a bus based building automation system. Control
modules are installed into wall switch or distribution
boxes to tap AC lines. Once connected each module can begin
transmitting and receiving commands in a network automatically
formed with other modules.
a 4-wire (or more) AC cable should be installed. One of these
extra wires is
then used solely for data transfer between modules.
Bus modules are units that
are responsible for the data transfer from one unit to another.
Each Bus module is connected directly to phase (L1, L2; L3/X,Y, Z),
neutral and the extra data wire. Bus Modules feature:
- Microprocessor controlled
and actor combined in one unit
- 2 independent
power outputs ranging from 250VA to 2000VA
can be operated as switch or dimmer
- Up to
3 extension ports: T-port
for sensors (light, temp., etc.), I-port
for pulses (IR Remote Control, wind speedometer, keyless entry
system, etc.) and P-port for
relay blocks (digital output) and binary input
functions include: Counting,
Timer, Logic control, Digital
Control. The same applies to any step-by-step extensions which may become necessary
in the future.
