Awesome! Thank you very much for clearing that up!


On the manual panel, are the AUX + and Red + connected so it doesn't technically make a difference which is used to draw power?  So it's 700mA total regardless of which terminal is used?

If the Red + terminal and the AUX + terminal are separate circuits, and the 1A rating is for the AUX + terminal, then what is the rating for the Red + terminal?

I always thought the AUX + and Red + were connected (same circuit) and just offered for convenience.

I understand everything you said, except where it seems like you divide keypads between the power supply (non-essential) and the panel (essential).
How do you separate them when the R/B/Y/G wires are interconnected between the power supply and panel? Even if the PS goes down the keypads are still wired to the panel.

What am I'm missing?

Thanks, it looks like either of those will work. However I looked at their specs and am unclear:

a) They are rated for 1A, is this in addition to the 700mA already available on the board? Or am I simply getting a 300mA addition?
b) Am I correct that the bell circuit is separate and in addition to the 700mA of the board?
c) Do I need it to be supervised if I'm using it only to power 4 keypads? I imagine if 1 or all of them go offline the main board will notice, or at least I will when I walk up to it.

Edit: All this time I thought the board was 750mA max... but I checked the specs again and it's 700mA!

I've added up the published current draw on components connected and I'm well over 600mA, with plans to add more.

What are my options to increase the current capacity as I believe the maximum allowed on my board is 700mA?

Also, what happens if 700mA is exceeded - does it do irreversible damage, or simply trip a breaker temporarily?


I wasn't aware of *4. That sounds like a likely culprit.

Thank you.

PC1832 V4.60

All of a sudden, coming home from work yesterday I noticed the Door Chime sounds whenever a contact is opened.

What would cause this feature to activate itself?  I have not noticed any other anomalies but am concerned if it starts acting up.

I installed the system last year and have disabled this feature from day 1. Last time I entered the system was about 2 months ago. There have not been any power outages recently.


OK I'll test it.
I have a full English keypad but never noticed that message. Then again I usually don't hang around it until the delay timer ends.

Thanks for the suggestion!

Thank you for explaining that. If they're worth anything I'll try to sell or trade them for Powerseries stuff.


If I arm it as AWAY, the person staying home will trigger the motion sensors.

If I arm is as STAY, won't it automatically change to away when I open the door to exit?

I recently acquired some Maxsys keypads LSD4501TZ and expander modules PC4116.

1) Would either of those work on my Powerseries PC1832 system?

2) If not, why not? This is more of a generic question - such as what makes a DSC system incompatible from another one?

3) Is Maxsys the precursor to Powerseries? Or is it in a different category (such as commercial only)?

Thanks Mike - I tried to figure out your suggestion but can you point me in the right direction - what sections to focus on? I've never set up a PGM before.
I have a piezo buzzer.

I did some reading on partitions and I'm hoping that is not my only solution - they seem tricky to globally arm and disarm.

Basically what I'm looking to accomplish is to have those certain 5 zones activate only a buzzer (not trigger an alarm signal) but only when the rest of the system is armed. At all other times those 5 zones are ignored (but it would still be nice to see their status on the display).


I have about 20 zones.

I want 15 zones to trigger the main bell, and the other 5 zones to trigger a 2nd bell (more like a little buzzer).

What is the best way to do this? I'm thinking of putting the 5 zones on a new partition, but how do I get them to trigger the buzzer and not the main bell?
