6 wire system

Recommended Posts

Hi folks,

 

The alarm in my house has a 6 wire system, its old and needs a new panel, keyboard and outside sounder.

 

I was thinking about the Scantronic i-on40H Hybrid Control Panel. I like the look of their keypad and sounder too

 

Will this be compatible with 6 wire sensors ?

 

Thanks in advance

Hi there,

 

I fit the i-On professionally, and it is a great system, especially the free app which allows alerts and remote control.

 

What you would need to do is either;

 

1. Fit additonal resistors at the sensor end, using the same wiring (this only needs 4 wires per sensor, 2 for power, 2 for Tamper and Alarm combined, we call it EOL, the resistors you need are in the panel packaging)

2. Fit part number ADP-10CC which allows you to continue to use '6 core' or 4 CC wiring without any modifications

 

The EOL concept is not unique to Eaton and anyone on here would be able to talk you through it.

I'm guessing the OP is unsure as to how it would all work.

 

IIRC you can actually convert the i-Ons on board 10 zones through menus to 5 zone, double CC although that option might only be on the larger panels

But recently all the large panel options (except zone numbers and user number limits, obs) have been enabled on all sizes of panel


So, I've decided to take my work back underground.... to stop it falling into the wrong hands
