The Leopard II is Applied Digital Incís second generation of the highly successful Leopard touch screen home automation controller. The Leopard II is much more then a simple touch screen for
sending commands. It features a complete programming language allowing the user to execute tasks based on complex "If/Then" logic. Tasks can be activated not only from the touch screen but also by
various input and output sources, or programmed to execute automatically based on time or date criteria, or by any combination of these.
The screen can also display information acquired from
external sources or from internal calculations in the user program. An external computer can be connected to the Leopard II and information exchanged in real time between the two, allowing
expanded capabilities like web access and user created software applications to interface to the home automation system.
Finally, the Leopard II supports an ever growing list of expansion modules to add capabilities like reading digital and analog inputs, activate relays, measure temperatures, humidity, etc. and even have slave Leopard or Ocelot controllers to facilitate access to itís resources.
The Leopard II consists of a main central processing unit that holds the user program in non-volatile memory using flash-RAM technology. It has built in I/O interfaces for:
- X-10 devices. X-10 is a powerline communications protocol supported by multiple vendors of HA equipment.
- Infrared control. There is an Infrared (IR) receiver located on the front panel of the unit and an IR emitter can be connected to the I/O connector or jack to enable the controller to transmit IR
commands. An external IR receiver can also be used with the Leopard II (with the front panel IR receiver disabled).
- Serial port. The RS-232 serial port is used to load programs and other data into the Leopard II and also serves as an interface to any external computer program that supports the Leopard II as
an interface to a HA system.
- RS-485 expansion bus. The bus is used by the proprietary Adnet protocol to allow the Leopard II to communicate with the various expansion modules and slave controllers available from ADI.
Like all other ADI controllers, the Leopard II can be configured as either a master or slave controller.
- LCD Touch screen. This is certainly the most visible I/O part of the unit. The screen can display a mixture of user configured buttons with captions or graphic icons, virtual "status lights" to show the
status of an X-10 or I/O point, and also display text with variable output. Screen objects defined as buttons can be pressed by the user to trigger events within the user program.
If you are already familiar with the ADI Ocelot controller, then learning to use the Leopard II should be quite straightforward since the two controllers share the same basic processor and I/O core. You can think of the Leopard II as an Ocelot to which a touch screen has been added.
