How to set up Allen Bradley Beacon Light?

Hello all, we are a new team and don't know exactly how to wire the beacon light that we are required to have. I'm sure its quite simple but we can't seem to find instructions. Thanks in advance!

See this diagram. (It's old, but it works.)

Connect La and Lb to RSL+, connect N to RSL-. The RSL+ and RSL- terminals are on the digital sidecars.

Make sure the digital sidecar is hooked up to 12 V. I was mad when I had it in 5V slot and got it to work recently.

Happy competitions and good luck!

Re: How to set up Allen Bradley Beacon Light?

Alright well we kind of had to rig a system together using the spare wire we had laying around. Does anyone know if there is a specific wire that we are supposed to use or are we just supposed to make it work?
