Cocktail Node

Switches & ledís

  • First a yellow led : SERVICE-led. Lights up when you push the service-switch. When this led flashes or is lit continuously, a severe software problem occured in the node. ( call us )
  • Second a red led : RECEIVE-led
  • Third a red led : TRANSMIT-led
  • Bottom a green led : lights up when power supply is ok.

At the connector-side youíll find :

  • A push-button switch : SERVICE-switch. This transmits the ID-number of the node.
  • A resettable thermal fuse : when this pops out, a little white flag is visible. After removing the problem, such as short circuit, push it back in to reset.

Connection :

There are two identical 6-way connectors at the right of the node. The left one may be used for connecting nodes who need 12V power supply, max 800mA such as reader or weight controllers . MAXIMUM 3 NODES TO SUPPLY. The right one is to connect the major network.

pin 1+12V (output)
pin 2GND
pin 3NC
pin 4Network A
pin 5Earth ( shielding )
pin 6Network B

The 12-way connector used for the inputs. The inputvoltage is 12 Vac.

The 36-way connector (nearest to the mounting flange) used for the inputs.

pin 1 - 8output 1 - 8
pin 10 - 17output 9 - 16
pin 19 - 26output 17 - 24
pin 9, 18, 27, 36common 24Vdc
pin 28 - 35common 24Vac

The 36-way connector (nearest to the front) used for bypassing the system.

When you plug in the cable with the input connector ( described above ) here, the system is bypassed.


Within the neuron program you can influence the behaviour of the node by setting different flags

If there are no beer pumps used, disable these inputs and put them on hold.


  • Pause : Must be set to 5
