System controls by Data Aire are capable of precisely monitoring one or more air conditioning units. These easily programmed controls provide maximum flexibility in defining total system operation. With the addition of a communication card, which can be installed at the factory or in the field, the units can communicate with most popular building management systems (BMS).
System Controls can be remotely accessed to receive any alarms or detailed reports.
dap4 control system is the fastest and most advance microprocessor controller available on the market today. It has all the functionality of previous Data Aire controllers and provides a solid platform for future growth. The system is comprised of two components – a display module and a control module. The display module includes a backlit liquid crystal display and six buttons for easy programming and communication. All programming, status and alarm conditions are displayed on the module in easy to read verbiage. The control module is mounted inside the unit and connected to the display module via a special “telephone” like cable.
The DAP III is a self-contained multi-microprocessor based control and monitor system. It features flash memory and a USB port – allowing quick updates or modifications to firmware. DAP III was developed on a modular design platform with the basic components being the Display Module and Control Module.
The Display Module features two rows of 40 character liquid crystal display for easy programming and diagnostic functions. It also houses the optional communications card, allowing communication with most major building management systems (BMS). The Control Module is mounted on the unit and connected using a CAT-5 cable. These two modules comprise the most basic control system, the Mini DAP III, which is an option on all Data Aire ceiling mounted systems.
Floor units also use the Display and Control Module but require the Control Expansion Module to provide additional control and monitor functionality. All three modules are standard on floor units. When additional input, output or control logic is required, Analog and Relay Modules can be added. These can be field installed.
The Data Alarm Processor-II (DAP-II) is the earlier, legacy version of the now standard Data Alarm Processor III, and was included on all floor-mounted units for over ten years prior to the introduction of the DAP III in late 2008. It was also an option for ceiling-mounted units during that same period of time.
The Mini Data Alarm Processor-II is a, one row, 16 character control that not only monitors the controlled environment’s humidity, air flow, and cleanliness, but also provides alarm history and an automatic self-test of the microprocessor on system start-up. Multiple messages are displayed by scrolling from each message to the next. All messages are presented on the liquid crystal display (LCD). Multiple alarms are displayed sequentially in order of occurrence. In addition, the Mini Data Alarm Processor-II has an inclusive seven day programming format for unoccupied or low demand periods. This secondary schedule can minimize equipment runtimes, reducing energy consumption and provide cost savings.
The Data Aire Relay Autochangeover (DARA-4) ensures that all units in operation at a location wear at an equal rate. There are a variety of options: The controller has the capability of rotating 2, 3, or 4 units. The rotation can be set to 4, 8, 12, or 24 hours, or 7, 14, or 30 days. You can also choose not to rotate any units if desired.
