Digital controls

OEMCtrl’s I/O Zone 560 and 583 controllers deliver powerful control and communications features all in compact, economical packages. Highly flexible, yet easy-to-use programming tools allow customization for a wide variety of small equipment applications. Fully capable of operating in a 100% stand-alone control mode, OEMCtrl’s I/O Zone controllers can connect to a Building Automation System (BAS) using any of today’s most popular protocols, such as BACnet, Modbus, N2, and LonWorks. The I/O Zone 560 and 583 also support communication to OEMCtrl’s line of intelligent space sensors and keypad/display units.


Key Features and Benefits

  • I/O point count: 5 digital outputs (relayed), 6 universal inputs, (583 adds 2 potentiometer inputs and 3 analog outputs)
  • Built-in protocol support: BACnet (ARC156 and MS/TP), Modbus RTU, and N2. Protocols and baud rates are DIP switch selectable.
  • LonWorks optional plug-in communications boards
  • On-board battery-backed real-time clock is standard, thus enabling full stand-alone scheduling capabilities, as well as historical trend data storage, and alarm event time-stamping.
  • Custom-programmable using our powerful Eikon graphic programming tool. Eikon allows you to create graphic logic sequences for your application, which can be fully simulated off-line (with Eikon’s simulation tool), and graphically viewable live on your equipment - the ultimate diagnostic tool.
  • Powerful, high-speed 16-bit processor with 1MB Flash memory and 512 KB of battery-backed RAM - plenty of room for even demanding and complex applications. Software modifications or upgrades can be downloaded locally or remotely - no chip replacements necessary.
  • Local laptop computer access ports provided on both the I/O Zone 560 and the intelligent RS series sensors, which enable full diagnostic and configuration capabilities.

Applications

When used with Enertech’s Compact Packaged or Water-to-Water water source heat pumps, the I/O Zone family of controllers provides a lot of power in a small footprint. Now, regardless of the size of the application, you can have customized control sequences with builtin multi-protocol support; simplified integration into the BAS (Building Automation System), while staying competitive from a cost standpoint.
