How to Wire the J4 Trouble Output Properly

Posted by Lee Dubé | About the Author on Apr 6, 2017 12:27:02 PM


The Purpose and Proper Use of the J4 Output

Today’s blog is not intended to be overly technical.  The intent is to raise awareness of the J4 output on subscriber units; it purpose and proper use.  J4 is the output connector for the Form C Fail Secure Antenna Cut / Acknowledge Delay Relay / Low Battery / Charger Fail located on the subscriber circuit board. The subscriber will engage this relay for normal operation. It will be disengaged for one or more of the following reasons:

  • antenna cut
  • communication troubles or Acknowledge Delays (Ack Delay)
  • low battery
  • charger fault
  • Loss of power
    • Loss of AC, Beginning with Rev 2.64ZI of 7788F and 7744F, disabled by default
      • Note: AC failure does not report from J4, except on 7788F/7744F Rev 2.64Zi + if enabled
  • A pushbutton, remote or watchdog reset which causes the routing table to be deleted, resulting in the Subscriber not being on the network
