Industrial Protocols

Besides the main radio of Waspmote Plug & Sense!, it is possible to have an Industrial Protocol module as a secondary communication option. This is offered as an accessory feature.

The available Industrial Protocols are RS-485, Modbus (software layer over RS-485) and CAN Bus. This optional feature is accessible through an additional, dedicated socket on the antenna side of the enclosure.

Finally, the user can choose between 2 probes to connect the desired Industrial Protocol: A standard DB9 connector and a waterproof terminal block junction box. These options make the connections on industrial environments or outdoor applications easier.

The length of the Terminal Box cable is 1.5 m.

Each Industrial Protocol requires its own signals, wired on the female DB9 connector and on the Terminal box according to the next table:
