DIN Rail Control Processor
Crestron DIN-AP2
2-Series Processor
Built upon Crestron’s reliable 2-Series control engine, the DIN-AP2 is
extensively programmable using Crestron’s suite of powerful
development software and vast database of drivers and software modules.
The DIN-AP2 works seamlessly with Crestron’s entire line of lighting
dimmers and shade controls, keypads and touchpanels, thermostats,
wireless gateways, and expansion modules.
DIN Rail Installation
The DIN-AP2 is designed to snap onto a standard DIN rail for
installation in a wall mount enclosure or mounted on a wall panel. Wiring
connections are made using detachable screw terminals positioned along
the top and bottom, clearly accessible from the front for easy installation
and servicing. All setup controls and connections are positioned on the
center front panel. When installed in an enclosure utilizing 45 mm
cutouts, the DIN-AP2’s front panel stays accessible while all other
connections are concealed.
System Integration
The DIN-AP2 provides for the integration of non-Crestron devices and
subsystems through a host of control interfaces. Four isolated relays and
eight Versiport I/O ports are built in to accommodate all kinds of sensors,
contactors, door strikes, and other low-voltage controls. Two
bidirectional RS-232 COM ports and four IR/serial ports allow for the
integration of everything from simple shade controllers to advanced
security systems. Additional interfaces and controllers can be added
easily using Crestron’s DIN Rail series lighting and automation modules.
Cresnet®
Cresnet is the communications backbone for Crestron lighting modules,
wall box dimmers, shade controllers, thermostats, keypads, touchpanels,
and many other devices. This flexible 4-wire bus streamlines the wiring
of a complete Crestron system. The DIN-AP2 includes a pair of Cresnet
master ports (paralleled) capable of supporting approximately 20 typical
devices. Larger systems with more than 20 devices can be handled by
adding the DIN-HUB Cresnet Distribution Hub. Connectivity for
multiple homeruns can be facilitated using one or more DIN-BLOCK
Cresnet Distribution Blocks. Additionally, at least one DIN-PWS50

Earliest Version Software Requirements for the
PC
NOTE: Crestron recommends that you use the latest software to take
advantage of the most recently released features. The latest software is
available from the Crestron website.
NOTE: Crestron software and any files on the website are for authorized
Crestron dealers and Crestron Authorized Independent Programmers
(CAIP) only. New users may be required to register to obtain access to
certain areas of the site (including the FTP site).
Crestron has developed an assortment of Windows®-based software tools
to develop a controlled Cresnet system. You can create a program to
control the DIN-AP2 using the Crestron programming tools such as
Crestron SystemBuilder, D3 Pro™, or SIMPL Windows. Customers
whose focus is on lighting systems may prefer to use the D3 Pro software
since it is designed especially for creating lighting and environmental
system control applications. Customers already familiar with SIMPL
Windows who are including a lighting system as part of an overall

Programming with Crestron SystemBuilder
Crestron SystemBuilder is the easiest method of programming but does
not offer as much flexibility as SIMPL Windows. For additional details,
download SystemBuilder from the Crestron website and examine the
extensive help file.
Programming with D3 Pro
Crestron’s D3 Pro lighting software provides all the tools necessary to
create a complete Crestron lighting system for residential applications.
The lighting system includes the control system logic program,
touchpanel projects and keypad programming, documentation and realtime lighting adjustment capabilities.
As with all Crestron software, D3 Pro provides extensive right-click and
drag-and-drop functionality in addition to convenient keyboard shortcuts
for frequently used functions and commands.
Programming is organized into six system Views of the lighting system,
each providing a moveable toolbox of devices such as interfaces, fixtures
and control modules. You can add a device to your system simply by
selecting it from one of the toolboxes and dragging it to a room. The
available toolboxes differ depending on the View but all Views include a
"General" toolbox that allows you to add areas and rooms at any time.
Programming with SIMPL Windows
NOTE: While SIMPL Windows can be used to program the DIN-AP2,
it is recommended to use Crestron SystemBuilder or D3 Pro for
configuring a system.
SIMPL Windows is Crestron’s premier software for programming
Crestron control systems. It is organized into two separate but equally
important “Managers”.
Configuration
Manager
Configuration Manager is the view where programmers “build” a
Crestron control system by selecting hardware from the Device Library.
• To incorporate the DIN-AP2 into the system, drag the DIN-AP2
from the Control Systems folder of the Device Library and drop it
in the System Views.

Uploading and Upgrading
Crestron recommends using the latest programming software and that
each device contains the latest firmware to take advantage of the most
recently released features. However, before attempting to upload or
upgrade it is necessary to establish communication. Once communication
has been established, files (for example, programs or firmware) can be
transferred to the control system (and/or device). Finally, program checks
can be performed (such as changing the device ID or creating an IP table)
to ensure proper functioning.
While the next section provides an overview for communication, refer to
“Establishing Communications with the Control System” in the Crestron
2-Series Control Systems Reference Guide (Doc. 6256) for connection
details. If communications cannot be established, refer to
“Troubleshooting Communications” in the same guide.

Network Analysis
If Cresnet analysis is required, contact Crestron’s True Blue Support.
Battery Replacement
A Lithium battery is used to power the system clock within the
DIN-AP2. Under normal conditions, it will last for approximately 10
years. In the event that the clock fails, only an authorized technician
should replace it. Refer to caution statement below.
CAUTION: Danger of explosion if battery is incorrectly replaced.
Replace only with the same or equivalent type recommended by the
manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries according to the manufacturer's
instructions.
Check Network Wiring
Use the Right
Wire
Calculate
Power
In order to ensure optimum performance over the full range of your
installation topology, Crestron Certified Wire and only Crestron Certified
Wire may be used. Failure to do so may incur additional charges if
support is required to identify performance deficiencies because of using
improper wire.
CAUTION: Use only Crestron power supplies for Crestron equipment.
Failure to do so could cause equipment damage or void the Crestron
warranty.
CAUTION: Provide sufficient power to the system. Insufficient power
can lead to unpredictable results or damage to the equipment. Please use
the Crestron Power Calculator to help calculate how much power is
needed for the system (www.crestron.com/calculators).

Crestron DIN-AP2
When calculating the length of wire for a particular Cresnet run, the wire
gauge and the Cresnet power usage of each network unit to be connected
must be taken into consideration. Use Crestron Certified Wire only. If
Cresnet units are to be daisy-chained on the run, the Cresnet power usage
of each network unit to be daisy-chained must be added together to
determine the Cresnet power usage of the entire chain. If the unit is
home-run from a Crestron system power supply network port, the
Cresnet power usage of that unit is the Cresnet power usage of the entire
run. The wire gauge and the Cresnet power usage of the run should be
used in the following equation to calculate the cable length value on the
equation’s left side.
Cable Length Equation
40,000
L<
RxP
Where:
L = Length of run (or chain) in feet
2
R = 6 Ohms (Crestron Certified Wire : 0.75 MM (18 AWG))
P = Cresnet power usage of entire run (or chain )
Make sure the cable length value is less than the value calculated on the
right side of the equation. For example, a Cresnet run using 0.75mm2
(18 AWG) Crestron Certified Wire and drawing 20 watts should not have
a length of run more than 101 meters (333 feet). Cresnet-HP cannot be
used.
NOTE: All Crestron certified Cresnet wiring must consist of two
twisted pairs. One twisted pair is the +24V conductor and the GND
conductor and the other twisted pair is the Y conductor and the Z
conductor.
Strip and Tin
Wire
When daisy-chaining Cresnet units, strip the ends of the wires carefully
to avoid nicking the conductors. Twist together the ends of the wires that
share a pin on the network connector and tin the twisted connection.
Apply solder only to the ends of the twisted wires. Avoid tinning too far
up the wires or the end becomes brittle. Insert the tinned connection into
the Cresnet connector and tighten the retaining screw. Repeat the
procedure for the other three conductors.
Add Hubs
Use of a Cresnet Hub/Repeater (DIN-HUB) is advised whenever the
number of Cresnet devices on a network exceeds 20 or when the
combined total length of Cresnet cable exceeds 914 meters (3000 feet).
