Using the Motion Sensor 360 - Volt Free with TapHome systems
TapHome is a Slovakian made control system that takes care of a homes lighting, heating, ventilation, shading, alarms, intercom and virtually all other elements of control. The range of hardware available from TapHome is vast, with hardware for lighting control, digital inputs, analogue inputs, temperature sensors, wind speed, CO2, rain and much more.
TapHome have a network of installers across Europe installing amazing smart home systems. As the Taphome system has a number of suitable devices that can be used to integrate our Motion Sensor 360 - Volt free we will look at how that is achieved in this blog and show the wiring for two popular TapHome devices: the 24UI and the 2UI.
Lets start with the DIN rail mounted 24 UI module…
Taphome 24 UI
TapHome 24 UI module has 24 universal inputs that can be used for a number of sensor applications, and in this instance they make a great solution for users looking to integrate our Motion Sensor 360 - Volt Free.
Using the 24V + and GND terminals that are present on each of the phoenix terminals, power the sensor across the 24V ‘+’ and ‘-’ terminals. We also need to use the 24V ‘+’ to connect to one side of the motion sensor relay output.
Using another core of the sensor cable connect the other side of the relay output back to the 24UI input required. In this diagram we are using UI1.
The 2UI module is a bus based input module to allow the system inputs to be installed at various locations around the building to reduce wiring and simplify installation in some scenarios.
As there are 2 inputs on the 2UI, technically 2 of the Faradite Motion Sensor 360 - Volt Free sensors can be connected to a single unit. In the diagram below we show the sensor wired to UI1.
Using the ‘24V’ and ‘GND’ terminals, power the sensor across the ‘+’ and ‘-’ terminals. Again, also connect the 24V ‘+’ to one side of the relay output of the sensor. Using a separate core, connect the other side of the relay output terminal to the input on the UI2. In the diagram we have connected to UI1.
Now the motion sensor is connected to the TapHome inputs, they are ready to be commissioned. Remember the output relay on the Motion Sensor 360 - Volt Free will close for the duration of motion plus approx 1 second so all timeouts must be commissioned in the TapHome app.
Be sure to configure the input type in the TapHome app when setting the system up. More information can be found here.
We hope you found this guide useful, and if you have any questions about using our sensors with TapHome or any other control system please do not hesitate to contact the Faradite team.
