What are alpha numeric keypads?

Last Updated: 11/15/2013

Alpha numeric keypads, like the Honeywell 6160 or 6160RF, have easy-to-navigate, 32-character displays designed to perform full system programming. These keypads can easily access all programming menus, even *56 zone programming. Honeywell recommends these keypads for their control panels because they give the user full system control, plus custom zone descriptions appear on the keypad display.

Fixed English Keypads, like the 6150, are more limited when it comes to system programming. These keypads make it more difficult to navigate programming sub-menus because they don't display custom zone descriptions, and they contain less pre-programmed words. Accidental programming changes occur more frequently with fixed English keypads.
