All devices that are suitable for the MasterBus network
are equipped with two communication ports. As soon as
two or more devices are connected with each other via
these ports, they form a local data network.
When creating a MasterBus network, follow the
guidelines given here:
Connections between your devices can be made by using the
Mastervolt UTP cables. The electricity needed for the network
is supplied by the connected devices. At least one in every four
devices in each network must be able to supply power to the
MasterBus. For eight devices there must be two power suppliers,
How to create a MasterBus network
As with all high speed data networks, MasterBus needs a
terminator at both ends of the network.
You need two terminators to close both ends of the network -
communication cables in-between connect a chain of components.
Do not make T-connections with so-called splitters:
A network should always be a chain.
The network should not be circular.
The chain ends at both ends with the terminators.
