Hello everyone,
yesterday I struggled for the whole day trying to get to work an elevator recall.
I have a dry contactor that I wired at the polarity terminals + and - from the aux power terminal at the facp which I programmed as resettable. I have a 4 wire smoke as kentww sugested but the elevator is recalled only when I reset the facp. CRM another member said to use the alarm NO contact at the facp, but this does not give me I A. I talked to system sensor reps and they say I need asmoke base which include a relay. How this base would work any different than te dry contactor.

any ideas? help is greatly appreciated.

thanks to all again.
