How to address SDI2 devices without causing address conflicts.
Can different types of SDI2 devices use the same address setting?
B810, RFRP-A, B820, B208, B308, B420, B426, B520, B920, B921C, B930, B942.
Overview: Internal testing has found that if a D9210B (version 1.08 firmware) is currently in the energized state and a Reset is performed on the panel (manual reset using the reset switch or a Reset-Bye using RAM/RPS), the D9210B may deenergize the Lock Relay after a 30-minute delay. This is due to a firmware issue in the D9210B.
After manual reset, the lock output denergizes after 30 minutes. What causes this?
Overview: Bosch Security Systems D113 Battery Lead Supervision Module provides supervision of the battery lead connection between the module and one or two batteries in a 12 VDC system. The D113 meets NFPA 72 requirements for Battery Lead Supervision for Fire Alarm Panels.
When is a D113 module needed?
When a fire panel is using more than 1 backup battery for back up power and or when using more than 1 battery and battery supervision is required or wanted for the system.
Note: August 2001 Release Notes
Affects: D113 Installation Manual (P/N: 74-07468-000-B) Avoid Short Circuits - Short circuits on the charger wiring between the D113 and the control panel will damage the D113 module. To prevent damage to the module or panel, and possible personal injury, avoid shorting any control panel battery wiring.
Battery Fault Signaling - There are two ways that the D113 signals a fault condition: with the supervisory output connected to the zone input of a panel and through the charger wires from the panel. As long as the D113 module is properly receiving power to operate, it will indicate faults using the supervisory output. If the D113 loses power (for example, batteries are connected backwards), the supervisory output may restore and be replaced by a battery fault that is detected through the charger leads. A restoral on the zone input, which is replaced by a control panel battery fault, indicates total failure of the battery system.

Trouble connecting to the D4412 with RPS / RAM IV using the DX4010i.
What dip switches need to be set to make the DX4010i connect to the panel?
What type of cable is needed between the DX4010i and the Laptop or PC?
RAMIV / RPS needs to be revision 3.6 or higher.
Set the address 0 (Installer's mode) Dip Switches 6 and 8 in the off postion on the DX4010i.
Use a NULL cable to connect the DX4010i to the Laptop or PC.
For remote programming connection, use the RJ-16 to molex connector to the Aux / Data header.
Lock the Installer or Reset Pin on the panel.
In the RSP/ RAMIV Connection screen change the connection type from MODEM to ENHANCED DIRECT, then click connect.
*If connected to a D4412 panel and the address is set wrong on the DX4010i then a message of "INVALID RAM PASSCODE" may be generated.
How to determine correct wiring with between the DS7420i and different DS7400 panel types.
Is the wiring configuration between the DS7420i and DS7400 panel different than with the DS7400Xi?
How can I tell if the D168 will work with my control?
There are 3 items that are important when determining if it will be fully compatible with the control that is in question.
1. The control must provide a 12 volt dc aux power source to the D168A.
2. The control must have the ability to program a point as a keyswitch point. This only applies if you want to arm/disarm through the phone. Otherwise, you will just get arm/disarmed status. The keyswitch point can be programmed as momentary or maintained.
3. The control must have the ability to program a trigger that will trip and stay tripped when the system is armed.
How is a code changed on the 251 arming station when used with a 3012 control/communicator?
Place J10 in lower enable position , then press blank key once, then enter old code once, new 4 digit code twice. Test new code by arming and disarming.
Testing the DX4010i and D9133DC operation and communication using HyperTerminal.
HyperTerminal can be used to verify that the DX4010i is communicating over the serial port to another serial device. This is a good test to perform if running into problems connecting a control panel to PC9000, Readykey Pro or Crestron using the DX4010i. This process has been broken up into four steps; panel setup, device configuration, pc serial port configuration, and HyperTerminal Setup.
Note: You must use a Null Modem Serial Cable when connecting the DX4010i to serial devices; Computer, PC9000, ReadyKey Pro, and Crestron.
Panel setup: Receive a copy of RADXAUX1 with the D5200 or RPS/RAMIV. Move to the SDI Automation section of RADXAUX1. Set Enable SDI Automation to Yes. Under SDI Automation also set Status Rate to 20.
Device Configuration: Disconnect the DX4010i from the SDI bus. Lock the Reset Pin down. Set the DX4010i to Address 80 by setting address switches 1-4 to on and 5-8 to off. Connect the DX4010i to SDI bus. Remove the cover from DX4010i. Place the jumper over the P2 pins labelled LED Enable. Lift and unlatch the Reset Pin on the panel. Wait 1 minute for the DX4010i to initialize. Once the DX4010i has initialized you will see activity on the BUS LED’s.
PC Serial Port Configuration: Open device manager. Windows XP/2000 users go to Start, choose Settings then Control Panel. Double click on the System icon. On the System Properties window select the Hardware tab at the top. Press the Device Manager button. Find Ports and select the + symbol to the left to expand the ports section. Double click on com 1. The com 1 properties page will open. Select the port settings tab at the top. Verify the port settings. Bits per second should be set to 9600, Data Bits to 8, Parity to None, Stop Bits to 1, and Flow Control to None. Press OK and close the device manager.
HyperTerminal Setup: Press the Start button, select Programs, choose Accessories, choose Communications and then select HyperTerminal. HyperTerminal will open, give the session a name and press OK. On the "Connect to" screen select the drop down box for Connect Using. Select Com 1 from the list. You will now see the port settings window for HyperTerminal. Set Bits per Second to 9600, Data Bits to 8, Parity to None, Stop Bits to 1, and Flow Control to None. Click Apply then press OK.
If you have followed these instructions should now see data populating the screen from the panel.
How is point expansion configured, addressed and wired on the D6112 panel?
1.) Install the First Device to the D6112 control by connecting one of the two White leads to terminal 11 (Data- first device). The Black lead will land on terminal 14 (common) and the Red on terminal 15 (+ 12Vdc). This device will be programmed as DEVICE 1.
2.) Install the Second Device to the D6112 control by connecting one of its White leads to the remaining White lead from Device 1. The Black and Red leads of the second device will connect to Common and +12Vdc respectively. This device will be programmed as DEVICE 2.
3.) Each additional device will be installed by connecting its White wire to the previous device remaining white wire until the last device. The remaining White wire on the last device will connect to the D6112 control terminal 13 (Data- last device).
1.) Go to the Devices Module part of the D6112 handler and on line 4.1 Device#, select 1 for the first device.
a) On line 2 D1 Model, select the device model code (1=D610/611, 2=D620/D626, 3=D630/D636A, 4=D640) that pertains to the first device.
2.) Continue by selecting 2 on line 4.1 Device# for the second device and on line 4.2 D1 Model, enter that device model code. Continue until all devices are programmed.
3.) Address the points according to the device they are expanded off of. The zone location is comprised of the Device model code and the zone. The zones are identified by letter starting with A for the first zone and counting up alphabetically.
a) Onboard zones 1-8 use a device code of 0 and are addressed as 0A-0H.
b) Zones 9 and up would be addressed 1A, 1B and so on.
Note: It is not required that zones 1-16 be located on any particular device or in any particular order. It is advisable that the system be laid out in a logical order for future reference.
