  • Risk of electric shock
  • Disconnect the power supply before making electrical connections. The printed circuit board and its components are at AC line voltage. Contact with components carrying hazardous voltage can cause electric shock and may result in personal injury or death.
  • Risque de décharge électrique.
  • Débrancher l'alimentation avant de réaliser tout raccordement électrique. Le circuit imprimé et ses composants présentent une tension CA. Tout contact avec des composants porteurs de tensions dangereuses risque d'entraîner une décharge électrique et de provoquer des blessures graves, voire mortelles.
  • Use the M4 x 8 crosshead terminal screws provided. Substitution of other screws voids the warranty and agency approvals.
  • Use copper conductors only. Make all wiring connections in accordance with local, national, and regional regulations. Do not exceed the device’s electrical ratings.

The terminals are color coded. Red is common. See the following figure for switch action.

Figure 1. F262 control switch action

On an installed switch, the circuit between the red and yellow terminals closes when the required airflow velocity is present within the duct.

When you connect an indicator light or signal to the blue terminal, the light or signal activates when the airflow decreases or ceases.
