Points are faulted but the panel does not react.
Points must be faulted for 500 milliseconds minimum.
*When using self resetting devices, some do not latch the contact in the faulted position but do show a fault trip via a latched LED.
How does the FIRE TEST COMMAND 58 feature function?
• Use this function to test fire points and other 24-hour points to be certain they function properly. You can review both the tested and untested points at your command center to help pinpoint any problems.
• Upon initiation, the fire test will test the fire bell pattern on the bell output and ring the command center fire bell for 2 seconds. The AC will be disabled for 4 minutes in order to test the system’s battery power. If the battery cannot maintain the system for the 4 minute period, the command center will appear to go dead. If this happens, contact your security company. At the end of the 4 minute period, AC is returned to the system and the panel restores. A message will be sent to your security company upon initiation and completion of the Fire Test. During the Fire Test, no 24-hour alarms will be sent to your security company.
• If there is no activity on the system for 20 minutes, the system will automatically exit from the Fire Test.
Using COMMAND 58:
1. Ensure your command center is at disarmed idle text.
2. Press the COMMAND bar. The display shows SYSTEM COMMAND.
3. Press the 5 key, then press the 8 key.
Note: If you prefer, you may use the Command Menu in place of steps 2 and 3 to initiate this function. Press the MENU key to enter the Command Menu, then press NEXT repeatedly until you reach the FIRE TEST ? prompt. Press ENT.
4. The display shows ## PTS TO TEST.
5. One-at-a-time, activate the detection devices to fault each point.
6. As you fault each point, your command center will display the point text for 60 seconds and ring the fire sounders for 2 seconds. This verifies that the detection device is working properly. Your system automatically resets smoke detectors.
• When a resettable point (such as a smoke detector) is faulted, the display shows SENSOR RESETTING for 5 seconds. During this time power is removed from smoke power relays.
• Faulting a point more than once does not increment the test count. However, the command center emits a brief tone and displays the point text each time you fault the point allowing you to test multiple devices assigned to one point.
7. When all 24-hour points have been tested, 0 PTS TO TEST is displayed. Press ESC. The display momentarily shows ALL PTS TESTED before returning to idle text.
8. During the Fire Test you may want to see the points that remain untested. When point text is displayed, press ESC. The display shows ## PTS TO TEST. Press the ESC key. VIEW UNTESTED ? is displayed. Press ENT. ## PTS UNTESTED is displayed. Press NEXT to see a list of the points that have not yet been tested. Move through this list by pressing the NEXT key. To resume the Fire Test, press ESC. ## PTS UNTESTED is displayed. Press ESC. ## PTS TO TEST is displayed. Resume testing points. To end the Fire Test, press ESC twice.
When using 4 wire smoke detectors on the D6112, where do the detectors power connections need to be landed on the panel to provide reset capabilities with Command 47?
The power connections need to be landed on terminal 15(+) and 14(-) for the reset to occur when a CMD 47 is entered at the keypad.
The FA113 will not arm the panel if it was disarmed from the keypad and will not disarm if panel was armed from the keypad
Used as an arm/disarm device, the FA113 is configured to panel zone 74 or 194. Pressing the FA113 Off button sends an OPEN signal to the control panel and pressing the On button sends a NORMAL signal to the control panel.
The area should be both Armed and Disarmed by the FA113 for it to function correctly. When the arming state is changed by the FA113, then by another means, the FA113 becomes unable to detect the current armed state of the area and will not respond to the keys pressed.
Correct settings for FA113:
The transition of the state of point 74 is what causes the area to arm or disarm. • Mode in the D8125INV is set to 4. • Keyswitch Maintained point (Point Type 4) with Point Response 2, is required for the FA113. • Area will arm with a transition from open to normal on point 74. • Area will disarm with a transition from normal to open on point 74. The FA113 is also used for panic on point 75 (7412G) and point 195 (9412G).
Overview: The Inovonics FA570 and FA575 High-Power Repeaters receive, decode and re-transmit signals from Inovonics FA-Series transmitters up to 4 miles in open field.
What is the difference between the FA570 and FA575?
The difference is the FA575 includes the ACC640 weatherproof enclosure to accommodate exterior applications as well as battery leads to hookup an external battery. Other then that, the units are exactly the same.
How can the rising sun key or trapazoid key be used to activate an output on the D4412/D6412 control communicator?
Under Output Parameters, program a 1,15 for the trapazoid key or 2,0 for the rising sun key to activate an assigned output when the keyfob's alternate buttons are depressed.
The instructions do not show how to interface the D169 to the D6412.
Voice Verification: Allows the panel to control a D169 2-way Voice Verification Module. The D169 allows the central station personnel to verify alarms with a two-way voice session with the premises. The premises phone line runs from the panel to the D169 and then to the premises phones. There are two other module connections to the panel: the programmable relay output (-12 VDC) programmed with the Voice Request output function (2,10), and a point (zone) programmed as a Voice Active point. The panel must also have one or more points with the Voice Verification option selected in the point index. When a point with Voice Verification generates an alarm event:
The panel transmits the alarm report to the receiver at the central station.
When the central station receiver acknowledges the report, the panel activates the Voice Request output function and starts a 30-second report delay time. All reports are delayed. The D169 has 30 seconds to start a two-way voice session.
An operator at the central station picks up the phone line from the receiver with a DTMF telephone and presses [ 2 ].
At the premises, the D169 picked up the phone line when the panel activated the Voice Request output function. When it hears the DTMF tone from the operator pressing [ 2 ], it begins a two-way voice session by first shorting the panel’s Voice Active point.
When the Voice Active point is shorted, the panel silences the non-fire alarm output (sets the Bell Timer to zero). Only the user can silence a fire alarm output.
As long as the Voice Active point is shorted, the panel continues to keep reports buffered.
The D169 ends the voice session by removing the short from the voice active point. The panel resets the bell time and Alarm Event Abort Window (assuming a user at the premises did not change the arming state of the panel during the voice session). Normal reporting (communication) resumes.

There are 2 tests performed on the FA206i, Walk Test and Transmission Test.
Walk Test: With cover in place, quickly (less than 1/2 second) pass a magnet near the Test Mode reed switch. This will activate a 1 minute walk test mode where the LED will light with each trip but no alarm signals will be transmitted.
Transmission Test: With cover in place, hold a magnet near the Test Mode reed switch for at least one second. This will activate a one minute transmission test mode where the device will transmit alarm and restoral cycles at regular intervals for 1 minute.
Note: The FA206i LED only lights when in test mode.
Overview: In order to comply with SIA CP-01 standards, GV2 revision 7.06 and higher panels have modified the method that points programmed for Swinger Bypass are bypassed. GV2 panel revisions 7.05 and earlier will automatically bypass points and report Swinger Bypass P### when these points erroneously report four trouble or alarm events within one hour of the first event. RPS revision 5.5 and higher provides a field called Swinger Bypass Count to be used in GV2 panels revision 7.06 and higher. This setting, between 1 and 4, selects the number of times that a point will automatically bypass after going into trouble or alarm, the selected number of times, within 1 hour of the first event. The Swinger Bypass Count setting is defaulted to 1 and if left unchanged Swinger Bypass points will Bypass after one alarm or trouble event. Further, new GV2 panels revision 7.06 and higher come with a default Swinger Bypass Count setting of 1. If programming with RPS revision 5.4 or earlier, the Swinger Bypass Count field will not be available to change and the setting will remain at 1. Likewise, if programming with the D5200 programmer using GV2Aux revision 1.01 or 1.00 the same problem will occur. RPS 5.5 or GV2Aux revision 1.02 or higher is required for programming.
Why do points bypass after one trouble or alarm event?
The point that generated 1 trouble or alarm and Bypassed uses a Point Index with Swinger Bypass set to Yes and the Swinger Bypass Count is set to 1. This setting is modified in GV2Aux>Misc>Swinger Bypass count in RPS rev 5.5 or higher. Using a D5200 programmer, GV2Aux revision 1.02 must be used. Swinger Count can be modified by entering group on Miscellaneous and then Swinger Count.
The D8112 panel is not sending signals when modem format is selected to the Central Station.
Only the D8112G2 can send signals in Modem II format with a CS setting of 7.
The D8112E, D8112E1, D8112G, D8112G1 and D8112A must have CS set to either Blank or a selection between 1 and 6 but not 7.
Only Modem Format can report a 4 digit account number to the Central Station all others only report a 3 digit account number.
