The SmartBob II Momentum Universal Communication Module (MUCM) enables the operator to tie SmartBob II remotes into an existing control system. It is primarily used when performing communication translations between serial protocols. The MUCM has a pre-loaded SmartBob II application stored in flash memory. The standard SmartBob II MUCM allows a Modbus serial master to gather data from up to 32 BinMaster SmartBob II remotes. The MUCM is easy to program and eliminates the need for analog input and output cards. The MUCM can also be used simply to save wiring and installation costs--allowing serial devices to make use of existing network cabling--and to overcome distance limitations.
