Supporting up to 63 wireless zones, the LYNX Touch L5100 all-in-one control panel and keypad leaves little to be desired. However, the one thing some users want is additional outputs. That's where the trigger output comes in. There's a screw terminal inside the L5100 panel that is designed specifically for a negative 3 mA trigger. Most often, this trigger is used to wire Honeywell alarm sirens.
Sirens require more power output than the LYNX Touch has available. To get around this, many users opt for connecting an auxiliary power supply through the use of the 5800RL wireless relay module. You can also use the Altronix RBSNTTL ultra sensitive relay.
Here's how to wire the 3 mA output trigger...
Connect the L5100's "TRG" terminal to Altronix relay terminal "TRG" using a wire.
Connect the L5100's "GND" terminal to Altronix relay terminal "NEG" using a wire.
Connect the Altronix relay's "POS +" terminal to the Altronix relay's "TRG +" terminal using a jumper wire.
Now the L5100 is able to connect to an auxiliary power supply, which will support more alarm sirens.
After wiring the power supply and sirens, open the L5100 programming menu, choose a trigger action (Permanent On) followed by a start event (Any Burglary Alarm) and a stop event (Bell Timeout). This setup makes it possible for the LYNX Touch to trigger the alarm sirens when in alarm mode.
