V-Plex Smart Contact Technology
•
Automatic suppression of fault/restores when disarmed: Smart V-Plex® sensors such as the DT7500SN, and
IS2500SN polling loop motion detectors can be set to stop sending fault/restore signals while the partition is
disarmed. This prevents the polling loop from slowing down due to high bus activity in busy areas. The feature
is enabled by Zone in Zone Programming.
When enabled, within about 5 minutes of program exit, the panel will send the command to the Smart Contacts
to turn off their LED and stop sending faults/restores to the system. (The DT7500SN and IS2500SN will turn off
their LED unless the LED DIP switch is set to ON, in which case the LED will always remain enabled.)
•
•
Automatic Test Mode entry: Upon entering Code + 5 (Burglary Walk Test Mode), the panel will again tell the
PIR to enable the LEDs and start sending faults/restores. The LED will remain enabled until the Burglary Walk
Test mode is exited. Removing and replacing the cover of the DT7500SN and IS2500SN, or power-cycling these
sensors will also put them in the walk test mode, enabling the LEDs and sending of faults/restores for 10
minutes.
NOTE: Regardless of Smart Mode, Tamper and Supervision Failures are sent without delay.
PIR Anti-Mask: Some motion detectors such as the DT7500SN have an “Anti-Mask” feature that will alert the
panel when the lens has been blocked. For DIP switch settings related to this feature, refer to the motion
detector documentation. Anti-Mask can be enabled in zone programming if a zone type 04 (interior) or 10
(interior with delay) and input type 06 (serial poll) are selected. In the event masking occurs, the message “PIR
masked” will be displayed on the keypad, and a trouble report code is used to report the masking.
13
•
Smoke Detector Maintenance: Provides Maintenance Signal support for certain smoke detectors, such as the
5193SD and 5193SDT V-Plex detectors, as well as the 5808W3.
Operation: When programmed as a “Smart Contact” in zone programming, a sensor which is capable of
providing a high or low sensitivity condition (e.g., sensor is dirty) will trigger a message on the keypad, a dialer
report, and an event log entry. The display message will indicate HSENSxxx or LSENSxxx, where xxx is the
zone number.

Provides an auxiliary relay (form C) that can activate alarms troubles/supervisories, reset 4-wire smoke
detectors, or as a battery saver (removes power from non-critical loads 4 hours after AC power loss).
Provides up to 60 installer-defined, custom words that can be used for zone descriptors.
Provides 32 keypad macro commands (each macro is a series of keypad commands of up to 32 keystrokes) using
the A, B, C, and D keys by partition.
Provides cross-zone capability, which helps prevent false alarms by preventing a zone from going into alarm
unless its cross-zone is also faulted within a 5-minute period (does not apply to Fire zones).
Contains a built-in User Manual, which provides the end user with a brief explanation of the function of a key
when the user presses any of the function keys on the keypad for 5 seconds.
Provides trigger outputs, which may interface with Communication equipment or other devices such as a
keyswitch, a Honeywell access control system, or an automation system.
Provides an option to have trouble and supervisory conditions automatically clear from the display when the
zone returns to the ready/normal state (entry of Code + OFF is not required).
At least one 2-line alpha keypad (6160/6160CR-2) must be connected to the system for programming (if you are
using keypad programming), and must remain connected to the system in order to allow the primary user to program
additional user codes into the system at a later time.

Guidelines for Wiring a System
•
The installer must keep certain guidelines in mind while installing a system. The Vista-128FBPT/250FBPT
contains an ECP bus and a polling loop bus for connecting Fire and Burglary devices. When installing both
Commercial Fire and Burglary devices, all Fire devices must be isolated from the Burglary devices on each
bus. This is accomplished by using an ECP isolator on the ECP bus, and a V-Plex VSI on the V-Plex loop,
as shown in Figure 1-1.
•
Additionally, in Commercial Fire installations, the primary keypad must be connected to Keypad Port 2
mounted within 20 feet of the control panel, and wired in conduit.
•
Synchronization is required on devices connected to an individual alarm output. Each NAC can have its
own synchronization module in order to synchronize devices on that output, and those devices should be
located in the same visual/audible area. No synchronization is required between two outputs/individual
sync modules.
•
Notification Appliance Circuits (NAC) must be wired and isolated or Riser Conductors must be installed in
accordance with the survivability from attack by fire requirements in the National Fire Alarm Code, NFPA
72.

Theory of Partitioning
This system provides the ability to arm and disarm up to 8 different areas, as if each had its own control. These areas
are called partitions. A Partitioned system allows the user to disarm certain areas while leaving other areas armed, or
to limit access to certain areas to specific individuals. Each system user can be assigned to operate any or all partitions,
and can be given a different authority level in each.
Before anything can be assigned to those partitions, you must first determine how many partitions (1-8) are required.
Following are some facts you need to know about partitioning.
Keypads
Each keypad must be given a unique "address" and be assigned to one partition. It can also be assigned to Partition 9 if
Master keypad operation is desired. (See “Master Keypad Setup and Operation” later in this section.)
UL
In Commercial Fire installations, field 2∗18 (Log on from other partitions) must be disabled for partition 1.
Zones
Each zone must be assigned to one partition. The zones assigned to a partition will be displayed on that partition's
keypad(s).
UL
All fire zones must be assigned to partition 1 to ensure that all Fire Test modes operate correctly.
Users
Each user may be given access to one or more partitions. If a user is to operate more than one partition and would like
to arm/disarm all or some of those partitions with a single command, the user must be enabled for Global Arming for
those partitions (when entering user codes).
A user with access to more than one partition (multiple access) can "log on" to one partition from another partition's
keypad, provided that program field 2∗18: Enable GOTO is enabled for each partition he/she wants to log on to from
another.
A partition can be selected as a "common lobby" partition, and other partitions can affect this partition by causing
arming/disarming of this partition to be automated (see “Common Lobby Logic” later in this section).
Setting-Up a Partitioned System
The basic steps to setting up a partitioned system are described below. If you need more information on how to program
the options, see the Programming Guide.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Determine how many partitions the system will consist of (programmed in field 2∗00).
Assign keypads to partitions (Device Programming in the #93 Menu Mode).
Assign zones to partitions (Zone Programming in the #93 Menu Mode).
Confirm zones are displayed at the keypad(s) assigned to those partitions.
Assign users to partitions.
6.
Enable the GOTO feature (program field 2∗18) for each partition a multiple-access user can log on to (alpha keypad
only).
Program partition-specific fields) (see the Programming Guide).
7.
Common Lobby Logic
When an installation consists of a partition shared by users of other partitions in a building, that shared partition may
be assigned as the "common lobby" partition for the system (program field 1∗17). An example of this might be in a
medical building where there are two doctors’ offices and a common entrance area (see example that follows
explanation).
The Common Lobby feature employs logic for automatic arming and disarming of the common lobby. Two programming
fields determine the way the common lobby will react relative to the status of other partitions. They are: 1∗18 Affects
Lobby and 1∗19 Arms Lobby.
17
1∗18
Affects Lobby (must be programmed by partition)
Setting this field to 1 for a specific partition causes that partition to affect the operation of the common lobby as follows:
a. When the first partition that affects the lobby is disarmed, the lobby is automatically disarmed.
b. The common lobby cannot be armed unless every partition selected to affect the lobby is armed.
Arms Lobby (must be programmed by partition)
1∗19
Setting this field to 1 for a specific partition causes that partition to affect the operation of the common lobby as follows:
a. The common lobby cannot be armed unless every partition selected to affect the lobby is armed.
b. Arming a partition that is programmed to arm the lobby causes the system to automatically attempt to arm the
lobby. If any faults exist in the lobby partition, or if another partition that affects the lobby is disarmed, the lobby
cannot be armed, and the message "UNABLE TO ARM LOBBY PARTITION" is displayed.
You cannot select a partition to "arm" the lobby unless it has first been selected to "affect" the lobby. Do not enable
field 1∗19 without enabling field 1∗18.
The following chart sums up how the common lobby partition will operate.

Example
Here is an example of how the lobby would react in a typical setup.
User #1 has access to Office #1 and the Common Lobby.
User #2 has access to Office #2 and the Common Lobby.
Office #1 is set up to affect the Common Lobby, but not arm it.
Office #2 is set up to affect and arm the Common Lobby.
NOTE: In the tables below, the notations in parentheses ( ) indicate the current status of the other partition when the
user takes action.

User #2:

User #1:

No Change
Notice that in sequence #1, because Office #2 was the last to arm, the lobby also armed (Office #2 is programmed to
affect and arm the lobby). In sequence #2, the lobby could not arm when Office #2 armed, because Office #1, which
affects the lobby, was still disarmed.
When Office #1 armed, the lobby still did not arm because Office #1 was not programmed to arm the lobby. User #1
would have to arm the lobby manually. Therefore, you would want to program a partition to affect and arm the lobby if
the users of that partition are expected to be the last to leave the building.
Do not assign partition 1 as the common lobby if fire zones are being used in the system. All fire zones must be
assigned to partition 1 to ensure all Fire Test modes operate correctly.
How User Access Codes Affect the Common Lobby
Codes with Global Arming
If a code is given "global arming" when it is defined (see the SECTION 6: User Access Codes), the keypad prompts the
user to select the partitions they want to arm. Only the partitions the user has access to are displayed. This allows the
user to choose the partitions to be armed or disarmed, and so eliminates the "automatic" operation of the lobby. Keep in
mind, however, that if a user attempts to arm all, and another "affecting" partition is disarmed, the user cannot arm the
lobby, and the message "UNABLE TO ARM LOBBY PARTITION" is displayed.
Codes with Non-Global Arming
If a user arms with a non-global code, the lobby partition operation is automatic, as described by fields 1∗18 and 1∗19.
Other Methods of Arming/Disarming
Common Lobby logic remains active when arming or disarming a partition that affects and/or arms the common lobby in
one of the following manners:
•
Quick-Arm
•
Keyswitch
•
Wireless Button
•
Wireless Keypad
Arming/Disarming Remotely
If a user arms or disarms remotely (through Compass downloading software), the lobby does not automatically follow
another partition that is programmed to arm or disarm the lobby. The lobby must be armed separately, after arming all
affecting partitions first.
Auto-Arming/Disarming
If scheduling is used to automatically arm and/or disarm partitions, the common lobby partition does not automatically
follow another partition that is programmed to arm or disarm the lobby. The lobby partition must be scheduled to
arm/disarm and must be scheduled as the last partition to arm.
If you are using auto-arming, make sure that the Auto-Arm Delay and Auto-Arm Warning periods, for the lobby
partition, (fields 2∗05 and 2∗06) combined are longer than that of any other partition that affects the lobby. This
causes the lobby to arm last.
Master Keypad Setup and Operation
Although this system has eight actual partitions, it provides an extra partition strictly for the purpose of assigning
keypads as Master keypads for the system.
Assigning any keypad to Partition 9 in Device Programming in the #93 Menu Mode makes that keypad a Master keypad.
A Master keypad reflects the status of the entire system (Partitions 1-8) on its display at one time. This is useful
because it eliminates the need for a building security officer to have to log on to various partitions from one partition's
keypad to find out where an alarm has occurred.
UL
In Commercial Fire installations, field 2∗18 (Log on from other partitions) must be disabled for partition 1.
19
The following is a typical display:
SYSTEM 12345678
STATUS RRNNA TB
Possible status indications include:
A = Armed Away
S = Armed Stay
I = Armed Instant
R = Ready
B = Bypassed/Ready
F = Fire Alarm
∗ = Alarm
P = AC Power Failure
M = Armed Maximum
N = Not Ready
C = Comm Fail
T = Trouble
L = Low System Battery
To obtain more information regarding a particular partition, enter [∗] + Partition No. (e.g., [∗] + [4]). This allows viewing
only of that partition. In order to affect that partition, the user must use a code that has access to that partition. Also,
in order for a user of any partition to log on to Partition 9 to view the status of all partitions, that user must have access
to all partitions. Otherwise, access is denied.
The following is displayed for a fault condition on Zone 2 (Loading Dock Window) on Partition 1 (Warehouse) when a
user logs on from a keypad on Partition 9:
WHSE DISARMED
HIT T FOR FAULTS
Pressing [∗] causes the following display to appear at Partition 1's keypad(s):
FAULT 002 LOADING
DOCK WINDOW
Additional zone faults are displayed one at a time. To display a new partition's status, press [∗] + Partition No.
The Armed LED on a Master keypad is lit only if all partitions have been armed successfully. The Ready LED is lit only
if all partitions are "ready to arm." Neither LED is lit if only some partitions are armed and/or only some partitions are
ready.
Press [∗] + [0] or [∗] + [9] to return to the master partition. Otherwise, if no keys are pressed for 2 minutes, the system
automatically returns to the master partition
The sounder on a Master keypad reflects the sound of the most critical condition on all of the partitions. The priority of
the sounds, from most to least critical, is as follows:
1. Pulsing fire alarm sounds
2. Steady burglar alarm sounds
3. Trouble sounds (rapid beeping)
Silence the sounder by pressing any key on the Master keypad or a keypad on the partition where the condition exists.
A Master keypad uses the same panics as Partition 1. Master keypad panics are sent to Partition 1, and will activate
on Partition 1. Therefore, panics must be programmed for Partition 1.

Installing the Control's Circuit Board
To install the circuit board in the cabinet, perform the following steps:
Step
Action
1
Confirm the Mounting Plate is installed securely in the cabinet (Figure 3-4, Detail A). Install the nylon
standoffs (supplied) into the top corner holes of the mounting plate (Detail B.) Insert the top of the circuit
board onto the two standoffs at the top of the mounting plate.
2
Place the board flat and secure to the mounting plate with the three accompanying screws and spacers as
shown in (Detail C.)
NOTES:
•
Make sure that the tabs on the side of the plate did not pop out during shipping and are inserted into the
appropriate slots.
•
Make sure that the mounting screws are tight. This ensures that there is a good ground connection between the PC
board and the cabinet.
•
Dress field wiring away from the microprocessor (center) section of the PC board. Use the mounting plate brackets
on the left and right sidewalls of the cabinet for anchoring field wiring using tie wraps (Figure 3-3). These steps are
important to minimize the risk of panel RF interference with television reception.

1
Determine wire gauge by referring to the Wire Run Length/Gauge table below.
Wire Run Length/Gauge Table
Wire Gauge
Length
#22 gauge
450 feet
#20 gauge
700 feet
#18 gauge
1100 feet
#16 gauge
1750 feet
2
Wire keypads to a single wire run or connect individual keypads to separate wire runs. The maximum wire run
length from the control to a keypad, which is homerun back to the control, must not exceed the lengths listed in
the table.
3
Run field wiring from the control to the keypads (using standard 4-conductor cable of the wire gauge
determined in step 1).
4
Connect keypad(s) to terminals 11, 12, 13, and 14 on the control board, see Figure 3-5.
NOTE: In a Fire Application and when using only one keypad, it must be connected to Keypad Port 2, and must
be mounted within 20 feet of the cabinet wired in conduit. The keypad on Port 2 is electrically isolated from
those on Port 1 and will continue to function even if wiring problems prevent the other keypads from working
properly.
•
•
The length of all wire runs combined, regardless of the wire gauge, must not exceed 2000 feet when unshielded
quad conductor cable is used (1000 feet if unshielded cable is run in conduit, which acts a shield, or if shielded
cable is used).
If more than one keypad is wired to one run, then the above maximum lengths must be divided by the number of
keypads on the run (e.g., the maximum length is 225 feet if two keypads are wired on a #22 gauge run).
24
Figure 3-5: Keypad Connections to Control Panel
Commercial Fire Requirements
For commercial fire installations, the primary fire keypad must be installed on panel Keypad Port 2 and mounted within
20 feet of the control panel. External wiring must be run in conduit.
Additionally, you can install supplemental fire keypads and devices on ECP Port 1, using an ECP Isolator to separate all
fire wiring from all burglary wiring (see Figure 3-6).
Figure 3-6. ECP Isolator Wiring
Addressing the Keypads
The keypads will not operate until they are physically addressed and enabled in the system's Device Programming
in the #93 Menu Mode.
Set each keypad for an individual address (00-30) according to the keypad's instructions. Set an alpha keypad for
address 00 and other keypads for higher addresses (00 and 01 are enabled in the system's default program). Any
keypads set for address 02 and above will appear blank until they are enabled in the system's program. Each keypad
must be set for a different address.
25
• Do not set any keypads to address 31 (nonaddressable mode). They will interfere with other keypads (as well as
other devices) connected to the keypad terminals.
• If an “OPEN CIRCUIT” message is present on a keypad, data from the control is not reaching the keypad. Please
check your wiring.
Supplementary Power Supply for Additional Keypads
When the control’s auxiliary power load for all devices exceeds 1A, you can power additional keypads from a regulated
12VDC power supply. Use a UL Listed, battery-backed supply for UL installations. For fire applications, the power
supply must be UL1481 Listed.
Connect the additional keypads as shown in Figure 3-7, using the keypad wire colors shown. Be sure to observe the
current ratings for the power supply used.
UL
For UL commercial fire and burglary installations, no more than one wire per terminal may be connected.
Use only 14-22AWG wire.
• Make connections directly to the screw terminals as shown in Figure 3-7.
• Be sure to connect the negative (–) terminal on the power supply unit to terminal 7 (–) on the control.
Figure 3-7. Using a Supplementary Power Supply
Installing External Sounders
The VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT provides two Notification Appliance Circuits for operating fire and burglary
alarm notification appliances. Each circuit is rated as Special Application or Regulated NAC for Fire and 10VDC –
14VDC, 1.7A max. power-limited for Burglary.
NOTE: Bell 1 should only be used for Burg and Bell 2 for Fire.
NOTE: The total alarm current drawn from Auxiliary Power 1, Auxiliary Power 2, polling loop, Bell 1, and Bell 2 cannot
exceed 2.3A (for Canada 1.95A) for battery-independent operation.
The outputs have the following options:
•
Selectable to activate by individual zone assignments
26
•
•
•
Selectable for confirmation of arming ding.
Selectable to chime when entry/exit or perimeter zones are faulted.
Selectable for no timeout or timeout of 2-30 minutes.
You may use a Commercial Fire Listed 24VDC Power Supply to convert one or both VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA250FBPT 12VDC, 1.7A style-Y supervised Special Application Notification Appliance Circuits to 24V, style-Y
supervised, Special Application Notification Appliance Circuits.
UL
•
•
Burglary Notification Appliance Circuits must be programmed for a timeout of 16 minutes or longer.
Commercial fire alarm systems require Notification Appliance Circuits to be supervised.
Notification Appliance Circuit Supervision
The VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT monitors the Notification Appliance Circuits wiring for open and short circuit
faults while the output is inactive. The system provides a trouble indication (Zone 970 Bell 1; 971 Bell 2) when an open
occurs. When a short occurs between the Bell (+) and Bell (-) terminal wiring, or between the Bell (+) terminal wiring
and earth ground the system provides a trouble indication (972 Earth Ground).
The VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT indicates the trouble condition regardless of whether the system is armed or
disarmed. The zone displays on the keypads, reports to the event log, and transmits to the central station (if
programmed) on Partition 1. The trouble is cleared from the display by entering the user code + OFF.
UL
ULC
Use only UL Listed sounding devices for UL installations.
In Commercial Fire installations, the 4204CF cannot be used to drive sounders in the same audible area as
sounders connected to the alarm outputs of the control panel.
For ULC fire installations, alarm indicating devices must not be connected to the fire transmitter. These
devices must be connected to the Fire Alarm Control Panel.
Synchronization Requirements for Commercial Fire
Notification Appliance Circuit outputs must be wired to a Sync Module if more than one device is used. Follow
instructions provided with Sync Module. Be sure to use the compatible Sync Module for the Alarm Indicating Device
selected.

Supervising the Notification Appliance Circuits
To wire the NAC using the supervision feature, perform the following:
Install a 2K EOL resistor (Model 2EOL, supplied) across the last notification appliance on each Notification Appliance
Circuit to be supervised.
Auxiliary Relay Connections
The VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT provides a built-in Form C relay with contacts rated at 28VAC/VDC, 2.8A. The
relay may be programmed (field 3∗61) for one of the following functions:
•
Alarm Activation
•
Trouble/Supervisory Activation
•
4-Wire Smoke Detector Reset
•
Battery Saver
Alarm Activation
(3∗61 = 1 or 4) Steady activation in response to an alarm.
If field 3∗61 = 1, the auxiliary relay remains active until Aux. Relay Timeout expires or until User Code + OFF is
entered. This option can be used to provide an unsupervised Notification Appliance Circuit for supplementary strobes,
sounders, etc. when wired to the Aux Power 1 or a separate power supply, see Figure 3-8.
29
If field 3∗61 = 4, the auxiliary relay remains activated until User Code + # + 67 is entered. By default, the relay is set
to activate on alarm zones 1-8 with no timeout (field 3∗61 = 1).
When field 3∗61 = 1, the auxiliary relay can be programmed to give a brief activation for confirmation of arming ding
(field 3∗57) or Chime Mode (field 3∗59).
Figure 3-8: Wiring Auxiliary Relay for Alarm Activation
Trouble/Supervisory Activation
(3∗61 = 0) Steady activation in response to any zone or system related trouble condition or to any fire supervisory
condition. The auxiliary relay remains activated until all fault conditions have been corrected and a User Code + OFF
is entered.
4-Wire Smoke Detector Reset
(3∗61 = 2) Momentary (8-second) activation in response to a second entry of a User Code + OFF sequence following a
fire alarm condition. This interrupts power to 4-wire smoke detectors connected to hardwired zones 1-8 and polling loop
zones, allowing the detectors to be reset. Power to the detectors should be wired to the auxiliary relay and to Aux. Power
1 output, see Figure 3-9.
Battery Saver
(3∗61 = 3) When this option is selected, the auxiliary relay is normally activated (e.g., N.O. and pole contacts are
connected) and de-activates 4 hours after the start of AC Loss. Using this feature, non-critical loads, such as
supplementary keypads, can be disconnected from the auxiliary power outputs, allowing a smaller capacity battery to be
used. The relay re-activates within a few seconds after the AC power restores.
Figure 3-9: Wiring Auxiliary Relay for Smoke Detector Reset
Telephone Line Connections
The VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT provides one main built-in dialer for communication to the central station and
one optional 5140DLM Backup Dialer, both supervised for voltage and current on the phone lines
Do not connect the system to telephone lines that require ground start service.
30
For Listed fire central station (UL864/NFPA 72) applications, use communications device 7847i alone, the main
dialer with the 7847i or use the main dialer with the 5140DLM.
For listed fire remote station (UL864/NFPA 72) applications, use the main dialer with the 5140DLM.
Telephone line supervision is required for commercial fire alarm systems.
UL
Main Dialer Connections
ULC The 5140DLM Backup Dialer cannot be used for ULC fire installations.
To connect the main dialer, refer to the Summary of Connections diagram and perform the following steps:
Step
Action
1
Connect the main dialer to the telephone company lines using the cable supplied.
2
If the dialer output is connected to telephone lines that have a telephone company MTU installed, cut the
blue jumper (W6).
Installing the 5140DLM Backup Dialer
Do not connect the main dialer and the backup dialer to the same telephone company line.
To install the 5140DLM, refer to the Summary of Connections diagram and perform the following steps:
Step
Action
1
Mount the 5140DLM to the main PC board shield.
2
Connect the backup dialer to the telephone company lines using the cable supplied.
3
Connect the backup dialer to the J3 connector on the main PC board using the ribbon cable (supplied with
the module).
4
Connect the earth ground screw on the 5140DLM to the earth ground terminal (30) on the main PC board
using 16AWG wire.
5
If the dialer output is connected to telephone lines that have a telephone company MTU installed, cut the
blue jumper on the 5140DLM PC board.
Telephone Line Supervision
If the tip/ring voltage falls below approximately 25 volts (13 volts if the blue jumper is cut) or the handset current is less
than approximately 10mA, the supervision circuits for the dialer output will indicate a fault condition. Faults on the
phone lines are displayed as zones 974 (main dialer) and 975 (backup dialer).
•
•
To prevent risk of shock, disconnect the phone lines at the telco jack before servicing the panel.
If the communicator is connected to a telephone line inside a PABX, be sure the PABX has backup power
supply that can support the PABX for 24 hours (central station usage) or 60 hours (remote station usage).
Many PABXs are not power-backed up, and connection to such a PABX results in a communication failure if
power is lost.
Zone 974 (Primary Dialer Supervision) must be enabled in order for the backup dialer (or communications
device, if used) to communicate in the event that the primary dialer fails.
If a communications device is used as the primary dialer, then its supervisory zone must be enabled (e.g. 8XX,
where XX is the device address of the communications device.
UL
The telephone line inputs have overvoltage protection in accordance with UL1459.
Reporting Formats
The system is shipped defaulted for Contact ID communication. It is the only format capable of uniquely
reporting all 250 zones, as well as openings and closings for all 250 users. This requires central stations to be
equipped with receivers that support the complete set of Contact ID report codes, such as the MX8000 or
7810iR-ent. If you need to update your MX8000 receiver, contact your distributor.
The system supports ADEMCO Contact ID; ADEMCO 10-Digit Contact ID and 4+2 Express formats.
31
Dialer Operation
When only the main dialer is enabled (field 3∗30 = 1, 0), the system attempts to route all messages over the main dialer
output. When both the main and backup dialers are enabled (field 3*30 = 1,1), the panel will Alternate Dialers by pairs
(make two attempts to report on the Main Dialer, then make two attempts to report on the Back Up dialer). The panel
will continue to do this to the Primary Phone number until it reaches its programmed attempts in 3∗21, then it will do
the same to the Secondary phone number. Test Report is always sent on Alternating dialers.
The communicator makes up to 8 attempts to transmit the messages to one or both telephone numbers (primary and
secondary), depending on the report routing options programmed. After the 8th attempt, the communicator hangs up and
the system displays “COMM FAIL” on the keypad. The number of dialer attempts are programmed in field 3∗21 (default
= 8; must be restricted to 3, 4, or 5 if a secondary phone number is programmed).
Wiring Burglary and Panic Devices to Zones 1-8
The maximum zone resistance is 100 ohms for zones 1, 2 and 8, and 300 ohms for all other zones (excluding the
2K EOL resistor).
To wire burglary and panic devices to zones 1-8, connect sensors/contacts to the hardwire zone terminals (15 through
27). Connect N.C. and N.O. devices as follows:
•
Connect N.C. devices in series with the high (+) side of the loop. The 2K EOL resistor must be connected in series
with the devices, following the last device.
•
Connect N.O. devices in parallel (across) the loop. The 2K EOL resistor must be connected across the loop wires
at the last device.
Using 2-Wire Smoke Detectors on Zones 1 and 2
Zone 1 and 2 can support up to 16 2-wire smoke detectors each (32 total).
The alarm current on zones 1 and 2 supports only one smoke detector in the alarmed state.
When assigned zone type 9 or 16, the second entry of a User Code + off at a keypad interrupts power to these zones to
allow detectors to be reset following an alarm.
Compatible 2-Wire Smoke Detectors
For ULC fire installations, 2-Wire Smoke Detectors must not be connected to the fire transmitter. These devices
ULC must be connected to the Fire Alarm Control Panel.

These smoke detectors are UL Listed for use with the VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT and are the only 2wire smoke detectors that may be used.
A combination of heat detectors and smoke detectors is not permitted on a zone programmed for fire
verification.
Fire installations require the use of a synchronization module to synchronize the sounders and strobes on the
system.
32
Wiring 2-Wire Smoke Detectors to Zones 1 and 2
2K EOL resistors must be used on fire zones and must be connected across the loop wires of each zone at the
last detector.
To wire 2-wire smoke detectors to zone 1 and/or zone 2, perform the following steps:
Step
Action
1
Select 2-wire smoke detectors from the list of compatible detectors.
2
Connect 2-wire smoke detectors across zone 1 (terminals 15 and 16), and/or zone 2 (terminals 17 and 18) as
shown in Figure 3-10. Observe proper polarity when connecting the detectors.
3
Connect the EOL resistor at the last detector in the loop across the zone 1 terminals. The EOL resistor
must be connected across the loop wires at the last detector.
Figure 3-10: 2-Wire Smoke Detector on Zone 1 (for zone 2 use terminals 17 and 18)
Using 4-Wire Smoke Detectors on Zones 1-8
For ULC fire installations, 4-Wire Smoke Detectors must not be connected to the fire transmitter. These devices
ULC must be connected to the Fire Alarm Control Panel.
You may use as many 4-wire smoke detectors as can be powered from the panel's Auxiliary Power output without
exceeding the output's rating (1A (for Canada 650mA)).
Auxiliary power to 4-wire smoke detectors is not automatically reset after an alarm, and therefore must be
momentarily interrupted using the auxiliary relay.
Compatible 4-Wire Smoke Detectors
Use any UL Listed 4-wire smoke detector that is rated for 12VDC operation and that has alarm reset time not exceeding
6 seconds. Some compatible 4-wire smoke detectors are listed below.

Wiring 4-Wire Smoke Detectors
UL
Power to 4-wire smoke detectors must be supervised with an EOL device (use a System Sensor EOLR-1 EOL relay
module connected as shown in Figure 3-11).
A combination of heat detectors and smoke detectors is not permitted on a zone programmed for fire verification.
Fire installations require the use of a synchronization module to synchronize the sounders and strobes on the
system.
To wire 4-wire smoke detectors to zones 1-8 or polling loop expansion module zones, perform the following steps:
Step
Action
1
Select 4-wire smoke detectors (see list of compatible detectors shown previously in this section).
2
Connect detectors (including heat detectors, if used) across terminals of the zone selected. All detectors must
be wired in parallel. See Figure 3-11.
3
Connect the EOLR at the last detector in the loop across the zone’s terminals. You must connect the
EOLR across the loop wires at the last detector.
Figure 3-11: 4-Wire Smoke Detectors
Zone 6 Tamper Configuration
Zone 6 may be used as a tamper loop for the VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT Cabinet Door Tamper Switch.
Assign zone 6 to a burglary partition. Program it for day trouble/night alarm (zone type 5) when only one burglary
partition is used. Program it for 24-hr. audible alarm (zone type 7) when more than one burglary partition is used.
Enable the Zone 6 Alternate Tamper Function (program field 3∗17).
Tamper Supervision for the Hardwired Zones
The system can be programmed to monitor for either an open condition or a short condition of a tamper switch on zones
1-8. End-of-line supervision is required for this option.
Wiring a Tamper Switch to Zones 1-8
The wiring of the tamper switch depends on whether the tamper switch and the sensor are normally open or normally
closed.
•
If you are using a normally closed sensor, the tamper switch must be normally open. Refer to Figure 3-12 for
the wiring configuration.
•
If you are using a normally open sensor, the tamper switch must be normally closed. Refer to Figure 3-13 for
the wiring configuration.
To wire a tamper switch on a hardwired zone, connect the EOL resistor at the last detector in the loop across the zone’s
terminals. You must connect the EOL resistor at the last detector for proper operation of the tamper
supervision.
NOTE: For the normally closed sensor, program the zone for trouble on short. For the normally open sensor,
program the zone for trouble on open.
NOTE: For zones with a response type of 9 or 16 (Fire), the tamper selection must be “0” none.

Installing V-Plex Devices
The polling loop provides both power and data to the V-Plex devices, and is constantly monitoring the status of all zones
enabled on the loop. The maximum current draw of all devices on the polling loop cannot total more than 128mA (unless
the system uses a 4297 Polling Loop Extender Module).
Devices that can be programmed via either DIP switches or the built-in unique serial number must be set for serial
number mode operation.
All devices on the polling loop must be wired in parallel to the [+] and [-] polling loop terminals of the control panel (28
and 29). You can wire from device to device, or have multiple branches connected directly to the control panel in a star
configuration. If a module is using optional aux power, do not connect the [ - ] polling loop terminal to the device. Use
the ground from the power source.
1. Do not run polling loop wires within 6” of AC power, telephone, or intercom wiring. The polling loop is carrying
data between the control panel and the devices, interference on this loop can cause an interruption of this
communication. The polling loop can also cause outgoing interference on the intercom or phone lines. If this
spacing cannot be achieved, shielded wire must be used. (Note that the maximum total wire length supported
is cut in half when shielded wire is used.)
2. The IS25000SN and DT7500SN can be programmed as a “Smart Contact” in Zone Programming. This
prevents those PIRs from displaying faults during the disarmed state.
3. Twisted-pair is recommended for all wire runs.
4. No more than 64mA may be drawn on any individual wire run.
UL
•
•
The 4190SN right loop must not be used, and the left loop must be EOLR-supervised.

NOTE: If you are using serial number devices, and intend to enroll each device through the keypad
automatically, wire no more than 25 of these devices to the control at a time. Then power up and
program them before connecting the next 25. Leave previously enrolled devices connected.
If you intend to manually enter the serial numbers through the keypad or through Compass downloading
software, all the devices may be connected before powering up to program.

Polling Loop Supervision
A short on the polling loop is indicated by a trouble on zone 997 and reports as a trouble condition only.
If a device on the polling loop fails (the panel cannot "see" that device), the system displays a trouble condition for all
zones on that device. If the panel is armed when a device fails, and the zone is a burglary zone, the zone will go into
alarm.
A trouble on zone 997 prevents a partition from being armed, unless all polling loop zones on that partition are
bypassed.
Using the 4297 Polling Loop Extender
The 4297 Polling Loop Extender may be used to provide additional polling loop current, to extend the polling loop wire
run length, and/or to provide individual electrically isolated polling loops. Refer to Figures 3-15 and 3-16, to follow.
DO NOT use the 4197 Polling Loop Extender module with the VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT.
Be sure to include the total current drawn on the polling loop when figuring the total auxiliary load on the panel’s
power supply.

RF System Operation and Supervision
The 5800 RF system operation has the following characteristics:
•
The receiver responds to a frequency of 345MHz.
•
The receiver has a nominal range of 200 feet.
•
Supervised transmitters send a supervisory signal every 70-90 minutes.
•
Zones 988 and 990 are used to supervise the RF reception of receivers 2 and 1, respectively. The reception is
supervised for the following two conditions:
1.
2.
UL
•
•
•
•
•
The receiver goes “deaf” (doesn’t hear from any transmitter) within a programmed interval of time (defined by
program field 1∗30).
Proper RF reception is impeded (i.e., jamming or other RF interference). The control checks for this condition
every 20 seconds.
st
nd
A response type 19 (24-Hour Trouble) must be programmed for zones 990 (1 receiver) and 988 (2 receiver) for
UL installations.
The 5881ENHC receiver contains front and back tampers that permit its use in commercial burglary installations.
You may only mount the 5881ENHC its own plastic housing. Otherwise, the receiver constantly reports a tamper
condition.
The control checks the receiver connections about every 20 seconds. The receiver supervisory zone is 8 + 2-digit
receiver device address (for example, Device address 05 = supervisory zone 805).
NOTE: This zone must be programmed with a response type (e.g., type 19 24-Hour Trouble) before it supervises the
connection to the receiver.
Use two identical receivers to provide either a greater area of coverage or redundant protection. They must be set for
different addresses.
Any zone from 1 to 250 can be used as a 5800 Series wireless zone, with the exception of zone 64 (reserved for a
wireless keypad).
RF System Installation Advisories
•
Place the receiver in a high, centrally located area. Do not place it on or near metal objects. This will decrease the
range and/or block transmissions.
•
Install the RF receiver at least 10 feet from the control panel or any keypads, to avoid interference from the
microprocessors in these units.
•
If dual receivers are used:
a. Both must be at least 10 feet from each other, as well as from the control panel and remote keypads.
b. Each receiver must be set to a different device address. The receiver set to the lower address is considered the
1st RF receiver for supervisory purposes.
c. The House IDs must be the same.
d. Using two receivers does not increase the number of transmitters the system can support (249 zones using the
5881ENHC).
Installation and Setup of the 5881ENHC RF Receiver
Take note of the address you select for the RF receiver, as this address must be enabled in the system’s Device
Programming in the #93 Menu Mode.
38
To install the 5881ENHC RF receiver, perform the following steps:
Step
Action
1
Mount the receiver, following the advisories stated previously.
NOTE: Must be mounted in a 5800Box Enclosure.
2
Set the DIP switches in the receiver for the address (01-07). See Figure 3-18.
Make sure the address setting is not being used by another device (keypad, relay module, etc.).
3
If installing a 5881ENHC, install a flat-head screw (supplied) in the case tamper tab as shown in Figure 317. When the receiver is pried from the wall, the tamper tab will break off and remain on the wall. This will
activate a tamper switch in the receiver and cause generation of a tamper signal. Note that this signal will
also be generated when the receiver’s front cover is removed.
4
Connect the receiver’s wire harness to the keypad terminals (11, 12, 13 and 14). Plug the connector at the
other end of the harness into the receiver.
5
Refer to the Installation Instructions provided with the receiver for installations regarding antenna
mounting, etc.

Figure 3-18: 5881ENHC RF Receiver (cover removed)
39
5800 Series Transmitter Setup
•
Transmitters have built-in serial numbers that must be enrolled in the system using the #93 Menu Mode
Programming, or via the downloader.
• Some transmitters can support more than one “zone” (loops or inputs) (e.g., 5817CB). Each loop must be assigned a
different zone number.
Transmitter Supervision
Supervised RF transmitters send a check-in signal to the receiver at 70–90 minute intervals. If at least one check-in is
not received from each supervised transmitter within a programmed period (field 1∗31), the “missing” transmitter
number(s) and “CHECK” or “TRBL” are displayed.
Some transmitters have built-in tamper protection, and annunciate a “CHECK” or “TRBL” condition if covers are
removed.
If a loss of supervision occurs on a transmitter programmed for Fire, it reports in Contact ID as a Fire Trouble
(373), not Loss of Supervision (381), to the central station.
Transmitter Input Types
All transmitters have one or more unique factory-assigned input (loop) codes. Transmitters can be programmed as one
of the following types:
Type
Description
RM (RF Motion)
Sends periodic check-in signals, fault and low-battery signals. The control panel automatically restores the
zone to “ready” after a few seconds. It is intended for facilities with multiple motion detectors that may fault
and restore simultaneously. The transmitter must remain within the receiver’s range.
NOTE: RF Motion may only be used on loop 1 of a door/window type transmitter.
RF (Supervised RF)
Sends periodic check-in signals, fault, restore, and low-battery signals. The transmitter must remain within
the receiver’s range.
UR (Unsupervised RF)
Sends all the signals that the RF type does, but the control does not supervise the check-in signals. The
transmitter may be carried off-premises.
BR (Unsupervised Button
RF)
These send only fault signals. They do not send low-battery signals until they are activated. The
transmitter may be carried off-premises. Not applicable in Commercial installations.
Transmitter Battery Life
Batteries in the wireless transmitters may last from 4 to 7 years, depending on the environment, usage, and the specific
wireless device being used. Factors such as humidity, high or low temperatures, as well as large swings in temperature
may all reduce the actual battery life in a given installation.
The wireless system can identify a true low battery situation, thus allowing the dealer or user of the system time to
arrange a change of battery and maintain protection for that point within the system.

Installing Output Devices
The VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT supports up to 96 outputs. Each device must be programmed as to how to act
(ACTION), when to activate (START), and when to deactivate (STOP). The 4204, 4204CF, and/or 4101SN may be used
as output devices.
NOTE: The first 32 of the 96 Output Devices may be supervised (zones 601-632). Only the relays on 4204CF
module may be supervised. If supervision is programmed for other types of Output Devices, unpredictable
results may occur.
Installing the 4204 (Burg and Aux Fire Functions) and 4204CF Relay Modules
Each 4204 module provides 4 relays with Form C (normally open and normally closed) contacts. Each 4204CF module
adds two style-Y supervised Notification Appliance Circuits to the system. For 4204CF modules, only relays 1 or 3 on
each module can be programmed.
4204 and 4204CF relays may be used to trigger auxiliary fire functions such as air handler shutdown, elevator recall,
door-holder release, sound system shutdown, etc.
The relay module will not operate until the device address you have set the DIP switches for is enabled in the
control’s Device Programming in the #93 Menu Mode.
UL
• Relays should not re-energize until the panel is fully reset.
• For Commercial Fire installations, only one notification appliance module may be used, and only one
notification appliance output (A or B) may be used on that module in a single audible/visual area.
• If the 4204CF relay is enabled for a NAC, it must follow the action of the NAC on the panel.
• Relays (aux and 4204's) cannot be used for off-premises signaling
• In Commercial Fire installations, the 4204CF cannot be used to drive sounders in the same physical area as
sounders connected to the alarm outputs of the control panel.
• Output devices are not intended for overriding automatic building and fire functions.
To install the relay modules, see Figures 3-19 and 3-20 and perform the following steps:
Step
Action
1
Set the 4204 or 4204CF’s DIP switches for a device address 01-15.
Do not use an address being used by another device (keypads, RF receivers, etc.).
Mount the 4204 and 4204CF modules per the instructions provided with them.
Connect the module’s wire harness to the control (11, 12, 13 and 14). Plug the connector on the harness to
the module.
When mounting remotely, homerun each module to the control. The table below shows the maximum wire
run lengths. Refer to the instructions provided with the 4204CF for its maximum permissible wire lengths.

The 4101SN V-Plex Single Output Relay Module is a serial number polling loop output device. The 4101SN features the
following:
•
Form C relay contacts rated at 2A, 28VAC/VDC with contact supervision.
•
Can be used to trigger auxiliary fire functions such as air handler shutdown, elevator recall, door-holder release,
sound system shutdown, etc.
•
One class B/style B EOLR-supervised auxiliary input zone.
•

•
Electronics mounted in a small plastic case with tamper-protected cover.
42
•
•
•
If using ZONE # for the START of a polling loop output, and want the output to stop when the same zone
restores, the STOP programming must be blank.
No more than 20 polling loop outputs may be programmed for the same START or STOP condition in Output
Programming.
The position of the relay is supervised, but not the actual external contact wiring.
Connect the device to the polling loop, terminals 28 (+) and 29 (-). Be sure to observe polarity.
Installing a Remote Keyswitch
A UL-Listed remote keyswitch, such as the Honeywell 4146, can be used for remote arming/disarming of the burglary
part of the system and for silencing alarms. The keyswitch operates in only one particular partition.
ULC
Remote Arming is not a ULC Listed feature.
The keyswitch is wired across zone 7. This zone is no longer available as a protection zone. Make sure ∗15 is assigned to
part (1-9). This sets zone 7 to response type 05.
Operation
•
A momentary short arms the partition in the AWAY mode, and a short held for more than 10 seconds arms the
partition in STAY mode 1. A subsequent short disarms the partition.
•
The keyswitch LEDs indicate the partition’s status (see table that follows).
•
A momentary short silences Notification Appliance Circuits and keypad sounds, and disarms the system if it was
armed. A subsequent short clears the alarm memory indication and resets 2-wire smoke and glassbreak detectors (if
used).
•
The keyswitch can be used to silence fire alarms without disarming the burglary portion (program a “9” in field ∗15).
A momentary short silences alarm outputs only if a fire alarm is present.
UL
In Commercial Fire installations, mount the keyswitch next to the primary keypad on keypad port 2 (J4 header) and
wire in conduit within the same room as the control panel. The keypad displays the UL-required “ALARM
SILENCED” when the keyswitch is used to silence a fire alarm.

Keyswitch Tamper Operation
For UL Commercial Burglary installations, the tamper switch must be wired to zone 6, see Figure 3-22).
Program zone 6 for Day Trouble/Night Alarm (response type 5). When the keyswitch is removed from the wall, the
tamper switch opens, causing an alarm or trouble on the zone. This also causes the control to disable keyswitch
operation until the tamper is restored and the associated partition is disarmed.
43
Wiring for the Remote Keyswitch
To install the ADEMCO 4146 keyswitch, perform the following steps:
Step
Action
1
Connect the ADEMCO 4146 to the panel as shown in Figure 3-21.
2
If you are using the tamper, make sure it is connected to a zone.
Figure 3-21: Remote Keyswitch Wiring
Installing a Remote Keypad Sounder (For Commercial Burglary use only)
An optional Amseco PAL 328N Piezo Sounder can be used to duplicate the sounds produced by the keypad’s built-in
sounder. The remote sounder will duplicate all sounds (such as alarms, trouble beeps, etc.) except for the short beeps
associated with keypad key depression. One application of this feature would be to produce chime beeps at a distant
location from the keypads.
If used, program field 3∗20 must be set to “0” and field ∗15 must be set to the desired partition number.
The remote sounder must be connected to the Output 5 on the J2 connector as shown in Figure 3-22.
Figure 3-22: Remote Keypad Sounder Wiring
44
Communicators Connected to the ECP Bus
The control can support an IP or GSM communications device (7847i, GSMV/GSMHS, or IGSMV/IGSMHS) that
connects to control panel’s keypad terminals. All messages programmed for transmission via the phone lines may also
be sent via the communications device. These messages are transmitted in Contact ID format regardless of the format
programmed for the control in fields 45 and 47.
We recommend that, if possible, you use Contact ID for the main dialer. If Contact ID is not used, certain types
of reports are not sent.
ULC
For ULC fire installations, Contact ID is the only permitted format.
Supervision
The data lines between the control and the communications device, as well as certain functions in the Communicator,
can be supervised. If communication is lost or a trouble condition occurs, both the communications device and the
control’s dialer can be programmed to send a Trouble message to the central station.
NOTE: For complete information, see the Installation Instructions that accompany the Communicator.
Operation
The VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT features Dynamic Signaling Delay and Dynamic Signaling Priority
message reporting when a Communicator is used. These message outputs are accessed through data fields ∗56 and ∗57,
respectively. The Dynamic Signaling feature is designed to reduce the number of redundant reports sent to the central
station.
The feature is described as follows:
Dynamic Signaling Delay (Field ∗56)
Select the time the panel should wait for acknowledgment from the first reporting destination before it attempts to send
a message to the second destination. Delays can be selected from 0 to 225 seconds, in 15-second increments.
Dynamic Signaling Priority (Field ∗57)
Select the initial reporting destination for messages, Primary Dialer (0) or Communicator (1).
The chart below provides an explanation of how the Dynamic Signaling feature functions.
If Priority (∗57) And message is…
is…
Then…
Primary Phone Acknowledged before delay expires Message is removed from queue and no message is sent to
No. ("0")
communications device.
Not acknowledged before delay
expires
Communicator
("1")
Message is sent to both the Primary Phone No. and
communications device.
Acknowledged before delay expires Message is removed from queue and no message is sent to
Primary Phone No.
Not acknowledged before delay
expires
Message is sent to both the Primary Phone No. and
communications device.
Additional communications device reporting options are defined by selecting the events for each subscriber ID in fields
∗58 and ∗59. The reporting events are Alarms, Troubles, Bypasses, Openings/Closing, System Events, and Test. Also,
within an enabled category, the specific event must be enabled for dialer reporting. If, for instance, zone 10 is enabled to
report, but zone 11 is not, zone 10 will report via the communications device, but zone 11 will not.
Messages are transmitted from the VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT to the communications device on a “first in/first
out” basis. If events occur at the same time, they are transmitted in order of priority. The priority from most to least
important is : Fire Alarms, Panic Alarms, Burglary Alarms, Fire Troubles, Non-Fire Troubles, Bypasses,
Openings/Closings, Test messages, and all other types of reports.
There are two subscriber IDs programmed into the communications device: primary and secondary. These correspond to
the two subscriber IDs programmed into the control for each partition. If a subscriber ID for a partition is not
programmed (disabling reports to that central station), the events enabled for the corresponding subscriber ID in the
communications device will not be transmitted.

If the event is to be reported to both phone numbers (dual reporting), then reporting through the communications device
will be done in an alternating sequence. The first event in the queue is transmitted to both the primary and the
secondary Communicator central stations before transmitting the second event.
If split reporting is selected for the VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT, then the communications device will send the
appropriate reports to the primary and secondary central stations.
Installing the Communicator
To install the communications device, perform the following steps:
Step
Action
1
Mount the communicator according to the instructions that accompany the Communicator.
2
Connect the data in/out terminals and voltage input terminals of the communicator to the control’s keypad
connection points, terminals 11, 12, 13 and 14. See Figure 3-23.
Figure 3-23: Wiring Communicator to Keypad Terminals
Trouble Messages
The following messages are displayed on the 6160/6160CR-2 when a problem exists on the communications device:
1. “LRR Battery”: The battery connected to the Communicator is low.
2. “PLL out of Lock”: The Communicator has an internal fault and cannot transmit any messages.
3. “Early Power Detect”: RF power is detected without a valid transmission.
4. “Power Unattained”: Full RF power was never attained.
5. “Frwd. Power Loss”: RF power was not sustained throughout the transmission.
6. “Antenna Fault”: A problem with the antenna has been detected.
7. “LRR CRC is bad”: The communicator’s EEPROM is corrupt (the internal CRC is bad).
NOTES:
Items 2 and 3 require factory service.
Items 4 and 5 could be the result of a bad or low battery.
If the item 6 message appears, check the antenna, connection and cable; if they are secure, factory service is required.
All these messages are displayed in conjunction with the “CHECK 8xx” message, which indicates a trouble on the
address to which the communications device is programmed in the control.
All of these events except Antenna Fault are sent to the event log and reported to the central station using Contact ID
Event Code 333 (expansion device trouble). Antenna Fault uses Event Code 357. If the tamper is tripped, it uses Event
Code 341 (expansion device tamper).
Access Control Using VistaKey
The VistaKey is a single-door access control module. When connected to the alarm system, it provides access control to
the protected premises. The VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT panels support up to 15 modules (15 access points).
UL
The VistaKey module contains three zones. These zones should ONLY be used for access control functions in UL
installations. THESE INPUT ZONES ARE NOT TO BE USED AS FIRE OR BURGLARY ZONES.
VistaKey Features
•
•
•
Each VistaKey communicates with the VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT via the V-Plex polling loop.
If local power to the VistaKey is lost, the module provides backup monitoring of the access point door via a built-in
V-Plex device that is powered solely from the polling loop. The V-Plex device is programmed in the control’s Zone
Programming. A serial number label is affixed to the VistaKey module for manual entry of its serial number.
The VistaKey supports up to 250 cardholders for the VISTA-128FBPT and 500 cardholders for the VISTA-250FBPT.
46
All configurable options for each VistaKey are accomplished via software, firmware, and nonvolatile memory, except
the access point zone number (1-15), which is set via a user-friendly, 16-position rotary switch.
The addition and removal of VistaKey modules from the system is easily accomplished via the VISTA128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT keypad.
Each VistaKey provides one open-collector output trigger (sink 12mA @ 12VDC).

Connecting the Transformer
NOTE: Upon a total power failure, the control unit will ignore and not transmit alarm supervisory information for a
stabilization period of 120 seconds following restoration of power. Within 60 seconds at the end of the stabilization
period, the control unit shall initiate the transmission of a power restoration signal code. If this report code is enabled
(see report code programming in the Programming Guide), this is the report that will be sent.
To connect the 1451 transformer to the control, perform the following steps:
Step
Action
1
Remove the front cover of the enclosure.
2
Mount the enclosure to the wall near the VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT control panel. The enclosure has
four mounting holes on its back surface for this purpose.
3
Run 120VAC wiring to the enclosure in conduit. A dedicated circuit must be used.
4
Use wire nuts to splice the 120VAC wires to the transformer’s white and black primary leads.
5
Connect the earth ground post on the back of the enclosure to a good earth ground.
6
Run 16AWG wire in conduit from the enclosure to the control panel.
7
Use wire nuts to splice the transformer blue 18VAC secondary leads to the 16AWG wire. Connect the 16AWG
wire at the control panel to terminals 1 and 2.
8
Replace the front cover of the enclosure and fasten it with the screws supplied.
•
•
Use wires having insulation rated for at least 90°C operation and suitable for non-power limited applications.
Use care to keep 18VAC wiring separated from all other wiring inside the control panel’s enclosure. This must
be done by running non-power-limited 18VAC wiring into the control panel’s enclosure via one of the knockouts
on the left-hand side, and then tie-wrapping these wires to the tie-wrap loops located near the knockout.
Earth Ground Connections
In order for the lightning transient protective devices in this product to be effective, the designated earth ground
terminal (terminal 30) must be terminated in a good earth ground. Recommended wire gauge for the ground connection
is #16 AWG, run no farther than 30 feet.
The panel requires the earth ground connection for its lightning transient protection devices and in order to detect
Ground Fault conditions.
To connect the earth ground, perform the following steps:
Step
Action
1
Connect the earth ground post inside the 1451 enclosure to a good earth ground (use grounding methods
specified in the National Electric Code).
Use a green nut (supplied) to secure the wire to the ground post. The ground wire should be the only wire
under this nut.
Run a 16AWG wire from the ground post to the panel’s earth ground terminal (30). Use a second green nut
(supplied) to secure this wire to the ground post.
This connection avoids ground loops that may occur when the 1451 and panel are connected to different earth
ground systems.

Determining the Control’s Power Supply Load
In the event of an AC power loss the VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT and the Commercial Fire Listed 24VDC Power
Supply must be supported by backup, rechargeable batteries. When the system is used without a Commercial Fire
Listed 24VDC Power Supply, a 12VDC, 12AH to 34.4AH battery must be connected the control panel.
ULC
For ULC Commercial Fire Installations, only the 34.4AH (2 x 17.2AH) batteries have been evaluated.
For ULC Commercial Fire Installations, the batteries’ capacity must be sized for 24-hour Standby followed by a
30 minute Alarm.
If a Commercial Fire Listed 24VDC Power Supply is used, refer to its Installation Instructions for the appropriate
backup battery requirements.
50
The battery’s capacity must be sized to provide 24 hours (central station fire) followed by 5 minutes (fire only) or 15
minutes (fire and burglary) alarm time. Use only sealed lead-acid batteries with a minimum charging current handling
capacity of 1.8A.
Use the worksheets that follow to calculate the total current for Auxiliary Power 1, Auxiliary Power 2, Bell 1, Bell 2,
Polling Loop and the total current load of the control panel. In each worksheet, multiply each device’s standby and/or
alarm current by the number of units used.
Then, if you are using a Commercial Fire Listed 24VDC Power Supply, calculate the Total 24VDC Power Supply Load
using the Power Supply’s instructions, to determine the required capacity of the backup batteries that must be connected
If you are NOT using a Commercial Fire Listed 24VDC Power Supply, fill out the Battery Capacity Calculation
Worksheet, following the other worksheets below, to determine the required capacity for the backup battery. Select a
battery from the Battery Selection Table (found later in this section) that have a capacity greater than or equal to the
calculated capacity.
Battery Capacity must be able to satisfy the Standby and Alarm periods in the chart below dependant on Control Panel
usage.

batteries connected the Power supply. If you are using a Commercial Fire Listed 24VDC Power Supply use the
worksheet supplied with the power supply to determine the correct battery size.
Determining the Size of the Standby Battery
For burglary installations requiring 4-hour standby time followed by 15-minutes alarm time, use a 12AH battery to
support all loads up to and including the maximum system load (e.g., 1.3A standby/2.8A alarm total control panel load).
For fire installations requiring 24-hour standby time, use the worksheet below to calculate the required battery capacity.

Access Security
The following four levels of protection guard the control against compromise while it is being accessed from a remote
location:
1. Security code handshake: The subscriber’s account number as well as an 8-digit ID number (known only to the
office) must be matched between the control and computer.
2. Hang-up and callback: The control panel “hangs up” and calls the computer back at the pre-programmed number
only if the security codes match.
3. Data encryption: All data that is exchanged between the computer and control is encrypted to reduce the possibility
of anyone “tapping” the line and corrupting data.
57
4.
Operator access levels: Operators may be assigned various levels of access to the downloader, each having its own
log-on code. The access levels allow the operators read/write capabilities of the customers’ account information. For
a detailed explanation of the access levels, see the downloading software User Manual.
NOTES:
•
Each time the control panel is accessed successfully, a Callback Requested report is sent to the central station, if
Opening reports are programmed.
•
When the system is downloading, the keypad displays “MODEM COMM.”
•
After each download or save an automatic time stamp is done to indicate the last download (or save) and the
operator ID number.
•
A complete hard copy of each individual account can be obtained by connecting a printer to the computer. Refer to
your computer Owner’s Manual or contact your dealer for printer recommendations.
Unattended Download (For Burglary Use Only)
Unattended download allows the control panel to communicate with the download computer without an operator at the
computer. This feature is useful on new installations.
The installer can mount the control, attach a keypad and phone line, and continue to wire the rest of the installation
while the system is automatically downloaded.
If Compass has an account already created, and the panel is defaulted; the installer enters Code #89, enters the
unattended phone number, account number, primary phone number, and then triggers the unattended call. The panel
calls and connects to Compass; then Compass does an upload, followed by a download of the existing account data (if this
option has been selected at the station – otherwise Compass will disconnect).
If Compass does not have an account already created, and the panel is defaulted; the installer enters Code #89, enters
the unattended phone number, account number, primary phone number, and then triggers the unattended call. The
panel calls and connects to Compass; then Compass does an upload, and disconnects (if this option has been selected at
the station – otherwise Compass will download the default account data). A new account “??????-FFFF” will be created.
For unattended download to work, the Receiver Group and Primary Phone number have to be entered into Compass.
The following items must be programmed for unattended download:
•
The account number (field ∗32)
•
Primary central station telephone number (field ∗33)
•
The download telephone number (field ∗35)
•
Unattended Mode (enable in field ∗54.)
NOTE: The default for field ∗54 is enabled (1).
Getting On-Line with a Control Panel
At the protected premises, the control panel must be connected to the existing telephone line (refer to the SECTION 3:
Installing the Control). No programming of the panel is required before downloading to an initial installation unless you
are performing an unattended download.
When establishing a connection between the computer and the control panel, the following occurs:
Stage
What Happens
1
The computer calls up the control panel. (The phone number for each customer must be entered into the
customer’s account file on the computer.)
2
The control panel answers the phone call at the pre-programmed ring count and executes a handshake with
the computer.
3
The computer sends a request for callback to the control, unless callback is not required.
4
The panel acknowledges the request and hangs up. During the next few seconds, the control processes the
request, making sure certain encrypted information received from the computer matches its own memory.
5
Upon a successful match, the control panel seizes the phone line and calls the computer back, unless
callback is not required. (The phone number to which the computer’s modem is connected must be
programmed into the control field ∗35.)
6
The computer answers, usually by the second ring, and executes a handshake with the panel.
7
The panel then sends other default information to the computer. If this information matches the computer’s
information, a successful link is established. The system is now “on-line” with the computer.
58
•
•
Alarms and Trouble responses and reports are disabled during actual uploading or downloading sessions. If
you are on-line, but not actively uploading or downloading, all alarms report immediately. All other reports are
delayed until you complete the session.
The keypads remain active when on-line with a control, but are inactive during actual uploading or
downloading sessions.
To download a control without programming any information, perform the following steps:
Step
Action
1
Enter the Installer Code + [#] + [5]. The panel temporarily enables a ring count of 5 and sets the Download
Callback option to “1” (callback not required).
2
From the computer, call the panel using the downloader software set to “First Communication” Mode.
The downloader establishes a session with no callback. The panel information can then be downloaded.
On-Line Control Functions
The following functions can be performed while on-line with a control panel (see field ∗37):
•
Arm the system in the AWAY Mode; disarm the system
•
Bypass a zone
•
Force the system to accept a new program download
•
Shut down communication (dialer) functions (for nonpayment of monitoring fees in an owned system)
•
Shut down all security system functions (for nonpayment for a leased system)
•
Inhibit local keypad programming (prevents takeover of your accounts)
•
Leave a message for customer
NOTE: Messages sent to the control panel from the downloader will be viewable at ALL partitions.
•
Command the system to upload a copy of its resident program to the office

Direct-Wire Downloading
The VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT can be downloaded without using a modem or telephone line. The direct-wire
downloading connection is to be temporary, and is not part of the permanent installation. Direct-wire downloading is
meant as a tool for the installer during the installation process.
Telco Handoff
Telco handoff is another method of getting on-line with the downloader. The installer or customer enters the User Code
+ [#] + [1], while on the phone line with the computer’s modem phone line. The customer will get cut-off and the panel
and download computer will establish a connection.

Section 6: User Access Codes
• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
General Information
The VISTA-128FBPT system allows a total of 150 security access codes to be allocated. The VISTA-250FBPT allows a
total of 250 security access codes to be allocated. Each security access code is identified by a user ID number.
Regardless of the number of partitions each code has access to, it occupies only one user slot in the system.
If a particular code is not used in all partitions, that user ID number cannot be used again.
The Quick Arm feature can also be programmed (partition-specific program field ∗29). The Quick Arm feature allows the
user to arm the system by pressing the [#] key instead of the security code. The security code must always be entered to
disarm the system.
A user code other than the installer code must be programmed in order for the Quick Arm feature to function.
The system is shipped with the following defaults for the user codes:
User
4-Digit Code
Alpha Descriptor
User 1 (Installer)
5140
INSTLR
User 2
1234
MASTER
User Codes and Levels of Authority
Each user of the system can be assigned a level of authority, which authorizes the user for certain system functions. A
user can have different levels of authority within different partitions
Use the “View Capabilities” keypad function (User Code + [∗] + [∗]) to view the partitions and authority levels for
which a particular user is authorized. These levels are described below.
Level 0: Installer (User 1) Code
•
•
•
•
•
Programmed in field ∗00 (default = 5-1-4-0). Installer Open/Close reporting selected in field ∗39.
Can perform all system functions (arm, disarm, bypass, etc.), but cannot disarm if armed by another code (or by
Quick Arm).
Can add, delete, or change all other codes, and can select Open/Close reports for any user.
Is the only code that can be used to enter program mode. The Installer Code can be prevented from re-entering the
Program Mode by exiting using ∗98.
Must program at least one Master Code during initial installation. Master Codes are codes intended for use by the
primary user(s) of the system.
Level 1: Master Codes
•
Can perform all normal system functions.
•
Can be used to assign up to 248 lower-level codes, which can be used by other users of the system.
•
Cannot assign anybody a level of 0 or 1.
•
May change their code.
•
Can add, delete, or change Manager or Operator Codes. Each user’s code can be individually eliminated or changed
at any time.
•
Open/Close reporting is automatically the same as that of the Master who is adding the new user.
Level 2: Manager Codes
•
Can perform all system functions (arm, disarm, bypass, etc.) programmed by Master.
•
May add, delete, or change other users of the system below this level (Manager cannot assign anybody a level of 0, 1,
or 2).
•
May change their code.
•
Open/Close reporting is automatically the same as that of the Manager who is adding the new user.
63
Levels 3-5: Operator Codes
•
Can operate a partition, but cannot add or modify any user code (see table below).
Level
3
4
5
•
Title
Operator A
Operator B
Operator C
Functions Permitted
Arm, Disarm, Bypass Burg Zones
Arm, Disarm
Arm, Disarm only if armed with same code
Operator C (sometimes known as the Babysitter Code) cannot disarm the system unless the system was armed with
that code. This code is usually assigned to persons who may need to arm and disarm the system at specific times
only (e.g., a babysitter needs to control the system only when babysitting).
Level 6: Duress Codes
•
Sends a silent alarm to a central monitoring station if the user is being forced to disarm (or arm) the system under
threat (system must be connected to a central station).
•
Assigned on a partition-by-partition basis, and can be any code or codes desired.
Duress Reporting NOTE: A non-zero report code for zone 992 (duress) must be programmed, and partition-specific
field ∗85 duress location enabled, to enable Duress reporting.
•
The Duress report-triggering logic activates on the 5th key depression (such as OFF), not the 4th key depression (last
digit of code). Duress reports are not triggered if the 5th key is a [∗], such as when you perform a GOTO or view the
capabilities of a user.
General Rules on Authority Levels and Changes
The following rules apply to users when making modifications within the system based on the user code authority levels:
•
Master Codes and all lower-level codes can be used interchangeably when performing system functions within a partition (a system
armed with a user’s temporary code can be disarmed with the Master Code or another user’s temporary code), except the Operator Level
C Code described above.
•
A user may not delete or change the user code of the SAME or HIGHER authority than that which he is assigned.
•
A user (levels 0, 1 and 2 only) may only ADD users to a LOWER authority level.
•
A user may assign other users access to only those partitions to which he himself has access.
•
A user code can be DELETED or CHANGED only from within the partition it was created in.
•
User numbers must be entered in 3 digits. Single-digit user numbers must, therefore, always be preceded by a “00” (e.g., 003, 004, 005,
etc.). Make sure the end user understands this requirement. Temporary codes are entered as 4-digit numbers.
Open/Close Reporting Note: When a user is added, the system prompts for Open/Close reporting capability only if the
installer is adding the new user. When a Master or Manager adds a new user, the new user’s Open/Close reporting is
the same as that of the Master or Manager who is adding the user. If Open/Close reports are required to be selectable by
the Master or Manager, the Installer should assign two Master or Manager user codes: one with Open/Close reporting
enabled, and one without.
Note that Open/Close reporting of Quick Arm is enabled if User 002 is enabled for Open/Close reporting, and that Quick
Arm reports as User 000. In order for Quick Arm reports to be sent for all partitions, User 002 must have authority and
Open/Close must be enabled for all partitions. If a code with access to all partitions is not desired, it is suggested that
user 002 be assigned authority level 5 in all partitions, and that the code be kept secret. Authority level 5 cannot disarm
the system unless armed by that user.
ADEMCO Contact ID format is capable of reporting Users 001-150 uniquely. If any other report format is used,
only user numbers 001 – 015 can uniquely report to the central station. Users 016 – 150 will report as User 015.
Multiple Partition Access
Each user is programmed for a primary (home) partition. A user can also be given access to operate one or more
additional partitions. Within each partition, each user may be programmed to have different levels of authority. For
example, User 003, the VP of Engineering, could be assigned to work within the Engineering Department (Partition 1) of
ABC Manufacturing. Because he needs the full capabilities in his area, he is assigned as a MASTER with Level 1
authority.
He must also be able to gain access to the manufacturing area (Partition 2) on an emergency basis. You can set this up
easily by requesting that he also be assigned to Partition 2, with a level of authority set lower, such as Level 4
(OPERATOR Level B).
64
The control automatically assigns him the same user number within Partition 2.

In the above example, User 3 has MASTER authority in Partition 1 and OPERATOR B authority in Partition 2. His
user number is the same for both partitions. Note that if a user number is already being used in a partition, the system
will automatically assign a new user an unused number. Also notice that no access is allowed for this user into
Partitions 3 through 8. Attempts to access these partitions would be denied automatically.
Adding a Master, Manager, or Operator Code
During user code entry, normal key depressions at other keypads in a partition are ignored. However, panic key
depression causes an alarm and terminates user entry.
Enter Installer Code + [8] + new user no. (002-250) + new user’s code Or Master or Manager Code, but the code must be
a higher level of authority than the code being changed (e.g., a Manager Code can add an Operator-level Code, but
cannot add a Master or another Manager Code). Keypad prompts for the authority level for this user.
NOTE: All references to the number of user codes pertain to the VISTA-250FBPT. The VISTA-128FBPT allows only 150
user codes.
PROMPT
User Number = 003
Enter Auth. Level
EXPLANATION
Enter the level number as follows:
1 = Master
2 = Manager

0=NO , 1=YES
If a 5800 Series button transmitter has been enabled for arming/disarming functions, and is not
assigned to a user, this prompt appears.
Press 0 (NO) or 1 (YES). Not used in Commercial Burg and Commercial Fire.
Multi-Access ?
0 = NO , 1 = YES
Press 0 (NO) if the user is to have access to this partition only. Press 1 (YES) if the user is to
have access to more than one partition. If NO, the program exits this mode. If YES, the keypad
prompts for the Global Arm option for this user.
65
PROMPT
EXPLANATION
Global Arm ?
0 = NO , 1 = YES
Press 0 (NO) or 1 (YES), depending on whether this user will be allowed to arm more than one
partition via Global Arm prompts (described in the VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT User
Guide).
The keypad now prompts for the user’s access to the next partition.
Part. 2 – SHOP ?
0 = NO , 1 = YES
Press 0 (NO) or 1 (YES), depending on whether this user will have access to the displayed
partition number. If NO, the keypad displays this prompt for the next partition number in
sequence.
If YES, the keypad prompts for the following:
•
User’s authority level in the displayed partition (see Authority Level prompt above).
•
Open/Close option for this user in the displayed partition (see Open/Close prompt above).
•
Global Arm option for this user in the displayed partition.
When all partitions have been displayed, the keypad will scroll through all partitions to which
access has been assigned, and will display the user number, authority level, open/close and
global arm options that were programmed for each partition to which the user was granted
access. For example:
Part. 1 A0* WHSE
User 003 Auth=3G.
Note that the “G” following the authority level indicates that the global arm feature is enabled for
this user in the displayed partition, and that the period at the end of the second line indicates
Open/Close reporting is enabled for this user in the displayed partition. The “*” indicates the
partition from which the user may be changed or deleted.
Changing a Master, Manager, or Operator Code
Enter Installer Code*+ [8] + new user no. (002-250) + new user’s code
*Or Master or Manager Code, but the code must be a higher level of authority than the code being changed (e.g. a
Manager Code can add an Operator-level Code, but cannot add a Master or another Manager Code).
NOTE: The VISTA-128FBPT allows only 150 user codes.
PROMPT
EXPLANATION
User Number = 003
NEW USER?
The system detects that the user number is already assigned, and prompts if this is a new user.
Press 0 (NO).
The system then confirms that the change is allowed based on authorization level.
Deleting a Master, Manager, or Operator Code
Enter your code*+ [8] + new user no. (002-250) + your code again
*Or Master or Manager Code, but the code must be a higher level of authority than the code being changed (e.g. a
Manager Code can add an Operator-level Code, but cannot add a Master or another Manager Code).
NOTE: The VISTA-128FBPT allows only 150 user codes.
PROMPT
EXPLANATION
OK TO DELETE 003?
0=NO
1=YES
The system prompts to confirm that you want to delete this user. Press 0 (NO) or 1 (YES).
If you answered “yes,” that user’s code is removed from all partitions to which it was assigned,
and all authorization levels and other information about that user are deleted. Note that a user
can be deleted only by a user with a higher authority level. A user cannot self delete.
A user code can be deleted only from the partition through which it was entered. If an attempt is made to
delete from another partition, the message “User [XXX] Not Deleted” is displayed.

• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
Battery Test
When AC power is present, the VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT runs a brief battery test every 60 seconds to
determine if there is a battery connected, and runs an extended battery test every 4 hours to check on the battery’s
condition.
If the VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT finds that the battery voltage is low (less than approximately 11.5V), it
initiates a keypad “SYSTEM LOBAT” display and a rapid keypad beeping sound. It also sends a Low Battery report to
the central station (if programmed). The keypad is cleared by entering any security code + OFF, and a Restore report is
sent to the central station if the situation has been corrected.
Dialer Test
The VISTA-128FBPT/VISTA-250FBPT may be programmed to automatically transmit test reports to a central station at
intervals ranging from once per hour to once per 9999 hours (field ∗27).
Commercial Fire Alarms and Commercial Burglary requires the test report to be transmitted at least once every 24
hours. The system can be programmed to send the first report at any time of the day, or on any day of the week (field
∗83).
Fire Drill Test (Code + [#] + 69)
This test activates fire Notification Appliance Circuits for the purpose of conducting a fire drill or bell test. This test can
only be activated by the installer or master users from partition 1 keypads by entering the corresponding security code +
[#] + 69. The burglary portion of the system must be disarmed.
Keypads display “FIRE DRILL ACTIVE” while the test is active. The test is stopped by entering any user code + OFF.
The system continues to monitor all 24-hour type zones (fire, panic, etc.) and ends the test if any of these zone types
produce an alarm condition.
NOTE: When code + #69 fire Drill test is active, these zones if programmed will be disabled.
This test should be conducted at periodic intervals, as determined by the local authority having jurisdiction.
One-Man Fire Walk-Test (Code + [#] + 68)
This test causes the system to sound console beeps and Notification Appliance Circuit dings in response to fire zone
faults (zone type 9, 16 and 17) for the purpose of allowing proper zone operation to be checked without triggering alarms.
Note that the system will not be operational as an alarm system (i.e., cannot sense alarms) while this test is active. The
test can only be activated by the installer by entering the Installer’s Code and pressing [#] + 68 while the burglary
portion of the system is disarmed.
This test should be conducted at periodic intervals, as determined by the local authority having jurisdiction.
When testing non-latching devices, such as heat detectors, be sure to keep the device faulted until the system
responds with the keypad beep or siren sound. If the device is faulted only momentarily, the system may not
respond to the fault.
When this test is first activated, the system will display:
PROMPT
EXPLANATION
USE BELL DING?
Enter 1 (YES) to have the fire Notification Appliance Circuits associated with each point sound for 3 seconds
when a point is faulted.
Enter 0 (NO) if only keypad sounders are desired.
The next prompt will be displayed.
0=NO
1=YES
AUTO-TEST DET?
0=NO
1=YES
Enter 1 (YES) to have the system automatically test all polling loop points with a fire response type 9 or 16.
Other fire zones will have to be tested manually.
Enter 0 (NO) to test every point manually.
The next prompt will be displayed.
69
For true detector sensitivity tests, and for compliance with fire codes, you must enter 0 (NO) to this question.
PROMPT
EXPLANATION
LOG RESULTS?
Enter 1 (YES) to have the system log each point as it is tested. A list of untested points will also be logged.
Enter 0 (NO) if you do not want to log the results.
The next prompt will only be displayed if Contact ID report format has been selected.
0=NO
1=YES
C.S. TRANSMIT?
0=NO
1=YES
Enter 1 (YES) to have the results of the test sent to the central station. This report will consist of a list of
points that have been tested followed by a list of points that have not been tested.
Enter 0 (NO) if you do not want to report the results. A Walk-Test Start and Walk-Test End report will be
sent in either case (if programmed).
When the Test Mode is activated, the system will sound fire Notification Appliance Circuits (or any NAC having a nonzero response type programmed in the #93 Menu Mode) for 3 seconds. The system will also send a Start of Walk-Test
message to the central station, and will light the Ready, Power and Fire Trouble indicators and display window
segments to verify that they are working properly. The keypads will then display Fire Walk-Test in Progress and will
sound a single beep every 15 seconds while this test is active. Additionally, in this test mode RF receiver sensitivity is
reduced to 50% to ensure proper fire RF device mounting locations.
The system will build a list of all the fire zones (response types 9, 16, 17, 18) that need to be tested. These points will be
scrolled on the display. For each point, the keypad will display “UNTST XXX,” where XXX is the point number, followed
by an alpha descriptor for the point.
If the auto-test option has been selected, the control panel will attempt to automatically test all of the polling loop points
that have a zone response type of 9 or 16. For points that must be manually tested, fault and reset each fire alarm
sensor in turn.
Each action should cause keypads to beep and fire Notification Appliance Circuits to ding. The keypads will display the
zone number and the associated alpha descriptor while the zone remains faulted. The system automatically issues a
smoke detector power reset about 10 seconds after it finds a fault on one of these zones, to allow faulted detectors to be
reset.
The system will automatically perform the smoke detector reset on zones 1 and 2, if programmed for fire, and on
the auxiliary relay and any other output device (relay) that is programmed for smoke detector reset.
To end the test, enter any security code and press OFF. An End of Walk-Test message will be sent to the central station
(if programmed). Note that the test will automatically end if no faults are detected within a 1-hour time period.
Burglary Walk-Test
This test causes the system to sound keypad beeps in response to faults on zones for the purpose of allowing proper zone
operation to be checked without triggering alarms. This test can be activated by any user by entering the corresponding
security code and pressing TEST while the burglary portion of the system is disarmed. UL requires that this test be
conducted on a weekly basis.
When this test is first entered, the system activates the alarm output for 3 seconds. The system sends a Start of WalkTest message to the central station. The keypad displays “Burg Walk Test in Progress” and sounds a single beep every
15 seconds while the test remains active.
Open and close each protected door and window in turn. Each action should produce three beeps from the keypad. Walk
in front of any motion detectors. Listen for three beeps when the detector senses movement. The keypad displays the
zone number and alpha descriptor while a door or window remains open or while a detector remains activated.
To end this test, enter any security code and press OFF. An End of Walk-Test message is sent to the central station.
The system automatically exits the Test mode if there is no activity (no doors or windows are opened and
closed, no motion detectors are activated, etc.) for 60 minutes. The system beeps the keypad(s) twice every 5
seconds during the last 5 minutes as a warning that it is about to exit the Test mode and return to normal
operation.
70
Walk Testing the ‘Smart’ V-Plex Motion Detectors
Normally, in the test mode, the LED on the ‘Smart’ V-Plex Motion Detectors like the DT7500SN and IS2500SN is
disabled. In order to have the LED illuminate during the test mode, the PIR zone number must be entered into the
system’s test memory. To do this, once in the Walk Test Mode enter [3-digit zone number] + [#].
To remove a zone from the system’s test memory, enter [3-digit zone number] + [∗].
NOTES:
1 beep indicates a correct zone number entry.
2 beeps indicate an incorrect entry.
The system’s test memory capacity is 5 zones.
When the test mode is exited the system’s test memory is cleared.
Armed Burglary System Test
•
•
Alarm messages are sent to the central station during the armed tests. Notify the central station that a test will
be in progress.
A display of “COMM FAILURE” indicates a failure to communicate (no kissoff by the receiver at the central
station). If this occurs, verify that the phone line is connected, the correct report format is programmed, etc.
To perform an armed burglary test, proceed as follows:
Step
Action
1
Notify the central station that a test of the system is being performed.
2
Arm the system.
3
Fault one or more zones.
4
Silence alarm sounder(s) each time by entering the code and pressing OFF.
NOTE: The system must be rearmed after each code + off sequence.
5
Check that entry/exit delay zones provide the assigned delay times.
6

Testing Wireless Transmitters
Transmitter ID Sniffer Mode
Use the Transmitter Sniffer Mode to test that transmitters have all been properly programmed.
If a transmitter does not have its serial number “enrolled,” it will not turn off its zone number.
To enter the Transmitter ID Sniffer Mode, proceed as follows:
Step
Action
1
Enter Installer Code + [#] + [3]. The keypad displays all zone numbers of wireless units programmed into
the system.
2
Fault each wireless zone, causing each device to transmit.
As the system receives a signal from each of the transmitters, the zone number of that transmitter
disappears from the display.
3
Enter Installer Code + OFF to exit the Sniffer Mode.
71
Go/No Go Test Mode (For Burglary Use Only)
This mode assists in determining good mounting locations, and that the RF transmission has sufficient signal amplitude
margin for the installed system.
All partitions with wireless transmitters must be placed in the test mode for RF receiver sensitivity reduction
(50%). Otherwise, the RF receiver remains at full strength.
Make sure that all partitions are disarmed for this test.
•
•
To enter the Go/No Go Test Mode, proceed as follows:
Step
Action
1
2
Enter Installer Code + [5].
Fault each wireless transmitter, causing each device to transmit.
The keypad will beep three times if the signal is received.

THE LIMITATIONS OF THIS ALARM SYSTEM
While this System is an advanced wireless security system, it does not offer guaranteed protection against burglary, fire or
other emergency. Any alarm system, whether commercial or residential, is subject to compromise or failure to warn for a variety of reasons. For example:
• Intruders may gain access through unprotected openings or have the technical sophistication to bypass an alarm sensor or
disconnect an alarm warning device.
• Intrusion detectors (e.g., passive infrared detectors), smoke detectors, and many other sensing devices will not work without power. Battery-operated devices will not work without batteries, with dead batteries, or if the batteries are not put in
properly. Devices powered solely by AC will not work if their AC power supply is cut off for any reason, however briefly.
• Signals sent by wireless transmitters may be blocked or reflected by metal before they reach the alarm receiver. Even if
the signal path has been recently checked during a weekly test, blockage can occur if a metal object is moved into the path.
• A user may not be able to reach a panic or emergency button quickly enough.
• While smoke detectors have played a key role in reducing residential fire deaths in the United States, they may not activate or provide early warning for a variety of reasons in as many as 35% of all fires, according to data published by the
Federal Emergency Management Agency. Some of the reasons smoke detectors used in conjunction with this System may
not work are as follows. Smoke detectors may have been improperly installed and positioned. Smoke detectors may not
sense fires that start where smoke cannot reach the detectors, such as in chimneys, in walls, or roofs, or on the other side
of closed doors. Smoke detectors also may not sense a fire on another level of a residence or building. A second floor detector, for example, may not sense a first floor or basement fire. Finally, smoke detectors have sensing limitations. No
smoke detector can sense every kind of fire every time. In general, detectors may not always warn about fires caused by
carelessness and safety hazards like smoking in bed, violent explosions, escaping gas, improper storage of flammable
materials, overloaded electrical circuits, children playing with matches, or arson. Depending on the nature of the fire
and/or location of the smoke detectors, the detector, even if it operates as anticipated, may not provide sufficient warning
to allow all occupants to escape in time to prevent injury or death.
• Passive Infrared Motion Detectors can only detect intrusion within the designed ranges as diagrammed in their
installation manual. Passive Infrared Detectors do not provide volumetric area protection. They do create multiple beams
of protection, and intrusion can only be detected in unobstructed areas covered by those beams. They cannot detect motion
or intrusion that takes place behind walls, ceilings, floors, closed doors, glass partitions, glass doors, or windows.
Mechanical tampering, masking, painting or spraying of any material on the mirrors, windows or any part of the optical
system can reduce their detection ability. Passive Infrared Detectors sense changes in temperature; however, as the
ambient temperature of the protected area approaches the temperature range of 90° to 105°F (32° to 40°C), the detection
performance can decrease.
• Alarm warning devices such as sirens, bells or horns may not alert people or wake up sleepers if they are located on the
other side of closed or partly open doors. If warning devices are located on a different level of the residence from the bedrooms, then they are less likely to waken or alert people inside the bedrooms. Even persons who are awake may not hear
the warning if the alarm is muffled by noise from a stereo, radio, air conditioner or other appliance, or by passing traffic.
Finally, alarm warning devices, however loud, may not warn hearing-impaired people.
• Telephone lines needed to transmit alarm signals from a premises to a central monitoring station may be out of service or
temporarily out of service. Telephone lines are also subject to compromise by sophisticated intruders.
• Even if the system responds to the emergency as intended, however, occupants may have insufficient time to protect themselves from the emergency situation. In the case of a monitored alarm system, authorities may not respond appropriately.
• This equipment, like other electrical devices, is subject to component failure. Even though this equipment is designed to
last as long as 20 years, the electronic components could fail at any time.
The most common cause of an alarm system not functioning when an intrusion or fire occurs is inadequate maintenance. This
alarm system should be tested weekly to make sure all sensors and transmitters are working properly. The security keypad
(and remote keypad) should be tested as well.
Wireless transmitters (used in some systems) are designed to provide long battery life under normal operating conditions.
Longevity of batteries may be as much as 4 to 7 years, depending on the environment, usage, and the specific wireless device
being used. External factors such as humidity, high or low temperatures, as well as large swings in temperature, may all
reduce the actual battery life in a given installation. This wireless system, however, can identify a true low battery situation,
thus allowing time to arrange a change of battery to maintain protection for that given point within the system.
Installing an alarm system may make the owner eligible for a lower insurance rate, but an alarm system is not a substitute
for insurance. Homeowners, property owners and renters should continue to act prudently in protecting themselves and
continue to insure their lives and property. We continue to develop new and improved protection devices. Users of alarm
systems owe it to themselves and their loved ones to learn about these developments.
