[8PWR] Sockets and Indication Elements

GSM Slots

There are GSM ANT sockets on a front panel on the left to connect an external antenna and a SIM Card slot to install a SIM card.

LAN Sockets 

Ethernet 10/100 BASE-T port. A device has two such ports: one on a front panel and another one on a back panel. Together they form a dual port Ethernet-switch. One port is used for a network connection, another one is used for additional equipment connection (another NetPing device, administrator's laptop, etc.), which gives an opportunity to avoid installing of an additional switch on a remote site. The ports are equivalent, anyone can be used for a network connection.

Important! Connecting both ports to an Ethernet switch with a disabled STP protocol will cause to creation of a loop in an Ethernet segment.

The Ethernet ports have two LEDs. A left one is CPU, its glowing means that a device is turned on, its blinking means transferring packages to a network. A right one is Link, its lighting means having "link" on this port, its blinking means receiving packages from a network.

RS485 Socket

An RS485 socket is used to connect RS485 devices. An RS485 port can work in one of two modes: either as an RS485– Ethernet interface converter by a TCP protocol or in an electricity meter CE102 (Energy meter) protocol analysis mode. 

1W Sockets

1W sockets are used to plug sensors of a model line V4, which are built on a 1Wire technology.

Power Supply Channels Status Indication

On a front panel there are LEDs that indicate a status of the second group of power supply channels. Channels 5 - 8 are included into this group. A status of each channel is represented by a corresponding LED of an OUT group. A LED is glowing when there is a voltage on an output (a relay is closed).

220IN OB *A LED shows from what input the second group of channels is fed. A LED glows when a power supply is fed from an input A, which is located on a back panel of a device.

On a back panel there are LEDs that indicate a status of the first group of power supply channels. Channels 1 - 4 are included into this group. A status of each channel is represented by a corresponding LED of an OUT group.  A LED is glowing when there is a voltage on an output (a relay is closed).

220IN OA *B LED shows from what input the first group of channels is fed. A LED glows when a power supply is fed from an input B, which is located on a front panel of a device.

Power Supply Channels

On a front panel there is the second group of power supply channels, with numbers of channels 5 – 8.

On a back panel there is the first group of power supply channels, with numbers of channels 1 -4.

Power Supply Inputs

On a front panel there is a power supply input B.

On a back panel there is a power supply input A.

Sensor Plugin Terminals

On a back panel there is a terminal block for sensors plugin. Assignment of the terminals is from left to right: IO1, IO2, IO3, IO4, SC, SD, +5V, GND.

Reset Button

Reset button is located on a back panel of a device. It is designed to reset settings to default values. To reset settings, press the button Reset with a sharp object and hold it while turning on a device.
