Ethernet Ports used by the NI Controller
Ethernet Port Usage
RS-232 DB9 connector (male) can be connected to a DB9 port on a PC.
This port can be used with both Serial and NetLinx commands.
Port type
Description
8-position DIP switch sets the communication parameters for the Program
port.
FTP
The on-board Master has a built-in FTP server.
21/20 (TCP)
SSH
The SSH port functions using the same interface as Telnet but
over a secure shell where it uses SSL as a mechanism to
configure and diagnose a NetLinx system.
Note: SSH version 2 (only) is supported.
22 (TCP)
Standard Port #
IR RX LED (red):
Lights when IR data is being received via the rear IR RX port.
IR LED (red):
Lights during the transmission of IR or Serial data via the rear IR port.
I/O LEDs (yellow):
Light when the rear I/O channels 1 - 4 are active. LED indicator for each
I/O port reflects the state of that particular port.
Telnet
The NetLinx Telnet server provides a mechanism to configure
and diagnose a NetLinx system.
23 (TCP)
SERIAL LEDs
(red and yellow):
Light when the rear DB9 Ports (1 & 2) transmit or receive RS-232, 422, or
485 data.
Note: These LEDs do not reflect changes in either the RTS or CTS when
hardware handshaking is used.
HTTP
80 (TCP)
MASTER LEDs
• LINK/ACT (green): Lights when the Ethernet cable is connected and an
active link is established. This LED also blinks when receiving Ethernet
data packets.
• Status (green): Lights when the Controller is programmed and
communicating properly.
• Output (red): Lights when the Controller transmits data, sets channels
On and Off, sends data strings, etc.
• Input (yellow): Lights when the Controller receives data from button
pushes, strings, commands, channel levels, etc.
The Master has a built-in web server that complies with the
HTTP 1.0 specification and supports all of the required
features of HTTP v1.1. This port is used for unsecure HTTP
Internet communication between the web browser’s UI and the
target Master.
HTTPS/SSL
This port is used by a web browser to securely communicate
between the web server UI and the target Master.
443 (TCP)
ICSP
Peer-to-peer protocol used for both Master-to-Master and
Master-to-device communications.
1319 (UDP/TCP)
integration!
Solutions
This feature on the Master uses, by default, port 10500 for the
XML based communication protocol.
This port is connected to by the client web browser’s JVM
when integration! Solutions control pages are retrieved from
the on-board Master’s web server.
10500 (TCP)
ID Pushbutton:
Sets the NetLinx ID (Device only) assignment for the device.
Rear Panel Components
Note: While the NI-700 is capable of receiving 8 and 9 bit characters, it cannot receive 7 bit, 1 stop
bit data from a serial device (ex: 9600,N,7,1).
PORT 1 /2:
Two RS-232/422/485 control ports use DB9 (male) connectors with XON/
XOFF (transmit On/transmit Off), CTS/RTS (clear to send/ready to send),
and 300 - 115,200 baud.
IR RX (Port 5):
4-pin 3.5 mm port connects up to 8 IRX-SM+ swivel mount or IRX-DM+
Decora mount IR receivers.
Note: The IR RX port functions using AMX IR codes (38 KHz and 455
KHz) and works ONLY with AMX IR Receivers such as the IRX-DM+ and
IRX-SM+.
•
I/O (Port 4):
4-channel digital I/O port for contact closure with each input being capable
of voltage sensing. Input format is software selectable with interactive
power sensing for IR ports.
Note: The I/Os are not dry closure; they are electronic switches that float
at 5V when Off. Therefore, they should not be expected to work in
situations that require true dry contact (or dry closure). The I/Os do work
with AMX PC1, PC2, UPC20 and UPC20+.

RACK MOUNT SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
•
•
•
If installed in a closed or multi-unit rack assembly, the operating ambient temperature of the
rack environment may be greater than room ambient. Therefore, consideration should be
given to installing the equipment in an environment compatible with the maximum ambient
temperature 50°C.
Installation of the equipment in a rack should be such that the amount of air flow required for
safe operation of the equipment is not compromised.
Mounting of the equipment in the rack should be such that a hazardous condition is not
achieved due to uneven mechanical loading.
Consideration should be given to the connection of the equipment to the supply circuit and the
effect that overloading of the circuits might have on over current protection and supply wiring.
Reliable earthing of rack-mounted equipment should be maintained. Particular attention
should be given to supply connections other than direct connections to the branch circuit (e.g.
use of power strips).
Installing into an Equipment Rack
Program Port Baud Rate Settings
Use the optional AC-RK Accessory Rack Kit (FG515) to mount the Controller into a standard 19"
equipment rack.
1.
Discharge the static electricity from your body by touching a grounded object.
2.
Align the front of the NI-700 through any of the three rectangular openings on the AC-RK.
3.
Use the included mounting screws to secure the unit’s faceplate to the AC-RK.
4.
Thread the cables through the opening in the equipment rack. Allow for enough slack in the
cables to accommodate for movement during the installation process.
5.
Reconnect all cables to their appropriate source/terminal locations. Verify that the terminal
end of the power cable is not connected to the a power supply before plugging in the 2-pin
power connector.
6.
Align the ends of the AC-RK with the screw openings along the sides of the equipment rack.
7.
Secure the AC-RK to the rack by using the four #10-32 screws (80-0186) and four #10
washers (80-0342) supplied in the kit.
8.
Apply power to the unit to complete the installation process.
The Configuration DIP switch is located on the front panel. Use this DIP switch to set the baud rate
for the Program Port, according to the settings shown in the following table. Make sure the baud rate
you set matches the baud rate on your PC's NetLinx COM Settings before programming the unit.
By default, the baud rate is set to 38,400 (bps).
Note: DIP switch 1 activates/deactivates the Program Run Disable Mode. DIP Switches 2,3, and 4
must remain OFF at all times.
Connections and Wiring
Use a 12 VDC-compliant power supply to provide power to the NI-700 through the rear 2-pin 3.5 mm
mini-Phoenix connector.
The incoming PWR and GND cable from the power supply must be connected to their corresponding
locations within the PWR connector. Refer to the NetLinx Integrated Controllers Instruction Manual
for more detailed wiring connection information.

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

FIG. 3 Layout of Ethernet LEDs
Note: On NetLinx Masters (such as those aboard the NI-700), from within the Telnet or Terminal
applications; you can send the SET ETHERNET MODE command to assign the speed of your
Ethernet connection.
Sample NI-700 command:
SET ETHERNET MODE AUTO
The NI-700 only allows you to set the Ethernet mode to AUTO negotiate the Ethernet connection
speed. Using any of the other connection modes (10 Half/Full or 100 Half/Full) results in an error
message.
Disconnect the power supply from the rear 2-pin PWR (green) connector.
Set DIP switch positions according to the information listed in the previous Baud Rate
Settings table.
Reapply power to the unit.
Preparing the NI-700 for Serial Communication
1.
FIG. 2 shows the pinout and wiring specification information for the rear RS-232/422/485 (DB9)
Device Ports (PORT 1 /2). These ports support most standard RS-232 communication protocols for
