The Isolated RS-485 Adapter (SXWISORS48510001) is used when connecting a BACnet/IP controller that supports reconfiguration for BACnet MS/TP communication to a BACnet MS/TP (RS-485) network. The Isolated RS-485 Adapter has an isolated RS-485 transceiver and is used when the BACnet MS/TP (RS-485) network is comprised of isolated controllers, such as MNB BACnet devices (zone controllers) and selected others.

Isolated RS-485 Adapter

The adapter converts the BACnet/IP controller RS-485 Com port RJ45 interface to screw terminals, which is required to be able to connect the controller to a BACnet MS/TP network and the RS-485 Com port screw terminals of an automation server.

A separate connection cable is required to connect the adapter to the controller. The cable is not included and needs to be purchased separately.

The RS-485 Adapter can be used with BACnet/IP controller models that support reconfiguration for BACnet MS/TP communication. For more information, see SpaceLogic RS-485 Adapters .

The BACnet/IP controller needs to be reconfigured to communicate with automation servers based on the BACnet MS/TP protocol, instead of the BACnet/IP protocol. For more information, see RP-C BACnet MS/TP Support .

RS-485 Adapter Device Installation

The RS-485 adapter has a protruding bracket on each long side with a mounting hole to facilitate installation of the device with two screws (not included). The device can also be fastened using cable ties or mounted in line with a cable run. The RS-485 adapter is suitable for plenum use.

For more information, see Installing an RS-485 Adapter .

Isolated RS-485 Adapter Connection and Wiring

The Isolated RS-485 Adapter is equipped with an RJ45 port for connection to a BACnet/IP controller RS-485 Com port and a 4-position removable screw terminal block for connection to a BACnet MS/TP (RS-485) network.

For more information, see Isolated RS-485 Adapter Connection and Wiring .

The Non-isolated RS-485 Adapter (SXWNISORS48510001) is used when connecting a BACnet/IP controller that supports reconfiguration for BACnet MS/TP communication to a BACnet MS/TP (RS-485) network. The Non-isolated RS-485 Adapter is used when the BACnet MS/TP (RS-485) network includes non-isolated controllers, such as the b3 BACnet family of zone controllers.

Note:

The Non-isolated RS-485 Adapter (SXWNISORS48510001) is also used when connecting an RP or MP controller that supports Modbus communication to a Modbus RTU subnetwork.

To install an RS-485 adapter
  1. Refer to the dimensional drawing before installing the RS-485 adapter.

     
    action_zoom_plus_stroke
  2. Ensure that you have the proper mounting hardware and anchoring system.

  3. Find a suitable location and surface on which to mount the RS-485 adapter.

  4. Hold the RS-485 adapter against the surface and mark the place where the two drill holes should be on the surface.

  5. Fasten the RS-485 adapter on the surface using two number 6, 8, M3, or M4 sheet metal and/or self-tapping screws with rounded or flanged hex head and wall anchors (optional).

    Note:

    The screws and wall anchors are not included.
