How to determine the values to enter for the Poll Rate and Ack Wait Time.
Note: The calculation described is only be required on legacy control panels. The B8512G/B9512G and GV4 types only need a Receiver Supervision Time selection. The Poll Rate, Ack Wait and Retry count will automatically populate.
The formula for determining Poll Rate and Ack Wait Time is as follows:
Panel setting: Poll Rate + Ack Wait + ( Retry Count X Ack Wait)
Receiver setting: Panel Poll + Ack Wait
Panel setting = Receiver setting
Example: Panel Setting: Poll Rate = 240; Ack Wait = 10; Retry Count = 5 Panel setting: 240+10+ (5 X 10) = 300
Receiver Settings: Poll = 240; Ack = 60 Receiver setting: 240 + 60 = 300
300 = 300 Refer to the the following site for more information on setting up Conettix Devices

What are the enviromental considerations for the proper operation of the Bosch control/communicators?
Relative Humidity 5% to 85% noncondensing at +86 degrees Fahrenheit (+30 degrees Celsius).
Operating temperature would be +32 degrees Fahrenheit to +120 degrees Fahrenheit ( 0 degrees Celsius to 49 degrees Celsius ).
