FAQs

Does the FD200CPU have audio out?

No, the FD200CPU does not have any audio outputs.

Why in the manual for the FD200CPU does it state not to mount the upside down?

The reason we do not want the unit mounted upside down is for overheating reasons. With the unit mounted upside down there is no place for the heat to travel other than back into the unit. Please allow 2 inches of space around the top and sides to allow adequate airflow.

Do I have to have the keyboard that comes with the Install Kit to make changes to my FD200CPU?

No, any USB keyboard can be used to edit the configuration files on the unit. However, we recommend the keyboard that comes with the install kit as it has a built in trackball that helps with navigation of the system. A USB mouse can also be used in conjunction with the keyboard if you do not have the one provided in the install kit.
