    I have a bit of a problem. I have an optima xm6 alarm and my old bell box looks dated. I bought a delta box X. I took the old bell box off. There is a six core wire going into it. It had a siren and strobe.

    The two wire going to siren were red and black.
    The two wires going to strobe were blue and grey
    The other two were wired up together (I think they are the tamper wires)

    On the panel the wires go to as follows
    Red wire to bell +
    Black wire to bell -
    Blue to strobe -
    Grey to strobe +
    The only problem is on the delta box X it's totally different. I've tried wiring it up. But can only get siren to work. No led or strobe.
    The delta box has the following
    Backlight disable
    T
    T
    Eng hold
    Stb
    Bell
    12v +
    12v -
    I would be great full for any ideas
    Cheers

    If I'm right in believing the yellow and green are tamper wires. The have all been wired together. I.e green to green, yellow to yellow. They are nestled together in panel box.

    Should be easy )

    Panel - Deltabell
    T - T
    A - (-12v)
    D - +12V
    B - Bell
    (- Strobe) - STB

    Link tamper as "Deltabell to control panel connection" shows
    Think if you need backlight and disable if not

    Hi serg, thanks for response. I don't want to sound thick. Do you mean take the scb link out on the panel? Then connect my six core wire as follows

    Panel to bell

    Scb t-t
    Scb a- -12v
    Bell +d - +12v
    Bell -b - bell
    - strobe - stb

    What about the +strobe on the panel? And do I use the tamp wires on panel for the scb T and A slots?

    No in the bell box link 0v to one of the T terminals , the 0v in the bell box will connect / come from the A terminal in the panel (scb) , the other T terminal in the bell box goes to the T terminal ( scb) + strobe is not required.. Ps the scb link will need to be removed ..
