We have already introduced you the new IP system of Fermax, called LYNX. A complete IP-Based system which allows to get all the possible features required for any special high-profile project, mainly due to a good electronic design as well as a good looking aesthetic and thanks to the capabilities provided by the advanced IP Technology available nowadays.

We have already introduced you the new IP system of Fermax, called LYNX. A complete IP-Based system which allows to get all the possible features required for any special high-profile project, mainly due to a good electronic design as well as a good looking aesthetic and thanks to the capabilities provided by the advanced IP Technology available nowadays.

Between the Lynx devices we can find standard references like VIVO monitor, City and Skyline panels,…Additionally to these standard references, and following the same philosophy like in other Fermax systems, you can order customized Marine panels that present the recognizable vandal-proof stainless steel frontal. Between the Marine panel line, the button panels are pretty common.

Remember that the buttons of the Marine panel are purely a mechanical contact that will be used to transmit a signal understandable by the IP amplifier of the panel to transmit the digital address to be called. That conversion is done by the call extension pack, Ref.2441 until 16 buttons and Ref.2008 until 8 buttons. Several of these packs can be connected in cascade in case that higher quantity of buttons is necessary. The main target of this article is to show you how to connect and configure these call extension packs. Following considerations:

  • In order to detect the total quantity of packs and addresses, connect a jumper at the last call extension pack, between pins 4 and 5 of the “NEXT” connector (The 2 right ones). Note that the assignation of buttons is reverse, this means that in a 2441 call extension pack, the line “16” will be calling to the monitor number “1”. See below picture.
  • The call extension pack will be connected to the IP amplifier at the connector with serigraphy “KEYPAD”. Note that this connector has 6 vias, but the call extension pack connector has only 5 vias. It has to be connected to the left first 5 pins of the “KEYPAD” connector. See picture.
  • To detect the number of buttons the call extension packs have to be connected to the amplifier before supplying the system. In case that later you wish to modify the number of buttons (adding or removing call extension packs), you can reset the web server IP amplifier from any web browser (Please, be referred to Lynx presentation).

 

On the other hand, in order to assign each button to a wished monitor address, these steps have to be followed:

  1. Access via a computer web browser into the web server embedded in the IP amplifier (Default IP address 10.200.0.0).
  2. Introduce User/Password: admin/admin.
  3. At the setting screen, select “Panel settings”. The number of buttons will be displayed according to the quantity of call extension packs connected.

  1. Assign the wished monitor address to each button (For example Push Button #1   Apartment 0001). See pictures.

              

We trust that you found useful and interesting the described procedure and that you will enjoy the employment of Lynx devices.
