BoltSafe CM-1000 Network Adapter

BoltSafe CM-1000 Network Adapter
The CM-1000 Network Adapter box is designed to connect from 1 to 8
individual BoltSafe Sensors CMS to a network cable. A network can
consist of several Network Adapter boxes. The unit is designed to provide
excellent shielding against rough environments and EMC noise.
The CM-1000 performs local processing of the sensor data, converts sensor
values to kN or lbs, stores tag name and alarm limit values, and has a unique
serial number and node number.
This method of decentralising the data processing speeds up the network data
polling considerably. Even in a large network any BoltSafe sensor can be updated
every 1-3 second.
The unit communicates with the network and the polling PC with an RS-485
communication port at a speed of 115.2 kbps. When the system is configured, the
BS-2000 software automatically assigns node numbers to each and every unit
connected to the system. There is no need for any address setting or coding
during installation.
The CM-1000 has short circuit protection for each of the sensors. This prevents
situations where short circuit in one cable or sensor, pulls down and stops the
whole network.
The CM-1000 is delivered in two ways to connect:
• One is prepared with glands and screw terminals for up to 8 BoltSafe Sensors
CMS. This version is to be used for connecting BoltSafe CMS Sensors with
“flying leads”, i.e. no connector plug.
• The other version is prepared with connectors. This version is to be used for
connecting BoltSafe CMS Sensors with connector plugs.
For both ways the Network cable terminators are gland and screw terminals.
