I've had a System Test series for a while but the videos used to be junk. Now that over the past year I have gained the ability to create decent videos, I'll post them here! :D
My current System Test series is from System Test 8 and onward, the older ones focused solely on my AutoPulse system when I was younger and hadn't built the current one yet, although both Systems are tied together as of now.

Here is my most current System Test video, released today. Enjoy!


kcin556 on YouTube wrote:First System Test with my new DMP XR-500 Fire/security panel! The panel only monitors the equipment, including the SXL-EX, AutoPulse 2000, DualTec motion sensor, and the POPIT modules, on the board and cannot activate anything other than its keypad. The keypad lights up in red during an alarm condition, which is present throughout the video due to the no battery condition on both of the fire panels. Although it is branded DMP, the 923-MCW-R is being activated from the normal SXL-EX fire panel and not the DMP XR-500.

You would need to enable embedding on your video(s) in order for it to play here if that's what you intend to do.

Oops! I have embedding disabled by default and didn't notice any problems since I was logged into my account and it allowed it to play for me. Thanks!

Here's System Test 13, featuring a new Square D QO breaker box for the AC power wiring!



From the Description:

All the panels are now tied onto one power feed. Signals are a System Sensor MA12/24L set on 800Hz continuous, and a Notifier NWS-24 strobe. Special thanks to "Retired STR-SG" on TFP for helping me troubleshoot a small problem with this strobe and get it connected!

Initiating devices are a Honeywell S464A, an Edwards 270-SPO (which is unfortunately too close to the DMP XR-500 to unlock with a regular screwdriver) and the usual unappreciated Chemetronics 604 heat detector.

Not really sure whats going on with the audio in the beginning but oh well.

System Test 15 is here, featuring a new keypad and some vintage, and very difficult to activate :wink: , pull stations!



I've got something new that wasn't installed when I made this test, so hopefully I'll be able to share it with those interested sometime soon.

Today I filmed System Test 24... and experienced somewhat of an equipment failure on camera when I tired to activate the waterflow switch near the end of the video. Here it is below:

As a side note, those two POPIT modules at the bottom of the enclosure were not installed like that. The paint on that panel is so slippery that double-stick tape just slides down over time. About a year ago they were mounted straight and 2 inches higher!

Thanks for taking a look!

Wonderful system set-up that you had there! I'm wondering if you thought about expanding the system or putting devices in hallways?
