BASRTLX-B - High Performance BACnet Router
The BASrouterLX is housed in a metal case that mounts on 35-mm DIN-rail and it is powered from a 24 VAC/VDC (± 10%) source. Its half-wave rectified power supply allows sharing of power with other half-wave devices. There are three ports on the unit – one Ethernet, one EIA-485 and a USB port.
The optically-isolated EIA-485 serial port allows for connection to either 2-wire or 3-wire MS/TP networks using a removable 5-pin terminal block. Up to 31 full-load or 62 half-load EIA-485 devices can share the serial bus at data rates between 9.6 and 115.2 kbps. Internal jumpers provide120 Ω termination and bias. These jumpers can be removed for mid-span installations.
The Ethernet port offers a shielded RJ-45 connector. Through auto-negotiation and Auto-MDIX, it automatically matches connections to the attached equipment. Thus, either CAT5 straight-through or crossover cable can be used to attach to the BACnet/IP network at either 10 or 100 Mbps speed.
MS/TP slave devices are assessable using either Manual Slave Address Binding or Automatic Slave Discovery. MS/TP slaves can be addressed throughout the complete MS/TP range.
A resident web server allows for commissioning, and troubleshooting via a standard web browser. A reset switch is provided on the router to return the unit to the factory default IP address. Five LEDs are provided: the power LED indicates that proper power is provided. Two Ethernet LEDs indicate link status, data activity, data rate and duplex. Two EIA-485 LEDs indicate transmission and reception of data.
