The Terminator modules are designed to provide electrical termination for twisted pair channels. In a free topology TP/FT-10 segment, one terminator is required, and may be placed anywhere on the segment. In a bus topology TP/FT-10 channel, two terminators are required—one at each end of the bus. Bus topology TP/XF-78 and TP/XF-1250 channels require two terminators.
The insulated covering over the terminators permits them to be mounted behind LonPoint Type 1 or Type 2 Base Plates, in junction boxes, or in electrical enclosures. The terminators are passive devices and do not require electrical power.
