Deutsch Inline: This is a simple inline plug and play suppressor. Simply unplug the wire from your solenoid and plug this in.
DIN Pig Tail: In this case the connector is usually hard wired to the cable so you will have to chop off your old connector and wire the Genius one in.
Certain after market solenoid controls use a coil that does not have self contained surge suppression. The first time you active our Genius controller, you will left go of your button and the coil's magnetic field will collapse and will send a high voltage surge back into controller that is large enough to weld the outputs shut causing the controller to stay on all of the time.
Why does this happen? The coils being as large as they are is complete overkill for the operation. To keep costs down the manufacturers do not include surge suppression in the coil. For them it would only cost a few dollars. For us to do after the fact and be able to handle all of the different styles and ages of coils, that is another situation. It is costly and a lot of work on our end to be able to furnish these.
Genius suppressors are only required if your coils look like this. You will require one for each solenoid.
There may be a few types of connectors, but the main solenoid is about as large as your fist and will have some kind of cap. We have been unable to identify a manufacturer or part number from the ones that we have examined. We can only go by the general appearance.
If your solenoids look like this, you are fine and do not need a suppressor.
It is your responsibility to insure that you purchase a suppressor for each solenoid that requires one. Failure to do so will cause an immediate failure in the controller that is NOT covered under warranty.
