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

Series 5000 Tools Update Patch 1
If you are using the Echelon Series 5000 chips processors in production devices and plan to use the device NME file for programming external EEPROM memory devices microprocessors, you should apply this update to your development tools.

Series 5000 Tools Update Patch 2
If you are using the Echelon Series 5000 chips in production devices and use the SCI I/O model on those devices, you should apply this update to your development tools, and then follow the usage instructions to ensure a reliable SCI I/O data stream. No other devices that use SCI I/O are affected.
