DORMA TMS LON Networking

The field bus standard LON (Local Operating Network) is suitable to realise large TMS emergency exit control systems with powerful, wide and decentralised networks. However, it is also suitable for small systems, as it allows parametrisation from a central location and the control and monitoring of escape route doors.

  • Central TMS management via LON
  • No continuous operation of PC server required
  • Parallel operation of control panels
  • Ready for complex airlock systems with several doors
  • Free choice of network topology
  • Unlimited network reach and number of nodes

Product details

Perfectly suitable - also for complex applications

Easy cabling via a 2-wire bus cable like for example J-Y (St) Y, twisted pair or fibre-optic cabling. In contrast to RS 485 bus networks with limited range, DORMA LON networks with FFT (Free Topology Transceiver) facilitate the extension of the network and allow both bus topology (line) and free topology networks (star, ring, mixed) with unlimited reach and an unlimited number of components. When LON modules are provided with a binding, you can also realise more complex applications (parallel operation of control panels, fire alarm switch-off for individual doors or airlocks with several door sets etc.).

TMS LON module

The TMS LON module is used to incorporate TL-S TMS 2 control and interface boards, LON control panels as well as SVP-S DCW® and M-SVP-S DCW® motor lock controls into LON networks. The system is connected via a simple plug-in connection.

Flush-mounted TMS LON module

The flush-mounted TMS LON module is ready for installation in device boxes and suitable for connection of emergency exit control components from the flush-mounted TMS Comfort product range, as well as ED 100/250 automatic swing door operators, and ES 200 sliding door operators.

TMS LON gateway

Gateway for the networking of DORMA emergency exit control units withTMS LON modules, and for connection to PC systems with TMS Soft via USB interface. With the TMS Soft software, you can parameterise outputs as desired and visualise them.

LON 1-Port-Repeater FTT

The LON 1-port repeater is required for expansion of the LON circuit for an additional 64 nodes and bus lengths > 900 m.

LON 10-Port-Repeater FTT

The LON 10-channel multi-port repeater is required for expansion of the LON circuit for an additional 64 nodes per port and bus lengths > 900 m. It is also possible to use the multi-port repeater as LON router.


LON LWL (fibre-optic) router for the implementation of different copper media and transmission rates, for example FTT on LWL/fibre optic cabling. Suitable for use in the backbone section over several km.

LON terminating resistor

Resistor to terminate LON FTT networks. Free topology networks require a single terminating resistor and bus topology networks require two terminating resistors.

DCW® LON/LAN input/output module

Bus interface module with four freely programmable inputs and outputs for connection of devices with analogue switching contacts to the DORMA DCW® system bus. In addition, the module is ready for networking via LON module and LON gateway or LAN module. In LON/LAN mode, you can parameterise inputs and outputs as desired and visualise them with the aid of the TMS Soft software.
