  • Belimo MP Bus with Saia PCD®

Introduction

The Belimo MP Bus allows to connect actuator drives and sensors to a bus and simplify the cable work significantly for HeaVAC applications.With PCD2.F2810 (for PCD1.M2xx0 and PCD2.M5) and PCD3.F281 modules (for PCD3 systems) a PCD system can be connected to the MP Bus as master. These modules can be extended by a PCD7.F180 in order to add a second MP Bus line per module (up to 8 (16*1) devices can be connected to one MP Bus line).

A PCD2 or PCD3 can handle up to 64 (128*1) MP devices

The connection and the distribution of the addresses of the MP Bus devices is programmed in Fupla with a dedicated FBox library.

Amount of MP Bus devices which can be connected per PCD

Per MP Bus line 8 (16*1) MP Bus devices can be connected. This results in the following maximum amount of devices per PCD system.

PCD1.M2x20 (80max)

  • 2 x PCD2.F2810 equipped with a PCD7.F180S
    1 x PCD7.F180S on socket A

  • 2x16 (2x32*1) devices
    8 (16*1) devices

PCD2.M5xx0 (160max)

  • 4 x PCD2.F2810 equipped with a PCD7.F180S
    2 x PCD7.F180S (on socket A1 and A2)

  • 4x16 (4x32*1) devices
    2x8 (2x16*1) devices

PCD3.Mxxx0 (128max)

  • 4 x PCD3.F281 equipped with a PCD7.F180S

  • 4x16 (4x32*1) devices

PCD3.T666 (16 max)

  • 1 x PCD3.F180 on slot 0

  • 1x8 (1x16*1) devices

Good to know

*1: If on the same MP-Bus line only new MPL/MPX devices are used then it's possible to connect up to 16
      devices on the same MP-Bus line. See the FAQ 102015 and 102016 for more details.
      As soon as old MP-Bus devices are used then the maximum of devices is limited to 8 for each MP-Bus line.

The FBoxes for MP Bus are automatically installed with PG5 2.0 but need to be licensed.

For older systems the MP Bus modules PCD2.T500 and PCD7.F180 can be used.
