BRIEF: The class starts with a thorough discussion of the system block diagram of a typical LCBS System
showing all central equipment such as work station PC's, local and remote E-buses, the satellite processors such
as the Constant/Variable Volume controllers, special controllers such as the Remote I/O, UV and CHC
Controllers, 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 LONSpec PC, the
User Interface Wall Modules such as T7770A-D and the DDWM T7780A and the E-bus FTT termination
modules 209541B. All components of the system are discussed to a functional level.
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 a
somewhat restrictive approach 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.
The class covers thoroughly the basic or default configuration of the W7750A/B controller,
XL15 Building Managers, T7770 series and other Wall modules, T7300f/Q7300H
Commercial Thermostats and the operation of S7760 Command Display Unit. This is done in
order to master the engineering process as implemented in the XL 15 Engineering Application.
The Ancillary controllers are the Primary focus of this class and are used to master the
XL15 Engineering Process.
Students also learn how to commission the controllers through the LONSpec configuration tool. Actual
physical test and checkout of the controllers is an integral part of the class.
Students go through the configuration process with hands-on detailed lab exercises at least
3 times. Students’ work is checked by bringing the configured system online via the
LONStation tool and checked for thoroughness and completeness. The engineering
solutions are also checked via the internet explorer.
Written exercises are used throughout the class to reinforce the learning process.
OBJECTIVES: Upon completion of the course the student will be able to:
*FCU, UV, CHC, IO and other miscellaneous Controllers. Actual class may include other controllers also.
