3. The Point Type, Circuit Style and Point response are the primary settings which define the panel’s behavior. Access the available settings by double-clicking on the Point Type/Response/Circuit Style field (see figure 2).

4. Point Type: The Point Type determines how the panel behaves when the point changes state. For example, points may always be armed or follow an area arming state. The point may generate a Fire, Gas or Burglar type of event or even arm or disarm an area with their change in normal, open or shorted state. A number of point types are available and programming instructions are available by pressing F1 on a selected field. Point types can be broken down into the following groups;
5. Circuit Style: Provides programming options to match the wiring configuration used to supervise the point. Select the end of line supervision and with the optional Tamper response for devices with a tamper switch.
6. Circuit Style wiring diagram: The Point Type/Response/Circuit Style display provides a wiring diagram for the EOL (end of line) resistor configuration. Three wiring diagrams are possible and the one which displays depends on the selection for Circuit Style. The displayed diagram provides a visual representation of the supervision circuit to assist with selecting a point response in the next step of programming.

7. Point Response Tables: A point response of 0-9 or A-F is selected from a table in the Point Type/Response/Circuit Style Several tables are possible and the one displayed is determined by selections for Point Type and Circuit Style.
