XR200 & XR2400F Firmware Version 109 Update
April 13, 2001
Firmware Update Effective the fourth week of April 2001, all XR200 and XR2400F Command Processor panels are being shipped from the factory with version 109 (4/10/01) firmware. This version is an update from the 108 (2/6/01) firmware previously shipped and contains new features and updated operation.
New Features CRC and Sequence Number Communication between Remote Link, version 1.02 and the XR200 or XR2400F is improved. Upload/download messages between Remote Link and the panel now contain CRC and Sequence Number checking. The current Remote Link version 1.01 (3/9/01) is compatible with the new XR200 or XR2400F version 109 (4/10/01) firmware but operates without CRC and Sequence Number checking.
Fault Zones Display The panel now displays a list of all faulted disarmed zones when any top row select key is pressed on the keypad during the status list display. Zones for all areas in the same partition as the keypad will be displayed. When bad zones are being displayed on the keypad, they will be shown as -FAULT instead of -BAD.
Updated Operation S90 Error Message When connected to Remote Link through an SCS-105 single line receiver, the panel now provides improved communication when requesting events. Previously, on a rare occasion, the panel would send an invalid message, causing the SCS-105 to send an S90 invalid message error to Remote Link. This only occurred when requesting events.
Panel Response When programming the panel from Remote Link, the panel no longer replies to Remote Link with a redundant second response. Previously, some responses from the panel were sent twice.
Remote Zone Programming All zone programming sent by Remote Link is accepted by the panel. Previously, if a zone sent to the panel was a zone programmed to provide a momentary or follow relay output action for the armed short zone state, 50% of the time, the next zone sent was ignored by the panel and not programmed into memory.
