ICSLan Device Control Boxes
Overview
The EXB family of ICSLan Device Control Boxes (FIG. 1) provides Ethernet-based remote port expansion for NetLinx Central
Controllers. ICSLan Device Control Boxes may be used to provide remote ports for a master (eliminating the need to implement
another Central Controller), or to provide large numbers of ports in a rack-mount environment.

ID Pushbutton:
The ID Pushbutton serves four functions:
• ID Mode: Used in conjunction with the ID Mode feature in NetLinx Studio, a momentary push assigns a
device address to the Module. See the Using "Identify Mode" to Set the Device Address on the EXB
Modules section on page 17 for details.
• Static/DHCP: If the button is pressed and held for 10 seconds or longer and then released, the unit
toggles between static and dynamic IP addressing. See the Toggling Between Static and DHCP IP
Addressing section on page 18 for details.
• Factory Reset: If the ID button is held for 10 seconds or longer during the boot process, the unit will
reset to factory defaults. See the Performing a Factory Reset section on page 18 for details.
• Factory Image: If the ID pushbutton is held for 20 seconds and released while the Module is booting up,
the Module will restore itself to a factory firmware image. See the Resetting the Unit to the Factory
Default Firmware Image section on page 18 for details.
Status LED:
The green Status LED indicates unit status.
See the Detailed LED Behavior section on page 10 for details.
L/A LED:
The green L/A (Link / Active) LED indicates communication status.
See the Detailed LED Behavior section on page 10 for details.

The Ethernet Port LEDs show communication activity, connection status, speeds, and mode information:
SPD
(speed) - Yellow LED lights On when the connection speed is 100 Mbps and turns Off when the speed is 10 Mbps.
L/A
(link/activity) - Green LED lights On when the Ethernet cables are connected and terminated correctly, and blinks when
receiving Ethernet data packets.
Detailed LED Behavior
The table below provides detailed descriptions of all blink patterns for the Status and A/L LEDs on the front panels of all EXB
Modules.
The
I/O LED column refers to port-specific Input and/or Output LEDs on a particular model. For example, I/O includes all
serial TX and RX LEDs on a COM2 or all Relay output LEDs on a REL8.
The
term “Light Show” refers to the back-and-forth scanning pattern of the LEDs associated with the I/Os on each model.

Network Configuration
Network Conf iguration
Overview
EXB modules support two IP addressing modes: Static IP, and DHCP (with link-local fallback).
NOTE: "Link-Local Fallback" is a method by which an IP host can derive a local network-unique IP address, by negotiating with the
other IP hosts on the same network, as a fallback from DHCP. Link-Local can also be used in its own right as the primary method of IP
address allocation. See "DHCP Mode" below for details.
By default, EXB Modules are set to DHCP Mode.
The modules can be configured for either of these modes via two methods:
The
front-panel ID Pushbutton (see the Toggling Between Static and DHCP IP Addressing on page 18).
Telnet
command (see the Appendix A: Terminal (Telnet) Commands on page 46).
Default Parameters For Static IP Mode
Default Parameters For Static IP Mode
Address:
192.168.1.2
Netmask:
255.255.255.0
Gateway:
192.168.1.1
DNS1:
192.168.1.1
DNS2:
192.168.1.1
DNS3:
192.168.1.1
DHCP Mode
When in DHCP mode (the default setting), the module will attempt to get a DHCP lease (consisting of IP address, gateway, and other
network parameters). Should it fail to obtain a lease from a DHCP server, it will then configure itself for a link-local address.
EXB
modules utilize a modified link-local addressing procedure: the first address to be tried is a known address in the linklocal space: 169.254.2.2. That address will be probed, and if unclaimed will be used by the EXB module.
If
169.254.2.2 is already claimed, the EXB module will choose a random address within the 169.252.x.x link-local address
space (again probing to ensure that it is unclaimed).
Once operating with a link-local address, the device will periodically re-try DHCP, and re-assign the IP to a valid DHCP grant if
successful.
At any time, if the device determines that its IP address has changed, it will disconnect from the Master (if necessary, depending on
the connection state), and then reconnect to the Master.
TCP/IP Address Conf iguration
EXB modules support IPV4 network addresses, gateway addresses, DNS server addresses, and network name. EXB modules support
NetLinx Discovery Protocol (NDP) capabilities as well as IP discovery via NetLinx Studio.
NOTE: NDP stands for "NetLinx Discovery Protocol", a device discovery method used by NetLinx Masters. With NDP Beacon enabled,
the Master will transmit NDP beacons for AMX's proprietary device discovery.
Telnet IP Conf iguration Commands
The SET IP (page 51) and GET IP (page 49) Telnet commands listed in the following table can be sent directly to the device via a
Telnet terminal session. These commands can be used for initial network configuration of the EXB Modules.
The
default Telnet port is 23. A value of 0 disables the telnet server.
Telnet
See
is enabled by default.

Network Configuration
Master Connection Modes
The mode of communication used for connection to the Master is specified via the SET CONNECTION Telnet command (see
page 49).
The options are “AUTO”, “URLTCP”, “URLUDP” or “NDP”, as described below.
Note that default connection mode setting is NDP.
AUTO
- This mode utilizes TCP communication; it looks for a matching System Number and attempts to come online with
the first master it sees with that System Number.
URLTCP
- TCP; the Master is specified via URL.
URLUDP
- UDP; the Master is specified via URL.
NDP
- UDP; this mode utilizes the NDP binding process to assign the EXB Module (the physical device) to a Master via
NetLinx Studio. Once bound, communications are conducted via UDP.
NOTE: In URL modes, the Master can use either an IP address or a DNS name.
TCP vs. UDP
TCP
- Protocol has built-in retry mechanism.
UDP
- Protocol does not have a built-in retry mechanism, but consumes fewer resources on the Master. AMX’s UDP
implementation of NetLinx employs a retry mechanism to provide the reliability of TCP, with the resource efficiency of UDP.
URL vs. NDP vs. Auto
Determining which connection method to use for Master Connection Mode is essentially a matter of deciding what information the
device should use to identify the correct target Master for connection.
The default mode is NDP; the mode can be changed via the SET CONNECTION Telnet command (see page 49).
URL
- The device connects to the Master with the specified URL. The device must be configured with the URL of a specific
Master via the SET CONNECTION Telnet command (see page 49).
NDP
- The device connects to the Master it's been bound to based on the Masters MAC address. The binding is configured
via NetLinx Studio. Once bound, the device must be unbound using either NetLinx Studio or the Telnet NDP UNBIND
command before being re-bound to a different Master.
Alternatively, NDP devices can be bound/unbound via options on the Master’s Web Configuration pages (System > Manage
NetLinx). Refer to the NetLinx Integrated Controllers- WebConsole & Programming Guide (System - Manage NetLinx section)
for details.
Auto
- The device connects to the first Master it finds with the specified System Number. The device must be configured
with the desired system number via the SET CONNECTION Telnet command (see page 49).
Use of this method requires that only one Master has any particular system number, and is visible to the subnet. If this is
the case, then Auto is the most simple choice. However, with Auto, you are not hard-bound to a particular Master.
Therefore, if at some point in the future, another Master is configured with the same system number, the result is that the
EXB Module could show up on that other Master.

Using the ID Pushbutton
Use the ID Pushbutton (on the front panel of all EXB Modules) to perform various initial configuration settings, as described in the
following sections. The ID Pushbutton provides several functions, depending on when and for how long the pushbutton is pressed
and held:
Momentary
press: If the device is in ID mode, a momentary press causes the module to identify itself to the system. Note
that a momentary press at any other time is ignored.
See the Using "Identify Mode" to Set the Device Address on the EXB Modules section (below) for details.
10-Second Press and Hold (during
runtime): If the ID Pushbutton is held for 10 seconds or longer and then released during
runtime (i.e., after boot completes), the unit will toggle between Static IP and DHCP Mode IP addressing - after the button
is released.
Note that after applying the new setting, the module will automatically reboot.
By default, EXB Modules are set to DHCP Mode (with link-local fallback).
See the Toggling Between Static and DHCP IP Addressing section on page 18 for details.
10-Second
Press and Hold (during boot-up): If the ID Pushbutton is held for 10 seconds or longer at boot, the module will
reset to factory default parameters and reboot after release.
Press and hold the ID Pushbutton while plugging in the Ethernet / PoE connector. Begin counting only when the LEDs begin
to flash (as opposed to the moment that the connector is inserted).
Note that once the module has started booting up, all LEDs flash in unison at the rate of once per second. After 10 flashes
at this rate, the LEDs will flash in unison at a faster rate. At the point that the blink rate increases (approximately 10
seconds after boot-up), release the pushbutton.
See the Performing a Factory Reset section on page 18 for details.
20-Second
Press and Hold (during boot-up): If the ID Pushbutton is held for 20 seconds or longer at boot, the module will
reset to the factory default firmware image and reboot after release.
Press and hold the ID Pushbutton while plugging in the Ethernet / PoE connector. Begin counting only when the LEDs begin
to flash (as opposed to the moment that the connector is inserted).
Note that once the module has started booting up, all LEDs flash in unison at the rate of once per second. After 10 flashes
at this rate, the LEDs will blink in unison at a faster rate. After 10 seconds of flashing at the increased rate, all LEDs go to
solid on. At the point that the LEDs go to solid on (approximately 20 seconds after boot-up), release the pushbutton.
See the Resetting the Unit to the Factory Default Firmware Image section on page 18 for details.
Using "Identify Mode" to Set the Device Address on the EXB Modules
The ID Pushbutton on the front panel of all ICSLan Device Control Boxes is used in conjunction with the NetLinx Studio software
application (“Identify Mode” function). Once the EXB Module has been added to a NetLinx System, you can use the ID pushbutton to
identify and assign a device address to the Module.

Network Configuration
Once a device has been identified, it will be set (or changed to) the Device/System Address specified.
NOTE: If the target Master has security applied, NetLinx Studio will prompt you for a User Name and Password in order to change
these settings.
3.
In the ID Mode section of the dialog, enter the Device and System numbers that you want to assign to the Module, in the
(Change to Device) Device and System text boxes.
NOTE: NetLinx Studio (v3.3 or higher) provides the ability to auto-increment IP Addresses and Hostnames as well as Device and
System Numbers. Refer to the NetLinx Studio online help for details.
4.
5.
Click the Start Identify Mode button to place the named System in ID Mode. The text box below this button displays a
Waiting…Press Cancel to Quit message. The Start Identify Mode button changes to Cancel Identify Mode (click to cancel ID
Mode).
Press the ID button on the EXB Module. This causes the Module to:
Respond
with an identify mode address response
Report
its old address offline
Report
its new address online
The Online Device Tree will refresh to represent the new device address.
Toggling Between Static and DHCP IP Addressing
EXB modules support both Static IP and DHCP addresses, and have a factory default Static IP Address that can be recalled at any
time by resetting the unit to its default configuration.
By default, EXB Modules are set to use DHCP (with link-local fallback).
Once the Module has booted up, press and hold the ID pushbutton for at least 10 seconds, and release.
The
Module will toggle between static and dynamic IP addressing after release.
The
Module will automatically reboot to complete the process.
NOTE: EXB Modules can also be set to Static IP or DHCP Mode via the SET IP Telnet command (page 51). See the Appendix A:
Terminal (Telnet) Commands section on page 46 for details.
Performing a Factory Reset
1.
Press and hold the ID Pushbutton while plugging in the Ethernet / PoE connector. Begin counting only when the LEDs begin to
flash (as opposed to the moment that the connector is inserted).
NOTE: A press-and-hold of the ID Pushbutton at boot will prevent the Module from attempting to come online until the pushbutton is
released. The Module will only attempt to come online if the hold time is less than 10 seconds.
Note that once the module has started booting up, all LEDs flash in unison at the rate of once per second. After 10 flashes at
this rate, the LEDs will flash in unison at a faster rate.
2.
At the point that the blink rate increases (approximately 10 seconds after boot-up), release the pushbutton.
3.
The Module will automatically reboot to complete the process.
NOTE: When switching from Dynamic to Static IP using this method, the static IP address is set to the factory default IP Address,
regardless of other static IP addresses that may have been set previously.
Resetting the Unit to the Factory Default Firmware Image
1.
Press and hold the ID Pushbutton while plugging in the Ethernet / PoE connector. Begin counting only when the LEDs begin to
flash (as opposed to the moment that the connector is inserted).
Note that once the module has started booting up, all LEDs flash in unison at the rate of once per second. After 10 flashes at
this rate, the LEDs will blink in unison at a faster rate.
After 10 seconds of flashing at the increased rate, all LEDs go to solid on.
2.
3.
At the point that the LEDs go to solid on (approximately 20 seconds after boot-up), release the pushbutton.
The Module will restore itself to a factory firmware image by performing the following actions:
Copy the boot code from the factory image to the boot block in flash memory.
b. Mark the boot parameter block in flash memory to indicate that the unit should boot from slot#0 (the factory application
code slot).
c. Delete the application and boot code in flash memory slots #1 and #2.
d. Delete the IRL files stored on the Module.
a.
While the button is held at boot (for at least 11 seconds), all LEDs on the Module continue to fast-blink.
4.
Once all writes to flash memory are completed, the LEDs will all be extinguished, indicating that the unit is ready to reboot.
5.
The Module will automatically reboot to complete the process.

NOTE: Although a high signal is def ined as 3.3 – 5 VDC, this port can handle up to 12V without harm.
NOTE: The maximum baud rate for ports using DATA mode is 9600. Also, DATA mode works best when using a short cable length (<10
feet).
Input Linking
The EXB-IRS4 has 4 IR-Tx ports (labelled "IR/SERIAL") and 4 associated input pins. Each of the 4 input pins is directly associated
with one IR-Tx port. Port #1 is associated with input pin #1 and so on.
Any of the 4 IR-Tx ports/pins on an EXB-IRS4 can be run in either “unlinked” or “linked” mode:
Unlinked Mode (Default)
Unlinked mode is the default mode at boot up. When an IR/SERIAL port is unlinked the input pin state has no effect on the IR-Tx
port.
Linked Mode
Linked mode is intended to provide the function of a “light switch” for the power state of a television via the EXB-IRS4’s IR
interface.
When a port is linked, the power state (on/off) of the TV is sensed via the input pin and factored into the logic of whether or not to
send power on/off IR pulses out the port to the TV. In this way, even a TV with a simple power toggle IR code can be reliably turned
on and off by the EXB-IRS4.
When in linked mode, the IR/SERIAL port is in one of 3 mutually exclusive states: POD, PON or POF (see the IO-Linked Modes table
on page 28).
Input Pin
The firmware on the EXB-IRS4 senses the high/low state of the pin and always reports that state to the master via PUSH/RELEASE
messages on ports 1-4 channel 255. This behavior persists regardless of whether the pin is linked or unlinked.
Entering/Exiting Linked Mode
Linked mode is entered by sending the “SET INPUT LINK” command (see page 42) to a specific [D:P:S].
The EXB-IRS4 firmware will accept a port number from 1 to 4 and will enable linked mode on that port.

All POD (page 39), PON (page 40), POF (page 39) messages are ignored
No IR activity due to pin state
POD
(default linked state)
In POD state, the PON/POF behavior is disabled and the state of the input pin is not used to trigger the sending
of power on/off pulses. This is the default state of a linked port upon receiving the “SET INPUT LINK” command.
• Exited by PON (page 40), POF (page 39), or SET INPUT LINK 0 (page 42)
• LEDs reflect the power state of the 4 input pins
• Channel 255 reports the power state of the 4 input pins on their linked port#(s)
• PON, POF messages are applied
• No IR activity due to pin state
PON
In the PON state, the IR/SERIAL port is used to keep the TV powered on.
When in PON state, if the TV is sensed via the input pin to be off, power-on pulses are sent out the IR/SERIAL
port until the TV is sensed to be on.
• Exited by POD (page 39), POF (page 39), or SET INPUT LINK 0 (page 42)
• LEDs reflect the power state of the 4 input pins
• Channel 255 reports the power state of the 4 input pins on their linked port#(s)
• POD, POF messages are applied
• IR activity to maintain power ON pin state
NOTE: When an IR/SERIAL port is linked and in PON state, the time delay set by the PTON Send Command
(see page 40) is used for power pulses sent out the port.
POF
In the POF state, the IR/SERIAL port is used to keep the TV powered off.
When in POF state, if the TV is sensed via the input pin to be on, power-off pulses are sent out the IR/SERIAL
port until the TV is sensed to be off.
• Exited by PON (page 40), POD (page 39), or SET INPUT LINK 0 (page 42)
• LEDs reflect the power state of the 4 input pins
• Channel 255 reports the power state of the 4 input pins on their linked port#(s)
• POD, PON messages are applied
• IR activity to maintain power OFF pin state
NOTE: When an IR/SERIAL port is linked and in POF state, the time delay set by the PTOF Send Command
(see page 40) is used for power pulses sent out the port.

NetLinx Send Commands
SEND_STRING Escape Sequences
The EXB-COM2 and EXB-MP1 support several special SEND_STRING escape sequences. If any of the character combinations listed
below are found anywhere within a SEND_STRING program instruction, they will be treated as a command and not the literal
characters.
Use the ESCSEQON and ESCSEQOFF NetLinx SEND_COMMANDS to control whether these are active or not. The ESCSEQON
command must be precede the Escape Sequences, otherwise the strings will be processed normally.

Appendix A: Terminal (Telnet) Commands
Overview
Telnet terminal communication can be accessed remotely via TCP/IP.
Establishing a Terminal Connection via Telnet
1.
In your Windows task bar, go to Start > Run to open the Run dialog.
2.
Type cmd in the Open field and click OK to open an instance of the Windows command interpreter - "Cmd.exe" (FIG. 11):
FIG. 11 Windows command interpreter (Cmd.exe)
3.
Type "telnet" followed by a space and the EXB Module’s IP Address info:
4.
Press <Enter>.
>telnet XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX
Without
a Telnet password set, a session will begin with a welcome banner similar to the following:
Welcome to EXB-COM2 v1.0.44 Copyright AMX LLC 2011
>
If
a Telnet password is set, then user credentials are required:
Enter username:
Enter protected password:
Welcome to EXB-COM2 v1.0.44 Copyright AMX LLC 2011
>
Telnet Username and Password
There are two Telnet commands that set the Telnet username and password:
Set
Telnet Username (see page 51)
Set
Telnet Password (see page 51)
By default, both the username and password are blank (empty string). Performing a factory reset on the device will return these
values to that default. See the Performing a Factory Reset section on page 18 for details.
Setting
the Username will have no effect if the password remains blank (empty string). That is, defining the username alone
will not result in Telnet prompting for user login.
Setting
the Password will cause Telnet to prompt for user login, whether the username has been defined or not. If the
username has been defined, this value must be entered.
However, since the password can be set independently of the username, it's possible to have a password defined, but the
username still at its default (blank, empty string).
In this case, do not enter anything for the username when prompted. Simply press <Enter>, which will then present the
password prompt. Here, the defined password must be entered, in order to successfully open the Telnet session.
Additional Notes
Both
the Telnet username and password are case-sensitive.
Three
consecutive, unsuccessful attempts to log in to Telnet will cause the Telnet window to close. Re-launching Telnet will
again present the login prompt, with a fresh "batch" of login attempts.
If
Telnet login fails because of an incorrect username, you will receive the "Invalid Password" message (as opposed to an
"Invalid Username" message).

Notes on Specif ic Telnet Clients
Telnet and terminal clients will have different behaviors in some situations. This section states some of the known anomalies.
Windows Client Programs
Anomalies occur when using a Windows™ client if you are not typing standard ASCII characters (i.e. using the keypad and the ALT
key to enter decimal codes). Most programs will allow you to enter specific decimal codes by holding ALT and using keypad
numbers.
For example, hold ALT, hit the keypad 1, then hit keypad 0, then release ALT. The standard line feed code is entered (decimal 10).
Windows will perform an ANSI to OEM conversion on some codes entered this way because of the way Windows handles languages
and code pages.
The following codes are known to be altered, but others may be affected depending on the computer's setup.
Characters
15, 21, 22, and any characters above 127.
This affects both Windows Telnet and Terminal programs.
Linux Telnet Client
The Linux Telnet client has three anomalies that are known at this time:
A
null (\00) character is sent after a carriage return.
If
an ALT 255 is entered, two 255 characters are sent (per the Telnet RAFT).
If
the code to go back to command mode is entered (ALT 29 which is ^]), the character is not sent, but Telnet command
mode is entered.
Enabling / Disabling Telnet on EXB Modules
By default, Telnet is enabled on all EXB Modules. The default Telnet port is 23.
The Telnet port can be changed via the SET TELNET PORT command (see page 51). Setting the Telnet port to zero will disable
Telnet access.
The SET TELNET PORT command requires a reboot to enable new settings.
NOTE: The only way to re-enable Telnet once it has been disabled is to reset the unit to the factory default f irmware image. See the
Resetting the Unit to the Factory Default Firmware Image section on page 18 for details.

Appendix B: Upgrading Firmware
Firmware Upgrades
All of the ICSLan Device Control Boxes share a common firmware (*.kit) file. The latest firmware for the ICSLan Device Control
Boxes is available to download from www.amx.com, in the form of a ZIP file.
This ZIP file contains the firmware (*.kit) file that can be loaded on all EXB units, as well as release notes and any relevant
programming instructions.
Downloading the Latest Firmware from www.amx.com
1.
To download firmware files, go to the online catalog page for any EXB unit.
2.
Click the link under "Firmware Files" on the right side of the page (FIG. 12), and save the ZIP file to a known location:
FIG. 12 www.amx.com - example "Firmware Files" link on an ICSLan Device Control Box catalog page
NOTE: Note that the size of the ZIP f ile as well as the version number of the f irmware is provided beneath the link.
Upgrading Firmware via NetLinx Studio
ICSLan Device Control Boxes use an Ethernet connection for programming and firmware updates via NetLinx Studio. If you have
access to the EXB unit’s network, you may transfer files to the EXB unit (via the NetLinx Central Controller) using NetLinx Studio.
NOTE: Refer to NetLinx Studio’s online help, or the NetLinx Studio Instruction Manual for instructions on using NetLinx Studio.
These instructions assume that the EXB unit is connected to the Central Controller, and you know its device address.
Identifying the Current Firmware Version of the EXB Unit
In NetLinx Studio, open the OnLine Tree tab (in the Workspace Bar), and click Display and select Refresh System from the context
menu. This establishes a new connection to the System and populates the device tree with devices on that system. An example is
shown in FIG. 13:
FIG. 13 NetLinx Studio - Online Tree, indicating an EXB-COM2
The
Device Number of each connected device is indicated before the device’s name. For example, the EXB-COM2 shown in
FIG. 13 is device 11001.
The current firmware version is indicated in parenthesis after the product name (see v1.0.49 in FIG. 13).
