The RP-C provides the following combination of communication ports:
You wire the screw terminals on the RP-C to connect I/O devices and power. Always use the recommended wires (or wires with larger cross-sectional area).
You connect SpaceLogic Sensor devices to an RP controller to provide the devices with power and communication from the controller.
You connect RP controller expansion modules to the RP controller room bus to provide the devices with power and communication from the controller.
The Status LED on the front of the automation devices changes color and flashes to indicate the status of the device.
You perform the following steps to power up an RP-C 230 V controller model.
This section provides recommendations on minimum wire sizes (cross-sectional areas) and maximum wire lengths for the wires connected to the screw terminals of Central IO modules, AS-B servers, RP and MP controllers, and IP-IO modules. Recommendations on minimum wire size and maximum cable length for the digital inputs of the RP controller expansion modules, the DALI bus of the DALI light modules, the SMI Interface of the SMI blind modules, the Zigbee DALI and 0-10V modules, and the KNX Modbus gateway are also provided. The recommendations are for guidance only. Other wire sizes and lengths may be used, depending on wiring rules and when appropriate.
This section provides the RJ45 pinout for the RP-C controller's two RS-485 ports.
The I/O wiring recommendations provide guidance on what type of wires should be used for the different Central IO modules, AS-B server onboard I/O, RP and MP controller onboard I/O, and IP-IO modules, how to perform grounding, and how to connect different external devices to the inputs and outputs. This section also provides information on the external connectors required for the RP controller expansion modules. Always use the recommended cables and wires.
It is important to perform the grounding correctly for the following reasons:
