Honeywell FG-1625 and FG-1625T Installation Manual

Ok thanks. I'm going to patch the drywall and just use the surface mount sensor then
Unfortunately, it doesn't sound like this would fit. While you can mount it on it's side, the unit is only 4.5" wide if you do that and the mounting screws are set in a bit so that they would be lined up with your hole and wouldn't have any drywall to attach to unless you mounted it some other way.
Hi I have a 4 in wide by 2.75 vertical hole in the wall where my old BGE sensor was. Will one of these fit in the hole nicely and still have something to grab onto with the screws when I mount them? There is a stud nearby, but not exactly flush with the existing hole so might be a stretch to try to put a gang box in there. Also is it ok to mount this sideways because like I said the hole is 4 in wide by 2.75 inches tall.
Wow! Documentation for the old BGE devices is hard to come by. Honeywell doesn't currently have anything available on it. So far I'm striking out, but I have one other possible source of info. I'll let you know what I find.
Thanks for the reply. There are no dip switches. This is actually a BGE.PN25 unit. At least twenty years old!! The unit blinking is on the highest ceiling, approx 15 ft. I took apart the other unit and noticed a conical spring, which I guess is the mechanism that sets off the alarm. Can this be reset? Is this unit still available? We're planning on selling the house so I don't want to upgrade the entire alarm system, but I have to do something about the blinking light!! I appreciate any help you can provide!!
Compare dip switches (Latch and LED) between the two detectors. I imagine they are set differently. If they are the same, how are they set?
the light is blinking on my detector. There is no battery as it is hard wired. I have two units in the house in two separate rooms and only one is blinking. Is it possible to reset the switch?
You sure can Wayne.
Can I replace the FG 1515 with a new FG 1625
The FG1625 is a wired glass break detector. There would be no battery to replace. What is the actual low battery message you are receiving?
My FG 1625 indicate low battery. Where do I replace battery

FlexGuard® FG-1625/FG-1625T Glassbreak Detector Supplemental Information
Refer to Installation Instructions and diagrams (next page) when installing this product
1. General Information
The FG-1625/FG-1625T glassbreak detector senses the sound of breaking plate, tempered, laminated, wired, coated and sealed insulating glass. These products are both UL and ULC listed.

8. Wiring the Detector
Refer to the wiring diagrams (page 1) to select the appropriate wiring configuration. NOTE: This sensor must be connected to a UL Listed power supply or UL Listed control unit capable of supplying a minimum of four hours of standby power.

12. Remote LED Enable/Disable Mode
The detector’s Remote LED Enable/Disable Mode allows you to enable or disable the detector’s LEDs with the FG-701 Glassbreak Simulator. To enable or disable the LEDs with the FG-701 Activation Code: 1. Set LED switch, S4 position 4, to off. 2. Enter Test Mode, and then exit Test Mode. 3. Within two (2) seconds, enter Test Mode again; this changes LED enable/disable status. 4. Clap your hands to test the LEDs. If enabled, the green LED will flicker. If disabled, the green LED will remain off.

2. Choosing Mounting Location
The preferred mounting location for the device is on a wall or ceiling, opposite the protected glass. For the best detector performance, select a mounting location that is: • within 7.6 m (25 feet) of the protected glass; • within clear view of the protected glass; • at least 2 m (6.5 feet) from the floor; • at least 1 m (3.3 feet) from forced air ducts; • at least 1 m (3.3 feet) from sirens or bells greater than 5 cm (2 inches) in diameter. • between the protected glass and any heavy window coverings that may be present. Alternatively, when heavy window coverings are present, the detector can be mounted on the frame of the window. Avoid mounting the detector on the same wall as the protected glass, on free-standing posts or pillars, or in rooms with noisy equipment (air compressors, bells, power tools, etc.), if this equipment is operated when the detector is armed.

9. Testing the Detector
The detector should be tested at least once each year. Test the detector with the FG-701 Glassbreak Simulator. The model FG-700 Glassbreak Simulator can also be used if it is set for the TEMPered glass sound. Other simulators will not give accurate indication of range. To enter Test Mode manually: 1. Open the front cover. 2. Use a screwdriver to short the Test Mode pads on the PC board (see diagram on next page). 3. Close the front cover. The detector’s green LED blinks approximately once per second to indicate that it has entered Test Mode. To enter the Test Mode with the FG-701: 1. Stand within 4.6 m (15 feet) of the detector. 2. Switch the FG-701 to ACTIVATE and MANual modes. 3. Point the front [speaker] of the glassbreak simulator towards the detector. Press the red START button to send a short activation code. When the detector enters Test Mode, the green LED on the detector flashes about once per second. If the green LED does not flash, move closer to the detector and repeat the procedure. Testing the Detector (flex and audio signals): To test the FG-1625/FG-1625T, do the following: 1. Place the detector in Test Mode. 2. Set the FG-701 switches to the TEST and FLEX positions. 3. Position the FG-701 near the farthest point of the protected glass, and point the speaker directly at the detector. If window coverings are present, close them fully and hold the FG-701 between the coverings and the protected glass. 4. Press the red START button. The simulator clicks on and starts an 8-second armed period. 5. Generate a flex signal by carefully striking the glass with a cushioned tool. The FG-701 responds with a burst of glassbreak audio. If the detector receives both the flex and audio signals properly, its red Alarm LED lights. (Red Alarm LED does not latch in Test Mode). Testing the Detector (audio signals only): The FG-701 can also be used to test the detector’s ability to receive audio signals only. See the FG-701 Operating Instructions for additional information. When it receives the audio signal, the detector flickers its green Event LED. Exiting Test Mode: When you have finished testing, exit Test Mode by following the same procedure used to enter Test Mode. The FG-1625/T will automatically exit Test Mode five minutes after the last event is detected.

Film Technologies International, Inc.’s GLASS-GARD GGLL 1200 has been evaluated with this product by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc. at Honeywell’s request 3 In compliance with Underwriters Laboratories of Canada’s Standard for Intrusion Detection Units (CAN/ULC-S306-M89): a. Plate glass 3mm (1/8 in.) to 10mm (3/8 in.) can be protected. b. ULC recognizes a maximum range for protecting sealed insulating glass and coated glass of 3.8 m (12.5 ft). 4 UL recognizes a maximum range for protecting sealed insulating glass of 6.1m (20 ft.) with sensitivity set at maximum.

3. Testing Mounting Location With 9V Battery
You may test the detector in the desired mounting location before drilling/wiring. If the 9V battery cannot supply sufficient power, the detector will not operate and the red and green LEDs will flash on/off. Follow the procedure described in “Testing the Detector” (next column) to confirm proper operation.

Alarm relay timing is not affected by the latched Alarm LED. Reset the Alarm LED by removing/restoring power, or by toggling the detector in and out of Test Mode. 3 LEDs can be enabled/disabled using FG-701.

6. Enabling Optional Rear Tamper (FG-1625T only)
The FG-1625T is equipped with a combination normallyclosed (NC) cover and wall tamper switches. Each unit is shipped with the cover tamper operational, and the wall tamper disabled. To enable the rear tamper, remove the plastic tab on the back of the detector, using needle-nose pliers. The wall tamper arm will then extend through the hole. Proceed with the following mounting instructions to install the wall tamper screw.

10. LED Indicators
The detector is equipped with two LEDs: a green Event LED and a red Alarm LED. When the LEDs are enabled, they light in a variety of patterns to convey the detector’s operational status. The following table summarizes the LED messages.

7. Mounting the Detector
NOTE: If ceiling mounted, the end with the hole (micro-phone end) should face the glass being protected. 1. If using optional Wall Tamper (FG-1625T): Mark the mounting location for the wall tamper screw based on the final location of the detector. Then, install the wall tamper screw so that it will just make contact with the bottom of the tamper cavity when the unit is mounted. Use a flat head 4.2mm or 4.8mm screw (#8 or #10). 2. Position the unit over the wall tamper screw (if used), then mark the mounting screw and wire openings. If required by the location, install wall anchors for the mounting screws. 3. Secure the unit to the wall or ceiling, oriented so the microphone has the best line of sight to the protected glass.
