    Hi guys, I have an older system that the alarm company that installed it says that they can't program it any more. The system is a ITI SX-V. The system still works fine but it's showing 91 on the CPU witch means the CPU battery is bad. So my question is will the system loose all its memory if I try to put a new battery in? What type battery? Do I really need a programmer to change programming or can I do it from the touch keypad?

    Thanks

    1) possibly
    2) look first
    3) possibly

    We have occasionally had alarm system experts here, so someone may have a better answer. But you're wise to ask, because bad things are certainly a possibility.

    Generally speaking, I would consider changing the CPU battery while the power is on to minimise the risk of loss of data. I would be fairly confident that it's stored in non-volatile memory and that all you will lose is the date and time, but that is by no means certain.

    Hello my name is jeff Pauldo

    The Sx-V is no longer Manufactured. It is getting harder and harder to get parts for something that is no longer manufactured. Most alarm Companies will try and upgrade your system to a more up to date system which is quiet costly. The SX-V will loose its memory if you change the battery when the power to the panel is completely gone. If that infacts happened you will then need a programer to program all your door sensors and motions back into the system. I would write down the make of the battery and go to radio shack or a battery company over the internet. Once you have the battery, change the battery with the power on. You should be good.

    Thanks Jeff, that's exactly what I will do. I was told that the system was programmed at a central station where they monitored it and I wouldn't even be able to program it if I had a hand held programmer. Is this true?

    Thanks Again
    Happy Holidays!

    V(rms) = V(ac) and V(ave) = V(dc), why?
