2000 RS-232 Automation Module allows you to
connect compatible, third-party automation devices to Concord
(v2.5-later), Concord 4, Concord Express (v4) and Advent
For added security, you can install a magnet and reed switch (not
included) for tamper protection.
The RS-232 automation module includes the following features:
• Automation ports
• Supervised, fire-rated zone inputs
• On-board status indicators
• SuperBus 2000 addressing data bus

the Module on a Wall
Loosen cover screws and remove module cover and circuit
card (see Figure 2).
Removing Cover and Circuit Card
Place the backplate on the wall and mark the mounting
holes (see Figure 3).
Wall Mount Hole Locations
Drill for the mounting holes and insert wall anchors. Next,
secrue the backplate to the wall with the included screws.
Install the circuit card on the backplate and gently press the
