Flow Lock

Ledís :

On the frontpanel youíll find :

  • A yellow led : State of output
  • A green led : Power

The 4-way connector
Enable the outputs

The 6-way connector Power connection. WARNING: The contacts can handle currents of 8A max.

The 36-way connector.

Example to connect multiple FlowLock nodes to one MegaFlow

Settings

Hold Current (switch SW1):

  • 1: Hold current is 10% of inruch current
  • 2: Hold current is 20% of inruch current
  • 3: Hold current is 30% of inruch current
  • ...
  • 9: Hold current is 90% of inruch current
  • 0: Hold current is 100% of inruch current

Example: The valve inrush voltage = 12V DC, when the Hold current is set to 60% (6) then the hold current will be 7.2V

Valve power setting (jumper S1):

A: All outputs are set to the hold current setting.

B: The power on the outputs will rise slowly to max, then the power goes to the hold current.

C: The power on the outputs will rise directly to max, then the power goes to the hold current.

Valve open sequence (jumper S2):

1: All outputs are set sequently.

2: outputs 1 to 4 are set at once, followed by outputs 5 to 8.

3: All outputs are set at once (watch out for overcurrent!).

 Power consumption: 9W 
 Hold current: 60% ==> set FlowLock node on Hold Current 6 
 DC Input voltage: 12V



 Power consumption: 8W
 Hold current: 60% ==> set FlowLock node on Hold Current 6 
 DC Input voltage: 24V
