R-net controler thingy info

Postby funkykeyboard » 23 Jan 2019, 10:04

I want to connect my lights and back rest recliner and leg bag empty so I can control them using the pod using the generic F55 methodology.

Firstly, I don't know what the thing called that you plug into the R-net controler, that you then plug your recliner motor, lights, and any other peripherals? (This is the thing on my lifestand wheelchair https://gyazo.com/bdaed17333ecf9981147b630ceebebdb

I cannot see any stickers to identify the version of R-net controler I have, is there a way to identify it? So I can order the thing above I don't know the name of that is compatible with my R-net controler. (I do have the R-net controler programmer. Could I use this to identify the R-net controler model number?)

Any advice appreciated, Tremulous Tetra. :-)

It's this... http://www.cw-industrialgroup.com/Produ ... ing-Module

But the actuators/channels will need programming, which can be done but complex to set up.

There should be a square box on the R-Net PM's label which says 60, 80 or 120. This is the amp rating. Or use the programming software and look at Boost Current, if it says 120 then it's a 120A Power Module.

So that is just the seating module, Steve? I need another module for the front and rear lights and indicators and my leg bag emptier?

Any advice appreciated, Tremulous Tetra. :-)

No, the ISM has more outputs than the basic seating module here... http://www.cw-industrialgroup.com/Produ ... ing-Module

There's also the Intelligent Seating/lighting Module (ISLM) here... http://www.cw-industrialgroup.com/Produ ... ing-Module which would operate the seat and lights, but unsure how you'd connect your leg bag emptier to the module unless there was a free port assuming you don't use all the seating functions.

If FK only needs a power take-off he could use one of these Rnet bus connectors. I had one originally on my first Puma but can't recall what was connected to it, or where it went for that matter, otherwise I would gladly donate it. Although it's shown here, I can't find it listed. Easy enough to incorporate a switch to activate the legbag emptier.

http://sunrise.pgdrivestechnology.com/pdf/r-net.pdf See bottom centre of the diagram on the first half of page 2.

I think FK wants to use the joystick to activate the leg bag emptier.

IIRC, the F55 used Pilot+, which had similar modules for seating function, lights, etc. - different hardware but same idea...

Steve
finally got round to doing this job and finding out that the power module is 120 amp.
I've just sent this message to the website you recommended.
I wanted to purchase the;
R-net ISM-6 6 channel Intelligent Seating Module
120 amp
and the cable.
Can you tell me how I go about that please?

unless anybody else knows where I can purchase this product?

I'm looking at the serial numbers on the labels and I don't know whether they need to marry with each other, or whether all seating/lighting modules and the power modules are compatible?
So if I buy this Https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/254244235776
Will it be compatible with this
https://gyazo.com/e36b5a9a0eb0d3d9b36db09c09d6c6e3


Secondly, I can find these buss cables, but I cannot find the cable that connects the power module to the seating module, does anybody know what it is called?

those cables are all you require to connect any module into the system, all modules are compatible save some potential programming issues
