CHAPTER YSTEM ABLING AND IRING NSTALLATION Experion system cabling and wiring Before You Begin Experion system cabling and wiring Your Experion system's cable and wiring requirements can be broken down into four basic categories: Ethernet Plant Information Network (PIN), Supervisory ControlNet Network, I/O ControlNet Network, and Field Wiring, as illustrated in Figure1.
Chapter 2 - System Cabling and Wiring Installation Power and ground 2.1.1 LAN (TCP/IP - Ethernet) Your Experion system uses a local area network (LAN, see figure) for server-to-station and station-to- server communications. This network may also provide links to other higher order networks and communication systems.
Before installing any Experion cabling or wiring, obtain all available and pertinent documentation. This should include all documentation supplied by Honeywell, your site's engineering documentation, and that from any additional third party suppliers whose products are involved in this installation.

In order to build your own ControlNet trunk cables you will need ControlNet-certified trunk cable and connectors, cable stripping and connector crimping tools, and test equipment to test the cables after assembly. Honeywell provides the following to aid you in the construction of your own cables. ControlNet-certified trunk cable ABREPLACE/,(TC-KCC900),/ABREPLACE available on a reel in 275 meter (900 feet) lengths.
5.1.3 Bulk cable testing If you have ordered raw bulk ControlNet trunk cable TC-KCC900 from Honeywell, or ControlNet- certified trunk cable from some other source, you may want to test it for structural return loss prior to beginning to build your trunk sections.
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables The cut adjustments described in the following procedure must be precise. Adjustments as small as 1/12 to 1/8 of a turn can make the difference between a perfect and an imperfect cut. Do not over-tighten the screws of the cable strip tool. The blades should not bend, shift, or penetrate the calibration tool.
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables 5.1.5 Reversing and replacing the cutting blades 1. Use a screwdriver to lift the memory-blade holder and swing it back. 2. Slide the memory-blade cartridge out of the strip tool. - 28 -...
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables 3. If you are: reversing the memory-blade cartridge to use its second set of blades, go to Step 4. replacing the memory-blade cartridge, go to Step 5. 4. Flip the memory-blade cartridge, and slide it back into the strip tool. Skip Step 5, and go to Step 6. 5.
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables 5.1.6 Changing the memory-blade holder You received two memory-blade holders with your cable strip tool; one is for standard PVC-CL2 cable, and the other is for plenum FEP-CL2P cable. You need to install the appropriate memory-blade holder for the types of cable you are stripping (PVC or FEP).
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables About Installing cable connectors Stripping the cable Testing stripped cable for electrical shorts and continuity Attaching connectors to the cable Testing finished cables 5.2.1 Stripping the cable CAUTION When cutting cable sections, make them long enough to route from one tap to the next with sufficient slack so that the bend radius does not exceed the defined requirements.
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables 2. Insert the cable into the cable strip tool's cutting chamber so that extra cable, approximately 25.4 mm (1 in), extends beyond the edge of the tool. The cutting chamber houses the center conductor that will be exposed when the cable is stripped.
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables 4. Holding the cable in one hand, place the index finger of your other hand inside the chamber-gauge ring. Turn the strip tool 360° around the cable. Make four or five full rotations until the strip tool glides easily around the cable.
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables 7. Using only your hands (without using the strip tool ) strip away the appropriate portions/layers of the cable. 8. Examine the resulting cuts. The various layers, as illustrated below, should now be exposed. If you do not see the three distinct layers of cable, snip off the end with wire cutters, and repeat the entire cable-stripping process.
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables 11. Make sure the center conductor is 4.0 mm (0.157 in.) in length and clean/free of any insulation residue. For PVC cable, use the imprint guide on the back of the ControlNet tap or the strip gauge to verify this.
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables CAUTION Inspect the stripped cable, checking for any braid stranding that may not have been cut at the proper length. Even one strand coming in contact with the center conductor could short out the cable. If any such strands are found, cut them to the correct length. 5.2.2 Testing stripped cable for electrical shorts and continuity ATTENTION...
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables If the resistance reading indicates: there is no short , go to Step 2. that a short exists , inspect the ends of the cable for short circuits. If you are unable to locate a short, replace the trunk-cable section.
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables 1. Slip the crimp ferrule onto the cable. Push it back to the sheath area to keep it out of the way for the moment. 2. Place the center pin over the center conductor. Make sure that the center pin slips completely onto the center conductor.
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables 6. Slide the crimp ferrule over the three outer shields and connector base, until the ferrule meets the shoulder on the connector. 7. To crimp the ferrule, position the crimp tool on the ferrule, as close as possible to the connector base and ferrule meeting line.
Chapter 5 - Building ControlNet Trunk Cables 5.2.4 Testing finished cables CAUTION Always test your finished trunk cable segments before connecting them to a new or established ControlNet network. For finished cable testing, refer to this section, Testing ControlNet Trunk Cables : Preparing to Test ControlNet Trunk Cables,...

Chapter 6 - Testing ControlNet Trunk Cables If the resistance reading indicates: there is no short , continue with Step 3. that a short exists , use your wire cutters to cut off the connector, install a new connector, and begin testing again.
Chapter 6 - Testing ControlNet Trunk Cables Testing using a Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR) A Time Domain Reflectometer (TDR) is required to perform these tests. Two potential TDRs for use with these procedures are the: Tektronics 1502, which has a range of 0 to 2000 feet with a 6 in resolution. Tektronics 1503, which has a range of 0 to 50,000 ft with a 3 ft resolution Setup your TDR cable tester as indicated in the following table.
Chapter 6 - Testing ControlNet Trunk Cables Do NOT connect together and attempt to test multiple lengths of ControlNet trunk cable. Doing so will invalidate the test and will not ensure accurate results. Both ends of every ControlNet trunk cable section must be tested. Keep the TDR batteries (if used) fully charged.

Chapter 7 - ControlNet Cable Installation NOTE To guard against inadvertent ControlNet outage on a redundant media ControlNet network, remove power from the ControlNet node (CNI) before removing the ControlNet cables. This will ensure that the network will not be dropped if one of the redundant ControlNet cables has already been disconnected or broken.
