Product Line

Andover Continuum

Environment

  • HyperTerminal
  • CX9900
  • CX9940
  • CX9200
  • CX9400

Cause

First generation Continuum controllers do not support web page configuration and must be configured using a terminal emulation program such as HyperTerminal.

Resolution

  1. Configure HyperTerminal for 9600 baud (or baud that matches default baud configuration for the comm port), 8 data bits, no parity, no flow control.
  2. Connect cable to comm3 (or another port configured for autoset) on controller
    (for information on cable pinout please see Lessons Learned Article #4447)
  3. On the NetController make sure RS232 is selected, use the MODEM/RS232 override switch to de-select the modem if necessary.
  4. Run HyperTerminal and type "window" to have the controller display the log on window
  5. Default user/password is acc/acc
