Installation Quick Guide
In addition to this hardware kit, you need a MODBUS software or driver, often already available in a SCADA system.
1. Install software or driver on the host (PC). For example QModMaster or Easyview.
2. Connect the USB to RS485 transceiver and pay attention to which USB/COM port the device get. Connect to first end of the 2 meter M8 cable to the transceiver cable. Connect the other end of the 2 meter M8 cable to the LNB or BDC. Be aware that the M8 connectors are “keyed” for rotation by the assymetric pin placement.
3. Power up the LNB/BDC and start the software on the PC. Make sure that the software uses correct USB/Com port for the connection to the LNB/ BDC.
4. Make necessary settings in the software and read or write to the unit according to the Alarm Wiring Guide diagram in the product sheet. Please note! Standard client ID is “60”.
