Wiring a Simon 3 (Where do the red & black wires go?)

So I had to take my Simon 3 control panerl off the wall and move it to another wall. I took pictures of the wire hook ups, but turns out I took bad photos. I am having trouble figuring out where the red and black wires go to. On the bottom of the panel there are 5 wire terminals, 2 say AC, but I dont know which one is red and which one is black. The order of the terminals are: HWIN1, DCOUT, HWIN2, AC,AC. I just dont want to hook them up wrong and fry the system.

If you are talking about the wires for the AC power supply, it doesn't matter. The output of the wall transformer is AC, and has no polarity. Most people just wire red to the left and black to the right out of habit.
