Installation Notes
The wiring must be in compliance with all codes and must not
be of such length or wire size that would cause the appliance to
operate outside of its published specifications. The appliances
must also be tested after installation in accordance with the control panel manufacturer’s test procedure.
*NOTE: Shown with control panel in alarm. Panel polarity
reversed in supervisory condition.
Do not loop wires under terminal screws. Wires connecting the device to the panel must be broken at the
device screw terminal in order to maintain electrical
PA400 Sounders
1. The PA400 is intended for mounting to a standard 21⁄2″ deep
single-gang box which allows sufficient clearance for conduit
2. The PA400 is compatible with DC line supervision. The Piezo
Alert is polarized and has terminals marked with polarity.
Apply positive supply voltage to the (+) terminal and negative supply voltage to the (–) terminal. (See Figure 1.)
3. Mount the appliance to the electrical outlet box using the two
mounting screws supplied.
