    Help re: Interactive with MI-> Illumination (h8p5) without MI

    Hello,I'm replacing an old Interactive HWI-PM-120 processor with internal MI to a bit newer Illumination H8P5 processor *without* MI. My plan is simply to repurpose the internal MI card (address 0) on the old chassis via Link 1 and cont. from there to additional 7 MI's.I converted the config mdb into illumination's hdf via the Lutron Illumination 1.67 software, and updated the new processor panel and addresses accordingly.However, everything works well except for the first MI (address 0, which I repurposed). I also tried changing its address from 0 to 8, setting the config accordingly, without any effect.As far as I can tell the last MI is *not* terminated (e.g. using the L1T terminators) as recommended by Lutron, though this is also how it worked flawlessly on the old processor.Thank you

    Thank you for your post tiger

    You would need to get a new external MI in this application. We would not be able to reuse the internal MI card. Once a new external MI is put in place to address 0 should resolve your issues.

    Thank you very much! It's quite surprising given the fact that the internal module looks identical to the external ones, but as you suggested has a different configuration which can only be used as a processor integral module.
