200V: Communication processors

Communications processors are used to connect different target and source systems, e.g. via Ethernet to higher-level ERP systems or serially to scanners, printers and other peripherals.

CP 240 - serial

The communication processors CP 240 serial enable the serial process coupling to different target and source systems. Depending on the module they have a RS232 and/or a RS485 interface.

CP 240 - EnOcean

The CP 240 EnOcean enables process coupling on the basis of the EnOcean wireless communication. EnOcean is a battery-free radio system that, due to the short signal duration of 0.5 ms and 10 mW transmitting power, has an energy requirement of only 50 ╬╝Ws. Here, the system uses the energy from the smallest changes in pressure or temperature to power the sensors.

CP 240 - M-Bus

In the case of the CP 240 M-Bus, the process coupling takes place on the basis of the M-Bus communication. The M-Bus System (Metering Bus) is a European-standardized 2-wire fieldbus for acquiring consumption data. Here, the data is transmitted serially via a reverse polarity protected 2-wire line from slave systems (meters) to a master system.
