Sure Cross® Performance DX80 Wireless I/O Networks
1 The Sure Cross® Performance Wireless Network
The Sure Cross® Performance wireless I/O network provides
reliable monitoring without wiring or conduit installation. The
SureCross wireless network operates independently or in
conjunction with a host system, PLC, and/or PC software.
Node
FlexPower Node
with Integrated
Battery
Each wireless network system consists of one Gateway and
one or more Nodes. Devices ship with factory-defined discrete,
analog, or a mix of discrete and analog inputs and outputs.
The Sure Cross® Performance network is a deterministic
system—the network identifies when the radio signal is lost
and drives relevant outputs to user-defined conditions. After
the radio signal is reacquired, the network returns to normal
operation.
Gateway
Node
1.1 Sure Cross® Performance Gateways and Nodes
Every wireless network must have one Gateway, which schedules communication traffic and controls the I/O configuration
for the network, and one or more Nodes.
A Gateway is the master device within each radio network. Similar to how a gateway device on a wired network acts as a
“portal” between networks, the SureCross Gateway acts as the portal between the wireless network and the host
controller. When the Gateway, using its Modbus RTU RS-485 connection, is a Modbus slave to a Modbus RTU host
controller, the wireless network may contain up to 47 Nodes in a single wireless network. The Gateway holds the Modbus
registers of all wireless devices within the network.
A Node is a wireless network end-point device used to provide sensing capability in a remote area or factory. The Node
collects data from sensors and communicates the data back to the Gateway. Nodes are available in a wide variety of power
or input/output options.
1.2 Sure Cross® Performance GatewayPro
The Sure Cross® Performance GatewayPro combines the function of a Sure Cross® Performance Gateway with the ability
to interface to Ethernet using Modbus/TCP or EtherNet/IP™ protocols.
There are two basic models of the GatewayPro:
•
•
DX80P*T6*. The T6 model acts as a protocol converter only, offering the Modbus/TCP or EtherNet/IP
communication protocols.
DX80P*A6*. The A6 model includes DX80 wireless network configuration, Modbus RTU master, Modbus/TCP
client/server, Script Basic, e-mail, data logging, and trending.
Connect a host controller system to the GatewayPro using its industrial Ethernet connection. To connect the GatewayPro to
the host system without using an Ethernet switchbox/hub, some host systems may require a crossover cable.
By default, the GatewayPro is configured to use Modbus/TCP. To use EtherNet/IP, connect the GatewayPro to a managed
switch and you must use the Web Configuration tool to select EtherNet/IP. For more information, see SureCross Wireless
I/O Product Manual or Host Configuration Manual.
1.3 DX83 Ethernet Bridge Overview
A DX83 Ethernet Bridge connected to a DX80 Gateway functions like a DX80 GatewayPro and allows the Gateway to have
I/O points. The DX83 Ethernet Bridge adds the Web page configuration ability to a Gateway-Node wireless network as well
as the ability to interface to Ethernet using Modbus/TCP or EtherNet/IP protocols.
There are two basic DX83 models:
•
•
DX83T acts as a protocol converter only, offering the Modbus/TCP or EtherNet/IP communication protocols.
DX83A includes DX80 wireless network configuration, Modbus RTU master, Modbus/TCP client/server, Script Basic,
e-mail, data logging, and trending.

Sure Cross® Performance DX80 Wireless I/O Networks
Power
Ethernet cable (crossover cable
when connecting to a computer;
straight cable when connecting to
a hub or switch box)
Connect a DX83 Ethernet Bridge to a host system using the
industrial Ethernet connection on the DX83. To connect the
DX83 directly to the host system without using an Ethernet
switchbox/hub, some host systems may require a
crossover cable.
By default, the DX83 is configured to use Modbus/TCP. To
use EtherNet/IP, you must connect the DX83 to a managed
switch and you must use the Web Configuration tool to
select EtherNet/IP (see SureCross Wireless I/O Product
Manual or Host Configuration Manual).

CSB-M1240M1241 4-pin splitter cable (yellow)
1.4 Host Controller Systems
Host controller systems collect I/O data for logging, controlling other devices, or performing calculations.
Host controller systems can contain up to 15 Nodes (when using Rotary Dial Addressing Mode) or 47 Nodes (when using
Extended Addressing Mode) within a single network. Inputs from Nodes within the network are transmitted to the
Gateway, which communicates the information to a host system for processing. Although the Gateway is the master device
within the radio network, it may be a slave to the Modbus network.
Host controlled DX80 wireless systems are configured using an Ethernet network connection and a Web page browser. An
Ethernet connection can be established from a DX80 GatewayPro or a DX83 Ethernet Bridge serially connected to the DX80
Gateway.
1.5 What is FlexPower®?
Banner’s FlexPower technology supplies a true wireless solution by allowing the device to operate using either 10 to 30 V
dc, 3.6 V lithium D cell batteries, or solar power. This unique power management system can operate a FlexPower Node
and an optimized sensing device for up to five years on a single lithium D cell.
• FlexPower Nodes may be powered from 10 to 30 V dc and use an external battery supply module to provide a
battery back-up solution.
• When a FlexPower Node receives 10 to 30 V dc, it operates like a standard 10 to 30 V dc Node.
• Good applications for FlexPower devices operating from batteries include sensors that require no or very little
power, including dry contacts, RTDs, and thermocouples.
The following FlexPower options are available:
•
•
•
•

DX81, a single battery supply module;
DX81P6, a 6-pack of lithium batteries;
DX81H, a single battery supply module designed specifically to power the DX99 Intrinsically Safe devices with
polycarbonate housings; and
BWA-SOLAR-001, a solar power assembly that includes the solar panel, rechargeable batteries, and solar power
controller.

1.6 Sure Cross® User Configuration Tool
The User Configuration Tool (UCT) offers an easy way to link I/O points in your wireless network, view I/O register values,
and set system communication parameters when a host system is not part of the wireless network.
The User Configuration Tool (UCT) software runs on any computer with the Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, or
Windows 10 operating system.
Use a USB to RS-485 adapter cable to connect a standalone DX80 Gateway to the
computer. For DXM Controllers with an internal DX80 radio, connect a computer to
the DXM Controller using a USB or Ethernet connection. Download the most recent
revisions of the UCT software from Banner Engineering's website:
www.bannerengineering.com/wireless.
The USB to RS-485 adapter cable is not required for the DXM Controller. For
standalone DX80 Gateway devices use:
• USB to RS-485 adapter cable model BWA-UCT-900 for 1 Watt radios
• USB to RS-485 adapter cable model BWA-HW-006 for all other radios

Sure Cross® Performance DX80 Wireless I/O Networks
3 Setting Up Your Wireless Network
To set up and install your wireless network, follow these steps.
Disconnect the power from your Sure Cross devices.
1. Configure the DIP switches of all devices. For DIP switch configurations, refer to the product's datasheet.
2. If your device has I/O, connect the sensors to the Sure Cross devices. For available I/O, refer to the product's
datasheet. If your device does not have I/O, skip this step.
3. Refer to the wiring diagrams to apply power to all devices.
•
For two LED models, the Gateway's LED 1 is solid green and the Node's LED 2 flashes red to indicate there is no
radio link to the Gateway.
• For one LED models, the Gateway's LED is solid green and the Node's LED flashes red to indicate there is no radio
link to the Gateway.
4. Form the wireless network by binding the Nodes to the Gateway.
5. Observe the LED behavior to verify the devices are communicating with each other.
•
For two LED models, the Gateway's LED 1 is solid green and the Node's LED 1 flashes green to indicate it is
communicating with the Gateway.
• For one LED models, the Gateway's LED is solid green and the Node's LED flashes green to indicate it is
communicating with the Gateway.
6. Configure any I/O points to use the sensors connected to the Sure Cross devices.
7. Conduct a site survey between the Gateway and Nodes.
8. Install your wireless sensor network components.
3.1 Using Extended Address Mode
Using extended address mode isolates networks from one another by assigning a unique code, the extended address code,
to all devices in a particular network. Only devices sharing the extended address code can exchange data.
In addition to isolating networks, using extended addressing mode allows you to use up to 47 Nodes with a single
Gateway. Without extended addressing, only 15 Nodes can communicate with a single Gateway.
The extended address code in the Gateway defaults to a code derived from its serial number, although the code can be
customized using the manual binding procedure. Binding DX80 devices "locks" Nodes to a specific Gateway by teaching the
Nodes the Gateway’s extended address code. After the devices are bound, the Nodes only accept data from the Gateway
to which they are bound.
Important: All SureCross Performance Gateways and Nodes are preconfigured for extended addressing mode and
cannot use rotary dial address mode. Skip this step in the installation procedure for Performance products.
For all other SureCross DX80 models, follow these steps to activate
extended address mode. After making any changes to DIP switch settings,
you must cycle power to the device or the DIP switch changes will not be
recognized.
1. Disconnect the Gateway and its Nodes* from their power source.
2. Remove the top covers of all radios.
3. Move DIP switch 1 to the ON position. (Refer to the Device
Configuration section of the device's data sheet for instructions on
accessing the DIP switches.)
4. Apply power to the radios.
* To cycle power to devices with batteries integrated into the housing,
remove the battery for one minute.
3.2 Using Performance and Non-Performance Radios in the Same
Network
To comply with federal regulations, the 150 mW radios and 1 Watt radios communicate differently. To mix Performance
radios with non-Performance radios:
•
•
14
Operate Performance radios in 250 mW mode to communicate with non-Performance radios (DIP switch 1 ON)
Set non-Performance radios to use Extended Address Mode to communicate with Performance radios (DIP switch 1
ON)

Sure Cross® Performance DX80 Wireless I/O Networks
For more detailed instructions about setting up your wireless network, refer to the Quick Start Guide (p/n 128185). For
more information about using Performance and non-Performance radios within the same network, refer the technical note
titled Mixing Performance Radios and 150 mW Radios in the Same Network listed on the Wireless Support - FAQs section

The Gateway begins in RUN mode, displays the current network ID (NID), then identifies itself as a Gateway.
2. Apply power to the Node by connecting the 10 to 30 V dc cable or the DX81 Battery Supply Module as shown. To apply
power to a FlexPower Node with an integrated battery, install the battery into the housing.
The Node starts in RUN mode, displays the current network ID, then identifies itself as a Node and lists its device ID.
3.4 Bind Radios to Form Networks
Binding Nodes to a Gateway ensures the Nodes only exchange data with the Gateway they are bound to. For a more
detailed definition of binding mode, refer to the Advanced Setup section of the SureCross Wireless I/O Networks
instruction manual.
Apply power to the Gateway and Nodes.
1. Enter binding mode on the Gateway.

is complete, the LED is red and green for four seconds (looks amber), then the red and green flash simultaneously
(looks amber) four times.
The Node automatically exits binding mode, cycles its power, then enters RUN mode.
3. Use the Node's rotary dials to assign a valid decimal Node Address (between 01 and 47). The left rotary dial represents
the tens digit (0 through 4) and the right dial represents the ones digit (0 through 9) of the Node Address.
4. Repeat steps 2 and 3 for all Nodes that will communicate to this Gateway.
5. Exit binding mode on the Gateway.
•
•
•
If you have a two-button Gateway, single-click either button.
If you have a one-button Gateway, single-click the button.
If you have a Gateway with no buttons, change the Gateway's rotary dials to a valid Network ID.
Valid Network IDs are 01 through 32, in decimal, established using the rotary dials. The left dial may be set to 0, 1, 2,
or 3. The right dial may be set from 0 to 9 when the left dial is at 0, 1, or 2; or set to 0 through 2 when the left dial is
at 3. (Positions A through F are invalid network ID numbers.)
When installing special kits with pre-mapped I/O, indicated by device model numbers beginning in DX80K, return the
rotary dials to their original positions after binding. If the rotary dials are not returned to their original positions, the I/O
mapping will not work.
3.5 LED Behavior for the Gateways
Verify all devices are communicating properly. The radios and antennas must be a minimum distance apart to function
properly. Recommended minimum distances are:
900 MHz 150 mW and 250 mW radios: 6 feet
900 MHz 1 Watt radios: 15 feet
2.4 GHz 65 mW radios: 1 foot

3.7 Conducting a Site Survey (Gateway and Nodes)
A Site Survey, also known as a Radio Signal Strength Indication (RSSI), analyzes the radio communications link between
the Gateway and any Node within the network by analyzing the radio signal strength of received data packets and
reporting the number of missed packets that required a retry.
Perform a Site Survey before permanently installing the radio network to ensure reliable communication. Activate Site
Survey mode from either the Gateway buttons or the Gateway Modbus holding register 15. Only the Gateway can initiate a
Site Survey, and the Site Survey analyzes the radio communications link with one Node at a time.
3.7.1 Conducting a Site Survey Using the Menu System
Initiate a Site Survey using the Gateway’s buttons and menu system.
1. Remove the rotary dial access cover.
2. To check the status of Node 1, change the Gateway’s right rotary dial to 1.
The Gateway is now enabled to read the status of Node 1; the display scrolls through the Node’s I/O status.
3. Single-click button 1 to scroll across the menu levels until reaching the Site Survey (SITE) menu.
4. Single-click button 2 to enter the Site Survey menu.
5. Single-click button 2 to begin conducting a Site Survey with the Node selected in step 2.
The Gateway analyzes the quality of the signal from the selected Node by counting the number of data packets it
receives from the Node.
6. Examine reception readings (M, R, Y, G) of the Gateway at various locations.
Site survey results display as a percentage. M represents the percent of missed packets while R, Y, and G represent the
percent of received packets at a given signal strength.
M = Percent of missed packets; R = RED marginal signal; Y = YELLOW good signal; G = GREEN excellent signal.
Record the results if you need troubleshooting assistance from the factory.
7. Change the Gateway's right rotary dial to conduct a Site Survey with another Node and repeat steps 2 through 6.
8. To end the Site Survey, double-click button 2.
9. Change the Gateway's right rotary dial back to 0.
The LCD displays the device readings for the Gateway.
10. Double-click button 2 to move back to the top level menu.
11. Single-click button 1 to return to RUN mode.
12. Install the rotary dial access cover, referring to the Installation section of the manual to create an IP67 seal.

3.7.2 Interpreting the Site Survey Results
Site Survey results are listed as a percentage of data packets received and indicate the signal strength of the received
signal.
Result
Description
Green
Packets received at a strong signal strength. A strong signal strength is greater than −90
dBm at the receiver.
Yellow
Packets received at a good signal strength. A good signal is between −90 and −100 dBm
at the receiver.
Red
Missed
Packets received at a weak signal strength. A weak signal is less than −100 dBm at the
receiver.
Packets not received on the first transmission and requiring a retry.
Judging if the reliability of a network’s signal meets the needs of the application is not just a matter of green, yellow, and
red packets received. In normal operating mode, when data packets are not received, the transmitter re-sends the packet
until all data is received.
For slow monitoring applications such as a tank farm, where data is required in terms of seconds or minutes, receiving
most of the data in the ‘red’ range, indicating a weak but reliable signal, transmits enough data for accurate monitoring.
Nodes positioned near the outside range of the radio signal may have 90% of the data packets received in the red zone,
again indicating a weak, but reliable signal.
18

Sure Cross® Performance DX80 Wireless I/O Networks
We recommend keeping the missed packets average to less than 40%. When the network misses more than 40% of the
data packets, the signal is usually too unreliable or obstacles may be interfering with the signal. When Site Survey reports
the missed packets are 40% or higher, improve the radio system performance by:
• Mounting the network’s antennas higher,
• Using higher gain antennas, or
• Adding data radios to the network.
Mounting the devices’ antennas higher allows the radio signal to clear obstacles in the area and improves the line of sight
between Sure Cross® devices. Higher gain antennas focus the energy of the radio signal in a specific direction and extend
the signal’s range. Using data radios is another option to consider when trying to extend the range of a radio network. For
more information on data radios, please refer to Banner’s white paper on range extension on
www.bannerengineering.com/wireless.
3.7.3 Site Survey Troubleshooting
Some tips and tricks about improving radio signal reception may improve the site survey results.
Marginal Site Survey (RSSI) Results. If the distance between devices is greater than 5,000 meters (3 miles) line-ofsight or objects, such as trees or man-made obstructions, interfere with the path, and the MISSED packet count exceeds
40 per 100 packets, consider the following steps:
• Raise the DX80 units to a higher elevation, either by physically moving the devices or installing the antenna(s)
remotely at a higher position;
• Use a higher gain antenna;
• Decrease the distance between devices; or
• Use data radios to extend the position of the Gateway relative to the host system.
3.7.4 Conduct a Site Survey Using Modbus Commands
Use Modbus commands sent from the host system to start a Site Survey.
To start a Site Survey using a Modbus write holding register command, send a control code of 32 (0x20) and the Node
number 1 through 15 (0x01 to 0x0F) to the Gateway Modbus holding register for I/O 15.

When Site Survey runs, the accumulated results are stored in the Gateway’s I/O 7 and I/O 8 holding registers. The LEDs
on the both the Gateway and the Node’s front panel display the signal strength for the wireless RF link. The quality of the
communications link is indicated by:
Green LED = excellent signal strength
Amber LED = good signal strength
Red LED = poor signal strength
The signal strength is the transmitted signal strength relative to the ambient RF signal present in a specific location, or
noise floor.

Sure Cross® Performance DX80 Wireless I/O Networks
The Gateway also displays the Site Survey results on the LCD (for models with an LCD). For one transmit and receive
interval, the Gateway saves the lowest signal strength. The LCD and Modbus registers contain the results of the last 100
samples. The totals are a running tally of the last 100 samples and are continuously updated. Four categories are
displayed:
G (green) = excellent signal strength
Y (yellow) = good signal strength
R (red) = poor signal strength
M = Missed packet
To disable Site Survey, send control code 32 (0x20) and Node number 0 (0x0).
3.7.4 Site Survey Data Holding
With Site Survey active, registers I/O 7 and 8 are Site Survey data holding registers that store the accumulated Site
Survey results. Error collections in holding register 8 are saved when Site Survey runs and restored after Site Survey is
disabled.

4 Installing Your Sure Cross® Radios
Follow these recommendations to install your wireless network components.
4.1 Mounting SureCross Devices Outdoors
Use a Secondary Enclosure. For most outdoor applications, we recommend installing your SureCross devices inside a
secondary enclosure. For a list of available enclosures, refer to the Accessories list.
Point Away From Direct Sunlight. When you are not using a secondary
enclosure, minimize the damaging effects of ultra-violet radiation by mounting
the devices to avoid facing intense direct sunlight.
• Mount under an overhang or other source of shade,
• Install indoors, or
• Face the devices north when installing outside.
For harsh outdoor applications, consider installing your radio inside a secondary
enclosure. For a list of available enclosures, refer to the Accessories list.
Mount Vertically to Avoid Collecting Rain. When possible, mount the devices where rain or snow will drain away from
the device.
•
•
Mount vertically so that precipitation, dust, and dirt do not accumulate on permeable surfaces.
Avoid mounting the devices on flat or concave surfaces, especially if the display will be pointing up.
Remove Moisture and Condensation. If condensation is present in any
device, add a small desiccant packet to the inside of the radio. To help vent the
radios, Banner also sells a vented plug (model number BWA-HW-031) for the
1/2-inch NPT port of the SureCross radios.
4.1.1 Watertight Glands and NPT Ports
To make glands and plugs watertight, use PTFE tape and follow these steps.
1. Wrap four to eight passes of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) tape around
the threads as close as possible to the hexagonal body of the gland.
2. Manually thread the gland into the housing hole. Never apply more than
5 in-lbf of torque to the gland or its cable clamp nut. 3
Seal any unused PG-7 access holes with one of the supplied black plastic plugs. To install a watertight PG-7 plug:
1. Wrap four to eight passes of PTFE tape around the plug’s threads, as close as possible to the flanged surface.
2. Carefully thread the plastic plug into the vacant hole in the housing and tighten using a slotting screwdriver. Never
apply more than 10 in-lbf torque to the plastic plug.
Seal the 1/2-inch or 3/4-inch NPT port(s) if it is not used. To install a watertight NPT plug:
1. Wrap 12 to 16 passes of PTFE tape evenly across the length of the threads.
2. Manually thread the plug into the housing port until reaching some resistance.
3. Using a crescent wrench, turn the plug until all the plug’s threads are engaged by the housing port or until the
resistance doubles. Do not over-tighten as this will damage the Sure Cross unit. These threads are tapered and will
create a waterproof seal without over-tightening.
3 This is not a lot of torque and is equivalent to the torque generated without using tools. If a wrench is used, apply only very light pressure.
Torquing these fittings excessively damages the device.

4.2 Other Installation Requirements
4.2 Reduce Chemical Exposure
Before installing any devices in a chemically harsh environment, contact the manufacturer for more information regarding
the life-expectancy. Solvents, oxidizing agents, and other chemicals will damage the devices.
4.2 Minimize Mechanical Stress
Although these radio devices are very durable, they are sophisticated electronic devices that are sensitive to shock and
excessive loading.
•
•
•
•
Avoid mounting the devices to an object that may be shifting or vibrating excessively. High levels of static force or
acceleration may damage the housing or electronic components.
Do not subject the devices to external loads. Do not step on them or use them as handgrips.
Do not allow long lengths of cable to hang from the glands on the Gateway or Node. Cabling heavier than 100
grams should be supported instead of allowed to hang from the housing.
Do not crack the housing by over-tightening the top screws. Do not exceed the maximum torque of 4 in-lbf.
It is the user’s responsibility to install these devices so they will not be subject to over-voltage transients. Always ground
the devices in accordance with local, state, or national regulations.
4.2 When Installing Performance or MultiHop 1-Watt Radios
Notice: This equipment must be professionally installed. The output power must be limited, through the use of firmware or
a hardware attenuator, when using high-gain antennas such that the +36 dBm EIRP limit is not exceeded.
4.3 Installation Quick Tips
The following are some quick tips for improving the installation of wireless network components.
4.3.1 Create a Clear Communication Path
Wireless communication is hindered by radio interference and obstructions in the path between the transmitter and
receiver. To achieve the best radio performance, carefully consider the installation locations for the Gateways and Nodes
and select locations without obstructions in the path.
For more information about antennas, please refer to the Antenna Basics reference guide, Banner document p/n 132113.
4.3.2 Increase the Height of the Antennas
Position the external antenna vertically for optimal RF communication. If necessary, consider changing the height of the
SureCross radio, or its antenna, to improve reception. For outdoor applications, mounting the antenna on top of a building
or pole may help achieve a line-of-sight radio link with the other radios in the network.

4.3.3 Collocated Radios
When the radio network’s master device is located too close to another radio device, communications between all devices
is interrupted. For this reason, always assign a unique Network ID to your wireless networks. The Network ID (NID) is a
unique identifier you assign to each wireless network to minimizes the chances of two collocated networks interfering with
each other. Assigning different NIDs to different networks improves collocation performance in dense installations.
4.3.4 Be Aware of Seasonal Changes
When conducting the initial Site Survey, the fewest possible missed packets for a given link is better. However, seasonal
changes may affect the signal strength and the total signal quality. Radios installed outside with 50% missed packets in
the winter months may have 80% or more missed packets in the summer when leaves and trees interfere with radio
reception.
Figure 1. A good signal in winter doesn't always mean you will get the same signal strength the rest of the year.
Figure 2. During spring and summer, leaves may block more of the radio signal.
4.4 Basic Remote Antenna Installation
A remote antenna system is any antenna system where the antenna is not connected directly to the radio; coaxial cable
connects the antenna to the radio.
When installing a remote antenna system, always include a lightning arrestor or coaxial surge suppressor in the system.
Remote antenna systems installed without surge protection invalidate the warranty of the radio devices.
Surge suppressors should be properly grounded and mounted at ground level near where the cabling enters a building.
Install the surge suppressor indoors or inside a weatherproof enclosure to minimize corrosion or component deterioration.
For best results, mount the surge suppressor as close to the ground as possible to minimize the length of the ground
connection and use a single-point ground system to avoid creating ground loops.
For more detailed information about how antennas work and how to install them, refer to Antenna Basics (p/n 132113)
(also included as a chapter within the product manual).

I/O Isolation. When connecting analog and discrete I/O to external equipment such as VFDs (Variable Frequency
Drives), it may be appropriate to install interposing relays and/or loop isolation devices to protect the DX80 unit from
transients, noise, and ground plane interference originating from devices or the environment. Contact Banner Engineering
Corp. for more information.
4.4.1 Weatherproof Remote Antenna Installations
Seal the connections with rubber splicing tape and electrical tape to prevent water damage to the cable and connections.
Step 1: Verify both connections are clean and dry before
connecting the antenna cable to the antenna or other cable.
Hand-tighten the cable connections.
Step 2: Tightly wrap the entire connection with rubber splicing
tape. Begin wrapping the rubber splicing tape one inch away
from the connection and continue wrapping until you are one
inch past the other end of the connection. Each new round of
tape should overlap about half the previous round.
Step 3: Protect the rubber splicing tape from UV damage by
tightly wrapping electrical tape on top of the rubber splicing
tape. The electrical tape should completely cover the rubber
splicing tape and overlap the rubber tape by one inch on each
side of the connection.
4.4.2 Installing Remote Antennas
Install and properly ground a qualified surge suppressor when installing a remote antenna system. Remote antenna configurations installed without surge
suppressors invalidate the manufacturer's warranty. Keep the ground wire as short as possible and make all ground connections to a single-point ground system to ensure no
ground loops are created. No surge suppressor can absorb all lightning strikes; do not touch the Sure Cross® device or any equipment connected to the Sure Cross device
during a thunderstorm.

Baud and Parity. The options for baud rate are: 19200, 38400, or 9600. For parity, select None, Even, or Odd.
Extended Address (Binding) Code. Binding Nodes to a Gateway ensures the Nodes only exchange data with the
Gateway they are bound to. After a Gateway enters binding mode, the Gateway automatically generates and
transmits a unique extended addressing (XADR), or binding, code to all Nodes within range that are also in binding
mode. The extended addressing (binding) code defines the network, and all radios within a network must use the
same code.
Max Nodes. Selecting the maximum number of system radio devices (Gateway and all Nodes) changes the timing
for the wireless network. For example, if you are running four Nodes in your wireless network, set the system's
maximum device count to 8. This allows up to 8 radio devices, including the Gateway, in the wireless network and
offers the highest throughput, 62.5 milliseconds, for each Node. The choices are 8, 16, 32, and 48 devices.
Network ID. The Network ID (NID) is a unique identifier you assign to each wireless network to minimizes the
chances of two collocated networks interfering with each other. Assigning different NIDs to different networks
improves collocation performance in dense installations.
Slave ID. The slave ID is an identifying number used for devices within a Modbus system. By default, Gateways
are set to Modbus Slave ID 1. When using more than one Modbus slave, assign each slave a unique ID number.
On Nodes, use the DVCFG to set the network ID (NID) and extended address binding code (XADR). The Node address
(NADR), also referred to as a Node ID or device address, is only functional on some models.

the Gateway’s LCD.
On the Node use the DERR menu to view and ignore error messages for that Node.
5.2 Web-based Configuration
The SureCross wireless systems are configured using an Ethernet network connection and a common Web page browser.
An Ethernet connection can be established from a GatewayPro or from a DX83 Ethernet Bridge serially connected to the
Gateway.
The Ethernet Bridge and GatewayPro each ship with an Ethernet crossover cable. One end of the cable is a RJ45 connector
and the other end is an industrial Ethernet connector. This cable is designed to be connected directly to a computer.
5.2 Example Layout #1
When connecting a Gateway to a host system, the wireless network must be configured using the User Configuration Tool
(UCT). When you are not using a GatewayPro or Ethernet Bridge, you cannot configure the wireless network using the Web
Configurator.

Typically, the Modbus RTU connection at a GatewayPro is not used because the GatewayPro contains a master and slave
device. The Modbus RTU factory default settings for a standard Gateway are: 19200 baud; 8 data bits; No stop bits; 1
parity bit; Modbus Slave ID 1.
5.2.1 Accessing the Web-based Configuration Screens
The configuration Web pages are served from the DX83 Ethernet Bridge or GatewayPro and are accessed using any
Internet browser.
Before accessing the Web-based configuration screens, configure the browser for a direct connection to the Internet. If you
are experiencing problems connecting, verify the browser is not set to use a proxy server. Use a crossover Ethernet cable
when connecting directly from a host computer to the DX83 Ethernet Bridge or GatewayPro; use a standard Ethernet cable
when connecting through a switch or Ethernet hub.
The factory default IP address for the DX83 Ethernet Bridge or GatewayPro is: 192.168.0.1 To change the default IP
address, set up the host PC with an IP address different from the Ethernet Bridge or GatewayPro IP addresses. (Refer to
Banner document p/n 133116 for detailed instructions on setting up the host computer’s network IP address.) For
example, change the PC host IP address to: 192.168.0.2. To access the configuration screens, follow these steps.

5.3 Binding Mode: What does it do?
Binding Nodes to a Gateway ensures the Nodes only exchange data with the Gateway they are bound to. After a Gateway
enters binding mode, the Gateway automatically generates and transmits a unique extended addressing (XADR), or
binding, code to all Nodes within range that are also in binding mode. The extended addressing (binding) code defines the
network, and all radios within a network must use the same code.
After binding your Nodes to the Gateway, make note of the binding code displayed under the *DVCFG > XADR menu on
the Gateway's LCD. Knowing the binding code prevents having to re-bind all Nodes if the Gateway is ever replaced.
5.4 More Details About Extended Address Mode
During automatic binding, the Gateway broadcasts the extended address code to all Nodes currently in binding mode. To
manually bind, enter the extended address code manually into each network device. Manually binding is particularly useful
when replacing or upgrading network devices.
Users of the DX80 product do not need to be aware of other nearby networks to ensure their network does not
unintentionally exchange data with other networks. However, assigning different NIDs to different networks improves
collocation performance in dense installations; this is true whether the network is in standard addressing mode or
extended addressing mode.
Important: The extended addressing code is independent from the system network ID (NID). Consequently,
multiple networks can share a NID and will not exchange data; the networks are completely isolated from one
another.

5.8 Default Output Conditions
The timeout structure of the SureCross wireless network sets relevant outputs to user-defined conditions when radio or
host communications fail.
If the timeout features are enabled, the outputs are set to default states or the last known state before the error. The
timeout error conditions are cleared by either a reset command sent from the host, using the front panel display, or using
the auto-recover feature. Communications timeouts occur in three areas within the SureCross wireless system:
•
•
•
Host Link Failure to the Gateway (Modbus Timeout)
Gateway Link Failure with any Node
Node Link Failure with the Gateway
5.8.1 Host Link Failure
A host link failure occurs when the defined timeout period, typically set to four seconds, has elapsed with no
communications between the host system (or Modbus master device) and the Gateway.
The Gateway places an error code in its I/O 8 register and sends a message to all relevant Nodes within the system to set
outputs to the user-defined default states. Each Node has an enable flag for a host link failure condition. If a Node’s ‘host
link failure’ flag is not set, the outputs on the Node are not affected.
In the example shown, a host link failure between the host system and Gateway result in the outputs of Node 1 and Node
2 sent to the defined conditions if both Nodes have the host link failure checkbox selected.

5.8.2 Gateway Link Failure
Gateway link failures are determined by three global parameters: polling interval, maximum missed message count, and
re-link count.
The polling interval (or rate) defines how often the Gateway communicates with each Node to verify the radio link is
operating. The Gateway increments a Node’s missed message count if a Node does not immediately report back from a
polling request. If a Node’s missed message count exceeds the maximum missed message count, the Gateway
generates a timeout error in the Modbus I/O 8 register of the appropriate Node.
The auto-recover feature uses the re-link count parameter. If enabled, the error condition heals itself if the Gateway and
Node have successfully exchanged N-number of good polling messages. The N-number is the re-link count, or the number
of messages required to re-establish a radio link.
When the Node’s Gateway Link Failure flag is set and the Gateway determines a timeout condition exists for a Node, any
outputs linked from the failing Node are set to the user-defined default state. Each Node has a Gateway Link Failure flag
that can be set or cleared depending on the particular application.
Host System
Node 1
Gateway
Node 2
In the sample system shown, the communication link between the Gateway and Node 1 has failed. Node 2 must have its
Gateway Link Failure flag set to allow any outputs linked to Node 1 to be set to the defined default state when the
communication link between Node 1 and the Gateway fails.
44
www.bannerengineering.com - Tel: 763.544.3164
Sure Cross® Performance DX80 Wireless I/O Networks
5.8.3 Node Link Failure
A Node Link Failure is determined by the polling interval/rate or the out-of-sync timing.
When a Node detects a communications failure with the Gateway and the Node Link Failure flag is set, the output points
are set to the user-defined states and the inputs are frozen. When output points are set to their default states because of
an error condition, only the Gateway can clear the error condition and resume normal operation. The front panel buttons
or the Gateway’s register I/O 15 clear error conditions.
Clearing a lost radio link error does not restore communications. Banner recommends determining and resolving the cause
of the radio link error, then allowing the system to auto-recover the lost communications.
Polling Interval. The global polling interval defines the time interval during which the Node should expect a polling
request from the Gateway.
Out of Sync. An out of sync condition is met when a Node fails to receive the Gateway’s beacon within a factory-set time
period, about 10 seconds. Both the out of sync and polling interval conditions are used to detect a failure because the
Node can remain in sync with the Gateway but be unable to transmit data. If the Gateway drops out of the network, the
Nodes detects the out of sync condition long before the polling interval expires.
5.9 Units Defined
The units parameter defines the range and/or type of data value associated with an input or output.
Selecting Units from within any configuration tool changes the units definition of several parameters, including threshold,
hysteresis, and delta. For example, if the units are 0 to 20 mA, the threshold, hysteresis, and delta values are entered as
milliampere values. Selecting Temp °C changes the threshold, hysteresis, and delta units to degrees Celsius.
Signed values range from −32768 to +32767 and allow for the measurement of negative values. Signed values are
typically used for measuring temperatures. Signed values are stored as two's complement values.
Unsigned values range from 0 to 65535 and are used to measure values that do not go below zero, such as 4 to 20 mA,
distance, or a counter.

5.9.3 Interpreting Register Values in the Banner Wireless System
The units conversion table defines the type and range of values for each type of I/O.
The wireless devices have many different units of measure for inputs including: milliamp (mA), voltage (V), temperature
(°C or °F), humidity (RH), or a raw 16-bit or 32-bit value. Outputs can be either current (4 to 20 mA, 0 to 20 mA) or
voltage (0 to 10 V dc). All values stored in Modbus registers are unsigned numbers, except for temperature readings. The
temperature readings are stored as signed numbers (two's complement).

Temperature Measurements:
• In high resolution mode, the temperature = (Modbus register value) ÷ 20. For high resolution temperature input, 0
in the register is interpreted as 0° and 65535 in the register (0xFFFF) is interpreted as −1 ÷ 20 = −0.05°.
• In low resolution mode, the temperature is (Modbus register value) ÷ 2. For low resolution temperature input, 0 in
the register is interpreted as 0° and 65535 in the register (0xFFFF) is interpreted as −1 ÷ 2 = −0.5°. The I/O
range values are –16383 through 16384.
When using a 4 to 20 mA sensor with a 0 to 20 mA input, the sensor uses the 4 to 20 mA section of the total range. Using
a 4 to 20 mA with a 0 to 20 mA input allows you to determine when you have an error condition with the sensor. A normal
input reading between 4 and 20 mA indicates a functioning sensor whereas a value below 4 mA indicates an error
condition, such as a broken wire or loose connection. Some Sure Cross devices allow you to configure the analog inputs
and outputs to use either 0 to 20 mA or 4 to 20 mA.
Signed Numbers
Temperature values are stored in Modbus registers as two's complement signed numbers. Using two's complement allows
negative numbers to be stored in Modbus registers. Although not technically a sign bit, the most significant bit (MSB)
indicates a negative number when the value is set to one (1). When the most significant bit is zero (0), the value is
greater than or equal to zero.
Modbus register values of 32768 through 65535 (decimal) represent negative temperatures. These numbers in binary form
are: 1000 0000 0000 0000 through 1111 1111 1111 1111.
To convert to a negative temperature value from a Modbus register value, first convert the value from the two's
complement number. To convert from a two's complement number in binary form, invert all the bits (0 changes to 1, 1
changes to a 0), then add 1. Convert this binary value to a decimal value and divide by either 20 (high resolution mode) or
2 (low resolution mode) to calculate the negative temperature.

Mapping Units Types
Using signed or unsigned value types allows the user to generically map any input to any output. The signed and unsigned
values read the null and span parameters to create the linear translation between one scale and another. The output type
is set to mA or V.
Output = (Fullscale/Span)(InputValue − Null) + Offset

Fullscale. Defined in the table; the output range.
Span. The total range of values mapped to the output.
Null. The starting point for the output scale.
Input Value. The value mapped to the output.
Offset. Defined in the table; the starting output value.
Example: Temperature Map
Map a temperature input from a Node to a 4 to 20 mA output. The starting temperature is −20 °F and the last
temperature will be 50 °F (4 mA = −20 °F, 20 mA = 50 °F). This defines the null as −20 °F and the span as 70.
With an input temperature value of −5 °F, the output value will be:
Output = (Fullscale ÷ Span)(InValue − Null) + Offset
(Fullscale ÷ Span) = 16 ÷ 70 = 0.22857
(Value − Null ) = −5 − (−20) = 15
Offset = 4
Output = 0.22857 × 15 + 4 = 7.42 mA
Example: Distance Map
Map a distance input from a Node to a 0 to 10 V output. The starting distance is 200 mm and the last distance will be 2000
mm (4 mA = 200 mm and 20 mA = 2000 mm). This defines the null as 200 and the span as 1800.
With an input distance reading of 1560 mm, the output value will be:
Output = (Fullscale ÷ Span)(InValue − Null) + Offset
(Fullscale ÷ Span) = 10 ÷ 1800 = 0.00555
(Value − Null ) = 1560 − 200 = 1360
Offset = 0
Output = 0.00555 × 1360 + 0 = 7.54 V
Alarm Conditions. The standard alarm conditions are as follows:
Unsigned Alarm = 0xFFFF
Signed Alarm = 0x7FFF
If special alarm conditions are needed, consult the factory for details.
5.10 Setting up the Wireless Network Using the Rotary Dials
Follow these steps to set up your wireless network using the rotary dials instead of using extended addressing mode.
Banner recommends using Extended Addressing Mode, but some older products may only recognize Rotary Dial Address
Mode.
5.10.1 Rotary Dial Address Mode
Rotary dial address mode uses the left dial to set the Network ID and the right dial to set the Device Address (device ID).
The wireless RF network is defined by the Network ID (NID) assigned to the Gateway and its Nodes. Each device within
this common network must have a unique Device Address assigned.
48
www.bannerengineering.com - Tel: 763.544.3164
Sure Cross® Performance DX80 Wireless I/O Networks
For factory configured kits, the Network ID and Device Addresses have been assigned. Otherwise, use the rotary dials
(shown below) to define both the NID and Device Address for each device.
To operate more than 15 Nodes in your wireless network, use Extended Address Mode and device binding instead of
Rotary Dial Address Mode.
1. Network ID (NID)
2. Device Address
5.10.2 Setting the Network ID Using the Rotary Dials
The wireless network is defined by the Network ID (NID) assigned to the Gateway and its Nodes.
Each device within this common network must have a unique Device Address assigned. When using Rotary Dial Address
Mode, set the Network ID on the Gateway and all its Nodes using the left rotary dial.
1. Remove rotary dial access covers. Turn counterclockwise to remove and clockwise to tighten.
2. On the Gateway, set the left rotary dial to 1. The factory default NID setting on all devices is 1.
3. On all Nodes within the same network, set the left rotary dial to 1. Assign the same NID to all devices within a single
network (hexadecimal 0-F).
When more than one network is operating in the same space, assign a unique Network ID to each network.
5.10.3 Setting the Device Address Using the Rotary Dials
The Device ID establishes a unique identifier for each device within a wireless network.
1. On the Gateway, set the right rotary dial to 0.
A device address of 0 on the Gateway displays settings for the Gateway itself. To view settings for another device on
the network, adjust the right rotary dial on the Gateway to the desired device address.
2. On the first Node (device address = 1), set the right rotary dial to 1. Do not change the Device ID for pre-configured
kits as this would affect the factory mapping of the I/O.
3. On the second Node (device address = 2), set the right rotary dial to 2.
4. Continue setting the device address for each additional Node using a unique number (...3,4,5).
After setting both the Network ID and Device Address for all devices, re-install the rotary dial access covers, referring to
the Installation section for IP67 instructions. A successful radio link is identified by a blinking green LED 1 on each Node.
5.10.4 Setting Up Channel Search Mode
A Gateway runs Channel Search Mode on power up or when the Gateway’s Network ID is changed.
Before beginning, apply power to the Gateway.
After Channel Search Mode begins, the Gateway determines if its assigned Network ID is available for use or is already in
use by another radio network. For example, if a Gateway powers up set to Network ID 2, Channel Search Mode begins
running as shown below.
1. Apply power to the Gateway and set the rotary dial to a Network ID number (shown here as Network ID 2).
Channel Search Mode begins running, and LED 1 is solid red and LED 2 is flashing amber. The LCD displays START
CHANNL SEARCH MODE. The test takes one minute to complete and counts down from 60 seconds. The LCD shows
SEARCH NID 2 1M 0S. If the Network ID is not already in use, the LCD displays NID OK and enters RUN mode.
2. If the Network ID is already in use by another DX80 Gateway device, an IN USE message displays. Use the left rotary
dial to select another ID.
3. After selecting a new Network ID, click button two once to restart Channel Search Mode.
The screen cycles between displaying the current Network ID setting and a new NID setting until either the left rotary
dial is changed to another Network ID or the test is aborted. (LED 1 is solid red and LED 2 flashes red.) Once a new
Network ID is selected, Channel Search Mode begins again.
4. After entering RUN mode, the LCD display shows the current I/O status of the Gateway.
The Gateway and GatewayPro start in *RUN mode. The LCD shows the current Network ID (NID), identifies the device,
then beings cycling through the I/O points (GatewayPro has no I/O points).
To cancel Channel Search Mode, double-click button two. The word ABORT displays on the LCD and both LEDs are solid
red. The Gateway enters RUN mode, operating on the Network ID chosen.

7 Sensor Connections
The Sensor Connections guide lists most common Banner and non-Banner sensors and how to wire them to the DX80
devices.
This reference guide lists typical connections. If you have additional questions about a specific sensor or its connection
instructions, please contact Banner Engineering or the manufacturer of the sensor you are using.
Discrete Sensors. Neither the inputs nor the outputs on the DX80 devices are isolated. Under certain operating
conditions, externally powered sensors may need to have ground in common with the DX80 device to which they are
connected. The power sources do not have to be the same.
Analog Sensors. For analog sensors, the ground/dc common of the sensor should be connected to the ground of the
DX80 device. For best results, Banner recommends that the power source for the sensor and DX80 device is the same.

8 SureCross Power Solutions
The SureCross Power Solutions guide lists the various power options for SureCross devices. Also included in this guide is a
battery life calculation for some discrete and analog sensors, examples of solar power installations, and brief instructions
explaining how to measure your sensor's current draw and calculate the estimated battery life for your installation.
8.1 10 to 30 V dc Power
For locations with power, the 10 to 30 V dc devices offer an easy-to-install solution for sensing devices.
•
•
•
10 to 30 V dc can power more sensors and more types of sensors to obtain the necessary data.
The number of sensors powered by the SureCross device is only limited by the number of I/O points available.
The Node may be set to high-speed I/O sample and reporting rates for quicker data collection.
8.2 What is FlexPower®?
Banner’s FlexPower technology supplies a true wireless solution by allowing the device to operate using either 10 to 30 V
dc, 3.6 V lithium D cell batteries, or solar power. This unique power management system can operate a FlexPower Node
and an optimized sensing device for up to five years on a single lithium D cell.
• FlexPower Nodes may be powered from 10 to 30 V dc and use an external battery supply module to provide a
battery back-up solution.
• When a FlexPower Node receives 10 to 30 V dc, it operates like a standard 10 to 30 V dc Node.
• Good applications for FlexPower devices operating from batteries include sensors that require no or very little
power, including dry contacts, RTDs, and thermocouples.
The following FlexPower options are available:
•
•
•
•
DX81, a single battery supply module;
DX81P6, a 6-pack of lithium batteries;
DX81H, a single battery supply module designed specifically to power the DX99 Intrinsically Safe devices with
polycarbonate housings; and
BWA-SOLAR-001, a solar power assembly that includes the solar panel, rechargeable batteries, and solar power
controller.

BWA-SOLAR-001: Solar supply;
includes solar panel, rechargeable
batteries, and controller.
8.2.1 Switch Power (with FlexPower)
Efficient power management technology enables some FlexPower devices to include an internal power supply, called switch
power (SP), that briefly steps up to power sensors requiring 5, 10, or 15 V power (ideally, 4 to 20 mA loop-powered
sensors). When the switch power output cycles on, the voltage is boosted to the voltage needed to power the sensor for a
specific warmup time. This warmup time denotes how long the sensor must be powered before a reliable reading can be
taken. After the warmup time has passed, the input reads the sensor, then the switch power shuts off to prolong battery
life. The switch power voltage, warm-up time, and sample interval are configurable parameters.
•
•
64
To reduce power consumption and extend battery life, slower sample and reporting rates are used. Faster sample
and report rates can be configured, but this will decrease the battery’s life. For details, refer to the DIP switch
configurable parameters for your device.
The FlexPower switched power management system can operate a FlexPower Node and most sensing devices for
up to five years on a single lithium D cell.

8.2.2 FlexPower with Integrated Battery
Some FlexPower devices operate using a battery integrated into the housing.
These devices powered by integrated batteries:
•
•
Operate only from the battery and cannot use an external power supply, and
Are limited in the available I/O because of the limited connectivity.
8.2.3 FlexPower® Solar Supply
Banner’s FlexPower Solar Supply Assembly can supply power to two radio devices, including a FlexPower Node, a
FlexPower Gateway, or a data radio.
When used with a FlexPower Node and sensors, the FlexPower Solar
Assembly supplies enough power to run most sensors at higher
sample and report rates than a single battery can reasonably
support.
The solar panel recharges the battery pack that powers the devices.

Sample and Report Rates
For each sensor characterized, a boost voltage and warmup time was specified. The sample and reports rates were varied
to calculate the estimated battery life. For example, a Banner QT50ULBQ6-75390 sensor set to a boost voltage of 15 volts,
a warm-up time of 500 milliseconds, and a sample and report rate of 15 minutes, should have a battery life of 4.45 years.
All battery life calculations are approximations based on a strong radio signal. Weaker radio connections and missed
packets will decrease the battery life.

Sample and Report Rates
For each sensor characterized, a boost voltage and warmup time was specified. The sample and reports rates were varied
to calculate the estimated battery life. For example, a Banner Optical sensor, model SM312DQD-78419, set to a boost
voltage of 5 volts, a warm-up time of 4 milliseconds, and a sample and report rate of 16 seconds, should have a battery
life of just over 6 years.
The curves for discrete devices represent a “worst case” as far as battery use because we are assuming for each sample of
the sensor’s output a change in state has occurred (e.g., target present to target absent or vice versa), sending a radio
message from Node to Gateway. No messaging occurs unless there is a change to report. Actual battery life depends on
how many state changes actually occur.
All battery life calculations are approximations based on a strong radio signal. Weaker radio connections and missed
packets will decrease the battery life.
8.3.3 Temperature and Humidity Sensor

Sample and Report Rate (sec)
These values are estimated based on the current hardware and software configuration and are subject to change without
notice. Environmental conditions will also contribute to the battery’s lifespan. Current estimates are based on a battery
operating at room temperature. All battery life calculations are approximations based on a strong radio signal. Weaker
radio connections and missed packets will decrease the battery life.
8.3.4 Calculating Battery Life
To estimate the battery life for a sensor not included in our list, use the configuration and cable shown (Banner cable BWAHW-010) to measure the current draw of your system.
1. Connect the cable to the FlexPower Node and the battery supply module as shown below. The cable’s male end plugs
into the FlexPower Node and the female end plugs into the battery module.
2. Connect an averaging Fluke meter to the leads. Set the meter to read in amps, not milliamps.
3. Turn off the Node’s LCD panel by clicking button 2 five times.
4. Allow the meter to measure the operation for at least 10 times the length of the sample rate.
To estimate the battery life in hours:
Battery Life (in hours) = (16,000 mA Hr) ÷ (average
current in mA)
To estimate the battery life in years:
Battery Life (in years) = (16,000 mA Hr) ÷ [(average
current in mA)(8736 Hr per year)]

9 Maintenance
Follow these instructions to perform basic maintenance tasks.
9.1 Replacing the Main Body Gasket
Check the main body gasket every time a SureCross device is opened.
Replace the gasket when it is damaged, discolored, or showing signs of wear.
The gasket must be:
• Fully seated within its channel along the full length of the perimeter,
and
• Positioned straight within the channel with no twisting, stress, or
stretching.
9.2 Replacing the Rotary Dial Access Cover
Check the rotary dial access cover o-ring every time the access cover is removed.
Replace the o-ring when it is damaged, discolored, or showing signs of wear. The o-ring
should be:
• Seated firmly against the threads without stretching to fit or without bulging
loosely, and
• Pushed against the flanged cover.
When removing or closing the rotary dial access cover, manually twist the cover into
position. Do not allow cross-threading between the cover and the device's face. After the
cover is in place and manually tightened, use a small screwdriver (no longer than five
inches total length) as a lever to apply enough torque to bring the rotary dial access
cover even with the cover surface.
9.3 Battery Replacement
9.3.1 Replacing the Battery
When the FlexPower Supply Module is installed outdoors or in a high humidity environment, apply dielectric grease to the
battery terminals to prevent moisture and corrosion buildup.

Sure Cross® Performance DX80 Wireless I/O Networks
10 Troubleshooting
The following troubleshooting tips include some basic instructions for common problems.
10.1 Startup Problems
The following problems are associated with starting up your radios.
The radio won't wake up. While in storage mode, the radio does not operate. All Sure Cross® radios powered from an
integrated battery ship from the factory in storage mode to conserve the battery. To wake the device, press and hold
button 1 for 5 seconds. To put any FlexPower® or integrated battery Sure Cross radio into storage mode, press and hold
button 1 for 5 seconds. The radio is in storage mode when the LEDs stop blinking, but in some models, the LCD remains
on for an additional minute after the radio enters storage mode. After a device has entered storage mode, you must wait 1
minute before waking it.
The sensors are not powered. Many SureCross devices have several switch power outputs for powering sensors. Enable
the power supplies using the I/O point parameters for sensor supply #, supply output voltage, and warm-up time.
The radio seems only partially powered. If your ribbon cable has been unplugged from the radio board, verify the
ribbon cable is fully seated and that it has been plugged into all pins. It is possible to accidentally plug in the ribbon cable
and miss the top row of pins (shown). When the ribbon cable is plugged in incorrectly, the radio may partially power up,
but it will not be able to communicate to any sensors nor will it communicate with the wireless network.
The radio won't enter binding mode. If you did not disconnect the power before changing the DIP switch positions, you
must cycle power to the device. If you do not cycle power, the device does not register the DIP switch changes. For
devices with an integrated battery, cycle the power by removing the battery for one minute.
10.2 LED Message Codes
Solid or flashing LEDs mean different things depending on whether the device is a Gateway, GatewayPro, Node, or DX85
Remote I/O Modbus Slave.
LED 1
LED 2
Definition/Solution
Gateway, DX85: Power is on
Solid green
Node: Good radio communication link

Sure Cross® Performance DX80 Wireless I/O Networks
LED 1
LED 2
Definition/Solution
Gateway, DX85: Modbus communication error
For a Gateway system, a Modbus communications error indicates a bad
transmission or checksum error between the host and the Gateway device. For a
GatewayPro system, a Modbus communications error indicates a communications
problem internal to the GatewayPro. For a Gateway and Ethernet Bridge system, a
Modbus communication error indicates a communication problem between the
Gateway and the Ethernet Bridge.
Flashing red
Solutions:
1. The default communications settings for the RS485 port are: 1 start bit, 8
data bits, no parity, 1 stop bit, and 19.2k baud. The DX80 Gateway uses
Modbus RTU protocol for all communications. Supported Modbus function
codes are 3, 6, and 16.
2. Verify the DX80 model supports RS485 serial communications.
3. RS485 termination or biasing is not supplied on the Gateway and should
be provided externally to the DX80. (Termination is not required by the
Gateway, proper biasing of the serial lines is required.)
4. Bad connection or bad cable.
Node: No radio communication
There are two settings on every Node device used to synchronize to the Gateway
device:
Flashing red
•
•
The Node must be bound to the Gateway.
Each Node ID within that network must be set to a unique number.
Solutions:
1. If the Gateway and Node are less than two meters apart, device
communication may fail (radios may saturate). If the Gateway is less
than two meters from another Gateway, send and receive transmissions
between all devices the Gateways communicate with fails.
2. The Gateway and Node may be too far apart to achieve synchronization –
consult the factory for options.
3. Use a qualified antenna on both the Gateway and Node devices.
4. After any system parameter change, cycle the power to re-synchronize all
devices.
5. When a Node loses synchronization, it is programmed to attempt resynchronization for five seconds, then sleep for fifteen seconds.
Synchronizing may require up to twenty seconds.
6. Re-cycle power on the Gateway and Node devices.
Not blinking amber
GatewayPro: No Modbus communication
Solution:
1. The GatewayPro’s LED 2 should always be blinking amber to indicate
Modbus communication. If the LED 2 does not blink amber, verify the
baud rates, slave IDs, parity, and stop bits are set correctly.
2. Check the cables connecting the GatewayPro to the host device.
No LED 1
No LED 2
All DX80 devices display “POWER” on the LCD for the first five to ten seconds
after applying power. A DX80 Gateway always has a green LED 1 on when power
is connected. DX80 Node devices flash a red LED 2 every three seconds or a
green LED 1 every second depending on the RF Link status.
If no LEDs are lighting up:
1. Put battery powered devices into power-down mode by pressing and
holding button 1 for three to five seconds. To return from power-down
mode, press and hold button 1 for three to five seconds.
2. Recheck the power connections and power requirements. Batterypowered devices require 3.6–5.5V dc. Non-battery powered devices
require 10–30V dc.
3. After replacing the battery, allow up to sixty seconds for the device to
power up.
4. The GatewayPro cannot be attached to another Modbus master device or
a Modbus slave ID 1 via RS-485. Special configuration using the Web
page configuration tool allows the GatewayPro to become a slave unit
when necessary.

10.3 LCD Message Codes
These message codes display on the device's LCD.
Message
BAD EE
EC XX
Solution
System Error. A system error typically represents a failure of the EE PROM. Contact the factory for replacement.
The XX refers to the Modbus register 8 message code shown in Modbus Message Codes for Register 8 on page
78. The LCD displays the message code in decimal; host-controlled systems read the message codes in hex.
DX80 display shows *ERROR: The Gateway uses fully-acknowledged polling to ensure each Node radio link is
robust. If a prescribed number of sequential polling cycles are not acknowledged by a Node, the Gateway considers
the radio link with that Node to be timed out. All outputs on the Node in question are set to the user-selected
default state or the output holds its last state, depending on user configuration options set using the User
Configuration Tool. If the Node’s radio link recovers and the Gateway or GatewayPro determines enough
acknowledged polling messages have accumulated, the link is reinstated.
EC 53
Radio Device (polling/heartbeat) Timeout. (Decimal value 13569.) A Node dropped out of the wireless network
based on the parameters defined for polling or heartbeat. For more information, see Message Code 35 in Modbus
Message Codes for Register 8 on page 78.
EC 54
Modbus time-out. A Gateway timeout (time of inactivity on the serial channel) was detected. For more information,
see Message Code 36 in Modbus Message Codes for Register 8 on page 78.
No LCD
All DX80s display “POWER” on the LCD for the first 5 to 10 seconds after applying power. A Gateway's LED 1 is
solid green when power is connected. Nodes flash a red LED 2 every 3 seconds or a green LED 1 every second
depending on the radio link status.
• Battery-powered devices turn off the LCD after 15 minutes (factory default). Push any button to reactivate
the LCD. Battery-powered devices may be in storage mode. To put battery powered devices into storage
mode, hold button 1 for 5 seconds. To return from storage mode, hold button 1 for 5 seconds.
• Recheck the power connections and power requirements. Battery-powered devices require 3.6 to 5.5 V dc.
Non-battery powered devices require 10 to 30 V dc.
• After replacing the battery, allow up to sixty seconds for the device to power up.
10.3.1 Modbus Message Codes for Register 8
Register I/O 8 is reserved for device messages or Site Survey data when in Site Survey mode.
Conditions are detected as they occur and are reported to the Gateway. After the message is sent to the Gateway, the
Node does not resend the message until the condition changes or there is a higher priority message. The higher the
message code, the higher the priority. For more information about how Site Survey data is stored in registers 7 and 8,
refer to Conducting a Site Survey (Gateway and Nodes) on page 17.
The following are the Modbus message codes, shown in hex, that may appear on the SureCross devices' I/O 8 Modbus
register.
Message Code
[15:8]
Data Field [7:0]
00
80
Normal operation. Device message register contents 0x0080 indicate the Node is synchronized
to the Gateway. (Decimal value 128.) A value of zero (0) indicates there is no device present.
01
00-FF
Unknown message. The message was received correctly (correct checksum), but it is not a
recognized command. This type of message is usually caused by devices with poor radio links
or collocated networks that are not uniquely separated by binding codes and Network IDs.
Network performance is not affected. (Decimal values 256 through 511.)
35
01
Radio Device (polling/heartbeat) Timeout. (Decimal value 13569.) A Node dropped out of the
wireless network based on the polling or heartbeat parameters. Refer to the User Configuration
Tool documentation for polling or heartbeat parameters and the timeout operation. When the
least significant bit is on (1), an error condition exists.
• Run a site survey to determine the quality of the radio link. If no communication exists
between the Gateway and Node, verify the power at the Node and all antenna
connections. Blocked radio communications may also be a result of recently changed
environmental conditions.
• Replace the battery of a battery-powered Node. Although the LCD and device may
appear functional, the battery may not have enough capacity to handle radio
communication.
36
01
Modbus time-out. A Gateway timeout (inactivity on the serial channel) was detected. (Decimal
value 13825.) When the least significant bit is on (1), an error condition exists.
FE
--
Modbus register 8 device messages are disabled. The Modbus register 8 clears or disables
messages using the Gateway’s Modbus register 15. (Decimal values 65024 through 65279.)

10.4 Inputs and Outputs
Some inputs or outputs are not working.
Option 1. From the Node, access the menu system and use manual scrolling mode within *RUN to freeze the I/O status on
the LCD display for the device in question. Verify that when the input device changes state or changes value, the LCD
mirrors the behavior. If the Node is in a hazardous location, access the Node's I/O from the Gateway by changing the
Gateway's right rotary dial to the Node number in question. For example, to view the I/O status of Node 3, move the
Gateway's right rotary dial to 3. The Gateway's LCD now scrolls through Node 3's I/O. To freeze the display on a particular
I/O point, double-click button 2. The autoscrolling on the Gateway stops at the *RUN screen. Single-click button 1 to
advance through the Node's I/O points.
Option 2. Verify the LCD on the output side mirrors the linked input’s behavior. If the input device state LCD on the
origination DX80 and the LCD on the destination DX80 behave the same, there may be a wiring issue or an interfacing
problem. Consult the factory.
Option 3. Nodes will not sample inputs unless the Nodes are in sync with a Gateway. Verify your Node is in sync with its
Gateway.
10.5 Radio Link Time-Out and Recovery (Non-Host Connected
Systems)
The SureCross® wireless devices employ a deterministic link time-out method to address radio link interruption or failure.
When a specific Node/Gateway radio link fails, all pertinent wired outputs are de-energized until the link is recovered (see
component datasheet for more information.) Through this process, users of Banner wireless networks can be assured that
disruptions in the communications link result in predictable system behavior.
The link time-out feature uses a fully-acknowledged polling method to determine the radio link status of each Node on the
network.
If after a specified number of sequential polling cycles the Node does not acknowledge a message, the Gateway considers
the link with that Node timed out. The LCDs on both the Node and Gateway show *ERROR. Following a time-out, the Node
de-energizes outputs and the Gateway sets all outputs linked to the Node in question to a de-energized state. Inputs from
the Node mapped to outputs on the Gateway are suspended during a link time-out.
OUT 1 = 0
OUT 2 = 0
OUT 1 = 0
OUT 2 = 0
OUT 3 = Normal
OUT 4 = Normal

Figure 5. Radio link between the Gateway and Node 1 has timed out.
After a link has failed, the Gateway must receive a specified number of good data packets from the Node in question
before the link is reinstated. Outputs are restored to current values after the link recovers.

11.2 Selecting an Antenna
Select your antenna based on your specific application needs. There are three basic antenna solutions:
•
•
•
Use the supplied rubber duck antenna inside the enclosure. DX80 products come with a 2 dBi rubber duck
antenna. Often simply attaching the supplied antenna to the radio provides enough radio range to meet your
needs.
Mount a dome antenna to the enclosure. The -D antennas can be mounted directly on the enclosure.
Use an N-type pole-mounted antenna, with surge suppressor. The -A and -AS antennas can be mounted
remotely from the enclosure and require the BWC-LFNBMN-DC surge suppressor.

Euro-Style Cordsets - Single Ended
Right-angle cordsets are not compatible with the DX70 devices. When facing the Node or Gateway toward you and the
quick disconnect connection is facing down, the right-angle cables exit to the right.
When using the FlexPower Node with integrated battery, use a double ended cordset. For a FlexPower Node with external
power supply, use a single ended cordset. If using the communication lines, the cable length cannot exceed 3
meters, or 10 feet.
