Controller simplifies installation and commissioning
The ‘click-and-go’ concept of the Lion controller for HVAC control and energy management from CentraLine by Honeywell dramatically reduces the time and cost of system installation and commissioning. The concept comprised a freely programmable control module and a set of specially designed input/output modules. All have an innovative new way of installing wiring and commissioning. Lion has double the memory of Honeywell’s Excel 500 controller and can perform a huge range of energy-management functions, including optimum start/stop, night purge and maximum load demand. A patented panel bus concept enables installers to set up and commission a controller in minutes. Lion controllers can be installed on a DIN rail or distributed around a building using the LonWorks communications protocol. The controller and I/O modules click onto a DIN rail. Interconnections are quickly made using plug-in bridging units. Auxiliary terminals and electronic modules simply plug into sockets. Push-in terminals speed up external wiring. Controllers perform commissioning automatically, with the installer simply setting the module address using a HEX switch.
