Connection to a Conson system is done via an XP130 gateway module. This module provides an RS485 interface, so either a RS232 to RS485 converter, or a compatible RS485 USB adapter are needed for connecting to BeoLiving Intelligence.
A resource on a Conson system is an input on a module. A module is identified by a module type plus a link number.
Therefore, the complete addressing for a resource is of the form
Events and commands
Changes on a module’s input generate an event on the Conson bus. This is signaled as a circuit make or break event on BeoLiving Intelligence.
Similarly, BeoLiving Intelligence can send circuit make, break, or pulse (make followed by break) to any input of a module.
