Installing Individual Relay Cards
CX RELAY PANELS ARE MOST COMMONLY SHIPPED WITH ALL RELAY CARDS INSTALLED. If the project requires different
types of relays installed in the same panel then the relays are supplied separately and they will require field installation. In this
application, reference the applicable Relay Installation Instruction supplied with the individual Relay Cards on how to install relays.
Caution: ALWAYS remove supply power to the Panel control Transformer prior to making any connections between relay
boards and panel processor board. Failure to do so may result in personnel injury, damage to the panel, and void its
warranty.
Connecting Panel Power
The panel is designed to operate on 120, 208, 240, or 277VAC for input voltage “2” designator or 120, 277, or 347VAC for input
voltage “3” designator. Panel input power is supplied to the multi-tap transformer located in the upper center of the panel as shown
in Figures 1(a) (b).
To connect the panel power, do the following:
1. With the power turned off, route the dedicated panel power supply leads to the transformer and connect them to the
appropriate system voltage specific leads of the transformer. A voltage lead color label is located on or adjacent to the
transformer.
2. Connect the power supply ground lead to the panel chassis grounding lug. A label indicating this ground lug is located
adjacent to the connection location.
Caution: When power is applied to the transformer, the unused transformer leads become electrified. Cap unused
transformer leads with wire nuts to prevent electrical shorting.
Connecting Lighting Loads
To connect the lighting loads, do the following:
1. With the power turned off, route the lighting system line and load leads through the high voltage area of the panel shown in
Figure 1(a) (b).
2. Connect line and load leads for each lighting load to the output terminals of the appropriate relay as delineated in the
project plans and/or Panel Load Schedule. Space is provided for the circuit identification number to be written adjacent to
the terminals on each relay card.
Notice: If relays are not already installed, reference the applicable Relay Installation Instruction supplied with the
individual Relay Cards on how to install relays.
Caution: Prior to making any connections to the relay outputs, verify that none of the loads are shorted. Failure to do so
may result in personnel injury, damage to the panel, and void its warranty.
Notice: If no Panel Load Schedule exists, use the Panel Load Schedule Form supplied in the clear plastic pocket inside
the Panel Door to record the lighting circuit relay assignments while connecting the relays.
Connecting Low Voltage Inputs
To connect the low voltage inputs, do the following:
1. Bring the low voltage wiring for the contact inputs in through the knockouts in the low voltage wiring area where indicated
in Figure 1(a) (b). The CX04 Relay Panel supports 6 inputs, the CX08 Relay Panel supports 12 inputs, the CX16 Relay
Panel supports 20 inputs and the CX24 Relay Panel supports 30 inputs. Inputs are software configurable through
programming to support momentary switches, maintained switches (latching), motion sensors, or photocells. Each
Relay Card includes one low voltage input. By default, low voltage inputs located on an individual relay card are set to
be controlled by a momentary switch station associated to that specific relay. The quantity of Auxiliary Inputs available is
Dependant of the mother board(s) utilized. 2 Auxiliary Inputs for the CX04 Relay Panel, 4 Auxiliary Inputs for the CX08
Relay Panel, 2 Auxiliary Inputs for the CX16 and 3 Auxiliary Inputs for the CX24. These inputs may be connected prior to
programming. Input devices may be connected to any terminal location regardless of final control programming.
2. Connect contact closure input devices to the input terminals using 18 AWG wire.

Edit Panel Names
After-Hours Sweep is an optinal feature that turns off (sweeps off) controlled lighting at a user-selected start time to assure that
zones are eventually OFF. This function allows 1-4 sweeps in succession with an interval of 1-120 minutes. Any relay can be
selected to participate in After-Hours Sweep. Note that after hour sweeps should be reserved for special applications. Properly
programmed shedules will negate the need for sweeps. *If a motion sensor is controlling a Relay or Group selected to participate
in the After-Hours Sweep and the relay is in the ON state indicating that the room is occupied, the sweep will turn off the relays
unless a Blink event occurs.
•

down to Offset. The Offset is the time either before or after the close time at which
to begin the sweep(s). Note that with the F2 Function key, you can select +/offsets (- means before the time and + means after the time shown).
Set Number of Sweeps to 1, 2, 3, or 4. This is the number of times to sweep the
Set After-Hours Sweep
facility.
Set the Interval from 1-120 minutes. This is the time between successive sweeps.
For Relays, select [CHANGE]. Use the F4 function key to select or deselect the relays to participate in the After-Hours
Sweep. Press ENTER when all relays are selected.
When finished scroll down to highlight SAVE. Press ENTER to save your changes.

CX Programming TIP:
The Start Time: <Clock> selection will perform sweeps at the selected time 365 days per year. To execute After-Hours Sweeps on selected Days,
use the Close Time function. Since Open/Close Times can be developed based on all of the CX Panel Schedules functionality, then Close Time can
be any or all days of the week.
Blink Alert
The Blink Alert function allows the user to define a warning period of up to 15 minutes prior to a schedule OFF event. Occupants
are alerted to the impending OFF event by 2 blinks of the lights. The user can issue a manual override command to extend the
schedule OFF event by 1-120 minutes by activating a switch that is mapped to the same relay or group associated to the schedule
OFF event. The manual override must be initiated during the warning period. The user may also manually turn OFF the lights after
the Override was initiated by activating the switch again, thus canceling any pending new blink warn and extended Schedule OFF
event.
Important Functionality NOTES:
The Override Switch and the Schedule OFF event MUST be mapped exactly to the same
Relay or Group for the Extension of the impending OFF to occur.
The switch MUST be activated during the Warning Period
The Switch MUST be set as an ON/OFF Toggle
The Relay must be defined as a Blink Relay in the Relay Function Section. System
Settings>Relay Functions
•
•
•
•
From the Main Menu, select System Settings > Blink Alert. Then press ENTER.
Blink Alert Settings
Set the Warning period from 1-15 minutes. The schedule OFF event occurs at the end of the Warning period.
Set the Override time from 1-120 minutes. This extends the scheduled OFF event by the Override time.
When finished scroll down to highlight SAVE. Press ENTER to save your changes.
If the lights are still ON at the end of the Override time the system will initiate another warning blink and allow another Override to
occur. This Override process will repeat until the ON event of the schedule occurs. The ON event will cancel any impending OFF
initiated by the override switch. If a Timer Switch is used during an Off Sweep/Schedule blink alert, the Timer Switch will be ignored
and the load will turn off according to the Schedule. The Blink Override will only work with a Momentary Toggle Switch Input to
extend the time. Blink Alerts only work with Schedules.
CX Programming TIP:
Additional OFF Only Schedules can be added and mapped to the same relay or group to “Re-Start” the After-hours Override functionality where
users may return after all other occupants have left and an impending OFF has already occurred
If the Override time elapses without the switch being activated the impending schedule OFF will be executed. The override switch
will then behave as a normal ON/OFF toggle.
Power-On Settings
Power ON Settings define the state of each relay at restoration of power following an outage. The relays can be assigned a state
of OFF, Last, or ON. The Last setting returns the relay to the state in which it was in prior to the outage. Relays will be changed to
ON or OFF when power is returned when these settings are chosen. Additionally, for relays set as Last and controlled by ON/OFF
schedules, the CX Panel will check the current time and apply the ON or OFF state based on
the programmed the schedule.

Scenarios
The Scenarios programming feature allows a user to select from a list of pre-established control schemes to more easily assign
schedules, relays and inputs for the desired actions. The use of Scenarios will shorten programming time by only requiring specific
values unique to the Scenario selected. When selecting the Scenario desired, Priorities will automatically be assigned based on
the selected behavior. Dimming is currently not included in the scenarios section.
Notes:
If the control of a Group, (collection of relays) is desired with the scenario, then the Group can be created before starting the
Scenarios process or during the definition of the Relay/Group during the scenarios process. The Scenarios control schemes are
merely prompts, they are not saved in the Scenarios section. If a user wants to “see” what was done or change the programming
established in the scenario, the user must make those changes in the appropriate programming menu section.
An example of these automatic assignments would be a motion sensor required for the scenario. The only selection needed is to
choose which input has the motion sensor connected and what it is controlling, whether a Relay or a Group. During the Scenario
process the input selection for the input (sensor, photocell or switch) would be made automatically.
The use of Scenarios is especially beneficial when selecting control schemes that require the setting of different priorities in order
to create a sequence of operation. The priority selections are made automatically and have been tested for appropriate operation
to assure proper function.
The Scenarios menu is divided into two categories – Indoor and Outdoor. Once a selection of categories is made, a number of
possible scenarios is presented that are most often used for typical project control needs. By highlighting the scenario and pressing
the HELP button a short synopsis will appear on the screen of the selected scenario. By selecting the scenario appropriate to the
application the Scenario process will begin. Note that scenaris are optional. All functionality achieved through the use of scenarios
can be implemented using descrete menu selections.
Following are all the scenarios available at this time and a short synopsis of the functionality available. Following this list are a
couple of programming examples.

allow for inputs to be defined as any type of device. The input types are assignable to be “Switch,” “Motion,” or “Photocell”.
Any Input, regardless of where it is connected in the panel, can be mapped to any relay or group.
The CX Panel system can have a Master Panel of 8, 16, or 24 Relays used individually or connected to a Secondary panel of
8, 16, or 24 Relays. CX 4 Relay Panels are designed as Stand Alone panels only and cannot be connected to make a system.
Select Inputs – Input Designations and Naming Inputs
Panels contain Inputs that are either an integral part of a CXR Relay card or located on the panel motherboard. The Inputs that
are integral to the CXR Relay cards are indicated in the input selection screen as “MIXX” for Master Panels and 4-Relay Stand
Alone panels OR “SIXX” for Secondary Panels. The “XX” indicates the relay number. The relay number is screen printed on
the motherboard adjacent to the relay card connector. The Inputs that are located on the panel motherboard are indicated on
the input selection screen as “MAXX” for Master Panels and 4-Relay Stand Alone panels OR “SAXX” for Secondary Panels.

Input Type and Function
CX Panel Input type is assigned in the programming process. Inputs can be selected to be a Switch, Motion Sensor,
Photocell, Timed On/Off or Timed-On-Only. From the EDIT INPUT Screen, Scroll to Type: Use right/left arrow keys to select
type. Type selections will appear in the line as they are available. Each selection is defined as follows:
<Switch>
• Momentary NO: Lights are toggled when the switch is closed
• Momentary NC: Lights are toggled when the switch is opened
• Maintained NO: Lights are turned ON when the switch is closed or Lights are turned OFF when the switch is
opened
• Maintained NC: Lights are turned ON when the switch is open or Lights are turned OFF when the switch is closed
• Momentary NO/NC Temp Pri: Momentary switch for which priority is not remembered after ON/OFF events
<Motion>
• Motion: Defines the input as connected to a motion sensor. The functionality is for practical purposes the same as
a maintained switch, but for use in understanding the type of control and assigning use in relation to Scenarios,
Priorities and Masking, it is important to select the input type properly.
<Photocell>
• Range: The range of the photocell input. Settings are 0-100%, 0.3-30ft-c, 3-300ft-c, and 30-3000ft-c, 50-750ftc, and 60-6000ft-c, 200-2500ft-c, 1000-7500ft-c. Photocell instructions indicate internal jumper settings for the
LUXSTATLS models.
• ON threshold: Light level below which lights are turned ON
• OFF threshold: Light level above which lights are turned OFF
• OFF delay: Time that OFF threshold must be maintained before lights are turned OFF
• Note that the OFF threshold must be higher than the ON threshold
<Timed-On/Off>
• A Momentary NO switch
• ON time: Defines the time after which the lights will be turned off, up to 999 minutes. The Timed On/Off switch
allows an OFF command if activated after the start of the Timed-On event. Once the relay is OFF the next
activation will start a new Timed-On event.
<Timed-On-Only>
• A Momentary NO switch
• ON time: Defines the time after which the lights will be turned off, up to 999 minutes, The Timed-On-Only switch
does not allow for any Off events. The switch functions as a Timed-On device only. Additional activations during
the timed-on event while the relay or group is ON are ignored. The next Timed-On event can only be initiated when
the relay or group controlled is in the OFF state,

Mapping Input Control and Masking
Any CX Panel input can be mapped to any relay, group or preset. All inputs on a relay are defaulted to control that specific relay
with a Momentary NO switch station. All Auxiliary inputs default to un-configured. If a relay space does not have a relay installed,
the input will not be available to select. If an input is already programmed, it will show a solid box between the input number and its
name. The CX panel user interface will present all possible inputs based on filled relay slots, size of panel and whether there is a
secondary panel present.
Use the following process to program panel Inputs to control a relay or group:
•
•
•
•
•
•
From the Main Menu, select Inputs. Then press the ENTER key.

Inputs – Applying Prioities
Input ON and OFF actions may have Priorities applied to them. Priorities allow for different
inputs to affect the way they interact with each other to provide a desired programming
Scenario to occur. The best way to apply Priorities with the CX system is to use the
Scenarios programming tools. Refer to the “Scenarios section of this manual for detailed
instructions about using Scenarios.

Inputs – Using Photocells and Photocell Settings
CX Panel Photocells are defined as “Open Loop” sensors. Open Loop sensors operate such that the photo sensor views daylight
directly and does not respond to or “see” the electric light that it controls. This means the actual value displayed on the CX Panel
User interface AND the ON and OFF set points programmed for the Inputs ARE NOT THE ACTUAL light levels in the space. They
are relative values used to turn lights ON and OFF at appropriate times to use available daylight.
Additionally, to make using the photocells easier the CX Panel has the values defaulted to 0-100%. The panel can be programmed
to allow settings to be made in foot-candles based on the photocell internal jumper settings if desired. Using the default 0-100%
values can help to disassociate the reading as actual room design foot-candles.
Placement of the photocell has significant ramifications to the ability to get the system set properly. The following are guidelines to
help in developing the optimum energy savings:
•
•
Outdoor Photocell – The LUXSTATLSO should be mounted on a vertical north facing surface on the rooftop with the
lens portion of the head facing up. Care should be given to place the photocell where it has a clear view to the horizon
and is not obstructed by trees, rooftop equipment or other close by buildings.
Indoor Photocells – The LUXSTATLS should be mounted on the ceiling with the lens facing windows. The photocell
should have a clear view and be located at a distance from the window created by a view line at 45° from the lens to
the center of the glass. Care should be taken to be sure that indirect light fixtures do not emit light energy directly into
the photocell. When placing photocells in skylight cells mount the head on the north facing vertical surface with the lens
facing up. Be sure the head is positioned that it does not receive direct sunlight.
Photocell Control with ON/OFF Functionality Only
For fixtures that do not dim and require photocell control the CX Panel can turn the relays on/off based on daylight contribution.
Prior to programming the photocell settings create your Group as instructed in the Group section. This will be the relay or collection

inserted select Import Program, select the file desired and the file will be transferred into the panel and this program will be the
current program in the CX Panel.
Logging Feature – As long as a CX Panel has an SD card installed it is logging this file can be read as a text file. This is an
automatic feature whenever an SD card is present.
Priorities/Masking
When an ON or OFF event occurs, the affected relays are checked to see what input or schedule last put them into their current
state. If this opposite state’s priority is higher than that of the event, it is blocked. The exception is that any input or schedule can
override its own priority.
Priorities and Masking can be set in this section only after an Input or Schedule has been created through the Main Menu
choices. In this section the user can make changes to those selections.
Priorities Programming Guide
Priorities establish a HIERARCHY to the lighting control strategy, allowing for custom applications and some “if (this happens),
then (that can’t happen)” logic to be applied. Priorities can be assigned to any input command that controls a relay such as a
switch, a motion sensor, a photocell or a time schedule. While priorities are extremely powerful and useful, sometimes it can be
difficult to see how multiple priorities will interact and to see the effect these priorities may have on the lighting system control.
As a result, priorities should be used with caution and after some thought. You can contact Technical Support at 1 (888) 6983242 to check your prioritization scheme with Hubbell Building Automation prior to implementation.
General Concepts
There are four levels of priority for any command from an input such as a switch, motion sensor, photocell, or time schedule.
Available priorities, starting with the lowest level and progressing to the highest level are as follows: LOW, NORMAL, HIGH,
and MASTER.
•
•
ON Priority: This field allows for the ON Priority setting input. The priority selections are Low, Normal, High, and Master.
OFF Priority: This field allows for the OFF Priority setting for the input. The priority selections are Low, Normal, High and
Master.
Most control strategies will need no more than three of these priorities. All inputs and schedules are defaulted to the NORMAL
priority and can be changed through the User Interface keypad of the CX panel or via the CX PC-based program. All levels of
priority are available via the CX panel User Interface and the CX PC-based program.
35
Commands that are at equal priority will behave as parallel logic control devices with the last command controlling the relay.
Remember that control devices such as switches, motion sensors and photocells only issue commands when they change state.
They are not continuous monitoring devices.
Priority Rules
The control panel recognizes a hierarchy of priorities as indicated in these general priority rules:
•
A command at the LOW level can only override other commands at the LOW level. All commands at equal priority behave
in the same way.
•
A command at the NORMAL level is able to override any command at the LOW level as well as any other command at
the NORMAL level. While the NORMAL command is in effect, any command from any other input at the LOW level will be
disregarded.
•
If a command is set at the HIGH level it can override any command except for a command at the MASTER level. For
example, you use a Switch command at the MASTER level to turn ON a relay. Then a time scheduled at a HIGH priority
wants to turn OFF that relay. The HIGH priority OFF command from the schedule is at a lower level of priority than the
MASTER priority ON. The relay will not turn OFF until an input command at the MASTER level can turn the relay off.
•
Exceptions to Normal Priority Rules:
•
If a Timed ON is assigned to a switch and the ON command of that input is prioritized, it exerts a ½ step priority up from
priority that is set on that command. For instance, if the ON command of Auxiliary Input 1 is set as NORMAL and has a
60-minute timed ON, when the timer is running, the priority level is actually NORMAL +. This means that an OFF at the
NORMAL level from another switch or input will not be able to override this command. Only the switch that issued the
Timed ON will be able to cancel the Timed ON command before the timer finishes counting down. Other inputs that are a
full priority level higher, such as HIGH, in this case, would be able to cancel the NORMAL + Timed ON.
•
Usually a LOW priority command will not work to override higher priority commands. However, to allow release of the
higher priorities, it is necessary to allow for some exception to the rule. For this reason, if you have a prioritized command
from a switch or other input, it is recommended that you use the opposite command from that same input to release the
priority back to the LOW level. For example, set up the ON of the input to be MASTER and the OFF of the input to be
LOW. When the MASTER is in effect, other switches at the lower priorities will not be able to function. When the MASTER
switch is turned OFF, its effect is to release the MASTER priority. The CX Panel software will then check to see if there is
a previously actuated input that should now control the lighting. This priority release and re-evaluation allows lower level
priority inputs to take control of the lighting.
•
Time schedules set at LOW can override Time Schedules set at the NORMAL or HIGH level if they are controlling the
same relay. This will allow release of time scheduled prioritized commands.
•
If a keypad manual command is affected on a relay and a Timed ON is assigned, this command is the highest priority in
the lighting controller. No other commands will be processed until the timer finishes counting down.
•
Keypad manual commands and manual relay commands from the manual override buttons on the relay boards will force
the relay to the commanded state and to the LOW priority. This will temporarily allow any input regardless of priority to be
able to control that relay again until the next reevaluation occurs. Manual relay override button commands are not tracked
by the CX Controller.
USING PRIORITIES
Priorities, whether they are ON or OFF events should be considered individually. At each programming event the CX panel will
check the ON and OFF priorities for each controlling input or schedule and then issue actions based on the priority status of each
that is mapped to control the same relay or group.
Control inputs are treated equally. Switches, photocells and motion sensors if at the same priority will behave as though they
are logically in series. The control in this situation would change state based on last in command. The exception for Timed ON
switches in indicated above. A motion sensor and switch with equal priorities mapped to a single relay will allow either device to
turn lights ON or OFF at each state change command. Equal priorities are most often used with like devices that control the same
relay or group. Multiple switches controlling the same zone would be set with ON and OFF priorities at equal levels.
When higher or lower priorities are applied to these input devices the commands that are lower are ignored while higher
commands are in effect. The highest priority must be released before other commands of lower priorities can take effect. It is
recommended that when inputs are given higher priority ON commands that the OFF command be set at LOW to clear the control
to all other devices. This recommendation is illustrated in the examples below.
36
Schedules may also be given differing ON and OFF priorities. Schedules that are assigned priorities MUST have both ON and OFF
events. This is required because the higher priority event must be canceled by an opposite event set at priority = LOW in order
to be canceled. A schedule with a higher priority ON event will hold the relays in the ON state until either the priority = LOW OFF
event for the same schedule occurs or a mapped input with a higher priority than the schedule ON occurs.
PRIORITY EXAMPLES
Example 1: The project has an area that requires a Manual-ON-Automatic-OFF control scenario where the switch at the entrance
of the space must be activated before the ceiling mounted motion sensor is allowed to turn lights ON. Once the lights are ON the
switch may be used to turn them OFF or the sensor will turn them OFF automatically once vacancy is detected and timeout period
has passed. Once lights are turned OFF the area is reset for the next ON event to be manual with the switch again.
Example 1 Programming Steps:
1. Set the wall switch priority as ON command = HIGH, OFF command = LOW.
2. Set the motion sensor priority as ON command = NORMAL (Default) OFF command = LOW.
How it works:
When an occupant enters the motion sensor will see them and initiate and ON command. The panel will check to see if there
are any other devices controlling the relay with a higher level priority ON command. In the case since the wall switch has an ON
command at priority HIGH and the sensor with priority ON command at Normal, the panel will ignore the sensor ON command until
the switch initiates its ON command. In order to turn the lights ON the occupant will first need to initiate an ON command from the
switch.
When the occupant leaves the room the switch and the sensor have equal priority OFF command at LOW. This means that either
the switch or the sensor can turn the lights OFF at any time. Once the OFF event has been executed then the system returns to the
original manual ON state requiring the higher priority ON switch to be activated to turn lights ON.
Example 2: The project has time schedules set up during the day with a 7:00AM ON and an 8:00PM OFF schedule for Monday
through Friday. They do not want the wall switches to work at all during the day but would like them to work after the 8:00PM OFF
time.
Example 2 Programming Steps:
3. Set the wall switch priority as ON command = NORMAL (Default), OFF command = NORMAL (Default).
4. Set the 7:00AM ON schedule to be at the HIGH level. Set the 8:00PM OFF schedule to be at the LOW priority.
How it works:
At 7:00AM the time schedule will turn the lights on, with a priority level of HIGH. The lower priority wall switch will not be able to
work.
At 8:00PM the time schedule will turn the lights off, with a priority of LOW, releasing control of the relay to other inputs. The wall
switch will now work until the next 7:00AM priority level HIGH on Schedule activates.
ALTERNATE Method Using MASKING:
Example 2 – Alternate – Programming Steps:
1. Set the wall switch masking for the OFF command for a start time of 7:00AM and end at 8:00PM
2. Set the wall switch priority as ON command = NORMAL (Default), OFF command = NORMAL (Default).
3. Set the 7:00AM ON schedule to be at the NORMAL (Default) level. Set the 8:00PM OFF schedule to be at the NORMAL
(Default) priority.
How it works:
At 7:00AM the time schedule will turn the lights on, with a priority level of NORMAL.
Starting at 7:00AM the switch OFF commands will be ignored since they are masked. The wall switch will not be able to turn
lights OFF until the mask period ends at 8:00PM. During the mask period ON commands can still be sent, but since the relays
are already ON the state will not change. The purpose of leaving the ON un-masked is so that if for any reason relays are manual
turned OFF they can always be turned back ON.
37
At 8:00PM the time schedule will turn the lights off, with a priority of LOW, releasing control of the relay to other inputs. The wall
switch will now perform both ON and OFF commands until the next masking period starts at 7:00AM.
Example 3: The project has an indoor photocell that turns ON or OFF interior lights nearest the windows as needed using ON and
OFF light level set points. The desired programming is to turn OFF lighting entirely at 8:00PM and enable the photocell to run the
lighting starting at 7:00AM.
Example 3 Programming Steps:
1. Set up the photocell with the ON command at a priority = NORMAL (Default) ON and the OFF command at a priority =
NORMAL OFF.
2. Set up the Time Schedule at 8:00PM to issue a priority = HIGH OFF.
3. Set up a Time Schedule at 7:00AM to issue a priority = LOW ON.
How it works:
The 8:00PM priority = HIGH OFF schedule goes through. All lights that are currently ON from photocell priority = NORMAL ON will
turn OFF because the schedule OFF is a higher priority. Any additional ON or OFF commands from the photocell will be ignored
until the 7:00AM priority=LOW ON command goes through.
The time schedule priority = LOW ON goes through at 07:00. This command releases the higher priority ON command and gives
control back to the photocell. In this case, lights that are in areas that the photocell is in the ON state will turn on or if the photocell
is in the OFF state they will not turn ON. This occurs because both the OFF and ON state of the photocell are higher priorities
than the ON command of the schedule.
Example 4: The project has a fire system that gives the lighting system a dry contact closure when the alarm goes on. This
closure is connected to one of the auxiliary inputs on the CX Panel. In an alarm event, all of the emergency lighting is to turn on
and remain on regardless of wall switch state or time schedules when an alarm happens. When the alarm system is turned off by
the fire department the all lighting is to resume its normal scheduled state.
Example 4 Programming Steps
1. Set the fire alarm input ON command as priority = MASTER ON.
2. Set the fire alarm input OFF command as priority = LOW.
3. Set the time schedules and other inputs to be priority = NORMAL level.
How it works:
Normal commands go through to control relays in a NORMAL level. Because commands are all at the NORMAL level, they can
override each other.
For the purposes of this example, we will say that the last command to this relay was an ON command from a wall switch.
When the fire alarm input sends an ON command, the designated lighting will go ON, at a MASTER priority level.
When the fire alarm input is turned OFF it will issue a priority = LOW OFF command. The CX Panel will re-evaluate and give
control of the relays to the last command at the NORMAL level, in this case the wall switch.
Masking
Masking can be applied to Inputs and Outputs. The purpose of masking is to block actions or events for selected periods of time.
When selecting and programming Masking, it is essentially like programming a schedule, (see Schedules), to NOT function.

Access Control
The System Status function allows for manual operation and testing of Relays, Groups, Schedules, Inputs and outputs.
Access Control settings allow a master user to create up to 10 Usernames and Passwords for the panel’s access. To create a new
Access Control user, do the following:
From the Main Menu, use the navigation arrows to select Access Control. From the keypad, press ENTER.
Scroll to and select a User. From the keypad, press ENTER.
Under Name: use the keypad to type a name.
Use the down arrow key to select Level: then use the left and right arrow keys to highlight <Master> <Limited> or ViewOnly>.
5. After making your selection, press the down arrow key to select Password: and use the keypad to type a 4-digit password.
Note: Keep the Password in an accessible place. Contact Tech Support if the Password has been lost or misplaced.
6. Press the down arrow key to highlight [Save]. From the keypad, press Enter to save your changes.
7. The first user must always have a Master user level. If the first user is not defined, Access Control will not be used by the
CX Controller. A password of 0000 can be entered by simply pressing ENTER at the CX Controller main screen. This can be
useful when the 0000 user is set to a View-Only user level.

PART 3 - CX Lighting Control Panels Troubleshooting Guide
Troubleshooting Guide
The troubleshooting guide provides information about issues that can arise due to physical installation, wiring connections and
programming functionality. Every CX Panel is fully factory tested for all functionality prior to shipment and should be in proper
working order once mounted and connected. The issues listed below primarily occur due to wiring errors and/or incorrect
programming. HBA has attempted to make all connection requirements and programming steps clear and understandable, but
understands that issues can arise in the field. Our hope is that we have details that will allow for corrections to be made using this
guide in most cases.
Should additional assistance be required HBA Technical Services can be called at 1 (800) 888-8006. Hours are M-F 8:00AM to
5:00PM CDT.
“Hot Swapping”
Hot Swapping is when an individual removes components of the CX Panel with the Main Power On. Items referred to as a CX component: CX
Motherboard(s), CX Dimming Card, CX Master/Secondary Card, CX Relays, CX Controller or the Ribbon Cable connecting the Controller to the
CX Motherboard. If this is Hot Swapping is done the Panel will be damaged and all CX components will need to be replaced.
Line Voltage Power Connections
If the relay appears to stay on, (OFF) or closed, (ON),
1. Verify the Green indicator LED on the Relay Card is on if the relay should be closed and off if the relay should be open.
2. Check the continuity of the relay to verify the Relay is open or closed.
3. Check the Status of the Relay through the Controller Status function.
• The Relay may not be seen by the controller. Indicating a damaged relay or a loss of communication with the
motherboard.
• Power down and remove a known good relay and replace the relay that is questioned.
• If the known good relay is still not “seen” by the Controller it may be the Motherboard.
• If the known good relay functions correctly, then the questioned relay may need to be replaced.
Low Voltage Control Inputs
An input is not seen when programming.
1. If the Input is on a Relay card, verify the relay can be seen via the manual override section or the status section. If the Relay
is not seen either, the Relay may be suspect.
• Power down and remove a known good relay and replace the relay that is questioned.
• If the known good relay and input are still not “seen” by the Controller it may be the Motherboard.
• If the known good relay and input functions correctly, then the questioned relay/input may need to be replaced.
• An input device has been installed and it is not turning on or off
2. At the CX Panel input remove the low voltage wires. Use a 2 inch or jumper wire and jumper between 24V and the Control
terminal. This should simulate an input function, if the action does not occur, test via option 1 in Low Voltage Control Inputs.
3. Remove the Switch station from its location and walk it to the CX Panel input and connect the switch, occupancy sensor or
photocell to the input. Does it work?
• If not then it may be the device and the device may need to be replaced.
• If it does work, it may be the low voltage wire. Check the wires.
4. To check the wires remove the switch and short the 24V wire to the Control wire, does anything happen?
• If nothing happens the wire may need to be replaced.
• If it works then check the connections to the low voltage device and try again.
CX Dimming Card
“The Dimming card is not working.”
1. Verify the Card/Dimming channels are seen in the Controller.
2. Verify the dipswitches are set correctly, see Dimming Card instructions.
40
CX Master/Secondary Configurations
“I’m unable to see Secondary Panel.”
1. With the Power removed to both panels, remove the CX Controller form the Master Panel and connect it to the Secondary
Panel. Remove the Interface card and power up the Secondary Panel.
• The Secondary Panel is still not seen. Check the dipswitch configurations on the CX Panel.
•
If these are correct, with the power removed disconnect all relays and see if the Motherboards can be seen.
•
If not then the Motherboards needs to be replaced.
• If so then reinstall all the relays one at a time. Power cycling between re-installation and verifying after each reinstall
that they are seen.
• If a relay is reinstalled and not seen, verify the relay by following #3 under Line Voltage Power Connections.
2. Verify the installation of Both Interface Cards
• Both Cards look similar however the Master Card has the text Master Card on the card and the Secondary Card has the
text Secondary Card on it.
3. Test the CAT5 Cable being used to insure a non damaged cable.
4. Verify the dipswitches on both panels represent the correct configuration per Panel function.
