Manually Verifying the Direction of Damper Rotation

You can manually verify the direction of damper rotation to determine whether the actuator rotates clockwise or counterclockwise to open.

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 eCommission application

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 flow balance process

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.

Configure air balancing setpoints

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 .

Balance at the selected flow 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 .

Perform optional tasks as needed

After flow balancing the MP-V controller, you can perform other tasks as needed:

  • 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.

    For more information, see Using Controller List Creator .

To manually verify the direction of damper rotation
  1. In the eCommission application, in the Device List view, select the MP-V controller to be checked.

    Note:

    The Device List view has filters that allow you to easily find and select the controller:

    • If you are logged in as a Flow Balancer, the device list is automatically filtered to show only MP-V controllers.

    • If you are logged in as a Technician, you can sort the list of discovered devices by controller model.

  2. Tap Verify rotation in the Air Balancing menu and then follow the prompts.

  3. To monitor the rotation in the Current Status pane, tap the information icon

     
    action_zoom_plus_stroke
    .

  4. If an error message is displayed during rotation check, perform a manual check.

    For more information, see Error Message is Displayed During Rotation Check of MP-V Controller .

  5. Upon completing the manual checks, repeat steps 2 and 3.

The MP-V controller's rotation direction to open the damper is manually verified. Next, on the Manual checkout view, you continue manual checkout as needed
