I have an NX-8e panel and on zone 8 I tried to install a System Sensor 5602 fire/RoR detector. I only have one and I ran the two wires from the panel (zone 8) to the 5602. I put the red on one terminal and the black on the second terminal and then had the resistor also attached to the two terminals as well. When I changed the zone type to type 8; the siren went off. Could my problem be that I put the resistor across the two terminals on the System Sensor 5602?
From the manual:
It does look like they essentially have the the resistor across the terminals.
Zone type Description
8. Fire Illuminates the Fire LED and sounds the temporal siren each time the zone is shorted. The Fire LED flashes rapidly indicating a problem if the zone is open.
Previously Zone 8 was used for a door/window sensor. So All I did was update the zone from a type 6 to a type 8 and the panel and siren immediately went off.
The resistor that I used was a 680 (Gold Brown Gray Blue).
Any ideas? Panel configuration issue? Fire detector possibly bad? Wrong fire detector being used?
