Can I use the temp Sense input of MultiPlus 48/800/9 as Signal input e.g. for AC current sensor or an ON/OFF status of a limit switch?
Yes you can use it for the AC sensor and also for the limit switch in assistants setups
well you can for the larger units, I have not checked on a 48/800 unit but I would presume it has the same options
Hi Anil, I have played around with this to do 2 things: ignore AC and disabled charger, both of which are possible via Assistants. I have got the "charge current control" assistant to work, by using the temp sense inputs, however it was not as expected.
The +T input gives 5V and the -T input is 0V, so I assumed that if I put a certain voltage into -T (you can specify what voltage in the assistant), that would work. That did not work. But when I shorted +T on MP1200 to G (IE 0V of +5V output) on VenusGX, it then triggered the "control charge current", and the MP1200 went into pass-through mode, which was the response I wanted.
I am going to ask how those pins work, because I actually wanted to set 2 levels: 1.5V would disabled charger, and 5V would ignore AC input, IE - 2 assistants, both working from the same T sense input, but at different voltages. Let's see if there is a response....
(Would also be good to know if we can plug an AC sensor into those and get it to work, the AC sensor manual is a bit ambiguous on if the MP1200 can take that...)
