Install FWC

page-note p.5 (see manual)
/img/5.InstallFWC-1.FWC.svg

Dry wall near panel (for recessed panels) There must be at least 15.5” x 5.5” x 5.5” space near the panel on drywall. In this section, the mounting plate for the Data Transmitter will be installed only. FWC installation will come at a later stage.

  1. Select location for mounting plate on dry wall near panel.
  2. Create a hole in the drywall large enough to allow the entire 3/4” conduit connector to pass through. NOTE: Hole should not be greater than 1.9” diameter.
  3. Look for an existing 3/4” knockout in the panel or create a new 3/4” knockout, using the knockout punch or a power drill with a hole cutter.
  4. Attach a 3⁄4” conduit connector to one end of conduit.NOTE: Conduit should be sized 4-6” longer than the required length to connect panel and drywall holes.
  5. Route conduit through drywall and secure connector to panel via locknut.NOTE: The free end of conduit should stick out of the drywall hole.
  6. Attach3/4”conduit connector to the free end of conduit.
  7. Fasten connector to the internal threads of the mounting plate.
  8. Once conduit is secured to the mounting plate, use 4 drywall screws and anchors to attach mounting plate onto drywall.

Voltage Taps

page-note p.6-7 (see manual)

Select one breaker per phase of panel to tap.

Using spare breakers
Using wired breakers
Using wired breakers
Using wall plug

If you do not have one spare breaker on each voltage phase, you will need to briefly shut down the voltage tap breakers to complete this step. Please confirm with building operators that this will not interfere with operations or safety protocols. Please follow local jurisdiction requirements for tap installs.

Please confirm with building operators that this will not interfere with operations or safety protocols. Please follow local jurisdiction requirements for tap installs.

If there are no spare breakers, you can power the system from a wall plug. Strip the cable, to identify neutral and power, you do not need ground. Please confirm with building operators and follow local jurisdiction.

Ensure the breakers are turned off. Connect 1 voltage tap cable to breaker.

Ensure the breakers are turned off. Connect 2 voltage tap cables to breakers.

A pulsing white light indicates that the system is properly installed and ready for commissioning.

The next step is to proceed with the commissioning process.

The system is emitting a wifi network your device can connect to in order to comission your system.

  1. Connect to the hotspot by selecting a wifi network called “Verdigris JBEXXXXXXXX”.

  2. Open any web browser, navigate to connect.verdigris.co, and follow the onscreen instructions.

  3. At the last step, select Wifi or 4G LTE network connectivity.
    • Wifi: Identify the network name and enter the password.
    • 4G/LTE: The system should connect automatically.
  4. Your system is commissioned and ready to save you money.

A pulsing red light indicates that the system has an error. Click here for details on service panel lights.

There is a break in CT chain 2. Properly connected CT LEDs will be blinking white; excess CT LEDs will be off.

In the example above there is a break between the 2nd and 3rd CTs on the left. This can be an issue with the start of the cable in the 2nd CT or at the connector in the 3rd CT.

Fix this connection issue by removing and adding back in the 2nd and 3rd CTs. If this issue persists please reach out to support@verdigris.co.
