Honeywell CDMA-L57 Install Guide
CDMA-L57 Cellular Communications Module Installation Guide
For Documentation and Online Support: http://mywebtech.honeywell.com
The CDMA-L57 Cellular Communications Modules allow the LYNX Touch L5210 and L7000 controls to communicate with
the Central Station via the CDMA cellular network.
Installing the CDMA-L57 in the LYNX Touch Series Control
1. Install the provided FCC label (800-21260) on the control’s case back (see diagram below).
Typical FCC/IC Label Location (L5210 shown)
2. Release the LYNX Touch front case from the back case by depressing the two locking tabs at the top of the unit with
the blade of a medium size screwdriver (see diagram below).
3. Install the CDMA-L57 into the LYNX Touch control front case as shown. Ensure that the connector board is properly
seated into the receptacle on the control.
4. Secure the CDMA-L57 with the three provided screws.
5. Enable the CDMA-L57 device, configure alarm reporting and module supervision and register the device. Refer to the
“Program the Radio” and “Diagnostics” sections in the LYNX Touch Series Installation and Setup Guide (P/N 80019974 or higher).

Checking Signal Strength
When choosing a suitable mounting location, check the communicator’s signal strength to ensure proper operation. For
most installations, using the module’s internal antenna, mounting the control as high as practical, and avoiding large metal
components provides adequate signal strength for proper operation. Use the “CDMA Information” screen to display signal
strength (in dBm).
Select: Security > More > Tools > [Installer Code] > Program > Comm. Diagnostics > CDMA Information
Primary Site RSSI Level Signal strength is displayed by a series of 1 to 5 stars (* weak to ***** strong) or “Not Present” if
there is no signal. To ensure a reliable installation at least 2 (**) stars should consistently be present.
If necessary, relocate the Control to obtain better signal strength (press CDMA Information again to refresh the reading) or
install an external antenna.

FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION (FCC) STATEMENTS
The user shall not make any changes or modifications to the equipment unless authorized by the Installation Instructions or User's Manual. Unauthorized changes
or modifications could void the user's authority to operate the equipment.
FCC CLASS B STATEMENT
This equipment has been tested to FCC requirements and has been found acceptable for use. The FCC requires the following statement for your information:
This equipment generates and uses radio frequency energy and if not installed and used properly, that is, in strict accordance with the manufacturer's instructions,
may cause interference to radio and television reception. It has been type tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B computing device in accordance
with the specifications in Part 15 of FCC Rules, which are designed to provide reasonable protection against such interference in a residential installation.
However, there is no guarantee that interference will not occur in a particular installation. If this equipment does cause interference to radio or television reception,
which can be determined by turning the equipment off and on, the user is encouraged to try to correct the interference by one or more of the following measures:
• If using an indoor antenna, have a quality outdoor antenna installed.
• Reorient the receiving antenna until interference is reduced or eliminated.
• Move the radio or television receiver away from the receiver/control.
• Move the antenna leads away from any wire runs to the receiver/control.
• Plug the receiver/control into a different outlet so that it and the radio or television receiver are on different branch circuits.
• Consult the dealer or an experienced radio/TV technician for help.
