    Veritas Excel Part-Set Problem

    I think I'll draw stumps - at least for the time being. I can't see anything wrong with my wiring or settings so it's probably best to leave it a while and come back to it with a fresh pair of eyes in a few weeks. At which point I hope it'll dawn on me where I have gone wrong. I can live without...

    Veritas Excel Part-Set Problem

    Well I must admit that I'm getting pretty stumped now. To enable the system to work with a default config I ended up linking-out a couple of zones and moving the zone wiring of one PIR. I then tested a Part-Set exactly as I had been doing before - with the same result - both inside sounder &...

    Veritas Excel Part-Set Problem

    Is the intention to check the part-set behaviour with factory defaults? If so, because the default part-set config is quite different to mine, I don't think that's 100% possible without making some (relatively minor) changes to the zone wiring and linking out some of the zones, so it wouldn't be...

    Veritas Excel Part-Set Problem

    First thing to say is that, because of the control panel location in a spare room, I'm not using the Excel's 16 Ohm built-in speaker and so I have disconnected this completely. I have replaced it with a 16 Ohm extension speaker located near the keypad and connected to the loudspeaker terminals...

    Veritas Excel Part-Set Problem

    Well, I'm still scratching my head on this: as far as I can see, the setting of Misc 01 Option 2 (both 'ON' & 'OFF') makes absolutely no difference to which sounders are activated by a Part-Set alarm. In other words, with this option set to either On or Off, an alarm causes both the Internal and...

    Veritas Excel Part-Set Problem

    Thanks for the reply. Yes, Misc 01 Options 1 - 3 are what I assumed I needed, and from the installation manual it looked to me that the factory defaults (all 'ON') are for Internal Sounder Only operation - so I left them alone. You've got me wondering now though, if they changed the logic for...

    Veritas Excel Part-Set Problem

    Afternoon all, I've recently installed a Veritas Excel control panel and Odyssey X-BE sounder to replace an existing setup. The wiring is original but the PIRs were replaced a couple of years ago. All good apart from the fact that I'm struggling to get a Part Set to work in the way I want. I...

    Texecom Odyssey X tamper

    Yes, thanks, that all makes sense. The bit that has been confusing me is at the top of the previous page (8) - the bit that starts "An additional screw may be required...". I wasn't sure whether that was simply referring to the removal-from-tamper or to something else. Anyway, as I said in my...

    Texecom Odyssey X tamper

    Thanks for your reply. Do you mean the self tapper on the breakout or the one on the internal lid?

    Texecom Odyssey X tamper

    I'm replacing an old external bell box with a Texecom Odyssey X-BE and I was wondering if anyone could clarify the method of tamper adjustment when mounting this unit. As far as I can tell the X-BE has a single microswitch that is operated on the switch body by the head of a self-tapper for the...
