The image show the example searchligt configuration described in the text. Click on the image to get a bigger version.
The drawing show a typical setup containing a mix of free standing receivers and multi antenna receiver groups.
It also show a mix of ethernet connected and direct motor connected searchlights connected by MAXI-adapters or digital ON/OFF-type control signals from a MINI-adapter.
For Norselight searchligts, the ethernet searchlights in this case may be R50 and R60 searchlights, while the digitally connected searchlights may be R5 controlled by a MINI-adapter.
R20 is a typical example of a direct motor controlled searchlight.
Even though the examples here are Norselight searchlights, any searchlight with direct motor control, digital control,
ethernet control or RS232/RS422 or RS485 control, such as Francis FBUS, may be implemented. Contact supplier for more details.
In the example, the operator first selects the searchlight to control, say searchlight 2.
Searchlight 2 is under control of the multi antenna receiver group, primarily by the multi antenna master in this group.
The receiver will handle any commands to searchlight 2, which is one of the attached searchlights 1-3 on this receiver, and send the commands to the correct searchlight.
The receiver will not resond to commands adressed to other searchlights than 1-3.
The example shows searchlights with a darker reddish colour marked SL1, 2, 3, 4A, 5A and 6A.
This is a configuration where ethernet connected searchlights 1-3 (R50 or R60) are controlled by the multi antenna group.
Searchlight 4A is also an ethernet-controlled searchlight (R50 or R60), but mounted out of cable range from the first group and under control of a singel receiver.
An other receiver controls searchlights 5A and 6A which may be R20 searchlights, each controlled through its separate MAXI relay adapter module.
An other possible configuration is where all 6 searchlights SL 1, 2, 3, 4B, 5B and 6B ar controlled by one multi antenna group on the same physical ethernet.
A third example configuration is where SL 1-3 are connected to one receiver (multi antenna group) and SL 4C is connected to an other receiver,
a simpler R5 searchlight (5C) connected through a MINI-adapter may be controlled by the third receiver while the fourth receiver control SL 6A through a MAXI-adapter.
These are only examples as a multitude of different combinations may be available. For questions on different possibilities, please contact us for more information.
