Intelligent power distribution box is composed of traditional leakage protector, air switch, AC contactor and KC868-H8. Compared with the traditional power distribution box, it is safer to cut off the strong power supply remotely, and it can save energy through the timing mode while controlling the equipments automatically for the factory or the enterprise.
By connecting security sensors, real-time grasp of the situation on the spot, more assured. Through the trigger of the sensor, the alarm message can be sent to the user through the mobile phone app, and some automatic control can be carried out at the same time. According to the power of the air switch and AC contactor, the controllable power load can reach to the requirements of the whole house, the whole floor and even the whole building.
A. Scenarios suitable for intelligent power distribution box
- The anti-theft alarm application for office, factory, enterprise, apartment, villa and school.
- Centralized control of decentralized lighting and electricity system
- Frequent operation of electrical equipment distributed in different areas
- Application of remote automatic pumping irrigation
- Application of automatic Feed for fish plant
- Intelligent upgrade fortraditional Power Distribution Box
B.The basic frame of the control system:
It is mainly composed of the center control system with KC868-H8 device, the AC contactor with manual control and the air switch. The concrete structure diagram is as follows:
If you want to connect more equipments, please choose KC868-H32 controller, which is the corresponding wiring diagram.
The device of KC868-H8 has two parts: inputs and outputs as showed the frame diagram. At the upper parts, the input terminals are connected with wired switch signal sensors, such as: wind, rain, fencing, smoke, human infrared, door lock, leakage, power loss, light and so on. Sensors need external power supply, which is generally divided into DC 9v and DC 12v, and DC 9V is more common. After supplying power to the sensors, then connect the two detection lines of the sensor into the “input” of the device KC868-H8, regardless of the positive and negative polarity.
At the bottom part, the output terminals first connect to the AC contactor with manual control. The function of manual control is safer to make sure the operation can be opened or closed by hand, in case there is something wrong with the network or other electric problems. It’s the highest priority with hand operation. And then, the AC contactors connect to the air switch, which is same function as the traditional PDB to get the circuit be protected.
Mobile phone APP personality setting:
First, the alarm message can be set to send or not, when each sensor is triggered. If you want to receive the alarm message, you can set up the contents by yourself.
Second, you can set the linkage control for outputs when the inputs are triggered. For example, when the leakage sensor connected to the terminal of “input end 6″ is triggered, it will linkage control the “output terminal 8” to close the connected solenoid valve, meanwhile, the message will be sent to the mobile phone with contents “a leak has been detected in the house” Please go home as soon as possible for inspection so as not to cause unnecessary damage. Similarly, the input terminal one connects to the rainy sensor, and the output terminal connect to the electric window; when the rainy sensor detect raining, the window will be closed automatically by the electric motor, so that avoiding the rain water into the house.
The air switch can connect many different types of electrical equipments, even the total power source for one room or the total power source for several electric equipments, but, make sure the total load should not excess the rated power of the air switch.
The 8 inputs can match to the 8 outputs one by one, and 1 input can matches many outputs together, such as operation of scene mode. All the operation is supporting the user=defined linkage.
C. Install and Operation
- Connect the air switches to the application equipments, operating as same as traditional PDB.
- Whenthe security sensors are required, connect them into the inputs of KC868-H8, meanwhile get the sensors power on.
- 3. Connect the KC868-H8 deviceto the network (network cable of WAN or LAN) and get power on; if there is no cable network,you can add 4G wireless router to convert it to cable network or use the KC868-H8W Wi-Fi version device.
- 4. Configure the IPparameters of the KC868-H8 device (generally, itis DHCP mode as default, just plug the cable to the device)
- 5. Installthe appinto your mobile (Scan the QR code from the official website) or install the software to your computer (downloaded from the official website)
- 6. Set up the executive actions in the APP, whichwill be executed after the sensors are triggered. If a message is required to be sent, then set up the relevant settings. If there are already some accountants whoare authorized to use it, the alarm messages will be sent to all the accountants at the same time. For example, one of the three members of the family is an administrator and the other two are users; when the sensor triggers, all three can receive the alarm message.
- The PDB can be controlled by man handing,the mobile phone APP and also the computer.
When controlled by APP, there can be timing and linkage function.
