RB Series Relay Board Installation Instructions P03-025 DESCRIPTION The LifeSafety Power RB Series of relays provides dual 2A, 5A, or 8A Form C dry relay contacts for general purpose usage. They are listed for use in access, ire, CCTV, burgular, or mass notiication systems. They self-conigure for either a 12 or 24VDC input and can be used either as a standard relay module, or as a sensitive trip relay (optional via jumper setting). Mounting is via SNAPTRACK™ for listed applications or via double stick tape for non-listed applications.

Listed applications must use 2TK SNAPTRACK for mounting in a metal enclosure to maintain listing. To mount an RB relay module using the included double-sided tape, irst select a location to mount the relay module and ensure the mounting surface is clean and free of dust, oil, or other contaminants. Ensure the back of the RB relay board is also clean. Remove the backing from one side of each piece of tape and stick to the bottom of the RB relay board under the terminal strips. Remove the backing from the other side of both pieces of tape and stick the relay to the mounting surface, pressing irmly to ensure thorough adhesion. To mount an RB relay module using SNAPTRACK, irst cut an appropriate length of 2TK SNAPTRACK for the relay(s) being mounted. Mark and predrill a minimum of two mounting holes within the slots of the SNAPTRACK. Attach the SNAPTRACK to the mounting surface using hardware appropriate for the surface, ensuring the heads of the mounting hardware will not hit the bottom of the RB board when installed. Snap the RB board(s) into the grooves of the SNAPTRACK. RB Series Relay Board Installation Instructions 2 JUMPER SETUP The RB relay board has one jumper (JP1) to conigure the relay for conventional operation or sensitive trip. 1 2 1 2 All terminals accept AWG12 to AWG22 wire. T– Terminal The Negative trip input when the relay is used in sensitive trip mode. If the relay is being used in conventional mode, this terminal should be left open (no connection). When in sensitive trip mode, placing DC Common (P–) on this terminal will activate the relay. P+ and P– Terminals The main power connection for the RB relay board. These terminals accept 12VDC or 24VDC. The relay self-conigures for the input voltage – no adjustment or jumper change is required. T+ Terminal The Positive trip input when the relay is used in sensitive trip mode. If the relay is being used in conventional mode, this terminal should be left open (no connection). When in sensitive trip mode, a positive voltage placed on this terminal will activate the relay. TB2 Common 2 COM, NC, and NO Terminals The relay contacts. The RB relay board has two separate Form C relay contacts (DPDT) – one associated with each terminal strip bank.

Position 2 Sensitive Trip When JP1 is in position 2, the RB board requires a constant 12 or 24VDC across the P+ and P– terminals, but the relay will not activate until a valid trip signal is received on either the T+ or T– terminal. See the Wiring section for more information. Position 1 Conventional When JP1 is in position 1, the relay will activate when 12 or 24VDC is placed across the P+ and P– terminals.
