An Overview of our CFLink bus - Why choose CFLink?
Posted By Aaron Green - 03 Oct, 2013
Since the release of our initial hardware lineup in May of 2012, one of the most common questions we get is "Why did you create CFLink when Ethernet already exists?"
While the easy method was to go with the crowd, and implement an IP based communications method – we didn’t believe it was the right choice. We chose to go with CFLink based on our experience in the industry, after extensive R&D and after talking to integrators about what they look for when choosing control hardware.
What is CFLink?
Firstly, lets take a look at what CFLink actually is. CFLink is a 5-wire RS485 bus that carries both power and data to devices over a maximum distance of 1.6 kilometers. Up to 238 devices can exist on a single network, and multiple CFLink networks can communicate with each other via Ethernet, providing an endlessly scalable system.
CFLink can run on any cable with 5 or more cores, including CAT5/6 and 2-pair shielded cable. When using CAT5/6, you should use one pair for voltage + and one pair for voltage - to decrease the voltage drop over longer runs.... read on »
