    This is interesting. I worked with a few Scantronic panels back in the 80's, but I don't think I've seen any around here since then. I was surprised when I Googled "Scantronic AV9000, that I found a manual copyrighted "10/1/97". Are you sure your system was installed in the 80's and not in the late 90's?

    I wish you luck finding a keypad for a control panel that old.
    If you can't, I recommend a Honeywell/Ademco Vista-20, Vista-20SE, or Vista-20P and keypad(s) to replace your panel & keypad(s). The reason I favor the Honeywell (formerly Ademco) brand is that they have the industry's best record for making their equipment back-compatible with former models. For instance, if you had bought a Vista-20 back in '97, today's keypads would be compatible with it. No other brand that I'm aware of (and I've worked with all the major ones) can make that claim.
