Digital I/O
(Port 17):
8-channel binary I/O port for contact closure with each input being capable
of voltage sensing. Input format is software selectable with interactive
power sensing for IR ports.
Note: The I/Os are not dry closure; they are electronic switches that float at
5V when Off. Therefore, they should not be expected to work in situations
that require true dry contact (or dry closure). The I/Os do work with AMX
PC1, PC2, UPC20 and UPC20+.
IR/Serial
(Ports 9 - 16):
8 IR/Serial control ports support high-frequency carriers of up to 1.142 MHz
with each output being capable of two electrical formats: IR or Serial.
• 8 IR/Serial data signals can be generated simultaneously.
• IR ports support data mode (at limited baud rates and wiring distances).
Program Port:
RS-232 DB9 connector (male) can be connected to a DB9 port on a PC.
This connector can be used with serial and NetLinx programming commands, as well as other DB9 capable devices, to both upload/download
information from the NetLinx Studio program.

Connections and Wiring
Inserting NetLinx Cards into the NetLinx Control Card Slots
NetLinx Cards can be installed into the front card slots. The cards mount horizontally through
the card slot openings on the front panel of the enclosure. To install a NetLinx Card:
1.
Discharge the static electricity from your body by touching a grounded metal object
and unplug all the connectors from the unit.
Remove the three screws by turning them in a counter-clockwise direction and remove
the front faceplate.
Align the edges of the card with the internal guide slots and gently slide it in all the way
until the rear edge of the card snap into place.
Re-secure the faceplate by inserting the three screws by turning them in a clockwise
direction and securing the front faceplate to the Controller.
Re-apply power and other connections as necessary.

The 8-position CardFrame Number DIP switch on the rear panel sets the starting address
(the device number in the D:P:S specification) for the Control Cards installed in the controller.
The Control Card address range is 1 - 3064.
The factory default CardFrame DIP switch value = 0 (All CardFrame DIP switches in the OFF
position). The formula for setting the starting address is:
(DIP switch value) + Card slot Number (1 - 4) = Card Address
For example:
A DIP switch setting of 00010101:
(0 + 0 + 0 + 96 + 0 + 384 + 1536) + SLOT # (ex:1) = 2017.
A card in slot number 1 = device address 2017.

Cycle power to the unit for approximately 5 seconds. This allows the unit to read the new
device number settings.
Wiring a Power Connection
Use a 12 VDC-compliant power supply to provide power to the Controller via the rear 2-pin
3.5 mm mini-Phoenix connector. Use the power requirements information listed in the
Specifications table to determine the power draw.
The incoming PWR and GND cable from the PSN power supply must be connected to their
corresponding locations within the PWR connector.
• This unit should only have one source of incoming power.
• Using more than one source of power to the Controller can result in damage to the
internal components and a possible burn out.
• Apply power to the unit only after installation is complete.
RS-232/422/485 Wiring Connector Information
FIG. 2 shows the pinout and wiring specification information for the rear RS-232/RS-422/RS485 (DB9) Device Ports. These ports support most standard serial mouse control devices
and RS-232 communication protocols for PC data transmission.

connect the wire in the cable to any connection that will not be used by the DB9 serial port.
Only use wiring that connects the needed pins.

terminated correctly.
Preparing the NI-4100 for Serial Communication
To establish serial communication with the Controller via the PROGRAM (DB9) port:
1.
Use a Serial DB9 cable (i.e. CC-COM Programming Port Cable - not included) to
connect the Controller’s Program port to a DB9 port on a PC.
2.
Launch NetLinx Studio 2.x (default location is Start > Programs > AMX Control Disc
> NetLinx Studio 2 > NetLinx Studio 2).
3.
Select Settings > Master Communication Settings, from the menu bar, to open the
Master Communication Settings dialog box.
4.
Click the Communications Settings button to open the Communications Settings
dialog.
5.
Click the NetLinx Master radio button (from the Platform Selection section) to indicate
you are working with a NetLinx Master.
6.
Click the Serial radio button (from the Transport Connection Option section) to indicate
you are connecting to the Master via a COM port.
7.
Click the Edit Settings button (on the Communications Settings dialog) to open the
Serial Settings dialog and set the COM port parameters (used to communicate to the
NetLinx Master).
8.
Click OK to close all dialogs and return to the main application.
9.
Right-click the Online Tree tab entry and select Refresh System: the Controller
should appear in the Device Tree. If not, verify that the Serial cable is connected
properly, and that the Baud Rate settings on the Controller (set via the Program Port
DIP Switch) match the settings in NetLinx Studio.
Once Serial communication has been established, use NetLinx Studio to configure the
Controller for Ethernet Communication, as described below.
Configuring the NI-4100 for Ethernet Communication
Before continuing, complete the COM port steps above.
1.
Use an Ethernet cable to connect the Controller to the LAN to which the PC running
NetLinx Studio is connected.
Note: The NI-x100 Controllers feature an Auto MDI/MDI-X Ethernet port. This provides
the option of using either a standard (straight through), or a crossover Ethernet cable
to communicate with a PC - both cable types will work.
2.
Select Diagnostics > Network Address from the menu bar and enter the System,
Device (0 for a Master), and Host Name information.
3.
To configure the Address:
• Use a DHCP Address by selecting the Use DHCP radio button, then click the GET IP
button (to obtain a DHCP Address from the DHCP Server), click the SET IP Information button (to retain the new address), and then finish the process by clicking the
Reboot Master > OK buttons.
• Use a Static IP Address by selecting the Specify IP Address radio button, enter the IP
parameters into the available fields, then click the SET IP Information button (to retain
the pre-reserved IP Address to the Master), and then click the Reboot Master > OK
buttons to finish the process.
4.
Repeat steps 1 - 5 from the previous section, but rather than selecting the Serial
option, choose TCP/IP and edit the settings to match the IP Address you are using
(Static or IP).
5.
Click on the Authentication Required radio box (if the Master is secured) and press
the User Name and Password button to enter a valid username and password being
used by the secured Master.
6.
Click the OK to close all dialogs and return to the main application.
Onboard WebConsole
Use a standard CAT5 Ethernet cable to provide communication between the Integrated
Controller and external NetLinx devices.
NetLinx Masters have a built-in WebConsole that allows you to make various configuration
settings via a web browser on any PC that has access to the Master.
The WebConsole consists of a series of web pages that are collectively called the "Master
Configuration Manager". Refer to the NI Series NetLinx Integrated Controllers WebConsole
& Programming Guide for details on the WebConsole.
Baud Rate Settings (Program Port DIP Switch)
Accessing the WebConsole
The Program Port DIP switch is located on the rear of the device. Use this DIP switch to set
the baud rate for the Program Port, according to the settings shown in the following table.
Make sure the baud rate you set matches the baud rate on your PC's NetLinx COM Settings
before programming the unit.
From any PC that has access to the LAN that the target Master resides on:
1.
Open a web browser and type the IP Address of the target Master in the Address Bar.
2.
Press Enter to access WebConsole for that Master. The initial view is the WebControl
page.
