    When I purchased my EZIO8SA/PLM combo, the PLM was a 2414U. Is this the device you are still recommending today or have you changed to another device?

    thanks,

    The EZIO8SA never worked with any yyyyU USB PLM and never worked with either 2414U/S which is a PLC (very different from a PLM). The EZIO8SA requires a 2412S Serial PLM or EZIComm which is the functional equivalent to a 2412S Serial PLM.

    Lee; Can the 2413S Dual Band PLM be used if you add an external power supply to the EXIO8SA?
    Mine has a DC input connector on it.

    Maybe the size of the link database memory could make a difference?

    I think that will work but have only limited testing and that was back when the Dual Band was first released. All the basic PLM commands are the same so a Serial Dual Band looks like a Serial 2412 command wise. As you say an external power supply is needed. Of course the link database is smaller (not an issue for an individual device) and the start address is different. I would try a Set button link with one of the EZIO8SA Inputs as a Controller linked to almost any Responder. I don’t remember the EZIO8SA firmware having an issue with the different link database start address (just depends on the PLM commands issued) but that has been too long ago to be sure. If a Set button link works then I think everything else will (assuming application software will handle the different link database size and origin). With the advent of the EZICOMM I don’t believe SHN has needed to test that combination.

    Thanks for the information Lee.
    I may try it as a test. As my EZIO8SA’s are in storage.
    They are vintage and I never used the update purchase to get the latest. I even have the firmware rev 2.4 2412S PLM’s that where in the kit. 😆

    I do have a spare 2413S and can probably find a suitable external supply.
