CooLink

RS232/RS485 Interface Adapter for Residential Air Conditioners


Overview


CooLink is a versatile seamless Control adapter that allows controlling of single-split & multi-split air conditioning indoor units by Home Automation Controllers.

Connecting such controllers through common RS232 or RS485 interfaces with the CooLink will provide end-users with full control of air conditioning indoor units parameters integrating them through Home Automation Controllers along with the integration of other controls such as lighting, curtains etc'.

CooLink provides and supports ASCII commands over RS232 protocol and a standard ModBus RTU protocol over RS485

CooLink - Easy home integration

Seamless Easy integration with Home Automation Systems and PC's applications

Interfacing Home Automation Controllers with CooLink is a simple and straight forward task requiring only common ASCII commands over RS232 or simple registers read /write operands over RS485 to fully comply with ModBus RTU specifications.

CooLink RS232

Same RS232 Interface for all VRV/VRF HVAC Systems

All CooLink models provide the same RS232 interface for all VRV/VRF HVAC Systems. So for instance, a home automation application, where a Daikin VRV indoor unit is connected via CooLink, will function exactly the same way for Panasonic VRF, Sanyo VRF, Toshiba VRF etc'. No special interface adaptation will be required to migrate from one CooLink type to another.
