Installation Planning
1 Installation Planning
The WaveStar® BCMS Hub provides a consolidated power monitoring station for viewing the status of numerous
devices, such as branch circuit panel boards or Bus System End Feeds and Tap-Off Boxes that use PDI’s Branch
Circuit Monitoring System (BCMS). Monitoring data is displayed on a 10.4-in color touchscreen. Monitoring data
can also be displayed remotely on web pages using a TCP/IP link.
Each BCMS Hub has a single downstream Modbus RTU link to its monitored devices with up to (32) connections
or drops and up to (246) total Modbus addresses. The maximum configuration varies depending on the type of
equipment being monitored. See section 1.6 Electrical Loads and Modbus Addresses for examples.
A BCMS Dual Hub doubles the monitoring capacity within the same size enclosure using a second Monitor.
1.1 BCMS Hub and BCMS Dual Hub
A BCMS Hub enclosure can house a single BCMS Hub or a BCMS Dual Hub. The BCMS Dual Hub has two (2)
BCMS Hub systems, which operate independently except for sharing the same power supply.
BCMS Hub and BCMS
Dual Hub have the same
enclosure size (24" x 24"
x 5").
Each display is a
10.4" diagonal color
touchscreen.
Figure 1 WaveStar BCMS Hub and BCMS Dual Hub
1.2 Communications
The BCMS Hub has a single downstream link to monitored BCMS devices that uses Modbus RTU at 9600 bps.
The BCMS Hub can have one (1) or two (2) upstream links to a Building Management System (BMS) or Data
Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) system:

(1) Modbus RTU link at 19,200 or 9600 bps

(1) TCP/IP using Ethernet cable, providing
o
Web server connection for remotely viewing BCMS Hub web pages, and/or
o
Modbus TCIP/IP connection to BMS or DCIM system
7
WaveStar BCMS Hub
The Modbus RTU and the TCP/IP links can be used simultaneously. A BMS system can use Modbus RTU to the
BCMS Hub and a DCIM system can use TCP/IP while web pages are simultaneously displayed over the TCP/IP
link.
Distances restrictions:

For Modbus RTU, cable lengths should be ≤ 2000 ft.

For upstream Ethernet links, apply standard Ethernet length restrictions for the cable used (Cat5, Cat5e,
etc.)
The BCMS Dual Hub has (2) separate BCMS Hub systems in the same enclosure, each with its own Monitor.
Each system has exactly the same capacity, options, and restrictions as a single BCMS Hub.

1.3 Supported Devices
The BCMS Hub collects monitoring data from BCMS devices. Technically a BCMS device is a BCMS points list
(or Modbus register map), representing a physical component, such as a panelboard. A single BCMS PCB can
have multiple points lists and appear as multiple devices. For example, a BCMS PCB for panelboards typically
has two (2) points lists, one for each panelboard it supports.
The following equipment and BCMS devices can be monitored by a BCMS Hub, if BCMS is installed with the
monitored equipment:

RPPs and JCOMMs, monitoring panelboards and their input feeds with any of these points lists:
8
Installation Planning


BCMS Normal, the default points list for North American panelboards

BCMS KWH, a points list providing branch circuit power usage information for standard North
American panelboards

BCMS IEC, the points list providing power information from IEC panel boards
Busway Products (PowerWave Bus Systems™, PowerWave 2™ Bus Systems, and PowerWave
Silver™ Bus Systems):

End Feeds using the PM Input Board points list

Tap-Off Boxes, using the iBus points list
1.4 Excluded Devices
The BCMS Hub does not support data collection and display from the following devices:




WaveStar® Power Distribution Units (PDUs) (PowerPak, PowerHub, or PowerHub 2 PDUs)
BCMS using the Enhanced Subfeeds points list (large PDU feeds)
WaveStar® Static Transfer Switch
Non-PDI equipment, except for panelboards monitored through a JCOMM
1.5 Monitors
WaveStar® Color Monitors and WaveStar® Monitors (monochrome) can be included in the downstream device
chain from the BCMS Hub. However, the PowerWave Bus Systems™ 7-inch Local Display, which is also used
with PowerWave 2™ Bus Systems and PowerWave Silver™ Bus Systems, cannot be used on the Hub’s
downstream Modbus chain.
1.6 Electrical Loads and Modbus Addresses
The downstream link from the BCMS Hub to its monitored devices has standard Modbus RTU restrictions:

Up to (32) electrical loads or drops along the downstream device chain. Each connection along the
Modbus RTU bus is an electrical load.

Up to (246) total Modbus addresses on the downstream device chain. Each points list has a Modbus
address, including Monitors.
1.6.1 Modbus Segments
Monitors create Modbus segments consisting of the Monitor and its downstream devices. Monitors are Modbus
masters on their own Modbus segments:

The BCMS Hub is the master on its downstream segment.

A Monitor on a RPP or JCOMM is the master on its Modbus segment, which usually has just the BCMS
devices (panelboards) in the RPP or JCOMM. Because these devices are in a separate Modbus
segment, they are not directly addressable from the BCMS Hub; the Hub retrieves data from these
devices by addressing the Monitor.
9
WaveStar BCMS Hub
If an RPP or JCOMM has a Monitor, the Monitor connection is the electrical load, and the BCMS cards in the RPP
or JCOMM are not electrical loads. However, if there is no Monitor, each BCMS card is an electrical load because
the BCMS cards are directly addressable from the Hub and is part of the Hub’s downstream Modbus segment.
For Bus Systems, the Accumulator Board in End Feed is Modbus master to its Tap-Off Boxes. (The 7" Local
Busway Display cannot be used with the BCMS Hub.)
1.6.2 Counting Electrical Loads and Modbus Addresses
You must be sure to stay within the Modbus limits. Figure 3 illustrates counting electrical loads and Modbus
addresses on the BCMS Hub downstream link to its devices.
1.6.3 Examples, Maximum Configurations
The following are examples of maximum configurations for either electrical loads or Modbus addresses:
(32) RPPs or JCOMMs each with Monitors, (2) BCMS PCBs, and (4) panelboards (Monitors are the electrical
loads):

(32) RPPs or JCOMMs with Monitors = (32) Electrical Loads (maximum)

(32) RPP or JCOMMs each with (1) Monitor and (4) PBs = 32 x 5 = (160) Modbus addresses
(16) RPPs or JCOMMs without Monitors, each with (2) BCMS PCBs and (4) panelboards (BCMS PCBs are the
electrical loads):

(2) BCMS PCBs per RPP or JCOMM: 16 RPPs/JCOMMs x 2 PCBs = (32) Electrical Loads (maximum)

(4) Panelboards per RPP or JCOMM: 16 RPPs/JCOMMs x 4 PBs = (64) Modbus addresses
(24) Bus System End Feeds with (9) Tap-Off Boxes each:

(24) End Feeds = (24) Electrical Loads

(24) Bus Runs with (10) addresses each (1 End Feed + 9 Tap-Off Boxes) = (240) Modbus Addresses
(near maximum)
1.6.4 Determining Modbus Addresses
Monitors are Modbus masters on their segment and adjust the Modbus addresses of their downstream devices
based on their own address. Because the BCMS Hub is a Modbus master and Monitors downstream in RPPs or
JCOMMs are also Modbus masters on their own segments, multiple address adjustments can occur. These
address adjustments can be confusing.
On the BCMS Hub Home screen you have a choice of showing devices Modbus addresses as seen from the
BCMS Hub or Modbus addresses as seen from the BMS or DCIM system (assuming the BMS or DCIM is next
upstream from the Hub). Using Offset = √ on Modbus Settings will show addresses on the Home screen as seen
from the BMS. This setting is recommended because it makes it easy to coordinate Modbus addresses between
the BCMS Hub and the BMS. See section 3.2.1 Modbus Settings.

Upstream and downstream are independent: one can be 2-wire and the other 4-wire. By default, Modbus RTU is
4-wire. For 2-wire Modbus RTU, install jumpers at the Modbus upstream and/or downstream connections on the
display’s backpanel as shown in Figure 7.
Customer Ethernet connection for an upstream TCP/IP link is made to the display’s backpanel (Figure 7).
2.3 Customer Connections BCMS Dual Hub
The BCMS Dual Hub has two BCMS Hub systems in a single enclosure. The two BCMS Hub systems are
completely independent of each another, with separate upstream links and downstream device chains, but they
share a common power supply.

single power supply is shared by both BCMS Hub
systems in the enclosure.
Figure 8 Customer Connections, BCMS Dual Hub, Left Inside Panel
2.3.1 Customer Power Connections, BCMS Dual Hub
Because both BCMS Hub systems share a common power supply, customer power connections are exactly the
same as for the single BCMS Hub system (Figure 8).
Customer provides input 1P 3-wire power, 100VAC – 277VAC:
1. Connect hot wire (black) to bottom of right fuse.

3. Connect ground (green) to the fuse DIN rail. Ground to the frame from the DIN rail is wired at the factory.
2.3.2 Customer Communications Connections, BCMS Dual Hub
The network connections on both BCMS Hub systems within a BCMS Dual Hub are separate and independent of
each other. For example, one uplink to a BMS from one of the Hub systems can be 2-wire and the other 4-wire.
Modbus RTU protocol is used downstream of each BCMS Hub system in a single daisy chain to all drops or
electrical loads (Figure 8).

display’s backpanel as shown in Figure 7.
Customer Ethernet connection for an upstream TCP/IP link is made to the display’s backpanel (Figure 7).
2.4 Customer Connections for Monitored Equipment
The BCMS Hub has a single Modbus RTU downstream link to its monitored devices, and Modbus allows (32)
downstream electrical loads or drops on this bus. These drops or connection points are where RPPs, JCOMMs,
and PowerWave, PowerWave 2, or PowerWave Silver Bus Systems are connected. How these connections are
made vary by the type of equipment that is monitored and whether it has its own Monitor.
Modbus wiring at each connection can also vary. For example, most units have Modbus Shield or Common in
position 3 on the plug, but JCOMM has Modbus Shield or Common in position 1.

WaveStar BCMS Hub
2.4.1 Remote Power Panel (RPP) Modbus RTU Connections
If an RPP has a WaveStar Color Monitor or a WaveStar Monitor (monochrome), the Monitor’s downstream link
connects to (1) or (2) BCMS Boards, which can monitor up to (4) panelboards.
An RPP typically has a terminal block (TB) with (4) connections that allow the RPP to be conveniently wired into
the BCMS Hub Modbus device chain (Figure 9):

Installation
2.4.2 JCOMM Modbus RTU Connections
JCOMMs are used to retrofit BCMS to PDI equipment or other vendors’ equipment that is already installed. If the
JCOMM has a Monitor, the Monitor is the electrical load. Otherwise, each BCMS card is an electrical load
(Figures 3 and 11).
The JCOMM Connections Panel (Figure 12) on the left side of the unit provides Modbus connectors to daisychain the JCOMM into the Hub’s Modbus (electrical load) chain.
When a JCOMM has a Monitor, the Monitor
is an electrical load in the device chain to
the BCMS Hub.
Without a Monitor, each BCMS card in the
JCOMM is an electrical load.

The Home screen User ID field returns to “Locked.”
The “Locked” condition also returns after (4) minutes without user activity.
Figure 14 Logging In and Out from Home Screen
3.1.2 Access Level
BCMS Hub security is based on the identification of each user by a PIN with an associated password.
The PIN identifies the user and the password allows access. The user name associated with the PIN is
displayed on the Home page when a user logs in. This scheme provides a login history and accurate
forensics if there is problem with the BCMS Hub.
The BCMS Hub has three access levels that require logging in:
1. PDI: This level has authorization for all actions except clearing the Event Log. PDI access is
required to use the Configuration screen.
2. Service: This access level is for PDI-authorized service representatives. This level has
authorization for all actions except using the Configuration Screen and clearing the Event Log.
3. Administrator: This access level has authorization for all actions except using the
Configuration Screen, which is not available to users. The Administrator is the only user who
can clear the Event Log.
If you attempt to use a screen control without correct authorization, the BCMS Hub Voice Response Unit
will state, “You do not have access to this function.”

3.2.1 Modbus Settings
The downstream link from the BCMS Hub to its monitored devices is always Modbus RTU at 9600 bps.
Modbus RTU parameters for upstream link from the BCMS Hub to the BMS or other Modbus master
device is specified in the Modbus Settings panel:

Address The Modbus address of the BCMS Hub as addressed from the upstream Modbus
master device can be changed by touching the Address button and entering a value from 1 to
246. Default address is 1.

Baud rate upstream from the BCMS Hub can be 9600 or 19200 bps.

Modbus RTU upstream parity can be even (e), odd (o) or none (n).

Offset determines whether the BCMS Hub Modbus address is added to downstream device
addresses when displayed on the Home page device list.

If Offset = X, the Modbus addresses of downstream devices as seen from the Hub are
shown.

If Offset = √, the Modbus address of the BCMS Hub is added to downstream device
addresses for display. These are Modbus addresses as seen from the upstream master
device, such as a BMS or DCIM system.
If Offset has a red (X), then the device addresses shown on the Home
screen are the downstream addresses as seen from the BCMS Hub.
If Offset is checked (√), the Address of the BCMS Hub is added to
device addresses, and the addresses shown on the Home screen are
upstream addresses as seen from the Modbus master, such as a BMS.
This Offset setting makes it easy to match BCMS Hub Modbus
addresses to addresses used in the BMS. (Recommended setting)
