During the commissioning process of new system
installations, the Autolearn facility is used
to wipe ALL the existing configuration information
(including device text and zone information)
and to learn all loop and expansion devices
connected to the Syncro panel.
is also necessary to auto learn the Syncro
panel when adding a network card to the panel
or when changing the address of the panel
on the Syncro network.
the Auto Learn facility should be used with
caution, in particular if the panel has already
been configured, as all previous configuration
information will be erased and cannot be recovered
after the Autolearn sequence is completed.
any new detection devices are added to a Kentec
Syncro control panel, the panel will automatically
identify these devices and will report them
as an “Unexpected Device”. It
is then possible to manually add these devices
to the panel configuration either by the Access
level 3 menu or by the Loop Explorer configuration
software application. Therefore, it is not
necessary to use the Autolearn facility on
panels that have already been commissioned
or when making amendments to existing panel
normal procedure to auto learn the Syncro
control panel is to use the Access Level 3
"Edit Configuration" menu, then
select the "Auto Learn" sub-menu
some cases it is desirable to start the Auto
Learn process as soon as power is applied
to the control panel, rather than waiting
for the panel to initialise completely (to
allow access to the menu option).
A "short cut" has been provided
on the Syncro to permit such an option, by
using the following procedure at any time.
1) If fitted, turn on the internal Write Enable
On the front of the Syncro panel, press and
hold the "Function 2" and "Enter"
Inside the panel, press and release the "SW2
- Reset" button
Continue to hold the Function 2 and Enter
buttons until the "Re-initialising"
message is shown on the Syncro display
Release the Function 2 and Enter buttons.
Turn off the write enable switch (if fitted).
Syncro Focus / Focus+ repeaters also have
a short cut to force them to auto learn.
This is necessary when adding these products
to the network, to set them to the correct
address and to allow them to identify all
other panels on the network
Focus / Focus+ Auto-Learn Shortcut
