XR5 Firmware Version 104 Update

November 15, 2000

Firmware Update Effective November 2000, all XR5 Commercial Fire panels are being shipped from the factory with version 104 (11/7/00) firmware. This version is an update from the 104 (10/15/99) firmware previously shipped and contains updated operation.

Updated Operation Fire Verify Zone Trip The automatic sensor reset that occurs because a fire verify zone is tripped will not clear a pre-existing supervisory zone alarm from the keypad display. Previously, the supervisory alarm was cleared from the display. Only a sensor reset performed from a keypad or Remote Link clears the display of fire or supervisory alarms.

Second Phone Number Characters When uploading or downloading with Remote Link, the XR5FC and XR5SL now sends all 32 characters of the second telephone number. Previously, of the 32 characters sent by the panel, the digits sent in positions 15, 16, 31, and 32 were sent incorrectly. Second telephone numbers less than 15 characters in length were not affected by this problem.

Power Fail Delay Hours When uploading or downloading with Remote Link, the XR5FC and XR5SL now sends both digits of the Power Fail Delay Hours programming. Previously, only one digit of the Power Fail Delay Hours could be sent or received. Both digits were always able to be programmed at the keypad.

Upgrading/Ordering New Firmware New firmware PROMs may be obtained by calling Customer Service at 1-800-641-4282 and ordering the XR5/UPDATE. The cost is $2.00 for each firmware update PROM.
