dipswitches on SW2 to OFF.

Notes
● When 15 or fewer GB-50A units are used in the designated network for air-conditioning, it is recommended that
the IP address be set using SW2 on the unit.
● If the set IP address of GB-50A is forgotten, check the IP address that is registered on the monitoring PC (WEB
or TG-2000A). GB-50A can be started by changing the setting of SW2 on GB-50A and using an arbitrary fixed
IP address as a temporary IP address. It is recommended to paste a sticker with the IP address on the unit, so
that the IP address of GB-50A is available at all times. Once GB-50A is started up with a temporary IP address,
a new IP address can be assigned to it on the Initial Setting Web.
2) Setting of the service switch
The switches must be OFF for normal use. The switch setting change works when the power is turned on
next time.

(A) Level signal
① When the level signal is selected, the operation (only ON/OFF operation) for the central controller and
the local remote controller are prohibited (except during normal operation).
② When the emergency stop/normal operation signal is selected, the status will be changed from normal
operation to emergency stop when the external input signal contact turns OFF to ON, and will be
changed from emergency stop to normal operation when external input signal contact turns ON to OFF.
Emergency stop signal will bring the air conditioners to stop, and canceling the emergency stop will not
automatically restart these units. To go back to the previous operation status, they must be manually
turned back on.
③ When ON/OFF input signal is selected, the status will be changed from OFF to ON when the external
input signal contact turns OFF to ON.
(B) Pulse signal
①Even if the ON signal is input during ON, the status will remain at the ON status.
②When the local remote controller is prohibited, the ON/OFF operation, operation mode selection and
temperature setting from the local remote controller is prohibited.
③Set the pulse width (contact ON time) to 0.5 to 1.0 second.
