Style Z (Class A) Input/Output NAC Wiring
Figure 2-9 shows how to wire for Style Z (Class A) input and output supervision. Use in/out wiring
methods for proper supervision.
Style Z (Class A) Output Notification Circuits
The configuration shown in Figure 2-9 shows two, 3-amp devices wired as Style Z (Class A) circuits.
When you are using the outputs as Style Z (Class A) circuits, loop the wiring back to the corresponding
circuit pair. For Style Z (Class A) wiring, no external EOL is necessary since it is built into the board.
Style Z (Class A) Supervised Input Circuits
The configuration shown in Figure 2-9 shows Style Z (Class A) supervised wiring from a fire alarm control
unit to the PAD-3 board. Pay close attention to the polarities when wiring the unit and follow these
When wiring to terminal 2 and 5 on TB2, you must use two separate wires. Do not loop a single wire or
twist two conductor wires together.
Do not use notification appliances on Style Z (Class A) circuits connected for input. The PAD-3 will detect
voltage across the input circuits, but is not designed to pass the added current load from notification
16-33VDC / VFW
BY FIRE ALARM
For system supervision,
DO NOT USE LOOPED WIRE
UNDER TERMINALS for terminal
2 and 5. Break wire run to provide
supervision of connections.
