  1. To meet CE and C-tick regulations, the length of the controller power line can be no longer than 3 Meters (9.85 feet).
  2. Use the shortest possible path from earth ground point to PCB. Connect the earth ground only to the designated pin on the terminal block. This is important as all transient protection for the unit is made through this earth ground connection. For unit protection, the earth ground connection should always be made first.
  3. Values listed are minimums. Individual input and output devices may have more specific requirements.
Note: The Lock Output relay may require a heavier gauge of wire depending upon the current demands of the lock and the length of the lock wiring run.
