The TrolMaster Dry Contact Station module provides a simple and flexible solution to user’s who want to connect & control devices to the Hydro-X using a “dry-contact” or relay to activate the device. Some equipment requires either normally open or normally closed contact closure in order to activate the equipment. The DSD-1 is the product that you need to control those types of devices. The DSD-1 plugs into a standard Nema 120 volt 15/20-amp power outlet to provide operating power to the DSD-1 circuitry. Then the user can use any voltage (up to 240 volts @ 10-amps) to connect their control voltage from their equipment to the common, normally open and/or normally closed contacts on the DSD-1. Almost any device that requires a “dry-contact” or relay to activate will work with the DSD-1. The DSD-1 can be configured to work as the other Trolmaster power modules work. The DSD-1 connects into the “devices” line on the Hydro-X and can be set to control an almost infinite number and types of devices such as: lighting contactors, light deprivation curtains, pump contactors, temperature devices, humidity devices, CO2 devices.
The TrolMaster Dry Contact Station is a pivotal component in advanced automation and control systems. Tailored for compatibility with a variety of devices, this station facilitates seamless integration of your equipment, allowing you to achieve precise control and monitoring in environments ranging from hydroponics to industrial automation.
