  1. Hey all, just in the process of rejigging the alarm, and it's been a while since I've tinkered with the wired stuff... I want to switch a single PIR for a Shock on my G2-20... Forgetting the 'quality' of the wiring, how would this transplant over to the Viper? And resister location?? Thanks in advance!
  2. Can anyone help with a bit of fault diagnosis on a viper (x2) circuit This is an older Scantronic system where I am getting false alarms on a circuit with two vipers - about eight(8) years old. Strangely neither viper LED flashes after false alarm. When walk tested both vipers flash as they should. I have checked the internal viper wiring and all good. Question is this a viper problem or wiring. Any help would be good - thank you.
  3. Hi, I recently moved into a new house with a Scantronic 9800, but no user or engineer code. I had to refresh the NVM so lost all the programming. I have reprogrammed it, and it works OK but for a problem with a zone with 4 Viper inertia sensors. I can't get them to reset. By which I mean, if whilst the alarm is not set a Viper gets triggered, the comfort LED (as I believe it is known) comes on and stays on, and if I then go to set the alarm I cannot without first doing an engineer reset. If no Viper has been triggered before the alarm is set, all is OK. So, after a bit of research, I gather from a previous thread on this forum that one of the Viper's 12V terminals should be connected to one of the programmable outputs on the panel, set to 'Shock sensor reset', and was going to try this but discovered that I have a small additional PCB wired in between Output 1 and the Viper 12V +ve, as can be seen in the photo below. Does anyone know what this does and how it might work? With it in place I tried setting Output 1 to Shock sensor reset, with output state set to both +ve applied and -ve applied, as well as the default Set latch type 1, and none work (with differing symptoms). Should I just get rid of it and wire the Vipers directly to an Output? How is the LED on a Viper supposed to work, by the way? I imagine it is off normally when the alarm is not set, flashes briefly if triggered, then stops as the Viper is automatically reset. Is that right? I can't find much documentation for all this on the internet. Any help much appreciated. Many thanks Justin
  4. Hi Folks Hope everyone is well. I am looking for a bit of advice. Any advice is appreciated. I currently have a standard honeywell door contact sensor on my front door and patio door. It is already wired up & working fine. I want to upgrade them to Viper GLX Shock Sensor With Contacts. Do i simply cable the new Viper exactly the same as the existing sensor? Or do i need to use extra wiring back to the panel? Thanks in advance - Enjoy the weekend. Regards Zemme
  5. Hi Everyone, Please can you help I have 2-3 Viper GLX's on one Zone connected to Scan 9751 Panel, Due to constraints with using existing wiring and plaster they are wired with 4 core. Please see the diagram i have attached to explain the best i can, i have wired the alarm in series and -ve terminal is connected to the OP3 at the panel as Shock reset going by the manual. I have been told this its possible to wire in this way. Problem i am getting is that when i arm the system it states the Zone is open (only with the shocks) it arms successfully however and if I bang them twice they do correctly set the alarm off Any ideas on improvements or any links i have missed out? Many Thanks B
