Xenta I/O modules cannot be on a different channel from the base unit

Issue

Need to use a Xenta I/O module on another channel from the base device

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

  • Xenta I/O Modules
  • Xenta Programmable Controllers
  • LON Channels

Cause

Using traditional I/O modules you are not allowed to span channels when placing your base unit and I/O modules.

Resolution

Use the 421A/422A or 451A/452A models. You can span channels by using SNVT based communication rather then Xenta group communication. You will be required to bind the values to the base unit.

See Lessons Learned Article #4350 for more information on configuring the Xenta I/O modules for stand alone operation.
