MCON-485 module is a component of the Ampio Smart Home system and is designed to convert the transmission from devices equipped with RS485 port to CAN-Bus standard.
Module is controlled via CAN-Bus. Required voltage to power the module is 11-16V DC.
The device is equipped with RS485 connector, CAN bus connector, and two LED indicators, green and red.
The green LED indicates the status of CAN communication:
- one regular flash ever y 1 sec. – CAN-Bus communication in order
- two regular flashes every 1 sec. – module is not receiving information from other SmartHome modules
- three regular flashes every 1 sec. – module cannot send information to CAN-Bus
The red LED indicates transmission via RS485 port.
The module provides integration of most devices using MODBUS RTU protocol sent via RS485 interface with the Ampio Smart Home system. However, this is not the only option. By uploading the appropriate software it is possible to integrate any device using the transmission in RS485 standard that does not support MODBUS RTU protocol.
Dedicated software is identified by its filename with the syntax mostly compatible with naming standards assumed for updates of Ampio Smart Home devices. The only difference is that last two digits of the software version specify its purpose.
The filename template interpretation is as follows:
XXX device type, 25 for MCON devices;
YYY hardware version;
ZZZ software version;
TT software purpose.
