Possible causes and solutions:
Ground Fault Detect enabled
The control panel has a ground fault detection circuit that when enabled, detects ground faults on Terminals 1 to 9 and 11 to 30. If a ground fault condition occurs, the keypads annunciate a ground fault and control panel transmits a trouble message.
Ground Fault condition is corrected
When the control panel recognizes that the ground fault condition is corrected, and remains corrected for between 5 to 45 consecutive seconds, the control panel clears the fault from the keypad display and sends a restoral report
Measure earth ground (Terminal 10) and COMMON (Terminal 9) to determine whether the control panel has the necessary 0 VDC decay to -2.1 VDC. Measuring and comparing voltage for ground fault detection:
Set your digital voltmeter (DVM) to measure VDC.
Connect the red DVM lead to control panel Terminal 10, and the black DVM lead to Terminal 9.
Compare this voltage to the following table:
Enable Ground Fault Detect and reports
To enable fault detection, use RPS. Set the following parameters:
· PANEL WIDE PARAMETERS > Miscellaneous > Ground Fault Detection. Set to Enable
· PANEL WIDE PARAMETERS > Report Routing > Burglar Reports > Trouble Report. Set to Yes.
· PANEL WIDE PARAMETERS > Report Routing > Burglar Reports > Burg Restore (After Trouble). Set to Yes.

How is the D6112 armed and disarmed?
Arming Your Security System
Your security system can be armed in many different ways, depending on the arming command used. Arming commands are those commands used to arm the system. The most basic arming command is to arm the entire system. This is done by entering your personal passcode and pressing ENT or by entering COMMAND 1.
To ARM your security system:
Enter your personal passcode and press ENT or enter an Arming Command. Your system may be programmed to send a "closing" report to the Central Station when arming.
Disarming Your Security System
Your security system is disarmed by entering your personal passcode and pressing ENT. When your system is armed, you must enter the premises through a designated entry door to prevent an immediate instant alarm condition. Opening the door starts an entry delay time and the Command Center emits a pulsing "beep" tone to remind you to disarm the system. Entering your personal passcode and pressing ENT before the delay time expires and the system will disarm. If you enter through a wrong door or fail to disarm the system before the entry delay expires, you will generate an immediate alarm.
To DISARM your security system:
Enter your personal passcode and press ENT. Your system may be programmed to send an "opening" report to the Central Station when disarming.
How do I Force Arm the System?
Force Arming the System
Under normal conditions your Command Center cannot be master armed while there is a faulted zone. Force arming allows you to arm the system with any zone faulted other than priority zones. (Priority zones are zones that must be normal when the system is armed.) Force arming arms only those zones that are ready to arm; any zone faulted at arming time is bypassed (not armed).
When force arming, a trouble report may be sent to the Central Station indicating that the system was force armed and which zone was faulted. A closing report may also be sent by those systems that are programmed for opening and closing reports.
Force arming can be programmed to apply to most arming commands as well as your personal passcode. Your alarm technician will check the boxes below to indicate which arming commands can force arm your system.
To arm with zones faulted:
1. Enter your personal passcode and press the ENT key, or enter an arming command (COMMANDs 1, 2, or 3). The Command Center then emits a "beep" tone with each keytouch indicating that a zone is faulted. 2. Press the COMMAND bar and then the ENT key. The system now arms all zones which are normal.
NOTE: If the fault is restored (returned to normal) while arming, the zone will be armed. If the fault is restored after arming, how your system is programmed determines whether or not the zone will be armed with the rest of the system.
How can a REX sensor such as the DS150i or DS160 be used to shunt an armed point?
The REX sensor can be used to shunt a normally closed contact by connecting the REX relay contacts that will provide closure when motion is detected in parallel with the door point to be shunted. When these contacts close, a short will be placed across the door point. The panel will see the door as closed for the duration of the REX relay time.
Note: The REX relay Common to Normally Open and Common to Normally Closed contacts will reverse when changing from Fail Safe to Fail Secure mode. See NOTES for further clarification.
In Fail Safe mode, use the Yellow and Violet wires on the first relay or the Gray and Green wires on the second relay.
In Fail Secure mode, use the Yellow and Blue wires on the first relay or the Gray and Orange wires on the e second relay.
In Fail Safe mode, use the relay contacts designated Normally Open to Common.
In Fail Secure mode, use the relay contacts designated Normally Closed to Common.
