Installing the RTU RF G5 ECO

STEP 1

Connect the power supply to the Power supply terminal. The power supply for End unit can be 6V DC (four batteries 1.5 Volts size C) or 12V DC. If the RTU has been defined as ROUTER or it is reading Analog inputs, the power supply voltage must be 12 V DC (Solar panel and rechargeable battery or 12V DC power supply and rechargeable battery).

STEP 2

LEDs ON Button turn on the POWER, NETWORK, RECEIVE, and TRANSMIT LEDs. POWER LED turns on when there is power supply. NETWORK LED turns on when the RTU is connected to the G5 SYSTEM, RECEIVE and TRANSMIT blinks during receiving or transmitting data.

STEP 3

In order to change the RTU mode to a ROUTER , press the LEDS ON button then press the ROUTER button. The ROUTER LED will turn On.

STEP 4

Set the NETWORK ID (SYSTEM NUMBER) of the RF G5 system. In order to set the RF G5 NETWORK ID, use the NETWORK ID rotary switches

STEP 5

Connect an RF Programmer to the PC socket to program the RTU. Use the WORKBENCH ECO software.

STEP 6

Set the RTU ID (RTU address). In order to set the RF G5 RTU ID, use the RTU ID rotary switches.

STEP 7

For your convenience, there is a Test outputs button which enables manually outputs and inputs test.

  • In order to test any output, set the CH1 CH2 Jumper (8) to your preferred output then press and hold the Test button until you will hear one long beep, then, every short click will open or close the output.
  • If you have analog inputs, set the appropriate analog sensor type. In order to set the analog sensor type, use the 4-20 mA or 0-5V dip switches

STEP 8

Connect ANALOG SENSORS to the ANALOG INPUTS TERMINAL

STEP 9

If you have digital inputs (Dry contact Water meter, Fert meter, Pressure sensor, DP sensor) connect the Digital Input to the Digital Inputs terminal

STEP 10

Connect the solenoids (Or other output device like Latch relay or Pump switching device) to the Outputs terminal.

STEP 11

In order to improve the RF reception, install the RF G5 RTU Antenna in a high place. The top of the RF G5 RTU Antenna must be installed on a pipe made of non-metallic material. In addition, the RF G5 RTU Antenna should have a Line of sight with the RF G5 Master or with a ROUTER
