TIS Wired Automation Technology
Based on "Advanced RS485" Communication, this 2-Way TIS-BUS drives many TIS hardware devices and commands, monitors, and controls them simultaneously via 2-way communication using a simple 4-Core Twist Pair Data Cable that is widely available in the market.
The TIS-BUS has gateways to AIR-BUS (Wireless TIS Products) through an AIR-BUS Convertor. It also communicates with UDP/TCP via a TIS-IP-Port.
Using TIS-BUS technology, an installer can connect up to 64 Devices on one cable that can reach up to 1200 meters in length.
If the installer links several BUS loops together using network bridges (TIS-IP-PORT), then up to 65280 devices per network can be smoothly linked.
TIS-BUS has very flexible connectivity. It primarily uses a daisy chain, and it can be either an open or closed loop/ring or star topology wiring.
TIS-BUS Operating Voltage
The TIS-BUS Engine can work across a wide range between 8-32 Volts. Moreover, it is considered green because it only consumes 15-32mA for most devices during operation. The TIS-BUS uses 4 wires (2 pairs): one pair for data communication and the other for power. The TIS-BUS also has several lines of protection, including reverse polarity protection, short circuit protection, overload protection, overheat protection, and more.
