HOCHIKI ADDRESSABLE CALL POINT
Products covered: HCP-W, HCP-W(DPS), HCP-W(SCI) & HCP-WM
IMPORTANT: These call points are suitable for use only with the particular class of system for which they are
intended. These units are only compatible with the Enhanced Systems Protocol (ESP). All units are weatherproof
and can be installed externally. Important Note – The use of lubricants, cleaning solvents or petroleum
based products should be avoided.
SETTING THE ESP LOOP ADDRESS
Ensure that each device has a unique address set before operation. Note the address can be set before or after
connection to the loop but the loop MUST NOT be powered. The address is set by connecting a hand held
programmer (TCH-B100) to the programming connector inside the unit. To access this, first remove the four cover
screws located at the top and bottom of the unit (see fig 1). Place the blade of a screwdriver into each of the
grooves between the black back section and red front section and twist to separate the two halves (see figs 2 and
The programming connector is located on the reverse of the front section of the call point (top left corner). Using a
PL-3 programming lead, plug the square connector of the PL-3 on to the programming connector on the call point,
note the connector is NOT polarised (see fig 5). Plug the jack plug end of the PL-3 into the TCH-B100. Set the
address in the usual way (see the TCH-B100 Instructions for further details). Once the address is stored remove
the programming lead.
The call point incorporates an LED mounted on the front cover which is continuously lit red when the device is
operated. The HCP-W(SCI) incorporates a bi-coloured LED; the LED will show amber when a short-circuit is
present but will switch to red when the unit is operated.
The polling mode of the call point (whether the call point will flash intermittently when connected to the loop) is
controlled via the connected control panel (check control panel compatibility). Note that factory default for all
models is flashing mode.
MOUNTING / CONNECTION
The weatherproof back box section of the unit (black) should be mounted directly
on the wall or final fixing position with three screws (supplied). The provided
screw holes MUST be used; making any other holes in the back box will void the
IP rating. To avoid damage to the back box do not over tighten screws. Use
appropriate weatherproof cable glands (not supplied) within the glanded cable
entry holes. Note, two blanking plugs are supplied (see fig 4). A metal cable
earthing shield is also provided, this should be fitted around the cable entry hole
before the cable gland is fitted and a suitable earth attached if required.
Wire the unit to the loop cables using the terminal blocks, note these blocks can
be removed for easier connection (see fig 5).
