EMB8000 – Planning notes

The build-in modules of EMB8000 are connected to each other and communicate via the digital network bus.

On delivery respectively as long as the delivered software confi guration is not changed, the modules are self-learning. SHEV groups can be easily and felxibel confi gured by selective lining up of the modules. A new SHEV group is created by adding a Sensor-Module (SM) into the row. All following Drive-Modules (DM / DMX) belong to the new SHEV group.

In the control units with 2 or 3 switch mode power supplies in one housing (48 A and 72 A), the interconnection of Drive-Modules (DM / DMX) and their total current consumption has to be adapted to the current consumption of the individual switch mode power supply at which they are connected. This can be done by replugging the power supply of the modules. The SHEV group to which the DM/DMX belongs is irrelevant. To ensure the optimum of safety in case of a failure of a switch mode power supply, it is recommended to power the DM/DMX of one SHEV group from only one switch mode power supply. The maximum switching capacity of the DM-modules is to be noted.

Due to the compact design of the modules, the module connection terminals for peripheral devices are limited to 1 mm² and for drive lines to 2,5 mm² rigid wire conductors. The cross sections of the wires between control unit and drives depend on the cable length, the current consumption as well as the voltage drop on the line. A 35-mm snap-on mounting rail is provided inside the housing, for additional bigger connection terminals if the required cable cross section is larger than the module-own connection terminals. Suitable connection terminals will be found under „accessories“.

The sizing and equipment of the control units EMB8000 depend on:

  • Number of smoke detectors per CM / SM or per control unit
  • Number of break-glass units per CM / SM or per contrul unit
  • Number of networked control units via CAN-BUS
  • Maximum equipment with modules according to the internal power comsumption, the size of main power supply and the capacity of backup batteries
  • Number of cable entries according to the size of housing and the use of the inputs and ouputs of the modules

EMB8000 standard – Limitation

On the pages in the following you will find a variety of factory fi tted standard control units. The selection was made under consideration of all design aspects which are neccessary for planning as: maximum module equipment depending on the current consumption, size of the power supply, capacity of the backup batteries, maximum number of the cable entries which are depending on the dimensions of the housing and the use of the module inputs and outputs. When using factory fitted standard control units please note the limitations as in the following:

  • Number of smoke detectors per CM / SM 10 pieces
  • Number of break-glass units per CM / SM 10 pieces
  • Number of smoke detectors per control unit 60 pieces
  • Number of break-glass units per control unit 60 pieces
  • Number of networked control units via CAN-BUS 35 pieces1. The order of the module assembly is pre-specified
    2. The factory expension of these control units with additional modules is not possible
    3. The customer-side installation of additional modules within the limitations
    of the control unit is possible
