Product Information

The AXB-EM232Enhanced MasterRS-232Controller(FIG. 1) is an AXlink bus device that functions like an AMX Master Card in a single compact enclosure. It is fully compatible with the Axcess Control System and can be used either as astand-alonedevice or with other AMX bus devices. TheAXB-EM232runs complete Axcess programs, and controls other AXlink components and two devices usingRS-232as a control protocol. It can also control devices usingRS-422andRS-485protocols.

Front Panel Components:

 

 

 

AXlink status LED

Green LED lights to indicate AXlink communication as status as follows:

 

• One blink per second : Power is active and AXlink communication is

 

functioning.

 

• Two blinks per second: Devices specified in the master program do not

 

match the specified devices found.

 

• Three blinks per second: Indicates an AXlink communication error.

 

Full-onindicates the following conditions:

 

There is no AXlink control or activity, but power is on.

 

The Axcess program is not loaded.

 

 

RS-232Program connector

This DB-9RS-232connector is used for AMX programming tools, such

 

as Axcess and IRLIB.

 

 

RS-232Program DIP switch

The 8-positionDIP switch configures the communication parameters for

 

the Program port.

 

 

TX1 and RX1 LEDs

The red LEDs indicate that the AXB-EM232is receiving (RX) or transmit-

 

ting (TX) RS-232,RS-422,orRS-485data. RX1 and TX1 correspond to

 

Port 1 on the rear panel (See Rear Panel Components for a description

 

of Port 1).

 

 

RS-232/4221 and 2 DIP

The two 8-positionDIP switches configure the communication parame-

Switches

ters for the Ports 1 and 2 (See Rear Panel Components for a description

 

of Ports 1 and 2).

 

 

TX2 and RX2 LEDs

The red LEDs indicate that the AXB-EM232is receiving (RX) or transmit-

 

ting (TX) RS-232data. RX2 and TX2 correspond to Port 2 (SeeRear

 

Panel Components for a description of Port 2).

 

 

Rear Panel Components:

 

 

 

Ports 1 and 2

There are two serial connectors: Port 2 is a 6-wireRS-232captive-wire

 

connector; Port 1 is an 8-wireRS-232/422captive wire connector.

 

 

AXlink connector

The AXlink connector is a 4-wire,captive-wireconnector for data and

 

power.
