Connecting SmartX Sensors to an MP Series Controller

You connect SmartX Sensors to an MP Series controller to provide the sensors with power and communication from the controller.

Show More
action_close

The MP Series controller sensor bus allows SmartX Sensors 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.

Note:

When connecting SmartX Sensors to the MP Series controller 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 SmartX 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 SmartX resistive temperature sensor is not designed to be connected to the sensor bus, but instead is connected to I/O points/terminals on the SmartX 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 eCommission Bluetooth Adapter to the SmartX Sensor for temporary commissioning and servicing only.

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

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

  • 3-button and touchscreen covers:

    • Up to two sensor bases with CO 2 option

    • Up to four sensor bases without CO 2 option

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

 
action_zoom_plus_stroke Examples with one SmartX Sensor and four SmartX Sensors connected to an MP Series controller in a daisy-chain configuration

Examples with one SmartX Sensor and four SmartX Sensors connected to an MP Series controller in a daisy-chain configuration

Each SmartX 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 SmartX Sensors .

Notice

LOSS OF COMMUNICATION

Ensure that the address DIP switches on the SmartX 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:

SmartX Sensors connected to the MP Series controller 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 directly to an external Ethernet switch or router.

Failure to follow these instructions can result in equipment damage.

To connect SmartX Sensors to an MP Series controller
  1. Install the SmartX 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 SmartX Living Space Sensor Base Installation Instructions .

    For more information, see SmartX Living Space LCD Temperature Sensor Installation Instructions .

  2. Connect the other end of the cable to the Sensor Bus port on the MP Series controller.

  3. When an additional SmartX 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 SmartX Sensors to the MP Series controller 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 SmartX Sensor.

     
    action_zoom_plus_stroke
  4. Repeat step 3 to install a third and fourth SmartX 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 SmartX Sensor are configured to give the sensor a unique address on the sensor bus.
