TSP-40A Cable Kit for FireFinder-XLS
The Model TSP-XC Cable Kit from Siemens Industry, Inc., is used to wire TSP-40A
printers to FireFinder-XLS Systems. The two cables in the TSP-XC kit replace the
cables (P/Ns 600-290606 and 600-290607) that are shipped with the TSP-40A.
For additional information on the FireFinder-XLS System, refer to the FireFinder-XLS
Control Panel Installation, Operation and Maintenance Manual, P/N 315-033744. For
information on installing the TSP-40A in a FireFinder-XLS System, refer to installation
instructions, P/N 315-049949.
Installation of the TSP-40A in a FireFinder-XLS System requires the following kits:
TSP-40A Printer Module
TSP-XB U-Shaped Bracket and Front Plate
TSP-XC Cable Kit
The TSP-40A printer modules comes with two cables, P/N 600-290607 and P/N 600-
290606. These cables are used only in MXL/MXLV System installations. The two
cables used in FireFinder-XLS Systems installations—a two-conductor power cable
and a data cable—are contained in the TSP-XC cable kit, P/N 500-849950.
The two-conductor power cable has a plug on one end that connects to P1 on the
TSP-40A. The power cable is provided at a length of 5 feet. Cut the wire to the length
needed and strip the insulation from the end of the wire 1/4" - 3/8" . The wired end
connects to the terminals on TB-4 of the PSC-12 or PSX-12, with the red wire going
to the positive (+) terminal and the black wire going to the negative (-) terminal.
The data (ribbon) cable connects to P3 on the TSP-40A and to either JP4 on the back
of the PMI (note that the silk screen on the PMI indicates NIM-1M) or to J13 on the
back of the PMI-2 (note that the silk screen on the PMI-2 indicates TSP-40A). Both
ends of the data cable have the same keyed plug that fits only one way onto the
Refer to Figure 1 for the location of the terminals on the TSP-40A, Figure 2 for the
location of the connection to JP4 on the back of the PMI and Figure 3 for the location
of the connection to J13 on the back on the PMI-2.
