Features

Built-in Dual Diodes

  • Provides ON / OFF signals; negative pulse turns relay ON, positive pulse turns relay OFF.
  • Using diode allows AC signal to be rectified to turn relay ON or OFF.
  • Diodes act as gate for the switch signal in series with the relay coil.

Low Voltage Terminals

4 Relays Per Switch

LED built-in diodes

  • LED provides ON / OFF indicator.
  • Max. 6 LED switches connected at one time.

Compatible with all MPL-XXR and MPL-XXU models

Manual Control Lever

  • Permits non-electrical method of switching and status check at the panel, especially during installation.
