Series QuickServer Fieldbus – MBus
The M-Bus QuickServer Gateway is configurable to act as both a Master and a Slave M-Bus device. As an M-Bus Master the number of devices supported is limited to up to 64 devices as the FieldServer provides power to the M- Bus. The M-Bus master interrogates the slave devices as the gateway acts as a Client. It will request information from the slave devices and receive and process only the expected responses. As an M-Bus Slave the maximum number of devices on the M-Bus is limited to the M- Bus standard of 250. The gateway will act as an M-Bus Slave and will respond only to requests from the M-Bus master devices.
