The In/Out system can be permanently installed on a court with current coming from a power outlet.
This page contains three sections:
Each section covers both the Net Device and the Line Device.
How to install the devices permanently?
A Net Device can be permanently installed on a net post with the In/Out cage. Read the cage installation manual of the cage here.
Line Devices should be installed along each monitored line.
|8 LINE DEVICES (SINGLE): Around the net||8 LINE DEVICES (SINGLE): In the back|
|You can put the Line Devices around the net for the single side lines||You can put the Line Devices in the back for the single side lines|
Read this section for more information about how to figure out where to position the Line Devices.
How to install current supply to the devices?
In/Out fixed installation kit provides the following elements:
Here are two examples of connecting the Net Device and the Line Device.
Tip: Once your installation is finished, you can recover the transparent screw connector with hot glue to make it waterproof.
In/Out doesn't provide the following two elements that you will need:
Note: You do NOT need to solder anything. Only a screwdriver is needed for the installation with the fish tape mentioned above.
The Net Device draws around 2A~2.5A. The Line Device draws around 0.3A. The following setup for 2 Net Devices and 8 Line Devices with 3 DC adapters is recommended:
For powering the second Net Device, you need to pass the power cable inside the band of the net. Use a fish tape for this operation. Here is a video how to use a fish tape.
Note: Make sure to leave the battery inside the Net Devices.
In order to provide current to the Line Devices, you will have to "split" / to "branch" the brown power cable in a 'Y' form. Use the following connector to do that:
Note: You should not have any battery in the Line Devices as the power cable is providing enough current to the Line Devices.
How to configure the devices in auto-start mode?
You should read the Net Device software page.
A Net Device can be put in auto-start mode so that it auto-calibrates and goes into linecalling mode when it's powered on. Go to Settings->advanced and press long on the Line Call icon.
You should read the Line Device software page.
A Line Device can be put in auto-start mode so that it auto-calibrates and goes into linecalling mode when it's powered on. Press both side buttons when the device starts. You will be asked the following questions:
Then, properly configured the Line Device for the monitor line.
Note: In case the auto-start mode is used, it's important that the lights are fully on when the devices start. The devices need good light conditions to calibrate themselves. So when you enter your court, power on the lights if needed, and then switch on the power outlet of In/Out.
