Can't address pull stationsight 5808 on silent Knight panel.

Boy, am I frustrated!!..    Manual says just hook unit to 2 terminals
named SLC program,  follow menu instructions and the unit is
programmed.  I keep getting "connecting to device" but it never does!!

What am I doing wrong?

I have the correct +on SLC on panel and SLC on Unit.
I have the pull station address set for 1.

Any suggestions for what I can do?

PS  Silent Knight tech support closed for Easter today.   Thanks

What's the model number of the pull station?  Are there any other
devices with the same address setting?  Have you observed the correct
polarity and are you getting voltage at the pull station terminals?

Model number of pull station is SD 500 Ps
This is a new panel. I am tryiny to set 1 pullstation to address 1.
I have verified correct polarity
The panel has 3 sets of SLC terminals.
=2E..SLC in  (I am not using)
=2E..SLC out (I am not using at this time.  Manual sys to connect to SLC
Program to address)
=2E..SLC Program.  IO am using these terminals
   Side Note: I do not have voltage at SLC Program terminals but I do
have voltage on SLC Progam terminals

Connect the pull station to the SLC "out" terminals.  Observe proper
polarity.  You won't have a problem.

Sorry Frank, that doesn's work either.

All I need to do is set the address on 16 smoke detectors SD 505 APs
And 13 Pullstations SD 500 Ps.
Manual says connect to SLC Program terminals and follow menu to set
address.
Keeps saying " No device found "  when I try to read it or
"Connecting" when I try to write it.
I have wasted all day on this problem.  AAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!

Any way for you to send me the manual?

Re: Can't address pull stationsight 5808 on Silent Knight panel.
Genius.....
You Don't "address" SK pull Stations via the SLC program Port on the Panel!
They are either made as a Standard Pull with NO SD500 MIM (mini input
module) or With the MIM preinstalled on the back of the Pull. If it's
not there,
You need to provide MIM for each of your Pulls -----UNLESS they are
preinstalled with the Pull---- There is NO DATA being sent from an SK
pull--- they are merely Point Addressable Inititating Devices---
Programmed via the "DIPS" on the MIM!

Ok Genius responder,
I already figured the pulls out.  I used the dip switches to program
them.  I still need to know how to program the smokes.  They don't
have dip switches!!!

Any "Genius" tech who goes out into the field with a New Panel and
doesn't know how to program it .........???????
Who wants to hold his hand????

Maybe he didn't have a choice. (employer says: "Here, go install this

OK  Secure15,

1.  I am not in the field.  I am setting the panel up in the office
BEFORE I take it out for install.
2. I have never installed a Silent Knight Panel.
3.  The only reason I posted for help is because tech support is
closed today.
4. I don't care for your sacarasm (genius referance)

5. If you don't have something positive to contribute why don't you
just not respond?
Why go out of your way to insult someone who is simply asking if
anyone can help.

Since you didn't respond about the smoke detector, I assume you don't
know either.

Re: Can't address pull stationsight 5808 on Silent Knight panel.
Wire up a base to the SLC program terminals.  Insert a new smoke detector in
the base and use the front panel menu to "assign" it an address.  Repeat as
necessary using a different unused address for every new smoke.  The SLC
program terminals are only intended to assigning addresses to smokes/heats.
You connect the field wiring to the SLC out terminals.

Pulls, monitor modules, control modules, etc get their addresses via dip
switches.

We like to leave a base connected to the program terminals in case a tech
needs to add or replace a smoke.

PS  I hate SK addressable panels and consider them junk.

Any you know that get a non junk rating? The only fire panels I see
regularly are the Bosch 7024. Good for small jobs. They are just
addressable, not analog addressable.
