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 wiring recommendations for the communication ports on the automation servers, BACnet/IP devices, 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 controller Modbus network connections. Always use the recommended cables and wires.
The Schneider Electric SpaceLogic hardware devices for the EcoStruxure BMS include terminal bases, PS-24V power supplies, Central IO modules, automation servers such as AS-P servers and AS-B servers, BACnet/IP devices such as MP-C controllers, MP-V controllers, IP-IO modules, and RP-C controllers, RP controller expansion modules, remote control, KNX Modbus gateway, Bluetooth adapter, Wireless Adapter - Advanced, SpaceLogic Sensor devices, Advanced Display devices, and Operator Display devices.
The RP-C-EXT-MS-BLE multi-sensor connects to the RP-C room controllers and is used for infrared motion detection and luminosity measurements. The multi-sensor supports Bluetooth Low Energy based applications such as beaconing and remote control communication.
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, and BACnet/IP devices. 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, and the Zigbee DALI and 0-10V modules are also provided. The recommendations are for guidance only. Other wire sizes and lengths may be used, depending on wiring rules and when appropriate.
