NOTE: Detailed instructions and specifications exist within the manufacturer’s Quick Start Guide. This document is intended as a collection of recommendations only based on our application of the manufacturer’s documentation and experience gained with previous installations.
When mounting, consider that the gland plate is on the back of the unit and access may be required. Bolting the unit to a wall may limit the ability to gain access.
Mains supply required (permanently on).
The unit is supplied with a “kettle-style” lead complete with 3-pin plug.
It is recommended that the mains supply is accessible in the event that the unit needs to be isolated i.e. not in roof voids etc
Cat 5 cable. The unit has an in-built RJ45 socket (mounted within the board)
If the switch / hub it is connected to isn’t accessible, it is recommended to wire via a local RJ45 socket to allow local access to the board in the event of an issue
RS232 – shielded twisted cable.
The scanner comes with a lead and we supply a 9-pin D type socket (Phoenix) to connect to this with screw clamp terminals (prevents the need for soldering).
The XL RS-232 plug is the left hand one (when looking from the back), next to the relay outputs.
The scanner also requires a local mains supply and a power adapter.
All input signals should be wired volt-free i.e. the input is shorted to the XL’s own 0 volts to trigger the input (sinking mode) or 12 volts to trigger the input (sourcing mode).
Providing relays with N/O contacts is recommended.
