The time- and date-sensitive components (hardware and software) of DSC products are designed to correctly make the transition from Friday December 31st, 1999 to Saturday January 1st, 2000.

NOTES:

  1. COSMETIC - Panel does not recognize 2000 as a leap year. The panel will change from Feb. 28th, 2000 to March 1st, 2000. None of the products listed will suffer critical failure because of this. The only items that will be affected are the date display, event buffer log, and on-site printout, where applicable.

    Correction:

    To correct the problem in the field, reprogram the date on Wednesday, March 1st, 2000.

    1a. The product will not recognize the end of the year, beginning with the start of the year 2001 (and subsequent). The panel will continue to increment the day of the month as December. For example, December 31st, 2000 will roll over to December 32, 2000, then December 33, 2000, etc. The product will not suffer critical failure because of this. The only items that will be affected are the date display, event buffer log, and on-site printout (where applicable). Programmed test transmissions and auto-arming will continue as programmed, since these are not tied to date.

    Correction:

    To correct the problem in the field, reprogram the date on January 1st each year, starting with the year 2001.

  2. COSMETIC - Date rolls over to ‘100’, not ‘00’; this is ONLY evident through DLS software.
  3. COSMETIC - Day of the week, during 2001, is incorrectly displayed (Scheduling). The product will properly roll over from Friday, December 31st, 1999 to Saturday, January 1st, 2000; however the product will begin to incorrectly determine the day of the week when the date rolls over from the year 2000 to the year 2001. The date will change from Sunday, December 31st, 2000 to Saturday, January 1st, 2001. This will only have an adverse effect on products that are scheduled to perform certain functions on certain days of the week.

    Correction:

    To correct the problem in the field, manually program the date via a system keypad or via the downloading computer software at some time during the year 2000. Manually programming during the year 2000 clears a software flag that is the cause of the problem. Once the flag is cleared, the rollover to the year 2001 will happen correctly.

  4. COSMETIC - The wrong year is recorded in Event Buffer when viewed from LCD Keypad. The product will display a random 2-digit year for previous events when the event buffer is viewed via a system LCD keypad after the rollover to the year 2000, and at the beginning of every subsequent year. The printout of the event buffer, or viewing the event buffer via the downloading computer software, will not be affected. None of the products listed will suffer critical failure because of this.

    Correction:

    To correct the problem, simply wait until 128 new events have been logged to the event buffer. New events created in the new year will display correctly. Once 128 new events have been created, the previous year’s events will be overwritten.
