HomeWorks® QS Processor
The HomeWorks® QS processor provides control and communication to HomeWorks® QS system components. The Ethernet links allow communication to the HomeWorks® QS software, integration with third party systems and communication between multiple processors. HomeWorks® QS processors may be connected using either standard networking or using ad-hoc networking. All processors on a project must be connected to a single network. The HomeWorks® QS software and all integration equipment must be connected to the same network as the processors. The processor is powered from the QSPS-DH-1-75 or QSPS-DH-1-60 power supply. Refer to the HomeWorks® QS software to determine link power requirements. The HomeWorks® QS processor can be installed in a HQ-LV21, L-LV21, L-LV14, or PNL-8 enclosure.
Each HomeWorks® QS processor has 2 links that can be individually configured as one of four types:
• HomeWorks® / HomeWorks® QS Power Panels 16 interfaces / 256 zones
• HomeWorks® QS Wired Device Link 99 devices / 512 zones
• HomeWorks® QS RF Link 99 devices / 100 zones
• HomeWorks® / HomeWorks® QS Wired Dimmers 4 interfaces / 192 zones
• Processor (P): 24 V(DC) 250 mA
• Links (L1/L2): 24 V(DC) 2 A per link
