The Hawki provides 6 digital output connections at Terminals 40 through 51.
The digital outputs are dry contacts rated at 24-VAC, 2A, pilot duty. Connect the
wiring to the correct terminals as specified on the shield under Digital Outputs.
The status of the digital output is indicated by the 6 output status light-emitting
diodes (LEDs) located to the left of each output description on the shield. The
output status LEDs match the status of the relay as follows:
If the contact is closed, the relay is energized and the LED is on.
If the contact is open, the relay is de-energized and the LED is off.
Connecting Network
Use a suitable shielded cable (Belden 8761, Novar Controls WIR-1010, or
equivalent) to make the communication connections between the Hawki and the
module communications terminals of the Lingo, Savvy, or EP/2. On the Hawki,
the communications connections are Terminals 54, 55, and 56, which are located
in the upper right corner of the circuit board.
The labeling for the network communications is shown on the shield to the left of
the terminal connections.
NOTE! Make certain that the positive (+) and the negative (–)
connections are made correctly.
A network communications schedule status LED is located directly above the
terminals. This LED blinks according to the schedule mode. (See “Checking
Installation” for information about the operation of this LED.)
NOTE! The Shield connection (Terminal 55) is dedicated for
communications only. Do not connect any other grounds
to the Shield connection.
Supplying the Hawki
with Power
The Hawki is powered by 24-VAC, requiring 15 VA. Connect the 24 volts to
Terminals 52 and 53 located in the upper right corner of the circuit board, just
below the network communications connections.
The labeling for the power supply is shown on the shield to the left of the power
terminal connections.
NOTE! The 24 VAC power connection is isolated. One
transformer can be used to power multiple modules within
the restrictions of the 15 VA consumption.

Checking Installation
Check the following items to ensure proper operation.
Make sure that the module is mounted according to the instructions in this
Check the wiring to verify that all of the connections are secure and wired
NOTE! The Hawki is designed to provide out-of-the-box control
before the module receives a download from a Lingo,
Savvy, or EP/2. Although the Hawki powers up in
scheduled off mode, a jumper wire (short) can be placed
across Terminals 34 and 35 to make it control to scheduled
on mode (70°F heat, 74°F cool). The Hawki stays
scheduled on until the jumper wire is removed and for up
to 10 additional minutes after the jumper wire is removed.
Check the power connection.
Turn on the power to the Hawki, the HVAC system, and its control circuitry.
If the system components are operating properly, the Hawki performs a
self-diagnostic check; establishes communications with the Lingo, Savvy, or
EP/2; and begins to control the HVAC unit.
Check the network communications schedule status LED located in the upper
right corner of the circuit board, just above the network communications
If the module is communicating properly, this LED should be flashing
according to the schedule mode or timed override.
— When the Hawki is in scheduled off mode, the LED is off and flashes on
briefly when communicating.
— When the Hawki is in scheduled on mode, the LED is on and flashes off
briefly when communicating.
Check the digital outputs.
The 6 digital output status LEDs indicate the status of each active digital output.
Verify that the LEDs are lit when the corresponding digital output is on.
Check for alarm messages.
The LOGIC ONE self-diagnostic programs check the operation of the system.
Any faults or malfunctions are displayed in the form of alarm messages at the
executive module’s display, if applicable, or in the software. Vary the Hawki
setpoints and verify that the equipment is responding properly.
