FIG. 1 NI-700NetLinx Integrated Controller (front and rear views)

Overview

The NI-700unit(FG2105-03)is geared to meet the specific control and automation needs of a single room environment, where both price and functionality are the driving requirement. This product is configured to control a limited number of video players, projectors, lighting, thermostats, and other electronic equipment. TheNI-700provides support for1 IR/Serial Output port,2 RS-232/RS-422/RS-485ports,4 Digital Input/Output ports, and1 IR RX port.

ATTENTION!

When working with the NI-700Integrated Controller, verify you are using the latest version of NetLinx Studio v 2.2build 78 or higher (available for download fromwww.amx.com).

Power:

• 280 mA @ 12 VDC

 

 

Memory:

• 32 MB SDRAM

 

16 MB Flash chip

 

512 Kb of Non-volatileSRAM

 

• Refer to the NetLinx Integrated Controllers Instruction Manual for more

 

 

information.

 

 

Microprocessor:

• 304 MIPS using a PowerPC™ processor

 

 

Weight:

• 1.30 lbs (0.59 kg)

 

 

Enclosure:

• Metal with black matte finish

 

 

Front Panel:

• Program Port: RS-232DB9 connector (male) can be connected to a

 

 

DB9 port on a PC. This port can be used with both Serial and NetLinx

 

 

commands.

 

• Configuration DIP Switch: Use this DIP switch to set the communication

 

 

parameters for the Program port.

 

• IR RX LED: Red LED lights to indicate when IR data is being received

 

 

via the rear IR RX port.

 

• IR LED: Red LED lights to indicate transmission of IR or Serial data

 

 

via the rear IR port.

 

• I/O LEDs: Four yellow LEDs light when the rear I/O channels 1-4are

 

 

active. LED indicator for each I/O port reflects the state of that

 

 

particular port.

 

• Serial LEDs: Two sets of red and yellow LEDs light to indicate the rear

 

 

DB9 Ports 1 & 2 are transmitting or receiving RS-232,422, or 485

 

 

data. These LEDs do not reflect changes in either the RTS or CTS

 

 

when hardware handshaking is used.

 

• LINK/ACT: Green LED lights when the Ethernet cable is connected and

 

 

an active link is established. This LED also blinks when receiving

 

 

Ethernet data packets.

 

• Status: Green LED lights to indicate that the system is programmed

 

 

and communicating properly.

 

• Output: Red LED lights when the Controller transmits data, sets

 

 

channels On and Off, sends data strings, etc.

 

• Input: Yellow LED lights when the Controller receives data from button

 

 

pushes, strings, commands, channel levels, etc.

 

• ID Pushbutton: Sets the NetLinx ID (Device only) assignment for the

 

 

device.

 

 

 

NI-700Specifications (Cont.)

Rear Panel:

RS-232/422/485(Ports 1 & 2): TwoRS-232/422/485control ports

 

 

using DB9 (male) connectors with XON/XOFF (transmit on/transmit

 

 

off), CTS/RTS (clear to send/ready to send), and 300-115,200baud.

 

IR RX (Port 5): This single port is used to connect one or more

 

 

(8 maximum) IRX-SM+swivel mount orIRX-DM+Decora mount IR

 

 

receivers.

 

 

The IR RX port functions using AMX IR codes (38 KHz and 455 KHz)

 

 

and works ONLY with AMX IR Receivers such as the IRX-DM+and

 

 

IRX-SM+.

 

• Digital I/O (Port 4):Four-channelbinary I/O port for contact closure

 

 

with each input being capable of voltage sensing. Input format is

 

 

software selectable with interactive power sensing for IR ports.

 

• IR/Serial (Port 3): This single port is capable of generating IR with the

 

 

use of an IR emitter (while in IR mode). This port can support

 

 

high-frequencycarriers of up to 1.142 MHz and can also generate IR

 

 

with no carrier frequency.

 

• AXlink LED: One green LED indicates the state of the AXlink port.

 

• AXlink port: 4-pin3.5 mmmini-Phoenix(male) connector provides data

 

 

and power to external control devices.

 

• Ethernet port: LEDs show communication activity, connections,

 

 

speeds, and mode information:

 

 

L/A-link/activity - Green LED lights On when the Ethernet cables are

 

 

connected and terminated correctly and blinks when receiving

 

 

Ethernet data packets.

 

 

SPD-speed - Yellow LED lights On when the connection speed is

 

 

100 Mbps and turns Off when the speed is 10 Mbps.

 

Power port: 2-pin3.5 mmmini-Phoenix(male) connector
