2.
Run the cables into the backbox and connect them to the terminal block as shown in
Fig 2. Ensure that functional earth/screen continuity is maintained.
3.
Unlock the small front cover by inserting the forked key and pushing it home. Remove
key, slide the cover down and remove the deformable element. Connect the terminal
block as shown in Fig. 2, secure the call point to the backbox and refit the deformable
element as required. Finally, replace the front cover in the reverse order in which it was
removed and push it up until it locks.
The call points should be installed in a position where they will not be subjected to
mechanical stresses and where the temperature is within operating temperature range.
Areas where there are, or are likely to be, aggressive substances should be avoided.
Transparent Hinged Cover (fl ip lid)
To provide additional protection against accidental operation of call points, a transparent
hinged cover, part no. 26729-152 is available.
To prevent against malicious activations of call points, locking tags are also avaliable, part
