This section provides recommendations on wire sizes and lengths for the Central IO modules.
This section provides recommendations on minimum wire sizes (cross-sectional areas) and maximum wire lengths for the wires connected to the screw terminals of Central IO modules, AS-B servers, RP and MP controllers, and IP-IO modules. Recommendations on minimum wire size and maximum cable length for the digital inputs of the RP controller expansion modules, the DALI bus of the DALI light modules, the SMI Interface of the SMI blind modules, the Zigbee DALI and 0-10V modules, and the KNX Modbus gateway are also provided. The recommendations are for guidance only. Other wire sizes and lengths may be used, depending on wiring rules and when appropriate.
The Status LED on the front of the automation devices changes color and flashes to indicate the status of the device.
The AS-P server offers enhanced processor performance, increased memory size, dual Ethernet ports, and high-speed USB interfaces. The AS-P server is a Schneider Electric manufactured embedded device that generally serves as the lowest tier EcoStruxure BMS server within the EcoStruxure BMS. The AS-P controls and supervises equipment, typically HVAC equipment. AS-P servers use Central IO module with connected field devices, such as sensors and actuators, to do that.
The tables that follow provide a summary of all the equipment models you can interconnect to form the smoke control system.
You must install most of the controls products listed here in an enclosure that meets the following minimum criteria. After the criteria, several specific enclosure models are listed as examples of enclosures that meet the minimum criteria you can use for the smoke control system.
The EcoStruxure BMS hardware includes several models of automation servers. These are the main distributed controllers in the system. They perform management, execution and supervision of the smoke control application programs. The server models approved for smoke control include the following:
Using the power rating for each of the modules (listed in the following table), accumulate the power consumed by the Smoke Control Server and Central IO modules. The PS-24V can supply up to 30W (~1.25A at 24 VDC). The 24 VDC from the PS-24V is delivered to all modules connecting on the bus on the right side of the PS-24V up to the next power supply module. You must add another PS-24V on the I/O bus to keep the load on the previous power supply at 30W or below.
The MP-C controller and IP-IO module, which are based on the same hardware platform, are installed using either of two methods: they can be snapped onto a DIN rail or screwed onto a flat surface inside a cabinet.
The wiring of the I/O terminals varies based on the type of I/O provided on the various modules. There are many modules that present differing combinations of the same I/O types. In describing the wiring of the I/O modules, the wiring descriptions that follow are based first on I/O type to avoid duplicating the I/O wiring information described for each of the module models.
