  2. Alarm upgrade

    Sorry should have been more clear there is a single 6 core cable to each PIR

    Grading, if using mask/fault reporting you'd need to hang about 3 busicuts out of each detector We tend to go texe route and give the customer he choice . If it's an upgrade for say comms, rewire/configure as much h/w as possible, then add wireless if required

    Why did ID systems stop being installed? Not fitted one for 12-14 years, But never had any problems installing the old gardtec systems.
  6. Milestone VMS

    Has anyone on here used milestone and if so which one? Any good?

    Not sure you would, I think faced with fix an old system for lots of dosh, versus new system for lots of dosh, even the most tightest amongst us will go for the latter

    closed, appears to be gossip...

    Dammit, I shouldn't have thrown mine away, been ripping out 5 to 6 old Id systems a month for well over 2 years. Would've been loaded by now.
  10. Veritas 8 installation bug

    Initially I didn't wire it in any other way other than the way the sensor had previously been wired. In debugging I may well have damaged it! Perfectly competent to do so - I will try that, thanks.

    Hi all I'm new to this site and I've put some of my comments in the wrong locations. Oops. But most get the gist I hope. Thanks
  12. Texecom Premier Elite 64W Wireless keypad woes

    Page 37 & 38 of manual. On main PCB red cable to the far left and on com port red cable to top (where it says jp1)

  14. Texecom Premier Elite 64W Wireless keypad woes

    I've looked in to this a bit further and its the DigiModem port I'm hoping to use, in the ComPort+ instructions it says use the Digi Port and has a diagram with the orientation, however it doesn't cover the Elite 64W, which has male pins instead of a female socket. I've taken a picture of the board connector, com port add-on and cable. Can someone maybe suggest which way round the little board goes to connect to this port? Kind Regards Kevin

    It's per user account, this thread seems to be the reason for -9 rep points. However, I believe the comment is regarding this post. People can read things differently. But maybe I am wrong, from experience it can sometimes be difficult to work out why things get so heated around here...

    What the down vote thing? -9? must be from a previous thread, there’s no down votes on this thread. unless your refering to something I can’t see.

    The alarms you fit go poooooooop....

    I think he was referring to the neg under his name, I don’t know what that’s for ? James ? i have poz 24 ?
  21. As above. halfway point and use your meter, before I do anything I look for external devices, eg sounder, call points are my first target. with only 16 shouldn’t take too long even if you looked at them all. had to find one on a 120 loop once, took about 6 hours, mixture of old MI and botched in 4 cores ect, real treat it was, traced it to an adjacent private building, he just got a new dog who was chewing an old cable in the porch!!! the bloke thought it was funny... until he got the bill

    Nope, went Texe route on them, works really well. Finding Disco Biscuits is the hard bit ;-)

    Who’s being negative? lighten up a little
  24. Difficult when you aren't familiar with the wiring route or mid-way point of the loop. In simple terms, you need to half the loop, multimeter to find which leg has the earth fault, half again until you narrow it down to a device or a leg of cable. First of all I'd check all devices on the loop for the environment there in - certain ones may stand out, water ingress is a common one from my experience. Rear of chillers for example when the cable entry hasn't been sealed correctly causing a difference in temperature and the condensation sets causing the device to get filled with water. It may save you time with a bit of common sense first of.

    Until next year don't mean much, they could still go pop..... Y do they always do it Xmas time lol

    Resurrecting an old thread here. We still look after quite a bit of iD. Still got several karizma plus panels going strong, we have heaps of spare biscuits and usually replace any dead panels with texecom and an iD expander. Yet to rewire any sites to EOL though, has anyone had to rewire any iD sites to EOL yet?
  28. I’ve just started a new job and my new role looks like it will involve more reactive work, first job today was an earth fault on a Kentec syncro. As I approached the job something occurred to me - I really don’t have a methodical way of tracing these faults. I know this may sound like an obvious question, is probably second nature to many, but I really don’t know the quickest and most efficient way of finding an earth fault. Originally wired in two loops, now joined in the panel to make it one loop. The fault is on the newer of the two loops. I think it’s about 16 devices. I can think of various things I’d do which I would muddle my way through and eventually reach the source of the fault, but I want a methodical way of doing this.
