Keypads (LCD/LED), expanders (PEXP/ZEXP/WEXP), Proxy, Voice Dialer (VD), Ajax GSM/GPRS/LAN and others

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. Is there compatibility between Eclipse control panels and modules ?

Yes, each Eclipse control panel model is compatible with the rest of the modules

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. How long the ECLIPSE BUS line (cable) can be?
    Up to 1 000m –  it might be necessary to use additional power supply  to ensure 12 V DC

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. How to add a new module (LCD/LED, Proxy, PEXP/ZEXP/WEXP) to an ECLIPSE system?
    1. turn off the power (main 220V and battery) on the control panel
    2. connect the new device to the BUS terminals of the control panel
    3. turn on the power of the control panel and wait for system initialization
    4. enter in ENGINEER mode
    5. choose a free address 80x0, for example:

 8030>DEV3 ID

 [Free] [_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _]

  1. press the TAMPER switch of the new device. For ZONE and PGM expanders the TAMPER is located between the extender’s terminals
  2. upon successful completion of the registration, the screen of the working keypad will display the newly recorded device type (LCD/LED, PRX, PEXP/ZEXP/WEXP) and its unique ID number. Example:

 8030>DEV3 ID

 [ZEXP] [21696983]

  1. confirm by pressing ENTER

How to check if the zone is properly balanced ?

Depending on the selected connection diagram on address 2000 you can check the resistance for each zone on address 20X9, where “X” is zone number. On Eclipse 8 you can perform only “Walk test” at address 0020.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  1. How to connect a fire detector to an ECLIPSE system ?
    There are two ways of connecting a fire detector.
     

1.  wire line – fire detector with relay base

Connect power to AUX +/- and the relay outputs to COM and zone that is programmed as "FIRE". Depending on the selected connection diagram add an appropriate zone resistor. The other zone’s settings are on address 20xx.

2. wire line – fire detector base without relay (Eclipse 32 only)

Connect the detector to PGM4. On address 3000 set value 1 and PGM4 is now logical Zone 99. Select a logical zone from 9 to 32 and program it as "FIRE”. Then attach this zone it to the logical Zone 99. The EOL resistor in the detector should be 2 kohm.

Example for fire detector to Zone 9:

On address 2090 set device [01] with input [99].

On address 2091 set [4] – zone type “FIRE”.
