Gamewell Identiflex 650 Programming Issues

Good morning all...! Any help that can be provided is greatly appreciated!

I have a client I am working with that has a Gamewell Identiflex 650 Fire Alarm Control Panel. He is attempting to make a small, six (6) device, addition to the programming. This dealer is a Honeywell, Gamewell, FCI distributor. The problem is the OEM does not support this product any longer.

When the technician attempts to connect to the panel with his laptop, a connection is made but he is unable to download the Control by Event information. It keeps timing out and the connection is lost.

Thank you!!

Dear Mr. Orange, 

First, laptop programming can be tricky! This Gamewell Identiflex 650 will only link up properly with an older laptop that has a serial port (Not USB Emulator on Windows 10). Second, the port baud rate, stop bit & parity must be set correctly. Lastly, if there is anything plugged into the EIA-232 ports it must be unplugged before plugging in the laptop.
