The Touchscreen Display model provides a menu-driven interface with a front menu and a functions menu screen that you configure through EcoStruxure Building Operation.
The model has nine primary functions:
Changing the temperature setpoint
For more information, see Changing the Temperature Setpoint .
Selecting the fan speed

Selecting the degree type
For more information, see Selecting the Degree Type .
Changing the occupancy mode or overrides
For more information, see Changing the Occupancy Mode .
Changing the heating or cooling mode
For more information, see Changing the Heating and Cooling Mode .
Accessing and configuring the integrator menu

For more information, see Dimming the Lights .
Controlling the blinds

For more information, see Selecting the Scenes Menu .
The vast majority of the properties in the Basic and Advanced tabs of the Display object are used to turn on and off features in the SpaceLogic Sensor Touchscreen Display model, including the setpoint, fan speed, occupancy override and HVAC mode. For example, you can control access to all submenus including the functions menu and any of its additional submenus using the Allow menu page property on the Advanced page. Once you save your choice, those menus are no longer accessible from the display. For more information, see Configuring SpaceLogic Sensor Display Properties .
You can also also turn the time off on the Advanced page using the Show time property. Once you save this choice, the display no longer shows the time. Similarly, you can switch from the 12-hour to the 24-hour format using the Time format property. You can also turn off CO2 and humidity on the display’s default screen. For more information, see SpaceLogic Sensor Touchscreen Display Model- Front Menu Screen .
You can select your specific fan type depending on the type of fan located in your zone. Typically, you only need to set this once because the zone equipment either does, or does not include a fan. If it does, it only has so many speeds, further limiting the available choices.
For more information, see Selecting the Fan Speed .
You can use the Allow blind control property to toggle on and off control for blinds. You can then use the Blind control mode or Blind angle mode to perform a digital toggle or analog adjustment for the blind control or blind angle function. For example, you may want to open and close the blinds with a single button click, or perhaps toggle the control to open and close the blinds more gradually.
You can use the Button 1-12 function properties in the Button and Scene Configuration tab to select one of the functions or scenes to display for this button on the SpaceLogic Sensor touchscreen display model screen. For example, the integrator may wish to allow users to activate a projector scene with a single button click on the Front or Functions menu instead of on the overall Scenes menu. This single button click may turn the projector on, close the blinds, and perhaps dim the lights.
You can use the Scene button 1-8 icon properties to allow the integrator to select which icon to display for this particular scene. For example, the integrator may display the presentation mode to allow the user to activate that mode and turn on the projector.
You can bind to the Display object properties and read them into your Script programs. There are also properties that you might want to configure from your Script programs. For instance, you can drive the heating and cooling status indicator to show that you are actively heating or cooling and also animate the background color of the display. Specifically, you may display a pink background when actively heating and a blue background when actively cooling. Similarly, you may want to drive the fan speed to show whether your program has overridden the fan speed and if this is no longer what the user specified.
It can be difficult to drive a property from a program because reading and writing to a program simultaneously can be challenging without overwriting objects. There is a a technique for waiting and then writing a null back so you do not overwrite your objects.
A unique feature in the SpaceLogic Sensor Touchscreen Display model are the integrator menu pages that allow users access to information about the on-board sensors, the sensor device itself, the parent RP controller, and custom text messages. Access to the integrator menu pages is controlled on an individual page basis. You access each of the pages by clicking the icon which is enabled by the Allow sensors information page , Allow device information page , Allow parent information page , and Allow custom information page in the Display object. If the individual pages are not visible in the integrator menu, the property is not enabled and the page is not available to you.
System administrators or control system engineers may wish to turn off access to these pages after the commissioning phase of a project to prevent exposing internal data like Device IDs and IP addresses to room occupants. There may be a perceived Cybersecurity risk with exposing this information after the building has been commisionned and turned over. It may also be sensitive information that system administrators and control engineers may not want in user’s hands. As a result, they should evaluate the information on these pages when the job is initially configured to decide whether the information should be shown to users.
