Scantronic v CQR multibox STD wiring?

Hi I was here a few weeks ago and had some great advice regarding my old clapped out Optima control unit.Since then I have purchased a new scantronic 9448 plus that is now installed and testing ok but I have not yet managed to wire it to my Taurus CQR multibox bell and strobe unit.I dont know how to wire the two together so I am asking for help.I think mando and gts helped me last time so I am hoping these chaps are still around and willing to help.Thank you to all.

That is great thanks,i did not fit the sounder it was here already.I had wrote the terminals down and was about to put on here as it may of helped but no need now.Thanks e manno and gts for approving.

spot on e manno,the multibox is our standard unit,

Taurus is just the style of cover in case you didn't know.

I'm assuming you have linked out OV-TR at the 9448 to test and use without SAB connected?,

Anyway great choice of panel and sounder,it would be nice for us to use the multibox again but that's a long story so :

cqr ......scanny 9448+


TRIG to Bell

HOLD - to 0V

HOLD + to 12v+


Wire the sounder first then make the connections at the panel.

Be safe and don't forget to remove that OV/TR link :)
