    Intellicenter. connectivity NO POWER MODULE needed

    Please know there are new intellicenters. Pentair has not trained technicians about newer connections. You do not need the power adapter module. You use the tan ethernet cord. but you dont use some of the other connectors they included in the package. Their install literature is not accurate. I...

    Pentair Intellicenter Connection

    i attached a pic of the tranceiver (on side of house in an oval housing). I just noticed a connection spot for cat5 looks like which should run through conduit to the intellicenter and connect to the black pigtail that connects to the board in the center and the tiny pin connects...

    Pentair Intellicenter Connection

    Here is a pic of extra things that may need a connection or place to make this all work. The electricians did not use these pieces. Where do they go? my old cat5 cord does not work wired from attic, used new one provided after rewiring my entire house to accommodate the short cat5 wire...

    I added the pic with cat5 in the ethernet plug in and holding the pig tail black wire, that has a very small pin connector on one side and an ethernet connector on the other side of it. Is this supposed to go somewhere?

    Pentair Intellicenter Connection

    Moved from here. Bought intellicenter item number 521907 personality kit ips5 with two actuators. There was not protocol adapter with the kit. I. Understand with the newest system there is not a need for this $500 part. However two technicians have been out and said all they have every seen...

    Intellicenter Wifi

    I think I am in the same boat. I can not get the panel to log me in as a new user. my panel is just not connected to internet at all I don't think. I have the indoor receiver hard wired to router. I read about 5.2 hz vs 2.4 hz. forgive the incorrect labels but anyway , the need to tweek the...

    Intellicenter hook up

    I am getting conflicting information about the intellicenter. Does it require the $500 protocol adapter that does not come with the personality kit or not. I understood that the adpater was for screen logic that went with the Easytouch. in other workds: Easytouch and screen logic go...

    any updates on heater and intellicenter manufacturing?

    Is it because there is a computer chip or something needed coming from China? or computer chip, like the car industry that heater and intellicenter manufacturers need? We have decided to set pad for heater, but bypass for now. I am assuming the electrician can also bypass the intellicenter, and...

    Any reason to not go with generic plain white plaster?

    We are building ourselves. and will hire the plaster professionals. I want plain white plaster so that if here are any issues later on, we can get the plaster and make repairs ourselves. I just want a pool, color is irrelevant to me. Do not want pebbles finish due to texture. Thanks for any...
