When should end-of-line (EoL) terminating resistors be installed on a BACnet/MSTP network?
TAC IA Series
Knowing where to implement the termination helps reduce signal reflections, which might cause issues in the system.
Resistors of 120 ohm value must be installed at each end of a MSTP (or RS-485) trunk segment. They help reduce signal reflections and RF interference. Failure to install end-of-line resistors may result in intermittent communications.
