The Connect replaces the functionality of the EX cards. This reduces system costs and the need for additional card slots for expansion cards and multiple racks in controller cabinets.
The Connect connects to the EX port on the AccuSense Control or the CC card (for the AP240-S†). AccuSense Connect conforms to the Port 1 interface communications and indicator requirements specified in the NEMA TS2- 2003 standard. AccuSense Connect is powered through the 9-28VDC barrel connector or the USB port. The front panel display shows the channel status of the 64 channels arranged as four racks of 16 channels each. Racks can be independently enabled or disabled. TrafficDOT is used to configure the channels and download firmware updates.
