Next phase in the Bwired Proliphix Ethernet Thermostat:
I Really had some troubles putting in the new Ethernet cable which is required.
For the proliphix thermostat you need at least 1 full Ethernet cable cable, incl the Power over Ethernet(POE),
and another 2 pair cable for switching your HVAC House Heating system.
But the Proliphix has more outputs and you can also connect two extra temperature sensors to it.
So 2 Ethernet cables was my goal, and it finally paid off I got the cables in (2x 10 meters)
See also the yellow lifeline wire [:D]
After the cables where in place I mounted the frame plate,
I wanted to use the existing screw holes so I adjusted the frame to fit the holes.
After this It was time to connect the UTP cables,
Within the frame plate there is a picture of how this should be done,
all very easy. Because the Proliphix NT20E comes with a POE adapter 4 wires of the UTP are used for
communicating with the Proliphix and the other 4 are for the power over Ethernet (POE).
2 pairs of the other Ethernet cable I connected to relay output RH and W1, this relay controls your Hvac system,
on my NEMEF Hvac system I connect these wires to the potential free input.
Connecting them on the normal original Thermostat input the Hvac system was not working?
See on the below image the many connection there are available,
the proliphix has a total off 5 relays. All the electronics is very well taken care off, the proliphix is very solid.
Clicking on the Front panel is very easy and there is only one way to do it.
After that connecting the Ethernet cable to the POE unit is very well explained in the manual.
The POE unit has possibility to connect 2 devices which need Power over Ethernet.
The POE comes with a small switched European power supply (24 volt).
after measuring the power consumption with a Conrad power meter it was 0, so probably < 1 Watt.
Hooked up the power and lucky me the Proliphix thermostat was running.
It comes with a built in Webserver with DHCP and it directly took an IP number of my router.
