Note: Terminology may differ by AC manufacturer but "Master/Slave" is synonymous with "Header/Follower".
- Intesis AC Interfaces with remote control bus connection
What effect does the Master/Slave setting have on an Intesis AC Interface?
On the remote control bus connecting to the AC, the Intesis unit can be configured as master or slave but you can only have one master.
As the master, the Intesis unit will have control of the AC. As a slave, the Intesis unit will only be able to read data. If a remote controller is in use, it will typically be a master and therefore have exclusive control of the AC. As a slave (if possible), the remote controller will not have the ability to directly control the AC.
Please review the individual manuals of the AC, remote controller, or Intesis unit for more specific details on functionality.
