be powered from an IPB-3 (Inline Power
Booster), Sigma Mk II or Classic 2000 Mk II continuous 24VDC output.
Power Requirements:
Voltage:
Current:
24VDC (22-28VDC)
Nominal
Max
56mA
76mA
Network: RS-485, 9600 baud (Sigma Mk II) or 19200 baud (Classic 2000 Mk II)
*Note: Phone lines are supervised but not power limited.
2.2
Wiring Specifications
2.2.1
Electrical Wiring
Please adhere to the following guidelines for wiring the ZNDC:
Recommended Wire Type: 14 – 22 AWG shielded, twisted-pair
Maximum Cable Length: 8000 ft. (@16 AWG) ***See Note***
Maximum Total Cable Resistance: 50Ω. ***See Note***
Maximum Cable Capacitance: 0.3µF. ***See Note***
Wiring should not cross or rest on the circuit board.
Note: The above cable length is actually the maximum length for the RS485 Network coming off the Classic 2000 Mk II or Sigma Mk II Control Panels, and thus would apply to the
ZNDC only if it is the last device on the network, and no other devices were attached.
The most important thing to remember when wiring a device is to make sure that the cable
does not exceed maximum capacitance and resistance. The levels of capacitance and
resistance can be affected by the gauge and the quality of the cable being used. Cable will
be specified by the manufacturer according to capacitance and resistance per foot. To
accurately figure cable length, divide the Maximum Capacitance by the cable’s Capacitance-Per-Foot. This will give you the maximum length of cable you can use before you
exceed the Maximum Capacitance. (Likewise with resistance.)
2.2.2
Telephone Wiring
Use 4-pair, straight through, standard telephone cabling. RJ45 connectors are supplied in the
installation kit. See section 3.5 for wiring diagram.
2.3
Environmental Specifications
To prevent water damage, please observe the following restrictions when mounting the ZNDC:
Do not mount directly on exterior walls, especially masonry walls, due to condensation.
Do not mount directly on exterior walls below grade due to condensation.
Indoor use only.

3.1 Mounting Requirements
Zeta Alarm Systems requires that the ZNDC be mounted inside one of our UL listed enclosures,
and be powered from an IPB-3 (Inline Power Booster), Sigma Mk II or Classic 2000 Mk II continuous 24VDC output. The ZNDC should be mounted using the supplied components. The four plastic standoffs snap into the ZNDC board, and the four screws are used to secure the standoffs to a
flat surface. The ZNDC board requires four mounting holes (0.3125" diameter) placed in a rectangle, with 5.30" horizontal spacing, and 2.95" vertical spacing.
3.1.1 Bare Board Installation
All mounting accessories are included in Installation Kit.
If you wish to mount the ZNDC inside the panel cabinet, Zeta Alarm Systems requires that you
place the panel batteries in a companion battery cabinet next to the panel cabinet, freeing the
back wall of the cabinet to mount the ZNDC. Use the template in Appendix A of this manual to
accurately drill the holes for the board.
After drilling the holes, attach the stand-offs to the cabinet. Position the board over the standoffs so that the four holes in the board match up with the standoffs. Snap board onto standoffs.

3.2 Grounding Instructions
For bare board installation, ground board by attaching green grounding wire from J1 on board
to earth ground.
For ZNDC enclosure installation, ground board by attaching green grounding wire from J1 on
board to threaded stud in lower left-hand corner of enclosure. Secure with nut. Connect enclosure to earth ground. See Illustration 3.3A.
3.3 Wiring
3.3.1 Wiring Precautions
Maintain ¼" spacing between high and low voltage circuits and power limited and non-power
limited circuits as per the National Electrical Code Article 780.
Induced noise (transfer of electrical energy from one wire to another) can interfere with telephone
communication or even cause false alarms. To avoid induced noise, follow these guidelines:
Do not pull wires from different groups through the same conduit. If you must run them
together, do so for as short a distance as possible or use shielded cable. Connect the shield to
earth ground at the panel only.
High frequency noise, such as that produced by the inductive reactance of a speaker or bell,
can also be reduced by running the wire through ferrite shield beads or by wrapping it around
a ferrite torroid.
Route the wiring around the inside parameter of the enclosure. It should not cross the circuit
board where it could induce noise into the sensitive microelectronics or pick up unwanted RF
noise from the high speed circuits.

ZNDC Installation and Operation Manual
Connecting Phone Lines
Connect ZNDC to phone lines using two RJ45 cables. The RJ45 cables should be standard 8-wire
cables. Connectors and crimps are included in the RJ45 Kit, or may be obtained independently.
See Illustration 4.5B for connector wiring diagram. The RJ45 cables will plug into the wall via
RJ31X jacks, which are installed by the phone company. There will need to be one RJ31X jack for
each phone line.
Pins 1 and 8 (“R1” and “T1”) of the RJ31X jack connect to Network (or, House) phone lines. Pins 4
and 5 (“R” and “T”) connect to the Telco (or, external) phone lines. When nothing is plugged into
the jack, shorting bars inside the jack will connect the incoming Telco lines to the Network Lines.
When the ZNDC is connected, the RJ45 plug will open the shorting bars inside the jack, allowing
the phone lines to run from the Telco lines, through the ZNDC, and out to the Network. When the
ZNDC needs to send an event, it will “seize” the phone line by disconnecting the Telco signals
from the Network. It will restore the connection when the event reporting is complete.

Connecting to the PC
A PCI cable is included with the Installation kit. At one end of the rainbow ribbon cable is a 10-pin,
female connector that hooks into the PCI port on the ZNDC. The other end is a female DB9 connector that connects to one of the COM ports on the back of the PC.
Most PCs will have two COM ports on the back, marked 1 and 2. Some PCs have more, but the
ZNDC has been configured to use only COM 1 or 2.
If you have to use an extension cable between the PCI cable and the PC, use a straight-through,
male to female DB9 connector. Do not use a Null Modem cable.

ZNDC Installation and Operation Manual
At the PC
The ZNDC is programmed using the PC-based configuration program, ZNDC Programmer.
4.2.1 ZNDC Data
The “General Configuration” panel allows you to select:
Seconds Between Dial Attempts: If the ZNDC must make more than one attempt to reach the
central station, this parameter controls how long the ZNDC waits before trying again. Default:
5 seconds.
Maximum Handshake Time: This is the maximum amount of time the ZNDC will wait for a
handshake to be acknowledged by the Central Station. Note: generally, there is no need to
change this setting from the default. However, you might shorten it for test purposes only.
Default: 45 seconds.
Host Panel: Select either Classic 2000 Mk II or Sigma Mk II. Default: Classic 2000 Mk II.
Periodic Test Report Time: This section is used in a Sigma Mk II application.* The Sigma Mk II
panel will send out a periodic test report first at startup, and then at an appointed time later in
the day, and each following day at the same time. With this feature, the time that the periodic
test report is sent out is set at the ZNDC. Note: the time is in 24-hour mode, so 11:00 p.m.
would be 23:00.
* When the ZNDC is used with the Classic 2000 Mk II panel, the Periodic Test Report is sent when the panel
performs a self-test. The default time for the self-test is midnight; refer to the Classic 2000 Mk IIUser
Manual for further details.

4.2.2 Account Data
The ZNDC offers selective reporting. In other words, you may set the ZNDC to report events to
more than one central station. In addition, you may choose which events are reported to which station. In order to communicate with a central station, you must program the ZNDC with the:
Account Number: This must be a four-digit number (0000-9999), and will be provided by the
central station.
Primary Phone Number: This is the number of the central station. You may use up to 32 characters. The number may include a “,” (comma) to delay for two seconds. This is useful if, for
example, you need to route the call through a PBX system. If your phone line supports the
“call waiting” feature, you should disable it by prepending a “*70” for tone dialing, or a “1170”
for pulse dialing.
Secondary Phone Number: This is a secondary number at the same central station, and will
be used as back up in case the primary phone number is somehow disabled.
Reporting Format: Only “Contact ID” is offered.

4.2.3 Communications
The Communications tab provides the communication forum between the ZNDC and ZNDC Programmer. Communications may be viewed in one of two modes: Program or Debug.
Program Mode has the following features:
Read From ZNDC: allows you to import previously programmed configuration and account
data from the ZNDC to the ZNDC Programmer. This is especially useful if ZNDC Programmer
is closed and re-opened, resetting configuration data to defaults and clearing all account data.
Write To ZNDC: allows you to transfer configuration and account data from ZNDC Programmer to the ZNDC.
Online: shows whether or not you are "online," or connected, to the ZNDC. Once you have
gone online, it will also display the ZNDC’s firmware version and release date next to this box.
COMX: indicates the communication port on the PC to which the ZNDC is connected. The
ZNDC may be hooked to either COM1 or COM2. This option may be changed at the Programmer by clicking just below "Online," directly on top of the "COMX." The communications
between the PC and ZNDC requires a PCI cable, connected between the COM port on the
computer and the "PCI" port on the ZNDC (installed with the cable flowing toward the outside
edge of the PCB).
"TX Data" and "RX Data": show the messages as sent to and received from the ZNDC.

ZNDC Installation and Operation Manual
Debug mode is basically a running commentary on what is happening at the ZNDC. It reports dialing attempts, as well as panel events. To interpret the event codes, see Section 6.2.

ZNDC Installation and Operation Manual
5. Operation
5.1
“Comm Test” Switch
The “Comm Test” switch provides a way to manually test the operation of the ZNDC. When the
switch is pressed, the unit will attempt to send a “Manual Test Report” event to the central station
(event code 601). Test reports (whether manual or periodic) are sent on alternating phone lines.
That is, if one test report is sent via line #1, the next will be sent via line #2.
5.2
Ademco Contact ID Protocol Notes
5.2.1. Handshake
The Contact ID protocol expects a dual-tone handshake (1400Hz for 100ms, 0Hz for 100ms, and
2300Hz for 100ms). If the ZNDC does not receive a handshake within 8 seconds after the last digit
of the phone number has been dialed, it will hang up and swap lines.
5.2.2 Event Format
An event is sent using DTMF tones (100ms per digit: 50ms on, 50ms off) in the following format:
ACCT MT QXYZ GG CCC S
ACCT = 4 digit account number
MT
= message type (always “18”)
Q
= event qualifier (“1” = new event, “3” = restoral, “6” = previous event)
XYZ = event code
GG
= group number (Classic 2000 Mk II uses this for the “loop number”)
CCC = zone or sensor number (Classic 2000 Mk II uses this as the device address within the
loop specified in the “group” field)
S
= checksum ((sum of all message digits + S) MOD 15 = 0)
5.2.3 Kissoff Tone
The ZNDC expects a kissoff tone of 1400Hz, lasting at least 400ms, followed by 250ms of silence.
If the ZNDC doesn’t detect the kissoff tone, it will resend the event. Events will continue to be sent
(event message plus kissoff) until the ZNDC has sent all the events in its queue.
5.3
Phone Line Usage
The ZNDC always attempts to call out on line #1 first. If line #1 has a fault or is disabled, line #2
will be selected. If both lines contain a fault, the ZNDC will alternate between lines. If the ZNDC
dials out on a line and does not detect a handshake, it will try again. If the ZNDC sends an event
message and is unable to detect a kissoff tone in four attempts, it will try again. When a certain
number of consecutive failures occur, the ZNDC will switch lines. It will continue attempting to
report the event(s) until it is successful.
5.4
Phone Line Supervision
When not reporting a message, the ZNDC continuously supervises the phone lines. It toggles
between lines approximately every 30 seconds. Thus, a phone line fault (or fault restoral) may take
up to a minute or so before it is recognized.

ZNDC Installation and Operation Manual
PC Programming Software Notes
Some notes regarding the PC Programming software (described in Section 4):
Requires Windows 95 or later; Zeta Alarm Systems recommends using Windows 95C or
98SE.
Switch between communications ports by clicking the “COMx” text beneath the “Online/
Offline” box.
Currently does not save data to disk; later versions may add this capability. If you need to
modify the existing info in a ZNDC, read the data from the ZNDC, modify it, and write it back to
the ZNDC.
The “Debug Info” panel in the “Communications” tab may not be present in later versions; it is
intended only as a debugging aid.

Diagnostic Table
Symptoms
Problem
Solution
1
Classic 2000 Mk II panel reports
this message: “NDC EEPROM
CORRUPT.”
ZNDC has not yet been
programmed.
This message will come up only the
first time the ZNDC is hooked up, or
after it has been reset to factory
defaults. It basically means that the
ZNDC has not been programmed to
communicate with a PC or a
receiver. This message will remain
on the panel until you have written
to the ZNDC, and the panel has
been reset.
2
ZNDC attempts to dial, but no
connection is made. Or, ZNDC
sounds a series of clicks, but does
not dial. The Trouble and Line Fault
LEDs activate on the board, and a
trouble is reported at the panel.
Wrong phone number or
No phone number has been
programmed in at all.
Go to your ZNDC_Prog
programming software, to your
Account Data tab. Enter in the
correct phone number.
Note: Some phone systems require
the user to dial a ‘9’ to pick up an
outside line. If this is the case in
your building, simply put a ‘9’
followed by a ‘,’ (comma) before the
phone number.
After entering the correct
information into ZNDC_Prog, write
to the ZNDC.
3
ZNDC is connected, but will not go
Online with ZNDC_Prog. PC
reports this message: “Trouble
writing to ZNDC.” ZNDC may also
exhibit the same symptoms as
mentioned above.
Wrong COM port.
COM port disconnected.
Wrong or damaged PCI cable.
Make sure the PCI cable that came
with the ZNDC is connected to the
PC at either COM 1 or COM 2.
(Some computers come with more
COM ports, but the ZNDC can be
programmed only for ports 1 and 2.)
At the PC, make sure that the COM
port set in ZNDC_Prog is the same
as the port actually being used. To
change the port in ZNDC_Prog, go
to the Communications tab, and
click once on the COM port listed
just below the Offline / Online sign.
If you have to use an extension
cable between the PCI cable and
the PC, do not use Null Modem
cable. Instead, use a straightthrough, M-to-F DB9 cable.
4
Everything seems to be working,
but ZNDC won’t go online with the
Programmer.
COM port is occupied.
Check to see if any other programs
(such as PC3K or PC1K) are open
and using the COM port
themselves. Note: the computer
cannot share one COM port with
two programs.

Panel reports a Line Fault. The
Trouble and Line Fault LEDs on the
ZNDC light up. Cannot
communicate to the Central
Station.
Line disconnected, or has bad
connection.
There could be several causes to
this problem. First of all, check your
panel-related events with the two
following charts.
Second, check your lines to see
that they haven’t been
disconnected either at the ZNDC, or
at the wall jack. Examine the lines
to see that they have not been cut
or damaged.
Examine the wall jacks to see that
they have been wired properly.
Security devices such as the ZNDC
use an RJ31X wall jack.
If just one line is having problems,
swap the lines, and see if the
problem follows the line. Note: you
can disable a line in the Phone Line
Configuration section in the
ZNDC_Prog program, but the line
will no longer be supervised.
Also try your COMM TEST button
on the ZNDC. See Section 5.1.
The problem could also be at your
Central Station, if the CS is not also
reporting a Line Fault.
If none of the above suggestions
work, the problem may be the
ZNDC. In this case, please call
Zeta Alarm Systems for Tech
Support.
6
ZNDC won’t scan into panel.
Panel software is not current.
Network wiring is damaged,
disconnected, or not configured
correctly.
Older revisions of panel software
do not support the ZNDC. The
Classic 2000 Mk II panel must have
at least v1.4 to support the ZNDC,
and the Sigma Mk II must have at
least v3.1. Verify the version at the
panel; then check with Zeta Alarm
Systems for the latest revision.
If your software is current, check
the network wiring. Make sure the
“+” and “-” lines are not crossed.
Make sure the ZNDC is powered.
Verify network connection at panel.

6.2
ZNDC cannot communicate with
the Central Station.
Solution
Verify the configuration at the
Central Station. Make sure it is
using Contact ID as the reporting
format. Also make sure that it is
using the proper Handshaking and
Kissoff configurations. See section
5.2.
At the PC, make sure the phone
number to the Central Station is
correct.
At the ZNDC, listen with the
speaker to verify that the ZNDC is
dialing and making a connection.
