eCommission SmartX Controllers mobile app

Introduction

The eCommission SmartX Controllers mobile application is a dedicated mobile application used to perform tasks such as communication configuration, commissioning, flow balancing, and checkout operations on SpaceLogic* BACnet/IP devices and RP controller expansion modules. It is designed for commissioning agents, flow balancers, and technicians who need simple workflows that deliver a variety of commissioning and pre-commissioning functionality.

* Formerly known as SmartX.

The eCommission mobile application can connect to a single BACnet/IP controller via Bluetooth or to a network of BACnet/IP controllers on the local network, using Wi-Fi or an Ethernet cable. The eCommission mobile application is designed for use with Android, iOS (Apple), and Microsoft Windows 10 devices, and is available for download from Google Play, Apple App Store, and Microsoft Store.

Features

The eCommission SmartX Controllers mobile app provides simple workflows for electricians, flow balancers, and technicians for BACnet/IP devices and RP controller expansion modules, such as:

  • Use of BACnet to discover and connect

  • Configure network communication settings

  • View status information and diagnostic files

  • Download firmware and application image files

  • Perform a restart

  • Perform checkout of inputs and outputs of a controller or an RP controller expansion module

  • Perform calibration and testing of devices such as lights and blinds

  • Perform commissioning of Modbus and Zigbee devices

  • Quickly configure application setpoints and values with Configuration Menus

  • Air balance terminal boxes controlled by MP-V controllers

  • Use the mobile camera device to capture controller specific data from the Data Matrix symbol on the product label and High Security Zigbee QR Codes containing IEEE Address and Install codes.

Controller list creator

The eCommission mobile application allows the technician, electrician, or flow balancer to create a list of BACnet/IP devices by scanning the Data Matrix symbol on the tear-off product info label on BACnet/IP devices, using the camera on the mobile device. The resulting list shows the model name and unique serial number of each controller. Additionally, unique details entered by the technician, electrician, or flow balancer about the controller's location and associated equipment, as well as any comments, are recorded. This list can be exported as a CSV file for use by other tools.

Device settings

The eCommission mobile application allows either the easy discovery of BACnet/IP controllers over an IP network or over a Bluetooth connection. Filters can be applied to the list to display a desired subset of these devices. The discovery view allows the technician to easily identify and select a controller to view or make changes to the configuration, including the controller's location, BACnet and network settings, and to set the controller's parent server.

The eCommission mobile app allows the technician to configure and then save common network communications settings for BACnet/IP devices, thus saving time and minimizing errors. Once saved, common settings can be applied to new controllers added to the network, or they can be edited and the changes downloaded to a group of previously configured controllers.

Download image and firmware

With the eCommission mobile application the technician or electrician can download, to a BACnet/IP device, an application image file that is file from WorkStation or downloaded from the EcoStruxure BMS Applications site. This feature is especially useful in cases where control applications cannot be downloaded normally, through WorkStation, because the system infrastructure is not yet completed or is otherwise not serviceable.

The technician or electrician can download firmware to multiple BACnet/IP devices over an IP connection. This is useful when an application image is associated with a newer firmware version than what is currently loaded into the controller.

Flow balance

Using the eCommission mobile application, the flow balancer or technician has use of an intuitive workflow that allows airflow calibration to be performed without the need for programming. The eCommission mobile app automatically guides the flow balancer or technician through a five-step flow balance process. Manual Checkout commands provide the flexibility to efficiently verify and command the air flow values. Following flow balancing, a report can be generated in HTML format, for one or more VAV units. The balancing parameters generated during flow balance are stored in the parent server, facilitating controller replacement when necessary. In addition, the eCommission mobile app creates a log file in the MP-V controller in which the steps performed during flow balancing are automatically saved. This log file can be viewed in WorkStation.

I/O checkout

After wiring the physical inputs and outputs of the BACnet/IP devices, the technician or electrician can perform I/O checkout to verify that the wiring was done correctly and that the physical inputs and outputs are working properly.

During I/O checkout, a report is generated in the BACnet/IP device. In this report, any failed connections are identified so that they can be corrected. When checkout is complete, you can view the report in WorkStation. This report can serve as a record of checkout progress during the installation of a project.

The technician or electrician can perform I/O checkout on the RP-C room bus to verify proper communication over the room bus between the RP-C and the associated RP controller expansion modules. Module type mismatches or address mismatches can then be resolved. After wiring the physical inputs and outputs of the RP controller expansion modules, the technician or electrician can perform the following tasks on the different modules:

  • DALI light modules: discover, wink, and associate DALI lights with the logical software points, and test individual lights

  • 0-10V light modules: test individual lights

  • Blind modules: calibrate and test blinds

  • Relay module: test outputs

The technician or electrician can commission Modbus devices and determine their online/offline status.

The technician or electrician can commission Zigbee devices by joining them either to a standard security, high security or Vingcard network, associating them with controller objects and determine their online/offline status.

Browse objects

The eCommission mobile application can be used to view all the objects within a selected BACnet/IP controller application, allowing the technician to view and edit these objects as needed.

Configuration menu

The eCommission application enables the technician to commission a BACnet/IP controller and quickly configure its setpoints and values using the Configuration Menu feature. Multiple configuration menus can be created in WorkStation and each configuration menu contains a set of preconfigured properties. Configuration menus are saved as part of an application image that the technician can download to the controller.

Status information

Using the eCommission mobile application, the technician or electrician can view important BACnet/IP device status information where the device's firmware and hardware can be identified, and view its operational status, network status, and flow balance status.

Diagnostic files

The eCommission mobile application allows the technician or electrician to view and export the BACnet/IP device report, error log, or crash report, for use during troubleshooting or when communicating with product support.

Device restart

Using the Device Restart function of the eCommission mobile application, the technician or electrician can perform a warm or cold restart of the BACnet/IP device.

Connection options

You can choose from several different options to connect the eCommission SmartX Controllers mobile application to one or more BACnet/IP devices.

Bluetooth connection by adapter

With eCommission Bluetooth Adapter, the eCommission mobile application can connect to a BAcnet/IP device through Bluetooth. You plug the adapter into the side of a SpaceLogic Sensor connected to the controller's sensor bus.
