-

, and Common.

 Pin 1 → COM → Common (isolated from host controller)

 Pin 2 → Tx/Rc + → EIA485 Transmit/Receive Positive

 Pin 3 → Tx/Rc - → EIA485 Transmit/Receive Negative

An RJ45 connector links the BACnet Communication Module to the BACnet IP or BACnet Ethernet network. The LEDs for this connector function as follows:

 Green – This LED flashes to indicate Ethernet activity

.

If configured for

MS/TP, this LED does not flash green, even if it is connected to an active

Ethernet port.

 Yellow –This LED indicates the port speed. The communication module always operates in full-duplex mode. If the output is Off, the speed is 10 mbps. If the output is On, the speed is 100 mbps.

16-Pin Header

The 16-pin header connects the Chiller I/O Backplane to the BACnet communication module through the bottom of the communication module. The pins are on located on the back side of the of the communication module.

J8 Jumper

The BACnet Communication Module has a built-in terminating resistor labeled “J8” on the circuit board. The communication module ships with the jumper installed, providing 120 Ohms of end-ofline resistance to the network. Typically, a network is terminated at each end of each segment.

However, it is the responsibility of the system installer/integrator to recommend whether or not to terminate a device within the network. If the device does not require terminating resistance, or if an external terminating resistor is used, the jumper on J8 should be removed. See Figure 2 for location.

Integration

Introduction

Once the BACnet Communication Module has been properly installed on the unit controller, it is then possible to integrate the unit controller into a building automation system (BAS) via the BACnet network. The addressing and configuration process is described separately for each protocol

(BACnet MS/TP, BACnet IP, and BACnet Ethernet) in the following sections.

The BACnet Communication Module can be configured using the Magnitude chiller unit controller

Operator Interface Touch Screen (OITS) display. The unit is ready to operate after you have configured the parameter values of the unit controller for your particular network. Refer to the

Magnitude Chiller Operation and Maintenance Manual (OM 1034) for default values and unit controller OITS operating instructions. Refer to McQuay Protocol Document ED 15117 for descriptions of all the available BACnet parameters.

Figures 3 and 4 show the chiller unit controller OITS display screens with the corresponding network parameters available for configuration. These two screens (titled BAS1 and BAS2) are accessed by pressing the BAS button at the top of the column on the right-hand side of the main unit controller

OITS display.

Note:

Refer to the Magnitude Chiller Operation and Maintenance Manual (OM 1034) for details regarding accessing and using the unit controller OITS display.

BACnet MS/TP Addressing

The BACnet MS/TP Media Access Control (MAC) address is a one-octet address that must be set during the BACnet Communication Module configuration. The MAC address must be unique to the

MS/TP network and have a valid range of 0-127.

Additionally, there are certain parameters that must be set properly to verify communication between

Magnitude Chiller Unit Controller and the MS/TP network. Table 3 provides details about these addressing parameters. See your system integrator for additional information regarding proper

BACnet MS/TP addressing.

Time-To-Live value. If the BBMD address is changed, the update is automatically applied to the BACnet

Communication Module as soon as the change is received.

If the new value is 0, the existing signup is no longer refreshed and will be allowed to expire. In other words, when a BBMD IP address is defined here, a Register-

Foreign-Device message is sent to register the chiller unit controller’s IP address with the BBMD. This message is continuously sent out before the Foreign Device Time expires. If the new value is non-zero, a Register-Foreign-

Device message is sent to the BBMD address that has been defined by this parameter. Changing the BBMD address may affect the operation of other BACnet devices on the network if they are dependent on objects within the device.

0/ If the Foreign Device Time-To-Live (FDTTL) is changed, the update is automatically applied to the BACnet

Communication Module as soon as the change is received.

If the new value is different from the existing value, a

Register-Foreign-Device message is sent to the BBMD address. A minimum TTL of 15 seconds is enforced to avoid excessive network traffic.

Changing the device object name may affect the operation of other BACnet devices on the network that have previously discovered the device. The BACnet Communication Module takes up to 60 seconds before this change is recognized. A power cycle is not needed.

Note:

If unit controller application software requires uploading in the field, the network configuration parameters revert to their default values. Please contact the McQuay Chiller

Technical Response Center at 1-877-349-7782 for assistance with upgrading unit controller application software.

Service Information

Troubleshooting

General

If you can control the unit from the chiller unit controller OITS display, but you are not able to communicate with unit via the BACnet network/BAS workstation, follows these steps:

 Check the network wiring

 Verify BAS Network Protocol is set correctly using the chiller unit controller OITS display.

 Check the network parameters and verify that they are correct and that there are no duplicate devices on the network.

 Verify that the serial cable is connected from the CPU to the chiller I/O backplane board at J16

(ribbon cable) is connected.

 Reduce (isolate) the network to one single unit controller. Once this small network is working properly, continue to add more devices to the network.

BACnet IP

If Protocol Type is set to BACnet IP, use the standard TCP/IP suite of protocols to check your connectivity with other devices. Using the PC’s Windows Command Prompt, type “ping <IP address of the BACnet Communications Module>.” If you get a response from that IP address, you are connected to the BACnet Communication Module. If you do not get a response, verify the BACnet

Communication Module and the PC network settings.

BACnet MS/TP

BACnet MS/TP-specific communication errors could result from one or more of the following conditions below. Follow these steps:

 Verify that there are no duplicate MAC Addresses and/or Device-IDs on the network.

 Check that no more than two network bias resistors are installed.

 Confirm that all terminations exist and/or remove any invalid terminations, particularily in the middle of the bus.

 Verify that polarity is correct (a single node can disrupt the MS/TP network.)

 Check that there are no more than 32 devices installed in a single segment (using standard transceivers.)

 Verify correct topology (e.g. a star topology rather than a straight bus topology) may impact physical medium (Layer 1).

 You should carefully follow the EIA-485 specifications (see www.ashrae.org

).

If the BACnet Communication Module still does not respond, contact the McQuay Controls

Customer Support Group at 866-4MCQUAY (866-462-7829).
