This section provides recommendations on wire sizes and lengths for the MP-C controllers.
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 and RP-IO I/O 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 MP-C controller is a multi-purpose, fully programmable, IP based field controller. The MP-C models offer a flexible mix of I/O point types that suits a wide range of HVAC applications. The MP-C can either be used as a standalone BACnet field controller or as part of an EcoStruxure BMS with an automation server or Enterprise Server as the parent server.
Part number: SXWMPCDSP10A01
Part numbers: SXWMPC15A10A01, SXWMPC18A10A01, SXWMPC18B10A01, SXWMPC24A10A01, and SXWMPC36A10A01
The Status LED on the front of the automation devices changes color and flashes to indicate the status of the device.
There are five or three LEDs on the front panel of the MP-C controller, depending on the MP-C model.
Before you can do an I/O checkout on a DALI light, you must first perform a DALI discovery and associate the discovered physical lights with logical lights in the RP controller configuration. You then wink DALI lights in order to identify the light location when associating the physical light with the logical light output.
