Digibell Vandal Resistant System
Introduction
The Digibell digital door entry telephone system is designed primarily for large blocks of flats
in the private or public housing sector, where reliability and serviceability are of prime
importance.
The Digibell system offers two levels of cable isolation: ‘Full Isolation’ (between individual
dwellings) for buildings where vandalism by residents may be high and ‘Zonal Isolation’
(between floors or zones) for a more cost effective system.
The use of a Digital entrance panel (with keypad and display) affords a more compact
solution when compared with a standard door entry panel (i.e. one button per flat) which may
be impractical due to its size.

System Operation
Entrance Panel
0-9, A>, <Z
Enter a flat number up to 4 digits. A> & <Z are used to enter the
alphabetic characters (A-Z); Press A> to enter A; subsequent
presses advance through the alphabet, while <Z can be used to step
backwards.
For example to enter flat number “C21”, press A> A> A> 2 1
Call
Press to call a flat once the correct number is displayed.
Cancel
Cancels the current entry leaving a blank display.
Reception
Press to call the Porter / Reception / Concierge
Trades
Press to gain direct access during restricted hours or using an
access code.
Call sequence
The caller firstly approaches the entrance panel and enters the required flat number followed
by the call button. This causes the phone to ring in the selected flat. The phone will continue
to ring for typically 30 seconds if not answered or until the resident responds by picking up
the handset. The call may be terminated by replacing the handset or more usually by
pressing the lock/key button to allow the visitor access through the entrance.

Phone Controls
All phones have 2-way speech and a lock button to release the door. For security, phones
must be called first and taken off the hook before the lock release button will function; a stuck
lock button will be ignored.
Ringer Mute
With some models of telephone (801PS, 801S & BS-LX) the resident can mute the ringing
sound of their phone when they do not wish to be disturbed.
Model 801PS/801S phones: Sliding the switch on the right hand side to the ON position
enables the ringer whilst the OFF position disables (mutes) the ringer.
Model BS-LX phone: Ringer mute is activated by pressing the mute button on the phone,
which illuminates red as a reminder. Pressing the mute button a second time will disengage
the mute function. During installation it is possible to set a time limit for the mute function in
various values from 2 minutes up to 10 hours or indefinitely. When this time period has
elapsed the mute function will automatically disengage (See ‘Phone settings’ in the reference
section). The mute feature stops the audible ring, but the red mute light will still flash to
indicate a call and all other functions work normally. Ringer mute will continue for the preset
time even if a call is answered.
Door Status Indication – BS-LX Only
The green lamp on the phone illuminates to warn the resident that a door has been left open
following a call. This feature requires a door monitor contact to be fitted.

Design Considerations
Please read in conjunction with the cable overview drawings starting on page 14 to determine
the equipment required for your system.
Entrance panels
All entrance panels are Stainless Steel Vandal Resistant and have a 4-digit red LED dotmatrix display mounted behind a protective LEXAN window. Both flush and surface types are
available. Surface entrance panels can also be supplied fitted to Stainless Steel posts of
varying heights for vehicle entrances or where it is impractical to fit directly on a building. The
‘LCP’ version is a flush Stainless Steel panel with welded back-box and laser cut bezel for
enhanced vandal resistance. Security screws are supplied with all entrance panel.
The entrance panels feature reassurance tones for lock and call operations and a trade’s
button/coded access facility (which requires a TS2000-BST time clock).

Phones connected to a DBA-4I Phone Isolator have privacy of speech inherent in the design
therefore models 801P and 801PS should not be used. All phones connected to the same
DBA-8Z Isolator must be the same model (a mixture of desk or wall mounting is allowed).
As standard a maximum of two phones are allowed in each flat. Contact your distributor if
more are required.
The phones specified above are wall mounting. For a desk-mount model, add ‘–DESK’ to any
of the 801 phone series part numbers.
Phones can be supplied with a hearing aid induction loop fitted: add ‘-IDL’ to the part number.
Privacy of Speech
Once a call has been initiated from an entrance panel only the phones which are ringing may
answer the call. The conversation cannot be overheard by another phone except an
extension phone in the same flat (i.e. one which had also been ringing). This feature is
available on systems with Full Isolation (all phone models) and on Zonal Isolation (801P,
801PS and BS-LX models only).
Extension sounders and flashing strobe
The RT27 extension sounder can be fitted instead of a 2nd phone and has a similar volume
level and sound to the 801 series phones.
The SG1 sound generator has an adjustable volume level and 8 different tones. The volume
is louder than an RT27, but requires an extra 12V DC power supply such as a model 340C.
This power supply should be fitted close to the SG1. There is a maximum of 3 units per flat.
A FB31 flashing beacon is also available for the hard of hearing. The device requires an extra
power supply such as the 340C which should be a short distance from the FB31. There is a
maximum of 3 units per flat.
Note it is not possible to have a DBA-4I or DBA-8Z Isolator phone output connected to just
extension sounders or a strobe, a phone must be present.

Digibell Vandal Resistant System
Lock Releases
The BSD-DIG door controller supports both fail-secure and fail-safe lock releases including
magnetic locks of up to 1A rating at 12V DC. Suitable transient voltage protection must be
fitted across any Maglock or lock release (Some Maglocks have protection inbuilt).
If a voltage free output is required for an automatic gate trigger, or connection to another
system, an additional 12V DC relay will be needed, e.g. model 89.
Whether the lock is released from the phone, the Trades button or Exit button the door will
unlock for a pre-programmed time (adjustable 1-99 seconds, default 3 seconds).
Various lock releases can be supplied for standard timber frame doors, please contact your
sales representative for advice.
Exit button (Egress)
An input is provided for an exit button, which can be installed on the inside of the door and
allow residents to exit freely. Momentary operation of this button will operate the lock release
for the programmed lock time. The button must be of the ‘push to make’ type.
Fireman’s switch, Break glass or Emergency exit button
These should all be wired directly in series with the Fail safe lock release or Maglock itself, so
that they break the connection when operated.
Trades Facility
The Trades button allows access to the postman or other authorized tradesmen usually
during restricted hours and, if so programmed, after entering a four digit access code
(requires a TS2000-BST time clock).
Coded Access Facility
The system can allow access with two 4 digit codes. Normally 1 is allocated for use with the
Trades facility and the other is used for general resident or caretaker access. The Trades
button is used to initiate entry of either code.
Multiple Entrances
The Digibell system allows multiple entrances to be catered for (up to a maximum of 16) with
the addition of a door controller and entrance panel for each entrance and additional power
supplies as necessary.
DDA Functionality
There are a range of options for entrance panels to help meet the requirements of the
Disability Discrimination Act (DDA), including Braille characters and hearing aid induction
loop. Contact your sales representative for further details.
Gate and Block Systems
Sites with 2 or more blocks sharing a vehicle or pedestrian gate are catered for with a BSSW
Gate/Block isolator (1 per block). The blocks can then work independently but will receive
calls from the shared entrances/gates. Please refer to ‘Digibell Gate and Block Supplement.

Digibell Vandal Resistant System
Cable requirements
All system wiring must be carried out using CAT5 data cable except were otherwise
specified. CAT5 is necessary as it has a guaranteed noise performance and meets the
requirements of the EMC directive.
Flex or ‘Twin and Earth’ (1.0mm2 min.) is specified for 12V power connections etc ( see
table below).
Bell System will be unable to offer any warranty or support for systems installed using
incorrect cables.
Cat5 Cable Specification
Cat5 is our short reference for EIA standard UTP Category 5 Unshielded Twisted Pair data
cable. This is a standard 0.5mm diameter 0.2mm² solid core twisted pair cable having 4
pairs (8–cores) and no shield. The cores are in pairs where Blue and ‘Blue with a White
stripe’ are twisted together as the first pair. The other three pairs are similar with main
colours Orange, Green and Brown.
•
Also available and acceptable are:
UTP Category 5e (Cat5e)
UTP Category 6 (CAT6)
UTP Category 6e (CAT6e)
The exact cable can be chosen from the above on cost and availability grounds.
•
UTP CAT5 Patch cable is normally more expensive, but is suitable.
•
STP (Shielded Twisted Pair) cables are not recommended.
NOTE: Cat5 cable is easily identifiable as the specification is printed on the sheath.

Installation & Commissioning Guide
Installation
1. Review the section headed ‘Safety information’ on Page 55.
2. Check the equipment supplied is as required; refer to the previous section if
necessary.
3. Ensure the correct cable type is used (CAT5 and 1.0mm2).
4. Install the system according to instructions in this section.
5. For optional wiring such as a Trades time clock, Fob reader or gate trigger relay refer
to diagrams 12, 13 or 14.
6. Fit each component, checking the maximum cable distances shown on the cable
overviews in the previous section.
Commissioning
Settings
1. Set the flat addresses of each DBA-4I or DBA-8Z Isolator referring to the following
sections.
2. Entrance and caller settings (speech time, ring time, unlock time, etc) are adjusted
through each entrance panel at the associate entrance. Refer to the ‘Entrance panel
programming’ section page 22.
3. Settings specific to each phone, such as ring volume and buzzer mute time, when
available, are set inside each phone with a jumper or Dipswitch. Refer to the ‘Phone
Settings’ section.
4. Speech levels are adjusted at each entrance panel behind the speech grill, with a
separate adjustment for each direction of speech. A howling or whistling sound may
indicate the volumes levels are set to high.
Testing / Connecting
The major components of the Digibell system are fitted with high quality pluggable screw
terminal blocks. This enables all the connections to the system to be fully completed, whilst
easily isolating individual pieces of equipment during testing and commissioning.
Any problems can be resolved by rechecking wiring and connections, assisted by the various
suggestions and tests in the section ‘Troubleshooting’.
Connect up one entrance first, leaving any connection to Isolators or phones unplugged:
1. When powered up for the first time, it is recommended that only the most basic system
is connected, i.e. 4/8 phones, 1 BSD-DIG Door controller and entrance panel, 1 DBAxx Isolator, the remaining equipment can be isolated by removing terminal blocks.
2. Check the display and buttons on the entrance panel work as expected.
3. If there is an exit button check the door will unlock.
4. Proceed to test the system by calling each phone from the entrance panel in the
normal way, check any available phone features such as buzzer mute or door status.
Once the basic system is fully functioning, continue to connect and test equipment
item by item until completed.
Entrance Panel
The mounting height should be considered carefully and applicable standards checked, such
as Building regulations and Disabled access. Entrance panels should have mastic applied to
PD-169 Issue 3A
Installation Guide
Page 20 of 56
Digibell Vandal Resistant System
the top and side edges of the front plate on the side touching the wall to prevent water
ingress behind the panel, but not the bottom edge. On construction sites the panel must be
protected from corrosive substances such as ‘brick acid’. The panel should be cleaned only
with a damp cloth containing dilute detergent.
Electric Door Release
Both fail-secure and fail-safe lock releases (including Maglocks) use the same terminals. To
change the lock type, refer to the ‘LOCK’ on page 24. When installing lock releases please
allow a little movement on the door, as operation will be impaired if fitted too tight or the
tongue of the lock extends too deeply into the lock release.
N.B. Magnetic locks (Maglocks) must be fitted with suitable transient voltage suppression
device at the Maglock. Some Maglock manufacturers fit an internal suppressor.
Entry and exit considerations
Most fail-secure exit doors incorporate a mechanical means of egress rather than an exit
button. Fire officers usually specify a door handle or push bar to open a door on a fire exit
route – not, for example, a thumb-turn.
Fail secure lock releases are not generally continuously rated however if the entrance needs
to be unlocked all day and the door entry system only used at night, then a continuously
rated release must be used.
Powered bolt, shoot-bolt, Shear lock or other more secure door locking systems may require
the use of a separate power supply and relay or a suppressor to be fitted.
A not uncommon problem with Maglocks, which cannot be mechanically overridden, is being
locked out of the building due to lost codes, fobs or equipment failure. So consider an
alternative building entrance, or an externally accessible secure key-switch, or a reliable
method of disabling the system during overnight secure lockup.
Exit Button input
The exit button input is used to unlock the door for the set time (default 3 seconds). The input
is designed for use with normally open push buttons.
‘Exit +’ terminal is the input/trigger and ‘Exit –‘ is internally connected to 0V.
The ‘Exit +’ input can also be used for connection to other equipment to open the entrance. It
is recommended that a relay is used to isolate/interface this connection when using third
party equipment.
Door Open Switch
The door open switch is used to provide an indication at the phone that the door has been left
open. This switch can have closed contacts when the door is closed or open contacts when
the door is closed; this selection is described in ‘Panel programming’. The default of ‘contact
open when door closed’ must be selected when this feature is not required.
Time Clock Sharing
In a large system a single time clock can be shared between distributed equipment areas by
borrowing one of the ‘commn –‘ wires in the interconnecting CAT5 to use as the shared ‘Time
clock common’. See the detailed diagram 12.

Tradesman and Coded Access Codes
(see Table below for full list)
Security
It is strongly recommended that the Panel Security Code (PSEC) be changed from its factory
setting to prevent unauthorized access. Record the new number carefully as it cannot be
easily changed if lost. It is also recommended that the Phone Programming Code (PPRG),
Coded Access Code (ACOD) and Trades Access Code (TCOD) are all changed from default
even if not used.
To access panel programming without the code requires physical access to the controller
associated BSD-DIG PCB, borrow a jumper from say video gain and place it on the 5 pin
programming header between pins 1 & 2 (pin 1 is marked). Now pressing the test button will
enter panel programming for 30S when the panel security code can be read or set. When
the programming is finished replace the jumper back to its original location.
Using Panel Programming Mode:•
First type the Panel Security Code (initially 3434) followed by the call button.
•
The display will show the first programmable parameter (ACOD),
(The display alternates, at 1 sec. Intervals, between the parameter name and its value.)
•
Press the Trades button to step down through the programmable parameters.
•
Press the Reception button to step up through the programmable parameters.
•
The list rolls over bottom to top and vice versa.
•
To change a numeric parameter simply type a new 1-4-digit value and then press call.
•
Some parameters have a list of options; simply press call to choose the next value.
•
To exit Panel Program Mode press cancel.
•
If no button is pressed for 30S then programming mode will auto-cancel.

DBA-4I 4 Way Phone Isolator
The DBA-4I Isolator is used to distribute wiring to up to 4 flats, whilst providing isolation
between flats. This isolation ensures that a cable fault within one flat will not stop phones
within other flats functioning.
There is a maximum of 2 phones in each flat. Adding a 2nd phone / extension phone reduces
the maximum number of flats that can be powered from the same Power supply.
Isolator PCB’s are normally supplied in an individual ABS plastic enclosure, but can be
supplied in multiples in a lockable IP55 Steel cabinet (with or without power supplies). All
control equipment must be placed in a protected indoor environment.

Programming flat addresses
The address is the flat number which is entered at the entrance panel in order to call a
resident. These addresses are programmed on each of the Isolator PCB’s by selecting the
positions of the rotary switch SW6 and the 8-way dipswitch SW7. In the simplest scenario
SW6 selects the address of the first phone on the isolator whilst the addresses of the other
three follow in sequence as shown in the table below:

Common Numbering Schemes
In many buildings the flat numbering does not follow a single sequence as illustrated above;
there are often separate sequences for each floor and each sequence begins with a different
number (e.g. 101.. 201.. ). Most requirements can be achieved by adding an offset address
PD-169 Issue 3A
Installation Guide
Page 28 of 56
Digibell Vandal Resistant System
to each Isolator. This offset enables any start address (i.e. the address of the first flat) to be
set between 1 and 3200.
The offset address is set using dipswitch SW7:
SW7 switch
Offset

2
+2
3

4
+100

Example
[q2e4t6ui]
^

^
^
+100 +400
Total offset = +502
Simply add the Total offset value of SW7 switches to the addresses selected by SW6 (See
the table on page 28).

Unused phone connections - Important
It may be desirable to use less than 4 connections on a given isolator for convenience of
cable or building layout. E.g. if there are 3 flats on each floor: use one isolator per floor.
However it is important that in any numbering scheme there are no duplicate flat addresses
or the corresponding phones may not operate correctly. All unused outputs should
therefore be disabled.
Unused outputs must have a wire link placed between O and T on
their terminal block.
PD-169 Issue 3A
Installation Guide
Page 29 of 56
Digibell Vandal Resistant System
Example:
If the 1st floor has flats 1, 2, 3 and the 2nd floor has flats 4, 5, 6 and one Isolator is used for
each floor. The 4th Phone output on the 1st floor Isolator will need disabling; otherwise two
outputs will try to ring flat 4.
Special addressing
On the rare occasion when flat numbers skip every other number, e.g. 1,3,5,7 or 2,4,6,8 etc
the jumper on the ‘PROG’ 6 pin header can be moved to pins 3 and 4.
If flat numbers are required in the range 3200 to 6400 the jumper on the ‘PROG’ 6 pin header
can be moved to pins 5 and 6. This simply adds an offset of +3200 to any address set on
SW6 and SW7.
Alphanumeric Flat Numbers
Flat numbers requiring alphabetic characters (e.g. A1-A8, B101-B108, 101C-108C) cannot
be programmed on the Isolators and must be programmed into each individual telephone.
Please contact Bell System for instructions in this case.

DBA-8Z 8 Way Zone isolator
The DBA-8Z Isolator is used to distribute wiring to a ‘zone’ of up to 8 flats whilst providing
isolation from other zones. This isolation ensures that a cable fault within one zone will not
affect the operation of phones within any other zone. It offers a good compromise between
equipment cost and ease of maintenance. If greater isolation is required please refer to the
DBA-4I Phone Isolator.
There is a maximum of 2 phones in each flat. Adding a 2nd phone / extension phone reduces
the maximum number of flats that can be powered from the same Power supply.
Isolator PCB’s are normally supplied in an individual ABS plastic enclosure, but can be
supplied in multiples in a lockable IP55 Steel cabinet (with or without power supplies). All
control equipment must be placed in a protected indoor environment.

Special addressing
On the rare occasion when flat numbers skip every other number, e.g. 1,3,5,7 etc or 2,4,6,8
etc the jumper on the ‘PROG’ 6 pin header can be moved to pins 3 and 4.
If flat numbers are required in the range 3200 to 6400 the jumper on the ‘PROG’ 6 pin header
can be moved to pins 5 and 6. This simple adds an offset of +3200 to any address set on
SW6 and SW7.
Alphanumeric Flat Numbers
Flat numbers requiring alphabetic characters ( eg A1-A8, B101-B108, 101C-108C) cannot be

Troubleshooting
Common Faults
A very high percentage of calls to our technical support number, regarding new installations,
are resolved to faulty wiring. The reasons for these are various: •
•
•
•
•
Broken cores, especially short links, sometimes broken inside the insulation.
Connectors clamped onto the insulation instead of copper.
Wires incorrectly positioned in the rising clamp connection of the terminal blocks; unscrew
the terminal fully before inserting the wire to prevent it from going “underneath” the clamp.
Short or open circuits due to cables having been stapled or nailed through.
A common fault is wiring a connector left to right instead of right to left, or one or more
twisted pairs the wrong way round.
Tip.
The heads of screws on connectors are not a reliable means of making a connection
with a meter, try pushing the probe into the wire entry point.
The following tables provide a quick indication of the possible fault:
Lock Release Problems
Lock release does not operate
or click.
(refer to Lock Test below)
Connections to the Lock release are open/short-circuited.
Voltage drop; cable diameter is too small.
Lock current is too high; (PSU is resetting or overloaded.)
Lock release jammed due to over tight fitting; check there
is some ‘play’ between the lock and lock release.
Version number displayed on
Entrance Panel (e.g. ‘V3.0’)
when operating the lock release
Short circuit on the Lock +/- terminals
Lock release taking too much current, voltage dipping.
Check PSU, cable diameter and Lock release rating.
Maglock does not hold strongly.
Voltage drop due to cable diameter too small.
Holding plate does fully contact magnet.
Lock release operates all the
time or in reverse
Check that the correct lock type is selected:
(See ‘Entrance Panel Programming – LOCK’ on page 24)
EXIT +/- input short-circuit
Exit button is ‘normally closed’ type
(should be ‘normally open’)
Lock operates from the exit
button but not the test button or
phone.
Normally closed switch has been used for the exit button.
Lock Test:
Press ‘Test’ Button on Door Controller BSD-DIG (when system is idle):
Confirm: ‘LOCK’ LED illuminates for 3 seconds or goes out for 3 seconds depending on lock
type selected; Check Output Voltage at LOCK terminals.

Entrance Panel Display Problems
No display
No power at display module BD10; check for a minimum of
10V between +V and 0V.
To test the display, turn the power off and then on and check
the software version is displayed for a few seconds:
Two version numbers are displayed, e.g. “BDV1” then “V4.0”,
the presence of the second number confirms the module is
receiving data from the BSD-DIG controller ( connection ‘D’).
Display indicates “F 1 – –”
“D” connection open circuit:
No message (data) received from the BSD-DIG controller.
Display indicates “F 2 – –”
“D” connection shorted to 0V:
No message (data) received from the BSD-DIG controller.
Telephone Ring Problems
Phone doesn’t ring
Address not set on the DBA-4I/8Z Isolator; refer to pg. 27/32.
I or O terminal not connected on the phone.
DBA-4I only – Phone is off-hook.
BS-LX phone: Phone is muted. Check red light is off.
V, I or O terminal not connected:
Check for 12V between V (+) and O (-).
Check for 12V between I (+) and O (-)
(when the phone should be ringing).
Data A or B cores to DBA-4I/8Z isolator open or short circuit
or shorted to 0V or 12V at any point.
(This would affect all phones on the isolator).
Call button or keypad wiring fault; check the correct flat
number is displayed and that pressing the Call button displays
the word ‘CALL’. Refer to pages 52 and 46.
Phone rings briefly then
stops
Low voltage to the DBA-4I/8Z Isolator; Check the cable
requirements page 13. Check there is at least 10V on the
12V+/- connection when the phone should be ringing.
BS-LX only - Low Voltage to phone; Check the cable
requirements page 13; Check voltage between ‘V’ and ‘O’ on
the phone when ringing.
Power supply voltage low, due to current overload. Check the
voltage at the power supply is 13-14V.
PD-169 Issue 3A
Installation Guide

Digibell Vandal Resistant System
BS-LX phone flashes red
and green periodically
instead of ringing
No 12V to connection ‘V’, check 12V between V and O on the
phone. Check the fuse on the DBA-4I/8Z isolator hasn’t
blown.
Speech Problems
Loud tone/howl at the
entrance speaker.
(Acoustic feedback)
Low volume speech in one
or both directions
•
Volume controls set too high at entrance
•
Broken Audio 1 or 2 wire in the cabling (between control
equipment).
•
Intermittent or broken wire in Data A or B
•
DBA-4I/8Z Isolator has reset; Low voltage to the DBA4I/8Z Isolator connected to that phone. Check the cable
requirements page 13. Check at least 10V on the 12V+/connection when the phone should be ringing.
•
Check model 61 speech unit is hard against the front plate
with no gaps.
•
Check model 61 speech unit is the right way up and that
the microphone hole in the speech unit lines up with the
hole in the panel.
•
Adjust pot on 61 speech unit marked A (with a speaker
symbol) for volume at the panel.
•
Adjust pot on 61 speech unit marked B (with a microphone
symbol) for volume at the phone.
•
If volume cannot be increased in one direction without
feedback, the volume in the other direction may have to be
reduced as a compromise.
•
Check model 61 is hard against the panel with no gaps.
•
Check model 61 speech unit is the right way round and
that the microphone hole in the speech unit lines up with
the hole in the panel.
•

Diagram 13 – Combined System Connections
Connecting a Bell PAX1 Proximity Reader
Connect the lock release as per this manual. Leave the Proximity Reader set to fail secure,
the BSD-DIG controller sets the lock type.
Note 1.
A normally open exit button can still be wired to the BSD-DIG controller in addition
to the proximity wiring.
Opening/Triggering a Gate or Locks on a Third Party System
Leave the BSD-DIG controller set to Fail secure.
Generally when connecting to a third party system the lock release should be connected as
recommended by the other manufacturer; the NO and COM connections from the 89 relay,
as shown above, should be connected to a trigger input on the third party system, often
marked RTE (request to exit). For further advice please contact your distributor.

Notes
1. Connect the lock release or Maglock using the ACT Manuals.
2. Leave the BSD-DIG controller set to Fail Secure regardless of the type of release used.
3. A normally open exit button can still be fitted to the ACT controller in addition to the
Digibell wiring.
4. If the 2 units are not sharing a power supply, then a connection from BSD-DIG controller
12V - to ACT 0V will be required.
5. Look for the notes on the ACT installation diagram concerning the use of links when the
door contact is not used and when a power supply without power fail is not used.

Model 840 Power Supply (with battery standby)
The Model 840 power supply must be placed in a protected indoor environment such as an
electrical cupboard. It must be secured to the wall with adequate fixings so that there is no
possibility of it falling. The Lead acid battery for the standby power supply is shipped in
separate packaging. It should only be connected once the system has been fully tested.
Connection is made by 2 leads with spade terminals; observe the correct polarity - red to
positive, black to negative. Care must be taken to ensure that the terminals of the battery are
not shorted together by metal objects, as this may constitute a Fire Hazard. A good mains
safety earth must be connected to all sections of the enclosure.
Where the power supply is fitted with a replaceable internal mains fuse and or battery fuse,
always replace with the same type as indicated on the power supply. The fuse must be
approved to BS EN 60127 or equivalent.

T2A 20mm HBC (HRC) Ceramic F4A 20mm Glass
Model PS4 Power Supply
These power supplies must be wall-mounted onto plasterboard, or a similar non-conductive
material, in a protected indoor environment such as an electrical cupboard. When fitting the
power supply cable (both mains and low voltage) ensure the cable entry cut-outs in the
enclosure lid are no larger than necessary for the cable diameter used and under no
circumstances must they be taken beyond the outer cut-out zones.
