Aux + -, HO and ST over on the left would be may guess.

Probably right, the sab i'm using is an MAS sabmaster module and ive tried wiring it up but it just blows a fuse in the panel.

Have to ask: Why would you want to connect an alarm that old back up ?

Well because it looks pretty cool in my eyes and ive always wanted an early electronic display sort of panel in my collection of ye olde burglar alarms.

I would test with a meter first but I assume:-

 

12v+ = +ve

12v- = trig

HO = -ve

ST = tamp return

B = beacon? strobe

 

Failing that the 999 D'COM terminals are likely negative sinking panic and intruder.

The problem is the HO is not negative its positive

So it's for an old SCB then

Ill probably just run the tamper switch directly to the panel then put the hold off where it needs to go, then put the trig on the B terminal.

SCB where designed that way.

Tamper return will be +ve if the HO is +ve, you can see the tamper link is still fitted

I thought SCBs were the ones that had the voltage going directly to the bell box and when the alarm sets off, the hold off is cut sounding the bell using its own battery and SABs were the ones that had the trigger voltage?

You mean scb mode uses internal battery to activate sounder and hold off is just charging

 

And sab mode draws power from panel hold off when bell activated

 

 

Both have a separate trigger 

 

Or something like that

Self Contained Bell, uses it's own lead acid battery to sound the siren when triggered from panel.

Self Activating Bell, uses the panel voltage to sound the siren when trigger is low, or "hold off" voltage is removed which "self activates" the bell from it's NiCd. Many modern SAB's have a SCB style mode.

You'd find SCBs in chubbs, AFAs, brocks and all that and you'd find SABs in thorns, Abels, modern alarms, etc.
