Description

Eltek FP2 Monitor (Mono) is used to set the default start-up voltage of an Eltek FLATPACK2  24 V or 48 V Rectifier, and displays CAN bus data on a 1.5″ white OLED screen.

Skill level required: Medium
• Ability to solder connectors & wires
• Ability to drill, cut and file your enclosure’s front panel to mount the display

 

This product is not intended to simultaneously control multiple rectifiers, nor be an intelligent battery charger controller
This controller is powered directly by the Flatpack2 it is supervising

 

Ideal for permanent installation into your project.

Industrial grade Eltek Flatpack2 rectifiers make an ideal and robust power supply for amateur radio Solid State Power Amplifier projects.

 

CAN bus data displayed:

• PSU Serial Number
• Mode (Walk-in / Constant Volts)
• Intake temperature (°C or °F)
• Out temperature (°C or °F)
• Mains input voltage
• Output power (calculated)
• Output voltage
• Load current

Compatible with 24V and 48V Eltek rectifiers.

 

Display

• 1.5″ mono 4-wire I2C OLED screen
• Choice of two fonts
• M2 mounting hardware provided
• Voltage & current easily readable at a distance

Size comparison to Volts setter’s 0.96″ display:

 

Configuration Settings

Solder bridge links can be used to configure font, Celsius/Fahrenheit, and terminal baud rate.

Configuration – Font

Two crisp fonts available, Serif and Sans Serif.
• No link: Sans Serif (default)
• Link: Serif

 

Configuration – F  (Fahrenheit)

Self explanatory – see the difference in the photos on this page.
• No link: Celsius (default)
• Link: Fahrenheit

 

Configuration – Terminal Baud Rate

Set terminal baud rate to 19,200 or 57,600.
• No link: 57,600 (default)
• Link: 19,200

 

Setting Default Start-Up Voltage

Default start-up voltage is set using your favorite terminal program (Termite is suggested) running on your own PC/laptop temporarily connected to your FP2 Monitor via your own Micro USB cable.

Once the voltage has been set, USB cable can be disconnected and the terminal connection is no longer required.

 

 

SMPS Power Supply

Monitor has it’s own SMPS, and is powered directly from your Eltek’s DC output, so no need for an external 5V regulator.

Input capacitor is a quality Panasonic aluminium 100V electrolytic.

SMPS chip is MAX5035 (or MAX5033), rated to 76V input.

 

Hardware

Unlike Volts Setter, the 1.5″ OLED screen can be mounted (using supplied nylon M2 hardware) to your project’s front panel.

Controller board can be fastened to your project with supplied adhesive feet.
