PlantCTRL® Chiller Plant Solution

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.

Features
  • 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 flexbility 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
  • Suports 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 watercooled 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
System Benefits
  • 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
