FX-PC controllers are encased in a durable, plenum-rated, plastic housing. The plastic housing may eliminate the need for a separate enclosure for plenum-rated construction. Check regional, national, and local code requirements for appropriate applications. FX-PC controllers feature bright, color-coded LEDs, visible on the controller cover, that indicate the supply power, communications bus, and EOL switch status, as well as a variety of fault conditions to aid troubleshooting the controller and bus.
An integral EOL switch on each MS/TP FX-PC controller allows you to enable the controller as a bus terminating device, which when properly configured, reduces reflected noise on the bus and improves bus communication.
Each MS/TP FX-PC controller has an easily accessible, eight-position DIP switch that allows you to set a valid and unique device address for each controller on the bus. A blank space is included on the controller cover for recording the device address.
The BACnet/IP field controllers feature rotary switches to give each controller a unique number on the subnet where it resides, to identify it in CCT for uploading, downloading, and commissioning.
FX-PC controllers feature removable, color-coded, keyed, and labelled terminal block plugs for the supply power and communications bus terminations. Most models have fixed, color-coded, and labelled terminal blocks for the input and output terminations, which facilitate installing and servicing the controllers.
The I/O terminations on the FX-PCV models are spade lugs. Pluggable screw terminal blocks that connect to the I/O spade terminations are also available as optional accessories.FX-PCA2612 models have removable, color-coded, and labelled terminal block plugs for the I/O terminations.
On FX-PCG, FX-PCA and FX-PCX Series Controllers, integral mounting clips and a DIN rail track on the controller back-plate allow you to easily mount the controller either on a horizontal section of 35 mm DIN rail or directly to a wall or flat vertical surface.Some FX-PCG models have a backlit user interface display with adjustable brightness and contrast to ensure readability in low-light environments. The easy-to-use display provides convenient local monitoring and adjusting of key setpoints and control parameters. For the FX-PCG and FX-PCA models without a display, a stand-alone FX-DIS1710 Local Controller Display module is available that connects directly to the SA Bus port. For details, refer to the FX-DIS Local Controller Display Product Bulletin (LIT-12011667).
