1.5 Sensor/Relay device pinhole allocation

The I/O card enables you to connect (4) sensor inputs and (4) relay outputs. Just connect the external sensor and relay pin directly to the I/O card pinhole. Check the table below and locate which pinhole is assigned to sensor input and relay output.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20

The signal from the sensor (i.e., infrared sensors, smoke detectors, proximity sensors, door sensors, etc.) is being transmitted to the I/O card and this triggers the system to respond and send signal to relay device (i.e., alarm, telephone etc).
