The instructions for configuring the repeater for use with the FC bus require that you perform the following:

  • Set the baud rate to match the FC bus baud rate.

  • Wire the repeater between two segments of the MS/TP bus. If you are using this repeater in a branch, the side with the branch has double the number of wires terminated. See Figure 1.

  • Set the EOL jumpers on the repeater according to Table 1.

Note: The EOL jumpers are located below the cover of the repeater.
Note: Sides A and B have separate EOL settings. Determine the settings individually.

For repeater installation instructions and important safety information, refer to the repeater manufacturer’s literature.

WARNING
  • Risk of Electric Shock:
  • Disconnect or isolate all power supplies before making electrical connections. More than one disconnection or isolation may be required to completely de-energize equipment. Contact with components carrying hazardous voltage can cause electric shock and may result in severe personal injury or death.
