SpaceLogic Sensors

SpaceLogic Sensors are a family of living space sensors designed for BACnet/IP controllers using the EcoStruxure Building Operation user interface. These sensors use an RJ-45 sensor bus that provides communication and power from the BACnet/IP controller.

The maximum number of SpaceLogic Sensor devices you can connect to a BACnet/IP controller depends on the selected combination of cover and sensor base types. The limit also depends on whether a SpaceLogic Bluetooth Adapter is connected to the sensor. For more information, see eCommission SmartX Controllers Mobile Application and BACnet/IP Controller Connections .

Important:

The maximum cable length of the sensor bus end to end and per segment is 61 m (200 ft).

SpaceLogic Sensor Modular Bases and Covers

SpaceLogic Sensor devices are modular and are ordered in two parts: the sensor base and the cover. Four SpaceLogic communicating sensor base models are available as well as a variety of covers.

Typically, you can match any base unit containing temperature, carbon dioxide (CO2), and humidity sensor objects with any combination of front covers including varied button counts, occupancy sensors, and displays. The exception here is the LCD Temperature Sensor which includes its own unique sensor base and cover. You cannot interchange it with other covers or bases.

For more information, see SpaceLogic Sensor Modular Bases and Covers .

SpaceLogic Sensor Models

SpaceLogic Sensor include blank cover and occupancy sensor-only cover models, as well as several models with pushbutton or display-driven user interfaces that allow you to control temperature, occupancy, overrides, and a variety of other settings in a designated living space.

Tip:

SpaceLogic Sensor models (SLASXXX, SLAWXX, and SLABXXX) are non-communicating versions of the SpaceLogic Sensor that you connect directly to the IO terminals of the controller rather than the serial bus. You configure them using a temperature input object as per standard thermistor types. For more information, see Configuring a BACnet/IP Device Temperature Input Point .

SpaceLogic Sensor Display Properties

You use the SpaceLogic Sensor Display property tabs in WorkStation to view and configure the UI features of the various sensor models within your control application.

For more information, see SpaceLogic Display Properties .

Firmware Upgrade

The SpaceLogic Sensor upgrade process is automatic since its firmware is part of the same package you use to upgrade the BACnet/IP controller. That firmware package includes 3 overall files: the I/O board, the CPU board and the SpaceLogic Sensor. Each individual BACnet/IP controller is responsible for upgrading its own SpaceLogic Sensor.

Should you decide to replace or swap a SpaceLogic Sensor, the new unit is automatically loaded with the last BACnet/IP controller firmware package resident in the controller. The BACnet/IP controller saves that file and re-uses it when a SpaceLogic Sensor is replaced.

Note:

A factory reset affects the BACnet/IP controller’s firmware because the controller upgrade includes not only firmware files that pertain to the controller itself, but also firmware files to support the attached hardware. This hardware may include, but is not limited to, equipment like the SpaceLogic Sensor and RP controller expansion modules. For more information, see BACnet/IP Device Firmware Management .

Replacement

When replacing a SpaceLogic Sensor, you can replace the sensor with any model of the same family. The BACnet/IP controller recognizes the model and communicates with the replacement device. Additionally, if you decide to replace a temperature and CO2 sensor and then later decide to replace only the temperature sensor, the BACnet/IP controller still operates with only the temperature sensor. Any application written to use the CO2 sensor is affected, however, since the replacement unit causes EcoStruxure Building Operation objects representing the CO2 sensor to be configured as out of service.

Note:

It is the sensor object that is out of service here and not the entire SpaceLogic Sensor.

When replacing a SpaceLogic Sensor, be sure to check the DIP switch address to ensure that the system recognizes the fitted unit as replacement for one you removed. Otherwise, the BACnet/IP controller does not interact with the same unit. In order for the new unit to assume the identity of the old one, the DIP switch settings must match.

During the replacement process, you can swap the faceplate on the sensor model if you want. Even if the model sensor types and faceplate do not match, EcoStruxure BMS still assumes it is the same unit and configures any absent or deficient sensors or displays objects as out of service.

Addressing

When the BACnet/IP controller requires more than one SpaceLogic Sensor, be sure to adjust the DIP switches of the devices to unique settings. You should also ensure that at least two switches are present to provide the four unique settings the product requires. The following table shows the mapping between each unique DIP switch setting and SpaceLogic Sensor addressing. The default setting for both DIP switches is OFF.

Tip:

Setting more than one SpaceLogic Sensor to the same address (including not changing the factory default DIP switch setting) produces an error and results in a communication failure to any units sharing that address.

SpaceLogic Sensor Operation and Calibration Modes

The CO2, temperature, and occupancy SpaceLogic Sensors provide a variety of operation and calibration options.

For more information, see SpaceLogic Sensor Operation and Calibration Modes .

SpaceLogic Sensor Display Scene Configuration

The SpaceLogic Sensor Display Scene Configuration page provides you with a series of buttons and trigger function identifiers to use when programming the Touchscreen Display model.

For more information, see SpaceLogic Sensor Display Scene Configuration .

Application and Scene Association

In the SpaceLogic Sensor Display object, the Selected scene property displays the scene identifier corresponding to the user's scene button press. The control application binds to this property, so the SpaceLogic Sensor button can act as an application input.

For more information, see Application and Scene Association .

SpaceLogic Sensor HMI References

HMI references act as special two-way references that resolve the synchronization problem for the local copy in HMI devices and applications that act as servers when communicating with the RP-C controller.

For more information, see SpaceLogic Sensor HMI References .
