Product Code Numbers

FX-PCA4911 Advanced Application Programmable Controller.

Supply Voltage

24 VAC (nominal, 20 VAC minimum/30 VAC maximum), 50/60 Hz, power supply Class 2 (North America), Safety Extra-Low Voltage (SELV) (Europe)

Power Consumption

14 VA maximum

Note: The VA rating does not include any power supplied to the peripheral devices connected to binary outputs (BOs) or configurable outputs (COs), which can consume up to 12 VA for each BO or CO; for a possible total consumption of an additional 72 VA (maximum).

Power Source

+15 VDC power source terminals provide 100 mA total current. Quantity 3 located in Universal IN terminals - for active (3-wire) input devices.

Ambient Conditions

Operating: 0°C to 50°C (32°F to 122°F); 10% to 90% RH noncondensing

Storage: -40°C to 80°C (-40°F to 176°F); 5% to 95% RH noncondensing

Controller Addressing for BACnet MS/TP

DIP switch set; valid controller device addresses 4–127 (Device addresses 0–3 and 128–255 are reserved and not valid controller addresses.)

Controller Addressing for N2

DIP switch set; valid control device addresses 1-255

Communications Bus

RS-484 BACnet MS/TP

3-wire FC Bus between the supervisory controller and other controllers.

4-wire SA Bus between controller, network sensors, and other sensor/actuator devices, includes a lead to source 15 VDC supply power (from controller) to bus devices.


RX630 32-Bit Renesas® microcontroller


16 MB flash memory and 8 MB RAM

Real-Time Clock Backup Power Supply

Super capacitor maintains power to the onboard real-time clock for a minimum of 72 hours when supply power to the controller is disconnected.

SA/FC Bus and Supply Power: 4-Wire and 3-Wire Pluggable Screw Terminal Blocks

SA/FC Bus Port: RJ-12 6-Pin Modular Jacks


Fixed Screw Terminal Blocks

Horizontal on single 35 mm DIN rail mount (preferred), or screw mount on flat surface with three integral mounting clips on controller


Enclosure material: ABS and polycarbonate UL94 5VB; Self-extinguishing

Protection Class: IP20 (IEC529)

Dimensions (Height x Width x Depth)

Fixed Screw150 mm x 220 mm x 57.5 mm (5-7/8 in. x 8-3/4 in. x 2-3/8 in.) including terminals and mounting clips
Note: Mounting space requires an additional 50 mm (2 in.) space on top, bottom, and front face of controller for easy cover removal, ventilation, and wire terminations.
