I will be fitting a RIO01 in an out building and would like to know if I can use an alternative PSU to power it up, Obviously it has to be 12V but what is the maximum ampere that it can accept and minimum? as it may need to be protected by an inline resetable fuse. Also can it use 12V DC as the power source as against a 12V AC power source?
Although it can possibly take the power from the main comfort panel, The main panel is not far of its maximum power output, and would rather avoid using that as a source and I cannot find any technical specs on max power input ect on the RIO01.
You need 12V DC (not AC) to power the RIOThe RIO will require less than 100 ma from the 12V power supply so any power supply which can provide more than that will do. Dont worry about the maximum ampereres, as RIO will not take more current than it required
Yiou can also use a Slave SEP01 to supply power to the RIO. The advatange of that is there will be a bacttery backup if you use a battery with the SEP
Is their a way of resetting the RIO01 without disconecting the power. Have an issue with RIO01 turning on a light and unable to turn off though the usaul method. Once power removed and restored to RIO01, works fine again.
SW1 - Fault RESET. This resets the Output drivers after a Fault condition
has occurred, as shown by the D5 Fault LED
A Cold Reset is defined as operation of RIO when Power is first applied, or reapplied after a complete power off. A Warm Reset is defined as operation when a reset command is sent from Comfort or the RESET button is pressed on Comfort.
After a Cold Reset, all Outputs will be reset to 0V, or the off state. And the ID settings from the shunts are read. After a Warm Start the outputs remain in their previous state. After a Warm or Cold Reset, the Inputs do not activate their programmed Responses regardless of their state is on or off.
I am not sure why your output was activated by itself
There has been no fault light on the RIO (on label it says RIO2) I have checked conditions for actions a simple command, input scsrio 153 door open/close output on/off it also triggers output scsrio 160 when it should only be triggering SCSrio output 159,
Does this mean that there is a fault on the RIO board chips?
