ETC Installation Guide Unison Heritage Fader Station Overview The Unison® Heritage Fader Station connects to the LinkConnect station communication bus. LinkConnect is based on Echelon® LonWorks™ with LinkPower bidirectional protocol, and uses one pair of wires (data+, data–). LinkPower is topology free and polarity independent; you can install your LinkPower data runs in any desired combination of bus, star, loop, and home-run. ETC recommends using Belden 8471 (or approved equal) wire. The total combined length of a LinkPower wire run may not exceed 1,640 feet (500m), with a maximum distance of 1,312 feet (400m) between any two devices. The Heritage Fader Station may be installed into an industry standard single gang backbox (provided by others) or a surface mounted backbox (sold separately and available from ETC). All control wiring should be installed and terminated by a qualified installer and should follow standard wiring installation practices. Leave approximately 10 inches (254mm) of wiring in the backbox for connection and to allow slack for future service needs. Note: ETC requires that all stations be grounded by using grounded metal conduit or a 14 AWG (2.5mm2) ESD drain wire. Installation Installation should follow local codes and standard practices. The backbox should be installed square for best results. Ensure that the backbox is clean and free of obstructions and that all wiring is installed correctly. Heritage stations ship with a termination kit containing a LinkPower pigtail, a ground wire pigtail, spacers, and all required connectors for installation.

ETC Installation Guide Unison Heritage Series Connect the Wiring Step 1: Step 2: Pull all required wiring to the backbox. Terminate and connect LinkPower. LinkPower is topology free and polarity independent. You may install LinkPower in any combination of bus, loop, star, or home-run. Topology of a single station installation Installed control wire Pigtail wire Topology of multiple stations installed in series Installed control wire Installed wire to next station Pigtail wire Locate the LinkPower pigtail and two WAGO CAGE CLAMP® connectors from the termination kit. b: Strip 3/8” (9-10mm) from the ends of each LinkPower wire (both pigtail and installed LinkPower wire). c: Use the WAGO connector to connect the installed control wire to the connectorized pigtail wires provided. Open the terminal levers on the WAGO connector and insert the installed (typically black) Belden 8471 LinkPower wire and the black lead from the LinkPower pigtail into the terminals. d: Close the levers onto the wires. e: Repeat for the installed (typically white) Belden 8471 LinkPower wire ground and remaining pigtail wire using a connection new WAGO connector. f: Install the LinkPower connector onto the control board. Terminate the ESD drain (ground) wire. This connection is required only when the control cable is not installed in grounded metal conduit. LinkPower a: Locate the ground wire pigtail and connection one WAGO connector from the termination kit. b: Strip 3/8” (9-10mm) from the end of each ground wire (both the provided pigtail and the installed wire). a: Step 3: Uni son He r it ag e Fa de r St at i on Page 2 o f 4 El ec tr o ni c Th eat r e Con t ro ls , I nc . ETC Installation Guide Unison Heritage Series c: d: e: Note: Use the WAGO connector to connect the installed ground wire to the pigtail wire provided. Open the terminal levers on the WAGO connector and insert the installed (typically green/ yellow) ESD drain (ground) wire and the green/yellow lead from the pigtail into the terminals. Close the levers onto the wires. Install the ground spade onto the receptacle on the control board. A ground connection is required for all Heritage Fader Station assemblies if not installed in a grounded metal backbox. Install the Station into the Backbox and At tach the Fa ceplate Spacers are provided to help, as needed, to align the station and cover flush against the wall in flush mount applications. The spacers are not needed on surface mount backboxes. Step 3 Step 4 Install into Backbox Step 1: Insert the station electronics and wiring into the backbox. The arrow on the mounting plate must point up. Note: Step 2: Step 3: For some flush mount applications with certain trim rings it may be necessary to remove the station’s back cover for installation into the backbox. If needed, fold the receptacle spacer in a zig-zag fashion and press together to achieve the required thickness to fill the gap between the station and backbox. Cut off the excess and place between the station and flush backbox. Secure the station with screws provided. If using spacers, insert the screws through them.

ETC Installation Guide Unison Heritage Series CAUTION: Step 4: To improve successful station and wall plate installation, do not over tighten the screws. If screws are over tightened, button activation can be negatively impacted. If required for the station type, install button caps so that the clear light tunnels protrude through the caps. Button caps are supplied with the faceplate kit. Attach Faceplate The faceplate is secured to the station with two magnets that are located on the bottom side of the faceplate. The faceplate kit includes all buttons and fader knobs required. Note: Step 1: Step 2: Step 3: Step 4: Step 5: Button caps are installed before the faceplate is attached. Reference Step 4 of the previous procedure. Align the top of the faceplate approximately 20 degrees from the station. Hook the top of the faceplate to the tabs located on the station electronics assembly. To ensure the faceplate is hooked properly on the top hook, wiggle it slightly side to side while the bottom is angled about 20 degrees from the wall. Swing the bottom of the faceplate down until the magnets engage. If the faceplate does not fully attach automatically, wiggle the bottom of the plate until the magnets are seated properly to the station and the faceplate is secure. Install fader knobs to the sliders. Note: Uni son He r it ag e Fa de r St at i on The Paradigm Architectural Control Processor to which this Heritage station is connected must learn, or be told, the station hardware address (a.k.a. neuron ID). This ID can be manually entered into the configuration (as labeled on the station metal) using LightDesigner software, or can be identified by the connected Paradigm ACP using the "Connect a Device" menu. Reference the Unison Paradigm Architectural Control Processor Configuration Manual; specifically the section on Arch Setup Menu, LonWorks Connections.
