The FC bus port on the front of the controller is an RJ-12, 6-position modular jack that provides a connection for the Mobile Access Portal (MAP) Gateway, the Bluetooth® Commissioning Converter, or the ZFR/ZFR Pro Wireless Field Bus Router.

The FC bus port is connected internally to the FC bus terminal block. For more information about the FC Bus port functions, requirements, and ratings, see Communications bus and power supply terminal block rating and requirements table. The FC bus port pin assignment is shown in Figure 1.

  • When the FAC is configured for N2 network communication, the FC bus port is not used.
  • The MAP Gateway serves as a replacement for the BTCVT, which is no longer available for purchase, but continues to be supported.
