How to activate multiple auxiliary relays on Area Wide or Panel Wide Events.
Programming Area Wide or Panel Wide Relays will only allow a single relay entry. Use an auxiliary relay such as the D130, D133 or D134 when multiple relays are needed to energize on a panel event.
How to address SDI2 devices without causing address conflicts.
Can different types of SDI2 devices use the same address setting?

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.
