DSC Powerseries PC1616/PC1832/PC1864 EOL Resistors vs Closed Loop Programming

DSC Powerseries PC1616/PC1832/PC1864 EOL Resistors vs Closed Loop Programming

By default, DSC Powerseries wired panels are expecting each zone to have EOL resistors installed.  If you are not going to use EOL resitors, you will need to turn Section 013 Option 1 to ON otherwise your zones will show open. 

After you exit programming, you must power down the panel and after it powers back up the change should take effect.

Note: fire zones ALWAYS need EOL resitors installed.
