What is the process to replace a CX9400 with a CX9680 NC2?
- Upgrading a CX9200, CX9400 Eclipse, CX9900, CX9940 to a NCII Netcontroller. CMX9924.
- Model Number, Type change.
Where can I get the process to upgrade my obsolete CX controller.
Cyberstation V1.74 SP2 or above is required to support the upgrading process of a CX9200, CX9900 and CX9940 up to a Netcontroller 2.
The upgrade process for this is detailed in Appendix B or the NetController II Operating and Technical Reference Guide.
For the CX9400 Eclipse controller they require a minimum of V1.91 to support the upgrade.
For the older versions of Cyberstation that do not support direct upgrading of a model number, you will need to bring the Netcontroller II on line as a new controller, then in offline editing copy /paste (or Drag /Drop) all objects over to the Netcontroller II. Then go online and fully reload the Netcontroller II and any connected Infinet controllers. The old controller can then be deleted from the system.
The objects could also be copied over using edited ASCII dump files if you prefer that method, but either way you may still have to re-animate your Pinpoint graphics unless you upgrade to a version that supports the Netcontroller II replacement.
ACC-LON RS-485 and ACC-LON FTT-10A protocol options
A CX9900 may be labeled CPU-8M and a CX9940 labeled CPU-4M. Later CX99 models may have FT added, eg. CPU-8M-FT
When replacing a CX9900 or CX9940 it is vital to know if it requires an RS485 or FTT10 IOU module port (if this port is being used) as this CANNOT be modified on site. See article titled No response from I/O module when learning in an IOU
This process cannot be used to upgrade the CMX9924 controllers.
The available range of Netcontroller II controllers available has recently been reduced, see PA-00535 "Andover Continuum Offer Optimization"
