AMX-400
Addressable Loop Regenerator
Installation Instructions
The AMX-400 Addressable Loop Regenerator can be connected to a PC4020 or PC5100 mod-
ule to extend the allowable wiring distance on the addressable loop. The unit isolates addres-
sable devices, limiting the effect of short circuits. The AMX-400 can be powered from the
auxiliary power of the control panel or from an independent power supply. A maximum of
four AMX-400 modules can be wired in series.
SPECIFICATIONS
• Operating Current...40mA (plus current draw of addressable devices)
• Supply Voltage...12V
DC
(min)
COMPATIBLE CONTROL PANELS
• PC4020 v3.0 and higher
• PC5010 v2.0 and higher (requires PC5100)
• PC5020 v3.1 and higher (requires PC5100)
INSTALLATION
Refer to Figure 1 for wiring details and Table 2 for the wire run chart.
1. Select a location for the AMX-400 module. Remove power from system.
2. Locate 3 mounting holes in cabinet that align with module mounting holes. Insert stand-
offs in cabinet mounting holes and snap standoffs into place. Align module mounting
holes with standoffs and snap module into place.
3. Connect the +12V
DC
from the power supply to the RED(+) terminal on the AMX-400.
Connect the ground wire from the power supply to the BLK(-) terminal on the AMX-400.
4. Connect the incoming addressable loop to the + IN and - IN terminals of the AMX-400,
observing the correct polarity.
5. Connect the outgoing addressable loop to the +OUT and - OUT terminals of the
AMX-400, observing the correct polarity.
6. Power up system and perform system test.
