Multiple RS 485 to single channel
Machines with BMS system
The Multiplexer unit is used to connect multiple RS 485 masters on a single channel. This is particularly useful when you want to connect a Tor edge gateway to a machine that is already connected to a BMS system.
Frequently Asked Questions
The multiplexer is used when a single RS 485 slave needs to be connected to two masters. A practical example of this is when a BMS system and an IoT gateway needs to be connected to a single RS 485 port.
Typically the device that has a low polling rate needs to be given higher priority. Between a BMS system and an IoT system, the IoT system has a lower polling rate and should be given a higher priority.
