How do I address Apollo devices using the XPERT card?
Apollo's analogue addressable ranges of detectors use a unique
method of addressing called the XPERT card. It is a simple coded
card that is fitted into the base and can then be read by the
detector once it is plugged in. In order to set the address, you
need to remove some of the pips located on the card.
Once it has been decided what address the card is to be set to,
lay it on a flat surface, pips down and insert a screwdriver in the
slot on the reverse of the pip to be removed and give it a firm
twist. Once the card had been coded, slide it into the slot on the
side of the detector base, making sure it locks into position. As
the monitor is rotated into the base the remaining pips will
operate the address buttons on the base of the detector and the
address will be read by the detector electronics. The pips on the
XPERT card are numbered 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64. If, for example,
you wish to set the address to 43, you should remove the pips
numbered 1, 2, 8, 32. The pips that are removed should add up to
the address that you wish to set.
