NXP-CPI16 (price: 221,00 €, VAT excluded)


The NetLinx Custom Panel Interface provides a direct ICSNet connection to custom control panels. It's pin-for-pin compatible with devices that were designed for use with the AXP-CPI16 card (designed for integration with an Axcess Control System). Two 20-pin headers provide ribbon cable wiring or direct-connect insertion to circuit boards, providing inputs for up to 16 closures and 16 feedback outputs for LEDs. Under software control, the LED outputs can act as drivers to 8-segment bargraphs or as discrete outputs for feedback. In addition, the NXC-CPI16 also includes two quadrature inputs for mechanical or optical rotary encoders, used to control variable levels such as volume and lights, or lens focus and zoom.

The NXP-CPI16 is a versatile, useful device for both custom panel and contact-closure applications.


  • Integrates custom panels with 16 closure inputs and 16 LED outputs; pin-for-pin compatible with panels designed for AXP-CPI16
  • Operates as a low-cost closure interface
  • Acts as a driver for up to two 8-segment LED bargraphs; each bargraph uses eight of the 16 LED outputs
  • Allows precision digital control of up to two levels from quadrature inputs
  • Accepts mechanical or optical rotary encoders
  • Offers programmable level response, provides software-driven performance adjustment and switchable coarse/fine level control
