Power supply

The power supply of the SiteManager is exclusively provided by external power supplies 24VDC / 0.5A. The integrated redundancy module offers the possibility to supply the SiteManager with two external power supplies. The power supply units are connected to the power supply connections on the SiteManager via a plug connector (WAGO part number: 714-102).

Installation options

The SiteManager offers various mounting options such as DIN rail mounting on 35 mm DIN rail or installation in a 19″ IT rack with one height unit.
Mounting on top-hat rails TH 35-7.5 and TH 35-15 is done via the integrated quick mounting bracket on the back of the housing.
For the installation of the SiteManager in a 19″ IT rack, the supplied mounting brackets are required. These are screwed to the side of the housing with four M3x5 pan head screws. A screwdriver with TX10 hexagon socket is required for this purpose. In addition, the supplied Velcro strips for cable routing can be attached to the mounting brackets.
