Re: Why does the 4050 80 no longer meet building codes?

Does anyone know if the pitch is adjustable to be lower or higher like the 2901-9138s? If so what needs to be done? I want make the pitch higher. I tried the volume screw and it didn’t help with the pitch. Any info would be very helpful! YouTube: Mrtruealert Fire Alarm Panel forums: Simplex4100Uguy

Re: Why does the 4050 80 no longer meet building codes?

What is the cathode end? Also does that only go on the positive end or negitive end in series or parallel where both the field wiring and the lap wiring and the diode wiring all come together in a total of 3 wires connected to a wire nut?

Also I’ve never worked with a 4050-80 and the wires, does black mean positive and white means negative like wiring in a hou...
