Changing the Heating and Cooling Mode

You configure valid HVAC modes in the Display object HVAC mode property with values such as Auto, Heat, and Cool. The Display object Allowed HVAC modes property determines what modes are available such as Auto , Auto-Heat , Auto-Cool , and Auto-Heat-Cool . As long as this feature is supported by the control application, this allows the room occupant to change the HVAC mode.

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.

Property Tabs

The Display Basic tab properties includes the same General Information you find on all EcoStruxure Building Operation objects. Beyond that, it also provides a Setpoint , a Fan speed , an Occupancy override , an HVAC mode , a Heating cooling status , and 4 Custom value text fields. In addition, there are several properties that allow you to control the temperature display. For example, the Temperature display mode allows you to configure the temperature value displayed on the SpaceLogic Sensor display in its passive display state with the following settings:

  • Live Temperature : Displays the space temperature measured by the SpaceLogic sensors internal temperature sensor

  • Temperature setpoint : Displays the current setpoint temperature value

  • Custom temperature : Displays the value of the Custom temperature property

The Custom temperature property then allows you to display any value in the temperature range, either by referencing another temperature source (for example, an external temperature sensor) or by setting it manually in the Custom temperature field (warm start retained only).

Advanced Tab

The Display Advanced property tab includes considerably more configuration information. For example, you turn on the Allow menu page property to display all submenus including the Functions menu and any of its submenus. Should you wish, you can enable the temperature setpoint feature by setting the Display object Allow setpoint changes property to On and configuring the Setpoint high limit and Setpoint low limit properties. If colored wall back lighting feedback is required for the room occupant, you can turn on the Enable wall back lighting property.

Note:

Allow setpoint changes, Setpoint high limit, and Setpoint low limit are the types of properties you may wish to drive dynamically based on time of day. For example, using a schedule, you may only allow setpoint changes during the day and not at night. You may also only change the high and low limits for the setpoint based on whether you are in the heating or cooling season.

In addition, you can use the Occupancy override icon property and its Command and State options as follows:

  • Command : When occupied, the house is empty. When clicked, the Command to vacate or unoccupy is sent.

    When unoccupied, the house displays with a person inside. When clicked, the Command to occupy is sent.

  • State : When the house displays with a person inside, it indicates the current state is occupied. When clicked, the State command to unoccupy is sent.

    When unoccupied, the house is empty to indicate its current state. When clicked, the State command to occupy is sent.

Finally, you can enable lighting and blind control functions using the Display object Allow light control and Allow blind control properties. Within the light function, you can toggle on and off or set a percentage to control the intensity of the lights using the Lighting mode property. Similarly, you can you can toggle on and off or set a percentage to control the blind louver sub-function using the Blind control mode property.

Light and Blind Control Tab

For more granular control, you can use the Light and Blind Control tab to specify the 4 supported light groups, and the blind position and angle for the 12 supported blind groups in the SpaceLogic Sensor. You can also use the Light forced disable and Blind forced disable properties as an override or a forced disable.

Light and Blind Configuration Tab

In this tab, you can enter the Default light group or Default blind group value corresponding to the Light and Blind Control tab Light 1-4 level and Blind 1-12 position properties. For example, if you select Default light group or Default blind group equals 1, you direct the Remote Control to affect the Light 1 level and the Blind 1 angle and Blind 1 position properties.

Button and Scene Configuration Tab

The Display Button and Scene Configuration property tab allows you to select from the available functions or scenes to program the buttons on the SpaceLogic Sensor display models. You can also select the buttons you wish to display for configured scenes and triggers for each of the scene buttons.

For more information, see Configuring SpaceLogic Sensor Display Properties .

Property Mapping

While the Display property tabs allow you to configure varied SpaceLogic Sensor models with different UI features, not all of the properties apply to each model. Be sure to consider this when configuring the application and binding it to your control programs. The table that follows shows the properties applicable to each unit.
