2.1 Mounting Options
The cabinet may be semi-flush or surface mounted. The cabinet mounts using three key slots at the
top of the backbox and two additional 0.250" diameter holes located at the bottom.
Carefully unpack the system and check for shipping damage. Mount the cabinet in a clean, dry,
vibration-free area where extreme temperatures are not encountered. The area should be readily
accessible with sufficient room to easily install and maintain the panel. Locate the top of the cabinet
approximately five feet above the floor with the hinge mounting on the left. Determine the number
of conductors required for the devices to be installed. Sufficient knockouts are provided for wiring
convenience. Select the appropriate knockout(s) and pull the required conductors into the box. Note
that knockouts are also located on the back of the cabinet. All wiring should be in accordance with
the National and/or Local codes for fire alarm systems. Refer to Figure 2.4 for knockouts that can-
not be used.
