Tracer ZN511 zone controller
The Tracer ZN511 zone controller
provides digital control of fan coils and
water-source heat pumps. The Tracer
ZN511 improves comfort control and
provides stand-alone or networked
building automation.
Inputs and outputs
Tracer ZN511 inputs and outputs include:
• Analog inputs: zone temperature,
entering or leaving water temperature,
discharge air temperature, zone temperature setpoint, fan mode switch
• Binary inputs: occupancy, condensate overflow, low water temperature,
low pressure protection, high pressure protection
• Outputs: water-source heat pump:
compressor 1, compressor 2, twoposition outside air damper, reversing
valve, fan on/off
Fan coil: fan high, fan medium, fan
low, 1 cool, 1 heat, two-position
outside air damper
• Generic points for use with a Tracer
Summit building automation system:
binary input (shared with occupancy),
binary output (shared with outside air
damper)
The generic inputs pass information to
the building automation system. They do
not affect the operation of the unit. The
generic binary output is controlled by
the building automation system and its
state is not changed by unit operation,
even under a diagnostic shutdown.
Features
Easy installation
The controller can be installed in existing
Trane and competitive HVAC equipment
without major wiring changes, and
clearly labeled screw terminals ensure
that wires are connected quickly and
accurately. A compact enclosure design
simplifies installation in minimal space.
Entering water temperature sampling
A traditional system using a two-way
control valve on a fan coil might not
sense the correct entering water
temperature during long periods when
the control valve is closed. The Tracer
ZN511 solves this problem by opening
the valve for three minutes to allow the
water temperature to stabilize before
4
the temperature is taken. This feature
allows the use of two-way control valves
to provide accurate two-pipe system
changeover for 1heat/1 cool applications.
Automatic heat/cool mode
determination
The Tracer ZN511 automatically
determines whether heating or cooling
is needed to maintain comfort levels,
without the need to manually adjust unit
controls. The controller measures the
zone temperature and setpoint
temperature, then uses a proportional/
integral algorithm to maintain zone
temperature at the setpoint.
Occupied and unoccupied operation
The occupancy input works with a
motion (occupancy) sensor or time
clock. A communicated value from a
building automation system through the
LonTalk communication link can also be
used. The input allows the controllers to
use unoccupied (setback) temperature
setpoints.
Random start
This feature randomly staggers multipleunit start-up to reduce electrical demand
spikes.
Warm-up and cool-down
This feature is available with the
installation of an outside air damper. If
the room temperature drifts too far from
the setpoint, the controller temporarily
closes the damper to bring the
temperature to the desired setpoint as
quickly as possible.
Manual output test
Pressing the test button on the
controller exercises all binary outputs in
sequence. This feature is an invaluable
troubleshooting tool.
Peer-to-peer communication
Multiple controllers can share data if
they are bound together. Shared data
can include setpoint, zone temperature,
mode, and fan status. Applications
having more than one unit serving a
single large space can benefit from this
feature, which prevents multiple units
from simultaneously heating and
cooling.
Interoperability
The Tracer ZN511 conforms to the
LonMark® Space Comfort Controller
(SCC) profile and communicates via the
LonTalk protocol. This allows it to work
with other control systems that support
LonTalk and the SCC profile.
Continuous fan or fan-cycling
operation
Users can choose to have the fan run
continuously at a given speed, or cycle
on and off automatically by selecting the
AUTO mode.
Equipment protection
The Tracer ZN511 includes inputs that
allow for the following equipment
protection:
• Refrigerant high- and low-pressure
protection to prevent the unit from
operating with high/low refrigeration
pressure levels (heat pump only)
• Compressor minimum on and off timers to extend compressor life by preventing short cycling (heat pump only)
• A condensate overflow switch to prevent water damage to the building
• Low-temperature detection to prevent
compressor operation during
abnormal conditions (heat pump) or
coil freeze-up (fan coil)
Timed override
The timed override function for after
hours operation allows users to request
unit operation by the touch of a button
on the unit zone sensor. Additionally,
users can press the CANCEL button at
any time to place the unit back into
unoccupied mode.
Fan status
The controller monitors the fan output
status as proof of airflow. This method is
cost effective and commonly used on
direct-drive fan applications.
Filter maintenance
Filter maintenance status is based on
the cumulative hours of operation of the
unit fan. The controller has timers that
can be reset, and when the time limit
expires, Tracer Summit software or the
Rover service tool indicates that unit
maintenance is recommended.

Tracer ZN521 zone controller
The Tracer ZN521 zone controller
provides digital control of fan coils, unit
ventilators, and blower coils. The Tracer
ZN521 improves comfort control and
provides stand-alone or networked
building automation.
Inputs and outputs
Tracer ZN521 inputs and outputs
include:
• Analog inputs: zone temperature,
space setpoint, fan speed, entering
water temperature, discharge air temperature, outside air temperature,
zone relative humidity
• Binary inputs: occupancy, low coil
temperature detection, fan status,
condensate overflow detection
• Outputs: Fan high, fan medium, fan
low, exhaust fan on/of, cooling valve,
heating valve, face and bypass
damper, economizer damper, electric
heat (two stages)
• Generic points for use with a Tracer
Summit building automation system:
binary input (shared with occupancy),
binary output (shared with baseboard
heat), two analog inputs (one shared
with humidity sensor and often used
with the optional carbon dioxide
sensor, and the second shared with
outdoor air temperature)
The generic inputs pass information to
the building automation system. They do
not affect the operation of the unit. The
generic binary output is controlled by
the building automation system and its
state is not changed by unit operation,
even under a diagnostic shutdown.
Features
Easy installation
The controller can be installed in existing
Trane and competitive HVAC equipment
without major wiring changes, and
clearly labeled screw terminals ensure
that wires are connected quickly and
accurately. A compact enclosure design
simplifies installation in minimal space.
Modulating control
The Tracer ZN521 provides exceptional
comfort control through hydronic valve
and damper tri-state modulation and a
proportional-integral control algorithm.
6
Cascade control
Cascade control differs from zone
temperature control in that the unit
resets the discharge air temperature to
control the zone. Cascade control
manages zone temperature more
effectively than zone temperature
control, in which the discharge air
temperature can exceed comfort levels.
Entering water temperature sampling
Traditional equipment using a two-way
control valve might not sense the
correct entering water temperature
during long periods when the control
valve is closed. The Tracer ZN521 solves
this problem by opening the valve for
three minutes to allow the water
temperature to stabilize before the
temperature is taken. This feature allows
the use of two-way control valves to
provide accurate two-pipe system
changeover for 1heat/1 cool applications.
Automatic heat/cool mode
determination
The Tracer ZN521 automatically
determines whether heating or cooling
is needed to maintain comfort levels,
without the need to manually adjust unit
controls. The controller measures the
zone temperature and setpoint
temperature, then uses a proportional/
integral algorithm to maintain zone
temperature at the setpoint.
Occupied and unoccupied operation
The occupancy input works with a
motion (occupancy) sensor or time
clock. A communicated value from a
building automation system through the
LonTalk communication link can also be
used. The input allows the controllers to
use unoccupied (setback) temperature
setpoints.
Random start
This feature randomly staggers multipleunit start-up to reduce electrical demand
spikes.
Warm-up and cool-down
This feature is available with the
installation of an outside air damper. If
the room temperature drifts too far from
the setpoint, the controller temporarily
closes the damper to bring the
temperature to the desired setpoint as
quickly as possible.
Manual output test
Pressing the test button on the
controller exercises all binary outputs in
sequence. This feature is an invaluable
troubleshooting tool.
Peer-to-peer communication
Multiple controllers can share data if
they are bound together. Shared data
can include setpoint, zone temperature,
mode, and fan status. Applications
having more than one unit serving a
single large space can benefit from this
feature, which prevents multiple units
from simultaneously heating and
cooling.
Interoperability
The Tracer ZN521 conforms to the
LonMark® Space Comfort Controller
(SCC) profile and communicates via the
LonTalk protocol. This allows it to work
with other control systems that support
LonTalk and the SCC profile.
Equipment protection
The Tracer ZN521 includes inputs that
allow for the following equipment
protection:
• A condensate overflow switch to prevent water damage to the building
• Low-temperature detection to help
prevent coil freeze-up
• Discharge air temperature limiting to
help prevent the coil from freezing
Automatic fan speed reset
Units set to AUTO operate at the default
fan speeds (cooling and heating may
have different default speeds). If the
default fan speed is high, medium, or
low, the unit operates accordingly.
If the default fan speed is set to AUTO,
the fan operates at low speed most of
the time. If the temperature exceeds the
setpoint by more than 2°F (1°C), the
controller changes the fan speed to
medium or high. This allows the unit to
operate at low speed whenever
possible.
BAS-PRC006-EN
Automatic ventilation reset
Because ensuring proper ventilation
rates is so important for indoor air
quality, the Tracer ZN521 is configured
with two outside/fresh air damper
minimum position setpoints for
occupied operation. As the fan speed
changes, the damper minimum position
changes to maintain the correct
ventilation rate.
Fan status
The Tracer ZN521 has two methods of
monitoring fan status. The first method
monitors the fan output status on the
unit controller. This method is typically
used with direct fan applications.
The controller can also accept a binary
input from a fan proof switch for belt
driven applications. When fan operation
is expected by the controller but not
confirmed by the proof switch, a
diagnostic message is generated and
unit operation is disabled.
Filter maintenance
Filter maintenance status is based on
the cumulative hours of operation of the
unit fan. The controller has timers that
can be reset, and when the time limit
expires, Tracer Summit software or the
Rover service tool indicates that unit
maintenance is recommended.
BAS-PRC006-EN
Water valve override
This function causes all of the water
valves in every unit to open
simultaneously at a command from
Tracer Summit software or the Rover
service tool. This function reduces the
time required for balancing the water
distribution system.
Relative humidity input
An analog input can be configured as a
relative humidity input. The controller
can use this value to support the
dehumidification function.
Active dehumidification
This feature keeps relative humidity
levels within ASHRAE 62-89R guidelines
to maximize comfort and minimize the
risk of microbial growth and damage to
the building or furnishings due to
humidity. The controller can provide
active dehumidification when the
equipment includes a reheat coil and a
humidity sensor.
CO2 input
Two-stage electric heat
The Tracer ZN521 supports 1- or 2-stage
electric heat operation for heating. To
control the zone temperature, electric
heat is cycled to control the discharge air
temperature. The rate of cycling is
dependent on the load in the space and
the temperature of any incoming fresh
air from the economizer.
Two-pipe changeover units with electric
heat use electric heat when hot water is
not available.
Economizing control
When the Tracer ZN521 is configured for
economizing control, it opens the
outdoor damper to the calculated
position to provide “free” cooling as
required. If the damper is completely
open and the setpoint is still not
achieved, the cooling valve opens to
satisfy load requirements. As cooling
load requirements decrease, the valve
closes until the setpoint is reached or
the damper reaches its adjustable
minimum position.
An analog input can be configured to
measure CO2. Tracer Summit can use
the input in a variety of applications. This
input has no direct effect on the
operation of the controller.
