Large product family
Provides a wide range of point mix to meet application requirements and allows for the addition of one or more PCXs to provide even more I/O capacity.
Standard hardware and software platform
Uses a common hardware design throughout the family line to support standardized wiring practices and installation workflows. It also uses a common software design to support the use of a single tool for control applications, commissioning, and troubleshooting to minimize technical training.
Universal Inputs, configurable Outputs, and point expansion modules
Allow multiple signal options to provide input/output flexibility.
Auto-tuned control loops
Proportional Adaptive Control (P-Adaptive) and Pattern Recognition Adaptive Control (PRAC) deliver continuous control loop tuning, which reduces commissioning time, eliminates change-of season re-commissioning, and reduces wear and tear on actuators.
Standard BACnet protocol
Provides interoperability with Johnson Controls and third-party BAS products that use the widely accepted BACnet standard.
BACnet Testing Laboratories™ (BTL) listed
Ensures interoperability with other BTL-listed devices. BTL is a third-party agency that validates BAS vendor products meet the BACnet industry-standard protocol.
Models to support communication protocols that are switchable between BACnet MS/TP and N2
At CCT Release 10.1, a new capability allows controllers to be configured to communicate using either the BACnet MS/TP or the N2 field bus networking protocol. The operation of the PCX is not affected by the selection of the BACnet MS/TP or the N2 protocol in the host controller.
Models to support BACnet/SC and BACnet/IP communications
The PCA4911 and the PCV1930 communicate over the BACnet/SC or BACnet/IP protocol. This allows more flexibility in choosing the devices for your site's network. BACnet/SC is a new protocol that provides a secure method of communication on IP networks. It uses standards widely accepted by the IT community and eliminates many of the IT concerns.
Note: You can upgrade existing PCV1930 units in the field to support BACnet/SC, but this model is discontinued from manufacturing.
Wireless ZFR and ZFR Pro support
Wireless ZFR and ZFR Pro support provides a wireless alternative to hard-wired MS/TP networking, offering application flexibility and mobility with minimal disruption to building occupants, and also simplifies and speeds up replacements.
Optional local User Interface display
Allows convenient monitoring and adjusting capabilities at the local device.
32-Bit microprocessor
Ensures optimum performance and meets industry specifications.
End-of-Line (EOL) switch in MS/TP field controllers
Enables field controllers to be terminating devices on the communications bus.
Pluggable communications bus and supply power terminal blocks
Expedite installation and troubleshooting.
Writable flash memory
Allows standard or customized applications to be downloaded from the Controller Configuration Tool (CCT) and enables persistent application data.
