  • Disassembling, improper installations or bad connections may invalidate the warranty. Please contact Technical Support if you suspect a faulty or defective component.

  • CEX will always produce heat as a by-product of its operation. Keep in mind an adequate heat dissipation on installation.

  • RS-485 has internal termination resistor.
