hi,
Link terminals 3 and 4 together, connect a DMM set for resistance/ohms across terminals 5 and 6.

You dont get a voltge output its just a contact.

The tamper wire is usually a loop of wire around the area you want to cover, if its cut the 5/6 contacts should close.

If you want a voltage on term 5 and 6 use an additional external battery.

Is this clear.?
