Cooper Bussmann BU-905U-L Wireless I/O Configuration Manual
Operation
The BU-905U-L family of modules includes both a transmitter (BU-905U-L-T) and a receiver (BU-905U-L-R). You can send signals from the
transmitter to the receiver;
The transmitter and receiver include a default function to work as a pair by sending signals from the transmitter to the receiver with the most
commonly used inputs of the transmitter being mapped to the outputs of the receiver. You can restore the default function at any time by “linking”
the receiver to the transmitter.
You can create more complex configurations using the BU-Config software.
For configuration both modules have an RS232 RJ-45 connector on the front panel for configuration that you can use in conjunction with the
serial configuration cable supplied by Cooper Bussmann.
Transmitter (BU-905U-L-T)
The transmitter monitors inputs for changes, and forwards information about the state of the inputs to other modules based on the mapping
configuration.
Mappings define when to send information about the inputs to remote modules. Mappings can be triggered by a change of value of one of the
inputs or after a specified time has elapsed since the last transmission of the information.
The transmitter provides:
• Physical inputs - the discrete, analog and thermocouple signals; and
• Virtual or internal inputs - - derived from the physical inputs (e.g., setpoint inputs and pulsed inputs).
Setpoint Status
Setpoint status “inputs” are derived from analog inputs using high and low threshold levels. Setpoint status turns “on” as the analog signal moves
below the low threshold and “off” above the high threshold. Between the low and high setpoints, the setpoint status remains unchanged.
A rotary switch on the front of the transmitter unit lets you select between ten sets of user-defined setpoint thresholds.
Pulsed Inputs
Pulsed inputs create “count” registers derived from the discrete inputs. The BU-905U-L-T counts the number of pulses on each pulsed input and
stores the count in a count register. Each time the discrete signal changes from off to on, the pulsed input register increments by one count.
The front panel LEDs indicate the state of the discrete inputs as well as the setpoint inputs.
The transmitter also controls two physical outputs:
• Setpoint output – that indicates the status of the virtual setpoint input; and
• Module OK output – that becomes active when the module’s system status indicates there are no problems in operation.
You can also configure the module to:
• Increase reliability – by sending messages multiple times. Cooper Bussmann testing indicates three times gives best reliability in most
systems); and
• Increase message distance – by including one or more repeater stations in the mapping.
When the module sends a message, the yellow LED on the front panel flashes.

Cooper Bussmann BU-905U-L Wireless I/O Configuration Manual
Receiver (BU-905U-L-R)
The receiver receives messages and updates its outputs according to the radio messages.
When the module receives a radio message, the yellow LED on the front panel flashes.
The receiver provides one analog output (4-20mA), and three discrete relay outputs. The receiver also provides two status outputs, indicating
module OK and communication failure.
Module OK Output
The module OK output remains on while the module is running and its system status indicates the system is working correctly. The LED marked
OK on the front panel is green when the system is working correctly and red otherwise.
Communication Failure Output
The communication failure output turns on when the BU-905U-L-R receiver does not receive a message within a user-configured time. Each output has a “comms-fail” timer that resets each time it receives a radio message for the output. If the timer associated with any of the outputs
reaches the configured timeout value (i.e., indicating no message was received in the user-configured time) the communications failure output is
set on. The LED on the front panel marked CF also indicates a communication failure.
Front Panel Indicators
Each output has an indication LED on the front panel of the module indicating the status of the output. Each of the three discrete outputs also has
an associated green LED that turns on when the output is on. The analog output has an associated red LED (marked AZ) that turns on when the
analog signal is zero.
The receiver sets each output according to the value specified in the messages it receives. The unit also records the time of the most recent
received message that addresses each output. If no message is received within the configured timeout for the output, the receiver indicates a
communications failure for the output. When an output is in communications failure, the associated LED flashes quickly and the module
communication failure output turns on to indicate a fault. The LED associated with the analog output for the purposes of indicating communication
failure is marked PG on the front panel.
The receiver also records the signal strength of messages it receives. Pressing the button on the front panel of the receiver causes the LEDs to
light up showing a bar graph of the signal strength of the last received message; red indicates poor signal, yellow indicates marginal signal, and
green indicates a good signal.

Setting the System Address
BU-Config uses a system address to group modules in a system. Modules ignore messages from modules not sharing share their system address
to prevent “cross-talk” between modules in different systems.
Separate networks with different system addresses can operate independently in the same area without affecting each other.
The system address can be any number between 1 and 32 767. The actual value of the system address is not important; however you must use
the same system address for all modules in the same system or they cannot communicate with each other.
NOTE: You should NOT use a system address of zero. If you change the system address for an existing project, you must re-program
all modules in the system.
When setting the system address, the BU-905U-L randomly selects a system address; however you can change the system address if required.
To set the system address:
1. Open the project.
2. Enter the system address:
3. Click Set Field
to set the new value or click Cancel Field
to keep the original value.

Encrypting Messages by Setting a Security Code
BU-Config lets you set a system security code to help ensure the messages that your network uses remain private. This provides an additional
security layer to protect the system from malicious access (e.g. hacking).
When security is enabled the BU-905U-L-T uses the security code to encrypt all transmitted radio messages and the BU-905U-L-R will only
receive messages encrypted with the same security code.
NOTE: By default, the BU-905U-L does not encrypt radio messages. You must enable security if you want to encrypt radio messages.
The BU-905U-L uses the security code to encrypt radio transmissions using 64-bit encryption.
All modules in the same system must use the same security code to encrypt and decrypt messages or they cannot communicate with each other.
The security code is downloaded to each module when you download the configuration.
NOTE: You can download the configuration at any time. BU-Config overwrites the old security code if the new security code is different
or the new configuration has no security code. You can also remove the security code if required. For more information, see Removing the
security code on page 25.
To set the security code:
1. Open the project.
2. Select Enable Security
3. BU-Config automatically generates a random 8-character security code for the system. You can use the random security code generated by
BU-Config or enter your own code.
4. If you modify the security code, BU-Config prompts you to confirm the code by re-entering the code:
NOTE - The security code can be 1 to 8 characters or numbers and is case-sensitive.
A longer security code is stronger (i.e., offers a higher level of security) than a shorter security code
To ensure the security code remains confidential, BU-Config shows a hash character (i.e., “#”) for each letter or number entered; BU-Config
never shows the security code in plain text.
5. Click Set Field
to set the new value or click Cancel Field
to keep the original value.
6. Click OK to save the security code for the project.
NOTE - If you do not enter the same security code when confirming, BU-Config shows the following warning:
Click OK to acknowledge the message and re-enter the security code.

Setting Unit Information
Every unit in a system has specific information configured for all units regardless of the type of unit. This information includes:
• Unit name – you can use this name to refer to the unit when configuring mappings from other units.
• Unit Address- unique address assigned to the unit. Some module types have two addresses (e.g., BU-905U-3 and BU-905U-4).
• Secondary address - for larger systems, the secondary address allows more than one transmit-only module to share the same unit address.
This only applies to BU-905U-K and BU-905U-L-T modules.
• Protocol Type - protocol used by the BU-905U-G modules only.

TRANSMITTER INFORMATION
This section contains specific information for configuring your BU-905U-L-T unit.
Sending data to another station using Mappings
To send data from a transmitter module BU-905U-L-T to another BU-905U series module you must configure mappings in the transmitter unit.
Mappings let you link inputs at the transmitter unit to outputs at another BU-905U series module and lets you configure which inputs are sent to
which outputs. Mappings can be triggered on a change of state (event reporting) or on a timed basis (periodic update).
BU-Config lets you:

Change unit mappings
Lets you change an existing mapping.
Changing unit mappings on page 50.
Delete unit mappings
Lets you remove an existing mapping.
Deleting unit mappings on page 51.
For more information, see the next sections.
Adding New Mappings (BU-905U-L-T ONLY)
BU-Config lets you add mappings to define how the system shares information. Conceptually a mapping takes the value of an input and shares it
with another module, usually by setting the state of one of the module outputs. The mapping display shows all inputs (including physical inputs
and internal inputs) for the selected module.
BU-905U-L-T transmits messages only; it cannot receive messages and has no communication failure contingency.
BU-Config lets you send multiple input values in a single message to help reduce the number of transmissions.
You can also:
• Invert inputs – if you invert an input, the transmitted message sends the inverse value of the actual input; and
• Reverse analog inputs – the inverse of an analog input reverses the magnitude of the value (e.g. 4mA becomes 20mA).
NOTE: Do NOT invert pulsed inputs.
BU-Config uses arrows to indicate the communication direction:

How to Configure a Mapping
Mappings configure when to send specific information to another module and how the data is sent. You can send input data:
• When the input values change (also called “Event reporting”); or
• Event reporting and on a timed basis (also called “Timed Update”).
Mappings cause the BU-905U-L-T to transmit messages when any of the inputs used by the mapping change state. You can also configure your
unit to send messages if there are no state changes for a while.
Feature
Description
Mapping Name
Optional user-defined name for the mapping.
NOTE: BU-Config only stores the mapping name in the configuration file; the mapping name is not transferred to the
module during configuration. This means that loading a module will not reproduce any user-defined names assigned to
the mappings.
Transmit Count
Number of times to transmit the same message. For example, if you set Transmit count to 1, the BU-905U-L-T
transmits the message once, if you set the value to 2, the BU-905U-L-T transmits the message twice, etc.
Setting the transmit count to a higher number (up to 8) helps the message arrive at its intended destination if the radio
path is “marginal.” For large systems, excessive transmissions may cause slow response. Cooper Bussmann
recommends setting a transmit count of 2 or 3 for good radio paths, and 4 or 5 for poor radio paths.
Delay Before Tx
Number of seconds to wait after the mapping is triggered before transmitting the message. For example,
if you set Delay Before Tx to 5.0, the BU-905U-L-T waits 5 seconds before transmitting the message.
Setting a longer Delay Before Tx (up to 127 seconds) helps synchronize closely spaced changes to different inputs
sent in a single message. Once the mapping is triggered, the BU-905U-L-T incorporates any changes to the state of
inputs during the Delay Before Tx period in the message that is sent.
Update Time
If a “change” trigger does occur not in the Update Time, the BU-905U-L-T triggers the mapping and transmits the
message. This is known as an “Update message.”
Whenever the mapping is triggered (by either a change or an update), the BU-905U-L-T restarts the timer.
For example, if you set Update Time to 0:2:30:00, the BU-905U-L-T sends the message 2.5 hours after the last time it
was sent unless a change of state causes the mapping to be triggered before this time elapses.
Paralysis Time
Minimum number of seconds to delay after sending a message before the mapping is re-sent. For example, if you set
Paralysis Time to 300 seconds, the BU-905U-L-T will not transmit a message for 300 seconds after sending the last
message sent. If the mapping is triggered during this time, the BU-905U-L-T delays transmitting the message until the
Paralysis Time has passed. This forces a limit on the number of transmissions that can occur.
Disable
Lets you enable/disable the Update Timer and the Paralysis Timer.
From Inputs
This selects the actual input data the BU-905U-L-T will send. The BU-905U-L-T sends data to the output module in the
order listed.
Select the inputs you want to send to the remote module by dragging them from the Available Inputs box or by doubleclicking the relevant inputs. Alternatively you can right click on the inputs in the Available Inputs list and select Add to list:
Any of the available inputs can be added to the From Inputs box in any order, including the
same input multiple times. You can change the order for sending inputs by clicking and
dragging the items up and down to different locations in the list. The pulsed inputs are
32-bit values with the top 16 bits in the ‘high’ inputs.
To remove an input from the list, select the input and from the shortcut menu select
Delete:
To invert an input, select the input in the From Inputs box. Press Ctrl+I or right click on the
input and select Invert from the list:

Setting Unit Sensitivities
Unit sensitivities indicate the change required in an analog input for the BU-905U-L-T to detect a state change and trigger any mapping that
includes the input.
If you set the sensitivity to a small value, the mappings using the input will trigger on a small change of value. If the input is noisy or variable, this
can congest the radio channel by sending multiple spurious messages. You can overcome this situation by increasing the sensitivity value.

Setting Setpoints
Setpoints let you generate a discrete setpoint status signal based on the value of an analog input.
Each setpoint status is associated with two setpoint values - a high threshold value and a low threshold value.
When the analog level moves above the high setpoint value, the setpoint status turns off. When the analog level moves below the low setpoint
value, the setpoint status turns on. If the analog input remains between the threshold values, the setpoint retains its previous value
(i.e., does not change state). This provides a measure of hysteresis.
NOTE: The high setpoint MUST be higher (i.e., greater value) than the low setpoint.
The analog input and the thermocouple input setpoints allow selection between ten different threshold pairs using the rotary switch on
the front panel.
For more information on translating analog signal types, see Appendix A – Tables for translating different analog signal types on page 75.
BU-Config lets you set the following setpoints:

Setting Additional Unit Detail Information
This section describes how to set additional unit detail information including:
• Sample period and warmup time - the BU-905U-L-T only turns on the analog circuits and the +24V analog loop power supply when they are
actually required. You can reduce the module power consumption by limiting the amount of time the analog circuitry and the +24V analog loop
supply is enabled.
Sample period determines how often the module checks an analog signal. Warmup time determines how long the analog circuits are powered
up before performing the sample. The analogue circuitry is powered all the time if the warmup period for any analog input is set to a value
longer than the sampling period.
By setting the sample time as long as possible, and setting the warmup time as short as necessary to power the external conditioning circuitry,
the module power consumption can be reduced; and
• Debounce time - the amount of time an input needs to have differed from its previous value before it is recognized as having changed.
This helps with noisy signals.
Inputs subject to a high level of noise can cause the module to transmit multiple messages due to random changes to the input level.
By setting the debounce time to a larger value, the signal needs to change by the configured sensitivity for some time before a
change is registered and a new message is sent.

BU-Config lets you set the following options:
Feature
Description
Thermocouple Debounce
For analog signals (e.g. thermocouple, analog 4-20mA, and
module temperature), debounce time is the product of the
number of samples and the sample period. The signal must
differ from the previous value by the sensitivity value for this
duration to register a ‘change of state.’
Example
This means that changing the analog sample time will also
change the debounce time. For analog signals a value of 0 or 1
generates the quickest response, and 255 the slowest response.
Thermocouple Sample Period
This sets the period between samples of the thermocouple input.
A smaller value will cause mappings using this input to be
triggered more frequently (i.e., quicker response).
A larger value will cause mappings using this input to be
triggered less frequently (i.e., less power consumption).
Thermocouple Warm-Up Time
The amount of time the analog circuits are turned on before
sampling the thermocouple input.
For normal thermocouples, these can be set to the minimum
value (i.e., 0.08 seconds).
If using an external (millivolt) device powered from the +24V
supply that requires a longer period to settle, you may need to
set this value to allow the external device to settle.
Unit temp Sample Period
The time between samples of the internal temperature sensor.
The module temperature (Cold junction temperature) is sampled
every time the thermocouple input is sampled. You will only need
to set this field if you want to sample the temperature more often
than you sample the thermocouple, including when you are not
using a thermocouple.

Feature
Description
Unit Temp Warm-Up Time
The amount of time the analog circuits are turned on before
sampling the internal temperature sensor.
Example
You should always set this value set to the minimum value
(0.08 seconds).
Supply Voltage Sample Period
Time between samples of the internal supply voltage.
Ain1 Debounce
The debounce time is the product of the number of samples
and the sample period. The signal must differ from the previous
value by the sensitivity value for this duration to register a
‘change of state.’
This means that changing the analog sample time will also
change the debounce time. For analog signals, a value of
0 or 1 generates the quickest response; 255 generates the
slowest response.
Ain1 Sample Period
Sets the period between samples of the thermocouple input.
A smaller value will cause mappings using this input to be
triggered more frequently (i.e., quicker response).
A larger value will cause mappings using this input to be
triggered less frequently (less power consumption).

BU-905U-L-R RECEIVER INFORMATION
This section contains specific information for configuring your BU-905U-L-R unit.
Handling Communication Failures by Setting Output Reset Times
Unit output reset times allow you to configure the outputs to turn off if they do not receive an update message within a certain time.
The output is reset to a zero value if it does not receive an update message within the configured time. The output is turned off for
discrete outputs. For analog outputs, the output is actually set to -4mA internally, however the lowest current at the output is 0mA
As well as resetting the output, the front panel LED for the output flashes quickly to indicate communication failure.
If any output is reset because of an output reset timeout, the global communication fail status output is also activated.
NOTE: Setting the output reset time to zero is the same as disabling the output reset. The BU-905U-L-R will retain the current output
value indefinitely although no messages are received from the transmitting unit when the output reset is disabled.
To set unit output reset times:
1. Open the project.
2. Select the unit you want to change.
3. Select Output Reset Times.
4. Double click the time you want to change or select the time and click Edit Update Time.
NOTE: You can also Shift+Click and Ctrl+Click to select multiple times before you click Edit Update Time. This allows you to set several
timers to the same value quickly. For example:
5. BU-Config will write the new output reset times to the module the next time you configure the module.

GLOSSARY
Analog Signal
Analog signals are continuously variable signals. The BU-905U-L supports analog signals in the range 0-20 milli-amps.
Cold Junction Temperature Compensation
When using thermocouples, the module compensates for the reading
errors caused by the temperature of the connection between the
thermocouple wires and the module terminal strip.
Setpoint
Setpoints let you generate a discrete signal based on the value of an
analog input. Each setpoint is associated with two different values - a
high threshold value and a low threshold value. When the analog input
moves below the low threshold value the set point turns off. When the
analog input moves above the high threshold value the setpoint turns
on. When the analog level is between the high and low threshold
values, it does not change.
Debounce Delay
Number of seconds that a signal must be changed to be recognized
as changed.
Thermocouple
Thermocouples measure temperature by using the Seebeck effect that
occurs at the junction of dissimilar metals.
Discrete Signal
Discrete signals are either active (on) or inactive (off).
Thermocouple Linearzation Table
Thermocouple tables translate the millivolt signal from a thermocouple
to an actual temperature measurement. The BU-905U-L provides
built-in support for E, J, K and T type thermocouples, and support for
other thermocouple types through user compensation tables.
Mapping
Configuration item that lets you link inputs at one module to outputs at
another module. Mappings are triggered either by a change in some
of the input data that they send, or by a timer to send an update if the
data hasn’t changed.
Module
The actual remote device hardware being configured.
Output reset time
If an output doesn’t have any data sent to it, it can be configured to
turn off (reset). Output reset time is the time to wait after receiving
data before resetting the output to a safe state (0mA for analog, off for
digital).
Unit
Configuration of a particular device (module) stored inside the
configuration software
Warm Up Time
Determines how long the analog circuits are powered up before
performing the sample.
Paralysis
Minimum number of seconds after a mapping is transmitted that it
can be transmitted as a second event if triggered.
Post linearization scaling
Lets you to change the range of temperature reported by the
thermocouple system. This is a scale factor applied after linearizing
the thermocouple voltage to a temperature range.
Pulsed Input
Used to count the number of times an event has occurred. Pulsed
inputs are attached to a discrete input, and count the number of times
the input has switched from off to on.
Repeater
A module that receives a message and passes the message to
another module.
Sample Time
Determines how often the module checks an analog signal.
Sensitivities
Unit sensitivities indicate the change required in an input for
