To program the AFP on-site...
It is assumed that the fire panel has been previously switched on, has been fully tested and that a successful loop learn has
been executed. It is pointless continuing if there are wiring faults or the fire panel is not functioning correctly.
The next procedure has to be conducted with the fire panel open and with the mains on, extreme care must always
be taken. This operation must only ever be conducted by suitably qualified and trained personnel. The Fire Panel
must never be left unattended whilst open. When this operation has been completed, the panel cover must always
be re-secured.
Connect the Programming Lead to the RS232 connector in the Fire Panel first. Then connect the D-type connector into an
available serial port on the computer.
