AF-600 FP LonWorks 4 How to Install 4.1 How to install 4.1.1 The LonWorks Option The LonWorks option is equipped with two termination switches, S300 and S301, enabling double termination when using bus topology. The push-button switch O400, activates the Service-Pin function.
AF-600 FP LonWorks 4.1.2 Cabling The Free Topology Transceiver (FTT) system is designed to support free topology wiring and accommodates bus, star, loop or any combination of these topologies. The LonWorks option is equipped with the FT-X1 transceiver for improved EMC performmance. Flexible wiring capability simplifies system installation and makes it easy to add nodes for system expansion.
AF-600 FP LonWorks 4.1.3 Network Termination Dependent on the type of topology, at least one of the connected nodes must be terminated (52.5Ω). The option has two built-in termination circuits which are activated by the terminator switches S300 and S301.
The following EMC precautions are recommended in order to achieve interference-free operation of the LonWorks network. Additional EMC information is available in the AF-600 FP Design Guide. Relevant national and local regulations, for example regarding protective earth connection, must be observed.
