One 3004-288-5M cable is required with all IP65 integrated motor with an RS-485 or CAN port. The 3004-288-5M is used for setup and programming (if applicable) of an integrated motor. It can also be used in streaming serial command (SCL) applications as a permanent connection between the drive and the host device’s RS-485 port. This cable can also be used with an integrated CANopen motor; RS-232 connections are used for setup and CAN signals are used to connect to the network. For a list of pin outs, see the 2D drawing that is available for download/viewing from the Downloads section of this page.
For multi-axis applications, two of these cables will be needed for each integrated motor to allow for a daisy-chain connection topology.
