Sunlite Suite 2
All Suite2 interfaces have 8 dry contact ports at the rear.
This socket is HE10 interface port socket. You can insert an 8 button touch-pad into this socket. This works by bridging each of the 8 trigger
pins with the ground pin.
You can connect up to 255 buttons by combining the 8 ports in binary. For example, if ports 1, 2 and 3 are connected to the ground pin, this will trigger address 7.
One way of combining the ports from a dry contact switch would be to insert a diode between the switch and the ports. A generic purpose diode for small signals can be used such as the 1n4148.
Once the port connections have been set up. They can be assigned to trigger a scene within the scene settings "Trigger" tab. If you are addressing the ports in binary, be sure to select "Address 8" for example, instead of "Port 8".
You can also set up a port trigger from the previous/next buttons mounted on the interface.
