Figure 1: Typical TEC Zoning Control System Installed on a Single MS/TP Bus

The TEC Zoning Control System features a fully scalable network architecture
using BACnet MS/TP communication capability that operates with a supervisory
controller, or it can operate as a stand-alone system. This cost-effective zoning
control system provides efficient space temperature control for constant volume,
pressure-dependent systems in multi-zone heating and cooling applications.
The TEC Zoning Control System uses standard BACnet objects for automatic
self-binding zone-controller-to-rooftop-controller configuration, communicating
in a peer-to-peer manner. Pre-configured sequences reduce the need for
programming and eliminate flash downloading. Plain text menus, backlit display,
and multiple interface keys make setup and operation quick and easy.

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

Figure 1 illustrates a typical TEC Zoning Control System installed on a


single MS/TP Bus. This installation consists of multiple TEC2647Z-2 or
TEC2647Z-2+PIR (onboard occupancy sensor) Zone Controllers, each controlling
a single zone damper; and a TEC2664Z-2 Rooftop Controller controlling a rooftop
unit. Optionally, the MS/TP Bus can be wired to a supervisory controller to
provide centralized monitoring and control of the system.
IMPORTANT: The TEC Zoning Control System is intended to provide an
input to equipment under normal operating conditions. Where failure or
malfunction of the zoning control system could lead to personal injury or
property damage to the controlled equipment or other property, additional
precautions must be designed into the zoning control system. Incorporate and
maintain other devices, such as supervisory or alarm systems or safety or limit
controls, intended to warn of or protect against failure or malfunction of the
zoning control system.

System Overview and Architecture


The TEC Zoning Control System is comprised of two terminal equipment
controller types, including:

TEC2647Z-2 or TEC2647Z-2+PIR Zone Controller

TEC2664Z-2 Rooftop Controller

Combined, this system delivers a simple yet efficient way to operate and control
pressure-dependent Variable Air Volume (VAV) zones with rooftop units.
System control implementation is based on demand. The system is designed to
work with small- to medium-sized staged heating and cooling rooftop unit
equipment (2 to 20 tons typical).
A local BACnet MS/TP Bus between all devices provides effective
communication and smooth data exchange of all required information between the
zone controllers and the rooftop controllers for proper system operation.
Integration into any BACnet supervision system is seamless.
The zone controller and rooftop controller feature a backlit Liquid Crystal Display
(LCD) with dedicated function menu buttons for simple user operation. Accurate
temperature control is achieved through a unique, Proportional-Integral (PI)
time-proportioning algorithm that virtually eliminates temperature offset
associated with traditional, differential-based thermostats.
The zone controller is specifically designed for local pressure-dependent VAV
zone control within Johnson Controls zoning system product family. The primary
damper output uses an off-the-shelf, standard 0 to 10 VDC VAV actuator for
control.

Technical Bulletin

The zone controller is available with or without a factory-installed occupancy


sensor cover. The zone controller is also compatible with an accessory
Johnson Controls TEC-7-PIR Occupancy Sensor Cover. A zone controller
equipped with the occupancy sensor cover provides advanced active occupancy
logic that automatically switches occupancy levels from occupied to standby as
required, when motion is sensed. This feature results in incremental energy savings
during scheduled occupied periods when the space is unoccupied, without
sacrificing occupant comfort.
The rooftop controller is specifically designed for equipment control, based on the
demands of the zone. The rooftop controller provides single- or multi-stage control
of heating and cooling equipment, such as rooftop and self-contained units used in
zoning control systems. The rooftop controller includes an extra digital input that
monitors filter status, or it can be used as a general-purpose service indicator. A
Single-Pole, Single-Throw (SPST) auxiliary contact controls lighting, or it can be
used to disable the rooftop controller economizer function during unoccupied
periods. Also included is a discharge air sensor input. Proportional input and
output static pressure logic is integrated into the rooftop controller design, to
provide bypass damper control.
The TEC Zoning Control System requires a minimum of a single zone controller
and a single rooftop controller to operate properly. A typical application includes
multiple zone controllers addressed to a single rooftop controller.
The following is required for proper zone controller operation, and must be
provided separately:

24 VAC power supply, dedicated to the zone(s)

analog 0 to 10 VDC pressure-dependent electric actuator

terminal reheat (if required by the design)

proper wiring of all components, per the installation instructions

proper network wires fed for each device

The following is required for proper rooftop controller operation, and must be
provided separately:

24 VAC power supply, typically taken directly from the rooftop unit power
supply (C and RC)

outdoor air sensor

supply air duct sensor

return air duct sensor

0 to 5 VDC static pressure sensor/transducer

analog 0 to 10 VDC bypass damper actuator (spring return or non-spring


return)

proper wiring of all components, per the installation instructions

proper network wiring

Example: A typical installation may include three rooftop controllers, controlling


28 zones, for a total of 31 nodes (individual Comm addresses). Rooftop controller
No. 1 would have 9 zones under its command, rooftop controller No. 2 would also
have 9 zones under its command, and rooftop controller No. 3 would have
10 zones under its command.

Initial Design Criteria Considerations


The designer and installer of the TEC Zoning Control System must:

size the installed equipment for the properly calculated heating and/or cooling
peak loads. Oversizing the installed capacity more than what is required is not
advantageous, as it simply leads to short cycling of the equipment during small
load periods.

properly size and lay out the duct work (including the bypass damper) in
accordance with local, national, and regional regulations. The TEC Zoning
Control System is a low static pressure system, and it must be designed so the
failure of the bypass damper subsystem does not cause failure of the ducts.

properly size the capacity of the zone versus its true requirements. Square
footage calculations can cause the installed total deliverable load to be
insufficient for the actual use of an area (for example, a conference room,
computer room, or a cafeteria).

Although the TEC Zoning Control System does not correct for a wrong initial
mechanical layout and associated load calculations, the control system does
dramatically help deliver the load required by voting zones. The control system
accomplishes the delivery by appropriately distributing the total available capacity
of the installed equipment to the required voting zones. If the equipment is
undersized for the peak load, the control system distributes the available capacity
according to the priorities requested, to improve the comfort level of the majority
of zones.
Proper planning and design plays a critical role in getting an installation up and
running faster, and with fewer service calls during the initial occupancy period.

Scalability and Limitations


The TEC Zoning Control System is fully scalable in terms of the number of zone
controllers and rooftop controllers used on the same MS/TP Communications Bus.
For more details on wiring to the MS/TP Bus, refer to the MS/TP Communications
Bus Technical Bulletin (LIT-12011034).

Local Zone Terminal Reheat


The need for terminal reheat depends on the specific application. As a general rule,
including terminal reheat in a VAV system always results in better occupancy
comfort; however, it may not be practical from a cost standpoint or for regional
load requirements. System designs vary widely from north to south and east to
west because of regional peak load requirements.

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

In colder climates, VAV system heating operation without terminal reheat typically
results in colder walls on the outer perimeter of the zone. Although the dry bulb
temperature of the zone is well maintained, occupants may be uncomfortable
simply because of the lower outer wall temperature. In addition, heating delivery
from the ceiling in outside zones is not as efficient as heating delivery directly
where the losses occur, such as when a perimeter electric baseboard or a perimeter
hydronic baseboard is used.
In regions where the heating load is low and only required for a short period of the
year, a properly sized VAV system can deliver the required heating comfort
without the use of terminal reheat. Ideally, the design of the ductwork and area
diffusers should be the most efficient arrangement possible, with the heating
delivery concentrated close to the outer walls of the zone.
In problematic situations where efficient heating delivery is an issue, fan powered
VAV systems can reduce occupancy discomfort by providing a constant flow to the
zones, to maximize heating delivery.

Exception Areas
An office installation typically requires that a single VAV system service multiple
areas or zones. These areas are likely a mix of internal and external zones. Verify
the requirements of each zone to determine a true total peak load before
committing to a final VAV system design and size.
It may be necessary to intentionally oversize or undersize the VAV system to meet
the daily load demands. The following are examples where oversizing may be
required:

areas with large windows that are exposed to the sun for long periods of time

conference rooms

cafeterias

areas with vending machines

areas with extra lighting

areas with computers, photocopiers, and other electronic office equipment

Areas such as computer rooms, kitchens, or large meeting rooms may require an
independent VAV system, and should not be included with other zones that are
networked to the rooftop controller. Certain critical areas may call for cooling all
year long and, based on the VAV system settings, could provide proper occupancy
comfort for only a portion of the year. Knowing in advance the critical areas of the
building, and designing for these zones appropriately, results in a more
comfortable environment for all building occupants.

Bypass Damper Design Rules


A bypass damper is an airflow regulating device installed between the supply and
return air ducts. The bypass damper automatically opens and bypasses the supply
air normally delivered to the zone, directly from the supply to the return, as a result
of a pressure rise when the VAV zone dampers close. The bypass damper is
normally sized to pass at least 70 to 80% of the nominal airflow of the rooftop
controller.
To determine if the bypass damper is sized properly, assume that all VAV zone
dampers are closed to the minimum position. The bypass damper should be large
enough to recirculate all of the airflow from the rooftop controller, minus the
airflow set by the minimum positions at the zones.

Backlit LCD

The zone controller includes a two-line, eight-character backlit display. Low-level


backlighting is present during normal operation and brightens when any user
interface key is pressed. The backlight returns to low level when the zone
controller is left unattended for 45 seconds.
Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs)

Two LEDs are included to show a call for heating or a call for cooling:

The HEAT LED is on when heating or reheat is on.

The COOL LED is on when cooling is on.

Passive Infrared (PIR) Onboard Occupancy Sensor (TEC2647Z-2+PIR Model)

The PIR onboard occupancy sensor allows for automatic switching between fully
adjustable occupied and standby temperature setpoints without user interaction.
This feature results in incremental energy savings during scheduled occupied
periods when the space is unoccupied.
Status Display Menu

The Status Display Menu appears during normal zone controller operation. This
menu continuously scrolls through the following parameters:

Room Temperature

Occupancy Status
(Occupied/Unoccupied/Standby/Override)

Outside Temperature (Installation of an outside air temperature sensor allows


the H lock and C lock parameters of the rooftop controller to discontinue
heating or cooling operation in response to the outside air temperature. If an
outside air temperature sensor is not installed, an ambiguous outside air
temperature displays on the zone controller unless its MenuScro parameter is
set to off.)

Note: An option is available within the Installer Configuration Menu to lock out
the scrolling display and show only the Room Temperature parameter.
PIR Onboard Occupancy Sensor Operation (TEC2647Z-2+PIR Model)

The zone controller provides advanced occupancy logic when equipped with a
PIR occupancy sensor cover or a remote PIR occupancy sensor attached to BI1.
Note: Set the PIR Func parameter to on as described in Table 2 to enable the
PIR occupancy sensing function.
12

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

The zone controller automatically switches occupancy levels from standby to


occupied as required, when local motion is sensed.
Occupancy sensing is enabled only if a PIR occupancy sensor cover is installed on
the zone controller, or if a remote input is configured as a remote PIR occupancy
sensor (MotionNO or MotionNC) and the PIR Func parameter is set to on as
described in Table 2.
PIR Diagnostic LEDs

The diagnostic LEDs within the zone controller brighten when motion is detected
within the first 30 minutes after the unit is powered up. The diagnostic LEDs do
not light up or brighten after the initial 30-minute powerup period.
Standby Setpoints

The standby setpoints have the same limitations and restrictions as the occupied
and unoccupied setpoints. The standby setpoints reside between the corresponding
occupied and unoccupied setpoint values.

Zone MAC is the unique device address of the zone controller (from 004 to 127) on the MS/TP network.
RTC MAC is the unique device address of the rooftop controller (from 004 to 127) on the MS/TP network.
The standby setpoints are used in the standby mode. The PIR Func parameter must be set to on, or the BI1 parameter
must be set to either MotionNO or MotionNC to enable the standby mode.
The settings for this parameter are valid only if the analog reheat sequences are enabled.
The settings for this parameter can only be enabled if an outside air temperature sensor is connected and ready for
operation.
The MaxHTPos value should never be lower than the Min Pos value; likewise, the MaxHTPos value should never be
higher than the Max Pos value.
The setting for this parameter does not change the PI demand used locally at the zone controller to maintain the setpoint;
instead, it only adjusts the PI demand transferred to the rooftop controller for its highest/average demand calculations.

TEC2647Z-2 and TEC2647Z-2+PIR Zone Controller Operation and


Strategy
The zone controller is designed to control a proportional 0 to 10 VDC modulating
damper actuator, unlike low-end commercial and residential zoning thermostats
that are designed to control two-position (open/closed) damper actuators.
Proportional modulating control enables performance and control sequences that
are much closer to what is normally found in Direct Digital Control (DDC),
application-specific control devices. Proper operation of the zone controllers
requires proper communication between the rooftop controller and its associated
zone controllers.
The data exchange from the zone controllers to the associated rooftop controller
includes:

current Proportional plus Integral (PI) heating demand, whereby the output
value is based on the PI heating weight configuration

current PI cooling demand, whereby the output value is based on the PI cooling
weight configuration

The data exchange from the rooftop controller to the associated zone controllers
includes:

current central system occupancy

current system mode active (hot or cold air being delivered)

outside air temperature

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

21

PIR Onboard Occupancy Sensor (TEC2647Z-2+PIR Model)

The PIR onboard occupancy sensor allows for automatic switching between fully
adjustable occupied and standby temperature setpoints without user interaction.
This feature results in incremental energy savings during scheduled occupied
periods when the space is not being used.
Demand-Based Heating and Cooling System

The system operation determines which zone controllers have heating and cooling
weighted votes used by the associated rooftop controller. The rooftop controller
uses the weighted heating and cooling demand values from selected zones to
determine if heating or cooling action is required for the system.
Internal and external zones are typically serviced from the same rooftop controller.
As a result, the system may be exposed to conflicting mid-season heating and
cooling demands. The conflicting demands are addressed with the heating and
cooling lockouts, based on the outside air temperature at the rooftop controller.
The heating or cooling action at the zone depends on how the rooftop controller
treats and calculates what is delivered to the zones. Many factors influence the
delivery and availability of hot or cold air to satisfy the current zone demand.
Table 3 through Table 5 shows the rooftop controller system mode calculation
based on the highest demand of the zones, the average of the three highest
demands, or the average of the five highest demands.

Table 5 shows that the resulting heat and cool weight used by the rooftop controller
for the five voting zones is different, meaning different heating and cooling action
based on the configuration of the rooftop controller. The heating or cooling action
delivered to the zones also depends on the heating and cooling lockout functions,
which are based on the outside air temperature and the supply air temperature.
Overrides and Zone Controller User Interface Lockouts

Specific functions on each zone controller can be locked out by the local user. This
interface lockout prevents unauthorized inputs to the system, typically in public
areas or other areas where certain interface functions need to be prevented. The
lockout level is accessed via the Lockout parameter in the Installer Configuration
Menu. Simply set the appropriate lockout level for each zone according to the
system requirements. See Table 6 for details regarding the various lockout levels.

Pressing local keys that have their function locked out causes a keypad lock
message to appear on the zone controller display. If a global override is required
for the entire system and all of the zones go into the occupied mode, the override
must be enabled at the rooftop controller. To accomplish this override, use the local
user menu at the rooftop controller or configure the extra digital input for a remote
override button (if it must be installed centrally).
Zone Setpoint Limits

Note that a demand-based heating and cooling system is designed to respond to the
actual local demand of a number of selected zones; this is the case even if the local
demand cannot be met by the central system.
Limit the setpoint adjustments of all zone controllers, especially if they have
demand voting capability at the rooftop controller. Doing so prevents any local
setpoint adjustments from creating heating or cooling lockout conditions at the
rooftop controller, when local setpoints are unattainable. This scenario also
prevents a voting zone controller from having unreasonable authority over the
system.
Example: If a local user sets the current occupied setpoint to 62F (17C), the
PI weighted demand sent by this zone to the rooftop controller is always at its
maximum value.
See Table 7 for recommended local heating and cooling setpoint limits.

Heating and Cooling Weight Zone Selection

For any system to operate properly, carefully determine which zones drive the
system and their weight for demand calculations. The recommendations included
in Table 8 are provided as a general rule, and should be re-evaluated on a per-job
basis depending on the specifics of the system design and layout.

Zones in the System

Choose a practical number of zones per rooftop controller, to allow comfort in all zones.

Consider the following when selecting voting zones:

Not all zones in the system need to be voting zones. Generally, anywhere from
a third to half of the total number of zones in the system should be voting
zones.

For larger installations where internal zones (zones not exposed to an outside
wall) are included in the system, there should be a ratio of approximately four
external voting zones for every one internal voting zone.

Zones selected as voting zones for demand calculations should represent:

areas that are exposed to the highest peak heating and cooling loads.

areas that include a significant portion of the equipment peak load capacity.
For example, if a system has five zones where one of the zones represents
half of the peak load capacity, that zone should be selected as a voting
zone.

areas that are subject to momentary spikes in occupancy (if those zones are
expected to respond during increased occupancy periods). Typical
examples include conference rooms, cafeterias, or other common areas.

Selecting a voting zone that is either undersized or commissioned with


operational flaws and errors may result in erratic system behavior due to
adding total demand that cannot be met.

Consider the following regarding weight parameter values of the voting zones:

26

Internal zones do not affect the heating demand calculation; instead, they only
affect the cooling demand calculation. Internal zones typically call for cooling
during occupied periods, even during the winter months. If the internal zones
ever call for heating, then it is certain that the surrounding external zones are
already in the heating mode.

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

It is possible for an internal zone to be slightly overcooled during peak


summer cooling loads. This situation happens when the rooftop controller
supplies its maximum cooling capacity, and when the volume of cold air
determined by the minimum position of the zone damper during occupied
periods is already providing too much cooling capacity to the internal zone.

It is also possible for an internal zone to be slightly overheated during peak


winter heating loads. This situation happens when the rooftop controller
supplies its maximum heating capacity; and when the volume of hot air
determined by the minimum position of the zone damper during occupied
periods is already providing too much heat, for which the internal zones
rarely need.

External zones considered to be of primary importance should have both their


heating and cooling weight set to 100%.

Zones considered to be of secondary importance may have their weight set to a


lesser value than 100%, to reflect the importance they have in the total voting
demand calculations.

Some zones (for example, an office surrounded by panoramic windows) may


experience problematic behavior while in their peak heating or cooling mode,
due to location, design, and/or degree of exposure. These problematic zones
can have their peak load demand satisfied; however, this usually results in
higher energy costs since some of the other zones in the system are slightly
overheated or overcooled. The installer is responsible for properly identifying
these problematic areas and determining if they should be fully satisfied (at a
certain energy expense) or if they should be left unsatisfied during specific
peak load periods, to reduce energy consumption and for the greater good of
the rest of the zones in the system.
-

Adding many voting zones (including problematic areas) to a rooftop


controller provides greater occupancy comfort at higher energy costs.

Restricting the number of voting zones (including problematic areas) to a


rooftop controller provides energy savings at the expense of occupancy
comfort in some of the zones in the system.

Minimum, Maximum, and Heat Flow Adjustments

Although system balancing can be accomplished using configuration settings


within the zone controller, we recommend installing a balancing damper at the
balancing side takeoff of all zones. A balancing damper reduces excessive airflow
and the noise that goes with it, if the zones and/or associated ductwork are
oversized.
Minimum Position Adjustment (Min Pos Parameter)

This parameter sets the minimum position of the zone damper to deliver the
minimum amount of air to the zone in all conditions. When powered up, the
damper never closes below the minimum position setting.

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

27

Maximum Position Adjustment (Max Pos Parameter)

This parameter sets the maximum position of the zone damper to deliver the
maximum amount of hot or cold air to the zone in all conditions. When powered
up, the damper never opens above the maximum position setting.
Note: Use the Max Pos parameter to set the maximum amount of hot air
delivered to the zone; not the MaxHTPos parameter. See Maximum Heat
Flow Adjustment (MaxHTPos Parameter) on page 28 for a description of
the MaxHTPos parameter.
The Max Pos parameter is also used to set the maximum amount of cold air
delivered to the zone.
Maximum Heat Flow Adjustment (MaxHTPos Parameter)

Many assume the MaxHTPos parameter sets the maximum amount of hot air
delivered to the zone, but that is not a correct assumption. Instead, the Max Pos
parameter sets both the maximum amount of hot air and the maximum amount of
cold air delivered to the zone. See Maximum Position Adjustment
(Max Pos Parameter) on page 28 for a description of the Max Pos parameter.
The MaxHTPos parameter sets the minimum heating position of the zone damper,
to maximize hot airflow on a call for reheat with cold supply air. The MaxHTPos
function is only used if the local reheat configuration (RehtConf parameter) is set
to any value other than (0): None (no local reheat). Table 9 includes the maximum
heat flow adjustments for the various reheat stages and reheat output time bases.

The selected minimum position of the zone damper has a direct impact on the
temperature stability within certain zones. Having a minimum position selected
can produce an overcooling and/or overheating effect. This effect is created by the
minimum position, when the primary air temperature is in the opposite mode than
what the zone currently requires (for example, an internal zone that is calling for
cooling in the winter, while the rooftop controller is supplying hot air for the
external zones).
Depending on the application, setting a minimum position for a zone damper may
be mandatory. Eliminating this minimum position, or at least lowering it to a value
below the standard, may resolve certain system design issues. A good example of
this is an internal zone with a grossly oversized VAV unit.
Balancing the Minimum, Maximum, and Heat Flow Values

To balance the minimum airflow:


1. Set the outside heating lockout value (H lock parameter) at the rooftop
controller to ensure that local system heating is allowed.

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

29

2. Check that the system is in the heating mode. To do so, press the SCROLL
button on the rooftop controller to show the local Zone Sequence = Heat
prompt.
3. Adjust the appropriate setpoints to ensure that the voting zones call for heating.
4. Adjust the local setpoint of the currently balanced zone controller to its
minimum value (for example, 60F [16C] or at least 7 to 8F [3.5 to 4C]
lower than the current room temperature), to drive the zone damper to its
minimum position.
5. Set the Min Pos parameter to the desired value, as required to balance the
minimum airflow.
To balance the maximum airflow:
1. Set the outside heating lockout value (H lock parameter) at the rooftop
controller to ensure that local system heating is allowed.
2. Check that the system is in the heating mode. To do so, press the SCROLL
button on the rooftop controller to show the local Zone Sequence = Heat
prompt.
3. Adjust the appropriate setpoints to ensure that the voting zones call for heating.
4. Adjust the local setpoint of the currently balanced zone controller to its
maximum value (for example, 80F [27C] or at least 7 to 8F [3.5 to 4C]
higher than the current room temperature), to drive the zone damper to its
maximum position.
5. Set the Max Pos parameter to the desired value, as required to balance the
maximum airflow.
To balance the maximum heat flow:
1. Set the outside cooling lockout value (C lock parameter) at the rooftop
controller to ensure that local system cooling is allowed.
2. Set the outside reheat lockout value (AO2 OALK or BO5 OALK parameter)
at the zone controller to ensure that local reheat is allowed.
3. Check that the system is in the cooling mode. To do so, press the SCROLL
button on the rooftop controller to show the local Zone Sequence = Cool
prompt.
4. Adjust the appropriate setpoints to ensure that the voting zones call for cooling.
5. Adjust the local setpoint of the currently balanced zone controller to its
maximum value (for example, 80F [27C] or at least 7 to 8F [3.5 to 4C]
higher than the current room temperature), to drive the zone damper to its
minimum position.
6. Set the MaxHTPos parameter to the desired value, as required to balance the
maximum heat flow.

The damper position is never linear and proportional to the airflow in a


pressure-dependent application. Depending on how the zone damper is sized, a
VAV box can be, at best, slightly oversized or slightly undersized. In all instances,
the PI loop of the zone controller compensates to determine the proper damper
position that satisfies the current zone demand. Figure 4 illustrates the relationship
between damper position and airflow for oversized and undersized VAV boxes.

Note: Be certain that the actuator is installed and set up properly so the blades of
the VAV damper can rotate from the fully open to the fully closed position
with no mechanical interference. To accomplish this, use the position
settings on the zone controller.
Terminal Reheat Lockout

It is desirable to lock out the local terminal reheat of the zones during the summer
months when reheat is not required. Locking out the local terminal reheat prevents
calls for local reheat simply based on a configured outside air temperature value.

stages.

TEC2664Z-2 Rooftop Controller Operation and Strategy


Contrary to low-end commercial and residential zone controllers that use
two-position demand and no demand logic to energize heating and cooling, the
TEC2664Z-2 Rooftop Controller uses PI demand to operate heating and cooling
stages. In addition, accurate temperature control at the zones is achieved via a
unique, time-proportioning algorithm that virtually eliminates temperature offset
associated with traditional, differential-based zone controllers. This feature
enables performances and control sequences that are much closer to what is
normally found in DDC application-specific control devices.
The operation of the rooftop controller is directly related to the operation of the
dedicated zone controllers. Although the rooftop controller can operate in a
stand-alone manner if network communication is lost, normal system operation
requires that this network communication is functional.
Data Exchange between the Rooftop Controller and the Zones

Heating and cooling demand is first exchanged from the zone controllers to the
rooftop controller. These output values are based on the PI heating weight
configuration and the PI cooling weight configuration. Each voting zone also
calculates its demand values based on the occupancy mode and setpoints currently
in use: either Unoccupied, Standby, or Occupied.

36

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

The rooftop controller calculates the resulting PI heating and cooling demands
based on the control type configuration (CntrlTyp parameter setting). See
Demand-Based Heating and Cooling System on page 22 for more information.

If the resulting calculated PI heating demand is greater than the resulting


calculated PI cooling demand, then the zone controller sequence is heating.

If the resulting calculated PI cooling demand is greater than the resulting


calculated PI heating demand, then the zone controller sequence is cooling.

If the resulting calculated PI cooling demand is equal to the resulting


calculated PI heating demand, then the zone controller sequence remains in its
latest mode.

Many factors can limit action to the heating and cooling stages, including:

heating and cooling lockout based on the outside air temperature

heating or cooling lockout based on the supply air temperature

heating or cooling lockout based on anti-cycling

fixed 2-minute delay when the rooftop controller toggles between heating and
cooling

The rooftop controller forwards the following data to the zone controllers:

current central system occupancy

current zone sequence required (either hot or cold air delivered to the zone)

outside air temperature

Occupancy and Overrides

The occupancy mode of all the zones in a system is typically dictated by the
rooftop controller schedule. If the schedule output value is unoccupied (as
displayed on the rooftop controller), then the zones in the system are in the
unoccupied mode. If the schedule output value is occupied (as displayed on the
rooftop controller), then the zones in the system are either in the occupied mode or
the standby mode if the local PIR function is used.
It is possible to use a remote schedule via the DI1 parameter with a time clock
input, an occupancy sensor, or from a voltage-free contact. Doing so disables the
local schedule occupancy function to the zones.
Global override for the entire system including all zones is initiated at the rooftop
controller level only. Set the override using the Main User Menu at the rooftop
controller, or by configuring the extra digital input (DI1 parameter) for a remote
override button if it is required to be installed centrally.
Any zone overrides trigger the necessary heating or cooling action for the required
zone only. All other zones in the system that do not require an override remain in
the unoccupied mode.

Rooftop Controller User Interface Lockouts

The rooftop controller can be set to lock out specific functions performed by the
local user. This interface lockout prevents unauthorized inputs to the system,
typically in public areas or other areas where certain interface functions need to be
prevented. The lockout level is accessed via the Lockout parameter in the Installer
Configuration Menu. Simply set the appropriate lockout level for each zone
according to the system requirements. See Table 13 for details regarding the
various lockout levels.

Rooftop Controller Heating and Cooling Supply Air Temperature Lockouts

One problematic aspect of any VAV zoning control system is high heating or
cooling demand when most of the zone dampers are closed. As a result of this
situation, most of the supply air is recirculated through the pressure bypass,
leading to extremely hot or cold supply air conditions.
To prevent high supply air temperatures (specifically with gas heating systems), set
the discharge air high limit temperature (Dis HL parameter) to the required value.

Default: 120.0F/49.0C

Range: 70.0F/21.0C to 150.0F/65.5C

When adjusting the temperature, press the UP/DOWN arrow key to change the
value in 0.5F/0.5C increments; press and hold the UP/DOWN arrow key to
change the value in 5.0F/5.0C increments.

To prevent low supply air temperatures (specifically to guard against coil freeze-up
when a high bypass ratio is in effect), set the discharge air low limit temperature
(Dis LL parameter) to the required value.

Rooftop Controller Heating and Cooling Outside Air Temperature Lockouts

Use the C lock parameter to disable cooling operation in response to the outside air
temperature. Likewise, use the H lock parameter to disable heating operation in
response to the outside air temperature. Both the heating and cooling outside air
temperature lockouts require that an outside air temperature sensor be installed and
connected.
The installer is responsible for setting the rooftop controller mode lockouts
properly to minimize heating and cooling equipment cycling while considering
occupancy comfort. The lockout settings are also dependent on the load
requirements for the specific geographical region:

In cool climate regions, the installer may allow the rooftop controller to deliver
heating up to a 75F (24C) outside air temperature due to the amount of the
time it takes for building mass to heat up when transitioning from a cold night
into a hot, mid-season day.

In warm climate regions, the installer may allow the rooftop controller to
deliver cooling without a cooling mode lockout, while imposing strong
restrictions on the heating side of the system.

Heating and cooling equipment cycling occurs only in the overlapping deadband
between the C lock and H lock parameter settings as illustrated in Figure 5. The
tighter the deadband between these two parameter settings, the less heating and
cooling equipment cycling occurs.

It is possible to adjust the system to completely eliminate heating and cooling


equipment cycling based on the outside air limitations, if this type of system
operation is desired. Figure 6 illustrates two ways to eliminate overlapping
deadband and the associated equipment cycling. Note that eliminating overlapping
deadband may impact the control performance of certain zones during other
periods of system operation.

Seasonal Changeover

Heating and cooling equipment cycling during seasonal changeover is almost


inevitable with a VAV zoning control system, if any degree of occupancy comfort
is to be maintained. A properly set up system delivers comfort to conflicting zone
demands during seasonal changeover by alternating between heating and cooling
at the rooftop controller.
Unwanted heating and cooling switchovers are eliminated by either using and
authorizing terminal reheat, or by limiting the rooftop controller heating and
cooling capacity throughput based on the outside air temperature (H lock and
C lock parameters). Note that limiting the rooftop controller heating and cooling
capacity throughput based on the outside air temperature may impact the control
performance of certain zones in the system, since the required heating or cooling
capacity is no longer available due to the lockout conditions.

40

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

Typically, the number of rooftop controller heating and cooling switchover cycles
during conflicting demand periods is approximately the same as the number of
heating and cooling cycles per hour (Heat cph and Cool cph parameters). The
default for Heat cph and Cool cph is four cycles per hour, meaning two heating
cycles and two cooling cycles within a 1-hour period.
The recorded rooftop controller change in supply temperature and demand
variances is always higher when using the Highest demand control-type operation
versus the Average demand method calculations. Energy consumption is also
higher with the Highest demand control-type operation versus the Average demand
method calculations.
Bypass Damper Control and Operation

The rooftop controller has a built-in static pressure control loop with an analog
0 to 10 VDC bypass damper output. For proper operation, the static pressure
control loop must have a static pressure sensor connected to the static pressure
input (Terminal SP) on the rooftop controller. Typically, the static pressure sensor
probe is installed approximately two-thirds the way down the main ventilation
trunk.
The required static pressure transducer needs to be a voltage type (0 to 5 VDC
input range) with a 24 VAC half-wave (rectifier) power supply. Set the static
pressure transducer range (using the SP range parameter) to one of the following:

(0): 0 in. W.C./0 Pa to 1.5 in. W.C./375 Pa

(1): 0 in. W.C./0 Pa to 2 in. W.C./500 Pa

(2): 0 in. W.C./0 Pa to 3 in. W.C./750 Pa

(3): 0 in. W.C./0 Pa to 4 in. W.C./1,000 Pa

(4): 0 in. W.C./0 Pa to 5 in. W.C./1,250 Pa

Set the static pressure transducer setpoint is using the Pressure parameter. The
default setpoint is 0.8 in. W.C./200 Pa, and is adjustable from 0 in. W.C./0 Pa to
2 in. W.C./500 Pa in 0.1 in. W.C./25 Pa increments.
The static pressure scale automatically changes from inches of water column
(in. W.C.) to Pascals (Pa) when the Units parameter is changed from
(Imp): Fahrenheit/in. W.C. to (Si): Celsius/Pa.
Operation of the static pressure control loop depends on whether the fan is
running. For proper operation of the static pressure control loop, the static pressure
control actuator must be installed properly. When the control signal is 0 VDC, the
static pressure damper is fully closed with no air recirculating from the supply to
the return. Conversely, when the control signal is 10 VDC, the static pressure
damper is fully open with maximum air recirculating from the supply to the return.

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

41

When the fan output is off (Terminal G), the static pressure control loop is also off
and the bypass damper is fully open to the 10 VDC output. This condition
minimizes the air pressure related noise during initial fan startup. Be aware that the
fan is always on during occupied periods, and that it only cycles on demand with
the heating and cooling stages during unoccupied periods.
When the fan output is on (Terminal G), the static pressure control loop is enabled
and the bypass damper modulates to maintain the desired static pressure setpoint
based on the static pressure input reading at the rooftop controller. Use the Manual
Scroll Display feature at the rooftop controller to locate the Pressure parameter
and determine the current static pressure value.

Sequence of Operation
TEC2647Z-2 and TEC2647Z-2+PIR Zone Controllers

The sequence of operation is determined by the Johnson Controls


TEC2664Z-2 Rooftop Controller mode and the configuration parameters
preselected for the zone controller; see TEC2664Z-2 Rooftop Controller on page
43 for more information. See Figure 7 through Figure 16 for sequence of operation
examples.
PIR Occupancy Sensor Operation

The zone controller is available with or without a factory-installed PIR occupancy


sensor cover. A zone controller equipped with the PIR occupancy sensor cover
provides advanced active occupancy logic that automatically switches occupancy
levels from occupied to standby as required, when motion is sensed. This feature
results in incremental energy savings during scheduled occupied periods when the
space is unoccupied. This allows zones, such as conference rooms and storage
rooms, that are infrequently occupied to use relaxed setpoints during most of their
occupied period when the space is not being used.
The aim of using a standby setpoint is to have the system recover fairly quickly
between the standby and occupied setpoints when motion is detected in the zone.
The relaxed value of the standby setpoint must be far enough from the occupied
setpoint to warrant the energy savings of a PIR occupancy sensor cover
installation, but close enough for the system to recover quickly to ensure
occupancy comfort.
To enable the advanced occupancy logic, the following must be set at the zone
controller:

42

If a local PIR occupancy sensor cover is installed, the PIR Func parameter
must be set to on.

If a remote PIR occupancy sensor is attached to BI1, the BI1 parameter must
be set to MotionNO or MotionNC.

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

PIR Occupancy Sensor Logic

The PIR occupancy sensing function is only used during occupied periods. If
occupancy is desired during an unoccupied period, simply press the local override
button (if allowed by the local lockout level configuration). The local occupancy
toggles to override (local occupied) per the TOccTime parameter setting for
overrides.
If the PIR occupancy sensor detects no motion, the zone controller remains in the
standby mode. If motion is detected, the zone controller switches to the occupied
mode for a period of 60 minutes after the last motion was detected. When the
60-minute period expires and no additional motion is detected, the zone controller
switches back to the standby mode.
TEC2664Z-2 Rooftop Controller

The sequence of operation of the zones is commanded from the


TEC2664Z-2 Rooftop Controller on a Change of Value (COV) basis. The rooftop
controller transmits its current sequence mode to the zones, depending on the
highest or highest average PI demand. The available sequence values at the zones
are heating and cooling. There is a 2-minute delay when toggling between the
heating and cooling modes. This delay only applies when the system is switching
over from the network demand; the delay is not active when working with Comm
Lost using the return air temperature sensor or the room air temperature sensor. If
the system mode of the rooftop controller is set to off, the sequence value at the
zone is cooling by default.
Note: If no return air sensor is installed and loss of communication occurs,
control of the rooftop unit is based on the onboard sensor readings of the
rooftop controller.
The user can choose between a single highest PI demand, an average of the three
highest PI demands, or an average of the five highest PI demands.
Using the five highest PI demands as an example, five buffers are required in the
BACnet module of the rooftop controller for the PI heating demand and five
additional buffers are required for the PI cooling demand. Each time a new zone
sends its PI cooling demand, the rooftop controller compares it to the lowest of the
five values already stored and buffers it (if required). The rooftop controller
averages these five values, and the PI heating demand or PI cooling demand
controls the rooftop controller.
See Figure 7 through Figure 17 for sequence of operation examples.

49

Each item is scrolled one-by-one with the backlight in the low-level mode.
Pressing any key causes the low-level backlight to brighten to high-level mode.
When left unattended for 30 seconds after changes are made, the display resumes
auto status display scrolling.
To brighten the low-level backlight to high-level mode, simply press any key on
the face of the rooftop controller. The high-level backlight returns to low-level
mode when the rooftop controller is left unattended for 45 seconds.
If alarms are detected, they are automatically displayed at the end of the status

time as the alarm message and shuts off during the remainder of the status display
scroll. Two alarm messages can appear at any given time.
The priority of alarms is as follows:

Comm Lost: This alarm indicates that communication is lost between the
rooftop controller and the zone devices on the MS/TP Bus; however, the
rooftop controller can remain online with the supervisory controller.

SetClock: This alarm indicates that the clock needs to be reset due to a power
failure of more than 6 hours.

DAS Alrm: This alarm indicates a high or low alarm at the discharge air
sensor. If no discharge air sensor is connected (-40.0F/-40.0C reading), the
associated functions (such as lockouts and alarms) are disabled. If the
discharge air sensor is shorted (122.0F/50.0C reading), the associated
functions (such as lockouts and alarms) are enabled.

Service: This alarm indicates there is a service alarm, as per the configurable
Digital Input DI1.

Filter: This alarm indicates that the filters are dirty and need to be replaced, as
per the configurable Digital Input DI1.

System Commissioning
For the TEC Zoning Control System to operate properly, proper system
commissioning must be accomplished at all levels of the control system. A
properly operating control system depends heavily on both the demand and the
response functions being fully functional at the rooftop controller level, as well as
at the zone controller level.
Proper Commissioning of the Zone Controllers

At the zone controller level, be certain of the following:

54

Properly design and size the VAV zone damper and the air distribution system
to accommodate peak load demands when the rooftop controller delivers the
capacity.

Check that the full span of the damper blade rotation is available to the VAV
actuator and the zone controller. There should be no mechanical limits on the
damper blade rotation, since those limits are set by the zone controller
parameters.

Set the VAV actuator for either Direct Acting (DA) or Reverse Acting (RA). If
the actuator is reversed, the zone demand can never be satisfied. If the zone is a
voting zone, it continuously sends demand signals to the rooftop controller.
TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

Properly set the Min Pos, Max Pos, and MaxHTPos parameters during zone
damper balancing. If the local VAV trunk is equipped with a main trunk-side
takeoff directional adjustment blade, additional adjustments are also required.

Evaluate and set the parameters for the reheat lockouts, setpoint limits, user
interface lockouts, and demand weight adjustments to the rooftop controller,
according to the installation requirements.

Set all zone controllers associated with the same rooftop controller to the same
RTC MAC parameter setting as the rooftop controller.

Proper Commissioning of the Rooftop Controller

At the rooftop controller level, be certain of the following:

Size the heating and cooling capacity of the rooftop controller to respond to the
highest instantaneous peak loads from the associated zones.

Incorporate the proper strategy and system layout into the mechanical system
architecture.

Properly commission and verify the bypass damper system. A wrongly set up
bypass damper system may result in all of the zones being properly
commissioned and sized, but the rooftop controller still may not deliver the
capacity to the zones.

Evaluate and set the parameters for the heating and cooling lockouts, control
type strategy, discharge air high and low limits, static pressure transducer
range, and static pressure transducer setpoint, according to the installation
requirements.

Verify the input/output operation of the rooftop controller, as well as the


onboard economizer operation.

System Operation Checklists

We recommend keeping a checklist of all control system milestones and


configuration settings at system startup. Keep these records as a reference with the
control system when it is fully commissioned. The checklists included in Table 16
through Table 22 are provided as a guideline, and can be very helpful when
servicing the control system.

MS/TP Device Mapping into an NAE


Preparation
Before mapping a zone controller or a rooftop controller into an NAE:
1. Decide which point objects within the zone controller and rooftop controller
need to be mapped. Only map the point objects that need to be viewed on a
regular basis, since excessive mapping lowers system performance. Suggested
Graphical User Interface (GUI), Configuration (Cfg), and Status (Sta) point
objects for mapping are included in Table 23 and Table 24. In addition,
monitoring points may be mapped if they are used. Use the Engineering view
to examine infrequently used point objects.

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

65

Note: We recommend that all zone controller and rooftop controller configuration
parameters be set as desired prior to mapping the objects into the controller.
If any zone controller or rooftop controller configuration parameters are
altered after the objects are mapped into the controller, we recommend that
all objects be remapped. We also recommend caution when mapping
configuration parameters, as they should only be mapped if the operator is
fully familiar with their use.
2. Verify that a Field Bus is defined in the NAE. BACnet MS/TP devices attach to
a Field Bus. Refer to the BACnet MS/TP Integration with NAE Technical
Bulletin (LIT-12011013) for instructions on how to define a Field Bus.
3. For Metasys system software prior to Release 4.0, verify that a BACnet
Integration is defined for the Field Bus. The zone controller and rooftop
controller are mapped as BACnet devices under a Field Bus BACnet
Integration. Refer to the BACnet Controller Integration with NAE/NCE
Technical Bulletin (LIT-1201531) for instructions on how to define a BACnet
Integration.
Note: For Metasys system Release 4.0 or later software, this step is not
required.
At this point, the zone controller and rooftop controller (and the required point
objects inside the zone controller and rooftop controller) can be mapped.

Adding a Zone Controller


The zone controller must be added before its points can be mapped. To do this,
select the Field Bus or a folder under it (refresh the tree view, if required, to see a
newly added BACnet Integration) and choose Field Device from the Insert menu.
Note: For Metasys system software prior to Release 4.0, select the BACnet
Integration under the Field Bus (refresh the tree view, if required, to see a
newly added BACnet Integration) and choose Field Device from the Insert
menu.
Assisted Definition using Auto Discovery is the easiest way to add a new zone
controller online; however, this requires that the zone controller to be added is
connected and ready to communicate.
Device object names used with BACnet communication must be unique to fully
satisfy the requirements of BACnet MS/TP network guidelines. The zone
controller automatically selects a device object name for itself using the format
TEC2647Z-72aaa, where aaa designates the device address selected (from 004 to
127) on the MS/TP network. If this name needs to be changed by writing a new
one into the zone controller device object, that should be done before any point
objects are mapped. Be sure that the name of the new zone controller being added
to the NAE matches that of the zone controller itself.

66

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications

Device object instances used with BACnet communication must be unique to fully
satisfy the requirements of BACnet MS/TP network guidelines. The zone
controller automatically selects a device object instance for itself using the format
72aaa, where aaa designates the device address selected (from 004 to 127) on the
MS/TP network (for example, 72004, 72005). If you need to change this instance
by writing a new one into the zone controller device object, do so before any point
objects are mapped. This number goes into the Instance Number field, Network
section, Hardware tab, of the Configure step in the Insert Field Device Wizard.

Adding a Rooftop Controller


The rooftop controller must be added before its points can be mapped. To do this,
select the Field Bus or a folder under it (refresh the tree view if required to see a
newly added BACnet Integration) and choose Field Device from the Insert menu.
Note: For Metasys system software prior to Release 4.0, select the BACnet
Integration under the Field Bus (refresh the tree view if required to see a
newly added BACnet Integration) and choose Field Device from the Insert
menu.
Assisted Definition using Auto Discovery is the easiest way to add a new rooftop
controller online; however, this requires that the rooftop controller to be added is
connected and ready to communicate.
Device object names used with BACnet communication must be unique to fully
satisfy the requirements of BACnet MS/TP network guidelines. The rooftop
controller automatically selects a device object name for itself using the format
TEC2664Z-76aaa, where aaa designates the device address selected (from 004 to
127) on the MS/TP network. If you need to change this name by writing a new one
into the rooftop controller device object, do so before any point objects are
mapped. Be sure that the name of the new rooftop controller being added to the
NAE matches that of the rooftop controller itself.
Device object IDs used with BACnet communication must be unique to fully
satisfy the requirements of BACnet MS/TP network guidelines. The rooftop
controller automatically selects a device object ID for itself using the format
76aaa, where aaa designates the device address selected (from 004 to 127) on the
MS/TP network (for example, 76004, 76005). If you need to change this ID by
writing a new one into the rooftop controller device object, do so before any point
objects are mapped. Be sure that the ID of the new rooftop controller being added
to the NAE matches that of the rooftop controller itself. This number goes into the
Instance Number field, Network section, Hardware tab, of the Configure step in
the Insert Field Device Wizard.

Adding Point Objects


The required point objects must be mapped under the zone controller or rooftop
controller device. To accomplish this, select the zone controller or rooftop
controller device under the BACnet Integration (refresh the tree view, if required,
to see a newly added zone controller or rooftop controller device), and choose
Field Point from the Insert menu.
Note: For Metasys system Release 4.0 or later software, select a Field Bus or a
folder under it.
Assisted Definition using Auto Discovery is the easiest way to add new point
objects online; however, this requires that the zone controller or rooftop controller
to be mapped is connected and ready to communicate.
When mapping point objects, the point type must match the BACnet object type
(for example, AV, MV, or BI), and the point instance number must match the point
BACnet instance number.

Notes, Tips, and Things to Know


Multiple 24 VAC Zone Controller Transformers versus a
Single 24 VAC Zone Controller Transformer
If multiple 24 VAC zone controller transformers are used (one transformer for each
zone controller), be certain of the following:

Use a 20 VA or more Class 2 self-protected transformer to power all of the


components connected to each zone controller.

Respect the polarity of all of the components in the circuit, including the
analog VAV actuator, analog reheat devices, or any other equipment.

Ground the circuit if required. The common side of the circuit is connected to
earth (0 V ~ Com). To prevent ground loops, grounding is required at only one
location.

If a single 24 VAC zone controller transformer is used for multiple zones, be


certain of the following:

68

Size a fuse or circuit protection according to the maximum installed load if a


Class 1 unprotected transformer is used to power all of the components
connected to the zone controller. The load is not necessarily the same as the
maximum current available from the transformer. For example, if a 100 VA
transformer is installed and the maximum installed load is 45 VA for all of the
components connected to the zone controller, then the fused value should be
2 A maximum at 24 VAC. In all instances, the power supplied to the zone
controller must be Class 2.

Respect the polarity of all of the components in the circuit, including the
analog VAV actuator, analog reheat devices, or any other equipment.

TEC Zoning Control System for Stand-Alone and BACnet MS/TP Networked Applications
Technical Bulletin

Ground the circuit if required. The common side of the circuit is connected to
earth (0 V ~ Com). To prevent ground loops, grounding is required at only one
location.

Critical Point Checks


For proper and reliable control system operation, the system designer and/or
installer must verify and check all critical milestones of the installation. These
checks should include all other contractual aspects for the system performed
outside of the control system scope of work, including:

design-phase tasks such as load calculations, ductwork layout and sizing, and
equipment selection

construction-phase tasks such as rooftop controller installation, ductwork


installation, and required electrical work

commissioning/delivery-phase tasks such as system operational checkout,


damper balancing, and rooftop controller commissioning

Proper planning and design plays a critical role in getting an installation up and
running in an efficient manner, with fewer service calls during the initial
occupancy period.

Balancing and Capacity


Although it is not the function of the TEC Zoning Control System to correct for a
wrong initial mechanical layout and associated load calculations, the control
system does dramatically help deliver the load required by the voting zones. This
is accomplished by appropriately distributing the total available capacity of the
installed equipment to the required voting zones. If the equipment is undersized for
the peak load, the control system distributes the available capacity according to the
priorities requested to improve the comfort level of the majority of zones.
At the zone controller level, the Min Pos, Max Pos, and MaxHTPos parameters
must be properly set during zone damper balancing. If the local VAV trunk is
equipped with a main trunk-side takeoff directional adjustment blade, additional
adjustments are also required.

Occupancy Operation
Users are able to override the entire occupancy status of the TEC Zoning Control
System from the rooftop controller. When keypad lockout Level 0 or Level 1 is
enabled and the user presses the Override key, the occupancy object of the rooftop
controller changes to Temporary Occupied. All associated zone controllers with
their network handle set to Default Zone Handle also have their occupancy object
change to Temporary Occupied.

Occupancy Schedule
When viewing the rooftop controller schedule from the FX User Interface, the
screen may initially appear as scrambled. If this condition occurs, simply click the
left mouse button and the screen refreshes properly. It may be necessary to assign
text to the states of the schedule. If this is the case, assign Ordinal 2 to Occupied
and Ordinal 3 to Unoccupied via the Facets button of the Property Sheet.
For proper display when viewing the rooftop controller schedule from the
NAE User Interface, check that the schedule for each day does not have identical
Occupied and Unoccupied times. For example, a day that has both the Occupied
and Unoccupied times scheduled for 12:00 A.M. does not display correctly. If the
states of the displayed schedule do not show as Occupied and Unoccupied, it may
be necessary to edit the states text and/or default schedule command. It may take a
few minutes for the revised schedule to display at the NAE User Interface,
following schedule updates at the rooftop controller.
Scheduled commands that cross over midnight may show a gray background for
the next day. This gray background represents the continuation of the command
that existed prior to midnight.
