Table 1. Box Flow Test - Connection Window

Field

Description

Connection Types NxE Passthru

Indicates an NxE Passthru connection.

Bluetooth

Indicates a Bluetooth connection.

MAP 4.2+ / BACnet Router

Indicates a MAP 4.2+/BACnet Router connection.

ZigBee

Indicates a ZigBee connection.

Direct Ethernet

Indicates a Direct Ethernet connection.

Connection Parameters NxE Passthru Supervisory Device

Selected Supervisory Controller. Appears only when you selected the NxE Passthru connection type.

Trunk Number

Selected trunk. Appears only when you selected the NxE Passthru connection type.

Bluetooth Baud Rate

Use to select a baud rate of 9600, 19200, 38400, or 76800. Appears only when you select the Bluetooth connection type.

Bluetooth COM Port

Indicates the COM port for the Bluetooth connection. Appears only when you select the Bluetooth connection type.

MAP 4.2+/BACnet Router Address

Indicates the IP address of the router. Appears only when you select the MAP 4.2+/BACnet Router connection type.

Field Description

Filter

Use to filter the selection.

Selection (Check Box)

Indicates the devices to test.

Device Name

Displays a list of devices that contain a Box Flow Test module.

MAC Address

MAC address of the field device.

Instance Number Displays the device's BACnet instance number.

System Name

Loaded device’s system name.

Starting Position

Indicates the damper position set by the Box Flow Test at the start of the test. You can modify the damper starting position.

Note: To set all dampers to the open position, right-click the Starting Position column header and then click Set Same Position. To set alternating positions, right-click Starting Position and then click Set Alternating Position.

Flow Loop

Indicates the flow loop being tested: Supply Damper, Exhaust, Cold Duct, or Hot Duct. A single duct VAV application has only one flow loop: the supply damper. A supply/exhaust application has two flow loops processed in one controller address: the supply damper and the exhaust damper. In dual duct applications where more than one flow loop per controller is tested, possible loops include hot deck, cold deck, and exhaust dampers.

State

Current (or last) state of the test for each device. For detailed explanations on possible states, see the Box Flow Test section.

Begin Test

Starts the Box Flow Test.

Read Results

Box Flow Test results for State, Results Summary, and Airflow readings on the Results tab.

Cancel Test

Cancels the test.

Actuator Stroke Time

Amount of time, in seconds, it takes the actuator to move from the fully closed to fully opened position.

Bidirectional Test

Indicates whether the Box Flow Text is bidirectional or single. When the Bidirectional Test is false, the test causes the damper to stroke only in one direction from the starting point. When the Bidirectional Test is true, the test causes the damper to make the return part of the test.

Display Precision

Number of decimal places to display for each airflow reading. The default value is hundredths.
