Server Module

SAS Server Module

The Server Module is the software gateway between the router and the other software modules. It runs on a Windows 7 or XP computer that connects directly to the router via RS232.


Router Control Software


The Connected Digital Network offers extensive user setup and control capabilities via the easy-to-use GUI-based Sierra Automated Systems Router Control and System Programming Software.

Via the Configuration Software, you program the names of the sources, destinations, optos, relays, locations, and consoles. Program the characteristics of the sources and destination, linking to optos and relays. Program console buttons, source selects, buss assignments. Set trim levels on inputs and outputs. Monitor and control the entire system on the crosspoint maps. Save and restore the entire system configuration (or any section) to insure your peace of mind.




Automation is extremely powerful software that interfaces with the Server to provide a wide range of "if this, then that" functions. Automation events can be trigger by time of day, by a crosspoint going on or off, by a source being taken to or removed from an output, or by an opto or relay going on or off. The event can then make or remove a crosspoint, open or close an opto or relay, send a serial command to another device, send a message via IP, and more. Events can be conditional, so they will only happen if a condition is true.

As with all Configuration software, Automation is user-configurable in an easy-to-use GUI; no ini file editing or programming language required.
