| Overview

The HyperStat is part of Carrier's vertically integrated suite of intelligent building solutions, delivering multi-mode sensing, remote monitoring , and individual zone control for the comfort and productivity of building occupants, for more information refer to HyperStat Installation & HyperStat UI.

With the vision towards platform play and greater interoperability in the building management space, the HyperStat is built and developed in such a way that it can either, work in a Carrier BMS environment connected to Carrier's CCU configured for system and terminal level profiles, or can support an external Modbus network as a Modbus client, or it can also work as an independent or standalone device which can work as per profiles which can be configured in the HyperStat itself.

The HyperStat as Modbus Client feature provides the capability to the customer, to configure a HyperStat with any Modbus device and read the data from the Modbus device in a certain format. with its powerful onboard sensors HyperStat can be an excellent asset to the Modbus network-supported BMS.

| Wiring

The wiring that is used to connect a Modbus device to a HyperStat is called the RS485 system. The RS485 connector uses a three-wire protocol as shown below:

It comprises an earthing wire and a twisted pair of wires. Every Modbus device has an 'A' and 'B' indication in them, for aiding the wiring.

The earthing or the ground wire is usually earthed only at one point. Normally, this connection is made at one end of the main cable, in this case, it is connected to the ground point of the HyperStat.

For the Twisted pair of wires, there are no specific color criteria that are followed, it can be of any color. The wire that is connected to the 'A' indication point in the Modbus device is connected to the 'A' indication point in the HyperStat, and the wire that is connected to the 'B' indication point in the Modbus device is connected to the 'B' indication point in the HyperStat.

For other factors to be considered while wiring an RS485 cable kindly refer to Modbus Wring and General Guidelines

| Wiring Harness

The Carrier supports a type of wiring harness to meet the need for Daisy Chain HyperStat in a Modbus network.

4 Pin to 6 Wire Screw Connector

This uses a 4-pin Molex connector at one end and a 6-wire, screw connector at the other end, You can simply twist the four wires and insert them into the screw slots provided for connection.
