The 3 phase generation sensor

The sensor is pre-configured and requires no setup; only hard wiring is required.
See installation figures on the back.

  1. Disconnect the Public AC grid and the generation unit already installed.
  2. Mount the 3-phase generation sensor as shown in figure.
  3. Check if the 3-phase generation sensor switch is in the ‘locked’ Position as shown in figure 1.
  4. Connect the 3-phase generation sensor in accordance with the configuration as shown in figure 1 (“3P.n”). Cable cross-section area: 4 mm2 - 16 mm2. Tighten the screws with a torque between 1.7 Nm and 3 Nm.
  5. Connect the 2 meter sensor cable to the 3-phase generation sensor (included).
    a. Green/white wire -> sensor terminal 41.
    b. Green wire -> sensor terminal 42.
    c. Orange/white wire -> sensor terminal 43.
  6. A CAT5e UTP cable (or better), with a maximum length of 25 meters, may be used to extend the connection (RJ45-connector type: T-568B).
  7. Insert the RJ45 plug at the end of the sensor cable into the splitter delivered with the 3-phase generation sensor. Also connect the UTP cable of the 3-phase grid sensor to the splitter, as shown in figure 3.
  8. Place the ferrite core with one loop in the cable. Connect a CAT5e UTP cable (or better) from the splitter to the PowerRouter CAN port. The ferrite core must be within 10 cm of the PowerRouter as shown in figure 3.
  9. Verify the communication between the sensor and the PowerRouter by moving the joystick on the sensor to the right until the text "Serial" is displayed on the display. 
    There should be a blinking "rT" (receive, transmit) indicating that communication is oke. If not check the connection.

Caution:
Make sure the sensor is correctly installed. Wrong installation will result in no self-use maximization, damage the sensor or will deplete the battery.

For an installation of the sensor in a 1-phase situation, make sure the sensor is connected as shown in figure 4. Terminal 4 must always be powered.

For further details on the sensor please refer to the manufacturer’s manual.
