General about SattBus installation

A shielded twisted pair cable with a minimum of 3 twists/m and 80120 characteristic impedance should be used as the bus cable. Minimum area is 0.35 mm 2.
Note!

The same type of cable must be used for the entire SattBus installation. Cable length and number of nodes The total length must not exceed 500 m. Termination The bus cable should be terminated with 100 resistors, connected at the two most remote ends, measured along the cable. See figure above. All units in EPC 50 system, i.e. OP, I/O and MT 50, have internal termination resistors which can be connected/disconnected by jumpers. For EPC 50 I/O-board termination resistor is connected by placing jumper XJ3 in position TERM.

Interconnect several EPC50 units

NOTE!

Before the systems will be interconnected, check that the systems have different identities. Unexpected problems could arise if two systems have the same identity and communication would be delayed. A maximum of nine EPC 50 units can be connected via SattBus to the PC with the REMINDTM program.

The node addresses for each unit must be set before starting up. They are set using the Operators panel. Setting the node addresses All node addresses on SattBus must be unique, which means that each EPC 50 connected to SattBus must have a unique separator identity. The EPC 50 identity is default 1. If one EPC 50 unit is connected, this should have the identity 1, the second unit should have the identity 2 etc. The identity 1 means that all nodes belonging to the unit start at 10, identity 2 means start at 20 etc., see figure below. Monitoring mode means address 18, and Control monitoring mode means address 19. To set the identity, select on the Operators panel menu item Separator Identity In 5, and then select set required identity (19).

Troubleshooting the Network

8.1 Troubleshooting the PC Board Network


Follow the troubleshooting steps below, if an attempt to establish communication with the EPC network using the PC board fails. 1. Is the PC board address appropriately selected? The address is default HD1000, set in the REMIND program and on the PC board. The later should normally not been changed. 2. Is the OMM LED flashing in the front of the PC-board? If no, the PC-board is not appropriately connected to the SattBus network. - Check the SattBus connections. - Check that the EPC units has started and is functioning in an appropriate way. 3. Is the system connected to some nodes but not all? If yes: - Check that the LED OMM in the front of the PC board and the SattBus LED on the EPC 50 I/O board (see figure on page 23) are flashing similarly on all EPCs connected to the network. They must not be off or steady lit. - Check the REMIND system setup. Each EPC system number must correspond to the installation parameter IN5 value in the EPC50 unit. - Check that communication parameter values Fa 94 = 9.6 and Fa 95 = No. - Check that the EPC units which are defined in the system setup, physically are connected to the network.

Follow the troubleshooting steps below, if an attempt to establish communication with the EPC network using the SBSU unit fails. 1. Is the SBSU power supplied? Check that the Power on LED is on. 2. Is the LED SB Active flashing? If no, the SBSU is not correctly connected to the SattBus network. - Check the SattBus connections (see the section on page 17). - Check that the EPC units are started and are functioning in an appropriate way. 3. Are the LEDs TD Channel 1 and/or RD Channel 1 flashing directly after the start of communication? If no, the SBSU is not correctly connected to the PC. - Check that the channel plug is connected to the SBSU Channel 1. - Check that the cable is connected to the appropriate COM port on the PC, as selected in the REMIND EPC 50 program. 4. Are the LEDs TD Channel 1 and/or RD Channel 1 starting to flash directly after start of communication, but then stops? If yes, the connection is OK but there is no response. - Check that the SBSU node identity is appropriately set (see the cover of the SBSU unit). The node identity must have different settings for the two types of REMIND modes. Control&Monitoring: High = 1, Low = 3. Monitoring: High = 1, Low = 2. - Check that the switches in the SBSU unit are in correct positions (see the section on page 17).

12.5 Switch Settings


12.5.1 SattBus Node Identity
Each unit connected to SattBus must have a unique node address between 5 and 125 (decimal). The address is set by the two hexadecimal switches Node identity (see figure on page 40). The switch marked H (High) is used for the most significant hexadecimal digit, and the switch marked L (Low) for the least significant digit. The table below shows how to find the switch settings corresponding to a decimal address.
Low
0 0 1 16 2 32 3 48 4 64 5 80 6 96 7 112 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 A B C D E F

15 31 47 63 79 95 111 -

Example: The H switch set to 4 and the L switch set to 2 means the hexadecimal number 42 representing the decimal address 66.

12.5.2 Filter Address


When the SBSU is used as a bridge, it is transparent for a range of consecutive SattBus addresses set by means of four hexadecimal switches.

REMIND EPC 50 Network Users Manual

A message from a node in SattBus network No. 1 with the destination address X is transmitted to SattBus network No. 2 only if X is in the range set by the low and the high filter addresses of SBSU No. 1, see figure below. In the same way, a message is transmitted from SattBus network No. 2 to network No. 1 only if the destination address Y is in between the low and the high filter addresses of SBSU No. 2.
SattBus network No. 1 SattBus network No. 2

SBSU No.1 Low filter address High filter address

SBSU No.2 Low filter address High filter address

SattBus message with destination address X

SattBus message with destination address Y

The low and high filter addresses are set by means of the hexadecimal switches SW1 and SW2, see figure on page 40. The decimal address in the range 5125 can be read from the table above. Example: An SBSU in bridge configuration is to transmit messages from the SattBus side with destination addresses only in the range 1859
.

1 SW1 SW2 H H

2 L L Low filter address: 18 (decimal) = 12 (hexadecimal) High filter address: 59 (decimal) = 3B (hexadecimal)

When the SBSU is used as an interface to the serial channel of a computer system, all four switches SW1SW2 must be set to zero.
