How to Wire the Qolsys IQ Power Transformer?


Hey everybody Geoarm Security here with today I’m going to show you how to wire the Qolsys IQ panel so the first step is we’re going to take
our Qolsys system turn it on its side and we will notice the screw on the top it’s righty tighty lefty loosey all right you’ll see the screws ready to
come out so we have that will make sure we keep the screw closed by then we can
go ahead and pop this top off should pop off pretty easy for you alright so now that we have the Qolsys system opened I want to show you we have the 22 gauge
by two wire and we have two different ends you’ll notice each one is set up a
little bit differently we have this one which is hook this was going to be going
to the transformer this one has a lot less copper exposed
which will be going into the back of the Qolsys panel all right we’ll start by wiring the back
of the panel first so you want to take your mounting bracket as if it was on
the wall like this you want to make sure the wires are running behind it and runs
behind the mounting bracket put that to the side for now all right now we’re going to get these
wires into our panel and i want to show you really fast i would like to show you the DC in plus
and DC and – these last two terminals this is where the wires are going to be
of wired into alright so i am going to go ahead and wire the red wire first
which is the positive which will be the terminal all the way to the right DC and plus so you’ll see there’s very
minimal copper exposed i do that on purpose so that when you put this wire
into the terminal no copper is exposed so we’ll go ahead
and screw that in you don’t want to screw too tight because these are plastic terminals with
metal screws now i’m going to wire the dc in – which
is your ground and you put that into the terminal directly next to it go ahead and screw that in not too tight it was a nice little tug alright so now
you can bring your mounting bracket that should clip right it now that we have a completely clipped in we’re going to take our screw and it’s
righty tighty lefty loosey so we’re going right tighten that up alright so now your panel is wired alright so now we’re going to go ahead
and wire the power transformer end and just to show you some quick information you’ll
see that on the left of the screw of each screw there’s a positive and a
negative so make sure you locate that know where they are so you can work with
the polarity all right now you see we have the 22
gauge wire the opposite end and we have the transformer you’ll notice on the left side it says
plus on the right side it says – so we’re going to take our red wire and
make that go around the positive side go ahead and screw that in not too tight now we’ll take the
negative end that around the end screw it as well give it a nice little
tug verify that you have the red the plus with the plus and the black with
the – which is the negative and that’s How you wire the qolsys iq panel for power
