MP-Cs

SmartX IP Controller – MP-C 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. MP-C is a native SmartX device, which can either be used as a standalone BACnet/IP field controller or as part of an EcoStruxure BMS with a SmartX AS-P or AS-B server, or an Enterprise Server, as the parent server.

MP-C allows for flexible control solutions due to the dual Ethernet ports, the interface to SmartX Sensors, and the versatile mix of universal inputs/outputs, triac outputs, relay outputs, and high power relay outputs.

When MP-Cs are part of an EcoStruxure BMS, you can take full advantage of the existing EcoStruxure Building Operation engineering tools.

The MP-C can be installed on a DIN rail or other flat surface inside a cabinet.

All MP-C models can be equipped with MP-C Display, which is an optional add-on module for output override. The MP-C Display can also be used to view and locally configure inputs and outputs.

MP-C Models

The MP-C comes in five models with different I/O point count and different I/O point mix.

For more information, see MP-C Models .

MP-C Onboard I/O

The MP-C models offer a versatile mix of I/O point types that match a wide variety of applications. Most of the I/O points are universal inputs/outputs, which are highly flexible and can be configured as either inputs or outputs.

For more information, see MP-C Onboard I/O .

Output Override Function (Optional)

The output override function allows you to manually override outputs. This function can be used for testing, commissioning, and maintenance of equipment.

For more information, see Output Override Function .

MP-C Built-in Power Supply

The MP-C has a built-in power supply designed to accommodate 24 VAC at 50/60 Hz or 24 to 30 VDC input power.

For more information, see MP-C Built-in Power Supply .

SmartX IP Controller Device Memory

SmartX IP Controller devices have three types of memory:

  • Flash memory: for boot loader, operating system, application software, and configuration storage

  • RAM: for runtime operation

  • FRAM non-volatile memory: for data retention in the case of power outage

For more information, see SmartX IP Controller Device Memory .

SmartX IP Controller Supported Building Standards

One of the cornerstones of the EcoStruxure BMS is support for open standards. As a result, the SmartX IP controller complies with the BACnet open standard, one of the most popular standards for buildings.

For more information, see MP Series Controller Supported Building Standards .

MP Series Controller Communication Ports

The MP Series controller contains a combination of Ethernet, USB, and SmartX Sensor communication ports.

For more information, see MP Series Controller Communication Ports .

SmartX IP Controller Sensor Bus

The SmartX IP controller provides a sensor bus, which allows SmartX Sensors to be connected to the controller.

For more information, see MP Series Controller Sensor Bus .

MP-C Screw Terminals

The MP-C is delivered with terminal blocks installed on the device. The MP-C uses pluggable terminal blocks, which are easy to install and remove from the device.

For more information, see MP-C Screw Terminals .

MP Series Controller LEDs

There are five LEDs on the front panel of the MP Series controller.

For more information, see MP Series Controller LEDs .

MP Series Controller Reset Modes

You can reset and restart the MP Series controllers in different ways depending on how long you press the reset button. The resets and restarts can affect the retention of values after restart based on the retain levels configured for the variables.

For more information, see MP Series Controller Reset Modes .

MP-C Device Installation

The MP-C can be installed on a DIN rail or other flat surface inside a cabinet.

For more information, see MP-C Device Installation .

Wiring

The wiring recommendations provide guidance regarding wiring of the I/O modules, SmartX servers, and SmartX IP Controller devices.

For more information, see Wiring .

MP Series Controller Firmware Management

Using WorkStation, you can update the firmware of multiple MP Series controllers and their attached SmartX Sensors at the same time with minimum downtime.

For more information, see SmartX IP Controller Device Firmware Management .
