CS2000 Installation Instructions For Common Line Receptacle Units
New Construction Only

Each CS2000 unit is individually wrapped in a box. Using a knife, carefully slit the box open, making sure that the blade of the knife extends no further than is necessary. Inside the box is the CS2000 unit wrapped in bubble pack. Remove the bubble pack.

Each CS2000 unit is factory set for specific room. Each unit has a dot over the row corresponding to the room number. The master, unit, which is always placed in Room #1 and is marked #1, is the unit from which all programming functions are accomplished.

A single dedicated common line receptacle is used for new construction installations. All the units are plugged into the same line. There is no limit on the amount of units that can plug into this line. A filter box is provided that is connected in series with the common dedicated line to the circuit breaker box. It is important to understand that both the HOT (black) and NEUTRAL (white) be connected in series with the line. Do not common the whites.

If optional outside monitor or SWITCH panels are used, please see separate technical specification,
CS2000 Installation Of Optional Outside Panel Or Switch Panel.

Back boxes and cables for optional panels are provided by Varitronics. See diagram below for recommended mounting distances. Single gang back boxes are provided by others. These boxes are usually placed behind the CS2000 unit. For exact placement of single gang boxes please contact the architect or administrator.
