Device List

When the MAP Gateway is connected to a network, it detects the devices on that network and populates the Device List. You can select individual devices to view or command directly from the list or by using the Choose a device drop-down list. Selecting a device takes you to that device's home page.

If a device in the Device List has a down arrow icon and the device row is light blue, its points were not downloaded to a MAP Gateway. Click the device to read and show the points. A right pointing arrow in a white device field indicates that the points have been read and may be viewed or edited by clicking the device row. If a device row is grey, the device is seen on the network, but is not supported by MAP and its points cannot be viewed or edited.

If you do not see devices that you believe should be on the network, or that have been added to the network since a MAP Gateway was added, click the Rediscover Devices button to have the MAP Gateway clear and repopulate the device list. Rediscover is added to the kabob menu in the upper right.

Tailored Summaries

MAP allows you to apply summary definition files to a set of devices discovered on an MS/TP trunk.

To optimize the viewing area of the points per device being displayed, the Tailored Summary MAP view is in the form of a tile for each controller, instead of a table. Once a summary definition is applied, you can sort the tiles based on one of the points in the definition. You can also select one or more devices in the view and command or override points found on each controller.

Tailored Summary Reports - Data from the Tailored Summary feature can now be saved, allowing users to record bulk verification results and other Tailored Summary data.

Embedded Tailored Summaries - Operator Override Summary, Out of Service Summary, and Command Summary (a combined OO and OOS summary) have been added to the embedded Tailored Summaries. Override and Out-of-Service commands can be viewed and released from a single Tailored Summary.

MAP 5.1 adds a new embedded summary to display diagnostics from applications with Exponentially Weighted Moving Averages (EWMAs) information. EWMAs are values for output control and data analysis, and can be used to check diagnostics.

Live Trend

The Live Trend feature allows a technician to quickly select multiple points on a controller to poll and trend in real time.

During the trend session, any point of the device can be commanded or overridden to see the reaction in the trend view session. You can also configure the layout of where the points are graphed and save the trended data collected during the session into a report.

Poi​nt Grouping – Trende​​d points can now be grouped into separate graphs either by Units, High-Low Range attributes of the point, or by user selection.

Trend Templates – Helpful feature that allows you to trend a standard set of points on an AHU, FCU, or other equipment. Trend Templates save you time from having to select the points to trend each time. Simply select the Templates tab and select the template you previously created. Note that templates use the point’s BACoid.

Tools, Sites, and Trunks

MAP provides a framework for technicians, installers, and balancers to perform basic commissioning and validation steps.

Note: Data that is part of Tools is stored in the web browser’s cache. If you clear website data from your browser, the Tool’s sites, trunks, and commissioning data are lost.

Sites and Trunks

A site is a freely definable organizational unit for Tools that maintains a list of the trunks you have assigned to each site. A site and its trunks are usually associated with a certain location in your facility and are used to associate trunks with certain equipment.

Device and Point Checkout

The Device Checkout validation option allows an installer or technician to verify the point wiring for each controller on an MS/TP trunk and provide a report on each device that captures the verification steps.

Point Attribute Write - Users can access common point attributes, with the ability to change the value, where applicable, such as changing the Offset for point calibration.

Feedback Points - Feedback points can be selected while testing outputs in the Point Checkout feature. The feedback points can be passed or failed by the user, allowing users to verify multiple points at one time.

Manual Step Test - The analog output Step Test has been updated. The user will control the number of steps to take, if the test should start with a command to the 0% position, and when the test should proceed to the next step.

Bulk Verification

Similar to Tailored Summaries, Bulk Verification allows users to view the network by a predefined template, perform control loop testing, save results, and indicate which controllers passed or failed testing.

AirFlow Balancing

The AirFlow Balancing function allows a Balancing Contractor to set the flow parameters using the VAV application in an intuitive user interface. During a balancing session, the velocity pressure autocalibration process is initiated before the balancing step occurs and the polarity setting on the damper is reversed if the actuator was linked incorrectly.

For critical zones like lab spaces, a dual point balancing process is available to improve the accuracy of the control over the full range of flow. The balancing feature results is packaged for each device into a summary report.

Box Flow Test

Use the Box Flow Test to verify and diagnose the operation of Single Duct, Dual Duct, and Supply Exhaust applications. The Box Flow Test module provides the timing, output control, and data-gathering functions for testing the flow control performance of a VAV Box Controller application. MAP 5.1 adds a selectable list of VAV manufacturers and their associated VAV box size and K-Factor. You can personalize the list by importing a CSV formated file with an .mkf extension.

Unattended Download

SCT 14.2 or later includes the option to create a MAP Export File with Applications. This file, when imported into the MAP, is used to load the applications and firmware into CGx, CVx Equipment Controller family.

Punch List Tagging

You can tag ​notes within the Device and Point Checkout and Airflow Balancing features to be added to a Punch List. The Punch List can then be viewed through the embedded Punch List Tailored Summary and reported out by selecting a Punch List option when generating your Site report.

Create Report

Provide a new Microsoft Excel-based report for Site Information, Device Summaries, Point Testing Details, and Balancing Reports.

Reports has been updated to allow the user to generate reports without being connected to a communication trunk.
