Introduction

INTRODUCTION
The Liebert iCOM offers the highest capabilities in unit control, communication and monitoring of
Liebert mission-critical cooling units.
Liebert iCOM may be used to combine multiple cooling units into a team that operates as a single
entity, enhancing the already-high performance and efficiency of Liebert’s units.
Liebert iCOM is available as a factory-installed assembly or may be retrofitted on existing products
with SM, AM or AG controls. Large graphic display wall-mount versions of the control are available
for remote operation and monitoring of cooling units.
1.1
Features
Large and Small Displays
The Liebert iCOM is available with either a large or small liquid crystal display.
• The Liebert iCOM with small display has a 128 x 64 dot matrix screen that simultaneously
shows two menu icons, along with descriptive text. This display is capable of controlling only the
unit it is directly connected to.
• The Liebert iCOM with large display has a 320 x 240 dot matrix screen that shows up to 16
menu icons at a time, as well as descriptive text. This display can be used to control a single
cooling unit or any cooling unit on a network, regardless of how it is connected—either integrated
into a cooling unit or simply connected to the network and mounted remotely.
Liebert iCOM’s menu-driven display is used for all programming functions on each connected cooling
unit. The Status menu shows the status of the conditioned space, such as room temperature and
humidity, temperature and humidity setpoints, alarm status and settings, event histories and the
current time.

Liebert iCOM Display Components and Functions
2.1
Navigating Through the Liebert iCOM Menus
Liebert iCOM shows icons and text for monitoring and controlling your Liebert cooling units or
network of cooling units. The number of icons and amount of text shown depends on the display size.
2.1.1
Control Interface
When the buttons on the Liebert iCOM have not been pressed for a short period, the display backlight
turns off. Pressing any key will turn the backlight on (wake up the screen) and display the Status
menu of the last cooling unit viewed. The Status menu will show the cooling unit’s operational
mode(s), return air temperature and humidity readings, temperature and humidity setpoints and any
active alarm conditions.
If the cooling unit has a large display and is not on a network, or if the unit has a small display,
whether it is networked or stand-alone, the Status menu will display only that cooling unit’s
information. Any large display that is connected to a network can be used to view any cooling unit on
the network or show an average view of the entire system of cooling units.
The Liebert iCOM has three main menus; User, Service and Advanced.
The User menu contains the most frequently used features, settings and status information. The
Service menu contains settings and features used to set up unit communications and for unit
maintenance. The Advanced menu contains settings used to set up the unit at the factory.
NOTE
Menu settings may be viewed without a password, but changing settings requires a password.
The password for the User menu is 1490. The password for Service menu is 5010. For details
on entering a password, see Entering a Password on page 6
2.1.2
Accessing Submenus
While the display is at unit status screen, press either the Enter or down arrow key to display the
User menu. To access the Service menu, press the right arrow key. Pressing the right arrow key again
will display the Advanced menu. For navigating to the sub-menus from each main menu, press Enter
key and then the appropriate arrow key. Pressing the Enter key again to access the menu items.

Liebert iCOM Display Components and Functions
Accessing Submenus on Small Displays
For navigating to submenus while at the main menu (User, Service or Advanced), use the up and
down arrow keys to scroll through the icons page-by-page. To scroll through the icons one-by-one,
press the enter key and then use the up and down arrow keys. With the desired icon highlighted,
press the enter key to enter that submenu. Once in a Submenu, a list of menu items, each with its
associated parameter, is displayed.
Press the enter key and use the up and down arrow keys to navigate through the parameters one-byone. Pressing the Esc key will go back a level. Figure 5 shows the Liebert iCOM menus for a small
display.
Accessing Submenus on Large Displays
Press the enter key from the main iCOM display to access the User, Service and Advanced menus.
Then use the left / right arrows to move among the User, Service and Advanced menus. Press the
enter key to highlight the first icon. Use the arrow keys to navigate through the icons. With the
desired icon highlighted, press the enter key to enter that submenu. Once in a Submenu, a list of
parameters will be displayed.
The up and down arrow keys may be used to scroll through the parameters page-by-page if the
submenu has multiple pages. To scroll item-by-item, press the Enter key and then use the up and
down arrow keys. Using the right or left arrow keys on large displays attached to a network will
change the unit being viewed. Pressing the Esc key will go back a level. Figures 7 and 8 show the
Liebert iCOM menus for a stand-alone large display and for a networked large display, respectively.
NOTE
Settings are readable without a password, but changing settings requires a password.
2.1.3
Entering a Password
The password must be entered before any value of the menu item parameter can be changed. There
are three levels of password for preventing unauthorized changes. Entering the User menu password
allows the operator the ability to change the parameters in the User menu. The Service menu
password enables the operator to changes parameters in both Service and User. The Advanced menu
password allows the changes to be made in all parameters.
The User menu password is 1490; the Service menu password is 5010.
NOTE
Entering the Service menu password permits access to both the User and Service menus.
To enter a password:
1. Navigate to the menu that contains the parameter to be changed.
2. Select Password in the submenu by pressing the Enter key
3. Press the Enter key to move your cursor to the right side of the screen to select the question
marks.
4. Use the arrow keys to enter the numeral for the password’s first digit (the up arrow key moves
from 1 to the next digit).
5. Use the right arrow key to move to the next question mark and repeat Step 4 to enter all digits in
the password.
6. After entering the password, press enter.
If the password is correct, the Actual Level shown to the right of Password will change
from 0 to 1 or 2. The menu will remain locked if the password was incorrect.
NOTE
Returning to the Status menu will require re-entering a password to make changes.

Single Unit Functions
3.1.1
Unit/Fan Control
Start - Stop
The fan output is first activated when the unit is switched On. The unit can be switched On and Off
from two inputs:
• Remote Off - Remote shutdown terminals will turn off the connected unit thus displaying remote
off on the front display. This command can also be invoked from a BMS.
• Display Off - When a unit is turned off from the System Screen of a large display, Display OFF is
shown for unit status.
• Local OFF - When a unit is turned Off from the Unit Status Screen or small display, Local OFF is
shown for unit status.
Pressing the On/Off key on a small display will affect only the cooling unit it is mounted on,
regardless of whether the cooling unit is a stand-alone unit or part of a network. The small Liebert
iCOM display does not have access to the Unit-to-Unit network.
NOTE
Pressing the On/Off key on a large display of a stand-alone cooling unit will control
only that unit.
The effect of pressing the On/Off key on a large display connected to a network depends on the view:
System or Unit.
• In System view, pressing the On/Off key shows a warning asking for confirmation to shut down
the entire system.
• In Unit view, pressing the On/Off key affects only the unit being viewed, without a confirmation
request.
Each time a unit is powered on or off, an event is added to the Event Log in the User menu.
NOTE
Customer switches: remote On/Off (if used) and display On/Off switches are in series. A
cooling unit will start only if both switches are On; if one of these switches is Off, the unit will
stop. Safety devices within the unit are also in series and will shut the unit down if applicable.

Display On / Off
NOTE
If Remote On/Off is not used, a jumper is inserted to bypass the switch.
12
Operation
Autorestart
When input power returns after a power failure, the unit will return to its previous operating status:
On if it was On before the power failure, Off if it was Off.
When power returns, the autorestart time—time-selectable: Single Unit Auto Restart (Service Menu,
Options Setup)—will determine how quickly the unit restarts. If the units are on the same network,
the autorestart time runs in a loop, starting each unit in sequence, beginning with Unit # 1.
Loss of Power Alarm
A Loss of Power Alarm is activated when power is restored after an interruption. If acknowledged, the
alarm resets automatically after 30 minutes. This alarm can be set to different event types (Message,
Alarm or Warning) and can be disabled under menu item Loss of Power (Service Menu, Set Alarms).
NOTE
Loss of Power alarm will be activated only on units that had the fan switched On before power
was lost.
Fan Alarm / Fan Protection Settings
The fan operation is protected by two digital devices: motor protection (optional) and a differential
pressure switch. The motor protection monitors for main fan overload (Main Fan Overload alarm) or
EC fan fault and the differential pressure switch detects a loss of airflow. If either protection device is
activated after an adjustable time delay, an audible alarm occurs, an alarm relay activates and an
event is recorded in the event log (Main Fan Overload and Loss of Airflow in Service Menu, Set
Alarms).
The fan delay at the unit start is always five seconds shorter than the control delay (to avoid shortcycling components when the fan is not working).
There are two selection possibilities for both, Loss of Airflow and Main Fan Overload:
• Shutdown—stops the unit (intended for DX models).
• Disable—disables humidifying, heating and dehumidifying outputs; allows cooling and
free-cooling only (intended for chilled water models / external cooling).
NOTE
When the Main Fan Overload alarm is active, the Loss of Airflow alarm is masked out.
13
Operation
Chilled Water Units with Variable Fan Speed—EC or Variable Frequency Drives
Parameters related to VSD fan speed setting can be found in the Service Menu / Setpoints submenu
on page 5 of 6. This menu allows the cooling unit's fan motor speed to be configured and adjusted for a
variety of applications.
• Auto Operation: When set to Auto, the speed of the fan motor follows the position of the chilled
water valve based on predetermined logic for cooling and dehumidification operation. Auto
operation can be set with either return or supply air control. An exception is when the supply
sensor is set to Cooling Only. During this operation with the VSD Fanspeed set to Auto, the
chilled water valve is controlled by the supply sensor and the fanspeed is controlled by the return
sensor and its associated control mode settings.
• Manual Operation: When set to Manual, the speed of the fan motor follows user input as set
either locally at the Liebert iCOM display or remotely via Modbus communication, which works
in conjunction with an optional Liebert IntelliSlot® 485 card.
• Economy Operation (free-cool or dual-cool units only): When set to Economy, the speed of the
fan motor follows the Free Cooling or Dual Cool water valve. The fan speed output latches to
percentage value set at STD setpoint (Service Menu, Setpoints) when a compressor activates to
prevent the DX system from operating at low evaporating pressure, which might cause the coil to
freeze.
• Delta Operation: When set to Delta, the fan speed modulates in relation to two temperatures
that are read from a sensor board, which is optional. The sensor temperature readings will be
compared and a delta between the two sensors will be determined. The delta of the two sensors
will be compared to the fan speed delta setpoint and will determine the correct fan speed. This
control can be adjusted using the Fan Speed P-Band and the Fan Speed Integration to determine
the rate of change based on the sensor delta. Delta operation enhances air flow control when a
containment solution is being utilized. This is accomplished by maintaining the correct airflow
based on the inner and outer containment temperatures.
Additional fan speed configuration parameters include a fan speed filter and fan speed reposition
delay timer. These parameters allow fine tuning of the fan speed control and, except for setting to
Manual, are applicable to any other operation mode set in the VSD fan speed setting.
• The fan speed filter allows the fan to respond at a different rate depending on the location of the
control point within the proportional band.
Example: When the controlled temperature is near the setpoint or at conditions where the proportional band output is decreasing and approaching 0%, the fan speed change rates are proportionally decreased to avoid overshooting the controlled temperature. However, when the
temperature rises above the setpoint or at conditions where the proportional band output is
increasing, the fan speed change rates are proportionally increased.
• The fan speed reposition delay timer setting in the Liebert iCOM menu can be changed to
improve the fan operation stability if it is oscillating. The delay timer holds back the fan output
change until each delay period is reached if fan speed is decreasing. If fan speed is increasing,
then the delay timer has no effect.
NOTE
• The fan speed lower and upper limit settings are normally set at the factory.
• The standard fan speed control will be overridden during a call for Dehumidification. When
there is a call for Dehumidification, the fan speed will change to the VSD Setpoint Dehum
parameter found in the Service Menu, Setpoints.
• The standard fan speed control will be overridden during a call for Humidification or
Reheat. During a call for Humidification or Reheat, the fan speed will change to a higher
speed, which is set at the factory to eliminate the possibility of condensation or damage to the
unit.
14
Operation
VSD Setpoint (VSD Fan Speed Setting)
If the VSD Fan Speed Control (Service Menu, Setpoints) is set for Manual, the VSD Fan Speed
Setpoint (Service Menu, Setpoints) may be set for the desired speed of the variable speed motor.
Depending on the product control design, there may be an internal minimum speed, as defined by
that specific product operation, while the customer input may be set for 0-100%:
• Fan speed may be set locally at the unit using the Liebert iCOM display.
• Fan speed may be set remotely via a BMS signal (sent via Modbus using an optional Liebert
IntelliSlot 485 card), which then transmits to the unit local control.
3.1.2
General Compressor Requirements
Low-Pressure Time Delay
When the compressor starts, the low-pressure input is ignored for a selected period of time based on
the setting of the Low Pressure Alarm Delay (Service Menu, Options Setup). This time is usually set
to 3 minutes on air-cooled units, and to 0 or 1 minute on water cooled units. When this time is
expired, a second timer starts to operate if the low-pressure input is active. This second timer is active
during normal compressor operation to avoid compressor trips due to bubbles in the refrigerant or
other influences creating short trips of the low-pressure switch. The low-pressure device input is
ignored if the compressor is not operating. Exception: Pump Down (see Pump Down).
NOTE
Low-pressure condition could be read through contacts or through pressure transducers with
threshold setting.
Pump Down
Pump Down is applicable to compressorized systems if equipped for pump-down operation, which is
set at the factory. This operation prevents the compressor oil from being diluted with liquid
refrigerant to ensure that the compressor is properly lubricated for the next startup.
The Pump Down operation operates in the following manner:
Whenever the control determines that no more cooling is required and a compressor needs to be shut
off, the liquid line solenoid valve (LLSV) is closed (de-energized). The compressor will continue to
operate until the low suction pressure device (LPS or LPT) opens, which shuts off the compressor. If
the LP device does not open within a specified time, the LLSV is turned On, then back Off (the
assumption is that the LLSV is stuck). If, after three times, the LP device does not open, the
compressor and LLSV are locked off and an alarm “Pump Down not completed” will appear.
There is a re-pump down if the LP device opens again after the compressor has been already
stopped—a maximum of six re-pump-down cycles per hour are allowed. At the seventh request of repump down the alarm “Comp 1 Pumpdown Fail” or “Comp 2 Pumpdown Fail” will appear and the
compressor will be locked out.
Pump down is always performed loaded (for compressors with unloaders: unloaders off, digital scroll:
control solenoid valve disabled).
For digital scroll only: when pump down has finished successfully (LP device opened), pump down will
be continued for another half-second with the control solenoid valve energized.
15
Operation
High Pressure Alarm
When the compressor is initially activated, the system will be monitored for a high pressure situation.
When a high pressure situation is detected during the first 10 minutes of operation, the unit will
attempt to correct the problem several times without notification. If the unit is unsuccessful in
correcting the problem, an alarm will occur and the affected compressor will be locked off. If high head
pressure alarm trips three times in a rolling 12 hour period, the affected compressor will be locked off.
After the compressor has been running for 10 minutes, if a high head pressure situation is detected,
an alarm will occur and the affected compressor will be immediately locked off without the unit trying
to correct the problem.
Once the compressor is locked off, it will not come back on until main power is reset, or until the
HP Alarm Counters (Service Menu, Diagnostics) are reset to 0. Setting the counter to 0 will auto-reset
the alarm without the need of pressing the reset button on the display. Even if the pressure in the
system drops below the alarm point, the compressor will remain off until the system is reset.
NOTE
If the unit is equipped with manual reset high head pressure switches, or if the auto reset high
head pressure switches don’t reset, the compressor will not be turned back on, but there will be
a 30-second delay from when the high head pressure situation occurs and when the alarm is
annunciated.
Digital Scroll High Temperature
A protective maximum operating compressor temperature limit is imposed on units with digital scroll
compressor(s) with thermistor. If the digital scroll temperature reaches the maximum temperature
threshold, the compressor will be locked out for at least 30 minutes and an alarm will be annunciated.
If after 30 minutes the temperature has cooled to a safe operating temperature, the compressor will
resume operation.
Each time a high-temperature alarm occurs, HT 1 Alarm Counter (Service Menu, Diagnostics) or
HT 2 Alarm Counter (Service Menu, Diagnostics) is increased by one. Once these counters reach five
occurrences in a rolling four-hour period, the compressor will be locked out. The alarm can be reset
once the temperature returns to a safe level by:
1. Setting the counter back to 0 from the display and pressing the alarm reset button.
2. Shutting off power to the control board by turning the cooling unit's main power disconnect switch
Off and On.
3.1.3
Compressor Timing—Short-Cycle Protection
To help maximize the life of your compressor(s), there is a start-to-next start delay for each single
compressor.
NOTE
This delay may cause a short cycle if there is a very light room load. A short cycle means that
the compressor has cycled On and Off 10 times in the past hour. Should this occur, contact
your local Emerson representative to adjust the minimum compressor off delay.
16
Operation
3.1.4
Compressor Sequencing on Two-Compressor Units
Compressor Sequencing parameter (Service Menu, Options Setup) is intended to maintain equal run
times between compressors. This setting has three selection possibilities:
• Always use Compressor 1 as lead compressor
• Always use Compressor 2 as lead compressor
• Auto:
• First priority: if the safety timings are acceptable for only one compressor, then it is the next
to be started/stopped.
• If both compressors are off: the one with fewer working hours is the next to start.
• If both compressors are in operation: the one that has been operating longer since the last
start is the next to be stopped.
NOTE
The Auto setting attempts to maintain equal run times between compressors.
3.1.5
Motorized Ball Valve in Water-Cooled Units
On water/glycol-cooled units, discharge pressure is controlled by a motorized ball valve (MBV).
During unloaded operation, pressure changes during each digital cycle could cause a pressurecontrolled water regulating valve to open and close an excessive number of times. The motorized ball
valve is designed to maintain a consistent peak discharge pressure.
The control algorithm for the motorized ball valve uses an intelligent sampling rate and adjustable
pressure thresholds to reduce the number of times the valve opens and closes. The valve assembly
consists of the brass valve, linkage and actuator.
Each compressor has one motorized ball valve that is driven by the analog output of the Liebert iCOM
based on discharge pressure. If there is a call for cooling, the compressor start is delayed by a 30second timer. During this delay, the motorized ball valve is set to 50% open to allow fluid flow through
the unit condenser. The compressor will start after the 30-second timer elapses.
Motorized Ball Valve Manual Mode: (Service/Service) Manual operation can be selected to allow
service personnel to control the motorized ball valve from the Liebert iCOM.
When Auto BV Control is selected, the motorized ball valve functions as it would be during normal
system operation.
NOTE
Compressor operation will be delayed 30 seconds to allow the motorized ball valve to position
itself for initial startup.
When Manual BV Control is selected, the user must be careful in setting the MBV position because
the ball valves will remain in the position set in the Service menu until the control is switched back to
Auto or until a technician changes the valves to another manual position (the motorized ball valve in
manual mode can be set in 1% increments from fully closed to fully open). Low- or high-discharge
pressure may occur during this mode, depending on environmental conditions and the position of the
motorized ball valve.
The motorized ball valve is driven by a 2-10VDC proportional control signal: the valve is closed at
2VDC, 50% open at 6VDC and fully open at 10 VDC.
3.1.6
MBV Operation After Compressor is Turned Off
Once a compressor has stopped, the MBV control will continue to change the MBV position to
maintain system pressures for a maximum time of 10 minutes by following the Auto BV control
algorithm. When the 10-minute delay has expired or the discharge pressure is below its minimum
threshold the motorized ball valve will close until the next compressor activation.
17
Operation
3.1.7
Service Offset—Changing System Pressure Settings
The MBV control is set to maintain a system pressure specific to the particular type of cooling unit. A
properly trained and qualified technician can increase or decrease the pressure through the Ball
Valve Setpoint Offset found in the Service/Options Setup menu. The range is 0 to 50 PSI; the default
is 30 PSI.
NOTE
Adjusting this parameter will increase or decrease the operating compressor discharge
pressure by changing the targeted range of control. The discharge pressure is the peak pressure
of the digital cycle.
3.2
Temperature Control—Single Source Cooling (No Extra Cooling Coil)
3.2.1
Temperature Proportional Band
The control uses the temperature proportional band to determine which operation to perform
(cooling/heating) and how much capacity to provide. The Temperature Proportional Band is a userdefined range that is divided into two equal parts for cooling and heating. The Temperature Setpoint
is between these two equal parts.
An optional Temperature Deadband range can be defined, which is equally divided on either side of
the setpoint and separates the two halves of the proportional band. Figure 12 illustrates how the
temperature proportional band is evenly divided on either side of the temperature setpoint, with and
without a deadband.

The control works the same for both supply or return air control. When air temperature deviates from
the setpoint, the control will bring on cooling or heating. If the actual air temperature increases, the
control calls for 0% (none) to 100% (full) cooling capacity based on how much the temperature exceeds
the setpoint. If the return air temperature decreases, the control calls for 0% to -100% (none to full)
heating capacity based on how far the temperature is below the setpoint.
When the return air temperature reaches the end of the proportional band, either 100% or -100%, full
cooling or full heating capacity is provided. No operation is performed when a 0% call is calculated or
the temperature is within the deadband. The control varies the call for cooling and heating in 1%
increments as the air temperature moves through the proportional band halves.
The deadband range is used to widen the setpoint. When the air temperature falls within the
deadband, the control operates the same as if the temperature equaled the setpoint exactly. This
setting helps maximize component life by preventing excessive component cycling.
NOTE
The temperature deadband prevents small temperature changes from activating compressors
and valves.
18
Operation
The Temperature Proportional Band and Temperature Deadband parameters are in the Service
menu under the Setpoints submenu. The Temperature Setpoint parameter is in both the User Menu
and Service Menu under Setpoints.
There is a parameter AutoSet Enable (Service Menu, Setpoints), which automatically sets the
proportional bands for temperature and humidity, and both the integration time factors according to
the type of unit (chilled water, single or dual compressor).
NOTE
Before the proportional or integral setpoints can be changed, the Auto Set Enable must be
changed to NO.
3.2.2
Compressor Control
Depending on its type, a Liebert Precision Cooling unit may have one or two compressors with or
without unloaders or variable capacity.

One Single-Step Compressor Without Unloaders—One-Step
One single-step compressor, Cool 1, is started at 100% call for cooling from the temperature

• 2 stages: Both compressors, unloaded - Cool 2
• 3 stages: One compressor, loaded and one compressor, unloaded - Cool 3
• 4 stages: Both compressors, loaded - Cool 4

Operation
Digital Scroll Compressors
A digital scroll compressor can modulate its capacity anywhere between 10-100%. This variable
capacity modulation allows cooling units to control an environment more precisely.
Digital scroll capacity modulation is achieved by energizing and de-energizing a solenoid valve on the
compressor. When the solenoid valve is de-energized, the compressor capacity is 100%. When the
solenoid valve is energized, the compressor capacity is zero. Therefore, the capacity of the compressor
depends on how long the solenoid is de-energized for. If the solenoid is de-energized for 10-seconds,
then energized for 5 seconds during a 15-second cycle, the resulting capacity will be 66% as shown in
Figure 16.

compressor is started, the solenoid is energized longer than it is de-energized to match the call for
cooling. When the call for cooling increases to 100%, the solenoid is de-energized for the entire 15
second cycle.

3.2.3
Chilled Water Control
The chilled water control valve is adjusted proportionally as the temperature control varies the
requirement for cooling from 0% to 100%. A three-point actuator or motorized ball valve is used for
chilled water cooling, as well as free-cooling hot water or heating.
The three-point actuator is driven through two digital outputs: Open and Close. The control
determines the valve position by timing how long the open or closed signals have been active based on
the valve travel time set in the Service menu / Setup submenu. To determine the initial position of the
valve, the unit must perform a 3P Reset. The 3P Reset closes the valve for a time of 110% of the 3P
Actuator run time. This calibrates the valve with the controller and ensures that it is closed. A 3P
Reset is also performed if the fan is switched off for any reason (timer off, unit off, etc.). Once the reset
is performed.
The three-point actuator can be configured to utilize the pre-wired feedback signal provided from the
factory. Enabling the feedback signal is required when supply air control is being used with the 3P
valve to increase the valve’s position accuracy. Enabling the feedback signal will eliminate the need to
drive the valve closed after a loss of power or Unit Off command, decreasing the unit’s restart time.
Authorized Emerson personnel should use the following steps to enable the feedback signal:
1. The feedback on the control valve uses Analog Input 1.
2. Nothing can be connected to Analog Input 1 P11 pins 1 through 4.
3. Control board DIP switch SW2 Switch 1 must be ON, Switch 2 must be OFF.
Figure 18 DIP switch locations on Liebert iCOM control board
4. P68 must have a jumper placed between the top and bottom two pins on the left side and one
placed between the top and bottom pins on the right side, the two middle pins should be left
unconnected.
5. Go to Service/Diagnostics Service Menu and find S379. Set this option to Feedback and note that
S380 will go to Yes and S381 will go to Ongoing. If Feedback is already selected then go to line
S380 and manually select Yes. This means that the Liebert iCOM is doing auto calibration on the
valve using the feedback now available through the potentiometer. Wait for S381 to say Idle and
then the process is complete.
22
Operation
Chilled water units that contain a motorized ball valve(s) are connected to the control by an analog
output. The analog output is driven proportionally to the call for cooling as shown in Figure 19.
Larger chill water units may contain two motorized ball valves in which both valves are controlled in
parallel for cooling. The two valves may be set to Cascade mode for dehumidifying to minimize the
overcooling effect during dehumidification.
NOTE
Depending on the valve specifications, the voltage output may be a 0-10VDC or a 2-10VDC that
is scaled automatically within the control.

Temperature Control—Second Cooling Source
Certain cooling units are available with a second source of cooling within the unit. These typically are
compressorized models with an additional chilled water or free-cooling coil.
3.3.1
Differential Temperatures / Controls (Comparator Circuit)
Delta T (Temperature Difference) Between Room and Glycol
The comparator circuit determines if the glycol / chilled water temperature of the second cooling
source is low enough to provide at least partial cooling capacity. The comparator circuit has three
settings (DT Between Room / FC Type, [Service Menu, Setpoints]):
• Disabled
• Contact
• Value
The Disabled setting is for standard compressorized and chilled water units that do not have a second
cooling source. The Disabled setting can also be used to disable the second source of cooling.
The Contact setting is used when an external input is being used to determine when the second
cooling source is to be activated. The external control communicates to the Liebert unit via contact
closure.
• Closed = activate second cooling source control
• Open = deactivate second cooling source control
The Value setting is the factory default setting (8°F [4.4°C]) on free-cooling and dual cooling units. If
the temperature difference between the second source cooling fluid parameter, Freecooling Fluid
Temperature (User Menu, Sensor Data) and room air is equal to or greater than the adjustable DT
Between Room Air / FC Fluid (Service Menu, Setpoints) value, then the second source cooling fluid
will be used to provide at least partial cooling.
Sensors used for this delta T are: room/local sensor or the return air sensor; and the glycol sensor.
If this delta T is true, the following actions will be performed:
1. The Free-Cooling Status indication will show “On” instead of “Off”.
2. The compressor band will be shifted to the right by 100%, and within the first 100% the freecooling valve band will take place (see Figure 20).
The cooling portion of the proportional band is doubled, with the first half of the band controlling
the free-cooling valve and the second half controlling the compressors.

Increasing Temperature
Minimum Chilled Water Temperature—This feature permits the user to select the minimum
chilled water temperature that allows simultaneous operation of the second cooling source
(chilled-water valve control) and compressor control. This feature is enabled in the Service menu
under Setpoints, parameter Minimum CW Temp.
If the water temperature is below this minimum chilled water setpoint, parameter Minimum CW
Temp Value, (Service Menu, Setpoints), the control will operate ONLY the second cooling source
control, i.e., the compressor is locked out. Above the minimum chilled water setpoint, assuming the
fluid temperature is below the return room air temperature (delta T between room and glycol = true),
the control will operate the second cooling source control and compressor control simultaneously if
needed.
If the Minimum CW Temp is disabled, the second cooling source temperature is ignored, the control
will always operate the second cooling source and compressors simultaneously when the load requires
it.
GLYCOOL™ Cooling—Free-Cooling
When GLYCOOL cooling is available, the temperature control will calculate a total cooling
requirement of 200% rather than 100%. Assuming that full GLYCOOL capacity is available, the
GLYCOOL valve opens proportionally as the requirement for cooling rises from 0 to 100%. If more
than 100% cooling is required, then the compressors are activated their normal activation settings
within the 100-200% proportional band, 150% and 200%, respectively, on two-step systems (133%,
163%, 180% and 200% for a four-step system). If full GLYCOOL capacity is not available, then the
GLYCOOL valve will be opened proportionally over a cooling requirement band equal to the available
GLYCOOL capacity. The compressors would be activated when the GLYCOOL capacity is exceeded.
For example, if the GLYCOOL capacity is 60%, then the GLYCOOL valve would be fully open at 60%
cooling requirement. The compressors would continue to activate or deactivate based on shifting the
activation points from 0-100% to 100-200% in relation to the cooling output band within the 100-200%
proportional band. To reduce compressor cycling and prevent hunting, GLYCOOL capacity first
becomes available when the entering glycol temperature is at least 8°F (4.4°C) (22% capacity) below
the return air temperature, or 3°F (1.7°C) below the return air temperature for two hours. GLYCOOL
capacity is 100% when the glycol temperature is 25°F (13.9°C) below the return air temperature. The
system will continue to operate in Econ-O-Cool mode as necessary as long as the entering glycol
temperature remains at least 3°F (1.7°C) (0% capacity) below the return air temperature. If
GLYCOOL is not available, the compressors’ activation and deactivation points are not shifted as
explained above.
24
Operation
Dual Cooling Source
If dual cooling is available, the system operates in the same manner as a GLYCOOL system, except
that it is assumed that 100% chilled water capacity is available any time the chilled water
temperature is 3°F (1.7°C) below the return air temperature.
3.4
Temperature Control—Reheat
If the room air temperature becomes too cold, the control will call for heating. Heating mode is
controlled by the Temperature Proportional Band, explained in 3.2.1 - Temperature Proportional
Band.
3.4.1
Electric, Hot Gas and Hot Water Reheat
Different types of cooling units feature different types of standard electrical heating. Not all types
offer hot gas or hot water reheat. The number of electrical heating stages also varies—some types of
cooling units have single-stage electrical heating as standard and offer two-stage electrical heating as
an option. Other types feature three-stage heating as standard.
The Reheat Proportional Band is divided into three equal parts, each representing one reheat stage.
As the Temperature Proportional Band increases the call for heating from 0% to -100%, stages 1
through 3 are switched On, as shown in Figure 21. Your unit will have one of the nine reheat
configuration types shown in Table 4.

SCR Reheat
SCR reheat is a type of electric reheat that provides tighter temperature control than staged electric
reheat. SCR reheat capacity modulation is achieved by pulsing the reheat On and Off. Full capacity is
achieved by constantly energizing the reheat. Units equipped with SCR reheat can operate in Tight or
Standard mode. By default, cooling units with SCR reheat are factory-set to operate in Tight mode.
The mode of operation can be set by adjusting the SCR Control Type parameter (Service Menu,
Setpoints).
Tight Mode
In Tight mode, the compressors and reheats are operated at the same time to provide maximum
temperature control. The temperature deadband is set to zero at the factory. In a cooling unit with
SCR reheat and two single-step compressors, the first single-step compressor is started and full
reheat capacity is provided at 0% calculated output from the Temperature Proportional Band. As the
call for cooling increases from 0% to 100%, the reheat capacity is slowly reduced by pulsing the
reheat. At 100% call for cooling, the reheat is deactivated and the second single-step compressor is
started. As the call for cooling is reduced, the reheat capacity is slowly increased. When the call for
cooling returns to 0%, the second single-step compressor is deactivated.
If the Temperature Proportional Band calculates a call for heating from 0% to -200%, the first
single-step compressor remains activated and full reheat capacity is provided. Based on the factory
default settings, the first single-step compressor is deactivated when the control reaches -200% call
for heating. The compressor remains deactivated until the control calls for 0% heating. The
compressor activation and deactivation points can be adjusted in the Service menu under Setpoints.
Figure 22 illustrates how a cooling unit with two single-step compressors and SCR reheat operates
when the SCR Control Type is set to Tight mode.
NOTE
Some cooling units are not suited for a strict NO LOAD application. These cooling units
require a minimal load in the space. Consult factory for verification.

In Standard mode, the SCR reheat operates only when the Temperature Proportional Band calls for

the requirement for heating from 0% to -100%. Compressors operate only when there is a call for
cooling as described in 3.2.2 - Compressor Control.
Figure 23 illustrates how SCR reheat operates when SCR Control Type is set to Standard mode.

Using SCR in Standard mode in conjunction with variable cooling capacity (e.g., chilled water

3.5
Humidity Control
The control uses the humidity proportional band to determine which operation to perform
(dehumidification/humidification) and how much capacity to provide. The Humidity Proportional
Band is a user defined range that is divided into two equal parts for dehumidifying and humidifying.
The Humidity Setpoint is located between these two equal parts.
An optional Humidity Deadband range can be defined, which is equally divided on either side of the
setpoint and separates the two halves of the proportional band. Figure 24 illustrates how the humidity
proportional band is evenly divided on either side of the humidity setpoint, with and without a deadband.

Dehumidification
When the return air humidity deviates from the setpoint, either dehumidification or humidification is
activated. If the return air humidity increases, the control calls for 0% (none) to 100% (full)
dehumidifying capacity, based on how far the humidity penetrates the dehumidification portion of the
proportional band. If the return air humidity decreases, the control calls for 0% (none) to -100% (full)
humidifying capacity based on how far the humidity penetrates the humidification portion of the
proportional band.
27
Operation
When the return air humidity reaches the end of the proportional band, either 100% or -100%, full
dehumidification or full humidification capacity is provided. No operation is performed when a 0%
call is calculated. The control varies the call for dehumidifying and humidifying in 1% increments as
the return air humidity moves through the proportional band halves.
The deadband range is used to widen the setpoint. When the return air humidity falls within the
deadband, the control operates the same as if the humidity equaled the setpoint exactly. This setting
helps maximize component life by preventing excessive component cycling. The Humidity
Proportional Band and Humidity Deadband parameters are in the Service menu under the Setpoints
submenu. The Humidity Setpoint parameter is in both the User menu and Service menu under
Setpoints.
3.5.1
Humidification
Infrared Humidifier
There are two types of infrared humidifiers: small pan (IFS) and large pan (IFL). The operating mode
of each is similar, however, some of the variables or timings differ. The Liebert Challenger has
different fill times because of the size of the pan.
Infrared humidifiers are started at 100% humidification request, and stopped at 0%. Infrared
humidifiers cannot be driven in proportional mode.

Flush Rate
An autoflush system automatically controls a water makeup valve to maintain proper levels in the
infrared humidifier water pan during humidifier operation. If humidification is needed and 15 hours
have elapsed since the last time the humidifier was on, then the humidifier is not turned on until the
valve completes an initial fill of the humidifier pan. This pre-fill is about 30 seconds for a small pan
and 60 seconds for a large pan. The valve continues to fill and flush the pan for about 4-1/2 minutes
for a small pan or 7-1/2 minutes for a large pan. Pan size is selected based on unit specifications and
is preset at the factory.
During humidifier operation, with the flush rate set at the default of 150%, the valve is opened
periodically to add water to the pan (about 45 seconds every 7 minutes of humidifier operation for a
small pan, or 80 seconds every 10 minutes of operation for a large pan). This adds enough water to the
pan to cause about a third of the total water used to be flushed out of the overflow standpipe located
in the humidifier pan. This action helps to remove solids from the pan. The flush rate is adjustable
from 110% to 500% in 10% intervals. Default is 150%. If the water quality is poor, it may be desirable
to increase the water flushing action above the normal 150% rate. Also, if the supply water pressure
is low, the flush rate adjustment can be increased so that sufficient water level is maintained during
humidification. The flush rate parameter, Infrared Flush Rate (Service Menu, Options Setup), is
adjustable from 110%-500%.
External Humidifier Control—Optional
A factory-supplied option may be provided to allow a start-stop command to be sent to the control of a
remote-mounted humidifier.
Steam Generating Canister Humidifier
The Steam Generating Humidifier has its own separate control board that manages the canister and
steam rate. Liebert iCOM sends an On-Off command to relay a call for humidification.
28
Operation
3.5.2
Dehumidification
The Dehumidification Enable parameter (Service Menu, Options Setup) allows for enabling/disabling
the dehumidification function.
A call for dehumidification is calculated in the same way as a cooling request. The components
(valves, compressors) will follow this dehumidification request as soon as it is higher than the request
for cooling.
Dehumidification Low Limit
Low Limit 1 and Low Limit 2 are used to avoid overcooling a room during dehumidification. When a
low limit is reached, a compressor or the liquid cooling source that is used for dehumidification is
disabled. It is re-enabled when the return air temperature rises. The Low Limit 1 and 2 settings are
in the Service menu under Setpoints.
Low Limit 1: Low Limit 1 will disable one of two compressors for dehumidification. If only one
compressor is set for dehumidification, or if the dehumidification source is chilled water, this limit
will not be visible and will be inactive.
Low Limit 2: Low Limit 2 will disable both compressors for dehumidification. This limit will also
stop dehumidification in single compressor units and in chilled water units.
The limits become active when the return air temperature drops below a temperature value equal to
the sum of the temperature setpoint plus the value set on Low Limit 1 and 2 (the Low Limit settings
are negative values).
A dehumidification source is deactivated if the return air temperature drops below the Deactivation
Temperature, as in this example:
Temperature Setpoint:
70°F (21.1°C)
Low Limit Value:
-7°F (-3.8°C)
Deactivation Temperature:
63°F (17.2°C)
NOTE
If a cooling unit is equipped with SCR reheat and the SCR Control Type parameter is set to
Tight mode, then Low Limit 2 will be ignored, see 3.4 - Temperature Control—Reheat.
Dehumidification Compressor Quantity
Under Factory Settings in the Advanced menu there is an item called Dehumidification With Comp.
This will be set to either 1, 2, 1 or 2, or BOTH. This setting determines which compressors are used
for dehumidification. It also determines if Low Limit 1 will be available and impacts how the reheats
will operate during dehumidification. The Dehumidification With Comp field is set when the cooling
unit is built and should not be adjusted without first consulting the factory. Table 6 outlines which
Low Limit settings will be available, based on the Dehumidification With Comp selection.

Operation
Reheat During Dehumidification
Hot gas reheat or hot water reheat will start as described in 3.4 - Temperature Control—Reheat,
when the temperature decreases during the dehumidification process.
The parameter Electric Reheat Operation defines how the heaters react in case the temperature
decreases during the dehumidification process. This parameter does not impact SCR reheat
operation. The Electric Reheat Operation parameter is in the Advanced menu under Factory Settings
and should not be adjusted without factory approval.
No—No electric reheat allowed during dehumidification process.
Delayed—This setting applies only to two-compressor units with BOTH compressors selected for
dehumidification. The electric reheats are prevented from turning on until Low Limit 1 is reached. At
this condition, one stage of dehumidification is disabled and the reheats are activated. At Low
Limit 2, both stages of dehumidification are disabled. When Delayed is selected on units with a single
compressor selected for dehumidification (Dehumidification With Comp Setting: 1, 2, and 1 or 2), the
reheats will operate in the same manner as they do for Staged as described below. Delayed is the
default setting for Liebert DS units.
Staged—This setting applies to one or two compressor units. Electric heaters will stage as described
in 3.4.1 - Electric, Hot Gas and Hot Water Reheat. Staged is the default setting for Challenger
3000 units. On two compressor units with staged reheat selected and Dehumidification With Comp
set to BOTH, the control allows for operating two compressors and reheats simultaneously. It is
important that electrical service to the unit be sized and wired for this option if selected.
!
WARNING
If the electrical service to the unit is not properly sized, it could trip the building circuit
breakers (or fuses) or, in extreme cases, damage the building wiring. This Warning applies
only when the Dehumidification With Comp is set to BOTH and the Electric Reheat
Operation is set to Staged. Consult factory before making any changes to the default settings.
3.6
Control Types
3.6.1
Temperature and Humidity Control Types
The Liebert iCOM has three Temperature and Humidity Control Types:
• Proportional
• PI
• Intelligent
Each control type affects the timing and intensity of the cooling/heating and
humidifying/dehumidifying operations. The Control Type parameter is in the Service menu under
Setpoints.
Proportional—If Proportional Control is selected, the percent cooling/heating requirement is
determined by the difference between the air temperature sensor reading and the temperature
setpoint. As the air temperature rises above the temperature setpoint, the percent cooling required
increases proportionally (from 0 to 100%) over half the programmable temperature proportional band
(See 3.2.1 - Temperature Proportional Band). The percent heating requirement (0 to -100%) is
determined the same way when the air temperature falls below the setpoint. The
humidifying/dehumidifying operations are controlled in the same manner as the cooling/heating
operations; however, the humidity sensors, setpoints and proportional bands are utilized. The
Proportional control type is commonly selected on compressorized units.
PI—If PI Control is selected, the percent cooling/heating requirement is calculated by adding
together two individual terms, proportional and integral. The proportional term is calculated in a
manner similar to the previously described Proportional control. The integral term (sometimes called
“reset action”) is calculated by measuring how much and for how long the air temperature/humidity
has been above or below the setpoint. If the actual air temperature/humidity is above the setpoint, the
percent requirement is slowly but continuously increased until the total is sufficient to bring the
return room air back to the setpoint. This control type is commonly selected on free-cooling and dualcool units.
30
Operation
Intelligent—If Intelligent Control is selected, the air temperature/humidity is controlled at or near
the setpoint. The percent temperature/humidity adjustment required is calculated based on logic that
is programmed into the control. This logic simulates the actions that a human operator would take if
manually controlling the system. This control type is commonly selected on chilled water units.
NOTE
The actual air temperature sensor reading is always displayed on the Status menu. The value
displayed for the return air humidity sensor reading depends on the Humidity Sensor Control
Type (see 3.6.2 - Humidity Sensor Reading Control Types).
3.6.2
Humidity Sensor Reading Control Types
The Liebert iCOM has three humidity sensor control types: Relative, Compensated and Predictive.
The humidity sensor control adjusts how the Temperature and Humidity Control determines the
percent requirement for humidification/dehumidification. The humidity sensor control type
parameter, Humidity Control Type, is in both the User and Service menus under Setpoints.
Relative—The actual return air humidity sensor reading is sent to the Temperature and Humidity
Control to determine if and how much humidification/dehumidification is required. The actual return
air humidity reading is displayed on the Status menu. Unnecessary dehumidification can result when
overcooling occurs during a dehumidification cycle. This is because a higher than normal relative
humidity (RH) reading is caused by overcooling the room. This extends the dehumidification cycle.
Later, when the dehumidification ends and the return air temperature rises to the setpoint, the RH
reading falls. The final RH reading will then be lower than actually desired. If significant overcooling
occurred, the RH could be low enough to activate the humidifier.
Compensated—The actual return air humidity sensor reading is sent to the Temperature and
Humidity Control where the Humidity Setpoint is adjusted based on how much the return room air
temperature deviates from the desired temperature setpoint. The adjusted humidity setpoint is used
for humidification percent requirement determination. For every 1°C deviation from the temperature
setpoint the humidity setpoint is changed by 3% RH, inversely proportional: if the temperature
increases, the humidity setpoint is decreased, and vice versa. The recalculated humidity setpoint is
shown as the Actual Humidity Setpoint (User Menu, Sensor Data). As the humidity setpoint is
automatically adjusted, the high and low humidity setpoints (User Menu, Set Alarms) are adjusted
accordingly. The unadjusted humidity sensor reading is displayed on the Status menu.
Predictive—The actual return air humidity sensor reading is adjusted before it is sent to the
Temperature and Humidity Control. The humidity sensor reading is adjusted based on how much the
return room air temperature deviates from the desired temperature setpoint. For every 1°C deviation
from the temperature setpoint, the humidity sensor reading is changed by 3% RH, directly
proportional: if the temperature increases, the humidity reading is increased and vice versa. The
adjusted humidity sensor reading is displayed on the Status menu. Units are shipped from the factory
with Predictive humidity control set as default.
If Compensated or Predictive humidity sensor control is selected, overdehumidification is avoided.
When overcooling occurs, causing an increase in the relative humidity sensor reading, the humidity
control program predicts what the RH will be when the dehumidification cycle ends and return air
temperature returns to the setpoint. This allows the dehumidification cycle to end at the proper time.
The Compensated and Predictive humidity sensor control can reduce energy consumption by
minimizing compressor and reheat operation, and eliminating unnecessary humidifier operation.
NOTE
The historical humidity sensor graphs will display the real (unadjusted) sensor readings, no
matter which Humidity Control Sensor Type is selected. The graphical sensor data is in the
User menu under Graphics.

Supply Air
Temperature
Sensor
The Supply Air sensor can be used to control, limit or reference the discharge air temperature of the
cooling unit. The desired supply sensor operation can be selected in the Service, Setpoints menu. The
optional supply air temperature sensor allows use of either the Supply Air control or the Supply Limit
control. This sensor can be added to existing Liebert iCOMs by purchasing the supply sensor and
wiring harness. The supply air sensor must be connected to P13 pins 1 & 2. Contact your local
Emerson representative for pricing and installation.
• Supply Control: When the supply sensor is set to Control, the unit will control the amount of
cooling / heating being provided based on maintaining the discharge air temperature. The return
air sensor will still control the humidity of the room.
NOTE
If unit is equipped with a 3P actuator type valve then the valve must be changed to utilize the
feedback signal. See 3.2.3 - Chilled Water Control.
• Supply Limit: Chilled water units may be set up with the supply air sensor to maintain a
minimum air temperature under a raised floor to help prevent condensation. In order to avoid
supply temperatures that are too low, the Supply Limit can influence the opening of three-point
or analog actuators or the output of analog valves. The control compares the deviation from the
return air setpoint and the supply limit setpoint, and calculates the output to the actuator from
the smaller deviation.
• Cooling Only: When Cooling Only is selected, the cooling capacity of the system (valve or
compressor) is modulated based on the supply temperature, but allows the fan speed to be
controlled by a different sensor.
• Disable: Setting the supply sensor to Disable will allow the supply sensor to be monitored but
will not affect the control output of the unit.
NOTE
Supply control and limit are calculated on each unit, independent of the other sensor readings
on the network.
When the supply air sensor is set up for Supply control, additional Supply Air configuration
parameters (valve pulse, cooling filters and return compensation) can be used to further enhance
the supply air control.
32
Operation
• The valve pulse and cooling filter timer can be adjusted to prevent oscillating around the supply
setpoint and still allow for rapid valve adjustments to compensate for heat load changes. Contact
your local Liebert service personnel for adjustments.
• Return Compensation begins to increase the supply air setpoint when the return air decreases
below the return air setpoint.
Example
Setting the return compensation value in the Service, Setpoints menu to 5°F (2.7°C) will
increase the supply setpoint from 50°F to 55°F (10°C to12.8°C) when the return temperature is
at the low limit of the proportional band.
3.8
Liebert Smart Aisle Control
Liebert Smart Aisle Control allows the Liebert iCOM to manage airflow and cooling capacity
independently. This control mode allows the unit to adjust the airflow based on the cold aisle
temperature and the cooling output based on the discharge air temperature.
The Liebert Smart Aisle Control focuses on the inlet temperature to the racks. The Liebert Smart
Aisle Control also manages each component independently to manage the energy usage to provide the
correct amount of cooling. As the environment changes, the Liebert iCOM will adjust the airflow and
heat rejection based on the sensor readings at the discharge air temperature of the unit and the cold
aisle temperature.
The Liebert Smart Aisle Control also will automatically adjust cooling based on the configuration of
the cold aisle. The control can automatically adjust fan speed and cooling capacity when the cold aisle
configuration is changed. This includes no containment, end containment and total containment of
the cold aisle.
Currently, the Liebert Smart Aisle Control is limited to chilled water units with variable speed fans
and one cold aisle sensor per unit.

This can be done by:
• Moving the return temperature sensor from the cooling unit to the cold aisle with a longer
CAN Bus cable
OR BY
• Obtaining a remote temperature sensor and addressing it to operate as the return

• An additional supply temperature sensor placed under the raised floor.
33
Operation
3.8.2
Software Setup
To prepare the Liebert iCOM for Liebert Smart Aisle Control:
1. Set Service Menu parameter S146 (VSD fan speed) to Auto. This sets the cold aisle sensor to
control the fan speed.
The cold aisle temperature setpoint can be set on parameter S102 (Temperature Setpoint).
2. Set Service Menu parameter S124 (supply sensor) to Cooling Only. This sets the supply sensor to
control the chilled water valve.
The discharge temperature setpoint can be set on parameter Service Menu S125 (Supply
Setpoint).
3.9
Event Types and Properties
Liebert iCOM events are used to inform the user of cooling unit operational status. All events are
recorded in the Event Log, which is in the User Menu. The user can change the type (alarm, warn,
message) and time delay of some events and can also enable or disable some events. These event
settings are in the Service Menu under Set Alarms, pages 3 to 7. If an event has a safety function
(high pressure, low pressure, main fan overload, etc.) the safety function will be executed in any case,
independent of the selected event type or if enabled or disabled. The timing will function as set.
NOTE
Not all critical event properties can be adjusted.
Event Types
• Message: If this event occurs, it will only be entered into the event log.
• Warning: If this event occurs, a warning will be generated and entered into the event log. The
general alarm relay will be activated only if parameter Warning Activates Alarm Relay located in
the Service menu under Alarm Setup is set to Yes (Yes is the default setting from the factory)
• Alarm: If this event occurs, an alarm will be generated and entered into the event log. An alarm
does not necessarily switch off the whole cooling unit; it depends on which alarm occurs. If a
standby unit is set, any alarm will stop the faulty unit and ask the standby unit to start. Standby
activation is achieved on alarms ONLY; messages or warnings will not start the standby unit. For
more on standby units, see 4.0 - Teamwork.
Time Delay
Delays the event reaction once it is triggered. The time delay applies to safety functions and is
entered in seconds.
Enable or Disable
Disabled events do not show up in the event log, on the display or on monitoring devices. Also, the
common alarm relay will not be activated if a disabled alarm occurs. Safety functions, such as lockout
compressor in case of high pressure are still performed.
NOTE
Once an event, either Warn or Alarm type, has been set to Disable, the associated alarm
condition will not be annunciated. Disabled events may be reset only through the menu item
Reset Disabled Alarms.
NOTE
The value of the external delay includes the internal delay if it is greater than the internal
delay.
The minimum setting of the external delay is the value of the internal delay. This is valid only
for values marked with *.

3.9.1
High- and Low-Temperature and Humidity Events
High- and low-temperature and humidity alarms can be set for both the internal and optional
external sensors. If a sensor reading exceeds a preset threshold, a warning will appear. These
warnings are ignored after unit startup for a minimum of 1 minute. To increase the delay to warn, see
3.9 - Event Types and Properties. The threshold settings are located in both the User and Service
menus under Set Alarms.
To apply threshold limits on the internal cooling unit sensors, the Return Sensor Alarms must be
enabled. The high and low temperature and humidity internal sensor thresholds can then be set. To
apply threshold limits on the optional external sensors, the Sensor A alarms must be enabled. The
high and low temperature and humidity external sensor thresholds can then be set. If no external
sensors are connected to the unit, it is recommended that the Sensor A Alarms be disabled.
NOTE
The event messages will automatically reset if the temperature/humidity stays 1.8°F
(1°C)/ 2% RH below or above the threshold for one minute.
3.9.2
User Inputs
The user can connect and specify up to four inputs depending on unit configuration. The user inputs
are digital inputs that can provide information about an event associated with the unit or space. The
customer input configuration settings are in the Service menu under Set Alarms, Screen 2 of 7. The
choices for the customer inputs are shown in Table 8 along with their associated reaction. A terminal
strip is provided in the cooling unit to connect your contact closure to. You have the ability to set the
control to react on an open or closed contact.

Analog Inputs—Liebert CW and Liebert DS Air-Cooled Units
The Liebert iCOM allows an external sensor or analog device to be connected, scaled and viewed on
the Liebert iCOM large display for Liebert CW and Liebert DS air-cooled units only. These external
devices require optional analog input connections that can be installed on new units at the factory or
added to existing units in the field. The option provides the electrical connection from the Liebert
iCOM control board to the cooling unit’s field-wiring connection area. If a Liebert CW or Liebert DS
air-cooled unit is equipped with this option, then a 0-10VDC, 0-5VDC or a 4-20mA device can be
connected to terminals 41 and 42, 43 and 44, 45 and 46 or 47 and 48. See Table 9 for analog input
availability.

Liebert iCOM-DO
The Liebert iCOM-DO is an optional discrete output relay card that can be connected to the Liebert
iCOMs for providing dry alarm contact outputs for monitoring systems. The Liebert iCOM-DO is a
direct replacement of the Liebert ENV-DO card that was supported on previous Liebert control
systems. The Liebert iCOM-DO allows simultaneous use of the Liebert Intellislot cards as the Liebert
iCOM-DO communicates over the CANbus network instead of the IGMnet interface.
Liebert iCOM-DO card provides up to 15 configurable alarms through relay outputs. For the ratings
and additional data, refer to the Liebert iCOM-DO manual, SL-28096. Each alarm output has 3
terminals: N/C, N/O and common. The Liebert iCOM-DO setup can be found in the Service, Liebert
iCOM-DO menu (large display only). The Liebert iCOM-DO is pre-configured and its present is
automatically detected by the Liebert iCOM once it is connected to the CANbus line. The default
alarm configuration matches the original Liebert ENV-DO card alarm mapping.

Wellness—Next Maintenance Calculation
The next maintenance calculation, as well as the diagnostics feature, will help keep the cooling unit
running at peak performance to ensure minimum component stress and maximum reliability. The
diagnostics will help the service engineer evaluate the unit’s operation since the last maintenance.
3.10.1 Calculating Next Maintenance and Diagnostics
If the unit includes any of the following components, they are included in the calculation:
•
•
•
•
•
Fan(s)
Compressor 1
Compressor 2
Electric Heaters
Humidifier
For each component, the next maintenance will be calculated from the following parameters:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Standard service interval (1, 2 or 4 times a year) (to be set)
Working hours (counted)
Number of starts (counted)
Average running time (calculated)
Optimum number of starts per hour (to be set)
Maximum number of starts per hour (to be set)
Maximum bonus to enlarge time to next maintenance (to be set)
Maximum penalty to reduce time to next maintenance (to be set)
Calculating Unit Wellness
Liebert iCOM keeps tabs on the condition of a cooling unit, determining its wellness and projecting
when service will be needed, for the entire unit as well as for individual components. This assists in
scheduling maintenance calls and helps pinpoint components likely to require service.
Liebert iCOM displays a graphic for needed maintenance. It begins with the standard maintenance
interval—12 months, six months or three months—and adjusts that based on its calculation of
components’ wellness.
To calculate wellness, Liebert iCOM keeps a running total of component working hours and the
number of times it has been started. Liebert iCOM relates that data to the optimum/maximum starts
per hour. Accordingly, Liebert iCOM will increase or decrease the time before the next service call.
The more frequently a component starts, the sooner it is likely to need maintenance. If, for example, a
unit’s fan runs continuously, but it’s compressor starts and stops often, Liebert iCOM records that
and calls for maintenance based on the compressor’s wellness factor.
Alarms and warnings, such as clogged filters or high or low pressure, reduce the time till the next
maintenance to zero. If the alarm is cleared and reset, Liebert iCOM recalculates wellness. It begins
with the pre-alarm maintenance time and factors in the alarm.
Parameters for Next Maintenance Calculation
General Maintenance Settings
• Maintenance Frequency—can be set as one to 12 months or to zero, which disables
maintenance calculation
• Max. Bonus—increases the time to next maintenance with the set value, if all components run
optimally (number of starts, average running time)
• Max. Penalty value—decreases the time to next maintenance with the set value, if some
components run in non-optimum way (number of starts, average running time)
• Last Maintenance—date can be set from service-engineer; informational
• Service-Engineer—name of the service engineer; editable
• Reset—puts all counters of all components, such as (motor, compressors, heaters and humidifier),
at zero and starts a new maintenance calculation (reset to be done after maintenance)
40
Operation
Fans / Heaters / Humidifier Settings and Diagnostics
• Number of starts and Working hours are counted separately since the last maintenance. Total
working hours can be read in the standard working hours window (customer window).
• Average Working Hours is the calculation, resulting from starts and working hours.
• Starts per Day Optimum is the number of starts considered as optimum.
• Starts per Day Worst is the number of starts considered as hunting (worst case).
• Number of Alarms counts the alarms, happened between two service intervals.
• Actual Bonus is calculated from number of starts and average working time. Can be positive
(bonus) or negative (penalty). This value influences the time remaining to the next maintenance.
Compressor 1 / 2 Settings and Diagnostics
• Number of starts and Working hours are individually counted since the last maintenance. Total
working hours can be read in the standard working hours window (customer window).
• Average Working Hours is the calculation, resulting from starts and working hours.
• Starts per Day Optimum is the number of starts considered as optimum.
• Starts per Day Worst is the number of starts considered as hunting (worst case).
• Number of HP Alarms counts the high-pressure alarms, happened between 2 service intervals.
• Number of LP Alarms counts the low-pressure alarms, happened between 2 service intervals.
• Number of TH Alarms counts the thermal protection alarms, happened between 2 service
intervals.
• Actual Bonus is calculated from number of starts and average working time. Can be positive
(bonus) or negative (penalty). This value influences the time remaining to the next maintenance.

Teamwork
4.0
TEAMWORK
Unit-2-Unit (U2U) communications via a private network will allow the following functions to be
placed into operation when the requirement exists. The user must install the correct hardware
(see 5.0 - Installing a Liebert iCOM Unit-to-Unit Network) and properly program the units for
the selected functionality.
The Liebert iCOM network can perform the following functions:
The Teamwork Mode functions allow for multiple stages of cooling/heating and
humidification/dehumidification. Teamwork Mode can be used to prevent environmental units from
“fighting,” where one environmental unit might be cooling while another unit is heating.
The Standby (Lead/Lag) function allows one or more units to be set as “Running” and “Standby” for
activation in case of an alarm. This function also allows the units to be programmed in a rotation to
help ensure “Standby” unit operation.
The Cascade Operation function allows additional units to be staged-on based on the temperature
or humidity requirement.
4.1
Teamwork Modes
Groups of cooling units connected to a network can be set up to work together in any of three
teamwork modes:
• No Teamwork
• Teamwork Mode 1
• Teamwork Mode 2
All Liebert iCOM-controlled cooling units on a network must be set to run in the same teamwork
mode.
4.1.1
Application of Teamwork Modes
• No Teamwork: Multiple zones in one room
• Teamwork Mode 1: Balanced load (small groups of units inside the same environment)
• Teamwork Mode 2: Unbalanced load (large rooms, not all units will have the same load) (work
well for most applications)
All units in a network will run in the same Teamwork Mode.
4.1.2
No Teamwork
All cooling units work independently, responding to their own sensors.
Standby function and unit rotation are possible, but cascading is not (see Standby and Cascade on
page 44). Autoset will not adjust the proportional band in this mode.
42
Teamwork
4.1.3
Teamwork Mode 1
Teamwork Mode 1 works best in small rooms with balanced heat loads. The return temperature and
humidity sensor readings of all units in operation (fan on) are averaged by the master unit, Unit #1,
and used for control. The master unit will send the operating requirements to all operating units
according to unit numbers, rotated by one unit every 24 hours.
In this teamwork mode, most of the parameters are shared; if set in any one of the units, all other
units will follow with the same settings. AutoSet will adjust the proportional band in Teamwork
Mode 1, see 3.2.1 - Temperature Proportional Band.
The master unit evenly divides the system proportional band among the number of available units.
Each unit will receive instruction on how to operate from the master unit based on how far the system
deviates from the setpoints.
The number of available units is calculated like:
• In non-standby configuration: all units with fan on
• In typical standby function (no cascade): all units with fan on
• In cascade mode: all units that could operate (no alarm, which forces the unit to switch off, unit
not switched off, etc.)
NOTE
1. Proportional actuators (chilled water valve, free-cooling actuator) are driven in parallel in
all units.
2. Changeover to second cooling source, low limit during dehumidification and low supply
limit control air local functions, managed from each unit independently.
Figure 28 shows how two cooling units work together in Teamwork Mode 1. Since Unit 1 and Unit 2
are available to operate, the master unit, Unit 1, averages the temperature and humidity sensor
readings from each unit.
The master unit determines that a 60% call for cooling is required for the system. Since there are two
available cooling units, each unit makes up half of the system proportional band; Unit 1 handles 050% system call for cooling and Unit 2 handles 51-100%. For every 1% system call for cooling, each
unit provides 2% of its total cooling capacity.
The 60% system call for cooling exceeds the 50% Unit 1 can provide, so Unit 1 operates at full
capacity. The remaining 10% system call for cooling (60% - 50% = 10%) is handled by Unit 2. Unit 2
responds by operating at 20% cooling capacity (50% ÷ 10% = 20%).

Teamwork
4.1.4
Teamwork Mode 2
Teamwork Mode 2 is designed to prevent units within a group from working against each other or
“fighting.” It is best applied in large rooms with unbalanced heat loads. In Teamwork Mode 2, all
parameters are shared equal to Mode 1, and Unit #1 averages all of the available unit sensor readings
on the network to define whether there is a cooling, heating, dehumidification or humidification
request.
If there is a cooling request, all units are released to start cooling resources according to their own
temperature readings; heating is disabled for all units and vice versa. Same for humidity control.
If the network average would ask for 0% proportional band, the most demanding request (highest or
lowest temperature of all units, highest or lowest humidity of all units) would be used to define the
operation to be performed.
Teamwork Mode 2 does not rotate; unevenly distributed working hours to be expected. Autoset will
not adjust the proportional band in this mode.
NOTE
In Teamwork Mode 2, all units must have the same setpoints. The units’ proportional band,
deadband and related settings may differ.
4.1.5
Standby—Rotation
Typical Standby (Lead/Lag) Function
This function can be performed in any teamwork mode, including NO Teamwork.
One or more units can be defined to be Standby; the normal status of standby units is Standby Off
(fan off).
In case one regular unit has an alarm that is defined (to be defined in the alarm configuration), to
switch on a standby unit, the faulty unit will switch off and the standby unit will switch on.
If the next unit has an alarm, the next standby unit will be started. If no more standby units are
available, the unit with a non-critical alarm that permits unit operation will be switched on again
(water detection, fan alarm, fire alarm etc. will not permit unit restarting).
The standby function can be rotated daily (setting the time), weekly (setting the day of the week and
time) or monthly (setting the first weekday of the month and time).
The rotation is performed with a selectable number of units: if 1 is selected, to standby rotates from
1-2 to 2-3 in a 4 units configuration with two standby units, and rotates from 1-2 to 3-4 in the same
configuration, when the rotation parameter is set to 2.
NOTE
Before entering standby mode, units will operate the fan only for 3 minutes to cool the electrical
heaters, remove steam from the unit, etc.
Standby and Cascade
Cascade is possible in Teamwork Mode 1 only.
Standby units will start if an alarm occurs in one of the operational units. If the standby units are
cascaded, they will also start and work with the regular operational units if the temperature or
humidity cannot be controlled by the operational units; before a high or low temperature / humidity
condition occurs. Cascaded units are switched off again as soon as the temperature / humidity returns
back to normal.
The master unit defines its proportional band according to the number of available units (see 4.1.3 Teamwork Mode 1).
When a standby unit receives a request for full heating or cooling from the master unit (see 3.2.1 Temperature Proportional Band), it will respond to the request after its control delay.
NOTE
Cascaded units are not included in the calculation of the average temperature / humidity.

INSTALLING A LIEBERT ICOM UNIT-TO-UNIT NETWORK
Connecting multiple Liebert iCOM-controlled cooling units in an Ethernet Unit-to-Unit (U2U)
network enables the units to work together to achieve efficient cooling and humidity control of the
conditioned space. Networking enables setting up the cooling units to exchange data for various
modes of operation:
•
•
•
•
Teamwork
Lead/Lag-Standby
Rotation
Cascade
However the cooling units are set up, a large display may be used to control and view the operational
status of individual units or of the entire system.
NOTE
The maximum number of cooling units that may be interconnected is 32.
5.1
Placement of Cooling Units
Refer to the cooling unit product manuals for details on installation. Also consider these factors when
planning for installation of cooling units with Liebert iCOM controls:
•
•
•
•
5.1.1
heat load in the conditioned space
cooling air distribution
number of operating units versus number of standby cooling units
location of the network switch—An Ethernet cable cannot exceed 328 feet (100m)
Balancing Operating and Standby Units
Assign identification to the units in a manner that balances the operating units and standby units
according to room layout and heat-load requirements. For example, identify the operating units with
numbers 1 through 5 and the standby units 6 through 10. Refer to Figure 29.

U2U Hardware: Cables and Network Switch
Plan wiring runs for U2U communication when designing the layout of your conditioned space. In
addition to general good wiring practices, take into account:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Ethernet CAT5 or greater cable is required for interconnecting the units.
Maximum distance must not exceed 328 feet (100m).
A device to boost the Ethernet signal may be used to exceed the 328 feet (100m) length limitation.
Ethernet network should be private—set up only for management and control of the cooling units.
Keep control and communication cables away from power cables to prevent electromagnetic
interference.
Do not bend cables to less than four times the diameter of the cable.
Do not deform cables when securing in bundles or when hanging them.
Keep cables away from devices that can introduce noise into them, such as machines, fluorescent
lights, and electronics.
Avoid stretching Ethernet cables—tension when pulling cables should not exceed 25 pounds
(11kg).
Do not secure Ethernet cables with any method that might damage them; use approved hangers,
such as telephone wire/RG-6 coaxial wire hangers, available at most hardware stores.
Minimum Network Switch Requirements
• IEEE 802.3; IEEE 802.3u
• 10/100 Mbps speed
• Multiple 10/100 RJ-45 ports—one shared; RJ-45 Uplink port
The Liebert vNSA™ is an approved powered network switch designed to support Liebert iCOM U2U
networks. See Liebert vNSA on page 53 for details.

Installing a Liebert iCOM Unit-to-Unit Network
5.3
Wiring for Unit-to-Unit Communications—U2U
Cooling units come from the factory-wired for stand-alone operation.
Liebert iCOM U2U Ethernet Network
The Liebert iCOM U2U network must be isolated from other network traffic. The network switch(es)
that connect Liebert iCOMs need to be dedicated to supporting only Liebert iCOM communication.
The U2U network cannot be connected to the building or IT network. If network communication is
ever lost (failed network switch, etc.), all Liebert iCOM-controlled cooling units will continue to
operate as independent units.
The Liebert iCOM can support up to 64 nodes on one network. An input/output board, large display,
and large wall-mount display are each considered one node. Of the 64 nodes that may be connected,
no more than 32 may be input/output boards (32 cooling units). A small display is not considered a
node. Small displays connect directly to input/output boards that do not have large displays attached
to them. The following table illustrates how a network can be configured.

Installing a Liebert iCOM Unit-to-Unit Network
5.3.1
Wiring a Liebert iCOM U2U Network
Small Displays
Two cooling units, each with a small display: To network two cooling units, each with a small
display, connect a crossover CAT5 cable between the P64 connectors on each cooling unit’s Liebert
iCOM input/output board. A network switch is not needed (see Figure 30).
Figure 30 Connecting two cooling units, each with a small display, using a crossover Ethernet cable
Three or more units with small displays: To network three or more cooling units, each equipped
with a small display. Figure 33 shows that one plug of the CAT5 cable is connected to P64A
connector and the other to the network switch. The P64A, which is connected to port P64 on the
control board, is located near it on each cooling unit’s Liebert iCOM input/output board to a common
network switch. The P64A connector is a crossover coupler that on DS, CW and Challenger units.
NOTE
If P64A is not available on a unit, connect directly to the Liebert iCOM board on P64.
Large Displays
A network switch is required to enable Ethernet communication on one or more cooling units with
large displays. Each cooling unit with a large display requires two straight-through Ethernet cables
from a network switch. One cable connects to port P64 on the Liebert iCOM input/output board and
the other straight-through cable connects to the female-female coupler, if the female-to-female
coupler is provided with the unit. Connect the red crossover cable, which is provided with the cooling
unit, between the coupler and the P64 port on the back of the large display (see Figure 34). If the
female-to-female coupler is not provided, connect the straight-through cable to Port P64 on the large
display.
NOTE
A female-to-female coupler is factory-supplied on some cooling units equipped with a large
display.

Wall-Mount Large Display
Only large displays can be used for remotely monitoring and controlling cooling units connected on
the same network. Each wall-mount large display requires 120VAC or 230VAC input power; Liebert
provides an AC adapter wall plug. A straight-through Ethernet cable must be connected between the
network switch and the P64 port on the back of the display. This will enable control and monitoring
capabilities to any cooling unit connected to the network.
Combining Large and Small Displays on a U2U Network
Setting up a network of cooling units equipped with large and small displays requires a network
switch. The controls are to be connected to the switch as described above.

Liebert vNSA
The Liebert vNSA is designed to connect multiple Liebert iCOMs. The Liebert vNSA contains either
one or two powered industrial rail switches. An optional remote large display can be attached to the
front door as well. All models have a power supply that requires connection to a single phase 120VAC
or 230VAC power source. The enclosure features a key lock for security.
The Liebert vNSA supports autonegotiation, autopolarity and autocrossing, allowing for the use of
standard network cables for connection to each port, rather than special crossover cables. The switch
detects and makes adjustments for the network's speed and transmission mode, polarity and
transmit-and-receive pins. See the Liebert vNSA user manual, SL-18840, for more details.
The number of ports available for connecting Liebert iCOMs varies by model as shown in Table 14.
Models with a remote large display attached to the front door utilize one of the available Ethernet
ports in the Liebert vNSA. Models with two switches utilize two ports to connect the switches.

EXTERNAL COMMUNICATION—BUILDING MANAGEMENT SYSTEMS, LIEBERT
SITESCAN®
Liebert iCOM is capable of communicating with external monitoring systems, such as Building
Management Systems (BMS), Network Monitoring Systems (NMS), Liebert's SiteScan® Web system
and others.
Each Liebert iCOM-controlled cooling unit is equipped with Liebert IntelliSlot plug-in slots for use
with optional communication cards:
• Ethernet Web/SNMP Card
• RS-485 Modbus Card
The hot-swappable plug-in cards provide interfaces supporting open protocols, including Modbus,
HTTP (Web) and SNMP. See the Liebert Web site for the latest supported protocols, Modbus
reference information and SNMP MIBs: www.liebert.com
An alternate, limited method of communicating with an existing Liebert SiteScan Web monitoring
system is via twisted-pair cables connected to terminals 77 and 78 on the cooling unit terminal strip.
To use this method, the Liebert IntelliSlot power supply connection to P65 on the Liebert iCOM I/O
board must be unplugged, and the factory-supplied 77-78 cable must be connected to P65 (follow
Liebert SiteScan instructions for further connections). The appropriate Liebert iCOM control
parameters must be configured to utilize the terminals.
Liebert iCOM software versions PA1.04.022.STD and older, which shipped before to November 2010,
will support Velocity V3.
The older Velocity V3 cards will become obsolete with the advent of the Velocity V4 protocol and the
newer Liebert IntelliSlot cards that communicate with this protocol. The newer cards are compatible
with the older Liebert IntelliSlot cards’ Modbus mapping and data.
NOTE
Liebert SiteScan will be limited to legacy parameters when communicating via
Terminals 77 and 78.

Temperature Setpoint—Selects a return temperature that the cooling unit will maintain by
applying cooling and or reheats. This is adjustable from 41-104°F (5-40°C); the factory default is
73°F (22.7°C).
Control Type—Selects the type of control the system will use to activate cooling or heating. A
detailed description of each control type can be found in 3.6 - Control Types.
Temperature Proportional Band—Adjusts the activation points of compressors or rate of change
based on the actual sensor values deviation from setpoint. The smaller this number the faster the
compressors and valve(s) will increase capacity. Too small of a number may cause the unit to short
cycle the compressors or excessively reposition the valve.
Temperature Integration Time—Adjusts the capacity of the unit based on time away from
setpoint so that accurate temperature control can be maintained. This parameter is active when
Control Type is set to “PI”.
AutoSet Enable—Sets the temperature and humidity proportional bands automatically based on
the type of unit when this parameter is set to “YES” and if teamwork modes are selected. To change
the proportional bands, this parameter must be set to “NO”.
Temperature Deadband—Avoids overshooting of the setpoint and cycling between the reheats and
cooling. The value entered in this field will be split in half by the temperature setpoint. Example—If
the temperature setpoint is 70°F (21.1°C) and a 4°F (2.2°C) deadband is set, then no cooling will be
activated until 72°F (22.2°C) and no heating will be activated until 68°F (20°C) is reached.
Second Setpoint—Selects a temperature setpoint that will be activated in the event of a customer
input signal configured as the 2nd Setpoint. The customer input must be configured for this
parameter to activate. This parameter is adjustable from 41-104°F (5-40°C). The factory default
setting is 73°F (22.7°C).
Backup Temperature Setpoint—Selects a temperature setpoint that will be activated in the event
of a BMS Timeout. The BMS timer must be configured for this parameter to activate. This parameter
is adjustable from 41-104°F (5-40°C). The factory default setting is 73°F (22.7°C).
Heaters Deadband—Changes the amount of deviation below the temperature setpoint that the
heaters will cycle On and Off on Liebert HPM units. This value is added to the heating side of the
normal temperature deadband.

Humidity Setpoint—Selects a humidity that the cooling unit will maintain by removing or adding
moisture to the air. This parameter is adjustable from 20-80%. The factory default setting is 50%.
Humidity Control Type—Selects the humidity control calculation. Setting this parameter to
“Relative” will control the humidity without considering any temperature deviations. “Predictive” and
“Absolute” control consider the temperature deviation from temperature setpoint so that a constant
level of moisture is kept in the area based on the humidity sensor reading and the temperature
deviation from setpoint. The factory default setting is “Predictive” (see 3.6.2 - Humidity Sensor
Reading Control Types).
Humidity Proportional Band—Adjusts the activation points of the humidifier and compressors
based on the actual sensor values deviation from setpoint. The smaller this number the faster the
compressors and humidifier will increase capacity, too small of a number may cause the unit to short
cycle or overshoot setpoint.
Humidity Integration Time—Adjusts the capacity of the unit based on time away from setpoint so
that accurate humidity control can be maintained. If the integration time is set to 0, the humidity
control operates as a “proportional only” control. When an integration time is set the control mode
changes to “PI” control.
Humidity Deadband—Prevents overshooting of the setpoint and cycling between humidification
and dehumidification. The value entered in this field will be split in half by the temperature setpoint.
Example: If the humidity setpoint is 50% and a 4% deadband is set, then the dehumidification
proportional range will be from 52 to 57% and the humidification proportional range will be from 48
to 43%.
Dehum/Heat Low Limit 1—Sets the temperature at which one of two compressors will be
deactivated for dehumidification control. Unit must be set for two-compressor dehumidification for
this value to be settable. Example—If Low Limit 1 is set to 4°F (2.2°C) and the temperature setpoint
is 70°F (21.1°C) then one of the two compressors will turn off at 66°F (18.8°C).
Dehum/Heat Low Limit 2—Sets the temperature at which dehumidification is stopped.
Example—If Low Limit 2 is set to 8°F (4.4°C) and the temperature setpoint is 70°F (21.1°C) then all
dehumidification will be deactivated at 62°F (16.6°C).

Supply Sensor—Selects how the supply sensor will be used by the control. The choices are Disabled,
Cooling Only, Control and Limit. See 3.7 - Supply Control for a detailed description. The supply
sensor can only be set to Cooling Only and Control on chilled water units. The chilled water unit must
have the valve feedback if the valve type is a 3P valve (actuator). Proportional control actuators used
on motorized ball valves do not require the feedback feature.
Supply Setpoint—Sets the temperature setpoint for the supply sensor when it is set to Cooling
Only, Control or Limit.
Supply Control Type—Selects the type of control the system will use to activate cooling. A detailed
description of each control type can be found in 3.6 - Control Types.
Supply Proportional Band—Adjusts the valve’s rate of change based on the actual sensor values
deviation from setpoint when the supply sensor is set to Cooling Only or Control. The smaller this
number, the faster the valve(s) will increase cooling capacity. Too small of a number may cause the
unit to excessively reposition the valve.
Supply Integration—Adjusts the capacity of the unit based on time away from setpoint so that
accurate temperature control can be maintained. This parameter is active only when Control Type is
set to “PI.”
Supply Deadband—Prevents overshooting of the setpoint and cycling between the reheats and
cooling. The value entered into this field will be split in half by the temperature setpoint. Example: If
the temperature setpoint is 60°F (15.5°C) and a 4°F (2.2°C) deadband is set then no cooling will be
activated until 62°F (16.6°C) and no heating will be activated until 58°F (14.4°C) is reached.
Valve Pulse—Defines the minimum change in the cooling requirement before the valve will
reposition. A greater number decreases the amount of repositions and a smaller number will increase
the response of the valve.
Cooling Filter at 0% / 100%—Controls the rate of change during a valve position adjustment to
avoid overshoots. The filter value depends on the current control deviation from the setpoint. On the
setpoint (at 0%), it’s typically set lower (slow), and at the end of the P-band (at 100%), it’s typically set
higher (faster). The value is given in % control output change per second.
Return Compensation—For supply control only. Defines the maximum increase allowed to the
supply temperature setting to maintain a minimum return temperature setpoint. When the return
air temperature is above its setpoint, the supply air setpoint remains unchanged. As the return air
temperature drops below the setpoint, the supply air setpoint will be proportionally increased to
maintain the return temperature setpoint. The maximum increase is defined with the return
compensation parameter.

DT between Room Air / Outdoor—This feature is used only on Liebert HPM products.
DT between Room / FC Type—Determines the method to activate the water circuit on Dual-Cool
and free-cool units. When this parameter is set to “Contact,” a dry contact closure can be used to
activate the free cooling circuit. When this parameter is set to “Value,” the delta between the water
temperature of the free-cool circuit and the actual room temperature are compared.
DT between Room Air / FC Fluid—Sets the delta between the actual room temperature and the
free-cooling fluid temperature to determine if cooling can be provided.
Minimum CW Temp—Enables the temperature at which free-cooling can operate independently
without assistance of the compressor circuit.
Minimum CW Temp Value—Sets the water temperature at which 100% free-cooling can be
provided to handle the full room load. When the fluid temperature is below this setting then the
compressors will no longer turn on until the water temperature is above the minimum CW Temp.
Lockout FC at FC Fluid below—The temperature that turns off the free-cooling circuit when the
water temperature is too low. This setting prevents frost from building up on the free-cooling pipes
when the outdoor ambient is extremely low.
Transition Change—Applied over the “Cooling Filter at 0% / 100%” when the cooling signal makes
the transition between cooling and dehumidification. This will smooth the cooling capacity changes
between dehumidification and cooling.

VSD Fanspeed—Sets the control type for a Variable Fanspeed device, which includes Variable
Frequency Drives and EC fans. Selection options are Auto, Manual, Economy, Delta, Return and
Supply control. See 3.1.1 - Unit/Fan Control for details of each control.
Airflow Calibration—Allows the front display to be scaled to show the actual percentage of airflow
independent of the voltage operating the fan speed. This value cannot be set above the Analog Output
High Limit or below the Analog Low Limit for the fan set in the Advanced Menu.
VSD Setpoint MIN/STD—Sets the fanspeed for the VSD. “MIN” sets the minimum speed that the
fan will operate at. Fan speed is modulated between the “VSD Setpoint MIN” and “VSD Setpoint
STD” based on either the call for cooling (Auto Control) or other fanspeed control settings determined
by the VSD Fanspeed. When VSD Fanspeed is set to Auto, Economy or Delta control, the “STD”
setting on this parameter is the high limit for the fan speed output. If VSD Fanspeed is set to Manual,
this parameter is the actual running speed of the fan. The VSD Setpoint MIN and STD settings are
expressed as a percentage of the Airflow Calibration setting.
VSD Setpoint Dehum/No Power—Sets the fixed fan speed the fan will operate at when there is a
call for dehumidification. The factory default setting for chilled water units is 60% which helps to
keep the coil in a latent or dehumidification mode. When set to “No Power,” this parameter sets the
fan speed applied when a Customer Input set to “No Power” is activated. These settings are expressed
as a percentage of the Airflow Calibration setting.
NOTE
Fixed fan speeds are also set during Heating and Humidification modes. These settings are
determined by the manufacturer to prevent excessive heater temperatures and condensation
and are typically set at 100% fanspeed.
Fanspeed Change at 0% / 100%—Controls the rate of change during a fan speed adjustment to
avoid overshoots. The filter value depends on the current control deviation from the setpoint. On the
setpoint (at 0%), it’s typically set lower (slow), and at the end of the P-band (at 100%), it’s typically set
higher (faster). The value is given in % control output change per second.
Fanspeed Reposition Delay—Sets the reposition delay that is applied only for changes to decrease
fanspeed; increases in fanspeed are controlled only by the fanspeed change speed filter. After
fanspeed is increased, the timer will prevent the speed from being reduced for the delay duration.
Fanspeed Delta—Sets the temperature delta between the two cold aisle containment sensors. This
delta is maintained to ensure that there is sufficient airflow inside the containment area.
Fanspeed P-Band—Sets the proportional band when fanspeed is in Delta control mode.
Fanspeed Integration—Sets the integration time when fanspeed is in Delta control mode.

Alarm Relay—Activates the Liebert iCOM’s common alarm relay output.
K11 Relay—Activates the Liebert iCOM’s free-cooling relay output.
3P 1/2 Actuator Open—Energizes the open circuit of the 3P type chilled or free-cooling control
valve.
3P 1/2 Actuator Close—Energizes the close circuit of the 3P type chilled or free-cooling control
valve.
BV Control—Activates the following two items allowing the motorized ball valve to be manually
opened or shut.
MBV1 Position—Specifies the percentage valve 1 should be open. Range is 0 to 100%.
MBV2 Position—Specifies the percentage valve 2 should be open. Range is 0 to 100%.
NOTE
When BV control is set to Auto, the MBV position will be adjusted to the set value, but the
pressure control algorithm will immediately begin adjusting the valve to control the condenser
pressure. When BV control is set to manual, the MBV position will be maintained as set.
Emerson recommends against manually setting the MBVs during compressor operation
because it might cause the compressor to trip on its high- or low-pressure protection controls.
Analog Out 1, 2, 3 & 4—Specifies the analog output percentage subsequently controlling the device
connected to that output. Range is 0 to 100% but also depends on the output’s assignment in factory
settings.

Valve Control—Controls the 3P valve(s). Control can be by either of two methods:
• A time-driven signal that uses a 3P valve’s travel time and the time that an open or closed output
is provided to a 3P valve to estimate its current position.
• A feedback signal from the valve that is required for Supply Air Control. The feedback signal
constantly provides the Liebert iCOM with the valve’s position, eliminating the need to reset the
valve(s) on a loss of power and provides a valve failure detection.
Start Valve Calibration—Changing this value to “Yes” starts the valve calibration procedure.
During this procedure the valve is positioned to a fully closed and fully opened state while the
feedback signal is monitored. The control then automatically saves the feedback signal voltage at the
two end points as its calibration reference during normal operation.
Calibration Status—Shows whether the calibration has been started: idle indicates calibration has
not begun; ongoing indicates calibration has begun. When calibration has been completed the status
will return to idle.
V1: 0% open = —Feedback voltage recorded when the valve is positioned at 0% during the
calibration.
V1: 100% open = —Feedback voltage recorded when the valve is positioned at 100% during the
calibration.
Current V1 Feedback—The valve’s current feedback voltage. This value changes as the valve
strokes to different open positions.
V2: 0% open = —For an optional secondary valve; operates the same as the V1
V2: 100% open = —For an optional secondary valve; operates the same as the V1.
Current V2 Feedback—For an optional secondary valve; operates the same as the V1.

Set Alarm Screens, Pages 4-8
The Set Alarm Screens, pages 4 through 8 (Figures 73 through 77) permit setting the operation of an
active alarm. Each event can be enabled or disabled and can be set to operate as an alarm, warning or
message. The delay is the time the control waits before reporting the event.
Alarm: Annunciates the buzzer, triggers a monitoring event, triggers the alarm relay and flashes
the red LED on the display
Warning: Annunciates the buzzer, triggers a monitoring event, shows the event in the event
viewer / front display and flashes the red LED on the display.
Message: Shows the event in the event viewer and on the front display.
Delay—The delay selection for each alarm.
EN-DIS—The enable / disable selection for each alarm provides the ability to individually select the
alarms that will or will not activate when the alarm condition occurs.
Type—Sets the type of action for each event listed. There are three different types of events: Alarm,
Warning and Message. When an event is triggered and the type is set to “Alarm,” then the light and
buzzer on the display will activate, an event will be written to the event log and the (K3) alarm relay
will close. If the type is set to “Warning,” then the light and buzzer on the display will activate, an
event will be written to the event log and the (K3) alarm relay can be configured to close or provide no
reaction. If the type is set to “Message,” then the event is only written to the event log.

Measure Type—Determines the measurement units and allowable range for each analog input.
Factory Std measurement type means the input is being used by the PA program for unit control
and cannot be set to any other measurement type.
Not Config measurement type means the input is available for custom sensor use, but has not
been configured. After unit code execution, all analog inputs that are available will be set to “Not
Config,” and can then be set to any of the following choices by the user:
• Air Pres 1, 2, 3 or 4
• Pressure 1, 2, 3 or 4
• Temp 1, 2, 3 or 4
• Percent 1, 2, 3 or 4
It is not necessary to match a measurement type number to the analog input number (i.e., “Air
Pres 2” does not have to be connected to Analog Input 2). The numeric designation on each
measurement type is just to allow the user to differentiate between readouts if multiple
measurements of the same type are required.
Precision—Parameters in the Precision column must match the DIP switch settings for each analog
input being used. There are two choices for these parameters: 0-5V and 0-10V. This setting will also
regulate the range of an analog input’s linear characteristic on Page 5 of the Options Setup screen of
the Service Menu (see Figure 92).
Line S441—Determines the unit type (English or SI) that will be used for the setup and readout of
custom sensors. This parameter affects only analog inputs. All lines in other menus involving
pressures or temperatures will have their readout type determined by line U404 of the User Selection menu. The table below shows the English and SI units for each measurement type.

Only characteristics for analog inputs used for custom sensors are visible in this menu.
Start Points, Lines S446, S448, S450 and S452)—Represent the starting point of each analog input’s
linear characteristic. The column on the left indicates the desired readout at the lowest allowable
sensor voltage, and the column on the right indicates the lowest sensor voltage.
End Points, Lines S447, S449, S451 and S453—Represent the finish point of each analog input’s
linear characteristic. The column on the left indicates the desired readout at the highest allowable
sensor voltage, and the column on the right indicates the highest sensor voltage.
The range of allowable voltages is dictated by the Precision selection for that analog output on Page 4
of the Options Setup screen of the Service Menu (see Figure 91). If the precision of Analog Input 1 is
set to 0-5V on line S436, the voltage selection on line S447 will not be allowed to go above 5.0V.
The range of the readout start/finish points is dictated by the units system selection on line S441. The
