Functional Devices Inc. Switching Smart Transceivers in LonMark RIBs from FT3120 to FT5000 12/1/2013

Functional Devices logo for thumbnailValued Customers. Functional Devices Inc. will be switching the Smart Transceiver in the LonMark RIB Devices below from FT3120 to FT5000 starting December 1, 2013. Devices that contain an override switch will now give the customer the ability to switch the output from N/O to N/C with an on-board jumper. The layout and connections have changed slightly, and FDI will included a new DI status LED (pink). The main advantage to customers will be the elimination of commissioning fees. Previously, using the FT3120, customers were required to pay a fee to commission each device on the network. Echelon has eliminated this commissioning fee requirement for devices utilizing the FT5000 Smart Transceiver.
