Digital Enclosure Control

DEC4 TM – that’s Digital Enclosure Control, fourth

Generation – is the brain of your Tempest enclosure. It will maintain the internal environment in a comfortable temperature and humidity range, and prevent condensation – the real killer of outdoor equipment. DEC4 monitors internal and external temperature, humidity and lamp current at all times, and uses this information to control the enclosure’s lamp relay, fan(s) and heater(s). It can report back over an RS485 network, using the RDM protocol (Remote Device Management), or connect to your TCP/IP network for remote monitoring amd management using Tempest’s TEMP protocol.

DEC4 Main Functions

1. Sense current to projector (lamp on/off)

2. Record lamp hours

3. Monitor temperature and humidity inside

Enclosure

4. Monitor temperature outside enclosure

5. Maintain internal temperature at safe operating level

6. Maintain relative humidity within safe limits to prevent condensation

7. Isolate projector in case of unsafe temperature

8. Report status over RS485, RDM, TCP/IP

9. Maintain positive pressure (optional) 24/7 to prevent ingress of salt air and other contaminants

10. Circulates air internally to prevent hot and cold spots when projector is idle

DEC3.3 constantly monitors the following parameters:

Projector/Luminaire current

Line Voltage

Temperature

Humidity

Factory Settings – Basic Mode

DEC 3.3’s patented Goldilocks TM algorithm uses a combination of sensors, heaters and fans to maintain a safe operating temperature and a safe relative humidity level that will not allow condensation to take place.

As air is heated it is able to support more moisture without condensing, so Goldilocks uses heat to raise the air temperature inside the enclosure in the event that relative humidity approaches dewpoint.

In most applications, DEC3.3 will operate correctly with its factory default settings, in Basic operating mode.

You do not need to do anything. Please skip to the Power

Connections section below.

Other Operating Modes

Monitor Mode

Control Mode

Service Mode

As Basic mode, plus:

• RDM status reporting over RS485

• RDM configuration – settings may be changed remotely or at the enclosure control panel

As Basic mode, plus:

Enclosure functions as a 1-channel DMX device, with remote control of the lamp relay o

DMX level > 75% enables normal relay operation

(normally ON) o

DMX level < 25% disables normal relay operation

(relay turns OFF) o

This allows you to force a hard reset of the lamp relay in the event of a projector malfunction

Control mode is recommended for show control applications, but can be risky in live show operation, since the DMX slot used for the enclosure MUST be kept high to prevent the lamp relay from opening.

For trained service personnel only

Normal operation is suspended and the enclosure functions as a 3-channel DMX device: o

Lamp Relay (Slot 1) o

Fans (Slot 2) o

Heater (Slot 3)

Service mode is ONLY for troubleshooting – DO NOT use

Service mode for normal operation.

Note: A thermal emergency is when enclosure ventilation fails with the lamp on, in which case the temperature will rise very quickly. To avoid nuisance tripping we recommend setting a higher Trip temperature, 60°C or above.

Set Max Humidity

(default 80%, permissible range 50-90%).

Set target maximum relative humidity level. This should be set at or a few % higher than the normal high humidity levels expected on site.

Set Lamp On Point

The lamp current at which DEC detects the projector/luminaire lamp is running. Default is 1 Amp, which allows for equipment fans and power supplies to run without changing the air in the enclosure. Lamp on point may be set in

0.2 Amp increments between 0.2 Amps and 2.0 Amps.

Troubleshooting

Projector does not have power:

Enclosure overheats:

Dirt/Debris inside enclosure

Water in enclosure

Fan LED is on but fans do not operate

Heater LED is on but heater does not operate

None of the above?

Blizzard G4 User Manual

1. Check Projector power switch

2. Check projector is plugged into DEC4 projector outlet

3. Check that enclosure feed circuit is on

4. Check DEC4 User Interface leds are on. If feed circuit is on and UI leds are off, check feed wiring to DEC terminals and meter DEC4 projector outlet for power

5. If UI lamp led is on and DEC4 projector outlet is live, there is a projector fault.

1. Is the projector connected to the DEC4 projector receptacle? If the projector is powered independently the controller has no way to know when to turn on the exhaust fans!

2. Is the filter clogged or obstructed?

3. Check that the Fan led on the UI is on when the projector is running. If not, then the projector is probably not connected to the DEC (see 1).

4. If the fan led is on, check that the fan is running. If not, check fan wiring. If wiring is ok, fan may be faulty.

5. Check the UI display for RH (relative humidity) message. If display reads RH 5%, RH 100%, or RH###, there is a sensor fault. Contact Tempest for a replacement sensor.

1. Filter is either missing or damaged?

2. Filter is not properly seated

3. Side panels or back door is not firmly latched

1. Check the drain holes in the bottom of the enclosure. If they become blocked, and water that gets in cannot escape.

2. Check seals around side panels and back door

The exhaust fan is protected by a 20mm 4A slow-blow fuse on the DEC4 motherboard, and a secondary fuse on the fan board.

In very exceptional cases it is possible that either fuse could fail. Check visually.

The fuse is protected with a clear resin sealant and soldered to the circuit board. With care, you can de-solder the fuse and replace it, but we recommend replacing the DEC4 motherboard to maintain the integrity of the board’s conformal coating.

The heater is protected by a 20mm 10A slow-blow fuse on the

DEC4 motherboard. In very exceptional cases it is possible that it could fail. Check visually.

The fuse is protected with a clear resin sealant and soldered to the circuit board. With care, you can de-solder the fuse and replace it, but we recommend replacing the DEC4 motherboard to maintain the integrity of the board’s conformal coating.

Appendix – TEMP Protocol

AVAILABLE TO SPECIAL ORDER

Tempest can optionally provide a firmware load that facilitates TEMP over RS485, suitable for interfacing to an Ethernet adapter. TEMP is a lightweight proprietary ASCII based protocol, intended for rapid integration into management systems.

With TEMP and a suitable RS485 to Ethernet adaptor connected to the DEC DMX connectors, your DEC may be configured and monitored over an IP network.

Please contact factory for ordering information.

Physical Layer

1. EITHER: Use a 51.EN Ethernet daughter board plugged directly to the DEC4 motherboard, connected to your TCP/IP network.

2. OR: Use a 51.485 RS485 daughter board on each of a number of DEC4 motherboards, and use one of the convertors listed below to bridge to your TCP/IP network.

Suitable Converters include: http://gridconnect.com/rs485-ethernet.html

http://www.audon.co.uk/lan232/ENET485-POE.html

http://uk.rs-online.com/web/generalDisplay.html?id=brainboxes

Protocol Implementation

The protocol is a half-duplex ASCII syntax, based on a client-server model.

1. Terms and Conventions

All commands are initiated by a TEMP Controller and are responded to by a TEMP Responder.

Commands and Responses are collectively referred to as packets.

A single Command and associated Response is referred to as an exchange.

2.1 TEMP Controller

A TEMP controller is not to be confused with a DEC or ‘DEC Controller’. The TEMP Controller, referred to here on in as a Controller will be the system of software that is a client of the Tempest DECs.

All serial packets sent by the Controller will be referred to as a command.

2.2 TEMP Responder

Blizzard G4 User Manual 33

A TEMP Responder, for the purpose of this document, referrers to a Tempest DEC and from here on, is referred to as a Responder.

All serial packets sent by a Responder will be referred to as a response.

3. Connectivity

3.1 Physical Connection

The connection to the Tempest Equipment is via an RS485 Buss with Controller Idle Sate bias, compliant with ANSI E1.20 section 2.4.1. at 250K Baud, 8 data bits, two stop bits.

3.2 DEC Configuration

For a DEC to be operable with TEMP, the DEC must be configured to be in ‘BASIC’ mode. For further details on configuring a DEC, refer to the accompanying user manual.

4. Responder Addressing

The responder address will be the electronic UID of the responder. A responder UID is comprised of a PLASA manufacturer ID and a unique manufacturer serial number. For Tempest equipment, the vendor ID or VID is $544C.

The remaining 8 characters are a hexadecimal extrapolation of the responder serial number, so for example, a serial number of 64035 would be represented by a hexadecimal value of $0000FA23. These two strings combined together form the responder address $544C0000FA23.

The responder serial number can be found on the Tempest electronics or by accessing the user display and scrolling the status information.

A Get command to address $FFFFFFFFFFFF will solicit a response from all responders, which having more than one responder on a single buss will cause a data conflict.

A Set command to address $FFFFFFFFFFFF will be acted on by a responder but not responded to.

1 Command Structure

Each packet is transmitted as an ASCII string, enclosed in the reserved characters ‘<’ and ‘>’.

Any traffic between the < and > characters shall be disregarded.

On receipt of a < character before the final > character, all preceding data shall be disregarded.

Each packet is addressed to an associated Responder.

Each packet contains a reserved Command or Response Identifier character, being ‘?’ or ‘!’ respectively.

The responder address shall be sent immediately after the command or response Identifier.

There are two classes of exchange, Set to configure and Get to retrieve status data.

5.1 Get Command Example.

<?:$544C0000FA23;GET:STS=ALL>

Blizzard G4 User Manual 34

5.2 Get Response Example

<!:$544C000FA23;STS:ACV=#223,ACC=#5.3,ATM=#32,RHM=#62,RLY=AUT>

5.3 Set Command Example

<?:$544C000FA23;SET:RLY=OFF>

5.4 Set Response Example

<!:$544C000FA23;RLY=OFF>

6 Packet Parsing

6.1 Order of Precedence

Packets are syntactically arranged for parsing in order of precedence, the precedence being a semicolon, colon and comma.

6.2 Type Identifiers

· Decimal values are preceded by a hash character

· Hexadecimal values are preceded by a dollar character

· Text strings are preceded by a literal character ‘ (Not enclosed)

· All other data implicitly represents and enumerated constant

6.3 Reserved Characters

The following character are reserved for syntactic control:

< > ! ? # $ ‘ = ; : , \

Reserved characters used in strings will be preceded by the reserved escape character \ .

Character Use Description

\ \\ Backslash

< \< Start of packet

> \< Packet terminator

? \? Command Packet Identifier

! \! Response Packet Identifier

# \# Decimal Value Descriptor

$ \$ Hexadecimal Value Descriptor

‘ \’ String Literal

; \; Packet section separator

: \: Packet Section Label Identifier

Blizzard G4 User Manual 35

, \, Parameter separator

= \= Parameter value Identifier

Packet Parameters

Each packet will contain one or more parameters, each parameter being in the format NNN=D, NNN being the three letter Mnemonic or PID to identify the parameter and D being the value or data of the parameter. In a frame payload, all parameters are cardinal with no pre-determination of the order.

Set command packets may only contain one parameter.

6.4 Set PIDs

6.4.1 RLY

This is used to change the operational mode of the relay in a DEC. Arguments for this PID are:

· AUT Automatic, in control of the DEC and closed (on) by default.

· OFF Takes control from the DEC and holds the relay open (off)

Response to this parameter will be one of the following enumerated constants:

· OFF When set to off by a controller

· AUT When in control of DEC and closed (on)

· TRP When in control of the DEC and tripped (off)

6.4.2 LBL

This writes a label to the responder, for use by the controller. The label may be up to 32 ASCII characters, with any reserved characters escaped as detailed on section 6.3

Response to this will echo the label back.

6.5.1 STS

This is used to return the current status of the DEC, arguments for this PID are:

· ALL Requests all information in one packet.

· SEN Requests only dynamic sensor information.

· CFG Requests configuration settings.

Responses parameter to this parameter include:

· ACV AC RMS Line Voltage

· ACC AC RMS Lamp current

· ATM Air temperature (Main) °C

· RHM Relative Humidity (Main) %

Blizzard G4 User Manual 36

· PCT PCB temperature °C

· HRL Lamp hours

· RLY Relay Status (OFF | AUT | TRP)

6.5.2 LBL

This is used to retrieve the responder’s label.
