CMX/2- 30198

Control Module

The Chemetron Fire Systems CMX-2 Control Mod-
ule is used with the Micro 200-I, 300-I, & 400-I
Control Panels to provide a single Notification Ap-
pliance Circuit (NAC) or Form-C relay.

P Built-in type identification automatically identifies
this device as a CMX-2 to the control panel.
P Internal circuitry and relay powered directly by 2-
wire SLC loop. NAC configuration uses second CMX-2 Control Module
loop for notification appliance power.
P Integral LED blinks each time a communication is
received from the control panel (optional feature
available with the Micro 200-I, 300-I, & 400-I.)
P High noise immunity (EMF/RFI).
P May be used to switch 24 volt NAC power, Audio
(up to 70.7 VRMS) or telephone.
P Wide viewing angle of LED.
P SEMS screws with clamping plates for wiring
P Direct dial entry of decade address (01-99).
P Built-in magnetic test switch.
P Speaker, audible/visual, and telephone applica-
tions may use wire Style Y or Z.

P Face Plate made of LEXAN with off-white color. Face Plate

P Controls include two rotary switches for Direct

Dial entry of DECADE Address (01-99).
P As shipped, configured for a single Style Y (Class
B) or Style Z (Class A) Notification Appliance
P Used to switch 24 VDC audible/visual power, high
level audio (speakers), or telephone devices.
P May be modified in the field to provide a single
Form-C (SPDT) dry contact. P May be programmed to operate dry contacts for
door holders, air handling unit shutdown, etc., and
to reset 4-wire smoke detector power.
