4208EX Universal Eight-Zone Remote Point Module
INSTALLATION AND SETUP GUIDE FEATURES
The Honeywell 4208EX Remote Point Module is an 8-zone expander that allows use of available expansion zones provided by Honeywell controls that support VPlex polling loop devices. Features of this device include: • Can be optionally powered from an external DC power supply to reduce the current draw from the polling loop. For ULC installations, you must use a ULC Listed UPS with Class 2 output. • Uniquely identifies 8 EOLR supervised zones. All zones use either 2k resistors (supplied), or, for high security applications employing Form C contacts, 3.9k resistors must be used (also supplied). • Can be used in Zone Number or Serial Number mode, depending upon DIP Switch settings. In Serial Number mode, each serial number in the selected group can be assigned to any zone number. • Double-balanced zone supervision option, depending upon DIP switch settings. • Fast (10msec) response selectable for Loops A & B. • Tamper protection.
Polling loop and protection loop wires can be brought in either through the back or front of the unit by removing the knockouts. Use 22-gauge twisted pair wire for polling loop connections. All protection loops use 2k EOL resistors (3.9k if using Form C contacts in ULC high-security applications). A maximum resistance of 300 ohms is allowed on protection loops (excluding EOLR). See Figure 2 for standard connections. Keep in mind that connections to the polling loop are always required, while power supply connections are optional.

Power should be disconnected before proceeding. Be sure to mount the 4208EX before making any wire connections.
Mount the module either horizontally or vertically by installing two #6 screws directly into the wall and sliding the keyholes in the back of the unit onto the screws. Use an additional #6 screw to secure the case back to the wall through hole near the back wire knockout. Wires can exit from the side or the back knockout of the housing. Tamper protection is required when the unit is mounted remotely (required for ULC S304 applications). To enable, set DIP Switch 8 to OFF and attach the tamper magnet (provided) to the module’s inside cover (see Figure 1). Enable the expansion zone tamper option at the control (program field ✼24 = 0). If the module’s cover is removed, the magnet attached to the cover (positioned near the reed switch) will cause a tamper signal to be sent to the control for every active zone on the module.

Figure 2. Summary of Connections
DOUBLE-BALANCED ZONES Up to eight normally-closed contacts and shunt resistors can be connected to each zone input on the 4208EX (see Figure 3). This does not increase the number of zones reporting to the control panel. The zones will operate as described below. • Any contact opening will be reported to the panel as a fault on the host zone. • A break in the loop wiring will be reported as trouble/tamper on the host zone. A short in the loop wiring will be reported as • trouble/tamper on the host zone.
Double-balanced zones must NOT be used for Fire or any other zone type which uses a “short” as an indication of an alarm.
For ULC S559 applications, the unit must be mounted in a ULC Listed Fire Alarm cabinet. When mounted inside the cabinet with the control, the 4208EX should be mounted horizontally and does not need tamper protection, provided the cabinet is supervised. Insert two screws into the raised metal tabs leaving the heads app. 1/8” exposed, then hang the 4208EX using the two keyhole slots in the back.

If learning or entering a serial number and “Duplicate of Zone XX” is displayed; another device with that same serial number is already in the system. In that case, use a different serial number group setting on the 4208EX.
When using this module with a Honeywell FBII control panel, it is necessary to cut the wire jumper as shown below in Figure 5 and set dip switch positions 6 and 7 according to Table 3.
DIP SWITCH SETTINGS Zone Assignment Mode: In the zone assignment mode, the DIP Switches on the 4208EX are used to assign the unit to a group of 8 consecutive zones. These zone numbers, once designated for the 4208EX, cannot be used for anything else, even if you don’t use all 8. Use Table 1 for DIP Switch settings.
Serial Number Mode: In the serial number mode, the DIP Switches on the 4208EX are used to assign the unit to a group of 8 serial numbers. You can assign any serial number to any zone number (except hardwire zone numbers of the control) and you do not lose zone numbers if you don’t use all eight loops on the 4208EX. Use Table 2 for DIP Switch settings.
Figure 5. Making Module Compatible with Honeywell FBII Control Panels
FBII PROGRAMMING Set the DIP switches on the 4208EX as instructed below (see Figure 5):
If learning a serial number by faulting its associated loop, make sure that other polling loop devices are not activated, as they may interfere with the device being learned.
Select fast/slow response for Loops A and B using DIP Switch 1: Fast = OFF (10msec) , Slow = ON (400msec).
Select mode of operation, Serial Number or Zone Assignment mode in Table 3. For FBII Control Panels, the program jumper must also be cut, see Figure 5.
VERIFICATION OF PROGRAMMING
Select the group setting using DIP Switches 2 through 5. See Table 1 for Zone Assignments or Table 2 for Serial Number assignments. If using more than one 4208EX, be certain to set each one to a different group setting.
Be sure to enable expansion zone tamper protection at the control (program field ✼24 = 0).
To verify proper programming, the following test should be performed:
For Double-balanced zones see Table 3.
Set DIP Switch 8 to OFF (tamper enabled).
Select the 4208EX Tamper Protection setting using DIP Switch position 8: Tamper Disabled = ON, Tamper Enabled = OFF.
Replace the 4208EX cover and clear the keypad of any faulted zones. Remove the 4208EX’s cover and verify (on the keypad) that only the zones you designated for this 4208EX are indicating a check (or trouble) condition.
ADEMCO PROGRAMMING When setting the 4208EX to a group of zone numbers, each zone must be programmed as follows: •
On ADEMCO 4140XMP and earlier controls, these zones must be programmed as Left Loop Polling Loop Zones.
On ADEMCO VISTA-40 and later controls, these zones must be programmed in the #93 Menu Mode Zone Programming as INPUT TYPE “7” -- DIP Switch type polling device (DP).
SPECIFICATIONS Physical: 6-7/16”W x 4-1/4” H x 1-1/4” D (163mm x 108mm x 32mm) Electrical: Polling loop input: 8 – 12 VDC (SLC) Polling Loop Current: 34mA Max. See Table 4. Polling Loop Max. Impedance: 25 Ohms External Power Input: Voltage: 12VDC Current: 34mA Max. See Table 4.
When setting the 4208EX to a group of serial numbers, each zone must be programmed as INPUT TYPE “6” --SL (Serial Number Polling Loop Device). Loops can be learned in any order and assigned to any legitimate zone number.
Sensor Loop Response: Normal: 400 mS (all protection loops) Fast: 10 mS (option on A and B only) Sensor Loop Current: Normal: 1.25mA Shorted: 1.6mA Sensor Loop Max. Resistance: 2K Ohms ( EOLR) +/– 300 Ohms tolerance.
When prompted to learn the serial number for a particular zone, you may either enter it manually through the keypad, through COMPASS Downloader, or “learn” it by momentarily faulting (shorting) the terminals of that zone as required by the control. If entering a serial number manually through the keypad, enter it and press “✼” to advance to the next prompt, which will ask you for the loop number. Enter a “1” for each serial number entered.
