Serial Interface Module

INSTALLATION AND SETUP GUIDE
GENERAL INFORMATION
The 4100SM Serial Interface Module can be used as any of
the following:

A direct-wire downloading device that is used in
conjunction with the Compass downloading software to
program compatible control panels without having to use
a modem or telephone line. This is done by either
connecting the 4100SM to the serial port of a PC or to a
GSM communicating unit.
• An interface device that is used to connect a serial
printer or a PC using the Honeywell Navigator Reporter
software to control panels that feature event logging
with printer output capabilities.
• An interface device that is used to connect a control
panel to 3rd party Home/Facility Automation hardware
and software.
The downloading function is applicable in UL listed
installations only when someone is present at the site while
the downloading. However, the 4100SM is UL Listed for
use as an interface to an event logging printer.
The 4100SM is packaged with everything that is needed to
connect the RS-232 serial port of most IBM-compatible fixed
or portable PCs to the control panel. This includes:





1.5-foot alligator clip leads (4)
4142TR voltage trigger cable (9 pos.)
10-foot DB25 male to DB25 male RS-232 serial cable
DB25 female to DB25 female RS-232 gender changer
DB25 male to DB25 female null modem adapter
DB25 female to DB9 female adapter
Bracket and insulator

Important: Check your control panel’s installation
instructions to verify that your software supports the
feature and any programming options that may need to be
set for proper operation. Also, verify that you have
downloading
software
that
supports
direct-wire
downloading for the control panel you are programming.

You must decide which serial port you want to use, and then
determine which type of connector (DB25 female, DB25
male, DB9 male, or USB) is provided for that port.
Refer to the following table for instructions on how to
connect each type of PC connector.
Type of PC Connector

Connection Instructions

DB25 female connector

Use the RS-232 cable to make
connections between the serial
module and the PC serial port.

DB25 male connector

Use the RS-232 cable and gender
changer to make connections.

DB9 male connector

Use the RS-232 cable and
DB9/DB25 adapter to make
connections.

USB Port

Use a USB to serial converter to
make connections.

NULL MODEM NOTE: The 4100SM requires that your
PC have a DTE pinout in order to communicate properly.
Check the documentation supplied with your PC to
determine if the connector for the serial port you have
chosen has a DTE pinout (meaning that your PC transmits
data on pin 2 and receives data on pin 3) or a DCE pinout
(meaning that your PC transmits data on pin 3 and receives
data on pin 2). If your PC connector has a DCE pinout, you
must attach the supplied null modem adapter to the RS-232
cable to ensure proper pin connections.
If you are not sure whether your serial port is DTE or DCE,
assume that it is DTE. If a problem occurs, refer to the "In
Case of Difficulty” section of this document.

The 4100SM can be used to connect the control panel to a
serial printer or to a PC using the Honeywell Navigator
Reporter software to print the Event Log. The 4100SM
connects to the control panel’s circuit board via the supplied
4142TR voltage trigger cable. As shown in Figures 4 and 5,
terminals 1, 6, 7, and 8 on the 4100SM are used. The
colored jumpers may need to be cut, depending on the serial
printer being used. See note 3 below for details. The
connections shown in Figures 4 and 5 are the same for the
printer and the PC.

To use the 4100SM for direct-wire downloading, proceed as

Using the 4100SM for Direct-Wire Downloading

1.

Go to the nearest control keypad and enter the Installer
Code + [#] + [5].

The PC will display a “REQUESTING SESSION”
message and commence a direct-wire downloading
session. At this point, you may do an upload, download,
or any other PC operation in the same manner that you
would if a remote connection via the telephone line
were used. The communications will take place at a
much higher speed, however.
The control will
automatically return to normal alarm system function
when the downloading session is completed.

Before using the 4100SM for direct-wire downloading, the
downloading software must be checked to ensure it is
configured to enable direct-wire operation. To check the
software, proceed as follows:

The control panel will continuously and indefinitely

NOTES:

Home/Facility Automation Connections

1.

The 4100SM can be used to connect the control panel to 3rd
party Home/Facility Automation hardware and software.
The 4100SM connects to the control panel’s circuit board via
the supplied 4142TR voltage trigger cable. As shown in
Figures 6 and 7, terminals 3, 6, 7, and 8 on the 4100SM are
used.

If Earth Ground Fault Sensing is enabled in the control
panel you may get an earth ground fault indication if
you use a printer (or PC) which has a 3 prong grounded
power cord.

2. The 4100SM is supplied with a 10-foot RS-232
cable. A longer cable or extension cable can be
used if the 4100SM and the printer are separated
by more than 10 feet, but the total cable length
should be less than 50 feet.
3. Most printers either ignore the CTS, DSR and CD

NOTES:

signals, or require them to be high (i.e., 3-15VDC as
measured on RS-232 DB25 connector pins 5, 6, & 8
respectively with respect to ground pin 7). The 4100SM
Module sets these pins high. If the printer being used
will not operate with these pins high, then clip the blue
(CTS), white (DSR) or red (CD) jumpers on the 4100SM
module to set the corresponding signal floating.
Important pins on the RS-232 cable are pin 3 (data out),
pin 7 (ground), and pin 20 (DTR - ready).

The null modem adapter may be required to match the
outputs of your computer’s serial port to the 4100SM. To
determine if this is necessary, proceed as follows:
1.

Connect the 4100SM to the control panel and to your
PC as described previously in this document. Do not
attach the null modem adapter.

2.

Connect a DC voltmeter, set to a 15-volt (or higher)
range, across the black wire on 4100SM terminal 7(–),
and the wire on terminal 3(+). No voltage should be
seen at this time. If a voltage is found, check the
connections between the control and the 4100SM.

3.

Go to the COMM screen after selecting DIRECT WIRE
and hit the [ENTER] key two times until the
REQUESTING SESSION message appears. At this
time, the meter reading should jump to approximately
12 volts for few seconds and then return to zero. If this
does not occur, there is a possibility that the transmit
and receive pins on the computer are reversed. Insert
the Null Modem adapter supplied and try again.
