• Program Port:
DB9 port on a PC. This port can be used with both Serial and NetLinx
• 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
active. LED indicator for each I/O port reflects the state of that
• Serial LEDs: Two sets of red and yellow LEDs light to indicate the rear
DB9 Ports 1 & 2 are transmitting or receiving
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
using DB9 (male) connectors with XON/XOFF (transmit on/transmit
off), CTS/RTS (clear to send/ready to send), and
IR RX (Port 5): This single port is used to connect one or more
The IR RX port functions using AMX IR codes (38 KHz and 455 KHz)
and works ONLY with AMX IR Receivers such as the
• Digital I/O (Port 4):
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
with no carrier frequency.
• AXlink LED: One green LED indicates the state of the AXlink port.
• AXlink port:
