UniPi Axon S605 is a control unit featuring four IEC 62386 channels for controlling intelligent digital lighting systems. The standard is compatible with DALI.
Note: The S605 model does not have software support at the moment and is suited primarily for software developers.
UniPi Axon S605 is a PLC designed for lightning control in building automation projects. The IEC 62386 bus is compatible with DALI™ and is used primarily for lighting control. A single channel can control up to 64 lights via 2-wire bus. Lights can be controlled individually, in groups or all at once. It is also possible to control dimming or to apply lighting presets. Each channel then can communicate in parallel independently. The operating voltage for the signal is defined as 0+/- 4.5V for a 0 and 16+/-6.5V for a 1.

As a computing module, the Axon controllers use an industrial computer featuring a quad-core, 1.2GHz Alwinner H5 CPU and 1GB RAM, giving Axons an excellent performance. The 8GB onboard eMMC memory then offers better reliability compared to systems relying on microSD memory cards.
Axon controllers are by default provided with RS485 serial lines. This type of interface usually uses the Modbus RTU protocol and can be used to communicate with various devices such as Extension xS extension modules, energy meters, touchscreen HMI displays, controllers from other vendors, various sensors etc. A single bus can support dozens of devices while the bus' length can reach up to several hundred meters.
A single 1-Wire bus is also featured on selected models. This interface uses 2-3 conductors for collecting data from various 1-Wire sensors such as thermometers, humidity meters, light intensity sensors etc.). A single 1-Wire bus supports up to 15 devices, the overall length of the bus can reach up to 100 meters.
Selected models also feature a single RS232 serial line. In the field of automation, this interface is usually used for communication with various converters, closed-in technologies or display devices such as HMI panels.
All Axon models also feature a single 1Gbit Ethernet port for network communication.
All components of the controller are encased within a durable aluminium chassis (IP20 protection). The controller is designed for mounting on a standard DIN rail (35 mm).
