The NetLinx NXC-ME260/64 Card supplies optimum control system performance. With the ability to respond 50 times faster than conventional control masters, the NXC-ME260/64 is propelled by the high-speed 257 MIPS ColdFire processor. The standard 32MB CompactFlash memory is expandable to 1G and beyond and Ethernet networking is built onboard. The NXC-ME260/64 also features enhanced Username and Password authentication, HTTPS and SSL certificate interaction, ICSP communication and encryption, and use of a pre-installed AMX SSL certificate.

Metal with black matte finish


  • Program port: DB9 (male) connector that supports RS-232 communications to your PC for system programming and diagnostics. You set the port’s commu nication speed with the Baud Rate DIP switch. There are Program ports located on the front and rear panels of the Master Card for easy access. Because these ports share the same circuitry, you should never use both at the same time; doing so will result in communication and/or programming errors
  • Status LED: Green LED blinks to indicate system and communication status
  • Output LED: Red LED blinks when the Master Card transmits data, sets channels on and off, sends data strings, etc
  • Input LED: Yellow LED blinks when the Master Card receives data from button pushes, strings, commands, channel levels, etc
  • Program Port DIP Switch 8-position DIP switch on the front of the card for setting the baud rate for the Program port


  • PWR connector: 2-pin (male) green captive-wire connector for 12 VDC power supply
  • EXPANSION OUT: port RJ-11 connector connects to an AXB-SPE Slave Port Expander
  • Ethernet 10/100 port: The (RJ-45) Ethernet Port default setting automatically negotiates the connection speed (10 Mbps or 100 Mbps) and whether to use half duplex or full duplex mode
  • Ethernet 10/100 LEDs: Display communication activity, connections, speeds, and mode information
  • AxLink connector Black 4-pin (male) captive-wire connector that provides data and power to external control devices. Power rating = 6 A max; actual load depends on connected power supply
  • AxLink Status LED: Green LED blinks to show AxLink and expansion port data activity
  • PROGRAM port: 5-pin (male) gray connector for system programming and diagnostics. There is a Program port located on the front and rear of the Master Cards for easy access. Because these ports share the same circuitry, you should never use both ports at the same time. Doing so will result in communication and/or programming errors
  • ICSNet connectors: Two RJ-45 connectors that provide power (500 mA) and data to external ICSNet devices
    - ICSNet LEDs - Indicate activity on that port.
  • ICSHub In/Out connectors: Two RJ-45 connectors that provide data to other Hubs connected to the Master Card
    - ICSHub IN/OUT LEDs - Indicate activity on that port

Heat Dissipation (Typical): 30.7 BTU/hr
