Universal Node or 32-8 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 outputs. The output voltage is 24 Vac.

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

pin 1, 10, 19, 28input 1 : dose 1, dose 2, dose 3, dose 4
pin 2, 11, 20, 29input 2 : dose 1, dose 2, dose 3, dose 4
pin 3, 12, 21, 30input 3 : dose 1, dose 2, dose 3, dose 4
pin 4, 13, 22, 31input 4 : dose 1, dose 2, dose 3, dose 4
pin 5, 14, 23, 32input 5 : dose 1, dose 2, dose 3, dose 4
pin 6, 15, 24, 33input 6 : dose 1, dose 2, dose 3, dose 4
pin 7, 16, 25, 34input 7 : dose 1, dose 2, dose 3, dose 4
pin 8, 17, 26, 35input 8 : dose 1, dose 2, dose 3, dose 4
pin 912Vdc common for input switches, must be connected with pin 18
pin 18detection auto/manual, must be connected with pin 9



The 36-way connector ( nearest to the front ) used for bypassing the system. If this connection is used, the software will create a log for every time the the system is bypassed.

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

pin 1 to 8 is internally routed directly to output 1 to 8
pin 9 and 18 is internally connected to 24Vac.
Only the switches connected to dose 1 will work in bypass mode.

Software

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

Flags:

  • MaxCount : maximum number of tap actions without resetting the input
  • Pause : time between two tap actions
  • Flags :
    • Between 1 and 8: maximum number of valves opened at the same time
    • 9: Handdouche (used for controlling Berg douche systems)
      • WARNING: Never put the 36-way connector in manual mode when using the 32-8 as a Handdouche device!
    • 10: Speedrail: 2 different amounts on 1 button
    • add 100: Freeflow possible with VIP (Firmware version 2.0 or up)
  • Wait : time between double tap

The calibration value when an input is configured as STOP:

  • Cal = 0: The input is a normal stop.
  • Cal = 1: The input is a Hold-Resume. When the input is active, the output is paused until the input gets deactivated. Now the tap action will continue.
  • Cal > 1: The input is a Stop-Start: on pressing, the tap action will stop. After pressing again, the tap action resumes with the set cal value for this STOP.

Warning

In the latest models of the 32-8 nodes is an triac print supplied that will be used when the 32-8 node is in manual mode. These triac modules can swith a current of maximum 1.5A. When using electric valves it's nececerry to remove this triac print.
