We sincerely appreciate the feedback.
Since the Config utility does not refer to actual hardware pins, we are curious as to where it says to manipulate specific pins. Please tell us. Also note that the input connector diagram in the quick-guide correctly shows the pin numbers and corresponding signal names.
Inputs 1 and 3 can be either pulled down (to ground) or pulled up (to +5V) depending on how you want the sensor connected. A dry-contact can be set up as either. If you want the contact closure to be an ON signal, place the resistor between the input and GND, and the contact between the input and +5. Conversely, if you want the contact closure to represent an OFF signal, place the resistor between the input and +5, and the contact between the input and GND. NOTE that on input 2 there is already a pull-up internally and a contact closure can only be connected to make the input OFF when the contact is closed.
We’ll update the quick-guide with a schematic of the above description.
Thanks for pointing out the spelling error. We’ll fix on the next revision.
We’ll also fix the missing leading zeros.
