rack should be such that the amount of air flow required
for safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.
3.
Mechanical loading — Mounting of the equipment in the
rack should be such that a hazardous condition is not
achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
4.
Circuit overloading — Consideration should be given to
the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit and
the effect that overloading of the circuits might have on
overcurrent protection and supply wiring. Appropriate
consideration of equipment nameplate ratings should be
used when addressing this concern.
5.
Reliable earthing (grounding) — Reliable earthing of
rack-mounted equipment should be maintained.

The length of exposed (stripped) copper wires is critical.
The ideal length is 3/16” (5 mm).
• If the stripped section of wire is longer than 3/16”, the
exposed wires may touch, causing a short circuit
between them.
• If the stripped section of wire is shorter than 3/16”,
wires can be easily pulled out even if tightly fastened
by the captive screws.
Do not tin the stripped power supply leads before
installing the captive screw connector. Tinned wires are
not as secure in the captive screw connectors and could
be pulled out.

Remote Control
The switcher’s rear panel Remote connector can be connected to
the serial port output of a host device such as a computer or
control system, or to a contact closure device such as the Extron
MMX 32 AAP panel (part #70-277-01, -11, or -21) or
MMX 32 MAAP panel (part #70-277-12 or -22).
RS-232 Control
The RS-232 Remote connection makes software control of the
switcher possible via the Extron Simple Instruction Set (SIS) or
the Extron Windows®-based control program.
The Remote connector on the MMX 32 VGA A is a female
9-pin D connector (figure 3-1). Pins not used for RS-232 control
are assigned to contact closure control as described later in this
chapter. The Remote connector pin assignments are listed in the
table below.

Host-to-switcher instructions
The switcher accepts SIS commands through the remote
connector. SIS commands consist of one or more characters per
command field. They do not require any special characters to
begin or end the command character sequence. Each switcher
response to an SIS command ends with a carriage return and a
line feed (CR/LF = ), which signals the end of the response
character string. A string is one or more characters.
Switcher-initiated message
The following copyright message is initiated by the switcher
when it is first powered on. Vx.xx is the firmware version
number.

When the switcher receives an SIS command and determines
that it is valid, it performs the command and sends a response
to the host device. If the switcher is unable to perform the
command because the command is invalid or contains invalid
parameters, the switcher returns an error response to the host.
The error response codes are:
E01 — Invalid input channel number (too large)
E10 — Invalid command
E12 — Invalid output number (too large)
E13 — Invalid value (out of range)

MMX 32 VGA A • Remote Control
The contact closure system uses the pins on the Remote
connector that are not assigned to RS-232 control (see the table
below for pin assignments). Each contact closure pin
corresponds to an input/output connection, or tie. A tie is made
when one pin is connected to ground. Each pin returns a tally
out signal to the remote control panel after a tie is made,
lighting the control panel LED corresponding to the selected
input.
For contact closure do not use pins 2 or 3.
