Introduction
The Tracker Version 12 building
automation system (BAS) is a heating,
ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC)
energy management system for smallto medium-size buildings. It provides
reliable, centralized control for HVAC
equipment, managing it for optimal
comfort and efficiency.
The Tracker Version 12 BAS includes a
controller (Figure 1) with a liquid crystal
display (LCD) touch screen. The Tracker
BAS also includes optional Windowsbased software that can be installed on
a PC workstation.
The Tracker Version 12 BAS is LonMark®
compliant. It communicates with
supported devices over a Trane Comm5
link. The Comm5 link is a
communication link that implements
LonTalk, an open, industry-standard
protocol.
The modem enables off-site
connections over standard phone lines.
It enables remote operation of the
Tracker BAS and provides the means to
deliver alarms and messages to pagers.
The Ethernet card enables the Tracker
controller to reside on an Ethernet/IP
network. A Tracker PC Workstation on
the network has access to all Tracker
controllers on the network. If multiple
Tracker workstations and controllers
reside on the network, you have the
capability to selectively route alarms and
diagnostic messages to specified
Tracker PC Workstations.
Both the touch screen and the PC
provide an easy-to-use visual interface.
The interfaces enable an operator to set
up and change HVAC operating
parameters and collect and display
building information.
Both the controller and the Tracker PC
Workstation (in its recommended
hardware configuration) provide
modems or optional Ethernet cards for
remote access.

System description
The Tracker Version 12 BAS is reliable
and can be easily installed, operated,
and serviced. It simplifies the work of
the building operator and the installing
contractor.
Tracker system devices
In addition to the Tracker controller and
the optional Tracker PC Workstation, a
Tracker system consists of the
interconnected devices on the Comm5
link.
Currently, all equipment that makes up a
comprehensive Tracker system is
available from Trane. In addition to a
Tracker BAS, a Tracker system can
include the following Trane HVAC
components:
Tracker applications
The Tracker system goes well beyond
accurate temperature control. It provides
centralized scheduling and control for
multiple RTUs and split systems. It
provides multiple-zone control when
paired with a VariTrac system. And it
provides control for multiple VariTrac
systems.
The Tracker BAS is packaged and
delivered for use in four major
applications:
• Multiple constant-volume rooftop and
split single-zone system
• Changeover bypass system
• Variable air volume system
• Water-source heat pump system
• Voyager constant-volume rooftop
units (RTUs)
• Precedent constant-volume RTUs
with ReliaTel controls
• VariTrac central control panels (CCPs)
• Voyager III variable air volume (VAV)
RTU (with CCP)
• Tracer loop controller (TLC)
• Tracer ZN510 and ZN511 zone
controllers, ZN517 unitary controller,
and ZN524 water-source heat pump
(WSHP) controllers
• Tracer MP503 I/O modules
The Tracer I/O modules in a Tracker
system are used to monitor and control
building equipment such as lights,
exhaust fans, ventilation fans, and
humidity control equipment.
The components of the Tracker network
are connected in a daisy chain (Figure 2
on page 4) configuration.
Communication wire is twisted
(shielded) pair wire.

Multiple constant-volume
Trane rooftop and split
single-zone system
The Tracker BAS is capable of controlling
multiple constant-volume Trane rooftop
and split single-zone systems (Figure 2
on page 7). The Trane unitary controller
enables non-Trane HVAC systems to be
easily integrated into the Tracker
system.
The Tracker BAS communicates with the
unit controllers on the Comm5 network
and controls them to temperature
setpoints and operating parameters
determined by the operator. With
established communications, the
Tracker BAS receives alarms
automatically.
6
Connecting multiple unit controllers to
the Tracker BAS enables the installer and
operator to:
• Save installation time and materials
costs by reducing the amount of wire
used and by requiring only a
thermistor in each area rather than a
programmable zone sensor
• Schedule all devices from one
location, rather than requiring that
each device be scheduled
independently
• Monitor alarms from one location

Changeover bypass system
The Tracker BAS is capable of
supervising and scheduling a VariTrac
VAV system. To do this, Trane VariTrac
changeover bypass zoning systems are
introduced into the Tracker system.
A Tracker controller is connected to one
or more VariTrac CCPs (Figure 3 on
page 9). Each CCP is connected to one
RTU, bypass dampers, and up to 24
zone dampers.
8
The Tracker controller provides
centralized scheduling and access to
CCP alarms. Each CCP monitors its zone
sensors and allows each zone to “vote”
its needs, which are determined by the
schedule and its setpoints. Based on
that data, the CCP sets the operating
mode (heat or cool) of the HVAC
equipment.
In addition, the CCP also maintains a
operator-defined static pressure in the
ductwork by controlling a bypass
damper.

Variable air volume system
The Tracker BAS is capable of
supervising and scheduling a system
comprised of a VariTrac CCP and a
Voyager III VAV RTU. In this application,
the Tracker controller uses the CCP to
coordinate the RTU and its VAV boxes
(Figure 4 on page 11). A Tracker
controller can be connected to one or
more CCPs. Each CCP is connected to
one Trane Voyager III variable air volume
RTU. The Tracker controller provides
centralized scheduling and access to
CCP alarms. This configuration can
include the following Trane equipment:
•
•
•
•
•
When power is applied, the VariTrac CCP,
like the Tracker BAS, auto-configures all
devices and equipment to factory
default operating conditions and
activates the equipment. The VariTrac
CCP automatically determines if the
connected system is a changeover
bypass or VAV system and controls it
appropriately without operator or
installer programming. When the CCP is
connected to the Tracker BAS, the CCP
and Tracker controllers begin to share
information.

Since these components are designed
to work together, they offer the
advantage of “plug and play” ease of
installation. The VAV configuration offers
these additional advantages:
• Central location of major equipment
and controls
• Inexpensive temperature control for a
large number of zones
• Simultaneous accommodation of
heating and cooling, eliminating the
heat/cool contention of the
changeover bypass system
• Energy savings through the use of
modulating fans and the isolation of
unoccupied areas
• Flexibility that enables easy, low cost
zoning changes

Water-source heat pump
system
The Tracker BAS is capable of
coordinating the operation of
components of a water-source heat
pump (WSHP) system (Figure 5 on
page 13). When a Tracker BAS is
integrated into a WSHP system, it
provides centralized scheduling and
control. Also, it can perform tasks such
as logging alarms, collecting trend data,
and generating reports.
The Tracker BAS communicates directly
to a Tracer loop controller (TLC). The TLC
manages and optimizes the operation of
pumps, valves, boilers, and cooling
towers for the WSHP system. The
Tracker BAS communicates with up to
100 daisy-chained WSHP controllers.
12
In addition, the Tracker BAS provides
tested and proven optimization routines
that can be enabled. The routines
provide loop optimization, pre-cooling,
and pre-heating. For efficiency, the
routines take advantage of low outside
air temperatures.
The following components must be
present for the integrated WSHP
system to operate:
• Tracker model WSHP
• Tracer loop controller (compressors on
the individual heat pumps will not
operate unless a TLC is on the
communication link reporting water
flow and water temperature)
• Up to 100 Tracer ZN510, ZN511,
ZN524, or ZN517 controllers, or
LonTalk communication interface for
Voyager (LCI-V), or LonTalk
communication interface for ReliaTel
(LCI-R)

Note 1: The RTUs communicating with a Tracker Version 10 or greater controller directly must be constant volume only. To interface a Tracker
controller with a Voyager III variable air volume (VAV) RTU having a variable frequency drive or inlet guide vanes you must use a CCP to coordinate
the Voyager and the VAV boxes. The Tracker controller can then interface with up to five (model 12) or 10 (model 24) CCPs controlling one Voyager III
each.
Note 2: The Tracker water-source heat pump (WSHP) models must detect and coordinate with a TLC to insure water flow before individual watersource heat pump compressors are allowed on.
Note 3: The Tracker model 12 can communicate with a maximum of 21 devices: any combination of up to 12 SCCs, five CCPs, and four I/O
controllers. Each Voyager and Precedent RTU must have a Trane unit controller with a Comm5 interface card. The Precedent RTU must be equipped
with a ReliaTel unit controller. Each CCP provides control of one RTU and up to 24 VariTrac zones or 32 delivered VAV zones.
Note 4: The Tracker model 24 can communicate with a maximum of 38 devices each: any combination of up to 24 SCCs, 10 CCPs, and four I/O
controllers. Each Voyager and Precedent RTU must have a Trane unit controller with a Comm5 interface card. The Precedent RTU must be equipped

Tracer loop controller and
water-source heat pump
system
Using the TLC with the Tracker model
WSHP provides time-saving advantages,
equipment-saving alarms, and easy-touse standard applications.
The Tracker model WSHP requires a
Tracer loop controller (TLC) to enable
SCC compressor operation. It also
requires water-source heat pumps
(WSHPs).
Note: See TLC documentation for input
and output descriptions.
The TLC is a configurable direct digital
controller that monitors and controls
WSHP systems. It controls and
optimizes the boiler, cooling tower,
valves, pumps, and individual WSHPs
(Figure 8).
Figure 8: Water-source heat pumps
(horizontal and vertical)
BAS-PRC010-EN
Trane WSHPs are available in several
sizes and can be purchased with factoryinstalled, Tracer ZN controls. The WSHP
communication link is daisy-chained to
the Tracker model WSHP.
The Tracker model WSHP with its TLC
can coordinate up to 100 Trane WSHPs.
It is designed for easy field installation
and commissioning. The system has
centralized diagnostic capabilities,
proven loop optimization and control,
automatic system configuration, cooling
tower control, and automatic recovery
routines that prevent nuisance alarm
calls.

Tracer MP503 I/O module
The Tracer MP503 input/output module
(Figure 12) accepts electrical signals
from a variety of sensors. Also, it
controls the state of binary outputs by
energizing and de-energizing relays.
Changing the state of a relay enables
the I/O module to turn a device on or off.
Figure 12: Tracer MP503
The Tracer MP503 provides four
universal inputs and four binary outputs.
The universal inputs can receive and
interpret binary (on/off), and analog
(range) values. Connecting to the
module enables the Tracker controller to
monitor Trane temperature, relative
humidity (RH), and CO2 sensors.
Using the Tracker PC software, the
binary outputs can be programmed to
energize and de-energize the relays in
response to system conditions and
schedules.

Comm5 communication
The Tracker Version 12 BAS controller is
a Comm5 device. Comm5 is the fifth
generation Trane communication
architecture. It implements LonTalk, an
open, industry-standard protocol.
The RTUs, CCPs, unitary controllers, and
I/O controllers that the Tracker controller
communicates with reside on a LonTalk
FTT-10A network. They provide data
using LonMark® standard network
variable types (SNVTs, pronounced snivits) and configuration properties.
The HVAC equipment controllers employ
SCC profiles, as defined by LonMark®
Interoperability Association. Table 7
shows the devices with which the
Tracker controller can communicate and
the LonMark® profiles that the devices
use.
Note: Ancillary sensors (such as
temperature and humidity sensors) that
are hard-wired to the terminals on the
Tracker, CCP, and I/O module are
standard resistive-type sensors and do
not communicate using LonTalk. They
only provide analog or binary inputs and
outputs.
LonTalk devices from other
manufacturers will be tested for
compatibility with the Tracker BAS.
Devices that are compatible will be
approved for inclusion in the Tracker
system. Necessary support
documentation for approved devices will
be released, when completed.

Installation
The Tracker Version 12 BAS controller is
designed for easy installation. Its threemodule configuration (Figure 13)
enables the termination module to be
mounted on a wall, and the main module
and display module to be stored for their
protection until the site is ready for the
controller to be fully assembled.
Figure 13: Three modules
Termination module
Main module
Display module
The termination module contains the
termination board, which accepts all
electrical connections for the controller.
The main module contains the main
logic board. The display module contains
the touch screen, which enables the
operator to interact with the controller.
It can be mounted directly to the wall or
it can be mounted on a conduit box.
Since the Tracker controller is distributed
in an international market, the
termination module is designed to fit on
all standard conduit boxes.
Wire the termination board
Once the termination module is
mounted on the wall, the installer can
make all electrical input and output
connections, UCM connections, and 24
Vac power connections to the
termination board (Figure 15 on
page 24). The termination board inputs
and outputs connect devices such as an
alarm relay, a priority shutdown input, a
pulse meter, and an outside air
temperature sensor. The 24 Vac power
must come from a dedicated
transformer.
The module is designed to provide
ample room to insert wire into the
terminals. The termination screws are
fully exposed and are more than 2 in. (5
cm) from the sides of the module.
When wiring is complete, the shipping
container can be slipped back over the
module to protect it from construction
debris until the installer is ready to
complete the installation.
Install the termination
module
The first step in the Tracker installation
procedure is to select a location and
mount the termination module on a wall
(Figure 14).

Install the main and display
modules
The main module and display module
can be installed with power applied to
the termination module. The main
module snaps onto the termination
module (Figure 16) and the display
module snaps onto the main module
(Figure 17).
Figure 16: Main module installation
Connect the PC workstation
If the site requires the optional PC
software, the installer connects the RJ11 (modem connection) or RJ-12 (direct
connection) cable to the appropriate
connector on the underside of the
controller.
Install the optional PC
software
To install the optional PC software, the
installer inserts the Tracker CD into the
PC CD-ROM drive and follows the selfprompting installation wizard.
Auto configuration
When Trane Comm5 devices are used
as a system and power is applied to the
controller, the Tracker BAS automatically
configures itself. It is no longer
necessary to program the building
management system. During auto
configuration, the controller:
Figure 17: Display module
installation
• Discovers all devices on the
communication link
• Loads all devices into a non-erasable
memory database
• Turns to On or Occupied all
discovered HVAC equipment except
the binary output relays of the Tracer
MP503 I/O module, which remain deenergized (Off)
After auto configuration, the building is
under the control of the Tracker
controller and its factory defaults. At this
point, the controller can run the building
with no further involvement of
personnel.
During auto configuration, the Tracker
controller assigned a default name to
each detected device. You can choose,
now or later, to replace the default
device names with descriptive names.
You can also change the building heating
and cooling schedule.

Operation
An operator can set up and change
HVAC operating parameters and collect
and display building information at either
the Tracker controller or the PC
workstation. Each location provides
access to an easy-to-use user interface.
Tracker controller operation
The LCD touch screen, combined with
an intuitive menu-driven user interface,
provides access to the Tracker system
from the controller.
Using the controller user interface
The user interface Home screen
(Figure 18) is the entry point to the
Tracker system. The screen displays five
function buttons: View, Alarm, Schedule,
After Hours, and Advanced.
Pressing a function button opens the
function. Once open, buttons on the
user interface screens enable the
operator to navigate to specific data
display and data entry screens.
For example, to view status, the
operator presses the View function
button. On the Building Information
screen that displays (Figure 19) is a
button for each building area or piece of
equipment in the building. Each button
shows current status (such as,
temperature, status of an analog input,
or state of a binary output).
Figure 18: Controller Home screen
Figure 19: Building Information screen
26
BAS-PRC010-EN
®
Subsequent selections enable the
operator to navigate to screens that
provide additional detail. For example,
the operator has only to press the
appropriate area or equipment button at
the Building Information screen and a
screen with more detail displays. From
the Building Information screen, the
operator can navigate to any status in
one to three steps.
Controller operator support
Beyond its ease of use, the user
interface provides additional operator
support:
• It informs the operator of changes that
are about to be made and asks for
confirmation before making those
changes.
• Its alarm buttons, when pressed, can
display instructions and notes on how
to best handle the problem.
• Its service and alarm messages help
to protect HVAC equipment. They
enable the operator to ward off future
problems and correct current
problems, so tenant comfort can be
maintained.
A printed user guide containing all the
procedures that can be performed with
the user interface is provided with the
Tracker controller. There is also an
electronic copy of the user guide on the
Tracker PC software CD.
BAS-PRC010-EN
PC software operation
A personal computer running Tracker PC
software provides local (direct
connection) or remote (dial-in or LAN)
access to the Tracker controller.
The PC operator can access all functions
that the controller operator can access.
In addition, the PC operator has access
to functions that are not available to the
controller operator: Binary Output
Programming, Custom Alarming, and
Print.
Using the PC user interface
The user interface Home screen
(Figure 20), which displays in the
workspace area, is the entry point to the
Tracker system from the PC software.
A tree displays to the left of the
workspace area. The tree shows all
devices in the Comm5 network.
PC operator support
Beyond its ease of use, the PC software
user interface provides operator support
that is similar to that of the controller. In
addition:
• It provides online help, which contains
all the procedures that can be
performed with the user interface.
• It provides printer support, which
enables the operator to print operating
procedures.
The Tracker PC software CD case
contains printed installation instructions
for the PC software. It also contains
instructions on how to access the online
help. The Tracker CD contains an
electronic copy of all printed user
documentation.
Clicking a function button or menu item
opens the function. Once inside,
buttons, lists, and tabs enable the
operator to navigate to specific data
display screens and data entry screens.
For example, to view the status of an
RTU, the operator clicks the device on
the tree. The selected device then
displays in the workspace area
(Figure 21).
Tabs at the top of the workspace area
enable the operator to easily access and
view the parameter settings and current
status of the selected device.

Scheduling
Running a building as efficiently as
possible means using the HVAC system
only when needed. Most often, the
need is based on the occupancy of the
building, or better yet, the occupancy of
specific areas of the building.
The Tracker BAS simplifies scheduling. It
is no longer necessary to create a
separate occupancy schedule for each
HVAC device. The operator can create a
schedule and attach several devices
(members) to it. From 1 to 10 schedules
may be created. Grouping devices in a
schedule means that changes to the
building schedule are no longer a timeconsuming, labor-intensive effort.
Figure 22 shows a scheduling screen
from the controller user interface.
Figure 23 shows a scheduling screen
from the PC software user interface.
Building occupants can easily override
unoccupied areas to provide comfort for
predetermined lengths of time by
pressing the On button on the zone
sensor or by using the Tracker controller
or PC user interface.
In addition, the Tracker BAS can be set
up to override a schedule based on the
input of occupancy sensors. The heating
and cooling setpoints for the area are
automatically adjusted to standby
settings when the area is not occupied
and to occupied settings when people
are detected.
