PowerView® PS-18/300 power supply¶
This guide will explain step-by-step how to install the PS-18/300 power supply and connect the PowerView® motor wires on the connection terminals. The following instruction will show you how to:
Install and mount the power supply on a wall
Correctly set up the wiring of the PowerView® installation
Connect the wires onto the terminal blocks of the power supply
1. Hardware overview¶
1.1. Package contents¶
1.2. Optional accessories¶
1.3. Installation parts & equipment¶
To install the power supply and for connecting wires to the connection terminal block, following parts and equipment are needed.
2. Hardware installation¶
The PS-18/300 power supply has been designed to install vertically to a wall. An A4 paper template is available to easily determine the mounting holes.
In this guide, the power supply will be installed on a concrete wall.
Before continuing, take note of the different connection terminals and components of the power supply.
- The ventilation holes (both sides of the housing) may not be covered. Leave enough free space of the left and right side.
- There are 4 fused motor group connection terminals. Each group is able to deliver max. 4Amps @ 18VDC.
Do not exceed the load on each terminal.
- In case of a broken group fuse, the group LED will not light up when the power supply is powered on.
- Always switch off the power supply and disconnect the power cable when installing or making connections.
- Make use of the cable management clamps to neatly align the motor and power cables.
- Make sure a power socket is nearby (max. 0.5m).
The bare metal connections (18VDC) under the power supply's front cover are safe to touch when the power is on.
All 230VAC components are shielded from any possible human or pet contact.
2.1. Installing the power supply¶
Stick the mounting template onto the wall.
Use a level tool to align the template.
Drill 4 holes at the
Pilot hole center positons indicated on the template.
Remove the mounting template and use a hammer to put the wall plugs into place.
Use a screwdriver to install the screws.
The distance from the wall to the flat surface of the panhead screw is about 3.5mm.
Remove the front cover and mount the power supply to the wall.
2.2. Connecting cables¶
Remove the power supply from the wall and disconnect the power cable.
Make sure the power switch is set in the
There are different options on how-to connect a range of 18VDC PowerView® motors:
- Combination individually/daisy-chained
As a general rule of thumb, connect
maximum 4 motors (1 motor = max. 1Amp power consumption) per terminal block.
Connecting a PowerView® motor to the power cable is done using a female jack adapter (article 17.0361.0000).
Depending on the motor count per chain and used wire surface/diameter, a maximum cable length per chain is allowed.
See table below for more information.
|wire area: 0.5mm²||wire length [m.]|
|wire area: 0.75mm²||wire length [m.]|
|wire area: 1.0mm²||wire length [m.]|
|wire area: 1.5mm²||wire length [m.]|
Take note of the
polarity to connect the motor wires on the terminal block.
Connect the wires from an individual or daisy-chained motor(s) to 1 or more
Watch out for the polarity.
Wrong connection may damage the power supply.
Use good recognizable motor wiring.
E.g. red wire = plus (+) ; black wire = minus (-)
Mount the power supply back to the wall.
Put the terminal block(s) in place on the power supply.
Do not connect unused terminal blocks.
Connect the power cable and make sure all cables are guided through the
recess on the power supply.
Use cable ties to fasten all cables and wires using the
cable management clamps.
Mount the power supply back to the wall and connect the power cable to the power socket.
Flip the power switch to the
Check if all
group LEDs are lit.
Install the front cover.
Check if all PowerView® blinds connected to the power supply can be controlled
up and down.
You are ready to use your PowerView® PS-18/300 power supply.
