AL-512-00-868 IP-ENOCEAN-BRIDGE PoE V1
Ethernet to EnOcean interface
The actually smartest available interface between a PLC with Ethernet interface and maybe several hundreds of EnOcean wireless sensors and actuators is the new and innovative
AL-512-00-868 IP-ENOCEAN-BRIDGE PoE V1.
This bridge is the first device of our new product familiy called EnoDisc.
This EnoDisc has the following main properties:
- Power supply voltage: Power Over Ethernet PoE / 48 V DC
- 1x Ethernet (10/100 MBit) on LSA interface block
- 1x EnOcean transceiver 868.3 MHz, bidirectional
Since we developed this product as an open and standardized interface, the EnoDisc uses the EnOcean Serial Protocol 3 (ESP3) to receice and transmit data from/to the Ethernet.
The combination of communication and power supply by PoE makes this device quite flexible and easy to use. Only one cable, no line voltage is needed.
As one main feature, you are free to select brand and type of Internet router, when you need a local GSM connection.
The EnoDisc comes in an on-wall housing with a modern design, and can be easily mounted to the ceiling. The electrical connection is done using a standard LSA tool for Ethernet cables.
New: Webserver with EnOcean-Monitor
For your support during programming and system bring-up in your EnOcean based projects, we implemented a webserver with an EnOcean Monitor on the AL-512-00-868 IP-ENOCEAN-BRIDGE PoE V1. In this way, you do not need other SW or HW tools to analyze EnOcean data traffic.
Further websites provide, for example, access to the IP configuration of the device.
Examples / Data access by MODBUS TCP
Our DBA driver for building automation
For sure you can use any third party PLC to read from and to write to the EnoDisc using the ESP3 standard (EnOcean Serial Protocol 3).
In a more convenient way, you can do this with our own control units.
On any device of our series VL-BASE, VL-SMART and VL-STYLE, you can easily setup the data communication channel to the EnoDisc using the pre-installed DEUTA DBA (Driver for Building Automation) on the device.
The DBA driver for building automation in detail – chapter EnoDisc
Besides many other functions, the DBA supports for sure also the EnoDisc. To read data from and to send data to EnOcean, a set of dedicated MODBUS TCP registers is used.
To be ready to receive data from an EnoDisc, you only have to setup the IP address, the EnOcean ID and the type of EEP of a sensor into the registers.
Then you have immediately direct access to the EnOcean data of the sensor (for more detailed information, please check the DAB driver’s manuak an the application notes).

For your better understanding, below you will find an overview of the relevant MODBUS register tables for the EnoDisc. For more details, please check the DBA users manual.

Simpliest installation and bring-up
The power supply of the EnoDisc is realized by the communication interface cable (Cat. 5 or better) using Power Over Ethernet (PoE). In this way, you do not need line voltage to supply the EnoDisc, and you can reduce the effort for installation, bring-up and maintenance.
