Using the Motion Sensor 360 - Volt Free with Teletask systems

The Teletask home automation solution is a belgian designed system that has been offering customers control of their building for over 30 years. The Teletask system is designed to handle automation and control of lighting, shading, HVAC, AV, access and much more. 

The Teletask system has a number of input interfaces, but we are going to take a look at the Teletask DIN rail device that is commonly used with our Motion Sensor 360 - Volt Free. 

Digital Input Interface
The Teletask TDS12117 is a digital input interface that has 16 Volt Free inputs, this means, theoretically, up to 16 Faradite Motion Sensor 360 - Volt Free’s can be connected to the digital input interface.

The sensor is powered from 24V DC across the ‘+’ and ‘-’ terminals on the sensor. The motion sensor output terminals should be connected across the ‘C’ terminal and one of the 16 inputs. In the example below we are wiring the sensor to input ‘1’ using the bottom common terminal.

It is possible to connect multiple Motion Sensor 360 - Volt Free to the single digital input interface as it has 16 inputs available. 

To do this, power the sensors with 24V DC as normal, and connect the output across the ‘C’ common terminal and the relevant input terminal. In the example below we have 3 sensors wired to inputs 1, 2 and 3 and they are all using the same ‘C’ terminal.

Beautiful, discreet enhancement

The Teletask system is a great system which can be enhanced with the Faradite Motion Sensor 360 - Volt Free which gives beautifully discreet motion sensor options to the Teletask installer. The 16 inputs on the Teletask Digital Input Interface (TDS12117) mean that up to 16 sensors can be added to the Teletask system using a single, 3MW DIN rail mounted device.
