I would just like to verify that the Inputs 1-4 are ON when NO current is flowing through the Opto Isolators? That is how the manual seems to read and what the EXIOxx Utility shows on my unit.
I take it this also means; if we want to do a snapshot of preset outputs; we have to turn all 4 Inputs OFF by passing current through all four?
My thinking is this is reverse logic as I would think current flow woaud be an ON condition. 😕simplehomeMemberFebruary 28, 2007 at 4:17 amPost count: 256
Sorry for the confusion. Everyone is right and we are wrong! With the introduction of the ‘2X4, firmware (version 1.4 and above) was harmonized across all the EZIO units to implement reverse logic and make it easier to accommodate contact closures. The opto-isolated inputs, when current flows through them should now indicate an ON by the setup utility. The non-isolated inputs in all units should also indicate ON when grounded (as in a contact closure being closed accross each one of them.) We made this decision with a long-term view, hoping better satisfaction by all users.
Our policy is to have your complete satisfaction. Therefore, we offer free firmware upgrades if you return the unit to us with proof of purchase. We’ll promptly return it a our expense.
Version 1.4 also includes OFF timers on the inputs and a more intuitive linking scheme that does not require the inputs to be ON when linking as a master.BLHMemberFebruary 28, 2007 at 9:43 pmPost count: 192
Thank you for the reply.
The firmware in question is in the EZIO8SA?
My replaccement PLM is 2.4 from Smarthome.paulnMemberMarch 2, 2007 at 1:44 amPost count: 408
That is correct. The firmware in question is in the EZIO8SA. Your replacement PLM has the correct firmware version.BLHMemberMarch 2, 2007 at 11:55 amPost count: 192
Thank you. Any special marking I shoud put on the package when I return it for the firmware update?paulnMemberMarch 2, 2007 at 7:55 pmPost count: 408DaveMemberApril 6, 2007 at 7:05 pmPost count: 7
I’m thinking that this might be included under this topic. question, is there a way to create a macro that would activate DO1 opon power being applied accross DI1. any help on how to do this would be appreicated. also where would this macro reside.paulnMemberApril 7, 2007 at 12:55 amPost count: 408
One way to do it is to assign the EZIO module to a group number. Then, you can create a trigger in the EZIO module from the input to tell that group to turn on an output.
If you reference the utility software, you can see how to create the logic. If you have specific questions, feel free to post them or send us an email. In regards to where the macro resides, it is within the EZIO module, no need to have a PC or a controller operate.
Another way to do more complex behaviors is to look at the EZBridge, which can take that input, and issue different outputs to other IO modules and even X10 modules.DaveMemberApril 9, 2007 at 5:20 pmPost count: 7
thank you pauln for your reply. you mentioned ” If you reference the utility software, you can see how to create the logic.” if you could point me in the right direction to find this sort of reference it would be quite helpfull. I’ve been tring to find instructions and reference for the ezioxx software utility.
