Adding a Secondary Power Supply

ADDING A SECONDARY POWER SUPPLY

Adding an Auxiliary Power Supply

  • The power supply has NO BRAIN, so data must be used from the main controller
  • You will never use ports 2, 3 and 4 on a power supply

Connecting the Auxiliary Power Supply to the Controller

  • Install the power supply on the wall near the controller
  • –Preferably to the right or the left of the controller ¾ to 2 inches away
  • –It can be installed vertically above or below but it is not preferred
  • There are 2 smaller ports on the upper right corner of the wire board
  • –The port on the far right is the auxiliary power supply port and has 4 screw terminals
  • —-2 terminals are Relay RTN and 2 are 12V
  • The second from the right port has 3 screw terminals and is the sensor port
  • –GND, Sensor, and 12V
  • Connect one of the 12V screw terminals of the auxiliary power supply port on the power supply to the same 12V screw terminal on the controller with a 16 gauge stranded wire
  • Connect one of the Relay RTN screw terminals of the auxiliary power supply port on the power supply to the same screw terminal on the controller with a 16 gauge stranded wire
  • Connect GND screw terminal of the sensor port of the power supply to the same screw terminal of the controller with 16 gauge stranded wire

Connecting the Lead Wire to an Auxiliary Power Supply

  • Connect your data wires in the controller based on lead wire length
  • –Look at tables above
  • Instead of connecting the power and ground wires into the controller, connect them to the power supply
  • –Screw terminal #1 is ground
  • –Screw terminal #5 is power
  • For example: For short and mid range, connect the ground wires (black and green) to screw terminal #1 in the power supply instead of screw terminal #1 in the controller and the power wire (red) to screw terminal #5 in the power supply instead of screw terminal #5 in the controller
  • Note: If the lead wire is long range, the black wire will be plugged into the power supply, but the green wire will still be in the controller as a data- wire
