Use this workflow to perform flow balance on a single MP-V controller, using the eCommission SmartX Controllers mobile application. Related information can be found in the section after the flowchart.
Start the eCommission application and log in as either a Technician or Flow Balancer.
For more information, see Downloading and Starting the eCommission SmartX Controllers Mobile Application .
Start the flow balance process for an MP-V controller installed on a VAV unit. The direction of damper rotation is verified automatically during this process.
You configure the MP-V controller setpoints to set up the parameters by which the controller is flow balanced. These setpoints include the maximum flow setpoint, selected by default, and the intermediate and minimum flow setpoints, which are optional.
For more information, see Configuring MP-V Controller Setpoints .
Using the eCommission application, you flow balance a VAV unit at each designated setpoint to achieve the desired air flow.
For more information, see Flow Balancing at Maximum, Intermediate, or Minimum Flow Setpoint .
After flow balancing the MP-V controller, you can perform other tasks as needed:
Verify direction of rotation to open
You can manually verify the direction of damper rotation to determine whether the actuator rotates clockwise or counterclockwise to open.
For more information, see Manually Verifying the Direction of Damper Rotation .
Manual checkouts of air flow
After completing the automated flow balancing process, you can optionally verify and command the air flow values by performing manual checkout.
For more information, see Performing Manual Checkout of Air Flow .
Create, append, view, or delete flow balance reports
After completing flow balancing, you can use the eCommission application to create, append, view, or delete flow balance reports.
For more information, see Managing Flow Balance Reports .
Capture device information from the controller
You can use the Controller List Creator function of the eCommission application to capture device information from the Digital Matrix symbol on the tear-off product info labels of SmartX IP controllers.
