Installation Instructions:
The unit should be installed in accordance with article 760 of The National Electrical Code as well as NFPA 72 and all
applicable Local Codes.
1. Mount the unit in desired location.
2. Set the unit to the desired DC output voltage by setting SW1 (Fig. 1B, pg. 3) to the appropriate position
(Power Supply Voltage Output Selections Chart, pg. 3).
3. Secure cabinet to earth gournd. Connect AC power (115VAC / 60 Hz to terminals marked [L, G, N] (Fig. 1, pg. 3).
Use 14 AWG or larger for all power connections (Battery, DC output, AC input).
Use 22 AWG to 18 AWG for power limited circuits (AC Fail/Low Battery reporting).
Keep power limited wiring separate from non-power limited wiring (115VAC / 60Hz Input, Battery Wires).
Minimum .25” spacing must be provided.
4. Measure output voltage before connecting device. This helps avoid potential damage.
When servicing the unit, AC mains should be removed.
5. Connect devices to be powered:
a. For AL300ULX Power Supply connect devices to terminals marked [+ DC -]. (Fig. 1, pg. 3)
b. For other Power Distribution Models connect devices to be powered to terminal pairs 1 to 4 marked
[1P & 1N thru 4P & 4N] (Fig. 2A & 2B, pg. 5) or 1 to 8 marked [1P & 1N thru 8P & 8N] (Fig. 3A & 3B, pg. 5)
carefully observing correct polarity.
6. For Access Control applications, batteries are optional. When batteries are not used a loss of AC will result in the
loss of output voltage. When the use of stand-by batteries is desired, they must be lead acid or gel type.
7. Connect appropriate signaling notification devices to terminals marked [AC FAIL & BAT FAIL] (Fig. 1A, pg. 3)
supervisory relay outputs.
Note: When used in fire alarm, burglar alarm or access control applications, “AC Fail” relay must be used to
provide a visual indication of AC power on.
8. Please insure that the cover is secured with the provided Key Lock.

AC FAIL
N.C., C, N.O.
Used to notify loss of AC power, e.g. connect to annuciator/alarm
panel. Relay normally energized when AC power is present.
Contact rating 1 amp @ 30VDC. AC Fail condition will report approximately
one (1) to one minute after loss of AC. To delay report for 6 hours cut jumper
J1 on the Power Supply Board (AC trouble output delay option). If this mode
is selected the Power Supply Board must be reset by removing all power to it
for 30 seconds.
BAT FAIL
N.C., C, N.O.
Used to indicate low battery condition, e.g. connect to alarm panel.
Relay normally energized when DC power is present.
Contact rating 1 amp @ 30VDC. Low battery conditions will report approximately 21VDC (24VDC output setting) or approximately 10.5VDC (12VDC
output setting). Battery presence detection will report approximately 1 minute
after battery remains undetected (missing or removed).

Wiring:
USE 14 AWG or larger for all power connections.
Note: Take care to keep power limited circuits separate from non-power limited wiring (115VAC, Battery).
Maintenance:
Unit should be tested at least once a year for the proper operation as follows:
Output Voltage Test: Under normal load conditions, the DC output voltage should be checked for proper voltage level
(Power Supply Voltage Output Specifications Chart, pg. 3).
Battery Test: Under normal load conditions check that the battery is fully charged, check specified voltage both at
battery terminal and at the board terminals marked [- BAT +] to insure there is no break in the battery connection
wires.
Note: Maximum charging current under discharges is .7 amp.
Note: Expected battery life is 5 years, however it is recommended changing batteries in 4 years or less if needed.
