Connection

Connecting an External Trigger

The BE1520 Visit Bridge has the following methods of activation: 

  • various accessories can be connected via the Exterior External Trigger socket (3), see below.
  • with pushbutton.

For more information about the indications provided by the receivers in the Visit System, refer to Appendix/Further information/Settings below.

An Exterior External Trigger on the Repeater can be connected to the vibrator output on several of Bellman & Symfon AB’s products or to other equipment that produces a voltage or contact for activation. In addition, the following accessories can be used:

  • magnetic switch BE9023 (accessory)
  • door entering contact mat BE9024 (accessory)
  • a standard pushbutton

Settings

No adjustments are required for normal use. The relevant descriptions are provided below, if you wish to change a setting for some reason.

Radio key

In order to use several Visit and/or Bellman Visit 868 Systems close to one another without interference, different Radio Keys can be set on the different systems. All Visit System units are supplied from the factory tuned to the same Radio Key, channel 0. This means that all Radio Key Switches (5) on the transmitters are set to the OFF position. The Radio Key setting (referred to as a radio channel in the old Bellman Visit System) is identical for both systems.

  • To alter the Radio Key, move the Radio Key Switches (5) to the desired positions.

Please note:red triangle

All Bellman Visit products within the same system must be tuned to the same Radio Key in order to operate as a group.

Signal pattern

A Signal Pattern is the name for the way in which a receiver in the Bellman Visit System indicates activation. Changing the transmitters’ Signal Switch changes the Signal Pattern which the receivers display when the transmitter is activated. Follow the instructions under Appendix/Further information/Settings/Setting the activation pattern to make your choice.

Setting the Activation Pattern

The Visit Bridge can be activated in two different ways.
On delivery the Visit Bridge transmits the same signal regardless of the input causing the activation.
By changing the Signal Switches (4), different inputs on the same Bridge can transmit different Signal Patterns.

In this way the same Bridge can be used to forward signals from the Bellman Visit System to the Visit 868 System and vice versa at the same time as it can transmit a Door Signal when activated via the Exterior External Trigger (3) and a Baby Cry signal when activated via the Test Button (2).

The figure below shows the standard settings that are available.

Transferring signal patterns between systems

Since the Visit 868 System has more indication methods than the older Bellman Visit System, the systems will not give the same indications, for obvious reasons. The similarities will, as far as possible, mean that the same LED colour will be used.

The red LED is reserved for a fire alarm in the Visit 868 System, so that if the red LED is used by the Bellman Visit System, the indication given by the Visit 868 System will use a different colour. See the tables below.

The tables below show how the different Signal Patterns are transferred between the different systems.
From 433To 868
Green Green 1
Yellow Yellow 1
Orange Orange 1
Red Green 4

Testing

It is easy to test the Bridge. If the unit does not work as described below, you can check further under Appendix/Furtherinformation/Troubleshooting/Troubleshooting guide.

How to test

A Visit 868 transmitter and receiver and a Bellman Visit transmitter and receiver are required to test the radio reception on the BE1520 Bellman Visit Bridge. All units must be tuned to the same Radio Key as the Visit 868 Bridge. 

Testing the receiver in the Visit 868 Bridge:

  1. Make sure that the Visit 868 Bridge is connected correctly.
  2. Press the Visit 868 transmitter’s test button
  3. The Visit 868 Bridge will indicate by blinking with the LED (1).
  4. Press the Bellman Visit transmitter’s test button.
  5. The Visit 868 Bridge will indicate by blinking with the LED (1).


To test the Transmitter:

  1. Make sure that the Visit 868 Bridge is connected correctly.
  2. Activate via the Test Button (2) or via the Exterior External Trigger (3).
  3. The Visit 868 Bridge will now light up the LED (1) to show that it has been activated and that it is transmitting a signal to the receivers in the Visit 868 and Bellman Visit Systems.
  4. The receivers in both system will indicate an alarm according to the way that the Visit 868 Bridge has been set up using the Signal Switches (4). 

Troubleshooting

You can carry out a number of checks yourself before sending a product for repair. 

Troubleshooting guide
ProblemSolution
Nothing happens when the transmitter is activated with the test button(2).
  • Check that the power supply unit is connected correctly.
  • If the power supply unit is not connected, change the back-up battery. Only use an alkaline 6LR61 or a lithium 6F22 type battery. 
  • Make sure that the power supply unit is connected correctly.
  • Check that all the connections are correct.
The LED (1) blinks yellow when the Bridge is activated.
  • Change the back-up battery. Only use an alkaline 6LR61 or a lithium 6F22 type battery. 
  • Make sure that the power supply unit is connected correctly.
The LED (1) blinks green when the Bridge is activated, but the receivers are not responding.
  • Check the batteries in the receivers.
  • Check that the receivers are not placed too far away by moving them closer to the Bridge.
  • Check that all units in the Visit 868 and Bellman Visit Systems are set to the same Radio Key. For further information see Appendix/Further information/Settings/Radio Key.
One of the systems is working but the other one is not working.
  • Check that all units in the Visit 868 and Bellman Visit Systems are set to the same radio key. For further information see Appendix/Further information/Settings/Radio key.
The receiver emits a strange alarm when activated by the Bridge.
  • Set the Signal Switch to 0000.
The receiver signals when no transmitter is activated.
  • Change the Radio Key on all units in the relevant Visit 868 System. There is probably another system nearby with the same Radio Key.
