DSC AMP-704 - Installation Manual
The AMP-704 Point Interface Module (PIM) allows for the connection of non-powered or ex-
ternally powered hardwired devices to the Addressable Multiplex Loop (AML). The four in-
puts and cover tamper can be individually enrolled as zones on the control panel. The
module is jumper-selectable for either N/C loops, SEOL, or DEOL resistors .
The AMP-704 PIM uses a 2-wire connection for power and to communicate with the control
panel. This, in combination with low power devices, simplifies wiring and reduces installation
cost. The AMP-704’s low current draw also maximizes the number of modules that can be
connected to an addressable loop. For additional information on AML wiring, please refer to
the compatible panel’s Installation Manuals.

Control Panel Compatibility
• PC4020/PC4020CF v3.0 and higher
• PC5010 v2.0 and higher*
• PC5015 v2.2 and higher*
• PC5020/PC5020CF v3.0 and higher*
*Requires PC5100 Addressable Expansion Module
For Commercial Fire applications use the AMP-704 only in conjunction with models
PC4020CF and PC5020CF control units.
Select a mounting location for the AMP-704. The module should be located in a dry location
and as close as possible to the points to be protected. Alternatively to the method explained
below, the PCB may be mounted in a metal cabinet using the standoffs provided with the
unit, refer to Figure 3.
1. Remove the cover using a flat blade screwdriver to push in the tab at the bottom of the
2. Pull the addressable loop and input wires through the wiring access holes located at the
bottom of the backplate.
3. Mount the device securely to the wall using the two mounting tabs on the backplate or
using the two mounting holes inside the backplate. To use the holes inside, the PCB must
first be removed. To do this, remove the 3 screws holding the PCB and lift it out.
: When replacing the PCB, do not over-tighten the screws, the PCB
could be damaged.
If the mounting tabs are not being used to mount the device, they can be broken off.
4. Wire the module and configure the EOL supervision jumper as per the instructions below.
5. Replace the cover and insert the cover screw.

Connect the AMP-704 wiring as indicated below:
: Connect only DSC addressable devices to the addressable loop
connections. Connection of any other type of device will impair operation. Any
devices other than addressable devices that require power to operate must be
Loop Current vs. Wiring Distance
Do not route any wiring
over circuit boards. Maintain at least
1" (25.4mm) separation.
To prevent wires from falling onto batteries,
secure them to the enclosure or to the plastic
standoff located under the control panel.
For fire installations,

INSTALL BATTERY & AC WIRING AS SHOWN
A minimum 1/4" (6.4mm) separation must be main-
tained at all points between battery/primary AC wiring and all other
wiring connections. The AMP-704 is mounted inside the compatible
control unit's enclosure using 3 nylon spacers 3/8" (9.6mm).

ration is not for UL installations (use only with AMP-704 INT model,
which is not UL Listed).
For Residential Burglary Applications
Single End-of-Line (SEOL) (default)
This configuration allows the use of N/C (normally closed) and/or
N/O (normally open) contacts. Use in conjunction with one 5.6K
end-of-line resistor: DSC Model EOLR-2.
For Commercial Burglary Applications
Double End-of-Line (DEOL)
DEOL resistors allow the zone to be monitored for
fault, tamper, secure, and violated conditions.
Only N/C (normally closed) contacts can be used
with this configuration. Use in conjuction with two
5.6K end-of-line resistors: DSC Model EOLR-2.
For Residential and Commercial Fire Applications (software version 1.0F only)
Single End-of-Line (SEOL) Loops
This configuration allows the use of N/O (normally open) contacts only. Multiple N/O
contacts can be wired in parallel. Use in conjunction with one 2.2K end-of-line resis-
tor: DSC Model EOLR-1.
The AMP-704 has a total of 5 serial numbers (SNs), one for the cover tamper and one for
each of the four inputs. The serial numbers can be found on the inside of the front cover.
Each serial number can be enrolled individually into the control panel via Installer Program-
ming ([*][Installer Code]). This procedure is outlined in the PC4020 Installation Manual
and in the PC5100 Installation Manual for PowerSeries panels.
The AMP-704 serial numbers do not need to be enrolled as consecutive zones in
the system. Do not combine burglary and fire devices on the same loop.
The module is shipped with a separate label pack with individual SN stickers that can be
easily inserted into the Installation Manual for recording purposes. If required, the serial
numbers can be determined from the tamper serial number (ROOT SN) located on the
printed circuit board. This 5-digit number begins with the digit 2 and ends with the digits 0
or 5. The 4 input serial numbers are numbered in sequence from the tamper serial number.
For example, If the root serial number is 21230 then the serial number for inputs 1 through 4
will be 21231, 21232, 21233 and 21234.
