The connections between your Infinitybox system and your E-Stopp controller are very simple. Their controller needs a signal that lets it know if the ignition is on. If the ignition is on, their controller will not let you engage or disengage the emergency brake. This is a very important safety feature. This picture shows the connection between the Infinitybox ignition output and the Blue “Safety to Ignition” wire going to the E-Stopp controller.
You can get this ignition signal from the Ignition output on your Infinitybox system. In most systems, this output 3, which is the light green output on the front POWERCELL. Please check your specific configuration sheet that came with your Infinitybox kit. You are going tap off your ignition output to get this safety signal. Your ignition output is also powering you coil, ECU, EFI system, gauges and other key-on accessories. You can simply splice into this wire to connect it to the E-Stopp. You can also use our Splice Saver Kit to make this connection. This picture shows you how you’d make this connection with the Splice Saver.
