DSC

1832

DSC Powerseries 1616 1832 and 1864 are all basically the same system, with different number of zones, codes and limits. With this in mind some of the programming changes slightly between models. If you've worked with DSC before you'll have no trouble picking  this up.

Default Installer Code: 5555

Default Master Code: 1234

If you have lost the installer code, the system must be factory defaulted and reprogrammed.

Factory default system

1) Power the panel down.

2) Remove any wires from the zone 1 and PGM 1 terminal. 

3) Wire a loop of cable between them, shorting the 2 terminals out.

4) Power the panel up and after 10 seconds everything should be defaulted and you can remove the wire loop. If not, the panel may be locked.

5) The way to test if the panel has been successfully defaulted is to try *8 5555.

Listen when the panel powers up, if it clicks back and forth 10 times the panel is locked, you are going to have to replace the board.
