Additional Information
* Items in NV memory are not lost upon power or battery failure. Other types of NV memory such as EPROM, NOVROM, etc. do not directly impact system performance.
Can trend data be stored in this controller? No
How many total trend values can be stored? N.A.
What is the controllers role in trending? N.A.
Can controller be programmed to 'push' data to archive or are trends 'pulled' from controller? N.A.
When full, does controller automatically send up trend data, overwrite data, or stop logging data? N.A.
Programming Method(s) The CCP auto configures upon being powered. The CCP discovers all controllers on the link and starts with factory set defaults. The CCP is edited by using any of the following:
- software included with the unit
- the optional local display if present
- an upper system controller, Tracker BMTK, if present
Resident vs Non-Resident Program Execution Resident
Resident/Supervisory. This controller supervises the scheduling of other controllers.
Resident/Stand Alone. This controller contains its own schedule.
Non-Resident. This controller is dependent upon another controller for its schedule.
None. This controller has no scheduling features.
Resident Energy Management
Energy management algorithms for this controller can be custom programmed
Pre-programmed/built-in algorithms available, and are fully editable using custom programming
Pre-Programmed/built-in with limited editing via template-based programming
Controller is not typically used for energy management functions
Specific Pre-Programmed Algorithms Available
None (custom programming only)
None (not applicable)
Optimal Start/Optimal Stop
Peak Demand Limiting/Load Shedding
Economizer (enthalpy, dry-bulb, CO2, modulating/2-position, etc.)
Additional Energy Management functions are resident at SI
Additional Programming Functions
DDC Loops (P, PI, PID) No
Automatic PID Tuning Feature No
Automatical-Dial Alarm Support No
Does controller perform multiple retries and buffer/store alarm until connection is made? No
Are multiple destinations possible? No
Upon controller power loss or hardware failure:
Are network communications affected? No
Is loss recognized on/by the network and alarm reported? Yes; when part of the Network it is reported to Tracker.
DO and AO response?
Outputs fail to a user pre-specified position
Outputs fail to a normal (unpowered) position
Outputs fail to last position
Volatile memory functions?
Retained for life of backup battery
Upon restoration of power does the controller:
Auto-reboot without operator intervention? Yes
Automatically reset/synchronize the clock? Yes, if operator display is present.
Update all monitored functions? Yes
Generate an alarm if backup battery is dead? N.A.
Upon network or communications failure does controller:
Continue to operate standalone? Yes
Operate with last global settings or user-specified value? N.A.
Do broken network segments continue to communicate within the remaining segment?
(Note: May depend on proper termination of segments for higher speed networks.)
Does network automatically reconfigure upon restoration? Yes
Does network store 'loss of communications' alarm with time of event? Yes
