Temperature and Humidity
Control Programs
This section provides details on how your Liebert iCOM control responds to the
user programmed inputs values and room conditions. Refer to this section when
you need specific information control operation. This section includes details on
four (4) user selectable temperature control programs and two (2) user selectable
and humidity control programs.
Cooling and/ or Heating Required, in Percent (%)
The temperature control programs for the iCOM microprocessor is based on a
calculated percent (%) requirement for cooling and/ or heating. This percent (%)
requirement is determined by the control type (algorithm) selected by the user.
The four (4) user selectable temperature control programs are:
•
Intelligent
•
Proportional (P)
•
Proportional + Integral (PI)
•
Proportional + Integral + Derivative (PID)
Temperature Control Program Types
Intelligent Control – Factory Default Setting
The Intelligent Control operates from a set of general rules that defines how the
control output should be adjusted for different system conditions. The rules are
designed to duplicate the actions that an experienced human operator would take
if manually controlling the system.
Basically, this is done in a three-function process that differs from earlier
mathematically defined strict type data, hence, fuzzy logic. The on and off, true or
6
iCOM Control Training and Service Manual
untrue type of statement is not used. The consideration now is how to set the
input value into a membership set, qualify this membership with rules, then decide
on the output consequence for action. It is not really that simple, but it is basically
how it works. The process:
Membership
•
Measure value of input variables
•
Map and transfer data into range of set domain
•
Assign input membership into sets
Knowledge Base/Decision Making
•
Provide a data base of definitions for rules base
•
Provide a rules base and define function and domain
•
Simulate human decision making based on concepts and actions
defined by implications and rules
Consequence
•
Convert defined range of knowledge to a corresponding output
variable
•
Define a non-intelligent action from a deduced intelligent action
Just as an operator might take several things into consideration before making a
temperature control decision, the intelligent control can be programmed to do
likewise. For example, not only is the current temperature used in making
temperature control decisions, but also conditions such as:
•
How fast is the temperature changing?
•
What direction is the temperature changing?
•
What is the cooling output now?
•
What was the cooling output in the past?
•
How long ago was the cooling output changed?
•
Other factors
Any number of rules can be used in an intelligent control to define the controls
operation under various operating conditions. Hence, several advantages are
gained from this type of control over a more standard control approach that uses a
fixed mathematical equation to define the operation of the control for all conditions
(such as a Proportional or PID Control). You can expect Intelligent Control to be
7
iCOM Controls Training and Service Manual
more efficient and precise for most applications, but system performance based on
room conditions is not as predictable as standard approaches that use a fixed
equation.
The Liebert Intelligent Control includes rules that significantly enhance the
performance of the system, both from a standpoint of precision control and system
reliability.
Rules are included that:
• Cause the control to ignore very small or temporary temperature/
humidity deviations. This eliminates unnecessary control adjustments
that contribute to control instability.
•
Help limit the frequency of control adjustments thus extending the life of
system components that are susceptible to mechanical wear or cycling.
•
Recognize undesired modes of control operation such as hunting, and
make adjustments to the control response to eliminate them.
•
Estimate the present load on the system and then tend to force the
control output to the appropriate state.
•
Recognizes conditions, which indicate a large load change and allows
the control to temporarily respond more quickly than normal.
•
Cause the control to anticipate the need for reheat during
dehumidification and activates reheats when overcooling occurs.
Proportional (P) Control
The proportional control is the standard control method that maintains the room at
a temperature proportional to the load. The temperature maintained increases as
the room load increases. At full load the room would be controlled at a
temperature equal to the temperature set point (TSP) plus ½ of the temperature
proportional band (PB). The operator programmed inputs are the temperature set
point (TSP) and temperature proportional band (PB) adjustments. The operator
may also program a temperature dead band (DB) adjustment.
Proportional + Integral (PI) Control
The PI control combines two (2) individual terms to determine the control output
for a given set of conditions. Note that PI control is used only for temperature. If
PI control is selected, the humidity control will be in percent relative humidity
(%RH).
The proportional (P) term is determined by the difference between the current
temperature and the control set point. This term is expressed in % cooling
(heating desired for each degree above (below) the set point. It is adjustable from
0% to 100% per degree. The purpose of this term is to adjust the control output
for any deviation between the current temperature and the control set point.
8
iCOM Control Training and Service Manual
The integral (I) term is determined by two things: the difference between the return
air temperature and control set point and the amount of time this difference has
existed. This term is expressed in % cooling (heating) desired for each minute
and degree above (below) the set point. It is adjustable from 0% - 100% per
degree/minute. The purpose of this term is to force the control to maintain the
temperature around the set point by slowly but continuously adding (subtracting) a
small amount of cooling (heating) to the total control output until the temperature is
at the set point.
Proportional + Integral + Derivative (PID) Control
The PID control combines three (3) individual terms to determine the control
output for a given set of conditions. Note that PID control is used only for
temperature. If PID control is selected, the humidity control will be in percent
relative humidity (%RH).
The proportional (P) term is determined by the difference between the current
temperature and the control set point. This term is expressed in % cooling
(heating desired for each degree above (below) the set point. It is adjustable from
0% to 100% per degree. The purpose of this term is to adjust the control output
for any deviation between the current temperature and the control set point.
The integral (I) term is determined by two things: the difference between the return
air temperature and control set point and the amount of time this difference has
existed. This term is expressed in % cooling (heating) desired for each minute
and degree above (below) the set point. It is adjustable from 0% - 100% per
degree/minute. The purpose of this term is to force the control to maintain the
temperature around the set point by slowly but continuously adding (subtracting) a
small amount of cooling (heating) to the total control output until the temperature is
at the set point.
The derivative (D) term is determined by the rate of change of temperature. This
term is expressed in % cooling (heating) desired for each degree per minute rise
(fall) in temperature. It is adjustable from 0% to 100% per degree/minute. The
purpose of this term is to adjust the control output for quickly changing
temperatures, thus providing an anticipation control.
All three terms are adjusted by selecting the “Setpoints” icon in either the USER or
SERVICE Menu screen. If PID control is selected, the temperature proportional
band value (and optional temperature dead band value) is not used by the control.
For optimum performance, a PID control must be adjusted or tuned according to
the characteristics of the particular space and load to be controlled. Improper
tuning can cause the control to exhibit poor response and/ or hunting. The
characteristics of the space and load may change seasonally, so occasional
returning is required for optimum performance.
9
iCOM Controls Training and Service Manual
A suggested tuning procedure is as follows:
1.
Initially adjust the integral and derivative settings to 0% / degree-min
and 0% / degree / min..
2.
Starting with 20% / degree, adjust the proportional setting in small
increments (10% steps) until the control sustains a constant hunting
action (the temperature swings are approximately the same amplitude
from one peak to the next).
Note the time in minutes between peaks of adjacent temperature
swings and the amplitude of the temperature swing (degrees above the
set point).
3.
4.
Adjust the proportional control setting to about l/2 the value obtained in
Step 2.
5.
Adjust the integral setting to a value calculated by the following
equation: approximate room load (in % full load) time between
peaks x peak amplitude x 4.
Note: If calculation results in a value of less than 1%, then set the
integral to 1%.
6.
Adjust the derivative to a value calculated by the following equation:
time between peaks x 5%.
The above tuning procedure is only an approximation for an initial set of
adjustments and are based on the "average" room characteristics. Your particular
settings may need to be further adjusted for optimum PID control performance.
Some suggestions for additional tuning are as follows:
•
If cooling output overshoot is occurring on load changes, decrease
the proportional setting or the derivative setting.
•
If system hunting occurs with constant room load, decrease the
integral setting.
•
If the control responds too slowly, resulting in large temperature
excursions on a load change, increase the proportional setting or
the derivative setting.
•
If a constant temperature deviation exists between the
temperature and set point, increase the integral setting.

Temperature Control
Operations and Charts
The temperature proportional control band value is divided into two parts: the
temperature set point plus ½ of the temperature proportional band for cooling
operation and the temperature set point minus ½ of the temperature proportional
band for heating operation. A temperature dead band can also be programmed
into the control to shift the cooling and/ or heating on/ off operations away from the
temperature set point.
This programmed temperature dead band value is divided into two parts: the
temperature set point plus ½ of the dead band – no cooling operation and the
temperature set point minus ½ of the band – no heating operation.
The temperature set point range is adjustable from 41 - 104°F in increments of
1°F. The temperature proportional band range is adjustable from 2 - 54°F in
increments of 1°F. The temperature dead band range is adjustable from 0 - 36°F
in increments of 1°F.
Standard 2 Stage Compressorized Cooling
The basic temperature cooling control band is established at the temperature set
point with the length equal to ½ of the programmed temperature proportional band
divided by the number of cooling stages.
The Liebert DS units are supplied with two (2) compressors, each compressor is
rated at ½ of the unit capacity. The two (2) compressors will be either the
semi-hermetic or scroll type and will operate in an on/ off configuration to cool the
space.
The temperature controller activates the first cooling stage (lead compressor)
when the return air temperature increases to 50% of the cooling proportional band
and the second cooling stage (lag compressor) at 100% of the cooling proportional
band. The optional hot gas bypass solenoid valve, supplied with each compressor
when ordered, is also energized on a call for cooling.
11
iCOM Controls Training and Service Manual
The temperature controller deactivates the second stage of cooling (lag
compressor) when the return air temperature decreases to 50% of the cooling
proportional control band value. The first cooling stage (lead compressor) is
deactivated when the return air temperature decreases to the temperature set
point value or 0% of the cooling proportional control band value.

72°F or 50% of the cooling control band. If the return air temperature continues to
increase Cooling 2 (lag compressor) will activate at 74°F or 100% of the cooling
control band.
When the return air temperature starts to decrease, Cooling 2 (lag compressor) is
deactivated at 72°F or 50% of the cooling control band and Cooling 1 (lead

band.
When the return air temperature starts to decrease, Cooling 2 (lag compressor) is
deactivated at 73°F or ½ of the dead band value plus 50% of the cooling control
band and Cooling 1 (lead compressor) is deactivated at 71°F or ½ of the dead
band value plus 0% of the cooling control band.
Remember the temperature dead band value is used by the control to shift the
cooling on/ off operations away from the temperature set point.
Optional 4 - Stage Cooling, Two (2) Compressors with Unloaders
The basic temperature cooling control band is established at the temperature set
point with the length equal to ½ of the programmed temperature proportional band
divided by the number of cooling stages.
The Liebert DS units are supplied with two (2) compressors, each compressor is
rated at ½ of the unit capacity. Each compressor will be the semi-hermetic type
13
iCOM Controls Training and Service Manual
and will be supplied with an electrical cylinder unloader valve. The electrical
solenoid valve used to unload or reduce the cooling capacity of the compressor.
The compressors will operate in an on/ off - loaded/ unloaded configuration
method to cool the space. The hot gas bypass solenoid valve option is not
available on 4 stage systems.
The temperature controller activates the first cooling stage, lead compressor
unloaded, when the return air temperature increases to 25% of the cooling
proportional band. The second cooling stage, lag compressor unloaded, is
activated when the return air temperature increases to 50% of the cooling
proportional band.
The temperature controller activates the third cooling stage, the lead compressor
loaded, when the return air temperature increases to 75% of the cooling
proportional band. The fourth cooling stage, the lag compressor loaded, is
activated when the return air temperature increases to 100% of the cooling
proportional band.
The temperature controller deactivates the fourth cooling stage, lag compressor
loaded, when the return air temperature decreases to 75% of the cooling
proportional control band value. The third cooling stage, lead compressor loaded,
is deactivated when the return air temperature decreases to 50% of the cooling
proportional control band value.
The temperature controller deactivates the second cooling stage, lag compressor
unloaded, when the return air temperature decreases to 25% of the cooling
proportional control band value. The first cooling stage, lead compressor
unloaded, is deactivated when the return air temperature decreases to the
temperature set point value or 0% of the cooling proportional control band value.
The table below shows the devices activated by each of the four cooling stages.

controller and the unit setting for temperature control.
Note that the Digital Scroll will run continuously while the head is raised and
lowered as the need for cooling is required from 10% to 100% and vise versa.
Optional Glycool (Econ-O-Cycle) Cooling
When supplied with the Glycool option, the basic unit is supplied with an additional
coil, piping, valve and a Glycol Fluid Sensor (AQ), which is mounted to the unit
supply fluid line and serves as control interface in determining the system
operation. Selection of the glycool or compressorized operation is controlled by
microprocessor using this aquastat to sense the glycol temperature.
The Glycool (Econ-O-Cycle) Cooling program establishes two distinct control
bands for cooling control operation. The first band controls the operation of the
chilled glycol valve and the second controls the operation of the compressors,
either 2-stage or 4-stage.
The microprocessor checks the return air temperature and the entering glycol fluid
temperature to determine a cooling capacity. In order to reduce compressor
cycling and to prevent chilled glycol valve hunting, Glycool (Econ-o-Cycle) cooling
capacity does not become available until the entering chilled glycol fluid
18
iCOM Control Training and Service Manual
temperature is at least 8°F below the return air temperature, or 3°F lower than the
return air temperature for two consecutive hours.
When the microprocessor decides that the return glycol fluid temperature is cold
enough the first cooling band is the modulating valve control method, and the
second band, added to the first band, is for the compressors as in the normal
2-Stage or 4-Stage control method. If the chilled glycol fluid temperature is not
cold enough the valve control band is replaced by the compressor band. If the
chilled glycol cooling capacity is reduced by a rise in the glycol fluid temperature,
the control band shrinks proportionally. This allows the compressor band to move
down as well. The following shows the Glycool operation at 100% capacity and
the Glycool at 50% capacity.

Dual Source Cooling
When supplied with the Dual Cooling option, the basic unit is supplied with an
additional coil, piping, valve and a Glycol Fluid Sensor (AQ), which is mounted to
the unit supply fluid line and serves as control interface in determining the system
operation. Selection of the chilled water or compressorized operation is controlled
by microprocessor using this aquastat to sense the water temperature.
The Dual Source Cooling program establishes two distinct control bands for
cooling control operation in the same method as Glycool. The first band controls
the operation of the chilled water valve and the second controls the operation of
the compressors, either 2-stage or 4-stage.
The microprocessor checks the return air temperature and the entering chilled
water fluid temperature to determine a cooling capacity. The chilled water cooling
capacity is considered to be 100% if the entering Chilled Water fluid temperature is
8°F lower than the return air temperature.
When the microprocessor decides that the return chilled water temperature is cold
enough the first cooling band is the modulating valve control method, and the
second band, added to the first band, is for the compressors as in the normal

An addition program available with the Dual Cooling option is called Minimum
Chilled Water Temperature. This program allows the end user to select the
minimum chilled water temperature that permits simultaneous operation of the
chilled water control and compressor control. When the supply chilled water
temperature decreases to this programmed value ONLY the chilled water valve
control is operational, the compressors are locked out.
Staged Electric Reheat
The basic temperature heating control band is established at the temperature set
point with the length equal to ½ of the programmed temperature proportional band
divided by the number of reheat stages.
The Liebert DS units are supplied with three (3) reheat stages (elements), each
stage is rated at 1/3 of the unit capacity. The three (3) stages will operate in an
on/ off configuration to reheat the unit discharge air as it enters the space.
The temperature controller activates the first electric heating stage when the return
air temperature decreases to 33% of the heating proportional band. The second
electric heating stage activates when the return air temperature decreases to 66%
21

of the heating proportional band. The third electric heating stage activates when
the return air temperature decreases to 100% of the heating proportional band.
The temperature controller deactivates the third heating stage when the return air
temperature increases to 66% of the heating proportional control band value. The
second heating is deactivated when the return air temperature increases to 33% of
the heating proportional control band value. The first heating stage is deactivated
when the return air temperature increases to the temperature set point value or
0% of the heating proportional control band value.

Humidity Control
Humidification and/ or Dehumidification Required, in
Percent (%)
The humidity control programs for the iCOM microprocessor is based on a
calculated percent (%RH) requirement for humidification and/ or dehumidification.
This percent (%RH) requirement is determined by the control type (algorithm)
selected by the user.
The two (2) user selectable humidity control programs are:
•
Absolute Humidity, grains of moisture in the air
•
Relative Humidity (%RH)
Humidity Control Program Types
Absolute (predictive) Humidity Control – Factory Default Setting
Absolute (predictive) humidity control is based on the moisture content in the
return air. The iCOM microprocessor control automatically adjusts the humidity
control as the return air temperature deviates from the programmed temperature
set point. This calculation converts the return temperature and humidity values to
a moisture content value defined as either grains per cubic foot or grains per
pound. This recalculated content value is compared to the content control band
that is determined by the:
•
Programmed temperature set point
•
Programmed humidity set point in %RH
•
Programmed humidity proportional band in %RH
This automatic adjustment results in a predictive humidity control response. With
absolute humidity control, the humidity control program is automatically adjusted
approximately 2% RH for each degree difference between the return air
temperature and the temperature set point. Note the following example:

The program can be analyzed using the Moisture Content Charts supplied in a

the humidity value in %RH, not moisture content. The moisture content (grains)
values are used only in the internal control program calculation. The LCD display
will indicate relative humidity percentage for both methods of control. If the
absolute method of control is selected, the adjusted humidity reading will be
shown.
When utilizing the absolute (predictive) humidity control program feature,
the humidity level is automatically adjusted ~ 2% RH for each degree
difference between the return air temperature and the temperature set point.
When absolute humidity control is used, over dehumidification is avoided in the
space. When overcooling occurs, causing an increase in the relative humidity
reading, the humidity control program “predicts” what the RH will be when the
dehumidification cycle ends and the temperature returns to the programmed set
point. This allows the dehumidification cycle to end at the proper time.
25
iCOM Controls Training and Service Manual
Relative Humidity Control
Relative humidity control is based on the humidity content in the return air. The
iCOM microprocessor control determines the unit humidification/ dehumidification
operation by comparing the return air humidity value to the control band that is
determined by the:
•
Programmed humidity set point in %RH
•
Programmed humidity proportional band in %RH
Operations and Charts
The humidity proportional control band value is divided into two parts: the humidity
set point plus ½ of the programmed humidity proportional band for
dehumidification operation and the humidity set point minus ½ of the programmed
humidity proportional band for humidification operation.
A humidity dead band can also be programmed into the control to shift the
humidification and/ or dehumidification on/ off operations away from the humidity
set point.
This programmed humidity dead band value is divided into two parts: the humidity
set point plus ½ of the dead band – no dehumidification operation and the humidity
set point minus ½ of the band – no humidification operation.
The humidity set point range is adjustable from 1 – 80% RH in increments of 1%
RH. The humidity proportional band range is adjustable from 1 – 20% RH in
increments of 1% RH. The humidity dead band range is adjustable from
0 – 50% RH in increments of 1% RH.
Humidifier Operation
The Relative Humidity control program is used to illustrate the humidification
operation in the following examples. The basic humidification control band is
established at the humidity set point with the length equal to ½ of the programmed
humidity proportional band value. The Liebert DS units are supplied with an
infrared humidifier rated at the unit capacity.
The humidity controller activates the infrared humidifier when the return air
humidity level decreases to 100% of the humidity proportional band. The
humidifier makeup water solenoid valve also operates during humidification
operation based on a timing sequence.
The humidity controller deactivates the infrared humidifier and makeup water
solenoid valve when the return air humidity level increases to 50% of the humidity
proportional control band value.

Autoflush Control for Infrared Large (IFL) or Small (IFS)
Pans
The Autoflush Water-Level Control software program is an integral part of the
infrared humidifier system. The program automatically controls a water makeup
valve to maintain the proper water level in the humidifier pan during operation.
When a call for humidification exists, the program performs a series of checks.
The first check to see how long the infrared humidifier has been off. If the off time
is equal to or greater than the programmed value (factory default is 15 hours), it is
assumed that the pan is dry and a program called pre-fill is initiated to add water to
the pan. During the pre-fill operation the infrared lamps are inactive. The pre-fill
time is programmable with an adjustable range of 1 to 120 seconds for either pan
size. The factory default for a large (IFL) pan is 60 seconds and for a small (IFS)
pan is 30 seconds.
28
iCOM Control Training and Service Manual
If the off time is less than 15 hours (or user programmed value) the pre-fill program
is bypassed and the infrared lamps and water valve are activated at the same time
to fill the pan to the proper water level and initiate humidification.
During normal infrared humidification operation the water makeup valve is
periodically closed (no pan fill) and opened (pan fill) based on a timing sequence
to allow for the evaporation of water from the pan (see flow chart below).
With the humidifier water flush rate set at the factory default value of 150% the
water makeup valve will open for 7 minutes of fill time with an off time of 45
seconds between fill cycles for a small pan. For a large pan water makeup valve
will open for 10 minutes of fill time with an off time of 80 seconds between fill
cycles. The user can modify the percentage from 110% to a maximum of 500% in
1% increments.

Dehumidification Operation
The Relative Humidity control program is used to illustrate the dehumidification
operation in the following examples. The basic dehumidification control band is
established at the humidity set point with the length equal to ½ of the programmed
humidity proportional band value.
The humidity controller activates dehumidification operation when the return air
humidity level increases to 100% of the humidity proportional band. The humidity
controller deactivates dehumidification operation when the return air humidity level
decreases to 0% of the humidity proportional control band value.
1-Stage Dehumidification, Compressorized Direct Expansion (DX)
Systems
The Liebert DS unit is supplied with two (2) compressors. Under normal
operation, the lead compressor is used for sensible cooling and the lag
compressor is used for either additional cooling or for dehumidification control.
The optional hot gas bypass solenoid valve is de-energized during
dehumidification.
If single compressor dehumidification is selected, the lag compressor is activated
by the humidity controller when the return air humidity level increases to 100% of
the humidity proportional band.
The humidity controller deactivates the lag compressor when the return air
humidity level decreases to 50% of the humidity proportional control band value.

Reheating during Dehumidification
The Parameter Electric Reheat Enabled defines how the reheats react when the
return air temperature decreases below the temperature set point during the
33
iCOM Controls Training and Service Manual
dehumidification process. The end user can choose to select from the following
selections:
Parameter Operation
No
No electric reheat allowed during compressorized
dehumidification operation.
Normal
Electric reheat operates as normal. A decrease in
return air temperature below set point will start
reheats as described previously in his chapter.
Delayed
No low limit reached / low limit reset: heaters
disabled. Only one of two compressors operating in
dehum or low limit 1 reached: heaters enabled
Normal or Delayed Reheat (2-Stage Dehumidification Only)
When normal reheat (factory default) control is selected, the unit reheats are not
disabled during dehumidification, even if both compressors are operating. As the
return air temperature decreases below the temperature set point the reheats will
stage on and off as described earlier in this chapter.
If delayed reheat is selected and both compressors are operating for
dehumidification control, the reheats are disabled until only one compressor is
required. If, during reheat disable, the return air temperature decreases far
enough below the temperature set point to require 150% total available reheat
capacity, then dehumidification is disabled and reheats are activated.
When the return temperature raises to the point where reheat is no longer
required, then dehumidification operation is re-enabled. However, if the amount of
time that both compressors were operating prior to being disabled by the low
temperature condition was less than 10 minutes, then only one compressor is
allowed to operate for subsequent dehumidification requirements. This prevents
excessive system cycling, which can occur if the room heat load is small. Once
the requirement for dehumidification is no longer present, then both compressors
are enabled.
Caution:
Dehumidification with normal reheat allows for operating both compressors and
reheats simultaneously. It is very important that the electrical service to the unit be
sized and wired for this option if selected. If not sized properly the electrical
service could experience nuisance trips and or possible damage to building circuit
breakers (or Fuses) and wiring.

Fan Alarm / Fan settings
The fan operation is controlled by two (2) digital devices: the Loss of Airflow
differential pressure switch and the Main fan Overload motor protection. The
time delay at the unit start is always 5 seconds shorter than the control delay.
High Pressure Cutout
The control uses high head lockout functionality. If one compressor trips or is
locked out on high head, the other compressor turns on when the space
temperature increases 1°F. Pressing the alarm button on the display twice can
reset high head Alarm. A lockout condition occurs on the third trip and must be
reset by turning the main power switch to off then back on.
Suction Pressure Transducer
The suction pressure transducer operation is only on air conditioning products (not
chiller applications). Transducer measurements are made at least once every 1
second. With all other operating times for all compressors, additional
measurements, shall be taken based on operation “at limit conditions” for 5
seconds and shall not include readings taken during Pumpdown or Winter Start
Kit (WSK) timeout.
Call for Cooling
The following applies for both R22 and R407C systems and applies to all
compressor types. The call for cooling opens the Liquid Line Solenoid Valve
(LLSV). Note: on units with Digital Scroll Compressors the unloader is energized
0.1 second before the compressor contactor is energized. On air-cooled units with
fan speed type condenser (FSC) the low pressure start threshold is 35psiG
(50psiA). On air-cooled units with lee-temp control (LT) and all fluid cooled
units the low-pressure start threshold is 60psiG (75psiA).
All compressorized units use the following start
sequence:
Open LLSV, if WSK is set to 0, wait for suction pressure to reach setting, then start
compressor and freeze protection timer.
If WSK is set greater than 0, operate the compressor for the WSK override time
and monitor suction transducer value.
If pressure is achieved the compressor is allowed to operate, and the freeze
protection timer is started.
If pressure is not achieved, turn compressor off and leave LLSV open.
If pressure is achieved within next 30 seconds the compressor is allowed to
operate, and the freeze protection timer is started.
36
iCOM Control Training and Service Manual
The Startup and Freeze Protection Program
The sequence for the call for cooling with the program features is as follows:
The need for cooling is defined by the control setting for the temperature setpoint,
proportional band, and deadband (if used). At this point the Winter Start Kit (WSK)
time delay is the wait period for the compressor to run without the indication of the
low-pressure condition (also known as LP bypass). The WSK time delay is
programmable with a range of 0 - 5 minutes. If the LP switch setting is achieved in
this time then full cooling is in process with the Freeze Protection (FP) now
watching the LP for an additional 10 minutes (fixed). If the LP remains closed the
cooling process continues.
If the WSK is not made in the set time period the cooling process stops and waits
an additional 5 minutes with the compressor off (no pumpdown). The liquid line
solenoid valve will remain open during this time period. If the LP switch is made
the control will now advance and wait for the freeze protection time delay as stated
as above. If the LP switch does not prove in the WSK time delay period plus the 5
minute wait period, the compressor is locked off and the Low Suction Pressure
Alarm will activate. A power off/ on reset is required to reset the cooling function.
If the WSK is made and the control is in the 10 minute Freeze Protection (FP) wait
time period and this function does not prove the LP the control will go into
additional 10 minute wait (fixed), with the compressor off (no pumpdown) and the
liquid line solenoid valve to remain open. If the freeze protection does not make

during the second time frame the cooling process locks off and will require a
power off sequence.
Next Maintenance Calculation
Foreword
The next maintenance calculation will help run the Liebert Environmental unit in an
optimum way, to ensure minimum components stress resulting in increased
reliability.
Calculation of next Maintenance Parameters
The following components are included in the calculation individually:
• Fan(s)
• Compressor 1
• Compressor 2
• Electric Heaters
• Humidifier
For each individual component the next maintenance will be calculated from
following parameters:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
Standard service interval (1, 2, 4 or 6 times a year, to be programmed).
Working hours (counted).
Number of starts (counted).
Average running time (calculated).
Optimum number of starts per hour (to be programmed).
Maximum number of starts per hour (to be programmed).
Maximum bonus to enlarge time to next maintenance (to be programmed).
Maximum penalty to reduce time to next maintenance (to be programmed).
The Maintenance Calculation is done as follows:
Basic: maintenance frequency (1). The control counts the working hours of the
component, as well as the number of starts.
The working hours and the number of starts are compared with the programmed
optimum / maximum starts per hour. This results in “Wellness Factor”.
This factor, in accordance to the service interval, will add a “Bonus” to increase the
time before the next maintenance, or will add a “Penalty” to decrease the time
before the next maintenance. In simple words: If a component starts very often,
the time to next maintenance will be decreased, if it starts rarely, the time to next
maintenance will be increased.
38
iCOM Control Training and Service Manual
The control always takes the component with the most on/ off (cycling) as the
reference component, which asking for the nearest maintenance (example: if the
fan runs continuously, but the compressor switches on/off all the time, the next
maintenance will be calculated from the compressor).
Alarms or warnings (like clogged filter, high or low pressure, fans alarm etc.) will
decrease the time to next maintenance immediately to 0. If the alarm was reset,
the original situation will be displayed again, but the alarm will be counted in the
diagnostics window.
The display’s main window provides information about the next maintenance:
a bar graph (graphical display screen) will fill in, as the next maintenance gets
closer (the width of the graph equals to the standard maintenance Interval (1, 2, 4
or 6 times a year). The date of the next maintenance is also displayed.
Parameters for next Maintenance Calculation:
General Maintenance Settings:
Maintenance Frequency: can be set at 1, 2, 4 or 6 times a year. “NO” means
the maintenance calculation program is disabled.
Maximum Bonus: this value increases the time to next maintenance with the set
value, if all components run in optimum way (number of starts, average running
time).
Maximum Penalty: this 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: this date can be will be set by the calculations and the
service-engineer and others to view.
Service-Engineer: name can be added and edited.
Reset: puts all counters of all components (fans, compressors, ect.) to 0, and
starts new maintenance calculation (always reset after maintenance is completed).
Fans / Heaters / Humidifier Settings / Compressor 1 /2 Settings
Number of starts and Working hours: counted from the last maintenance. Total
working hours can be read in the standard working hours window (customer

iCOM Controls Training and Service Manual
Starts per Day Optimum: the number of individual component starts that is
considered as good or optimum. To be set by Service Engineer.
Starts per Day Worst: the number of individual component starts that is
considered as “hunting” or worst case. To be set by Service Engineer.
Number of Alarms: counts the number of alarms occurring between service
intervals.
Actual Bonus: calculated from “number of starts” and “average working time”
values. The result can be positive (for a bonus) or negative (for a penalty). This
value influences the time remaining to the next maintenance.
Shared Parameters an understanding
If we have multiple units in the same room (zone) they will need to communicate
with each other to avoid opposite operational functions. This will prevent the
cooling and heating functions from operating at the same time on different units.
This condition called “fighting “ often exists in the room due to imbalanced loads
and the crossing of airflow conditions. This is also considered when using the
Lead/ Lag and Cascade functions.
When a system is setup the parameters are shared by all units. The unit selected
as the Lead Unit (#1 unit) is used to program the system, if program parameters
are not set in this unit they will be ignored. This is true for all of the active units in
the system. However, if a unit in the system is not active it will be ignored until it is
active and the parameters will be shared within 2 minutes of activation.
Shared Temperature and Humidity parameters example:
Two units share the master Temperature Control (1/2) Proportional Band Setting
such as 10°F, and then each unit will use the master band divided by 2 (units) or
5°F proportional bands. To avoid the cooling hunting process or compressor
cycling too quickly, the primary temperature proportional band needs to be set
wide enough to compensate for the number of units in the system setup. Note that
shared parameters are not used on single unit applications.
Heating, humidification, and dehumidification will follow the same example with
each function starting in each unit one after the other or in sequence.
In Chilled Water units all valves operate are in parallel but this operation may be
overridden by the setting and use of the Supply Limit sensor. This parameter is
controlled by the individual unit. Here we may see uneven valve positioning
(operation) in some of the units.
40
iCOM Control Training and Service Manual
Freecooling and Dual cooling will operate in the same manner as chilled water
with the supervision of the Supply Limit, again showing different valve positions on
the units
If in a Freecooling or Dual Cooling unit if the limit of the coil operation is detected
(no free cooling or no CW available) the valve will close off and unit will become
DX operation in the system.
Networking and Functions
Unit 2 Unit (U2U) Communications by networking will allow the following
functions to be placed into operation when the requirements exist. The user
must install the correct hardware and properly program the units for the
functionality.
In the iCOM Network the owner may perform the following functions:
The Teamwork Mode functions, which allow multiple stages of Cooling/ Heating
and/ or Humidification/ Dehumidification. The ability to prevent the units fighting is
included in this feature.
The Lead/ Lag function, which allows one or more units to be set as “Running and
Standby” for activation in case of an alarm. This also has the ability to be
programmed in a rotation for assurance of functional standbys.
The Cascade function, which allows additional units to be staged on based on the
temperature or humidity requirement.
Understanding the iCOM Network setup process:
To setup a system network with the iCOM control requires a complete
understanding of the control processes and parameter programming to insure the
proper functional operation without incident. To insure the setup is correct and
that the operation will function as selected you need to map both the room layout
and the unit setup. First, read and record all programmed settings in all of the
single units. Second, document the network parameter settings that are needed
and identify the numerical order of the units to be networked. The order of the
setup process is very important.
41
iCOM Controls Training and Service Manual
The Basics for Cooling Unit Placement:
Installation instructions are found in the product manuals for the Cooling units.
Networking setup should include these additional factors for planning.
•
•
•
Locations of heat loads in conditioned space.
Air distribution for cooling.
Number of operating units versus standby.
The Basics for Hardware:
Multi-unit networking requires the following hardware:
Minimum Network Switch Requirements:
• IEEE 802.3, IEEE 802.3u
• 10/100 Mbps speed
• Multiple RJ-45 ports – one shared RJ45 uplink
CAT 5 patch cables (straight through) in the proper lengths not to exceed
150 ft. maximum length each. One for each board and display added into
the iCOM network. Cable management will apply.
The Basic for Programming:
An IP address number will be used to identify each receiver/ sender of information.
(See Computer and Network Terms in Training and Service Manual)
The iCOM Network is a Class C Private Network and will use the 192.168.254.xxx
series of static IP address. This has nothing to do with the local building or owner
network. The iCOM Network may only be attached to these networks through a
WEB Card or 485 Card using the Liebert Intellislot.
A series of basic rules must be followed to connect and program the units for this
private iCOM Network. See the following rules.
1. Small Displays are CAN connections only, programming of single unit
parameters is required.
2. Small Displays CANNOT look at or program other iCOM Network functions.
3. Small Displays may be networked with a CAT 5 crossover cable (2 units).
4. All Large Displays and Control Boards will use a CAT 5 or greater straight
through (patch) cables to connect to the switch.
5. One large Display (Wall Mount) with a separate power adapter may be used
with multiple units (Control Boards and Small Displays) through the network
switch.
42
iCOM Control Training and Service Manual
6. Each set of unit control boards must be set up individually, then connected to
the network switch and checked before the next board can be setup
6a. Large Displays and Control Boards must each be programmed with a
different IP Address.
Example: Display: 192.168.254.001
Example: Control Board: 192.168.254.010
6b. Each Display and Control Board in the iCOM network must have the
same Gateway IP address.
Example: Gateway IP: 192.168.254.75
6c. Each Display and Control Board in the iCOM network must have the
same Netmask IP address.
Example: Netmask IP = 255.255.255.000
6d. The Unit to Unit (U2U) address must be programmed in the necessary
order for setup.
Example: Unit Display: 33 – 64 and Unit Control Board: 1 - 32

Teamwork
Teamwork Modes
Teamwork is the ability to group unit functionality, while connected in a network, to
provide the ability to work together as a team and address control functions in
three different teamwork modes:
“No” Teamwork
In this mode all units are working independently for control and functionality. No
values or sensors are shared. While in this mode units may be setup to provide
the Lead/ Lag function and rotation, however, units may not be setup in the
Cascade functionality.
Teamwork Mode 1
In this mode unit parameters (system settings) are shared if the system value is
set in any of the units, all units will follow with same settings. (See Glossary of
Unit and System parameters section).
The return air temperature and humidity sensed by each unit in the network will be
averaged and used for control by the lead unit.
The Lead Unit designation #1 and will provide the calculations for the system
requirements and will provide the calculated divisions of the proportional band to
each of the units to start the required operations. The width of the proportional
band in multiple unit configurations is shown as normal, but internally the lead unit
(unit #1) sends the requests to the other units and multiplies this width by the
number of available units in the program.
To be an available unit for operations in this mode:
a) The unit cannot be in a standby (lead/lag) configuration: all units must be on
b) The units in the cascade function are not off or set with alarms functions to
be switch off.
This mode of control will drive all Chilled Water or FreeCooling actuators in parallel
for all units operating in the teamwork mode. The individual unit will control its
own Dual Cooling switchover functions, the low temperature functions and low
discharge air functions.
Teamwork Mode 1 will rotate the lead unit by 1 unit every 24 hours.
48
iCOM Control Training and Service Manual
Teamwork Mode 2
In teamwork mode 2 all system parameters are shared equally as in teamwork
mode 1. The lead unit will define the temperature and humidity averages for the
operational needs if there is a request for cooling, heating, dehumidification or
humidification.
If there is a temperature control request because of a need for either cooling or
heating (determined by highest or lowest temperature of all the units), teamwork
mode 2 activates all of the connected units. Each unit will operate in the cooling or
heating mode using their individual temperature control settings. If in the cooling
mode the heating function is disabled in all units. If in the heating mode the
cooling function is disabled in all units.
If there is a humidity control request because of a need for either humidification or
dehumidification (determined by highest or lowest humidity of all the units),
teamwork mode 2 activates all of the connected units. Each unit will operate in the
humidification or dehumidification mode using their individual humidity control
settings. If in the humidification mode the dehumidification function is disabled in
all units. If in the dehumidification mode the humidification function is disabled in
all units.
Teamwork Mode 2 does not allow unit rotation (lead/ lag), unbalanced unit working
hours are to be expected.
Unit Lead/ Lag or Running/ Standby Function
This program will allow the user to select the multi-unit function of Lead and Lag,
or as sometimes stated Running and Standby, by selecting the number of running
and standby units to provide the redundancy needed in the space.
Typical Lead/ Lag (Running/ Standby) Function
The lead/ lag operational sequence has a lead (running) unit operating and an
alarm becomes active (selected by alarm programming). The active alarm in the
lead unit will cause the first lag (standby) unit to active and maintain the space
conditions. If multiple units are selected as lag (standby) the units will continue to
rotate on active alarms as long as a lag unit is available. If there are no lag
(standby) units left in the sequence the first failed will restart (if not in a critical
alarm state i.e. fan overload, etc).
Note: The unit with the active alarm will operate in the fan only mode for 3
minutes before going into a standby mode to stabilize conditions, then it will turn
off.
49
iCOM Controls Training and Service Manual
The Lead/ Lag function may be used in the either the No Teamwork Mode, in
Teamwork 1 Mode and in Teamwork 2 Mode. One or more units can be defined
as lag (standby), the normal status of the lag (standby) unit(s) is off.
The lag or standby function can be performed as a daily rotation (setting the time),
weekly rotation (setting the day of the week and time) or as a monthly rotation.
The units will rotate based on the programmed number of units:
Example A: if the rotation is set in the “Rotate by 1” parameter, the standby units
will rotate from 1 to 2 or 2 to 3 or 3 to 4 or 4 to1 in a basic 4 unit configuration.
Example B: if the rotation is set in the “Rotate by 2” parameter, the standby units
will rotate from 1 - 2 to 3 - 4 or 3 - 4 to 1 - 2 in a basic 4 unit configuration.
Standby & Cascade
This program function will activate the lag (standby) unit(s) when an active alarm
in a running unit is detected. This program parameter will also provide for unit
staging. With an increase or decrease in either the temperature and/ or humidity
conditions is sensed in the operating units the additional standby unit(s) will be
activated to aid in the control of the space requirements.
The Cascade function operates in Teamwork Mode 1 only. The Cascaded units
are not part of the system temperature and humidity average.
Settings are:
Cascade Active
Cascade Cool/ Heat and Humid./ Dehumid.
Cascade for Cooling and Heating
Cascade for Cooling only

The temperature sensor senses a rise in temperature. The rise is transmitted to
the Central Processing Unit (CPU). The CPU looks into its memory for information
and instructions on what to do with the rise in temperature. The CPU then makes
the decision to call for cooling.
Isolation
We use the opto-isolator and the triac to isolate areas of control and voltage.
There are three areas of control and two voltage levels. Digital control comes from
the microprocessor at 5 VDC and the other voltage level is 24 VAC. One voltage
is used to turn on the triac and the other is used to operate the load device.

BASIC OPERATION OF THE TRIAC
To better understand the operation of the triac, we need to look at the movement
of electrons in a special type of material used in electronics. Here we have a
semiconductor material with what is called a depletion region. The depletion
region restricts the flow of electrons to a point.
++++
++++
++++
- - - - - - - - - -
Depletion Region
Semiconductor
By forcing more electrons in to the depletion region, we can cause an overflow of
these electrons resulting in electron flow that in turn produces current. When we
have current flow, the device is on.

Semiconductor Showing No Movement of Electrons
If we add a third terminal to this simple device and call it the Gate, we have a basic
triac. By sending electrons to the gate, which is connected to the depletion region,
we create an overflow condition. You can see how this device can be turned on or
off by this process. Now to put this in perspective with AC voltage circuits, this ON
and OFF condition takes place every half cycle. When the AC voltage is removed
from the gate, conduction stops.

The triacs that Liebert uses are standard in the industry and are rated at a 2-amp
capacity. You can check these devices for proper operation while they are
connected in the circuit. If the load is removed from the device, you can get a
false reading from the meter. This is because the voltage potential is present and
is detected by the meter. When the load is applied to the device, the potential is
not detected by the meter. To test a triac for proper operation, energize the circuit
and connect the load.

Basic Operation of the Opto-Isolator
The purpose of the opto-isolator is to provide isolation of two voltage sources.
This allows a DC voltage source to activate an AC voltage load device or allows
an AC voltage source to provide a DC signal.
We are working with two types of circuits, an input and an output. Therefore, we
require two types of opto-isolators (referred to as optos).
The output opto uses a DC voltage source to activate a Light Emitting Diode (LED)
internal to the IC chip. This causes a triac, also internal to the IC chip, to switch
ON allowing current to flow to the AC load device.

iCOM Diagnostics / Service Mode Program
The iCOM controller has a valuable tool built into software under the SERVICE
MENU. This program allows the user to evacuate and charge the refrigerant circuit
at installation, turn on/off all loads (outputs) for testing, and allows user to check all
inputs.
The procedure is as follows:
1- From the main screen select the SERVICE MENU parameters.
2- In the SERVICE MENU screen select the SERVICE icon.
3- Enter password and scroll to MANUAL MODE, select YES with the up key.
4- Now scroll to Fan On and select ON with the up key. The fan must be on to
operate loads in this mode. You must turn off the fan and service mode when
completed.
The Compressor 1 and 2 selections are for the ON/OFF and RUN, EVACUATE,
and CHARGE modes.
When user scrolls to the Compressor 1 or 2 positions in the parameters list he
must press enter to select the first item. Enter again will move the cursor to the
ON/OFF selection first (far right item) then using the up arrow key the compressor
may be turn on and down key will turn off. Now with the cursor on the ON/OFF
position, now use the right arrow key to select the RUN, EVACUATE, CHARGE
function and the up or down arrow key to make changes. The RUN selection is the
normal operating position.
Parameters list is found on pages in Chapter 2

Basic Troubleshooting Steps:
Example: Unit load is not energizing.
Programming:
1. Read and record all program parameter values.
2. Read and record all DIP (control) switch positions on all boards. Check all
jumpers on each board, check for the CAN healthy light on the boards and
check programming per the read and record sheet in appropriate manuals to
verify selected options.
3. Turn Unit off with ON/OFF button and reboot system power (disconnect switch
off - on) to reconfigure system. If programming error is detected, recheck unit
for proper operation.
If problem is not resolved in programming section, begin the signal flow check.
Signal Flow Check: Assumption is the unit is calling for a mechanical operation
but the load is not activated. Using the appropriate control training and service
manual, identify the output opto-isolator to be checked, locate the opto-isolator on
the PCB and perform the following.
DC Voltage check:
1. Using a digital voltmeter check for the correct VDC signal at the output optoisolator. Pin 1 referenced to - VDC will show low VDC (approximately 1.2
VDC) if the microprocessor control side of the device is functioning. A high
VDC (approximately 3.3 VDC) indicates a microprocessor control problem. A
meter reading of 0 VDC indicates a loss of microprocessor voltage, check VDC
at the power supply referenced +VDC to -VDC should be approximately 3.3
VDC.
2. This check involves the microprocessor. To bypass the microprocessor
completely, jumper from Pin 2 on the output opto-isolator to -VDC. As soon as
the jumper is applied the load device should activate. If the load device
activates the problem is in the microprocessor itself or the programming. If the
load device does not activate continue the signal flow check.
AC Voltage check:
1. Place the digital VOM meter on AC voltage scale and verify that 24 VAC is
being applied to the output opto-isolator by placing the VOM between Pin 4
and the proper transformer ground connection. To verify that the switch leg of
the output opto-isolator is working properly place the VOM between Pin 6 and
the proper transformer ground connection. A high VAC (approximately 24
VAC) display indicates a closed switch leg; a low VAC indicates an open switch
leg.
124
iCOM Control Training and Service Manual
2. If the programming is correct and the output opto-isolator is functioning
properly but the load device is not activated the next step is to check the
triac and hard wiring to the load device. Verify that 24 VAC is being applied
to Pin 1 of the triac, place the VOM leads between Pin 1 and the proper
transformer ground connection. If 24 VAC is not present at Pin 1 of the
triac backtrack the circuit to the proper secondary hot of the control
transformer.
If 24 VAC is present perform the following:
Select the appropriate diagnostics function from the control menu; use the training
and service manual for reference. During the TEST OUTPUTS function the green
LED on the microprocessor should light. If the LED lights check the hardware from
the plug to the load device. If the LED does not light run the TEST CONTROL
BOARD diagnostics function. If board failure is displayed contact your local sales
office.
Note: Triacs are current limiting devices; therefore the load device must be
connected to obtain valid voltage readings when doing VOM checks and circuit
troubleshooting. Repair or replace any missing or defective components in the
circuit.
Mechanical Problems: If the failure of the load device to activate is determined
to be mechanical in nature consult the appropriate Liebert system operation and
maintenance, reference the individual component manufacturers literature or
contact your local Liebert representative.

Moisture Content Charts
The following charts show moisture content of various levels of relative humidity
for given temperatures. Follow the procedures below to use the charts:
STEP 1: Locate the chart for the temperature with which you are working.
STEP 2: Locate the line with the relative humidity with which you are
working.
STEP 3: Read the moisture content of the relative humidity in either grains
per cubic foot or grains per pound of air.
For example, you have a room temperature of 70°F and 50% relative humidity.
STEP 1: Locate the chart for 70°F.
STEP 2: Locate the line with relative humidity 50%.
STEP 3: Read the moisture content value of 50% relative humidity (4.0275
grains per cubic foot of air OR 55.86143 grains per pound of air).

iCOM Control Training and Service Manual
Unit Code Description
The iCOM controller uses a system parameters auto configuration methodology.
The unit will have a code on a serial tag displayed on the front of the electric
panel. This code when entered during the factory QA process will define unit
configuration and auto set various parameters for functionality. The sheets in the
back of this manual will allow the service technician to understand and be able to
enter this unit code manually if necessary through the control panel and
the FACTORY SETTINGS parameter. The parameter codes are listed in Chapter
as A001 to A011. The UNIT CODE ID numbers must be entered in groups of six at
a time. When all ID numbers of the UNIT CODE are entered user must select
A008 to “Send and Execute Unit Code” then verify parameter code A011 for a
“VALID” status. If UNIT CODE is missing or lost the unit will not start until the
correct code is entered and saved.
The UNIT CODE sheets will show a VALUE field on the left of the first page and
followed by 18 columns of unit configuration definitions.
THIS UNIT CODE IS NOT TO BE CHANGED UNLESS INSTRUCTED BY A
FACTORY SERVICE TECHNICIAN.

Troubleshooting Checklist
1. Check the obvious before beginning troubleshooting.
A. Be sure that a remote control switch has not been shut off.
B. Be sure that the communication cable is properly connected.
C. Be sure that power is reaching all modules associated with the system.
2. Power down the entire unit during the process of removing or replacing any
component or cable.
A. Serious damage to components may result if this step is not taken.
B. After removal or replacement actions, power may be restored to the unit.
3. Wear a personal ground strap when handling printed circuit boards or
associated connecting cables. Static electricity, besides being annoying, can
damage delicate electronic components.
4. Protect exposed components from accidental contact by personnel or dropped
hardware or tools.
5. When checking voltage, use the correct reference (ground) points. The
chassis is not always the correct ground point, especially within the electronic
housing.
6. Reassemble modules correctly.
A. Observe assembled appearance prior to disassembly.
B. Replace all hardware (especially insulating or nylon hardware) in the same
places and in the same relationship as the original.
7. When advised to check and replace cables, do the following:
A. Inspect for damaged insulation, broken conductors, and/or loose
connectors.
B. Check continuity with an ohm meter (Flex cable while checking.).
C. Make certain that connectors mate firmly with proper receptacles.
8. When changing set points to cause a call for heating or cooling, set the points
at least 10°-15° above (for heating) or below (for cooling) the present room
temperature.
9. Bring the room temperature level to within the working range of the equipment
(35°-90°F) before attempting troubleshooting.
10. Bring the room humidity level to within the working range of the equipment
(35%-65%) before attempting troubleshooting.

Computer and Network Terms
Agent: A program that performs some information gathering or processing task in
the background. Typically, an agent is given a very small and well-defined task.
Although the theory behind agents has been around for some time, agents have
become more prominent with the recent growth of the Internet. Many companies
now sell software that enables you to configure an agent to search the Internet for
certain types of information.
In computer science, there is a school of thought that believes that the human
mind essentially consists of thousands or millions of agents all working in parallel.
To produce real artificial intelligence, this school holds, we should build computer
systems that also contain many agents and systems for arbitrating among the
agents' competing results.
BOOTP: Short for Bootstrap Protocol, an Internet protocol that enables a diskless
workstation to discover its own IP address, the IP address of a BOOTP server on
the network, and a file to be loaded into memory to boot the machine. This
enables the workstation to boot without requiring a hard or floppy disk drive. The
protocol is defined by RFC 951.
Cookie: A message given to a Web browser by a Web server. The browser
stores the message in a text file called cookie.txt. The message is then sent back
to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. The main
purpose of cookies is to identify users and possibly prepare customized Web
pages for them. When you enter a Web site using cookies, you may be asked to
fill out a form providing such information as your name and interests. This
information is packaged into a cookie and sent to your Web browser who stores it
for later use. The next time you go to the same Web site, your browser will send
the cookie to the Web server. The server can use this information to present you
with custom Web pages. So, for example, instead of seeing just a generic
welcome page you might see a welcome page with your name on it.
DHCP: Short for Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, a protocol for assigning
dynamic IP addresses to devices on a network. With dynamic addressing, a
device can have a different IP address every time it connects to the network. In
some systems, the device's IP address can even change while it is still connected.
DHCP also supports a mix of static and dynamic IP addresses.
Dynamic addressing simplifies network administration because the software keeps
track of IP addresses rather than requiring an administrator to manage the task.
This means that a new computer can be added to a network without the hassle of
manually assigning it a unique IP address. Many ISPs use dynamic IP addressing
for dial-up users. DHCP client support is built into Windows 95 and NT
workstation. NT 4 server includes both client and server support.

Ethernet: A local-area network (LAN) architecture developed by Xerox
Corporation in cooperation with DEC and Intel in 1976. Ethernet uses a bus or
star topology and supports data transfer rates of 10 Mbps. The Ethernet
specification served as the basis for the IEEE 802.3 standard, which specifies the
physical and lower software layers. Ethernet uses the CSMA/CD access method
to handle simultaneous demands. It is one of the most widely implemented LAN
standards.
A newer version of Ethernet, called 100Base-T (or Fast Ethernet), supports data
transfer rates of 100 Mbps. And the newest version, Gigabit Ethernet supports
data rates of 1 gigabit (1,000 megabits) per second.
Internet: A global network connecting millions of computers. More than 100
countries are linked into exchanges of data, news and opinions. Unlike online
services, which are centrally controlled, the Internet is decentralized by design.
Each Internet computer, called a host, is independent. Its operators can choose
which Internet services to use and which local services to make available to the
global Internet community. Remarkably, this anarchy by design works exceedingly
well. There are a variety of ways to access the Internet. Most online services,
such as America Online, offer access to some Internet services. It is also possible
to gain access through a commercial Internet Service Provider (ISP).
IP address: An identifier for a computer or device on a TCP/IP network.
Networks using the TCP/IP protocol route messages based on the IP address of
the destination. The format of an IP address is a 32-bit numeric address written as
four numbers separated by periods. Each number can be zero to 255. For
example, 1.160.10.240 could be an IP address. Within an isolated network, you
can assign IP addresses at random as long as each one is unique. However,
connecting a private network to the Internet requires using registered IP addresses
(called Internet addresses) to avoid duplicates.
The four numbers in an IP address are used in different ways to identify a
particular network and a host on that network. The InterNIC Registration Service
assigns Internet addresses from the following three classes.
• Class A - supports 16 million hosts on each of 127 networks
• Class B - supports 65,000 hosts on each of 16,000 networks
• Class C - supports 254 hosts on each of 2 million networks
The number of unassigned Internet addresses is running out, so a new classless
scheme called CIDR is gradually replacing the system based on classes A, B, and
C and is tied to adoption of IPv6.
Network: A group of two or more computer systems linked together. There are
many types of computer networks, including:
• local-area networks (LANs): The computers are geographically close
together (that is, in the same building).
161
iCOM Controls Training and Service Manual
•
•
•
•
wide-area networks (WANs): The computers are farther apart and are
connected by telephone lines or radio waves.
campus-area networks (CANs): The computers are within a limited
geographic area, such as a campus or military base.
metropolitan-area networks MANs): A data network designed for a town or
city.
home-area networks (HANs): A network contained within a user's home
that connects a person's digital devices.
In addition to these types, the following characteristics are also used to categorize
different types of networks:
• topology: The geometric arrangement of a computer system. Common
topologies include a bus, star, and ring. See the Network topology
diagrams in the Quick Reference section.
• protocol: The protocol defines a common set of rules and signals that
computers on the network use to communicate. One of the most popular
protocols for LANs is called Ethernet. Another popular LAN protocol for
PCs is the IBM token-ring network .
• architecture: Networks can be broadly classified as using either a peer-topeer or client/server architecture.
Computers on a network are sometimes called nodes. Computers and devices
that allocate resources for a network are called servers.
Network cross-over cable: A specially designed cable tin which the receive and
transmit lines (input and output) are crossed. Used to connect two computers
together or hubs. Also called a null modem cable using either RS-232 port
connectors or RJ-45 connectors.
Network interface card: Often abbreviated as NIC, an expansion board you
insert into a computer so the computer can be connected to a network. Most NICs
are designed for a particular type of network, protocol, and media, although some
can serve multiple networks.
Null-modem cable: A specially designed cable that allows you to connect two
computers directly to each other via their communications ports (RS-232 ports).
Null modems are particularly useful with portable computers because they enable
the portable computer to exchange data with a larger system.
Protocol: An agreed-upon format for transmitting data between two devices. The
protocol determines the following:
• the type of error checking to be used
• data compression method, if any
• how the sending device will indicate that it has finished sending a message
• how the receiving device will indicate that it has received a message
162
iCOM Control Training and Service Manual
There are a variety of standard protocols from which programmers can choose.
Each has particular advantages and disadvantages; for example, some are
simpler than others, some are more reliable, and some are faster. From a user's
point of view, the only interesting aspect about protocols is that your computer or
device must support the right ones if you want to communicate with other
computers. The protocol can be implemented either in hardware or in software.
RJ-45: Short for Registered Jack-45, an eight-wire connector used commonly to
connect computers onto a local-area networks (LAN), especially Ethernets. RJ45 connectors look similar to the ubiquitous RJ-11 connectors used for
connecting telephone equipment, but they are somewhat wider.
SNMP: Short for Simple Network Management Protocol, a set of protocols for
managing complex networks. The first versions of SNMP were developed in the
early 80s. SNMP works by sending messages, called protocol data units (PDUs),
to different parts of a network. SNMP-compliant devices, called agents, store data
about themselves in Management Information Bases (MIBs) and return this data to
the SNMP requesters.
SNMP 1 reports only whether a device is functioning properly. The industry has
attempted to define a new set of protocols called SNMP 2 that would provide
additional information, but the standardization efforts have not been successful.
Instead, network managers have turned to a related technology called RMON that
provides more detailed information about network usage.
TCP/IP: Abbreviation for Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol, the
suite of communications protocols used to connect hosts on the Internet. TCP/IP
uses several protocols, the two main ones being TCP and IP. TCP/IP is built into
the UNIX operating system and is used by the Internet, making it the de facto
standard for transmitting data over networks. Even network operating systems
that have their own protocols, such as NetWare, also support TCP/IP.
10BaseT: One of several adaptations of the Ethernet (IEEE 802.3) standard for
Local Area Networks (LANs). The 10Base-T standard (also called Twisted Pair
Ethernet) uses a twisted-pair cable with maximum lengths of 100 meters. The
cable is thinner and more flexible than the coaxial cable used for the 10Base-2 or
10Base-5 standards. Cables in the 10Base-T system connect with RJ-45
connectors. A star topology is common with 12 or more computers connected
directly to a hub or concentrator. The 10Base-T system operates at 10 Mbps and
uses baseband transmission methods.
163
iCOM Controls Training and Service Manual
Understanding IP Addressing: Every computer that communicates over the
Internet is assigned an IP address that uniquely identifies the device and
distinguishes it from other computers on the Internet. An IP address consists of 32
bits, often shown as 4 octets of numbers from 0-255 represented in decimal form
instead of binary form. For example, the IP address 168.212.226.204 in binary
form is: 10101000.11010100.11100010.11001100.
But it is easier for us to remember decimals than it is to remember binary
numbers, so we use decimals to represent the IP addresses when describing
them. However, the binary number is important because that will determine which
class of network the IP address belongs to. An IP address consists of two parts,
one identifying the network and one identifying the node, or host. The Class of the
address determines which part belongs to the network address and which part
belongs to the node address. All nodes on a given network share the same
network prefix but must have a unique host number.
Class A Network: Binary address start with 0, therefore the decimal number can
be anywhere from 1 to 126. The first 8 bits (the first octet) identify the network and
the remaining 24 bits indicate the host within the network. An example of a Class
A IP address is 102.168.212.226, where "102" identifies the network and
"168.212.226" identifies the host on that network.
Class B Network: Binary addresses start with 10, therefore the decimal number
can be anywhere from 128 to 191 (the number 127 is reserved for loopback and is
used for internal testing on the local machine). The first 16 bits (the first two
octets) identify the network and the remaining 16 bits indicate the host within the
network. An example of a Class B IP address is 168.212.226.204 where
"168.212" identifies the network and "226.204" identifies the host on that network.
Class C Network: Binary addresses start with 110, therefore the decimal number
can be anywhere from 192 to 223. The first 24 bits (the first three octets) identify
the network and the remaining 8 bits indicate the host within the network. An
example of a Class C IP address is 200.168.212.226 where "200.168.212"
identifies the network and "226" identifies the host on that network.
Class D Network: Binary addresses start with 1110, therefore the decimal number
can be anywhere from 224 to 239. Class D networks are used to support
multicasting.
Class E Network: Binary addresses start with 1111, therefore the decimal number
can be anywhere from 240 to 255. Class E networks are used for
experimentation. They have never been documented or utilized in a standard
way.

Network Information
Commonly known as: Network wire, Ethernet cable, Cat5 cable, the information
following will explain the connectivity for Liebert Environmental units.
Fundamentally, this section will explain the terms of networking so that you can
apply the information to building your own network. The parts and components
are discussed in generic fashion since equipment manufacturers and price range
of the equipment varies and changes on an almost daily basis. However, the
terms themselves stay relatively consistent, so purchasing or discussing your
needs with networking personnel remains the same.
What is networking?…
In it’s simplest form, a network can be created when 2 units are connected through
communication wires. This simple connection requires a special “crossover” cable
which “crosses” the receive and transmit lines (hence, the name of the cable) and
is readily available at your local computer store. However, for most applications,
the simpler and more generic installation requires network cables and a hub or
switch as explained below.
NETWORK CABLING
Twisted Pair Ethernet (10baseT), sometime also called "UTP" from "Unshielded
Twisted Pair", is based on using a cable and connectors similar to phone-wiring.
The cable is connected via an RJ-45 connectors to the network connection
installed in the Air Unit. The wire itself is generally called Category 5 wire.
Category 5 cable
RJ-45
UTP connector
HUBS AND SWITCHES
The opposite end of the network cable connects
each Air Unit to the "hub" or “switch”: these devices
amplify and distribute the signal to other connected
units. Switches and hubs range in prices from $20
to thousands depending on the application. Most
businesses have standardized on their networking equipment, so there is one
probably already installed. Hubs are like mechanical devices where the
connections themselves are automatically switched, allowing you to “bus” 2 or
more devices easily. In a hub, only 1 device can communicate at a time.
165
iCOM Controls Training and Service Manual
Switches perform the same mechanical function, but they also include software
inside that allows communication to operate at faster speeds and allow for multiple
unit communication. Switches are the latest technology, but you are safe to use
either device.
d ig i t al
Hubs are available in different
configuration, with 4, 8, 12, 15 or 24 RJ45 connections. You can plug in the
RJ45-connector into a hub while the
network is running on the other connected
192.168.168.1
systems, allowing you to move / add
systems without having to shutdown the network.
As network grow, you may need a second hub:
Twisted pair - 10baseT - UTP Cable
192.168.168.3
192.168.168.2
UNIT IDENTIFICATION OR ADDRESSING
The units are separated and identified through their TCP/IP address. TCP/IP
refers to the protocol or language being used to communicate between the
Environmental Units. The addresses are arranged in 32-bit numbers. To make it
easier to memorize such IP-addresses, they are usually expressed as 4 8-bit
numbers (example: 192.168.10.1), where each of the 4 numbers is within the
range of '0' to '255' (there are restriction on using '0' and '255', avoid using them.)
When setting up a small private network, you are free to use ANY IPaddress, however, when you are connected to a company network, you need
to ask the Network-administrator to assign you an IP-address. And if you are
connected to the Internet, your ISP (Internet Service Provider) will assign an
IP-address to you.
Even if a network is NOT connected to the Internet, it has become custom to use
on private networks a range of IP-addresses, which are reserved for private
networks (that makes it later possible to connect your private network to the
Internet without having to re-configure everything). The reserved IP-address is:
192.168.x.y, where x=same number on all systems and y=different/unique number
on all systems.
See the example above under HUBS AND SWITCHES for an example of this
configuration.

How To Use The Schematics
As you look at the outside edge of the electrical schematic (drawing), you will see
the numbers 8 through 1 (reading left to right) across the top and bottom and the
letters D through A (reading from top to bottom) along both the left and right edges
of the schematic. These numbers and letters are called locators, just like on a
map. By intersecting the number and letter into the drawing, you can locate the
section of the schematic you need to reference.
The next area of interest is the line numbers along both sides of the schematic.
By using these line numbers and a straight edge, you can pinpoint a particular
item in the located section. Also, useful is the Nomenclature section along the
right side of the schematic. The nomenclature sections refers identifies the device
by abbreviation and name and indicates on which line the device is found.
If you look deep into the schematic, you can see that the transformer section is
laid out in a ladder progression making it easy to follow-out each circuit. You may
wish to highlight each circuit with a marker making it easy to follow.
The number indicators in the area to the right of the ladder circuit section are also
important. These are the contact locators for each relay or contactor shown on the
drawing. The number represents the line location of the contact(s) for the adjacent
shown relay or contactor. There are two types of line number indicators. One is
highlighted with a bar across the top of the number, this indicates a normally
closed contact. The other number shown without the bar indicates a normally
open contact. Remember that the drawing is shown in the non-powered (deenergized) state.
These drawings are the latest revisions at publication of this manual and are what
Liebert calls Universal drawings. Liebert has included numerous options on each
one of these drawing to help in troubleshooting the system. These drawings may
or may not be on your particular unit.
It is important to become familiar with legend, nomenclature and notes on each
drawing.
