2. Connect 12 to 24 Volts AC or DC to terminals marked [+ DC -- AC ]. (when using DC carefully observe polarity).
3. Connect 12VDC battery (optional) to terminals marked [+ BAT -- 12VDC].
4. Insert lithium battery (optional/not supplied. Order part LB2032) in battery holder as shown in fig. 1 pg. 4.
With the + positive side facing up.
5. Connect devices to be controlled to dry outputs marked [NO, C, NC].
Note: It is important when connecting DC powered electromechanical devices such as Mag Locks, Electric
Strikes, Bells, Relays, etc. to install a catch diode across the pos (+) and neg (-) terminals of the device.
Connect diode as close to the device as possible with the banded side facing the pos (+) terminal. This will
reduce the possibility of interference.
6. Program clock and desired event schedule (see programming instructions pg. 4-6).

Altronix is not responsible for any typographical errors. Product specifications are subject to change without notice.
Basic Operation:
PT724A controls an independently operated dry form “C” relay output. Relay can be programmed to: turn on (latch),
turn off (release latch) or pulse (momentary toggle) at a specified time and day (this is referred to as an event). Events
are programmed via the push buttons and LCD display. Events may be programmed to occur on any day of the week at
any time. In addition, events may be repeated at a specific time on two (2) or more consecutive days (i.e. M-F, Sun-Th,
etc) Multiple combinations of individual and block events may be programmed. Holiday exceptions are individually
selected by date and will over-ride all regularly scheduled events.
The four (4) output relay modes consist of:
Relay OFF - De-energizes the relay until a relay ON event is detected
Relay ON - Energizes the relay until a relay OFF event is detected.
Disable - Used to cancel an existing programmed event.
Pulse - Momentarily energizes the relay for a selectable time period of 1 sec. to 15 secs.
Time is displayed in 24 hr. military format.
Terminal Identification Table:
Terminal Legend Function/Description
NO, C, NC
Dry Contact output used to switch controlled devices. When these relays are energized (ON)
the NC and C terminals are open and the NO and C terminals are closed. When this relay is
de-energized (Off) the NC and C terminals are closed and the NO and C terminals are open.
+ DC -AC
AC or DC Input 12 to 24 volt. When using DC carefully observe polarity.
+ BAT -12VDC
12VDC standby battery input (battery leads provided).
FM
When this terminal is connected to DC neg. (-) the “First Man in” feature is enabled.
The relay will remain in its present position until this connection is terminated.
At that time the relay will resume normal operation and latest scheduled events will occur.
