If the instrumentation devices to be connected are physically well apart from each other, for instance across several racks, it is recommended that sub-stations be used in order to minimize the amount of cabling required.
Up to seven sub-stations can be connected to a LabManager®.
A sub-station comprises a LabManager® module rack and a bus coupler slide-in module. The sub-stations can be connected either by HiBus™ (LM-BCUI & LM-BCUO/LM-BCUSO) to a LabManager® or by Ethernet (LM-BCUE) to an OS for use with a SoftManager™.
If more slide-in modules are required than a LabManager® module rack can accept, then a sub-station can be connected as an expansion using the economical LM-BCUI and LM-BCUSO bus coupler. The maximum length of cable between the bus couplers for this is 1 m.
All LabManager® interface slide-in modules can be used.
