Removing the T1600 Alarm Relay Wires

To remove the wires connected to an alarm-reporting device:

  1. Disconnect the existing wire at the external device.
  2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. Using a 2.5-mm flat-blade screwdriver, loosen the small screws on the face of the terminal block and remove the block from the relay contact.
  4. Using the 2.5-mm flat-blade screwdriver, loosen the small screws on the side of the terminal block. Remove existing wires from the slots in the front of the block.

Installing the T1600 Alarm Relay Wires

To connect the router to external alarm-reporting devices, attach wires to the RED ALARM and YELLOW ALARM relay contacts on the CIP. A system condition that triggers the red or yellow alarm LED on the craft interface also activates the corresponding alarm relay contact.

The terminal blocks that plug into the alarm relay contacts are supplied with the router. They accept wire of any gauge between 28 AWG and 14 AWG (0.08 and 2.08 mm2), which is not provided. Use the gauge of wire appropriate for the external device you are connecting.

To connect the wires to an alarm-reporting device::

  1. Prepare the required length of replacement wire with gauge between 28 AWG and 14 AWG (0.08 and 2.08 mm2).
  2. Attach an electrostatic discharge (ESD) grounding strap to your bare wrist, and connect the strap to one of the ESD points on the chassis.
  3. Insert the replacement wires into the slots in the front of the block. Using a 2.5-mm flat-blade screwdriver, tighten the screws to secure the wire.
  4. Plug the terminal block into the relay contact and use a 2.5-mm flat-blade screwdriver to tighten the screws on the face of the block.
  5. Attach the other end of the wires to the external device.
