263LTE-V5 Cellular Module Now Supports the XR100 and XR500 Panels
For customers wanting to upgrade legacy XR100 and XR500 panels, there is new firmware available from DMP to support these panels on the Verizon LTE network using the new 263LTE-V5 Cellular Communicator. Because the standard 263LTE-V unit is not compatible with the older XR100/XR500 panels, the 263LTE-V5 Cellular Communicator is designed specifically for this purpose. The new LTE Cellular Communicator is now available and will provide fully supervised alarm communication path over the Verizon LTE network. The 263LTE-V5 installs on the panel inside the enclosure and is powered by the panel so no additional enclosure, power supply, or battery back-up are needed.
Please note the Verizon LTE network does not support MyAccess messaging. Additionally, DMP is making available Model 464 (XR100/XR500 Cellular Adapter Board) for use when adding cellular communication to XR100 or XR500 panels when upgrading these panels that do not currently have cellular installed. If you are upgrading a current system that has cellular, you will not need the Model 464 as it is already installed on the control panel.
For compatibility, the XR100/XR500 control panel firmware should be updated to Version 213 or higher. With the correct firmware, the LTE network connectivity provides the longest viable cellular lifespan available.
