The S88 Device ID to use for 'Start of Day'.
This ID is also the reported bus value.

Modules

The number of connected 16 port S88 modules.


LinkS88

Starting with revision 15.073, this setup is no longer needed; Its detected automatically.

An entry in the list is needed for each connected LinkS88 device.
Check the CS3 System setup for ID and number of connected modules.


Options

Acknowledge sensor events

This option only has effect in case the GC2a is used for sensor detecting.
It will only acknowledge the high state of sensor events.
Turn this option off in all other cases.


Addressing

Switch/Output

An example for CS2/3 switch address 11:

Type Address Port Calculation
MADA 3 4 (3-1)*4+(4-1)=11
PADA - 123) 12-1=11
