MCS-H16 Control Unit

Product Code: UNI-HPC-002

£346.92 (Ex. VAT) £416.30 (Inc. VAT)

The high powered MCS-H16 can be configured for use as a single stand alone master controller or ganged up with other H16 units set up as slaves. Alternatively it can be used as a heavy duty expansion unit alongside a MCS-32, MCS-16 or MCS-8 control unit.

Although the MCS-H16 was primarily designed to be a high powered expansion unit (up to 120 Amps) for use with our popular range of MCS control units it is also extremely effective as a stand alone unit or ganged up with multiple units. This makes it ideal for use in larger installations where system intelligence is provided by an MCS-32, MCS-16 or MCS-8 and system expansion via the MCS-H16.

Device Outputs

Each MCS-H16 has:
• 12 Outputs
   Channels 1-12 are organised as 3 banks (A, B and C) of 4 Outputs.
   Each output can deliver 20 Amps and where the total for each group (A, B or C) collectively is 40 Amps each
• 2 High Current Outputs
   Channels 13 and 14 are dual polarity drivers capable of driving 40 Amps each, suitable for bi-directional motor control
• 2 Outputs
   Channels 15 and 16 are coupled outputs capable of driving 40 Amps each

Application Options

• Single MCS-H16 unit - Set up as a Master
• Single MCS-H16 unit - Set up as a Slave
• Multiple MCS-H16 units - Set 1 up as master, others as slaves
• Multiple MCS-H16 units - Set all up as slaves
• Single MCS-H16 unit + MCS-32 - Set all up as slaves
• Single MCS-H16 unit + MCS-16 - Set all up as slaves
• Single MCS-H16 unit + MCS-8 - Set all up as slaves



Note: Units can be supplied either set up as a Master or Slave unit. However, as with other MCS devices customers will be able to create their own configuration settings, and where for large volume applications Standby RSG can apply this pre-shipping and will allocate a unique part number. Also note the current available firmware can only support a gang of two Slaves, therefore if more are required bespoke firmware can be supplied by discussing specific applications with our technical department.

High Power Outputs

There are 12 positive switching outputs:

• The first 4 channels are banked collectively as Group A, and the second 4 channels are banked collectively as Group B and the last 4 channels are banked collectively as Group C.
• Each of these 12 outputs is independently capable of switching 20 Amps.
• Group A, B and C can source a maximum of 40 Amps each.
• Each channel can be programmed with individual over-current and under voltage protection.
• Channel 15 and 16 are coupled outputs capable of driving 40A each.
• Channel 13 and 14 are half bridge drivers also capable of driving 40A each.

Using the standard MCS Configurator software, the outputs can be configured for:

• Minimum Voltage Dropout. (Disables the output when the supply voltage drops below the set level)
• Maximum Current Protection (Disabled the output when the output current exceeds the set current level for a time period)
• Output Mode – A selection of flashing patterns is available:
- Steady On
- Alternating
- Multi Flash
- Penta Pulse
- Penta Pulse (With Pause)
- Cyclic
- Arrow\Direction
- Double Flash

• Mode Levels – each output has 3 Mode level which define a priority level for the selected switching conditions
- Mode Level 1 – Takes highest priority
- Mode Level 2 – Takes priority over Mode Level 3
- Mode Level 3 – Is the lowest priority

• Enable Inputs
- Up to 8 inputs can be selected to enable (turn on) the output. If ‘ANY’ of the enable inputs is active, the output can turn on.

• Inhibit Inputs
- Up to 4 inhibit inputs can be selected the inhibit the output. If ‘ANY’ of the inhibit inputs is active, the output will not be turned on. Inhibits take precedence over ‘Enables’

Diagnostics and Troubleshooting

16 x Diagnostic LED’s on the upper side of the unit that are used to assist installers and users to find faults and/or operational issues
• 1 x LED Power Monitoring
• 2 x LED’s for CAN Port Monitoring
• 13 x LED’s for monitoring Inputs and Outputs
