How can a BCM module be programmed for 2w modbus on a 4w communication system?

Applying BCM programmed for 2 wire modbus to a 4 wire modbus system

Product Line:
Powerpact and Masterpact breakers with modbus communications

Applies to trip units with BCM

  1. With a newer Micrologic P or H trip unit you may re-program the BCM module to 4w.  This requires firmware version 2010AK or newer.
  2. If the trip unit does not have this option or if it is an A trip unit, you may use a 2w to 4w converter, CNV-100.  See the Attached Instruction Bulletin for more details.
  3. Schneider sales offices can also order a BCM programmed for 4w modbus.  Order the module number, 33106 in Q2C with a note that you want it programmed for "4w Modbus."  
    BCM 33106 profile is available only on Q2C Tool. Regional Field Offices to support order submission for customers who are unable to access Q2C.
