How to Use This Manual

The SureFlow

Operation and Service Manual is divided into two parts. Part One describes how

the SureFlow unit functions and how to interface with the device. This section should be read by users, facilities staff, and anyone who requires a basic understanding of how the SureFlow controller operates.

Part Two describes the technical aspects of the product which includes operation, calibration,

configuration, and maintenance. Part Two should be read by personnel programming or maintaining the unit. TSI recommends thoroughly reading this manual before changing any software items.

NOTE: This operation and service manual assumes proper SureFlow controller installation.

Refer to the Installation Instructions to determine if the SureFlow controller has been properly installed. iv

PART ONE

User Basics

Part One provides a brief but thorough overview of the SureFlow product by maximizing information with minimal reading. These few pages explain the purpose (The Instrument), and the operation (Useful User Information, Digital Interface Module, Alarms) of the unit. Technical product information is available in Part Two of the manual. The manual focuses on laboratory spaces; however, the information is accurate for any room pressure application.

The Instrument

The SureFlow Adaptive Offset Controller (AOC) maintains laboratory pressure and air balance.

The AOC measures and controls all air flow into and out of the laboratory and measures the pressure differential. Proper laboratory pressure differential provides safety by controlling airborne contaminants that can adversely affect workers in the laboratory, people in the laboratory vicinity, and experiments. For example, laboratories with fume hoods have negative room pressure (air flowing into the room) to minimize exposure to people outside the laboratory.

The fume hood is the first level of containment and the laboratory space is the second level of containment.

Room pressure, or pressure differential, is created when one space (hallway) is at a different pressure than an adjoining space (laboratory). The Adaptive Offset Controller (AOC) creates a pressure differential by modulating supply air into and exhaust air out of the laboratory (hallway space is a constant volume system). The theory is that if more air is exhausted out than is supplied, the laboratory will be negative compared to the hallway. A set offset may not maintain an adequate pressure differential under all conditions. The AOC compensates for the unknown pressure differential by mounting a pressure differential sensor between the hallway and laboratory that confirms correct pressure differential is being maintained. If pressure is not being maintained, the AOC modulates the supply or exhaust air until pressure is maintained.

Positive Negative

Figure 1: Room Pressure

Negative room pressure is present when air flows from a hallway into the laboratory. If air flows from the laboratory into the hallway, the room is under positive pressure. Figure 1 gives a graphic example of positive and negative room pressure.

1

An example of negative pressure is a bathroom with an exhaust fan. When the fan is turned on, air is exhausted out of the bathroom creating a slight negative pressure when compared to the hallway. This pressure differential forces air to flow from the hallway into the bathroom.

The SureFlow device informs the laboratory users when the laboratory is under proper pressure, and provides alarms when the room pressure is inadequate. If the room pressure is in the safe range, a green light is on. If the pressure is inadequate, a red alarm light and audible alarm turn on.

The SureFlow controller consists of three pieces: pressure sensor, Digital Interface Module

(DIM), and Adaptive Offset Controller (AOC). The components are typically located as follows; pressure sensor above the laboratory entrance, DIM is mounted close to laboratory entrance, and the AOC in the ceiling space near the laboratory entrance. The pressure sensor continuously measures the room pressure and provides room pressure information to the DIM and AOC. The

DIM continuously reports the room pressure and activates the alarms when necessary. The AOC controls the supply and exhaust dampers to maintain the pressure differential. The AOC is a closed loop controller that is continuously measuring, reporting, and controlling room pressure.

Useful User Information

The DIM has a green light and red light to indicate room pressure status. The green light is on when the room has proper room pressure. The red light comes on when an alarm condition exists.

Sliding the door panel to the right reveals a digital display and keypad (Figure 2). The display shows detailed information about room pressure, alarms, etc. The keypad allows you to test the device, put the device into emergency mode, and program or change the device parameters.

Figure 2: Digital Interface Module (DIM)

SUREFLOW controller has two levels of user information:

1. SureFlow controller has a red light and green light to provide continuous information on room pressure status.

2. SureFlow controller has a hidden operator panel providing detailed room status information, self-testing capabilities, and access to the software programming functions.

NOTE: The unit provides continuous room pressure status through the red and green light. The operator panel is normally closed unless further information on room pressure status is needed, or software programming is required.

2 Part One

Operator Panel

The DIM in Figure 3 shows the location of the digital display, keypad and lights. An explanation of the operator panel follows the figure.

Figure 3: SUREFLOW Operator Panel

–Open

Green / Red Light

The green light is on when all the conditions for proper room pressure are adequate. This light indicates the laboratory is operating safely. If any of the room pressure conditions cannot be satisfied, the green light turns off and the red alarm light turns on.

Operator Panel

A cover hides the operator panel. Sliding the door panel to the right exposes the operator panel

(Figure 2).

Digital Display

The alphanumeric digital display is a two-line display that indicates actual room pressure (positive or negative), alarm status, menu options, and error messages. In normal operation (green light is on), the display indicates information about room pressure. If an alarm condition occurs, the display will change from

STANDARD STANDARD

NORMAL to read ALARM = *

* will state type of alarm; low pressure, high pressure, flow

When programming the unit, the display will change and now show menus, menu items, and current value of the item, depending on the specific programming function being performed.

NOTE: The AOC system will control room pressure without a pressure sensor installed.

However, verification that room pressure is being maintained is not possible. The display will not indicate room pressure or room pressure status when no pressure sensor is installed. The alarms can be programmed to indicate when low supply or exhaust flow is present.

User Basics 3

Keypad

The keypad has six keys. The gray keys with black letters are user information keys. In normal operation these keys are active. Additionally, the red emergency key is active. The gray keys with blue characters are used to program the unit. A thorough description of each key is given on the next two pages.

User Keys - Gray with Black Letters

The four keys with black letters provide you information without changing the operation or the function of the unit.

TEST Key

The TEST key initiates an instrument self-test. Pressing the TEST key activates a scrolling sequence on the display that shows the product model number, software version, and all set point and alarm values. The unit then performs a self-test that tests the display, indicator lights, audible alarm, and internal electronics to ensure they are operating properly. If a problem with the unit exists, DATA ERROR will be displayed. You should have qualified personnel determine the problem with the unit.

RESET Key

The RESET key performs three functions. 1) Resets the alarm light, alarm contacts, and audible alarm when in a latched or non-automatic reset mode. The DIM must return to the safe or normal range before the RESET key will operate. 2) Resets the emergency

function after the emergency key has been pressed (see EMERGENCY key). 3) Clears

any displayed error messages.

MUTE Key

The MUTE key temporarily silences the audible alarm. The time the alarm is temporarily

silenced is programmable by you (see MUTE TIMEOUT ). When the mute period ends,

the audible alarm turns back on if the alarm condition is still present.

NOTE: You can program the audible alarm to be permanently turned off (see

AUDIBLE ALM ).

AUX Key

The AUX key is active only in specialty applications and is not used on the standard

SureFlow controller. If the AUX key is used, a separate manual supplement will explain the AUX key function.

Programming Keys - Gray with Blue Characters

The four keys with blue print are used to program or configure the unit to fit a particular application.

WARNING: Pressing these keys will change how the unit functions, so please thoroughly review the manual before changing menu items.

MENU Key

The MENU key performs three functions. 1) Provides access to the menus when in the normal operating mode. 2) When the unit is being programmed, the MENU key acts as an escape key to remove you from an item or menu, without saving data. 3) Returns the

unit to the normal operating mode. The MENU key is further described in the Software

Programming section of this manual.

4 Part One

SELECT Key

The SELECT key performs three functions. 1) Provides access to specific menus.

2) Provides access to menu items. 3) Saves data. Pressing the key when finished with a menu item will save the data and exit you out of the menu item.

/Keys

The / keys are used to scroll through the menus, menu items, and through the range of item values that can be selected. Depending on the item type the values may be numerical, specific properties (on/off), or a bar graph.

Emergency Key - Red with Black Letters

EMERGENCY Key

The red EMERGENCY key puts the controller into emergency mode. If the room is under negative room pressure control, the emergency mode will maximize the negative pressure. Conversely, if the room is under positive room pressure control, the emergency mode will maximize the positive pressure.

Pressing the EMERGENCY key will cause the display to flash ”EMERGENCY”, the red alarm light to flash on and off and the audible alarm to beep intermittently. To return to control mode press the EMERGENCY or RESET key.

Alarms

SureFlow controller has visual (red light) and audible alarms to inform you of changing conditions. The alarm levels (set points) are determined by administrative personnel, Industrial

Hygienists, or the facilities group depending on the organization.

The alarms, audible and visual, will activate whenever the preset alarm level is reached.

Depending on the SureFlow controller items installed, programmed alarms will activate when room pressure is low or inadequate, when room pressure is high or too great, or when the supply or general exhaust air flow is insufficient. When the laboratory is operating safely, no alarms will sound.

Example: The low alarm is programmed to activate when the room pressure reaches -0.001 inches H

2

O. When the room pressure drops below -0.001 inches H

2

O (gets closer to zero), the audible and visual alarms activate. The alarms turn off (when set to unlatched) when the unit returns to the safe range which is defined as negative pressure greater than -0.001 inches H

2

O.

Visual Alarm Operation

The red light on the front of the unit indicates an alarm condition. The red light is on for all alarm conditions, low alarms, high alarms, and emergency. The light is on continuously in a low or high alarm condition and flashes in an emergency condition.

User Basics 5

Audible Alarm Operation- EMERGENCY key

When the EMERGENCY key is pressed, the audible alarm beeps intermittently until the

EMERGENCY or RESET key is pressed terminating the emergency alarm. The emergency alarm cannot be silenced by pressing the MUTE key.

Audible Alarms - All Except Emergency

The audible alarm is continuously on in all low and high alarm conditions. The audible alarm can be temporarily silenced by pressing the MUTE key. The alarm will be silent for a period of time

(see MUTE TIMEOUT to program time period). When the time out period ends, the audible alarm

turns back on if the alarm condition is still present.

You can program the audible alarm to be permanently turned off (see AUDIBLE ALM ). The red

alarm light will still turn on in alarm conditions when audible alarm is turned off.

The audible and visual alarms can be programmed to either automatically turn off when the unit

returns to the safe range or to stay in alarm until the RESET key is pressed (See ALARM

RESET ).

PART TWO

Technical Section

The AOC is ready to use after being properly installed. The pressure sensor is factory calibrated prior to shipping and should not need adjustment. The flow stations must be calibrated prior to using them. The

Digital Interface Module (DIM) is programmed with a default configuration that can be easily modified to fit your application.

The Technical section is separated into five parts that cover all aspects of the unit. Each section is written as independently as possible to minimize flipping back and forth through the manual for an answer.

The Software Programming section explains the programming keys on the DIM. In addition, the

programming sequence is described, which is the same regardless of the menu item being changed. At the end of this section is an example of how to program the DIM.

The Menu and Menu Item section lists all of the software items available to program and change. The

items are grouped by menu which means all set points are in one menu, alarm items in another, etc. The menu items and all related information is listed in table format and includes menu item name, description of menu item, range of programmable values, and how the unit shipped from the factory (default values).

The Setup / Checkout section; explains the AOC controller theory of operation, lists the menu items that

need to be programmed for the system to operate, provides a programming example, and provides information to confirm system is operating correctly.

The Calibration section describes the required technique to compare the pressure sensor reading to a

thermal anemometer, and how to adjust the zero and span to obtain an accurate calibration. This section also describes how to zero a TSI flow station transducer.

The Maintenance and Repair Part section covers all routine maintenance of equipment, along with a list

of repair parts.

Software Programming

Programming the SureFlow controller is quick and easy if the programming keys are understood and the proper keystroke procedure is followed. The programming keys are defined first, followed by the required keystroke procedure. At the end of this section is a programming example.

NOTE: The unit is always operating while programming unit (except when checking the control outputs).

When a menu item value is changed, the new value takes effect immediately after saving the change.

NOTE: This section covers programming the instrument through the keypad and display. If programming through RS-

485 communications, use the host computer’s procedure. The changes take place immediately upon “saving data.”

ITEM DESCRIPTION

The SET POINT item sets the pressure control set point.

The SureFlow controller will maintain this set point, negative or positive, under normal operating conditions.

Pressure differential is not maintained by direct pressure control; i.e., modulating dampers in response to pressure changes. The pressure signal is an AOC input that is used to calculate the required air flow offset value. The calculated offset value changes the supply (or exhaust) flow volume which changes the pressure differential. When the calculated offset value is between the MIN OFFSET and MAX OFFSET, room pressure control can be maintained. If the offset required to maintain pressure is less than the MIN OFFSET or greater than MAX OFFSET, pressure control will not be maintained.

The REM SET POINT item sets an alternate control set point. The SureFlow controller will maintain the room pressure at the alternate set point when this item is enabled.

This item is enabled when the REMOTE SWT contact closure, pins 3 and 4, is closed, or the RS 485 communications sends a command.

NOTE: The REM SET POINT disables the ALARM

DELAY.

ITEM DESCRIPTION

The VENT MIN SET item sets the ventilation supply airflow set point. This item provides a minimum supply air flow to meet the ventilation requirement, by preventing the supply flow from going below the preset minimum flow.

The controller will not allow the supply air damper to be closed further than the VENT MIN SET set point. If room pressure is not maintained at minimum supply flow, the general exhaust damper modulates open until pressure set point is reached (provided offset is between MIN OFFSET and MAX OFFSET).

The COOLING FLOW item sets the space cooling supply airflow set point (CFM). This item defines a supply air flow intended to meet the space’s cooling requirements by allowing the supply flow to increase, gradually, to the

COOLING FLOW set point, from a minimum ventilation rate, when the space temperature is too warm..

If room pressure is not maintained, the general exhaust damper modulates open until pressure set point is reached

(provided offset is between MIN OFFSET and MAX

OFFSET).

WIRING: This item requires a 1000

platinum RTD temperature sensor to be wired to the

TEMPERATURE input (AOC pins 29 and 30).

The temperature sensor toggles the AOC between VENT MIN SET and COOLING FLOW.

ITEM DESCRIPTION

The UNOCCUPY SET item sets a minimum supply flow set point when the laboratory is unoccupied (requires fewer air changes per hour). When UNOCCUPY SET is active, the

VENT MIN SET and COOLING FLOW set points are turned off, since only one minimum supply set point can be enabled.

The controller will not allow the supply air damper to be closed further than the UNOCCUPY SET set point. If room pressure is not maintained at minimum supply flow, the general exhaust damper modulates open until pressure set point is reached (provided required offset is between MIN

OFFSET and MAX OFFSET).

WIRING: This item is enabled when the OCCUPANT SWT contact closure is closed (pins 11 and 12, DIM), or the RS 485 communications sends a command. When switch input is open VENT MIN

ITEM DESCRIPTION

The ALARM RESET item selects how the alarms terminate after the unit returns to control set point (pressure or flow).

UNLATCHED (alarm follow) automatically resets the alarms when the unit reaches control set point. LATCHED requires the staff to press the RESET key after the unit returns to control set point. The ALARM RESET affects the audible alarm, visual alarm, and relay output, which means all are latched or unlatched.

The AUDIBLE ALM item selects whether the audible alarm is turned ON or OFF. Selecting ON requires the staff to press the MUTE key to silence the audible alarm. Selecting

OFF permanently mutes all audible alarms, except when the EMERGENCY key is pressed.

The ALARM DELAY determines the length of time the alarm is delayed after an alarm condition has been detected. This delay affects the visual alarm, audible alarm, and relay outputs. An ALARM DELAY prevents nuisance alarms from people entering and leaving the laboratory.

ALARM CONSTRAINTS

There are a number of constraints built into the software that prevent users from programming conflicting alarm information. These are as follows:

1. The AOC does not allow the pressure alarms to be programmed within 20 ft/min (0.00028 in. H

2

O at 0.001 in. H

2

O) of the control set point.

Example: The control SET POINT is set at -0.001 in. H

2

O. The LOW ALARM set point cannot be set higher than -0.00072 in. H

2

O.

Conversely, the HIGH ALARM set point cannot be set lower than -0.00128 in. H

2

O.

2. The minimum flow alarm: MIN SUP ALM must be programmed to be at least 50 CFM less than the minimum flow set point.

3. The pressure alarms: LOW ALARM, HIGH ALARM can be programmed for positive or negative pressure. However, both the low and high alarm must be set either positive or negative. The AOC does not allow one positive alarm and one negative alarm.

4. Alarms do not terminate until the pressure or flow slightly exceeds alarm set point.

5. The ALARM RESET item selects how the alarms will terminate when controller returns to the safe range. The pressure and flow alarms all terminate the same; they are either latched or unlatched. If unlatched is selected, the alarms automatically turn off when the value slightly exceeds set point. If latched is selected, the alarms will not terminate until the controller returns to set point and the RESET key is pressed.

6. There is a programmable ALARM DELAY that determines how long to delay before activating the alarms. This delay affects all pressure, remote and flow alarms.

7. The MUTE TIMEOUT item sets the length of time the audible alarm is off for all pressure and flow alarms.

8. The display can only show one alarm message. Therefore, the controller has an alarm priority system, with the highest priority alarm being displayed. If multiple alarms exist, the lower priority alarms will not display until after the highest priority alarm has been eliminated. The alarm priority is as follows:

Pressure sensor - low alarm

Pressure sensor - high alarm

Low supply flow alarm

Low exhaust flow alarm

Data error

9. The low and high pressure alarms are absolute values. The chart below shows how the values must be programmed in order to operate correctly.

SENSITIVITY

ITEM DESCRIPTION

SENSITIVITY The SENSITIVITY item is used to select the integral dead band. The integral dead band determines when the controller uses integral control (slow control), and when the controller enters PID control (fast control). When this item is selected, a bar graph will be shown on the display.

There are 10 bars total, with each one representing 50

CFM. Starting from the right side (+ sign), 10 bars displayed indicates no dead band so the controller is always in PID control mode. Each bar missing represents

±50 CFM of integral dead band. The less bars displayed, the larger the integral dead band. For example, with 8 bars displayed (2 bars missing) and an offset of 500 CFM, the integral dead band is between 400 and 600 CFM.

When the measured offset is within this range, integral or slow control is used. However, when the flow offset falls below 400 CFM or rises above 600 CFM, PID control is enabled until the unit returns within the dead band.

The SENSITIVITY item has a unique feature that when zero bars are displayed, the unit never goes into PID control. The control output is always a slow control signal.

WARNING: When SENSITIVITY is set for 10 bars, the system is always in PID control, which will probably cause an unstable system. It is recommended that SENSITIVITY be set at

9 bars or less.

ADDRESS must be entered into the unit.

There is no priority between the RS-485 and keypad. The most recent signal by either RS-485 or keypad will initiate a change.

RS-485 communications allows you access to all menu items except calibration and control items. The RS-485 network can initiate a change at any time.

When the SERVICE PIN option is selected, the Model

8682 sends a broadcast message containing its Neuron

ID and program ID. This is required to install the Model

8682 on the LonWorks network, or to reinstall the Model

8682 after using the GO UNCONFIGURED command.

Selecting the GO UNCONFIGURED option resets the

Model 8682’s authentication key. This is required in the event a foreign network tool inadvertently acquires a

Model 8682 and installs it with network management authentication.

The Model 8682’s owner will then be unable to reclaim the Model 8682 over the network.

Setup / Checkout

The AOC is easy to program and setup. This section covers the theory of operation, required software programming, a programming example, and how to verify (checkout) that the components are functioning correctly. The AOC uses a unique control sequence that combines flow and pressure differential measurements to maintain air balance and laboratory pressure, while interfacing with a temperature sensor to maintain laboratory temperature. The overall AOC control sequence seems quite complicated initially, but the

Theory of Operation section breaks the sequence into sub-sequences which simplifies

the total system.

Theory of Operation

The AOC control system requires the following measurement inputs to function correctly:

General exhaust flow(s) measured with a flow station(s) (if general exhaust is installed).

Fume hood exhaust flow measured with a flow station (total hood(s) flow is required).

Supply air flow(s) measured with a flow station(s).

Temperature measured with a thermostat (if temperature is incorporated into sequence).

Pressure differential with a TSI pressure sensor (if pressure is incorporated into sequence).

Laboratory air balance

Laboratory air balance is maintained by measuring the total fume hood exhaust (or other exhaust), subtracting an offset flow from the fume hood total, and then setting the supply air damper(s) to maintain the offset between supply air and fume hood exhaust. The general exhaust damper is normally closed, except when room pressure cannot be maintained. This may occur when the fume hood sashes are all down and the supply air is at a minimum position. The general exhaust damper opens to maintain the required offset and pressure differential.

Pressure control

The pressure differential signal is sent to the AOC (assumption: laboratory is under negative pressure). If pressure is at set point, the control algorithm does nothing. If pressure is not at set point, the offset value is changed until pressure is maintained, or the minimum or maximum offset value is reached. If the offset value: increases, the supply air is reduced until one of three events occur:

Pressure set point is reached. The AOC maintains the new offset.

The offset range is exceeded. The offset will be at maximum attempting to reach pressure set point. An alarm will trigger to inform you pressure differential is not being maintained.

Supply air minimum is reached. The general exhaust begins to open (was closed) to maintain pressure differential. decreases, the supply air increases until one of three events occur:

Pressure set point is reached. The AOC maintains the new offset.

The offset range is exceeded. The offset will be at minimum attempting to reach pressure set point. An alarm will trigger to inform you pressure differential is not being maintained.

Technical Section

55

Supply air maximum is reached. The alarm will trigger to inform you pressure differential is not being maintained.

NOTE: The pressure differential is a slow secondary control loop. The system initially starts with a calculated offset value and then slowly adjusts the offset value to maintain pressure differential.

Temperature control

The Model 8682 receives a temperature input from a temperature sensor (1000

Platinum RTD). The Model 8682 controller maintains temperature control by:

(1) Controlling supply and general exhaust for ventilation and cooling

(2) Controlling the reheat coil for heating

The Model 8682 has three supply flow minimum set points. The ventilation set point

(VENT MIN SET) is the minimum flow volume required to meet ventilation needs of the laboratory (ACPH). The temperature supply set point (COOLING FLOW) is the theoretical minimum flow required to meet cooling flow needs of the laboratory. The unoccupied set point (UNOCC SETP) is the minimum flow required when the lab is not occupied. All of these set points are configurable. If the Model 8682 is in the Unoccupied

Mode, the controller will control the supply air flow to the UNOCCUPY SET ventilation rate, the supply flow will not be modulated for space cooling; space temperature control will be maintained by modulating the reheat coil.

The Model 8682 continuously compares the temperature set point to the actual space temperature. If set point is being maintained, no changes are made. If set point is not being maintained, and the space temperature is rising, the controller will first modulate the reheat valve closed. Once the reheat valve is fully closed the controller will begin a 3minute time period. If, after the 3-minute time period the reheat valve is still fully closed, the Model 8682 will then gradually begin increasing the supply volume by 1 CFM/second up to the COOLING FLOW set point.

The controller, when controlling supply flow for cooling, will not increase the supply flow above the COOLING FLOW ventilation rate. If the space temperature decreases below the set point, the controller will first reduce the supply volume. Once the supply volume reaches its minimum (VENT MIN SET), the controller will then start a 3-minute time period. If, after 3 minutes the supply flow is still at the VENT MIN SET flow rate, the controller will begin modulating the reheat coil open to meet the heating demand.

If the general exhaust is in the closed position and fume hood loads require additional replacement air, the Model 8682 will override ventilation or temperature set points to modulate supply for pressurization control. Temperature will then be controlled by the reheat valve in this sequence.

The control output items in the DIAGNOSTICS menu will show a percentage value. If

control direction for a given output is set to DIRECT, the diagnostic value will be percent

OPEN. If control direction for a given output is set to REVERSE, the diagnostic value will be percent CLOSED.

NOTE: The greatest flow requirement dominates the supply flow. If hood replacement air exceeds the ventilation or temperature flow minimums, the replacement air requirement is maintained (minimums are ignored).

56

Part Two

In summary, understanding the AOC control algorithm is the key to getting the system functioning correctly. The AOC control algorithm functions as follows:

SUPPLY AIR =

Supply air is at minimum position; unless additional replacement air is required (fume hood or general exhaust).

GENERAL

EXHAUST +

General exhaust is closed or at minimum position; except when supply air is at minimum position and pressure control cannot be maintained.

Sequence Of Operation

Beginning scenario: Laboratory is maintaining pressure control; -

0.001 “ H

2

O.

Temperature requirement is satisfied.

Fume hood sashes are down, total hood exhaust is 1,000 CFM.

Supply air is 900 CFM (maintain ventilation).

General exhaust 200 CFM (calculated from below).

Fume hoods + General exhaust - Offset = Supply air

1,000 + ?

– 300 = 900

Two fume hoods are opened so that the chemists can load experiments into the hood.

The face velocity (100 ft/min) is maintained by modulating the fume hood dampers. The total fume hood flow is now 2,500 CFM (1,000 + 1,000 + 250 + 250).

Fume hoods + General exhaust - Offset = Supply air

2,500 + 0

– 300 = 2,200

The supply air volume changes to 2,200 CFM (2,500 CFM hood exhaust

–300 CFM offset). The general exhaust is closed since no additional exhaust is needed for temperature or ventilation. However, the Digital Interface Module indicates the laboratory is now

–0.0002 in. H

2

O (not negative enough). The AOC algorithm slowly changes the offset until pressure control is maintained. In this case the offset changes to 400 CFM, which decreases the supply volume by 100 CFM. The additional offset maintains the pressure differential at

–0.001 in. H

2

O (set point).

Fume hoods + General exhaust - Offset = Supply air

2,500 + 0

– 400 = 2,100

The hoods are shut after the experiments are loaded so the initial conditions prevail.

Fume hoods + General exhaust - Offset = Supply air

1,000 + 200

– 300 = 900

An oven is turned on and the laboratory is getting warm. The temperature sensor sends the AOC a signal to switch to temperature minimum ventilation (COOLING FLOW). This increases the supply air to 1,200 CFM. The general exhaust air must also increase

(damper opens) to maintain flow balance.

Fume hoods + General exhaust - Offset = Supply air

1,000 + 500

– 300 = 1,200

Three fume hoods are opened so the fume hood flow is now 3,250 CFM. In order to maintain air balance the general exhaust and supply air change to:

Fume hoods + General exhaust - Offset = Supply air

3,250 + 0

– 300 = 2,950

The control loop continuously keeps the room balance, room pressure, and temperature control satisfied.

Part Two

Checkout

The AOC controller should have the individual components checked prior to attempting control of the laboratory. The checkout procedure outlined below will confirm all hardware is performing correctly. The checkout procedure is not difficult and will catch any hardware problems. The steps are as follows:

Confirm wiring is correct

The most common problem with installed hardware equipment is incorrect wiring. This problem usually exists on initial installation, or when modifications to the system takes place. The wiring should be very closely checked to verify it exactly matches the wiring diagram. Polarity must be observed for system to operate correctly. The TSI provided cables are all color coded to ensure proper wiring. A wiring diagram is located in

Appendix C of this manual. Wiring associated with non TSI components should be

closely checked for correct installation.

Confirming physical installation is correct

All of the hardware components need to be installed properly. Review the installation instructions and verify components are installed properly at the correct location. This can be easily confirmed when checking the wiring.

Verifying individual components

Verifying all TSI components are operating correctly requires following a simple procedure. The fastest procedure involves first checking the DIM and then confirming all component parts are functioning.

NOTE: These checks require power to the AOC and all components.

CHECK - DIM

Press TEST key to verify Digital Interface Module (DIM) electronics are functioning correctly. At the end of the self test, the display will show SELF TEST - PASSED if

DIM electronics are good. If unit displays DATA ERROR at the end of the test, the electronics may be corrupted. Check all software items to determine cause of

DATA ERROR.

If SELF TEST - PASSED was displayed proceed to check individual components.

Enter Diagnostics and Flow Check Menu to check the following:

Control output - supply (if controlling supply air).

Control output - exhaust (if controlling exhaust air).

Sensor input (if pressure sensor is installed).

Sensor status (if pressure sensor installed).

Temperature input.

General exhaust flow station(s).

Supply flow station(s).

Fume hood flow station(s).

The menu items are explained in detail in the Menu and Menu Items section of the

manual, so their function is not reviewed here. If the AOC system passes each of the checks, the mechanical piece parts are all functioning correctly.

Technical Section

61

CHECK - Control output - supply

Enter CONTROL SUP menu item in diagnostics menu. A number between 0 and

100% will be displayed. Press the / keys until either 0 or 100% shows on the display. Note the position of the supply air control damper. If display reads 0%, press the  key until 100% is shown on display. If display reads 100%, press  key until 0% is shown on display. Note the position of the supply air damper. The damper should have rotated either 45 or 90 degrees depending on actuator installed.

CHECK - Control output - exhaust

Enter CONTROL EXH menu item in diagnostics menu. A number between 0 and

100% will be displayed. Press the / keys until either 0 or 100% shows on the display. Note the position of the general exhaust control damper. If display reads

0%, press the  key until 100% is shown on display. If display reads 100%, press

 key until 0% is shown on display. Note the position of the general exhaust damper. The damper should have rotated either 45 or 90 degrees depending on actuator installed.

CHECK - Sensor input

Enter SENSOR INPUT menu item in diagnostics menu. A voltage between 0 and

10 volts DC will be displayed. It is not important what the exact voltage is to pass this test. Tape over the pressure sensor (slide pressure sensor door open) and voltage should read approximately 5 volts (zero pressure). Remove tape and blow on sensor. Displayed value should change. If voltage changes, the sensor is functioning correctly. If voltage does not change, proceed to CHECK - Sensor status.

CHECK - Sensor status

Enter SENSOR STAT menu item in diagnostics menu. If NORMAL is displayed, the unit passes test. If an error message is displayed, go to diagnostics menu section of the manual, SENSOR STAT menu item for explanation of error message.

CHECK

– Temperature sensor input

Enter TEMP INPUT menu item in diagnostics menu. A temperature value will be displayed. The exact temperature displayed is not important as long as the temperature changes when space temperature changes.

CHECK - Flow station

The Flow Check menu lists all the flow stations that can be installed. Check each flow station menu item that has a flow station attached. Enter ___ FLOW IN menu item and the actual flow will be displayed. If the flow is correct, no changes need to be made. If flow is incorrect, recalibrate until actual flow matches flow station reading.

If unit passed all checks, the mechanical components are physically working.

62

Part Two

Calibration

The calibration section explains how to calibrate and set the elevation for the AOC pressure sensor and how to calibrate a flow station.

NOTE: The pressure sensor is factory calibrated and normally does not need to be adjusted. However, inaccurate readings may be detected if pressure sensor is not installed correctly, or problems with the sensor exist. Before calibrating, check that the sensor is installed correctly (usually only a problem on initial set

up). In addition, go into DIAGNOSTICS menu , SENSOR STAT item. If NORMAL

is displayed, calibration can be adjusted. If an error code is displayed, eliminate error code and then verify pressure sensor needs adjustment.

Adjusting the SureFlow pressure sensor calibration may be required to eliminate errors due to convection currents, HVAC configuration, or equipment used to make the measurement. TSI recommends always taking the comparison measurement in the exact same location (i.e., under the door, middle of door, edge of door, etc.). A thermal air velocity meter is needed to make the comparison measurement. Normally the velocity is checked at the crack under the doorway, or the door is opened 1” to allow alignment of the air velocity probe making the measurement. If the crack under the door is not large enough, use the 1” open door technique.

All pressure transducer based flow stations and 1 to 5 VDC linear flow stations must be zeroed upon initial system set up. Linear 0 to 10 VDC flow stations do not require a zero flow to be established.

Calibrating Pressure Sensor

Enter calibration menu (see Software Programming if not familiar with keystroke

procedure). Access code is turned on so enter access code. All menu items described below are found in CALIBRATION menu.

Elevation

The ELEVATION item eliminates pressure sensor error due to elevation of

building. (See ELEVATION

item in Menu and Menu items section for further

information).

Enter the ELEVATION menu item. Scroll through the elevation list and select the one closest to the building’s elevation.

Press the SELECT key to save the data and exit back to the calibration menu.

Sensor span

WARNING: The span can only be adjusted in the same pressure direction.

Adjusting span cannot cross zero pressure. Example: If unit displays +0.0001 and actual pressure is -0.0001, do not make any adjustments. Manually change the air balance, close or open dampers, or open door slightly to get both unit and actual pressure to read in same direction (both read positive or negative). This problem can only occur at very low pressures so slightly changing the balance should eliminate the problem.

Perform a smoke test to determine pressure direction.

Select SENSOR SPAN item.

Position thermal air velocity meter in door opening to obtain velocity reading.

Press / keys until pressure direction (±) and sensor span match thermal air velocity meter and smoke test.

Press SELECT key to save sensor span.

Press SELECT key to save data.

then

Raise the fume hood sash above the low flow calibration, or to its sash stop

(approximately 18”). Select the corresponding HD# HIGH CAL menu item.

The DIM will display two airflow values. Press the  or  keys to adjust the value displayed on the right to match the actual airflow, which is obtained with a duct traverse measurement or by calculating the volumetric flow. Calculated volumetric flow can be determined by multiplying on the current sash open area by the displayed face velocity.

Press SELECT key to save data.

NOTE: Insert number of flow calibration you are performing.

A low flow calibration must be performed before its associated high flow calibration is performed. For example, in a laboratory that has two separate supply flows, SP1 LOW CAL must be completed before SP1

HIGH CAL. SP2 LOW CAL must be completed before SP2 HIGH CAL.

It is acceptable to complete all low flow calibrations before completing their associated high flow calibrations. To continue with the previous example: SP1 LOW CAL and SP2 LOW CAL could both be completed before completing SP1 HIGH CAL and SP2 HIGH CAL.

Fume hood face velocity calibration must be completed before beginning fume hood flow calibration.

Maintenance and Repair Parts

The Model 8682 SureFlow Room Pressure Controller requires minimal maintenance.

Periodic inspection of system components as well as an occasional pressure sensor cleaning are all that are needed to insure that the Model 8682 is operating properly.

System Component Inspection

It is recommended that the pressure sensor be periodically inspected for accumulation of contaminants. The frequency of these inspections is dependent upon the quality of the air being drawn across the sensor. Quite simply, if the air is dirty, the sensors will require more frequent inspection and cleaning.

Visually inspect the pressure sensor by sliding open the sensor housing door (Figure 9).

The air flow orifice should be free of obstructions. The small ceramic coated sensors protruding from the orifice wall should be white and free of accumulated debris.

Technical Section

67

Figure 9: Pressure Sensor Door Slid Open

Periodically inspect the other system components for proper performance and physical signs of excessive wear.

Pressure Sensor Cleaning

Accumulations of dust or dirt can be removed with a dry soft-bristled brush (such as an artist's brush). If necessary, water, alcohol, acetone, or trichlorethane may be used as a solvent to remove other contaminants.

Use extreme care when cleaning the velocity sensors. The ceramic sensor may break if excessive pressure is applied, if sensor is scraped to remove contaminants, or if the cleaning apparatus abruptly impacts the sensor.

WARNING: If you are using a liquid to clean the sensor, turn off power to the

Model 8682.

Do not use compressed air to clean the velocity sensors.

Do not attempt to scrape contaminants from the velocity sensors. The velocity sensors are quite durable; however, scraping may cause mechanical damage and possibly break the sensor. Mechanical damage due to scraping voids the pressure sensor warranty.

Flow Station Inspection/Cleaning

The flow station can be inspected by removing mounting screws and visually examining probe. Pressure based flow stations can be cleaned by blowing compressed air into the low and high pressure taps (flow station does not need to be removed from duct). Linear flow stations (thermal anemometer type) can be cleaned with a dry soft-bristled brush

(such as an artist's brush). If necessary, water, alcohol, acetone, or trichlorethane may be used as a solvent to remove other contaminants.

Troubleshooting Section

The SureFlow Room Pressure Controller is designed to be trouble free. However, installation problems or interaction with other HVAC components may cause system problems. The SureFlow system is easy to troubleshoot if an organized approach to evaluate the system is taken. Troubleshooting is broken down into hardware and software problems. Hardware problems deal with the physical installation of the device.

Hardware problems include wiring problems, incorrectly installed equipment, and addons or non-TSI equipment. Software problems include control problems, configuration problems, or interaction problems with the HVAC system.

The hardware test described in this section determines that all TSI mechanical components are functioning correctly. The hardware test requires the diagnostics menu

items to be accessed. If you are unfamiliar with the SureFlow menus, see Software

Programming for keystroke procedure. Troubleshooting the majority of problems is

usually quick if the hardware test is followed.

Software and hardware problems are covered in the troubleshooting chart. Pick the problem that most closely resembles your problem and review the possible symptoms and corrective action. Software or system performance problems can and are affected by the supply air system, exhaust air system, or physical configuration of the room.

Separating TSI system problems from the HVAC system can sometimes be difficult. TSI recommends confirming all hardware is operating correctly before troubleshooting software problems.

Technical Section

69

Hardware Test

Three tests need to be performed in order to determine all hardware is functioning correctly. The test are broken down into:

Confirming wiring is correct.

Confirming physical installation is correct.

Verifying mechanical components.

Confirming wiring is correct

The most common problem with installed hardware equipment is incorrect wiring. This problem usually exists on initial installation, or when modifications to the system take place. The wiring should be very closely checked to verify it exactly matches the wiring diagram. The TSI cables are all color coded to ensure proper wiring. A wiring diagram is

be closely checked for correct installation. If non TSI components are installed, consider disconnecting them for testing purposes.

Confirming physical installation is correct

All of the hardware components need to be installed properly. Review the installation instructions and verify components are installed properly at the correct location. This is easily done when the wiring is checked.

Verifying mechanical components

Verifying all TSI components are operating correctly requires following a simple procedure. The fastest procedure to confirm all equipment is operating is to first test the

DIM, and then go into the diagnostic menu to test each component.

NOTE: These tests require power to the units, so if unit has no power, refer to hardware troubleshooting chart to eliminate power problem.

OPEN is shown on display. If display read 100% OPEN press  key until 0%

OPEN is shown on display. Note the position of the general exhaust damper. The damper should have rotated either 45 or 90 degrees depending on actuator

installed. If not, see the hardware section

Control system is not controlling

.

TEST - Control output - temperature

Enter CONTROL TEMP menu item in diagnostics menu. A number between 0%

OPEN and 100% OPEN will be displayed. Press the / keys until either 0%

OPEN or 100% OPEN shows on the display. Note the position of the reheat valve.

If display reads 0% OPEN, press the  key until 100% OPEN is shown on display.

If display read 100% OPEN press  key until 0% OPEN is shown on display. Note the position of the reheat valve. The damper should have moved through its full

stroke. If not, see hardware section

Control system is not controlling

. Reheat

valves typically move slowly, so you may have to wait to see the full motion.

TEST - Sensor input

Enter SENSOR INPUT menu item in diagnostics menu. A voltage between 0 and

10 volts DC will be displayed. It is not important what the exact voltage is to pass this test. Tape over the pressure sensor (slide pressure sensor door open) and voltage should read approximately 5 volts (zero pressure). Remove tape and blow on sensor. Displayed value should change. If voltage changes, the unit passes. If voltage doesn’t change, proceed to TEST - Sensor status.

TEST - Sensor status

Enter SENSOR STAT menu item in diagnostics menu. If NORMAL is displayed, the unit passes test. If an error message is displayed, go to diagnostics menu section of the manual, SENSOR STAT menu item for explanation of error message.

Technical Section

71

TEST - Temp input

Enter TEMP INPUT menu item in diagnostics menu. A temperature will be displayed. The exact temperature displayed is not important as long as the temperature changes when the RTD signal changes.

If unit passed all tests, the mechanical components are physically working. If problems still exist, go to troubleshooting chart for additional information, on both hardware and software symptoms.

(continued on next page)

72

Part Two

Troubleshooting Chart

Symptom Possible Cause

Display is blank. Fuse is blown.

Control system is not controlling.

No power to DIM.

DIM is defective.

Incorrect wiring.

Supply and exhaust control wiring reversed.

No control output signal.

Corrective Action

Measure voltage at pins 33 and 34 on AOC.

The voltage should nominally be 24 to 30 VAC.

If correct voltage is measured, internal DIM fuse is probably blown. Unplug 14-pin connector from DIM for 2 minutes. The internal fuse will automatically reset. Plug unit back in and check display. If display is still blank, check all wiring, etc. If no problems are found, replace DIM.

If zero volts are measured, see

No power to DIM

.

Verify circuit breaker is on.

Verify transformer primary measures 110 VAC.

Verify transformer secondary measures 24 to 30 VAC.

Verify electric AOC panel is receiving 24 to 30 volts between pins 33 and 34.

If proper voltage is found between pins 1 and 2 of the DIM, all wiring has been checked, fuses have been reset, and screen is still blank, the DIM is probably defective. Replace DIM.

Verify correct wiring (see wiring diagram, Appendix C ). DIM and

AOC must be wired exactly as shown.

Verify supply control wiring (pins 44 and 45) goes to supply damper and exhaust control wiring (pins 46 and 47) goes to general exhaust damper.

Go into DIAGNOSTICS menu, CONTROL SUP or CONTROL

EXH item. A number between 0% OPEN and 100% OPEN will be displayed. Pressing the  key increases the number.

Pressing the  key decreases the number. To check the supply control output, measure the DC voltage between pins 44 and 45 on the AOC panel. To check the general exhaust control output, measure the DC voltage between pins 46 and 47 on the AOC panel. Change the CONTROL value about 40%. The voltage output should change approximately 4 volts. Change the

CONTROL value to 59% OPEN. The voltage should read approximately 5 VDC.

If no change occurs, disconnect control wires on pins 44 and 45

(or 46 and 47) and repeat test. If AOC panel still fails to change voltage output, AOC panel is probably defective.

Technical Section 73

Symptom

Control system is not controlling.

(continued)

Possible Cause

Bad actuator or

E/P (damper doesn't move).

Defective variable frequency drive

(VFD).

Damper rotating opposite direction.

Corrective Action

Go into DIAGNOSTICS menu, CONTROL SUP or CONTROL

EXH item. A number between 0% OPEN and 100% OPEN will be displayed. Pressing the  key increases the number.

Pressing the  key decreases the number. Change the

CONTROL value to read 0% OPEN or 100% OPEN. Note damper position. Press an arrow key to change 0% OPEN to

100% OPEN or 100% OPEN to 0% OPEN. Note position of damper. Damper should have rotated 45 or 90 degrees depending on actuator system installed.

If damper rotated 45 or 90 degrees, actuator is installed and operating correctly. If damper did not rotate, check that:

Jumper is installed correctly on actuator or E/P (Appendix

C).

Damper is not physically stuck (screws, etc.).

Wiring is correct between actuators and controller. Check that voltage varies between 0 and 10 volts on pins 6 and 7

on electric actuator or E/P (see No control output signal ).

Electric actuator is not over torqued. The electric actuator has current limiting protection. If damper is physically stuck or actuator is over current, the actuator will shut down. To restart either kill power to actuator or move damper in opposite direction it was trying to rotate (CONTROL SUP or

CONTROL EXH menu item).

Perform test described in

Control system is not controlling

. If

CONTROL OUT is functioning, verify wiring to VFD by confirming CONTROL OUT voltage changes at VFD. If voltage changes, a problem with VFD exists. See VFD manual for further troubleshooting.

If damper is full open when it should be closed or full closed when it should be open, go into CONTROL menu CONTROL

SIG menu item. Change direct to reverse or reverse to direct to change control output direction. The control sig changes the direction of both the supply and exhaust damper. If only 1 damper rotates incorrectly, change the jumper on the E/P or electric actuator.

74 Part Two

Symptom

Control system is not controlling

(continued)

Sensor does not calibrate.

Possible Cause

Damper is full open or full closed, won’t move.

Sensor communications not working.

Corrective Action

Actuator jumper is missing or loose. Verify jumper is installed correctly.

Control wires are loose. Check wires and verify control output is

working (see

no control output signal

). If control output test

passes, verify damper is rotating correct direction (see

damper rotating opposite direction

). If damper is rotating correctly and

set point cannot be reached, DIM will fully rotate damper to get as close to set point as possible. Air balance needs to be adjusted.

Check SENSOR STAT item in diagnostics menu. If NORMAL is displayed, sensor is okay, if COMM ERROR is displayed, check wiring, pressure sensor address, and that DIP switch 1 & 2 are

ON (Figure 10).

Pressure sensor red LED is blinking

(Figure 8).

Figure 10: Pressure Sensor DIP Switch

Incorrect pressure sensor address.

Problem with sensor (slow uniform blink).

Communication

(fast burst of non-uniform blinking).

Red LED is constantly on.

Pressure sensor must have address of 1. Check pressure sensor DIP switches 5 & 6 and verify address 1 is correct

(7-12 must be OFF).

Check SENSOR STAT and confirm NORMAL is displayed. If

ERROR is displayed, correct error.

Unit is communicating with DIM. This is normal.

This is normal when no problems exist or when no communication is occurring.

Technical Section 75

Symptom

DIM always displays 0.200 inches H

2

O.

DIM does not respond to RS-

485 communications.

DIM displays opposite pressure signal.

Alarm relays don't work.

"DATA ERROR" flashing on display.

Actuator hunting.

Display indicates steady pressure.

Possible Cause

Incorrect pressure sensor output.

Network protocol is incorrect.

Incorrect network address.

Incompatible software.

Sensor direction is incorrect.

Alarms are turned off.

Incorrect wiring.

Relay may be defective.

DIM was hit by electrical disturbance.

Control system is unstable.

Corrective Action

Pressure sensor must be set for 0 to 10 volt output, not 4 to

20 mA. Check pressure sensor DIP switch 3 and make sure it is

OFF (see Figure 10).

Go into INTERFACE menu, NET PROTOCOL item. The protocol must match host system. Select correct interface.

The network address at the building automation system and at the DIM must match. The network address must be unique for each DIM.

Data sent to DIM may be in form that the SureFlow controller cannot recognize.

Pressure sensor must have DIP switch correctly set for proper sign display. Verify DIP switch 4 is ON when sensor is mounted in the laboratory (controlled space), and OFF when sensor is mounted in corridor (reference space). See Figure 8.

Press TEST key. The individual alarm set points will display. If all alarm set points are zero, alarm relay is not active, so relay will not be required to change state.

Check the wiring from SureFlow controller relay's output to the device that is connected to the relays.

Disconnect the DIM wiring from relay contact pins 13 and 14 for low alarm relay and pins 25 and 26 for high alarm relay. Go into

DIAGNOSTICS menu, LOW ALM REL or HIGH ALM REL.

Connect an ohmmeter to relay terminals to verify contact open

/ keys to manually trip the relay. If relay responds (contact opens and closes), the device connected is incompatible or defective. If relay doesn’t respond, relay is defective (may be caused by incompatible device).

Replace DIM.

All data may be lost or changed. Review all configuration parameters. DATA ERROR is removed by pressing the RESET key.

Go into CONTROL menu, SPEED item. Turn speed down until hunting is eliminated. If speed is too slow review CONTROL menu items and adjust accordingly to eliminate hunting.

76 Part Two

Symptom

Displayed pressure wildly fluctuating.

Temperature not controlling

Possible Cause

Control system is unstable.

Exhaust system unstable.

Supply or exhaust air is affecting the sensor.

Incorrect wiring.

No control output signal.

Bad actuator

(valve doesn't move).

Valve rotating opposite direction.

Corrective Action

Go into CONTROL menu, SPEED item, turn speed down until fluctuation is eliminated. If speed is too slow, review CONTROL menu items and adjust accordingly until performance is adequate.

Turn DIM to emergency. If pressure stabilizes, this is not the problem. Verify reference pressure is not fluctuating.

Check location of supply air diffusers and exhaust grilles. They should be as far from pressure sensor as is realistic, 6 feet preferred, 2-1/2 feet minimum. Supply diffuser terminal throw velocity must be less than 10 ft/min at the sensor. Relocate supply or exhaust as needed.

Verify correct wiring (see wiring diagram, Appendix C ). DIM and

AOC panel must be wired exactly as shown.

Go into DIAGNOSTICS menu, CONTROL SUP or CONTROL

EXH item. A number between 0% OPEN and 100% OPEN will be displayed. Pressing the  key increases the number.

Pressing the  key decreases the number. Measure the DC voltage between pins 44 and 45 (46 and 47 for exhaust) on the

AOC panel. Change the CONTROL value about 40%. The voltage output should change approximately 4 volts. Change the

CONTROL value to 60% OPEN. The voltage should read approximately 5 VDC.

If no change occurs, disconnect control wires on pins 25 and 26 and repeat test. If DIM still fails to change voltage output, DIM is probably defective.

Go into DIAGNOSTICS menu, CONTROL TEMP. A number between 0% OPEN and 100% OPEN will be displayed. Pressing the  key increases the number. Pressing the  key decreases the number. Change the CONTROL value to read 0%

OPEN or 100% OPEN. Note valve position. Press an arrow key to change 0% OPEN to 100% OPEN or 100% OPEN to 0%

OPEN. Note position of valve. Valve should have moved full stroke.

If Valve is full open when it should be closed or full closed when it should be open, go into DIAGNOSTICS menu, CONTROL

TEMP menu item. Change direct to reverse or reverse to direct to change control output direction.

Network Communications

Network communications are available on the Model 8682. The Model 8682 can communicate with a building management system through Modbus, N2 or LonWorks protocols. The Model 8682-BAC can communicate with a building management system through BACnet MSTP protocol. Please refer to the appropriate section below for more detailed information.

Modbus Communications

Modbus communications are installed in the Model 8682 adaptive offset room pressure controllers. This document provides the technical information needed to communicate between the host DDC system and the Model 8682 units. This document assumes the programmer is familiar with Modbus protocol. Further technical assistance is available from TSI if your question is related to TSI interfacing to a DDC system. If you need further information regarding Modbus programming in general, please contact:

Modicon Incorporated (a division of Schneider-Electric)

One High Street

North Andover, MA 01845

Phone (800) 468-5342

The Modbus protocol utilizes the RTU format for data transfer and Error Checking. Check the Modicon

Modbus Protocol Reference Guide (PI-Mbus-300) for more information on CRC generation and message structures.

The messages are sent at 9600 baud with 1 start bit, 8 data bits, and 2 stop bits. Do not use the parity bit.

The system is set up as a master slave network. The TSI units act as slaves and respond to messages when their correct address is polled.

Blocks of data can be written or read from each device. Using a block format will speed up the time for the data transfer. The size of the blocks is limited to 20 bytes. This means the maximum message length that can be transferred is 20 bytes. The typical response time of the device is around 0.05 seconds with a maximum of 0.1 seconds.

Unique to TSI

The list of variable addresses shown below skips some numbers in the sequence due to internal Model

8682 functions. This information is not useful to the DDC system and is therefore deleted. Skipping numbers in the sequence will not cause any communication problems.

All variables are outputted in English units: ft/min, CFM, or inches H

0. The room pressure control set points and alarms are stored in ft/min. The DDC system must convert the value to inches of water if that is desired. The equation is given below.

Modbus Variables

These variables can be read using Modbus command 03 Read Holding Registers. They can be written to using Modbus command 16 Preset Multiple Regs.

Many of these variables are the same “menu items” that are configured from the SureFlow keypad. The calibration and control items are not accessible from the DDC system. This is for safety reasons, since each room is individually setup for maximum performance.

Description of Variables

NPT - Network Point Type

Variables are defined as analog inputs, binary inputs, and analog outputs. Analog inputs are current control parameters and items that the controller is measuring. Binary inputs represent controller states.

Analog outputs are the programmable set points for the isolation room pressure controller and monitor.

These set points can be changed through the keypad or by overriding the current set point.

NPA - Network Point Address

Address of the desired point.

Change of Status (COS) - Room Pressure Analog Input

The 8682 has the ability to change control set points locally. The alarm set points need to be based on the controller’s control set point (AO #1). For example the set point could go from -0.002 in. H

2

O to

+0.001 in. H

2

O. If the COS alarm set points are not changed to accommodate, you could get low alarm or low warning messages when the unit is working correctly. If these alarm points are set outside of the negative and positive set point values, incorrect alarm messages can be prevented.

Override Analog Input Command

Analog Input values can be set using the override command. These values will be reset to the correct items when the Override is released. There is not a time-out on the override command.

Override Binary Input Command

Overriding a 1 to Emergency binary inputs enables that mode. To release the controller from emergency state, override a 0 to the Emergency input or press either the emergency or reset key. Releasing the override will return the controller to the Normal state.

The alarm and data error variables can be overridden, but this will not affect the controller. Overriding the low alarm variable will result in a change of status, but will not put the controller into low alarm mode. The local alarm modes can only be controlled locally. Only override these variables for diagnostic purposes and release them for normal operation.

Binary Input Data Error

Data Error binary inputs are used to indicate if something has gone wrong with the controller. Data Error indicates when some of the data stored on the device has been corrupted. The calibration and set point values should be checked on the controller.

Override Analog Output Command

The analog output variables can be overridden to change their values. The overridden value will be checked for validity. If invalid, the override command will be ignored and the value will not change. The override flag will not be set when the value is ignored. The override command will be cleared when the variable is reset in the menus. The variable will not reset with the release command.

8682 BACnet MS/TP Protocol Implementation Conformance Statement

Date: July 11, 2007

Vendor Name: TSI Inc.

Product Name: SureFlow Adaptive Offset Controller

Product Model Number: 8682-BAC

Applications Software Version: 1.0

Firmware Revision: 1.0

BACnet Protocol Revision: 2

Product Description:

TSI SureFlow Room Pressure Controls are designed to maintain more exhaust from a laboratory than is supplied to it. This negative air balance helps ensure that chemical vapors cannot diffuse outside the laboratory. The SureFlow Model 8682 also controls the temperature of the laboratory space by modulating reheat and the supply air volume. Optionally, a room pressure sensor can be connected to the SureFlow Model 8682 controller to correct long-term changes in the building dynamics. This model controller is capable of acting as a stand-alone device or as part of a building automation system via

BACnet MS/TP protocol.
