Product Overview
High Speed Electronic Actuation
The High speed electronic actuator assembly consists of two parts, the electronic actuator
and the interface board. The actuator is connected to the exhaust flow control device in the
fume hood exhaust duct. The electronic actuator assembly is used because of its small size
and quick response time.
CAUTION:
Due to the design parameters and the response time required by the Fume Hood
Controller, the assembly must be replaced with the same part or a Siemens
Building Technologies, Inc. approved equivalent. Any modifications that are not
approved may affect the safety and performance of the Fume Hood Controller.

Low Speed Electronic Actuation
Alternately, when speed of response is not an issue, slower speed electronic actuation may
be used. This can be used when the change-of-state between High and Low can take place
in 15 seconds or more.
Low Speed Actuator (GMA13x).
Pneumatic Actuation
The pneumatic actuator is connected to an exhaust flow control device in the fume hood
exhaust duct. The standard pneumatic actuator (Figure 8) used with the Fume Hood
Controller is the No. 3 unit. The No. 3 actuator is used because of its small size and quick
response time. The actuator has a deep drawn aluminum housing, a rubber diaphragm, and
a spring return rated at 8 to 13 psi. Pneumatic actuation requires two components, the
actuator and the transducer (AO-P module).
WARNING:
Due to the design, parameters and the response times required by the
Fume Hood Controller, the No. 3 actuator always must be replaced
with the same part or a Siemens Building Technologies, Inc. approved
equivalent. Any modifications that are not approved may affect the
safety and performance of the Fume Hood Controller.

Analog Output-Pneumatic (AO-P) Module
The Analog Output-Pneumatic (AO-P) Module is an electric-to-pneumatic interface between
the Fume Hood Controller and the pneumatic actuator. The AO-P Module translates electrical
signals from the Fume Hood Controller into pneumatic signals that command the actuator.
The AO-P Module consists of two industrial grade solenoids that supply or bleed air to the
actuator by using a pulse modulation technique. See Figure 9. Minimum air supply to the AOP Module is 18 psi and the maximum is 30 psi. The valves are rated for 24 Vac.

Fume Hood Controller Owner's Manual
NOTE:
While the pneumatic actuator is being commanded, you may hear a hissing or
clicking sound coming from the AO-P module. This is due to the movement of the
air valves and the bleeding of air from the actuator. This is normal operation.
Differential Pressure Transmitter
The differential pressure transmitter is used to send a signal that represents the velocity of air
in the duct to the controller. The differential pressure transmitter receives the velocity
pressure signal from the airflow sensor (orifice plate). The transmitter is a dead-end device
which prevents the exhausted fume hood air from flowing through the transmitter or the
sensor.
NOTE:
In accordance with laboratory ventilation safety standards and regulatory
agencies, the performance of the fume hood should be checked annually, as a
minimum, to ensure continued safe and proper operation. Consult Siemens
Building Technologies for more information about a comprehensive laboratory
ventilation system evaluation and associated test programs.
Airflow Sensor
Airflow sensors are used in conjunction with the differential pressure transmitter. The airflow
sensor senses an average air velocity across the duct section. Using the average air velocity
and the duct area, the controller calculates the airflow.
CAUTION:
Ensure that the sensor and exhaust system materials match the fume hood usage.
Exhausting corrosive fumes may corrode the sensor and exhaust system.
Cables
The Fume Hood Controller connects to the portable operator's terminal with the controller
interface cable (P/N 540-143). This cable has an RJ-11 connector (similar to a phone jack)
on one end, and a larger, 9-pin connector on the other end. The RJ-11 connector plugs into
the bottom of the ODP. For more information, see the Fume Hood Controller Operator
Display Panel User's Card (125-1976). The 9-pin connector plugs in the communication port
of the portable operator's terminal. For more cable information, contact your local Siemens
Building Technologies, Inc. representative.

Applications
Fume Hood Controller: 2-Position Constant Volume
Application 940 is designed for use with a constant volume or two-position fume hood in a
manifold fume hood exhaust system. In this application, two position fume hoods have an
individual exhaust damper or venturi air valve connected to a central fan. The application
modulates the exhaust flow control device to maintain a high or low flow setpoint based on
inputs from the ODP (Operators Display Panel), Digital Input, an exhaust airflow sensor, and
the controller setpoints (Figure 10).
Figure 10. Application 940 Control Drawing shown using a damper.
Siemens Building Technologies, Inc.

Fume Hood Controller Owner's Manual
Basic Operation
The Fume Hood Controller provides Direct Digital Control (DDC) technology for controlling
fume hood face velocities in a manifolded fume hood exhaust system.
High and Low Exhaust Flow Control
The Fume Hood Controller can operate at two different setpoints, described as HI flow and
LOW flow setpoints. The low setpoint can be set to zero to send the controller into an OFF
mode. The OFF mode shuts off the flow alarms and closes the exhaust flow control device
and allows the controller to go into a standby mode of operation.
The Operators Display Panel (ODP) can display HI/LOW setpoint or output exhaust flow in
CFM. Due to display limits, the actual number displayed is CFM divided by 10.
Control Loops
The PID loop controls the exhaust flow control device based on the values of the exhaust
flow and the flow setpoint. The loop output controls the supply and exhaust through a time
modulation scheme. The control loopout ranges from -100 to 100%.
•
-100% is the maximum supply that closes the exhaust flow control device at full
speed.
•
0% holds the exhaust flow control device at its current position.
•
100% is the maximum exhaust that opens the exhaust flow control device at full
speed.
Electronic
The controller sends a separate signal to each of the two inputs that reside on the AO-E
module. For values of 100% to 0%, the controller sends a decreasing percentage of the full
signal length to the retract input. For values of 0% to -100%, the controller sends an
increasing percentage of the full signal to the extend input.
Pneumatic
The controller sends a separate signal to each of the two solenoids that reside on the AO–P
module. For values of 100% to 0%, the controller sends a decreasing percentage of the full
signal length to the exhaust solenoid. For values of 0% to -100%, the controller sends an
increasing percentage of the full signal length to the supply solenoid.
Calibration
Air Velocity Sensor - Calibration of the controller's air velocity sensor is periodically required
to maintain accurate air velocity readings.
12
Siemens Building Technologies, Inc.
Applications
DO3 Output Functionality
DO3 is designed to operate in two different modes. DO3 can follow the alarm status of the
controller by turning ON during alarm conditions and OFF during normal operation; or DO3
can follow the HI.LOW setpoint status of the controller by turning ON while the controller is in
LOW flow operation and OFF when the controller is in HI flow operation.
Warning and Alarm Features
The Fume Hood Controller indicates fume hood performance problems at two levels,
WARNING and ALARM. The two levels are available so different procedures can be
instituted for each condition. Both levels are indicated locally at the ODP and, if connected to
a field panel, centrally through the APOGEE alarm features.
NOTE:
Central alarms only work if the field panel is specifically set up to receive and
distribute the alarm information. Consult your local Siemens Building
Technologies, Inc. representative for more information on central alarming.
Warning Operation
The Fume Hood Controller announces warning conditions at the ODP. The ODP indicates a
warning condition by illuminating the yellow LED.
If the fume hood is operating and the exhaust volume exceeds the high or low warning limit
for a period greater than the delay timer a warning condition occurs.
For more information on ODP messages, see the Fume Hood Controller Operator Display
Panel User's Card (125-1976).
Alarm Operation
The Fume Hood Controller announces alarm conditions at the ODP. The ODP indicates an
alarm condition in the following three ways:
•
The red LED illuminates.
•
The horn sounds.
•
A text message indicating the specific alarm condition displays.
If the fume hood exhaust flow exceeds the high or low alarm limit for a period greater than
the delay timer an alarm condition occurs. The text message FLO HI or FLO LO displays.
The fume hood operator may silence the horn for the current alarm event by pressing the
Horn Silence button.
Siemens Building Technologies, Inc.
13
Fume Hood Controller Owner's Manual
Alarm Strategies
One approach is to use the ALARMs to indicate a condition that requires immediate attention
and the WARNINGs to indicate a condition that may require attention but is not urgent. In that
case, the alarm limits would be set to indicate that it is unsafe to work at the fume hood. The
warning limits would be set at a level that is safe, but indicates that the system may not be
operating correctly. These values should be selected by the person responsible for laboratory
safety.
The delay timer is adjustable and should be selected with safety in mind. Laboratory safety
procedures will not be effective if there are numerous nuisance alarms. The delay timer
should be set at a sufficiently large interval to prevent nuisance alarms. However, if the delay
timer interval is excessively large, there is a risk of having a laboratory worker standing in
front of an ineffective fume hood for a prolonged period. The delay timer interval should be
selected by the laboratory safety officer with the above considerations in mind.
Emergency Purge Feature
Under certain emergency conditions, such as a spill in the fume hood, it may be necessary to
purge the air from the fume hood. The Emergency Purge sequence enables the fume hood
user to override normal airflow setpoint and temporarily increase the airflow beyond the value
needed to maintain the airflow setpoint.
The Emergency Purge overrides any other control mode in the Fume Hood Controller and
has two modes of operation; maximum purge, and controlled purge.
The maximum purge moves the exhaust airflow control device to full open and holds it there
regardless of airflow. This mode has the advantage of providing immediate expulsion of the
contaminating agent, but may cause airflow problems in the fume hood and reduce the
airflow capacity at other fume hoods.
The controlled purge continues to modulate the exhaust airflow control device and controls
the airflow, but at a higher than normal level.
The Fume Hood Controller can be set up to purge in either mode or to start in maximum
purge and then switch to a controlled purge after an adjustable amount of time.
Emergency Purge Operation
The Emergency Purge sequence is initiated by pressing the Emergency Purge button on the
ODP. When the Emergency Purge button is pressed, the fume hood will go to the maximum
purge for the time selected in the emergency timer. After the emergency timer elapses, the
Fume Hood Controller will begin actively controlling the airflow, but at an increased setpoint.
The Emergency Purge sequence is canceled by pressing the Emergency Purge button a
second time. The ODP indicates an Emergency Purge sequence in three ways:
14
•
The red LED illuminates.
•
The horn sounds.
•
EMERGENCY PURGE and EEE display.
Siemens Building Technologies, Inc.
Applications
The fume hood operator may silence the horn by pressing the Horn Silence button on the
ODP without affecting the Emergency Purge sequence.
In addition to the ODP indicators, the emergency alarm point will toggle to ON and will remain
ON until the sequence is canceled. If the emergency alarm is alarmable in the field panel, the
condition can be indicated at selected terminals if the APOGEE Automation System is set up
for it.
Emergency Purge Strategies
The use of the Emergency Purge button is determined by the work practices established by
the laboratory safety officer. As a general rule, there are two groups that should be aware of
the use of the Emergency Purge button: the laboratory worker and the laboratory safety
officer.
Laboratory worker – In most cases, the laboratory worker uses the Emergency Purge
button to increase the fume hood airflow to minimize a dangerous situation.
The Emergency Purge button should not be used as a way to work around the established
face velocity and minimum flow setpoints in an effort to make the fume hood "even safer".
Laboratory safety officer – For the safety department personnel to use the Emergency
Purge feature effectively, they must select the purge mode that best suits their needs. The
selection may be based on knowledge of industrial hygiene, the chemicals used in the
laboratory, the organization's emergency procedures, and the capacity of the central exhaust
system.
If the maximum purge mode is selected, the emergency timer and the emergency setpoint to
their maximum values.
If the controlled purge mode is selected, the emergency timer is set to 0. Select the value for
the emergency setpoint to indicate how much you want the emergency airflow to increase
over the normal airflow. For example, if your emergency procedures call for closing the fume
hood and starting the emergency purge, decide how much airflow you want compared to the
minimum airflow. If you want twice as much airflow, set the emergency setpoint to 200%; if
you want a 50% increase, set the emergency setpoint to 150%. If you do not intend to have
the laboratory worker close the fume hood, then select the face velocity you want the fume
hood to control to in an emergency. Compare that value to the normal face velocity setpoint
and calculate the emergency setpoint in percent.
NOTE:
During a controlled purge, the increased airflow called for in the controlled purge
may exceed the range of the flow sensor. If so, the system cannot accurately
regulate the airflow and the controller will open the exhaust flow control device
100%.
If a sequence initially employing maximum purge with a switch to controlled purge is desired,
set the emergency setpoint as described for the controlled purge. Select a value for the
emergency timer to tell the system how long to leave the exhaust flow control device open
before switching to controlled purge. Base this on the types of accidents anticipated, the
reason you require a maximum purge, and the reason you want to switch it down to a
controlled purge.
Siemens Building Technologies, Inc.
15
Fume Hood Controller Owner's Manual
In addition to setting up the purge sequence to effectively handle the exhaust needs,
decisions must be made on how to use the information available at the central reporting
station. Consult your local Siemens Building Technologies, Inc. representative for more
information on central reporting and trending of emergency purge information.
Fail-safe Operation
If the Fume Hood Controller or one of its accessories fails, then a failure mode sequence will
be initiated.
Fume Hood Controller
If the Fume Hood Controller power fails, the exhaust flow control device will go to the full
open position. Since there would be no power to the controller, no LEDs or display will be
available on the ODP.
NOTE:
If the power fails to both the exhaust fan and the controller, there will be no
indication except for the absence of the noise that the air makes during
normal operation.
ODP
If the ODP fails, the controller will continue to control the fume hood face velocity. However,
no display or audible alarming will be available.
Differential Pressure Transmitter
If the differential pressure transmitter fails, the controller will control the exhaust flow control
device to the fully open position. The ODP will display FFF and GENERAL FAILURE.
Electronic Actuator Assembly
If the electronic actuator or interface board fails then alarms are displayed on the ODP
indicating unsafe operating conditions.
Pneumatic Actuator
If the actuator fails due to a leak, then the exhaust flow control device will go to the full open
position. Alarms will be displayed on the ODP indicating unsafe operating conditions.
AO-P Module
If the AO-P module fails, alarms will be displayed on the ODP indicating unsafe operating
conditions.

Troubleshooting
This chapter describes corrective measures you can take should you encounter a problem
when using the Fume Hood Controller. For issues not covered in this section, contact your
local Siemens Building Technologies, Inc. representative.
You are not required to do any controller troubleshooting. Contact your local Siemens
Building Technologies, Inc. representative if a problem occurs or you have any questions
about the controller.
NOTE:
When troubleshooting, record what the problem is and what actions were
performed immediately before the problem occurred. Being able to describe the
problem in detail is important should you need assistance from your local
Siemens Building Technologies, Inc. representative.
Basic Service Information
Always remove power to the controller when installing or replacing it. Since the controller
does not have a power switch, the recommended method of removing power to a locally
powered controller is to turn OFF the power to the 24 Vac transformer. The recommended
method of removing power to a controller on a power cable (even to service a single
controller) is to turn OFF the power at the transformer.
NOTE:
When removing power to a controller to perform maintenance or service, make
sure that the person in charge of the facility is aware of this and that appropriate
steps are taken to keep the building in control.
Never remove the cover from the controller. There are no serviceable parts inside. If a
problem is found with a controller, contact your local Siemens Building Technologies
representative for replacement. An anti-static wrist strap is recommended when installing or
replacing controllers.
Preventive Maintenance
Most controller components are designed so that, under normal circumstances, they do not
require preventive maintenance. However, devices that are exposed to dusty or dirty
environments may require periodic cleaning to function properly. To ensure optimum system
performance, it is recommended that you discuss the operating requirements of your
application with your Siemens Building Technologies, Inc. representative to determine the
best service support program for your needs.

Troubleshooting
Safety Features
The controller board stores the controller's address, applications, and point values. In the
event of a power failure or a reset, these values are retrieved from the controller’s permanent
memory and are used by the controller unless overridden by a field panel.
Controller LEDs
To determine if the controller is powered up and working, verify that the Basic Sanity Test
(BST) Light Emitting Diode (LED) is flashing ON/OFF once per second. The controller
contains six LEDs located on the circuit board. See the Controller LED lndicators section of
Chapter 1, Product Overview for more information about LEDs.
NOTE:
The TX and RX LEDs indicate communication over the FLN.
