🪛Clyr Pressure Sensor

This tutorial shows you how to connect a Clyr Pressure sensor to a Clyr Controller.

RISK OF ELECTROCUTION AND SHOCK - before proceeding with this tutorial please seek advice or help from a certified electrician if you feel uncomfortable with any of the following steps as this tutorial involves working with potentially high voltages and current.

Tools Needed

Before we start hooking up your probe, you'll need the following tools:

  • A Clyr Lite or Clyr Controller

  • Clyr Pressure Sensor

  • (optional) 1/4 in. female MFF T

  • Teflon tape

  • Small flathead screwdriver

Step 1 - Connect your controller

Before you begin, please make sure you have powered on and connected your Clyr Controller.

Step 2 - Breaker off

Since we will be removing the pressure covering off of your current filter tank, it is important to turn the breaker off so that the pump doesn't accidentally turn on or start running.

Although this might seem overkill and stopping the pump might feel like enough, the top of the filter tank can be high pressure and we recommend turning the breaker off anyway.

Step 3 - Remove old analog guage

Unscrew the old analog guage and set it aside.

Step 4 - Install 1/4 inch T and pressure sensor

We're using a T so that we can connect both the analog and digital guage at the same time. Please add teflon tape to the thread and install on the filter tank.

Now, reapply teflon tape to the analog guage and the Clyr pressure sensor and screw them tight into the female ports of the T.

Step 5 - Wiring Clyr Controller

Now its time to make sure the colors match. If you haven't wired any existing equipment to the Clyr controller, it's a good idea to take our first available network using ports A1 and B1.

What are networks?

Wiring for the sensor is straightforward and should be:

  • Sensor Red -> Clyr Controller 12V

  • Sensor Green -> Clyr Controller A1 (or A2 if on network 2)

  • Sensor White -> Clyr Controller B1 (or B2 if on network 2)

  • Sensor Black -> Clyr Controller GND

Step 6 - Turn breaker back on

At this point, if the wires are tight and the colors match we're almost ready to add the probe in our app and test it out. Go ahead and turn the breaker back on and then we'll head to the app.

Step 7 - Add the sensor in app

You should have already added a Clyr Controller to your pool location in the app at this point. If you haven't check this out first:

If this has been done you can proceed. Go to your pool location and click "Settings"-> "Devices"-> "Add" -> "Pool Equipment". Once you're on the pool equipment page, we'll select a Filter Tank Pressure Sensor.

Note - you don't have to use this pressure sensor on the filter tank. These pressure sensors detect 0-50 psi and can be placed anywhere you want on the pool pad.

Once you select ph Sensor, we'll need to configure the sensor.

First, choose a name for the sensor.

Next, select either network "1" or "2" depending on if you wired the probe to A1/B1 or A2/B2 respectively.

Click Save and that's it. You should see the pressure sensor added in the app.

Once you have finished adding the ORP sensor and see it on the devices page, you're all set.

Step 8 - View sensor data

Once both the pressure sensor has been added in the app, you should be able to go to the "Equipment" tab in the app, hit the button "Refresh Data", and the values should be updated in a few short moments.

Next Steps

Now that your pump is online, you can do all sorts of great stuff like schedules, programs, autopilot and more. Check out those tutorials.

Troubleshooting

  1. I wired everything up but the sensors still don't show any data?

First, make sure all the probe wires are screwed in tight to the Clyr Controller.

Next, make sure that there is at least 9V of power to the Red and Black connectors on the probe. The probe needs at least 9 Volts of power to transmit readings to the Clyr Controller

Finally, make sure that you added the pressure sensor in the app on the correct RS485 network.
