Switching Inductive Loads

The ConsoliDator+ has internal circuitry to protect the relays from inductive loads, however, the use of suppressors (snubbers) is strongly recommended when switching inductive loads to prevent disrupting the microprocessor’s operation. The suppressors also prolong the life of the relay contacts. Suppression can be obtained with resistorcapacitor (RC) networks assembled by the user or purchased as complete assemblies. Refer to the following circuits for RC network assembly and installation.

AC and DC Internal Inductive Load Protection
AC and DC Internal Inductive Load Protection

For additional external protection choose R and C as follows:

R: 0.5 to 1 Ω for each volt across the contacts
C: 0.5 to 1 μF for each amp through closed contacts

Notes:

  1. Use capacitors rated for 250 VAC.
  2. RC networks may affect load release time of solenoid loads. Check to confirm proper operation.
  3. Install the RC network at the instrument's relay screw terminals. An RC network may also be installed across the load. Experiment for best results.

Use diode with a reverse breakdown voltage two to three times the circuit voltage and forward current at least as large as the load current.

Low Voltage DC Loads Protection

RC Networks Available from Precision Digital

RC networks are available from Precision Digital and should be applied to each relay contact switching an inductive load. Part number: PDX6901.

Serial Communication Connections

The RS-485 port for serial communication (using Modbus protocol) has three terminals labeled D+, D-, and G. It is strongly recommended to use three-wire shielded cable and to always connect the ground terminal to the other equipment’s ground to avoid differential voltage between the systems. Distances up to 4000 feet can be reached with RS-485. Up to 32 Modbus devices may be connected to a single RS-485 bus.

Serial Connections
