UNIT SWITCH ON/OFF


The unit can be switched on in the following ways:
ON

LOCAL mode via keypad: unit is controlled with the OFF pushbutton (the
first time it is pressed, the unit starts; the second time, it switches off).
Audible feedback tells you that the ON/OFF key has actually been pressed.
The controller commands compressor start so that the units on and off
cycles are not too close together (no more than 6 starts an hour). Hence the
compressors start may be delayed after the ON/OFF key is pressed.
The units new state is stored. When power is restored, the unit returns to
the state it was in before the power was cut, meaning it will restart if it was
running at the time.

ACCESS LEVELS
What forms appear depends on the chosen configuration (e.g.: forms relating to the hour-meter for heating
elements do not appear if the unit is not fitted with said elements).
User interaction with the microprocessor is based on 3 levels:
1. CONSULTING MODE consisting in displaying parameters and reading the following data:
current time and date (only if system features a clock card);
environmental conditions;
values measured by sensors connected to system;
operating parameter set points;
logged alarm events (with time and date of event only if system features a clock card).

2. OPERATING PARAMETERS PROGRAMMING MODE, via which you can edit settings for:

: thresholds for the number of hours of operation accumulated by individual components at which
servicing is requested;

: alarm addressing;

: clock/calendar and time bands;

: operating parameters;

: parameters for remote controls, local area network, supervision and rotation between units.

This level is accessible with the "SETTINGS" password.

3. CONFIGURATION PARAMETERS and MANUAL CONTROL PROGRAMMING MODE, via which the units
various components can be run manually (regardless of environmental conditions) and the following operations
performed:

I/O

: setting unit type and configuring devices connected, editing passwords, operations on data in the
microprocessors memory;

This level is only accessible by entering the "CONFIGURATIONS"/"SERVICE" password contained


in the sealed envelope supplied with this instruction manual intended for the head of maintenance.

PROGRAMME VERSION
By pressing the
key, you can view the version of the control programme
contained in the Flash EPROM.
This information is essential when you want to add a new unit to a group of units
connected in a Local Area Network as all programmes of units connected with
each other in a LAN must have the same version. When contacting a service
centre, it is important to quote the version of the control programme contained in
the Flash EPROM accurately.

SPECIAL FEATURES
#

In some programme versions, pressing the


key displays a number of special
features tailored to the customers specifications.
Special features, where included, may be illustrated in the APPENDIX.

HOUR-METER READING AND PROGRAMMING


This part of the programme is used to determine service intervals for the units components: when the device in
question exceeds the hours of operation threshold indicated, the microprocessor reports the service request by
activating the alarm condition and sending the SERV message up on the main form.
There are also two forms featuring the number of times the compressor starts (with the option of resetting the
count).
The forms give the number of hours accumulated and operation thresholds. To edit limits and/or reset the hourmeter, you must call up the subroutine in programming mode.
The functions regard the following unit components:
1. Compressors;
2. Water circulation pumps;
3. Compressors starting number;
4. Command manual Defrost circuit;

HARDWARE CONFIGURATION
The unit control programme needs to be configured, i.e. adapted to the unit it is installed in. During this stage, you
must define all elements making up the unit that the microprocessor will be required to control. This operation is
generally only required when the controller is installed actually on the unit, in which case, therefore, it is performed
at the factory during final testing. Nonetheless, configuration may be required as a result of later changes made to
the unit.
Consequently, forms concerning configuration appear in English and are intended for use by service engineers
only.

In the diagram shown below, an example is shown where unit 1 is in stand-by and units 2 and 3 are running and
connected with intelligent free-cooling. If the external temperature is able to activate free-cooling, the control
system of the units running controls the start-up of the fans of the unit in stand-by (1) and the start-up of the freecooling pump (C) of the units which are running (2 and 3). In this way the water is sent to all of the available freecooling coils.

SCREEN 76 ANTI-FREEZE FUNCTION


This Screen gives the choice of activating the circulation pump or not through the
free-cooling coils in anti-freeze operation. If this function is activated in the standby unit, the FC pump is switched on as soon as the external temperature falls
below 4,5C; it turns off when it rises above 5.5C.
N.B.: Only a correct mix of glycol ensures that the coils do not freeze if the
external temperature falls below zero: the function indicated cannot guarantee the
integrity of the coil, above all in freezing temperatures.

Screen 150 concerns initial transient behaviour and gives you the option of setting:
length of delay before the unit restarts after a power cut (POWER ON
DELAY) - it is required to prevent simultaneous starts in multiple installations;
In LAN-connected units, a progressive start sequence (unit 1, unit 2, ) is run
automatically, with 5-second intervals between one unit and the next.
length of time between the unit switching on and control starting (START
TRANS.) - this is the initial period deemed necessary to give the control
system time to stabilize.
During this period, the FS water flow-switch reading is also disregarded. This
allows the unit to start without generating the "No waterflow" alarm, especially
in units with a motorized damper.
delay - from when the unit starts - before environmental condition alarms are
reported (T. Al Delay).
Screen 151 allows the anti-hunting time constant to be set to avoid excessive
differences in temperature. The greater the heat inertia of the room being airconditioned, the greater this value must be.

MANUAL CONTROL
During regular operation, all components the unit is fitted with are managed automatically. Nonetheless, to make
maintenance and adjusting work easier, or if there is an emergency, individual components can be switched on
using the manual override feature, regardless of the control process.
In particular, it is possible to:
switch the unit on/off in manual mode
switch the compressors on/off
swap the two pumps over
switch on /off the FC pump
control the ramp for the fans modulating control.
The safety devices are also activated during manual operation.
To edit parameter values, you must call up the "MANUAL CONTROL" subroutine from the "HARDWARE" menu

UNITS REMOTE CONTROL


As an alternative, the unit can be started and stopped by means of:
1. a remote contact (or "remote control");
2. a "supervision system" connected to the microprocessor with a serial cable.
The microprocessor nonetheless retains control of the units resources.
ON/OFF VIA REMOTE CONTACT: the closing of a remote contact is responsible for starting the unit. The N.O.
contact is voltage-free and connected to the master card (see wiring diagram). In units with a standard control
programme, digital input 1 is the one specifically used for the on/off contact.
SUPERVISION SYSTEM: a supervision system exchanges data via a serial cable with the units master card,
which is controlled and monitored from a remote location. An optional Serial Card is available for this purpose,
used to enable optoisolated interfacing with an RS-485 network for data transfer (see manuals for Supervision
Systems).

The Screen 140 you can establish whether the unit is slaved to a remote control.
More specifically, you can set:
the remote on/off command via clean contact (I/O via Contact);
the remote on/off command from a supervision system by means of RS-485
serial line (I/O via Serial). Being mutually exclusive, if the setting is "I/O via
Serial Yes" , the "I/O via Contact" option is automatically disabled.
Moreover, with Screen 140 it is possible to set (only in heat pumps) the

Screen 141 allows the basic parameters to be set (first three lines) for switching
via supervision, i.e.
1. serial address of the unit connected to the serial supervision network
(must match serial address set in supervision programme);
2. data transfer rate (Ser. speed): 1200, 2400, 4800, 9600 and 19200 for
RS-485.
3. protocol type (standard or Modbus).
In addition, the fourth line (should the unit be ready for connection in a Local
Area Network) is for setting the number of units connected in the LAN.
Remember that to prepare the unit for connection in a LAN, it must be
assigned a LAN address other than 0 as indicated in the relevant LAN guide.

UNIT IN LOCAL AREA NETWORK (LAN)


Screen 142 concerns parameters for automatic rotation between running units
and standby units. Via said form, you can determine:
whether to activate this management feature (Yes/No). When automatic rotation
ON

is enabled, you have to press the OFF key on the unit with the lowest address in
the network.
automatic cycle time between one inversion and the next (CYCLE TIME) - if it
has the value zero (" 0 "), the controller runs a test, rotating units at two-minute
intervals.

Automatic rotation can be executed:


on a time basis (based on the above-mentioned cycle-time);
subsequent to a level-2 alarm, i.e. subsequent to an alarm for which AR or BR
has been set in the alarm addressing forms (see relevant section herein).
/

Screen 143 allows the unit operating in rotation to be switched-off, only when the
reserve unit has activated its own water circulation pump.

Screen 144, which is only seen if the local network is configured, allows the
temperature regulation to be set in three different ways:
- Independently: the unit independently controls the water temperature regulation;
- Connected: the unit control carries out the water temperature control by
calculating the average temperature of the units which are operating.
- Cascading: the control carries out an off-set on the regulation set point according
to the units connected in the network therefore allowing the units to be switched
on in succession. Each unit maintains its own regulation timings.
Screen 145, which is only displayed if the local area network is configured, allows
the unit operation to be managed with the mean temperature value measured in
the room or with the "local" value measured just by the sensor inside the unit:
- Mode: Local Unit control is based on temperature value detected by sensors on
the actual air-conditioner.
- Mode: Media Unit control is based on mean temperature value detected by
sensors on active units connected in the local area network.
If the difference between the mean value and its own sensor reading exceeds the
"MEDIA/LOC.DIFF." value (default setting 2C), the controller automatically
switches from "MEAN" mode to "LOCAL" mode.

COOLING SETPOINT (SCREEN 120)


No settings can be made to Screen 120. It gives the delivery water temperature
setpoint to which the unit is referring for control purposes.
The third and fourth line feature a message, where applicable, indicating the origin
of the setpoint value when it deviates from the standard setting:
- Compens. T.ext.: indicates that the setpoint given on the second line is
calculated based on external temperature (based on parameters set in the
forms described further on);
- SetPoint OpT.: indicates that the second setpoint is active by virtue of the
contact at digital input 10 switching;
- Setback Mode SetP.: indicates that the setback mode setpoint is active;
- Active SetP.: indicates that the setpoint is calculated based on the offset read
by analogue input 3 (option only possible if there is no evaporating pressure
sensor connected).
COOLING SETPOINT (SCREEN 121)
Screen 121 allows the main cooling setpoint to be set and, where applicable, the
second setpoint is activated when a contact connected to digital input 10
switches.

HEAT PUMP SETPOINT (SCREEN 122)


Screen 122 only allows the water temperature setpoint in winter mode to be set,

SETBACK MODE
Setback mode, which can be activated or deactivated via the keypad, consists in starting the unit automatically
when it is idle - but powered - based on the setpoint settable for this operating mode.
Basically, setback mode is activated to ensure that environmental conditions are regulated - though in a wider
range - even when the system is off. Hence its activation does not depend on signals coming from remote control
systems, which it takes priority over.
Unit start as a result of setback mode is not considered an alarm condition.
BASIC PARAMETERS (SCREEN 127-127a)
Screen 127 (127a if unit is in its heat pump version) allows the setback mode to

By means of the Screen 110, you can set:
time of day (hours, minutes);
date (day, month, year);
classification of the day of the week.
SETTING TIME BANDS (SCREEN 112-115)
Using this device, you can set times (time bands) for automatic unit starting and
stopping, achieving:
up to 3 on-off cycles a day, each with a start and stop time;
a weekly cycle with different daily cycles split into weekdays N (default setting
from Monday to Friday), Saturdays P (default setting for Saturday, though it can
be used for half-days etc.), and Sundays and holidays F (default setting for
Sunday).
Entering Yes on Screen 112 activates the time band device. Field D on the
STATUS form will read HOUR.
By using Screens 113, 114 and 115 you can programme time cycles - featuring a
start time (ON) and a stop time (OFF) - for normal days (N), Saturdays and preholidays (P), and Sundays and holidays (H).
With the unit idle, the display reads UNIT SWITCHED OFF RESTART AT with
the time and day of the week programmed for the next start.
If you enter 00:00 in both the ON and OFF fields, the cycle is disregarded.
CLASSIFICATION OF DAYS OF THE WEEK (SCREEN 111)
This is automatic, though it can be edited starting from Screen 111; the Screen is
called up when the time band device is activated (Screen 112 - "ENABLE:" YES.)

Events where the hour-meter threshold is exceeded ("SERV.") are not logged and hence not displayed.
In the sequence, the first event displayed is actually the last alarm encountered.
In control circuits featuring a clock card (optional extra), the data and time the alarm occurred are associated with
each alarm event logged.
DESCRIPTION OF ALARM EVENTS
All possible alarm messages that can be displayed on the user terminal are given below.
General information on solving the problem is given on the last two lines of the display for alarms that are still
active only (i.e. not for alarms that have been logged).
INCORRECT PHASE SEQUENCE ALARM
The SCROLL compressor must rotate the planned way or efficiency will be lost.
The mains phase sequence may call for a direction of rotation other than the
envisaged one in units with a three-phase power supply only. In this case, as soon
as the unit is powered, the microprocessor immediately goes into an alarm state,
impeding any other manoeuvre.
In this case, disconnect the units power supply and swap two of the supply
phases over.

PART II: LOCAL NETWORK


GENERAL INFORMATION AND DEFINITIONS
1. Several air conditioners installed in the same room or several liquid chillers connected in parallel in the same
system can be managed by connecting them to a local network.
2. The number of connected units depends on the programme managing the network, stored in the Flash Eprom
memory.
3. Units in a network can be connected at a max. 500 metres.
4. All the units connected to the network must have the same programme version on the Flash Memory on the
board.
5. A terminal can be configured as private or shared.
a private terminal shows the status of the single unit connected to it by a telephone cable;
a shared terminal shows the status of all the units connected to the network.
6. Each board can talk to 3 terminals at the most; there are usually no more than two in normal operating
conditions: one fitted in the unit and one possibly in a remote location.

Fig. 1.
Alarm signals always have priority over the terminal, even if the parameters of another unit are being viewed when
the alarm is triggered.

Fig. 2.
7. To communicate on the local network, the units must be configured so that each of them can convey the
information necessary to operate properly.
To achieve this, the separate units must first be numbered progressively (1,2,3,...10) and then the various
terminals and LAN boards correctly addressed to them. The electrical connections must also be made, step by
step, as described below.

MOST COMMON pLAN NETWORK CONFIGURATIONS


1. Up to 10 units connected to the network with a single terminal.

Fig. 3.
In this configuration, should power fail in the first unit, the terminal would close down. It would therefore not be
possible to read any information regarding the units in the network. However, the other units in the network would
continue to operate normally.
2. Up to 10 units each with its own terminal.

Fig. 4.
3. Up to 10 units with a single shared remote terminal.

Fig. 5.

pLAN CONNECTION BETWEEN UpCO BOARDS


In figure 6, a simple parallel connection is shown for more than one UpCO boards of the pLAN network, using a
shielded cable with two twisted pairs and an internal screen. The cable is connected to all of the boards through the
J11 terminal respecting the indicated polarity.

REMOTE TERMINAL CONNECTIONS

IMPORTANT WARNINGS
Electrical connections must be carried out when the unit is switched off and unplugged.
The network can be configured differently depending on the maximum distance of the board and remote terminal
connections; it may be necessary to use a T shunt TCONN6J (as shown in Fig. 8) to connect the remote terminal
to the main board.

If both of the pin-strip jumpers are between 2 and 3, the passage of the current is interrupted between the
connectors which are separated by a dashed line. If power is needed to be supplied to all of the connectors, both of
the jumpers must be between 1 and 2.
The 0 terminal is support terminal which can be used to connect the screen to the earth of the shielded cable; the
T derivative may however be connected to a metallic part of the unit, already connected to the earth.
MAXIMUM DISTANCES BETWEEN THE TERMINAL AND THE BOARD
1. For local terminals the connection with the base board is already made with a 3 pair cable with a 6 way
telephone connector. The length of this cable should not be longer than 3 metres.
2. The remote terminals should be connected to the base board with a telephone cable such as that which has
been described in point 1 for a distance of up to 50 metres. For connections of up to 6 metres the cable can be
supplied, on request, by UNIFLAIR SpA.

3. For longer distances, up to a maximum of 200 metres, a screened cable must be used (a twisted pair cable
with a screen AWG24, resistance < 80ohm/M). The cable can be a three or two twisted pair depending on if it
has to transfer power to the terminals.

CABLE FOR LAN AND SUPERVISION CONNECTION


For connection to both LAN and supervision networks, it is advisable to use a cable which has the following
specifications:
Multi-coupled cables with internal flexible conductors made from tin plated copper (AWG 22/7), insulated with
polypropylene, singularly coupled, screened with aluminium/polyester tape + continuity wire in tin plated copper
(AWG 24/7) connected on a common axis to reduce the diameter and protected by an external sheath in PVC.

EXAMPLE OF A CONNECTION TO THE REMOTE


TERMINAL FROM THE BOARD
In this configuration it is necessary to:
1. use the two TCONN6J 'T' joints: one installed on the unit and one near the remote terminal;
2. use a three pair screened cable for two, so that the remote terminal is also supplied by the board of unit 1 to
which it is connected by the TCONN6J;
3. place the ferrite near the terminal in order to reduce the possibility of electromagnetic disturbances.

CONFIGURATION OF THE TERMINAL AND THE UpCO


BOARD ADDRESSING THE LOCAL NETWORK
Before carrying out the configuration of the addresses, it is advised that the LAN connection between the boards
should be checked as well as the connection with the remote or shared terminal and the electric supply
connections of the unit.
It is possible to configure the address of the terminal only after having connected it to the power supply by using
the RJ11 telephone connector. To enter in configuration mode press the UP, ENTER and DOWN keys at the same
time for at least 5 seconds (these keys are present on all versions); the mask shown in Fig. 11 will be displayed
with a flashing curser in the left hand top corner:

To modify the address of the terminal (display address settings) press the ENTER key once and the curser
will move to the address field (nn).
By using the UP and DOWN keys, select the desired value and press ENTER to confirm. If the selected
value is different from that previously memorized in the mask in fig.12 will appear and the new value will be
memorized in the permanent memory of the display.

If 0 is entered as a value in the nn field, the terminal will communicate with the UpCO board using the point-point
protocol (not pLAN) and the field XX will disappear since it has no meaning.

UpCO: assigning the list of private and shared terminals


If it is necessary at this point to modify the list of terminals associate to each single UpCO board, the following
procedure should be carried out:
enter in the configuration mode using the UP ENTER and DOWN keys as described in the previous paragraph;
press the ENTER key until the curser is positioned in the XX field (I/O board address) Fig. 11;
Use the UP and DOWN keys to choose the address of the desired UpCO board. The values which can be
selected will be only those of the UpCO boards which are effectively on line. If the pLAN network is not working
correctly, or if there are no UpCO boards connected, it will not be possible to modify the field and only will be
shown;
Pressing the key again will display the sequence of masks as shown in Fig. 13;
The ENTER key moves the cursor from one field to another and the UP and DOWN keys change the value of the
chosen field.
The Pxx field: this shows the address of the selected board; in the example in fig. 13, P01 has been selected. To
exit from the configuration procedure and memorize the data, select the OK ? field and set it to YES and then
press ENTER to confirm.
The fields in the Adr column represent the addresses of the terminals associated with the UpCO board, address
11 for the local terminal and 32 for the shared terminal, while the column Priv/Shared indicates the type of terminal.
Warning: the terminals of the MP20 line cannot be configured as Sp (shared printer) as they do not have a printer
output.
If the terminal remains inactive for more than 30 seconds (no key has been pressed) it exits automatically from the
configuration procedure without memorizing any eventual changes.

LAN PARAMETER CONFIGURATION


After having carried out the configuration of the remote and shared user terminals, the operating parameters of the
LAN network must be set. This must only be carried out on the unit with the address LAN1, because the
information will automatically be passed on to the other units which are connected.
The required settings are inside the Remote Control Parameters Menu accessed by pressing the keys
some of the information for the required settings is described below.

temperature value measured from the active units connected in the local
network or with the local value measured by the sensor present inside the
unit.
Method: Local Value: control of the unit is entrusted to the
temperature values read by the sensor present on the air
conditioner;
Method: Average Value: control of the unit is entrusted to the
average temperature read by the sensor present on the active
units connected in the local network. If the difference between the
average value and the reading of the sensor itself is more than
the AVERAGE/LOC.DIFF. value, the control will automatically
move from AVERAGE to LOCAL.
NOTE: This setting is not passed on to the other units, so it needs to be
set individually on each unit.
