The RP controller room bus allows RP controller expansion modules to be connected to the controller for people counting, motion detection, luminosity and sound pressure level measurements, Bluetooth Low Energy based applications, and control of electric lights and window blinds.
The DALI light modules have four DALI inputs/outputs, which are designed for control and power supply of DALI light control gear such as lights with electronic ballasts, LED drivers, and other control gear with DALI interface as well as connection of DALI input devices such as sensors and push-buttons. Outputs not used for DALI lighting control can instead be configured and used for relay control of non-DALI lights on/off.
The RP-C-EXT-DALI-M-PD light module connects to the RP-C room controllers and provides I/O expansion for lighting control with DALI (Digital Addressable Lighting Interface).
The wiring recommendations for the communication ports on the automation servers, RP and MP controllers, IP-IO and RP-IO modules, RP controller expansion modules, and Operator Display devices apply to wires and cables used for RS-485 communications, LonWorks communications, USB connections, Ethernet connections, sensor bus connections, room bus connections, and RP and MP controller Modbus network connections. Always use the recommended cables and wires.
You connect RP controller expansion modules to the RP controller room bus to provide the devices with power and communication from the controller.
You remove an external connector from an RP controller expansion module to disconnect lights, blinds, dry contact digital inputs, or AC power from the module. You remove an external connector from an RP-C-16C-F-230V controller to disconnect 230 VAC power from the controller, to disconnect an external 24 VAC/VDC power supply, or to disconnect equipment controlled via the SSR outputs and/or universal inputs/outputs.
You plug an external connector into an RP controller expansion module to connect lights, blinds, dry contact digital inputs, or AC power to the module. You plug an external connector into an RP-C-16C-F-230V controller to connect 230 VAC power to the controller, to connect an external 24 VAC/VDC power supply, or to connect equipment to be controlled via the SSR outputs and/or universal inputs/outputs.
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 and RP-IO I/O 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.
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 and RP-IO I/O 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 and the RP-C-16C-F-230V model. Always use the recommended cables and wires.
