Networking
This section of the manual provides a quick reference to information for setting up
and networking the Liebert Systems supplied with the iCOM control. Systems
supplied with the iCOM control can be interconnected to create a private network for
communications and control operations. There are several key factors that must be
known and considered to first setup a network and then to use the networking
programs.
The following describes the Liebert control default settings, terminology, and
descriptions of functions and features.

Things you should know:
iCOM Control Default Settings and Ranges:
z Large Display Default Settings:
– IP: 192.168.254.003
– Netmask: 255.255.255.000
– Gateway: 000.000.000.000
z

Control Board Default Settings:
– IP: 192.168.254.001
– Netmask: 255.255.255.000
– Gateway: 000.000.000.000

z The U2U Address Default Setting and Range:
– Large Display: 33 (range: 33 - 64)
– Control Boards: 1 (range: 1 - 32)
z Number of Units Connected Default Setting and Range:
– 1 (range: 1 – 32)
z Teamwork Default Setting and Choices:
– No (choices: 1 or 2)
iCOM Terminology
z PAB: Designation for the Large Display Board (Firmware)
(earlier versions were designated LBB)
z cdl: Designation for the Large Display Board (Hardware)
z PAL: Designation for the Large Control Board (Firmware)
(earlier versions were designated LBL)
z gcl: Designation for the Large Control Board (Hardware)

Network Basics
z The Liebert iCOM Control Network is a Class C Private Network and will use
the 192.168.254.000 to 192.168.254.255 series of static IP addresses.
z The Liebert iCOM Control Network has nothing to do with the local building or
owner network.
z The Liebert iCOM Control Network can only be attached to the local building
or owner network by using a Liebert WEB Card or Liebert 485 Card installed
the Liebert Intellislot.
z To be able to configure a host for communicating on an IP network, at least 3
pieces of information are absolutely mandatory:

The IP addresses are to uniquely identify the host (at least within the
scope of the LAN).


The Netmask addresses are to allow for the host to identify which other
hosts are connected directly to its IP subnet.

The Default Gateway addresses are to allow for the host to direct
messages to a router that are not intended for the local IP subnet.

z A series of basic rules must be followed to connect and program the units for
this private iCOM Network. Here are some of the rules to be followed.
iCOM Basic Programming for a Network….
z By default, each iCOM unit will try to establish a connection with other iCOM
units in the same IP address subnet in order to create a group.
z

Whether or not this group of units will then act as a system depends on
certain iCOM application parameters, the group of iCOM units needs to be
programmed in a specific “order”.

z Small Displays use CAN connections only. Small Displays do not have a
Network View or an IP Address.
z Small Displays are networked with a CAT 5 crossover cable directly connected
between large control board of each unit. Only two (2) units can be networked
using this arrangement.

27

iCOM Where to Save Manual Rev. 07-06
z All Large Displays and Control Boards will use a CAT 5 or greater straight
through (patch) cable to connect to the switch when networked.
z An IP address number will be used to identify each receiver / sender of
information. Each large control board and each large display must have their
own individual IP Address.
z Each set of boards must be set up individually, then connected to the network
switch and checked before the next set of boards are connected to the switch.
Connect the next set of boards to the switch one at a time and verify
communications through the switch. Start with the last unit in group.

To locate the Network menu program selection in the control:
z Simply navigate the display by pressing
▼ Down to move from System screen to Unit screen then,
▼ Down to move from the Unit screen to the User Menu screen then,
► Right to move from User Menu screen to the Service Menu screen.
z Now press the Enter Key to highlight the Setpoints icon. Using the right
►and down ▼arrow keys navigate to Network icon and press the Enter key
to select.
z These parameters will be designated as the S800 series of parameters.
z In the network parameters view there are two screens in each set of pages.
The first set of pages are for the Large Display (called System Views with the
firmware designation PAB). The second set of pages are for the unit Control
Board (called Unit Views with the firmware designation PAL). The user selects
the ▼ or ▲ arrow keys for page 1 or 2 of the Large Display (PAB) and ►
right arrow key to get to the Large Control Board (PAL) then the▼ or ▲ arrow
keys to access page 1 or 2. Pressing the left ◄ arrow key will return the
screens to return to the Display.

The Plan for Networking
z For “iCOM System Networks” the room and equipment lay out is critical for the
type of program selected for functionally and…...


Unit locations (loads, air flow, etc)
Unit name and number designations (identity)
Unit configurations (which type of programs)

Basic Rules to Apply
z Multi-zones
– No Teamwork
z Balanced Loads – Small room
– Teamwork 1
z Unbalanced Loads – Large room
– Teamwork 2

30

iCOM Where to Save Manual Rev. 07-06

Use as your Guide
The Plan
z Each unit that is to be connected into the network requires a Read and
Record Form be completed prior to making any program changes in the
controls. All programmed parameters located in the User, Service and
Advanced Menus must be recorded.
z A blank Multi-Unit Setup Chart must be completed for the planned number of
units to be connected into the network. This plan will be used to identify the
numerically identify the units, list each new IP Address , and Unit-2-Unit (U2U)
Address.
z Remember the floor plan is the key. All units must be named for correct
operation when selecting the programs for networking.

31

iCOM Where to Save Manual Rev. 07-06

Teamwork Operation Guide
z All Networked units will run in the same Teamwork Mode (No Teamwork,
Mode 1 or Mode 2).
z No auto changeover from TW mode to mode
z Cascade brings the units on/off as the Temperature or Humidity goes up/down
z Teamwork 1 only cascades standby units
z Teamwork 1 – Alarms in operational units can activate the standby units
z Teamwork 1
– Autoset controls the settings
– More than two units must use integration
z Teamwork: No or TW 1 or TW2
– Uses standard settings for Temperature/Humidity
• Autoset adjusts the proportional band (TW 1)
• Autoset will not adjust the proportional band (No TW or TW 2)
– No Teamwork (no shared values)
• Standby – Rotation allowed (no Cascading)
– Teamwork 1 (shared values)
• Unit #1 determines the operational requirements (unit numbering
key)
• Standby - Rotation
• Cascade
– Teamwork 2 (shared values)
• Most demanding operational request determines the operational
requirements (unit numbering key)
• Opposite operational functions prevented (stops Fighting)
• Standby – Rotation allowed (no Cascading)
– System Deviation
• System T/H values compared to system setpoint and
proportional band (all values found in system screen)
• Unit #1 calculates deviation. (0 - 100%)
– Proportional Band (relative part distribution)
• Full band divided by number of available units.
• 2 units: Unit #1 operates in 1-50% (first half) of the proportional
band, Unit #2 operates in 51 – 100% (second half) of the
proportional band
• Applies to all functions – Cooling, Heating, Humidification and
Dehumidification.
– Changing Setpoints, Proportional Band or Dead Band will reset the
shared parameters.

32

iCOM Where to Save Manual Rev. 07-06

Autoset will control the proportional band if enabled in Teamwork 1.
Cascading
• 2 units standby + cascade
• First unit is 1 - 50% and second unit is 51 - 100%
• Standby unit waiting for an alarm or additional requirement
• As the need for an additional function is required the standby will
come on and start fan with load. (Minimum run time is 4 hours for
a cascade unit)
• T/H of cascade unit not shared for system average

– Network units have same set points but not P-Band or D-band
– Networked units have no magic override if a unit is locked out
– If the switch used in the network fails all units will run in normal single
unit mode
– Diagnostics of networking hardware and system require special tools.
z Networking and troubleshooting requires a good understanding of many
details and requires practice to get it right the first time.

Preparing for Networking
Steps:
1. Become familiar with the room layout and unit placement.
2. Determine total number of units to be networked.
3. Define control programs and method(s) to be used – lead./.lag, rotation,
groups, teamwork mode, cascade.
4. Determine U2U configurations to be used.
5. Determine number and location of network switches and power requirements.
6. Determine number of patch cables to be used and lengths.
7. Make network wiring connections to unit control boards and large displays.
8. Review unit Control Board and Large Display Setup parameters:
• Define IP Address
• Define Netmask Number
• Define Gateway Number
• Define U2U Address
• More
9. Create a network setup sheet (map) to document how each unit is
programmed and connected (use labels).

37

Warning: All parameters and variables changed must be saved in
the “Network” screen – System View and Unit Views or information
will be lost. The unit must be turned off the main power and back on
with the main power and then the start switch to reboot the
computers (Display and Control Board) in the units. See attached
