The terminals LC, LNO, and LNC on the TB2 terminal block connect to an SPDT dry-contact relay in the A421 Control (Figure 1). The control does not provide any internal power to the TB2 terminals or relay contacts. The A421 Control energizes and de-energizes the relay to open and close the contacts based on the On/OFF temperature values.

  • Relay De-energized (Off) = LC open to LNO as shown in Figure 1, and the relay status LED is off
  • Relay Energized (On) = LC closed to LNO and the relay status LED is on

Figure 2 shows how to wire the A421 Control to use the same power source that powers the controlled equipment to also power the A421 Control.

You can also provide an independent power source for the A421 Control on the TB1 terminals and then wire the TB2 relay terminals to a separate power source to switch and power the controlled equipment circuit.

120 V Line-voltage 120 VAC control power (hot): Connect the 120 VAC supply power (hot) for 120 VAC supply power applications through the jumper from LC. (Figure 2).
240 V Line-voltage 240 VAC control power (L2) terminal: Connect the L2 supply power connection for 208/240 VAC supply power applications through the jumper from LC. (Figure 2).
TB2 LC Line-voltage SPDT relay common contact: Connects power supply to power the controlled load. Connect 24 VAC (hot) for 24 VAC applications; 120 VAC (hot) for 120 VAC applications’ and L2 for 208/240 VAC applications.

LNO Line-voltage SPDT relay normally open contact: Connects controlled equipment to the line-voltage normally open (LNO) contact on the SPDT relay. When LC is closed to LNO, the relay is energized and the green LED is on. The LNO terminal typically provides power to the controlled equipment in cooling and heating applications.
LNC Line-voltage SPDT relay normally closed contact: Connects controlled equipment to the line-voltage normally closed (LNC) contact on the SPDT relay. When LC is closed to LNC, the relay is de-energized and the green LED is off. The LNC terminal is not typically wired to the controlled equipment.
TB3 BIN Detects a switch closure between the BIN and COM terminals and enables the selected temperature setback (tSb) value. 22 AWG (0.34 mm²) stranded, shielded cable
COM Connects the low-voltage common from the sensor and binary input.
SEN Connects the low-voltage input signal wire from control sensors.
