Functional description

Expansion module EM-IP is used to integrate EASYLAB controllers Type TCU3 or EASYLAB adapter modules Type TAM into an IP-based network and connect them to the central BMS using the BACnet/IP or Modbus/IP protocol.

The BACnet or Modbus interface supports the EASYLAB room operating mode concept. It is possible to set operating mode defaults in order to control different volume flow rates for daytime and night-time operation; it is also possible to increase or reduce the air change rate (volume flow rate setpoint change), e.g. to influence the room temperature.

Using the BACnet or Modbus interface, an individual alarm management system can be set up by consolidating configurable EASYLAB alarms. The interface also enables the transfer of actual operating values such as volume flow rates and damper blade position for a controller or for all controllers in a room.

BACnet/IP mode and the webserver allow for trend logging, alarming and scheduling for selected data points. The integral microSD card is used for trend logging. The integral webserver is used to configure EM-IP, to access trend logs and event logs, and to enter controller data using the web UI.

The optional real time clock (RTC) expansion module can be used for trend logging or event logging if, for example, EM-IP is not integrated with a network of if no time server is available in the network.
