  • Page 6: System Wiring

    System Wiring All panel wiring should be kept well away from other wiring, avoiding parallel wire runs with other wires. Where parallel wires are unavoidable, keep wires a minimum of 2 inches apart, or in EMT. We recommend that Alliance system components that use direct wire transformers be wired into a dedicated circuit breaker and those that use plug-in transformers be plugged into an unswitched outlet.
  • Page 7: Shielded Cable Routing

    Shielded cable routing The shielding of all shielded cables used in the system should only be connected at ONE side to one common earthing point in a building. If a shielded bus cable is routed via more than one plastic device, the shielding from incoming and out-going cable has to be connected. Note: Metal chassis must be earth grounded.

  • Page 11: Basic Programming

    Basic Programming When you have finished installing the control panel, you can clear the panel memory, apply power and start programming. Clear panel memory Before programming, the panel memory needs to be cleared. To clear the memory, do the following: 1.
  • Page 12 Default the panel This option resets all programming to the factory default. All programming will be erased and all options will have the standard values. To default the panel, do the following: Press MENU, enter 1278, and press ENTER to access the system menu. Enter 19 and press ENTER to access installer programming.
  • Page 13: Programming Steps

    Programming Steps The following programming steps are meant as an overview. For more information on each programming area, see the Alliance System Programming Manual. Text words Program any needed text words that are not included in the word library. See the Alliance System Programming Manual to view the word library.
  • Page 14: Alarm Groups

    Alarm groups Press MENU, enter 1278, and press ENTER to access the system programming. Enter 19 and press ENTER to access installer programming. Press MENU (advanced menu). Enter 5 and press ENTER to access alarm group programmaning. Enter the alarm group number to be programmed and press ENTER. Note: Care should be taken when programming this function because it can be linked to users, doors, and remote arming stations.
  • Page 15: Zone (Inputs)

    Zones (inputs) Program zones to determine how the zone will function in given circumstances. There are over 50 types of zones. Refer to the Alliance System Programming Manual for more detailed information. Press MENU, enter 1278, and press ENTER to access system programming. Enter 19 and press ENTER to access installer programming.
  • Page 16: Communication Options

    Communication options Program communication options to set up the telephone numbers and communication formats for central station reporting. Reporting options can be set for both system and area reporting. PBX number (public branched exchange) Use this option when connection to the PSTN (public switch telephone network) is made via a PBX by dialing a number sequence. For example, you must dial 9 to get an ouside line.
  • Page 17: Relays (Outputs)

    Relays (outputs) Output controllers are used to expand the number of relays (outputs) on a DGP or control panel. Each output controller expands the outputs by eight. A DGP can have two output controllers connected, increasing the outputs to a maximum of 16 per DGP. An Alliance System can have up to 32 output controllers, which allows a system maximum of 255 outputs.
  • Page 18: Battery Capacity

    Battery Capacity The battery capacity calculations must be performed separately for each part of the system that has a separate AC supply and standby battery. Use the following steps to determine the correct battery capacities for your system: Determine the exact configuration of your system. A separate battery calculation worksheet should be used for each part of the system that has a separate power supply and standby battery.
