- How can the TAC Xenta OP be used with a TAC Xenta 100-series controller?
- How can the TAC Xenta OP know which TAC Xenta 100 controller it is communicating with?
- Which OP mode should be used?
- Xenta OP
- Xenta 101
- Xenta 102
- Xenta 121
- Xenta 122
The TAC Xenta OP panel can be used to connect to a TAC Xenta 100-series controller to access input and output signals. Identifying the TAC Xenta 100 controller to configure is accomplished with a Service Pin message.
If connecting directly to a TAC Xenta 100-series controller, or to a STR100-series device connected to the TAC Xenta 100-series controller, the controller sends out a Service Pin messages automatically, If this is not the case, or you connect on another location on the network, you could manually press Service Pin on the TAC Xenta 100-controller you want to connect to.
For troubleshooting connectivity to a Xenta programmable controller, see "No Answer" on an OP when connecting to a Xenta 280/300/400.
