2 SYSTEM HARDWARE
This chapter describes the essential parts of the system, available accessories, their connection and functions.

2.1 Hardware components


The pCO control family comprises three board sizes, varying according to the number of inputs and outputs. The
boards come in the sizes Small, Medium and Large.
All boards are installed in a closed plastic container, and are fitted with removable terminals.

The system in this software version, envisages the exclusive use of Medium and Large boards, depending on the
required configuration.
For connection with the unit, a recess mounted terminal with LCD 4x20 display is included. The terminal has 6 keys
for use both on the unit and for remote control and sharing with other network units.
As well as the control boards and display (essential parts) the system comprises a number of accessories such as:

Programming key;
Various boards for serial connections;
Driver for electronic thermostatic valves.

To facilitate the connection between boards and the display, the use of T switches may be useful in some specific
cases.

2.1.1 Medium and Large boards


The system may comprise one or two Medium or Large boards.

The Medium board has 8 analogue inputs, 6 of which are universal and 2 passive, 14 digital inputs, 4 analogue
outputs and 13 digital outputs.

The Large board has 10 analogue inputs, 6 of which are universal and 4 passive, 18 digital inputs, 6 analogue
outputs and 18 digital outputs.

The figure below shows a Large board. This figure enables the identification of the various parts of the board and
a legend summarises the relative functions.

2.1.2 Power supply
Power supply can be 24V ac or dc.
If the power supply is DC, ensure that the positive pole goes to the G terminal and the negative pole goes to the
G0 terminal.
In Blue Box applications, the power supply is AC and the G0 terminal is sometimes earthed to provide a fixed
reference potential.
In the event that several boards are connected in the local network, all G0 terminals must be connected to the
same potential and earth contact. If equipotential bonding of the earth connection cannot be guaranteed, the G0
terminals should remain floating.
The figure below is an example of the connection of multiple boards to a local network, powered by the same
transformer with secondary winding earthed.

7
2.1.3 Input/output connections
The figure below shows the main digital or analogue input and output connections

2.1.3.1 Digital inputs


Opto-insulated digital inputs enable the controller to receive information by means of voltage-free contacts.
As in the case of the controller power, all digital inputs can be powered by 24V DC or AC.
8
Some inputs can be powered by 24V or 230V. These inputs have a common terminal (one for 24V supply, one for
230V); for this reason, pay special attention when making connections to prevent 230V wires being fitted to the 24V
terminal. In the application FLBB0MCZ0E the 230V digital inputs are not used.

2.1.3.2 Digital outputs


The digital outputs are voltage-free contacts, normally open or in switching, of relays controlled by the
microprocessor.
The output terminals are arranged in groups and each group has a common pole. For this reason, the entire group
must power loads with the same voltage, while different groups can power loads with different voltages.
The contacts are protected by 250 V AC varistors. Common terminals can support 8 A resistive current or 2 A
inductive current (cos 0.4)

2.1.3.3 Analogue inputs


The analogue inputs enables the controller to read a signal varying between two limit values.
The controller has passive analogue inputs that can be connected with NTC temperature probes
(-50/100 C; 10 kOhm at 25 C), PT1000 temperature probes (-100/200 C; 1000 Ohm at 0 C) or to a voltage-free
contact. As well as the passive analogue inputs there are universal inputs which can be connected to NTC probes
or voltage probes 0/1V DC, 0/5V dc, 0/10V dc, and current probes 0/20 mA and 4/20 mA.
To power active probes, 21V DC is available from the +Vdc terminal, which can supply a maximum current of 200
mA and the +5Vref terminal for radiometric probes (0-5V).

2.1.3.4 Analogue outputs


Analogue outputs are powered by 24VAC /VDC at terminals VG and VG0.
The output signal is 0/10 V Dc type; each output can power a minimum impedance of 1 kOhm. All outputs are opto-
insulated.

9
2.2 User interface
The PGD0 6-key user interface is designed for panel-mounting; the back-lit LCD display is made up of 4 lines of 20
columns.
A user interface can be installed either on board the machine, remotely (wall-mounted), or both.

PGD0 User interface

The functions of the six keys are described below:

This key (referred to in this manual as "up arrow") is used to scroll through the screen pages
of the various menu sections and in edit mode to increase relative values.

This key (referred to in this manual as "down arrow") is used to scroll through the screen
pages of the various menu sections and in edit mode to decrease relative values.

This key (referred to in this manual as "enter key") is used to confirm selections for access
to the various menu sections and for parameter editing.

This key (referred to in this manual as "alarm key") displays active alarms, and enables the
user to clear them when required.

This key (referred to in this manual as "prog key") is used to access the loop of screen
pages in the various menu sections.

This key enables the user to return to the upper screen level. If pressed in the main menu,
enables access to a screen for activation/deactivation via the keypad.

2.3 Serial boards for supervision and remote assistance
When a serial board is installed, the unit can be connected to supervision or remote assistance systems.
Depending on the communication protocol required, various options are available.
The RS485 serial board with the code PCOS004850 enables communication on Carel and Modbus networks,
using the proprietory protocol Carel or the protocol Modbus-Jbus.
The serial board with the code PCO10000F0 (interface FTT10), enables communication on LonWorks networks.
The PCO1000BB0 serial board enables connection on BACnet RS485 type networks.
The RS232 serial board (code PCO100MDM0) enables connection to a modem for standard PSTN or GSM
telephone connections for sending SMS text messages.
The pCO Web board (PCO1000WB0) enables connection to Ethernet networks with the protocol SNMP, http,
BACnet over IP.

Serial Board RS485 Serial board LonWorks Board pCO Web Serial Board Serial board
PCOS004850 PCO1000WB0 PCO100MDM0 BacNet
PCO1000F0

Serial boards are also available for connection to the systems TREND, MP-BUS, and CANbus.

The serial boards must be inserted in the correct slot where a pin connector is present.
To fit the serial boards, first remove the small panel marked Serial Card on the controller:

picture

When installing the board, make sure that it fits snugly


on the two plastic supports, which are an integral part of
the pCO controller container

When the board has been installed, refit the small


panel so that the exposed section of the connector is
aligned with the hole in the panel

2.4 Electronic expansion valve

The EVD000200 driver module for controlling electronic expansion vessels for pLAN networks, enables regulation
of superheating on intake for more efficient and versatile operation of the cooling unit.

Use of an electronic expansion valve involves the installation of the valve Driver as well as a temperature probe
and pressure transducer, both fitted at the end of the evaporator on the cooling side (on the intake pipeline of the
compressor). Refer to Errore. L'origine riferimento non stata trovata. for an illustration of a typical system

2.5 Integrated humidifier
pCO boards manage all functions, from reading of humidifier parameters to control of related devices by means of
relays (load, offload, power). Reading of humdifier values (current, conductivity, level) is not direct but via an
interface board (PCOUMID200 or PCOUMID000).

The integrated humidifier is an immersed electrode


type. Key to the main components:

Load-bearing frame
Cylinder
Draining solenoid valve
Adjustable 90 drain coupling (4a: straight coupling
standard supply)
Loading tray + conductimeter
Loading solenoid valve

2.5.1 Integrated humidifier interface board


The interface board with code PCOUMID200 enables interfacing of the basic capacities of OEM humidifiers in the
KUE series produced by CAREL (Level, Supply water conductivity, Current absorption by TAM) with the pCO
board. The values read by the relative probes are converted into signals recognisable by the inputs on the pCO
board.
The command of the humidifier devices (water load, water drain, and power contactor) is direct with the relays of
the pCO boards.

2.5.2 Types available for cylinders and relative parameters


Specific pages are envisaged on the LCD terminal for humidifier control. Control is possible of 1.5 single cylinder
humidifiers, single phase at 15 Kg/h 3-phase and with supply voltage from 208 to 575 Volt. On the basis of the
14
humidifier current and ambient humidity signals, the program controls production of steam and the humidifier
working conditions, and also manages and notifies the operator of all statuses and alarms.

2.6 Local network for pCO


The local pLAN network enables the various system elements to communicate with the standard serial RS485 at a
baud-rate of 65.2 kbit/s, using the Carel Multimaster protocol.
The number of elements comprising the system varies according to the degree of complexity, from basic, i.e.
comprising only one I/O board and a terminal for controlling a unit, to complex where a unit comprises an I/O
board , electronic valve driver, a local terminal and a second remote terminal and possible other I/O boards for other
units on the network.
2
The connection to the pLAN network between boards is by means of two wires with a minimum section of 0.5 mm
plus sheath or shield.
The connection must be made by connecting terminals RxTx+ and RxTx- to the corresponding terminals of the
various boards (connector J11 on the pCO board).
If the distance between the terminal and the pCO board connected is less than 50 m, the terminal can be
connected directly by means of a 6-way telephone cable.

To connect the terminal at a distance greater than 50 m. but within 200 m., or to connect two terminals to the same
2
I/O board, use 3 pairs of braided wire inside a shield, with a minimum section of 0.5 mm and T switches as shown
in the figure.

3 PROGRAM OPERATION

3.1 General
This software is designed for the control of Close Control units for air conditioning of computer rooms or for
environments requiring precise control of temperature and humidity.
Special attention has been paid to the aspect of Energy Saving and for this purpose special adjustments have been
added to exploit environments in favour of energy saving.

3.2 Direct expansion units (DE)


Units can be single or double compressor models with air or water condensation.
As well as the stadard outfit, compressors can be combined with additional components to obtain the following
controls:
- Temperature set point compensation;
- Costant Temperature (CT);
- Dual Cooling (DC);
- Water Freecooling (FcW);
- Air Freecooling (FcA).
The functions of these controls are dealt with in the sections below.
On air-condensed units, remote condenser fans can be controlled directly from the controller in on/off mode or
modulating mode (0-10V), controlled in pressure or temperature mode, with pre-ventilation function during standby
and two-step management in the case of single coils.

On water-condensed units, compressors can be disabled in the case of no water supply, to then resume operation
when the conditions permit, thus avoiding shutdown of compressors due to high pressure.

3.3 Chilled water units (CW)


For this type of system, the units can be equipped with chilled water coils with both floating (3P) or modulating (0-
10V) valve control.
As well as the stadard outfit, the chilled water coil can be combined to obtain the following controls:
- CW Summer/Winter (with switching from external control);
- Double Water coils (DW).
The functions of these controls are dealt with in the sections below.
In particular, as in the case of mechanical cooling, DC, FcW and FcA controls can also be applied with CW units.
The controller can pilot a water chiller to correct the set point as required (provided this is enabled) in the cases of
specific load demands.
Also, a flowswitch can indicate the lack of water sending a signal to the coolling circuit, thus enabnling the
management of different situations for shutdown of the unit and restart when circulation is restored.

3.4 Post-heating
Post-heating is obtainable both with capacity step-controlled devices (e.g. electric heaters or hot water coils with
on/off servo-control) or with proportional control devices (e.g. 3-way water floating [3P] or modulating 0-10V valve).

3.5 Humidification
Humidification is obtainable with management of an integrated immersed electrode humidifier. The same control
can be obtained with an On/Off or modulating (0-10V) control in the case of an external humidifer

3.6 Dehumidification
Dehumidification, i.e. cooling of air to below dew point, enables a reduction in relative humidity of the circulating air.
Therefore the compressors (ED) or cold water coil (CW) can also operate below the set temperature set point to the
limit, over which operation is disabled.
The cooled air may then be post-heated with heaters or hot water coil in proportion to the distance from the entered
set point.
17
Furthermore, with the aim of increasing the dehumidifying process reducing evaporation, the controller can manage
the fan delivery speed (forced dehumidification).

18
4 SOFTWARE FUNCTIONS

4.1 Temperature control


The heating and cooling deivces are managed on the basis of the temperature value measured by the ambient
probe (or on intake) This temperature is compared with the required value (set point) and the most suitable devices
are aciated according to the difference.
The proportional band identifies the conditioner control range and can take on independent values in heating and
cooling.
The dead zone identifies the cut-off range of the devices around the set point (the use responds to the need to
avoid control oscillations)

The following diagram illustrates the behaviour of the heating and cooling devices. The parameters for start and end
of opening of the hot and cold valves are independent and settable as required in the range 0-100% of the
proportional band.

4.1.1 Direct expansion units (DE)


The controller manages 1 or 2 compressoris, hermetic or with capacity step control (configuration not used), on
separate and independent cooling circuits or on a single circuit (tandem configuration). In the case of two
compressors, the cooling proportional band is equally divided between the capacity steps available.
Heating (or post-heating) is controlled by electric heater capacity steps or a hot water coil. Electric heaters are
controlled in capacity steps, up to a maximum of three using two outputs (with binary logic, two coils one of which
with a resistance power that is double the other). The heating band is divided by the number of steps in equal parts.
The hot water coil valve can be modulating 0-10V or 3-way floating [3P]; in each case the degree of opening
increases linearly within the proportional range from 0 to 100%.

4.1.2 Chilled water units (CW)


On chilled water units, the valves of the water coils have propotional control with 0-10V or 3-point floating control.
The heating (or post-heating) devices are the same as those on direct expansion units and operate in the same
way.

4.1.3 Chilled water cabinets (CW) with single coil


A single coil and one valve (wiuth 3P floating or 0-10V control) can be used, switching between operating mode
(and logic) from cooling to heating by means of digital input ID2. Obviously in each case the coil is supplied with hot
or cold water depending on the configuration.

19
4.1.4 Other temperature functions

4.1.4.1 High/Low ambient temperature alarm and dehumidifier disable


The controller detects anbient temperature that remains outside the set limits for a time greater than the settable
time interval. The reset differential is fixed and set at 1C. The high/low temperature condition does not deactivate
the outputs and is subject to a delay interval settable on unit start-up.
Dehumidification can also be blocked (if in progress) when the ambient temperature is too low.

4.2 Humidity control


The humidity control devices are managed on the basis of the humidity values measured by the ambient (or air
return) probe B1. The measured value is compared with the required value and devices are activated according to
the difference.
The proportional band identifies the effective control range and can take on independent values in humidification
and dehumidification.
There is a fixed dead zone of 0.2% before and after the setpoint, within which there is no control (to avoid
oscillations).

4.2.1 Humidification
Humidification is possible by means of:
Integrated immersed electrode humidifier, with proportional control according to the regulation band.
External ON/OFF type humidifier (controlled via digital output DO11) or modulating (controlled via analogue output
Y2).

4.2.2 Dehumidification
Dehumidification is possible as follows:
External dehumidification device control (digital output DO6)
Activation of cooling devices (compressors or coil) to reach dew point of the air handled. The activation mode
changes according to whether TEMPERATURE or HUMIDITY is set with priority. In the first case, the cooling
devices are activated proportionally in relation to the temperature until the the set point is reached, after which they
are overridden to 100%. In the second case, override to 100% is activated immediately. In both cases, if the
temperature falls below the set point, cooling continues to operate and the heaters are activated.
Reduction of air flow rate, with a dual polarity motor or motor with external inverter control. In the case of the motor
with dual polarity, the controller switches between the digital outputs DO1 and DO6, thus enabling, for example,
closure of two different contactors connected to two motor windings, with a settable dead time (default: 2 s) to
enable complete disengagement of electromechanical control devices. The output for low speed is activated when
the humidity level exceeds the threshold, equal to the set point + dehumidification band and is deactivated when the
set point is reached. In the case of motors with inverter control, the command signal Y1 is reduced from the
maximum set value to a constant value throughout the dehumidification process. This enables fine tuning to ensure
optimal air flow rate. Activation follows the same parameters as those of the dual polarity motors.

4.2.3 Other humidity functions


As in the case of temperature, the humidity alarm thresholds are also managed. Offset (distance from setpoint) and
delays are settable as required. The high/low humidity condition does not deactivate the outputs.

4.3.1 Capacity steps


These may have an N.O. logic, (normally open, the output is energised under full load) or N.C. logic, (normally
closed, the output is energised for capacity step implementation) to adapt to the model of compressor used. On
start-up of the compressor, capacity step implementation is always active, and switching to full load on demand
after a settable delay interval.
In the event of a demand for dehumidification, the compressors overridden to full load.
The activation/deactivation logic of the compressors and capacity steps on the basis of temperature is always to
first activate a compressor in capacity step mode, then full load, followed by the second compressor in capacity step
mode and then full load.

4.3.2 Rotation
In the case of more than one compressor, the controller sequence of activating the compressors on demand can be
set.
21
None: The controller activates the first compressor available (starting from no. 1)
FIFO (fist in, first out): The controller manages the compressors in sequence so that the first to be acvtivated is also
the first to be shut down (and consequently the first to turn off and the last to restart).

4.3.3 Operating times

4.3.3.1 Minimum operating time (ON)


This sets the minimum time (in seconds) in which the compressor remains in operation, regardless of requests for
shutdown (provided this is not caused by an alarm).

4.3.3.2 Minimum shutdown time (OFF)


This sets the minimum time (in seconds) in which the compressor remains switched off, regardless of requests for
restart.

4.3.3.3 Minimum time between start-up of different compressors


This sets the minimum time (in seconds) between nstart-up of one compressor and the next.

4.3.3.4 Minimum time between start-ups of the same compressor


This sets the minimum time (in seconds) between two consecutive start-ups of the same compressor, regardless of
load demands. In other words, on increase of the value, the number of start-ups in the time interval is decreaed.

4.3.3.5 Minimum capacity step time


This sets the minimum time (in seconds) between nstart-up of a compressor in capacity step mode (with minimum
load) and override to maximium load.

4.3.4 Management of override to capacity step implementation of compressors in tandem


In the case of a single cooling circuit with two hermetic compressors in tandem, the controller enables override to
shutdown of one or the two compressors when a set delivery pressure threshold is reached. This prevents
shutdown of both compressors due to high pressure and to keep the unit in operation even if under partial load
conditions.
Shutdown of one of the two compressors is obtained in two ways:

By opening of digital input ID1 compressor 1 will always be shut down. This typically involves a high pressure
switch with automatic reset, with an intervention threshold slightly lower than the high pressure switch (safety) with
manual reset. No alarm is signalled.
If the high pressure transducer is set (analogue input B2), shutdown of compressor 1 only will be automatic when
the high pressure threshold is reached (from transducer) with alarm signal (possibly resettabl automatically see
paragraph 4.15.2).

4.3.5 Management of solenoid valves on hot gas bypass line


If digital outputs DO9 and DO10 are enabled as bypass valves, these can be used to delay opening of the solneoid
valves on the hot gas bypass line. The delay time refers to the start-up of each compressor and is settable as
required.

22
4.3.6 Compressor alarms

4.3.6.1 High pressure


The high pressure alarm only is managed exclusively if the pressure transducers are enabled. When the threshold
is reached as set in the manufacturer menu the compressor is shut down immediately without observing the time
intervals and the alarm can be reset (manually or automatically see paragraph 4.15.2) only when the pressure falls
by the reset differential.

4.3.6.2 Low pressure


The low pressure alarm (linked to the status of digital inputs ID9 and ID10) causes shutdown of the relative
compressor. The alarm is delayed from start-up of the compressor at a settable time (to deal with any transitory
voltages). For the type of reset see paragraph 4.15.2

4.3.6.3 General alarm


This refers to opening of digital inputs ID1 and ID2 (in the case of compressors on separate cooling circuits) or ID2
and ID3 (in the case of compressors in tandem on a single circuit). This causes immediate shutdown of the relative
compressor without observing time intervals. This is normally associated with activation of the compressor thermal
cutout or high pressure safety switch.

4.4 Condensation fans


Two outputs for condensation fans can be piloted by enabling the relative pressure transducers. The following
configurations are possible:

Independent on/off outputs: each output cpontrols a fan unit, depending on the pressure read for each circuit.
On/off outputs on two steps for a single two-circuit condenser coil, for step control depending on the higher
condensation pressure value.
Independent analogue outputs: each output controls a fan unit, with a modulating 0-10V signal depending on the
condensation pressure.
Single analogue output for a single condenser coil, with a modulating 0-10V signal depending on the higher
pressure value of the two.

In any event the outputs are activated only when the compressors are activated (in the case of two independent
outputs, each output is linked only to operation of the associated compressor; in the case of a shared output,
activation of one of the two compressors is sufficient).

If a minimum value other than zero is set, the controller automatically shuts down the 1 bar output (fixed value)

The manufacturer menu has the option to enable the pre-ventilation function, which allows (with compressors
off) activation of ventilation (at maximum speed) if the pressure rises excessively, for example unfer the effect of
sunlight.

4.5 Heaters

4.5.1 Heater alarms


The digital inputs for heater alarms are ID3 and ID4, or ID4 only (cumulative) in the case of compressors in tandem
on a single circuit. Opening of the digital input causes immediate shutdown of the relative heater.

4.5.2 Heater disable from digital input


To meet specific requirements regarding electricity consumption, there is the option to disable the heaters via a
digital input (opening of ID17 on LARGE board only).

4.6 Humidifier

4.6.1 Integrated humidifier management


The main control parameters are:
Humidity set point
Proportional band of humidification
Maximum production

Max production
[kg/h]

20% of rated
production

Proportional band rh%

Figure 4-7

On the basis of Rated production (parameter of cylinder, equal to its maximum production at full operating status),
Maximum production (parameter settable by the user, fraction percentage of maximum production) and the
difference between the set point and current value, the software processes the effective target production of the
cylinder (on the basis of the diagram in Figure 4-7).

The humidifier has a minimum production of 20% of the rated power (for technical reasons) and remains constant
at this value for up to 20% of the proportional band then increasing as the difference increases between the
effective humidity and the required value to then reach maximum production set at the limit of the entered
proportional band. V

The humidifier has a slight hystereis of 0.2% fixed for activation/deactivation.


I

The integrated algorithm is summarised below.

In this type of humidifier, the steam is produced by boiling the water held by the cylinder. By
applying voltage on the internal electrodes, the Joule effect makes the current heat the water to
boiling point.

24
The current passing through the electrodes of the boiler depends essentially on the voltage applied on the
electrodes, the conductivity of the water in the cylinder and the level of the water itself.

The objective of the algorithm is to maintain the current that circulates through the electrodes at a reference value,
so that the quantity of steam is produced as required by the humidity probes and parameters set by the user.
During evaporation, the water level lowers and, as the measured current is directly proportional to the quantity of
water in the cylinder, the cylinder would have to be refilled continouously with very small amounts of water to
maintain this value constant.
To avoid this, it has been decided to keep the current within a certain range around trhe reference current, by
means of repeated cycles of water fill/evaporation.

As well as the level of water in the cyloinder, another determining factor in progress of the measured current is the
conductivity of the water in the cylinder. In fact during the evaporation cycles, the conductivity of water tends to
increase due to the increase in the concentration of salts. Measurement of water conductivity inside the boiler is
indirect, measuring the time taken to complete an evaporation cycle. This time is then compared with a reference
value (typical for each cylinder) and if the reading is lower a drain cycle is activated (drain by dilution) of a certain
quantity of water with replenishment of less conductive water from the mains.

The humidifier is equipped with a conductimeter able to read the mains water conductivity on inlet during filling. In
the case of high conductivity of inlet water, the control algorithm envisages a pre-alarm signal (which does not
interrupt operation) and then if necessary an alarm (which shuts down operation). This is essential to prevent the
inlet of excessively conductive water into the cylinder, which could impair correct operation of the humidifier.

A fundamental element placed at the top of the boiler is the high level probe, which enables detection of water or
foam at the top of the unit.
The high level electrodes may be activated for the following reasons:
total filling of water in the boiler with machine stationary due to leaking of the filling solenoid valve;
high water level during the initial cylinder filling phase;
high water level following deterioration of the cylinder due to deposits on the plates;
formation of foam.

In the event of repeated activation of the high level probe, the algorithm evaluates the possible cause of foam
presence. In this case, after complete cleaning of the cylinder (complete drain complete fill complete drain), if
high level probe activation persists, the controller sends the foam alarm (which does not intetrrupt operation).

An important point in humidifier operation is the control of possible current peaks. In fact each time voltager is
applied on the boiler electrodes after a period of standby, there may be some brief but intense current peaks. In the
initial period, if a current peak occurs, the algorithm responds immediately by shutting off voltage to the electrodes
and activating a drain cycle. If the current peaks persist, humidifier operation is shut down and the high current
alarm is activated.

The algorithm also monitors the methods with which drains are implemented, sending a drain alarm when
necessary if a reasonable reduction in current is not detected at the time of a drain cycle start.
Vice versa the low water alarm may be activated if no reasonable increase in current is detected during the
humidifier filling cycle.

A number of auxiliary functions can also be managed by the controller:


- drain due to reduction in set point. In the event of significant reductions in the required production of steam
during operation, instead of waiting for the water level (and thus production) to decrease under the effect of
evaporation, a drain cycle is activated. Drainage is considered strong if current values exceed 33% of the requested
value. Active by default.
- drain due to prolonged disuse (days). If the humidifier remains powered but not in production for a longer
period than the set value, the controller activates a complete drain cycle to remove the water from the cylinder. This
function prevents corrosion of the electrodes caused by strongly saline water in the case of humidifier disuse for
long periods. Active by default.
- periodic drain (hours). If the filling water contains impurities (such as humus) or is aggressive, the bouiler should
be drained periodically at a set interval as required. Active by default.
- drain without power. In the case of automatic drainage to remove salts, the electrodes are shut down, stopping
steam production temporaraily. In this way possible current dispersion to earth is avoided if the drain lines are
conductive. Active by default.
- cylinder deterioration signal. The signals cylinder deteriorating or cylinder deteriorated may be enabled if
required, manabged by the controller independently on the basis of operating parameters recorded by the cylinder,
indicating that the cylinder is no longer able to guarantee nominal production levels. These signals do not cause
deactivation of the cylinder (not set as default).

25
- shutdown delay (seconds). A delay may be set for cylinder shutdown from when there is no longer the request
from the humidifier (zero by default).
- override of conductivity (S/cm). This is set at zero by default.
- drain percent. time (% with respect to H3). This and the next parameter can modify (as a percentage) the
duration of the drainage by dilution and relative frequency. Modifications to default settings are not recommended.
- evap. percent. time. (% with respect to H4).
- high conductivity pre-alarm and alarm. Set alarm thresholds related to the filling water conductivity. Excessively
conductive water can damage the cylinder. The pre-alarm does not cause cylinder shutdown but the alarm does.
Adjustment of humidity is via the program on the basis of humidity probe readings, the humidity set point and the
humidity differential.

4.6.2 External humidifier management


An external ON/OFF type humidifier can be managed if required (controlled via a specific relay output) or a
humidifier with modulating control (controlled via an analogue output 0-10V).

In the first case activation of the humidifier occurs when the humidification proportional band set point is reached, to
then stop at the relative set point. The external humidifier must be equipped with its own control logic, with a
voltage-free alarm contact to be connected to the relative input on the pCO board to signal faults. In this case the
digital output is deactivated.

In the second case activation of the 0-10V signal is proportional to the position of the ambient humidity within the
humidification proportional band; also in this case the external humidifier must be equipped with its own control logic
and a voltage-free alarm contact for signalling faults.

4.6.3 Humidifier disable via digital input


There is the option to activate a specific digital input to deactivate the humidifer via a votlage-free contact. This may
be useful for energy saving purpioses or similar reasons (opening of ID18 on LARGE board only).

4.7 Modulating valves

4.7.1 3-point servocontrol valves


These are valves that have a servo-control with three electric contacts (in addition to power supply contact):
common, opening and closing. The last two must be connected to the two relative digital outputs on the pCO
boatrd.
On the basis of o0utput activation time, the degree of opening of the connected valve varies from 0 to 100%,
implementing an excursion time which, to change from the totally closed condition to the totally open status, is a
specific parameter depending on the valve. The relay outputs of the pCO board are never activated simultaneously;
therefore valves may be in three different states: opening, closing or stationary.
The required degree of valve opening is calculated on the basis of the effective difference from the temperature set
point; once expressed as a percentage the effective stroke time required is calculated starting from the time of total
valve stroke time. During operation the program learns the position (relative degree of opening) of the valve by
adding and subtracting the partial output activation times (opening and closing respectively) from the start of
adjustment.

Example: a valve with a stroke time of 90s, to be opened from zero to 40% needs an opening pulse of 36 s. To then
bring the valve to 25%, a closing pulse is required of 40-25=15% multiplied by 90s =13.5s.

4.7.1.1 Realignment
A characteristics of the 3-point valve is the lack of a feedback signal that can inform the controller of the effective
position. Mechanical inertia and small inaccuracies can accumulate gradually which increase the number of
activations, to the point of causing significant positioning errors. The program solves this possible problem as
follows:
Each time the temperature control requires total opening or closing of the valve, the opening or closing relay
activation time is increased by 25%. This ensures that the valve reaches the end of stroke position.
Each time the unit is switched on, the valves are overridden to closing for a time equal to the total stroke time, to
ensure adjustment from zero.

4.7.2 0-10 Volt modulating servocontrol valves


These are valves that use a modulating 0-10V dc signal sent by the pCO board to vary opening from 0 to 100%.

26
The electric signal of the dedicated analogue output is directly proportional to the request of the regulator, as is the
position of the valve. In this case there are no problems of alignment.

4.8 Delivery fan


There may be one of two types of delivery fan: with ON/OFF control (managed via digital output n 1) or modulating
(managed via analogue output n1).

In both cases the fan is activated when the unit is set to ON, and remains active until the status is not changed to
OFF (manually via the keyboard, via digital output or by time band settings) or to STANDBY (by rotation with other
units in the network). Delay times can be set both from start-up (ON) and shutdown (OFF).

The fan is shut off during operation only in the event of an alarm. This may occur due to a direct ventilation alarm
(motor thermal cutout, air flow failure) or due to a serious alarm related the unit as a whole (fire/smoke alarm,
flooding alarm, external alarm, condensate drain pump alarm). For chilled water units it is possible to set whether
the water flow alarm (chilled) should shut down the fan or not.

If the fan is modulating type a minimum and maximum speed can be set as required. The effective speed may vary
continuously between the two limits on variation of the temperature within the proportional band. By default the
minimum and maximum speeds are set at the same value, on the basis of requests for delivery/head to the fan.
A different control percentage (lower) can then be set on the fan in the case of dehumidification (see paragraph
6.3.2).

4.9 Electronic thermostat valves


The driver Carel EVD000200 enables control of the following valves:

Alco EX5-EX6
Alco EX7
Alco EX8
Sporlan SEI 0.5-11
Sporlan SEI 25
Sporlan SEI 50-SEH250
Carel E2V**P
Carel E2V**A
(Personalised)

The drivers can be fitted with back-up batteries to enable valve closure in the event of a power failure. The back-up
batteries are required if the cooling circuit is not fitted with solenoid valves on the liquid line.

The main principle of the control algorithm aims at unit stability, when possible, with rapid approach to superheating
status.
The algorithm calculates superheating as the difference between the intake temperature read by the temperature
probe and the saturation temperature corresponding to the pressure read by the transducer (by means of specific
tables depending on the set refrigerant).
The core of control is a PID algorithm with settable coefficients for control of superheating at a value entered as the
set point (normally 5C). The coefficients of the PID algorithm are factory set following theorestical assessments
and testing, but some guidelines can be provided for at least an initial setting:

Parameter Description Recommended value


Superheating set point The value that the driver 5-6C
attempts to reach
Dead zone This is a small interval above 0C, with possible slight increase (a few tenths of
and below the set point in C) if control seems stable

The value can be varied by +/- 20%

Derivative time This is the parameter that 1.5 s
determines the speed with Excessively high values can cause nrevous
which the valve increases or reactions of the valve (continuous opening and

On start-up of the compressor the driver opens the valve at the set percentage, after which effective control is
oimplemented. This percentage does not influence in the long-term but an excessively closed valve on start-up may
take longer to reach the set point and cause transitory reductions in intake pressure.

The accessory controls are:

LOW (Low superheating with settable integral time and threshold). In the case of low superheating (normally
less than 2-3C) the algorithm envisages a more effeicient closure
LOP (Low evaporation pressure, enabled only during transitories, with settable integral time and threshold).
In the case of low evaporation pressure the algorithm
envisages opening of the valve provided that
superheating does not fall below the LOW threshold.
MOP (High evaporation pressure, with settable integral time and threshold). The algorithm avoids further
opening of the valve when the saturation temperature exceeds the MOP threshold (normnally 12-15C).
HiTcond (High condensation pressure, activatabkle with condensation pressyre probe read by pCO,with
settable integral time and threshold). The algorithm envisages closure of the valve in the event of high
condensation pressure, to reduce the flow of refrigerant and lower evaporation pressure (and
consequently condensation pressure).
Suction (High suction temperature). During the MOP procedure, if the temperature measured by the suction
Limit temperature probe is hightrer than the set threshold, the MOP procedure is disabled.
For each of the above parameters an alarm with relative delay interval can be activated.

Modifications to the defaut settings are not recommended without the assistance of Blue Box.

4.10 Free cooling


This basicially consists in using a free cold source for cooling (water or air) available only in specific
circumstances, as an alterative to normal cooling (normally by compressors).

4.10.1 Water free cooling (FcW)


A water condenser can be set up equipped with a supplementary water cooling coil, supplied, for example, by an
external dry-cooler normally used to cool the water for condesation. If the water temperature is sufficiently cool, it
can be used as an altervative cooling source or as an auxiliary device to the compressors. Subsequently the water
on outlet from the free-cooling coil can be used for condensation.
28
The controller uses a temperature probe on the water and if the latter is at an acceptable temperature, a modulating
0-10V valve (analogue output AO6) can be activated via analogue output Y6.
By appropriate parameter settings, the user can decide whether to use the external source water according to three
possible logics:
On the basis of the differenc (offset) of air on inlet to the unit. By default this value is set at 2C. The free-cooling
valve is thus only activated if the water temperature is at least 2C below that of the air.
On the basis of the absolute water temperature. By default this value is set at 16C. The free-cooling valve is thus
only activated if the water temperature is below 16C. A minimum limit can also be set.
On the basis of the external air temperature (if the relative probe is enabled). If the external air temperature is less
than (by a specific offset) the internal air temperature, free-cooling is enabled. In this way, for example, an external
dry-cooler can be used to obtain water at an intermediate temperature between the external air and ambient air
temperature.

Figure 4-8

There are two separate methods of integrating the cooling devices available (normally free).
The first is to use the free-cooling valve together with the compressors (compressor operation in auxiliary mode). In
this case the proportional band for cooling is divided into two parts: in the first the receivery valve is used and in the
second the compressor capacity steps are used. This means that free-cooling is used alone only while load
demands can be met, after which the compressors are activated to operate at the same time.
The following diagram illustrates the control logic: note how the operating bands of the chilled water valve and
compressors overlap. Only the maximum valve opening point can be modified.

Set point

Compressor 1

Figure 4-9

The second is to use only the recovery valve as the water provided that the water is sufficiently cool (alternating
compressor mode). The valve occupies the entire proportional band as in the case of cooled water coils, modulting
on the basis of heat load requests.

In both the above cases, if the water temperature does not conform with that required for free-cooling, the relative
valve is closed and cooling is controlled entirely by the compressors, which occupy the entire proportional band.

In the event of demand for dehumidifcation, activation of the compressors can be relayed with respect to total
opening of the valve.

29
4.10.2 Air free cooling
If the external air temperature is lower than the air on recovery and is available to the unit, the modulating analogue
outpout AO6 can be used to control mixture dampers. The operating logic is very similar to that of water free-
cooling. if the external air temperature is lower than that of recovery by a specific differential (normally 2C, but
settable as required), an analogue output is activated to control a system of dampers that deliver gradually
increasing percentages of external air. The control logic is identical to that of water free-cooling. use of the
compressors in auxiliary mode with the dampers can be set (if load demands cannot be met) or alternating (both
operating together). If the air temperature is outside the admissible limits, only the compressors will operate.

4.11 Dual Cooling


The dual cooling function is similar to free-cooling, differing only in the fact that the units use two cooling systems; a
main one (cooled water) and a secondary one (backup) in direct expansion.
While there is a flow of cooled water (indicated by the flow switch) at an acceptable temperature, the unit uses a
water coil served by a valve controlled by analogue output AO6. If there is not adequate water or the temperature is
too high, the controller uses the compressors.

The control logic is basically identical to the water free-cooling mode. Compressors can be enabled in alternating or
auxiliary mode with the cooled water coil. Refer to Figure 4-9.

In the event of demand for dehumidification, activation of the compressors can be delayed with respect to total
opening of the valve.

4.12 Constant Temperature


This configuration envisages use of a hot gas post-heating coil, with modulating 0-10V control coil, to improve
balancing of the ambient thermal load with the cooling output delivered by the compressor (in this case only single
compressor configurations are envisaged).
The opening band of the hot gas valve overlaps the compressor band; in this way the ambient temperature is
positioned reasonably stably within the proportional band without activation/deactivation of the compressor.
Post-heating can also (in addition to hot gas) be controlled by a hot water coil or electric heaters. In the three cases
(hot gas only, hot gas with water coil, hot gas with electric heaters) the control diagrams differ in the point of
compressor shutdown, which gradually moves downwards while remaining within the heating band (the compressor
normally shuts down at the set point).

4.13 Limitation of delivery temperature in free-cooling and dual cooling mode
In both types of free-cooling use of a temperature probe is required on air delivery to avoid excessively low
temperatures. This is to solve the need both to avoid the delivery of excessively cool air into the environment during
free-cooling and to avoid the formation of ice on the direct expansion coil when operating with free-cooling.
The parameters that determine operation of this mode are basically a set point and differential on delivery air.
Within the differential, limitation on the cooling devices increases proportionally to become total at the limit of the
differential. As regards the limited devices, when compressors are not enabled together with valves/dampers, this
means that:
The valves are closed progressively
The single compressor is shut down when the differential is reached
With two compressors, one is shut down at the mid-differential point and the other when the differential is reached

Note that the function of limiting the delivery temperature can be enabled regardless of the presence of free-cooling

4.14 DW management (Dual Water)


DW mode is reserved exlcusively for chilled water units (CW). The aim of this mode is to manage to separate
cooling coils with two independent 3-point control valves.

32
There are two control modes of the double water coils:
Separate: only one coil (and valve) operates at a time, selected according to the status of digital output ID1. The
valve in operation at the time occupies the entire proportional band. Example of application: one coil operates
during the day with water supplied from a chiller, the other at night with water from a dry-cooler or other source.
Combined: both coils (and valves) are used at the same time within the same differential. In this case there is no
influence of the status of input ID1. Example of application: one coil uses a primary source for the normal thermal
load, and the second uses a different auxiliary source for load peaks.

If the coils are used together, the starting point (valve closed) and control end (valve completely open) can be set
for each valve, within the cooling band. For example, the user can choose to open a valve in the first half of the
proportional band and the second in the remaining half, as shown in the figure below.

4.15 Alarms
The terminal connected to the pCO board can display 82 different alarms, caused by opening of a digital output to
which a safety device is connected, or when a set threshold is exceeded, or due to an anomalous operation
condition.

At the time of activation of an alarm condition , the terminal connected to the pCO board illuminates the red led
below the alarm key and activates the digital alarm output (DO8). To display the alarm, press the alarm key, and
press again to clear the alarm if conditions allow this.

The following table explains the meaning of a number of alarms and the devices shut down following activation.

4.15.1 Serious and non-serious alarms
For each alarm the user can set (on a user level) whether it is a serious or non-serious alarm. A non-serious
alarm causes at the most shutdown of the associated device, while a serious alarm shuts down the unit completely.
The following alarms are considered serious by default:

Air flow
Fan thermal cutout
Fire/smoke
Flooding
External alarm
Water flow (with total shutdown)

If digital output DO7 is enabled as a non-serious alarm the relative non-serious alarms must be mapped on this
output, while the remainder stay on outpout DO8 as serious alarms.

4.15.2 Management of automatic reset of high and low pressure alarms


The high pressure (from transducer) and low pressure (from digital input) alarms can be managed with manual or
automatic reset.
The enable option is present in the manufacturer window and parameters are available in the user section.
Once automatic reset is enabled, the controller enables reset for a limited number of times within a set time interval.
A subsequent alarm, within the same interval causes display of the alarm and reset is only possible manually via the
keyboard.
Example: a maximum of three alarms within thurty minutes is set. On activation of the first alarm, the controller
automatically resets the unit when alarm conditions cease (e.g. closure of a pressure switch). If other alarms occur,
the controller checks the time elapsed and as soon as the fourth alarm occurs within less than thirty minutes from
the first, it overrides to manual reset only.

1a 2a 3a 4m 4a

60 min t

Figure 4-17
Obviously the freedom to set the number of alarms and time intervals requires the necessary caution and
knowledge of unit operating characteristics, to prevent alarms being reset automatically all the time due to an
excelssively low ration (time/no. alarms). A minimum value is recommended that is greater than the compressor
anti-recycle time.

4.15.3 Water flow switch management


The water flow switch features different and special management depending on the function required.

Unit type Flowswitch input Control application Shutdown Reset type


application
Water-condensed ID15 Condensation water Compressors Automatic or manual
ED
Dual Cooling ED ID15 Chilled water Chilled water valve Automatic or manual
CW ID10 Chilled water Chilled water valve Automatic or manual
or entire unit
CW DC ID10 Chilled water Chilled water valve Automatic or manual
(primary)

For water-condensed direct expansion units the flow switch has the main function of preventing high pressure
alarms due to water supply failure.
For chilled water units the flow switch has the main function of monitoring the presence of water for water coils.

36
For DC units the flow switch has the main function ofswitching cooling to the backup system (compressors or
secondary water valve) in the event of water supply failure from the primary source.

In all cases alarm delay times can be set both on start-up and at operating status. If reset is automatic, there is no
limit to the number of restarts.

4.15.4 Configurable voltage-free alarm contacts (Alarm board)


In the case of LARGE pCO boards only, digital outputs from 14 to 18 can be assigned different signal/status
functions. Possible assigned functions are:

Disabled
General alarm C1HP1
General alarm C2HP2
Alarm LP1
Alarm LP2
High/Low recovery temperature alarm
High/Low humidity recovery alarm
Fan thermal cutout alarm
Heater thermal cutout alarm
Integrated humidifier alarm
Air flow failure alarm
Smoke/fire Alarm
Clogged filter alarm
Flooding alarm
Condensate drain pump alarm
Water flow failure alarm
Unit in operation
Unit in cooling mode
Unit in heating mode
Unit in humidification mode
Unit in dehumidification mode
External humidifier alarm

The same variable may be selected for several outputs.

For example:
OUT 14- (Disabled)
OUT 15- General alarm C1 HP1
OUT 16- (Disabled)
OUT 17- Clogged filter alarm
OUT 18- Unit in cooling mode

Other example:
OUT 14- (Disabled)
OUT 15- General alarm C1 HP1
OUT 16- General alarm C1 HP1
OUT 17- Clogged filter alarm
OUT 18- Unit in cooling mode

4.15.5 Base log


Availability of memory on te pCO board enables storage of alarm events. The maintenance menu enables access
to the history log, which for each window displays:
Progressive number of alarm
Description of alarm
Time and date of alarm

A maximum of 100 alarms can be saved in the log, after which alarm number 101 overwrites no. 1 and so on.
The arrow keys can be used to scroll through the list of stored alarms from the most recent to the oldest.

37
The entire log can be deleted by means of the specific procedure in the "manufacturer menu, or is cleared
automatically each time the memory is reset via the "manufacturer menu or when software is loaded by means of
Winload32.

4.15.6 Sending alarm messages via a GSM network


If the pCO board is fitted with a RS232 serial board and connected to a GSM modem with enabled SIM card, a
telephone number can be set (GSM) to which the pCO can send alarm messages. The messages sent are the
same as those stored in the base log. The enable the function, the GSM communication proptocol must be
selected in the relative service window, with entry of the GSM telephone number to which messages are to be
sent and the communication speed with the GSM modem (normally 9600 bps).

The following list specifies the compatible GSM modems:

MODEM
TYPE MANUFACTURER COMPATIBILITY (*) TEST
GSM360 TELITAL NO
POCKET GSM DIGICOM YES
GSM 2702-D MICROTEL YES
WMOD2B WAVECOM YES YES
FALCOM A2D FALCOM YES YES
FALCOM A3D FALCOM YES
M20 SIEMENS YES
TC35 SIEMENS YES YES

(*) Theoretical compatibility on level of set of Hayes commands

The tested modems are assessed with hardware and result as correctly operational. The compatible modems were
tested with a set of Hayes commands, which coincide with the set of commands used by the pCO.

For connection of the pCO to the GSM modem, follow the instructions supplied with the modem. The RS232 serial
board of the pCO requires a 9 pole female connector.

4.15.7 Evolved log


The pCO board is equipped with a flash memory available for storing the main variables (temperature, humidity,
etc..). The historical progress of these variables can be accessed for offline analysis on PC, downloading it by
means of the programming Smartkey or the software Winload32

4.16 Set point compensation / variation

4.16.1 Set point variation on the basis of the external air temperature
If the external air probe and set point compensation function are enabled, the set point can be varied in linear mode
between the two values. The variation will proportional to the increase in external temperature as shown in the
diagram:

Set point

Compensation
Normal offset
set point

Compensation prop. band


External air temp.
Compensation set point

38
Figure 4-18
The set point varies proportionally from the default value (set in the SET menu) to the value defined by the default
set point + compensation set point.

4.16.2 Variation of set point from external signal


If the relative analogue input and function are enabled (in the manufacturer menu), the set point will vary in linear
mode between a minimum and maximum value of the external signal between its limits. External signals type 0-1V,
0-10V, 4-20 mA can be used (entered in the user menu).

4.16.3 External chiller set point compensation (CW unit)


On chilled water units only, the compensation function to an external chiller can be enabled in the manufacturer
menu. On variation of the temperature within the differential band, an analogue output varies in linear mode
between 0-10V (direct logic) or 10-0V (inverse logic). This output can be used for actions of compensation of the set
point of a water chiller, for example increasing it if a thermal load is not requested (with consequent energy saving).

4.17 Air defrosting


The function can be activated only if the delivery air temperature probe is enabled. The logic envisages shutdown of
the compessors when the delivery temperature reaches critical values, which can be correlated to possible frosting
of the finned evaporator coil. The thermal load of the untreated air will thus enable coil defrosting.
The settable parameters are the temperature threshold which enables the defrosting procedure, the compressor
shutdown time and the minimum time interval that has to elapse between two consecutive defrosting cycles.
The defrosting procedure is ignored during dehumidification.
39
4.18 Efficiency control
The cooling efficiency control is not completely developed; implementation as described below and activatable on
this software release can be used for testing purposes when generation of the relative alarm does not cause
problems on a user/installation level.

The aim of the function is to monitor the difference in temperature of the air treated and to indicate an excessively
low value, which may lead to a drop in efficiency. For this reason, the delivery air temperature probe must not be
connected or enabled.

The parameters for efficiency control management are:

Theoretical operation delta (default value 10C, modifiable). This is the difference in the acceptable minimum
temperature between the delivery and recovery air at maximum cooling ouput. In the case of one compressor ON in
two, the delta is automatically divided by two.
Tolerance. This is a multiplicative numerical factor of the temperature difference measured. The calculated value is
that compared with the theoretical delta.
Delay time. Once the measured temperature delta falls belown the theoretical value, a set time interval must pass
before activating the signal.

The table of multiplicative coefficients for the measured temperature delta is provided below:

Tolerance 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
Coefficient 1.05 1.1 1.15 1.2 1.25 1.3 1.35 1.4 1.45 1.5

The efficiency control is excluded in dehumidification and heating modes, and in all cases with chilled water units.

4.19 Running-Standby
The possibility of connecting up to 8 units on a pLAN network enables increased system management efficiency.
In particular a rotation system can be configured in which a certain number of units are active (running) and the
remaining on standby. In particular (only on units with the pCO pLAN address =1) the following are set:

which units are present on the network


how many units are normally on standby
Type of rotation (automatic, by operating hours or time bands)
Rotation time (if automatic rotation or by operating hours) or time of rotation and rotation time interval (in days).

All rotation functions are active if board no. 1 is ON and physically connected to the pLAN. Otherwise all other units
will run as stand-alone units independently from one another.

During normal operation, on elapse of the set rotation time interval (if in hours or a a set time every specific number
of days) one of the units in operation will shut down and a standby unit will be activated. If the type of rotation is
automatic, the activated unit with the lowest address shuts down and the unit on standbgy with the highest address
is activated (following the FIFO logis). If the type of rotation is by operating hours, the unit with the greatest number
of operating hours (from those in operation) shuts down and the unit with the lest number is activated (from those in
standby).

The units in standby can also be activated before the normal rotation time elapses, in the event of the following:
One of the units in operation is subject to a blackout or disconnects from the pLAN, or is set to OFF via the
keyboard or digital input.
One of the units in operation activates a SERIOUS alarm category.
one of the units is completely shut down due to an alarm (e.g. smoke/fire, air flow etc.)

For each unit in one of the above conditions, the logic attempts to activate the same number (if available) of standby
units. When the condition is eliminated, the unit/s previously activated return to standby status.

4.19.1 Temperature override


A function can be activated, which if one of the units in operation has problems with managing the thermal load, one
of the standby units is started up as a support. The override control parameters are settable only on the unit with
address 1, and more specifically:
Override differential
Override ofset
Override Delay time

Different parameters and times can be set for heating and cooling.
40
Heating Cooling
override offset override offset

Heating band Cooling band Room temp.

Temperture set point

Figure 4-21

If a unit in operation detects an increase in the recovery temperature above (or below) the thresholds (set point +/-
override differential) a standby unit is overridden until the temperature returns within the override limit +/- override
offset.

4.20 Master Control


If there are several units on a local network serving the same environment, it may be useful to manage them so that
there is no operating conflict leading to excessive energy consumption levels. For this purpose, the Master Control
function can be enabled in the manufacturer menu.
The logic envisages that the unit with pLAN address 1 acts as the master, i.e. that other units cannot operate in
contrast with this unit. More specifically, for each operating status of the master unit, only a number of statuses of
the slave units are admissible:

Master status Slave status disabled


Cooling Heating
Heating Cooling
Humidification Dehumidification
Dehumidification Humidification

In these conditions the Master unit temperature and humidity probes should be positioned at a medium point of
the environment to be conditioned.
For all other cases the slave units will operate according to the specific settings (set points and differentials). If the
local network is interrupted (or the Master unit goes offline) the slave units will all operate independently.

The Master Control function can also be enabled at the same time as Running/Standby rotation. In this case the
Master unit temperature and humidity probes MUST be positioned in the environment.

4.21 Time-band operation


The presence of an integrated clock enables the entry of time, date and day of the week as well as activattion of
on/off functions according to pre-set time bands, or the assocuiation of different temperature and/or humidity set
points with specific time bands. The time bands for on/off status and variation of set points are separate and
independent.

4.21.1 On/off commands based on time-bands


If enabled, there are four time bands as follows:

F1-1: ON time, OFF time


F1-2: ON time, OFF time
This time band envisages two operating cycles within 24 hours.

41
00:00 24:00

F1-1 F1-2

F2: ON time, OFF time


This time band envisages a single operating cycle within 24 hours.

00:00 24:00

F2

F3: fixed, unit always ON

00:00 24:00

F3

F4: fixed, unit always OFF.


00:00 24:00

F4

One of the above time bands can be associated with each day of the week. Example:

Day of the week Time band


Monday F2
Tuesday F2
Wednesday F3
Thursday F3
Friday F2
Saturday F1
Sunday F4

42
4.21.2 Variation of set point from time bands
4 different contiguous time bands are identified, asscoated with the starting time and relative temperature set point.
The same can be performed for humidity

00:00 24:00

Z1 Z2 Z3 Z4
The diagram in the figure above can be applied both to the temperature and humidity set points, with resepective
time bands managed separately.

4.22 Factory-settings back-up

4.22.1 Retrieving a set of parameters


The last saved configuration can be recalled at any time from the user menu.

4.23 Management of air renewal damper


The analogue output AO6, when not used for the recovery valve (DC, FC, etc.) can be used to control a
servocommand for a damper used for ambient air renewal.
The output can be controlled according to two logics.

Fixed: an opening value is set (expressed in Vdc) and when the unit is ON the output maintains the pre-set value
(constant air exchange).
At intervals: the output opens for a set time, at regular intervals (pause/work logic) by a percentage equal to the
opening value set in Vdc.

4.24 Refrigerant table management


In the case of direct expansion units, one of the following refrigerants can be selected:

R22
R134a
R404A
R407C
R410A
- none

The input/output display menu shows the condensation pressure of each circuit and also the relative saturation
temperature (dew point if refrigerant with glide).
The choice of type of refrigerant is compulsory if the EVD drivers are present, as the saturation temperatures are
required to calculate superheating of gas on intake, based on the pressure and temperature.

4.25 Display languages


The interface pages can be displayed in the following languages:

Italian
English
French
German

The language is selected in the Maintenance menu. The user can also select whether on each controller start-up
after shutdown or blackout the language needs to be re-selected.

43
5 INPUT AND OUTPUT TABLE
The controller manages the unit via its inputs and outputs.
Depending on the type and complexity of the unit managed, there are different configurations of the inputs and
outputs to be selected from Medium (M) and Large (L) boards.
Management is possible of both direct expansion conditioning units (ED) and chilled water units (CW). On
activation, te program recognises the type and size of board, setting up the inputs and outputs accordingly. The
multiple items (xxx / xxx / ) indicate different purposes for which an inoput or output can be used; the selection is
made by means of the parameters in the Manufacturer menu windows.

6 INTERFACE PAGES
The interface pages enable the operator to check the operating status of the unit and enter all the main parameters.
The pages are sorted in a menu and sub-menu structure by logically similar functions access level (with or without
password) to facilitate orientation within the various pages available.
A characteristic common to all pages is an index, at the top right, which enables individual identification of the page
(e.g. to provide a precise reference).
To scroll through the various pages on the same level, the arrow keys are used. To pass from a lower to a higher
level, the ESC key is used.
Starting from the main menu, press PRG to enter the sub-menus available for entry/display of parameters:
