About this task

For complete details, refer to the specific mounting and wiring guide that shipped with the option card. Follow these basic steps:


  1. If a station is running, stop the station using the platform Application Director View.
  2. Remove power from the controller.
  3. Remove the optional battery and bracket assembly by taking out the four screws holding it in place. Set the screws aside for later. Unplug the battery from the connector on the FX30E/FX60E (if the battery is being used in addition to the integral SRAM for backup).
  4. Remove the blanking end plate for the slot into which you are installing the option card. Retain the blanking plate in case you need to remove the option card at a later time.
  5. Carefully insert the pins of the option card into the socket of the appropriate option card slot. The mounting holes on the option card should line up with the standoffs on the base unit. If they do not, the connector is not properly aligned. Press until the option card is completely seated.
  6. Place the custom end plate that came with the option card over the connector of the option card.
  7. Insert the battery connector plug into the battery connector on the FX30E/FX60E.
  8. Set the battery and bracket assembly back over the option card slots, with the mounting holes aligned with the standoffs.
  9. Place the four screws through the battery bracket, end plates, and into the standoffs on the FX30E/FX60E base unit. Hand-tighten these screws.
  10. Replace the cover.
  11. Restore power to the FX30E/FX60E.
