About the Repeater Adapter Module
The 1786-RPA/B ControlNet repeater adapter module, which has a 24V DC,
removable power supply, can be used with 1786 repeater modules to build a
ControlNet network repeater. A repeater is used to extend the length of a
network, create a star, ring, or point-to-point topology, or perform network
media conversion from copper to fiber, and vice versa. A maximum of 20
repeater adapter can be placed in a series.

Environment and Enclosure
ATTENTION: This equipment is intended for use in a Pollution
Degree 2 industrial environment, in overvoltage Category II
applications (as defined in IEC 60664-1), at altitudes up to 2000 m
(6562 ft) without derating.
This equipment is considered Group 1, Class A industrial equipment
according to IEC/CISPR 11. Without appropriate precautions, there
may be difficulties with electromagnetic compatibility in residential
and other environments due to conducted and radiated disturbances.
This equipment is supplied as open-type equipment. It must be
mounted within an enclosure that is suitably designed for those
specific environmental conditions that will be present and
appropriately designed to prevent personal injury resulting from
accessibility to live parts. The enclosure must have suitable
flame-retardant properties to prevent or minimize the spread of flame,
complying with a flame spread rating of 5VA, V2, V1, V0 (or
equivalent) if non-metallic. The interior of the enclosure must be
accessible only by the use of a tool. Subsequent sections of this
publication may contain additional information regarding specific
enclosure type ratings that are required to comply with certain
product safety certifications.
In addition to this publication, see the following:
• Industrial Automation Wiring and Grounding Guidelines,
publication 1770-4.1, for additional installation requirements
• NEMA Standard 250 and IEC 60529, as applicable, for explanations
of the degrees of protection provided by enclosures

Features and Components of the ControlNet Repeater Adapter
A 1786-RPA/B repeater adapter can be used with the following modules to
build a ControlNet network repeater:
• 1786-RPCD repeater dual copper module
• 1786-RPFS repeater short-distance fiber module
• 1786-RPFM repeater medium-distance fiber module

TIP
If the 1786-RPA/B repeater adapter is used with the 1786-RPCD,
1786-RPFS, and 1786-RPFM repeater modules, you can attach as
many as four repeaters to the repeater adapter.
If the 1786-RPA/B repeater adapter is used with the 1786-RPFRL
and 1786-RPFRXL repeater modules, you can attach as many as
two repeaters to the repeater adapter.
See page 11 for more details.
ATTENTION: If this equipment is used in a manner not specified
by the manufacturer, the protection provided by the equipment may
be impaired.

Mount the Repeater Adapter Module
This section explains how to mount the 1786-RPA/B repeater adapter module.
TIP
Horizontal mounting is preferred. Vertical mounting is allowed.
We recommend that the 1786-RPA/B module be mounted at the
top if vertical mounting is chosen.
ATTENTION: This product is grounded through the DIN rail to
chassis ground. Use zinc plated yellow-chromate steel DIN rail to
assure proper grounding. The use of other DIN rail materials (for
example, aluminum or plastic) that can corrode, oxidize, or are poor
conductors, can result in improper or intermittent grounding.
Secure DIN rail to mounting surface approximately every 200 mm
(7.8 in.) and use end-anchors appropriately.

Do these steps to mount the 1786-RPA/B module.
1. Position the repeater adapter module on the 35 x 7.5 mm (1.4 x 0.3 in.)
DIN rail (Allen-Bradley part number 199-DR1) at a 30o angle.
31454A-M
2. Hook the lip on the rear of the 1786-RPA/B repeater adapter module
onto the top of the DIN rail, and rotate the repeater adapter module
onto the rail.
31454B-M
3. Press the repeater adapter module down onto the DIN rail until flush.
The locking tab should snap into position and lock the repeater adapter
module to the DIN rail.
Rockwell Automation Publication 1786-IN013F-EN-P - April 2011
10 ControlNet Modular Repeater Adapter
If the repeater adapter module does not snap into position, use a
screwdriver or similar device to move the locking tab down while
pressing the repeater adapter flush onto the DIN rail.
31454C-M
4. Release the locking tab to lock the adapter in place.
If necessary, push up on the locking tab to lock.
5. Once the repeater adapter module is attached to the DIN rail, slide the
repeater modules to the left to mate with the repeater adapter module.

ControlNet Modular Repeater Adapter 11
WARNING: Removal and insertion under power (RIUP) is not
supported. This module must be powered down while connecting
and disconnecting it from any interconnected modules.
If you insert or remove the module while backplane power is on, an
electrical arc can occur. This could cause an explosion in hazardous
location installations.
Be sure that power is removed or the area is nonhazardous
before proceeding.
6. Attach the DIN rail locks to the left side of the repeater adapter module
and the right side of the attached modules to lock the repeater adapter
module and modules in place.
IMPORTANT
Make certain that the repeater adapter and modules are secured
together with DIN rail locks on either side. Failure to do so may
result in the loss of communication and/or cause damage
to the modules.
IMPORTANT
The total number of modules that can be attached to the
1786-RPA/B repeater adapter cannot exceed four or the total
power consumption of the modules cannot exceed 8 W or
1.6 A @ 5V DC, whichever comes first.
The 1786-RPFRL/B and 1786-RPFRXL/B modules require 570 mA
each, therefore you can attach only two of these modules to a
1786-RPA/B repeater module. The maximum current draw at
5V DC is 400 mA for the 1786-RPFM module, 300 mA for the
1786-RPFS module, and 499 mA for the 1786-RPCD module.
If you exceed the module or power limit, you may cause damage
to the modules and repeater adapter.
Rockwell Automation Publication 1786-IN013F-EN-P - April 2011

7. Repeat steps 1 through 6 for each of the two DIN rail locks.
IMPORTANT
For proper operation when using a 1786-RPFRXL/B module with a
1786-RPCD module attached to the same 1786-RPA/B repeater
module, you must install any 1786-RPCD module to the left side
of any 1786-RPFRL or 1786-RPFRXL/B repeater module.
8. Tighten the two screws on the DIN rail lock to a torque
of 1.1 N•m (9…11 in•lb).
a. Position the DIN rail lock to the DIN rail.
b. Press the DIN rail lock down onto the DIN rail.
c. Tighten the screws.
31460-M
9. Wire the repeater adapter module.
See Wire the Repeater Adapter Module for details.
10. Terminate any unused coax ports by connecting a 75 Ω terminator to the
unused BNC connector.
One 75 Ω terminator is shipped with the repeater adapter module.

Wire the Repeater Adapter Module
This section describes how to wire your module.
WARNING: An electrical arc can occur under these
circumstances:
- when you connect or disconnect the removable terminal block (RTB)
with field side power applied
- if you connect or disconnect the communications cable with power
applied to this module or any device on the network
This could cause an explosion in hazardous location installations. Be
sure that power is removed or the area is nonhazardous before
proceeding.
TIP
Make sure you have obtained the following items before you
begin to wire the module:
• Two lengths of 0.21…3.3 mm2 (24…12 AWG) wire
• Wire stripping tool
• Small, flathead screwdriver
Follow these steps to wire the module.
1. Strip about 7 mm (0.28 in.) of insulation from the end of each wire.
2. Attach the Vin + wire to one of the Vin + terminals on the RTB.
