23-05-2012, 10:48 AM,
Engineer Addendum for EN50131-1
Engineer Addendum for EN50131-1 PD6662 2004 For CPX, GardTec 595 Gardtec 800 Series

When the Control Panel is defaulted the Engineer will be given the option of what standards he wishes the control panel to operate to. Options available will be:
BS 4737 Panel may be programmed to comply with current BS4737 Standards. DD243 requirements will still apply.
EN2 Panel may be programmed to comply with EN50131-1 for Grade 2 Systems. DD243 will still apply.
EN3 Panel may be programmed to comply with EN50131-1 for Grade 3 Systems DD243 will still apply.
To default the control panel withdraw all power (mains and battery) from the control panel, wait 10 seconds then apply the mains only to the control panel. Whilst the GardTec version screen is being displayed (the first 4 seconds) enter*********into the keypad. The display will show “Please Wait” You will then be given the options above to choose from.
If EN standard is selected the following restrictions and defaults will be applied to both EN2 and 3 unless otherwise indicated.

1. Option Formats. When an option can’t be changed the display will show: rather than the usual = sign. Pressing the No key is disregarded and the panel will react as though the Yes key has been pressed (i.e. it will move on to the next option).

2. Authorisation. It may be required that an engineer has to be authorised by a user before access to the engineer modes is granted. A new screen has been added to the User Programming section. Do you want to . . . Authorise Engnr Default is Any but may be changed to Master / Main / User Details of how a user would program this function and how to authorise an engineer are contained within the User Addendum.

3. LCD Status is defaulted to None and may not be changed.

4. Pre Exit Check has been added. At the start of the setting procedure any non Exit route zones that are open will show with a fault tone. E.g.
Zone 8 12hr
Can’t Set ! Check
If the fault clears within 20 seconds then the Exit will begin otherwise the display will return to Day (Unset) Mode.

5. Entry Time 1 is defaulted to 30 seconds. May be changed but maximum time allowed is 45 seconds.

6. Entry Time 2 is defaulted to 30 seconds and may not be changed.

7. Entry Operation changed
Previous Entry Operation was:
If deviation from Entry Route during Entry Time 1, then the remainder of Entry Time 1 was ignored and Entry Time 2 was started.
New Entry Operation:
If deviation from Entry Route during Entry Time 1 then Entry Time 2 starts. Entry Time 2 is 30 seconds and cannot be changed.
Note that comms cannot take place until the later of the theoretical expiry of Entry time 1, or the expiry of Entry time 2.

8. Warning Bell. New option of Warning Bell has been added. Default is Off may be changed to On. If Warning Bell is On, then Bells will operate during Entry Time 2, after the theoretical expiry of Entry time 1 has been reached. If set to Off, the bells will activate only when both Entry time 1 and 2 have expired.

9. Bell Delay is defaulted to 0 and may be programmed to a maximum of 10 minutes.

10. Bell Ring is defaulted to 10 minutes and is programmable to a minimum of 1 minute and a maximum of 15 minutes.

11. Duress is defaulted to Off and may not be changed.

12. Duress 7 is now not available.

13. Prox Tamper function has been added. This is programmed under the Program Keypad Keyswitch / ACE Prox option. Use of this option will require a compatible G-Tag RKP. Default is Off, this may be changed to On. It is intended for use with the external prox reader (E-Reader) and monitors the antenna of the reader for being disconnected.

14. Tamper Reset is defaulted to Engineer. Options available are:
a) Engineer
b) Engineer + AntiCode

15. Mains Fail Delay. Default is 20 minutes. Will delay the display and the necessity to reset a mains fault for the time
programmed. Program Reset Modes screen has changed to Program Reset / Mains to accommodate this new option.

16. Forced Walk Test mode has been added default is Off may be changed to 0 to 99. Bypass time is programmable 0 to 9 x10 e.g. for 20 minutes set Bypass time to 2.

17. Line Fault Log Limit is defaulted to Limited and may not be changed. The limit is set to 3 events (previously 5).

18. Zone Log Limit is defaulted to On and may not be changed.

19. Log Events. New Log Events have been added, these are:
User nn Added
User nn Removed
User nn Changed
These Log Events will always be followed by another new Event:
Chng by User nn
Note: nn is the relevant User number.

20. Log Event Parameter Change will be added to the Event Log when any variable is changed by the Engineer.

21. Event Log. Events are stored either as Mandatory or Non-Mandatory. A Non-Mandatory Event can never roll a Mandatory Event off the end of the control pane Log. It will only roll a Non-Mandatory Event off.
Non-Mandatory Events are:
Page 5 of 20

22. Fault Display implemented. When a fault is detected the sounder will operate as normal but the display will show:
! ! Enter Code ! !
! ! ! ! Check ! ! ! !
When a Code is entered the sounder will be silenced and the fault will be displayed along with the time that it occurred. If more than one fault was detected then the right arrow (->) will indicate there are other events to view. Press the Yes key to move to the next event. When you get to the end of the current events the left arrow (<-) will be displayed. Press the No key to scroll back. If a new fault is detected whilst viewing faults you should start the cycle again by entering a Code.
To escape from this fault viewing mode enter a Code.

23. User Codes & Engineer Code must be six digits in length. * EN3 only

24. Default Engineer codes; 1234 EN2
001234 EN3

25. Default User codes; 5678 EN2
005678 EN3

26. AntiCode seed is now 6 digits. The new AntiCode Software will generate a 7 digit code. This allows for 1 million differs. * EN3 only

27. Onboard Zone Wiring is defaulted EOL (End Of Line).EOL Format appears on the next screen please

28. End Of Line Format. End of line format may be programmed as Norm: Normal (End Of Line Format) with no Fault or Mask monitoring of the zone (default). ELF1: (End Of Line Format 1) this format would typically be used with detectors that have a relay output for the Fault / Mask signal to the control panel. ELF2: (End Of Line Format 2) this format would typically be used with detectors that have an open collector (transistor) output for the Fault / Mask signal to control panel. All Grade 3 systems should use detectors that are capable of detecting Masking and Faults. Grade 2 system do not require these features. It should be noted that these options (Norm, ELF1 or ELF2) are global per zone group, for example if ELF1 is chosen for the panel zones then all panel zones will be ELF1. Each zone expander may have its own individual wiring mode selected but the mode selected for that expander will apply to all zones on that expander card. The following diagrams illustrate typical wiring for Norm (EOL), ELF1 (End of Line Format 1) and ELF2 (End Of Line Format 2).
Fig 1. Typical EOL (End Of Line) Wiring
As can be seen this EOL Wiring Format does not give any fault or masking detection and should only be used in conjunction with zone pairing (please see next section for details of zone pairing. We would recommend that either ELF1 Format or ELF2 Format (dependant on detector output type, Relay or Transistor) is used. ELF1 or ELF2 Wiring modes will allow for Alarm, Tamper, Fault and Masking to be monitored from a single zone without the need for zone pairing. Please see Figs 1&2 for wiring details
Fig 2. Typical ELF1 (End Of Line Format 1) Wiring ELF1 Wiring is used for detectors that have a relay output (a pair of terminals) for Fault or Mask.
The installer should check what output type the detector are noting that all detectors should be of the same type with regards to the Fault / Mask output.

Fig 3. Typical ELF2 (End Of Line Format 2) Wiring Note: For ELF2 Wiring Format the 12K Resistor must be linked to the positive side of the zone terminals. ELF2 Wiring is used for detectors that have a transistor output (a single terminal) for Fault or Mask.
The installer should check what output type the detector are noting that all detectors should be of the same type with regards to the Fault / Mask output. In order to comply with Grade 3 requirements installers of the GardTec 595 control panel should use ELF1 or ELF2 Wiring Modes.

29. Zone Pairing. If ELF1 or ELF2 Wiring Modes are not used then a zone must be used to monitor for Masking and Fault. This is achieved by selecting Zone Pairing as On. Zone Pairing cannot be used in ELF1 or ELF2 Modes but may be used in the following Wiring Modes. CPX Control Panel 2 Wire EOL GardTec 595 2 Wire EOL GardTec 800 Series 2 Wire 4 Wire EOL When using Zone Pairing each zone will have a corresponding paired zone that will be used for the Masking and Fault signals. This is done by using the Odd numbered zones for the normal alarm detection and the Even numbered zones for Masking and Fault Detection. For example. Alarm Zone Paired Zone for Mask/Fault Zone 1 Zone 2 Zone 3 Zone 4 Zone 5 Zone 6 Zone 7 Zone 8 etc…….. We can see by looking at this that half the zones on the system would be lost for processing the Mask and Fault signals and it would therefore be more prudent to use the ELF1 or ELF2 Modes as described in the previous section.
Please see the following diagrams for detector wiring examples using Zone Pairing. Fig 4. Typical EOL Wiring Using Zone Pairing Note: In this example zone 3 is used to process Alarm and Tamper signals and zone 4 is used to process the Masking and Fault signals.
Typical 4 Wire Wiring Using Zone Pairing Note: In this example zone 1 is used to process Alarm and Tamper signals and zone 2 is used to process the Masking and Fault signals.

30. Zone Response time is defaulted to 400 mS and may not change.

31. Fault & Mask Zone Types. Two new Zone Types have been added (Fault & Mask). These Zone Types are treated as 24Hr but trigger a new Fault Sound in Day (Unset) Mode. The new Fault Sound is three tone sounder.

32. Fault / Mask Response Time may be programmed as a global parameter. The default time is 400ms and may be reprogrammed to. 2 Seconds 4 Seconds 6 Seconds 8 Seconds 10 Seconds 12 Seconds 14 Seconds
The time programmed for this option will apply to all zones there is no option for individual response times per zone, it is a global setting. Once the Fault / Mask as been triggered the response time for the Fault / Mask will revert to the default time of 400ms until the fault / mask problem has been cleared.

33. Mask and Fault are now detected, new screens for the end user will be displayed, for example. Living Room ! ! = Fault Living Room Detector Living Room M ! = Mask Living Room Detector Please refer to the User Addendum Sheet for more information that EN50131-1 / PD6662 will have on the normal day to day use of the system.

34. Zone Expanders are all defaulted to EOL with the same options that are available for the on-board zones.

35. Fire Zones will not be displayed when the system is Set.

36. FTC (Fail To Communicate) will be triggered if there is not a successful communication within 120 seconds of the communication starting instead of the number of dial attempts. The Digi programming screen No. of Dial Attempts Before FTC is no longer available.

37. Line Fault Detect Time is now programmable default is 10 seconds may be set 00 to 99 seconds.

38. New Digi Channel types added. The following Digi Channel types have been added. Any Fault Any Mask Fault-Area1 Mask-Area1 Fault-Area2 Mask-Area2 Fault-Area3 Mask-Area3 Fault-Area4 Mask-Area4 Fault-Area5 Mask-Area5 Fault-Area6 Mask-Area6 Fault-Area7 Mask-Area7 Note: The number of Areas displayed will be panel dependant.

39. New Contact ID (PID) and SIA triggers added. The following triggers have been added. Radio Lost Radio Jamm Zone Fault Zone Mask

40. STU Adaptor options added if the Digicom Type is programmed as MOD+xxx then the following screen will appear. STU Adaptor = Off Other STU options are STU Adaptor O/P Pos / Neg Pos STU Adaptor channel outputs & Pin 11 (ATS Test) are + 5V active.
Neg STU Adaptor channel outputs and pin 11 (ATS Test) are 0V active. STU Adaptor I/P Pos / Neg Pos RC Reset (pin 6) FTC (pin 7) LF (pin15) are +5V active Neg RC Reset (pin 6) FTC (pin 7) LF (pin15) are 0V active An extra channel (channel 9) is available and will be shown when programming channels or testing channels. STU Adaptor will work in parallel with a normal comms device e.g MOD+xxx When programmed as MOD+PID or MOD+SIA then programming for both the Digi channels and the triggers will be available. Remote Reset from the STU input (pin 6) can reset the control panel provided that the STU Adaptor option is On and Remote Reset is On

41. Battery Save feature. To prevent the system battery being fully discharged the onboard relay on the GardTec 816, 840 & 872 may be wired and used as a Battery Save option. Panels such as the GardTec 595 and basic GardTec 800 do not have this onboard relay. The relay of the STU Adaptor may also be used for this Battery Save option. Please refer to Fig 6. below for wiring details. Fig 6. Onboard Relay or STU Adaptor Relay wiring for Battery Save Feature. Required For Grade 3 Systems Only. The relay must be programmed as Power OK. In the event of a mains fail the battery will take over to supply the system. When the battery voltage falls below 10.4 Volts the relay (that has been held energised) will drop out therefore disconnecting the battery from the system. This will prevent a deep discharging of the battery (and the possibility of damaging it).

42. Power Supply. The power supply capacities of GardTec control panels have not reduced with the introduction of PD6662. The 595 and the CPX control panel power supply remain at 1A, whilst the 800 series control panels have increased to 1.2 Amps.
However, for the purpose of compliance to the EN and PD6662 standard, the capacities of the power supplies have to be specified differently.
For example, the 800 series control panels have 330mA available for battery charging. This defines a theoretical maximum standby battery capacity of 9.9Ah and a maximum of 825mA available for system power.
If a smaller capacity battery is used then the rating has to be reduced accordingly.
For example: If a 7Ah battery is used it will easily recharge in 24Hrs and will theoretically provide 870mA (1200-330mA) for the system. However, the supply rating for that system under PD6662 is 7.0Ah/12hrs = 583mA.
For a Grade 2 system you have 72 hours to charge the battery.
With a GardTec 595 Plastic Control Panel, 90mA (typical) is available for battery charging.
This defines a theoretical maximum standby battery capacity of 8.0Ah and a maximum of 666mA available for system power.
If a smaller capacity battery is used then the rating has to be reduced accordingly.
For example: If a 7Ah battery is used it will recharge in 72Hrs and will theoretically provide 910mA (1000-90mA) for the system. However, the supply rating for that system under PD6662 is still 7.0Ah/12hrs = 583mA.
Note: A GardTec 595 Plastic Control Panel can be configured as a Grade 3 system. In this case the maximum standby battery capacity is 2.7Ah which determines a PD6662 rated supply of 225mA. Therefore an external supply would have to be used to power the non CIE parts of the system.
A typical systems quiescent current consumption consists of the following:
Control Panel plus Keypad
External Sounder
160mA (8x20).
Total Current
This is less than the rated 583mA for a 7Ah battery.
Note: For a Grade 3 system where the standby battery current is sufficient for 12Hr standby, the system must be capable of reporting mains fail to the ARC.

43. In order to report a mains fail on a PSU. The Fault output on the PSU would be wired to a Zone on the control panel. The Zone Type would be programmed as ‘Fault’ Program the Zone Descriptor as External PSU. At the end of the Program Zones menu we have a new menu called Program Event Tags, enter this option and select the Zone number you have programmed as Fault. Program the Tag as Mains Fail. Then program a Digi Channel as Mains Fail. This will allow for full reporting of External PSUs.
44. Radio All GardTec hybrid radio systems are rated at Grade 2.
