Product Code Numbers

FX-PCV1832-0: Programmable VAV Box N2 Controller for cooling only and cooling with reheat and fan control applications

Supply Voltage

24 VAC (nominal, 20 VAC minimum/30 VAC maximum), 50/60 Hz, Power Supply Class 2 (North America), Safety Extra-Low Voltage (SELV) (Europe)

Power Consumption

10 VA typical, 14 VA maximum

Note: The VA ratings do not include any power supplied to the peripheral devices connected to Binary Outputs (BOs) or Configurable Outputs (COs), which can consume up to 12 VA for each BO or CO, for a possible total consumption of an additional 60 VA (maximum).

Ambient Conditions

Operating: 0 to 50°C (32 to 122°F)

Storage: -40 to 70°C (-40 to 158°F)


Inputs/Outputs, SA bus, and Supply Power: 6.3 mm (1/4 in.) Spade Lugs

N2/FC Bus Pluggable Screw Terminal Block

TSTAT Modular Port: RJ-45 8-Pin Modular Jack

Controller Addressing

DIP switch set

N2 Open Protocol: Valid field controller device addresses 1–253

BACnet MS/TP: Valid field controller device addresses 4–127

(Device addresses 0–3 and 128–255 are reserved and not valid field controller addresses.)

Communications Bus

N2 Open Protocol:

N2/FC Bus: 1.5 mm (18 AWG) standard 3-wire, twisted, shielded cable recommended between the supervisory controller and field controllers.

BACnet MS/TP Protocol:

SA Bus: 0.6 mm (22 AWG) stranded, 4-wire (2-twisted pairs) shielded cable recommended from the FX-PCV controller for network sensors and other sensor/actuator devices; includes a terminal to source 15 VDC supply power from FX-PCV to SA Bus devices.

Note: For more information, refer to the N2 Communications Bus Technical Bulletin (LIT-636018).

Input and Output Capabilities

3 - Universal Inputs: Defined as 0–10 VDC, 4–20 mA, 0–600k ohm, or Binary Dry Contact

3 - Binary Outputs: Defined as 24 VAC Triac (internal power source)

2 - Configurable Outputs: Defined as 0–10 VDC or 24 VAC Triac BO

Analog Input/Analog Output Accuracy

Analog Input: 15-bit resolution on UIs

Analog Output: 0–10 VDC ± 200 mV

Air Pressure Differential Sensor

Range: -1.5 in. to 1.5 in. W.C.

Performance Characteristics:

Accuracy: ±0.75% Full Span Maximum (±0.0225 in. W.C.)

Note: Combined error due to calibration, accuracy, non-linearity, and temperature variation.

Typical accuracy at zero (null) pressure is ±0.003 in. W.C.

Actuator Rating

4 N·m (35 lb·in) minimum shaft length = 44 mm (1-3/4 in.)


Mounts to damper shaft using single set screw and to duct with single mounting screw


(Height x Width x Depth)

165 x 125 x 73 mm (6.5 x 4.92 x 2.9 in.)

Center of Output Hub to Center of Captive Spacer: 135 mm (5-5/16 in.)
