Texecom zone query

I've been doing routine annual maintenance on my Texecom Elite 48 system, and just noticed something odd.
I have four DT-W ricochet devices, all working fine.

In Wintex, when I look at the Zones and Attributes menu, the Ricochet Device Type is shown as "PIR", as expected.
That is, three of them do. The fourth shows as "Shock". It's the same type of device as the others, with all the same settings except that this one is Part 1 Omit.

So why is it shown as Shock instead of PIR?

What does it say via the keypad?
See loads of bugs in wintex
So always check what the panel is saying
In Zone Setup it says this zone is Guard
In Eng Utils it says Zone Status is Secure.

I can't find another menu that gives more detail.

Got it. Attributes says Hybrid and PIR, so it looks like Wintex is wrong as you suggested.

There is a later Wintex, so I'll update and see if it says the same.

Thanks again sparky, very grateful for your help. (y)
