  • OverviewTo add more I/O capability to the extensive options already offered by the Elite control panel, up to thirty-two, sixteen channel I/O boards may be connected.

    When using a simple two-wire RS485 communications protocol, these boards may be mounted locally to the control panel or distributed on a bus up to 3,900 feet long by using a suitable cable.

    The flexibility of these boards is further enhanced by the fact that each of the channels is configurable as either an input or an output.

    Each channel may also be configured to produce a variety of input actions or respond to a variety of output types.

    All channels can contribute to, or respond to, system-wide cause and effects logic. Typical uses for I/O boards include geographical LED mimic displays and plant alarm inputs.

    Standard Elite control panels contain fixings for one I/O board, which can easily be connected using four small signal wires to the power and comms bus within the panel.

    Consideration must be taken as to the loading on the main panel.
