GENERAL DESCRIPTION
1.1
Basic functionality
TCM 310 enables the realization of gateways for the
EnOcean 868 MHz and 315 MHz radio systems. It provides a bi-directional radio interface at one end and a
bi-directional serial interface at the other end. Radio
messages are sent transparently through the serial
interface in both directions from and to an externally
connected host processor or host PC. In addition control commands can be sent from the host, e.g. to configure the repeater functionality or to manage the
Smart Ack functions. TCM 310 can act as postmaster
for up to 15 bi-directional sensors using Smart Ack
technology.

2.2.1 GPIO supply voltage - IOVDD
For digital communication with other circuitry the pins of the serial interface UART may be
operated from supply voltages different from DVDD. Therefore an interface voltage supply
pin IOVDD is available which can be connected either to DVDD or to an external supply
within the tolerated voltage range of IOVDD.
If DVDD=0 V (e.g. in any sleep mode) and IOVDD is supplied, there may be unpredictable and varying current from IOVDD caused by internal floating nodes. It
must be taken care that the current into IOVDD does not exceed 10 mA while
DVDD=0 V. If DVDD=0 V and IOVDD is not supplied, do not apply voltage to any
above mentioned pin. This may lead to unpredictable malfunction of the device.
IOVDD voltage must not exceed VDD voltage! A malfunction of the module may be
caused by such inverse supply!

Built-in Repeater
TCM 310 provides the option to activate a one or two-level repeater for EnOcean radio telegrams.
1-level repeater: If a received telegram is a valid and original (not yet repeated), the telegram is repeated after a random delay.
2-level repeater: If a received telegram is valid and original or repeated once, the telegram
is repeated after a random delay.
2-level repeating function should only be activated if really needed! Otherwise the
system function can be compromised by collisions of telegrams.
The repeated telegram is marked as “repeated” by an increased repeater counter.
Configuration of the repeater is done via serial interface commands.
For detailed recommendations regarding the usage of repeaters please refer to our application note EnOcean Wireless Systems - Installation Notes (PDF), 09/2010.
2.8
Smart Acknowledge
TCM 310 provides a post master function with 15 mailboxes for sensors using Smart Ack
technology. For more information on smart acknowledge please refer to EnOcean Equipment Profiles (EEP) V2.1.
When teaching-in a device using Smart Acknowledge please take care to switch off
all TCM 3xy devices which are not continuously powered. Otherwise these TCM
3xy modules could be declared postmaster. As soon as the power supply is
switched off, a postmaster would be missing and Smart Acknowledge would not
work any longer!
2.9
Remote Management
TCM 310 provides a transparent radio channel also for remote management messages with
a message length of up to 256 bytes. This enables an external micro controller connected
to TCM 310 to handle remote management request from external devices or to control
other devices via remote management. For more information on remote management
please refer to EnOcean Equipment Profiles (EEP) V2.1.

APPLICATIONS INFORMATION
3.1
Transmission range
The main factors that influence the system transmission range are type and location of the
antennas of the receiver and the transmitter, type of terrain and degree of obstruction of
the link path, sources of interference affecting the receiver, and “dead” spots caused by
signal reflections from nearby conductive objects. Since the expected transmission range
strongly depends on this system conditions, range tests should categorically be performed
before notification of a particular range that will be attainable by a certain application.
The following figures for expected transmission range are considered by using a PTM, a
STM or a TCM radio transmitter device and the TCM radio receiver device with preinstalled
whip antenna and may be used as a rough guide only:
„
„
„
„
„
Line-of-sight connections: Typically 30 m range in corridors, up to 100 m in halls
Plasterboard walls / dry wood: Typically 30 m range, through max. 5 walls
Line-of-sight connections: Typically 30 m range in corridors, up to 100 m in halls
Ferro concrete walls / ceilings: Typically 10 m range, through max. 1 ceiling
Fire-safety walls, elevator shafts, staircases and supply areas should be considered as
screening.
The angle at which the transmitted signal hits the wall is very important. The effective wall
thickness – and with it the signal attenuation – varies according to this angle. Signals
should be transmitted as directly as possible through the wall. Wall niches should be
avoided. Other factors restricting transmission range:
„ Switch mounted on metal surfaces (up to 30% loss of transmission range)
„ Hollow lightweight walls filled with insulating wool on metal foil
„ False ceilings with panels of metal or carbon fibre
„ Lead glass or glass with metal coating, steel furniture
The distance between EnOcean receivers and other transmitting devices such as computers, audio and video equipment that also emit high-frequency signals should be at least
0.5 m
A summarized application note to determine the transmission range within buildings is
available as download from www.enocean.com.

Power supply requirements
In order to provide a good radio performance, great attention must be paid to the power
supply and a correct layout and shielding. It is recommended to place a 22 µF ceramic capacitor between VDD and GND close to the module (material: X5R, X7R, min 6.3 V to avoid
derating effects). In addition a 470 nH coil shall be inserted (Murata LQW18A, 0603) in the
power supply line.
For best performance it is recommended to keep the ripple on the power supply rail below
10 mVpp (see 2.4).
All GND pins must be connected to GND. Be careful not to create loops! The
ground must be realized ideally on both sides of the PCB board with many vias. At
least there must be a short star connection. Otherwise RF performance can be
reduced!
3.5
Layout recommendations
The length of lines connected to I/Os should not exceed 5 cm.
It is recommended to have a complete GND layer, at least below the module and
directly connected components. GND must however be avoided 0…0.3mm below
the PCB in the area marked by the circle in the figures below.

The data above is also available as EAGLE library.
In order to ensure good solder quality a solder mask thickness of 150 µm is recommended.
In case a 120 µm solder mask is used, it is recommended to enlarge the solder print. The
pads on the solder print should then be 0.1 mm larger than the pad dimensions of the
module as specified in chapter 1.3. (not relative to the above drawing).
Nevertheless an application and production specific test regarding the amount of soldering
paste should be performed to find optimum parameters.

Soldering information
TCM 310 has to be soldered according to IPC/JEDEC J-STD-020C standard.
TCM 310 shall be handled according to Moisture Sensitivity Level MSL4 which means a floor
time of 72 h. TCM 310 may be soldered only once, since one time is already consumed at
production of the module itself.
Once the dry pack bag is opened, the desired quantity of units should be removed and the
bag resealed within two hours. If the bag is left open longer than 30 minutes the desiccant
should be replaced with dry desiccant. If devices have exceeded the specified floor life time
of 72 h, they may be baked according IPC/JEDEC J-STD-033B at max. 90°C for less than

FCC (United States) Certification
LIMITED MODULAR APPROVAL
This is an RF module approved for Limited Modular use operating as an intentional transmitting device with respect to 47 CFR 15.231(a-c) and is limited to OEM installation. The
module is optimized to operate using small amounts of energy, and may be powered by a
battery. The module transmits short radio packets comprised of control signals, (in some
cases the control signal may be accompanied with data) such as those used with alarm systems, door openers, remote switches, and the like. The module does not support continuous streaming of voice, video, or any other forms of streaming data; it sends only short
packets containing control signals and possibly data. The module is designed to comply
with, has been tested according to 15.231(a-c), and has been found to comply with each
requirement. Thus, a finished device containing the TCM 310C radio module can be operated in the United States without additional Part 15 FCC approval (approval(s) for unintentional radiators may be required for the OEM’s finished product), under EnOcean’s FCC ID
number. This greatly simplifies and shortens the design cycle and development costs for
OEM integrators. The module can be triggered manually or automatically, which cases are
described below.
Manual Activation
The radio module can be configured to transmit a short packetized control signal if triggered manually. The module can be triggered, by pressing a switch, for example.
The packet contains one (or more) control signals that is (are) intended to control something at the receiving end. The packet may also contain data. Depending on how much energy is available from the energy source, subsequent manual triggers can initiate the
transmission of additional control signals. This may be necessary if prior packet(s) was
(were) lost to fading or interference. Subsequent triggers can also be initiated as a precaution if any doubt exists that the first packet didn’t arrive at the receiver. Each packet that is
transmitted, regardless of whether it was the first one or a subsequent one, will only be
transmitted if enough energy is available from the energy source.
Automatic Activation
The radio module also can be configured to transmit a short packetized control signal, if
triggered automatically, by a relevant change of its inputs or in response to receiving a signal from another transmitter, for example. Again, the packet contains a control signal that
is intended to control something at the receiving end and may also contain data. As above,
it is possible for the packet to get lost and never reach the receiver. However, if enough
energy is available from the energy source, and the module has been configured to do so,
then another packet or packets containing the control signal may be transmitted at a later
time.
The device is capable to operate as a repeater, which can receive signals from the following
list of FCC/IC approved transmitters, and retransmit the signals.
