The CommandFusion SW16 is a 16 input switch interface, with 16 dimmable status LED outputs and 4 dimmable backlight LED outputs.
Using the inputs you can trigger rules, essentially using macros to control anything within the CFLink network.
The SW16 is designed to be used with any keypad, custom or off the shelf.
The SW16 Quick Reference Guide provides the basic information required to get started on a printable, black and white document that can be easily taken with you to a job site. Find the SW16 Quick Reference Guide here.
The information panel can be found on the top of the SW16.
The 40 pin header on the front of the unit has pins allocated for all the dry contact inputs and LED outputs, as well as one pair for the LED supply voltage levels and one pair for ground.
The SW16 ships with a ribbon cable ready for use.
Note: Share pin 37 or 38 (depending on what voltage your LEDs require) to the Anode (+ve, longest pin) of all LEDs. Cathode (-ve, short pin) for each LED should be connected to the appropriate LED pin on the SW16.
Note: If using RGB LEDs, make sure they are the 'common anode' type. Then pin 37 or 38 (depending on LED voltage) can be used for anode and each RGB cathode is connected to individual LED pins (17-36).
Note: If LEDs require voltage higher than 5V DC, an external power supply can be used up to 30V DC. Simply connect external power +ve to the Anode pins of the LEDs, and the external power supply -ve to pins 39 or 40 (ground) of SW16. Cathode of LEDs still connects to the appropriate LED pin on SW16 (pins 17 - 36).
The 5-pin CFLink connector is used to communicate with other CFLink devices on the network.
The MicroSD slot is used to expand the on-board memory via MicroSD cards.
The SW16 ships with the following accessories:
92cm (36 inch), 40-pin, rainbow-colored ribbon cable.
One end is a standard header connector, ready to plug into SW16.
Other end is stripped and tinned wires, ready for connecting to a button panel.
