XR200 & XR2400F Firmware Version 108 Update
February 09, 2001
Firmware Update Effective February 12, 2001, all XR200 and XR2400F Command Processor panels are being shipped from the factory with version 108 (2/06/01) firmware. This version is an update from the 108 (1/09/01) firmware previously shipped and contains updated operation.
Updated Operation Keypad Display Operation The XR200 keypad character display and key press operation is improved. Previously, an XR200 with firmware version 107 or a previous version of 108 may have occasionally experienced a period where the keypad display operated slower and on occasion a key press was missed.
Zone Names through 895 When connected with an 895 Voice Module, the XR200 now provides a zone name to the 895 for voice annunciation. Previously when requesting the status of a zone through the 895 voice module, the status was annunciated but the zone name was not.
462N/Remote Link Connection The XR200 now provides improved operation after a failed upload/download connect attempt using Remote Link. Previously, when attempting to connect using a 462N Network Interface card, and the response from the panel was not received by Remote Link due to a bad wire connection, the panel sent a panel busy message on any subsequent attempts.
The XR200 does not pickup the telephone line when called from an SCS-105 service receiver if an upload/download session is already in progress with Remote Link through the 462N Network Interface card. Previously, the panel would pick up and hold the line until the 462N/ Remote Link connection was terminated.Note: Alarm messages were not affected by this problem.
Fire Alarm Output When a user turns off the fire alarm output through the user menu or through Remote Link, the panel will now automatically turn the output back on if a fire alarm is still in the keypad display. Previously, the output stayed off even though an alarm was still in the display.Note: The Fire Alarm Output is turned off after a Sensor Reset.
Sensor Reset If a supervisory zone alarm is being displayed, and a sensor reset is performed using Remote Link, the panel will now perform the sensor reset operation completely. Previously, the keypad would continue to display the supervisory alarm after the Sensor Reset operation and the zone was restored.
