11. Please inform us the power supply specification of FaceStation F2.

Please refer to the following descriptions in FaceStation F2 Installation Guide.,

•Use a power supply adapter of DC 24 V or DC 12 V (± 10%) with a minimum of 2,500 mA which has obtained the approval of IEC/EN 60950-1. If you wish to connect and use another device to the power supply adapter, you should use an adapter with a current capacity which is the same or larger than the total power consumption required for the terminal and another device.

• Use a separate power supply for Secure I/O 2, the electric lock, and the product respectively. If connecting and using the power supply to these devices together, the devices may malfunction.

• When connecting the power supply, be aware of the distance between FaceStation F2 and the power supply. The FaceStation F2 should be connected as close as possible to the power supply so that the length of the connecting cable is kept to a minimum. If cable connections are made improperly it may cause the device to malfunction. It is recommended to use a 16 AWG or 18 AWG cable if the FaceStation F2 is far from the power supply. The connection distance may differ depending on the standard of the cable used and the installation environment. FaceStation F2 supports both DC 24 V and DC 12 V power, so check the maximum length according to the cable specification to ensure that the unit is properly powered.

• DO NOT extend the length of power cable when using the power adapter (DC 24 V (± 10%), 2.5A).

• DO NOT use the CAT5 UTP 2-Wire for power supply purpose.
