Introduction
The CMSA-100 provides essential automation functionality when used with the USL CMS2200 Cinema Media Server. The unit can function entirely standalone using the front
panel switches to exercise each automation circuit. The two power relay outputs may be
set to be either pulsed or latching via the rear panel switches. The other relay outputs are
momentary.
The front panel buttons will exercise each circuit on the CMSA-100 and the corresponding
LED above each button will indicate the relay state when the buttons are pressed. The
system includes a priority encoder to ensure only a single automation circuit is fired in
cases where more than one button is pressed simultaneously. Below is a list of the front
panel automation switches

System Description
Output Relays (Solid State)
The CMSA-100 has 10 isolated solid-state relays with momentary outputs. These outputs
are rated for 24V AC/DC at 150 mA.
Output Relays (Power)
The CMSA-100 provides two independent contact relay outputs. They are rated for 240
VAC at 10 A. These relays are configurable to be momentary or latching. Each relay
consists of a common, normally open, and normally closed contact. (COM, NO, NC)
Inputs
There are two inputs on the CMSA-100 designed for contact closure inputs.
Interface to CMS-2200
An RJ45 connector with a standard Cat-5 cable is used as the interface to the CMS-2200.
This input is NOT Ethernet and will not function if plugged into Ethernet equipment,
switches or routers. This interface was specifically designed to be used between the
CMSA-100 and the CMS-2200.
Power Supply
The 12VDC, 1.5A power supply provided with the CMSA-100 comes with multiple adapters
for international use. Select the appropriate adapter and install it on the power supply.
The power source must be 100 – 240 VAC, 50 – 60 Hz.
CMSA-100 Manual v131212
Page 7
Mounting
The CMSA-100 comes with two rack-mounting brackets. When attached in forward facing
position, they provide a 19-inch standard rack mount solution. They may also be
attached in a top or bottom facing position to provide a convenient wall or shelf mounting
solution. In all cases, USL recommends mounting the CMSA-100 to provide a stable
configuration and clean installation.
The four holes found on the rear tabs of the CMSA-100 provide a convenient location for
securing automation cables with cable ties. USL recommends carefully routing all
automation cables and securing them to provide strain relief and ease maintenance in the
future.
The CMSA-100 must be mounted in an enclosed equipment rack if it is switching more than
24 volts.
Dimensions
The CMSA-100 is designed to mount into standard 19” equipment rack and consume 1U of
rack space. The overall dimensions are, Height -1.7”, Width - 12.7”, Depth - 4.9” (43mm x
323mm x 124mm).
6.
Installation
Proper installation of the CMSA-100 is dependent on the functions used and the exact
automation configuration that is required. Below is a checklist of installation steps that
should apply to all installations.

Unpack and confirm that all pieces of the CMSA-100 are present and have no shipping
damage.

Set the rear panel switches for pulsed or latched relay outputs. The 240V relay contacts
(Preshow and Option 3) can be configured for pulsed or latched outputs. If set to
latched, separate latch and unlatch buttons and CMS-200 commands are available to
latch and unlatch the relay. If set to pulsed, the button or command pulse is passed
CMSA-100 Manual v131212
Page 8
through. For example, pressing the Preshow On button would close the normally open
contacts as long as the button is held down. The Preshow Off button would have no
function.

If installing into an equipment rack, install the mounting ears onto the CMSA-100
chassis and mount the unit in the rack. The CMSA-100 must be mounted in an enclosed
equipment rack if it is switching more than 24V.

Connect a safety ground to the ground stud on the rear panel of the CMSA-100. Run a
green or green/yellow #14AWG (2.5mm2) wire from the ground stud to the building
safety ground (such as grounded metal conduit).

Select the appropriate power adapter for the DC power supply and plug the supply into
the CMSA-100 and then to the power source. Confirm that the power LED on the front
panel of the unit is on to indicate the unit is powered.

Plan the functionality to be used and be sure the correctly rated cables are installed for
each automation function to be implemented. External overcurrent protection is
required to protect the relay contacts within the CMSA-100 and the associated wiring.
Ensure that the wiring connecting to the relay contacts on the CMSA-100 has
appropriate fuses, circuit breakers, or current limited power supplies.

Properly terminate each automation connection and securely fasten it into the
appropriate connector slot.

Install the connectors into the CMSA-100 to complete the CMSA-100 automation
wiring.

Use the front panel switches to selectively test each of the automation functions to be
sure they are working correctly.

Install a Cat -5 cable between the RJ45 connector labeled “CMS-2200” on the rear of
the CMSA-100 and the RJ45 connection labeled “Automation” on the CMS-2200.


The SMS interface for the CMS-2200 can be used to fully exercise the automation
system and ensure it is functioning properly.
