The Automated Logic® PlantCTRL™ controller is an integral component of the WebCTRL® building automation system.
This factory-engineered, cutting-edge control solution offers algorithms designed to provide control over all aspects of a chiller plant, coordinating the control of chillers, pumps, and towers into a finely tuned, cohesive system.
The solution consists of a dedicated controller, standard dashboards, I/O expanders, and a library of factory-engineered control programs that are specifically designed to cover the most common chiller plant configurations.
KEY FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Supports library-driven programming using EquipmentBuilder. Quickly choose from a library of factory-engineered and tested control programs that are specifically designed to cover the most common chiller plant configurations, eliminating the need for custom logic
Supports EIKON® graphical programming tool, an object-oriented tool that provides complete flexibility for any custom control sequence that you need
Supports live, visual displays of control logic, which uses real-time operational data and aids in optimizing and troubleshooting system operations
Embedded trends and alarms provide insight on chiller plant performance and also aid in system troubleshooting and maintenance
Supports 20 I/O points on the controller, and up to (6) MEX I/O expansion modules in panel configuration or remotely mounted up to 100 ft away for scalable solutions (164 I/O total)
Chiller Plant Dashboards
Pre-configured screens for both air-cooled and water-cooled plants
Graphical and numeric energy use data
Default screens for 8 chiller plants; larger plants are easily accommodated
Metric and imperial units, as well as local currency values, are also supported
Compatible with any manufacturer’s air or water-cooled chillers
Supports integration to chiller plant equipment using BACnet, Modbus®, and LonWorks® protocols
Responds to the building load, automatically starting, staging, and stopping the plant, resetting the chilled water supply temperature, and matching tonnage produced to the tonnage required by the building
