Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators

Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators Dupline 3-wire bus for Elevators The signals and power For all the pushbutton Panels and Position Indicators run on the Same 3 wires .

Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators I/O-board with 2 inputs and 2 outputs • Used for the pushbuttons and lamps at the landing stations • Small dimension for easy integration in fixtures • 2 contact inputs with built-in pulse prolongation that ensures that even short button activations are captured by the PLC • 2 PNP transistor outputs for driving the lamps .

Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators I/O-boards with 8 inputs. 8 outputs or 4 In / 4 Out • Used for the pushbuttons and lamps in the car • Built-in pulse prolongation ensures that even short button activations are captured by the PLC • 8 output board is used for control of the .

Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators The Master Module • Channel Generator Function • Serial Interface for the PLC to exchange Dupline I/O-data • Synchronizes the Power Supply on the 3’rd wire with the Dupline signalling .

Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators Interfacing Options The Master Modules read And write directly into the PLC memory .

Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators Max Power Load Rule no.5 V .5 A Rule no. 1 Total Current on the 3’rd wire < 3. 2 Total Current x Resistance in Common Wire < 3.

mm.5V / 1.Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators Max Power Load Example What is the max current on 100m 1.5 sq. Cable has a resistance of app. Cable ? • 100m of 1.3 Ohms = 2.3 Ohms • Max current load = 3. 1.mm.7A .5 sq.

Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators Max Power Load How to increase max current ? • Install an additional Power Supply and a Dupline Power Supply Coupler in the other end of the cable • This increases the max current with a factor of 4. because each power supply supplies half the current in half the wire length .

Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators Installation Rules Do not connect Dupline Common to Ground • .

Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators Dupline Elevator Bus.Features • • • • • Easy to use Robust and reliable Easy to interface to PLC’s Flexible Cost-effective .

Benefits • Reduced installation time (up to 80-90 %) • Reduced cable cost • One-size-fits-all control panel • If a PLC is used. the cost of the Dupline modules is to some extend compensated by the savings on PLC I/O expansion modules and cable .Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators Dupline Elevator Bus.

Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators Our customers until now • Typically middle-sized independent elevator companies without own electronics R&D • Companies using PLC for controls .

have developed their own solutions based on CAN or LON .And their problems • CAN and LON are too expensive solutions especially for the small elevators • CAN and LON er complex bus systems that seem to be overkill for the simple elevators • The big companies are looking for a Cost-effective bus solution for the .Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators Our competitors • The big companies. making complete elevators or elevator controls systems.

LON or Ethernet as upper level bus could be an opportunity to work with the big companies .Dupline 3-wire Bus for Elevators The trend • Elevator control systems without bus solution are to a higher and higher extend considered as old-fashioned The future • Dupline combined with CAN.
