Hi All,,

Can i daisy chain two controllers so that it can be operated at two different locations (Won't be used at the same time). I need to bring in controller located outside back in the mechanical space area. Anything special i need to look at?

TIA

(Edited):

It's an industrial air compressor unit located outside and we're planning to buy an another controller unit, daisy chain it inside so that operator can access it easily. What's your thoughts guys?

Your question lacks a lot of detail necessary to answer. What kind of "controller" are we talking about exactly? What are we controlling?

This is not an Electronics Question.

If You want to duplicate the Compressor-Control-Panel remotely,
call your Sullair-Representative.

As soon as You touch that Circuit-Board, any Warranty You may have had expires.

What control functions do you require remotely? Run/stop is a simple switch. It’s unlikely that the controllers are built to daisy chain, but you could construct a custom hmi and network with the existing controller via modbus. We had three units set up with a DCS to wear level.

Thank you, that's what I thought that we cannot daisy chain this type of controller. As another user mentioned, it's good idea to contact the supplier itself and have them do it.
