Adding PC5108 to existing system (PC1832)
« on: May 18, 2018, 01:31:41 AM »
Hi,

I have a PC1832 with 2 keypads (PK5500 and PK5508), an EnvisaLink 4, and a PC5108 zone expander. I want to add some more zones, so I bought another PC5108, but I can't make it work -- the panel never shows that any of the zones are open. I have checked the two zones I have wired to it now, and I get no continuity when the zone is open, and continuity when the zone is closed. When I added the second PC5108, I checked section 903 and the panel does seem to be acknowledging the new 5108 as it shows Zones 9-16 and Zones 17-24 in addition to the keypads and the PC5400 (EnvisaLink). I programmed the two new zones into section 002, and added the new zones 17-24 into partition 1 in section 204 ... but the zones all still show closed all the time. I just tried setting one of the unused, not connected (no jumper or anything) zones up as a test, and it shows closed as well.

Any thoughts on what I  might be doing wrong? Did I miss a programming step? Do I need an additional power supply for the second zone expander? I believe the new zone expander is a PC5108 v1.0, but it looks identical to my other PC5108 as far as I can tell (except it is missing a label) -- both boards say REV 04 in the corner.

Thanks!

Is the panel programmed for NO or NC zones?

Hi,

You need to must sure the PC5108 have 3 Jumper setting . (J1 J2 J3 means Jumper Setting)

For Zone 9-16 Jumper Setting J1 OFF  J2 ON J3 ON .

For Zone 17-24 Jumper Setting J1 ON J2 OFF J3 ON.

For Programming * 8 5555 [902] to Enroll PC5108 Wait for 1 Minute

                                           [903] Verity Model is Supervision

                                           [203] Turn ON LED 12345678 (Zone 9 TO 16)

                                           [204] Turn ON LED 12345678 (Zone 17 TO 24)
                                           
                                           [001] Assign Zone type for Zone 1 to 16

                                           [002] Assign Zone type for Zone 17 to 24

All,

Thanks for the suggestions -- I have verified jumpers for both PC5108s are correctly installed, and that I have done a proper enrollment with section 902, followed by a 1 minute wait, then verifying that Zones 9-16 and Zones 17-24 appear in the output for section 903. I have also verified that section 203 shows ON for 12345678 and 204 shows ON for 12345678. I have assigned Zone types under 001 (1-16) and 002 (17-24). In section 002, I have zone 17 set as a 03 (window contact) and zone 18 set as a 01 (entry / exit door). No other contacts are connected to the PC5108 in question. Zone 18 is actually a contact that I am moving from a different zone (was combined with several windows) to provide greater granularity, so I am comfortable saying that at least that contact is working properly. I have also run a continuity check on the other contact (a window contact) and it responds as I expect, continuity when the window is closed and no continuity when it is open. The contacts are installed with no EOLRs. When I look in sections 117 and 118, they show the same as 116: 1234-6--   . Is there a per zone expander or per zone configuration for NC vs NO zones, and for EOLR setup? Looking at a programming sheet for the 1832 v4.22 (what I have) shows that in sections [101-132] have the per-zone options, but option for NC, EOLR, and DEOLR only apply to the first 8 zones.

It could be that I have a bad PC5108 I guess. Just seems like an odd failure mode to me.
