8.4.3 Connecting the Loop Wiring to the Panel
When the loop wiring has been checked and found to be
satisfactory, do the following:
1 Remove the temporary links on the isolator units (OPAL
2 Connect the loop wiring to the panel. Ensure that the
8.4.4 Loop Checks After Connecting Wiring
When the loop wiring has been connected, do the following:
1 Re-connect the mains power - NEVER connect the
2 Check the LCD for indications of any faults. Refer to
Appendix 3 of this manual or the LBC for OPAL device
types fitted with internal isolators. The following tests
should then be carried out using a multimeter.

resistance but this should increase as the capacitor in
each of the loop devices charges. If the meter indicates
the presence of a forward-biased diode then it is
probable that one or more of the loop devices is
connected in reversed polarity or the wiring is crossed.
