Connect and Communicate with SmartWire-DT®

One system, countless possibilities. Up to 99 devices can be interconnected with the new SmartWire-DT® line, independently of the selected bus system of the higher-level control, up to a maximum overall total length of 600 m. The SmartWire-DT® line always commences on a control with SmartWire-DT® Master or on a gateway. From here the “green” flat cable originates and interconnects the devices inside and outside the control panel right up to the termination resistor.

Cable technology
The “green” eight-pole flat cable is the lifeline of the SmartWire-DT® and interconnects all devices. The flat cable has two prominent distinguishing features: Arrows indicate the direction of the cable from the control or gateway to the bus termination and the black marking indicates the mounting orientation of the devices and the flat connector.

In addition to the data lines, the supply voltages for the devices (15 V DC) and the control (24 V DC) of the contactors are included in the cable.

Addressing of the SmartWire-DT® devices is undertaken automatically at the push of a button on the gateway in the sequence in which the devices are connected.
