Installation
Installation
Configuring Switches
Setting the Device DIP Switch
Use the eight-position device DIP switch to set the AXP-AI8 as an AXlink device. It can be one of
255 devices in an Axcess system. The device number must match the assignment of the device in
the Axcess program. Set the device number with the total of all ON (down) positions. For example,
the DIP switch below defines device number 129 (1+128=129).
Switch 1 2 3 4 5
Value
6
7
8
1 2 4 8 16 32 64 128
ON
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
AMX standard device numbers are assigned as follows:
Cards are 1 through 95.
Boxes are 96 through 127.
Panels are 128 through 255.
The device number takes effect only on power-up. If you later change the device number, remove
and reconnect the AXlink connector. This enters the new device number into memory.
Setting the input SIP switch
Set the SIP switch positions to ON (down) to disable the corresponding unused inputs. For
example, switch position 1 corresponds to input 1. In the illustration above, switches 1 and 8 are
ON, designating that input 1 and 8 are disabled.
The default setting is all switch positions set to off, enabling all inputs.
Setting the joystick range POTs
Most applications will use the factory default setting of the POTs and do not require any
adjustment. In applications where the input signal is not powered by the AXP-AI8 board and the
maximum input voltage range is less than 5 Volts, the output reading may be adjusted closer to full
scale, providing greater resolution.
Determine the maximum voltage that will be input to the board. Make sure that the 'LO' POT
(bottom right of board) (FIG. 3) is turned all of the way to counter-clockwise. Place the leads from
a voltmeter across the 'HI' and 'LO' reference test points located on the right side of the board and
adjust the 'HI' POT (bottom right of board) (FIG. 3) until the voltage on the meter matches the
maximum that will be input.

Installation
Be sure that the board input ground is connected to the voltage source ground prior
to applying a voltage to the input.

AXlink
To install the AXlink data/power bus wiring:
1. Strip .25 inch off the wire insulation for all four wires. If the wire is 20 AWG or less, fold the
exposed wire over to obtain a positive connection.
2. Insert each wire into the appropriate opening on the connector. See FIG. 4.
3. Turn the captive screws clockwise to secure the fit. Do not over torque the screw; doing so can
bend the seating pin and damage the connector.
FIG. 5 shows the wiring configuration for AXlink cables.

Configuring the AXP-AI8
1. Set the device number.
2. Turn off any unused inputs.
3. Create a wiring diagram using the AXP-AI8 System Worksheet on page 7.
4. Connect the ribbon cable or the PC board to 20-pin header.
5. Connect the AXP-AI8 to the AXlink data/power bus.
6. Check the AXlink LED. It should blink once per second.
Testing
1. If you have programmed the Axcess software, load the program into a PC connected to the
control system Master port.
2. Select Diagnostics and Watch Variable; enter the name of the variable for Input 1.
Note the value of the variable when the joystick is in the center position.
Note the value of the variable when the joystick is at full right and left (or down and up)
position.
3. Adjust the programming to reflect the actual values for the three positions.
Using this method, you have the option of using the HI and LO adjustments to achieve a full
0-5 VDC range, 2.5 V center, or to adjust the Axcess programming to the actual values sent from
the AXP-AI8 inputs.

Send_Commands
SEND COMMAND AI8,"'DELTA5'"
Puts channel 5 in delta mode.
SEND COMMAND AI8,"'DELTA6'"
Puts channel 6 in delta mode.
SEND COMMAND AI8,"'DELTA7'"
Puts channel 7 in delta mode.
SEND COMMAND AI8,"'DELTA5 ON'"
Puts channel 5 in delta mode.
SEND COMMAND AI8,"'DELTA6 ON'"
Puts channel 6 in delta mode.
SEND COMMAND AI8,"'DELTA7 ON'"
Puts channel 7 in delta mode.
SEND COMMAND AI8,"'DELTA5 OFF'" Takes channel 5 out of delta mode.
SEND COMMAND AI8,"'DELTA6 OFF'" Takes channel 6 out of delta mode.
SEND COMMAND AI8,"'DELTA7 OFF'" Takes channel 7 out of delta mode.
Delta mode should be used with continuous rotation potentiometers. It effectively
filters out the dead zones and provides for smooth, uninterrupted readings.
Inputs are controlled as Channels 1 through 8.
