    Description: The Animeo RS-485 motor controller is an intelligent motor controller designed to allow digital control of up to four standard Somfy motors. Catalog numbers: AC - 1860158, DC - 1860159.

    Features: In addition to RS-485 serial control, the Animeo RS-485 motor controller allows motor control through any of the methods below.

    *RTS control: Allows control via any Somfy RTS transmitter or RTS interface *IR control: Allows control via the Somfy 8 channel IR transmitter

    * IR and RTS modules sold separately

    Dry contact: Manually operate motors through a low voltage switch

  • Installation: Ensure each motor controller is mounted and secured as outlined in the instructions included with the controller. Mounting options are wall mount or din rail mount.

    Motor Connections - it is important to follow the same wiring configuration for each motor. For example, if AC motor controllers are being used the connections should be as follows. Green/earth ground should connect to the green terminal. The neutral wire should connect to the blue terminal. Directional wires should connect to the grey terminal with the up and down arrows.

    Additionally, wiring DC motors to the motor controller should follow the same method.

    Once all motors are connected and input power is applied, it is necessary to test the motor direction. There are two ways this can be done:

    1) Carefully connect the common, up, and down directions of an Animeo switch to the corresponding inputs on the low voltage terminal block. Verify that pressing the up direction moves the shade UP, while the down button moves the shade DOWN.

    2) Using a wire jumper on the low voltage terminal block input, use a wire jumper to “jump” the common “C” terminal to the up and down terminals. Verify each direction moves the shade to its appropriate end limit.

    *If pressing the up button or initiating a dry contact moves the shade in the down direction, first verify the Animeo switch is properly connected to the appropriate terminals. If this is correct, reverse the motor’s directional wires associated with the switch input which is being tested. Note: It is highly recommended to disconnect power prior to changing any wire configuration.

    After the controllers have been properly mounted, wired, and motor directions tested refer to page 13 of the Animeo IB+ Motor Controller instruction booklet (provided) to configure the controller to the desired end product. Note: Failure to set the correct end product may result in erratic operation. See also MoCo Positioning Key Modes.

    Setup : Required components for programming. 1) PC with available serial or usb port 2) RS-232 to RS-485 convertor 3) RS485 ILT3 Programming Software

    Prior to programming it is required to install the necessary software along with any drivers that may be required for the serial device. Once the hardware and software is installed successfully it is imperative the communication parameters are set to the following. These settings can be accessed in the Device Manager on the pc. Bits Per Second: 4800 Data Bits: 8 Parity: Odd Stop Bits: 1 Flow Control: None

    Connect the + and - terminals from the RS-232 to RS-485 converter to the RS-485 terminal block, located on the far right side on the controller. The + line should connect to one of the A terminals, while the - line should connect to one of the B terminals. Since both A and B terminals are internally connected to each other, either terminal connection is allowed.

    Programming: Open the RS485 ILT3 Programming Software. On the top left hand side of the program choose the com port in which your serial device is connected to, then click the Open button to open the selected com port.

    Note: the Open button should now say Close.

  • The programming screen should now look like this:

    The first step in programming is to locate the node id. The 8 digit ID located on the top of the motor controller, illustrated right. The last 6 digits of this is the MoCo base address in decimal. Note, communication must be done with the hexadecimal conversion of this address. To find the hexadecimal equivalent open the calculator on your pc. Choose view and make sure calculator is set to scientific (Figure 1). With the decimal check box selected enter in the last 6 digits of the ID located on the motor controller. To obtain the hexadecimal (hex) equivalent simply select the “hex” check mark and the ID will now be displayed in hex (Figure 2).

    Note, the ID displayed in Figure 2 has 5 digits instead of 6. Zero’s are not displayed in the first digit location. When entering this ID into the programming software, enter 06DA6B.

    Motor Controller Addressing:

  • Alternatively, the hex ID can also be read from the motor controller. With only one motor controller connected to your pc click the Broadcast check box and make sure the General settings tab is selected. Directly under the General settings tab is the Motor Base Address (HEX) box. Click the check box that states Set Base Address. Now click the GET button. The Motor Base Address box should have filled in with the base address. Note the base address read in software should be the same address calculated. If trying to read an ID with multiple motor controllers connected the ID returned will be invalid.

    Deselect the Broadcast and Set Base Address check boxes. Notice that the base address is also located in the MoCo Base Address box.

    If after clicking the Get Address button nothing appears reverse the wiring configuration on the RS-232 to RS-485 converter and try again.

    Explanation of Base Address and Individual Motor Addresses:

    Take note in the command box, top right, there is one sent command and four receive commands. Bytes 4-6 are the individual motor addresses. The breakdown of theseaddresses are as follows:

    06DA6B = Base Address, master control of all 4 motor controller outputs 06DA6C = Motor 1 Address 06DA6D = Motor 2 Address 06DA6E = Motor 3 Address 06DA6F = Motor 4 Address

    Alternatively, one can determine the individual motor addresses by simply adding one to the base address for motor 1, add 2 to the base address for motor 2, and so fourth. This pattern remains the same for all other Animeo RS-485 motor controllers.

    MoCo Channels: Selection of channel 1, channel 2, channel 3 or channel 4 indicates which channel the programmer is controlling and/or programming.

    General Settings: Within the general settings window the base address can be read, group addresses read and programmed, node labels entered to describe the location or type of window treatment, and motor locked at current position or either end limits.

  • Programming Group Addresses:

    Assigning group addresses allows any number of motors connected to multiple motor controllers to respond from the same command. A group address may comprise motors/motor controllers from an entire facade, floor, building or motor controllers from a single office. Each channel can be programmed with up to 16 group addresses.

    To program a group address for channel 1, ensure channel 1 is selected under MoCo channels. From the Group Address (HEX) field select the group address from the drop down menu in which to program. In the text box directly to the right, enter the 3 byte (6 digit) hex (0-9, A-F) address. To program this to the motor controller click the Set button. The group address can be programmed to any of the 16 group address locations (0-15).

    Similarly, to program group address for channel 2, ensure the channel 2 is selected under MoCo channels and follow the same process.

    To read an address, choose the group address from the drop down menu and click the Get button. The group address should appear in the text box directly to the right.

    Node Label: This field allows the programmer to assign up to a 32 digit label to the associated channel. This could indicate a room number or office number.

    Lock Status: Locking an individual channel or group prevent those motors from responding to any bus line commands that of which are at a priority level below the lock status. For example, locking a conference room shades at the lower position with a priority level greater the default value will prevent any switches outside the conference room from operating the shades.

    Once the lock command is selected choose a priority value between 0-255. If a priority value of 5 is chosen, an unlock command with a priority value greater or equal to 5 must be sent in order to return the individual channel or group back to normal operating conditions.

  • MoCo Positioning: Motor Position sends channels to an Intermediate Positions (IP).
