PNP 4-wire example:

(see attachments for photo)

Brown to C0+

Blue to C0-

White to the input (such as X1, X2, or X3...) (this is normally closed which is preferred method.  Black can be used for normally open).

If the switches are not functioning or not reading in remove the proxy switch and place a jumper wire between C0+ and the input (such as X1, X2 or X3..). If the LED on the Apollo board lights up than it is an issue with the proxy switch.
