ICS Hazardous Area Page/Party® Station Quick Installation Guide
Important Safety Instructions
Read, follow, and retain instructions – All safety and operating instructions should be read and followed before operating the unit. Retain instructions for future
Heed warnings – Adhere to all warnings on the unit and in the operating instructions.
Attachments – Attachments not recommended by the product manufacturer should not be used, as they may cause hazards.
Servicing – Do not attempt to service this unit by yourself. Opening or removing covers may expose you to dangerous voltage or other hazards. Refer all
servicing to qualified service personnel.
This permanently connected apparatus must have a UL Listed 15-amp circuit breaker incorporated in the electrical installation of the building.
USA and Canada Consult the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70), Canadian Standards Association (CSA 22.1), and local codes for specific requirements regarding
your installation. Class 2 circuit wiring must be performed in accordance with NEC 725.55.
In 24 V dc systems: Under NO condition should this equipment be operated from a battery charger without the batteries connected.
In 24 V dc systems, most chargers have an unloaded output of 35 to 45 volts that can quickly damage the equipment designed for nominal 24 volts. The maximum
battery voltage should never exceed the maximum specified input voltage.
These enclosures must be installed by trained, qualified and competent personnel. Installation must comply with state and national regulations, as well as safety
practices for this type of equipment.
Do not install this equipment in hazardous areas other than those indicated on the approval listing in the “Specifications” section. Such
installation may cause a safety hazard and consequent injury or property damage.
The mounting location must be flat and provide proper clearance, rigidity and strength to support the enclosure and all contained devices. The enclosures are equipped
with factory-installed hinges. The enclosures should be mounted with hinges on the left.
Do not mount the enclosure with hinges on the top or bottom side.
Securely fasten the enclosure to the mounting location, using 3/8-inch (10mm) diameter steel mounting bolts and washers, or washer head bolts.
Do not disconnect equipment while energized.
Insure proper grounding to protective earthing.
Inspect and clean the machined flange flame joint surfaces of both the cover and box. Surfaces must be smooth, free of nicks, scratches, dirt or any foreign particle
build-up that would prevent a proper seal. Surfaces must seat fully against each other to provide a proper explosion-proof joint. Clean surfaces by wiping with a clean
lint-free cloth.
Apply a light coat of Killark “LUBG” lubricant to flange surfaces and close the cover. Install and tighten all cover bolts to 30 ft.-lbs. Make certain no cover bolts are
omitted. Use only those bolts supplied with the enclosure.
When installing an add-on station, consult the appropriate system layout diagrams. These figures, when used in conjunction with the station installation information
and cable layout guide, should provide all the information necessary to install additional Page/Party stations.
General Information and Available Options
This guide covers the installation of the ICS Hazardous Area Page/Party® Station. Figure 1 shows configurations with the following options:
Universal ac or 24 V dc
Single or multi-party system
Amplifier only
Alternate page destination
Emergency party line (EPL)
All Call
Figure 1. ICS Station with available options (AC Version shown)
All ICS Stations are wired in parallel. Good system layout design minimizes the cable required. Refer to Pub. 42004-723L2 at the “Manuals & Specs” link at
www.gai-tronics.com for detailed explanations of the available configuration options and adjustments, and system design information.

Mounting the Enclosure
NOTE: The mounting surface must be able to support the weight of the 50-lb. aluminum station.
The enclosure must be securely fastened with 3/8-inch (10mm) diameter steel mounting bolts located on all four mounting feet. Refer to Figure 2. Stainless steel
hardware is recommended in outdoor applications.
NOTE: Refer to the Killark Installation, Operation, and Maintenance Data Sheet enclosed with the unit for additional information.
Cable Entries
Refer to Figure 3 for the standard NPT conduit entries, and Figure 4 for the standard metric cable gland entries. Ensure any unused openings are sealed with proper
fittings per local standards. All metric cable entry devices and blanking elements shall be certified in type of explosion protection flameproof enclosure “d” with an
IP66 rating, suitable for conditions of use and correctly installed. Any conduit NPT plugs (blanking elements) must be explosion-proof with a Type 4X rating. Use
field wiring suitable for the ambient temperature. Basic wiring connections are shown in Figure 5. Use GAI-Tronics 60029 series multi-party cable or 60038 single
party cable terminated with #6 spade lugs. Torque the terminal block screws to 8–10 in-lbs. (0.90–1.13 n-m) when attaching the spade lugs.
