RS485toMBus-XL, models 45, 80, 120, 190
RS485 to M-Bus communication converter
Remote data retrieval from M-Bus devices via the RS485 serial communication line in industry and building automation. The most frequently used M-Bus slave devices are heat, water and electricity consumption meters.
The RS485toMBus-XL converter provides a RS485 to M-Bus interface conversion. There is no change in the content of the messages or communication speed during the conversion. Depending on the converter model the maximum number of M-Bus slave devices that can be connected is 45, 80, 120 or 190.
The M-Bus converter features a processor controlled monitoring of internal state, power supply state and M-Bus line state. Operation and error states are indicated by status LEDs which simplify and make it easier to troubleshoot possible M-Bus communication errors.
Guarantee of quality
EMC compatibility of the M-Bus converter has been tested according to the following industrial environment standards.
* test carried out at the request of the manufacturer. The M-Bus port has an increased durability against overvoltage. Carrying out this type of test is not required with the use of shield cable.
