DSC PowerSeries PC1616 Product Description:


The DSC PowerSeries PC1616 v4.6 is a feature-rich, up to 32 total zones, hardwired control panel that easily integrates with an array of compatible components to deliver a scalable business or home security solution. The PC1616 control panel comes out of the box with 6 hardwired on-board zones and it may be expanded to a total of 14 hardwired zones by using a PC5108 hardwired 8-zones expansion module. In addition, the PC1616 can accomodate up to 32 total wireless zones by adding an DSC wireless receiver (such as; RF5132-433 wireless receiver or RFK5501 combo keypad w/32-zone wireless receiver). With an DSC wireless receiver installed the PC1616 is compatible with the full line of DSC wireless security products.

The new PowerSeries PC1616 control panel from DSC makes installation easy, simple and fast with label programming using the pre-loaded library. The PC1616 panel features template programming for new users and a programming interface that experts will be familiar with. With a library of over 250 commonly used names in English, French and Spanish, label programming is now a snap with the PowerSeries PC1616 v4.6 panel. DIYer's can now assign a unique 3-digit code to display a full descriptive label (e.g., code 190 displays "Window"), avoiding time and mistakes with more conventional keypad entry. For additional customization, other pertinent details can also be added, such as the zone or floor to make it easy for the owner to identify faults (e.g., "Bedroom Window"). The PowerSeries PC1616 also features an independent end-of-line (EOL) configuration that makes installation faster than ever before. Each hardwired zone can be independently matched to the devices EOL configuration, reducing the time required to get a common EOL configuration across all security devices. Likewise, wireless device enrollment can be enrolled quick and easily. With the wireless device enrollment process, DIYer's are not required to manually program serial numbers or wireless attributes. Instead, enrollment is completed by confirming the confirm Electronic Serial Numbers (ESN), zone numbers and zone type through a series of user friendly screens.

The PowerSeries PC1616 also gives the user more control, thereby enhancing the functional experience. The user can "Arm Away", "Arm Stay" or "Disarm" all partitions with just one operation. The PC1616 features up to 47 user codes, up to 8 keypads, and 2 partitions. With global arming and disarming, and scheduling auto arming and disarming, the DSC PC1616 panel is a preferred choice of installer's and DIYer's. The PC1616 panel is equipped to send alarm signals over the TELCO traditional telephone line. However, you may choose to add an alternative internet (DSC TL260R, Alula BAT-WIFI) or dual-path ethernet/cellular (ADC-SEM210-PS-AT, ADC-SEM210-PS-VZ, BAT-LTE) alarm communicator to your PC1616 panel to eliminate your need of a phone line and achieve Alula, Connect24 or Alarm.com interactive alarm monitoring services.
