Project example 58 3 Installation manual MHVISUAL 1.MHVISUAL 1.1 Fundamental concepts The MHVISUAL software can create a synoptic page, i.e. a clear and ordered representation of the SCS system installation, to give a tool which can simulate and then command the system itself. Using a simple and intuitive interface various objects can be positioned in the design to recreate the reality of the system installed. You can: • Check the configuration correctness. • Send a comfort command (lighting, automation and scenarios), also to systems with logical extention. • Manage the cameras. • Display the alarms from the burglar-alarm system: burglar-alarm and auxiliaries Manage the electrical appliances (Load control unit). • Manage the electrical appliances (Load control unit). • Display the Web Server parameters. • Send Open commands • Manage the Temperature control and Sound systems The MHVISUAL work area is divided into two parts: Design Area This is the MHVISUAL area where a design can be created, configured and managed. Monitoring Area This is the MHVISUAL area where you can interact with the components installed in the system, by means of the objects already inserted in the Design area. In this area the appearance or configuration of the design and objects inserted cannot be edited. 4 1.2 Connection mode One or more systems can be controlled (a HUB device or switch must be used if there are several systems) via an Ethernet network card suitably configured for access to one or more installed BTicino Web Servers (F452, F453AV). In this mode the command, safety and load control functions can be managed and, with item F453AV, the CCTV function as well.

The need to enter a design password stops an inexpert customer from quitting this area and returning to the Design area; then on entering MHVISUAL the design password will be requested for entry to the Design area, otherwise entry is directly to the Monitoring area.. Work area After connecting with the system you must enter the Monitoring area to interact with the components in the system. The MHVISUAL work area changes and specific tools appear. In the Design area select Start from the Interaction menu to start monitoring the connected system. The Monitoring area shows a screen displaying the various connection steps. Once the procedure is completed, using the objects previously introduced and configured in the Design area, it will be possible to interact with the corresponding system components and check their status. The state of the system components can be deduced from the type of icon displayed by the object entered in the project. 50 The tools available in the Monitoring area are: • Remote control • Alarms • Options Open the remote control Open the alarm window Open the options window 6.1 Remote control In this window you can start, stop and monitor the project. You can also move from one sheet to another and display/hide the levels. Select the sheet Return to the main screen Display/hide the levels Start the monitoring Update the display Stop the monitoring 51 Installation manual MHVISUAL 6.2 Alarms Alarm indication Flashing: in progress Steady: alarm to be dealt with/ closed When the system generates an alarm, a visual indication appears and a sound signal is played (if set in Options). The alarms can be generated by an object (SCS actuator or SCS mover, see relevant sections), or by the burglar-alarm system (see “Burglar-alarm unit object” section). The Alarm screen shows different functions based on the initial selection of the alarm management mode: “Basic” or “Advanced”. Alarms – “Basic” When the system has generated an alarm indication click on the Alarm icon. The Alarm being given window appears. Alarm in progress Alarm history Select column Alarm reset force Icon legend Stop the audible warning This window displays some data on the alarm. Decide which data must appear by clicking on the Select column pushbutton. The Select column window selects which fields should be displayed in the columns, in both the Alarm in progress and Event history windows. Various types of information on the event will be displayed depending on the fields selected. 52 The events recorded by the system (alarms and messages) are listed in the Event history window. “Icon” column “State” column Further information may be obtained on the alarm state by means of the colouring of the data in the lines - red for the alarms which have not been dealt with and grey for the closed alarms. On selecting an alarm all the events linked to the alarm itself are displayed (pink background). In this way its “history” can be reconstructed. After displaying the alarm in the Alarms in progress window its reset can be forced by pressing the Alarm reset force pushbutton or on the field checking its cause. In the first case the alarm is no longer present in the Alarms in progress window but remains active on the field, until it is reset physically. 53 Installation manual MHVISUAL Example: An SCS mover object has been configured to generate an alarm when it receives an UP command (rolling shutter raised); to end the alarm, send a STOP command or reset the alarm by pressing the Alarm reset force key. If the alarm comes from a burglar alarm unit the unit must be switched off and on again. Start alarm (UP) End alarm (STOP) A Start alarm (UP) Forced reset B In the first case (Alarm A) the alarm has been dealt with in the field (sending a STOP rolling shutter command) and thus the cause of the alarm has been dealt with. In fact the colouring is grey, which indicates that the alarm is closed. In the second case (Alarm B) it has not been dealt with in the field, but a forced reset has been performed, so that the alarm has not been dealt with (red) and thus even if it is no longer present in the alarm window it is still open. Alarm – “Advanced” sector If the type of project has been set as “Advanced”, the alarms are managed differently. In fact the project also has the Alarms to manage and Alarm history sections. There are new icons as well, as can be seen in the Legend window. Alarms to manage Icon legend Alarm history In this mode the alarm can be undertaken and then dealt with. The undertaken alarm becomes blue. 54 Following an alarm warning click on the pushbutton to enter the Alarms to manage window. Double clicking on the line of the alarm to be managed the following window appears: Alarm data Alarm state Help In this window the alarm state can be changed by clicking on the Change state pushbutton and confirming the selection by clicking on the Confirm modification pushbutton Icon field • Cancel cancels the operation • Change state changes the alarm state • Confirm modification confirms the change of state The alarms are displayed in the Alarm history window where the alarm state can be checked on the basis of the icon in the State column and the text colour. 55 Installation manual MHVISUAL Example: the burglar-alarm unit has given a burglar-alarm alarm in zone 1. The “Alarms” window shows a visual indication and a warning sounds. Click on the Alarm icon. The Alarm being given window appears showing the cause of the alarm and where it is coming from. Then enter the Alarms to manage by clicking its key. Now follow the diagram below: Alarms to manage Change state System Change state A Double click Undertaken Reset on the field Alarm closed Alarms in progress Forced reset Change state B Alarm closed The Event history window displays how the alarms have been managed. Start alarm Undertaken A Reset from the field Close alarm Start alarm Undertaken Reset forcing Close alarm 56 B 6.3 Options The audible warning which is given following an alarm can be customised in the Options window. Clicking on the Options pushbutton opens the following window: Press the Change pushbutton to customise the audible warning. If not a predefined sound will be played. >> Select a .wav file >> Click on the Open pushbutton and then Ok Quitting the Monitoring area The following window appears: >> Press the Design pushbutton to return to the design mode >> Press the Ok pushbutton to suspend monitoring without quitting. 57 Installation manual MHVISUAL 7.Project example Considering the variety of types of project which MHVISUAL can produce, this chapter gives a project example as an indication. Project features: • ”Basic” alarm management • Control lighting, automation, controlled loads, burglar alarm, temperature control and sound systems • • general, room, group and scenario commands Start MHVISUAL and create a new project the Project configuration window appears For project name enter “Residential”, for work area enter the size 1012 x 647 pixels, and select “Basic” alarm management. Enable communication with the field. 58 Create one or more sheets for each apartment room. For example 4 sheets for the living room in which later we will enter 4 different views. In each sheet enter a picture* (drawing, photo etc.) which represents the room. *Do not insert larges images in the working area: if necessary, reduce using graphic editors. 59 Installation manual MHVISUAL By means of the rectangle, text label and picture objects, enter connections to move from one view to another. Enter objects and configure them like the devices in the system. 60 Create general, room, and group Open commands and configure them following the indications of the corresponding paragraphs and then copy them for the other rooms. Using the text label objects, create links to move from one room to another. Create a sheet where you can enter objects and commands (e.g. load control, Web Server, sound source, etc.) so that the whole apartment is kept under control in a single window. 61 Installation manual MHVISUAL From the Interaction menu select Project validation to check that there are no configuration errors in the objects entered. Then, selecting Start, start monitoring the system. At the end of the operation you can interact with the system in the Monitoring area. 62 1.Once the monitoring has started, without receiving configuration warnings or errors, why can I not activate a light point? You may have made one of the following errors: a) entered an incorrect IP address, b) set a configuration which does not correspond to the real one, c) entered a mover instead of an actuator or vice versa, d) configured the actuator as dimmer while the actuator on the field is not. 2.Why can I not close the application by clicking on the close window key ? You must display the remote control and stop the monitoring by clicking on the “stop” key Press OK and finally click on the close key . . 3.I cannot start the monitoring and it tells me to check the configuration. Why? You may have some problems with the connection to the ethernet network. 4.How can I make a multiple selection in the Design area? Keeping the “shift” key pressed click with the left mouse key on all the objects to be selected or click with the left mouse key on one point and move the mouse to enclose the objects of interest in the outlined rectangle you are drawing. 5.As soon as I start the monitoring some objects are not on line. Why? They are not effectively on line or it is an actuator which has been configured as PUL both on the field and in the MHVISUAL project but not in the Web Server system configuration file. 6.What happens if I create 2 SCS objects (SCS actuator or SCS mover) which are not totally identical in the SCS configuration? MHVISUAL checks automatically when it starts the monitoring. If the configuration is correct the project enters the monitoring mode and the two objects can be commanded. If not, depending on the type of fault found it may display warnings, which do not affect correct projection operation, or alarms. In the latter case you must correct the errors found before continuing the monitoring. 7.In a project I have configured everything correctly but I do not find everything on line. Why? Web Server isn’t reachable or it has an OPEN password different from the project. 8.I have 2 actuators in the “Design” area which I cannot put on the same horizontal line by means of the up-down keys in the coordinates area of the “Object properties”. Why? Just manually edit the coordinates of one of them in relation to the other. The up-down command in fact only moves the object by 5 pixels. Probably one of the two objects was configured manually, with the coordinates being entered directly. 9.After a general or room ON command why does the program show a light as switched on even if it is not? Check whether the actuator is configured as PUL both on the field and in the Web Server system configuration file and the MHVISUAL project. 10. I have set an SCS dimmer command object for a room but when I vary the percentage one of the dimmers does not respond. Why? The actuator is not a dimmer or it has been configured as PUL and not entered in the Web Server system configuration file. 11. Can I make a project start automatically when Windows starts? Yes, the project must be password protected (see paragraph “ Automatic project startup”). 12. How do I change the IP or the OPEN password for several objects at the same time? Make a multiple selection of similar objects and edit the data in the object properties window. If, for example you do not find the IP the objects selected may contain an object which does not have an IP in its configuration. 63 Installation manual MHVISUAL 13. What is the difference between “Basic” and “Advanced” alarm management? The difference is that in “Basic” alarm management, the “Current alarm” (list of alarms which have occurred and are not yet re-entered and where the alarm can be reset) and the “Event log” (list of the alarm and system events). The “Advanced” type management also includes the “Alarm log” and “Alarms to manage” lists, to enable to management of the alarm (reset, undertaken and closure). 14. Can I interact with the MHVISUAL program with a touch screen or tablet PC as well? Yes, compatible with the hardware requirements. 15. When monitoring do I have to use the remote control to change from one sheet to the other? No, you can also use the links between the various sheets if they have been created in the Design phase. 64 BTicino SpA Via Messina, 38 20154 Milano - Italy www.bticino.com BTicino SpA reserves at any time the right to modify the contents of this booklet and to communicate, in any form and modality, the changes brought to the same.
