PowerLink 4 (North America)
About This Product
What switches can be used with the PowerLink 4?
The PowerLink 4 can be used with up to two wired switches and eight AbleNet wireless switches.
Why is my PowerLink 4 not operating my appliance?
In order to use the PowerLink 4 with an appliance such as a fan, blender, mixer, or lamp, you will need to be sure it has a mechanical switch that allows the device to remain on. The best way to test this is to turn the appliance on, unplug it from the wall, and then plug it back in. If the appliance continues to work, you will be able to connect it to the PowerLink 4 for switch activation.
How many amps can the PowerLink 4 handle?
The PowerLink 4 is rated to handle up to 15 amps (max).
Can I use one switch for an operation type and another switch for a different operation type?
The PowerLink 4 has six modes of operation, (Direct, Latched, Time Minutes, Timed Seconds, Count and Two-Switch). Each mode selected is used for all switches connected to the PowerLink 4 at one time.
However, you can connect additional devices, such as the Dual SLAT or Wireless SLAT, to accomplish this configuration. To do this, follow these steps:
- Connect one switch to either side of the PowerLink 4.
- Connect the Dual SLAT or Wireless SLAT to the other side and connect a switch to be used with it.
- Set the mode setting for the PowerLink 4 for the chosen mode of operation for the first switch.
- Set the mode setting for the Dual SLAT or Mini Beamer Receiver for the chosen mode of operation for the second switch.
