Description

Specification

CBLSMCDS series is the "Add-A-Motor"-style power and communications cable for CDS7-equipped SmartMotors. It consists of a feed-thru 7W2 main motor connector split out to a single second motor 7W2 connector. This single cable is capable of carrying power, RS-232 and CAN bus communications from motor to motor using only the 7W2 connector. With the CDS7 option and CBLSMCDS cable(s), you no longer have to use the motor's DB-15 connector for CAN bus communications from motor to motor -- it is already built into the CBLSMCDS cable!

NOTE: CBLSMCDS series cables with blue overmolded connectors are designed for the Class 5 D-Style SmartMotor with the CDS7 option only! DO NOT use these cables with standard Class 5 D-Style SmartMotors.

The CBLSMCDS cable is designed to allow ease of connection to multiple motors in a single daisy-chain network carrying power, RS-232 and CAN bus communications. The main power ground wire is a larger gauge to decrease noise emissions at the ground-plane level. All communications lines are internally shielded from the power lines.

NOTE: The two end nodes of the CAN bus network must be terminated with a 120 ohm terminator (shunt) for proper biasing. If an end node is a SmartMotor, a pass-thru terminator is availble (PN: CBLSM-TR120) that attaches directly to the motor's 15-pin D-sub connector to serve as the terminator.
