USA and Canada Consult the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70), Canadian Standards Association (CSA 22.1), and local codes for specific requirements regarding
your installation. Class 2 circuit wiring must be performed in accordance with NEC 725.55.
In 24 V dc systems: Under NO condition should this equipment be operated from a battery charger without the batteries connected.
In 24 V dc systems, most chargers have an unloaded output of 35 to 45 volts that can quickly damage the equipment designed for nominal 24 volts. The maximum
battery voltage should never exceed the maximum specified input voltage.

Figure 1. ICS Station with available options (AC Version shown)
All ICS Stations are wired in parallel. Good system layout design minimizes the cable required. Refer to Pub. 42004-725L2 at the
“Manuals & Specs” link at www.gai-tronics.com for detailed explanations of the available configuration options and adjustments,
system design information, and warranty.
Mounting and Wiring
Mount the enclosure using the four 0.312-inch (8 mm) diameter holes located on the mounting flanges with ¼-inch (M6) hardware.
The standard orientation (shown in Figure 1) locates the power supply housing in the upper left corner. The orientation of the
enclosure can be rotated 180º to allow clear access on the top. The Termination PCBA can then be rotated for correct orientation.
Remove front panel and drill or punch wire entry openings in the rear enclosure. See Figure 2 for suggested locations. There must be
a minimum of ½ inch (12.7 mm) of material between wire entry holes. The recommended entry is via the enclosure bottom to prevent
moisture from dripping onto the terminals. Avoid the top left as it may interfere with the power supply. Basic wiring connections are
shown on Figure 3. Use GAI-Tronics 60029 series multi-party cable or 60038 series single party cable terminated with #6 spade lugs.
Torque the terminal block screws to 8–10 in-lbs. (0.90–1.13 n-m) when attaching the spade lugs.
