Is the 6150 keypad alpha numeric?
No, the Honeywell 6150 is a Fixed English alarm keypad. This means that it has a limited number of pre-programmed words that can be displayed along with the zone numbers. The 6150 will be unable to display custom zone descriptions, but will display zone numbers in the event of a zone fault or alarm. The 6150 keypad, because it is fixed English, is not recommended for certain advanced programming features. Because of the limited feedback, you could accidentally make programming changes with the 6150 that are unintended because you are not made aware of what menu you are in. This could lead to a compromise in your security. If you are looking for an alpha numeric replacement for the 6150, Alarm Grid recommends the Honeywell 6160 alpha numeric alarm keypad.
