Enabling or Disabling EOL Supervision in DSC PowerSeries Panels
By default, DSC PowerSeries panels (PC1832, PC1616, PC5010, etc) monitor each zone circuit with the use of a 5600Ω end-of-line resistor (EOL). This allows the alarm panel to distinguish between a zone normal, and a short circuit condition. It is recommended to use end-of-line resistors on hardwired zones, although there may be cases where you need to disable circuit supervision.
EOL Resistors are enabled or disabled using Option 1 in programming section 013. If Option 1 is OFF, EOL supervision is enabled. Conversely, if Option 1 is ON, EOL supervision is disabled.
