SW16

The CommandFusion SW16 is a 16 input switch interface, with 16 dimmable status LED outputs and 4 dimmable backlight LED outputs.
Using the inputs you can trigger rules, essentially using macros to control anything within the CFLink network.
The SW16 is designed to be used with any keypad, custom or off the shelf.

Quick Reference Guide

The SW16 Quick Reference Guide provides the basic information required to get started on a printable, black and white document that can be easily taken with you to a job site. Find the SW16 Quick Reference Guide here.

Information Panel

The information panel can be found on the top of the SW16.

LEDs

  • Power (Blue)
    • Off = Power off
    • Flashing = Booting or firmware missing
    • Solid = Power on and ready
  • CFLink Fault (Red)
    • Solid = Fault discovered on CFLink bus. Remain solid until reset.
    • Reset unit to clear CFLink fault flag and turn off LED.
  • CFLink Activity (Amber)
    • Flashing = CFLink activity is detected on the CFLink network.
  • Input (Amber)
    • Solid = One or more of the dry contact inputs is closed.
    • Off = All dry contact inputs are open.
  • LED (Amber)
    • Solid = One or more of the status LED outputs is on.
    • Off = All status LEDs are off.
  • BLight
    • Solid = One or more of the backlight LED outputs is on.
    • Off = All backlight LEDs are off.

Ports

40 Pin Header

The 40 pin header on the front of the unit has pins allocated for all the dry contact inputs and LED outputs, as well as one pair for the LED supply voltage levels and one pair for ground.
The SW16 ships with a ribbon cable ready for use.

  37. Voltage supply 3.3V DC max 500mA - To Anode (+) of LEDs
  38. Voltage supply 5V DC max 1A - To Anode (+) of LEDs
  39. Ground
  40. Ground

Note: Share pin 37 or 38 (depending on what voltage your LEDs require) to the Anode (+ve, longest pin) of all LEDs. Cathode (-ve, short pin) for each LED should be connected to the appropriate LED pin on the SW16.

Note: If using RGB LEDs, make sure they are the 'common anode' type. Then pin 37 or 38 (depending on LED voltage) can be used for anode and each RGB cathode is connected to individual LED pins (17-36).

Note: If LEDs require voltage higher than 5V DC, an external power supply can be used up to 30V DC. Simply connect external power +ve to the Anode pins of the LEDs, and the external power supply -ve to pins 39 or 40 (ground) of SW16. Cathode of LEDs still connects to the appropriate LED pin on SW16 (pins 17 - 36).

The 5-pin CFLink connector is used to communicate with other CFLink devices on the network.
