The ADEMCO 6160RF keypad/transceiver is a combination unit that combines the functions of the following
• 6160 Alphanumeric Addressable Keypad
• 5881H RF Receiver
• 5800TM Transmitter Module
The 6160RF Keypad/Transceiver may be used on any control panel that supports 5800 Series wireless devices
(e.g., VISTA-10P, VISTA-15P, VISTA-20P).
• Supports wireless key transmitters (e.g.; 5804) and bi-directional transmitters (e.g.; 5804BD, 5828/5828V).
• Supports wireless keys with high-security (encryption) capability (e.g.; 5804E).
• Provides a nominal range of 200 feet' for RF transmitters (some transmitters have a shorter range).
• Supports RF jam detection when the receiver is enabled.
• Capable of sending status signals (Armed, Ready, etc.) to bi-directional units such as 5804BD, 5804BDV and
The following 5800 series transmitters are not intended for use in UL installations: 5802, 5804, 5804BD, 5804BDV, 5804E,
5814, 5816TEMP, 5819, 5819BRS, 5819WHS, 5828/5828V and 5850.
INSTALLING THE 6160RF
Locate the 6160RF in an area and at a height where
it is convenient for user operation. The 6160RF must
be at least 10 ft from the control panel to ensure
proper operation of the RF receiver.
Mounting and Wiring
The 6160RF has terminal blocks for connection to
power and data wires. Removing the keypad’s case
back provides access to the terminal blocks.
The 6160RF can be surface mounted directly to
walls, or to a single- or double-gang electrical box.
Follow these steps to mount and wire the keypad:
1. Push the two case release snaps at the bottom of
the keypad with the blade of a medium
screwdriver (this will push in the release snap),
then pull that side of the case back away. Insert
the screwdriver in the side of the keypad
(between the front and back case) and gently
twist to release the side locking tab. Repeat for
the other side. Refer to Figure 1 for location of the
case back release snaps and locking tabs.
TO REMOVE REAR COVER
PUSH IN THE TWO MOUNTING
SNAPS LOCATED ALONG THE
BOTTOM OF THE KEYPAD
AND LIFT COVER UP.
Figure 1. Removing the Case Back
Pass the wiring from the control panel through
the opening in the case back. (see the control
panel’s instructions for proper run lengths.)
a. If surface wiring is being used, wiring may be
routed through the top or the bottom left-side
breakout in the case back. The breakouts must
be punched out using a screwdriver before
mounting the case back.
b. If desired, wires may be strain-relieved to the
wire tie point on the inside of the case back
with a tie wrap (not supplied).
3. Mount the case back to a wall or to an electrical
box using the 25mm-long self-tapping screws
supplied (mollies for drywall are not supplied).
Connect the power and data wires from the
control panel to the terminals on the 6160RF as
indicated in Figure 2 and Table 1.
