Replacing a RP1000e LCD keypad
« on: November 27, 2018, 12:46:33 PM »
Hi,
My keypad is getting worn out and the keys aren't always registering even though it beeps, which has led to a few false alarms. The system is a Napco MA1016e and the keypad is an RP1000e Lcd. Do I need exactly another RP1000e keypad or is any similar variant(1054, 1016)  ok?
And is it just a straight wire hookup, with no programming required? This system came with my house, so I'm not as familiar with it as I would like to be.
Thanks.

the 1054 is a single-digit keypad for the 1000 and 1008 panels, the 1016 is similar to the 1054 except the digital display can show two digits, since the 1016e panel is a 14-zone panel.  These are the standard, basic keypads that just show the zone number.  The RP1000e will display actual text like "1-front door".  You could put in an RP1016e keypad if you wanted.

As for hookup, it's straight color for color, no programming is needed.  The two white wires may not be used on your system, they're for a remote panic button.  If they're not used, make sure to tape the ends off so the wires don't touch in the wall and cause a panic alarm.

Thanks so much for your answer. That helps a lot. I'll probably look for the 1000e for the time being, though that seems to be harder to find than the 1016.

Follow up question. I have another keypad in another location in the house that is rarely used. I would assume the wear on that one is very minimal. Can I just switch that with the worn out one? Simple wire disconnect and reconnect? And it doesn't matter that the keypads are now in new locations than originally programmed?
Thanks.

Go ahead and do that.  No problem at all.  Just swap them out, it'll work just fine.

One last dumb question.
Do I need to kill the power to those keypads before switching the wires?
Thanks.

you don't HAVE to, but it's not a bad idea.  To guarantee that you won't damage something by an errant wire touching the circuit board or something.
