Galaxy 2-20 Expansion


Recommended Posts

Hi 

 

I’m about to start wiring my panel this weekend. The 12 zones on board are not going to be sufficient. I have therefore ordered a Rio 072 and a wireless c079-2  modules to expand the zone count. I am planning to use 17 wired zones and 2 wireless zones. I presume this will be possible as I am below the maximum 20 zone count. My panel is running v1.5 of the firmware. I am also planning to add the hardware to enable me to use the SelfMon app in the future. Any advice on the compatibility of the above with my system greatly appreciated

All sounds fine. 1.56 is the latest firmware, with 1.53 being suggested minimum for SelfMon.  You may need to disable the RF portal virtual RIO if it ends up grabbing RIO address 2 that you set on the c072. You can disable the rf portal virtual RIO in menu 51.60

Thank you, can the firmware be updated?

Yes, all G2 panels can be brought up to 1.56. This requires a flash lead or the same can be achieved with a low cost USB TTY lead and a jumper wire.
