Anodizing :

 

Install Guide :

Tools needed :

· Drill or screw driver

o Philips Head

o Star/Torx Head – Tx10 & Tx20

· 60mm Hole Saw

· Wire snips or wire cutters

· Sharpie

· Measuring tape

 

Step 1 :

Disassemble the Sunpower. Unscrew the sixteen torx/star head screws on the housing. This will detach the chassis from the housing and side caps. Next take the fan assembly off.

Slide the chassis out by disconnecting the main wiring from the terminals. You will only need the chassis for the rest of the install.

Step 2 :

Detach the ballast you’re taking out by pushing the white terminal tabs on the ballast. Then take the two Philips head screws out that are holding the ballast down. I prefer to take the ballast off that uses wires labeled 3 & 4 on the terminal. This is normally the center ballast.

Step 3 :

You will need to arrange the end caps so that they are grouped together. You will need to cut the jumper wires and use the provided terminals to connect them to the changed positioning.

Stock the bulbs are grouped together like so.

· 1 & 3

· 2 & 4

· 4 & 6

We will be changing it to this.

· 1 & 2

· 3 & 4 ( Empty if using six or eight bulb Sunpower )

· 5 & 6

 

If you ordered a dual heatsink kit you can skip this step. You will only take the ballast out that is connected to the 2 & 4 endcaps. This is the center ballast.

 

Step 4 :

Using a measuring tape mark the center of the unit. You will need to use the 60mm hole saw to drill the hole for the added fan.

 

If you are using the dual heatsink kit you will need to measure the center of the two bulbs you took out. Same size hole saw required.

Step 5 :

Using a sharpie mark the driver board and controller. You will need to use a 5/16” drill bit for these holes. Next using something low to scratch the chassis mark the mounting holes on the heatsink. Use the same drill bit for the holes.

Step 6 :

The controller cable will have seven total wires. Attach them to the driver board like so.

· Red

o SCW OUT +

· Black

o SCW OUT –

· Blue

o PWM 1 – Royal Blue Channel

· White

o PWM 2 – White Channel

· Orange

o PWM 3 – Violet Channel

· Green

o PWM 4 – Blue/Cyan

· Brown

o PWM 5 – Mint

Next connect the wiring from the Sunpower terminal 3 & 4 to the driver board POWER IN + and -.

· Terminal 3 – Power IN + ( Positive )

· Terminal 4 – Power IN – ( Negative/Neutral )

Step 7 :

Using the provided screws, stand offs and nuts to mount the controller and driver board to the chassis. Use the last two screws and nuts to mount the heatsink to the chassis. You do NOT need stand offs for the heatsink.

Step 8 :

Run the heatsink wiring through an existing hole or drill a small hole next to each array. This will run the wiring to the backside.

 

Connect the LED wiring to the driver board like so.

· Blue – Driver 1 +

· White – Driver 1 –

· Brown – Driver 2 +

· Green – Driver 2 –

· Purple – Driver 3 +

· Orange – Driver 3 –

· Yellow – Driver 4 +

· Grey – Driver 4 –

· Red – Driver 5 +

· Black – Driver 5–

 

This will arrange the LEDs in the following channels.

· Royal Blue

· White

· Violet

· Blue/Cyan

· Lime

Step 9 :

Connect the fan wiring to the terminals for the fans. The wiring on the Sunpower will be Red/Grey ( Positive/Negative ) or Brown/Grey ( Positive/Negative ). Connect the red wire to the positive and the black wire to the negative.

 

29324137873_451748a69f_c.jpgATIManualWired by David Fason, on Flickr

 

Step 10 :

Slide the Sunpower wiring into Sunpower housing wire hole. Connect the Sunpower wiring to the correct terminals. Each wire is numbered and will connect to the same numbered terminal. Wires 5/6 connect the fan like so.

 

Wire 5– Positive

Wire 6 – Negative

 

If the fans do not fire reverse above. I have seen it both ways.

 

Step 11:

Slide the chassis back in to housing and attach the torx/star screws back. Leave the end cap that has the controller on its side open until you connect/finish.

 

Step 12 :

The external black box will open. You will need to loosen the terminals connected to the number 3 , 4 and green wire. Take the AC cord connected to this out and connect the supplied cord like so.

· Red wire – Wire 3

· Black wire – Wire 4

 

Close the box.

 

Step 13 :

Connect to the controller using the Bluefish app. Follow this video link. Once connected attach the Sunpower end cap.
