Can you interconnect A-Links CW and DX InRow Cooling products?

Issue:
Can you interconnect A-Links CW and DX InRow Cooling products?
Product line:
ACSC, ACRD, ACRC
Environment:
DataCenter InRow Cooling
Cause:
Resolution:
The key to grouping is if the units share the same firmware then they can be grouped.  So the ACRP10x, ACRP50x, ACRD50x and ACRC50x can all be grouped with "like" units (CW to CW, DX to DX). The ACRD10x and ACRD20x can be grouped together, but not with the others. The ACRC10x can only be grouped with itself and the same goes for the ACSC10x. The Gen2 units can not be grouped with the Gen1 units. The ACRD60x and ACRC60x can not be grouped with the ACRP10x or the ACRC50x units. Same with the ACRC301 CW units can not be grouped with the ACRC10x units.

Examples:

1) Cannot A-Link / Group
A) ACRD1xx + ACRP1xx +ACRD5xx on the same A-Link
 
B) ACRC1xx +ACRC5xx on the same A-Link

2) Can A-Link / Group
A) ACRP1xx + ACRD5xx on the same A-Link
 
B) ACRP5xx + ACRC5xx on the same A-Link
 


Just to clarify, it's "like" units, so 600mm DX with other 600mm DX; and 600mm CW with other 600mm CW; however, 600mm CW and 600mm DX can NOT be grouped, even though they share the same FW.

Here is a general list (all within the same category can be grouped).

For 300mm Units and Pumped Refrigerant:
Install the terminator on the left-hand side A-link ports on the first unit. The left-hand side is the in port. The right-hand side is the out port


For 600mm Units:
Follow the labels on the A-Link ports. The top port is the in port and the bottom port is the out port.
