FRM01 MULTIFUNCTION PROGRAMMABLE RELAY MODULE – PHI1072018

You are here:
← All Topics

WIRING:

If the DC power supply used is insufficient or wiring connections are poor, the module may appear unstable. Please always follow the following:

 

Separate wiring

  • The DC power supply should power the module and the relay via separate wires. Do not just jumper from the FRM01’s DC+ to the relay or the FRM01’s DC- to the relay.
  • Make sure your DC power supply has sufficient current capability to run the FRM01 and your load. Some loads can draw 3 to 7 times their rated current. If the DC power supply is too small, the load can cause the DC voltage going to the FRM01 to drop too low. This will cause the FRM01 module to reset.
  • If the above two items do not help, add an electrolytic capacitor of 470uf/35V or higher across the DC- and DC+ connector.

 

FRM01 MODULE FUNCTIONS:

The user can select one of the 18 functions as shown below to control the FRM01 timings. All parameters are permanently saved once set. The functions and parameters can be reviewed or changed at a later time. The timer resolution can be set as low as .005 seconds.

 

NOTES:

  • Functions 01 to 08 start automatically when the power is turned on!
  • Function 09 to 18 a high start plus ≥20ms is required via the CH1 input
  • Function 09 is a self-locking mode
  • Function 10 is a level control mode
  • T1 = Timer 1
  • T2 = Timer 2
  • CH1 = Pulse input 1
  • NX = Repeat count
