This following applicable documentation is useful for installing the BACnet smoke control system equipment.
This following applicable documentation is useful for installing Infinet 2 smoke control system equipment.
The Automation Server Smoke Control (AS-SMK) uses the model TB-AS-W1 for mounting. To install the Automation Server (AS) on the terminal base, follow these instructions:
The EcoStruxure BMS hardware includes the Automation Server (AS-SMK), or AS-P (AS-P-SMK), PS-24V power supply, terminal bases, and a variety of I/O modules. The Automation Server (AS-SMK), or AS-P (AS-P-SMK) is the main controller in the system and is always installed with a PS-24V supply forming the minimum configuration.
The EcoStruxure smoke control system supports the MP-X and IP-IO controllers mentioned previously in this guide.
In addition to the MPX IP controllers and the b3 and MNB families of BACnet MS/TP controllers, the EcoStruxure smoke control system also supports the proprietary Infinet i2 family of controllers when connected to the AS-P-SMK smoke control server. The AS-P-SMK server provides integrated support for the Infinet i2 controllers and has been part of the UL864 system listing since evaluation in 2018.
EcoStruxure Building Management for smoke control includes a wide variety of hardware controllers, I/O modules, and a family of software products. EcoStruxure Building Operation refers to the software running in the Smoke Control Servers, Enterprise Servers, Report Servers and Workstations. The EcoStruxure BMS is an integrated solution for building management that combines environmental control, energy management, energy monitoring/metering, alarm management, security and reporting. The system can be customized for building management applications extending from small office buildings to skyscrapers and office, school, or industrial campus environments.
Other than responding to the initial fire alarm in an attempt to localize and minimize smoke migration, the other primary function of a smoke control system is to provide the firefighters with a means of overriding and controlling selected portions of the HVAC system (dedicated and non-dedicated equipment). The conditions in a facility can change significantly subsequent to the initial alarm signal. When firefighters arrive at the scene, it is desirable to provide them with the necessary controls to revise the smoke control system operation. This must be presented to the firefighters in a form that can be easily interpreted and operated to permit them to direct the smoke control response after that initial alarm. Within a listed smoke control system, the override capability for firefighters is accommodated with the provision of a Firefighter's Smoke Control Station (FSCS).
