Login/Logout Procedure

To perform any of the functions protected at Level 2 or
above, you must login to the panel using a passcode. After
completing a task at a certain access level, you should then
logout to return the access level to Level 1 to prevent unau-
thorized operation. When logged in at Level 2 or above and
no panel keys are pressed for more than 10 minutes, the
panel automatically returns the system to Level 1.
All passcodes consist of a 4-digit number. Logging in at
Level 4 causes a Service Mode trouble that may only be
cleared by restarting the panel.

Overview - Programming a Job

A job refers to the file containing all of the panel's program-
ming information. This manual describes the process
required to create a job from the front panel of the system.
Creating a job involves:
Setting the attributes of each IDC, NAC, and AUX
relay, including:
Function Type. Determines the way in which the
IDC, NAC, or relay operates (i.e., fire point, trouble
point, on til silence, etc.)
Custom Label. This is a 20-character label that
describes each zone, NAC, or relay.
Alarm Group. Allows inputs and outputs to be
associated into groups to implement selective sig-
naling applications. See "Alarm Groups" below.
Defining the attributes (phone numbers, account num-
bers, reporting format, etc.) of the panel's Digital Alarm
Communicator Transmitter (DACT). If the DACT will
not be used, programming consists of disabling the
Programming the operation of the LEDs contained on
the panel and connected annunciators. Programming an
annunciator consists of identifying the point being mon-
itored by the LED and the mode (i.e., fire alarm, trou-
ble, etc.) that will trigger the LED to illuminate.
Setting values for the panel's system options, which are
pre-defined modes of operation with a range of settings
from which to choose. System Options define global
operations such as the time and date format, door drop
timers, and whether the city circuit is enabled, etc.
