We will use this workshop to demonstrate how relays and contactors are used. The properties of each application also involve corresponding requirements on the switching components. Knowing all about the application is essential for optimal dimensioning.

Open the device manager. This cannot be found using the same path for each Windows operating system. You can search for “Device manager” directly in the search field via [START]. A yellow exclamation mark at the interface of the USB converter means that no suitable driver was found/installed. This means that you can search for the suitable driver manually and install it via right mouse click @ Features @ Driver @ Update driver. The yellow exclamation mark disapears after the successful installation.
First perform a diagnosis using the programme environment “FastSMSSet”. An error code is displayed in the field “Error code”. This is described in the data sheet along with the necessary action.
This can be due to the following; Wrong telephone number on file, no reception, SIM card blocked, no credit on the SIM card, communication error.
There are several reasons why the switching of the outputs fails: No reception, SIM card blocked, telephone number not registered in the telephone book in FastSMSSet (only if number recognition is activated).
25m. This is the maximum lengthe we recommend. This results from the external beam antenna, which already has a 5 m cable, plus 20 m extension cable = 25 metres. Of course the anntenna can be extended further, however, this results in the GSM signal being damped further with each coupling piece and so the reception becomes worse. If there is already not a good GSM signal at the location it will be difficult to create a steady connection.
This indicates that the wrong Java version is being used. It is very likely that a 64-bit Java version is installed on your computer. However, the software “FastSMSSet” requires a 32-bit Java, which can be downloaded free of charge on the foolowing homepage and installed: www.java.com
Remove the blue cover to reveal two buttons to the left of the SIM cardholder (Reset and Test). Push both buttons simultaneously and hold them pressed for approx. 30 seconds. The flashing pattern of the LEDs will change when the process was successful.
ATENTION: The configuration in the SMS relay is lost during this process and must be reloaded.
The buffer storage of the SMS relay could be full. The device should be sent in for an inspection/repair.

WE ARE ON TRACK … check our new transportation & railway catalogue – products designed and tested to comply with relevant standards.
All actions are recorded and stored on the log file. This file is often required by CometReleco Support to understand what precisely is happening at the SMS relay.
This log file can be retrieved when the computer is connected to the SMS relay. A diagnosis is performed, a button with “Log file” is now visible in the newly opened window (only from FastSMSSet version 4.0.0)
The CWS port www.sms-relay.com is a port used for the remote servicing of the Comat SMS relays types CMS-10F, CMS-10ADF and CMS-10ACDF. CWS stands for Comat Web Services and includes services that deal with automation via the internet.
Create an account on the page www.sms-relay.com assign your SMS relay to the account. When connecting for the first time, an APN is queried, select your provider on the SIM card. Your provider is not listed? Then add it yourself manually (attention: APN data must be correct otherwise the connection can never be created).
Supported devices: CMS-10F, CMS-10ADF and CMS-10ACDF as of firmware version 7.0.0. Notes on the firmware of your device can be found on the front os the SMS relay below the SIM cardholder. Devices with firmware older than 7.0.0 are not supported by the functions of the CWS port.
Load to be switched?
Switching small signals, what do I have to pay attention to?
A further possibility in addition to the mechanic relays is to use a semiconductor relay. The CSS series by ComatReleco can switch reliably already with currents from 1mA (DC) and 35mA (AC).
Which function is required?
Which partial time range must it be possible to set?
The process is the same for almost all time relays. First you select a function via the potentiometer. Each letter (A, E, W, K, usw.) stands for a specific function, which is described on the side of the relay or in the instruction leaflet.
Next you select the partial time range. The selected range always equals the maximum value. The fine tuning of the time is set with the last potentiometer. For example, this is how to set a 30 second switch delay:
Partial time range: 60 seconds
Fine tuning: Then the potentiometer is set to 3 on a scale from 0-6 (6=60 seconds, 3=30 seconds, 1=10 seconds)

The sockets C12B0 and CS-155 (S5-M) have a module recess, which is intended to be used for time modules/monitoring modules. So you merely require a monitoring module, which is plugable, in addition to a socket and an industrial relay. However, these current and/or voltage monitoring modules are only available for DC current!
Current transformers are required to measure currents larger than 5A, which are specified in a secondary circuit with 5A. This means that high currents can also be measured, however this also means that the “scaling factor” must be adjusted in settings.
High inrush currents are typical for electronic ballast units, modern LED fixtures, energy-saving bulbs or power packs. These values can reach up to 250 times the nominal current. ·ComatReleco offers special relays for high inrush currents:
The series connection of resistor and capacitor means that the current can die away suring the switching off process in a damped oscillation. During the switching on process the resistor prevents the full capacitor load discharging over the switching contact. The suppressor circuit using an RC link is very well suited to alternating currents. In addition, the deenergisation is immediate.
Free wheeling diodes protect against voltage spikes when the supply current of an inductive DC load is suddenly switched off. To this purpose the diodes are connected parallel to the inductive DC consumers, so that they are used by the supply voltage in theblocking direction. Afrer the supply current has been switched off the self-induction of the coil ensures that the current continues to flow in the original direction. Without a free wheeling diode, this would result in a voltage spike that adds to the operating voltage and could damage or destroy the switching path. However, with a free wheeling diode, the voltage spike is limited to the forward voltage of the diode (for silicon about 0.7 V). This protects the electronic components, but also the switching contacts, very effectively against voltage spikes.
If both control inputs of a remanent relay are on at the same time then A1 (ON) always has priority over A3 (OFF)
Many vital items of equipment are driven with standard asynchronous motors. These are reliable and long-lasting, frequently removing the need for costly control systems using frequency converters and the like. With rather larger drives, the star delta starter or a simple softstarter (e.g. from ComatReleco’s CTC, CCC, CCM product family) is usually sufficient both to master the inrush peak in order to meet the technical requirements of energy suppliers, and also to avoid mechanical stresses such as those on joints, V-belts, etc.

In response to violence and human rights violations in the mining of certain minerals from the “Conflict Region”, which is situated in the eastern portion of the Democratic Republic of the Conga (DRC) and surrounding countries, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has adopted rules to implement reporting and disclosure requirements related to “conflict minerals,” as directed by the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010.
The rules require manufacturers who file certain reports with the SEC to disclose whether the products they manufacture or contract to manufacture contain “conflict minerals” that are “necessary to the functionality or production” of those products.
The definition of “conflict minerals” refers to gold, as weil as tin, tantalum, and tungsten, the derivatives of cassiterite, columbite-tantalite, and wolframite, regardless of where they are sourced, processed or sold. The U.S. Secretary of State may designate other minerals in the future.
We support the humanitarian goal of ending violent conflict in the DRC and surrounding countries.
We are committed to the responsible sourcing of “conflict minerals” throughout our supply chain and to continuing to comply with the underlying SEC rules and regulations surrounding “conflict minerals”.
