The external terminals on the base of DX-9100 makes it about 2 inches taller but about one inch narrower than the FAC3613. Replacement in the same enclosure space may be possible when not using all of the I/Os on the DX. Special consideration is required for DX-9100 Series controllers that mount on the face of an enclosure. You may need to find a retrofit solution such as using a new panel enclosure.

Value
N2 Compatible: enables field-conversion to N2 from MS/TP with the use of the Controller Configuration Tool (CCT). The controller can then be converted back to MS/TP at a future date.

Consider that the onboard I/O count for an FAC3613 is slightly less than a DX-9100. As a result, you may need to add an M4-XPM or IOM Expansion I/O Module even if the old installation did not use XT/XP extension modules.

Installations that used one or more extension module sets may need extensive rearranging to accommodate the equivalent point count M4-XPMs or IOMs. Some space is regained as the XT communication module is removed.
