  • Connecting more TA devices

    When your system gets more advanced, you might need to connect more devices together, to share data and function together. Typically, they will connect via a CAN bus. A 4-lead standard CAN bus, the best solution is to use twisted pair ethernet cable. Connecting to a device called a CMI, you can access all devices both locally as well as online.

    Some add/on devices, like flow meters, sunshine W/m2 radiance meters and such, are using something called a DL Bus. This is a 2-lead cable connection, working in a different way than the CAN bus. Many TA devices have one or more DL bus ports.
