Choosing a Location for the Repeater
To select a mounting location for a repeater, use the following guidelines
After a location has been selected, temporarily mount the repeater using a piece of double-
sided tape or a single mounting screw (see "Mounting the Repeater"). You may need to test
the transmitter and receiver in several locations before you permanently mount the repeater.
Select a location with access to 220-240VAC power.
If this repeater transmits directly to the panel, locate it between the panel and the distant trans-
mitters (but within panel reception range).
If this repeater transmits to another repeater, locate this repeater between the receiving
repeater and the distant transmitters (but within the reception range of the receiving repeater).
Testing the Repeater Transmitter
After the repeater is temporarily mounted, perform a Dealer Sensor Test to determine whether or
not the signals sent by this repeater are received by the control panel. If the repeater passes this
test, skip to "DOOR/WINDOW SENSORS."
If the repeater fails this test, it is too far from the control panel and must be relocated. Move the
repeater to a new location perform another Dealer Sensor Test. Continue until the repeater passes
If this repeater will be transmitting to another repeater, perform a Repeater Reception Test on the desti-
nation repeater to ensure that the signals from this repeater are received. If the destination repeater
does not receive the signals from this repeater, move this repeater to a new location and try again. Con-
tinue until the destination repeater can receive signals from this repeater.
Testing a Repeater Receiver
Distant transmitters (i.e., any transmitter that failed the Dealer Sensor Test) must pass this test.
This test checks the communication link between a transmitter (e.g., sensor or touchpad) and the
repeater that will re-transmit its signal.
This test requires two people. One person must activate (trip) the transmitter while another person
observes the repeater LED.
To perform a repeater reception test:
1. Take the cover off this repeater so you can observe the LED.
2. For sensors with a tamper switch, remove the cover from the sensor to cause an alarm trans-
mission. The repeater LED should flash 7-8 times (indicating reception of the alarm signal).
or-- For sensors without a tamper switch, activate an alarm. The repeater LED should flash 7–8
or-- For panic buttons, hold down the button for 5 seconds and release it. The repeater LED
should flash 14–16 times.
or-- For touchpads, hold down an emergency button for 5 seconds, then release it. The repeater
LED should flash 7–8 times.
or-- If this repeater will receive signals from another repeater, hold down the tamper switch of the
transmitting repeater for 5 seconds and release it. The LED of this repeater should flash 14–
16 times in order to pass this test.
3. If any one of the distant transmitters fails this test, relocate the repeater and retest both the
repeater transmitter and receiver.
or--Consider installing additional repeaters.
Adding Additional Repeaters
If there are distant sensors that are not within the reception range of this repeater, you must add
additional repeaters to the system. Perform the above installation procedure for each repeater,
assigning appropriate repeater identification numbers to ensure a "cascade" of repeated signals
(see "Setting the DIP Switches").
