CNX Relay Output Expansion
Card: CNXRY-16
Description
Functional Description
The CNXRY-16 Relay Output Expansion Card provides 16 isolated, normally open
relay closures. The maximum rating per contact measures 1A, 30 VAC/VDC. There
are MOV (metal oxide varistor) arc supression devices across the contacts for use
with “real world” loads. Refer to the schematic below.

Physical Description
The CNXRY-16, shown below, is a circuit board fastened to an aluminum faceplate.
The card is manufactured to easily fit into an unoccupied slot in a Crestron CNX
Generation Control System.
CNXRY-16 Faceplate
The faceplate contains two identical male, 9-pin connectors. There are eight relay
pins and one common ground pin per connector. Silk screening is applied to the
faceplate; relay pins are labeled A1 through A8 and B1 through B8. Common

ground pins are labeled with a C. Two supplied 9-position connectors can be wired
and attached to connectors A and/or B.

Setup
Installation
Items required to install the CNXRY-16 are already attached to the unit. The only
tools required are a Phillips tip screwdriver and a grounding strap. Follow the
assembly procedure below.
CAUTION: The CNXRY-16 contains electrostatic sensitive devices (ESD);
observe precautions for handling ESDs to avoid damaging the card.
NOTE: If installing the CNXRY-16 into a CNMSX-AV, it is assumed that the
CNXCAGE has been installed.
1.
Disconnect power from the CNMSX.
2.
Use the Phillips tip screwdriver and remove two screws and blank
faceplate from the control system.
3.
Align the CNXRY-16 with the card guides in the open slot and slide
the expansion card into position.
4.
Firmly press both ends of the CNXRY-16 faceplate to seat the
expansion card into the control system connector.
5.
Tighten the thumb-nail screws to secure the CNXRY-16 to the control
system.
6.
Reapply power to the CNMSX.

Preparation for Use
Connections are made to the 16 normally open, isolated relays of the CNXRY-16.
The connectors are labeled A1 through A8 and B1 through B8. Refer to a sample
hookup diagram below and aside from reapplying power to the control system last,
complete the connections in any order.

Programming with SIMPL Windows
SIMPL (Symbol Intensive Master Programming Language) is an easy-to-use
programming language that is completely integrated and compatible with all
Crestron system hardware. The objects that are used in SIMPL are called symbols.
SIMPL Windows offers drag and drop functionality in a familiar Windows®
environment.
SIMPL Windows is Crestron Electronics' software for programming Crestron
control systems. It provides a well-designed graphical environment with a number
of workspaces (i.e., windows) in which a programmer can select, configure,
program, test, and monitor a Crestron control system.
The next two subsections describe a sample SIMPL Windows program that utilizes
the CNXRY-16. The first subsection details how the sample program works with a
textual description and block diagram. The second subsection provides a broad
description of how to actually create the SIMPL Windows program.
NOTE: The following description assumes that the reader has knowledge of
SIMPL Windows. If not, please refer to the extensive help information provided
with the software.
NOTE: There is no need to recreate the sample SIMPL Windows program. A copy
of this program is available from Crestron’s ControlCD (version 4.03 and later).
Search for the CNXRY-16.SMW project in the SIMPL Windows Example Base.

How the Program Works
A basic CNXRY-16 SIMPL program is shown below in block diagram form. For
this example, the CNXRY-16 occupies slot 1 of a CNMSX-PRO. Assume there are
two rooms that have lighting systems that are controlled via relays. Each room can
have up to eight scenes of lighting. A scene is engaged by latching a relay. Only one
scene can be activated in a room at a time.
Block Diagram of CNXRY-16
Room 1 uses relays A1 through A8; room 2 uses relays B1 through B8. When the
user presses any of the buttons for room 1 (join numbers 1-8), the corresponding
signal goes high on the input of the Interlock symbol for room 1. The corresponding
output of the Interlock latches high. Since the Interlock is mutually exclusive, only
that output is high. The corresponding relay then latches high on the CNXRY-16
card.
How to Create the Program
Use the Configuration Manager workspace in SIMPL Windows to select and
configure all the devices that need to be included into the system. For this example,
add a CNXRY-16 to slot #1 of the CNMSX-PRO. Also add a LC-1500 to the
system; its NET ID must be set to 03, shown on the next page.
NOTE: SIMPL Windows v1.19.08 or later is required to program the CNMSXPRO. If using an earlier version of SIMPL Windows, Crestron recommends a
SIMPL Windows and operating system upgrade.

Manager
Use the Programming Manager workspace in SIMPL Windows to select symbols
and assign their respective signals. For this example, a touchpanel and CNXRY-16
symbols were added automatically when the devices were added to the system in the
Configuration Manager workspace. Expand the Network Modules folder and double
click on the touchpanel for a detail view (alternatively CTRL+D or drag and drop
into Detail View). Assign signals as shown below.
