NS2 compatability with EM2-H1 Monitor

Postby dennisgade on Fri Dec 04, 2009 10:21 am

I currently have the Next-12P Next Step regulator and the EM2-H1 Energy Monitor. The current wiring has a connection from the EM2-H1 TB2-1 SLR to the Nextstep Regulator ABS connection point. The new NS2 does not have a connection point on either TB1 or TB2. There is a connection on the Next -12p Parallel that is also on the NS2 which I will use.

Where do I connect the EM2 12P SLR connection to the NS2 interface. What is the effect of not having this connection available to the new regulator?

The NS2 was designed to be a basic standalone regulator and therefore doesn't have an Emon interface. The Emon interface would lock the original Next Step, or the SAR V3 into the absorption phase until the FULL criteria was met as programmed on the Emon.

You will have to pay more attention to the time adjustment on the NS2 to get an absorption time appropriate to you system. Monitor when it goes into float and adjust absorption accordingly.
