Obsession Remote Consoles Jumpers and Dipswitch Guide

REMOTE CONSOLE-NODE PCB [4052B5014] 

Switches are either On (Closed) or Off (Open). 
The Remote Console does not use DIP switches 7 or 8. 
DIP switch 1 must be Off and 2 must be On or the Remote Console will not start.

Main DIP Switch Function (S1)

Factory Use Only Off (Open) Normal operation
Factory Use Only On (Closed) Normal operation
Factory Use Only Off (Open) Normal operation
Remote Console On (Closed) Enables Remote Console interface
through 8 Reserved Off (Open) Normal operation

Network Jumpers for Rev A PCB (J22) 
Locate jumpers 1 through 14.

BNC (Thin-Net) connections 
Install jumpers 1 through 6 
Jumpers 7 through 12 are not installed.

RJ45 (UTP-Twisted Pair) or DB15 (ThickNet) connections 
Install only jumpers 7 through 12 
Jumpers 1 through 6 are not installed. 
Jumper 14 should always be on. Jumper 13 must always be Off.

Network Jumpers for Rev 0 PCB (J22) 
Locate jumpers 1 through 14.

BNC (Thin-Net) connections 
Install jumpers 9 through 14 
Jumpers 3 through 8 are not installed.

RJ45 (UTP-Twisted Pair) or DB15 (ThickNet) connections 
Install only jumpers 3 through 8. 
Jumpers 9 through 14 are not installed. 
Jumper 1 must always be On. Jumper 2 must always be Off.

Checking Power Supply Voltage 
Verify that the Node Card is getting proper DC voltage by metering between TP1 and Com.  You should get 5.05vdc between these two points. If not adjust voltage at the power supply so that you get 5.05vdc between TP1 and Com.

DESIGNER'S REMOTE CONSOLE--NODE PCB [4052B5014] 

Switches are either On (Closed) or Off (Open).
