I recently purchased an IQ 2+ Panel along with a Hardwire 16F to take over an existing system that included a hardwired siren. The translator is learned into the panel, with a type of “hardwire translator”. All of the sensors seem to be working properly. My issue is that I cannot get the external siren to sound when I do a siren test under panel tests.
The siren is a Honeywell 747PD which from what I had read is 12VDC 120mA, so should be good I believe. Under the 500mA rating at least for the 16F, with no other motion detectors or anything else on AUX yet. I have a jumper from AUX OUT to SIREN IN. The + for the siren is connected to SIREN OUT, and the - is going to AUX GND. (picture attached).
I connected the siren with the Hardwire 16F powered off, and I have rebooted both the translator and the panel since. The translator was already learned into the panel though before I added the siren, so I’m wondering if that could be an issue.
Any thoughts, or insight would be appreciated. I’m not sure what I am missing, and the documentation is a bit lacking when it comes to troubleshooting.
