Brief The class starts with a Very Brief discussion of the system block diagram of an XBS System showing all central
equipment such as work station PC’s, local and remote C-buses, the interface equipment for the satellite processors
such as the Q7750A Excel 10 Zone Manager, System routers such as the Q7751A/B FTT to FTT and TPT to FTT
routers, Q7740A/B Repeaters, User Interface and Configuration tool interfaces such as the Q7752A serial interface for
the E-Vision PC, the User Interface Wall Modules such as T7770A-D and the DDWM T7780A and E- Bus FTT
termination modules 209541B. All components of the system are discussed to a functional level. This part of the class
is covered more thoroughly in CXBX5000.
The controllers are not programmed via a traditional programming language such as Microcel Pascal for Micro/Macrocel controllers. Instead the application program is prewritten by Honeywell engineers and the configurator simply configures this program via a battery of parameters. Even the point file is configured parametrically. The parametric database resides in the controller EEPROM. This might appear as somewhat restrictive but in practice the parametric choices are quite elaborate and do allow an unusual flexibility. However, a default configuration is also available that will allow the controller to run and control the connected equipment without any parametric involvement. This approach leads to a much quicker application/engineering process once the engineer knows what choices to make to match his/her application. The process is quite akin to EMS programming in Excel Plus controllers. One does not write an EMS program for the Excel Plus Controller. Instead one configures one by an intelligent choice of EMS parameters. The program is already written and is resident on the controller EPROM.
Focus The class covers thoroughly the various configuration options of the W7750A/B controllers. Indeed this is the purpose of the class. The class assumes that students are familiar with the E-Vision Engineering Process. The students also learn how to commission the controllers through E-Vision using different configuration options. Actual physical test and checkout of the various configuration options of the controllers is an integral part of the class.
Written and oral exercises are used throughout the class to reinforce the learning process.
