I guess I’m more concerned about it kicking on after a power outage or something @ the right speed. Maybe I’m over thinking.Most people will keep the pumps and skimmers running at a constant speed. So I would put Skimmer in one stream group and the other in another stream group.
This would allow you then to adjust the overall speed of each one, but adding feed modes to the skimmer stream group so if you want it to slow down or turn off.
Are you worried you may set the setting to low? If so adjust the overall 1-10V port with a min voltage and it will never go below that.
Yes, if you use one of the new break out boxes, the cord it comes with connects to the L1/L2 port. It includes the wiring to connect 2 separate 0-10V devices. A second break out box connected to the L3/L4 port gives you the ability to wire in 2 more.i was under the impression they are like the other sensor ports that they can split them right? So for example if I have 2 devices I’ll be on L1/L2 and L3/L4. Then if I added another one I could use the L1 spot and split it to l1 and l2?
I currently have mine set up with 2 pumps on the new breakout box (2 varios 2). Are you saying instead of using both of the rjxx cables ( little cable that goes into breakout box; I can just use one? I currently use both and one is plugged into l1/l2 and the other is l3/l4. I can switch it to say one connection? Just l1/l2 and rename my l3 as l2?Yes, if you use one of the new break out boxes, the cord it comes with connects to the L1/L2 port. It includes the wiring to connect 2 separate 0-10V devices. A second break out box connected to the L3/L4 port gives you the ability to wire in 2 more.
This is how I did mineEach of the new break out boxes can control 4 0-10v pumps. The cord for L1/L2 controlles a pump connected to wires 2 and 3 like you see here. That is L1. L2 would be wired to 5 and 6. Then, you make a connection to the other port to L3/L4. L3 would controller what is wired to the currently empty 2 and 3. L4 would control what would be wired into that 5 and 6.
Oh wait ! That was an old pic. It’s the same way except the black is next to the red (ground)Umm... hate to say it but that isn't good. You won't get proper speed control.
Whew!Oh wait ! That was an old pic. It’s the same way except the black is next to the red (ground)
my pumps are working fine for speed and whatnot. Actually really impressed! Just was unsure if I could say unplug one of the little “Phone jacks” and then use just one for l1/l2 rather than how I got it set up now 1 pump on l1 and one on l3
So you could move the 2nd pumps wiring to red on 5 and black on 6. Then a single phone cord would to L1 and L2 for those pumps. That would free up the other terminal block and cord plug for 2 future pumps.
Always an option! L2 and L4 will be terminals 5 and 6 in that box so easy to do that way.lol okay.
Or I can wait till I get another controllable pump and wire that one in!! (Despised trying to get the little wires striped and in the holes!
Can you clarify where all these terminals are? I only see I think 4 0-10v inputs?Always an option! L2 and L4 will be terminals 5 and 6 in that box so easy to do that way.
And I agree, the terminal strip isn't user friendly. I tinned my wires with solder to make them easy to install but that isn't something everyone can or would want to do.
I'll take a meter to it tomorrow and find out but I have my gyres wired in that way and it seems to work. Of course, it would also work to do it the way you suggest since ground is ground. I'm just fairly sure that pin 6 also is a ground.I think this is wrong too. GND is number three for both channels. L1 red (+) in 2, black (-) in 3, L2 red (+) in 5 - black (-) in 3.
I'm glad you pointed this out, Lasse.It is for a relay that should shout down the power for old LED and 1-10 V T5 fixtures. They could not be regelated lower than around 5 %.
