Active Voltage Control (AVC)
Active Voltage Control maintains a constant float voltage under varying load current by
monitoring the bus voltage and adjusting the rectifier output voltage to compensate for any
voltage drop. This prevents undercharging the batteries during high load demand.
► To enable Active Voltage Control
Use the SC200 keypad to go to: Control Processes > Voltage Control > AVC.
Or, in DCTools/Web go to: Control Processes > Voltage Control > Active Voltage Control.


Battery Current Limit (BCL)
Battery Current Limit automatically limits the battery recharge current to:
Prevent excessive battery charge current in under-loaded systems
Minimize gas release in VRLA batteries
Reduce the load on a standby generator.
Two current limit values can be set (both are a percentage of the C10 rating of the battery):
Battery Current Limit (Normal Limit): BCL value for use when utility ac is available.
Engine Run Limit (optional):

BCL value for use when ac is supplied by a standby
generator. This reduces the load on the generator
and allows a smaller generator to be used.
Engine Run Limit applies when the SC200 determines that an ac standby generator is running. If
an Engine Run Digital Input is available (see below), then the SC200 uses this to determine if the
generator is running. If an Engine Run Digital Input is not available then the SC200 uses other
values to determine if the generator is running.
► To enable BCL
Use the SC200 keypad to go to: Control Processes > Battery Current Limit.
Or, in DCTools/Web go to: Control Processes > Battery Current Limit.

Battery Test
Battery Test is a preventative maintenance tool that monitors the discharge capabilities to
ensure that the condition of the battery has not deteriorated over time.
The SC200 temporarily reduces the output voltage of the rectifiers to just below the bus voltage
for a set duration. The battery then supplies power to the load. A battery test passes if the
battery voltage remains above a predetermined level for the duration of the test.
Battery Tests can be scheduled to occur at regular intervals, and/or can be started/stopped
manually, and/or can be started by an external relay contact or switch.

Battery Test does NOT function during a Fast Charge or Equalize, or during the lock-out period
after an ac supply failure.

If a Digital Input has the function "Start Battery Test" then a Battery Test will start when the
Digital Input becomes active.
► To enable Battery Test (or to start or stop a test manually)

Description
Where to find:
Voltage Threshold
If the bus voltage drops below this value during
an ac supply failure, then Fast Charge starts when
the ac supply is restored. Fast charge can also be
started based on the Start Ah Threshold.
Start Ah Threshold
If Ah Discharged exceeds this value during an ac
supply failure, then Fast Charge starts when the
ac supply is restored. The threshold is given as a
percentage of installed C10 battery capacity. Fast
charge can also be started based on the Voltage
Threshold.
Recharge
Percentage (%)
The ratio of ampere-hours recharged to the
ampere-hours discharged. Fast Charge stops
either when the Ah recharged equals the Ah
discharged x Recharge Percentage, or after
Maximum Duration. Recharge Percentage only
applies if Stop Ah Threshold is set to zero.
Maximum
Duration
Set Maximum Duration so that the battery will
fully charge but not overcharge.
Stop Ah Threshold
This value is set so that Fast Charge will stop
before the battery is fully charged. This is used
when Fast Charge is used to control a generator
and the generator should be stopped before the
battery is fully charged (thereby saving fuel).
Stop Ah Threshold is the discharge percentage at
which the charging stops, e.g. 10% means that
Fast Charge will stop when the battery is 90%
charged. If Fast Charge is not used to control a
generator then this value should be set to zero.

Fast Charge may also be used to trigger the Generator Control Output. See details on page 65.

To avoid excessive fuel use or shortened battery life, it is important that the settings are correct in
a hybrid generator/battery power system (cyclic charge/discharge).
Voltage Threshold should be set so that when a fully charged battery is discharged, the
Start Ah Threshold is reached before the Voltage Threshold.
Maximum Duration should be set so that in a typical recharge, Ah Discharged reaches
zero before Maximum Duration is reached.
Master Configuration files will typically meet these requirements, but the values must
be checked against battery discharge/recharge curves in the cyclic application.


So that an incorrect Ah Discharged value does not affect cyclic battery charging in a hybrid
generator/battery power system, an incorrect Ah Discharged value will be corrected after one
discharge/recharge cycle:
Ah Discharged is set to zero when the recharge reaches Maximum Duration (and the
battery is assumed to be fully charged).
Ah Discharged is set to the Start Ah Threshold when the battery discharges down to the
Voltage Threshold.
Temperature Compensation
As the ambient temperature of a battery drops (or rises) the voltage required to maintain full
charge increases (or decreases). Temperature Compensation automatically varies the float
voltage to cancel the effects of changing temperature.
Enable Temperature Compensation for optimum battery life and battery capacity over a wider
temperature range.

System Operation
Load Based Rectifier Shutdown

Load Based Rectifier Shutdown is not available with APR48-3G (prior to PR5), EPR48-3G,
APR24-3G and CR48-3G rectifiers.
If Load Based Rectifier Shutdown (LBRS) is enabled by setting Shutdown to Automatic then the
SC200 automatically shuts down rectifiers when the total load current is significantly less than
the total rectifier capacity.
This raises the average load on the remaining rectifiers which will then operate at a higher
efficiency. This results in a decrease in system power consumption.
The SC200 shuts down APR48-3G PR5 rectifiers before the more efficient APR48-ES rectifiers.
The run time of all rectifiers is recorded and the usage within each group of rectifiers (APR483G PR5s and APR48-ESs) is balanced to ensure even aging.
The SC200 will progressively restart rectifiers (starting with any shut down APR48-ES rectifiers)
if the load increases.


Rectifiers shut down by LBRS will have the yellow LED on.

The SC200 will automatically restart all rectifiers if ac supply has failed, or more than one rectifier
has failed, or Battery Test / Equalize / Fast Charge are active, or the bus voltage is below the Low
Load threshold.
At least two rectifiers will always be on to maintain N+1 rectifier redundancy. Therefore, LBRS
has no effect in dc power systems with only one or two rectifiers.
► To enable Load Based Rectifier Shutdown
Use the SC200 keypad to go to: Rectifiers > Settings (tab) > set Rectifier Shutdown to
Automatic.
Or, in DCTools/Web go to: Rectifiers > set Shutdown to Automatic.

Ensure that Rectifier Start Up Delay is less than 30 seconds. See information on page 33. LBRS
will not function correctly if the start up delay is more than 30 seconds.

SC200 Handbook
Low Voltage Disconnect (LVD)
Low Voltage Disconnects may be connected either as load disconnect or battery disconnect
depending on the dc power system model. They have two purposes:
to protect a VRLA battery from deep discharge and premature failure, and/or
to reduce the load on a battery under discharge so that high priority equipment operates
for a longer time after an ac supply failure.
The SC200 has 16 independent LVD control channels (LVD 1 to LVD 16). Each channel can
control one or more of up to 16 contactors, with coil voltages from 12V to 48V nominal.

There are two contactor connectors on an IOBGP input/output board. Additional contactors are
controlled by additional IOBGP-01 input/output boards. If required, refer to the dc power system
Installation and Operation Guide for details on how to connect additional IOBGP-01 input/output
boards to the SC200.
LVD Disconnect Modes
The LVD control channels can have any combination of the following modes of operation:
1
Voltage Based Disconnect: The LVD control channel will disconnect its contactor(s) based
on the bus voltage.
2
AC Timer Based Disconnect: The LVD control channel will disconnect its contactor(s) after
a specified period of ac supply failure.
3
Smart Alarm Disconnect: The LVD control channel will disconnect its contactor(s)
according to the state of a specified Smart Alarm. See Smart Alarm Disconnect on page 42.
If Chained to Previous is enabled, the LVD control channel will only disconnect its contactor(s) if
one of its disconnect conditions is True, and the preceding control channel has been
disconnected for the Recognition Time.

Chained to Previous does not apply to LVD 1.
LVD Default and Custom Configuration
If factory-fitted in the dc power system, the LVD contactors will be characterized and the LVD
control channels will have default configuration settings for Voltage Based Disconnect. Custom
configuration will only be necessary if:
contactors are connected to the dc power system on site (see LVD Characterization on page
37 and LVD Setup on page 39)
different disconnect conditions are required (see LVD Configuration on page 41).
Typical LVD Arrangements
The simplest use of an LVD is a single battery disconnect contactor.
The following diagram shows a typical arrangement of two LVDs. This arrangement allows
lower priority loads to be disconnected first (contactor controlled by control channel LVD 1),
either at a specified battery voltage or a specified time interval after an ac supply failure. This
then prolongs battery power for the highest priority loads (contactor controlled by control
channel LVD 2). The battery will be disconnected when the battery voltage reaches its
minimum preset voltage.

Eaton dc power system will be described in the Installation and Operation Guide.
Characterization
If auxiliary contacts are fitted to the LVD contactor(s)*, then the LVD Characterization process
determines the optimum operating voltages to suit the contactor(s) coil voltage. These values
are stored in the SC200 and on the I/O board.
An LVD Characterization Error alarm will be activated if the SC200 detects that the
characterization values stored in the SC200 and on the I/O board are different. This happens
when:
The SC200 is replaced.
The I/O Board is replaced.
Both the SC200 and the I/O Board are replaced.
LVD Characterization Error alarms can only be cleared from the SC200 front panel, not using
DCTools/Web.
To clear the alarm when the SC200 is replaced, on the SC200 go to Alarms, select the LVD
Character. Err. active alarm and press Details, select Clear and press Enter, select Characterize
with IOB Values and press Save.
To clear the alarm when the I/O Board is replaced, on the SC200 go to Alarms, select the
LVD Character. Err. active alarm and press Details, select Clear and press Enter, select
Characterize with SC Values and press Save.
To clear the alarm when both the SC200 and the I/O Board are replaced, go to Alarms,
select the LVD Character. Err. active alarm and press Details, select Clear and press Enter,
select Characterize Contactor and press Start.

When a contactor is re-characterized it will disconnect and re-connect several times. Refer to
Maintenance in the dc power system Installation and Operation Guide for full instructions.

System Operation
The following system alarms have particular configuration settings:
System Overload alarm. See details on page 47.
Battery Mid-point monitoring. See details on page 57.
Alarm Inhibiting
To prevent a single series of faults triggering multiple alarms, an alarm is inhibited by another
active alarm if the conditions that trigger the inhibiting alarm include the conditions that trigger
the inhibited alarm. However, the inhibiting alarm only inhibits if it is set to a level of severity
that is equal to or higher than the alarm being inhibited.
For example, Partial AC Fail is inhibited if AC Fail is active and AC Fail is set to a level of severity
that is equal to or higher than Partial AC Fail.
Alarm Descriptions on page 109 lists the inhibiting alarms that can inhibit each alarm.
System Overload Alarm
The System Overload alarm activates if the total system load exceeds a percentage of the
installed rectifier capacity for a specified period (or if the total system load exceeds a percentage
of the installed rectifier capacity minus the capacity of the largest rectifier if System Overload
Type is set to Redundancy). This indicates that additional rectifiers need to be installed. This is
useful at sites where there is ongoing installation of additional load equipment.
► To enable System Overload
In DCTools/Web go to: Alarms > Alarm States. Enable and configure System Overload alarm.
See System Alarm Configuration on page 46.
Go to: Alarms > Alarm Configuration. Configure the System Overload alarm parameters. See
details on page 48.

System Overload
Threshold
The System Overload alarm activates if the load
is above this threshold continuously for the
System Overload Recognition Period. Measured as a
percentage of total rectifier capacity.
System Overload
Recognition Period
The System Overload alarm activates if the load
is above the threshold continuously for this time.
It is normally set to several hours so that the
alarm does not operate during a normal battery
recharge.
System Overload
Type
The System Overload alarm can be based on
either Total Capacity or Redundancy.
If the system overload type is based on Total
Capacity then the alarm will trigger when the
load is above the System Overload Threshold for
the System Overload Recognition Period.
DCTools/Web: Alarms >
Alarm Configuration
If the system overload type is Redundancy then
the alarm will trigger when the load is above the
total current capacity of the system minus the
current capacity of the largest rectifier, for the
System Overload Recognition Period.

System Operation
Smart Alarms
Smart Alarms are a software simulation of logic gates to allow the logical combination of other
alarms, time schedules and/or system values. Up to 32 Smart Alarms can be configured.
A single Smart Alarm is the equivalent of a multi-input AND, OR or XOR logic gate. More
complex logic arrangements are created by using one Smart Alarm as an input into another. For
example:
Two input AND gate:
SAx = Sa AND Sb
Three input OR gate:
SAy = Sa OR Sb OR Sc
Multi-gate logic:
SAz = SAx OR NOT Sd

One input is Smart Alarm SAx (output
from another gate). The other input is
negated. This is available with Alarm
Sources only.
Key:
SAx, SAy, SAz are Smart Alarms (entered in the Smart Alarms table).
Sa, Sb, Sc, Sd are the Sources (entered in the Alarm Sources, Schedule Sources or System Value
Sources tables).
Smart Alarms also have optional activation and deactivation delays. When activated they can
cause alarm indications (unless Severity is set to Control) and can activate one or two digital
outputs (in the same way as other alarms).

For more information and application examples contact your Eaton DC product supplier and
request Eaton Application Note AN0106, SC200 Version 3 Advanced Alarm Features.

System Operation
Battery Mid-point Monitoring (MPM)
Battery Mid-point Monitoring provides a cost-effective method for the early detection of
internal battery faults. The voltages of the two halves of a battery string are measured and the
system controller generates an alarm signal if a voltage imbalance is detected.
A voltage imbalance is an indication that one or more cells has an internal fault. Further
investigation can then isolate the faulty cell(s) and action can be taken to correct the problem
and prevent a total battery failure.
To connect Battery Mid-point Monitoring see details in the dc power system Installation and
Operation Guide. If a String Fail alarm is generated see Troubleshooting on page 100.
To ensure reliable operation Mid-point Monitoring operates only when the battery is in float
charge and after a configurable lockout period since the last battery discharge, Fast Charge,
Equalize or Battery Test.
► To enable Battery Mid-point Monitoring (MPM)


There are four mid-point monitoring analog inputs on an IOBGP input/output board (for four
battery strings). Up to 20 additional battery strings can be monitored if additional IOBGP
input/output boards are connected. Refer to the dc power system Installation and Operation
Guide for details on how to connect additional IOBGP input/output boards to the SC200.

* A dynamic alarm threshold is used to give the best possible battery fault detection:
1
After the end of a discharge, Fast Charge or Equalize cycle, MPM does not start until the
end of the MPM Lockout Period, to ensure the system is in float charge.
2
At this point, the battery cell voltages are expected to be widely spread, so the alarm
threshold is set high (MPM Start Threshold).
3
The alarm threshold is then progressively reduced over the MPM Convergence Period.
4
After the end of the MPM Convergence Period, cell imbalance is assumed to be stable, and a
fixed threshold is used (MPM Stable Threshold).
Battery Time Remaining
The SC200 obtains characterization data from every full battery discharge, to a specified end
voltage.
During a battery discharge, the SC200 uses this characterization data to calculate an estimated
time until the battery will reach the specified end voltage.

If a battery disconnect LVD is fitted then the end voltage will usually be the voltage at which the
LVD disconnects the battery.

Battery Time Remaining is designed for a constant power load. The accuracy of the time
remaining calculation will be reduced if the dc power system is connected to a predominantly
resistive (constant current) load.

The time remaining calculation will not be correct if a non-essential load is disconnected during
the battery discharge.

Configuration
It will take at least 10 hours to characterize a battery.

When a battery is characterized it is discharged. The bus voltage will gradually
reduce to the battery end voltage. Ensure that this will not affect the operation of
any equipment connected to the dc power system.
Use the following procedure to configure Battery Time Remaining for the first time, or if a
previously characterized battery is changed.

Battery Characterization is not necessary if a previously saved battery characterization data file is
available. Refer to Characterization Data Management on page 63. Only use characterization data
for an identical type and size of battery.
► To configure Battery Time Remaining
1 Check that all battery strings are connected and all LVD contactors (if any) are connected.

2
Check that all battery strings are fully charged.

When a battery is fully charged, the Battery Charge State will be Float and Ah Discharged
will be zero. See Batteries on page 56.
3
Check that all battery parameters are set to the correct values. See Batteries Configuration
on page 56.
4
Check that the load current is at least 2% of the C10 capacity of the batteries (Battery
Capacity) and 150% of the Battery State Threshold. See Batteries Configuration on page 56.

5
6
If the load current is less than 10% of the C10 capacity of the batteries, then Battery
Characterization will take longer than 10 hours.
Either, in DCTools/Web go to Batteries > Battery Time Remaining, or use the SC200 keypad
to go to Battery. Set End Voltage to the voltage per cell when the battery is regarded as fully
discharged.

60
During a battery characterization, LVD contactor disconnection is inhibited. If any LVD
contactor is configured to connect during a battery discharge then set it to Manual Connect to
prevent operation during the battery characterization.
In general set the end voltage to the same value as for the LVD Disconnect Voltage (see LVD
Configuration on page 41). End Voltage must be at least 0.02V/Cell above the Minimum
System Voltage (per cell). The Minimum System Voltage is viewable in DCTools/Web at
Control Processes. It is not configurable.

Reverse Battery Detection
If Reverse Battery Detection is enabled and a battery is connected with the incorrect polarity, the
SC200 will:
activate a Wrong Battery Polarity alarm, and
prevent any LVD from connecting.

Reverse Battery Detection uses the battery mid-point monitoring (MPM) analog inputs on an
IOBGP input/output board. Any of the mid-point monitoring analog inputs used for Reverse
Battery Detection are not available for MPM (see details on page 57).
► To enable Reverse Battery Detection
1 Before the batteries are connected to the dc power system, connect the mid-point
monitoring sense wires to the battery sides of the battery fuses/disconnect devices (leave
the fuses/disconnect devices open). Refer to the dc power system Installation and
Operation Guide.

There are four mid-point monitoring analog inputs on an IOBGP input/output board (for four
battery fuses/disconnect devices). Up to 20 additional battery fuses/disconnect devices can be
connected if additional IOBGP-01 input/output boards are connected. Refer to the dc power
system Installation and Operation Guide for details on how to connect additional IOBGP-01
input/output boards to the SC200.

System Operation
Generator Control
Generator Control is used to delay the start of a standby ac generator until the batteries are
partially discharged (rather than immediately after the ac supply fails). This can save fuel by
preventing the generator running during short ac supply failures. It can also be used to control
a generator in a hybrid power system (cyclic charge/discharge).
Generator Control uses a digital output (relay) which is connected in series with the generator
run signal of the generator controller. The relay contacts interrupt the generator run signal until
the Generator Control is active.
The Generator Control output is activated and deactivated depending on the setting of Automatic
Control Mode. The options are:
Disabled – The controller will not activate the generator control relay based on control
functions. However, alarms mapped to the same relay will activate and deactivate the
relay.
Fast Charge Only – The controller will activate the generator control relay while Fast Charge
is active or pending, and deactivate it when the Fast Charge cycle ends.
Fast Charge or Equalize – The controller will activate the generator control relay while either
Fast Charge or Equalize is active or pending, and deactivate it when the Fast Charge or
Equalize cycle ends.
Every Mains Failure – The controller will activate the generator control relay as soon as an ac
supply failure is detected, and deactivate it when the ac supply is restored.
A Generator Fail alarm is activated if the SC200 does not detect that the ac supply is present
(rectifiers have turned on) after the Generator Fail Alarm Recognition Period following Generator
Control becoming active.
The generator can also be started and stopped manually.
► To manually start the generator
Make sure that Maximum Run Time has been set to a value greater than zero.
Use the SC200 keypad to go to: Control Processes > Generator Control > Settings (tab) and
select Start Manual Run.
In DCTools/Web go to Control Processes > Generator Control and click Start.
► To manually stop the generator after a manual start
Use the SC200 keypad to go to: Control Processes > Generator Control > Settings (tab) and
select Cancel Manual Run.
In DCTools/Web go to Control Processes > Generator Control and click Cancel.

This will not stop the generator if it is running due to a Fast Charge, Equalize, or AC failure.
When the generator has been started manually, Generator Run Time Remaining shows the time
remaining for the generator to run.
► To view Generator Run Time Remaining
Use the SC200 keypad to go to: Control Processes > Generator Control.
In DCTools/Web go to Control Processes > Generator Control.

More than one rectifier has lost communications. See also Rectifier Comms Lost on
page 110.
Multiple Rectifier Fail
Multiple rectifiers are faulty or their ac supply has failed without causing partial or
total ac supply failure.
Inhibited by: AC Fail and Partial AC Fail (if no more than one rectifier has failed
while still detecting the AC supply). See details of Alarm Inhibiting on page 47.
Partial AC Fail
A digital input with Function set to "Phase Fail" is active, or more than 20% of singlephase rectifiers are reporting ac supply failure, or all 3-phase rectifiers are reporting
loss of the same phase.
Inhibited by: AC Fail. See details of Alarm Inhibiting on page 47.
Rectifier Comms Lost
Normally this alarm indicates that a rectifier has been removed during routine
maintenance. However, faulty rectifier communications or losing the rectifier
communications bus can also trigger this alarm. If removing multiple rectifiers
triggers this alarm, reset it from the keypad before it triggers an external alarm.
Inhibited by: Multiple Rectifier Comms Lost. See details of Alarm Inhibiting on page
47.
Rectifier Current Limit
Rectifier(s) in current limit.
Rectifier Fail
A rectifier is faulty or its ac supply has failed without causing partial or total ac
supply failure.
Inhibited by: Multiple Rectifier Fail, AC Fail and Partial AC Fail (if no rectifiers have
failed while still detecting the AC supply). See details of Alarm Inhibiting on page
47.

Alarm Descriptions
Rectifier No Load
The total rectifier current is less than 2% of the maximum system output current or is
less than 2A.
Inhibited by: AC Fail. See details of Alarm Inhibiting on page 47.
Rectifier Over
Temperature
Rectifier(s) operating in temperature turndown mode, because of high ambient
temperature or low ac supply voltage.
Sensor Fail
The current, temperature or voltage sensing system is faulty, or the I/O board
mapping is incorrect.
Standby Mode
The SC200 is on but inactive. Another system controller controls the dc power
system. If the other system controller fails or is disconnected then the SC200 in
Standby Mode will become active (after a short delay).
String Fail
There is a voltage imbalance in one of the battery strings. See Battery Mid-point
Monitoring on page 57.
System Overload
The power system is operating close to its maximum capacity and more rectifiers are
needed. The System Overload threshold is configurable. See System Overload Alarm
on page 47.
Inhibited by: AC Fail. See details of Alarm Inhibiting on page 47.
Unknown Hardware
The SC200 has detected an unknown type of device on the RXP bus. Contact your
Eaton DC product supplier for advice.
Unmapped IOB Found
An I/O board or SiteSure-3G module is connected to the SC200, but its serial number
is not in the I/O Board to Serial Number Mapping table. See I/O Board Mapping on
page 119.
Wrong Battery Polarity
An analog input with Function set to "Reverse Battery Detect" has a value above the
Bus Voltage.
This alarm indicates the battery is connected with wrong polarity. See Reverse
Battery Detection on page 64.

SC200 Mappings
p

x
E
The SC200 uses mappings to allow it to associate internal functions, alarms and physical I/O
devices.

A default mapping is set at the factory before delivery. Usually this default mapping will not need
to be changed.
I/O Board Mapping
The serial numbers of an I/O board and SiteSure-3G modules, and the physical connectors on
the board/modules are mapped to logical numbers in the SC200. This allows the physical
inputs and outputs (including LVD contactors) to be recognized by the SC200.
I/O Board serial number mapping
Each I/O board serial number must be mapped to a logical IOB Number.
Usually, I/O board serial number mappings only need to be changed if:
The I/O board is changed or added. See details on page 104.
The SC200 is changed and/or a new configuration file is loaded into the SC200. See details
on page 104.

This mapping is not included in configuration files and must be set if an SC200 is changed or
loaded with a new configuration file. Input/output, sensors and most voltage control processes are
only available if this mapping is set.
► To map I/O boards
Either:
Use the SC200 keypad to go to: Settings > IOBs. The serial numbers of registered
input/output boards are displayed.
Select an unmapped Input/Output board (identified as New). Press Enter. Identity
information is displayed and the I/O board LED will flash.
Press Map and select an unused IOB Number (or one marked as Missing, if replacing an
I/O board). Press Enter.
Or:
In DCTools/Web go to: Configuration > RXP
Copy the I/O board serial number(s) from the RXP Devices table to the I/O Board to Serial
Number Mapping table to map an IOB Number to each I/O board (overwrite an existing
serial number if required).

If multiple SiteSure-3G modules are installed use the I/O board Identify function to physically
identify each board. See details on page 70.

I/O connector mapping
Each I/O connector (analog input, digital input and digital output) on an I/O board must be
mapped to a logical IOB Number and IOB AI, IOB DI or IOB DO Number.
► To map I/O connectors
See Analog Inputs on page 71, Digital Inputs on page 74 and Digital Outputs on page 75.
