AutoFlex Mini Connect II

Model: AFXMINICONNECT2
Your farm management solution

AutoFlex Connect II brings flexibility and versatility to your fingertips. With AutoFlex Connect II, you can control and manage ventilation, supplemental cooling, heating, lighting, feeding, and more.

Customizable to your farm operations

AutoFlex Connect II is modular and adapts to your needs, whether you are running a large operation with several dozen sites or a small facility with one or two buildings. With Phason’s AutoFlex Connect II, you can build out your control as you determine what additional inputs and outputs you need. AutoFlex Connect II becomes more economical as your operation expands.

Smart Modules are available to control variable or fixed-speed fans, air inlets, curtains, lighting, feed loops, and more. On the input side, you can choose to monitor conditions such as temperature, humidity, ammonia, carbon dioxide, and more.

One size does not fit all

Each farm has its own needs. With AutoFlex Connect II, you have two sizes of controls to choose from. This allows you to choose the right control for your application.

  • AFX-CONNECT2: 14 modules
  • AFXMINICONNECT2: 6 modules

Expansion Boxes are available to add additional capacity.

Remote connectivity

Network your AutoFlex Connect II controls using Ethernet or Wi-Fi and then access them from anywhere, using any web-enabled device. Monitor and analyze data in real-time or quickly respond to issues.

Leave the farm knowing that you are just a few clicks away from your controls. Relax knowing that if a problem occurs and an alarm is triggered, you will be immediately notified by text message or e-mail.

General

How big is the control?

The large enclosure version is 14.9 x 22 x 7.1 inches (37.8 x 55.9 x 18 cm). The small enclosure version is 11.85 x 11 x 3.95 inches (30 x 28 x 10 cm).

Does it have a manual override?

Yes. There is a software manual override that can be accessed from each output’s menu.

Can you connect multiple expansion boxes?

No. You can connect a maximum of one. It can be either an EXPANSION-6 or an EXPANSION-14. Module outputs can be connected to expansion boxes to expand their load capacity though. For example: An FD-1-14 or FD-2-7 FanDrive connected to a VDC-4 output, or a VLX-20 connected to a VAC-1 output.

How long is analytics data stored?

Analytics data is stored for 90 days. If you want to keep data older than this you can print to PDF or save as a CSV file.

Should I switch off the power to change modules?

Yes. You should fully power off the control before adding or removing modules.

What is the difference between the AutoFlex Connect and AutoFlex Connect II?

The AutoFlex Connect II comes with an upgraded touchscreen and new enclosure colour. The software is the same for both models. This means there is nothing new to learn when you upgrade to the new AutoFlex Connect II.

How do I access my unit remotely?

First, you must create a Phason Web Services account. After you have an account, go to your control and select Add User from Web Services. Enter your Web Services email address.

Installation

How can I have multiple temperature sensor readings averaged to create my group temperature?

All the temperature sensors that you assign to control an equipment group will be averaged to calculate that group’s reading.

How do I set up alerts/alarms?

You must individually configure the alarms for each piece of equipment. You must also set up the active time and communication methods in the Alert Schedule, found in the Administration menu.

Troubleshooting

Why is my group temperature reading higher than the average of my two sensor readings?

Check if there are other temperature sensors assigned to control that equipment group. A temperature sensor in a different room or an outdoor sensor could be incorrectly assigned to control for that group and is being added into the averaging calculation.
