This document should be used in conjunction with the VAV Start-up document (A6V10665935) and the "Application Help" in ABT Site. Application Help describes application types installed in the ABT Site library and lists all configuration items found in a specific template or type.
How to find Application help in ABT Site
To understand how to access Application Help, click the Help button in ABT Site and go to Configuration > Application configuration. (see "Title and toolbar")
This application template is factory preloaded into the DXR2 automation station, or it can also be manually loaded using ABT Site. A template can be used as a starting point for the creation of other similar templates, using ABT-Site. Changing or adjusting parameters and setpoint values does not require a new template number, but if a physical input or output is changed, a new 5-digit template number should be assigned.
Application parameters and settings can be modified to meet specific jobsite requirements such as: room setpoints, room airflow rates, room operating modes, actuator timing, and so on. Important parameters fall into two main categories:
1) Individual BACnet configuration values such as setpoints for room temp and air quality.
2) ABT-Inside commissioning parameters such as those used for air component calibration or to tailor features of selected application functions.
If the default application does not meet job requirements, an application can be configured and modified to job specifications using ABT Site.
The Room / Room segment concept
Familiarity with the Room / Room segment concept will be helpful when reading this document. See the "Room/segment" topic under Technical principles in ABT Site help.
VAV/CV Cooling Only Application Template 14020 (DXR), 14720 (ADXR). This application template modulates the supply air damper of the terminal box for cooling and ventilation as it maintains room temperature at setpoint. The main output is an analog output for damper position (VavSuPos) that is modulated by an airflow PID controller.
