OK - I've searched the forums and read the user guides but i must be missing something...

How do i set up the i/o linc to trigger the ELK-924? I have the power leads from the i/o linc hooked up to power terminals on the ELK-924 but i am unclear on how to wire the "trigger terminals".

How do I do this?

Thanks in advance for your help.

You are trying to use the I/O Linc's +5 volt 10 ma power supply to run an ELK-924?
It will not power the relay board.
It needs 12 or 24 volts at a minimum of 60 ma when both relays are on.
If you power it with an external 12 volt supply you can use the I/O Linc's +5 volts through its relay contacts to trigger the ELK-924. Or you could use the external 12 volt supply for the ELK-924 and switch it into one of the trigger inputs thorough the I/O Linc's relay contacts. Only one of the two trigger inputs has to be used. Depends on what the trigger voltage and polarity is.

Hey- What exactly are you trying to do? I actually wound up going with a different option than the ELK-924 that worked for my application better...

Sorry mdyod. i'm just would like to get a circuit diagram to build up a converter, which can trigger from my IP camera I/O output to the 12Vdc Siren. The output value it's only +5Vdc, but it can't voice up the 12Vdc Siren as well. So i need the converter to run the 12Vdc Siren. Any suggestion mdyod? Can give a help pls?

Do you have a 12 volt power source and 12 volt siren?
That you need to be triggered by a 5 volts source or are you attempting to use a DC to DC converter?
If you are trying to up convert 5 volts to 12 volts with enough current to drive the 12 volt siren. It is going to need a very heavy current on the 5 volt source.
