Installation guide

Important! During installation and operation, observe the general rules of electrical safety regarding the use of electrical appliances, as well as the requirements of regulations on electrical safety. It is strictly forbidden to disassemble a device to which any conductors are connected!

Atom series controllers require pre-configuration:

1. Changeable modules

Remove the housing cover where the i3-flex connectors are located to install changeable modules. Insert the modules in place, making sure each module is inserted correctly and securely in the connector. Close the lid.

Illustration

Important! Replace the modules only after turning off the power to the controller. The procedure for recognizing changeable modules takes place during the power up of the controller! If you replace the modules when the controller is on, the system will not be able to identify their types, which will lead to incorrect operation of the controller and may lead to failure of both the controller and the connected load!


2. Installation

Install the controller and power supply to the DIN rail. Make sure there are no signs of mechanical damage or condensation. If necessary, install additional switchboard equipment - contactors, circuit breakers, power supplies and other automation devices.


3. Power supply

Connect the power supply to the mains via the circuit breaker. Connect the power supply output to the controller's power connector.
Controller power connectors, sensor power outputs and load control outputs for easy installation are made in the form of removable connectors with screw terminals.

Illustration

Important! Although the controller has built-in protection against incorrect power connection, and in this situation will not fail, we recommend that you pay attention to the correct polarity when connecting.

4. i3-NET

If your system uses multiple controllers, connect them to a i3-NET network. Install the end terminators included in the equipment kit at the ends of the bus.

Illustration

5. RS-485

If you have Modbus controled devices, connect them to the bus and connect them to the RS-485 connector. Install the end terminators included in the equipment kit at the ends of the bus.

Illustration

6. Sensors power supply

A 5V and 3.3V controller outputs are provided to power the sensors.

Important! If the system uses sensors or actuators with other operating voltages, use additional power supplies or the power supply that powers the controller. If the system uses several power supplies - connect their "negative" terminals to each other.

7. Input connections

Connect sensors, switches and other devices to the controller inputs. The inputs of the controller use connectors with spring-loaded contacts, which provides convenience and reliability of connection of conductors with a cross-section up to 1.5 mm2.

Dangerous interference can occur on long lines when connecting end devices such as switches, so we use additional protection and improved sensitivity of interaction with end devices. We use optocouplers for this. By default, all inputs with jumpers are configured in this mode "Optocoupler". If you use digital sensors at the inputs of the controller, be sure to turn off this mode

Illustration

Important! The inputs are numbered, and each input is marked with a "common" pin (marked with the letter "G") - this is a common contact, it is connected to the "minus" power supply of the controller. All common contacts are interconnected, so when connecting switches with a multicore cable, it is sufficient to use one connection to terminal “G”.

8. Output connections

Connect the controlled devices to the outputs. Each output is implemented in the form of a 2-pin connector and is designed to connect conductors with a cross-section up to 2.5 mm2. One of the contacts is marked "OUT". The load is connected according to the type of output.

A special feature of the Atom Hydrogen controller is the modular architecture of the outputs. The type of the OUT1-OUT8 outputs is set by the changeable modules that are installed in the i3-flex connectors and can be replaced at any time.
Models and characteristics of changeable modules are given in the table:

Relays, dimmers for smooth regulation of direct and alternating current loads, 0-10V interface - thanks to changeable modules all this can be switched by one controller. This allows you to control a wide range of devices: ordinary and dimming lamps, single-color and RGB LED strips, fans, pumps, thermal heads, devices with 0-10V interface, intermediate relays, electric locks and many other types of equipment for home and industrial automation.
Examples of connecting loads to the Atom Hydrogen N controller are given below.

OUT1-OUT8

Illustration

OUT9-OUT10 relay outputs with switching current up to 5A (active load), designed for switching DC and AC loads with voltage up to 250V.
They are best suited for controlling low-power loads: thermal heads, LED lamps and luminaires up to 10 W, devices with dry contact inputs (garage doors, impulse blinds), intermediate relays, emergency lighting, electric locks.

Illustration

AC IN and AC OUT connectors - energy meter input and output connections. The built-in energy meter is designed to control the voltage, current consumption and power of devices connected to the AC OUT connector. Controlled voltage range 170 - 250V, current - up to 10A.

Important! Even if an energy meter is not used, the neutral and phase wires must be connected to the AC IN input. This connection is required for the proper operation of the changeable modules ACD and ACD+ (if available).

Important! In case of using 3-phase power supply with load distribution by phases, the outputs on which the ACD and ACD + changeable modules are installed, and the energy meter input must be connected to same phase!

9. Network connection (modification N)

The operation of network controllers requires remote access to configure, manage and control their operation. To ensure these capabilities, at least one of the controllers must be able to connect to a wired or wireless network. In the Atom product line, these are the N modification controllers. Don't forget to connect the network cable to the controller or configure access to the home Wi-Fi network .

Important! The router must have a DHCP server configured to automatically issue the IP address and network mask.

10. Done. Turn on the power

Important! Check all connections. Make sure that the power supply, inputs and outputs are connected correctly.

11. i3 Home App configuration

After turning on the controller, you need to download the i3 Home mobile application and configure the system.
