Control Temperature Setpoints
The controller maintains a specified temperature setpoint based on Day/Night mode, the
heating/cooling mode, or the setpoint dial (if used).
Day/Night Mode
The controller maintains the specified day setpoint temperature during daytime hours and the
specified night setpoint at night.
Day Heating Operation
The controller maintains the room temperature by resetting the unit ventilator's discharge
temperature setpoint (2281/2284), modulating the available coil control device, controlling
auxiliary radiation (if provided), positioning the outdoor air or face-bypass damper.
6
Siemens Building Technologies,Inc.
Basic Operation
Day Cooling Operation
The controller maintains the room temperature by resetting the unit ventilator's discharge
temperature setpoint (2281), running the face-bypass damper at full all the time, modulating
or cycling the available coil control device (DX coil – 2284) or positioning the outdoor air
damper.
Night Heating Operation
The controller maintains the room temperature turning the fan and heating on and off as
required.
Night Cooling Operation
The controller maintains the room temperature by turning the fan and cooling on and off as
required.
Night Mode Override Switch
If the RTS has an override switch, it can be used to command the controller into day mode
for an adjustable amount of time. This only affects a controller in night mode.
Valve Configuration
2-Pipe Heating/Cooling – units with one valve, controlling a coil that may have hot water or
chilled water (depending on the season).
4-Pipe Heating or Cooling – units that are heating or cooling only, units with a heating and a
cooling coil, units with electric heating, etc.
Heating and Cooling Switchover
NOTE:
For 2-pipe heating/cooling (Application 2281 and 2283), a field panel must
control the switchover between heating and cooling.
The heating/cooling switchover determines whether the controller is in heating or cooling
mode by monitoring the room temperature and the demand for heating and cooling (as
determined by the temperature control loops).
Control Loops
Room Loop – uses the control setpoint and room temperature to set the discharge setpoint
between the minimum and maximum discharge temperature (2281, 2284).
Heating Loop – maintains room temperature setpoint by turning valves and/or electric heat
stages on and off.
Siemens Building Technologies, Inc.
7
APOGEE Unit Vent Controller⎯0 to 10 V Output Owner’s Manual
Cooling Loop – maintains room temperature setpoint by turning valves on and off and using
free cooling (mixed air control) when available.
Auxiliary Loop – modulates the auxiliary loop using the auxiliary setpoint and discharge
setpoint (2284).
Mixed Air Loop – modulates the mixed air loop using the mixed air setpoint and mixed air
temperature (2283).
DX Loop – modulates the cooling loop using the control setpoint and room temperature
(2284).
Morning Warm-up/Cool-down
Morning warm-up or cool-down occurs after the controller switches from night mode to day
mode, upon power-up, or if the controller is reset. During morning warm-up or cool-down, the
controller provides maximum heating or cooling with the outdoor air damper closed until the
temperature of the space reaches setpoint.
ON/OFF Coil Valve Control
When a face-bypass configuration is used, the coils may be turned on and off with twoposition valves using DOs.
Electric Heat
If electric heat is used, it is controlled as follows:
HTG OUTPUT
(Point 60)
Stage 1
Stage 2
Stage 3
0% to 33%
ON
OFF
OFF
34% to 66%
ON
ON
OFF
67% to 100%
ON
ON
ON
In addition, no stage may turn on or off until the time delay has elapsed. Stage one will
always be the first stage to turn on and the last stage to turn off.
Fan Operation
Day Mode – The fan is on all the time.
Night Mode – The fan only operates when required for heating or cooling.
Fail-safe Operation
A low temperature detection thermostat (LTDT) can be used to signal the controller when the
temperature drops below the low temperature limit.
8
Siemens Building Technologies. Inc.
Basic Operation
If the room temperature sensor input to the Unit Vent Controller fails or the LTDT equals ON,
the controller goes through the following shutdown sequence:
•
Outdoor air damper is closed.
•
Heating is full ON (except electric, which is OFF).
•
Cooling is full OFF.
•
Face-bypass damper is open to face.
•
Fan is OFF.
•
Auxiliary radiation is OFF.
•
Two-position heating valve actuator is open.
•
Two -position cooling valve actuator is closed.
NOTE:
DO 2 is not commanded by the fail-safe mode; all other DOs can be affected.
If the discharge air temperature sensor fails, the following conditions occur:
•
If the last valid value is greater than 150 degrees, the heat is turned off, the outdoor
air damper is closed and the fan is turned on.
•
If the sensor does not come back within 10 minutes or if the last valid value is less
than 150 degrees, the controller shuts down.
If a failed sensor returns or if the LTDT turns off, normal control resumes.
Analog and digital outputs cannot be commanded when the controller is in fail-safe mode;
however, failed points may be overridden, allowing the controller to return from fail-safe
mode. In this instance, room temperature control is not possible.

The use of a low temperature detection thermostat (LTDT) is strongly
recommended for hot water and steam systems.
This application controls room temperature by directly modulating the coil control device(s)
and the outdoor air damper according to the schedule defined by Nesbitt Cycle W. The freecooling/economizer function is turned on and off by the field panel using FREE CLG (Point
23). The unit ventilator fan is also controlled in this application.

APOGEE Unit Vent Controller⎯0 to 10 V Output Owner’s Manual
Application 2299 – Slave Mode
Overview
Application 2299 is the slave mode application for the Unit Vent Controller—0 - 10V Output
(P/N 540-509). Slave mode is the default application that comes up when power is first
applied to the controller. Slave mode provides no control. Its purpose is to allow the operator
to perform equipment checkout before a control application is put into effect and to set some
basic controller parameters (CTLR ADDRESS, APPLICATION, etc.).
NOTE:
Slave mode provides no control.
The input labeled "DI3/AI3" on the controller can be used either as a DI point or as an Analog
Input (AI) point, but not both at the same time.

Troubleshooting
Overview
This chapter describes corrective measures you can take should you encounter a problem
when using a Unit Vent Controller.
You are not required to do any controller troubleshooting. You may want to contact your local
Siemens Building Technologies 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 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.

Ordering Replacement Parts
If a controller is not operating correctly, order a new controller. The product number for
ordering a replacement controller is the controller product number preceded by an "R". The
replacement product numbers for accessories are the same as new product numbers:
Unit Vent Controller – 0 to 10V Output
CE Compliant Unit Vent Controller – 0 to 10V Output
540-509
550-509
Preventive Maintenance
Most controller components are designed so that, under normal circumstances, they do not
require preventive maintenance. Periodic inspections, voltage checks, and point checks are
normally not required. The controller's rugged design makes most preventive maintenance
unnecessary. However, devices that are exposed to dusty or dirty environments may require
periodic cleaning to function properly.
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. If one of the
following conditions occurs, the controller will activate safety features present in its fail-safe
mode.
•
Sensor failure.
•
Loss of power. Upon controller power loss, communication with the controller is also
lost. The controller will appear as failed (*F*) at the 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 eleven LEDs located on the circuit board. See the Controller LED indicators section
of Chapter 1, Product Overview for more information about LEDs.
NOTE:
32
The TX and RX LEDs indicate communication over the FLN.
