Connecting SpaceLogic Sensor Devices to an RP-C Controller

You connect SpaceLogic Sensor devices to an RP-C controller to provide the devices with power and communication from the controller.

Hide
Show More

The RP-C sensor bus allows SpaceLogic Sensor devices to be connected to the controller.

Notice

LOSS OF COMMUNICATION

  • Ensure that the total length of the sensor bus does not exceed 61 m (200 ft).

  • Use a Cat 5 or higher unshielded twisted pair cable with eight conductors (four twisted pairs), a cross-sectional area of 22 to 26 AWG (0.34 to 0.14 mm 2 ), and a rating that meets the requirements of the target environment.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in loss of communication.

By default, the RP-C controller's Sensor Bus port (RS-485 Com A) is configured and allocated for the sensor bus. For more information, see RP-C Communication Ports .

Note:

When connecting SpaceLogic Sensors to the sensor bus through a daisy-chain configuration, it does not matter if the incoming and outgoing cables are connected to one or the other sensor bus port on the SpaceLogic Sensor.

  1. The last character (“n”) of this model number indicates the housing: X (Medium matte white), W (Optimum glass white), or B (Optimum glass black).
  2. The SpaceLogic resistive temperature sensor is not designed to be connected to the sensor bus, but instead is connected to I/O points/terminals on the BACnet/IP controller using a two-wire connection.
  3. The fourth character (“n”) of this model number indicates the housing: S (Medium matte white), W (Optimum glass white), or B (Optimum glass black).
  4. The model number SXWSATXXXRXX is replaced by SLASXXX.
  5. Connect the SpaceLogic Bluetooth Adapter to the SpaceLogic Sensor for temporary commissioning and servicing only.

To summarize the power conditions, the sensor bus supports the following key SpaceLogic Sensor combinations:

  • Blank covers: Up to four sensors of any combination of sensor base types

  • 3-button and touchscreen covers: Up to four sensors of any combination of sensor base types

  • SpaceLogic LCD temperature sensors: Up to four sensors are supported

Examples with one SpaceLogic Sensor and four SpaceLogic Sensor devices connected to an RP-C controller in a daisy-chain configuration

Examples with one SpaceLogic Sensor and four SpaceLogic Sensor devices connected to an RP-C controller in a daisy-chain configuration

Each SpaceLogic Sensor has two 2-position DIP switches, which are used to give the sensor a unique address on the sensor bus. An incorrectly configured or improper DIP switch can cause two sensors to have the same address on the sensor bus, which means that both sensors will be offline. For more information, see SpaceLogic Sensors .

Notice

LOSS OF COMMUNICATION

Ensure that the address DIP switches on the SpaceLogic Sensor are configured to give the sensor a unique address on the sensor bus.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in loss of communication.

Note:

SpaceLogic Sensor devices connected to the sensor bus through a daisy-chain configuration can be assigned addresses regardless of the order in which the sensors appear in the daisy chain. For example, sensor number 1 can have the address 6, sensor number 2 can have the address 4, and so on.

Notice

LOSS OF COMMUNICATION

Locate the sensor bus wiring away from external electromagnetic noise sources such as high voltage cables and Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) for AC motors.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in loss of communication.

Notice

EQUIPMENT DAMAGE

Do not connect an Ethernet cable from the controller's Sensor Bus port (RS-485 Com A) or Room Bus port (RS-485 Com B) directly to an external Ethernet switch or router.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in equipment damage.

To connect SpaceLogic Sensor devices to an RP-C controller
  1. Install the SpaceLogic Sensor and connect a Cat 5 (or higher) unshielded, straight-through wired cable with eight conductors (four twisted pairs) to one of the two RJ45 receptacles on the sensor. Use a cable with the wire size (cross-sectional area) 22 to 26 AWG (0.34 to 0.14 mm²).

    For more information, see SpaceLogic Sensors - SXWS Sensor Base - Installation Instructions .

    For more information, see SpaceLogic Sensors - SXWS LCD Temperature Sensors - Installation Instructions .

  2. Connect the other end of the cable to the RP-C controller's RS-485 port that is configured for the sensor bus.

    Note:

    By default, the Sensor Bus port (RS-485 Com A) is configured for the sensor bus.

  3. When an additional SpaceLogic Sensor is needed, install the sensor and connect the other end of the cable to the unused RJ45 receptacle on the previous sensor.

    Note:

    When connecting SpaceLogic Sensor devices to the sensor bus through a daisy-chain configuration, it does not matter if the incoming and outgoing cables are connected to one or the other sensor bus port on the SpaceLogic Sensor.

  4. Repeat step 3 to install a third and fourth SpaceLogic Sensor, if the power constraints of the sensor bus allow this for the selected combination of cover and sensor base type.

  5. Ensure that the two 2-position address DIP switches on each SpaceLogic Sensor are configured to give the sensor a unique address on the sensor bus.
