ML Switch
From Resource Data Management
Description
The ML Switch (PR0109) is a device that allows up to 10 RDM ML controllers to be connected to an IP network, without the need for
individual IP ML modules. There are 10 RS232 connections for linking to 10 ML controllers. There are 3 standard Ethernet Switch
(10/100baseT) connections for other network devices. The Ethernet ports are self configuring for uplinks and standard 10/100 Base T
device connections.
As well as the Switch function there is a 4-20mA input for additional applications such as Island EEV control. Island trim heater control
can be achieved through the display port using a humidity temperature display (PR0445). To utilise either of these features then the
PR0109-PHI option would be required.

RS232 Lead Lengths
RS232 patch lead maximum length must not exceed 15 metres. (Ports 1 - 10)
The 3-character address that will be seen on the system front end is determined by the position of the two Network ID rotary switches
and the port the controller has been connected to, unless the connected controller has its own network ID rotary switches, in which case
the controller ID will override the switch settings.
Connection to other IP equipment
Use a standard CAT5 patch lead to connect other IP equipment to the ML Switch (such as a Futura IP module) into the 10/100 Base T
ports 1, 2 or 3.
Connection to another ML Hub/Switch or Other Ethernet Hub/switch
Use a standard CAT5 patch lead from any of the three 10/100 Base T ports into any of the three 10/100 Base T ports on the upstream
ML Switch. The three 10/100 Base T ports are all self configuring.
Connection to a Data Manager/Director
Use a standard CAT5 patch lead and connect the Data Manager or Data Director to one of the three 10 Base T ports.
10/100 Base T connectors
The three 10/100 Base T connectors have 2 LED’s adjacent to them: The green LED; when static, indicates that the connection to the
device is good, the green LED then flickers when data is being transmitted.
When the amber LED is permanently on it indicates that the connection is full duplex and if there is an error or fault on that channel the
LED flickers.
Network ID
The 3-character network ID is made up from the positions of the 2 rotary switches and the RS232 connector number. We recommend
that the 2 rotary switches are set to the Bay number and that the case sections are plugged into their corresponding RS232 port
numbers.
E.g. Bay 10 case 2:
NETWORK ID
1 Vdc
2
3
90 1
90 1
The 2 rotary switches set to "1" and "0", controller plugged into port 2. The ID then is seen as "102" at the system front end.

PR0109-PHI user guide
The PR0109-PHI hardware version of the ML Switch allows for EEV control on an island by island basis. It also allows for the use of the
energy feature trim control which pulses the trim relay of a ML case controller based on the actual shop floor humidity therefore
minimising energy usage.
Island EEV Control Application
Product PR0109-PHI is intended for EEV control on an Island by island basis. A suction pressure transducer is connected to the 4-20mA
input and the pressure read from this transducer is converted to a temperature based on the gas type being used by the system. This
temperature is transmitted to each controller connected to the ML Switch and along with the suction temperature probe local to the
controller the superheat is calculated.
Unlike the PR0109 (Standard ML Switch version) when this product is used with a Data Manager it is registered on the system as a
device. Once the ML Switch is on-line, the Switch type and parameters can be set up.
The switch comes online with the ID of the 2 rotary switch settings followed by the letter a. For example with the first rotary switch set to 4
and the second switch set to 8 then the switch would appear as device “48a”.

If the pressure exceeds this value then a High Pressure alarm is generated once the alarm
delay expires.
If the pressure exceeds this value the valves on controllers connected to the ML Switch will
closed or be reduced to a predetermined percentage. A MOP alarm is also created. (See MOP)
When the pressure reduces below this value valves on controllers connected to the Switch will
recover to their normal operational
When the Switch comes out of MOP, the valves will come on at 1 minute intervals and turn
“this” number of valves on per minute.
Delay after the MOP value has been exceeded before the MOP actions and alarm occurs.

EEV Control Operation
Ensure the transducer is correctly connected and the jumper is in the Pressure position.
Once the Switch has been correctly setup, it will pass values to each of the controllers connected to ports 1 through 10. In an EEV
application the evaporator in temperature probe reading for a case controller can be obtained from the ML Switch on which the controller
is connected. A suction pressure transducer is connected from the case Island to the 4-20mA input of the ML Switch and the pressure
read from this transducer is converted to a temperature based on the gas type being used by the system. This temperature is transmitted
to each controller connected to the switch and along with the suction temperature probe local to the controller the superheat is calculated.
Please see the ML Case controller user document from the RDM website for further details. (P-15 Minimum valve opening) We
recommend that this parameter be set to 0% when using ML Pressure Hub to calculate Superheat. Please note that RDM recommended
that the evaporator in temperature probe is fitted as the controller will use this to calculate the superheat in the event of a communication
loss with the ML Switch. The ML Case controllers require to have P14 (Evaporator control) set to 1 (Remote) for this feature to function
correctly.

MOP - Maximum Operating Pressure
When the MOP alarm is created a valve off command is sent to the ML controllers connected to the ML Switch. The percentage that the
valve shuts down to is dependent on the “Div Value” parameter in the ML case controller. When the ML Switch generates the MOP alarm
the controller reduces the maximum valve opening to this percentage. For example if the Div Value” parameter is set to 50% and the
MOP alarm is generated then the maximum valve opening will be limited to 50%. Therefore as the controller pulses the valve the
maximum the valve will open to is 50%.
If ML controllers are connected to the Switch then the LLV will be closed when the MOP alarm is created and return to normal operation
when the alarm clears. When the pressure reduces below the MOP diff the valves will revert to normal operation at 1 minute intervals.
The number of controller coming back to normal operation per minute depends on the “recovery count” value.

ML Switch User Guide
Humidity Control Operation
To utilise this feature a Humidity/Temperature Display is required (PR0445). Connect the Humidity/temperature display to the display port
on the ML Switch. The control algorithm will use the humidity reading from the display in calculating the percentage at which the trim
relays are to be pulsed.
When the measured rH is below the “Humidity Low” parameter the ML Switch will pulse the ML case controller trim relays to the duration
set by the “Trim Low” parameter. When the measured rH is above the “Humidity Low” parameter but below the “Humidity High”
parameter the ML Switch will pulse the ML case controller trim relays in proportion to the line drawn between the low and high levels.
When rH goes above the “Humidity High” level the ML Switch will pulse the ML case controller trim relays at the “Trim High” setting.
Setting the trim high parameter to 70% will result in 30 % energy savings as the controller trim relays will never pulse on for more than
70%. The trims are pulsed over a 5 minute period. Therefore if the ML Switch calculates the trim percentage as 50% then the trim relay
will be on for 2 and a half minutes and then off for 2 and a half minutes.

GP Timer Set-up
It is possible to set the ML Switch humidity control to operate at specific times. For this operation to occur set the parameter “Trim Mode”
to “Remote”. A GP Timer channel must be set up to control the timer on/off periods of the ML Switch. For GP Timer set up please refer to
the Data Manager user guide found on the RDM website. The following settings should be followed in the GP setup.
Output Type
Output Mask
Output Channel
–

–
This should be set to “General”.
This should match the “Controller Name” e.g. “45a”
Set to “13”. This will allow the GP Timer to control the state of the timer.
When the parameter “Trim Mode” is set to “Remote” and the Data Manager GP timer channel directed to the ML Switch is in the on
period the humidity control will operate as described above. During the Data Manager GP timer channel off period the relay will pulse to
the preset “Trim Off Level ” parameter. For example if the trim off level is zero then the trims will be completely off. Thus allowing the user
to save energy when the store isn’t trading and the trims are not required.
Note if you wish the ML controller trim relay to follow the Data Manager Trim Control feature and not the ML Switch settings then please
see the ML Controller user document.( Dependant on configuration
parameter P-06 , P-07 and P-08 set to trims).
Trim Heater Control via ML Case Controller Range
Energy savings via the ML controller range can be achieved in a number of ways. One of which is pulsing the trim heater relay off for a
given period of time. One way to pulse the trim heater relay in the ML case controller range is by setting the parameter “Trim Level”. This
sets a percentage level, of a 5-minute period, to pulse the trim heater relay off/on. Using this parameter pulses the trim relay irrespective
of the actual shop floor humidity. For greater energy savings the Data Manager energy feature trim control or the ML Switch trim control
feature can be used. These two options pulse the trim relay dependant on the actual shop floor humidity levels. Thus if the shop floor
humidity is relatively low the trim heaters can be pulsed off for longer durations. Please see the relevant user guides for further details.
RDM recommend that the trim heater pulse module is used in all instances (PR0723). This module is fitted in between the trim heater of
the case and the relay output of the ML Controller which is pulsing the heater. The trim heater module output provides a smoother power
distribution, compared to using the relay output direct, as it switches at the zero voltage crossover point. Switching the trim heater on and
off via a normal relay, without using the RDM trim heater pulse module, may damage the trim heater and reduce the operational life of
the heater. Therefore RDM recommend the use of this module in every trim heater control application.
