Crestron ST-IO
Input/Output Module
Input/Output Module: ST-IO
Introduction
Features and Functions
There are two Crestron® Input/Output Module configurations available: ST-IO and
STI-IO. Configuration differences depend on which power pack is used. The ST-IO
is supplied with a power pack for a 120V AC supply and the STI-IO is supplied with
a power pack for 220VAC. For purposes of this Operations Guide, the term ST-IO is
used for either configuration.
The ST-IO device has eight relays and four digital voltage/closure inputs. As part of
the Cresnet system, use of an external power pack is optional. This unit can operate
using the Cresnet® voltage or an external power supply.
NOTE: When connected to both the Cresnet power and the external power supply,
the Cresnet power is disconnected.
The ST-IO module incorporates eight relays that can be connected to controllable
devices. The eight normally open relays are isolated from one another.
The ST-IO also incorporates four digital inputs that can operate in one of two
modes: closure and voltage. The input mode is configured using internal jumpers.
The ST-IO is set to closure mode when shipped.
•
In closure mode, the ST-IO detects switch/relay closures to ground (closed
= logic 1 and open = logic 0). The inputs are connected to 5 VDC via a
1.0K ohm “pull-up” resistor and protection diode.
•
In voltage mode, the ST-IO detects active voltages (voltages > 2.5V = logic
1 and voltages < 1.5V = logic 0). The mode for these inputs is selectable via
internal jumpers.
Refer to “Digital Input Modes” on page 7 for a description to change digital input
mode.

NOTE: In the following description, the PRO2 control system is used.
SIMPL Windows is Crestron’s 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. SIMPL Windows offers drag and drop
functionality in a familiar Windows® environment.
This section describes a sample SIMPL Windows program that includes an ST-IO.
Configuration Manager is where programmers “build” a Crestron control system by
selecting hardware from the Device Library. In Configuration manager, drag the
PRO2 from the Control Systems folder of the Device Library and drop it in the upper
pane of the System Views. The PRO2 with its associated communication ports is
displayed in the System Views upper pane.
PRO2 System Views
The System Views lower pane displays the PRO2 system tree (refer to the following
graphic). This tree can be expanded to display and configure the communication
ports.

Input/Output Module
Crestron ST-IO
ST-IO Symbol in Programming Manager
Programming Manager is where programmers “program” a Crestron control system
by assigning signals to symbols. The following graphic shows the ST-IO symbol in
the SIMPL Windows’ Programming Manager.
ST-IO SIMPL Windows Symbol
The ST-IO provides eight isolated relays for controlling low voltage contact closure
devices such as drapes, screens and lifts. It also provides four local digital outputs.
When a <relay> signal goes high, the corresponding relay closes for as long as the
signal remains high. When the signal goes low, the relay opens. If a signal is
undefined, the relay is open.
The four local <i> outputs can function in either closure or voltage mode. In closure
mode (the default setting), an <i> signal goes high whenever the ST-IO detects the
presence of a switch or relay closure to ground. In voltage mode, the <i> signal goes
high when it detects the presence of an active voltage (voltages > 2.5V = logic 1, and
voltages < 1.5V = logic low).
Device Extenders
To facilitate network functions and diagnostics, SIMPL Windows provides two
device extenders for the ST-IO.
The Poll Manager and The Poll Manager (2 Series Extended) symbols are device
extenders for plug-in control cards and for Cresnet devices and touchpanels. The
Poll Manager takes the device on and offline without need to physically disconnect it
from the network, and reports the current connection status of the device.
The device extenders are available with X-Series and 2-Series control systems; they
are not available with the ST-CP or CN-Series control systems.
12 • Input/Output Module: ST-IO
Operations Guide - DOC. 5675A
Crestron ST-IO
Input/Output Module
To add a device extender, right-click the ST-IO in Program View, point to Insert
Device Extender and select the desired device extender. To program a device
extender, expand the ST-IO in Program View and drag the device extender to Detail
View.
Uploading
Assuming a PC is properly connected to the entire system, Crestron programming
software allows the programmer to upload programs and projects after their
development to the system and network devices. However, there are times when the
files for the program and projects are compiled and not uploaded. Instead, compiled
files may be distributed from programmers to installers, from Crestron to dealers,
etc. In those instances, one has the option to upload via the programming software
or to upload via the Crestron Viewport.
NOTE: The Crestron Viewport is available as a pull-down command from SIMPL
Windows and VT Pro-e (Tools | Viewport) or as a standalone utility. The Viewport
utility performs multiple system tasks, primarily via an RS-232 or TCP/IP
connection between the control system and a PC. It is used to observe system
processes, upload new operating systems and firmware, change system and network
parameters, and communicate with network device consoles and touchpanels, among
many other tasks. Viewport can function as a terminal emulator for generic file
transfer. All of these functions are accessed through the commands and options
inViewport menus. Therefore, for its effectivness as a support and diagnostic tool,
the Crestron Viewport may be preferred over development tools when uploading
programs and projects.
NOTE: Firmware for the ST-IO is not upgradable in the field.
The following section defines how to upload a SIMPL Windows program. Before
attempting to upload, it is necessary to establish communications.
Communication Settings
NOTE: For laptops and other PCs without a built-in RS-232 port, Crestron
recommends the use of PCMCIA cards, rather than USB-to-serial adapters. If a
USB-to-serial adapter must be used, Crestron has tested the following devices with
good results:
Belkin (large model) F5U103
I/O Gear GUC232A
Keyspan USA-19QW
Other models, even from the same manufacturer, may not yield the same results.
The procedure in this section provides details for RS-232 communication between
the PC and the control system. If TCP/IP communication is preferred, consult the
latest version of the Crestron e-Control Reference Guide (Doc. 6052) of the
respective Operations Guide for the control system. These documents are available
from the Downloads | Product Manuals section of the Crestron website
