Does the VISTA 20P have on-board relays?

The Vista-20P and Vista-15P (version 2 or higher), and Vista-21IP (all versions) feature on-board voltage triggers. The Vista-15P/20P version 1 panels have these outputs, but the specifications differ, and are not shown here. Though these triggers are not a dry contact closure, they may be used to activate a relay output via panel programming.

Either of the wiring harnesses shown above can be used to connect to the on-board triggers. The Honeywell 4120TR is a wiring harness that should cover all your bases. Specifications on the triggers are:

Output 17 (trigger 1)

Floating negative trigger which provides 15 Ohms to ground when activated (on) and is open when off. This trigger provides 12VDC at 100mA.

Output 18 (trigger 2)

Floating negative trigger which provides 100 Ohms to ground when activated (on) and is open when off. This trigger provides 12VDC at 20mA.

Either trigger can be inverted, meaning that instead of floating (not being connected to ground) in the normal state, they can connect to ground in that state, providing their voltage and current constantly, and would remove the ground reference, thereby taking voltage away, when activated or turned on. This is the programming option used to allow the trigger to power up to 2 4-wire smoke detectors and reset them via panel programming, without having to add any additional relays. The programming options for the trigger are exactly the same as for a 4204 or 4229 relay, with the additional option of inverting the triggers.

This is what I have for hardware -4229 expansion board -COSMOD2W- Altronixs AL624 with 1.2 amp current -- seven 2WTA-B smokes. How would this all be connected together? From what I have gathered I will need to program the trigger *17 using Field *79 & *80 on the vista panel and not use Zone 1. Thanks for the help.
The triggers wouldn’t offer enough current, so you’d have to have the trigger and a relay, and a power supply
Why are the triggers not advisable to use with the COSMOD2W with the 20-P Panel?
We offer a trigger cable at https://www.alarmgrid.com/products/honeywell-4120tr
where can i get one of the connectors shown above?
Correct, you would have to upgrade to an AlarmNet alarm communicator if you are interested in switching to us.
As then if I need monitoring service with your Co. it's not possible with this brnd of cell communicators?
You should contact your alarm monitoring company. We don't support the Starlink communicators at this time.
I own a safeguard 3000 with an Star link 3-4g and allways in my cell show the alarm as armed but the real status change, why?? What I have to do in order to change the red to green or arm and disarm in my cell?
