Robo-Tank Heavy Duty DC Accessory Expansion

This expansion allows you to connect 4 additional DC accessories to Robo-Tank, anything that runs using 6-24v DC power such as fans, valves and pumps. The output for each port can be controlled through the controller user interface which is useful to slow down fans and pumps. Each port can run continually at 5 amps and the continual maximum for the board is 10 amps between the 4 ports. 

There's an on board microcontroller so no load is placed on the controller and each DC accessory has it's own 2 pin port and includes plugable screw terminal connectors which makes for easy connections. Like all others expansions it seamlessly integrates with Robo-Tank, you can control any of the ports using custom rules, schedules, feed mode and maintenance mode, just like the default ports on the controller. 

The expansion is constructed using high quality components, each port is protected against transient voltage surges and reverse voltage and is packaged in a quality 3D printed case with a custom front face plate to give it that finished look. Simply plug it into a USB port on the controller or piggy back off any other expansion and plug in an external power supply. It also has a spare USB port at the back to connect another expansion.

LED Outlet Indicators

Never be left guessing, each port has an LED indicator so you always know if a port is on or off, this is handy feature that is often overlooked. There's two additional LED's on the side, one is lite when the expansion is powered and the other LED will flash when it communicates with the controller.


Energy Monitoring

This feature won't be available until the controller software is updated, it could be 6 months away but the hardware will be compatible, as always software update are free and only the controller will require the update. When enabled you'll be able to monitor power consumption on each port using graphs etc. There will also be alerts to help detect faulty equipment.


Compatibility

All Robo-Tank expansions are fully compatible with any microcontroller that has an I2C bus such as any Arduino or Pi. There will be an open source Arduino library available in the future so you can be up and running in no time with your own project.

1 Year Warranty

Like the other industry leading competitors you can be at ease with your Robo-Tank Expansion as its comes with a 1 year warranty, if anything fails simply contact us and ship it back and it'll be repaired or replaced in a timely fashion. Please note the warranty doesn't cover abuse or water damage and is not transferable.
