What can be used to provide serial communications from the ATV66, ATV58 or Econflex or 58M to Siemens Building Controls, Landis - Gyr or Landis - Staefa P1, Apogee network?
Square D connects to an Apogee 600 System using ATV66 with NR&D A66P1 communications card ( no longer available).
Apogee uses P1 protocol. Another name associated with P1 protocol is FLN (Floor Level Network). Historically, FLN was the name used prior to P1.
There were two options availble for ATV58.
These parts were not made by SquareD. SquareD distributors were able to buy directly from Panel-Tec. This device is a gateway from modbus to P1 protocols
Contact Panel Tec for more details. The phone number is (800) 869-2026.
The 1000-6A58K/P1 could be used if the P1 converter is using the keypad port. This version does NOT require an external power supply because it uses the supply normally reserved for the keypad.
The 1000-6A58O/P1 could be used with either the keypad port or the ModBus option card part # VW3A58303U. It does require an external 24Vdc supply.
If the customer is not sure which ModBus port he is going to use, recommend the 1000-6A58O/P1 and a power supply, so we cover both possibilities.
For the 8839 58M drives, the option number was E238. ( no longer available)
As of March 2005, this modification does not show up in the ATV58 catalog or the ATV58M user manual. It iis no longer available in the on line product selector.
