1.Hazards and Warnings
Manufacturer cannot be held responsible for failure by user to comply with the instructions in this manual.
Any service performed on this product must be completed by a qualified individual.
Replacement of this products must be performed by a qualified individual.
Failure to use this equipment in accordance with the specifications in this documentation could lead to a hazard.
No parts in this device should be replaced or removed.
Disconnect all power supplies before working on the equipment.
The LoRaWAN™ version of the SQUID allows currents to be measured up to 600A.
Kits with a SQUID-HC-LORAWAN, and all necessary accessories: A power supply with attachment to a DIN rail 230 VAC-5VDC (ref: ALIM-RAIL-5V), and a magnetic antenna for external mounting outside the cabinet (ref: ANTMAGNSUP)
Measurement clamps for SQUID-HC – Ø10mm – 75A eff max
Measurement clamps for SQUID-HC – Ø16mm – 100A eff max
Measurement clamps for SQUID-HC – Ø24mm – 300A eff max
Measurement clamps for SQUID-HC – Ø36mm – 600A eff max
Antenna with magnetic base
Power supply 230VAC – 5VDC attachment on DIN rail
The SQUID is a sensor equipped with 12 current measurement clamps which send measured current values by means of a wireless LoRaWAN link.
The products sends the consumption index of the 12 clamps in Ah at configurable intervals.
The SQUID is powered by 5V DC by means of an external power supply.
Mounting and disassembly
This equipment must be installed on a DIN 35mm rail mounted horizontally on the electrical panel.
Make sure to snap the box properly into the DIN rail.
Make provision for the location of 5 modules to install the product on the electrical panel. To disassemble, use a flat head screwdriver to loosen the black clip located under the product.
A 5V DC-2A power supply must be used to power the SQUID. The wiring of the Safety Extra Low Voltage circuits must be maintained and kept separated from circuits carrying hazardous voltages.
- Connection of the measurement
Connect the measurement probes to the 12 connectors on the top and bottom of the equipment. It is possible to pass several phases into a single clamp in order to combine them; however, the phases must be passed in the same direction and the sum of the currents must not exceed the maximum specification of the clamp
The SQUID periodically transmits current measurements performed on his 12 measurement clamps in the form of consumption indexes (Ah) via a LoRaWAN™ radio link
To be able to configure a SQUID on the LoRaWAN™ network, you must use the following codes:
- DevEUI : This is a factory programmed identifier which makes each object unique and is indicated on the label of each product. E.g. 70B3D54750120168
- As well as the two codes AppEUI and AppKey provided with your order.
Network connection process
- Our products try to connect to the network when they start.
- If it does not work, they will retry every 24 hours until it works.
Periodique network reconnection
- Our products restart a network connection procedure every 7 days.
These reconnections improve security.
Indeed, reconnection to the network renews the encryption keys.
The SQUID-LoRaWAN transmits its data in a raw format on different public and private LoRaWAN™ networks.
The section below shows you how to decode the frames (PayLoad) sent by the SQUID.
The periodic frames contain the data measured by the SQUID.
Example of a periodic transmitted frame (HEXADECIMAL):
The status frames contain supplementary information concerning the sensors (battery level, firmware version, etc.)
