If you have a Century V-Green 165 motor installed in your pool system, you can program it manually off the control pad mounted on the top of the motor. For greater convenience, you can install a Century VLink wireless interface to the 165 motor to program the 165 motor from your mobile smartphone. This interface will also allow you to change the operational settings and monitor energy usage in real time from your smartphone. This guide shows you how to install a VLink wireless interface to your VGreen 165 motor.
VIEW VLINK PACKAGE - The VLink package has everything you need to install a wireless interface between the VGreen 165 motor and a wireless system connected to a smartphone. In the package are the VLink Wireless Adapter, an RS-485 cable, two RS-485 connectors for the ends of the cable, a mounting bracket, and s conduit fitting to provide a waterproof port into the motor.
COLLECT TOOLS - a small Phillips head screwdriver, a medium Phillips head screwdriver, a pencil, and a drill with a carbide bit
SCREW ADAPTER INTO CONTROL PORT - The VGreen VS 165 motor has two electrical ports at the back of the motor. The right one provides access for the high voltage power to the motor. The left on provides access for the low voltage control of the motor. This is where the VLink interface will go. Remove the plug in the left port and attach the conduit adapter.
CONNECT WIRES TO A SECOND RS-485 - We will now attach the second RS-485 connector to the other end of the cable. Hold the connector with the wire terminals facing you. The sequence of the four wires from left to right is red, white, green and black. To attach each wire, insert the wire into the terminal and secure it by tightening the screw above it in a clockwise direction. Pull on each wire to make sure it is securely clamped onto the terminal.
