The DX-ADPT- FAC4911 is sold as a preconfigured assembly with most wires already terminated in the correct replacement input/output (I/O) terminals on the FAC . Using the adapter has many advantages:
  • The adapter uses the existing base of the DX Controller, which does not require the footprint mounting location of the replacement FAC to be changed. The addition of a new panel to meet the physical requirements of the FAC4911 may also be avoided.
  • Field wiring should already be terminated to the base of the DX controller. Because the base is being reused and not removed from the panel, only minimal re-wiring needs to be done. The DX-ADPT- FAC4911 comes with most terminations pre-wired and ready to be assembled. Test sites determined that this feature alone could save several hours of labor for each controller field upgrade.
  • This field solution, where the DX Adapter is pre-wired to the FAC controller, reduces or eliminates the chance of wire termination errors.
