InterfaceKit 8/8/8 1018

Postby drixtab » Wed Feb 15, 2012 11:59 am

I'm trying to use the 1018 IfKit to sense an alarm panel when it goes off. It has a hardwire interface that closes like a relay when the alarm goes off. I am assuming that these should be connected to the digital inputs. However, there is voltage on the the terminals themselves (12volts DC). Is it safe to connect it to the digital inputs then?

Thanks

The digital inputs on a 1018 have a maximum voltage of +/-15V. So 12V is not a problem.
