1.INTRODUCTION
The EC-FAN GATEWAY is a user configurable BACnet protocol communications gateway that provides a bridging platform
for information flow between BACnet and MODBUS protocols.
This smart device is a simple to use controller that can be applied to managing HVAC applications, but above all a special
accessory for the connectivity of all MODBUS protocol ebm-papst fans to the most commonly used building management
system, BACnet.
The program and its parameters are saved to FLASH memory and EEPROM. This results in the EC-FAN GATEWAY retaining
programmable data irrespective of any power failures and thus eliminates the requirement of a back up battery. The
program can be loaded via PC.
1.1Installation
Mechanical Fastening
The EC-FAN GATEWAY is installed on a DIN rail. To fasten the unit to the DIN rail, press it lightly against the rail. The rear tabs
will click into place, locking the unit to the rail. Removing the rail is just as simple, using a screwdriver through the release
slot to lever and lift the tabs. The tabs are kept in the locked positions by the springs. Note that DIN rail is not provided in
the scope of delivery.
1.2
Power Supply
1.2.1 AC
The power supply is connected between G and G0 (Cf. Figure 1a). For AC installation, it is recommended to use a 30 VA
class 2 safety transformer that provides an output voltage of 24 Vac. This is to supply a single EC-FAN GATEWAY only. When
supplying multiple EC-FAN GATEWAY controllers with the same transformer, the transformer’s rated power must be n x
30VA, where “n” represents the number of EC-FAN GATEWAY controllers being supplied by this transformer.
1.2.2 DC
The power supply is connected between G and G0 (Cf. Figure 1b). The voltage supply required is 48 Vdc (36V min to 72V
max).
1.2.3 Fuse
The power supply to the EC-FAN GATEWAY and terminal (or series of EC-FAN GATEWAYs and terminals) should be separate
from the power supply to the other electrical devices (contactors and other electromechanical components) inside the
electrical panel. A 250 V 800 mAT fuse must be installed in the power supply line. The power supply is functionally insulated
from the rest of the I/O circuit, including the serial connections.
1.3
Installation warnings
1.3.1 Operating Environment
Avoid assembling the EC-FAN GATEWAY controller in environments with the following characteristics
• Relative humidity greater than 90%
• Strong vibrations or knocks
3
The engineer’s choice
• Exposure to continuous water sprays
• Exposure to corrosive or pollutant gases (eg. sulphur or ammonia fumes, saline mist, smoke). This is to avoid corrosion
and oxidation of the controller unit
• Strong magnetic and/or radio interference. Avoid installation of the EC-FAN GATEWAY close to transmitting antennas
• Large and rapid ambient temperature fluctuations
• Environments where explosive mixes of flammable gases are present
• Exposure to dust
1.3.2 Connecting the EC-FAN GATEWAY
• Using an inappropriate power supply from the one specified could seriously damage the EC-FAN GATEWAY.
• Use cable ends that are suitable for the terminals. Loosen each screw and insert the cable ends, then tighten the screws
once completed, lightly tug at the cables to ensure that they are appropriately fitted.
• Avoid touching or coming into close contact with the electronic components fitted on the boards. This is recommended
to avoid electrostatic discharges from the operator to the components. Electrostatic discharges can have an extremely
detrimental effect on the functionality of the EC-FAN GATEWAY.
• Disconnect the controller from the power supply before performing any maintenance or assembly connections/operations.
• If and when the EC-FAN GATEWAY is not used in the manner specified by the manufacturer, the rated protection of the
device may be compromised.

6. INSTALLATION
6.1
User Interface and LED Buttons
pCOWeb (Figure 3) features a button (PUSHBUTTON) and two indicator LEDs (STATUS LED and ETHERNET LED).
Fig. 4 LED Indicators
Functions of the button
When starting up the pCOWeb, the push button is used to select the network communication type - either factory parameters
or user parameters. In the case of the EC-FAN GATEWAY the parameters have already been pre-programmed for the
customer. There is no requirement for the customer to select network communication.
6.2 Push button & LEDs
When the Ethernet LED is in a solid green state, this indicates successful connectivity between the PC and the EC-FAN
GATEWAY. When the status LED is green, this indicateds successul communication between PC (pCOWeb software) and
the EC-FAN GATEWAY.
Immediately after reboot, as soon as the Status LED remains on steady GREEN, hold the button; after around 20 seconds
the Status LED will turn RED and flash slowly 3 times. The button must be released before the end of the 3 flashes. This
process has to be done only once at the point of programming the device.
In normal operation, the push button reboots pCOWeb without needing to disconnect the power supply. The customer is
not recommended to reboot the system via the push button as this is done by the pCOWeb webpage that is to be
set up in Section 7.5.
6.3 Connection
Connect pCOWeb to the Ethernet connector on the PC using a crossover cable (Figure 4). Please note that the crossover
cable is not part of the scope of delivery.

6.4 Addressing fans
• Before the set up of the EC-FAN GATEWAY the number of active ebm-papst fans that are to be connected to the ECFAN GATEWAY will have to be pre-programmed via EC-Control. EC-Control is to be used to assign addresses for the
respective fans.
• The EC-FAN GATEWAY will not automatically assign addresses to the fans that are required on its network.
• ebm-papst recommends that the first fan be programmed at address 2 and the following fans thereafter to be
programmed at “n+1”. This is to avoid any confusion when a new fan unit is to be added to an existing network. ebmpapst fans are by factory default addressed 1.
• Ensure that the fans are not connected to the EC-FAN GATEWAY before the device has been appropriately programmed.
Power down the fans. Attach the communication cables to point 2 as per fig. 3 and power up the fans.

The engineer’s choice
Figure 20 describes the “Read and Write” type variables for the first MODBUS fan (Fan 1) in an installation. Take note that
each MODBUS fan has 30 registers assigned on the EC-Fan Gateway device.
Please apply the formula found under Register Number Fan (X) to determine the appropriate register number for the
different variables that represent Fan2,3 … 31. For example, if you were to change the “Ramp Up” time on Fan 2 then you
will be writing a value at register 43 (30(2-1)+13 = 43). Subsequently, the “Ramp Up” time for Fan 3 is assigned to register
73.
Take note that if the address is changed digitally via the building management system, this address change will also have
to be implemented on the EC-Fan Gateway device.
Once the above steps are completed your EC-FAN GATEWAY has been successfully set up.
If you have further questions please contact your ebm-papst representative or your nearest ebm-papst office.
