RB Series Relay Board
Installation Instructions
P03-025
DESCRIPTION
The LifeSafety Power RB Series of relays provides dual 2A,
5A, or 8A Form C dry relay contacts for general purpose usage. They are listed for use in access, ire, CCTV, burgular, or
mass notiication systems. They self-conigure for either a 12
or 24VDC input and can be used either as a standard relay
module, or as a sensitive trip relay (optional via jumper setting). Mounting is via SNAPTRACK™ for listed applications or
via double stick tape for non-listed applications.

MOUNTING
The RB series of relay modules may be mounted using either
the included double-sided tape, or separately purchased 2TK
SNAPTRACK. Listed applications must use 2TK SNAPTRACK
for mounting in a metal enclosure to maintain listing.
To mount an RB relay module using the included double-sided
tape, irst select a location to mount the relay module and ensure the mounting surface is clean and free of dust, oil, or other
contaminants. Ensure the back of the RB relay board is also
clean. Remove the backing from one side of each piece of tape
and stick to the bottom of the RB relay board under the terminal
strips. Remove the backing from the other side of both pieces
of tape and stick the relay to the mounting surface, pressing
irmly to ensure thorough adhesion.
To mount an RB relay module using SNAPTRACK, irst cut an
appropriate length of 2TK SNAPTRACK for the relay(s) being
mounted. Mark and predrill a minimum of two mounting holes
within the slots of the SNAPTRACK. Attach the SNAPTRACK
to the mounting surface using hardware appropriate for the
surface, ensuring the heads of the mounting hardware will not
hit the bottom of the RB board when installed. Snap the RB
board(s) into the grooves of the SNAPTRACK.

JUMPER SETUP
The RB relay board has one jumper (JP1) to conigure the relay
for conventional operation or sensitive trip.

All terminals accept AWG12 to AWG22 wire.
T– Terminal
The Negative trip input when the relay is used in sensitive trip
mode. If the relay is being used in conventional mode, this
terminal should be left open (no connection). When in sensitive trip mode, placing DC Common (P–) on this terminal will
activate the relay.
P+ and P– Terminals
The main power connection for the RB relay board. These terminals accept 12VDC or 24VDC. The relay self-conigures for
the input voltage – no adjustment or jumper change is required.
T+ Terminal
The Positive trip input when the relay is used in sensitive trip
mode. If the relay is being used in conventional mode, this
terminal should be left open (no connection). When in sensitive trip mode, a positive voltage placed on this terminal will
activate the relay.

COM, NC, and NO Terminals
The relay contacts. The RB relay board has two separate
Form C relay contacts (DPDT) – one associated with each
terminal strip bank.

WIRING
LifeSafety Power is a trademark of LifeSafety Power Inc. or its affiliates. SNAPTRACK is a trademark of Tyco Electronics.
Position 2 Sensitive Trip
When JP1 is in position 2, the RB board requires a constant
12 or 24VDC across the P+ and P– terminals, but the relay will
not activate until a valid trip signal is received on either the T+
or T– terminal. See the Wiring section for more information.
Position 1 Conventional
When JP1 is in position 1, the relay will activate when 12 or
24VDC is placed across the P+ and P– terminals.
