What’s in the box?
1 Long-Range Controller
24 Plug-in Screw Terminals (each receiver comes with 2 plug-in screw terminals)
Please, note that no rack-mounting accessories are included in the box, so if you need them, please purchase the required accessories. The purchase codes are:
- PPHW0004R06 - Long Range - Single controller Rack Mount. To mount a single controller in a rack shelf.
- PPHW0004R07 - Long Range - Dual controller Rack Mount. To mount two controllers in a rack shelf.
The Long-Range Controller comes with three indicator LEDs, one reset button, and one test button
The controller has 8 independent outlets that send information through RS-485 protocol. To do so, each terminal contains A, B, and SCR pins and connectors. Its signal has to be wired individually (point to point) to one Long-Range receiver.
It is recommended to use 1 pair of shielded twisted pair wire of 24 AWG to communicate the Long-Range with the receivers.
Power over Ethernet ( PoE )
The controller is powered through Standard PoE Ethernet 10/100 Mbps port. The device is 802.3af compliant, so it can work with any switch or PoE adapter that matches with the referred standard.
If more than one Long-Range controller is used, it is recommended that the link between the node and the switch that distributes the information to each Long-Range has 100/1000 Mbps (Gigabit) connection speed.
A USB Micro port for firmware updates is also available at the rear side of the controller.
