Question:

I have seen that Didactum's IP capable monitors are equipped with a ground connection. What is this connection for?

Answer:

Put simply, the grounding / earthing terminal is used for the functional grounding of the networked remote measuring and monitoring devices in the context of electromagnetic compatibility (EMC).


Question:

Which cable should I use if I want to put the IP sensors farther away from main sensor unit?

Answer:

Most of our network enabled sensors are supplied with a 2 meter long RJ11/RJ12 connection cable as well as mounting material (mounting kit / screws). The sensors are connected to the IP-based monitoring system via Plug `n` Play and automatically identified.

If you want to install the Didactum analogue sensors farther away from the Didactum control unit, you can order suitable RJ11 / RJ12 extension cables as well as sensor cables in our online store. Important: Please note that the Didactum DC sensors are wired exclusively via 6-core 6P6C patch cable.


Question:

Which configurations / extensions are available on Didactum's Monitoring System 500 II?

Answer:

The infrastructure remote monitoring devices 500 II and 500 II DC (48V DC power supply) are supplied as standard including the extension board (Part No. 14120). As an option, the internal GSM modem (Part No. 14108) is available. Alternatively, you can also order the internal 1-Wire module (Part No. 14110). Please note that when ordering the 500 II (DC) Monitoring System including 1-Wire module, it is not possible to install the extension board (Part No. 14120). However, the 500 II (DC) monitoring device incl. 1-Wire module can be equipped with the GSM modem.

Here again in short form:

  • 500 II (DC) including extension board and GSM modem = possible
  • 500 II (DC) including extension board and 1 wire board = not possible
  • 500 II (DC) exclusive expansion board including 1 wire board and GSM modem = possible
