Product Information

Product Information

The NXI NetLinx Integrated Controller represents the new generation of AMX multi-portcentral controllers. The NXI can be programmed to controlRS-232/422/485,Relay, IR/Serial, and Input/Output devices using the NetLinx programming language and NetLinx Studio program. Depending on your specific control needs, the NXI can be equipped with either a Master or Hub Card. For use as a master controller, the NXI accepts theNXC-ME260NetLinx Master Card.

Front and Rear Panel Components

Remove the faceplate to see the front panel (FIG. 1) containing groups of colored LED indicators that light when their corresponding control ports receive/ transmit data. These LEDs are grouped by control type, and are numbered according to their corresponding port (connector) numbers on the rear panel. The rear panel contains all of theRS-232/422/485,Relay, IR/Serial and I/O connectors, plus the ID pushbutton and ICSP LED. Figure 1 shows the front and rear panels of the NXI.

Channel range = 1-32,767

 

• Channels 1-253(output): IR commands.

 

• Channel 254 (feedback): Power Fail (used with 'PON' and 'POF'

 

commands).

 

• Channel 255 (feedback): Power status (when IOLink is set).

I/O port (#16)

8-channelI/O port for contact closure,0-5VDC voltage sensing, or interac-

 

tive power sensing for IR ports.

 

Channel range = 1-8

NXI Specifications (Cont.)

Rear Panel Components:

 

RS-232/422/485(ports1-6)

Six 10-pin(male) connectors that supportbi-directionalRS-232/422/485

 

communication (XON/XOFF, CTS/RTS, 300-230,400baud).

 

• Channel range = 1-255

 

• Channels 1-254provide feedback only.·

 

• Channel 255 (CTS Push channel): Reflects the state of the CTS input if a

 

'CTSPSH' command was sent to the port.

Relay (port 7)

Three 8-pin(male) relay connectors (normally open) that support up to 12

 

independent external relay devices. Each relay can switch up to 24 VDC or

 

28 VAC @ 1 A.

 

• Channel range = 1-12

IR/Serial (ports 8-15)

Two 8-pin(male) connectors that support IR or serial (wired) IR control.

 

The eight IR/Serial control ports support high-frequencycarriers up to

 

1.14 MHz.

 

• Channel range = 1-32,767

 

• Channels 1-253:= IR commands

 

• Channel 254: = PowerFail (used with 'PON' and 'POF' commands)

 

• Channel 255: = Power status (when IOLink is set)

I/O (port 16)

8-channelI/O port for contact closure,0-5VDC voltage sensing, or interac-

 

tive power sensing for IR ports.

 

• The 10-pin(male) connector has inputs that detect0-1.5VDC (low) as a

 

Push, and 3.5-5VDC (high) as a Release.

 

• When used as an input, each of the eight I/O ports act as a switch to

 

ground and are rated at 200 mA @ 12 VDC.

 

• Channel range = 1-8
