  • 35mm DIN
  • Holes for wires mounting

  • Diameter 2,9mm.
  • Distance between holes 5mm.
  • PowerAnt types

  • SwSw - 14 switches
  • SwSe - 8 switches + 6 sensors
  • SeSe - 14 sensors
  • Cables

  • Ushided twisted pair 5 cat. (UTP cat.5).
  • 4 wires phone cord
  • RJ45, RJ12 connectors
  • Maximun network lengthPowerAnt

  • Less than 30m
  • Maximum PowerAnt on one line
  • Standard: 7
  • No additional supply: 12
  • Computer interface

  • RS-232, BaseStation required (not Ethernet)
  • Indication

  • Power suppy (green lamp)
  • For each switch (green or yellow lamp)
  • For each sensor (red lamp)
  • Commands execution speed

  • On/Off one switch: max 130 commands/sec
  • Sensors query: max 130 commands/sec
  • Addressing

  • No addressing (1 device)
  • Numeric addressing: near 0-999
  • AlpaNumeric addressing: near 200000 devices
  • Addressing with routing (for wireless communication)
  • Power suppy of PowerAnt

  • From base station
  • Voltage: +5В.
  • Maximum current for SwSw: 85mA.
  • Maximum current for SwSe: 55mA.
  • Maximum current for SeSe: 20mA.
  • Additional power suply for PowerAnt

  • From base station, optional
  • Separate for each switches group (ABCD, EFGH, IJK, LMN).
  • Voltage: max +60V.
  • Maximum current: 0,5A.
  • Sensors

  • Principle of operation: closure / breaking of contacts
  • KLMN sensors may be used as ADC (Analog To Digital convertor), if PowerAnt has adc version of firmware. ADC Conversion can detect from 0 to 5V by 0-1023 steps.
  • High speed reversive counter (firmware version c)

  • Maximum counter value: 255 (0xFF)
  • Siensivity: 80E-6 sec.
  • Decrement on front and rear of sensor signal
  • Change some switches state when counter arrives value 0
  • Support sensors: I, J, K ,L, M, N.
  • Watchdog counter for PC (firmware version r20, SwSe)

  • Change some switches state when counter arrives value 0, and computer till this time do not send any command to PowerAnt
  • Maximum counter value: 255 (0xFF), from 39,5sec to ~10072sec
  • Switch in/off time: 2,5-3 sec.
  • Support switches: A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H.
  • Jumpers for optocoupler mode selecting

  • 4 pins - select optocoupler mode
  • 3 pins - select power supply mode of the swith group
  • Switches optocoupler working modes

  • Closure / breaking of the switch contacts
  • Feed of power supply on contacts of the switch
  • Execution of switches

    Execution Voltage Polarity Maximum current Special
    No optocoupler DC +5В Strict 20mA Microcontroller pin direct connection. Not recommended.
    With optocoupler DC +5В/additional power DC supply up to +60V/external power DC supply up to +60V Strict 50mA For switch groups ABCD, EFGH, IJK, LMN you can separatly select power supply, yellow led, yellow terminal-block color
    With optocoupler 100+ AC/DC up to 230V - 130mA For switch groups ABCD, EFGH, IJK, LMN you can separatly select power supply, yellow led, orange terminal-block color
    With supet optocoupler AC 115-220V - 1А (to 200W) Works with AC power supples, green led, green terminal-block color
