CPM 5000 (FT 5000 Control Module)

The CPM 5000 FT 5000 Control Module integrates the FT 5000 high-performance, low-cost Smart Transceiver with the low-cost FT-X3 Communications Transformer, a crystal, and serial memory — for fastest time-to-market with LonWorks® control networking capabilities.

  • Small component mounts vertically and takes up little space for supporting sleek and small product designs
  • Well isolated for reliable communications in electrically noisy environments; Supports communication over long distances; Complies with worldwide communications standards
  • Faster clock, increased capability with support for more network variables, and more inputs/outputs than previous generation products
  • Ideal for multiple products within building automation systems: HVAC, access, lighting, elevators, and many others
  • Polarity insensitivity eliminates the number one cause of field failure — wiring errors; Free topology technology allows wiring in any configuration to save installation time and material 
  • LonMark® certifiable
