Intruder Detection Circuits [A11,A16]
There are three intruder circuits: Zone-1, Zone-2 and Exit/Entry. Each detection circuit may comprise any
combination of:

i) door or window magnetic contacts.
ii) electronic detectors - PIR, ultrasonic or doppler-microwave.
iii) window foil.
iv) vibration or glass-break detectors.
v) pressure


Zone-1 is the main intruder detection circuit, and is armed when the keyswitch is turned to FULL or PART.
Zone-2 is the secondary intruder detection circuit, and is armed only when the keyswitch is turned to FULL. Zone-
2 is normally used to protect the night-time living area in a house, such that the occupants can freely move around
without causing an alarm, whilst the rest of the house is protected in Zone-1.
Exit/Entry is the area covering the direct path between the Noby-65 and the final exit door. This circuit allows the
keyholder to safely leave the property within a preset Exit-Time. On re-entering the premises the Entry-Tone will
start, and the keyholder must proceed directly to the Noby-65 panel and turn the keyswitch to OFF. Straying off
the Exit/Entry route into an area protected by Zone-1 or Zone-2 will trigger an immediate alarm condition.

Electronic detection devices (e.g. PIRs) are powered from the Auxillary 12v supply terminals (A01 & A02), fused at
500mA (F2). Warning: do not to overload this 12v supply. As a rough guide each PIR draws 25mA. The latching
LED function of PIRs can be controlled by connecting the appropriate PIR terminal (often called SW+, Set, C or
Control) to the SW+ signal appearing at terminal B13. This signal is normally 0v and switches to 12v when the
Noby-65 is fully armed i.e. after the Exit-Time period. This SW+ signal can also be used to signal a System-Set
(Open/Closed) signal for Remote Signalling Equipment.

Pressure Mats must be connected between the two cores of the detection circuit, such that the EOL resistor
becomes short-circuit in alarm.

The cable for each circuit may require up to 7 cores: 2 cores for the alarm detection circuit, 2 cores for the detector
supply, 1 core for the SW+ signal, and 2 cores for the Sabotage circuit (Anti-Tamper). Any spare cores should be
used to ‘stiffen’ the detector 0v power connection.

Duress / Panic (Personal Attack) [A09,A10]
Activating the Duress / Panic Circuit will trigger a silent Duress response at signal output B12. A silent Duress
alarm is sometimes the preferred option for systems employing Remote Signalling Equipment. For personal safety
reasons Duress is the default mode of operation, as supplied from the factory. Alternatively, the Noby-65 can be
configured to give a full local audibles Panic alarm:

To configure the Panic Option:
i) remove all power from the Noby-65 – both battery and 230VAC power supply.
ii) press the Panic Button such that the Panic Circuit is open-circuit.
iii) reconnect the power supply to the Noby-65.
iv) reset the Panic Button.
v) reset the Noby-65 by performing a System Reset.

Important: the Panic option will revert back to Duress in the event of total power loss to the Noby-65.

Sabotage Circuit (Anti-Tamper) [A07,A08]
The Sabotage circuit protects the Noby-65 from criminal interference or accidental damage. This is a single circuit
and should be routed around all the intruder detection circuits, and through all lid switches. The Noby-65 is
supplied with an internal lid microswitch pre-wired and fitted with a series 10Kohm EOL resistor at terminal A08.
To insert new sabotage loops: First unscrew the wire at terminal A07, and then connect any newly created loops
between A07 and the free end of the microswitch wire. For typical installations it is recommended to leave the EOL
resistor in its original position at terminal A08.

Fire Detection Circuit [A03,A04]
The Noby-65 incorporates a low power 12v/24v invertor which permits the use of industry standard 24v
conventional smoke detectors. Any combination of conventional optical or ionisation smoke detectors, or rate-of-
rise heat detectors can be connected. The total steady-state current taken from the Fire Detector terminals A03 &
A04 must not exceed 1mA. Typically this equates to a maximum of 10 detectors, assuming a rated current of
100uA per detector. The Fire Detector Circuit is monitored for open-circuit faults.

Water Alarm Detection Circuit [A05,A06]
This circuit is intended to accomodate water level float switches for use in flood detection. Once triggered the
Water Alarm Output can be used to shut off a water solenoid operated valve as shown in Figure 3.
Although this circuit is labelled ‘Water’, it can be used for other purposes e.g. a 24hr freezer alarm to give a
warning of rising freezer temperature.
