4 General about SattBus installation

A shielded twisted pair cable with a minimum


of 3 twists/m and 80120 characteristic
impedance should be used as the bus cable.
Minimum area is 0.35 mm 2.

Note! The same type of cable must be used for


the entire SattBus installation.

Cable length and number of nodes


The total length must not exceed 500 m.

Termination

The bus cable should be terminated with


100 resistors, connected at the two most
remote ends, measured along the cable. See
figure above.

All units in EPC 50 system, i.e. OP, I/O and


MT 50, have internal termination resistors
which can be connected/disconnected by
jumpers.

For EPC 50 I/O-board termination resistor is


connected by placing jumper XJ3 in position
TERM.

6 Interconnect several EPC50 units

NOTE! Before the systems will be intercon-


nected, check that the systems have different
identities. Unexpected problems could arise if
two systems have the same identity and com-
munication would be delayed.

A maximum of nine EPC 50 units can be con-


nected via SattBus to the PC with the
REMINDTM program.
The node addresses for each unit must be set
before starting up. They are set using the
Operators panel.

Setting the node addresses

All node addresses on SattBus must be


unique, which means that each EPC 50 con-
nected to SattBus must have a unique separa-
tor identity. The EPC 50 identity is default 1.
If one EPC 50 unit is connected, this should
have the identity 1, the second unit should
have the identity 2 etc.
The identity 1 means that all nodes belonging
to the unit start at 10, identity 2 means start at
20 etc., see figure below.

Monitoring mode means address 18, and Con-


trol monitoring mode means address 19.

To set the identity, select on the Operators


panel menu item Separator Identity In 5,
and then select set required identity (19).

8 Troubleshooting the Network

8.1 Troubleshooting the


PC Board Network
Follow the troubleshooting steps below, if an
attempt to establish communication with the
EPC network using the PC board fails.
1. Is the PC board address appropriately
selected? The address is default HD1000,
set in the REMIND program and on the
PC board. The later should normally not
been changed.
2. Is the OMM LED flashing in the front
of the PC-board? If no, the PC-board is
not appropriately connected to the SattBus
network.
- Check the SattBus connections.
- Check that the EPC units has started and
is functioning in an appropriate way.
3. Is the system connected to some nodes but
not all? If yes:
- Check that the LED OMM in the front
of the PC board and the SattBus LED on
the EPC 50 I/O board (see figure on page
23) are flashing similarly on all EPCs
connected to the network. They must not
be off or steady lit.
- Check the REMIND system setup. Each
EPC system number must correspond to
the installation parameter IN5 value in the
EPC50 unit.
- Check that communication parameter
values Fa 94 = 9.6 and Fa 95 = No.
- Check that the EPC units which are
defined in the system setup, physically are
connected to the network.

Follow the troubleshooting steps below, if an
attempt to establish communication with the
EPC network using the SBSU unit fails.
1. Is the SBSU power supplied? Check that
the Power on LED is on.
2. Is the LED SB Active flashing? If no,
the SBSU is not correctly connected to the
SattBus network.
- Check the SattBus connections (see the
section on page 17).
- Check that the EPC units are started and
are functioning in an appropriate way.
3. Are the LEDs TD Channel 1 and/or
RD Channel 1 flashing directly after the
start of communication? If no, the SBSU
is not correctly connected to the PC.
- Check that the channel plug is connected
to the SBSU Channel 1.
- Check that the cable is connected to the
appropriate COM port on the PC, as
selected in the REMIND EPC 50 program.
4. Are the LEDs TD Channel 1 and/or
RD Channel 1 starting to flash directly
after start of communication, but then
stops? If yes, the connection is OK but
there is no response.
- Check that the SBSU node identity is
appropriately set (see the cover of the
SBSU unit). The node identity must have
different settings for the two types of
REMIND modes. Control&Monitoring:
High = 1, Low = 3. Monitoring: High = 1,

12.4 Installation

12.4.1 Power Supply and Grounding


Use a stabilized 24 V DC power supply unit
placed close to the SBSU and connect it to the
3-pole jackable screw terminal block. A
suitable cable is 3 1.5 mm2. The voltage at
the terminal screws must be 1932 V DC.
Connect protective ground to the relevant
terminal screw, and connect 0 V to ground
only at one end of the cable.

12.4.2 SattBus Connection


See General about SattBus installation on
page 11.

12.4.3 Serial Channel Connection


The SBSU has two 25-pole metallic female D-
type connectors for serial channels. Only
channel 1 is used for the present SBSU
application. Use a screened cable and connect
the screen to the metal case of the connector.

Pin layout for the RS-232 channel:

12.5 Switch Settings

12.5.1 SattBus Node Identity


Each unit connected to SattBus must have a
unique node address between 5 and 125
(decimal). The address is set by the two
hexadecimal switches Node identity (see
figure on page 40). The switch marked H
(High) is used for the most significant
hexadecimal digit, and the switch marked L
(Low) for the least significant digit. The table
below shows how to find the switch settings
corresponding to a decimal address.
Low
0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F
0 - - - - - 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15

5 80 81 82 83 84 85 86 87 88 89 90 91 92 93 94 95
6 96 97 98 99 100 101 102 103 104 105 106 107 108 109 110 111
7 112 113 114 115 116 117 118 119 120 121 122 123 124 125 - -

Example: The H switch set to 4 and the L


switch set to 2 means the hexadecimal number
42 representing the decimal address 66.

12.5.2 Filter Address


When the SBSU is used as a bridge, it is
transparent for a range of consecutive SattBus
addresses set by means of four hexadecimal
switches.

493107611 (3-1) 43
12 SattBus Serial Unit, SBSU Description REMIND EPC 50 Network Users Manual

A message from a node in SattBus network


No. 1 with the destination address X is
transmitted to SattBus network No. 2 only if X
is in the range set by the low and the high
filter addresses of SBSU No. 1, see figure
below. In the same way, a message is
transmitted from SattBus network No. 2 to
network No. 1 only if the destination address
Y is in between the low and the high filter
addresses of SBSU No. 2.

SattBus network SattBus network


No. 1 SBSU SBSU No. 2
No.1 No.2

Low filter Low filter


address address
High filter High filter
address address
SattBus message SattBus message
with destination with destination
address X address Y

The low and high filter addresses are set by


means of the hexadecimal switches SW1 and
SW2, see figure on page 40. The decimal
address in the range 5125 can be read from
the table above.

Example: An SBSU in bridge configuration


is to transmit messages from the SattBus side
with destination addresses only in the range
1859
.

1 2

SW1 H L Low filter address: 18 (decimal) = 12 (hexadecimal)

SW2 H L High filter address: 59 (decimal) = 3B (hexadecimal)

3 B

When the SBSU is used as an interface to the


serial channel of a computer system, all four
switches SW1SW2 must be set to zero.

12.5.3 Mode Switch


The mode switch (see figure on page 40) must
be set to zero. It is used for production testing
and is also intended for future needs.

12.5.4 Serial Channel Parameters


The DIP switch below the Node identity
switches (see figure on page 40) is used to set
the serial channel parameters.
