Tabs at the top of the panel secure and release the front cover
and the chassis. The plastic hinges
on the panel bottom allow the
cover and chassis to swing down and out of the way.
To mount the panel on a wall:
1. Choose a panel location.
2. Run all necessary power, phone,
siren, and hardwired
contact wires to the
desired panel location.
When choosing the AC outlet location for the AC power
transformer, make sure the ou
tlet is not controlled by a
switch or that it is not part of a ground fault circuit interrupt

3. Hold the panel against the wa
ll and mark the mounting hole
locations with a pencil.
4. Mount the back piece to the wall through the two horizontally
centered mounting holes near the top and bottom using the
supplied mounting hardware. Use wall anchors if no studs are
Connecting hardwired devices
The panel has five screw terminal
s, two battery terminals, and
two telephone connections. The scre
w terminals connect the AC
power, sirens, and or
hardwired detectors.

Interior sirens
From the factory, the HW1 I/O input (terminal 1) is set up for
interior siren operation (status and alarm sounds). The HW1&2 DC
out (terminal 2) provides
the positive (+) voltage.

The total current available from the HW1&2 DC out terminal
is 250 mA at up to 120ºF (49ºC). A 24-hour battery standby for UL
requirements will be met with a maximum load of 250 mA.

With Hardwired Siren Su
pervision turned on, sirens connected to
HW1 I/O are supervised and require a 4.7-kohm resistor in the
circuit. If this terminal is not used, turn Hardwired Siren
Supervision off.

Wiring phone lines

You can connect a phone line to the panel for systems monitored
by a central monitoring station or systems that notify users by a
voice event notification.
DSL (digital subscriber line) allows the use of multiple devices on a
single phone line simultaneously
. For DSL environments, connect
the panel line-in jack to an available phone jack on the premises.
You might also need an inline filter to ensure panel reporting is

Avoid connecting the panel to
a standard phone (voice) line
in this manner. Other devices in use at the same time the panel is
using the line can prevent re
ports from going through.
Full line seizure
Full line seizure allows the panel to take over (seize) the phone line,
even if another device on the line is in use. This method requires
that the panel be wired before
all other phones, answering
machines, computers, or other de
vices on the phone line. You may
need to verify the line seizure for UL installations.
Use the RJ31X (CA-38A) jack when wiring for full line seizure. You
can then quickly and easily disc
onnect the panel from the phone
line in case the panel disables th
e phone line due to
a malfunction.
To wire full line seizure with an RJ31X:
1. Run a four-conductor cable fr
om the premises Telco block to
the RJ31X.




cable wire to the RJ31X.
3. Disconnect th
green and re
d premises phone jack wires
from the Telco block and splice them to the four-conductor
cable black and white (or yello
w) wires. Use weatherproof
wire connectors for these splices.
4. Connect the four-conductor ca
ble green and red wires to the
Telco block TIP (+) and
red to RING (-) posts.
5. Connect the phone cord included with the panel to the RJ31X
and the panel LINE jack.
Full line seizure wiring with one premises phone

If a single phone is all that exists on the premises, full line seizure
can be accomplished without an RJ31X.
1. Disconnect the phone from th
e premises phone jack and plug
it into the panel PHONE jack. This jack is disconnected
automatically whenever the panel reports.
2. Connect the included phone co
rd to the panel LINE jack and
the premises phone jack.
If a customer adds phones or other phone devices to another
phone jack, full line seizure no longer exists. Inform them to
you if th
ey want
to add a phone or other device so that
you can rewire for full line seizure by adding an RJ31X.

398 • REV B • ISS 09JAN13 Wiring the power transformer

Connect the power transformer to the two 9 VAC in terminals (4
and 5) on the panel. Do not plug in the transformer at this time.
When applying power to the panel, connect the battery first, and
then plug in the AC power transf
ormer. This sequence prevents a
battery fault condition.
To install the backup battery (6 VDC, 1.2 Ah):
1. Connect the lug end of the red battery lead to the red battery

2. Connect the lug end of the black battery lead to the black
battery tab.
3. Align the red (+) battery terminal with the right end of the
terminal strip. The logo and specification information should
be readable.
4. Insert the front end of the battery under the forward battery
compartment latch.
5. Push forward and rotate the battery downward until it seats
beneath the rear battery compartment latch.

Do not connect the battery un
til you are ready to power
up the panel.
Applying AC power
Make sure the outlet is not controlled by a switch or that it is
not part of a ground fault circuit interrupt (GFCI).
1. Remove the center screw from the outlet cover plate and
hold the cover plate in place.
Use extreme caution when securing the
transformer to a metal outlet cover. You could receive a
serious shock if a metal outlet cover drops down onto the
prongs of the plug.
2. Plug the transformer into the lower receptacle of the outlet
so that the hole in the transforme
r tab lines up with the
outlet cover screw hole.
3. Insert the cover plate screw through the transformer tab
and the outlet cover plate. Tighten the screw.
