Product Information

Product Information

The AXB-TM5Television Manager is amicroprocessor-basedtelevision controller. TheAXB-TM5can be configured as a peripheral on the AXlink. As part of an Axcess Control System, provides media source selection and management via remote control. TheAXB-TM5acts as a local AXlink bus controller and as a receiver for an AMX wireless control panel.

Device DIP Switch

The eight-positionDevice DIP switch, shown in FIG. 2, sets the AXlink device number. Every device on the bus must have a unique device code. Aneight-positionDIP switch is used to set the device number for theAXB-TM5.The device number must match the number assigned in the Axcess software program. The AXlink device number range is1-255and is sent according to the Device DIP switch positions and their values.

After setting the AXlink device number, remove and reconnect the AXlink connector on the AXB-TM5to store the new number into memory.

As an example, FIG. 2 is set to 85 (1 + 4 + 16 + 64 = 85), which is the factory default setting.

The following table describes the Device Code DIP switch settings and its corresponding DIP switch arrangements.

The device number takes effect only on power-up.If you later change the device number, remove and reconnect the AXlink connector. This enters the new device number into memory.

AMX standard device numbers are assigned as follows:

!Cards are 1 through 25.

!Boxes are 96 through 127.

!Panels are 128 through 255.

Connection and Wiring

Wiring the Rear Panel

Preparing/connecting captive wires

You will need a wire stripper and flat-bladescrewdriver to prepare and connect the captive wires.

Never pre-tinwires forcompression-typeconnections.

Do not connect power to the AXB-TM5until the wiring is complete. If you are using power from AXlink, disconnect the wiring from the control system before wiring theAXB-TM5.If you are using an optional 12 VDC power supply, apply power to theAXB-TM5only after installation is complete.

1.Strip 0.25 inch of wire insulation off all wires.

2.Insert each wire into the appropriate opening on the connector according to the wiring diagrams and connector types described in this section.

3.Do not tighten the screws excessively; doing so may strip the threads and damage the connector.

Wiring Guidelines

The AXB-TM5requires 12 VDC power to operate properly. The power can be supplied by the AMX system's AXlink cable or with an optional 12 VDC power supply. The maximum wiring distance between the control system andAXB-TM5is determined by power consumption, supplied voltage, and the wire gauge used for the cable. The following table lists wire sizes and the maximum lengths allowable between theAXB-TM5and the control system. The maximum wiring lengths are based on a minimum of 13.5 volts available at the control system's power supply.

Wiring Guidelines @ 200 mA

Wire size

Maximum wiring length

 

 

18 AWG

586.55 feet (178.78 meters)

 

 

20 AWG

22 AWG

231.48 feet (70.56 meters)

 

 

24 AWG

145.91 feet (44.47 meters)

 

 

If the AXB-TM5is installed farther away from the control system than recommended in the above table, connect an external 12 VDC power supply to thetwo-pinPWR connector on the rear panel.

Using the AXlink connector for data and power

To use the AXlink 4-pinconnector for data communication and for power supply, the incoming PWR and GND cable from the control system must be connected to the AXlink cable connector going to the control system as sown in the AXlink wiring diagram (FIG. 3).

IR emitter to device installation

The following steps describe the installation of the IR emitter to the television IR window.

1.Using a sharp edged tool (knife blade, razor knife, etc.), separate the factory-installedshell as shown inFIG. 5.

FIG. 5 Removingfactory-installedshell

2.Test-fitthe IR shield(FIG. 6) to the television's IR window. If necessary, use scissors and trim the shield to fit.

The optional AMX Power Current Sensor (PCS) provides power sensing for equipment that does not generate horizontal scan frequencies. Connect the optional PCS as shown in FIG. 9 for automated power control using Send_CommandsPON andPOF. APIN command must be sent to theAXB-TM5either from terminal mode or from within an Axcess program. IfPIN is not used, then the PCS state is received as[TM-Device, 251] for I/O 1.
