Product Description: The Innotech Genesis II Digital Controller is a state of the art digital processing system capable of controlling various types of commercial systems. It is the central unit of the Genesis II System hardware, and can be tailored to specific applications with the Genesis II software and a wide range of Remote Expansion Modules (REMS). This combination of hardware and software can be used to monitor plants and equipment, data logging and analysis, data transfer, and troubleshooting. The Genesis II Controller can operate as a standalone device, while more complex installations can use multiple controllers sharing data between controllers and a computer.
Product Application(s): The Genesis II Controller is designed for mounting inside a control panel and offers a large array of inputs and outputs to monitor and control all types of external plant and equipment. The Genesis II Controller is ideal for air conditioning and building automation, but yet flexible and powerful enough to suit a wide range of other applications. The creation of control strategies is made simple with the Gen2Config configuration software. With it's powerful Graphical User Interface (GUI), Gen2Config allows the user to create an entire control strategy in block diagram form. Typical applications include: • Air conditioning and heating systems • Lighting control • Time clock controller • Monitoring device • Distributed I/O points controller • Cold/Freezer rooms
Point Quantity Characteristics
Analog Input (AI): 0
Digital Input (DI): 8 Opto isolated inputs; 24V AC/DC ±15% Trigger Signal

Additional Information
* Items in NV memory are not lost upon power or battery failure. Other types of NV memory such as EPROM, NOVROM, etc. do not directly impact system performance.
Can trend data be stored in this controller? Yes
How many total trend values can be stored? Data logging can be assigned to hardware and software points, with the ability to store up to 1.2 million interval based readings in non-volatile flash RAM.
What is the controllers role in trending? Communication, storage.
Can controller be programmed to 'push' data to archive or are trends 'pulled' from controller? Trends are 'pulled' from controller.
When full, does controller automatically send up trend data, overwrite data, or stop logging data? New readings replace the oldest readings.
