Ok, has ANYONE actually gotten a MyPin TD4 upd and working? I swear at the end of this saga I'm going to write up a layman's guide for getting these things working if I ever manage it.
Ok, the image (assuming it came through) is from the TA4, but the TD4 wiring guide is exactly the same. (The TD4 includes a manual mode supposedly... that's if the darn thing ever works.) btw image came from Kal's site. Thanks for the opportunity to pirate! (however unsuccessfully.)
Below are the permutations of how I have attempted to connect wires to this thing in order to get it to work. Nothing seems to although the unit appears to be working correctly with the thermometer etc. It simply isn't sending out any signals to the alarm or the SSR connection.
I would post pictures but at this point everything is disconnected and I'm ready to start from scratch, hopefully correctly... Here goes.
1: white neutral
2: black feed
3 white neutral out to SSR
4 black feed out to SSR
5 white neutral to alarm light
6 black feed to alarm light
7 red line from thermoprobe
8 blue line from thermoprobe
Based on what I've read this seems to be the right way to do this.
I also had black and white lines going from the SSR to my outlet which hopefully one day will control the pump.
Power on the unit. Set it's alarm and set points such that both the output 1 (ssr) and alarm1 lights go on in the unit which SUPPOSEDLY indicates that power is being sent to those units.
The tester confirms that no power is going out to those leads whatsoever. AHA you say... bad unit. I thought about that, of course and tried my OTHER MyPin TD4 and it behaves in exactly the same way. neither the SSR out nor the Alarm1 out appear to have any power going out.
I also tried to swap the white and black lines on the 1 and 2 post as well as swapping all the white and black lines on the outputs. No matter what combination I do, nothing seems to work. For giggles, I connected the white and black directly to the SSR input. It's getting power but nothing is coming out the other side.
I'm not very clear on how to hook up the SSR obviously but it seems not to matter too much since I can't get any power to it from the TD4 anyway.
Can anybody provide any insight about what I'm doing wrong here? It seems like hooking the darn thing up shouldn't be quite so complicated. Any help at all would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
