Relay is not getting trigger due to incorrect wiring.


To wire a relay output.

  1. Insert the blue terminal block into the relay sockets on the back panel of the recorder.
  2. Connect one wire from the device to one of the relay output terminals 1 through 16.

    Relay outputs do not have to correspond numerically to alarm inputs. All sensor input and relay output actions can be linked through programming.
  3. Connect a second wire from the relay device to a GND terminal.


Note: The DX8100 has either 8 or 16 relay outputs depending on your system's configuration. Each output is programmed to function as either a Normally open or Normally closed circuit.  A signal from a relay output  will operate the device connected to the output. The maximum relay power rating is 120VAC, 0.5A; 24 VDC, 1A.
