Laid is standard NYM cables, recommended is five-pole cable so that one wire is free for future use.
The bus modules are immediately connected to the house wiring, without external power supplies or filters. Loads are connected to the bus modules.
Peripherals are connected to the P-, T- or I-Ports of the modules.
LCN needs only one additional wire for data transfer in a conventional installation network. This data wire can be handled without additional rules as LCN complies with VDE regulations. Installation costs remain very low as LCN does not require an additional wiring system, so every building – big or small – benefits from it.
The LCN bus system uses an easy understandable technology and an uncomplicated installation. It is based on intelligent bus modules equipped with a powerful microprocessor. They not only handle all communication, they also control, regulate and monitor all functions in a building, either automatically or requested by the user. A central server is not needed.
LCN modules are interposed between main power and electrical loads like fixtures or motors for shutters or blinds. Sensors for light, presence or motion detection are connected to the bus modules. Also push buttons and remote control elements are connected to the modules directly.
With the parametrization software LCN-PRO the system gets programmed. This can be done prior to the real installation in the electrician’s office. After the installation the parametrization is transferred into the modules.
