Input Node or 24-4 Node

Switches & ledís :

On the frontpanel youíll find :

  • A push-button switch : SERVICE-switch. This transmits the ID-number of the node.
  • 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 occurred in the node. ( call us )
  • A red led : TRANSMIT-led
  • A second red led : RECEIVE-led

The 4-way connector
Not used

The 6-way connector

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

The 12V can be obtained from nodes with these outputs, such as pneumatic beer valve controller or post-mix controller, or from a separate supply.

The 36-way connector.

pin 27, 36GND
pin 28-29NO contact 1
pin 30-31NO contact 2
pin 32-33NO contact 3 / NC contact when flags = 2
pin 34-35NO contact 4 / NC contact when flags = 2

Contact 1 to 4 are closed simultaneously when a valid card is in the reader. These contact are electrical independent so they can enable maximum 4 different machines.



  • 1: All inputs work inverted.
  • 2: Output 3 and 4 work inverted (NC).
  • 3: Combination of flag 1 and 2.
  • 4: Engolit non-drip (max 8 connections):
    • Line 1-4-7-10-13-16-19 and 22 are the inputs
    • Line 2-5-8-11-14-17-20 and 23 detects that the Engolit non-drip is present.
    • Line 3-6-9-12-15-18-21 and 24 detects that the Engolit non-drip is removed.
  • 5: Inverted Engolit non-drip.
  • 6: Debit-Credit: output becomes active (for 500ms) after receiving a pulse on the input.
  • 7: Inverted Debit-Credit: same like flag 6, but the inputs and output 3 and 4 are inverted.
  • 8: Tourniquet: output stays 1s active after recognition of a valid card in the reader.
  • 9: Binary: the 24-in reads the 5 first inputs as binary and makes from this combination a product number. ex: input 1, 2 and 5 are active: this gives the binary number: '10011' and resembles product 19. If the number outruns the 24 the input is rejected.
  • 10: Inverted Binary: same like flag 9, but the inputs and output 3 and 4 are inverted.
  • 11: Debit-Credit Binary: combination of flag 6 and 9.
  • 12: Inverted Debit-Credit Binary: combination of flag 7 and 10.
  • 13: Freeflow count: 24-in will count the time an input is active. There will only bee a tap action when the flow counter exceeds the calibration value. The rest of the flow counter will be buffered.
  • Not set: Normal functioning of the 24-in


  • In 24-in nodes with software version 1.9 or higher there is a support for Credit cards in Debit-Credit mode (Make sure you use Dino version 22.93 or higher)
  • Flags 9 to 12 are only possible in 24-in nodes with software version 2.0 or higher.
  • Flag 13 is only supported in 24-in nodes with software version 2.1 or higher. (Make sure you use Dino version 28.30 or higher)

Setting Credit mode in Dino:

  • If you don't want the costumer to go below zero on his account, uncheck the 'N32Vip' in the Dino settings!
  • Give the product a price.
