CY3272-HV PLC EVALUATION KIT
QUICK START GUIDE
Using the CY3272 High Voltage 110-240V AC PLC Evaluation Kit with the
PLC Control Panel Software Application
CAUTION: High Voltage (Risk of Electric Shock)
All work in powerline communications must be done with extreme care.
Caution must be exercised when using power supplies or power related equipment.
To evaluate this kit, a second PLC high voltage kit is required (CY3272 or CY3274). This guide assumes that two
CY3272 kits are available. If the CY3274 kit is used as the second kit, refer to the Appendix of the PLC Control
Panel GUI User's Guide for making the kit act as a CY3272. More information on the GUI is described in step 4
on page 2.

QUICK START GUIDE
1
Connect the power cable from the AC mains
to AC power connector on the first CY3272
board (node one). The blue LED turns on.
3
Attach one end of the USB-I2C Bridge to
header J5 on node one. With the mini USB
cable, connect the bridge to the PC. The
green LED must turn on. Connect a jumper
shunt to header J1 on the bottom of the bridge.
Note: If the USB-I2C bridge was shipped
before September 2011, connect only one
bridge for each PC. For more details, refer
to Section 1.3 in the PLC Control Panel
User's Guide.
2
Connect another power cable from the mains to
AC power connector on the second CY3272
board (node two). The blue LED turns on.
