Before using the controller, please read this Instruction Book carefully to ensure correct operation.
Retain this manual for future reference.
This manual describes how to operate the centralized controller. Before using the controller, read the
1 Safety Precautions section carefully to ensure proper installation.
1
Safety Precautions
Safety precautions are provided for your protection and to prevent damage to the controller.
The safety precautions apply to all operators and service personnel.
Safety symbols used in this manual
The following symbols are used in this manual to indicate the type and severity of potential consequences that
may result when given instructions are not followed exactly as stated.
WARNING
Indicates a risk of death or serious injury.
CAUTION
Indicates a risk of injury or damage to the controller.
Retain the Installation Manual and the Instruction Book for future reference. Make sure both the Installation
Manual and the Instruction Book are given to any future air condition system users.
WARNING
The controller must be professionally
installed.
Ask your dealer or an authorized technician
to move the controller.
Improper installation may result in electric shock
or fire or damage to the controller.
Improper installation by an unqualified person may
result in electric shock or fire.
Make sure the controller is securely
mounted so that it will not fall.
Controllers must be disposed of properly.
Contact your dealer for proper disposal
procedures.
To avoid causing damage or fire, do not apply
an AC voltage or a voltage higher than 30VDC
to the M-NET terminal blocks on the
controller.
Do not attempt to modify or repair the
controller.
Modification or improper repair may result in
electric shock or fire.
Consult your dealer when repairs are
necessary.
Never remove the cover during operation.
Touching the charged parts of the controller
may cause severe burns or other personal
injury.
Stop the operation immediately and notify
your dealer if an error code is displayed and
the controller does not operate, or when any
abnormality is noticed.
Continuing the operation may result in damage
to the controller or fire.
If any abnormality is noticed (e.g., burning
smell), stop the operation, turn off the power
supply, and contact your dealer or technical
representative immediately.
Continuing the operation may result in damage to
the controller, electric shock, or fire.
1
CAUTION
Do not use the controller in an environment
high in oil, steam, or sulfuric gas.
These substances may have adverse effects on
the performance of the controller or damage its
parts.
Do not install the controller where there is a
risk of leaking flammable gas.
If the leaked gas accumulates around the
controller, it may ignite and cause an explosion.
Do not wash the unit with water.
Doing so may cause an electric shock or
malfunction.
When installing the controller in a hospital or
communication facility, take appropriate
measures to reduce electrical noise
interference.
Inverter equipment, generators, high-frequency
medical equipment, or radio communication
equipment may interfere with the normal
operation of the controller; or the electrical noise
from the controller may interfere with the medical
practice or cause image distortion and static.
Operate the controller within the temperature
range specification.
The use of controller outside of its specification
may result in serious damage to the controller. Be
sure to check the temperature range specification
in the Instruction Book.
Do not spray insect sprays or sprays with
flammable propellants to the controller.
To avoid the risk of fire or explosion, do not place
flammable sprays near the controller or spray
them directly on the controller.
To reduce the risk of electric shock, install and
wire the unit with the power to the
PAC-SC50/51KUA power supply unit turned
off.
Do not install this controller where an acid or
alkaline solution or special chemical spray is
used frequently to avoid electric shock or
malfunction.
Do not install this controller in a place that
has the potential for steam or dew formation.
Steam or dew formation may cause an electric
shock or a unit malfunction.
Do not touch the PCB (Printed Circuit Board)
with your hand or a tool.
Keep the PCB dust-free to prevent fire or
malfunction.
Do not use the controller for specialized
applications.
This product is designed exclusively for use with
the MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC building air
conditioning control system. The use of this
product with other air-conditioning management
systems or for other purposes may result in
malfunctions.
Use a security device such as a VPN router
when connecting the GB-24A to the Internet
to prevent unauthorized access.
If no security devices are installed, the operation
settings may be changed by an unauthorized
person without the knowledge of the user.
IMPORTANT
Enable the “Automatic restoration after power failure” function on the air conditioning units.
Otherwise, the hold function will prohibit the schedule from being executed, and the units will remain
stopped even after power is restored. Enable this function for the units to automatically resume their
operation after power is restored.

Notes
● When 15 or fewer GB-24A units are used in the air-conditioning network for, set the IP address via SW2 on the
unit.
● If the set IP address of GB-24A is forgotten, check the IP address that is registered on the monitoring PC (WEB).
GB-24A can be started by changing the setting of SW2 on GB-24A 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-24A is available at all times. Once GB-24A is started up with a temporary IP address,
a new IP address can be assigned to it on the Initial Setting Web.
2) Setting the service switch
The switches must be OFF for normal use. The switch setting change operates when the power is turned
on next time.

(A) For level signal
1. When the emergency stop/normal signal is selected, the status will change from normal to
emergency stop when the external input signal contact changes from OFF to ON, and will change
from emergency stop to normal when the contact changes from ON to OFF. Emergency stop signal
will bring the air conditioners to stop, and canceling the emergency stop will not automatically reset
these units. To return to the previous operation status, they must be manually turned back on.
2. When the ON/OFF signal is selected, the status will change from OFF to ON when the external
input signal contact changes from OFF to ON, and will change from ON to OFF when the contact
changes from ON to OFF.
(B) For pulse signal
1. Even if the ON signal is input during ON, the status will remain ON.
2. If the local remote controller is prohibited, the ON/OFF operation mode and temperature setting
operations by the local remote controller will be prohibited.
