Cause

To use the digital input cards (DPC-3-1 & DPC-3-2) with MicroZone II controller, it required a custom application file.

Resolution

The MicroZone II controller supports two digital input cards:  DPC-3-1 & DPC-3-2.

A custom application file (1-DPC3.MZ2) is required to properly read the digital input card. In the MicroZone/PEM Conference, review technical bulletin TB01-26 for more details.
