Technology moves on I suppose, but I doubt if any self respecting company would just go ahead and change a perfectly working id system. Don't know much about the biscuits..if they are numbered or whatever, can't they be sorted according to the panels or systems they are supposed to work with ?

I see you use a backlit sign on buildings

 

Yes on our wired systems, you like?

The issue is, for say number 10 dies, and all you have is 19. (low numbers go quick) now you have a big gap in zones! Not to mention i've been to many sites that arent well 'documented' and it costs you time!

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?

Nope, went Texe route on them, works really well.

Finding Disco Biscuits is the hard bit ;-)

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.

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

Why did ID systems stop being installed?

Not fitted one for 12-14 years, But never had any problems installing the old gardtec systems.

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

we go the hkc id route. But it means hardware upgrade. But due to the age of the system usually best anyway

I had trouble with one once , new cable tried different panel , but kept getting coms error on hkc ID , weird , it worked with wireless instead lol

 

Although others worked with ID fine , I think newer stuff isn't as rigid as biscuits, and even using the common leg method on older galaxy boards , forget the model but mostly old ADT systems put well together , limited for upgrading though , not enough cores on each leg

id was designed for car use, short runs large cable etc. I've run hkc at over 200m leg length with 2 legs in the same 6 core due to 10 device limit
