Type EM-LON

LonWorks interface for EASYLAB controllers and adapter modules

Expansion module for EASYLAB fume cupboard controllers, room controllers, extract air controllers, supply air controllers, and adapter modules, for the integration of rooms or individual volume flow controllers with the central BMS

  • LonWorks FTT-10A interface
  • Communication only using standard network variables (SNVT)
  • The expansion module is fitted into the casing with the EASYLAB base component
  • Easy retrofitting
  • Double-stack terminal blocks for the LonWorks network
  • Service pin push button and corresponding indicator light


Interface to central BMS

  • When used on a controller with active room management function (RMF) the module provides also data points for the entire room, e.g. for total volume flows or consolidated alarms
  • When used on a single controller: data points for volume flow rate, alarm, damper blade position, or others
  • Centralised operating mode default setting, e.g. night-time operation

  • Application
  • Description

Application

  • Expansion module Type EM-LON for the EASYLAB system
  • LonWorks FTT-10A interface to the central BMS
  • Data points for individual controllers or for the room
  • Room interface: Default setting of room operating modes within the EASYLAB system, increase or reduction of the air change rate, readout of the actual room operating values or evaluated damper blade positions, consolidated alarms
  • Controller interface: Operating mode default setting for a single fume cupboard controller, readout of individual operating values such as volume flow rates for single controllers, or individual alarms
  • Can be used with fume cupboard, supply air, extract air or differential pressure controller EASYLAB TCU3 and with adapter module TAM
  • For use in laboratories, clean rooms in the pharmaceutical and semiconductor industries, operating theatres, intensive care units, and offices with very demanding control requirements
  • Factory mounted or for retrofitting into the EASYLAB base component casing

Special characteristics

  • LonWorks free topology network with an arbitrary number of branches (star, line, and arbitrary combinations)
  • Communication only using standard network variables (SNVT)
  • Data interface for an EASYLAB controller or for an EASYLAB room with different functional profiles
  • System integration (binding) into the LonWorks network is required

Parts and characteristics

  • Microprocessor with basis programme stored in nonvolatile memory to load LonWorks applications
  • LonWorks transceiver FTT-10A – free topology – twisted pair
  • Double stack terminal block for LonWorks network (simple wiring)
  • Service pin push button and corresponding indicator light for sending the Neuron ID required for system integration
  • Two indicator lights to indicate 'sending data' and 'receiving data'

Construction features

  • PCB dimensions and fixing points correspond to the EASYLAB main PCB and the casing
  • Fixing with screws
  • Pin header to connect the module to the main PCB of the TCU3 or TAM

The expansion module EM-LON supplements the EASYLAB base components (controller TCU3 or adapter module TAM) with a LonWorks interface to link rooms or individual volume flow controllers to the central BMS.

The LonWorks interface supports the EASYLAB room operating mode concept. It is possible to set operating mode defaults in order to control different volume flow rates for daytime and night-time operation; it is also possible to increase or reduce the air change rate by a certain amount (volume flow rate setpoint change), e.g. to influence the room temperature.

Using the LonWorks interface, an individual alarm management system can be set up by consolidating configurable EASYLAB alarms. The interface also enables the transfer of actual operating values such as volume flow rates and damper blade position for a controller or for all controllers in a room.

Expansion module to supplement an EASYLAB base component (controller TCU3 or adapter module TAM) with a LonWorks interface to link rooms or individual volume flow controllers to the central BMS.

The expansion module includes a LonWorks transceiver FTT-10A (free topology, twisted pair), a service pin push button for LonWorks integration, and indicator lights for 'sending data' and 'receiving data'.

Special characteristics

  • LonWorks free topology network with an arbitrary number of branches (star, line, and arbitrary combinations)
  • Communication only using standard network variables (SNVT)
  • Data interface for an EASYLAB controller or for an EASYLAB room with different functional profiles
  • System integration (binding) into the LonWorks network is required

Technical data

  • Communication: LonWorks-Transceiver FTT-10A, free topology, twisted pair
  • Connection to LonWorks using the double-stack terminal blocks

Data points for a single controller

  • Volume flow rate actual and setpoint values
  • Damper blade position
  • Operating mode
  • Alarm/status messages
  • Total supply air and total extract air actual values (room)
  • Evaluated damper blade positions for all controllers in a room
  • Number of controllers within the EASYLAB system
  • Integration of volume flows
  • Status of the digital inputs and outputs

Additional data points for a fume cupboard controller

  • Operating mode default setting for the fume cupboard controller equipped with the expansion module
  • Selection of priority for operating mode default setting
  • Face velocity actual value and setpoint value (only for fume cupboard controllers with face velocity transducer, equipment function FH-VS)

Data points for an EASYLAB room

  • Operating mode default setting for the room: Just one data point is required to set the default operating mode for all controllers in a room
  • Selection of priority for operating mode default setting (central BMS or room)
  • Room operating mode
  • Volume flow rate setpoint change (by the central BMS, for example) for an external temperature or differential pressure control
  • Setpoint value switching for differential pressure control: Switching between two differential pressure setpoint values
