What can be connected to the terminals "1WR" and "LED"?

The terminal labeled “1WR” is used to connect the signal (DATA) cable of the ТМ-reader или wired temperature sensor.

How to connect additional devices?

Each of the terminals - "Z1" and "Z2" - can be used as a zone (input) or an open collector (output).

Turn on or off the zone of the device can be on the tab “Zones".

If the zone is turned off, the terminal is considered an open collector and can be used when setting up automation. The name of the open collector coincides with the marking of the terminal ("Z1", "Z2").

A positive load cable, the power of which will turn on when the open collector is closed, must be connected to the “12V” terminal.

If the zone is enabled, it can only be used as an input. The signal cable of the zone must be connected to the “Zx” terminal, and the common cable of the terminal - to the “GND” terminal.

  1. Clamping terminals replaced by removable;
  2. A beeper is installed instead of speaker;
  3. An additional GND terminal has been added; therefore, the sequence of the lower terminals has been changed:
    * It was (bottom up): GND, 12 V, 1WR.
    * It is now: 12 V, GND, GND, 1WR.
