IS2000: Mercury: Global Input to Output Linking Lockdown

In order to configure Global Input to Output Linking, you must create a text file in notepad and place it within the Remotepath with the following filename: “ControlPoint<Driver ID>.ini”

The contents of the file should contain the Monitor Point that triggers the relay as the section header in brackets, followed by the relay command properties:

[Monitor Point Address]
Command= 1==off, 2==on, 3==single pulse, or 4==relay(s) follow state of input (for ACP/inBIO controllers)
Address= Control Point Address to link to when the Monitor Point goes active
ON_Time= used for command 3 or 4
OFF_Time= used for command 4 only with Mercury
Repeat_Count= used for command 4 only with Mercury

Example
Below is a sample ControlPoint2.ini file.  The 2 in the filename represents that this file will be used by driver 2.  The example below will momentarily activate control point 2.3.6.O12 for 5 seconds anytime monitor point 2.0.4.I6 goes active.  Notice that these 2 points are on different controllers.

[2.0.4.I6] Command=3
Address=2.3.6.O12
ON_Time=5
OFF_Time=0
Repeat_Count=0

 

Multi-Relay Example
To activate multiple relays from a single input point, simply index the Address property with a numeric ID.  Please note that the numeric IDs must be continuous order without gaps:

[2.0.4.I6] Command=3
Address=2.3.6.O12
ON_Time=5
OFF_Time=0
Repeat_Count=0
Address1=2.3.6.O13
Address2=2.3.6.O14
Address3=2.3.6.O15
Address4=2.3.6.O16

The example above will pulse relays (12 – 16) for 5 seconds when input 6 goes active.
