    what's the latest revision of the veritas 8

    The one, I've just purchased is rev 5 firmware 3 22.

    Looking at installation Manuel it shows 5 replaceable fuses on mine only 1 fuse the rest are soldered to the PCB.

    Thanks, Ray.

    Nope but when you buy texecom products the year and week they were made is on the packaging and usually on the whiye labels on the products. PCB's used to have yellow stickers on with the manufactured date plus 6 months added, not checked for one in ages to be fair.

    so if made today the yellow sticker would be 09/03/22 if my maths is right but 2136

    so made about 7 weeks ago, so its certainly new, don't think the Veritas has had any revisions for a fair while.

    Prog 51 is the part set suite.
    The zones that are lit are the zones that are on in part 1
    The zones that are not lit are off in part 1
    Eg if landing pir is zone 2 then that needs to be off.
    To set alarm part set 1 then just press part,alarm will start to set .
    Zone 2 will be off in display.

    Defaukt is programed as internal sounder only on part set. Press 01, turn option 2 off. The installation manual is readily available online
