1. Introduction
Congratulations on your purchase of the Load Monitor, CAN Bus Node, an intelligent
plug-and-play module to decentralize and expand the functionality of your Smartpack
based DC power supply system.

About this Guide


This booklet provides you with the required information for installing the Load Monitor,
CAN Bus Node in your Smartpack based DC power supply system. The booklet also
presents the Load Monitors technical specifications.
For more detailed description of the Load Monitor, CAN Bus Node, read the Users Guide
Smartpack Monitoring and Control Unit, Art. 350003.013.
For description of how to activate and configure the Load Monitor, CAN Bus Node using
the PowerSuite PC program, refer to the PowerSuite online Help system.

System Diagram CAN Bus Nodes


The Load Monitor, CAN Bus Node is used as a building block in Smartpack based power
supply systems, see Figure 1. Other CAN bus nodes, like the Battery Monitor and the
I/O Monitor, may also be connected to the bus. The nodes are powered directly from the
CAN bus, and have dedicated inputs and outputs that expand the system monitoring and
control capability.
The Smartpack controller monitors and controls the whole system, and serves as the local
user interface between you and the system. The PowerSuite application enables you to
configure and operate system from a personal computer.

2. Terminate the CAN bus, by
e.g. removing the CAN bus termination plug from the controller and plugging it on
the last connected Load Monitor. Read chapter CAN Bus Termination, page 9
3. Attach the Load Monitor to a suitable surface;
Read chapter Fastening the Load Monitors, page 7
4. Connect the required input cabling to the terminals;
Read chapter Connection Drawing, page 8
5. Configure the Load Monitor nodes operation,
using the PowerSuite application, read chapter About PowerSuite Configuration,
page 11

Fastening the Load Monitors


You mount the Load Monitor CAN Bus Node inside the DC power cabinet or subassembly,
using the nodes DIN rail mounting clips, see Figure 2, page 7.
You may also mount 2 screws on a suitable surface and slide the enclosures mounting
slots on the screws heads. Max. heads height is 3 mm, and heads diameter is to be
between 5 and 8 mm, see Figure 2, page 7.

CAN Bus Termination


To ensure a correct bus communication and avoid data reflection, you must always
terminate the CAN bus with two 120 resistors, one at each end of the line (60 bus
impedance).
Smartpack based systems are shipped from factory with the CAN bus already terminated
with 120 resistors. The CAN bus termination is implemented with a special RJ45 plug
with built-in 120 end-of-line resistor.

Example of CAN bus addressing and termination in a Flatpack2 system with two
Load Monitors connected the CAN bus

When connecting Load Monitor nodes (max. 14 nodes) to the CAN bus, you have to
remove the CAN bus termination plug from the Smartpack controllers rear CAN port, and
plug it on one of the CAN ports on the last connected Load Monitor node. See chapter
Removing the Smartpack Controller, page 9.

Removing the Smartpack Controller


To access the CAN bus termination plug from the Smartpack controllers rear CAN port,
release (1) both handle springs see Figure 5, page 9 and use both handles to
cautiously pull out the module. Be careful, as cables are connected to its rear.

Configuration
When connecting Load Monitor nodes to the CAN bus of the Smartpack based DC power
system, you have to configure each of the Load Monitors by:
1. Setting the DIP switches with the correct CAN bus address,
to assign a unique ID number to the Load Monitor, read chapter CAN Bus
Addressing, on page 10
2. Configuring the Load Monitor nodes operation,
using the PowerSuite application, read chapter About PowerSuite Configuration,
page 11

CAN Bus Addressing


The Smartpack controller dynamically software-assigns ID numbers to rectifiers. The
controller registers the rectifiers ID numbers or CAN bus address (01, 02)
together with their Serial Numbers.
The ID numbers (1, 230) on Smartpack controllers and SmartNodes and
Load Monitors ID numbers (49, 5062) are assigned by DIP switches on the nodes side.
A maximum of 14 Load Monitors and or 28 controllers and SmartNodes may be connected
to the CAN bus. Note that if only one Load Monitor is connected, you have to assign it
with ID# 49.

information on how to configure the CAN Bus nodes.
In general, the connected Load Monitor node(s) are
displayed in the PowerSuites Power Explorer pane, under
the Control System node.
For configuring the Load Monitor specific settings such
as its software alarm monitors for fuse monitoring and
current sense inputs, the activation of alarms, etc open
the Load Monitors icon under the Control System node.
