Understood, but then the relay would only have 6 VDC for the coil if/when the Simon is using battery power.

I believe I have painted myself into a corner here! The Simon XT has this:

HW1 DC- (Alarm Circuit -or- Siren Power)
HW1/HW2 DC+ (6 VDC battery -or- 12 VDC on AC power)
HW2 DC- (Alarm Circuit)

Understood, and I thank you. I have tried an 100-ohm, 1/2-watt resistor I happened to have lying around and that works with the triggered voltage showing 11.7 VDC with no other load attached. I...

Question about Simon XT hardwired (HW1) siren supervision

I have my Simon XT HW1 function set to "5 = alarm output activated when panel is in alarm" because that gives me continuous voltage (rather than pulse) during an alarm, and that is what I want for...

Update:

Since the turn signals on my bus are separate from its brake lights, I have installed an in-line 5-to-4 converter that has a typical 4-flat connector at the hitch on the bus. One of the...

Even though what you want to do would likely be fine as long as neither 120 line is doing anything else while the T/S is running, the 240 circuit to the saw is supposed to provide only 240. If you...
