Note: The web browser configuration is only required when connecting to the SDI or Option bus type panels. B-Series or GV4 panels normally connect the IP communicator to the SDI-2 bus and are configured using panel programming.
Note: When having trouble connecting to the Web Browser it may be necessary to change the web browser configuration so that it does not use a proxy server. Refer to the browser’s online help for instructions on disabling proxy service.
Set the address switch correctly for the panel type.
SDI panel types: Switch address 4 (address 88).
Option bus panel types: Switch address 9 (address 250).
Connect the IP Communicator to the panel;
SDI bus panel types: Use either the 4-pin molex connector or a 4-conductor wire landed on terminals 29-32.
Option bus panel types: Use a 4-conductor wire landed on option bus connections R/B/G/Y.
Open an internet browser (Microsoft Internet Explorer 6 or higher, or Mozilla Firefox 3 or higher) and connect to the IP communicator using the default IP address: 254.1.1 (or a previously configured IP address) and press [Enter]. The B426’s Login page opens (see below).
Enter the password (default: B42V2) and click Login. The Device Information home page opens. Check for current firmware version (figure 5). The firmware download is located at; http://us.boschsecurity.com/ under Catalog>Intrusion Alarm Systems>Conettix Communicators.
