GENERAL DESCRIPTION The NetworX NX-8 represents a new approach to security systems design. Drawing on our experience in the world market as the largest exporter of USA manufactured controls, we have developed the most flexible, durable, and user- friendly control ever seen in our industry. Featuring sophisticated software that allows up to 99 users to interface with 48 zones, 8 partitions, and a host of integrated fire, access, verification, and input/output modules, all reported with the most comprehensive and fast SIA and Contact ID formats.
FEATURE DEFINITIONS Abort - If enabled, the NX-8 will wait the programmed number of seconds in location 40 prior to sending an alarm. During this delay time, the "Cancel" LED will flash. To abort the report, type in a code and press the [Cancel] key. The LED will extinguish.
Communication Formats- The NX-8 can report in multiple formats. It is recommended that you use Contact ID or SIA formats if possible. If you wish to report to a pager or in a 4+2 format to a central station, you must program each code to be reported.
Keypad Sounder Control- The NX-8 can be programmed to sound the keypad sounder for certain events. (See location 39, page 23) Keypad Tamper- If enabled, the NX-8 will disable the keypad for 60 seconds and communicate a tamper signal to the central station if 30 keypresses are entered without producing a valid code.
begin a new trip count where the next alarm will set the ‘counter’ to 1. If immediate restore is enabled in location 37, the alarms (and restores, if enabled) will be sent as they occur. If immediate restore is not enabled, a second or subsequent alarm will not be sent until the siren times out.
PROGRAMMING THE LED KEYPADS This section describes how to program the address and partition of each keypad as well as the options that are available. The address of the keypad is important because this is how the panel supervises the keypads. The factory default for the Master code is --- when using a 4-digit code or ----- for a 6-digit code.
CHANGING USER CODES: 1) Enter [r]--[master code] - The "Ready" LED will flash. 2) Enter the 2 digit user number (always 2 digits such as "03" for user 3) - The "Ready" LED will illuminate steady. 3) Enter the new user code designated for that individual - The "Ready" LED will flash indicating that the code was accepted.
PROGRAMMING THE NX-8 CONTROL PANEL ENTERING THE PROGRAM MODE: To enter the Program Mode, press [r]-. At this time, the five function LEDs (Stay, Chime, Exit, Bypass, & Cancel) will begin to flash. Next, enter the "Go To Program Code" (FACTORY DEFAULT IS ---).
PROGRAMMING EXAMPLE – Figure 1 (Numerical Data) Zone 1 LED = 1 Zone 2 LED = 2 Data = 9 Data = 66 Zone 4 LED = 8 Zone 7 LED = 64 To change data in a Pressing [#] will exit a segment, enter the data location without followed by [ ]...
FEATURE SELECTION DATA: Feature selection data will display the current condition (on or off) of eight features associated with the programming location and segment selected. Pressing a button on the touchpad (1 thru 8) that corresponds to the "feature number" within a segment, will toggle (on/off) that feature. Pressing any numeric key between  and  for selection of a feature, will make the corresponding LED illuminate (feature ON).
Segment 2- Phone #1 Backup Control: Programming a "0" in Segment 2 of this location will cause the NX-8 to make the designated number of attempts to Phone #2 before setting the "Fail To Communicate" condition and stop reporting. Programming a "1" in this segment will cause the NX-8 to stop trying to communicate after the designated number of attempts have been made to Phone #1.
Segment 2: 1 = Zone and Box Tamper and Tamper Restore. 2 = Auxiliary Power Overcurrent, Ground Fault, and Restore for both. 3 = Wireless Sensor Missing and Restore. 4 = Wireless Sensor Low Battery and Restore. 5 = Expander Trouble and Restore. 6 = Fail To Communicate.
REPORTING EVENTS TO PHONE NUMBER 2 Phone #2 can be used to back up Phone #1 or for a second receiver to multi-report or split report events. Phone #2 has two programming locations that are used to select which events are reported to this phone number. Location 10 is used to select which events are reported to Phone #2, and location 11 is used to select which partitions are reported to Phone #2.
LOCATION 15 - DIAL ATTEMPTS/BACKUP CONTROL FOR PHONE #3 (2 segments, numerical data) Segment 1, Dial Attempts: Segment 1 of Location 15 is used to enter the number of dial attempts (1 to 15 attempts) the communicator will try to Phone #3 before ending the notification process. Factory default is "8" and the communicator will make the same number of attempts as those programmed in location 3.
LOCATION 18 - CUSTOM COMMUNICATOR FORMAT (See locations 2, 8, &14) Segment 1: 1 = On for 1800hz transmit; Off for 1900hz. 2= On for 2300hz handshake; Off for 1400hz. 3= On for cksum parity; Off for double round parity. 4= On for 2 digit event code;...
LOCATION 23 - PARTITION 1, FEATURE AND REPORT SELECTIONS (3 segments, feature selection data) Location 23 is used to enable certain features that can be accessed or are visible to the user from the keypad of the system. In addition, certain communicator reports are enabled in location 23. Each of these features can be enabled by partition.
DEFAULT ZONE TYPES (Configurations) Zones can be programmed to be one of twenty different zone types (configurations). Zone types # 17 - 20 can be used for wireless or hardwired zones using European double EOL configuration. The default zone types are listed below. These zone types can be customized by programming locations 110-149.
NOTE: To “null” a zone, program the zone in “Partition Select” as zero (0) in all partitions and do not use end-of-line resistors. LOCATION 25 - ZONES 1-8 ZONE TYPE (8 segments, numerical data) Location 25 contains the Zone Type for zones 1-8. Segment 1 is for zone 1, and Segment 8 is for zone 8.

LOCATION 40 - SYSTEM TIMERS (10 segments, numerical data) Location 40 contains the duration of various system timing functions. Example: If you desire the duration of the Dynamic Battery Test to be 30 minutes, you should program --[r] in segment 1 of this location. The - is the number of minutes, and the [r] stores the data and moves to the next segment of this location.
LOCATION 44 - DURESS CODE (6 segments, numerical data) Location 44 contains the "Duress" code. This Location contains either 4 or 6 digits. If the 6-digit code option is enabled in Location 41, THIS CODE MUST CONTAIN SIX (6) DIGITS. If the 6-digit option is not enabled in location 41, the last 2 digits will be ignored.
