Delta's HVAC Controls offering
Delta Controls hardware is Native BACnet. Native BACnet means that the database objects in the controller can be seen by other BACnet systems and that data can be exchanged between other BACnet devices without the need for a Gateway (separate piece of hardware that maps data between Communication Protocols). Delta's hardware is easily added to other vendor’s BACnet architectures because we have implemented many of the BACnet standards optional properties and have rendered them writeable. Delta Controls System Managers (DSM), System Controllers (DSC) and Application Controllers (DAC), support peer-to-peer data communication.
These devices are used to route network traffic. Delta Controls System Managers do not have I/O on board, but can have the same database as other System Controllers. Features include a Real-Time Clock (RTC), battery back up and an EIA-232 serial port. System Managers are fully programmable.
Delta Controls System Controllers (DSC) are capable of operating in a stand-alone manner. They have I/O on-board, a Real-Time Clock (RTC), battery back up, an EIA-232 serial port and can support a BACnet MS/TP subnet. System Controllers are fully programmable. All of these products are shipped with housings (excluding the DSC-R2424E which is a retro-fit board designed to replace the Intelli-Con panel in an existing enclosure).
These devices are designed to be used in concert with the Delta Controls System Controllers or System Managers. They are fully programmable and may support a BACnet MS/TP subnet. All of these products come with a housing. The Application Controllers have a built-in software clock, and flash memory back up.
The DZNT product line is suitable for controlling basic VAV, fan powered, or VVT sequences via its configurable algorithm, with choices for 3-stage digital reheat, tri-state with 2nd stage digital reheat, or analog with 2nd stage digital reheat.
Some advanced features include auto heat/cool changeover, digital time clock or motion sensor input, timed overrides for occupancy handling, and configurable reverse acting reheat stages.
A Delta Controls Network Thermostat is any networkable temperature sensor with I/O built onto it. These products communicate on a BACnet MS/TP network at 76.8 baud. They do not support a BACnet MS/TP or LINKnet subnet.
The DFM series of products is designed to reside on Delta Controls LINKnet network and provide remote I/O for the SYSTEM or SUBNET Level controllers. They can be connected to a DSC/DAC subnet.
Some Field Modules can be directly connected to a BACnet MS/TP network segment (such as the DFM-200/400). When installed on BACnet MS/TP, they have their own device object and their objects may be read or written to using BACnet services. DFM models with inputs only, will be permitted to reside on the BACnet MS/TP network.
Smoke Control UL864
Delta Controls received authorization from the UL labs to apply the UL mark (Edition 9) to specific products suitable for UL864 applications. Products approved to use this mark are referred to as “Listed Products”.
UL864 certification is particularly applicable for meeting the requirements of Smoke Control Systems, also referred to as Fire-Protective Signaling Systems, as defined by the following standards:
Delta Controls Software Products
enteliWEB is a web based application that combines the power of enterprise dashboards with easy to use facility management tools. Customizable Energy Management dashboards and powerful energy reports give managers the tools to reduce consumption and lower costs. Task driven alarm management and system dashboards allow operators to quickly visualize and prioritize their work, keeping the facility running comfortably and efficiently.
ORCAview is Delta Controls’ Operator Workstation (OWS). It combines both simple to use front-end graphics with powerful, real-time system tools. The OWS operates on Windows Platforms (Windows 98/2000/XP) and incorporates many of its characteristics such as right-click context sensitive menus and F1 Help menus.
ORCAview has a built-in object-oriented system navigation and operation tool, called Navigator. Navigator has built-in real-time program editing capabilities for the controllers programs and can be used with Dragand-Link technology with Illustrator, Delta Controls Graphic Editor.
ORCAview communicates using both standard BACnet network services and Delta Controls INTELLI-sys protocols. This facilitates interfacing with third-party. BACnet products as well as Delta Controls legacy products. Using its built-in BACnet IP capability, ORCAview can communicate on Wide Area Networks (WAN), which are connected over Intranets or Internet. ORCAview can also communicate on Ethernet Local Area Networks (LANs). Using BACnet PTP protocol, ORCAview can connect to any DSC model controller over an EIA-232 connection directly or through a modem for remote access.
ORCAweb is a web-based front-end for use by both facility staff and tenants. It is a computer based Web server that connects to both the building automation network and to the facility LAN. ORCAweb is based on client-server architecture and has no limits on the number of simultaneous users. You can view graphics, device architecture, object properties, or tenant portal pages based on your specific access privileges.
ORCAweb has several functions that make it ideally suited for use in a large facility with many tenants who are connected to the facility LAN. The tenant portal pages allow each tenant to view a customizable web page that displays the status of the mechanical and lighting systems that serve their office area. The Virtual Stat® is a simple application that resides on the Windows Tray. It allows the tenant to display their current space temperature. When they double-click the Virtual Stat icon a larger, more detailed user interface is displayed. ORCAweb also has a Navigator view that displays the current system architecture and allows the operator to manipulate properties of individual objects.
Historian is an ORCAview or ORCAweb add-on, or a stand-alone application, which allows Trend Log and alarm data to be permanently archived in a standard SQL database. Thousands of trend logs can be stored in a single Historian server simply by right-clicking a Trend Log and selecting Add to Historian.
Intelligent scheduling algorithms automatically determine the safest and most efficient intervals to archive data. Data can be backed up and stored permanently using standard database tools or by using the simple Historian Database Management Tool (HDMT) included with the Historian package.
The Delta Controls ODBC Driver allows third-party applications (Enterprise Applications) to interact with any Delta Controllers or BACnet controllers.
Enterprise Applications can consist of off-the-shelf programs such as Crystal Reports, Microsoft Access, Microsoft Excel or any other ODBC compliant application.
