The EAGLEHAWK controller supports M-Bus Master
functionality via its onboard RS232 / RJ45 socket.
It uses standard PW3/PW20/PW60 converters to connect to
the M-Bus devices.
Max. no. of M-Bus devices per EAGLEHAWK: 60.
Max. M-Bus length: 350 meters from PW3 / PW20 /
PW60, at baud rates of 9.6 kbaud or slower with shielded,
twisted pair cable: J-Y-(St)-Y 2 x 2 x 0,8.
The M-Bus can be extended to 1,000 meters, depending
upon the baud rate, and provided that the following
electrical limitations are observed:
Bus voltage must at no point fall below 12 VDC
Maximum cable capacitance of 180 nF
For bus length extension, M-Bus repeaters can be used, but
have not been tested by Honeywell. Hence, it is the
responsibility of the installing / commissioning personnel to
ensure proper functioning.
M-Bus meters are connected to the bus cable in parallel.

Cabling EAGLEHAWK to PW3/PW20/PW60
Use the XW586 cable between the RS232 / RJ45 socket
of the EAGLEHAWK and the PW adapters.
The XW586 cable has a length of 1.8 m, and the pin-out
listed in Table 19.
In case a third-party cable is used instead of the XW586
cable, the third-party cable must have a max. length of
15 meters and a max. cable capacitance of 2,500 pF.

Cabling PW3/PW20/PW60 to M-Bus
Use shielded, twisted pair cable J-Y-(St)-Y 2 x 2 x 0,8.
Shielding is especially recommended when the M-Bus
cable is installed in areas with expected or actual electro-
magnetic noise. Avoiding such areas is to be preferred.
Connect the shield to a noise-free earth ground – only
once per M-Bus connection.
Power the EAGLEHAWK controller and the PW M-Bus
Adapter with separate transformers – see WARNING
If, alternatively, only a single transformer is avail-
able, when connecting a laptop, PC, web browser,
CL-Touch, or 3
Device Interface on the front of the EAGLEHAWK
controller, use an optical isolator for the USB con-
nection or substitute an M-Bus Mikro-Master USB
(Relay GmbH, D-33106 Paderborn) for the PW M-
