Connecting an accessory to the operator alert contacts

The operator alert assembly on the Infoprint 4000 and Infoprint 4100 Models HS1, HD1/2, and PD1/2 provides you with a set of external contacts that allow you to hook up an alert signal.

The post accepts standard dual- or single-banana plugs, leads terminated with spade lugs, or stripped, bare-wire leads.

The recommended voltage for the posts is 12 V dc, at a maximum current of 5 amps.

Note:
There is an internal 5-amp fuse.

Voltage is not present at the binding post. Your company is responsible for supplying power to run any external device. The two contacts of the binding post are connected together with the closing of a relay contact. The relay turns on only when the operator alert lamp is operating during an error condition. To reset or turn off the relay, press the Check Reset switch on the operator panel of the affected printer.
