KNX Modbus Gateway Screw Terminals and Connector

The KNX Modbus gateway (RP-C-EXT-KNX) is equipped with two 3-position pluggable screw terminal blocks for connection to the RP-C Modbus (RS-485) network and a 2-pole PCB connector for connection to the KNX bus.

You need to configure which RS-485 port (RJ45) on the RP-C controller to use for the Modbus network. You can configure to use either the RS-485 Com A port (default: Sensor bus) or RS-485 Com B port (default: Room bus). For more information, see RP-C Communication Ports .For more information, see Allocating Flexible Ports .

Note:

For the RP-C-12A-F-24V, RP-C-12B-F-24V, RP-C-12C-F-24V, and RP-C-16A-F-230V controller models, the rating for the RS-485 Com A port, the RJ45 pinout for the RS-485 Com B port, and the labeling of the two RS-485 ports differ between different hardware versions of the controllers. For more information, see Differences Between RP-C Hardware Versions .

Screw terminals

The upper and lower screw terminal blocks are used as follows:

  • Upper: Power input from the RP-C through the controller's RS-485 port

  • Lower: Communication with the RP-C over the controller's Modbus network

Note:

The RS-485 Power Adapter (SXWNISORS485P10001) can be used to convert an RP-C controller's RS-485 port RJ45 interface to screw terminals. The adapter has a screw terminal for 24 VDC to support power supply from the controller to a device on the RS-485 based network. For more information, see Convert a BACnet/IP Controller RS-485 Interface .
