Sleep mode

This screen displays the setback function, which can be either


activated or deactivated by using the control panel or BMS. This
function consists of an automatic start-up of the standby unit if the
unit exceeds the following programmable limits for at least 30
seconds:

• Minimum temperature
• Maximum temperature
• Minimum relative humidity (only with optional humidity sensor)
• Maximum relative humidity (only with optional humidity sensor)
The setback function intervenes to control the room conditions—although with larger tolerances— even
if the whole system is in stand-by. Its intervention is independent and not influenced by signals from
remote systems. The intervention of the setback function is not considered an alarm situation.

Fan Cyclical Start: If set to Y, the fan runs in cycles, defined by the cycle time, to allow air from the room
to be drawn across the sensor.

When in setback mode, in the STATUS screen the symbol is displayed. Normal operating conditions
are reset automatically when the temperature values return to values set for [temp. min. + 2°C] + 3.6°F
and for [max. temp. - 2°C] - 3.6°F. A minimum of 15 minutes must pass before the unit exits the setback
mode. This enables stable conditions to be reached and avoids continuous switching on and off of the
fans.

When normal conditions return, the icon is displayed, alternating with other icons depending
on the previous status.

• The controller sends the chiller a request for water at a lower


temperature to allow dehumidification; this is done by instantly
activating digital output DO7.
• Temperature probe located on the CW inlet is read.
• When the value read reaches the “setpoint” as set on the screen, the valve is opened to the
maximum position on the following screen.
• If the “setpoint” is not reached, after 15 minutes an alarm is signalled (“CW too warm to
dehumidify”).
The temperature probe on the CW inlet is also used to control the “High CW temp.” alarm, when the
temperature exceeds the ‘High Temp.’ value set on the screen, signaling a possible fault on the chiller.

This screen is only available in the TC model and is used to enable the

Sensors settings

This screen adjusts control of the temperature sensors (“Room Temp.”, “Ext.
Air Temp.”, “Delivery Temp.”, “CW Closed And Hot Water”, “Room
Humidity”) in case a difference between the measured value of the sensor
and the effective value is detected when measured with a precision
instrument.

The adjustments can be done at intervals of 0.1 °C (.18°F) and the maximum
adjustment possible is between -9.9°C (-17.82°F) and +9.9 °C (+17.82°F).

The Read value is the measurement transmitted by the sensor already corrected. The adjustment
(“Adjustment”) is the quantity that needs to be added or subtracted to obtain the correct value when
measured with a precision instrument.

Alarm reset mode

This screen and the following are used to set the alarm resets to manual or
automatic.

Uniflair CW and DX Operation and Maintenance Manual 35


Memory operations

This screen manages the data contained in the microprocessor Flash


EPROM.

• Program Setup: Operation that is carried out the event of Flash


EPROM substitution (it can be useful if data is ‘damaged’ as it is
possible to clean the memory–including data relative to the unit
HARDWARE configuration, where all the setpoint values reset automatically).
After this operation it is necessary to re-configure the control and set the setpoint (when different from
those of the default).

Warning: When modified, a parameter of the configuration (and Flash EPROM


substitution) is necessary to empty the RAM memory by cutting off the power to the control
for a few seconds.

• Alarm Page Clear-Up: Historical alarm that cancels the last 100 saved alarm events
• Hardware Setup: Automatic identification of the devices connected to the control (this operation
is useful when an optional device must be connected to the board, when substituting a sensor or
when the temperature sensor display shows a “NC” reading).

EXV valve settings

This screen and the following are only displayed if the electronic expansion
valve is configured, and are used to access the valve operating settings.

Main settings

This screen enables choosing the electronic thermostatic different for the
two refrigerating circuits:

• Valve Type: Model of electronic valve used


• Refrigerant: Type of refrigerant gas used
This screen is used to set:

• Low Super Heat (SH) Protection: Activates the Low SH protection that
quickly acts by closing the valve in case of too low a SH temperature
(this avoids liquid returning to compressor)
• Maximum Operating Pressure (MOP) Protection: Activates the MOP
protection that moderately closes the EEV valve to limit the evaporator
temperature (this prevents the compressor from stopping from thermal protection)
• MOP Set: MOP activation set
• Low Operating Pressure (LOP) Protection: Activates the LOP protection that quickly acts by
opening the valve when the evaporator temperature is too low (this avoids the compressor
stopping from low pressure)
• LOP Set: LOP activation set

Updating the Program
The following systems can be used to update and acquire the firmware and the logs on the pCO
controllers:

• Winload
• SmartKey programming button

Winload

On all pCO system controllers the firmware can be updated using a PC. For this purpose, Schneider
Electric SAS provides the WinLoad32.exe program and a serial converter with USB-RS485 output to
connect to the pCO via the telephone connector. The special driver, supplied by Schneider Electric SAS,
must be installed on the PC.

The WinLoad32.exe program is installed together with the pCO Manager program. The installation
includes, in addition to WinLoad32.exe, the user manual and the driver for the USB-RS485 converter.

SmartKey

The SmartKey programming button can also be used to update the controller firmware, with the sole
exception of the Boot, which is not loaded by the SmartKey. In addition, the key can clone the contents
of a pCO and then copy these to another pCO that is identical to the first, via the telephone connector on
the terminals (the pLAN must be disconnected). The key can also copy the data logged by a series of
pCO devices to a PC.

On the PC, using the SmartKey Programmer, the key can be configured to run certain operations, such as
acquire logs, program applications, and program the BIOS.

The following are some images showing examples of downloading the program to the pCO control
board:

Inside the kit is a CD and a manual with step-by-step explanations of how to best use these accessories.
The program files will be sent by e-mail or CD, indicating the name of the application.

Alarms
Active alarms

By pressing the ALARM button, the alarm will be silenced and a description of the alarm will be
displayed. If the cause of the alarm has been eliminated, the last alarm message can be reset by pressing
the ALARM button for several seconds (the red light on the button will turn off immediately). If the
cause of the alarm has not been eliminated, the alarm buzzer will be activated again.

Alarm history

In order to be able to reconstruct the alarm history sequence, the


microprocessor holds 100 alarm events in its memory. All of the set alarms
can be read in series by entering the status screens by pressing the UP and
DOWN buttons and choosing the “Alarm History” option (if there is a clock
card). The time and date will also be recorded for each alarm event. The
alarms activated when the counter threshold is exceeded are not recorded
and therefore cannot be read.

Alarm events

All of the possible alarm messages that can be displayed on the user terminal are shown below. For
active alarms (not recorded in the alarm history sequence), some possible suggestions will appear for
solving the problem in the last two lines of the display:

• Incorrect Phase Sequence: The Scroll compressor must rotate in the


correct direction, otherwise there will be a loss of efficiency. In single
units with a three-phase power supply it is possible that the phase
sequence of the network forces a rotational direction that is different
to that which has been planned; in this case, as soon as the unit is
connected to the power supply, the microprocessor immediately
enters into an alarm state blocking any other type of operation.If this
occurs, disconnect the power supply and invert the two phases of the power supply.
• Power Supply Return Signal: When the power supply is restored
following a break in the power supply, the control records the screen,
shown here in the alarm history sequence.

42 Uniflair CW and DX Operation and Maintenance Manual

Local Network
Overview
• Several air conditioners installed in the same room connected in parallel in the same system can
be managed by connecting them to a local network.
• The number of connected units depends on the program managing the network, stored in the Flash
Eprom memory.
• Units in a network can be connected at a max. of 500 meters (1640 ft).
• All the units connected to the network must have the same program version on the flash memory
on the board.
• A terminal can be configured as “private” or “shared”:
– Private terminal shows the status of the single unit connected to it by a telephone cable.
– Shared terminal shows the status of all the units connected to the network.
• Each board can “talk” to 3 terminals at the most; there are usually no more than two in normal
operating conditions: one installed in the unit and one possibly in a remote location.
• To communicate on the local network, the units must be “configured” so that each of them can
convey the information necessary to operate properly. To achieve this, the separate units must first
be numbered progressively (1,2,3,...10) and then the various terminals and LAN boards correctly
addressed to them. The electrical connections must also be made, step by step, as described in the
following section.

Note: Alarm signals always have priority over the terminal, even if the parameters of another
unit are being viewed when the alarm is triggered.

56 Uniflair CW and DX Operation and Maintenance Manual


Common Network Connections
Up to 10 units connected to the network with a single terminal

In this configuration, should power fail in the first unit, the terminal would close down. It would
therefore not be possible to read any information regarding the units in the network. However, the other
units in the network would continue to operate normally.

Up to 10 units each with its own terminal

Up to 10 units with a single shared remote terminal

Uniflair CW and DX Operation and Maintenance Manual 57


pCO Boards Connections
In the figure below, a simple parallel connection is shown for more than one pCO boards of the pLAN
network, using a shielded cable with two twisted pairs and a shield. The cable is connected to all of the
boards through the J11 terminal respecting the indicated polarity.

Warning: Network polarity must be respected: the RX/TX+ of one board must be connected
to the RX/TX+ of the other boards; the same applies to RX/TX- and the GND.

Board Terminal Cable Connection


GND First couple (both wires)
Rx+ / Tx+ Second couple
Rx- / Tx- Second couple

The shield should be connected to the ground on the first unit at a metal point using a screw and a washer
and the length of the screen should be as short as possible.

58 Uniflair CW and DX Operation and Maintenance Manual


Remote Terminal Connections
Important warnings

Electrical connections must be carried out when the unit is switched off and unplugged. The network can
be configured differently depending on the maximum distance of the board and remote terminal
connections; it may be necessary to use a ‘T’ shunt TCONN6J (as shown below) to connect the remote
terminal to the main board.

If both of the pin-strip jumpers are between 2 and 3, the passage of the current is interrupted between the
connectors that are separated by a dashed line. If power is needed to be supplied to all of the connectors,
both of the jumpers must be between 1 and 2.

The 0 terminal is the support terminal, which can be used to connect the screen to the earth of the
shielded cable; the “T” derivative may however be connected to a metallic part of the unit, already
connected to the earth.

Uniflair CW and DX Operation and Maintenance Manual 59


Maximum distances between the terminal and the board

For local terminals the connection with the base board is already made with a 3 pair cable with a 6 way
telephone connector. The length of this cable should not be longer than 3 meters.

The remote terminals should be connected to the base board with a telephone cable such as that which
has been described in point 1 for a distance of up to 50 meters. For connections of up to 6 meters the
cable can be supplied, on request, by Schneider Electric.

Cable length Code


m 1.5 Meco 110X1A
m 3.0 Meco 130X1A
m 6.0 Meco 140X1A

For distances up to a maximum of 200 meters, a screened cable must be used (a twisted pair cable with a
shield AWG24, resistance < 80ohm/M). The cable can be a three or two twisted pair depending on if it
has to transfer power to the terminals.

LAN and Supervision Connection


For connection to both LAN and supervision networks, it is advisable to use a cable that has the
following specifications:

• Multi-coupled cables with internal flexible conductors made from tin plated copper (AWG 22,
insulated with polypropylene, singularly coupled, screened with aluminium/polyester tape +
continuity wire in tin plated copper (AWG 24/7) connected on a common axis to reduce the
diameter and protected by an external sheath in PVC.

Remote Terminal from the Board Connection
In this configuration example, it is necessary to:

• Use the two TCONN6J 'T' joints (one installed on the unit and one near the remote terminal).
• Use a three pair screened cable for two, so that the remote terminal is also supplied by the board of
unit 1 to which it is connected by the TCONN6J.
• Place the ferrite near the terminal in order to reduce the possibility of electromagnetic
disturbances.

Terminal and pCO Board Addressing the Local
Network
Before carrying out the configuration of the addresses, it is advised that the LAN connection between the
boards should be checked in addition to the connection with the remote (or shared terminal) and the
electric supply connections of the unit. It is possible to configure the address of the terminal only after
having connected it to the power supply by using the RJ11 telephone connector. To enter in configuration
mode press the UP, DOWN and ENTER buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds (these buttons are
present on all models); the screen shown below will be displayed with a flashing cursor in the left hand
top corner:

• To modify the address of the terminal (display address settings), press the ENTER button once
and the cursor will move to the address field (nn).
• By using the UP and DOWN buttons, select the desired value and press the ENTER button. If the
selected value is different from that previously used, the screen below will appear and the new
value will be recorded in the permanent memory of the display.
If “0” is entered as a value in the nn field, the terminal will communicate with the pCO board using the
“point-point” protocol (not pLAN) and the field XX will disappear since it has no meaning.

Assigning the list of private and shared terminals (pCO)

If it is necessary to modify the list of terminals associate to each single pCO board, perform the
following:

1. Enter in the configuration mode using the UP, DOWN and ENTER buttons as described in the
previous section.
2. Press the ENTER button until the cursor is positioned in the XX field (I/O board address).
3. Use the UP and DOWN buttons to choose the address of the desired pCO board.
The values that can be selected will be only those of the pCO boards which are effectively on line. If the
pLAN network is not working correctly, or if there are no pCO boards connected, it will not be possible
to modify the field and only “—” will be shown.

Pressing the button again will display the sequence of screens.

The ENTER button moves the cursor from one field to another and the UP and DOWN buttons change
the value of the chosen field.

The Pxx field: This shows the address of the selected board; in the example in the figure below, P01 has
been selected. To exit from the configuration procedure and record the data, select the “OK?” field and
set it to YES and then press the ENTER button.

62 Uniflair CW and DX Operation and Maintenance Manual


The fields in the “Adr” column represent the addresses of the terminals associated with the pCO board,
address 11 for the local terminal and 32 for the shared terminal, while the column Priv/Shared indicates
the type of terminal.

Warning: The terminals of the UG40 line cannot be configured as “Sp” (shared printer) as
they do not have a printer output.

Note: If the terminal remains inactive for more than 30 seconds (no button has been pressed)
it exits automatically from the configuration procedure without recording any eventual
changes.

LAN Parameter Configuration
After having carried out the configuration of the remote and shared user terminals, the operating
parameters of the LAN network must be set. This must only be carried out on the unit with the address
LAN1, because the information will automatically be passed on to the other units which are connected.

The parameters that need to be set are inside the connected units screen;
some of the settings that need to be carried out are described below:

1. Set the number of units connected to the LAN network.


2. Activate the automatic exchange of the unit in stand-by.
3. Set the cycle time to carry out the rotation of the units; if the hour is
set at 000, a simple test will be carried out putting the units in rotation with an interval of 2
minutes.
4. Set the number of units in stand-by (max. 2).
5. If the last line is set to “Yes,” it enables the stand-by unit to be switched on in the event of an
alarm. All of these settings are automatically passed on to the other connected units.
The screen shown here is shown only if the local network has been
configured, allowing management of the unit operation with the average
temperature value measured from the active units connected in the local
network or with the local value measured by the sensor present inside the
unit.

• Method Local Value: Control of the unit is entrusted to the or


temperature values read by the sensor present on the air conditioner
• Method: Average Value: Control of the unit is entrusted to the average
temperature read by the sensor present on the active units connected
in the local network (if the difference between the average value and
the sensor reading itself is more than the “Average/Loc.Diff.” value,
the control will automatically move from “Average” to “Local”)
The “Exclude From Rotation” parameter enables excluding the unit from the
rotation time management by working in Stand-alone mode. If required, this function must be enabled
for individual unit. This setting is not passed on to the other units; it needs to be set individually on each
unit.

Air pressure control configuration screen

If a series of units are connected in the LAN, the fan speed can be modulated
based on a local probe reading or alternately by calculating the average
reading of all the probes connected and configured for each active unit. This
setting must be made in the LAN setting screens for each individual unit.

Displaying the Network from the Terminal
From any terminal in the network, the screen << NetSTAT >> will appear when the UP, DOWN and
ENTER buttons are pressed at the same time for at least 10 seconds. The NetSTAT screen indicates all of
the pCO boards with a LAN address and all of the terminals present in the network, including the remote
shared terminal, and its relative addresses.

In the example, the result is that the network is composed of 3 LAN boards with the address 1,2,3 and of
4 user terminals with the address 11,12,13 and 32.

Humidifier
The only maintenance required is periodic inspection and cleaning of the steam humidifier components.
This should be done at least once a year.

Note: Periodically inspect the feed and drain connections in order to guarantee trouble-free
humidifier operation. Limescale deposits can affect humidifier performance. Periodically
check for limescale buildup and replace humidifier cylinder when necessary.

The frequency of this operation depends on the supply water: the higher the content of salts or
impurities, the more frequently the cylinder will need cleaning. Before removing the cylinder for
replacement or cleaning it is necessary to completely drain all of the water from the boiler.
