DescriptionUsing the DPG1000ADA and DPG1000DAR Alarm Outputs Normal (Fail-safe) vs. Reverse Action—The convention for alarm action is that with the normal or fail-safe configuration, the alarm output relays will be CLOSED (relay energized) for a clear or non-alarm condition and OPEN (relay not energized) for an alarm condition. This is primarily for users who require an alarm condition if the gauge loses power or suffers a catastrophic failure. In the wiring diagrams, the normally closed and normally open designations refer to standard relay terminology (i.e., the relay contact status with the relay coil not energized). Therefore, with the normal (fail-safe) configuration in a green or non-alarm condition, the relay will be energized so that continuity can be expected between the common and normally open leads. In a red or alarm condition, the relay will be open (not energized) so that continuity can be expected between the common and normally closed leads.
