Installation

Installation Guide

Please follow the instructions and labeling included with your device.

Installation Notes

Autelis Pool Control is compatible with Pentair Intelliflo® pumps.

This product is designed for indoor installation and the enclosure supplied is not waterproof.

If your system wiring is vulnerable to power surges caused by lightning strikes then installing a lightning isolation device is recommended. Damage due to lightning surges is not covered under the product warranty.

Connection to Intelliflo® Pumps

Autelis Pool Control interfaces directly to your existing pumps and does not require any additional interface or protocol adapters. Installation requires connection to the 2-wire equipment bus on your Pentair Intelliflo® pumps. This 2-wire bus requires the Pentair Intelliflo® communication cable. Please refer to the installation manual for your Intelliflo® pump for more information on connecting the communication cable and be sure to follow all safety procedures described therein. Once you have familiarized yourself with the Intelliflo® hardware, follow the diagram on the label on your device to match the terminals on the connector with the correct bus wires which are designated by color (Yellow, Green). NOTE: It is important to make sure your communication cable is properly seated at the pump for a reliable connection.

Connection to Chlorinator

This feature is in development. Contact customer service for more information. Autelis Pool Control interfaces directly to a chlorinator using the same 2-wire bus used to connect to your pumps. Follow the instructions supplied with your chlorinator for connecting to a Pentair control system. The Yellow and Green connections will go to your Autelis device. The Red and Black connections may require a separate DC power supply of 9-12V, depending on your chlorinator model.

Connection to Network

Installation requires connection to your network router or switch which supports 10Base-T Ethernet. Connect the built-in ethernet port to your network device using the included cat-5 cable or a standard cat-5 networking cable of your choice. You may also use a wireless bridge or a Powerline network device to provide the network connection. The Pool Control device will obtain an IP address automatically via DHCP.

Connection to Power

Connect the included power adapter to the device and plug it into a standard wall outlet. When plugged in, the green LED on the ethernet port will blink for 5 seconds and then the device will boot normally.

Hardware Notes

Model XN200 - The unlabeled black RJ45 port and micro USB port on the device are not usable in this configuration. Please do not connect anything to these ports.

Web Interface

To access the web interface type 'http://poolcontrol' into your browser. This may not work with all routers and network configurations (see below hint). You can also type the IP address of the Pool Control device which can be found in your router interface by matching an IP address from the table with the MAC address printed on the bottom of the device or by using an IP scanner tool to search by MAC address. Log in using the username 'admin' and the default password 'admin'.

More Help: Find Your Device on Your Network

Windows Hint: In your network connection properties under TCP/IPv4 properties, click the advanced button. In the DNS tab, select "Append these DNS suffixes (in order)" and click add and enter "." (a single period with no quotes). This may allow you to use the poolcontrol name instead of an IP address.

System Information

This page displays basic system information.

Software Version
The software version of the Autelis Pool Control device. This information is not related to the Intellitouch® or EasyTouch® software version.
Time
The current time value from the Autelis Pool Control device, adjusted for your computer's local time settings. This information is not related to the time kept by the Intellitouch® or EasyTouch® system.

Pumps

This page displays the current status and controls for up to 4 Intelliflo® pumps.

Each pump can be controlled remotely by selecting one of the 4 "External Control" program speeds. These speeds can be configured using the menu interface on the Intelliflo® pump. Please consult the Intelliflo® product manual for more information. The pump must be in "Run" or "Start" mode to accept these external commands. The pump's built in timers and schedules can still function independently from the external control features, however the external commands will override them. For Intelliflo VF, to disable the pump's built-in timers and schedules set the filter cycle to start and end at the same time.

Chemistry

This page displays the current status and controls for a chlorinator. Please note that pump #1 must be running for the chlorinator to be active.

HTTP Commands

Pumps

You can retrieve the pump status information in XML format at http://poolcontrol/pumps.xml or http://device.ip.address/pumps.xml

The XML response will look like:

<response>
<pumps>
<pump1>0,0,0,0,0</pump1>
<pump2></pump2>
<pump3>0,0,0</pump3>
<pump4>0,0,0</pump4>
</pumps>
<prog>0,0,0,0</prog>
</response>

Pump fields will either return 3 or 5 comma separated status values, depending on the pump model. If a pump is not configured it will return an empty value. The possible values are [ Watts, RPM, Errors ] or [ Watts, RPM, GPM, Filter Percentage, Errors ]. A nonzero value for Errors indicates a pump error is present.

The prog field will return 4 comma separated values that represent the currently selected program for each pump (0=stop, 1-4 = program 1-4). A value will be returned for each pump even if the pump is not configured.

To activate and deactivate the manual speed programs use the following command:

http://poolcontrol/pump.cgi?num=1&val=0 or http://device.ip.address/pump.cgi?num=1&val=0
num=1 to 4 (pump number), val=0 to 4 (0=stop, 1-4 = program speeds)

These commands require a valid HTTP Basic Authorization header to be submitted with the command.

Chlorinator

You can retrieve the chlorinator status information in XML format at http://poolcontrol/chem.xml or http://device.ip.address/chem.xml

The XML response will look like:

<response>
<chlor>
<chloren>1</chloren>
<poolsp>50</poolsp>
<salt>80</salt>
<chlorerr>0</chlorerr>
</chlor>
</response>

The fields are as follows:

chloren = 1 if enabled, 0 if disabled
poolsp = the chlorinator setpoint percentage (0-100, 101 for boost)
salt = the salt level, multiply by 50 to get PPM
chlorerr = chlorinator error bitflags (0 for no errors)
