Installation Instructions ControlNet Modular Repeater Short-distance Fiber Module Catalog Number 1786-RPFS Topic Page Important User Information 2 Environment and Enclosure 3 North American Hazardous Location Approval 4 European Hazardous Location Approval 5 Module Components 6 Mount the Module 6 Connect the Fiber Module 10 Troubleshoot the Module 11 Specifications 12 Additional Resources 16 About the Module Use the 1786-RPFS module when you need a short-distance fiber link between two ControlNet products. Maximum distance is 300 m (984 ft). The fiber link provides ground isolation between nodes and is less susceptible to noisy environments than copper media. IMPORTANT The supported distance depends on the quality of the fiber, number of splices, and connectors. The total light loss through the fiber link must be less than 4.2 dB. 2 ControlNet Modular Repeater Short-distance Fiber Module Important User Information Solid-state equipment has operational characteristics differing from those of electromechanical equipment.

Indicators Protective Caps Right-side Backplane Connector with Protective Cap Channel 1 Fiber Port Module Locking Tab Channel 2 Fiber Port . Both sides of the module contain a backplane connector. 30073 Mount the Module Mount the module on a 35 x 7.5 mm (1.38 x 0.30 in.) DIN rail, Allen-Bradley part number 199-DR1, 46277, EN 50022. 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. TIP Horizontal mounting is preferred. Vertical mounting is allowed. We recommend that the 1786-RPA/B repeater adapter module be mounted at the top if vertical mounting is chosen. Rockwell Automation Publication 1786-IN012B-EN-P - November 2010 ControlNet Modular Repeater Short-distance Fiber Module 7 Mounting Dimensions 111 (4.44) 100 (4.0) 69 (2.76) 96.8 (3.87) 90 (3.6) All dimensions are in mm (in.). 30082 1. Position the module at a 30° angle. 30075 2. Hook the lip on the back of the module to the top of the DIN rail and press the bottom of the module until the locking tab snaps securely in place. TIP Use a screwdriver to move the locking tab downward, if the module is not secured. Rockwell Automation Publication 1786-IN012B-EN-P - November 2010 8 ControlNet Modular Repeater Short-distance Fiber Module WARNING: 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. Protective Backplane Cap DIN Rail Protective Cap Both sides of the module contain a backplane connector. 30078 If Then You will connect another module Remove the protective backplane cap. You will not use the backplane connector Keep the protective cap on to protect the connector from dust. 3. If necessary, remove the protective caps from the transmit and receive fiber channels. ATTENTION: Do not discard the end cap. Use this end cap to cover the exposed interconnections on the last module on the DIN rail. Failure to do so could result in equipment damage. Rockwell Automation Publication 1786-IN012B-EN-P - November 2010 ControlNet Modular Repeater Short-distance Fiber Module 9 If Then You will use a channel Remove the protective cap from the channel. You will not use a channel Keep the protective cap on to protect the channel from dust. You place the module in storage Keep the protective cap on to protect the channel from dust. 4. If applicable, slide the module to the left to mate with the repeater adapter or another repeater module. 30077 IMPORTANT Make certain that you secure the adapter and repeater modules with DIN-rail anchors. If you do not, loss of communication or module damage may result. Consult with your local distributor for attenuation specifications before you purchase your fiber media components. You can attach a maximum of four modules to the repeater adapter, or, the number of modules whose total power consumption does not exceed 1.6 A @ 5V DC, whichever occurs first. IMPORTANT If you exceed the module or power limit, you may damage the repeater adapter and modules. Rockwell Automation Publication 1786-IN012B-EN-P - November 2010 10 ControlNet Modular Repeater Short-distance Fiber Module Connect the Fiber Module This module requires a pre-terminated zipcord wiring kit. The kits are offered in a variety of lengths. Consult with your local distributor for attenuation specifications before you purchase your fiber media components. The zipcord uses a duplex cable that contains two separate fibers, one for transmit and one for receive. If you are wiring only one channel, you can use either channel 1 or channel 2. 1. Hold down the latch and insert the channel 1 zipcord connector into the A and B connectors until the pins and latch lock into place. Make certain you insert the blue pin, receive, of the zipcord connector in A and the black pin, transmit, into B. Channel 1, A and B Channel 2, A and B 30079 2. Hold down the latch and insert the other end of the duplex cable into another module by using either channel 1 or channel 2 of the other module. IMPORTANT The duplex cable is manufactured with the fiber reversed on opposite ends. This automatically connects channel A of one unit to channel B of the other. Do not connect more than one duplex fiber or two simplex fibers between the same modular repeaters, even if they are from different modules on the same repeater. Rockwell Automation Publication 1786-IN012B-EN-P - November 2010 ControlNet Modular Repeater Short-distance Fiber Module 11 ATTENTION: Under certain conditions, viewing the optical port may expose the eye to hazard. When viewed under some conditions, the optical port may expose the eye beyond the maximum permissible exposure recommendations Troubleshoot the Module Use the channel 1 or 2 status indicators to check module status and troubleshoot the module. Channel 1 Status Channel 2 Status 30081 Indicator Probable Cause Off Repeater not connected to the power supply. Green Channel is operating normally. Flashing Green No activity on the channel. ATTENTION: Class 1 laser product. Laser radiation is present when the system is open and interlocks bypassed. Only trained and qualified personnel should be allowed to install, replace, or service this equipment.
