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.

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.

4.2.3 Project management
On selecting Project management from the Tool menu, the Explore project window is displayed.
This allows a more ordered management of a project creating several work sheets (e.g. for apartments over several floors, create a “first floor” sheet and a “second floor” sheet).
On clicking on the sheet with the right mouse key, a menu appears where various operations can be
performed on the project sheets.
- Connect several work sheets
Inside a work sheet connections can be created to other sheets (link) by means of the objects: rectangle, text and picture.
>> Enter one of these objects in the first sheet
>> Set the sheet to be connected in the Associated sheet properties
In the Monitoring area double click on the entered object to display its sheet.

4.2.4 Automatic project startup
A connection can be created to the project file and it can be positioned in Windows Start-up. In this
way the file opens automatically when the operating system is started.
Create a connection to the project file (.mhv) to be opened when Windows starts, then drag it into
the Start-up subfolder of the Window Programs folder.
If you want the customer to see the MHVISUAL Monitoring area directly when the project file is
opened, set and enable a project password and enable the plant communication.

MHVISUAL
4.3 Objects
An MHVISUAL project is made up of a set of objects: some have a purely graphical function while
others, correctly configured, have the function of generating commands and replicating command
components really installed in the system.
4.3.1 Object management and formatting
The properties of the objects entered in the project (identification, coordinates, appearance and
configuration) can be set and the objects themselves can then be managed by windows (Layer
management, SCS configuration).
Also, the objects can be ordered and positioned as needed by means of the commands in the Drawing menu.
In particular the objects can be selected by means of the Select tool in the Drawing menu. To select
a group of objects, click on the objects keeping the Ctrl key pressed or keep the left mouse key
pressed and drag the pointer until all the objects are included in the selection window.
- Object properties
The objects which can be used to make the project are shown below. The object’s characteristic
properties can be set in the Object properties window.
The Identification and Coordinates properties are similar for all the objects, while the Appearance
and Configuration properties are specific for each type of object and will be dealt with in the Objects chapter.
Identification - Coordinates
The object is identified and positioned in this window.
Displays the type of object
Displays and sets the layer to which the object belongs
Sequential number which identifies the objects of the same
type
Sets the positioning of the object in the work area
18
- Layer
When an object is positioned in the project it is automatically assigned to a layer on the basis of the
system it belongs to.
As default the objects with purely graphical function (line, rectangle, etc.) are not assigned to any
system. They can later be assigned to a specific system.
On selecting Display layers in the Interaction menu, a window is opened where the layers which
make up the project can be displayed/hidden.
Select the
layers which
you want to
display in the
project
- SCS configuration
An object must be suitably configured for it to interact with the system.
On selecting SCS configuration in the Tools menu, the following window is opened:
In this window, using a tree structure, the properties of all the objects entered in the project can be
displayed and edited.
The objects are grouped on the basis of the server they belong to (IP Address property). If the server
IP address is edited all the IP addresses of the objects which are part of it are edited.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
